Walk to the Beach - 4BD/3BA home, centrally air-conditioned. Our house rents fast. Please reserve now for 2015.
Our 4BD beach home is an excellent choice for longer vacations and executive relocations. Our home is located in Waters End, a gated community in Carlsbad, CA near the beach. The community is west of I-5, reachable from the Poinsettia Lane exit. The Poinsettia Coaster Train Station is a 5 minute walk from our house -- a side gate from the community leads directly to the parking lot. The Coaster gets you to downtown San Diego in minutes, and connects with Amtrak. We are also ten minutes from Palomar Airport with direct service to LAX and plenty of space for private planes.
South Carlsbad beach is a short walk, and our community has very large pool and spa. The pool, spa, and playground are about 6 houses down the street from our house -- but you can't hear any pool noise from our house. There is a very good shopping center across Poinsettia Lane about a block down Encinas Avenue, with a large Ralph's, Starbucks, Ames Hardware, Rite Aide, and numerous restaurants and small specialty markets and shops. All of this is a short walk.
Description of the House
The house has 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths. One bedroom and full bath is on the first floor and three bedrooms and two full baths are on the second floor. The house is centrally air-conditioned. All bedrooms have cross-ventilation (the MB has windows on all four sides), and all bedrooms have new ceiling fans. The master suite has a king bed, huge walk-in closet, and bath with both shower stall and soaking tub and double sinks. The master suite also has a sitting area with a comfortable couch and chair and 32 inch flat-screen TV. A balcony looks over the back patio and has a nice bench and comfortable cushions.
The second bedroom upstairs has a queen bed. The third bedroom upstairs has two twin beds and a Pac 'n' Play portable crib. The hall bathroom has a tub and shower. Also upstairs is a laundry room with a high-efficiency washer and dryer. There is also a small office upstairs in the hall alcove (see pictures). The house is immaculate -- see reviews on this site from past guests. As one reviewer wrote, 'This rental property has given us our best rental experience. As I told the owner, this home is so well appointed, clean and comfortable that we were surprised that it would be rented out to the public. Everything in the home is in perfect condition, including the kitchen with all of the dishes, cooking supplies, etc.'
On the first floor, the bedroom has a desk and can be used as an office. It also has a queen bed that is very high-tech. It is a Frontgate bed that comes out of the closet, and when you plug it in, it unfolds to a complete queen bed on a platform -- it's incredibly comfortable, and nothing like a traditional 'rollaway'. There is a full bath with shower next to the first floor bedroom. Even the bathrooms in our house have granite counter-tops.
As you can see from the pictures, the kitchen is ultra modern with stainless steel appliances, granite counter-tops, and is fully equipped. The fireplace in the living room is only decorative until we find and install a gas burner and glass doors -- the previous owners never got around to that.
The living room has a new 55' flat screen TV, blu-ray DVD player, couches and two comfortable chairs.
There is a two car garage, and outside the kitchen in the play area is a built-in gas barbeque with built-in gas line -- so no canisters to worry about.
No cats, dogs or other pets please. We do not rent to groups of unattached people, weddings, parties, reunions, or anyone else who might disturb this family- and kid-friendly neighborhood. Our homeowner's association assesses severe fines for any disturbances -- we would pass along any such fines to renters if that occurred, although we expect that it will not. There is a limit of two cars per rental. Overnight visitors may park on the street, but only for a few days, due to homeowner association policies.
Why did we buy this house?
We bought this house and furnished it in June and July of 2011 because we could not find a suitable rental in the San Diego area that a short walk to the beach. We found that the beach rentals we experienced in this area left a lot to be desired and were over-priced. So, we created the ideal beach vacation house for ourselves and our family, and for you and your family. We have a local property manager who is available to tenants if anything goes wrong -- although the house is so perfect and well-maintained that we can't imagine that happening. We also have a housekeeper who provides cleaning services. Check out the pictures below -- it truly is a fabulous home.
Jim and Margaret manage their own business near Santa Fe, NM and visit their home in Carlsbad as often as they can. Our home in Carlsbad is full of art we have collected in Santa Fe and around the world in China, Europe, and North America.
Wow!!! Your home is perfect!! It's beautiful Jim!! The pictures don't do it justice!!! We love it!!!
“This is a very special place. We have rented homes all over the world and have never found a rental house that is equal to ours in style, space, technology, and location -- especially not in Southern California! See our reviews for insights from previous guests.”
