About the property

4 bedroom,3 1/2 bath with garage converted to kids rm. Close to beach, Legoland

This family friendly 4 BR 3 ½ BA custom home Is within walking distance (approx 2 blocks) to Carlsbad State Beach and has been completely refurnished with you in mind. We built this home in 2000 to be our home and are now we want to share it with you. We furnished it in the Spring of 2015 with all new beds, furniture and even art from local Artist Dave Ness.

The house has one bedroom with a king bed and full bath downstairs and three bedrooms, one with a queen, one with twin beds, and our master suite with a king bed, separate sitting room, smart TV, in-room fireplace, double sink area, large spa tub, five foot square shower for two and more than ample walk in closet. The large kitchen is well stocked and the BBQ on the patio is steps away. There are 4 SMART TVs for Netflix streaming, cable with over 100 channels and high speed wifi for your use. We have converted the garage to a kids den with Legos, crayons, toys and foosball table to give them their own vacation spot. The backyard is fully fenced and private. There is also a crib, pack n play and booster seat for the littler ones. We have tailored our home for families with young children.

If BEACH is in your plans, you’ve found the RIGHT place. An easy walk and you’re at the beach. We have provided beach toys for you to enjoy, CHAIRS, BOOGIE BOARDS, UMBRELLA, SAND TOYS, towels, coolers and a WAGON to carry them in. When you get back home you can shower off the sand in our outdoor shower.

If exploring the area is what you have in mind, you can reach the freeway a short mile away or walk to the COASTER TRAIN station and enjoy your ride to quaint downtown Carlsbad, San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, Old town, Petco Park (go Padres!) and the Del Mar Race Track.

Popular Local Areas of LEGOLAND, the Flower Fields, Carlsbad Premium Outlets and Downtown Carlsbad are within a couple of miles as well as Costco for your convenience.

You may want to drive to popular sites such as Sea World (40min), Disneyland (1 hr), San Diego Zoo (40min) or San Diego Zoo Safari (30min).

Welcome to our FAMILY home. Enjoy the PEACE, RELAXATION and ADVENTURE the beach area of North County brings. If your objective is loud parties, this is the not the place for you. Make your memories here.

About Jeanne

Born and raised in the area, we love North County. My husband and I custom built this home in 2000 for our primary residence. We have recently retired and relocated 3 miles away. We would like to share our home and have re-furnished it with you in mind. We take pride in our home and in making you comfortable. The house is located 2 short blocks from the beach. Cross the street at the light and you are there. Surf, Sand and Sun are for you to enjoy.

Jeanne purchased this house in 2000

Lovely home and location

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home worked well for 7 adults for a week's stay. Absolutely loved the Carlsbad area. There are beaches every direction you turn, and Carlsbad is in a great location for exploring in different directions, and has a very friendly feel. The home is so close to the beach and the platform for the Coaster train. Jeanne is super helpful and responds very quickly to any needs. As others have mentioned, she even provides shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, laundry soap and paper goods. We had a wonderful time. Thank you for making your home available!

Beautiful and so well stocked!

  • 5 of 5

We are very, very happy with our Carlsbad vacation!!! Jeanne and Jeff's home is absolutely beautiful and "so well stocked" as my Daughter in Law said.

Just for a little background, we booked this quite a while ago and then recently bought a house which we had not planned to do. We got everything moved but not put away! Needless to say our vacation was what we needed! To stay in this lovely home with everything we needed and not have to look at piles of things that needed to be put away was amazing. I truly relaxed and enjoyed the house, the beach and most importantly my family. I would recommend this home to eveyone..... clean, beautifuly decorated, everything you need and a delightful, quiet neighborhood close to the beach!!! Book it!! You will be glad you did! Thank you again!

Felt like home with the bonus of being vacation.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I would absolutely recommend this home! It is well maintained, clean, and thoughtfully decorated (not cheesy beach themed). We traveled with several adults and three children under the age of five. The play room was the perfect space for the kids to run wild. The kitchen is well equipped. We cooked nearly every one of our meals during our stay. I loved the amount of gathering spaces on the property, a large dining room table, an island in the kitchen with seating, the living room, and several tables and chairs outside. The neighborhood is quiet, aside from the train (but the noise never bothered us & more importantly, didn't wake anyone up). The outdoor shower was perfect to rinse off after a day at the beach. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach.

In addition, Jeanne was a wonderful owner. She promptly and kindly answered all our questions prior to our stay and even helped arrange pick up of a kid's blanket that was mistakenly left behind. Thank you Jeanne!!!

We have rented homes throughout California, Hawaii, and Utah. This home exceeded our expectations! We would stay here again.

The house could not have been better. We liked and enjoyed everything about it

  • 5 of 5

The house is VERY nice. I cannot think of anything that was lacking. It actually had extras that made it even more enjoyable, like the room for the kids to play with toys, tv, tables and more. The outdoor shower was a treat! Beds very comfy. The master suite is magnificent. This house gets an A+

Nice house for families.

  • 5 of 5

Two families with small children stayed comfortably and happily at the house. The house was clean and as described. It was two blocks from the beach and 8 mins from Legoland, stocked nicely with family amenities (e.g., stools for kids to stand on at the sinks, a baby chair, sand toys, inflatable mattresses, board games, and toys/books in the playroom - bring your own, there are only enough to keep the kids entertained while you pack/unpack). We highly recommend this vacation home if you want a family beach/ legoland vacation. Great place. 5 stars.

Perfect for a family with young kids

  • 5 of 5

This was my first VRBO experience, and I think it will be very hard to beat! My husband and I stayed for a week with our 5 year old son and 7 year old daughter. Another family with two children (of the same age) joined us for 3 nights mid-week. The house was definitely large enough to provide enough room and privacy for all of us. It was a very positive experience from start to finish. Jeanne was fantastic with providing info and details prior to arrival and was quick to respond to any communication. This beautiful beach house was loaded with supplies and amenities, they have truly thought of everything which made our stay easy and comfortable. The house was in impeccable condition and very clean.The neighbors were nice and the neighborhood felt very safe. The playroom was a real bonus for both kids and adults! The location is close to the beach, although with all of our belongings, we found it easier to drive rather than walk for our longer beach outings. We also found that we preferred some of the beaches further south (Torrey Pines and Cardiff) with a more gentle surf and some tide pools for our little ones. This house was close to the grocery store, close to the beach, close to Lego Land and the coaster access was practically right out the front door. The kids enjoyed taking the coaster down to San Diego for lunch and a harbor cruise. You can hear the train horns, but with the windows closed and the AC on, it didn't bother us and didn't seem to bother the kids who were sleeping in rooms at the front of the house where the sound would be the loudest. We also had a small fan in their room for white noise which helped. Thank you, Jeanne, for your hospitality. I highly recommend this place, especially families with young children and would love to return in the future with our family.
