Oceanfront Beach House - Private Beach! - Last Minute March Special!

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

Condo - (2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths)

Our spectacular beach property is 'On The Sand,' offering its own private beach while providing white water views and soothing ocean sounds (you hear the surf in every room). It has a bright beachy decor and a quiet location - conveniently located halfway between the Village in Carlsbad and the Pier in Oceanside (we walk on the sand to both).

This completely renovated home is fully furnished (we relax here frequently) and offers sweeping ocean views from La Jolla to Catalina. You can watch the dolphins play or the whales spout from the living room, deck, or beach.

At night, visit one of the area's fine restaurants or simply dine on the beach while watching the beautiful sun set over the Pacific. During the day, relax on the beach or enjoy the numerous activities that are unique to this fabulous destination.


This listing is for UNIT B. (Unit B is also at VRBO #882234).

UNIT B (sleeps 1 to 6): Has 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms and has a California king size bed in the master bedroom, a full size on the bottom and twin on top (bunk bed) in the guest bedroom, and a queen size sofa sleeper in the living room.

There are 3 different units. Unit A (2 Bd, 1 Ba - sleeps 6), Unit B (2 Bd, 2 Ba - sleeps 6), and Unit C (1 Bd, 1 Ba - sleeps 4). Unit A is VRBO #882233, Unit C is VRBO #253036, and all 3 units are VRBO #882235.

The units are vertically arranged with Unit A at the street level, Unit B in the middle, and Unit C at the sand level. All 3 units face the ocean, have oceanfront decks, and share the private beach.

Our beach house is 'well cared for' since we personally (as well as our family) stay in all 3 units, and we do have wireless broadband internet access. Over the years, we have had 100s of delighted beach loving guests.

Why Kelley chose Carlsbad

We had long desired to have a beachfront home and when we found this gem we were thrilled. We selected this area because it is right in the middle of a beautiful wide sandy beach that stretches for 3 miles from the village of Carlsbad to the pier in Oceanside. We also liked the fact that the house was located in a less dense area with mostly beach homes. Most of all we were excited by the private beach and the fact that we didn’t have to cross a street or get in a car to enjoy the ocean!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Good morning Marilyn,

I can't even begin to tell you how much fun we had and what an incredible vacation this was for our family. Our kids said it was the "best ever" and I would absolutely have to agree. It was so beautiful & so relaxing. We've told all our friends and family about it and I wouldn't be surprised if they contacted you about future vacations. I know my husband's family wants to do a big family vacation and rent all 3 levels. Hopefully, it's something that we can work out for next year. (If that falls through, I know Jeremy & I would love to come back.)

Thank you again for everything!

A slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We came out to California to visit my daughter and rendezvous with my other daughter. This house provided the perfect getaway. It was amazing to wake up every morning to the sound and sights of the surf. Watching the surfers was mesmerizing. The apartment was very comfortable for the 5 of us (two adults and three adult children. We could sit on the deck or in the living room with the doors open and watch the gorgeous sunsets. The kitchen had everything you needed. The house was in a great neighborhood and close to stores and restaurants. I appreciated the owner calling the first night to be sure everything was okay. I would definitely stay again if I was in the area.

Apartment direct at the beach site

  • 4 of 5

We spent 10 days in the apartment B which is nice for 4 persons as it has two bedrooms, each with attached bathrooms. As it is the sandwich flat you will hear your neighbours moving from flat above clearly. When we arrived the flat was clean but needed some fresh air. Be aware that the flat has no air conditioning. Kitchen is good equipped. Everything works.

Outside furniture was really basic and dirty. Also the private beach needs some renovation.

Compared to European standards you expect more for the money you have spent. But apartments close in the same location with direct access to the beach will charge 50-100 % more.

Now the beach looks like at the photos. They have finished the sand works during our stay. It is true that you can watch birds and dolphins from your veranda.

Be aware that the owners live in 30-45 min driving distance to the apartment.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately during this guest's stay, SANDAG was engaged in regional sand replenishment so that affected their overall experience. The beach and outside furniture is as shown in the first picture. As our home is right on the ocean and the water temperature rarely gets above 72 degrees, air conditioning is not needed. We live 20 minutes away, but have a local property manager 2 miles from the beach house that can handle any needs.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This place was great! We stayed in the two bedroom unit, and everything was as described. Sunset views and the sound of the ocean present in every room. We also enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the surfers. If you go, be aware there are beach toys under the stairs; our 5 year old had a fabulous time and it was nice to be able to let him play in the fenced area below without worry. Also, try the Beach Break Cafe just up the street for tasty brunch served with a big slice of local surfer vibe.

Right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this beach house, more in oceanside area. Good neighborhood. Around the block from a surf rental shop. So you can rent all your needs within walking distance. Our own beach was awesome. Surf was great! Not crowded. House we rented was the top rental with great veiws. This is a tri-plex. 2 bedroom with sofa pull out, was tastefully decorated with seaside cottage vibe(very cute). It has all your needs inside. Close to shopping and places to eat. It was a great vacation rental.

We arrived back yesterday after a great weeks vacation - possibly one of the best and most relaxing vacations we have had. You have a great place there in one of the best settings!

Thanks again - would imagine we will be back there again one day if available.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great trip! The boys did NOT want to leave. The condo was perfect. The view was amazing and how great to be steps from the beach. The boys loved the sand area and so appreciated the beach toys and especially the boogie boards!

It's hard to get back to real life after a relaxing vacation!
