About the property

Beach, Restaurants, Outdoor Pool, Hot Tub

Welcome to our home. This incredible location is just steps to the beach with conveniences like Starbucks, groceries and restaurants just a few steps away. Our contemporary San Diego beach house is located just a few blocks off the historic 101 Pacific Coast Highway which runs parallel to the ocean. Only having been converted to a rental in December 2014, we strive to make our house feel like a home away from home.

Total relaxation or activities await. The community includes a recreation area with an outdoor swimming pool, large enough for swimming laps, hot tub, tennis courts, and basketball and volleyball courts. It is just a short walk to the beach for boogie boarding, surfing or just relaxing. There is a quaint shopping village near the house with a Starbucks, Ralphs grocery store, pharmacy, Cafe, Pick Up Sticks, Sushi, Benihana, Subway and other conveniences.

Our home features a deluxe TV package with 3 televisions, high-speed internet, free WI-fi, and a whole house water filtration system with an additional reverse osmosis system for the best tasting drinking water you'll find anywhere. The house is rented fully furnished with linens & towels, a fully equipped kitchen including pots & pans, utensils etc. There is a tastefully decorated large Master suite with a deep circular tub in the upgraded dual sink master bath. Two other bedrooms (one upper, one lower) have queen beds. The loft area has a sofa that converts to two twin bed and a treadmill for keeping up on your fitness and board-games for family entertainment. The double car garage has toys for the beach and pool, along with a wagon for carrying the supplied boogie boards and fins to the beach.

Pricing reflects the season. NO SMOKING PLEASE. SMALL DOG OK. ANY OTHER PET SUBJECT TO OWNER APPROVAL.

For sight seeing, there are the mansions of La Jolla (called the Beverly Hills of San Diego and Rancho Santa Fe (part-time home to Phil Mickelson, Madonna and Elton John) with its unique combination of estates, rolling hills, horse trails and golf courses, Mission Beach with large picnic areas and a bay for small watercraft, paddle boarding,etc. Head south to San Diego to tour historic Old Town with lots of authentic, delicious Mexican food, cultural interest -music, dancing, shopping. A few miles further south, near downtown are the communities of Hillcrest, the Gas Lamp district, the famous Hotel Del Coronado. From the downtown San Diego harbor you can take a Harbor cruise, and many more activities. North 90 mins takes you to LA and all of its attractions – great for day trips.

About Sean

We are parents to twin boys and are originally from Canada. We're moving back to Vancouver, BC so our children can grow up near family. We love Carlsbad and Southern California and want to visit often so our sons can enjoy all the fun and exciting things there are to do in SoCal.

Sean purchased this house in 2013

Why Sean chose San Diego County

We bought this property as our family home, and with a job change back to Canada we will use it as our vacation home. We have lived in several of the Carlsbad beach communities for many years before deciding on this neighborhood. We love its proximity to the beach, shopping and dining as well as the outdoor recreation facility that includes a pool, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts.

What makes this house unique

The neighborhood is a great mix of couples and families. The gated community participates in the various holidays and people decorate for Halloween and Christmas. The surrounding neighborhoods are beautiful with lush green areas, flowers and palm trees and are very well maintained. There are walking paths throughout the community and neighboring communities so you can take a different route each time you go out.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a month while our new home was being finished. We had 2 adults, 2 teenagers and two dogs and there was plenty of space for all of us. The owners made the process very simple and were very accommodating. The house is decorated nicely and completely up to date. The neighborhood is very friendly and felt very safe. We enjoyed all of the amenities as well such as the pool, tennis courts and volleyball court. The beach and shops are all within walking distance. We highly recommend this property.

2 Month Summer Stay

  • 5 of 5

This home was a home away from home for us. We stayed here for 2 months starting in the middle of May with our two young boys. There was more than enough room for our family. I highly recommend this house and neighborhood for families with kids. We enjoyed having a pool a short walk from the house as well as a short walk to the beach. Sean was very easy to work with. The house was very neat and clean when we arrived. We hope to visit again soon!

Lovely Home with many amenities in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this spacious, comfortable, well-appointed home. It was immaculate, had lots of space and had everything we needed for our extended stay. We enjoyed walking to the beach (about a seven-minute walk) and viewing the ocean every time we left the neighborhood by car. The owners were great to work with.

Great Rental, great owners!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this rental for two months. The rental was very clean, organized and well stocked. The owners were very easy to communicate with and responded quickly to any questions. We loved the location...close to the beach, easy acess to Encinitas and Carlsbad. The complex was gated and everyone was very friendly. We had young children and they enjoyed riding bikes. We used the pool often, it was wonderful. We will definitely be back if we need a Carlsbad rental again! Thanks so much Sean!
