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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Carlsbad, CA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
