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!

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.

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.

We have had the opportunity and great fortune to stay at some lovely properties
while traveling and would like to say your charming, comfortable, and
beautiful Bella Sirena is a delight and absolute gem.

The beach retreat was even more lovely than captured in the photos. Every detail and amenity was given thought and made our stay home-like from the fully stocked kitchen, gorgeous bathroom decor and amenities, splendid and comfy bedroom to the beach gear. The owners are kind and friendly, answering each query clearly and timely.

The property is immaculate, the grounds inviting, and the location superb. Though recommending this property will probably mean reservations will be more difficult to make, we do so wholeheartedly.

While vacationing, we had the opportunity to visit some terrific spots: Oceanside Pier - lunching at the Tin Fish (delicious), walking the beautiful and serene grounds of the Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Mediation Gardens in Encinitas, marveling at the blooming Flower Gardens in Carlsbad, reliving history at the Leo Carillo Ranch in Carlsbad, enjoying delectable dining at i Trulli in Encinitas, but most of all relishing the beautiful beach just a short walk from the condo.

Thank you for sharing it with us - we truly enjoyed our interlude in Carlsbad!

Excellent Value

Excellent value. The codo was impeccably clean, neatly organized and within walking distance of everything we needed.
Minutes from the beach, park the car in the assigned lot and enjoy the local flavor. A must see is "The Flower Garden" which is less than a five mile drive from the condo.
Be aware trains go by often. The noise did not affect my sleep which it normally does, my adventures had me tired that I did hear them.

Super Cozy, Great Location, Good Price -- what else can you ask for?

  • 5 of 5
A lot of heart went into decorating this condo and it really shows. We had a very comfortable stay with our two daughters (a baby and a toddler), and the well outfitted kitchen and cozy linens were not lost on us. The location is FABULOUS and we enjoyed a very short walk to the beach and delicious food within a few minutes walk. (Try the Armenian Cafe or the Ceviche and Baja-Style Fish tacos at Las Olas-- yum!). The closet full of beach gear was super appreciated and a really classy touch. All-in-all, this is a lovely home away from home.

My only critiques are that the nearby train goes by several times an hour and the whistle woke up my kiddos several times in the middle of the night (boo, says the tired mama!), and in the condo there is poor natural light because the living room and kitchen look out to a wall (for some reason that matters to me enough to mention it, but I would totally stay here again anyway because it is otherwise SO nice).

Stay here -- you'll love it!

Owner's Response: Margaret and I are very please to have so many satisfied guests. This really is a unique place ans our greatest wish is to provide everyone with a safe, comfortable and fun getaway!
In regards to the train, if you sleep with the windows closed, it dramatically minimizes the noise and most people don't really hear it after a few days. The weekenders will probably never get used to it. Regarding the natural light, just to clarify, there is an 8 ft. window in the living room that faces north, and 5 ft. window that faces west. The kitchen is a galley kitchen with a window in the dining room looking west.

Thank you all for such positive remarks. Telling us you would return and stay again is the greatest compliment we could get. We hope to have you all back again someday! Merry Christmas to you all !


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.

There is a certain vibe here that can only be experienced. Come check it out.
