About the property

This top (3rd) floor 1 bedroom condo had a recent total remodel and is appointed with first class accessories throughout. Sitting behind the gates of the Resort, the Balboa building has its own pool with barbeque facilities. Our building is not part of the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa® so our guests do not have access to the golf, tennis, resort pools, or fitness club but do have access to the Chopra Center, restaurants, bars, spa, and boutiques of the beautifully landscaped resort. Groceries and more dining options are a short walk. You can cook a gourmet meal in the fully equipped kitchen (which includes a range with full-size oven, dishwasher, full-size refrigerator, microwave plus small appliances), or barbeque poolside while enjoying the climate that is world renown.

Numerous world class beaches are located in Carlsbad and Encinitas. Enjoy a beach picnic with use of our beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, and basket.

This is the perfect vacation location with Legoland only a 10 minute drive. Seaworld, the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Old Town, and the San Diego Zoo Safari Park all a 25 minute drive. Torrey Pines, La Jolla, the Gaslamp District, and Coronado are all easily accessible. Secure underground garage makes parking easy.

For shoppers, the Carlsbad Outlets are only minutes away, as well as The Forum Carlsbad. And for more unique entertainment The Cinepolis Luxury Theaters are just up the street.

This is a great condo, very nicely decorated and a great set-up. All conveniences included from appliances to towels, etc. Great for family of 4, with 2 queen beds, 1 1/2 baths, family room, full kitchen, balcony, 2 TVs. Beautiful setting at the resort, quiet neighborhood, and condo overlooks pool. Owners are helpful and very responsive in emails. Highly recommend this unit for style and convenience!

Sophisticated, stylishly designed for convenience

  • 5 of 5

It was only missing maid service! It was a very enjoyable condominium. It felt like a hotel suite with a real kitchen and your own washer and dryer. The ability to augment the stay with day passes to the spa really added a luxury to this rental experience. This was our first rental with VRBO. The owner was easy and professional to deal with. We look forward to a return visit.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful two week stay! The condo is clean, comfortable and equipped with lots of extras....paper products, beach chairs, cooler, iron, washer/dryer, games, etc. The location is great, La Costa Plaza is enjoyable to walk around, and restaurants are plentiful. The manager was readily available and quick to get back with us. We look forward to booking this condo again in the future!

Updated and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this attractive condo for 2 1/2 weeks while helping out our son's family with the birth of a new baby. It was such a welcome refuge to come home to after a busy day. The fully stocked kitchen made it easy for me to prepare meals. There were many nice touches like lots of clothes hangers for clothes, an efficient washer and dryer, and many supplies like paper towels, etc. The towels and sheets were of nice quality and plentiful. We look forward to renting this great condo again !

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the condo. The decorating and finishes were EXCELLENT -- someone is an exceptional decorator and found excellent craftsmen.

The 4 stairs from the parking area to the elevator were an obstacle we overcame with a wheelchair that we rented. Otherwise they would have been a problem with our walker.

Thyank you for working out the dates that suited our needs.
