Enjoyable time but disappointed in certain portions of the unit and management company Seabreeze

  • 2 of 5
As a preface, we do an annual Summer trip and have had good success on VRBO. This is my first non-5-star review but I felt it was fair to share with future users of this facility and dealings with Seabreeze Vacation Rentals.

The Carlsbad unit is a nice big house, 5 couples each had their own room and bathroom. Multiple levels so just enough privacy for a group getaway. Great views and access of the lagoon.

The major issues we faced:
1.) Front door was not working when we arrived. Sort of a big problem. Called Seabreeze at arrival and they said they'd send someone the next day to repair the door handle...no one ever showed. Luckily, we managed to get in through a side door after rummaging through the dark for an hour. Thank goodness for iPhone flashlights!

2.) Propane tank ran out mid-way through our stay with no reserve tank on the premise. To be fair, a gentleman did show up with a fresh tank 2 hours later...but obviously not optimal if you're grilling for a large group.

3.) On the 3rd day of our stay, Seabreeze showed up with a refrigerator repairman to fix one of the fridges that apparently has been acting up (unbeknownst to us prior to our arrival). I understand routine maintenance but generally that shouldn't occur DURING a renter's period of stay, right?

The minor issues but still worth mentioning:
1.) the bar area was unfinished

2.) light in the upstairs bathroom didn't work

3.) hot water didn't work in downstairs bathroom

In all fairness, the property was serviceable for a weekend away. As an avid VRBO user, the house could have been in better condition and I think the management company, Seabreeze, could have been more accommodating with our annual trip.

The Good, the Bad and the Annoying...

  • 3 of 5
Where to begin? GOOD: beautiful home, it was clean upon arrival. Each bedroom has a bathroom, the pool and yard was very nice but pool and hot tub directions were confusing. Near rental area for lagoon activities and supermarket, restaurants, freeway (I-5) BAD: The front door was stuck most of the week so we had to leave side door unlocked in case we were all out and needed to get back in. Ants were everywhere. Kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms. No Air Conditioning. Just ceiling fans or floor fans. Garbage and recycling cans were filled to the top. Monday was garbage day so WE had to push them up the driveway to get picked up. The cleaners should do this once they complete their Saturday cleaning. All cans were covered in ants. Smoke detectors in two bedrooms malfunctioned. Beeping non stop for no reason in the middle of the night. The BBQ was FILTHY!! So much excess grease buildup. We took out the drip pan to wash and scrubbed the grill. A fire could have started when we used it the first night. We had it on low, and all the excess grease went up in flames. Flames could have torched the palm tree that is next to the BBQ on the top deck. It was a fire hazard and should be part of the weekly cleaning. The TV in the living room would suddenly have zero volume. We were told it "does that sometimes" so reset the cable box. That did not work. I fiddled with the TV and it finally worked. The bedroom I stayed in, the remote control only worked on the volume. I had to stand at TV to turn it on and find a channel then get out of bed to turn the TV off. Refrigerator and freezer went out multiple times. This happened daily for two days. Billy (the house manager) brought us coolers and ice for one night to keep our food fresh then the next day he came to look at it and sent a repairman. It needed a new compressor. Instead of fixing it, they ended up renting another fridge since all our food wasn't keeping well. The right side of the kitchen sink would get clogged easily, but after the fridge issue, that was a minor annoyance. The most annoying thing was that there was some sort of service being done to the house EVERYDAY. Gardener came 2 days (unannounced), pool guy came 1 day (unannounced). We had to plan our activities around them. All the home maintenance should be done on the Saturday between check in. House needs a binder to explain the house and maintenance schedule. Stairs are slippery, driveway is super steep. YELP rental company!

Reviewer Comments:
This home met all of our needs and expectations. We were looking for something a little bit different than your typical beach home. We absolutely loved being right on the Carlsbad lagoon while still having ocean views. This home provided everything we could have wanted. The pool and outdoor area was our favorite part and we were able to relax and enjoy the awesome weather all day. There was definitely more than enough space and everything was kept in such good shape and in such great condition. We were impressed with the quality of the home and the quality of the service we received with SeaBreeze. If you are looking for a home for a large family or multiple families vacationing together…this is your house!

Reviewer Comments:
House was clean upon arrival but it was evident that maintenance had slipped and that was disappointing. front door stuck, right side of kitchen sink plugged, refrigerator went out several afternoons (until a temp brought in) and grease build up on gas bbq was dangerous. layout, furniture, outside space were excellent. enjoyed the pool and lagoon tremendously. rental agency was professional but it's a pain to report all things. Some should just be checked each time someone checks in and out. there should be a binder indicating garbage day, pool day and gardener day. We never knew until someone showed up announced. previous renters left garbage cans completely overflowing and as a result there was a ridiculous amounts of ants. seems that should have been sprayed before we got there on saturday afternoon, as it was we had to buy can of raid in order to make it tolerable until garbage pick up.

Reviewer Comments:
This home was absolute paradise for us! We could not have asked for a better experience. From the moment we booked the rental property, to the moment we left the home, we felt very taken care of. The process was simple, which is exactly what we were looking for. This home had an incredible amount of space and amenities. What we really valued was the fact that we were located on the lagoon and just minutes from the beach. We really got the best of both worlds. We were able to enjoy so many different water activities at the lagoon and then lounged around at the beach…it was great! The decor and furnishings in this home were clean and up to date and met all of our needs. We took advantage of the outdoor space all day, everyday. We loved relaxing on the patios overlooking the breathtaking views and had a blast swimming in the pool. We cannot say more great things about this home and cannot wait to come back to this same spot!
