Carlsbad House Rental Photos and Description
1 to 3 bedrooms, 2 or 3 baths, depending on configuration; sleeps up to 8
The Heart of the Village is situated in “the Village” of Carlsbad, California. With its homes, shops and restaurants, this charming older downtown area provides an oasis from the hustle and bustle of daily life. A few blocks to the west lies the Pacific Ocean, and miles of sandy beach.
The Heart of the Village is an attractive destination year-round, whether you want to warm up in winter or cool down in summer. In spring a short trip south takes you to Carlsbad's Flower Fields, which burst with color and are a tourist attraction in themselves. In fall you will find wonderful weather for taking long walks on the beach, or jogging or biking along the coast.
And we make it easy! There is a 3-night minimum, but no other restrictions. Just check availability, pick the dates you want to arrive and depart, and decide how many bedrooms you need.
Our Location: An 8-minute drive south takes you to Legoland California and the famous Carlsbad Flower Fields. A little further down the road you'll find the Del Mar Racetrack, Sea World and the San Diego Zoo. Meanwhile, the Pacific Ocean with miles of sandy beach is a short walk away.
Transportation Options: While parking is provided, a car is optional. Virtually everything you need is within walking distance. But if you want to leave town, many southern California points of interest are accessible by rail and trolley. The nearby Coaster commuter train connects to Amtrak to the north, and to the San Diego Trolley and bus systems to the south. Along the way are stops at some fun-filled beach communities.
Our Climate: Whether you want to escape the summer heat or the winter snow, or just enjoy the year-round outdoor activities that abound in southern California, you won't find a more pleasant, comfortable environment.
Some people say we have the most ideal climate in the country. Who are we to disagree?

The Heart of the Village is a Vermilyea family-owned business. Our parents bought the property in 1944. It had two houses on it, and our large family occupied both of them. Only one bathroom and four bedrooms served all ten of us. But we loved growing up here. We were in a small town, close to the beach, and there were lots of kids in the neighborhood. What could be better than that?
A lot has changed in Carlsbad over the nearly 70 years we've been here. The residential neighborhood we grew up in has become a commercial district. But we wanted to keep the property and make it available to our extended family, and we have been able to do that. At the same time, building a vacation rental business has allowed us to meet new friends and share what we have with them.
It starts with the beach. Carlsbad is known for having 8 miles of quality sand and surf. And it's only a four-block stroll to get there! Add to that Legoland California, just about seven minutes away by car. Not to mention all of the great local attractions within walking distance. People love it here, and we think you will too!
