This is our second year of staying here in March! We have family in the area and it is a good central for us. This is a very spacious and well equipped home with a lovely back yard. Thanks for a good month!
Lovely neighborhood and home in Carlsbad
We stayed in this residential home February 2017 for 4 weeks.
THINGS WE LIKED:
1) This property is in a cul-de-sac
2) Laundry room is big and located on same floor as all bedrooms
3) Backyard patio, hot tub, grill, and fire pit
4) Roomy house with space to spread out
5) Neighborhood pool a few streets away
6) Friendly neighbors
IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING THIS PROPERTY, NOTE:
1) The garage and several closets are locked off.
2) The decor is a bit of a 1980's flashback.
3) Extra furnishings may make some rooms feel a little crowded.
IF I COULD SUGGEST IMPROVEMENTS:
1) Upgrade the mattresses or add toppers. 3 of the 4 beds are very firm, even firmer than my husband could stand and my 8yo can usually sleep on. The property manager said no one ever complained about the mattresses, but it is likely most people feel shy about mentioning it. (We ended up buying a memory foam mattress topper to get through the month.)
2) Reduce furnishings in each room by 1/4. This is a beautiful and airy home, but the extra end tables, dining chairs, flowers, tabletop decor, etc. made some rooms feel crowded.
3) Reduce contents in the guest room closets. We moved lots of books and games to make room for suitcases.
4) Troubleshoot why the thermostat takes 4 hours to register its target temperature. It made the bedroom temperatures uncomfortable by mid-morning (3am or so). Guests are not paying for utilities, but I would want this resolved as a homeowner.
This is a great property in a pretty neighborhood with ideal proximity to stores, parks, and water. The neighbors are quiet and friendly. We would consider staying here again, being prepared for the beds and the space concerns.
Great location, great property
Our family of 5 adults and 2 children enjoyed this well appointed home and found everything well maintained. Our purpose was to visit with our son & family and we were able to spend time at the house as well as visiting Legoland, Zoo and beaches. The yard looked incredible yet we were not able to use it due to our plans and the one open day, it rained. Working with Rebecca was great, she took care of everything and helped make our trip the best.
One thing I would mention is the home was advertised with beds King, Queen, Double yet we found 2 Kings and a trundle. All worked out yet others might want to know in advance.
We definitely look forward to coming back
Great Home in a Nice Quiet Neighborhood.
This property was great! We were just in the right location. Not far to beaches and shopping, and as close to San Diego as we wanted to be. It's on a quiet street in a
nice neighborhood and perfect for our vacation to the San Diego area. Beds were comfortable and the rooms were a nice size. Kitchen is well stocked and there was plenty of room at the table for our family. I probably would have given it 5 stars except we had no internet service all the time we were there and some of the the backyard furniture could use replacing. Rebecca was great to work with and very responsive.
Hi Gordon, It was great meeting you and your family! Thank you for all your kind words. I just wanted to let you know the internet is now working and Time Warner were able to determine the problem was on their end. Come back and see us anytime, we loved having you as our guest.
We reviewed several properties and were very surprised at how beautiful the house was when we arrived. The pictures are nice, but seeing it in person was even better. Great neighborhood, good location. We had 6 adults and one 2 year old and were very comfortable. The backyard was wonderful with the hot tub and the grill. I highly recommend this property. And Rebecca was wonderful too!
Comfortable both inside and outside
This was a fantastic house for our family's visit to San Diego over Thanksgiving week. The inside was clean, comfortable, roomy and well-equipped. But the real jewel was the back yard with the gas grill and fire pit. We spent several nights sitting around the fire pit, talking and roasting marshmallows under the stars. It is located in a nice subdivision and not too far from stores and restaurants. We have rented multiple VRBO's across the country and this house was right up there with the best we have had.
So glad you had a great time in our home, please know you and your family are welcome back anytime!!
