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.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2014
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 little cottages. especially for a group traveling together!
This cottages are great! We had a group of 20 so rented the 4 back cottages for a week. Everyone had their own space and we would gather out side to all hang out. Close walk to the village, restaurants, shops. Not too bad of a walk to the beach. Beach chairs, umbrellas, towels and wagons provided. Cottages are smaller than they appear in pictures, but were sufficient. 6 people in Trestles would be tight. We had 4. Swami was definitely a great cottage, said could sleep 8 and that is true. Would definitely stay here again.Not 5 stars because of mostly small things. Only 1 cottage had working icemaker. Troubles with AC not hooked up right in Swami so kept having to adjust the pipe to exhaust. Broken umbrella and beach chair in Tamarack cottage.All in all a great time!
Great location, but needs some TLC
Pros: The location is great, and the bungalows are adorable. The private patio and grille are a great perk. The A/C unit in the living room was very helpful for combatting the hot afternoons. The owner’s assistant, Deb, was responsive and helpful. The unit is tucked away from loud street noise. The train nearby was comforting to listen to. There were trash bags, sandwich bags, and basic oils and spices provided, which was nice. There’s an ice maker in the freezer, which worked perfectly.
Cons: WiFi should not be advertised; it is almost non-existent. Netflix was never available, and the connection was poor for our entire week stay. The propane tank for the grille ran out within minutes of use, (though Deb was helpful with replacing it the next day). The couch needs to be replaced ASAP. It was completely broken in the center, and was covered with a blanket upon our arrival, to cover the large indentation.
Overall, the experience was pleasant. Our frustrations only came about in the evenings, after spending our days out and about in the charming town and on the lovely beach. I highly recommend finding a better internet provider, and taking a trip to the nearby Goodwill for a couch replacement.
Perfectly situated in downtown Carlsbad
This our 4th time staying in this great complex. There is seven little cottages situated in the center of town right behind Pizza Port in downtown Carlsbad. My family and I love staying at this location when we visit Carlsbad because it is conveniently located 2 blocks from the beach and the owner provides a wagon with everything you will need for a fun day at the beach. It is also right behind a family friendly pizza joint my family and I love to visit after a long day at the beach. It is also a very short walk to a great cafe named Cafe Topes, where my wife and I go for the best breakfast and coffee. The owner is extremely accommodating and friendly. His name is Russell and always tries to make your stay memorable. If your a repeat visitor, he will sometimes offer you a free night stay if possible. Which he did for us on our most recent stay. Would recommend to anyone planning a visit to Carlsbad.
Very clean. Great host. Wonderful Stay!
Thank you Russell for an amazing get away to Carlsbad. The complex of cottages is tastefully landscaped and Trestles (our cottage) was stylishly decorated, squeaky clean, and stocked with all the basic kitchen necessities to cook and serve a wonderful meal inside or on the grill. The patio was perfect for a casual family dinner with my husband and and two little kids. The weather was perfect and there were many windows and a nice breeze to keep the cottage cool. We went to the beach every day and especially appreciated the boogie boards, umbrella, beach towels and toys that were provided for our use with the rental. The beach, a wonderful used bookstore, and many restaurants were a short walk from our cottage. The laundry room and game shelf were a nice addition to the complex. The neighborhood felt very safe and comfortable for my family and Russell and Veronica were very helpful if we had a request or questions. The other tenants were respectful of noise. The train was a bit close but it did not detract from our near perfect stay at Trestles! We will definitely stay here again next time we visit Carlsbad.
I am upset with my experience at this place. I was put in the wrong cottage per my rental agreement and it apparently had a typo. So another family was in the cottage i picked and paid for. The owner never returned any of my calls or texts. Very unprofessional and shady.
Everything we expected and then some
The property was just as described and the reviews were mostly spot on resulting in this vacation rental completely meeting our expectations. Cottages are extremely cute and very well appointed inside. Our main objective with this property was location in Carlsbad Village and here is where this property exceeded. Very short walk to the beach, restaurants and pubs. You do not need a car if you plan on enjoying the Village. Inside space was well done (recently remodeled) and large private outdoor patio was where spent a majority of our time.
Property manager was responsive but not obtrusive. Overall very well done and we definitely on visiting Village Carlsbad again!
