vacation rental description

Walk to the Beach - 4BD/3BA Home.  Our house rents fast.  We are booked from now until December 1, 2014. Please reserve now for December, 2014 and January, 2015.

Our 4BD beach home is an excellent choice for longer vacations and executive relocations. Our home is located in 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 -- all new furnishings

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.  All bedrooms have cross-ventilation (the MB has windows on all four sides), and all bedrooms have brand 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.

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.

The house has a phone line but we expect people to use their cell phones. You may use the house phone  for a small monthly charge.

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.

traveler reviews for this carlsbad house rental

An Unbeatable Experience

Review submitted: December 13, 2013   Date of arrival: June 1, 2013

My entire family -- including a toddler, 2 teenagers, and 2 adult children -- enjoyed a delightful stay in this pristine property for 2 weeks early last summer. The home is everything it is advertised to be and more -- the pictures do not do justice to the small, private gem that is the back yard. Despite the great diversity of our family, it met all our needs beautifully.

All arrangements were as described and our stay went off without a hitch. We had some (very positive) interaction with both the owners and the caretaker due solely to their determined efforts to quickly correct some minor issues left in the wake of a careless renter that preceded us.

We enjoyed reading and dining on the quiet of the back patio, walking the neighborhood, lounging by the community pool, the proximity to beaches, and the amenities of nearby Carlsbad.

The only thing that was even remotely negative in our experience was also one of the biggest assets of the property -- its meticulous condition. My wife and I were in a state of semi-constant vigilance to make sure the kids didn't spill or spoil. The white chairs in the Family Room were a particular concern.

That said, if the worst thing you encounter in a rental is that it's just too nice, you've landed in a good spot. All-in-all this was an unbeatable experience and I couldn't recommend it more highly.

Owners response: Thanks very much for this wonderful review. It is a great pleasure to hear that our home lives up to our description of it. Thanks again!

Terrific home away from home

Review submitted: July 9, 2012   Date of arrival: May 26, 2012

This home is exactly as described with a place for everything and everything in its place. The owners' attention to detail, complete with two comprehensive instruction manuals (one for general information, one for appliances) left no possible question unanswered and also provided helpful recommendations about the neighboring area. In addition, the owners were available directly and always very responsive (via email in my case). There is a property manager for the site but I never had cause to contact him. The owner’s housekeeper comes once mid-stay, then again at the end. Cleaning cost is additional to rent so the tidier you are, the better.
This gated community is wonderfully maintained. Children freely run and bike around the neighborhood and the mostly “Resident only” traffic makes it a somewhat safer prospect for them to do so. We spent much of our vacation walking a few doors down to enjoy either the playground at the park or swim in the pool. The home’s proximity to beach, Legoland, Outlet mall shopping, Ralphs grocery store, Coaster train and freeway is extremely convenient. Despite being so close, we hardly noticed any traffic noise from neither train nor freeway because of the home’s location.
Our party of 4 adults and 4 kids resided quite comfortably due largely to the fact that there were several “sitting areas” in and around the home. Aside from the living room, the enormous Master bedroom had its own lounge area with access to outdoor balcony seating. Seating was also provided at the front porch, the back patio and kids played in the gated front courtyard when home, allowing everyone their own space. We really enjoyed the home and had a wonderful stay there.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, tourists without a car

Owners response: Thanks for this very nice review. We appreciate hearing from our guests and you all were the perfect guests. Please come back!
