About Denise Laven

Both my husband and I are retired and love to travel as well as love the sun, tennis and the beach. We bought our dream condo by the beach in 2012. I had always wanted to live by the beach and now we do!! All 3 of our kids--who live in 3 different states and our 2 grandsons love to visit us here in Carlsbad. We received an unexpected bonus, as tennis players and fans, we were able to volunteer for the Mercury Open Women's Tennis Tournament! There is so much to do and it is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the salt air!

Denise Laven purchased this condo in 2012

Why Denise Laven chose Carlsbad

We sold our large home in Stockton (my hometown-as a 5th generation Stocktonian) in 2011 and looked until we found this place. When we began looking in Carlsbad this was my dream condo complex because of its proximity to so many things--especially the beach. After nearly 9 months we found this unit and absolutely love it!

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location is the by line in real estate. Well it certainly applies here! The view is amazing--the lagoon and the ocean, the strawberry fields across the way with the hills in the background. The ability to walk almost anywhere in Carlsbad Village is wonderful, you can find anything you need nearby. The Charm of the Village is a real treat. If you prefer malls--there are several close by and an outlet mall too! Taking a drive from Carlsbad south on Highway 101 or Pacific Coast Highway is a breathtaking experience; or just walking along the beach at sunset enjoying the beautiful tranquility, there is no place like Carlsbad and Ocean Pointe!

Very nice home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved it there. The furnishings were nice and very comfortable. It's close to the beach (not a walk, but we're not young any more) and has a nice view of the lagoon where we could watch the kayakers and seadoos. It was convenient to downtown Carlsbad and to the I5. The chaise on the patio was a nice touch.

If you're bothered by noise, be aware that the I5 is quite close and traffic noise is constant even at night. For me, it was pleasant white noise, even with the patio door cracked open, but some people might find it a problem.

The owners were pleasant to work with.

Well maintaned

  • 4 of 5

Rented this Condo For the Month of July 2016. It was very nice & clean. Also very spacious. The Kitchen was stacked with all the things you needed for Cooking, if you wanted to Cook. A breeze was coming thru when you open the door. The pool looks great. But had no chance of using it. Carlsbad Village has plenty of great Restaurants. The French Bakery with there Pastries are Yummy. But be careful Ladies it goes to your Hips. There are Stores around within 10- 15 minutes drive. If you like German food, there is Tip- Top Meats. It is a Deli & Restaurant. Serves Breakfast. Lunch & Dinner. Prices are within Reason. To work with the Owner was very easy. Any Question we had via email was answered right way. We had a wonderful Time at this Condo. If we can we will be back for next year. Thanks Denise. Sincerely Rosita & John

Nice place, lots of space, easy walk to beach!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place, great location. Easy walk to the beach, ten minutes from Legoland, five minutes from the Tamarack on/off ramp. Great for longer-term professional stays, felt like home. The owner was helpful, friendly, & always immediately responsive.

Kalpati condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for six weeks this past summer. It was well equipped, clean and the owners were easy to work with and responsive.

The kitchen was well equipped and the TV package had a ton of both sports & movie channels. The central air conditioning worked well during warmest days , and there was also a nice cross-breeze thru the unit that we enjoyed when cooler temps allowed.

The underground parking was very secure and the location was convenient to both the beach and the village. Both were a short drive for us as we are in our sixties and hauled chairs and umbrellas. Younger folks could likely walk.

The I-5 freeway is close-by and there are the usual traffic sounds when balcony doors are open, but it became "white noise" for us after a day or two.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and it was a good experience.

Homey condo

  • 4 of 5

This is a very homey condo. It is extremely comfortable and feels like your own. Beautifully decorated. The downside was the proximity to the I5 freeway. The noise was too much to enjoy sitting outside looking at the view for too long. Also the master bedroom faced the freeway and therefore the traffic was heard at night with doors closed. This was unfortunately a big downfall for us. Also all the bedding was washed in very smelly laundry soap which gave us headaches and no sleep the first night so I rewashed these three times to get the smell out. Not what I planned on doing to start my vacation. There are lots of people with sensitivities these days and this is a huge issue for us. They were very strong! The walk to the beach is at least 15 mins. Would have preferred closer. Would have liked to be closer to the actual village as well. Too far to walk for fun each day. The owner was nice and attentive when we had a problem with the stove. It truly is a lovely place to stay if these issues don't bother you though. We all really enjoyed the home itself and the very nice neighbor! It felt like a safe place as well.

Owner's Response: Thank you Wendy for your comments. We have purchased weather stripping for the master bedroom door to mitigate the sound--hopefully it cuts the sound. I am sorry it bothered you. We have found some people are soothed by the sound-but others are not. Also, thank you for the information on laundry products. I have a friend who is quite sensitive so I understand completely. We have used the fabric softener as it was one recommended in an article on VRBO. However, we never thought about people who may have allergies or sensitivities to certain smells. That is a question we will have to ask potential renters so we can accommodate their needs. Again, thank you for your comments. We are so glad you found our condo homey and hope you choose to visit again.

Had everything we needed. We liked the location and mostly drove to wherever we wanted to go. The weather was great compared to where we were getting away from. Minnesota.

Car: recommended

A great place to come and enjoy the beach!! A quick walk down the trail beside the complex to Tamarack State Beach. Close to the La Costa golf, tennis and spa. A few miles to Legoland. Sea World is down the freeway as is the San Diego Zoo and San Diego Zoo Safari. Del Mar Race Track and racing season (July to Sept) is 20 minutes away. Whale Watching trips abound--last summer we were amazed at the number of citing's we had!! In San Diego the Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum is a must as is a visit to the historic Hotel Del Coronado! In Balboa Park the Museums about from Natural History to the Children's Museum. Two freeway exits from our home (and across from the entrance to Costco) is the Flower Fields in bloom in the spring and summer. Amazing for any flower lover complete with tram rides through the area and a commercial garden center. For the shoppers there is a mall about 3 miles away and an Outlet Shopping Center one freeway exit away!! La Jolla Playhouse has wonderful theatre. For sports lovers depending on the season there are the San Diego Padres baseball games--a quick ride on the coaster away and the San Diego Chargers football games at QualCom Park. Just a short walk from the condo--one of the newest complexes in Carlsbad Village area--is the Village with all its boutique shops and restaurants. There are several wine bars as well as a brewery and chocolate pub in the Village The complex has 2 swimming pools and 3 spas. At the pools there are barbeques for use. Though it is located on the top floor there are both an elevator and in the front and the back of the condo there are stairs. These give easy access to all areas including the underground parking garage where there are 2 spaces. A fantastic central location with plenty of things to do!
