About the Owner

We are a family of 6, living in Oregon. Timothy grew up surfing in San Diego and has dreamed of someday returning to the sun, the beach and to his family. This condo is our first step toward that dream! Although the condo is not large enough for the 6 of us, we have a plan so that we can all enjoy a little time in our paradise!

Perfect Spot!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was sweet, quiet clean and as pictured great location walk to everything! The owners wer exceptional, just fantastic to deal with and extremely responsive and helpful. My holiday was cut short due to some family health and thanks to these owners it added no extra stress. If I ever get back to the area this will be the first place I check to stay!

A wonderful week at the beach

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful time here. This little place really is a light and bright beach retreat. Its clean and comfortable and they have thought of everything you need to have a enjoyable time. We didn't find anything to be lacking. We enjoyed walking to all of the restaurants close by and also using the bar-b-que down in the courtyard. We made several meals in and found that the kitchen had everything we needed. We walked to the beach everyday with our little ones, and also visited Sea World and The Wild Animal Park. We will certainly stay here again!

RELAXING!!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures are true! The moment we walked into the home, it was vacation time! Everything, including the beach is within walking distance. My daughter and her fiance, stayed with us.. and there was plenty of room for everyone. The area has lots of great little cafes and restaurants, cute little shops.. and the beach ! Did I mention the beach? It really is within walking distance, even dripping wet from a wild wave that caught us off guard! What a great Blessing that Timothy and Margaret have chosen to share this with us. (regarding the train, it does go by, but the whistle is subtle and deep, reminded me of my grandpa's home in Vermont.. bring earplugs if your a light sleeper.)

Carlsbad Beach Condo

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I recently stayed in this clean airy beach condo for a week. It's within walking distance to the beach and Carlsbad village which has numerous restaurants, stores, and surfshops. It's centrally located to all of the good surfing breaks within North San Diego. I would definitely recommend staying in this condo.

GREAT VALUE NO SUPRISES

  • 5 of 5
We have been staying in the Carlsbad, Oceanside, San Clemente area for the last 6 years, and this condo is by far the best value. Everything is new and everything works. Close to Carlsbad village, the beach, and the Coaster.

Will repeat.

1st of many future vacations here!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, toddler & I loved this condo! The location is perfect. It's a very short walk to both Carlsbad Village & the beach.
We especially loved the grassy, flower-filled courtyard at the small condo complex. It was a nice, quiet place for our toddler to safely play. An unexpected perk of the condo was all the extra items on hand like beach chairs, a cooler, bucket & shovels, etc.
It wasn't needed this trip, but I appreciated the thoughtfulness of having both the air mattress & sleeper sofa in the condo. I can see this being useful on future trips.
The condo is very close to a commuter rail line, but this was not an issue for us. Our toddler loved seeing & hearing the trains & we were never annoyed by the occasional noise. At night we closed the bedroom windows & weren't woken up by the train. I suppose a very light sleeper could be awoken, but I sure wasn't!
We love this quiet, perfectly located condo & plan on coming back here in the future.

Location

From the Owner

After driving the coastline looking for the ideal spot, we drove into Carlsbad Village, looked at the condo and we just knew it was right!. It has the same small, quaint, safe feel of the community of our Oregon beach house.....unique and artsy, fun blend of old and new, casual, friendly.....with one distinguishing factor: SUN!
