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.

Charming and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Nice little property close to town and beach. The trains were close by, but the noise didn't bother us. Very clean and well equipped, the only thing was there was sand on the bathroom floor which was a little annoying, probably just got missed. Great stay!

A week at the beach and legoland

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with our 4 kids at the 2 bed cottage for a week to see Legoland and the beach. We have mixed feelings about our stay. Here are the pros:

Great location to Legoland and quick walk to the beach.

Really nice landscaping and furnishings

Friendly owners


Close to train. You will hear it.

No A/C . We would open windows but then you would either hear the train or close by pizza restaurant.

Lots of visitors on grounds. There is a gate to the cottages but we found lots of people knew the codes and would walk through. While visiting the Catlsbad visitor center the employee told us the code to the gate!

The grounds/landscaping are beautiful.....however the gardener came at 8am 2x on our stay with his leaf blower. Not so great when you want to sleep or have young kids who are woken too early.

We liked the location and the charm as well as furnishings but the lack of a/c, loud train, and early gardener make it 4 stars.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented 2 cottages next to each other for Mother's Day weekend.

We had our daughter, her husband and our 2 grand kids in the adjoining cottage.

We stayed in the Beacon's cottage and it was so nice. The grand kids loved the swing in the backyard and we loved sitting outside in the comfortable furniture.

Everything about the cottages was perfect for a relaxing weekend away.

The property was well kept and very nice.

Beautiful cottage with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the week in Beacon's Beach cottage, visiting family. It was perfect in every way. Convenient to restaurants and grocery stores. The walk to the beach is about 5 min, and the cottage has a little folding wagon that we used to take the provided beach toys and beach towels. On the way back, the kids were tired, so the folding wagon actually carried them too!

Everything in the cottage is provided and high quality - no threadbare linens or towels here. The kitchen utensils, dishes, etc. were all name brands. The mini village was quiet in the evenings, and the laundry room was great to have access to, and also had board games and toys for the kids (legos, puzzles, etc).

We're already planning to come back, especially with such gracious hosts! Stay here, you won't regret it!

We stayed at Beacons Cottage for a few days while visiting my daughter in Carlsbad. It was a comfortable, charming cottage. The only thing missing was a closet to hang a few items. We loved the outdoor space! It was a great location to shops and restaurants and a nice walk to the beach. We also liked the secure feeling of the cottages having gates on each side with easy access.
