'Our family needed more than a hotel room, so we stayed at this beautiful Carlsbad home for a whole week and loved it! It was convenient to all the San Diego favorites for our family - the Zoo, the Beach and Legoland. Our three kids felt like they had moved into paradise with the toys, the huge Game Room and the 'Island themed' kid's bedroom with its bunk beds and pictures from Hawaii! We loved using the grill and watching the sunsets from the Master balcony. We especially appreciated the easy-to-use 'safety fence' for the pool area since our kids were just learning to swim. Overall, it was the best vacation location we've ever used. The owners were great to work with and they went out of their way to serve our family. The home is better than the pictures!'

About Dale and Becky Burke

This house is not just a house, it is our home! We love it, love our community and love sharing it with our growing family of three kids, all married, and seven grandkids. It is remodeled to make it a great place for family to 'come together' and relax! We have decided to share it with others who need a great place to come together in S. California. I am a pastor and an author who travels to train busy leaders in life management principles. My wife and I have been married for 40 joyful years. If interested in renting our dream home for your family, contact us and we'll talk!

Dale and Becky Burke purchased this house in 2012

Why Dale and Becky Burke chose Carlsbad

We have lived in three parts of California, after moving here from the midwest in 1989. Let me assure you, it doesn't get any better than Carlsbad, CA with its great year round weather, beautiful beaches and close access to all the fun of S. California!

What makes this house unique

Our sunsets over the ocean are incredible when viewed from the balcony of the Master Suite with a nice glass of wine! And the pool and spa are so secluded you will feel like you have your own private world in the midst of North San Diego County. The large plumeria and hibiscus around the spa and pool will make you think you are in Hawaii. Our home was built for relaxation and family fun.

Perfect home for a memorable vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved staying in this home. It was equipped with everything we could ever need while on vacation especially for our family with small children. It was like our home away from home. Our family of 6 ( 4 children) plus grandparents were accommodated very comfortably in his home. The pool, jacuzzi and backyard patio was great for all our home meals and relaxation. Balcony from master offers privacy and great views for morning and evening. The location was great for easy access to the highways, beaches, shopping etc. Wonderful and quiet neighborhood. The owners were so kind and easy to work with. This was our first time renting this way and it met all our expectations and then some!

Wonderful Vacation Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our 3 generation family with children aged 11, 8.5 ,5 and 3.5. The house itself is spacious and comfortable. The upstairs playroom was a fabulous bonus. Kids loved the pool table and abundance of books, toys and games. The beautiful backyard with its barbecue and outside refrigerator was perfect for our meals. Everyone loved the jacuzzi and pool and pool toys. The owners are a pleasure to work with and helpful in every way. We all would highly recommend this house.

Lovely home and good location

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful family home and close to everything. The owners were so helpful with information about their home and tips about restaurants and things to do in Southern California. They were so gracious and kind. The home is very well equipped. The pool and spa are a bonus! It is home away from home. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

NZ - Wales family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This home is both spacious and easy to run with a beautiful intimate outdoor BBQ dining facility right next to the heated swimming pool and spa. Our party was 6 adults and two swim crazy little girls who pretty much lived in the pool because it was so warm and inviting.

And all this a stones throw from groceries, restaurants and beaches.

Disney took 1 hour 10 min leaving at 7:30 am and only slightly longer coming back so very easy.

With great retail therapy in the area, beautiful golf courses and a delightful climate there was something for everyone and we would certainly recommend to all. We had a blast!
