CARLSBAD BEACH HOUSE

Carlsbad House Rental Photos and Description

Short walk to beach-2bd/2ba and 2bd/1ba homes available

I have 2 Carlsbad beach homes available to rent. The other listing is 235308 which has summer dates still available. They are about 200-300 yards from the beach. It is just a bit over a mile to walk along the beach to the Carlsbad Village where they have many bars, restaurants and surf shops.

There are two homes on one property. The first home is a two bedroom and two bath unit. It has a great living area with a big brick fireplace(the real kind), a big bath tub and a shower in both bathrooms, large rooms and a full kitchen with the utensils needed to make it just like staying in your own home. There is king bed in the master bedroom and at bunk bed with a full and a twin in the other bedroom. There is a large couch to sleep on as well. It could sleep 6 comfortably.

Both homes have internet throughout, cable tv(including HBO, Cinemax and Showtime), a washer and dryer, linens and an outside shower. There is space for about 4 cars in front of the house.

Since there are two homes on the one lot, there is a common area. It has an outside fire pit with seating, a cement patio set and a separate little shack to sleep in. We call it the surf shack and it is just a room(no plumbing) to sleep in. I rent it for $100 per week as an add on for either unit. The common area is for both units to enjoy so please be courteous to respect the privacy of the other unit. This is not a party property. if you plan to have parties, please go the next property.

Both homes are true beach homes with hardwood floors, an outside shower, beach towels and other beach things. It is VERY dog and kid friendly.

The home is a short walk to the beach. Its a few hundred yards. I went there every day in the summer when I lived there.

Carlsbad is great beach town. It is beautiful and quiet. The weather is spectacular in the summer. Carlsbad Village is a little over a mile from the home. Legoland is few miles away. The San Diego Wild Animal Park is about 20 minutes away in Escondido. Downtown San Diego is about 30 miles away. San Diego has Seaworld, the world famous San Diego Zoo, Petco Park(home of the Padres), Torrey Pines Golf Course and all of the great restaurants and bars downtown has to offer. I have another listing downtown(vrbo #308442) if you would like to stay downtown for a few days.

The home is next to the train tracks. There are two types of trains. The first is the San Diego Coaster. It runs 10 times or so during the day. It is a commuter train and goes by in 2 seconds. It is not loud at all unless the north bound blows the horn right when its going by the house. It only runs during the day. The second are the freight trains. They are long and heavy. They are not loud, but are heavy. They come by two times or so per day. Sometimes they come by in the middle of the night, but that is rare. I lived in both houses for five years and they rarely disrupted my sleep, but I want to make all residents aware because if you are an extremely light sleeper or sleep during the day, it may be a problem for you. The address is 393 Date, Carlsbad, CA

Great location, great landlord

Easy walking distance from the center of town but on a quiet street, off the beaten path. One block from the ocean. Todd is a great landlord, helpful, friendly yet non obtrusive. In his description of the property he says a lot about the nearby train but it was never a problem. You don't see it at all and although the trains are steady throughout the day the sound never bothered us. I'm not disabled but saw no impediments to someone who might be. No steps.

We had a great time at this Carlsbad beach house. The beach was only a few blocks away, but only problem was no dogs were allowed at that beach. Luckily for us a great dog beach was only a few miles away. Kitchen was stocked well, loved the ping pong table, and felt like home. The new heater worked great! Thanks!

Owner's Response: thanks for the kind words. I haven't lived here in quite a few years, where is the dog park? I thought the closest one was Del Mar.

Great bargain

Loved the house. Stayed with my husband and 3 kids and it was just the right size. I thought the train noise would be a problem, since I am a light sleeper, but it was not bothersome at all. Nice walk to beach, neighborhood is very nice. The kitchen had all the basics we needed for cooking our own meals. Because we stayed in early October, we had no need for heating or cooling, so I can't speak to that. There were a few issues: the upper bunk did not have enough slats for even an 8-year-old's weight (we went to Home Depot and got two more boards for it); no mattress pads on any of the mattresses (not sanitary); the house needed a thorough cleaning (cobwebs, some grime on walls, carpets and upholstery stained or in need of cleaning, outside laundry room dirty). Todd was very helpful and nice, and asked to be left a list of items that needed tending to. If these issues were remedied I would give it 5 stars for the price. DON'T use the ceiling fan in the second bedroom if you have a child on the top bunk--it is too close to the ladder and will hit them in the face or head. Overall I would definitely recommend and will very likely stay again next year.

Recent stay near legoland

We had a terrific time and the Beachhouse was very centrally located in carlsbad California. It so close to legoland we came back every day to Beachhouse to eat lunch. We enjoyed the beach bikes and spent a little time at the beach.Vons grocery store was only about a mile away. Very fun place to stay and the owner is nice and very helpful. Very kid friendly at least my four kids enjoyed it very much.

Very good rental for the price

We started off on the wrong foot when we showed up at the home hours before our check in (my bad). The owner however was very responsive and helpful. We really enjoyed our 4 night stay at the house. It's a very easy walk down to the beach, and the outdoor shower is perfect for when you come back. Love the patio/terrace area, it's a great hangout spot and the fire pit was perfect for the chilly evenings. Only recommendation would be the kitchen could use a few more cooking utensils and and extra skillet, strainer etc. We cooked most our meals in, and that would have been helpful. Overall this has is very worth the rental cost. Perfect for a beachy getaway!
