About Kevin & Patty

We love relaxing & enJoying Carlsbad Village-by-the-Sea! Every chance we can get we stay at Casa del Sol - our Home Away from Home! We are very fortunate to have grown up in Southern California and the MidWest and we love combining our creative and engineering minds to Casa del Sol every chance we can get!

We are very fortunate to have explored the beautiful coastlines of Australia, Hawaii, Brazil, England, Mexico and Portugal and enjoyed the picturesque towns in Italia, Argentina, Espana, Greece and Germany. Met wonderful people, ate amazing food and experienced magical places - every time we come back home we are reminded what a beautiful, relaxing & charming place Carlsbad Village-by-the-Sea is - tucked quietly between LA and San Diego...

Kevin & Patty purchased this house in 2000

Why Kevin & Patty chose Carlsbad

We love the location! Walking to the Village for groceries, getting a bite to eat or relaxing at a cafe. Biking, jogging or walking through the Village to the sandy beaches to play with our son and continue along the beautiful coastline. We love coming back to our private pool and spa, which is rare this close to the beach. The single story design is very free flowing - with the inside opening up to the outside and enjoying the fresh ocean air from every room. The beach and ocean are very beautiful, easily accessible and clean in the area. Very easy access to the major sites of Southern California - San Diego, Orange County & Los Angeles.

What makes this house unique

Carlsbad Village by-the-Sea is THE ideal place to experience a relaxing yet entertaining Southern California vacation for everyone - families, couples, kids and adults. The Village is what the LA beach towns - Santa Monica to Hermosa Beach - were like 40 years ago. And The OC - Huntington Beach to Dana Point - was like 20 years ago. A very beautiful and accessible coastline with miles of sandy coves and beaches with a laid back Aloha atmosphere - Hawaii on the Mainland!

Great Family Vacation Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for sharing your home with us! It truly was our home away from home. The kids loved the pool and the grown-ups loved the spa! The home had everything that we needed, especially a well-stocked kitchen! The bedrooms had comfortable beds and warm comforters (which we needed for the cool nights). The men appreciated the cable!! They spent New Year’s Day watching every football game available! The location was PERFECT! and allowed us to hit the vacation destinations as well as relax by the beach.

Kervin and Patty called the first evening to make sure everything was in order, and they were quick to respond to our call regarding a pool operating question! Thanks for a WONDERFUL week!! We can't wait to come back to Casa del Sol :-)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy you got to enjoy your stay in sunny Southern California over New Years! The warm pool and even warmer spa are always a welcome option from the cold-cool ocean water most of the year. Glad you enjoyed the location and amenities so much. Thank you again & enJoy!

Casa del Sol in Carlsbad

We had a lovely time at the vacation home. VERY impressed with the place and everything it had to offer. For our two families the rooms were perfect and the pool was the biggest hit (even wanting to leave Legoland early to go back to the pool!). All of the extras that were provided completely blew my expectations out of the water! The garage door opener - nice touch. The binder with maps and info, we used it often. Bikes were enjoyed. Having the owners call us and check-in with us, nice to know they were a phone call away. The ease of arriving and getting the key as well as the departure.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Casa del Sol! We love to keep our Casa a home away from home - for others to enJoy - we stay at ourselves every chance we can get. Glad to hear you enJoyed the pool, bikes and all the extras.

casadelsol happy!

We had a wonderful experience at the Casadelsol vacation home!  The house was even better in person than the picture. Everything was so clean and they have everything a person could want available. Cool decorating in bedrooms, great DVD collection, wonderfully stocked kitchen, bathrooms, bikes, etc! With seven adults I thought we would feel cramped, but we didn't!  With the excellent centrally located location we enjoyed the Zoo, Torrey Pines, Mission Beach, Venice Beach, Hollywood, LaJolla, and of course The Carlsbad area and the lagoon. The kids used the hot tub, pool, and bikes and played basketball at several local parks. Thank you for all the tourist info - offering maps and directions and the personal attention answering questions of how things worked.

Owners returned damage deposit promptly!

Perfect and more......

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this home. The best for our family ever. The bikes were great, the sleeping arrangements perfect, the pool and hot tub were wonderful. We did use the bikes and also walked a lot. If someone cannot walk a lot, like myself, it was a short ride to many things.The town of Carlsbad was fun with lots of restaurants and things to do.

The park down the street was good for our 2 1/2 year old. He also loved the fire engine and put out many 'fires". We hit the beach daily, usually all morning and then back home for a nap. Sometimes we went to the beach near 3. It was always fun and parking was not a problem.The boogie boards and wet suits came in handy.

The photos were clear and the description accurate. Everything was clean and easy to locate what was needed. The back yard is lush with tropical plantings, many pool toys and more tables and chairs. It is charming.

It seemed to me that the owners had gone out of their way to provide everything a family could possibly want. We would definitely like to come back.

Thanks for all your assistance and we all wish you the very best.

Owner's Response: Wonderful to hear your family enjoyed your stay so much. We had a wonderful warm summer with long sunny days and the ocean has stayed warm through Fall this year. We hope to see you again next summer.

A great spring break!

  • 5 of 5

This venue was all that was advertised and more. My three adult children, their children and I had a terrific time and Casa del Sol greatly helped to faciliate this. We expected it to be convenient to Carlsbad and the greater San Diego attraction, but with five small grandhchildren, we spent more time at the house than perhaps other visitors. We enjoyed the pool, the hot tub, the well landscaped yard and neighborhood, the well equiped kitchen, the bicycles, the childrens beach toys, the convenient access to Carlsbad, the patio with its grill and fire pit, and the family room with its fireplace. I gladly recommend this facility to my friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We really enjoyed meeting you and your family. Seeing 3 generations enjoy themselves at Casa del Sol is one reason we maintain our home away from home for others to enjoy! We are very happy you had such a great time. Take care & enJoy!

Do yourself a favor and stay here!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous, relaxing experience. The kitchen was so very fully appointed!! Nothing was missing! We L-O-V-E-D having the pool and hot tub right out the back door. The yard is exceptional! So beautiful and tropical. My brother Jack didn't like the beach after the first day. The water was too cold for him to swim in the ocean, so he spent most of each day in the pool!! He really, really enjoyed himself! Carlsbad Village is so quaint, yet quiet, yet so full of life....Thanks for making every effort to make your home away from home our home away from home!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay so much! Yes the heated pool and spa really help warm up the stay when the ocean is in winter/spring hibernation mode. We also love how the Village is quaint and quiet yet still eclectic and full of life. Experiencing an Old California beach town is still possible in Southern California! We also enjoy staying at our home away from home every chance we can get! Thank you for your kind words & enJoy!
