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

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, we 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 and nice atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Pipes Cottage for 8 nights. The group of cottages is a serene oasis in the fun collection of shops and restaurants in Downtown Carlsbad. The cottage was just as described and clean with all the necessary items to enjoy our stay. We had a few issues that were addressed with text messages (note: do not run portable a/c, tv and microwave at the same time or you will need to reset the circuit breaker). We had several days that were well above normal temperature and had to rely on the portable a/c for those days. It did a reasonable job of keeping the main area cooler, but wasn't able to cool the bedrooms very much. We did appreciate the ceiling and other portable fans in the rooms. It was an additional benefit to have the laundry facilities onsite and we appreciated the ability to get things washed easily.

Overall we had a wonderful time and would definitely return again!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at the Cottages. We rented 5 of the 7 cottages for our family and friends. Loved having our own space and still being close to everybody. Being able to cook meals and BBQ was a huge plus. Everybody loved the proximity to the beach and having all beach paraphernalia available. Great area with local shopping and restaurants. We plan on staying here again next year!

Perfect stay in Carlsbad.

  • 5 of 5

Very simple booking process, Russell is only too keen to assist with any questions from the start (not that we had any).My wife and I had 5 days here in April and loved Pipes Cottage. Place was spotless and very comfortable for the two of us. I would agree that some hanging space would be useful but we just used the second bedroom to lay out clothes on the bed. Being English one thing we did miss was a kettle for our morning tea but boiling a pan of water was no real hardship.

We managed to trip the circuit breaker as we had one of the heaters on whilst the toaster was on and could not find the circuit breaker. Emailed owner and had a very quick response to advise us where breaker was.(behind picture in hallway). That was our only issue. Nice sitting area in back are close together but still did not feel on show. The compound is beautifully kept and again was spotless. Nice to have laundry on site.Yes the train track is close and yes the early/late trains blast their horns on the way through Carlsbad but it didn't bother us at all and became part of the experience. The Coaster to San Diego is the best way to travel there.

Short walk to beach and restaurants with plenty of choice, great breakfasts at Naked Cafe 3-4 mins from cottage.

Would we go again? Absolutely.

Perfect for a small family!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two kids (ages 2 and 8 months) and I stayed here for the week. It was perfect! Great location, walking distance to the beach with everything you need for the beach, just across the street from the shops in Carlsbad (with a great farmers market on Wednesdays). This home is in a little secluded complex with 5 or 6 other little homes that has its own porch and backyard. We loved our stay here!

How do you rate a successful vacation? One very important aspect is your vacation accommodations. Ours was perfect! Russell has done an outstanding job renovation his 7 unit Villagio Cottages. Our unit #6 was extremely comfortable and well furnished with everything we needed for our 10 day stay. The Cottages are centrally located which means we didn't need to drive our car every time we wanted to go somewhere. We were able to walk to Carlsbad Village and the beach. He provides everything you need for a day on the sand including a wagon to schlep your beach gear. We hopped on the Coaster a few times and traveled to San Diego's Little Italy for yummy meals. Our stay was perfect and we will return again! Thank you Russell for your attention to detail. We LOVED our stay!
