About Marlene Carter

We are have lived in this neighborhood of Carlsbad for over 30 years and love it. Every year we go to our family home in France, and this house would be very lonely without you!

Why Marlene Carter chose Carlsbad

We have always loved this house. We knew the architect and his family many years ago, and it is one of the most unique and inviting houses in the area. We truly believe you will love it too.

What makes this house unique

Arches, hand made Mexican tiles, high knotty pine ceiling, large stone fireplace, the circular library and large downstairs master bath are what captured us. We added the patio yard to complete this home to make it so enjoyably livable.

Great home for vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was as advertised - beautiful, clean, large, well appointed, great backyard, plenty of living space for the family. The homeowner was friendly and helpful and obviously takes great care of the house. Location for Carlsbad beaches was great; in 5 minutes we were parking at South Carlsbad State Beach.

Truly a Lovely Home!

This lovely home far surpassed our expectations. We loved the decor, especially the beautiful tile floors. The property was perfect when we arrived and the owners were delightful to work with. The property manager was spot on and very helpful. We highly recommend this property to friends and relatives and look forward to a return visit next summer!

Family vacation

What a beautiful home! Our family shared this home with friends while our boys played in a baseball tournament. There was plenty of space for us all and a great patio with built in bar b que and fire pit...a great place to gather for dinner and drinks after a day of baseball and afternoon at the beach. This home has everything . We look forward to the possibility of next years visit!
