Two thumbs up

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay while in Carlsbad. Walking distance to everything. Amazing deck which gives you plenty of outdoor space. Highly recommend.

Homey surroundings great deck perfect location and a great owner.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay. This units location is perfect for walking to the beach and restaurants in town. When in Carlsbad you want to live outside as much as possible. The spacious deck and ocean view provide a comfortable out door experience. We had a small concern with the unit upon arrival that was immediately addressed by

the owner.

We hope to return next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review and your patience when the water heater failed to provide hot water upon arrival. I strongly recommend Bradford White Water Heaters because their warranty saved the day. The Owner

Great property

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Great beach. It has everything the ad said it did. There is construction next door but we knew about that prior and wasn't too much of a problem. Everything is a little dated but was fine for a week. All in all our family enjoyed it.

Awesome view!

  • 4 of 5

The view on the balcony is amazing! We spent every night out there listening to the ocean waves. Our stay was wonderful at Dennis' home. He answered all my questions and even brought over a crockpot for us to borrow. That made our trip! The kitchen has odds and ends but enough for us to make dinners and breakfast each day. We had enough beach towels and other linens and the beds were very comfortable. The beach items are loved but they worked for our stay. My suggestion is to get a wagon from Costco as it makes traveling the short distance to the beach even easier. We definitely recommend this place and look forward to returning. Oh, and since there is still construction going on next door it didn't bother us much at all. The loud work didn't start until about 8 but we were already up and about. It also wasn't very loud inside anyhow.

Great house in close proximity to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our stay and had a blast. We are a family with 3 kids, ages 8,7,and 2. The place had everything we needed including games and cards for kids. Kitchen was well stocked and we cooked most of our meals there, grilling on the patio. In the early morning, one can hear the waves from the deck.

There is construction going on next door, but we didn't find it to be a problem at all. Our kids are early risers, so we were up long before the noise started each day and out of the house during the day most days. Our two year old had no problem napping through what noise their was.

There is not a washer/dryer in this unit like in most other vacation rentals we have stayed at. There is a coin one available downstairs. This wasn't a problem for us, just something different from most other places we have stayed.

Overall, we had a great stay and want to book another trip to come with friends and no kids. The place has a great set-up for that and I can just imagine the fun we can have on the deck. Thanks Dennis and Jean for a great stay and the wine you left!!!

The perfect spot in Carlsbad!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Dennis and Jean's place by the beach! The home was warm and inviting just like the hosts! Half a block to the beach, and walking distance to everything Carlsbad has to offer. the best part was the second floor patio overlooking the ocean! We spent many mornings watching the dolphins play just off the coast and the sunsets were pretty awesome too! Dennis was always quick to answer any questions we had. It really felt like home! Thanks for an amazing vacation! We hope to come back again!
