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 Carlsbad

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 back, 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.

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.

Another fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

Julie's place is in the perfect location - steps to a convenient and safe crossing to the beach; steps to the village; steps to great restaurants. This is our second stay at this location - this time with our 4 year old who thoroughly enjoyed himself and the fact that he could also walk anywhere! Julie's place is immaculate and the outdoor space is so commodious, we spend most of our time out there when not out and about other places. In addition, Julie and her husband, Ian, are wonderful hosts and always available to help. I recommend this place whole heartedly.

Perfect location near beach and village. Immaculate. Beautifully decorated and appointed.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed two nights, thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. Perfect for two. Would work with a third person or perhaps two younger children. A short walk to beautiful Robert Frazee State Beach and a short walk to Carlsbad village. The cottage was immaculate, beautifully decorated and appointed with all the amenities one could want. It is clear that Julie has great attention to detail and has put a lot of thought into making this a first class property. Carlsbad is very bike friendly so bring yours or rent from one of the establishments in town. Food we enjoyed: Pizza Port (outstanding local brews and a great lunch special), Board and Brew (sandwiches) and Cafe Topes (amazing breakfast!). Olde Ivy Antiques on State Street had some really cool stuff and Humble Olive Oils was a great place to gift shop for friends back home. Thanks again, Julie!! :)

Cozy cottage close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to stay at Julie's cottage and are very glad we did!! This is a small but very nice cottage that is a 5 minute walk to the beach and 5 minute walk to the downtown. GREAT LOCATION!! In addition to a nice bathroom indoors, the cottage included an outdoor shower for cleaning off after a day at the beach as well as a very large patio area for sitting around and reading or conversing. In addition, there is a separate little building that had a washer/dryer and all the beach equipment that you would need.

Ian and Julie are the landlords and live right in front of the cottage in their home and were extremely nice and accommodating. They went out of their way to insure that our vacation was as good as it could be.

Our favorite restaurants included "Norte" for Mexican, the "Naked Café" for breakfast or lunch and "Vinaka" in the morning for great coffee or mochas. For live music, we went to the "Coyote Grill" as they had live music most every night. There is also a local theatre that has plays, but unfortunately they were in a break period between plays, so we were unable to attend a show.

We really like Carlsbad for the great beach and fun downtown, all within short walking distance of this great cottage. We told Ian and Julie that we would be coming back next year at the same time.

Would definitely stay here again

  • 5 of 5

This was a last minute find as we wanted to stay in Carlsbad for my birthday and be close to the beach. Julie was quick to respond and we were lucky to get the cottage for two days. Only 2 blocks to the beach and very easy walking distance to the village. The outdoor shower was perfect for my husband who surfs as well as the surf racks. The inside was cozy but not cramped and the interior was nicely remodeled. It worked well for the 3 of us. The added bonus was the private area outside. Plenty of space to lounge around, have your morning coffee or afternoon drinks. As we were on a 10 day road trip, the washer & dryer were a huge plus! The neighborhood was quiet, however, parking was a challenge due to it being summer. We had to wait until later in the evening to move our vehicle closer to the property, but after that, didn't need to drive anywhere because the beach and restaurants were so close. Thanks again, Julie & Ian, for sharing your lovely cottage with us. We hope to be back again.
