Hi Ross,

The house was really GREAT! It was well equipped with everything you could think of, including boogie boards! We had a wonderful vacation and would not hesitate to rent the home for our next San Diego trip! Thanks for everything,

Family Time, for Mom Dads & kids

  • 5 of 5

Great family entertaining home. The guys enjoyed the flat screen while playing pool and us mom's had fun roasting marshmallows in the courtyard fire pit with the kids. Nice to not worry about the teenagers driving, they simply walked to the beach. We also especially enjoyed the ability to walk to the San Diego Coaster for an view trip to Gas Lamp District for dinner and shopping (didn't have to worry about a designated driver) !! The garage was filled with tons of toys, games, foosball but the message table was an added bonus..House was very clean and lots of kitchen cookware. Will be back for the winter holiday.

The Perfect Birthday!!

  • 5 of 5

We come to Carlsbad every year to be at the beach for my son's birthday. The last couple of years we have friends that have joined us since our son is getting older. This house was so much fun for the kids and us, the beach, the fire pit, the pool table, the train close by. They could get up and surf every morning if they wanted to. We walked the beach every morning and evening. The owner went above and beyond to help us to have a great vacation. The house was perfect in every way! It really should be 10 stars!

50th Wedding anniversary

  • 5 of 5

My family of nine convened on Carlsbad to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Ages ranged from 75 to 2 1/2. We all found things to love about the house and the location. First, the owner could not have been more helpful. The listing was completely accurate. We walked to the beach everyday in about 5 minutes...even the toddler! There were all the beach toys you could want and a wagon to get them to the beach. The house was clean and in a quiet location. We hung out around the fire pit every loved making s'mores. We were supplied with plenty of towels and kitchen equipment. The washing machine and dryer got a workout every day! We could all fit around the dining room table with no problem. The garage with all the kid toys was a magnet for the kids. The yard is fenced, but the street is so quiet, we did not worry about the toddler. Grocery stores (especially Ralph's) are only a few minutes away. Costco about ten minutes. We only ate out once, but there are lots of restaurants in Carlsbad. We went to San Diego Zoo and Sea World, both worth the hour drive and cost. LEGOLAND is within ten minutes but we did not like it at all and it was SOOOOO expensive. But the beach is the best! The Coaster train is close as mentioned in the description. The whistle can be loud, but after a couple of days we really didn't notice it very much and it wasn't running early in morning.

All in all it was a wonderful week and we hated to see it end. Thank you to owner, Ross, for helping me over my fear of renting a house unseen. It was a great celebration. If you want family pictures taken, ask Ross about his photographer daughter. She did a lovely job with family pix on the beach!

Amazing Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My week in Carlsbad with our family was one I will never forget. I wanted a place that would fit my family, which is 3 girls, 2 son-in-laws and 4 granddaughters. This large house had plenty of room. It was clean, beautiful, comfortable and perfect. We lived out front around the fire pit. In the afternoon after the beach we would enjoy the breeze and watch our grand babies play. The garage is full of kids toys, it was perfect. We would bbq out there at night and start a fire and end the night with roasting marshmallows! Ross the owner was always available to answer all our questions and help us with anything we needed. Treat yourself to a beautiful week and rent this home! You won't be sorry!

Thanksgiving Week 2012

  • 5 of 5

We were in California for post-Thanksgiving family wedding and spent a very pleasant week in this house. We're foodies, and the kitchen and outdoor grill worked really well for our group of 8. COSTCO and a Ralphs are 3 minutes away so provisioning was convenient and easy. We appreciated the thoughtful equipping of the beach equipment - boogie boards, chairs and a trolley to haul it all there with. The pool table was in pretty much constant use and was a great gathering area when we weren't clustered around the fire pit. PayPal was a bit recalcitrant at returning our deposit promptly, and the owner jumped right into the fray and got it done. All in all, a very positive experience !

Fantastic for small children

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the Carlsbad house. We stayed there for two weeks which gave us time to explore. Carlsbad, in my opinion, is a great location, close enough to all the attractions, Sea World, Old Town, etc, yet gives one a more small town feeling. We enjoyed staying nearby, there are many great restaurants, lots of shopping and great golf courses. The house was pretty close to the beach, the walk was nice, even with a 2 and 4 year old, (the wagon help)! We found toward the end we would drive to the beach at Cardiff, only because we could take our dog with us there.

The garage is full of toys for kids, and our little ones played there for hours! We also enjoyed the front yard barbecue and fire pit. The house has plenty of room, at one time we had 6 adults and 2 small children, plus a dog, and never felt crowded. We also took advantage of the Coastal which runs right behind the house, it's a great way to leave the car at home, and there is a great walking trail back there too.

My only negative comment is, they need a newer and bigger refrigerator, but Ross assured me it's on their list. I would highly recommend this house, especially if you are traveling with small children.
