ONLY 5 BLOCKS TO THE BEACH! PLAYHOUSE FOR THE KIDS!

Carlsbad Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-7)

Just 5 blocks to the beach! Kid's two-story playhouse with slide and climbing wall for kids up to 110 lbs. Your kids will entertain themselves for hours while you relax.

Near LEGOLAND! We are a 10 minute drive to Legoland. This charming 1940’s beach cottage in the middle of Carlsbad Village has been completely remodeled. The interior is open and airy with new beach colors and bright white beamed and vaulted ceilings in every room. Skylights and big windows bring in the sun and the cool breezes. At night the cottage becomes cozier and even romantic with subtle upper lighting controlled by dimmers. Hardwood floors, cushy area rugs, crown molding and inspired decor will remind you of your favorite beach home found on the pages of “Coastal Living” magazine.

Park your car when you arrive because you won’t need to drive again till it is time to leave for home. Five blocks to the ocean with great restaurants, shops and even a grocery store within a 2 – 10 minute walk from your front door. The Coaster train is 2 blocks away and can take you to Downtown San Diego in 50 minutes. Carlsbad has been described as the best small town on the beach.

Sleeping is easy with the breeze from the ocean and the comfortable new king size pedestal bed in the master bedroom. The second bedroom has a unique built -in bunk bed with a trundle underneath so that the room sleeps three. There are also two twin size day beds in the living room. The bathroom has been completely modernized with stone tiles, vessel sink and other new fixtures.

New appliances and a fully equipped kitchen complete with placemats, hand painted dishes, glassware, pots & pans, etc. make vacation meals a celebration. The kitchen has many staples and condiments so you have the basics if you decide to prepare any of your own meals. The living room is relaxing for the whole family with couch, chairs, soft area rug, dining table, and eating bar that opens up to the kitchen. Vaulted open ceilings in every room with ceiling fans throughout plus thermostatically controlled exchange fans at each end keep the cottage comfortable.

The “beach cottage” décor is bright and airy inside and outside there is gas barbeque on the side deck for grilling on a beautiful balmy evening. A patio set and umbrella complete the picture. The large front porch with four Adirondack chairs invites you to relax and watch the world pass by, just like in the 40’s. Added to the “no worries” atmosphere is the off-street parking for multiple vehicles. You can watch cable TV on the flat screen TV’s in the Living Room and Master Bedroom. The living room has a Blu-Ray player and a Red Box is within walking distance.

Complimentary Wifi is included throughout the house, porch and patio areas. A washer/dryer is located inside the house. This home is located in a quiet neighborhood. If you are looking for a party location, this is not the place. No pets and no smoking on the property. The house will be very clean when you arrive. We take pride in our cottage. Thanks.

Summer rentals are by the week only, other times there is a three night minimum.

This 1940's cottage was very charming and right in the heart of Carlsbad Village. It is even more inviting now that it has been remodeled and opened up inside. Being only 5 blocks to the beach is a real plus. Located in the heart of the village gives easy access to restaurants and shops as well as everything else we need.

The cottage has everything you will need for a completely relaxing vacation. There are hardwood and tile floors with area rugs and ceiling fans throughout. A quiet front porch is shaded by giant trees. All bedding and towels as well as soap, shampoo and a hair dryer are provided. The complete kitchen has everything you will need: stainless steel sink, disposal, dishwasher, microwave, gas stovetop w/oven and refrigerator. A coffee maker, toaster, food processor and blender are included. There is a dining area and eating bar in the living room, an ice cream seating set in the kitchen and a patio table on the side deck with the gas barbeque. There is a tub/shower combination in the bathroom. You can dim the lights in each room so that you can create the mood you desire. Then set the cable TV to a romantic station or put your favorite CD in the Blu-Ray player and sit back and enjoy. High speed Wifi Internet is ready when you need it. the washer/dryer is inside the house. NO SMOKING PLEASE. Summer rentals are by the week only, other times there is a three night minimum.

Your kids will keep busy by themselves for hours playing on the 2 story playhouse with slide and climbing wall. You can relax while they wear themselves out!!

We very much enjoyed our stay in this vacation rental. The house was spotless, very family friendly (the kids LOVED the bunk beds, the toys, the outdoor playhouse, the kid-friendly channels on the TV, etc.), it had everything we needed, the owners respected our privacy and even gave us our deposit back the day we checked-out! It was close to the beach, close to downtown Carlsbad, close to supermarkets. We have nothing negative to say and will definitely be back! The home is updated/modern and the decor is just adorable (beachy decor- like straight out of a Pottery Barn catalog). This rental is perfect for a family with small kids (our kids are 1 and 4)...if you have little ones, do NOT hesitate to book this rental.

Trés agréable séjour / Realy Relaxing stay

Our stay was brillant and realy relaxy. We enjoyed Carlsbad life like local inhabitants.
Comments for the French visitors: La maison est trés agréable et rien absoluement rien ne manquait depuis les serviettes de plage et passant par des éponges neuves, jouets de plage, parsole, un BBQ... Tout était trés propre et les propriétaires charmants (ils habitent à côté).
Carlsbad est bien situé pour visiter San Diego, Lego land, le zoo ect... et la maison est dans le centre du village ce qui nous a permis d'aller le soir au resto ou de faire qlq courses, à pied. La plage est proche mais un peu loin pour y aller à pied (à moins de ne pas être chargé) - 1 min en voiture et on se gare trés facilement devant la plage.
Les enfants ont adoré la cabane et les lits supperposés.

Perfect stay in Carlsbad

We searched extensivly on the internet before we booked this cottage. We really enjoyed it (a family of 4 with 2 small kids aged 2 and 4). We loved it as soon as we entered the house.
It was a short drive to the beach, to Legoland and an even shorter walk to restaurants and shops.
If we are in the Carlsbad region again, we surely book the place again.

You are close to everything. Only 5 blocks to the beach. Just a 2 – 10 minute walk to many restaurants with outdoor dining, live music, coffee shops, pubs, and shopping. Surfing in Carlsbad and all of San Diego can be very good for experts and there are some great spots here in Carlsbad that are easy and safe for learning. Great beaches for boogie boards, skim boards, just walking with your feet in the surf or kicking back with a book and a Starbucks (only a few blocks away). You can park in your driveway and walk to everything. Golf is close by, as are wildlife walks and horseback riding. Carlsbad Beach has been voted one of the top 5 family beaches in the U.S. and is also a very quiet, peaceful and safe town

Legoland -10 minutes, Sea World - 30 minutes, the world famous San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park are 40 minutes, San Diego Harbor - 40 minutes, San Diego airport - 40 minutes, Petco Park Baseball Field – 40 minutes
