About the Owner

We live in Carlsbad with our four children approximately one mile away. During the summer months our family spends almost every weekend at the beach. There's something for everyone - playing in the sand, jumping in the waves, boogie boarding and surfing, or just relaxing in the sun. We believe one of the greatest joys in life is quality time with family. Family vacations are special. We set up this home with the hope that our guests will create life long memories and have a wonderful, relaxing vacation with family and friends. Thank you for considering our house for your vacation!

This house is perfect. It is close to the beach. The master has a very comfortable bed and is first class. The kids play room was perfect for my 7, 5, and 3 year old boys. You can walk to the beach. While here it was a perfect distance from Legoland, San Diego Zoo, and Sea World. The kitchen is set up great. There is a fire pit that we roasted marshmallows at every night, and it quickly became the highlight of my boys' vacation. The mater bathroom is very relaxing. My wife took a bath every night and loved the tub. There was also all the beach items you would need already provided to you. The owners were more than kind. The owners were flexible with our check in time which took a lot of stress off the trip. The owners also made sure everything was stocked so we could do laundry, etc. Back to the playroom, there were toys, legos, tv with movies, PS2 with games, and other items my boys loved. It was a perfect place to send my children to when we just needed a quiet minute or if they woke up early and we still wanted to sleep in. The appliances are first class and we used almost all of it. There is a long dining room table that easily sits six. You can wake up every morning and open the windows and smell the ocean. I will be staying here again with my family. Perfect house, in the perfect location. Thanks again.

Wonderful property for family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful family vacation due to the amenities provided by the owners. The playroom, beach toys, fire pit and backyard provided lots of activities to entertain the children. The proximity to family activities such as Legoland, Scripts Aquarium and beach just added to the enjoyment. Great property.

Perfect San Diego Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
If you're wanting to visit San Diego with your family, Carlsbad is the perfect spot to stay. It was within 30 minutes of downtown, 5 minutes from Legoland, and we could relax with some down time at the beach. The house was immaculate and has everything you could ask for in a vacation home, especially if you have young children. There is everything you need for the beach (wagon, chairs, boogie boards, etc). The owners are so thoughtful and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again our next visit to Southern California!

HAVEN for families with young kids!

  • 5 of 5
If you have young, or older kids for that matter, look no further than this house! It is immaculate, warm and very spacious for a large family! The first sight of the playroom had my 2 year olds eyes pop out of her head; it is a kids dream fully stocked with a playhouse, puzzles, Legos, arts and crafts etc. each morning we would have breakfast on the back patio and then load up the wagon they provide and walked the kids down to the beach to play in the sand! We stayed with our two kids, my sister and her boyfriend as well as my parents and there was plenty of space. The kitchen is an open airy spacious dream and the dining room fit twelve when we had family over one night! The house is perfectly situated between Carlsbad and Encinitas which are both an easy bike ride away. We can't wait to stay here again next year and every year after, such a wonderful home owned by two of the kindest most helpful owners! Do yourself a favor and book it!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5
This was our first time renting a beach house for our family vacation. The property didn't feel like a "beach" house - it was warm and inviting. The property was perfect for our grandchildren. The owners really put some thought into the layout - converting their garage into a play room for the children was awesome. The backyard firepit made for a fun time at night. Making s'mores was an added bonus-compliments of the owners. The walk to the beach was a little bit of a walk for the young grandkids but the owners provided a large wagon for us to haul our stuff down to the beach so we used that to haul the little ones when they got tired. The location is close to Legoland, Sea World and San Diego Zoo so when we wanted out of the sun we had other options near by. It was a great vacation and we plan to do it again!!! The owners are friendly and very accomodating. Great experience!!

Absolutely AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
My little family stayed here for our first vacation since our daughter was born over 2 years ago! We wanted privacy and maximum comfort and this gorgeous home did not disappoint.

This was our first time renting a home for a vacation and I have to say, Kim, made the process and experience fantastic. I don't think we will ever stay in a hotel room again, especially not when staying in the San Diego area!

The house is beautifully appointed with fresh and vibrant decor and colors that gave the atmosphere a comfortable and beachy vibe, yet still remained tasteful and elegant. We felt welcomed and at home from the moment we walked in the front doors. Kim's taste is impeccable and reflects in each and every detail throughout the entire home.

No detail was left unthought of, everything you need for a fun and comfortable stay is provided. You can cook your own meals in the fully loaded kitchen, fire up the grill for a backyard BBQ or head out for a meal - they provide you with maps, driving directions, and suggestions on where to go!

The playroom was the biggest selling point since we were traveling with a rambunctious tot, it was often hard to get her out of there to head our for a day of exploring, but it was wonderful to come "home" and keep her entertained. The playroom is full of toys for kids of all ages, has a TV and DVD player with a collection of family-freindly movies. There is also arts and craft supplies, books and a large playhouse that my daughter loved.

And the location CAN NOT BE BEAT!!! You are a 5 minute walk from the beach, a 5 minute drive from Legoland, a short drive from the hearts of Carlsbad with lots of cute shops and restaurants, you can also get to the other cute coastal towns, like Oceanside and Encinidas in mere minutes and all the excitement of San Diego is a short half hour drive away.

I honestly can't say enough wonderful things about this home. It was perfect in every way. Perfect for kids, perfect for families, perfect for adults. PERFECT!

Thank you Kim! You outdid yourself with this vacation rental.
