Property Details

Updated: May 21, 2015
Short walk to beach-2bd/2ba and 2bd/1ba homes available

I have 2 Carlsbad beach homes available to rent. The other listing is 235308 which has summer dates still available. They are about 200-300 yards from the beach. It is just a bit over a mile to walk along the beach to the Carlsbad Village where they have many bars, restaurants and surf shops.

There are two homes on one property. The first home is a two bedroom and two bath unit. It has a great living area with a big brick fireplace(the real kind), a big bath tub and a shower in both bathrooms, large rooms and a full kitchen with the utensils needed to make it just like staying in your own home. There is king bed in the master bedroom and a full size bed in the other bedroom. There is a large couch to sleep on as well. It could sleep 5 comfortably.

Both homes have internet throughout, cable tv(including HBO, Cinemax and Showtime), a washer and dryer, linens and an outside shower. There is space for about 4 cars in front of the house.

Since there are two homes on the one lot, there is a common area. It has an outside fire pit with seating, a cement patio set and a separate little shack to sleep in. We call it the surf shack and it is just a room(no plumbing) to sleep in. I rent it for $100 per week as an add on for either unit. The common area is for both units to enjoy so please be courteous to respect the privacy of the other unit. This is not a party property. if you plan to have parties, please go the next property.

Both homes are true beach homes with hardwood floors, an outside shower, beach towels and other beach things. It is VERY dog and kid friendly.

The home is a short walk to the beach. Its a few hundred yards. I went there every day in the summer when I lived there.

Carlsbad is great beach town. It is beautiful and quiet. The weather is spectacular in the summer. Carlsbad Village is a little over a mile from the home. Legoland is few miles away. The San Diego Wild Animal Park is about 20 minutes away in Escondido. Downtown San Diego is about 30 miles away. San Diego has Seaworld, the world famous San Diego Zoo, Petco Park(home of the Padres), Torrey Pines Golf Course and all of the great restaurants and bars downtown has to offer. I have another listing downtown(vrbo #308442) if you would like to stay downtown for a few days.

The home is next to the train tracks. There are two types of trains. The first is the San Diego Coaster. It runs 10 times or so during the day. It is a commuter train and goes by in 2 seconds. It is not loud at all unless the north bound blows the horn right when its going by the house. It only runs during the day. The second are the freight trains. They are long and heavy. They are not loud, but are heavy. They come by two times or so per day. Sometimes they come by in the middle of the night, but that is rare. I lived in both houses for five years and they rarely disrupted my sleep, but I want to make all residents aware because if you are an extremely light sleeper or sleep during the day, it may be a problem for you. The address is 393 Date, Carlsbad, CA

Accomodating Beach House

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beach house. It was in close proximity to the ocean and you could walk in to town along the oceanfront. Great area to bike around also. Although it is beside the railroad tracks (which is blocked by a solid fence and bamboo trees) the train noise did not seem to bother us after the first day or two. We enjoyed taking the train in to San Diego a number of times..easy, inexpensive and quick.
We had our dog with us and the backyard was completely enclosed with lots of room to romp. There is a great off leash dog park at the ocean in Del Mar which was a short drive away.
The house itself had a lovely, quiet sitting area in the front and also in the back area (which is shared with the renters in the 2nd property which is on the large lot). The home was clean and well equipped with the exception of the carpets in the bedrooms which are heavily stained and look to be in need of replacement.
Ample parking on the street in front of the house.
The owner of the property was very responsive to our needs and followed up on any questions within several hours. This was during the inquiry /rental process and once we arrived.
We look forward to returning and will not hesitate to recommend the place to friends and family. Very good value..great location!

Location, location, location, but...

  • 3 of 5
We stayed in the front house for a week. We travelled up and down the I-5 freeway visiting the usual sites between LA and San Diego. We found this place conveniently located for quick access to the beach, supermarkets, movies and the freeway. The house itself had cable and many of the basics but our biggest issue was cleanliness. It seemed the housekeeper did targeted cleaning...mostly the bathrooms and kitchens but not so much the bedroom or living room ( e.g. couch had a dried food spot, visible dust caked on the ceiling fans within arms reach, dirty sock in the bed sheets). That said, the owner was pleasant to deal with and because we didn't spend much time at the house we felt it served its purpose at a reasonable rate.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the feedback. Cleaning is something that we are always battling and I just hired a new girl because the last one didn't work out. I own a hotel and take the cleanliness very seriously. I would really appreciate it if you could contact me via email and let me know what exactly the issues were so i can go over them with her. Thanks for the feedback. Todd

Loved the beach house perfect spot in Carlsbad! Love how its was really close to Legoland and loved the walk to the beach very close and good view.and excellent area.the only down side was it looked like the carpets needed to be shampooed in the. rooms.definitely the smaller room the most! And the vents to the air-conditioning were very dusty as well with the cielling fans. Other then that we loved it! And whould definitely come back!! Thank u todd!

Great stay

  • 4 of 5
Great house for our family of 6. We, the parents slept on the living room couch. Enjoyed the common living area outside. The train seemed to be more frequent than we expected but overall was a great place to stay. The house was at the end of a dead end and nice walkable distance to the beach.
