“We love this place”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We just had a great 5 night trip to this house in Carlsbad. The location is awesome, it
is close to everything but far enough away that it's very quiet. It is north of the public beaches so there were not too many people in our area. The fact that this place has
a nice big balcony and it's own private beach area really makes it.

We estimated that it was probably 900 square feet but felt much bigger due to the patio.
Everything was clean and well kept. The furniture is nice, beds were comfy enough. It's not going to blow you away inside but you're there for the beach.
The only thing I didn't notice when setting up the rental is there's not a washer and dryer in the unit. We didn't quite pack enough and ended up going to a friends place to run a couple loads. Not a big deal but wanted to make everyone else aware.
Also there appear to be 1 or 2 units above this one, they weren't occupied while we were there which was great but you may want to check with them to make sure before you rent.
The waves here are quite big on this section of beach, if you have small children that want to play in the surf, this might not be for you. Ours are 9 and 12 and they had a blast but our younger nephews had a really tough time.
Sleeps 4 comfortably, 5 in a pinch is about it.

We love that you loved the property! The walkability to the shops and restaurants in the village is one of our favorite aspects of this spot while also being secluded enough from the main Carlsbad beaches that it feels more private. This particular property does have an outdoor shower but does not have space for a washer and dryer in the unit. We strive to make sure each property is cleaned properly and provides a sense of a home-away-from-home for our guests. We look forward to you booking your next vacation with us!!

“The Property is Over Traded; of Poor Quality & Relying on Seafront Views”
Reviewed 9 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

On arrival we found the property in very poor state. The outside stairs were covered in sand and the internal cleaning was just not to standard. We immediately called the agent who brought a cleaner with her. She was equally astounded by the filth on the air ducts in the lounge and the smell in the so called pantry that also housed the bins.

The decor and quality of furniture was very poor though the owners had recently put in a 3 piece sofa set in the lounge. There was not one set of crockery (though 3 sets in the cupboards) that was not chipped. The cooker was on its last legs and the pantry smelt of waste bins. One room had a ceiling fan and the owners provided 2 stand alone small fans that were filthy and had to be cleaned before we could use them. Very very disappointing.

We say this because we were on a month's vacation in the State of California where we rented much better quality accommodation than this; at cheaper rates with excellent views. In our opinion the owners have overtraded and under invested in the property - flogging the scenic seafront views as the virtue. It would be a minimal cost to the owners to freshen and update the property to enhance guest experience and they should do this.

On a positive note the property enjoys very good ocean views and the sound of breaking waves is invigorating. Carlsbad's shopping plazas are nearby with good restaurants.

We, too, enjoy the expansive views and the invigorating sounds of the waves crashing from the large deck of this ocean-front oasis. Thank you so much for your review of this property. It is imperative to us that each tenant reach out to us within the first 24 hours with any potential concerns, as you did.

We are glad we could respond to your cleaning requests so quickly and ensure it suited your needs. Being an oceanfront property with a private beach with a tetherball court and picnic table shared with the unit above, there is not much we can do about the salt and sand from the crisp coastal offshore breezes. As listed on all of our properties, aside from a few exceptions, they do not have air conditioning but we do provide fans. Since these fans are in such high demand and high use due to an abnormally warm, borderline hot, summer season, we have had to replace them often.

We appreciate you bringing this to our attention and are glad you enjoyed your stay in our quaint seaside village.
