About the property

Condo (2 Bedroom, 2 Bath)

Our spectacular beach property is 'On The Sand,' offering its own private beach while providing white water views and soothing ocean sounds (you hear the surf in every room). It has a bright beachy decor and a quiet location - conveniently located halfway between the Village in Carlsbad and the Pier in Oceanside (we walk on the sand to both).

This completely renovated home is fully furnished (we relax here frequently) and offers sweeping ocean views from La Jolla to Catalina. You can watch the dolphins play or the whales spout from the living room, deck, or beach.

At night, visit one of the area's fine restaurants or simply dine on the beach while watching the beautiful sun set over the Pacific. During the day, relax on the beach or enjoy the numerous activities that are unique to this fabulous destination.


This listing is for UNIT B.

UNIT B (sleeps 1 to 6): Has 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms and has a California king size bed in the master bedroom, a full size on the bottom and twin on top (bunk bed) in the guest bedroom, and a queen size sofa sleeper in the living room.

There are 3 different units. Unit A (2 Bd, 1 Ba - sleeps 6), Unit B (2 Bd, 2 Ba - sleeps 6), and Unit C (1 Bd, 1 Ba - sleeps 4). Unit A is VRBO #882233, Unit C is VRBO #253036, and all 3 units are VRBO #882235.

The units are vertically arranged with Unit A at the street level, Unit B in the middle, and Unit C at the sand level. All 3 units face the ocean, have oceanfront decks, and share the private beach.

Our beach house is 'well cared for' since we personally (as well as our family) stay in all 3 units, and we do have wireless broadband internet access. Over the years, we have had 100s of delighted beach loving guests.

About Kelley

We had long desired to have a beachfront home and when we found this gem we were thrilled. We selected this area because it is right in the middle of a beautiful wide sandy beach that stretches for 3 miles from the village of Carlsbad to the pier in Oceanside. We also liked the fact that the house was located in a less dense area with mostly beach homes. Most of all we were excited by the private beach and the fact that we didn’t have to cross a street or get in a car to enjoy the ocean!

Kelley purchased this condo in 2000

Great beach property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a cousin, girl getaway here. It was awesome. The unit was clean and pleasant. We had everything we needed. It was cool during our stay so we didn't go down to the water, but could stand in the yard and watch the waves break right below us. They view was fantastic. Would deffinately stay here again.

We went into Carlsbad Village and had a couple meals. One day we took an Uber to the train station and rode the Coaster to San Diego, it was a great way to travel there. No traffic and no parking.

We enjoyed every minute of our trip to this beach property.

Beautiful view, cozy beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay, and I cant wait to stay again! My husband and I love the location of this rental, and the owners are easy to work with and quick to respond to anything you need. We were on the second floor (Unit B) this time, and while the view from Unit A is awesome, the view from Unit B is just as good! The apartment was spotless at check in, and is well stocked with kitchen utensils, cookware, etc., and also had plenty of towels, extra blankets and sheets. The wifi worked perfectly, as did the t.v. In addition to the wonderful sunsets, we were able to watch dolphins and sea lions from our balcony, it was beautiful. Last year we watched whales swim by. The sound of the surf will lull you to sleep. Although this is an older home, it has everything you need and its in a safe location. It is a great value for the money.

Value rental. Very nice owners

  • 4 of 5

The Good:

On the ocean. We loved having our window open at night and going to sleep with the waves crashing. That was awesome.

Unit has adequate space for a small family. It was situated between a lower and upper unit. It has two bathrooms one of which in the kids room has a bath tub.

The private sand backyard was the "beach" and was a nice place to let the kids play.

The owners are very nice. In today's world most times you don't have an actual conversation with the owners-it's mainly through email, but in talking with owners, you could tell they really try to provide a comfortable place for people and families to stay at. This was a reason for a higher review as we had issues with the cleaning crew that the owners resolved.

Washer and Dryer provide on premises for laundry needs.

The Cons:

The outdoor shower is in a bad position. After playing in the sand or being at the beach, you want to rinse off. The outdoor shower was right in the sand. So you would shower off and then walk in the sand and get more sand on you. It would be nice if they would place a rubber mat or wooden mat to help keep you clean after rinsing off.

The journey down to the beach is quite treacherous. There are huge boulders, but the "steps" are not uniform and do not go all the way to the beach. This is really difficult with kids and a hazard. It would be nice to place cement steps all the way down.

The actual beach was only accessible during low tide. Perhaps this was just how it was on our stay. High tide and no sand. Low tide and sand was there, but stayed wet from the water. Only dry sand was in the backyard.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time! We just put in concrete steps to the beach. So, the access to the beach is now very easy. The sand does tend to come and go with the tides & swells. There are actually bricks under the outdoor shower and a path to the house steps that have become covered with sand. So, we'll uncover.

Amazing stay. The beach is right out your back door. If you want a beach experience this is it. The place was perfect and the rocks going down to the beach were awesome

Wonderful location, great ocean sounds, clean house with all the basics!

  • 5 of 5

Used VRBO for the first time and Kelley made it a great experience answering all questions timely. Could not have asked for a more relaxing and peaceful getaway right AT the beach. The house was clean and had all the basics you would need. Plenty of extra blankets pillows and towels. It was roomy and we did not feel like we were on top of eachother. We didn't need to leave the house for anything. There were utensils, plates, Bounty towels, coffee filters you name it....A hair dryer would have been great though (or maybe I didn't see it) but it was all good, I let my wild curls take over. I look forward to staying here again. IT WAS AWESOME! Also, the pictures as advertised on VRBO were true to life. If you don't like hearing footsteps above you though, rent out the uppermost unit. Unit B was where we stayed, right at the middle, and it offered the best view of the ocean. Our fellow house guests were also very friendly and quiet. I would rent again with Kelley, Unit B in a heartbeat.

-A satisfied customer!

I loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with two toddlers and it just couldn’t have been more perfect. The house had everything we needed and when I had a question Kelly got right back to me super helpful and kind.

We truly loved the rustic stairs leading to the beach!

Would defiantly like to come back again.
