Central A/C private home, 4 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Sleeps 8, Gated comm'y w/pool/spa
- English, German
We live near Minneapolis, MN and love to come to our home in Carlsbad, CA .We manage two businesses. We have furnished our Carlsbad home with lots of art from Santa Fe, NM, where we used to live. Besides the beach and the cleanliness and modern feel to our home, the art is the main thing that our guests talk to us about. This is not furnished with second-hand furniture or electronics. It is not grandmother's old furniture. Everything is new and modern. Read the reviews to see for yourself.
Jim purchased this House in 2011
Why Jim chose Carlsbad
We have rented in this area ourselves but have not been able to find a truly beautiful house that meets our needs at a reasonable price. We want to be near the beaches, bike paths, restaurants, and shopping that Carlsbad and San Diego have in abundance -- not to mention the best weather in the world. So, we bought this house. Now you can enjoy it, too! This is our second home and is definitely not a 'rental unit.' Read our reviews! We refurbished it in 2017.
What makes this House unique
We love to swim, bike, and go to the beach. Our favorite health club is close-by. We enjoy walking, and our neighborhood has sidewalks everywhere -- unlike so much of California! We have great restaurants, the San Diego Zoo, incredible surfing, and the best weather in the world all year round! This home is very convenient to just about everything. The beach is an 8 to 10 minute walk. Major supermarket is 5 minute walk. Costco is around the corner -- a 5 minute drive. 24hr Fitness is 10 minute drive. Restaurants are 5 minute walk. Commuter train station to San Diego (also connects to Amtrak) is a 5 minute walk. Our community pool and spa are on our street, 6 doors away, but far enough so there is never any noise from it. Walking trails all around the community. It is a great location, quiet and peaceful, but very convenient. You will not find yourself driving very much, even to the store! We always remark about how little driving we do when we are at our Carlsbad home -- it's so convenient to everything. The same house in our community (but not as nicely furnished) is listed on this site for $7500 per month. Read our reviews!

Impeccably Clean Modern Large Home
My boyfriend and I stayed here in Jim’s home for a whole month and wish we could have stayed longer!! The house was so clean, and comfy, and fully-stocked for a easy smooth stay. Jim was so responsive and kind in our communications. The neighborhood was so nice and safe, only 10 min walk from the beach. Great location! Jim’s housekeeper came by halfway through our stay and cleaned the home, she was so kind and professional and did a great job. Overall we loved staying in this house and would definitely come back!
Thanks for this very nice review. We are very glad you enjoyed our home. You both took great care of our house and we really appreciate that! Please come back again.
My family had a wonderful time with this rental. We loved the neighborhood (was the best Halloween experience our kids ever had). The house was immaculate and met every one of our needs. In fact, their cleaning person was so terrific that we hired her ourselves. You cannot go wrong renting this home. We highly recommend!!!!
Thanks for this great review. You and your family were terrific guests and we are happy that you all have moved to Carlsbad.
Great house, wonderful surroundings and nice and helpful owners!
We absolutely loved our stay in this beautiful house! Such a good house, everything you need is there for you! And the surroundings are wonderful! We just love Waters end and this area close to the beach and the coastline! Waters End have the best pool area with heated pools all year around and a great playground for kids.
We appreciate the handsome cleaning lady who cleaned the house with the absolute best result!
Margaret and Jim are the best renters and they do everything for your convenience and comfort! Everything worked out so smooth!
We would love to come back and can definitely recommend this property!
Thanks to our guests from Sweden for this very nice review! We enjoyed having you and your family as our guests and hope that you all return next year. Thanks again.
Great house and wonderful owners!
We have rented the house for 3 months and we were really satisfied with everything. The house was nice , clean, well maintained and when we needed something the owners ( Jim and Margaret) were always helpful and really so wonderful!
They also had a very nice cleaning lady who came every 2 weeks and always did a wonderful job . We are a family of 4 - 2 kids ( 3 and 8 years old) and we all loved it there . The community was friendly and very safe - with big playground and nice pool and jacuzzi. My son loved to run around the neighborhood with his scooter and my daughter adored the playground. It was close to everything- the grocery store, restaurant and to the beach as well - It took as 10 minutes to get there with the stroller and beach stuff so it was really close. We will definitely recommend this property and we all are looking forward to renting it again:)
Thanks for everything Jim and Margaret!
Thank you very much! You were wonderful guests. Our whole neighborhood told us how much they loved having you stay in our home. We look forward to your return later this year. Thanks again.
Great summer beach place
We have been visiting the San Diego area for over 40 years. We spent all of June at this rental as well as two years ago. This is much nicer than the typical San Diego beach rental in that it is a house as comfortable and clean as your own, probably more so. We hope to return next year.
We were walking distance to the beach as well as the commuter train station (Poinsettia Station) if you want to spend the day in downtown San Diego or Los Angeles and not hassle with the traffic.
The house is fully equipped with a great, open kitchen and living area. This is a gated community with a rec area which includes a large pool area and playground.
All in all, this is by far the best place in the San Diego area we have ever found.
Thanks again for being terrific guests! We look forward to your return next year.
Feels like Home! Great Place for families!
What an amazing place to call "home" while on vacation, or for us, while during a relocation to a new state. Such a hectic time for my family and we were looking for somewhere that would feel like home with all the comforts and amenities of the one we just sold. The Janis' home provided all that and much more! So beautifully decorated, clean, and wonderfully comfortable! No expense spared on amenities, from a fully stocked kitchen, outdoor dining, grill, bedrooms, linens, office, laundry, beach towels, etc. I didn't feel like a rental, but a home away from home. Because it was so comfortable for our family, my kids were able to finish out school, study for finals and feel like we had never moved! And what a great place for family fun! The community pool and playground were fantastic! My kids even made some new friends in the neighborhood! We loved walking to the beach and we had quick access groceries, gas and some great restaurants are just down the street. I can't say enough about what a welcoming, family friendly place the Janis' have and what wonderful people they are. They went out of their way to ensure our stay was exceptional. When we come back to visit San Diego, we will always look to stay here!
Thanks, you and your family were wonderful guests! Please come back soon!
