About Marcos Mendez
Being California native born, we are happy to be able to share our home with others. Our sunshine, beach and the great Pacific Ocean are truly treasures to share.
Marcos Mendez purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Marcos Mendez chose Carlsbad
We were blessed in 2001 with locating this large lot right next to the beach- a terramar treasure indeed!
What makes this Cottage unique
Enjoy the Immense Italian Stone Pine which graces our front garden. Planted in 1953 it boasts a 'waistline' equal to some cars!

Lovely spot, wonderful people!
From the minute I stepped into the cottage, I felt right at home. I had the pleasure of staying there for just over a month, and truly wanted to stay longer. Marcos and Karen were the ultimate host & hostess; warm, welcoming, ever attentive to my needs. The property is very private and offers both a front and back porch, perfect spots for reading, lounging or just enjoying the California sunshine. The cottage is very nicely furnished and the kitchen is well equipped. Beautiful artwork adorns the walls and shelves; Karen definitely has an artistic touch. And talk about a great location! It's a 5 minute walk to the beach and within walking distance to the Village of Carlsbad. Bottom line, I loved my stay and would highly recommend Terramar Garden Beach Cottage.
The Perfect Cottage Near the Sea
The owners of the rental were so inviting and so helpful with every question or need that we had. They invited us to pick lemons from their trees and arugula from their small garden. It was an absolute delight. The functionality and space with its artistic decor made this place comfortable and inviting... My husband and I took daily walks by the ocean, dined at the many restaurants in the lovely village of Carlsbad, and spent time in the private patios that the cottage provided. Our daughter and family live near by, and we were able to see them often. I cannot imagine any negative experiences whatsoever by anyone staying at this cottage. We will without a doubt be back to this lovely place in the perfect sea community.
Terramar Garden Beach Cottage disappointment.....lacking in important amenities
Tried to sit on the outdoor patio furniture, but, got wet instead ......furniture not protected from the recent rain. Microwave positioned too high at level of 6 feet. No dishwasher as advertised.
No handy electrical plugs for recharging computer devices.
Poor lighting in bedroom. Bed had odour of stinky feet. No properly working heater in the bedroom. A 'silverfish' bug found in dresser.
TV remote controller not working properly....took four days to get it attended to, and then the 'guide' button still never worked.
The gardens surrounding the home were lush and lovely.
We have used VRBO for 10 years now & this was the biggest disappointment...we deserve a rebate. Wendy T
I enjoyed my two week stay at the cottage. It was very private and only a short walk to the beach. Marcos was very friendly and inviting.
Terramar Garden Beach Cottage was ideal
My wife and I spent the month of November at the Terramar Garden Beach Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed it. The cottage has all the amenities to make life comfortable. Marcos and Karen are exceptional hosts and are very responsive to any needs. The location is excellent being close to the beach, good shopping and downtown. We will look forward to a return visit.
Marcos and Karen were great hosts, the MIL cottage was spacious and comfortable. Location was just what we wanted. Will visit again.
Terramar is located walking distance to the quieter, child friendly wide beach south of Tamarack State Beach. Just 10 minutes East is Legoland, The Flower Fields, Premium Shopping, Museum of Making Music, Gemological Institute of America, The Crossing Golf Course and the San Diego Botanical Gardens. If you love deep sea fishing or boating, 10 minutes to the North is the Oceanside Pier where boating rentals and charters are available as well as seaside dining. If you want to try out Paddle boarding, jet skis or kayaking, rentals are available at Carlsbad Lagoon 5 minutes from the house.
Walk along the Carlsbad ocean boardwalk at sunset and enjoy people watching, drag your toes through the sand or stop by one of many of our ocean front restaurants for cocktails or dinner.
If you want to venture further, take the train downtown to San Diego Old Town or Santa Fe Station. Downtown it is a quick cab to the famous Balboa park with the Old Globe Theater, San Diego Zoo, and many museums. Also located downtown on the San Diego waterfront are the Midway aircraft carrier and the Star of India both open to the public for tours.
If Disneyland is on your list it is a day trip North to Anaheim! At the end of your day of activities relax in our beautiful garden and enjoy your privacy!
