Overview

About the property

Enjoy your Carlsbad vacation with a view! Our open floor plan, flooded with light, is the perfect place to watch the sun set over the Pacific Ocean. The oversized bedroom and living room flow into a huge back deck, for your outdoor dining and relaxation.

We're 5 minutes from Carlsbad Village, where you'll find a perfect blend of hip and quaint beach town shops and dining. Or we're just 10 minutes from Legoland California and the Carlsbad Outlets; 45 min to Sea World and San Diego!

*NOTE* Smoking and pets are prohibited on the property. There is wifi and late check in available with a key in a lockbox. Lockbox Code and wifi access is supplied upon booking a reservation. Check in time is typically 3pm, and checkout by 10am.

Front of House

The home is at the end of a quiet neighborhood street in Olde Carlsbad. There is ample space for 2 cars double parked on the left side of the driveway (not blocking garage), and enter through the gate on the left. Your Carlsbad Retreat residence is above the garage.

Back Deck Large

The huge private deck offers room to enjoy your time outside. Use the BBQ on the lower deck to grill up your favorite veggies or meats, and then bring them to the upper deck to enjoy beautiful views while you dine.

Kitchen

The spacious kitchen is fully-stocked with plates, glasses, cutlery, cookware, and kitchen appliances. Stroll through the local Carlsbad farmers market (located on State St every Wednesday evening), and pick up a few items to cook up a delicious meal. Or stock up the pantry at any of the several nearby grocery stores.

Living Room

Sink into the comfortable couch and feel the coastal breeze coming through the huge double sliding doors and windows. The calm beach decor puts you in the mindset of an endless summer for your Carlsbad vacation.

Bedroom

Catch up on some extra ZZZ’s in the queen-size bed with a new mattress. A pack-n-play crib is available if you’re bringing a little cherub on your trip. The bedroom has ample closet space, hangars, and a dresser. Two additional people can sleep on an air mattress.

Bathroom

Clean up after a day at the beach in the shower or over-sized bathtub. Choose from an assortment of luxurious rose, lavender, or chamomile-scented bath bubbles, and soak up some personal time in the tub.

Back Deck

Enjoy the stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and Buena Vista Lagoon from the comfort of the private deck. The fire pit is stocked with wood, kindling, and matches to light up a fire and and enjoy the evening under twinkling lights and stars.

Beach Gear

It’s easy to enjoy a day at one of Carlsbad’s many beautiful public beaches with beach chairs, umbrella, and towels provided. Ready to take on the waves? Skip the hassle and lines at a rental shop, and rent a Wavestorm surfboard directly from us for $15/day.

Flower Fields/Legoland/Outlets/Beaches

Carlsbad offers everything you need for a fun couples getaway or longer vacation. We have it all: 7+ miles of sandy beaches, Carlsbad Premium Outlets and boutique shopping in downtown Carlsbad, the flower fields, Legoland California, fine and casual dining, parks and hiking trails, and extremely easy access to the Coaster or I-5 to get to downtown San Diego. As the locals like to say “Life’s Rad in Carlsbad."

Clean, homey, great view!

  • 5 of 5

First off, Kat is great with her communication! The stay itself was perfect for a night away and the fact that she even had toddler utinsels was a bonus. It was nice and clean, homey, and the lights on the patio with the view...It was all great!!

Private and perfect

  • 5 of 5

The place is big and airy. The bathtub was the perfect retreat at the end of every beach filled vacation day and privacy... I felt like we had our own apartment.

Beautiful home with a great view and everything you could ask for

  • 5 of 5

The best part of the experience was the ease of communication. Kat answered all my questions in a very timely manner and made sure we had everything we needed upon arrival. The view from the deck outside the room was outstanding and had a small fire pit with lighting fixtures for night. Right off the freeway making travel easy, and close enough to the beaches and restaurants. Loved my stay and will be looking to book again next time I'm down in the area

Convenient location, helpful host, spacious rooms, but very noisy

  • 4 of 5

The deck has a great view of the ocean and sunset but it is right above the freeway and when we arrived, the noise seemed overpowering. Though it bothered us less as the week went on, we weren't tempted to use the deck though it otherwise would have been perfect.

The apartment hasn't been a VRBO for long so its furnishings are still evolving. We would have liked a coffee table in front of the couch and a night table in the bedroom. Also, there was no cable, which was fine with us, but the TV wasn't set up to receive local stations or PBS and we were unable to use Netflix on it.

Were it not for the noise, we would book this place again without hesitation. Even with the noise, it was a good deal.

wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

The place was spotless and very comfortable. Well located to get to Oceanside or Carlsbad very easily. Beautiful view and porch to wind down a day. Quiet! We were thrilled with our stay. Suite is very large and there are small amenities that were above and beyond. Fast wifi. Soft towels. Stuff to take to the beach. Great young couple hosting. would be back in a heart beat!

Great location, super friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay here. Kat and Derek are very friendly people and did everything possible to make sure we had a nice stay. The location is perfect, on a nice quiet street super close to downtown carlsbad and a short drive to legoland, which we visited 3 times while there. The unit is very spacious and clean. I would love to stay here again.
