Gorgeous Waterfront Estate Property With Incredible Ocean Sunsets
average rating of 5.0 based on 6 reviews

The house was beautiful! Exactly as described/expected. Awesome stay.

  • 5 of 5

The owner takes great care of the property and paid attention to little details that make the stay comfortable. The house was *clean*! I'm a clean freak and was so excited--even the inside of the fridge had been wiped down! Yay! I think this was our best vacation rental so far. The owner was very kind and pleasant to deal with. We will definitely come back, if he'll have us!!!

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect setting for a reunion of three couples who were friends in college and are now retirees. Fifty years of friendship deserves something special, and that is what Buena Vista Lagoon House is. The three large bedrooms are located at separate corners of the house, and with a bathroom for each bedroom, the house offers good privacy for couples traveling together. The living room, back deck overlooking the lagoon, and front deck offer plenty of comfortable seating for everyone. There is a large dining table plus another table making it comfortable to seat 12 for inside dining. The huge kitchen is great for group cooking (many cooks can be in the kitchen at the same time), its stocked with everything we needed to prepare delicious meals, and has lots of counter space. The gated parking provided enough parking for two pick-up trucks and an SUV. The large capacity washer and dryer was great to have. Grilling outside watching the sun set over the lagoon was wonderful. The owner lives next door which was handy when we had questions about good places to eat. He is a great guy and sets a very welcoming tone for the stay. The house is at the end of a quiet residential culdesac, but is very close to the shops, restaurants, and beaches of Carlsbad Village. It was also close to the freeway so getting to San Diego and surrounding communities was easy. The yard is large and has a play structure if you have children in your group. We loved this place and definitely will rent it again if we return to Carlsbad. It was perfect!

The house was spacious, clean and beautiful, with a great view of the lagoon! We were all very pleased, and enjoyed our stay. They have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The location is also perfect. It's close to the beach and the village. The owner was super helpful and friendly. We will for sure go back.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end, this is a wonderful home to rent. Working with John was a great experience... he's quick to respond and highly efficient. He made the process easy and pleasant which in turn, made our arrival all the more enjoyable.

The house is GORGEOUS! You couldn't ask for a more serene, beautiful, captivating location. We could barely tear ourselves away from the lagoon and beautiful view. The house is spacious and clean, with a well appointed kitchen and all the basic necessities anyone would need. The house is just as described in the listing, no unfortunate surprises and the outdoor spaces are truly amazing. The owner is very helpful and friendly.

The only negative aspect of our lovely weekend was coming back to LA County with our normal little yards, cinder block walls, and excruciating heat. We hope to be back soon, very soon!! Thank you for a wonderful weekend!!

Exceeded expectations - amazing stay in Carlsbad

  • 5 of 5

Even though this home met our needs on paper we purchased travel insurance because there wasn't much info on this property - new property on the market, no reviews, area of older homes, basic pictures (pictures now upgraded), etc. Turns out it was totally unnecessary as the home was absolutely fantastic and good value too. We had four adults and four kids (including three teenagers) and the configuration worked very well. There is a generous yard (one acre lot) and stunning views over the peaceful lagoon and ocean. The recently renovated property had been professionally cleaned when we arrived with a nice amenity to welcome us upon our late arrival. We had good communication with the owners representatives before arrival and special attention and service from the owner, Kerry, who lives in the area. Whenever we needed anything he was there to assist. There was lots to keep the kids busy - boogie boards for the beach, Ping-Pong table, playground, etc. with books/movies/big TV to interest the adults and a well appointed kitchen with outdoor BBQ for dining in. One glitch - the kids wanted to go camping and since there were no places available at the beach so we set up a tent in the spacious yard. They came running in dripping wet during the middle of the night because we neglected to turn off the sprinkler timers - our bad! We would definitely recommend this to a friend and hope that the home is available next time we return to North County. You can't go wrong here....
