Your home-away-from home at the beach is fully equipped, and features lovely views of the ocean, with plenty of outdoor space for the children to play and the adults to relax. You will enjoy wonderfully comfortable beds, a well-stocked kitchen, plenty of off-street parking, wireless broadband, private laundry facilities, a grassy yard with patio furnished for outdoor dining and lounging, a propane grill, a fire-ring with granite surround for enjoying an evening beverage, and an outdoor shower with hot water for your pleasure upon returning from the beach. Beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, boogey boards, beach toys and coolers are provided, along with all your linens and basic kitchen supplies.
And it's sparkling clean!
At the beach you will find lifeguards, restrooms and showers. There are designated areas for surfing and swimming.
Pelicans, egrets, seagulls, and great blue herons will point the way as you follow the short and easy scenic trail from the property to the beach (about a block-and-a-half).
In the evening, enjoy the view of the magnificent sunset over the Pacific and the graceful flight of many sea birds, while you cook dinner on the grill. If you've brought children, there's plenty of room for them to play, and you can relax knowing they are safe in the yard.
Stroll, bike, or rollerblade a few blocks up the coast to the "village" for lunch. Explore the small shops, boutiques, antique stores and cafes. There are many excellent restaurants, and If you in the mood for romantic evening out, one of Carlsbad's best ocean view restaurants is just three blocks from your home.
Carlsbad Premium Outlets mall - a five minute drive away - is a shopper's paradise. But remember to save some energy for tomorrow . . .
Will it be surf lessons, sunbathing, or golf, the Zoo, the Wild Animal Park, Sea World, Legoland, Old Town, Balboa Park, jet skiing, deep sea fishing, The Lagoon Discovery Center, Disneyland, or . . . Just RELAXING at the BEST SPOT IN CARLSBAD!

This is a great beach for small children. Although this beach is not as deep as Tamarack Beach, it is sandy and there are usually not many waves here (though there may be, so always exercise caution.) Often there are fewer people at this beach. There are porta-potties and life guards. Parking is along the street....MoreCollapse

About the owner: Starting with my early childhood summer vacations at the seashore in New Jersey, I have always loved the beach and ocean. After growing up on the San Francisco peninsula, surrounded by the Bay and the ocean, I moved to Hawaii ... and that was it! I became a true ocean addict. I have enjoyed the magnificence of an ocean view virtually my entire adult life, and consider it an essential. Getting tossed by the waves and walking on the beach are two of my favorite passtimes. It delights me to share the experience of these things with my guests, and to see their smiling faces as they relax and enjoy the stunning meeting of earth, sea, and sky!
Why the Owner Chose Carlsbad, CA, USA:
When I discovered the property, I said the same thing I have heard thousands of times from neighbors and visitors...'This is the Best Spot in Carlsbad!' This little neighborhood has it all: The gorgeous views of the ocean and the lagoon, wonderful ocean breezes, a trail from the property to the beach, proximity to the restaurants of the Village and the Coaster train, great nearby shopping, easy freeway access -- but it's just far enough away from all these to avoid the noise and traffic! And, being at the North end of San Diego County, it's a great location for day trips to Disneyland or LA as well as all the San Diego attractions.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is something very special about this property and its classic beach house -- a feeling of peaceful enjoyment, serenity, and the beauty of nature. Yet, it's just a stones throw to all the action! Carlsbad's best beach, Tamarack, is right out front. It is a sandy beach with lifeguards (summer only), restrooms, and showers. The Village is one mile away, with many restaurants, cafes, icecream, gift shops, and boutiques. A shopper's delight awaits at the Carlsbad Company Stores mall, a 5 minute drive. The lagoon (just to the south and east of the property) offers fishing, exploring, jet skiing, and sailing. Many guests love to simply relax in the ocean breezes, enjoying the sunshine and views from the yard and patios, dining outside, and letting the kids play safely in the yard.
