About Coastal Casitas - Gary Cruse

We fell in love with the beach life in Carlsbad! After many trips down from Northern California, we decided Carlsbad was the place for us. With a love of the beach and a business focus around real estate, Coastal Casitas was born. We now own or manage a group of interesting beach oriented vacation properties.

Coastal Casitas has enjoyed it's success based on personal service and providing clean, honest, vacation rental properties at great prices!

Coastal Casitas - Gary Cruse purchased this house in 2008

Why Coastal Casitas - Gary Cruse chose Carlsbad

When we found "Casa Alegre", it was just the right combination of a beach neighborhood with a local family feel. We liked the location for the ease of visiting the surf and yet a short stroll to the village area. It's the perfect place to stretch out a bit and yet have easy access to all that Carlsbad has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Just 1 block to the surf & sand! This air conditioned classic beach home is set up for a carefree vacation. Enjoy the coastal climate sitting outside, strolling the beach, or take the walk to Carlsbad Village.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Have rented through VRBO in the past but this one through Coastal Casitas was the easiest and most pleasurable experience. Dealing with Gary was like dealing with someone I've known forever, it was that easy. The house was clean, easy to find, and the perfect size for myself and 2 older sons. Perfectly located for all the things that we wanted to do while staying in Carlsbad. Would not hesitate to call on Gary again.

Clean, convenient and homey

  • 4 of 5

This was our first VRBO rental and it was great. The house was clean, well supplied and there was a small backyard. It is convinient to the beach, downtown and ANA. Gary made it easy to rent and to check-in also he also checked during our stay to see if we needed anything. I will rent it again.

It was comfortable and ideal beach location

  • 4 of 5

The house had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable ESPECIALLY AIR CONDITIONER since it was unseasonably warm. Location was great for the beach and the back yard was very private.

Location, location, location.......

We love this place! Perfect location close to the beach and all that the North County has to offer. Great for families with kids who love the beach. My only suggestions are, more silverware, bath towels, and maybe some dark blinds in the master bedroom. Thanks again, we will be back!
