About Deanna Austin

California natives: we love our beautiful beaches, great climate and active lifestyle! We were high school sweethearts and have been married 34 years. We have amazing adult kids on both Coasts.

Fans of our Australian Shepherds, hiking, golfing, fishing, writing and painting. We appreciate great food and art! And most of all our family and friends.

In peace and joy, Craig and Deanna

Deanna Austin purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Deanna Austin chose Carlsbad

Its home! The living is easy -- you can walk or bike everywhere! The beaches, restaurants, shopping, post office, Farmers Market, and New Village Arts Theatre. The area is friendly, bustling, casual and laid back. We have kept the home's heritage while adapting to the needs of a contemporary lifestyle. The cozy, warm and casual atmosphere is authentic and supremely comfortable. Kick off your shoes and put up your feet. Or grab your shoes and explore The Village from this well positioned cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

A top feature is that we also own an all-natural bakery in Leucadia on Coast Hwy 101. We can make arrangements to deliver a custom cake, pastries or a delicious basket of scones or Nordstrom’s favorite all-natural cookies. (Yes, we make cookies for Nordstrom too!)

Adorable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is an adorable place, very nice little yard, nicely decorated and very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay very much. This is a perfect place for a dog (and the family) :) We will definitely try to stay there again and recommend it to our friends!

Everything Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Simply put, the Coastal Cottage is a wonderful place to stay! The accommodations, the owners-Deanna and Craig, and the location were all just perfect! We especially enjoyed being able to take multiple walks to the ocean and to the village of Carlsbad with its great restaurants and shops, using the onsite laundry for our daily, abundant beach laundry loads, having 2 bedrooms with very comfortable beds and pillows, and having parking and beach necessities-chairs, boogie boards, towels, etc.-- provided. Without hesitation, we would recommend the Coastal Cottage for a fabulous Southern California vacation!

Great accommodations. Everything you need. Comfortable, friendly and close to everything we love about Carlsbad.

The linen is first class, the kitchen is well equipped ( I like to cook ), and the amenities are equal to a Four Star Hotel ( I have never been in a Five Star Hotel ).

Our dog Herbie was very comfortable and that's important.

No stairs and plenty of off street parking.

It even comes with delicious cookies.

Will be returning next year.

Relaxing, clean, and welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at the cottage. With young kids, we loved that it was fenced and gated. The boys were able to run around without concern. The owners are friendly and ensured that we had what we needed. We loved it so much that we're considering making it our "go to" spot when vacationing in the San Diego area. The cookies to welcome us were an added bonus.

Amazing Vacation House in Carlsbad Village

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many vacation rentals in the past and this one was by far the best! With the great location we were able to walk to all the restaurants, shops and beaches. The house was clean and updated and we felt right at home. The owner's Deanna and Craig were available and checked in to make sure everything was going well with our stay. The first morning they even brought us fresh strawberries and delicious scones from their daughter's local bakery. We brought our 14 year old son and our dog Cooper. Our son enjoyed having his own room and our dog loved the beautiful fenced in front yard. We loved our stay so much that we have already booked a week for next summer.
