About Susan Daugherty

We are Susan & Gary and live just a few miles away, as having two houses and wanting to combine, left this one for you! I am in a family owed commercial landscaping business, and Gary is a Pharmacist. We enjoy entertaining, and traveling, and love where we live! Hope you decide to come and visit!

Susan Daugherty purchased this house in 2007

Why Susan Daugherty chose Carlsbad

The house has a very warm and comforting feel, and the back patio fills you with a feeling of 'awe', with the wide open view to the ocean and pine trees close by to give that truly outdoors feel. When I was planning how to encompass this feel, we decided we needed all the fun amenities, so as the jacuzzi, built in BBQ with seating all around, fountain for ambiance and a firepit to cozy up to, and a 400 sf redwood deck above for another even better view! The area is easily accessed just up Alga Rd from the 200 year old road trailed by the Padres called El Camino Real, that now has everything you need, shopping, resturants, golf, then the beaches another mile to the west!! It's fabulous!

What makes this house unique

When I am at this home, it feels like being on vacation! Everyone who comes in, says the same thing, or just, wow, I Love your house!

First off let me say that the owner, Susan, is amazing and she responded quickly to any questions we had. The home was unbelievable, perfect for our family of eight, five adults and three children. Plenty of space to be together as well as room for privacy when needed. The kids especially enjoyed the gaming systems, the Jacuzzi, and of course the huge game room with a wide variety of available items to take with us to the beach. The adults loved the peaceful ocean views from the patio and deck, the warm evening BBQs, and the very well stocked kitchen. I can't say enough about how wonderful this home is and what an incredible time we had!

Owner's Response: Thank you Ms. Slate for your wonderful review! I am so happy that you and your family from Kansas really enjoyed your stay at our Vacation Home for your vacation to Southern California! Yes it is quite an amazing home overall and we are so glad for the appreciation. And thank you for taking such good care of the house too! :) Susan

Terrific Thanksgiving weekend

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 4 nights over Thanksgiving weekend with our adult children here. The home was plenty large enough for the 5 of us. I agree with comments posted by others-Susan, you need some new pictures! The home is beautifully appointed and immaculate. The house is also VERY well supplied, as we had no problems cooking a complete Thanksgiving dinner in the kitchen (Susan, thanks for letting us borrow the turkey roaster). And then, seeing as how this is Southern California, we were able to have our dinner outside on the beautiful patio. Quite a unique experience for us Midwesterners. We really enjoyed watching the sunset from the large hot tub, and then drying off by the fire pit in the cool evening air. We would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, our 3 children, and two grandparents stayed in this beautiful house for a week in August! The house had everything we could ask for. Susan was quick to respond to texts and very helpful as we learned our way around Carlsbad and the surrounding area. The kids loved playing ping-pong and darts in the garage and of course using the X-box and Wii. We all loved hanging out on the incredible deck, relaxing in the Jacuzzi, sitting around the fire pit at night and eating dinner outside with seating to accommodate our entire group and then some. As a matter of fact, we have friends that live in the area and we loved the deck area so much, that we kept inviting them over to hang with us! We enjoyed staying at the house so much, that we could have spent most of our time there and been perfectly happy. But that’s not why we were vacationing in San Diego. We came to explore and explore we did. The location was perfect for our needs as well, just 10 minutes from Legoland, which we visited twice, about 30 minutes or so from the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, about 30 minutes to La Jolla Cove, where you can swim with or just watch the 100’s of seals swimming in the ocean or relaxing on the beach and rocks! Less than 30 minutes to the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, where you can do amazing hikes on the bluffs overlooking the ocean and the beach. Let’s not forget the beaches. Lots of different beaches located close by. Our favorite was Moonlight state beach. Susan provides everything you need to enjoy your day at the beach, from Tommy Bahama beach chairs, that you can wear on your back like a back pack, enough boogie boards for our whole family, beach towels and sand toys. There’s even a wetsuit in the garage! We definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in the San Diego area and will certainly stay here again, if we ever make it back out to the West Coast! Thanks for the terrific memories!

Beautiful Resort like Home in Carlsbad!

  • 5 of 5

Susan and Ron were extremely accommodating, friendly, and easy going in their interactions with us! When we arrived the house was spotless and looked absolutely fantastic! Each room was thoughtfully prepared and there were extra sheets and blankets in case people got cold. We loved the chess table, the games, the backyard BBQ and giant kitchen for cooking. It was a perfect getaway for Christmas season! Thanks so much Susan and Ron!

This home was perfect for our large family. It is big enough that we could be together, but still had our space to relax. The pictures really don't do the home justice. It is beautiful and we were very comfortable. We were able to enjoy ourselves and the amenities provided helped. Already planning on staying again.

Not a house but a Home

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at this Home with 6 grandchildren (ages 13 to 7) and mom dad with me, grandma, to round out the madness! The kids and adults had a great time. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out and not be falling over each other. This Home is fully furnished with everything you would ever need. Kitchen has everything needed to cook or grill. Patio is beyond wonderful and everyone enjoyed the jacuzzi. Kids loved the garage setup with games. No complaints at all. Susan is a joy to work with! Would love to stay again at some time!!
