Why Deanna Austin chose Carlsbad

It's a dream to stay at The Hideaway in Carlsbad Village!

A tranquil getaway with all the amenities of home. Walk to the lagoon and beach. Shop in The Village. Explore San Diego. Jump on the train to San Juan Capistrano (north) or Downtown (south). Everything a great vacation can offer is here!

Casual, comfortable and quality.

What makes this cottage unique

A top feature is that we also own an all-natural bakery in Leucadia on Coast Hwy 101. We can make arrangements to deliver a custom cake, pastries or a delicious basket of scones or Nordstrom’s favorite all-natural cookies. (Yes, we make cookies for Nordstrom too!)

See link below to order fresh pastries.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rating: 5/5

We really enjoyed returning to this lovely little cottage. It has everything you need to stay for a few days or a few weeks. We love the private patio and all it has to offer. The new Owners Deanna and Craig are so warm and welcoming. They are very responsive to any questions or concerns you may have before and during your stay here. This cottage is within walking distance to Carlsbad Village which offers lots of shopping and restaurants. We discovered a great little deli within walking distance called Pronto's. You can eat in or take out. So many choices with a great variety of options.

We look forward to returning in the future.

Thank you again to Deanna and Craig for making our stay so nice.

Cozy and comfortable cottage, close to everything

  • 5 of 5

My family of four (wife and two boys ages 10 and 7), had a great stay in this cozy cottage. It was and had everything we needed for our stay. It was very clean and the owners were always available for any questions we had. The owners seemed to have thought of everything, as they have heaters and a/c units for ever room. The beds were comfortable, including the sofa bed. This cottage is close to downtown and within walking distance to everything, including the beach. I will plan on staying here again in the future.

Great Stay in Carlsbad

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 days in Carlsbad and stayed here. It's a really cute and cozy place to two people. The patio is very private and completely enclosed which as good, as we had out two small dogs with us.

You can walk to everything in Carlsbad, including the beach. Great restaurants were everywhere which was really convenient. We had a wonderful time.

Deanna and Craig were very friendly and helpful. Craig was there to greet us and acquaint us with the place. Deanna came by the next day and filled us in on more. Truly wonderful hosts.

Cute and clean!

  • 5 of 5

The owners are lovely and met me when I arrived. The house is a guest house in back of the garage through a very tidy garden. The house was clean and well maintained. It is a great location but there is a bit of commuting traffic in the mornings and evenings. Overall a great stay.

Cozy and Comfortable Cottage with Everything We Needed (Absolutely Perfect)

  • 5 of 5

We wanted some place close to the shore, but not on the beach and it's resulting crowds. We're foodies, so we wanted a decent kitchen as well.

This was to be a low-key Christmas get away, so we also wanted comfort for watching the obligatory holiday movies. Add to our requirements a 13-year old Australian Shepherd and it isn't easy to find what we were looking for. However the moment we saw the pictures of the place we were sold.

It's off the main house, with its own fenced in courtyard with lots of greenery and a small table & chairs for sitting out on nice afternoons. Living room area is more than enough for two and could handle up to four comfortably. Decent size flat screen TV too.

Small, but very workable kitchen, full size gas stove with oven and a full-size refrigerator, is what made it perfect for us. We love to cook and did so for breakfast and dinner every day.

It's less than an city block to "The Village", which is the old downtown area of Carlsbad. Very quaint with lots of shops and restaurants. A 1/4 past that and you're at the beach.

You really can't beat this property for charm, serenity and comfort. However what made it extra special for us were Deanna and Craig. They were the perfect hosts. Rarely saw them (they're not watching you), but were always available if we needed them. Additionally, knowing we were foodies they pulled out the coffee table and put in a dinning table capable of seating 4-6. How nice was that? It's those little things that made our stay so great.

Any if you stay here, or anywhere in Carlsbad for that matter, you MUST stop by their daughter's bakery "Taste and Sea". We picked up a Sacher torte for dessert one night and it was incredible.

We're trying to figure out when we can get back over there because we loved it so much!

A Dandy Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic little cottage within walking distance of downtown Carlsbad. We stayed for four nights and could not have picked a better accommodation. The owners were welcoming and completely hospitable. Thanks for a great stay!
