Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I, our 3 children, and two grandparents stayed in this beautiful house for a week in August! The house had everything we could ask for. Susan was quick to respond to texts and very helpful as we learned our way around Carlsbad and the surrounding area. The kids loved playing ping-pong and darts in the garage and of course using the X-box and Wii. We all loved hanging out on the incredible deck, relaxing in the Jacuzzi, sitting around the fire pit at night and eating dinner outside with seating to accommodate our entire group and then some. As a matter of fact, we have friends that live in the area and we loved the deck area so much, that we kept inviting them over to hang with us! We enjoyed staying at the house so much, that we could have spent most of our time there and been perfectly happy. But that’s not why we were vacationing in San Diego. We came to explore and explore we did. The location was perfect for our needs as well, just 10 minutes from Legoland, which we visited twice, about 30 minutes or so from the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, about 30 minutes to La Jolla Cove, where you can swim with or just watch the 100’s of seals swimming in the ocean or relaxing on the beach and rocks! Less than 30 minutes to the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, where you can do amazing hikes on the bluffs overlooking the ocean and the beach. Let’s not forget the beaches. Lots of different beaches located close by. Our favorite was Moonlight state beach. Susan provides everything you need to enjoy your day at the beach, from Tommy Bahama beach chairs, that you can wear on your back like a back pack, enough boogie boards for our whole family, beach towels and sand toys. There’s even a wetsuit in the garage! We definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in the San Diego area and will certainly stay here again, if we ever make it back out to the West Coast! Thanks for the terrific memories!

Beautiful Resort like Home in Carlsbad!

  • 5 of 5
Susan and Ron were extremely accommodating, friendly, and easy going in their interactions with us! When we arrived the house was spotless and looked absolutely fantastic! Each room was thoughtfully prepared and there were extra sheets and blankets in case people got cold. We loved the chess table, the games, the backyard BBQ and giant kitchen for cooking. It was a perfect getaway for Christmas season! Thanks so much Susan and Ron!

This home was perfect for our large family. It is big enough that we could be together, but still had our space to relax. The pictures really don't do the home justice. It is beautiful and we were very comfortable. We were able to enjoy ourselves and the amenities provided helped. Already planning on staying again.

Not a house but a Home

  • 5 of 5
Spent a week at this Home with 6 grandchildren (ages 13 to 7) and mom dad with me, grandma, to round out the madness! The kids and adults had a great time. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out and not be falling over each other. This Home is fully furnished with everything you would ever need. Kitchen has everything needed to cook or grill. Patio is beyond wonderful and everyone enjoyed the jacuzzi. Kids loved the garage setup with games. No complaints at all. Susan is a joy to work with! Would love to stay again at some time!!

Let me just say that the pictures do not do this house justice. The house is beautiful and the patio is simply amazing but the little things like not having to buy condiments, shampoo, paper products or soaps just made this trip a whole lot better. Most places don't even leave cleaning products in the house but this home had everything you need to feel comfortable just like at home. Susan left us a sweet welcome note with a veggie tray and fruit which was a big hit after a long day of travel and waiting for the Carlsbad fires to be put out. The location is perfect and the views are wonderful. We had 7 ladies staying over and we had plenty of room to spread out all those hair products and get ready to enjoy our day.

Thank you again Susan for your hospitality and allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review and recommendation! I am so glad you enjoyed the house and your stay! Hope you come back again sometime!


From the Owner

The house has a very warm and comforting feel, and the back patio fills you with a feeling of 'awe', with the wide open view to the ocean and pine trees close by to give that truly outdoors feel. When I was planning how to encompass this feel, we decided we needed all the fun amenities, so as the jacuzzi, built in BBQ with seating all around, fountain for ambiance and a firepit to cozy up to, and a 400 sf redwood deck above for another even better view! The area is easily accessed just up Alga Rd from the 200 year old road trailed by the Padres called El Camino Real, that now has everything you need, shopping, resturants, golf, then the beaches another mile to the west!! It's fabulous!
