About Jeff or Kim Todd

We live in Carlsbad with our four children approximately one mile away. During the summer months our family spends almost every weekend at the beach. There's something for everyone - playing in the sand, jumping in the waves, boogie boarding and surfing, or just relaxing in the sun. We believe one of the greatest joys in life is quality time with family. Family vacations are special. We set up this home with the hope that our guests will create life long memories and have a wonderful, relaxing vacation with family and friends. Thank you for considering our house for your vacation!

Jeff or Kim Todd purchased this house in 2010

What makes this house unique

The house is located in a quiet neighborhood close to the beach. It has hard floors throughout and all mattresses and pillows are encased for cleanliness. It is beautifully decorated, well maintained and without "owner clutter."

We love it! It's the best!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at other beach rental properties- nothing compared. It is beautiful and well maintained. It has everything you need. We just enjoyed our 4th visit and will never stay any place else. We've recommended to friends and they love it. It's not worth taking a chance on any other rental in Carlsbad/Sandiegp area.

You will be very happy with this rental.

  • 5 of 5

The house is fabulous with a great beach is very near. Everything we needed was provided, including beach towels, boogie boards, umbrellas, chairs, and sand toys. Our hosts were gracious and quickly responded to all of our requests, but almost everything was easily found and answered without having to bother them.

Parking was no problem for our three cars. There was an outdoor heated shower to wash off sand with the beach and keep the house clean. The kitchen had a full complement of kitchenware, supplies, and even a few condiments. They provided a parking permit for California state parks which we used at Torrey Pines Park and South Ponto Beach. You will be very happy with this rental.

One word........AMAZING!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What an enjoyable week for the entire family! This home was perfect for us which included three children under the age of 4. The house is perfect; pristine and gorgeous. After a day at the beach, the fire pit gave the adults the time we needed to chill. Jeff and Kim are responsive and hospitable. We are looking forward to next year!!!

You really can't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

It feels like you came right home. This place is gorgeous, the owners are very accommodating, the playroom is a kid's heaven, and the place is well-equipt with anything you'd need (beach towels, sand toys, boogie boards, coolers, plenty of dishes, cooking utinsils, etc). We loved the fire pit and grill. The walk to the beach is short and easy. This place is VERY family friendly and has everything from a high chair, crib, baby gate, even a potty seat! The house was super clean and we were happy to have nice soaps and even bath salts provided. The beds and linens were very nice. We have NO complaints and will for sure recommend this home to all our friends and will be back!

Great, kid-friendly weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, immaculate home, perfect for a getaway with kids. Our toddler daughter loved the playroom and the crib. The place is well-stocked with items necessary for travel with toddlers. We were fortunate that this home was available during our travel dates, and would gladly stay here again next time we are in the area. The one minor negative was that there were times when we could hear sounds from the train whose tracks are visible from within the neighborhood. Fortunately, it did not disturb our sleep, perhaps because of the hours we kept and the train schedule. We assume, though, that given the proximity of the train to the beach, most lodging options close to the beach here are likely to have similar issues.

Beautiful house, great for kids

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 nights at the house. The garage has been converted to an awesome toy room and the beach is less than a 10 min walk away. The house has everything you could need (including a crib, baby gate and high chair) and is nice and roomy. We had 2 families (4 adults and 4 kids) and it worked out perfectly. Kim and Jeff are super responsive. I would definitely recommend to anyone, but especially families with small kids.
