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.

                                                              Amazing house for a family vacation!

                                                              We feel SO lucky that we found this amazing house on VRBO. We came to Carlsbad because we were taking our three kids (4, 2, 1) to Legoland. However, we also wanted to be close to the beach. We found everything we were looking for and more in this house. It has an AMAZING playroom right off of the kitchen stocked full of toys for all ages (bins of legos, coloring book, foosball table, huge kid table for projects, puzzles, lego duplo, workbooks, doll house, baby toys, books, play house, etc etc). The adults would hang out and supervise from the kitchen while the kiddos spent a lot of time playing with the new-to-them toys. In terms of accommodations - this house is set up wonderfully for a family with young kids. They had a high chair, a crib with a freshly laundered crib sheet and mattress pad, a pack and play, a toddler potty, toddler step stools, a baby bath tub, a stroller, baby gates at the top of their stairs, a removable bed rail for one of the beds. I seriously can't think of one baby/toddler/little kid thing you'd need that they didn't have available, clean, and in good working order. Their tv even had netflix set up which we used to put on cartoons for the kids. We had two adult couples (us and the grandparents) and three kids and we had plenty of space and privacy. The house is only about a block from the beach and they have a wagon (the kids rode in it) and tons of beach toys and beach towels. We'd do legoland in the morning and then the beach in the evening. After the kids went to bed (early after a long day), the adults would grill and hang out around the fire pit. Everything was easy to use and amazing. It was the perfect family friendly vacation. The owners were wonderful, responsive, reasonable. It was amazing all around. If we come back to Legoland, we'll for sure try to stay here again.

                                                              This was a last minute trip and the condo was well worth it. The renovation was nice and everything was in immaculate condition. The kitchen had everything we needed for the few meals we decided to cook. It was more than enough for us. Prior to arrival, management called to let us know that the room was ready and to make sure we went to the right room. If we had questions, they were answered immediately. Thanks for the great place!!
