Make Yourself at Home in a Beachfront Carlsbad Vacation Rental

Carlsbad is a lovely suburb of San Diego, and it is known for its great beaches as well as for its proximity to all that the major metropolitan area has to offer. In fact, it is located almost equidistant between San Diego and Los Angeles, which gives you a world of opportunities to enjoy while on your vacation. With a beachfront Carlsbad vacation home, you will be just steps from the gorgeous beaches that may have enticed you to spend your vacation here, and you will enjoy all of the comforts of home as well. For example, many vacation homes in Carlsbad have large decks with spectacular views, full kitchens, private bedrooms, covered parking and other features.

Outdoor Recreation

The weather in southern California can be amazing any time of year, and this means that you will want to spend your days away from your California vacation home and outdoors. There is much to see and do, including visiting beaches such as South Ponto Beach, South State Beach, Tamarack State Beach, Terramar Beach and others. You can also golf at venues such as the Rancho Carlsbad Golf Course, the Omni La Costa Golf Course, the Crossings Golf Course and several others. Hiking on trails such as the Hidden Canyon Trail, Veterans Park Trail, the Hosp Grove Trail and a few others are also popular ways to spend time while in the area.

Attractions

When you stay at your San Diego vacation home, you will be just a short drive from all that Los Angeles and San Diego have to offer, but there is also much to see and do in the local area. For example, if you are traveling with kids, you will want to visit the LEGOLAND resort or the SEA LIFE Aquarium. There is also a K1 race track in the area. Other attractions include Flower Fields, the Gemological Institute of American and more. Sea World and The San Diego Zoo are nearby to keep the whole family entertained all week long.

Dining

Dining out at new restaurants is always an enjoyable activity while on a trip, and you will not be disappointed with the selection of restaurants available in the Carlsbad area. For example, you can check out menu options at Norte Mexican Food and Cocktails, Vigilucci's Seafood and Steakhouse and Sammy's Woodfired Pizza. You can also savor dishes at The Landings Restaurant or the Grand Deli sandwich shop for additional options.

Weather

Carlsbad has an almost stunning climate year-round, making it ideal for any type of getaway that you are thinking about taking. The average high temperature ranges from 64 in the winter to 74 in the summer. With a semi-arid Mediterranean climate, there are more than 260 sunny days to enjoy each year. Rainfall is not common, and the area averages approximately 11 inches of rain each year. Freezing temperatures can occur in the winter, but they are rare and are typically associated with inland areas rather than areas immediately off of the coast.

How to Get There

There are numerous ways to reach Carlsbad, and all are relatively easy. You can fly directly into the local airport, which is the McClellan-Palomar Airport. You can also fly into Los Angeles to the north or San Diego to the south and rent a car to travel the rest of the way via road. The city is located at the convergence of Interstate 5 and Highway 78, which adds to the convenience of those who are traveling into the Carlsbad area via car.

Everything was clean and in good working order. The landlord was very good to communicate with and did not hesitate to answer any questions. If we ever vacation in Carlsbad again this is the place we're going to stay.

Paradise Shores certainly looked like it would be perfect online....and it WAS !!!!!! The house was beautiful, clean, spacious, and full of any amenity we needed. There were no surprises...except for a "surprise proposal" which was a success (she said yessssss). The entire transaction from booking, to paying, to check-in, to check-out were all flawless. A+ for communication by Seabreeze Rentals. Thanks for a memorable stay👍
