Overview

Carlsbad House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6, plus infant)

Bright, airy, private home with ocean breezes. French doors and 16-pane windows throughout create the feeling of a romantic cottage. A wood burning fireplace and modern, fully equipped kitchen allow you to settle in and make The Edwinds home away from home.

Nestled in Olde Carlsbad, where each home is unique - no track home presence - with quiet neighbors and mature gardens and Palm trees.

If you feel the need, there is a full office space with desk, lamp, chair, and wireless printer that also doubles as a game room with ocean views from the attached deck. Or, enjoy the TV Room with DVD as another space -- both allow for work and play while there.

Day or evening, sip a cocktail on the private ocean view deck, and take in amazing, unobstructed sunsets.

The heart of the house opens onto a pristine, outdoor oasis with a day bed, bbq, patio, fruit trees and cactus garden in complete privacy. Gardener tended gardens and yard ensures green grass to sink your feet into, all winter long.

It's a happy place to be!

About The Owner

We love The Edwinds West - named after both our fathers who were named Edwin, coupled with the amazingly fresh ocean breezes there.

We were married in 2011, and with Todd's work on the east coast, we are only able to enjoy this home occasionally, so we decided to share it with others!

We are both lovers of the outdoors and spend time sailing, mountain biking and golfing together, particularly in Carlsbad...

We both spent years working in the Hotel business, and so love to create wonderful experiences with our friends and family through cooking, wine tasting, entertaining and traveling.

We have 2 cats who stay with us on the east coast, and Todd 3 kids who are now heading off to college.

Eventually we will return to The Edwinds West to enjoy a fabulous retirement.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Carlsbad

After many discussions, we decided to open our home to people, like us, who enjoy vacation rentals. We have trust in the network of people who experience and trust others homes as their own, and hope to hear about wonderful experiences for those who stay there.

What makes this house unique

We love to bike or walk to the beach in the mornings... after a few blocks, you suddenly see and feel the ocean and pick up your pace to get on the sand. We walk for miles without many people around in most parts, and enjoy the fabulous oceanfront mansions along the way.

We do the same for wonderful dinners on the ocean or in The Village. Paon - Zagat rated and where we held our wedding dinner is a favorite for wine tasting and dinners, and Vigillucci's on the ocean with live music and a great outdoor view deck. We also love the local pubs, shopping, and restaurants for fish tacos and sunset rituals.

Carlsbad Premium Outlets are just 2 miles away and have endless finds with some of our favorite brands. Because it's an outdoor mall, it's wonderful even on a sunny day.

There are so many places to golf year round within a few miles, that we can't settle on one favorite spot.

A few blocks from the house is a salt water lagoon with paddle boards, jet skis and kayaks, which we love. While on the water, we see seals and amazing birds...such a hidden treasure.

Mission Bay, Oceanside Pier, Legoland, The famous San Diego Zoo and Safari are all a quick drive away. Disneyland and Orange County finds like Laguna and Newport Beach are perfect 30-40 minute drives. All summer, we enjoy Legoland firework displays from our deck.

Sometimes we just cruise the coast, and visit the small towns on the water to stroll, shop or dine in. We love the meditation gardens in Encinitas and kayaking with the Sea Lions in La Jolla.

Fantastic Holiday Home!

  • 5 of 5

The Edwinds is a fantastic holiday home - spacious, comfortable and very welcoming. We enjoyed using the spa after a busy day out and appreciated all the extras provided - the boogie boards, coolers, seats and beach towels as well as all the ingredients left in the kitchen. The house is super convenient with a Vons store and chemist within walking distance and easy access to the freeway.

Carlsbad Village is lovely with pleasant places to eat and some quaint shops, as well as the fantastic beach.

There is so much to see in this area - beaches and towns along Highway 101, San Diego and Sea World and a little further away Disneyland.

We had an amazing holiday and look forward to returning in the future.

Great location, Wonderful House !!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in Jan 2014, 3 adults and 1 child. The house was fab everything we needed was available in a very safe location.

We locked ourselves out on one occasion and the owners were very swift and available straight away to get us back inside which was very re assuring, the house is within walking distance of the local amenities and the beach.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to anyone else.

Thank you for a great time !!!!!!

Perfect family vacation rental. My daughter and I stayed here during the softball world series. This property is spectacular. The front yard and back yard are absolutely perfect for lounging, game playing and entertaining. We had the team come over for a bar-b-que after our games one day. Everyone remarked on how spacious, open, and beautiful the house was. The pictures don't do it justice. The owners have graciously stocked it full of every beach necessity imaginable. The kitchen has everything you need, the bedrooms are loaded with comfy bedding and towels-even fans! It is walking distance to the bay aquatic area where the girls rented paddle boards, jet skis, played sand volleyball and ping pong. The beach is a 2 minute drive where there is public parking and miles of beautiful surf. I highly recommend!

Owner's Response: We appreciate your nice comments, and we're glad that the home and the nearby aquatic lagoon with water sports was fun for them! Aside from the bbq you held for some of your daughters teammates, a little note that this home isn't suitable for gatherings as it is a quiet neighborhood. (Just for the future reference of potential guests.) Thanks for staying with us!

A lovely week in Carlsbad

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Edwinds was just fantastic. The house is extremely comfortable and is certainly large enough for more than just the four of us, however, we enjoyed all of the space available. The house had a lovely homely feel about it. It was spotless when we walked in and felt very homely.

We were in the sea at Carlsbad beach every day. We rented wet suits and another board from the surf shop. All went well and we all caught some nice waves. We even saw a dolphin playing around in the surf one day.

Our stay in Carlsbad was just lovely and this was partly due to the comfortable house of course. We ate in some restaurants around the town but mostly at home using the local Vons where the people were super helpful. We were even given a membership card which means we got money off each time we shopped.

All the best and thanks for letting us stay in Edwinds. Couldn't have asked for more.
