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.

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.

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.

Our ladies group of 7 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this amazing house. It was exactly as advertised and the owner, Pam was delightful and easy to work with. We encountered no problems as we took advantage of the beautiful spa, deck and particularly the oceanfront patio. Would stay here again next time!

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your amazing home!

Fantastic House!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this beautiful house! There was plenty of room for everyone in our group of four adults and five children. The location was perfect, with the beach across the street, downtown Carlsbad minutes away, and Legoland just down the freeway. We spent many hours on the balcony and rooftop patio overlooking the ocean. When we weren't sitting on the balcony, we were usually at the beach (right across the street, with a crosswalk and stairs to the beach just outside the house). The amenities were great, with everything we could need, including an extra washing machine and dryer in the upstairs master bath. Now that was convenient! Not to mention beach toys and chairs, beach towels, and an outside shower to get that pesty sand off before going inside. The owners were completely reliable and easy to reach. Thank you for an unforgettable week!!

Our best family vacation ever at this wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We are an extended family of 7 adults plus 1 infant, and we had looked at every pixel of the the house photos online for 7 months prior to our arrival. The owners Pam and Al are always available if they are needed, and they were very gracious hosts. My very first impression upon entering was that the photos, as nice as they are, still don't show you how impressive this home really is! We were all wowed upon entering even though we knew what to expect. It's very true to say anything you need for indoor or outdoor life is provided in the house. The beach equipment was perfect - umbrellas, 2 beach buggies to carry it all, and beach chairs galore. The kitchen is an absolute joy to work in, it has more appliances than we could ever use in one week, and the dumb waiter is a huge blessing bringing items to the second floor. We fit our entire family around the kitchen table for every meal instead of the formal dining room because of the gorgeous views. The location is a short walk from town, and the beach access is directly across the street with both a ramp or stairs. This town is very health conscious so we were constantly entertained by happy people moving up and down the street in front of the house doing their daily exercise routines. Feeling good and healthy was catching - we felt years younger when we left than we arrived!
