Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd year we've stayed at least 2 weeks, and it will not be the last.

The condo is exactly as advertised and the front patio is a huge plus.

We know every inch of Carlsbad, since we lived there for 10 years. Everything is a short walking distance.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay in Pam's condo. We find it comfortable and pleasant. It's within walking distance to the beach, restaurants, shops, and Coaster station. The condo is well-equipped with nice beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, and sand toys. We enjoyed mornings and evenings relaxing on the front patio. We'll definitely stay here again!

Our stay at #7

  • 4 of 5

Loved your condo but the family's that were staying in the Gage house did not control their children from screaming, shouting, throwing rocks until at least 10 pm or later, and also early in the am. They had absolutely no respect for the property.

Our favorite condo and location

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautifully decorated on a beach theme. The kitchen is well supplied and the king bed is comfortable.

The real key is the location with a great beach being a short walk away.

Relaxing Carlsbad

  • 4 of 5

Our visit to the property was wonderful! The location is in the heart of Carlsbad Village, everything is within walking distance. The condo complex is well maintained and cozy. The condo was comfortable and a nice home away from home. We will be coming back!

Comfortable & cozy condo with terrific location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO experience, and it couldn't have been better. The listing description and pictures are spot on -- no surprises. The decor with its bright colors and imaginative accent pieces conveys a comfortable beach retreat atmosphere. Kitchen: It's well stocked and would easily allow for cooking if that is your thing while on a relaxing vacation. Electronics: We were impressed with having two TVs with all the channels one could want, and the wi-fi service is a very nice touch. The king bed in the master is quite comfortable. There are two nicely furnished private patios. The front one in particular is a great place to relax and enjoy Carlsbad's terrific weather. Location, location, location! Park your car and forget it. Everything -- beach, restaurants, shops, train station (ride the Coaster train to downtown San Diego) -- is an easy stroll from the condo. If you are interested in cars and are visiting on the third Thursday of the month, head to Encinitas for their free car show and live entertainment. Fun time! I would be remiss not to give kudos to our host Pam. She is unbelievably responsive. Each of my inquiries (remember I was a VRBO newbie) were thoroughly answered within a couple of hours without fail. If you are looking for a comfortable vacation place with a great price/value relationship -- look no further. You won't find a better choice in Carlsbad.

From the Owner

I grew up being able to walk to the beach and to shopping. I loved it! I live in Carlsbad, but have to drive to the beach. So when an opportunity came up to buy a property that was very close to the beach and to the Village in Carlsbad I took it.

From the Owner

Properties don't become available in this development very often. What I love about this unit is that it is on the ground floor, has two private enclosed patios, and is in a sunny and quiet location in the complex.
