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 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.

Beautiful Home in Fabulous Area

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fabulous week in this property in Carlsbad. It's beautiful, nicely furnished, well equipped and yet extremely family friendly. We had 6 adults and 3 children ... and we never got in each other's way! All of us were praising how well this house handled our family. It's a short walk to the uncrowded beach and just a very short drive to literally anything you might need! Simply put, it's a great home in a fabulous location. You should put this property high on your list of possible beach/vacation getaways!!

We so enjoyed our stay in this lovely home. It was perfect for our family which included four young children. The playroom was a "hit"! The children loved it and it gave them a place to "go"! The kitchen was so nicely equipped, in fact we had Thanksgiving dinner and we were not in need of a thing! The back patio was spacious and we so appreciated the beach toys and all the beach towels! We can't wait to return! This home certainly exceeded any of our expectations!

Beautiful, quiet property great for families with kids.

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and close to a lot of stuff including Legoland. The layout of the house is great and there is plenty of room for children to run-around and not get hurt. The converted garage is great if you have little ones. The plush carpet upstairs was really nice as well as the giant bath tub in the master bath. We would definitely stay here again next time we come down to Carlsbad. Thanks Jeanne!!

We stayed at Jeanne Mc Cabe's house 5 days and absoluteley loved it. It was very clean very kids friendly. The kids enjoyed all the beach toys and the walk to the beach was very short. Also the house was on a culdesac and it was very quiet. We would book it again. We took the train to San Diego and the walk to the Train station was about 5 min. Thank you Jeanne for a wonderful place .

Great location, close to beach, clean spacious house.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property in August 2017 as an extended family of 6 adults and 3 children. The house is spacious and very well appointed. It was very clean and well maintained. It provided us everything we could have needed during our stay in Carlsbad. We cooked a couple nights. The kitchen was well stocked. And we used gas grill outside as well. The kids loved spending time in the garage, which is remodeled as a playroom. It was a nice touch having some toys, board games, and a separate TV for the kids to use in the playroom.

We spent a few days at the nearby beach, which was truly a 5-min walk as advertised. And we appreciated the availability of a wagon, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach towels, and beach toys for our use.

The house is also conveniently located in close proximity to Legoland. San Diego Zoo was only about 30-min drive.

Overall, everyone in our group enjoyed our stay. Everyone was comfortable and the house was perfect for our family vacation. The owners were very easy to work with and were very responsive to emails or texts. We would definitely recommend this property!
