Special spot.

  • 5 of 5

We (two adults, two youngish kids, and a dog) were beyond comfortable at Jim and Praluck's home for several nights. The yard was perfect for our dog and our kids. We loved having the outdoor shower for post-beach cleanup! I spent each morning relaxing outside with my coffee, reading and watching the birds in the bird bath. You're right in town, and practically on the sand. Jim and Praluck are welcoming and responsive. It's a great stay- we'll be back!

Loved this place.

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place. The owners have made it so comfortable. This is an ideal place if you want a quiet hideaway so close to a beautiful beach and great town all within easy walking distance.

This place is a bonafide slice of heaven. The interior is very well designed and comfortable, and most of all, about 1/3rd the size of the exterior-- which is to say there is a KICKASS outdoor area! Firepit, grill, huge 12 seater table under string lights, a barkdust area perfect for wiffleball... and all of it ensconced in lush greenery that offers as much privacy as it does beauty. We stayed there for 8 nights and had as many wonderful memorable family dinners.

The owners are really lovely folks, a beautiful couple, generous with their space and really warm to our kids. There is a clean and very nicely converted shack in the yard that has a small loft platform bed tat our girls deemed their 'hangout', so there is even a wonderful nook for kids.

Access was a breeze, the location is perfect, and the house itself is nothing shy of wonderful. If I could pick a single place in all of Carlsbad to spend time with my family, this is it, 100%.

Great owners! Great Location! Great Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Incredible hosts! My girlfriend and I attended a wedding in the area and decided to go out a week early to enjoy the great SoCal weather. This cottage was perfect. Location to the beach is 1.5 blocks, 10min walk to central Carlsbad Village, 10min walk to the Coaster station for easy access to San Diego. A great happy hour bar 1 block from the cottage to enjoy the sunsets. The cottage has everything from beach gear to Kitchen supplies included. The outdoor space is the best of all, very private with great amenities.

Praluck and Jim were around to answer any questions we had.

This is a Great place - Highly recommended

Perfect beach home

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this house and our stay here! Praluck and Jim are so nice and accessible if needed, and we felt at home immediately. So much private outdoor space, we felt like we had our own little island! We can't wait to come back next year!
