About Russell Bennett
I live here in wonderful Carlsbad Village with my wife and children, we love being able to walk to dinner, listen to live music, ride our bikes around and enjoy the beach. I couldn't imagine a better place to experience life as a family.
Russell Bennett purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Russell Bennett chose Carlsbad Village
I purchased this property from a friend who had plans to develop it into condos, but loved the uniqueness of this amazing cottage compound and decided to bring the charm back. After fixing one after another up and many people stopping by to say how much they loved the property, I decided that sharing it was what I wanted to do and made them available as Vacation Rental.... Villagio Carlsbad Cottages. 7 individual cottages with private patios. Stay in one or multiple family can stay next to each other to be together and yet have their own space.

Property is passively managed
We were looking forward to our first vacation in Carlsbad. Check in was @ 4, but traffic had us a little behind. Around 30 minutes after check in and about 1 mile from the cottage, we get a call advising us there had been a mistake with reservations, and that we would have to stay in another cottage the first night. Imagine if we'd arrived at check in without knowing! Turns out, the reservations of the people in our reserved cottage had also been messed up. Between the two cottages, we found a broken chair, a torn pillow, a stained couch, broken blinds, and a broken divider wall. Additionally, one of the washers was broken, and the housekeeper informed me that the lock to the front gate was "always" broken.
The beach cart they brag about was missing, and I had to reach out to the property manager several times to get a back up one (we also gave up and went out to buy TP the evening after requesting it in the morning).
Not all of the cottages have AC, which we uncomfortably found out, but that's on me for assuming AC is standard.
As much as we plan to go back to Carlsbad, we won't be staying here!

Beautiful Property, Amazing Location
We stayed in Trestles Cottage and it was perfect! The cottages are located perfectly and we were able to walk just about everywhere. The cottage was clean, stocked with everything you could think of, and I loved the fact that they had a laundry facility on site. The little village of cottages was well kept. The front area was always clean and well maintained and the patios were definitely an awesome amenity. The patio had chairs so you could sit outside and enjoy the nice weather. The patio also had a wagon full of beach supplies, which was super helpful when walking to the beach. Overall the cottage was perfect and it was exactly what I had expected. The owner and his assistant were very nice and extremely helpful from the time I booked with them until the time our trip was complete. I definitely plan to reserve our cottage through them on our next trip.
Close to everything, including the beach!!!
Pros: I chose this property due to it's proximity to everything Carlsbad Village has to offer and because it is pretty close to the beach. It was really nice to have access to a grocery store as well as restaurants and shops since we were on foot. I was thrilled that the kitchen allowed us plenty of storage and all we needed to make good meals. Having a wagon, umbrella, chairs etc. for the beach was awesome, and made beach time completely relaxing.
Cons: Noise. Having only stayed at this property one time, I cannot say what the norm is. For us, however, it was noisy. I expected the train and this did not bother me, but the continual noise from the sidewalk and people staying in other cottages did not allow for much peace. We had to open the windows for a breeze but this allowed in all the noises from the guests, and their visitors. Another drawback, was that by opening the windows, we let in the ants. We did not realize how big of an issue this was until we went to lay down and realized there were ants all over in the bed. Fortunately, there were only two of us, and 3 beds, so we quickly worked around this.
I would stay here again, but would choose a different cottage, as peaceful mornings and evenings are a priority for me.
The cottage was clean,well stocked,comfortable beds.Outdoor space was very pretty. It was a great location,can walk to the beach and all the great shops and restaurants. Only negative was no closets or hooks to hang things and the train tracks were very close and noisey. We would definitely recommend these units. We had a marvelous week .
Nice location. It was a cute place and near town and beach. There were problems.
The front gates never were locked for security. This was part of the reason I chose this place. I felt much less safe. The power went out twice which is pretty frightening when you have no clue where breakers are and it is totally black inside. The house was poorly cleaned prior to our arrival. On the surface looked good but the floors were filthy. I could not walk barefoot without my feet getting black. The outdoor furniture in back was not well maintained and it was dirty. I would never sit there.i loved the cottage but the above mentioned problems would make me stay elsewhere next visit to California which is about four times a year.
