Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property within walking distance of Carlsbad State Beach. Being able to sit on the balcony and enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the ocean was a highlight of our weekend getaway. It is located right behind the Tamarack Beach Resort but we never had any issues with noise from the resort. There are a few units located on the property and the grounds are very well maintained. Everything has been recently remodeled and totally updated. The inside of our upstairs unit was very clean and well stocked. Although we didn’t have time to enjoy the outdoor area it was a nice feature to have available. One tip I do have is the driveway is rather narrow and parking is a bit tight. Thankfully we took our small SUV as a full size truck would have been a bit difficult to maneuver. We will defininetly check here first when returning to the area!

Love the location

  • 4 of 5

This is a great location with best views in the complex. Provided is everything you could possibly need to go to the beach, which is right across the main street. The place is upgraded with new fixtures and bedroom air conditioners are a perfect way to fall asleep. This is our third year renting from Shawn & Lilly and they are very helpful and accessible. The 5 minute walk to the shops/restaurants is perfect. (Recommend Naked Cafe, 83 Degrees)

The reason I cannot give 5 stars is the noise. I enjoy my time on the patio to read, have coffee and so forth. It has always been a little loud due to the Tamarack Inn/Dini's Restaurant being in the near proximity (no train noise). This year, the construction across the street made the patio uncomfortable from early morning through the entire day. Construction was our wake-up call. Nothing Lily/Shawn could do about this, but is was very loud, very disappointing. Good news is it should be complete by our next visit.

Great location, easy access, owner communication was awesome

  • 5 of 5

Very close to legoland and the beach. Exactly what we wanted. Lots of options for food, owner let us check in early and check out later. Very accommodating. Place fully furnished. Shampoos, towels, utensils, beach toys and supplies, wagons, you name it. A+++. Only one concern, the noise level from the hotel next door can be loud on weekends. Not a real issue for my family. But something to think about. Location one block away from tamarack state beach.
