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.

Wonderful Beach Cottage. It was perfect location for our quick trip to the beach. Julie was an absolutely wonderful host. I highly recommend this cottage for a quiet get away.

Within walking distance to the beach and downtown Carlsbad.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Small but perfect for a long weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was actually a little bigger than it looked in the pictures and with the outdoor space we never felt cramped. The owners were extremely responsive and even told us we could park in front of their driveway if need be since it was a crazy holiday weekend. I would definitely recommend it to friends or stay again ourselves! It is a perfect location for the beach and to easily walk to Carlsbad Village!

Perfect! Private and comfortable near the beach

  • 5 of 5

There are so many things I loved about this cottage... amazing privacy (well placed fences keep neighbors from looking directly into the windows), a wonderful outdoor area, comfortable bed, large shower, perfectly sized kitchen with a full spice rack (nice touch), cozy throw rugs in just the right places, and extra blankets for cool nights. Beach rentals can often smell musty and many are decorated in "early American garage sale." This one wasn't -- it was immaculately clean, updated, and lovely. It felt like someone had prepared it just for me. It's small (one or two adults is perfect) and that was just the right size for my little escape from the real world. I especially appreciated the extra touches like a nice paper towel holder, higher quality toilet paper (yes that matters), and plenty of towels. Huge thanks to the owners for their willingness to add the extra touches to this lovely cottage, and their ability to make guests feel welcome and appreciated.

We had a perfect stay. The owners were very nice and helpful. The house is walking distance to shops and beach and has a kitchen if you want to eat in. We would definitely book again.
