Perfect Family Vacation in Carlsbad Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5

Location was perfect distance to beaches at walking distance. Home provided full kitchen items (including coffee grounds), towels and beach toys. Property was clean with very nice smelling towels and linens. The owner's were always available and provided excellent customer service. They helped make our trip more enjoyable by offering discounted tickets.

The area was perfect for late night walks to enjoy the great out doors and eating out.

My family and I will enjoying future trips here again and again.

Great accommodations for our first family trip to the beach. Walking to the beach was so amazing! The condo was everything we hoped for and more. The well stocked kitchen gelled us prepare tasty food without dining out every meal. The beds were prefect. And the soothing ocean sounds lulled us to sleep each night. I highly recommend it for your next beach vacation.

The apartment is only 3 houses up from Tamarack Beach, so it was very convenient. Major and Jessica provided all sorts of beach toys, equipment and chairs. There were plenty of towels and washer and drier available for lots of use from us. The apartment was comfortable and clean. The kitchen is filled with enough dishes, pots and pans. They were very accommodating to all of our needs. Grocery and other stores are very near by and the village with restaurants and sights very near, too. Unfortunately, we all had the flu for 5 out of 7 days there, but we made the most of everything and hoped we didn't pass our germs on to too many others.

Great beach house!!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much! Location was excellent...a VERY short walk to the beach and an easy walk to the shops and restaurants in downtown. The only "shortcoming" was the lack of a few basic necessities.....hair dryer, dish soap, laundry detergent, etc. But....the lack of these items would not keep us from renting here again. We hope to be back here again next year!

Carlsbad Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5

Jessica and her husband Major are great owners and were very accommodating to my and my daughters staying. Major and Jessica were fast to respond if I had any questions.

This charming townhouse is split bedroom floor plan, bedrooms and one bathroom are on the second floor. Good size family room and with kitchen downstairs. One of the bedrooms has a balcony where I was able to see ocean view. The beach was 3 minutes walk distance and umbrellas, beach towels and chairs where at the house for us to use. Downtown of Carlsbad was 15 minutes walking distance.

Couple negative things was an issue with parking and internet at the property. I was parking on the street or I had an option to park in front of the owners two garages in a very tight area. And internet was working the best only on the first floor, however I believe internet situation will be fixed by now.

Overall I gave to this property from 5 Stars 4 Stars and will be planning to comeback next year.
