Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 7
Only 5 blocks to the beach and even less to restaurants and shops!! Please note minimum stay times in rates.
Near LEGO LAND! We are a 10 minute drive to Lego Land. This charming 1940’s beach cottage in the middle of Carlsbad Village has been completely remodeled. The interior is open and airy with new beach colors and bright white beamed and vaulted ceilings in every room. Skylights and big windows bring in the sun and the cool breezes. At night the cottage becomes cozier and even romantic with subtle upper lighting controlled by dimmers. Hardwood floors, cushy area rugs, crown molding and inspired decor will remind you of your favorite beach home found on the pages of “Coastal Living” magazine.
Park your car when you arrive because you won’t need to drive again till it is time to leave for home. Five blocks to the ocean with great restaurants, shops and even a grocery store within a 2 – 10 minute walk from your front door. The Coaster train is 2 blocks away and can take you to Downtown San Diego in 50 minutes. Carlsbad has been described as the best small town on the beach.
Sleeping is easy with the breeze from the ocean and the comfortable king size pedestal bed in the master bedroom.
The second bedroom has a unique built -in bunk bed with a trundle underneath so that the room sleeps three. And there are two twin size day beds in the living room. The bathroom has been completely modernized with stone tiles, vessel sink and other new fixtures. Modern appliances and a fully equipped kitchen complete with place-mats, hand painted dishes, glassware, pots & pans, etc. make vacation meals a celebration. The living room is relaxing for the whole family with daybeds, chairs, soft area rug, dining table, and eating bar that opens up to the kitchen. Vaulted open ceilings in every room with ceiling fans throughout plus thermostatically controlled exchange fans at each end keep the cottage comfortable. Complete with indoor washer/dryer and two story kids playhouse in the side yard.
The “beach cottage” decor is bright and airy inside and outside there is gas barbeque on the deck for grilling on a beautiful balmy evening. A patio set and umbrella complete the picture. The large front porch with four Adirondack chairs invites you to relax and watch the world pass by, just like in the 40’s. Added to the “no worries” atmosphere is the off-street parking for multiple vehicles. You can watch satellite TV on the flat screen TV’s in the Living Room and Master Bedroom. The living room has a Blu-Ray player with Red Box within walking distance. Complimentary WiFi is included throughout the house, porch and patio areas.
This home is located in a quiet neighborhood. If you are looking for a party location, this is not the place. No pets and no smoking on the property. The house will be very clean when you arrive. We take pride in our cottage. Thanks.
Summer rentals are by the week only. Holidays a five night minimum, other times a three night minimum.

Great little beach cottage
Excellent stay, clean, very family friendly, had everything we needed!!!
Trés agréable séjour / Realy Relaxing stay
Comments for the French visitors: La maison est trés agréable et rien absoluement rien ne manquait depuis les serviettes de plage et passant par des éponges neuves, jouets de plage, parsole, un BBQ... Tout était trés propre et les propriétaires charmants (ils habitent à côté).
Carlsbad est bien situé pour visiter San Diego, Lego land, le zoo ect... et la maison est dans le centre du village ce qui nous a permis d'aller le soir au resto ou de faire qlq courses, à pied. La plage est proche mais un peu loin pour y aller à pied (à moins de ne pas être chargé) - 1 min en voiture et on se gare trés facilement devant la plage.
Les enfants ont adoré la cabane et les lits supperposés.
Perfect stay in Carlsbad
It was a short drive to the beach, to Legoland and an even shorter walk to restaurants and shops.
If we are in the Carlsbad region again, we surely book the place again.

Surfing in Carlsbad and all of San Diego can be very good for experts and there are some great spots here in Carlsbad that are easy and safe for learning. Great beaches for boogie boards, skim boards, just walking with your feet in the surf or kicking back with a book and a Starbucks (only a few blocks away). You can park in your driveway and walk to everything. And you are only minutes from your cottage if you decide to go back for a nap in the middle of the day.
