House, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 8.

Four bedroom house three blocks from the beach! Steps to Carlsbad Village or a walk on the board walk overlooking the ocean. Great restaurants and bars along Carlsbad Village Drive. We bought our beach home new so it has all the upgraded amenities - granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and decorated in beach decor. Indoor fireplace, patio with outdoor grill. We have bikes and boogie boards for a little fun in the great weather and getting a little exercise. Antique shops close by an outlet mall for some great shopping deals. Quiet neighborhood has great ambiance for a relaxing vacation. Three blocks to the Coaster Train station so you can easily travel to the other beach towns including San Diego for a day trip.

About Pamela Basila

We purchased this home as a summer get-away from the hot Arizona summers. We hope to retire here in the near future. Love the cool and sunny Carlsbad summer months! The weather is great here all year round.

Pamela Basila purchased this condo in 2007

Why Pamela Basila chose Carlsbad

We love Carlsbad and the vibe of the Village. This is a great area to spend time with our kids. Plenty to see and do for all ages. The neighborhood is quaint and close to everything (beach, restaurants, coaster train). The kids love to boogie board in the ocean. We like to relax with friends and just enjoy our surroundings.

What makes this condo unique

Walking to restaurants, watch the surfers, enjoy the beach, bike rides through the village, farmer's market every week along with craft shows, coaster station is 3 blocks away for an easy escape to San Diego and other outlining beach towns.

Nice condo in great location

  • 4 of 5

This 4-bedroom condo was just what we needed! There were 2 couples staying here for a month, and there was plenty of room to give everyone their own space! The condo was clean, nicely decorated, and well stocked! The only comment I would make is to reiterate other reviews and say that the carpets both upstairs and downstairs are terribly stained! Since we were there for a month, we had to do housekeeping several times, so it was really noticeable to us! We all like to read and felt that the lighting was not too good for reading, and the living room furniture, while very attractive, was not really that comfortable. Usually don't sit around much anyway, but this February it was very cool and rainy in Carlsbad. But the beds were wonderful! And the side patio is great for morning coffee! The condo is only 2 blocks from the Village, great restaurants, shopping, and the farmers market! A Mexican grocery store is just around the corner and Lola's is just a block away! And only 5 blocks from the beach (cuz you can't go as the crow flies!). You are able to walk everywhere! The train station is 3 blocks, which we took to San Diego twice! A great condo, Pam was a pleasure to work with! A perfect place to stay in Carlsbad!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We recently replaced all the flooring in the condo. On the second level, all the bedrooms were re-carpeted. We installed ceramic tile flooring on the first level. All is new as of September 2017. Many of the furnishing were replaced over the past year including the bedrooms and living area. Many good updates!

Best place to stay in Carlsbad

We had the best time for the 4th of July! Great location, great location, great location! Easy walk to downtown Carlsbad and 5-7 min walk to the beach. Owners and management was wonderful. This house has everything!

Great location in Carlsbad

  • 4 of 5

We had a death in the family and trying find a place near Oceanside with two days notice for six adults flying from around the country was somewhat difficult. They were very helpful and accommodating in our last minute booking. The home was close to several restaurants and walking distance to the beach. We only stayed for a few days but it would have been very comfortable for a month.

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

I actually feel that this house is undersold because the pictures do not do it justice. The rooms are larger than they appear in the pictures and the master bathroom has a great spa tub, plus shower! Everytime I'd wish there was something, such as scissors, which I wouldn't think to bring on vacation, I'd look in a drawer and it was there. When the battery went out in the ceiling fan I thought I'd have to go out and buy batteries, but I looked in a drawer and they were right there! Good sound-proofing too, the home is pretty close to the train line, but if you close the windows you can't hear it much, plus you don't hear a lot of house noise when you are in the house (e.g. can't hear someone in the shower if you are in the bedroom). Neighbors were quiet. Very enjoyable stay! I'll definitely be back!

Excellent value - terrific location!

  • 5 of 5

My family has vacationed in Carlsbad several times over the past few years and this property was our favorite, no question! Spacious bedrooms, lovely kitchen, and the location can't be beat. We enjoyed walking to the beach and to the good restaurants nearby. Having all of the beach toys and beach towels at our disposal was great.

Car: not necessary

Lego Land, Sea World, San Diego Zoo and San Diego Wildlife Park just minutes away! Outlet shopping is the best. Bike along the boardwalk or through Carlsbad Village. Several parks are within walking distance. Take the coaster train downtown for a 30 minute ride and see a ball game and forget about the traffic!
