About John DiGiacomo
Lisa and I have lived in Carlsbad for 10 years. We enjoy being close to the village and beach. It's nice to park your car and be free to walk and ride bikes anywhere you need to go. You may see us cruising the coast in our 49 Ford, beach combing or surfing along the Carlsbad coast.
John DiGiacomo purchased this House in 2015

A beautiful beach home!
We really enjoyed this beautiful beach home! With the lovely patios in front and back, and the great windows, it seemed much larger and was very comfortable for our family of 5, and the guests we had over for dinner. The home is beautifully decorated and well maintained, particularly the incredible succulent garden. The walk to the beach or town for food and shopping was quick and easy, so we hardly had to drive at all. We loved it and hope to come again!
Thank you for the very nice review. We so happy you enjoyed your stay and hope to have you back again soon!
We have 7 year old twin boys and they had plenty of room to roam/run in the front and the back. The front gate provided that extra comfort in allowing the boys to roam. It is a breeze to walk to and from the beach and into the village. John was amazing and prompt at responding to all of my emails! Hot outdoor shower was a great feature. You literally just need to bring a couple of outfits because everything is there! Neighbors are close but we hardly ever heard them. This is a wonderful property and we will be returning!
Thanks, Diana, for that awesome review! We are so happy that you felt at home and had such a great experience. We welcome your next visit!
500 steps to the beach same distance to downtown Carlsbad.
We enjoyed our stay in this 2 bedroom 1 and half beach house. Having an enclosed front and backyard kept our kids amused and self entertained while we cooked or relaxed. Dinner on the patio with a BarBQ after a long day on the beach on the huge 10 person outside dinning set was easy especially with outside hanging lights. Having the outside hot shower to rinse off after the beach was amazing. Temperatures dipped into the 60s at night and 70's during the day, a respite for us from the AZ summers. So leaving the windows open all day and night while we where home was simple and comfortable. A bonus you can hear the waves from the living room and dinning room. The house has so much style looking at all the original details and pictures I found something new everyday. Boogie boards and beach going equipment in garage helped our ventures to beach. We loved the train ride to San Diego 1hr ride and a few minute walk to USS Midway. The train director said we reached speeds of 85mph. Having our own secure parking spots behind rolling solid metal gate was reassuring but neighbors and pedestrians where all friendly. The huge fridge and gas range sure did let us save some money with cooking our own breakfasts and some dinners. Staters grocery store was probably the cheapest and well stocked out of a few stores we tried and only a few miles away. Getting to Legoland was simple and quick along with Strawberry picking across from the Legoland entrance. The kids loved the bunk beds and occasionally fell asleep from exhaustion on the comfy sectional. The only downside was the cable it only had 7 or 8 channels available out of 3000. Maybe a HD antenna for free local HD stations would be a better choice. It did force us to take advantage of the many well equipped board games. All in all we are planning our next trip next year. I won't miss the Wednesday farmers market in downtown Carlsbad the next go around. Thank you so much for opening up your home to us. We truly enjoyed our week long stay.
Beautiful property and as close as you can be to the beach without actually facing the ocean.
Good size for 4 of us. Perfect for walking downtown Carlsbad and to the beach. Loved the seating areas front and back. Hot shower outside was great returning from the beach. Very comfortable house. Only minor issues were: Stove igniter continued to click/flash on all burners when cooking on 1 burner, there was a lot of sand on and around the beach toys/chairs/boogie boards before we used them, the bunk bed is kind of short, needed a password to watch anything considered for mature audiences on Netflix. We would definitely stay again and the minor issues mentioned were not significant enough to impact our vacation. Loved it and will likely stay again.
Thank you for the review of our home and we appreciate the things you mentioned. We checked out the KitchenAid and all burners are electronically igniting and working. The upper twin mattress is standard length to the lower full mattress on the bunk bed and we will be sure to pay close attention to the amount of sand on the beach toys in the garage. We are so glad you enjoyed staying in our little corner of Carlsbad and welcome you back for you next trip!
Perfect beach house vacation
We loved staying at John's beach house, just a block from the beach and a few blocks from the shops and restaurants of the village. The house is cute and comfortable, but where it really excels is the huge and private outdoor space, from which you can feel the ocean breeze and hear the surf. Amazing outdoor kitchen and large table for dining. Neighbors are close but respect quiet time. Really appreciated having access to bikes and beach accessories. Overall, a great value and a great stay.
Thank you, Jeanne, for your awesome review and we are so happy that you had a great time! We hope you and your family stay with us again in the future.
This house was perfect for my family and I. It has everything you need to enjoy Carlsbad.
My family and I had a wonderful time in Carlsbad while staying in this house. The location is close to the beach entrance, shops and restaurants. It has everything you need in a home away from home. I would highly recommend this house to families wanting to stay in Carlsbad.
Thank you, Amy, for that great review! We are so glad you stayed and hope you will be back soon!
