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 San Diego County

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.

Amazing Home!!

  • 5 of 5

You could not of asked for anything better in a vacation home. The home was beautiful, clean, had every amenity you could possibly need. Al and Pam were always available for questions and very attentive to my families needs. Plenty of space, comfortable beds and a bathroom for everyone!! Would stay at this home over and over. 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!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

A amazing house: location, location, location plus every amenity you could possible ask for. We had our entire family with us, including 3 grandchildren, ages 4 ,1 1/2 and 8 months. Plenty of room for everyone. Beach access right across the street, tremendous view of ocean from decks on 2nd floor and rooftop. Less than 1/2 mile walk to town for nice walk in morning for coffee. or dinners in evening. Al and Pam were always available for any assistance needed. We hope to return next year.

Luxury home away from regular home!

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all! We took our family of 5 ( 3 kids - 1 yo, 5yo, 7yo) - as well as both sets of grandparents for a week and we would go back in a heartbeat. The house has enough space and amenities that you really don't even need to go to the beach to have a great time. The pool is bigger than it looks in the pictures and has waterfalls that were my kids favorite feature. We all loved the hot tub at the end of a beach day, and the beach was beautiful as well! One recommendation: if you have small kids, take them south, over the bridge (2min walk on sidewalk) to the beach where the entry into the ocean is very gradual and the waves roll in. Straight out from the house it's more suited for surf boarding. The house is designed so everyone can have their own space without feeling like you're tip-toeing around in the am or keeping everyone up at night. It's very quiet because of the tile floors, and clean/easy to clean! Toys, baby gate, stroller, everything you could imagine for the beach, coolers, 2xwasher/dryer, towels, coffee maker, blenders, everything you could need is in the house. The house is directly across from the beach which has a very popular paved trail along it - bring scooters or running shoes if you're interested. Very active and healthy community. We loved it... I could go on, but who's really still reading this ?! :)

Another Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this home because we enjoyed it so much the first time. It is a great layout for staying with another family with each family having their own floor with two rooms. The location and views from the deck and balcony are incredible. Owners are great to work with and prompt in responding to questions.
