Dolphin Cottage in Carlsbad Village
average rating of 4.8 based on 10 reviews

Very clean, cozy and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

My girls and I had a wonderful stay at the dolphin cottage! It was everything we could have hoped for and more! The beach towels, chairs and umbrella was great! We didn’t have to worry about finding a place to rent them. We would have loved to take the bikes out, but there were only 2 bikes and 3 of us. Thank you to the McGee’s for renting us their beautiful cottage and allowing us to use their beach accessories! I highly recommend this place!

Great little Gem

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was just as described. Clean, complete kitchen, comfy bed and perfect location. Loved the using the two bikes. One was a beach cruiser, no gears and the other like mountain bike. Headed uo to Oceanside and around town. The beach chairs were new and held a lot of our stuff. The beach unbrella was a plus too. Three of us stayed here comfortably, using a single futon in the living room area. The place has air conditioning which was needed as it was hot and no cross ventilation breeze. Would definitely stay here again. Location was great. 10 min walk to town and 20 minute flat walk to the beach.

Fantastic vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation with everything we needed for our stay. Easy to reach the owners with any questions, extremely accommodating. Can't wait to make reservations for our next vacation! The cottage location is perfect for parking the car and taking off on foot or bike the whole time.

Cute, pristine and quiet

  • 5 of 5

I throughly enjoyed my stay here recently while attending classes at The Spanish Institute in Carlsbad. The cottage is a stroll from restaurants and the beach on a very quiet lane. I spent a lot of time in the cottage doing homework and can vouch for its comfort.

Updated but quaint and cute

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time...the only thing that was bothersome was the motion light outside that went on every ten minutes or so-it made it difficult to sleep-otherwise-amenities were prefect-loved the bathroom and the place is close to everything!
