"The view is just like the pictures of the listing, the neighborhood is very quiet. The beach is a very short walk away, though the owners were very considerate and did include beach parking pass should you choose to walk there. The property is well taken care of and very clean. There is a nice TV and DVD player, but if you want Netflix and Amazon, you should remember to bring your laptop or tablet.
The kitchen has everything you need to cook, though the knives are showing its age and there were no sharpener. If you like to cook steak on your vacation, avoid the gas grill, it is suitable for burgers and not steak. Use the charcoal grill that the owner has also included. The fire pit is also a very nice thing to have when you are lounging at night in the cool beach weather.
Like most older beach houses, this one has no AC, but if you keep the windows open at night you do get the nice ocean breeze.
All in all, we very much enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here again if we do come back to Carlsbad."

"My family flew back into California from all over the US for a family reunion at the beach. This property was the perfect location! Walk down the steps to the sand or out the front door to a myriad of shops and restaurants! We parked our car and took it out only once to Lego Land. The house itself was near perfect! It was very clean and comfortable. The huge picture window in the living room offered a fantastic view of the ocean, beach (where our family camped all day), dolphin watching, and beautiful sunsets. We rented the two bottom units, which were connected by an inside staircase for easy access. There were two babies (2 mo and 11 mo) and a three-year old with us. The house was mostly kid friendly and we were not disturbed by each other. The kitchen was well appointed - small but very functional. The balcony off the living room was perfect for kids to walk/crawl to play or for adults to sit for a moment's peace. Each bedroom had it's own bathroom and there was a powder room to boot. The downstairs unit had a patio right off the living room and kitchen - was perfect for bar-be-queing.
The downside was minimal: No patio off the upper levels; we all-4-units shared a space below, which was cordoned off from each other. The problem was that we overlooked parties of people in their hot tubs to see the beach both from our unit and from our patios, as well as heard their "fun" roars of laughter. It was never out of hand, just there."
