traveler reviews for this carlsbad house rental

Wonderful home away from home!

Review submitted: August 31, 2014   Date of arrival: August 4, 2014

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!

Review submitted: August 17, 2014   Date of arrival: December 18, 2013

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!

Review submitted: June 15, 2014   Date of arrival: April 28, 2014

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.

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers

Owners response: Thank you Staci! I am so happy to hear you will be returning! And I guess I'll have to get some better photos done too...thanks for the "extra" about the house! Susan
