About Timothy

We are a family of 6, living in Oregon. Timothy grew up surfing in San Diego and has dreamed of someday returning to the sun, the beach and to his family. This condo is our first step toward that dream! Although the condo is not large enough for the 6 of us, we have a plan so that we can all enjoy a little time in our paradise!

Timothy purchased this condo in 2013

Why Timothy chose Carlsbad

After driving the coastline looking for the ideal spot, we drove into Carlsbad Village, looked at the condo and we just knew it was right!. It has the same small, quaint, safe feel of the community of our Oregon beach house.....unique and artsy, fun blend of old and new, casual, friendly.....with one distinguishing factor: SUN!

What makes this condo unique

This place is in the heart of the best beach community in San Diego County. This condo is in a small complex and feels like a home, rather than a large corporate condo complex. The Village has numerous restaurants, boutique shops, amazing beaches, super friendly people and is centrally located to many activities North and South. There is a certain vibe here that can only be experienced. Come check it out.

Clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was as-advertised and in a perfect location to access all that Carlsbad has to offer. The communication I received from the owner was timely and professional. I highly recommend this apartment to future travelers.

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We will be returning to this unit. It was just a quick get away for my husband and I. Tim, the owner was very responsive and just very easy to communicate with. The unit was sparkling clean and quite inviting once you enter. We enjoyed a quick walk to the beach and there is a massive array of local restaurants within a few blocks. Coyote is a great, inexpensive place to listen to live music and enjoy drinks and dinner. I would only note, the parking is very narrow, which isn't hardly anything to concern yourself with, unless you're like us and drive an over-sized lifted truck. It took a few minutes but we got it in. I cannot wait to come back soon.

Lovely Small Condo in beautiful Carlsbad

  • 4 of 5

I arrived late at this condo and due to some weather wear, rusty screen doors, trim needed paint etc. I did not get the best first impression of the place. I was traveling alone so I was especially cautious. Once I got the door open and walked inside I was pleasantly surprised how lovely it was. Very Clean, furniture all goes together, and everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Short walk to the beach. Close to the freeway, restarants, small shops.

Only thing I can suggest is that they supply more bath towels and especially hand towels and wash cloths.

All beach supplies are furnished, chairs, beach towels, toys. Kitchen is well supplied with cooking utensils etc.

Timothy, the owner, responded to my requests in a timely manner and provided all the information I needed for a pleasant stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Having a beach house requires maintenance. Occasionally I need to spray WD-40 in the key hole to keep things lubricated. We want to paint the security door but the homeowners association is planning on painting the whole we wait. There should have been extra towels in the vanity drawers the bathroom. I will remind the housekeepers to double check. Thank you for letting me know about these items so I can take care of it. Best regards. :-).

I will be back!

  • 4 of 5

What a gem. I had a short amount of time to put a trip together. Timothy was prompt in replying to my request and making it work. I had a computer issue while paying for the condo, and he gave me an option to work around it - it was stress free! Just what I was looking for. The place is nice and easy. Easy 2 minute walk to the beach. The location is next to a great shopping area and a cool restaurant, Coyote, which has good food and live music every day. Don't miss it! The condo's are built on the property of a man who came here from Australia in 1928 and bought land up and down the coast...then sold it off bit by bit. You will see his family house in the pictures. It is also available to rent! Enjoy!

Great location. Super clean.

  • 4 of 5

This unit was incredibly clean and well appointed (although we didn't use the kitchen this trip.) The furniture was comfortable and looked fairly new. Easy check-in/check-out and communication with the owner was straightforward and responsive. The unit is in a great location and we never needed to use our car once we parked. Our only complaint would be that it was hot. We happened to be in Carlsbad during a weekend with unusually high humidity, especially for a beach community in October. The unit doesn't have AC, which admittedly most units do not in the area, nor is it likely needed very often. But being on the second floor, it was hot. We utilized all the fans and had the windows opened at night, but it made for hot sleeping. As long as the weather is not too hot, you'll have a very comfortable stay here!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. El Nino certainly has affected the weather this year with several 3-4 day windows of unusually hot and humid weather. It has even rained !!! Typically this time of year we typi9cally get Santa Ana weather, which is dry air from the desert. Even when hot, it is very pleasant at the beach. We've thought about installing a small window AC unit, but in reality, it would be used only about 2 weeks a year......... We may reconsider. Thanks for your valuable input! Best.

Carlsbad Village is the ideal base from which you can easily access sites and activities to the North, in the Los Angeles area (Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Universal Studios) and South, in San Diego (LEGOLAND, Sea World, San Diego Zoo and Wildlife Safari). A short 1 hour drive gets you to either city for your adventures and then return to your haven in Carlsbad Village. No car? The Coaster takes you straight to downtown San Diego to enjoy the Gas-lamp district and PetCo Park, home of the San Diego Padres. From there, you can hop aboard the Trolley to visit Balboa Park or Qualcomm Stadium, home of the San Diego Chargers.
