RUN DOWN amenities, BEWARE of ridiculous check out policy, LOUD upstairs neighbors

  • 1 of 5

The Location was great: two blocks from the beach and a short drive to downtown. The decor was cute/fine, bed in the smaller room was comfortable. The property management group was responsive to fix the broken hot tub. CONS: 1. PLAN TO SPEND YOUR BEACH TIME CLEANING... check out requires that you load and run the dishwasher leaving absolutely nothing in the sink or charged $25.00. You must wash and refold all of the beach towels or be charged $3.00/towel (so no beach on the day you plan to check out, + shared laundry facility with 1 washer for 3 units- so plan extra time to wash and dry clothes before check out); you must take out the trash; the blankets must be folded and returned to the closets; the throw pillows on the couch returned to the correct position. You might as well pay yourself the cleaning fee! 2. AMENITIES WERE RUN DOWN: If you plan on cooking the knives were so dull I had to saw through our food. The pans were badly scratched and the non-stick layer was peeling; the walls have huge patches (6-12 inches) of missing paint around the table and couch; the couch was so awful! I sank right down to the frame (I actually sat on pillows from the bedroom while we relaxed after putting our son to sleep); the bed in the master was uncomfortable and soft; the shower was tricky to turn off as the faucet would not tighten, and water pressure extremely powerful (too hurtful for our child); the garage door opener didn't work. 3. THE UPSTAIRS NEIGHBORS: It sounded like a heard of elephants were jumping overhead. The pounding went on for a few hours but died down around 9pm. I was outside looking at the full moon and observed a family leaving which means there were a few extra kids upstairs jumping around than may be typical. But BEWARE the walls are paper thin + every footstep was heard. Our child was woken up several times by the loud pounding (we live in a city apart + are used to noise). Lastly: THE HOT TUB DID NOT HEAT on the first night. I called on Saturday and it was fixed that afternoon- kudos for being responsive! And this might be a coincidence, but both nights that we were in the hot tub (one night it was a cold tub), trying to enjoy the stars/full moon, the upstairs neighbor turned on the bathroom light directly above the hot tub. The light remained on the entire hour we were outside so we could not see the stars. SUMMATION: Bring your own towels, Eat Out, Stay out all day, don't misplace a single item and you will be fine!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your honest review. You have brought a number of items to our attention, which we are addressing asap. We have already taken the following steps: - We have replaced the pots and pans in the kitchen, as well as the dull knives. - We have contacted the house manager to touch up the paint on the walls. - We have ordered a new sleepers sofa and a new mattress for the master bedroom. We are also working on replacing the entire shower. We haven't had any complaints about the living room sofa before, but we will definitely re-evaluate the comfort of the furniture in light of your experience. We are glad that we were able to help you with the hot tub. The hot tub uses a lot of power and occasionally the outlet gets tripped and needs to be re-set, so we're glad to be of service. For future guests, we do list all of our check-out policies in our rental agreement, and you are welcome to ask about our check-out policies before booking. We try to do our best to keep our properties clean by offering excellent housekeeping service, but also keep cleaning fees as low as we can. Leaving a short list of check-out responsibilities helps with that. Thank you again for your honest feedback. We hope to welcome you back for a much better Beachside stay in the future.

Great Price for Quality and location

Great Price for quality and location

Wonderful area! So many dining and other amenities close by (either walking or driving). Safe; liked neighborhood feel. Proximity to a non-crowded beach was fantastic! Of course, Legoland around the corner was a big hit!

Overall very thoughtfully stocked. Loved the beach chairs and umbrella- life-savers! Having a dishwasher was wonderful. The Direct TV was great for watching Olympics!

Beachside Vacation Rentals were extremely easy to deal with, timely, great communication.

This was our first VRBO experience and it was wonderful -thank you so much! We hope to be back next year.

Walking distance to the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Very Clean, comfortable, location, and available parking

Area was quiet, and we were walking distance to the beach, even with toddlers!

I also missed all of the emails from Beachside, since I did not check my email until I got home... I was really on vacation! I wish I noticed the check out requirements in the book, sorry if we missed anything...

Beachside was very pleasant, quick, and not a single hiccup, besides getting the emails late...

Thank you for our fabulous getaway!

Great Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay and the management company. The management company was very professional, answered all of our questions and the process was easy. It was clean and the kitchen was well stocked. We loved walking to the beach and village to shop and eat. We also visited Legoland which was less than 5 minutes away. This property is located in a nice area of town and we will come back again soon....we hope! :)

This condo is located on a quiet residential street surrounded by beach homes, just a block from Carlsbad State Beach. Carlsbad State Beach is a large, spacious beach, a great place for swimming, running, beach walking, and enjoying the sun.

Carlsbad is a beautiful beach town with cute shops, restaurants a large outlet mall, flower fields and of course Legoland. Carlsbad is less touristy than some other Southern California beach towns, and so tends to be a little bit less crowded, even in the high season. From Carlsbad you can venture north into Orange County, or south down to visit San Diego. For extra adventures, check out the San Diego Zoo!
