About the property

"Fantastic location with all the amenities you need.." -Bryan, from Denver

This cute house is only a half block from the public white sand beach, walkway and sea wall, where people gather every night to view the spectacular sunset.

A five block walk along the beach takes you to restaurants and shops in Carlsbad Village. If you prefer biking, you can take Carlsbad Blvd past spots for great coffee and treats. The Village is walk and bike friendly.

By car or train, you will be close to many Southern California attractions, but in a private, quiet, low-traffic setting.

Accommodates: 6

Boogie boards, beach towels and toys provided. There is a large private backyard and a cozy front yard where you can sit by a fire and listen to the waves break. We provide famous Carlsbad Alkaline Spring Water for guests. (People have been coming here for this healthful drink since the 1800s.) And someone is available 24 hours day to provide anything else you need.

Neighborhood overview

The neighborhood is quiet and residential. Ours is the only vacation rental on the one-block street. We ask our guests to conform with this and respect the residents' privacy and quiet. City of Carlsbad noise ordinances do not allow loud music or loud outdoor entertaining after 10pm, weekdays and weekends.

Public transit station in Carlsbad Village is within walking distance of the house. The Coaster train serves Oceanside to San Diego, with beach town stops in between. There is ample parking for 2 cars in tandem in the house's driveway. This is included in the rental price.

We can no longer accommodate pets. Smoking is prohibited in and around the house.

I can't think of anything that could go any better.

  • 5 of 5

Our group was able to have a great time right next to the beach for a very affordable price.

This cozy bungalow is exactly that. It was a great little bungalow just steps from the beach. The big backyard was hardly mentioned in the listing but in my opinion was one of the best parts! The beach is amazing, there were tons of fun eateries just a minutes walk away, and the long driveway made parking of a few cars a breeze. The fold out beds are awesome and the kitchen was large enough for us to cook a huge breakfast for our group. Overall we were looking for a relaxing beach getaway and we got that and more with this rental. The owner was very helpful and more than accommodating to our needs! I would love to come back again! Thank you for everything!

Comfortable and close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

My family of three enjoyed staying here. The property is 1/2 block to the beach making my morning wake-up dip/swim easy. The yard is well-cared for, surrounded by beautiful palm trees. The indoor furnishings are basic but fine. The kitchen had me flashing back to the '80s. The ice cube dispenser on the freezer door was out of order. There were no more wood logs in the garage for us to enjoy a fire in the chiminea. But the shower was nice and hot, beds were comfortable, and the beach access more than makes up for the minor shortcomings.

Cute, old CA style bungalow 2 houses to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Older style CA house. Perfect for a family or 2 couples. If you are looking for a totally renovated place with bells and whistles this is not it. If you are looking for a simple, clean place right near the beach this is it. The beds were comfortable. A.C. was working in the living room needed the portable fan to push the cool air into the bedrooms. Could use one more portable fan for the 2nd bedroom. But at night the cool breeze cools the bedroom as the windows open. The couches are comfortable for the kids to sleep on.Overall it was perfect for our family weekend getaway to the beach.

Location was great; proximity to Ocean was very good. Housekeeping needs some attention - beds were not properly made, no lightbulb over kitchen sink, remote for kitchen light needed a battery - had to call manager for battery location, overall lighting was not good, especially in kitchen and "great room". Door threshholds and window sills were in very bad condition. Front and back yards looked very nice, but it was too cold and rainy to take advantage of them.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry the weather was not pleasant during your stay. That is a rare occurrence in Carlsbad. The confusion about the bed making was due to the dryer breaking down and housekeeping having to make other arrangements, also a rare occurrence. You are welcome to come back at a discount any time.
