About Russell Bennett
I live here in wonderful Carlsbad Village with my wife and children, we love being able to walk to dinner, listen to live music, ride our bikes around and enjoy the beach. I couldn't imagine a better place to experience life as a family.
Russell Bennett purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Russell Bennett chose Carlsbad Village
I purchased this property from a friend who had plans to develop it into condos, but loved the uniqueness of this amazing cottage compound and decided to bring the charm back. After fixing one after another up and many people stopping by to say how much they loved the property, I decided that sharing it was what I wanted to do and made them available as Vacation Rental.... Villagio Carlsbad Cottages. 7 individual cottages with private patios. Stay in one or multiple family can stay next to each other to be together and yet have their own space.

Great location to enjoy all of Carlsbad
Moonlight Cottage was the perfect cozy cottage to enjoy our family trip to Carlsbad. The location was perfect to walk to the beach, restaurants and shops. We were also able to get to the zoo, Legoland and other day trips with ease. We were not bothered by the train at all. Moonlight Cottage had all of the amenities we needed, but could have a little more attention to detail in updating/repairing the furnishings - certainly nothing major and we would stay here again. We are already planning our next trip!
Quaint and Comfortable
The cottage is very clean and well kept. It isn't very big, but perfect for a small family. The room with the bunk bed has two full size beds, as opposed to your typical twin bunk beds, so it provides a little extra comfort to older kids. We had an issue with the lightening in the bathroom and we also needed more toilet paper during our stay and they were both handled right away. The owners were very responsive via text, which made communication easy and quick. Yes, you can hear the train, but each room has a fan and I guess with all the activities we were doing during the day we really weren't bothered much by it. You are also just a short walk from the beach and the cottage provides beach chairs, toys, and boogie boards. They really have thought of everything to make your travels and stay easier. We will definitely look to stay here again.
Great Family Vacation Destination
I travelled to Carlsbad with my parents, and 11 month old son for an impromptu family get-away. The accommodations were perfect for our purpose. Just the right amount of room for our group, and everything we needed for meal prep was available. The instructions and communications with the owner were clear, and everything was ready for us when we arrived. I had read other reviewers concerns about the nearby train and the lack of AC, but neither of these things were a bother. The train can definitely be heard from the cottages, but it didn't wake my sleeping baby once. We actually found its proximity quite handy as we took the Coaster from Carlsbad directly to Old Town in San Diego. Although we rented a vehicle, I think you could get by without one and just use the Coaster to access transit in San Diego, and travel to-from the airport. The location of the cottage was PERFECT. Just a 5 minute walk to the beach, and steps from tons of restaurants and cafe's. There is also a small grocery store a short walk away for getting supplies, and many larger ones within a 5 minute drive. Over all we loved our stay here and plan to return with a bigger group and rent multiple cottages in the future.
Close to everything! Walk to the beach, dinner, sunset, coffee, breakfast, train station and so much more. The only problems I had was sleeping with the sound of the train all night long and we had a skunk visit us in the middle of the night. The internet is a bit slow and can not function smoothly with more than one device or TV hooked to it. But, overall- this was a great value and suited our last minute trip to the coast perfectly. Thank you! Hope to be back again soon. The court yard is super cute and welcoming.
Would go back in an instant.
Good location. Nice place.
I traveled out to Carlsbad with 3 other people for a friend's wedding. The cottage was definitely in a prime location in Carlsbad. It was a short 5 minute walk to the beach and a short walk to downtown. Laurie the property manager was very nice and answered all of our questions promptly. The cottages were small but it had everything we needed. It fit the four of us fine all sleeping separately. The cottages all had their own individual look and they looked great. It was like stepping into a different world once you were in the gate. I would definitely consider staying again.
