2 bedroom, 1 bath house in center of Village - sleeps 4-6
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.
Why Owner 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 I 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.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great location for a group with multiple families with several CUTE little cottages that share a courtyard area.
The awful train horn made for early mornings (we were so tired after the beach days we sleep thru the horn blasts at night). And the construction guys on the huge Bldg next door made sure we were all up with the sun every morning.
Adorable Cottage with all the necessities. About 4 blocks to the beach, 10min walk. Located close to downtown for walking distance to many restaurants & shops.
Great cottage with a few hiccups
My family and I had a great time at this Carlsbad cottage. It is in the perfect location near many wonderful shops and restaurants. Best of all, it is only a few blocks from the beach!
Things (besides the location) that we liked about the cottage: greenery in the courtyard, charming style, high ceilings, nice patio, equipped with all needed kitchen supplies, laundry on site, the beach items that were provided (umbrella, chairs, sand toys, towels, wagon), and the feeling that we were in our own little beach house.
Added bonus for anyone with a plug in electric car: we were able to charge our car at night right across the street in a public parking lot.
Things that didn't go so well: we were never able to get the wireless to work during our entire stay (5 days) and the host wasn't very proactive in trying to help. Also, as some people mentioned, it is pretty close to the train tracks so there are a lot of trains honking and rattling the place day and night. My kids were able to sleep through it though so it didn't really bother us much.
Overall, we loved our vacation here and would love to come back and stay again!
Very cozy and it is right in middle of the town
The place was really convenient for dining and for shopping in town. The kitchen had all that we needed for our cooking in the “home”. The bathroom is small and does require some shifts, but not really a problem. The only problem we had was the small electric heater in the living room did not work properly, and the smaller room’s bed and mattress really should be replaced...also the room could use a door hanger hook to put hanging items on (no closet). Apparently the grill had not been cleaned and scraped off after its last usage, but that was not such a big deal to take care of before we bar-b quad. Overall the location and the facility were ideal and average these issues. We would definitely try and stay on the property again....but would really encourage the replacement of the small bedroom bed/mattress.
Cozy with great location
Nice walks to beach and in the heart of Carlsbad Village. Comfortable cozy cottage
Well kept and great location.
Had a musty odor when you first arrive but clean and had all the amenities, especially in the kitchen. The badgers on the roof provided entertainment every evening, the owner, the housekeeper and groundskeeper were all super friendly. My only preference would be to have a closet so we don’t have to live out of our suitcases on the floor but I would definitely recommend this place to others.
Location, location, location--this cottage is perfect. Close for beach walks, shopping, restaurants, and night life. You could literally walk to everything and have plenty of selection! Yet quiet and peaceful.
The cottage is fully equipped and has wonderful outside seating areas that are quiet and peaceful. Fully equipped kitchen.
