About Cyndi Bausch

My husband and I are Southern California natives and enjoy managing this vacation rental home, and remodeling and selling homes nearby. (I'm a licensed real estate broker.) We live locally and are happy to help our guests enjoy Carlsbad and nearby attractions!

Cyndi Bausch purchased this House in 2007

Why Cyndi Bausch chose Carlsbad

We love the beauty and calming effects of the beaches nearby, and the sunny weather is the best anywhere! The backyard pool, spa, BBQ, dining areas and grassy lawn make this the perfect family celebration spot. We grew up in Southern California and love it here!

What makes this House unique

The Mediterrenean style of the property is truly unique and fun! The furnishings were recently remodeled ... and the location is excellent... near the beach, Carlsbad Village, Legoland, shopping, restaurants, golf courses, racetrack, Sea World, parks and so many more attractions. The spacious open rooms allow the family to enjoy time together.... yet provide several relaxing getaway areas.

The property was in good condition when we arrived and it was equipped with anything we we needed plus some. I loved the location , I walked

                                                                  We just spent the last week in Carlsbad and had such a great time. We were a group of five couples/families and there was tons of space for all of us. The kids loved the bunk bed room and the pool (even though it was unseasonably cold!). The adults loved the well stocked house and the hot tub. Great location, easy walk to beach and town, easy access to freeway, coffee shops and grocery stores nearby. The kitchen was the most well stocked of any vacation house we’ve ever rented. We’d happily come back in a second!

                                                                  Very spacious accommodation, clean, great location, and owner was great to work with!

The owner, Cynthia was accessible, trusting, quick to reply and very easy to work with! The place was very clean, had great space with tons of towels and everything we needed for the beach. The pool and hot tub was fun and easy to heat with some time. We loved being so close to the beach at a very reasonable price! I will be back!

                                                                  Wonderful Location, Fantastic Customer Service!!!

                                                                  My husband and I got married in early February and rented this house to be closer to our wedding venue. Cyndi was wonderful to work with from beginning to end! She’s kind, courtesy, efficient, responsive and incredibly helpful. She allowed us to tour the house twice, once before we booked and once after so that we could make our arrangements. We’re so grateful to have found this amazing rental! The house had everything we needed. We will definitely stay here again and will refer our family and friends here!!

                                                                  Awesome get-away in our own back yard!!

                                                                  Our large family needed a place to gather for a special weekend together. This home was a short 30 minute drive from our neck of the woods, but we felt totally removed from all our daily stresses, a total retreat! There was plenty of room for all in this beautifully appointed home and the pool and jacuzzi were wonderful! The beach in Carlsbad was a mere 10 minute walk, so easy to enjoy.

                                                                  Thank you so much for an amazing stay at this memorable property. We'll be back!! :)
