About Deanna Austin

California natives: we love our beautiful beaches, great climate and active lifestyle! We were high school sweethearts and have been married 34 years. We have amazing adult kids on both Coasts.

Fans of our Australian Shepherds, hiking, golfing, fishing, writing and painting. We appreciate great food and art! And most of all our family and friends.

In peace and joy, Craig and Deanna

Deanna Austin purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Deanna Austin chose Carlsbad Village

It's a dream to stay at The Hideaway in Carlsbad Village!

A tranquil getaway with all the amenities of home. Walk to the lagoon and beach. Shop in The Village. Explore San Diego. Jump on the train to San Juan Capistrano (north) or Downtown (south). Everything a great vacation can offer is here!

Casual, comfortable and quality.

What makes this cottage unique

A top feature is that we also own an all-natural bakery in Leucadia on Coast Hwy 101. We can make arrangements to deliver a custom cake, pastries or a delicious basket of scones or Nordstrom’s favorite all-natural cookies. (Yes, we make cookies for Nordstrom too!)

See link below to order fresh pastries.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rating: 5/5

We really enjoyed returning to this lovely little cottage. It has everything you need to stay for a few days or a few weeks. We love the private patio and all it has to offer. The new Owners Deanna and Craig are so warm and welcoming. They are very responsive to any questions or concerns you may have before and during your stay here. This cottage is within walking distance to Carlsbad Village which offers lots of shopping and restaurants. We discovered a great little deli within walking distance called Pronto's. You can eat in or take out. So many choices with a great variety of options.

We look forward to returning in the future.

Thank you again to Deanna and Craig for making our stay so nice.

Great cozy spot walking distance to everything

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect spot for two people to vacation. Cozy seating inside and out, great kitchen, and a cozy bedroom. Walk to many cafes, breakfast spots, restaurants, the train, and the beach. Also close to major roads to take you everywhere else. Loved it!

Gem in Carlsbad

  • 5 of 5

The Hideaway is a perfect place to stay while in Carlsbad. Everything I needed was available and the owner is very thoughtful. I loved how it was decorated and comfortable. The backyard is beautiful and serene. I highly recommend this place. It is very close to the village and highway and shops and restaurants.

Charming guest house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our little " casita" while in

beautiful Carlsbad! Deanna has thought of everything & we felt so

taken care of... the fantastic cookies from her daughters bakery set the

tone! The garden was so pretty & we

enjoyed the sunny outdoor patio too.

We were within walking distance to

town & the was a delightful

"home away from home" for us & we will return!
