About the property

5 bd, 4 bath, Nearly 3900 sq. ft., Sleeps up to 12; Walk to beach

Enjoy endless summer in this spacious, spectacularly beautiful custom home located in a quiet upscale beachfront community within an easy, two-block safe walk to one of Carlsbad’s best beaches, North Ponto Beach.

Fully licensed and permitted by the City of Carlsbad, this home has everything you, your family and your friends need to relax in a home away from home or enjoy all the area has to offer. Walk two blocks to the check out the waves at the beach; sip your morning coffee lounging in the morning sun on a secluded front gated patio, or on the main floor, gather with family and friends in the spacious dining room with a unique ceiling designed to replicate a yacht, or gather for after-dinner drinks as you relax around a custom fire-pit designed to sparkle like the stars above. Hang out in the family room adjacent to the kitchen with gas fireplace roaring or watch the 55" HD TV. If cooking at home appeals, you can prepare your meals in a gourmet kitchen featuring a 6-burner Thermidor range, new Samsung 4-door refrigerator, and Calphalon cookware – or enjoy Carlsbad’s lovely weather while grilling outside on the Char-Broil grill. Or if you prefer eating out, you can choose any one of the many nearby restaurants based on menus and recommendations in the binder we’ve prepared for you. A full office, with French doors to an outside patio, offers quiet space if work should call.

Easy to get find – by car or train (with the Coaster station in walking distance) – this home provides space to gather or spread out. With three stories, including a unique full basement, this nearly 3900 sq. foot, 5 bedroom home with three full bathrooms and two half baths has a place for up to 12 people to sleep in their own premium beds. Four bedrooms have HD TVs (40”). The master has a king bed, small balcony and a master bath equipped with two-person indoor jetted tub, large glass shower with two shower heads, and toilet room with a bidet. Each of the other three bedrooms upstairs has a queen bed; one has a walk-out balcony to enjoy the morning sun; another has an en-suite 1/2 bath; the last, a serene setting.

Downstairs, there is fun for kids of all ages. While the little ones play in a space dedicated and furnished for them, the gang can cozy up on the sectional sofa to watch a movie on the 65” HD smart TV in the theater area or challenge each other to a rousing game on the indoor basketball shooting machine or playing Ping-Pong. The fifth bedroom – with two twin beds and a set of bunk beds – and second full bath are downstairs.

Beach gear is stored in the clean two-car garage. Beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, surfboards, sand toys, umbrella – and a wagon to pull the goodies to the beach are all there for your use. After you wash off the sand in a warm outdoor shower, you can toss your towels in to the new Samsung washer and dryer to get ready for another day of fun.

About Jackie O'Shea

We live in Carlsbad with our three children. When we moved here from the east coast five years ago, we felt that we had arrived in paradise. We are very active family and we spend a lot of time at the beach and enjoying the many local activities. This home was purchased by my parents as their winter home so they could enjoy time with their granddaughters as well as the beach weather and lifestyle. We are proud of this home and look forward to sharing it with you.

Jackie O'Shea purchased this house in 2015

Beautiful property, welcoming neighborhood, amazing service!

  • 5 of 5

The service provided from inquiry to stay was top notch. The property manager was responsive, helpful and went above and beyond to make sure our stay was spectacular. The house was spotless when we arrived, beds were comfortable and even the neighbors were friendly and welcoming.

The house had everything we would have needed and we never felt crowded with the 12 adults that stayed here. Everything worked perfectly and the gas fire pit in the front was icing on the cake. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for accommodations for a large group!

Additionally, it's in close proximity to a grocery store and La Jolla but not too close where you experience the congestion. We absolutely loved our stay!

Amazing Carlsbad Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The luxurious and relaxed beach vibe was perfect for our multi-generation family trip. There were games for kids and adults, and incredible area for a family movie, plus plenty of quiet places when needed. The rooms are large and open with a great flow. We used the outside patios every day, front and back. The beach was an easy walk.

Jackie was a terrific host and incredibly easy to work with. We'd stay here again...and again!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home! It was spacious enough for our group of 14. The layout is great for everyone to be together with the bedrooms upstairs and the living areas on the main floor. The kids loved having the play area in the basement. The place was clean and beautifully designed. The location was conveniently off the freeway and under 45 minutes to everything we wanted to do. If we vacation to San Diego again we are definitely staying here again!

Family Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This house is a perfect getaway for a family. We had 11 people and a baby there for several days. The layout is perfect, allowing room for people to spread out, find a corner or gather together. We sat in the gardens, walked the beach and cooked a full holiday meal in the wonderful kitchen. It has everything you'll need, from beach towels to scotch tape. We were delighted watching movies on the enormous TV and playing games in the family room. I'd recommend this house for any group. It's beautifully decorated and thoughtfully equipped.
