  • Perfect Family Reunion Vacation Home

    "This home (yes, it more of a home than just a house) more than lived up to its billing and our expectations. The location of the house is perfect. It’s a 30-45 minute drive (depending on traffic) from the San Diego airport, and just a mile from Interstate 5 with quick access to Legoland, the San Diego Zoo, etc. The home is just a few steps from the beach and a pleasant half-mile walk to the village with all its great eating and shopping establishments. There’s a great (a little pricey) restaurant next door to the home with aromas that beg you to dine with them. However, we took advantage of the home’s spacious kitchen and the gas grill on the covered patio to fix most of our meals. The house has everything one might need except for food, clothes, and personal toiletries. The kitchen is well-equipped with lots of cooking utensils, dishware, etc. They have toys for kids, toys for the pool, and beach chairs and an umbrella for the beach. They even provide bathroom soaps and shampoos like a resort hotel. The ocean view from the covered patio was AWESOME, the defining feature of the house for us. It offered a great view of the surfers and exercise fanatics each morning and the gorgeous sunsets and moonlit ocean views each night. It was great for people watching in general. The home is right on the road, but traffic noise was not a problem (even the loud motorcycles) as the bedrooms are on the back of the house. The pool and spa were a little tricky to operate (and we are experienced pool/spa owners), but they were perfect for relaxing during the day or at night. Pam and Al are fantastic, gracious owners. This is their dream home, so the numerous taped notes were understandable and no problem for us (as opposed to some previous Arizona reviewers). We had family from Las Vegas, Austin, and Oklahoma converge here for our annual family reunion. We generally try to go someplace different each year, but this home makes a strong argument for returning soon."

  • Great place to stay

    "My wife and I stayed in the Unit for two weeks. Located directly across from the beach with easy access to beach. Great location for beach and town. Unit is older but well kept. Owners were very friendly and easy to work with. I would stay again without question."

  • Wonderful water front condo!

    "Or stay a five weeks at this condo was truly wonderful! We have children and grandchildren that live in Carlsbad and they were over every day – everyone always had a good time and really enjoyed the water. There was plenty of space for everyone. The neighbors were very friendly and full of information. The landlord is very attentive and always there to meet any needs or any answer any questions we had. We will be staying here again next July and looking forward to our time!"

  • Beautiful home with private pool-near beach and village

    "Great home, there were 5 of us who fit comfortably. Our favorite was the private fenced in pool, we used it several times each day. Short walk to beach and village. Only downfall is it's near the train tracks but of 5 people in our group, that only bothered 1. We would love to stay there again."

Carlsbad Travel Tips

If you love spending time in the sun, it’s time to plan a trip to Carlsbad, where you can experience more than 200 bright, sunny days a year. Carlsbad is a seaside city situated on a lovely 7-mile stretch of Pacific coastline in North San Diego County. You’ll be just 35 miles north of San Diego, where you can experience even more excitement.

This Californian city is a welcoming community with world-class golf, relaxing spas and plenty of shopping to enjoy, as well as museums, outdoor spaces and other cultural attractions to explore year-round.

Things to Do in Carlsbad

- LEGOLAND: If you were, or still are, a fan of the eternally popular building blocks, you can’t miss out on LEGOLAND. There are more than 60 rides, attractions and shows that the whole family can enjoy. At the entrance, Bronte greets you, a bright red welcoming dinosaur standing 9 feet tall and 24 feet long made entirely of LEGOS. Inside, check out Dino Land, Duplo, Fun Town, Pirate Shores and so much more!

- Oceanside Pier: The first pier was built in 1888, but was destroyed by storms in the winter of 1890. At the foot of the pier you’ll find the Junior Seau Pier Amphitheatre, which hosts a variety of events throughout the year. The pier is a popular place for fishing, so grab your tackle box and pole and settle in for an afternoon waiting for the fish to bite. You can also grab a meal at Ruby’s Diner, a 1950s-style diner, or try your hand at surfing at the north and south sides of the pier.

- Museum of Making Music: If you find pleasure in museums and music, the Museum of Making Music brings together two of your passions. The museum displays public exhibits relating to the history of American popular music, the creation of musical instruments and the history of music production from the 1890s through present day. The galleries feature more than 450 vintage instruments and artifacts, as well as hundreds of audio samples and an area where you can interact hands-on with different instruments. The MoMM also holds public events, performances and lectures about music.

- Carlsbad State Beach: It’s a protected beach that is part of the state park system and features cool coastal bluffs. Carlsbad State Beach is the perfect place to take a refreshing swim, catch a wave on a surfboard, fish or check out local aquatic life while scuba diving. The amenities include showers, bathrooms and more, so you’ll be covered if you need to change out of your swimsuit to head to a local eatery for lunch or dinner.

- Carlsbad Flower Fields: Take some time to stop and smell the roses at Carlsbad Flower Fields. Explore special nurseries and gardens, including the award-winning rose garden with its 50 acres of beauty on a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Shopping and Dining in Carlsbad

- Carlsbad Premium Outlets: If you’re in the mood for some retail therapy, head to Carlsbad Premium Outlets. This shopping center boasts an exciting collection of stores and shops to fit you every want or need. Plan a trip to pick up some souvenirs to remember your vacation.

- Pizza Port: If you want to sample the west coast’s take on pizza, visit Pizza Port. This laid-back eatery opened in 1987 and is known for it’s funky atmosphere with a classic menu. Pizza Port embraces the idea of flavor-driven pizza, and it's also a wonderful spot to relax with a one-of-a-kind brew. In 2008, the owners opened a premium bottle shop with more than 600 craft beers.

- Paon: The menu options here combine California cuisine with a French twist. Dine on the gorgeous patio to take in the natural sights or inside among the Art Deco-inspired interior. The menu here boasts seasonal, locally grown organic ingredients and produce, including prime meats, game and fish. After your delicious dining experience, stop by the wine shop to pick up something to sip on back at home while you recall your favorite memories from your trip to Carlsbad.
