What makes this house unique

Breathtaking views and unusually quiet coastal beach living with all the ammenities. shops, stores, Lagoon, Birds nature, we have rabbits in the yard, and canyons, you might think from our back yard we are in the country, but you can walk to four seasons hyatt resort in 12 minutes. Love the energy of the hilltop and south facing sun warms the home and always an ocean breeze. Can have classes, retreats, and vacationers here, large spacious healing home and 1/2 acre, largest lot in Aviara Carlsbad.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This home definitely have ambience. When you first walk in there is the grand feeling. It has vaulted ceiling lots of light in the window and color. The owner is an artist so there is no shortage of colorful art throughout the whole home. The views are stunning off the back patio. It has a very large yard and it's private on a canyon so you feel very spacious and peaceful. The neighborhood is an upgraded area near the four seasons resort. You can see the mountains in the day with clouds and many stars and the lights at night. We had a great time relaxing here it was so quiet he would think you were out the country. It's on a cul-de-sac which makes it safe for kids. There is a walking trail right behind the house that we took for exercise as a family. We could get to stores and restaurants for the beach in just 5 to 10 minutes. What a great location for everything you need . The home was well cared for and very clean. We look forward to coming back with other family members in the future. The owners were very gracious and easy to work with. The home had a very festive decorative energy whether you're here for the holiday or not. Thank you Liza and Mike .

Beautiful home, great location, gracious hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful retreat -- what a fantastic place for personal downtime and to recharge! Gorgeous home, very quiet and well kept, and the hosts are wonderful. On a beautiful piece of property on a quiet street in one of the most coveted areas in North County San Diego. Oh so quiet here, yet close to beaches and all North County San Diego attractions. Highly recommend!

Beautiful s cal home

  • 4 of 5

We found this home to fit all of our needs. We were a group of 7, the house was very spacious and functional for us. Its in a great neighborhood very close to the beach. We loved being able to grill outside in the big, beautiful backyard. This house is perfect for a big group. There are lots of walking trails around which are perfect for getting exercise or taking your dog. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants a quiet getaway to relax and enjoy southern california.

I want to extend a big thanks to let you know how wonderful it was to work with you in planning our vacation at the above location;, even though I did not meet you personally but just talked on the phone and corresponded on the internet with you.

My family spent a week at your lovely home and we all enjoyed it tremendously. This was by far the best week we ever had all together. The pictures of the house were exactly as stated in the description with all the necessary items there. The location was great and close to all that we love. The house was elegantly furnished and had an “avant garde” look. The views from the MB bedroom upstairs were spectacular. The finale came on July 4th after gorging down all the prepared delicious food, we had a view of the fireworks from the La Costa Resort.

Family vacation - the perfect house for us!

  • 5 of 5

I found this home after researching many VRBO properties and it was fabulous for our family of 10 adults & 4 pre-school children! We stayed for 8 days over Canadian Thanksgiving in 2013 and all of our family members couldn't have been happier with this beautiful home, they each thanked me for choosing it. The house is very spacious and tastefully decorated, the backyard is huge & nicely landscaped with almost complete privacy - the property is on a hill overlooking Carlsbad without any houses behind, so it was great for barbecues out on the patio with lots of space for the kids to play while the adults relaxed, its located in a very quiet & peaceful lovely neighborhood. Our dog enjoyed running in the yard and on the trails in the area. The interior of the house is much nicer than we imagined, we found it to be clean and well maintained with every amenity readily available. The design & lay-out is excellent, it has comfortable sitting areas both inside & out with more than adequate bed and bathrooms for all 14 of us including a large open kitchen where we enjoyed cooking together. This home truly is a gem! Carlsbad is a fabulous city with lots of shopping & restaurants; perfectly situated to vacation in the area - we could easily drive to & from San Diego as well as up to the LA area - Legoland, Sea World, Disneyland and great Beaches were all easy to get to. The owner and her assistants were very accessible & communicated clearly, they responded to all of my emails and multiple questions promptly before, during & after our stay and thoroughly explained everything to me. I highly recommend Liza to you. She was also gracious, flexible and generous in terms of our arrival and departure dates. You will not find a better home for such a reasonable price! Thank you, we highly recommend this property and would definitely stay here again.

Hawaii Feel in Elegant Palace is Carlsbad San Diego

  • 5 of 5

What more could we want to feel at home? We came to go to legoland and sea world and discovered carlsbad. The house felt so warm and had tons of character, art and beauty with the biggest back yard we have ever had on renting vacation homes. It felt like we were in hawaii between great weather and so many palm trees and plants. Private yet so close to everything. Felt like an estate but was in a high end neighborhood called Aviara. We read up on Aviara and its a master planned newer community upper scale with 40% green belt and so much beauty. The owners were gracious. We had all we needed at our fingertips. The pantry was so fully stocked we had all the spices and staples so shopping was easy.

The views were better than the photos. Everthing was very clean and easy to access. We read a previous post and don't understand why anyone would not be happy with this rental even if there were

no trash bags, which there are and two water filters, which a lot of homes don't have one and we don't expect them. WE buy bottled water but the filters are great for cooking for us. We met the maids on our way in and we were impressed that they could clean such a large home so well. The master made us feel total resort style above Four Seasons golf couse on a canyon, WE walked to the park and took the trails with our dogs. WE spent a lot of time in the kitchen. We go yearly to san diego and we highly recommend the convienienc of this home from booking to staying here to our departure. Cant say there was a thing wrong with this home unless you want to be nit picky and complain, but why. We read the previous post and have paid more for homes like this. Its a great deal all around. M and J. OC.
