About Pam Kerckhoff

I am from Southern California. I have been living in Carlsbad for over 15 years and love it here!

Pam Kerckhoff purchased this condo in 2013

Why Pam Kerckhoff chose Carlsbad

I grew up being able to walk to the beach and to shopping. I loved it! I live in Carlsbad, but have to drive to the beach. So when an opportunity came up to buy a property that was very close to the beach and to the Village in Carlsbad I took it.

What makes this condo unique

Properties don't become available in this development very often. What I love about this unit is that it is on the ground floor, has two private enclosed patios, and is in a sunny and quiet location in the complex.

This is the perfect property for a couple's Carlsbad get away! It hits the bulls-eye with its location and comfort/style. Want to take serene early morning stroll along the beach? No problem! Step out the door, walk about a block and you're there. Forget using your car. Numerous restaurants and shops of all kinds are in walking distance throughout the quaint village. How about a day in San Diego with all its attractions? Walk a few blocks to the train station, hop on the Coaster and be in downtown SD in less than an hour. For a southern Cal beach experience, head 3.5 miles to Oceanside's beach with its long pier, concessions and vendors, and enjoy the show put on by the surfers and people having fun at the beach. After your fun-filled day, relax in your comfortable condo with its breezy, inviting decor. Open a bottle of wine and enjoy the great Carlsbad weather on your private patio. Like I said, this place is a real gem!

Well maintained and super clean and cute

We have rented with Pam for several years. The property is always clean and comfortable. It is super close to the beach and in the heart of the village. You can't go wrong with this property.

Great spot to stay!

  • 4 of 5

Great location! Walking distance to lots of good restaurants and the beach. Very clean and cutely decorated place. On our second night someone arrived in the condo directly above ours and we could hear everything (walking, singing, talking). We were out doing things most of the time so it ended up not being much of a problem.

Great place! Affordable and a killer location

  • 5 of 5

We will be staying here again for sure. Super good location, 3 min walk to a perfect beach and right near all of the shops in Carlsbad. The unit was outfitted very well, kitchen, linens, beach gear, etc. Plenty of room for a family of 4, Adults in the bedrooms, kids in the sofa bed. Nice seating area off the bedroom and another nice one out front.

Just returned from our first visit to California from Southern Ontario, Canada. We stayed April 27- May 2.

Pam's Condo was small but everything that we required for a few nights in Carlsbad. It was extremely clean and had everything we required. The keyless entry is great, don't need to worry about carrying a key while travelling. No issues at all with anything in the condo. Close to the beach for walks. We dipped our toes in the water but too chilly for swimming. 2 minutes walk to restaurants and shops. Not many in the complex so it was quiet and no competition to use the bbq. So nice when travelling to have laundry facilities. We sat outside on the patio while waiting for our laundry.

Coaster train was wonderful to travel to San Diego. Nice stress free day sightseeing.

Took a drive to Anneheim to support our Canadian NHL team the Edmonton Oilers. We went early in the day to avoid heavy traffic and had a great time with what seemed like half of Edmonton Alberta.

Only downside for us and probably not for many other people and totally unrelated to the actual condo itself. We live in a reasonably small town of about 15,000 with no trains or close by airports so we did notice quite a bit of noise from the trains going through town. They seem to run late and start pretty early in the morning. However incredibly convenient to hop on one of those trains to get around so if we are ever in Carlsbad again we will bring some earplugs for sleeping.

Thanks Pam, if ever back in California we will get in touch.
