About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This is a 2+ million dollar home! Directly across the street from the beach, white water views, hear the ocean. Sunsets 365 days a year. The beach access is very easy, and approximately a 2 minute walk. You have the choice of, a few stairs, or a ramp for strollers/carts, and you are on the sand. You can lounge on the roof deck while suntanning, and view the coast, sand and ocean North and South for miles.

Full white water ocean views from all the living areas in the house. Parking for 3 cars, plus automatic gate for security across front of driveway.

With 4 bedrooms and 5/12 bathrooms, there is plenty of room and privacy for extended families, or friends vacationing together in 3800 square feet of living area plus 3 outdoor patio areas. Each bedroom has it's own full bathroom. Pool and spa in the back yard. T.V in every bedroom. Appliances are all Thermador. This is a family type home, and we like to keep the neighbor's happy, so, if you are big late night party people, this home would not be the one for you. If you are having an event ie: Birthday party, anniversary, wedding, the house can not be used as a hospitality home. A resort/timeshare, or hotel would be a better option. This is a single family house, and only the registered guests are to use the pool, spa and house facilities. The maximum is 9, and this includes children.

The beach in front of the house was voted one of the top 10 family beaches in the U.S.

We have a security system and locks which assists with children's pool safety.

About pam corbin

We are both native San Diegans, and moved to Carlsbad when our last son left home in 1995.

We have been married almost 50 years, have 3 sons, 3 wonderful daughter/in/loves, and 7 grandchildren. We love the Carlsbad area, everyday is beautiful and unique on the ocean

pam corbin purchased this house in 2006

Why pam corbin chose Carlsbad

Carlsbad is the best area in San Diego County. It is safe, beautiful, and fun. Close to Lego Land, and to several Southern CA. theme parks. Golf courses, professional sports year round.

What makes this house unique

It's so amazing to watch the waves, surfers, dolphins, walk to the village, where you can shop and eat for hours. Also, enjoying the beach, sunsets, and walking for miles on the sand. There's an outlet mall and regular shopping center 3 miles from the house. Plenty of salons, and spas grace the area.

Oceanfront, beautiful and family friendly describes this property perfectly.

  • 5 of 5

Every year my husband and I along with our two children, their spouses and four grandsons

take a family vacation. This year, my daughter suggested LEGOLAND since the boys, ages 2-6 are all Lego crazy. Rachel found this house on VRBO and we were all so excited! Not only is it a stunning property but it is indeed kid friendly and has a very homey, comfortable feel with every amenity you could want, including a pool! Watching the sunset from the rooftop deck was the highlight of our evenings after an action packed day with the boys. Although, we didn't get to really explore Carlsbad, we all agreed it has a small town feel about it with all the cute shops and restaurants. Pam Corbin was a pleasure to work with, very accommodating. Thank you, Pam!

-Fully equipped for a family vacation

-Convenient from the freeway

-The way to experience San Diego like a local instead of a tourist

-Awesome value.

-Next to a popular restaurant

The Lows:

-The decor is a little dated.

That's all I've got 10 for 10 would book again.

A Beautiful Carlsbad Property!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying here over a two week period and would highly recommend it! It is a great place for all ages including little ones as we had our 3 yr old grandson with us. We have stayed at many Carlsbad rental properties over the years and this is the best if you have a larger group. It is clean with an excellent lay out - spectacular view, great patio, spacious bedrooms and a roomy roof top deck.

You will not be disappointed!

Carlsbad Ocean Front house

  • 3 of 5

We had a wonderful time with 4 of our kids in Carlsbad for the 3 days we were away and the house was part of the experience. The owners, Pam and Al, were absolutely gracious and accommodating. Pam met us when we arrived to go over a few tips and instructions about the house, which was helpful. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen spacious. Overall, a good space, if you don't mind a few things, some of which we didn't care about and some of which were annoying. One, the home is spacious with a bathroom in every bedroom. The decor is dated, but everything was clean and fresh. The house, as you can see from the pictures, sits across a busy main street from the beach. The views are amazing, but you do have to cross (the crossway is super close) this major road. The house was stocked with beach toys, which was a bonus for my 7 and 9 year olds. There's a great, small pool and hot tub which my kids lived in. The issue was that it took about 20 minutes to heat the hot tub, which eventually got so hot you had to turn it off, which gave you about 15 minutes before it got too cold that you had to turn it back on again. Now, we travelled in December so the nights are chilly. The pool, unless it was heated (you can't heat the hot tub and the pool at the same time), was freezing. Again, nothing too major, just an annoyance. Tons of pool toys to play with. Tv's in every room, which came with at least 2 - 3 remotes which were very complicated to use, in fact, we had to call the owner as we would not figure how to turn the main one on! Not sure if that's a standard thing to have 2 remotes per TV these days...lots of other outdated equipment as well, like a DVD player (!!). Overall, it was a spacious house, at a good price, across from the ocean.

Couldn't Have Been More Perfect ...

  • 5 of 5

With a terminal illness in the family, and aging relatives, quality time away is nonexistent for us. Getting away for a few days looking for peace, nice accommodations, and the beauty of the ocean to lighten our minds for a bit meant so very much as it's been years. Our stay was everything we hoped for, and much more.

Three adults, two teenagers, and a toddler occupied this home. Pool floats, boogie boards, beach toys, even toys in the bedroom for my grandson! Just a wonderful stay!

Ultimately, we feel so fortunate to have stayed in this beautiful home, and it is truly as beautiful as the pictures. We are hoping to return early summer. Pam is amazing, easy to reach, and very informative regarding the home.

This listing could easily be priced at triple of what it is, I believe that in itself speaks for the genuineness of the owner. Thank you, Pam, for sharing your home with us.
