vacation rental description

Walk to the Beach - 4BD/3BA Home.  Our house rents fast.  We are booked from now until November 21, 2014. Please reserve now for December, 2014, January, 2015, and May 2015 at our reduced rate. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's weeks are available at special rates. Please inquire.

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 -- 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

Home away from Home

Review submitted: June 27, 2014   Date of arrival: May 31, 2014

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. All of the towels, bedding and other supplies appear to be new and in A-1 condition.
The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. It is a gated community with no through traffic, a large clean pool, Jacuzzi and playground. Everything is kept up and in excellent shape.
Across from the development are restaurants and shopping. This is an upscale neighborhood. The commuter train is a 5 minute walk and the beaches are close by.
All in all we had a great time and I would recommend this home rental for anyone visiting the San Diego area..

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thanks, John. We are always happy to hear that our home lives up to our guests' expectations. We strive for complete accuracy in the listing and complete satisfaction from our guests. It's a wonderful home in a great location. Please come back!

Ideal working vacation!

Review submitted: June 15, 2014   Date of arrival: May 5, 2014

My ski team recently conducted a physical training camp in the San Diego area. The team's coaching staff, 6 men, rented this property for 3 1/2 weeks. This property could not have worked out any better! We put in long hard days that included workouts at nearby Poinsettia Park, daily cycling on the Pacific Coast Highway, a daily commute into a gym in San Diego, some workouts on the beach and some surfing on our days off. Having a large, tidy, well organized garage was key as we do travel with a considerable amount of sports equipment including road bikes. The open kitchen was ample and ideal for 6 adults on differing schedules to cook for ourselves as we did take most of our meals in the house. Everyone in our group had a comfortable bed and more than ample personal space. Normally, with all our gear and personal affects, our group would be tripping over each other in one property, but not here. The house is well-designed for everyone to have space both for their belongings and to get work done. The commute into the city was easy. Access to the beaches was easy. The house is beautiful. It's well decorated with beautiful artwork and extremely comfortable. Exceptionally clean and tidy, It seemed like we were the first guests to have stayed there! This house could not have been any better for us! We will certainly be looking to reserve it again in the future!

Review submitted: April 23, 2014   Date of arrival: January 16, 2014

Our family of 6 (my in-laws, myself and my husband, our three year old and our baby) enjoyed a wonderful vacation in this beautiful home in January 2014. The house does not feel like a "rental", but rather is very comfortably furnished and tastefully decorated with great artwork. It is a very large home, but still has a "beach house" type of feel to it which we loved for our California vacation! The kitchen is gorgeous and well equipped, there is a dining table that can accommodate 8 people, and we enjoyed hanging out in the cozy and very comfortable family room area. The backyard is small, but charming with gorgeous trees. There was a resident hummingbird in one of backyard trees on our visit that kept our three year old interested for hours! The bathrooms are worth mentioning, they are all gorgeous, clean and luxurious feeling. All of the bedrooms are very comfortable, and the master is beautiful, with all the windows around it and the big trees you'll feel like you're vacationing in a fancy treehouse! The only thing I would change about the house was the white fabric furniture in the living room and master bedroom sitting area…slightly stressful with small children around!
The home's proximity to the pool and playground area was fantastic for our family, and the pool area is incredible. The convenience of a shopping centre (grocery/liquor store, drugstore, restaurants, Starbucks) being a 10 minute walk or 2 minute car ride away was wonderful.
We found Carlsbad to be a perfect home base for our Southern California vacation. The home itself is less than 10 minutes away from Carlsbad Village (which is charming and has a great farmer's market Wednesday afternoons!) several beaches, Legoland, and the premium shopping outlets. It is an easy half hour drive into San Diego to check out the sites around there, and only an hour on the freeway if you want to head up to Anaheim for the Disneyland experience.
Jim and Margaret were friendly, efficient and professional to rent from. We would certainly recommend their home!

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

Owners response: Thanks very much for your wonderful review. Please come back! You all were terrific guests and we appreciate the way that you treated our home. Regarding the cushions on some of the furniture: the cushion covers are all cotton and we find it easy to throw them into the washer and dry them upstairs on the bannister -- good as new!
