Casa Paradiso West

Our wonderfully private single family residence, Casa Paradiso West, is a casual, yet sophisticated two story residence located near fun, adventure and relaxation in Carlsbad, about ¾ of a mile from the beach, ¼ mile from the Lagoon, close to Lego Land Carlsbad, Oceanside Harbor, San Diego, Orange County, Inland Empire and the San Bernardino Mountains.

The house is 2,650 sf and includes a second floor master suite with a king bed (bath has a large oval tub) and shower, two additional bedrooms with queen beds and 1.5 baths and a full office. The second and third bedrooms share a full bath. There is an outdoor shower (hot & cold water) near the garage for post beach clean-up. The kitchen is fully equipped (lots of appliances) and very large, so you can cook and prepare gourmet meals for fun and friends. The den has a very large fireplace and big screen TV. The living room is large and very casual for entertaining. The home has Wi-Fi throughout.

The office has a scanner, printer and large display, just in case you have to work during your stay.

The back yard has a large entertainment area with an adjacent above ground Jacuzzi that fits 8 and a fire pit for evening fun. The patio furniture and large BBQ complete the very private backyard. Behind the patio is a large grass area for kids and adult fun. This yard is perfect for entertaining large groups or just another couple. When you want peace and quiet, this backyard is just the prescription.

We have several bikes for your use during your stay. Parking is very easy on our private driveway. Our home is close to all the fun, beaches and shopping. You can very easily ride bicycles to downtown Carlsbad from our house.

The fee includes once a week cleaning service, use of our bicycles, beach chairs, games, cards and lots of relaxation.

Enjoy & relax!!!

Beautifully landscaped, convenient, well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

My wife, myself, and our two young daughters have stayed in a lot of vacation rentals. Some places don't even provide rolls of toilet paper - this place had every single thing we possibly needed. The front yard and backyard are great. From the front you don't even really see the street or other houses (a rarity in SoCal) and the backyard was fantastic. We spent as much time as we could in the backyard eating, sitting by the firepit or soaking in the hot tub. The rest of the house was great too - we kept telling each other we could see ourselves living here.

We couldn't find any faults anywhere. We will definitely rent here again the next time we are in SoCal.

Quiet, well appointed vacation home, closed to beach, Legoland, Sea World and San Diego Z00.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this 3 bedroom 2.5 bath home. The house was well appointed with top of the line appliances and new furnishings. The backyard was great for entertaining. The mature landscaping was lush and beautiful. Everything you needed for the beach was provided, so if you were flying in you could pack light and still have an enjoyable time. The home had brand new air conditioning, which we only had to turn on one day, but is was nice to have. Most days the ocean breeze was enough to cool the house down.

Just a quick drive to downtown Carlsbad for shopping, many great restaurants, grocery stores, and beaches. Close to outlet stores, Legoland, the San Diego Zoo and Sea World, and the Scripps Aquarium. We had more to do than there were days to get it in. We also discovered great community parks for running.

The only drawback was the cleaning, which is a big deal for us. I would recommend hiring a new housekeeping team before renting the house out again. The drawers in the kitchen, the spider webs throughout the house, and under refrigerator and familyroom sofa were really bad.

Overall we would stay there again. It is a lovely home and very comfortable.

Great House for Family Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was set up great for our family. Nice big kitchen for preparing meals, big back yard for the kids to play, and location was nice and quiet. We used the BBQ grill and patio each day. I hope to return someday.

Wonderful Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

Just like Home. That is how we felt when our family got together for Thanksgiving here this year. Comfortable living area, fully stocked kitchen, nice backyard with grill, firepit and hot tub. We used it all. Rose had showed us the house in September when we were out and did a fantastic job of communicating with us the entire time. Ken is only a block or two away if any problems arise during your stay. Good location and everything you need for a comfortable stay. We would highly recommend the property to anyone and we plan on using it again when we are all back in the area. Thank you Ed, Rose and Ken.

The perfect vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family (wife and 2 teenage girls) stayed in this home for 7 days in July. We could not have asked for a more perfect vacation spot. This house offered privacy and amenities galore. The office was an unexpected surprise and offered me the opportunity to keep up with some "work stuff" in between relaxing. House was well equipped and the backyard with jacuzzi and firepit was pure paradise !
