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, surfing, or just relaxing in the sun. We believe one of the greatest joys in life is quality time with family. We set up this home with the hope that our guests will create life long memories and have a wonderful, relaxing stay. Thank you for considering our house for your vacation!

Our family totally enjoyed our stay at this rental. It felt like home to us! The rental had everything we could possible think of to want or need - it lacked for nothing. It was an easy walk to the beach and a quick drive to a grocery store. The play room was a huge hit! The neighborhood felt safe and welcoming. The beds were comfortable and the linens felt so rich. Kim and Jeff were outstanding to rent from. We would definitely plan to stay there again.
Thanks Kim and Jeff for a great stay!
The Way VRBO Should Be Done
Kudos to Jeff and Kim for doing VRBO the right way. Our group of 5 adults had plenty of space to enjoy this phenomenally clean and well kept property. Kim has thought of every detail, provided great documentation on how to make things function and had great communication and follow-thru during the entire process. You're just a short walk to the beach and convenient to everything the north county has to offer. Thanks for the use of you're great property!
Perfect family getaway
The house was beautiful and spacious. The playroom was the star attraction for our kids with games and toys for all ages. You can tell there has been a lot of care and attention taken to ensure all conveniences are available; beach equipment, infant care, a fully appointed kitchen. All of this and an ideal location.
Beautiful home with everything you need!
We enjoyed every minute of our vacation at this beautiful home. Kim & Jeff have literally thought of every detail. When we arrived, Kim had a wonderful array of desserts for us, and essentials like a brand new bag of coffee! She has everything you could imagine for a great trip to the beach ... towels, sand toys, chairs, wagon, etc. While we didn't need to use it, I loved that they also have a full size crib (in addition to a pack n' play if you need 2!) And the playroom! There are legos galore, puzzles, books, crayons & paper to draw, a little house that my daughter just loved, a spare stroller, and more. And, for any visits to a public park for hiking, Kim has a parking pass so you don't have to pay for parking. The list goes on & on. We very often rent through VRBO, and this is hands down the best house we've stayed in (no contest).
Kim and Jeff were also so great & incredibly responsive. If I ever had a question about where something was, I got a response super quick. You can tell they really care about making it a great experience.
Not only is the house amazing, but it's also in the perfect location. A very short walk to the beach. You'll find that there's more sand & area for the kids to play during low tide, so we timed our visits then. Some of our other favorites: Safari Park, Botanical Garden (great area for young kids to play), and of course, Legoland. It's only an hour from Disney too. :)
I would highly, highly recommend staying in this beautiful home!
Perfect family home-away-from-home
We just left and already want to go back! We were two travelling families with two babies and two toddlers - which may sound like work but was so relaxing thanks to all the many kids amenities in the house. Everyone got to relax and enjoy themselves, the location was great and Kim was a wonderful and proactive host. Thank you for such a wonderful family vacation - the first for both groups as a family of four!
Great house for a family; perfect for young kids
My kids absolutely loved the playroom — the most challenging part of our stay was getting them out of the playroom long enough to eat meals. Seamless arrival/departure. Kim was very responsive to emails about logistics. The complimentary coffee and s’mores was a very nice touch. The house is less than a 5 minute drive from Legoland. We would stay there again if/when we are back in the area.
