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!

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 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.

2 Bedroom Cottage - you have got to see...

  • 5 of 5

So, after my daughter's bicycle accident (requiring 5 stitches to the chin and 4 pulled teeth) which delayed our arrival, Debra made us very welcome in her very cozy 2 bedroom home only 1 block from the beach.

The home is about 8 blocks from the Carlsbad Village where all your tastes and desires can be met (be sure to check out Pizza Port and Fahrenheit 451 Books). Debra also has beach towels, boogie boards, chairs and an umbrella for your beach-going.

Watch the surfers, run on the beach or just hang out. About 5 minute drive from Legoland too.

Great place to stay for your beach-Legoland adventure.

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

  • 4 of 5

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!

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with our holiday stay at this home near Carlsbad beach. With our 4 year old and 9 year old we found the house to be comfortable and most importantly convenient to fun(!). The home was a short walk from the beach. One block across two streets. Easy enough for our children to walk but if not, there was a stroller and wagon handy as well. There was parking at the same location too if we wanted to just drive down as well but it was quicker to walk. We walked daily to the beach during our stay and found the beach to be clean and quiet. We also spent a couple days at Legoland and doing things around town (children's play place down the road one mile, bowling within 2 miles, donut shop, restaurants within a 1 mile or two), etc. It would definitely be a location we would return to in the future. The home itself is a nice size. It had two bedrooms, one with a bunkbed and one master, both were roomy with storage for our things. The Living Room was nice sized and the home had internet and cable TV. The kitchen and eating area was perfect for our needs as well while we stayed there. Enough pots/pans/plates/cups with coffee/frig/stove/dishwasher to use daily. Having a small washer / dryer was also a must and it worked well. The only small downside was that we had two vehicles this trip and the parking was for one but we never had trouble finding parking across the street or in front of the house and it was a fairly busy weekend around town it seemed so it wasn't much of a downside. We didn't explore the village much but had we come sans-kids there were a bunch of restaurants and stores I would've love to explore as well.

A true Carlsbad gem...

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Casa Alegra while our home was under construction for three months. The property is the perfect beach bungalow, just a block to the beach, the fantastic Carlsbad Boardwalk, and walking distance to the village. The home is cozy, functional and truly became our home-away-from-home. The property owners were fantastic to work with and we hope to have the opportunity to stay again with Coastal Casitas. Casa Alegra is a true gem in fantastic Carlsbad!
