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!

We just returned from a wonderful week at this condo! It is just as described and had everything one needed for a perfect vacation: nicely decorated, comfy, clean, well equipped, accommodating owner, great location......on and on! Carlsbad is a very nice town with so many restaurants, shops, and beaches to can walk to so many of them! One day we rode The Coaster into San Diego and enjoyed the day there.....,that train is a short walk from the condo as are sunset watching beaches and ice cream shops! All in all, this condo is a real gem......we hope to return!

Great find!

  • 5 of 5
This review is easy, I loved the condo! I have rented several places in Carlsbad, and by far, this was the cutest and cleanest place we have rented!
The decor is my personal favorite, beach theme, it was in the village, within walking distance of shopping and many fun and nice places to dine, or just have drinks and relax.
A variety store is right across the street for that mandatory coffee, or milk run!
The owner is pleasant and very accomadating, I am very grateful to have found this secret hide away in the village! I give it a 10 out of 10 score!

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!

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.)

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!

This place is in the heart of the best beach community in San Diego County. This condo is in a small complex and feels like a home, rather than a large corporate condo complex. The Village has numerous restaurants, boutique shops, amazing beaches, super friendly people and is centrally located to many activities North and South. There is a certain vibe here that can only be experienced. Come check it out.
