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.

Why Russell Bennett chose Carlsbad

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 I 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.

Perfect location, beautiful property, amazing hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the Grandview Cottages, we can't wait until we can make a return trip.

This home was the perfect size of our family of four (we have 2 toddlers), and it was in such a great location. The beach was blocks away, (having a wagon with all beach gear was so great!), great shops around the corner, and we had a blast just walking around town. the Farmers Market on Wednesday night was so much fun.

It was so cool being able to walk around the block to get to our favorite breakfast place Cafe Topes. That place was so awesome, we didn't even think to try anywhere else for the rest of the week.

The home was well equipped with everything you could need, it was SUPER clean, the outdoor areas were so well maintained, it had really cool outdoor spaces.

Laurie was awesome to work with, she was there to meet us when we arrived and there to say bye as we were loading up the luggage. Having such a great laundry area was so awesome.

Over all I think what stood out so much (outside of how nice the rental was), was how well thought out all the amenities of the rental were. Everything you could need and want which was awesome! And the curved TV in the living area was such a cool touch.

The home was a quick 40 minutes to San Diego which made it an easy drive in to hit the zoo, Balboa park museums, and be back to Carlsbad for dinner in downtown or the home.

Thanks everyone for a great stay we hope to be back soon!

Quaint cute cottage - great location!

  • 4 of 5

My family (two little boys 1 and 3) stayed here for 5 days for the Carlsbad 5000. It was a perfect location to the start/finish lines, to restaurants, the beach, and the playground/park at the senior center. They have a great wagon to bring to the beach, portable lounge chairs, and plenty of sand pails and shovels to play with. We enjoyed the patio area every night. The landscaping was beautiful and we enjoyed the smell of fresh flowers blooming. Also great was the laundry room. Overall a great place to stay and I would definitely stay here again!

There are a couple of steps within the cottage to be aware of if you have kids or someone that doesn't handle steps well. I may recommend a couple community baby gates for guests with kids. We were able to borrow one that was extremely helpful in keeping the kids off the stairs since they couldn't open that but could open doorknobs.

If I could improve one thing - the internet was spotty at best. We had our phones but it would have been nice to save some of our data.

Great location! Quaint setting.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was comfortable, clean and well furnished, but it's location is the best part. The beach is only about a 10-minute walk away and closer still are scores of shops, restaurants and bars to keep you entertained. Craft beer is my passion (and profession) so I was delighted to discover over 150 taps (lots of great local beer) within a 5-minute walk from the door (stumbling distance).

Noise Note: Amtrak and Coaster trains frequently pass though the Carlsbad train station (1-1/2 blocks away) but typically didn't blow their horns until after 7:00 am, and we rarely heard trains or horns during our sleep. The trains didn't bother us. A design oddity is that this small space is multi-level. Both bedrooms are a step or two below the level of the rest of the dwelling. This can be a concern when when trying to navigate in the middle of the night while making your way to the head and back.

We really enjoyed the patio, which was nicely furnished and the bougainvillea-covering kept us private from the happenings of the people "on the other side" (sidewalk). Aside from never figuring out how to change the TV channel, the cottage was great. We would stay here again.
