About John 'Curt' Fornal

We have been living in San Diego near the ocean for over 20 years...our friends and family have recommended numerous restaurants and fun places that will provide you the hours of enjoyment we have had at reasonable prices....we call it Local Knowledge. When we visit a new area this type of information can make our vacation the best possible....we will make every effort to do the same for you...

John 'Curt' Fornal purchased this house in 2005

Why John 'Curt' Fornal chose Carlsbad

We have been in the real estate business both as top sales agents and lenders for over 20 years, so we have seen many areas of San Diego and California.....Del Mar was one of our favorite places as well as that of many of the rich and famous......When we looked at Carlsbad it had all the physical features of Del Mar without any of the congestion present today.....The best of San Diego county family living is right here and we have one of the youngest homes, close to the Pacific, to enjoy it.....Many new restaurants and places to work and shop continue to open but Carlsbad is big and they planned for the expansion very well.... come and see

What makes this house unique

New homes along the Pacific within walking distance of the ocean are much harder to find as this was the most valuable land...La Jolla, Del Mar and Coronado all had great places but most of the houses were 20 to 30 years old or more....we have the best of both worlds....newer features and close proximity to what almost everyone in California wants...clean beautiful beaches with few crowds...Carlsbad has more than 10 miles of coastline.

Fantastic vacation rental, perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

This is our 6th year coming down to SoCal and this has been the best vacation rental home, thus far for our family of six! We will definitely rent it again! Not only is it perfectly located with easy and quick access to I5, it was mere minutes from Carlsbad's State Beach, which is a beautiful stretch of the coast. The home was spacious for all of us, very well equipped and a great kitchen, especially when we still cooked a lot. The community pool was a 2 minute walk from the house, which was great. If we forgot something for the kids, one of us could quickly and easily dash back to grab. The owners were wonderful to deal with, very attentive and accessible.

Comfort, Quality and Convenience

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of June in this lovely home in a gated community.

Location of this house is excellent. 2 blocks to the beach and close to the freeway for easy access to my husband's work. Peaceful outdoor area with dining area, grill, lounge chairs with lush palm trees and plants. Master bedroom is very comfortable-king size bed.

Convenient to San Diego (30 minutes away) and some great coastal towns.
