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.

Wonderful family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home was perfect for our family of 13! Bedrooms for everyone and enough supplies to help make it so we didn't have to run to the store for anything but our food. We did have an early morning wake up call from a smoke alarm battery gone bad but once we replace it all was good. The pool was perfect size and we choose to heat it. Well worth the few hours that the kids spent in it! Cyndi was wonderful to work with and I highly recommend choosing this home to stay in if you have families!

A magnificent place

  • 5 of 5

A-1accomodations. We had nine adults and one baby in our party and were very comfortable at all times. Very clean and beautifully appointed and equipped at a perfect location in the heart of town. Easy walking distance to any local site. We could not have been more pleased.

We pulled into the driveway, heard the fountain and knew that we were home for the week!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Cyndi! Your Mediterranean Villa made our week in Carlsbad spectacular and memorable. The home itself is spacious and when you open the front door you feel so at home. Looking out any of the back windows gives you the beautiful Serenity of the pool and spa which my grandchildren would not leave. This home is centrally located minutes from the beach, right around the corner from a Starbucks, Vons grocery and highway 5... Easily getting to any of the Southern cities.. we enjoyed not only Carlsbad Village but La Jolla, San Diego and Delmar were wonderful to wander (and shop) around. The grandkids enjoyed Legoland, SeaWorld, the beach but we really did have to drag them away from the home and pool. Luckily with the highway near it just took minutes to get to any of the attractions or towns.Bedrooms and bathrooms were larger than I thought and beds were so comfortable, for seven adults and four children we never felt on top of each other. My family will definitely be back to the Mediterranean Villa thanks to the home, pool and Cindy with all of her flyers, easy instructions and just plain ease of dealing with her we have not finished our Southern California Adventures!

Coming from Colorado we had never dealt with a private pool so had a few questions... Cindy got right back to us and made it very simple to enjoy.... The kitchen was well stocked and the amount of goodies for the pool and beach we're exceptional... the two bikes were fun for adults and there was a wonderful deep wagon that the kids loved to pull all the toys or get in themselves...

Great place for a group!

  • 5 of 5

This home was great for our group of almost 20. The home has lots of room to spread out in and the hot tub was amazing after a day at the beach. Thank you for a great time!

Impressive and Professional

The house is impressive, and Cyndi, the owner is very professional and extremely helpful. We hosted a rehearsal dinner at the house which went extremely well. We will book again.

Incredible Lodging site for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

This site is awesome for hosting large groups. We had a family reunion of 13 people for a marriage in Carlsbad and it hosted everybody very comfortably and it was conveniently located near a grocery store.

The place was much bigger than the images portrayed and would rent this place again in a heartbeat.
