Great for families with little kids
We would love to stay here again. The layout of the property is a little weird but it worked for our purposes (3 adults and 4 kids ages 1, 3, 6 & 8). Nice outdoor areas. Totally walkable to the beach and located near the beach ramp, not the stairs, so it’s way easier with strollers and wagons. I couldn’t figure out the high chair so that was annoying but no big deal. The bathroom located in the main bedroom is nice but the shower is SUPER small so if you are a larger person that may be an issue, but the 2nd bathroom is “normal” size with a tub. The backyard was great... backs up to a hotel but we didn’t have any noise issues and it was nice that the kids could play in a secure area. We didn’t expect a view and we didn’t get one... but this is located in a beautiful little neighborhood and, for Carlsbad, I really don’t think you can beat the location. If we go back I would bring 2 tension-based baby gates to make the front yard a little easier for me with the babies.... otherwise no complaints. A carbon monoxide detector was beeping when we first got there but the property managers were there in a flash to take care of it. One of the fans wasn’t working when we got there but they took care of that too - close enough to the water that I slept great with a blanket - there is no ac but it was still very pleasant. Short walk to Carlsbad Villiage - did it with all the kids multiple times. Overall, loved it!
Perfect family beach spot!
Great property, only a block to the beach. Very clean and well kept. We will definitely stay again!!
This was a great house that was close to town and to the beach. The house was very clean with a large kitchen.
This company was wonderful to work with and in constant communication with me. I would absolutely book with McLain Properties again for future trips.
Close to beach 1 block
1 block to downtown
Very convenient to everything food, restaurants, convenient stores ice cream close to downtown shopping
The negative is the patio could of been washed Down and could of used extra fans a little hot during the day no air conditioning
Fantastic Location, Cozy House
We had a great stay at this rental. The location is phenomenal! Not only proximity to the beach, but the beach access is key! Just around the corner and across the street and you’re right there! So fast and convenient. Essentially everything you could need in the town of Carlsbad is easily within walking distance. As mentioned in several reviews, there is no AC. While we were staying, the highs were mid 70s. At this temperature, we were comfortable. I think it could’ve been a different story if the highs were mid 80s, which is not too common for Carlsbad.
A few things that we enjoyed that was not advertised in the listing: several beach chairs, umbrellas and sand toys are avail to use, there is a fire pit and a few logs were provided, large comfortable blow up mattress is avail in unit, lots of towels are provided.
Things I suggest you bring with you: extra trash bags, your own ground coffee if you plan on having coffee in the unit, fire starter log and extra wood if staying more than one night, extra paper towels, travel size laundry detergent.
Overall, this place really has everything you could want: location, parking, security, convenience, cozy and well appointed home.
Location, location, location!
Great location! They provided lots of towels which was so nice! There are two things that would have made our stay more comfortable. Air conditioning, even though the temperature was in the 70’s the house was a bit stuffy. The Queen sized bed mattress needs to be replaced it sinks down in the middle.
