About Denise Junge
Starting with my early childhood summer vacations at the seashore in New Jersey, I have always loved the beach and ocean. After growing up on the San Francisco peninsula, surrounded by the Bay and the ocean, I moved to Hawaii ... and that was it! I became a true ocean addict. I have enjoyed the magnificence of an ocean view virtually my entire adult life, and consider it an essential. Getting tossed by the waves and walking on the beach are two of my favorite passtimes. It delights me to share the experience of these things with my guests, and to see their smiling faces as they relax and enjoy the stunning meeting of earth, sea, and sky!
Denise Junge purchased this House in 2001
Why Denise Junge chose Carlsbad
When I discovered the property, I said the same thing I have heard thousands of times from neighbors and visitors...'This is the Best Spot in Carlsbad!' This little neighborhood has it all: The gorgeous views of the ocean and the lagoon, wonderful ocean breezes, a trail from the property to the beach, proximity to the restaurants of the Village and the Coaster train, great nearby shopping, easy freeway access -- but it's just far enough away from all these to avoid the noise and traffic! And, being at the North end of San Diego County, it's a great location for day trips to Disneyland or LA as well as all the San Diego attractions.
What makes this House unique
There is something very special about this property and its classic beach house -- a feeling of peaceful enjoyment, serenity, and the beauty of nature. Yet, it's just a stones throw to all the action! Carlsbad's best beach, Tamarack, is right out front. It is a sandy beach with lifeguards (summer only), restrooms, and showers. The Village is one mile away, with many restaurants, cafes, icecream, gift shops, and boutiques. A shopper's delight awaits at the Carlsbad Company Stores mall, a 5 minute drive. The lagoon (just to the south and east of the property) offers fishing, exploring, jet skiing, and sailing. Many guests love to simply relax in the ocean breezes, enjoying the sunshine and views from the yard and patios, dining outside, and letting the kids play safely in the yard.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
This was the second visit and we enjoyed
our time just as much as the first!!!
Great Family Vacation
We loved our stay and the location was perfect. Plan to go back next year!
Will not be returning-ever!
View and location to the ocean was the best thing about this space. Manager was dishonest about beds being changed. They are so hard we took pain meds! I asked about the beds before booking because of the previous comments and so we were lied to. House is very old and needs updating. Blinds broken or mismatched. Security doors should be installed at both doors—no security at all and the street out front is so busy night and day because people are parking, fishing, and dog walking. Laundry room in back is filthy and scary walking into. Neighbors in back partied for 2 nights until 5am. If I could ask for money back we would! I have loved using VRBO/Airbnb for 16 years so this was very disappointing—we work hard and count on a nice comfortable stay when we vacation. Wanted to bring our dog this time so the yard was useful.
I loved everything about this beach property in Carlsbad, except the hard beds! I was hoping from some of the last reviews complaining of the hard beds that they would have been replaced by now. But that wasn't the case. That's why 4 stars not 5. Otherwise, we enjoyed our week. You can't beat the view and proximity to Tamarack beach is great. Lot's of parking and nicely landscaped, fenced yard. Our young grandsons came to visit and had a great time playing in the yard. My husband enjoyed fishing in the lagoon, right across the street! The house is very clean! Nice towels. Kitchen had everything we needed. It was also great having beach chairs, boogie boards, beach towels and toys to use. The manager was quick to respond and helpful. Overall it is the "Best Spot in Carlsbad". We will be back (as soon as they replace the beds!!!) :)
Home away from Home but with a "View"
For a short get-away with my family, this "best spot in Carlsbad" was perfect! Hope to come back soon!
Great setup for our family once again. Enjoyed the quiet end of the road location
We love the size of the home for our family. Quaint, simple and easy to use. All the accessories we needed and great location walking distance to the beach
Only wish the beds were a bit better!
