Why Peter or Faye Ogilvie chose Carlsbad Village

We love this condo complex! This was the property we stayed at when we first visited Carlsbad. We discovered how wonderful a location this is for our walks to the beach, exploring the village, and spending Tutu (Grandparent) time with our young grandson who learned to walk here. After our initial 10 day stay, we decided the Monterey Gage condos was perfect for us, and knew that we would be returning.

What makes this condo unique

Despite its modest square footage, the unit feels spacious because of its open beam ceilings and vented skylight. An added benefit - there's no one above us or below us. This condominium complex provides privacy yet gives easy access to the vibrant Carlsbad community.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Tutu's place was very nice. Fabulous location a couple blocks from a great beach and lots of restaurants within walking distance. The condo is very comfortable and looks to be recently painted and refurbished on the inside. We would definitely stay here again.

great stay

  • 5 of 5

"A relaxing retreat in the heart of Carlsbad" is a very accurate description of Tutu's Place. The Monterey Gage Condos are a little Oasis and when you step out of the lovely gardens you are right in the laid back village of Carlsbad and a short stroll to the beach and ocean.

Tutu's Place is extremely comfortable with everything you need to feel right at home. Faye was very helpful throughout the booking process and beyond to ensure we had a lovely stay.

We love Carlsbad and our stay at Tutu's place perfected our vacation there. Great stay and we hope very much to return.

Thanks Faye and Peter

Owner's Response: You are very welcome, Lesley. I really appreciated how easy it was working with you - it hardly mattered that we were half way around the world. We had a wonderful time visiting your homeland - Hope that your stay in Carlsbad was as much fun as ours was in the UK!

An inviting, comfortable place with everything you need including the ocean a block and a half away!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this clean, lovely, relaxing place. It was so thoughtfully furnished and aesthetically decorated with interesting prints and art adding to the serenity and the feeling we'd just escaped to our own beachside retreat. So many nice touches! Everything we needed was provided, from camping chairs and beach towels to pots, pans and utensils, and a television on which to follow the March Madness games! Not only was it a quick couple of blocks before we were sinking our toes in the sand and reveling in the waves, it was also only a few blocks in the other direction to the small shops and restaurants where we found exactly what we'd hoped for--good vintage jewelry and amazingly delicious food from what immediately became favorite restaurants. Highly recommended! Could not ask for better hosts or a more convenient location. This place felt like a second home, making us feel so relaxed. Tutu's Place is special!

Dare I say.... AWESOME!!!!

  • 5 of 5

At the risk of filling the condo schedule year around (thus making it less available for us in the future), this place was ideal. Everything from email inquiry to the owners, to an awesome doorlock system, to location and comfort, it was great!! Truly 5 min to food and coffee and dinner type restaurants and beach.

Bed was comfy, ceiling fans in each room helped circulate air throughout, and the beach towels and other add ons were a perfect supplement.

Crazy, but as we were here for a soccer tourney, we found ourselves looking at heavy downpours of rain. Would love to have an umbrella. Lol.

Perks: close to beach, freeway is 5 min away, the city of Oceanside is just 10 min north or so, you get your own parking space right under your unit. I could go on and on.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed Carlsbad - despite the rain - and will add an umbrella for those occasional wet days. It's always a pleasure to share Tutu's Place with families like yours - much of the pleasure is in the email and phone conversations - Thank you!
