Recent Carlsbad reviews
Spacious, convenient, private condo
"This is our second time renting this condo, and we would definitely come again. There is space for everyone, and it is very accommodating to those traveling little ones. There are baby gates at the top of the stairs, toys, a highchair, beach toys, and 2 pack and plays... which means less baby/kid "stuff" I have to travel with! The garage parking is super convenient, although the beach and downtown is a nice, short walk! This place is updated and well maintained. We wanted a nice, relaxing vacation in Carlsbad, and this place helped us achieve that!"

"Can't beat this location for its convenience to Carlsbad and the surrounding seaside communities, and the view from the deck will captivate for hours. All rooms clean, well appointed with comfortable beds, and plenty of room throughout the unit. The kitchen could use a few sharp knives and a larger cutting board, but otherwise functional for those who enjoy cooking. We found the owner very responsive and helpful. Most definitely our "go to" spot when we visit Carlsbad."

Cozy and Comfortable Cottage with Everything We Needed (Absolutely Perfect)
"We wanted some place close to the shore, but not on the beach and it's resulting crowds. We're foodies, so we wanted a decent kitchen as well.
This was to be a low-key Christmas get away, so we also wanted comfort for watching the obligatory holiday movies. Add to our requirements a 13-year old Australian Shepherd and it isn't easy to find what we were looking for. However the moment we saw the pictures of the place we were sold.
It's off the main house, with its own fenced in courtyard with lots of greenery and a small table & chairs for sitting out on nice afternoons. Living room area is more than enough for two and could handle up to four comfortably. Decent size flat screen TV too.
Small, but very workable kitchen, full size gas stove with oven and a full-size refrigerator, is what made it perfect for us. We love to cook and did so for breakfast and dinner every day.
It's less than an city block to "The Village", which is the old downtown area of Carlsbad. Very quaint with lots of shops and restaurants. A 1/4 past that and you're at the beach.
You really can't beat this property for charm, serenity and comfort. However what made it extra special for us were Deanna and Craig. They were the perfect hosts. Rarely saw them (they're not watching you), but were always available if we needed them. Additionally, knowing we were foodies they pulled out the coffee table and put in a dinning table capable of seating 4-6. How nice was that? It's those little things that made our stay so great.
Any if you stay here, or anywhere in Carlsbad for that matter, you MUST stop by their daughter's bakery "Taste and Sea". We picked up a Sacher torte for dessert one night and it was incredible.
We're trying to figure out when we can get back over there because we loved it so much!"

"You can't get any better prime real estate than actually being across the street from the beach. This property is a cute home that feels "homey" and comfortable as soon as you walk in. Experiencing the view of the ocean every morning, seeing the sunrise and sunset from both the living room and literally being a few steps from the beach was wonderful. You don't get to experience this type of view from Northern VA!
This is our first vacation rental experience and Pam was great from the beginning. Very responsive over the phone and email, instructions were clear and she was so easy going.
We can't wait to return!"
