About Julie Davies

My husband and I are originally from England.

We have lived in the US many years; raising our boys in Carlsbad's wonderful climate and outdoor lifestyle.

Julie Davies purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Julie Davies chose San Diego County

We bought this property for the location to the beach and the village. There are two stand alone cottages on the property we live in the front one and rent out the rear unit, which has own private entrance.

What makes this cottage unique

Location, on weekends we walk along the beach front, walk out to dinner, browse shops. No need to drive anywhere.

Great Location and property

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property is pretty ideal, close to the beach and downtown Carlsbad. There are beach chairs, towels, and sun umbrella which were nice additions.

The outside space is very nice, spacious and private. Inside space is comfortable and has all the items needed for an extended stay.

Check in was a breeze.

I would definitely recommend this property if visiting the area.

What a lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two kids and myself had a wonderful weekend at the Cozy Cottage! It is very small, but is set up very practically and thoughtfully, such that the low square footage didn't bother us. As other previously said, it is a very close walk to the beach and downtown Carlsbad. We absolutely loved it!!! Thanks so much to Julie!

I travel to Carlsbad often.This was my first time staying at Julie and Ian's cottage.I absolutely loved it! The location is perfect,the cottage is immaculate,Everything that you need is right there,even a laundry room,beach chairs,umbrella,and a wonderful gas fire pit! Julie and Ian are amazing hosts, making certain that every detail is perfect. I could go on and on,however I hope that I have not said too much or my cottage maybe rented out when I need it!!
