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 5 minutes walking distance 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 recently furnished it with all new beds, furniture and even art from local Artist Dave Ness. This is not just a vacation rental. We built this home with love and continue to update as needed.

The house has one downstairs bedroom with a king bed and full bath, and three bedrooms upstairs, 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 for cooks with pots, pans, crockpot, blender, coffee maker, toaster and other items. We also include spices and oils for your use. There is a table that seats 8 and a bar table that seats 4, along with a window seat to relax.

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. There is also a crib, pack n play and booster seat for littler ones. We have tailored our home for young children but it is not childproof.

The backyard is fully fenced and private. It includes a gas BBQ, table for 6 and 2 small tables for 2 each. Here you will find the beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, sand toys and a wagon for your use.

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. It’s a relaxing 5 minute walk to the beach. 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.

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!!

This house has everything!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home just a 2 block walk to the beach. We had our 2 children and their families with us and every need was anticipated! There were private bedroom/bathroom areas for each family unit. There were laundry facilities (we had four grandchildren with us). There were booster seats and crib for our 2 year old. And and a giant play room filled with TV, toys and books!! They provided all the things we might need at the beach....chairs, sand toys, boogie boards etc. The location was central to all the things there were to do in the area!

The house was beautiful and had a welcome home feeling. Everything was put together nicely for our stay! The master bedroom was crazy big with an amazing shower. It really is a five minute walk to the beach and the coaster train was also only 5 minutes it was a fun ride into San Diego. The backyard is very nice for BBQs and with a quiet community! We all had a great experience!

Convenient, clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean with plenty of necessities and towels. Nicely decorated and spacious. A very comfortable house for a large group. The master bath is a dream with a two way fireplace and very comfortable bed. Close to beach and the cute Carlsbad village and the train. Great location! We would love to stay again. We also had the pleasure of meeting the owners, what a friendly and pleasant couple.

Amazing House!

  • 5 of 5

This is a winner. Great house surrounded by other beautiful homes and located walking distance to the beach. The house itself was spotless and very comfortable. We cook a lot and found everything we needed to feel at home. I only can't comment on how responsive the owners are because I never needed them! (this is a good thing). There is even a great playroom for kids. A really wonderful stay that we hope to repeat.
