Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This is a great beach house. It is one block from the beach and it is a two minute walk from the village. The house has everything you need for a great beach vacation. This is the second time we have rented this house this summer and we will be back. The house is huge for a vacation rental. The patio is incredibly relaxing.

Great Location in Carlsbad!

  • 4 of 5

We have rented this same house for several years. We love the location and size of the house. This year was extremely warm weather and there is no AC which was a little uncomfortable. Also, every year that we rent it we hope that the owners have purchased bigger/more comfortable beds (no king size beds). Overall....we LOVE this place!!!

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family spent a week at this beach house, which was perfect location for us. It was large enough that we all had our own space and close enough to the beach that we could come back and forth several times a day. The restaurants and shops of the Village are just a couple of minutes away. In addition, the house came equipped with everything that we needed. We are coming back in September and we cannot wait to do so.

Carlsbad Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a great "funky" cottage. Our family loved the place. Great location to get to the beach and to downtown Carlsbad. This was our first VRBO experience and it has set expectations pretty high. If you're looking for luxury this isn't your place, if you're looking for a place that has unique qualities and is extremely comfortable then this is it. When we walked out the dood, we all agreed we would try and get back to Carlsbad and this place.

Charming house and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving at Casa Magnifica with friends. Four adults, 3 kids and 2 dogs had plenty of room inside and out. The house was pretty well equipped for cooking a thanksgiving meal although we had to supplement a few things. You can walk to the beach and downtown Carlsbad easily and the beach near the house was a perfect spot we almost had to ourselves. The local businesses in Carlsbad were super friendly and helpful. We rented a full cadre of water sports items and the kids had a blast. Jim was helpful and responsive to requests.

Great location and lots of space!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to Carlsbad very much with our family. We spent time at the beach (so close! and the chairs/umbrella provided in the house was perfect, we even found a kite to fly with the kids), we visited the village area and had great sushi and ice cream made right in front of you at Sub Zero (we walked of course!) and we visited Legoland (obviously not as great as disneyland but the kids had fun). If you don't normally wear shoes indoors, I'd recommend bringing house slippers. I'd like to suggest that the owners add some niceties like matching towels, more towel hangers in the bathrooms, newer pillows with easy to find pillowcases and maybe a fan in every room. Overall, the place is great for a family getaway. Our kids still talk about the beach house and how much fun they had. We would definitely return and recommend to our friends/family.
