Great space had a lovely vacation!
"The space is basic but exactly what we needed for a trip with two toddlers. The train going by through the day was a great distraction for them and at night we used a sound machine to stop the train noise. The best feature for us was the front yard, a great space for letting little ones loose and eating outside. We walked to the beach everyday, multiple times and walked the town as well. The space had all the necessities, even beach towels and beach toys! The owner was accessible and very personable. We will definitely be back in the future."

"My wife and I and 2 kids stayed here from 9-21-15 - 9-25-15. The cottage is in an excellent location. Close to the beach and the village. The cottage was neat clean and comfortable. The cottage was fully equipped with anything you may need. There was even boogie boards, and wagon and sand toys which we took to the beach. I also enjoyed the BBQ in the backyard. Carlsbad is beautiful. Michael was on the spot and very helpful with anything we needed. Five stars!"

"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."

"This place has it all and more! The kitchen was unbelievable, all the amenities were over the top outstanding. We had 2 families, which included a total of 4 young children (ages 1-5 yrs old) stay here for a week for a family wedding near by. We were able to walk to the beach, restaurants, stores. We had a large group of family over for a big dinner the day after the wedding and everyone was in awe, especially for the price! With the indoor and outdoor space, it held everyone very very comfortably. Also, the underground garage was very spacious. It had all the beach towels, toys, chairs we could ever need. Plus a HUGE wagon and a double jogging stroller!!! They also provided a VERY LARGE pack-n-play, high chair and baby gates for your youngest little one. The owner was extremely helpful during the reservation process and greeting us when we arrived. I can not say enough good things about this place and we will definitely come back next year! We plan on make this place our family getaway every year."
