About the property

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

We are not taking reservations for 2018 until November 1, 2017.

This sweet little bungalow is a half block walk from the beach, less than a mile from the village, and great restaurants are available less than a half mile in either direction on the boulevard!

Built in the '40s, the house has Old California charm with modern convenience:

Cable tv, wireless internet, nicely appointed kitchen.

Plenty of lush lawn in the backyard for private play with children and pets. Backyard is not fully fenced. Tie downs for dogs are provided. Dogs must be on leash on the sidewalk and seawall. There is an area around the lagoon where dogs are allowed. Nearest off leash beach access is in Del Mar.

There are two bedrooms - one with a queen size bed, one with a double. Sofas in the living room convert easily into two double size beds and one twin size.

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.

Loved every minute of our stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The house is adorable and comfortable and very organized with bedding and towels, etc. it was great to have a laundry room as well. the location is perfect. A very quick walk to the beautiful beach and in to town. The garage has bikes and boogie boards etc. for the beach. The back yard is big and beautiful and the sitting area in the front is great as well. We will definitely be back next year. Loved it.
