(does not include Christmas/New Years)

Come stay at our recently remodeled Beach House right on the famous and centrally located Pacific Coast Highway 101. Discover the only private beach in Carlsbad right across the street from your front door. Short and easy walk to beach.

After spending time in the surf and sand, come inside and enjoy the partial ocean views from the living room! Free wi-fi and satellite TVs are available in each bedroom. Hungry? Cook something up in our fully outfitted Granite Kitchen or hop in your car and take a short drive into Carlsbad Village and enjoy one of the amazing restaurants nearby. (We will leave you a list of our personal favorites!) Afterwards, if you're feeling adventurous explore the local nightspots where you can enjoy a margarita by the fire pits, or maybe you'll opt for a romantic stroll along the beach under the stars instead.

When you return home relax in the jacuzzi bathtub or light a fire in the fireplace. Sink into the softest sofa known to man and watch a movie with your loved ones. When you just can't keep your eyes open any longer sprawl out on one of our Queen sized 'Heavenly' Westin Beds and fall asleep to the sound of Ocean waves.

If you've got little ones, bring them! Our large enclosed backyard is lush and perfect for kids who like to play. Not only that but Lego land, Lego land Water Park, and the Sea life Aquarium are less than 2 miles away and very easy to find! If you're up for a little bit of a drive you can take them to the San Diego Zoo, the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, Knott's Berry Farm, Sea world, or Disneyland all less than an hours drive away.

There is so much to do in Carlsbad including lots of activities for those seeking a quiet getaway without children too. Make sure you check out our favorite things to do in Carlsbad in the 'Activities' section. We also live in Carlsbad and know the area very well and would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have by email, text, or phone if you choose to stay with us!

Activities/ Our Favorite Things To Do Nearby

The Beach!!! Carlsbad State Beach was rated one of the top 10 beaches in the US by Traveler Magazine and is located only a 5 minute drive away. Right across the street from our house is the only private beach in Carlsbad, Terramar Beach. So much to do at the beach: Dig your toes in the sand, get a tan, go for a swim, surf, boogie board, play volleyball, explore the tide pools teeming with life, make sandcastles with the kids, join the joggers and bikers along the seawall, enjoy a bonfire with friends and family, or just sit on a bench and people watch! Just remember to bring your sunscreen!

Visit the luxurious Day Spa at La Costa Resort - We love to spend time at the Day Spa. Men and women have their own facilities each with their own indoor Sauna, Steam room, and Jacuzzi. Outside you can meet up with your spouse by the pool, roman waterfalls, and outdoor jacuzzi. We love to wrap up our spa days with a good massage and then eat at one of the chic restaurants in the resort. The resort is gorgeous and perfect for a romantic date or a girl's day. Google it.

Shopping: The beach house is about 5 minutes away from a huge outdoor shopping mall called the Carlsbad Premium Outlets. This mall has both affordable and high end stores like: Coach, Dooney and Burke, Juicy Couture, Lacoste, Barneys New York, Ralph Lauren, BCBG Max Azria, Banana Republic, DKNY, Gap, BabyGap, Carters, and Crate and Barrel.

My favorite place to shop, however, is 'The Forum' about 10 minutes South off Leucadia BLVD. They have a Z Gallerie, Sur La Table, Bed Bath and Beyond, Anthropology, H&M, Urban Outfitters, Black House White Market, Mac Cosmetics, Ulta, and an Apple Store. Also nearby is a Target and plenty of amazing restaurants! Costco is 5 minutes away.

World Class Golfing at: Aviara's Four Seasons (Carlsbad), La Costa Resort (Carlsbad), The Crossings at Carlsbad, Encinitas Ranch (Encinitas), and world famous Torrey Pines (La Jolla).

Dining Out: We love dining out so we will leave you with a list of our favorite restaurants and where to find them. However if you're just looking for something convenient, restaurants under 5 minutes away include: Islands, King's Fish House, BJ's Brewery, Karl Strauss, Claim Jumper, TGIF's, PF Changs, and Bellefleur (amazing Sunday Brunch!!). There are also several fast places nearby like Starbucks, Rubio's, and California's Exclusive In-n-Out Burger (if you haven't tried an In-n-Out Burger then you really haven't lived).

For Kids: Legoland, Legoland Water Park, Sealife Aquarium, Playwerx (an indoor jungle gym in Carlsbad), San Diego Botanic Garden in neighboring Encinitas (cheap admission but tons for little kids/toddlers to do), La Costa Resort Waterpark, and also a variety of beautiful public playgrounds including some on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I want to pass on a thank you from my husband. We are used to nice homes

and my husband says your home is nice, classy and clean. We really

appreciate that it is clean. That seems always to be an issue when we

rent so thank you. They also said the internet was great. Thank you for

that too, my son needs the internet for his schoolwork.

It was very comfortable, having three couples, we had room to spread out. We loved Carlsbad too! The beach was great. We spent a lot of time in SAN Diego, which was great but also enjoyed local restaurant. We appreciated the tips on local eateries.

Great location, beautiful home and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

I'm very picky about cleanliness so I was hesitant to rent a home for our vacation, but right when we walked in I could smell how clean the home was. It's beautiful. We had no issues and had had everything we needed plus more. Amazing location right across the street from beach. If you have a chance visit cafe toppes for breakfast! Great food! Thank you so much Tamara for everything and we can't wait to return and stay at your home again!!

Carlsbad Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the Beach house. The property and furnishings were very comfortable. We loved the backyard. We used the grill, the laundry and everything worked fine. The beds were comfortable - usually when I go on vacation I am so glad to get home to my own bed but the beds were so comfortable that I didn't have any issues. We all slept well.

We had a little problem with the plug on the main bathtub. We could get it to close, but opening it to drain was difficult. Sometimes it worked right away and other times it took a good amount of time to get it open.

Another item you should look at - when we came in the house the first day and then when we came home the next two days after being gone all day, there was some light brown "crumbs" on the floor next to the chair that is close to the door. When we looked at it, it looked more like sawdust. There might be an issue with some kind of bug in the wood in the ceiling directly above that spot. You may want to have the owners look into this.

We had a great time and would definitely consider staying here again if we visit again and we will recommend this place to our friends.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at the beach house. We wanted to let you know that we called out a professional shortly after we received your review to inspect the house and they could find no termites or anything of the sort. The termite inspector said that it was most likely dust from the wooden beam ceiling but no termites. We have also replaced the tub plug as well. Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review! - Tamar

Extremely Satisfied!

  • 5 of 5

Our experince was exceptional. The house was so inviting, very clean, comfortable and the landscaping was just beautiful and well maintained...... Very accomidating in kitchenware. We were in Carlsbad for a family wedding at the Flower Fields which was less than two minutes away. Our extended family from Japan and neighboring states, we were able visit us the day after the wedding for simple lunch at the house. Abundent seating on the patio along with the dining area accomidated us all nicely for an afternoon visit, While the older children visited the beach. The Public beach access was just up or down the street. I was able to walk the beach in comfort and always felt safe. It amazed me to see so many people using the bike and walking path in front of the house. I am Nascar fan, so sitting on the front porch was heaven. Looking across to the ocean view, beautiful landscape and busy street ....I was perfectly happy. I highly recommend this house if you are visiting the Carlsbad area. (ps, my only suggestion if possible and not too much to maintain would be a wireless printer, in order to print boarding passes for those flying out, We were able to locate the nearest Fed Ex store to print them rather than spending $10 at airport.)

Thank You for a very enjoyable house for our visit. VRBO is my new best friend. :)

Fabulous Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many VRBO rentals over the years and this property is at the top of our list. Clean and everything we needed for our family........Beach toys a huge asset to our granddaughters....who are 9 and 4....Lovely safe and fenced backyard. We took Tamara's advise on Restaurants....we were not disappointed! The beds were great especially the pillows! This was important for "Nana" who has had back surgery! The house is centrally located for all our outings....Legoland and San Diego Zoo. We took advantage of the Coaster it beats dealing with heavy traffic and the price is right. Kudo's to Tamara for making our holiday a great experience! We will be back!

Love the house, and the location

  • 5 of 5

We returned to this house again in April, and as before, liked it very much. The location is wonderful too - a very short walk to a secluded, almost private beach. The house is very comfortable, well stocked, with a very nice yard that is good for the kids. We will come back. Thank you Tamar for letting us use your wonderful house
