About the property

Welcome to Casa Laguna Azul in Olde Carlsbad, California!

• Super close proximity to shopping, the beach, the lagoon and watersports, Legoland, and much more!

• The private romantically-lit backyard serves as a blissful retreat at the end of a long day.

• The home was completely renovated only a few years ago. We're NEW to VRBO, which means most everything inside the house is new as well and was carefully chosen to cater to our guests.

• Close to many walking trails around the lagoon and to the beach.

• Lots of room for families and kids. Plenty of space to spread out and relax!

The home has 4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, plus a game room for the kids. There is room space for 9 people.

Wifi and DirecTV are included in the home. The home also has air conditioning (rare for Carlsbad!) and heating.

Almost every room in the house has a ceiling fan.


• 3/4 mile to beautiful Tamarack State beach

• 1/4 mile to Agua Hediona Lagoon, where you can partake in water sports like jet skiing, water skiing and wakeboarding. Or you can venture to the other side and peacefully paddle board and kayak.

• Only 3 miles from Legoland

• Convenient and close proximity to Carlsbad Village, Carlsbad Premium Outlets and the Carlsbad Flower Fields

• Golfing, dining and shopping are also close by

• The Oceanside pier and harbor and only a 10-minute drive north, and the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, San Diego Airport and more are only 30 minutes south

• Within immediate walking distance are a grocery store, drugstore, a new Leucadia Pizzeria, and the Village Pie Shop. We also have a brand new Starbucks about a block away from our home.

The living room has beautiful bay windows, a large 65" Smart HD TV, blue ray DVD player and gas fireplace.

Dining Room/Kitchen:

There is a huge table with room enough for 8-10 people, and a sliding glass door to let in the cool ocean breezes. The kitchen is oversized with plenty of what you need to cook for everyone at home.


There is a large patio table with room for 8 people cooled by an overhead fan. The jacuzzi has enough room for 6 adults, with color changing LED lights, waterfall feature and plenty of jets. The outdoor fire pit is the perfect place to unwind with a glass of wine at night, or make s'mores (with or without the kids!). There is also a new BBQ for outdoor grilling. The backyard retreat lights up at night with commercial style string lighting.

Front Yard:

There is a solar-powered outdoor shower for a warm rinse after a long day at the beach.


The master suite is downstairs, and includes a King size bed and attached bathroom with private shower. There is a 32" HD TV and beautiful French doors with private access to the patio.

Beautiful retreat in Carlsbad, California

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home in Carlsbad for a vacation with our two adult children, their spouses, and our grandsons who are 5 and 9. We are from Arizona and they are from Ohio. The home is very spacious and well equipped--it suited all our needs. Even beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach towels, and sand toys were provided. Lots of games and books for the kids to enjoy also. We loved the back yard and spent most of our evenings out there enjoying dinner, conversation, and the hot tub. Location was ideal--close to beach, Legoland, Carlsbad Lagoon, shopping, and grocery store. Heather was very accommodating and responded quickly to all our questions--She even found us some coupons for Legoland. We created a lot of memories in Carlsbad and, once again, our Home Away experience did not disappoint but far exceeded our expectations. Sue and Bob Martinosky

We had an amazing time during our stay. The home had plenty of space as well as a big back yard for family entertainment. The spa was wonderful and the fire pit was great for s’mores with the kids.

Great Family Rental

  • 4 of 5

Our family of six stayed here for a week and were very comfortable. Our four kids all stayed in the 3 bedrooms upstairs, which worked out very well for us. Our daughter appreciated having her own bathroom attached to her bedroom. We all enjoyed the hot tub in the yard, which was easy to use and convenient to the downstairs bedroom. We used the PS3, board games, kids books, and beach supplies, which were all in very good shape. The location is great for visits to Carlsbad and anywhere in the San Diego area. Heather was very helpful and responsive. Thank you for a great stay!

Perfect for Kids, Amazing Yard and Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa Azul was very wonderful! We had 3 small infants and 4 year old with us and the house was perfectly suited. Additionally, the adults could all enjoy the common spaces in the backyard, dining area and living area. Well stocked and plenty of storage space, so things weren't just lying about and lots of beach gear. The town of Carlsbad was adorable and the close proximity to Legoland was plus. We were also able to enjoy the flower festival in Carlsbad which was absolutely georgeous and great for the whole family. The lagoon is short walk and the stores across the street made life so easy and enjoyable for us. Heather was VERY responsive and accommodating. Highly recommend this rental!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Took a little drive to get to the beach, but well worth it and perfect for my family. Stocked with beach toys, wagon, all the kitchen atuff you could need. Only thing I didnt like for my two tiny ones was that the stairs were made of marble and that gave me a bit of anxiety cause I have two under two. Everything else was perfection. Also, super sound proof house. The other couple with us couldnt hear my baby crying and I barely could too! You can hear the train noise slightly, but it’s pretty quiet so long as the windows are closed. Right across the street from a Vons and a Rite Aid, which came in super handy! Would rent again!

Owner's Response: Hi Erika, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! And really appreciate your review. I hope you do make it back to stay in Carlsbad again. For next time, we do have a baby gate at the house to protect little ones from any accidents with the stairs. It operates by tension, so you can place it anywhere you see fit in the house. Thanks for being wonderful guests and taking great care of our home! We appreciate it more than you know :) Heather & Jason
