About Jeff or Kim Todd

We live in Carlsbad with our four children approximately one mile away. During the summer months our family spends almost every weekend at the beach. There's something for everyone - playing in the sand, jumping in the waves, boogie boarding and surfing, or just relaxing in the sun. We believe one of the greatest joys in life is quality time with family. Family vacations are special. We set up this home with the hope that our guests will create life long memories and have a wonderful, relaxing vacation with family and friends. Thank you for considering our house for your vacation!

Jeff or Kim Todd purchased this house in 2010

What makes this house unique

You really can't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

It feels like you came right home. This place is gorgeous, the owners are very accommodating, the playroom is a kid's heaven, and the place is well-equipt with anything you'd need (beach towels, sand toys, boogie boards, coolers, plenty of dishes, cooking utinsils, etc). We loved the fire pit and grill. The walk to the beach is short and easy. This place is VERY family friendly and has everything from a high chair, crib, baby gate, even a potty seat! The house was super clean and we were happy to have nice soaps and even bath salts provided. The beds and linens were very nice. We have NO complaints and will for sure recommend this home to all our friends and will be back!

Great, kid-friendly weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, immaculate home, perfect for a getaway with kids. Our toddler daughter loved the playroom and the crib. The place is well-stocked with items necessary for travel with toddlers. We were fortunate that this home was available during our travel dates, and would gladly stay here again next time we are in the area. The one minor negative was that there were times when we could hear sounds from the train whose tracks are visible from within the neighborhood. Fortunately, it did not disturb our sleep, perhaps because of the hours we kept and the train schedule. We assume, though, that given the proximity of the train to the beach, most lodging options close to the beach here are likely to have similar issues.

Beautiful house, great for kids

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 nights at the house. The garage has been converted to an awesome toy room and the beach is less than a 10 min walk away. The house has everything you could need (including a crib, baby gate and high chair) and is nice and roomy. We had 2 families (4 adults and 4 kids) and it worked out perfectly. Kim and Jeff are super responsive. I would definitely recommend to anyone, but especially families with small kids.

Nice stay for family with children

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here three nights in May, together with another family. We have four young kids in total who very much enjoyed the garage converted into a playroom, the proximity to Legoland and the beach, and the back patio with barbecue and fire pit. The house is clean, comfortable, well-furnished, and well-stocked with amenities, and the owners are very responsive. Highly recommended!

Great house for families

  • 5 of 5

This location is set up great for families. The play room has all the toys, books, and room for kids to get out energy and play. The location close to beaches is great for walking to the beach, but different beaches are also a short drive away.

Beyond pleased.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great vacation home. For us, the playroom was just the ticket for the small grandkids. The home is beautifully appointed, clean and very close to the beach. The street was very quiet and the neighborhood felt very safe. Parking was no problem. Everything we needed and more was provided. The outside shower and fire-pit were special hits with the family. Kim was more than accommodating and even returned a fairly large item that was left without expecting us to pay the postage . We would definitely reserve their home again. You won't be disappointed.
