Luxury Inside The Gates LaCosta Resort

Carlsbad apartment

1 bedroom / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 3

“First class!!!” This condo is first class! The owner spared no expense to ensure that any visitor would feel like they are at a 5 star resort. This one bedroom condo is perfect for a family of four. The king size bed in the master suite is very comfortable. The queen sleeper sofa in the living room is also more comfortable than most sleeper sofas. As far as the resort itself, the shops, spa, restaurants are very close by and are within walking distance. There are also two golf courses which are amazing. The only draw back is that the resort does not allow guests at the condos to use their pools which unfortunately I was unaware until I arrived. However, the condo complex does have a pool and spa which were fair and standard, but needed to be cleaned. All in all, this condo is great and we will definitely be back!

Relaxing Getaway for Two Guesthouse in Carlsbad

Carlsbad cottage

1 bedroom / 1 bathroom / sleeps 2

“Very beautiful and comfortable.” Michele and her husband are perfect hosts. The guest house is beautifully appointed and very private. The bathroom is an experience in itself. We were treated to homemade cookies and a lovely bottle of wine. We were only there for two nights, but wished we had had more time. There is a lovely private courtyard with a fountain, making it a perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the birds. We highly recommend the Funkhouser retreat. Judy & Frank J.

“Great Place” The condo was modern and fully equipped. It's in a great location; right across the street from the beach and within walking distance of Carlsbad village. The only negative aspect is the parking- it's really tight, don't bring a van!

About Carlsbad

Like nearby Encinitas and Cardiff-by-the Sea, Carlsbad is one of the popular vacation destinations that lies along the coast of California in the northern part of San Diego County. Carlsbad is especially appealing as a laid-back summer getaway for families with children. Many of the attractions here provide great fun for little ones, and the beaches are safe, clean and sunny.

But there are plenty of activities here for adults as well. Hiking and running trails throughout the area are scenic and pleasant and provide wonderful views of San Diego's sandy sagebrush hills and cliffs along the sea.

Visit some of the museums and historic sites that preserve the area's Spanish mission past. See live music and theater at one of the many relaxed and intimate venues in Carlsbad. Go shopping in the quaint upscale market districts of Encinitas. Or, try a delicious fish taco at a beachside stand in Cardiff. And after the sun goes down, enjoy the warm, beachy energetic vibe of Carlsbad's popular nightspots.

Here are a few additional suggestions to help you plan your trip:

  • Play on the beach: Spend an afternoon on Carlsbad State Beach, a long stretch of well- maintained golden sand that's very popular with families and children. Surf, swim, rent a boat, go parasailing or just bring a good book and relax.
  • Bike along The Boulevard: The Boulevard is a popular biking and running route that winds along the entire stretch of Carlsbad State Beach.
  • Visit the Museum of Making Music: This small but fun and interactive museum showcases 100 years of American music and musical instruments.
  • Explore the Carlsbad Flower Fields: This fifty acre site houses endless award winning gardens, nurseries and cultivated fields of native blooming plants.
  • Visit the Sealife Aquarium: Learn more about Pacific coast marine life and natural history at this aquarium featuring hands on displays, live marine animals and starfish touch pools.
  • Take a trip to Legoland: Legoland is becoming an iconic American road trip destination. This popular park is a fun, quirky place to visit with children of every age.

Finding a place to stay may be the easiest part of planning your trip. There are plenty of vacation rental opportunities in Carlsbad that are perfectly matched to every preference and budget. Find an affordable condo with all the comforts of home, or rent a luxurious ocean villa a few steps from the beach with room for your friends and family.

Oceanfront Whitewater Views
Perfect location - great beach views!

Wanted a respite from the heat - near the beach with ocen views. Looked at many options and chose this one. Glad we did. Directly across from Tamarack beach - 1 min walk across PCH. Views south to Swami's and La Jolla and north to Oceanside pier. Walkable to Carlsbad 'village' or Uber for $6. Well appointed 'condo' in a highly secure complex...great underground and dedicated parking (huge deal these days in So Cal beach communities). Very comfortable and not worn out like many rentals. Very nice. Everything was great for the week - communications with owner were clear and easy. On site mgr next door is a great guy. Be warned about the only downside: with proximity comes road noise. PCH is adjacent and you will hear it. Not a big deal for us but may be for some folks.see more
Relaxing Getaway for Two Guesthouse in Carlsbad
Very welcoming, hospitable, safe, cozy, clean, and enjoyable!

We've stayed at this vacation rental several times and absolutely love it. The rental books early for the summer due to its location (close to Carlsbad Village), the amenities including full kitchen, large shower, wifi, washer/dryer, relaxing and pretty patio area. The inside is super clean and neat; everything you need is provided. The rental is in a quiet and safe neighborhood. The owners are wonderful and easy to talk to.see more
Walk to beach, 4Bdr + Playroom!
Wonderful Family Vacation Home

This is a perfect home for a family vacation. We were eight adults and one toddler with plenty of space and lots to do. This is a beautiful house, fully equipped for adults and children and is spotlessly clean. An easy walk to the beach and short drive to all the San Diego area has to offer. We’ll be back for sure.see more
5 Bedroom with Ocean Views with Jacuzzi... Steps to Tamarack Beach
The PERFECT Place

The word perfect carries a great expectation for me. Other renters could take lessons from the preparations and layout that the manager provided for this house. The spacious layout was perfect for our group of 8 women. With an open kitchen and family room and a separate dining table. We loved the bar area which lead out to the jacuzzi. The shelves in the kitchen are labeled with all of the items that are necessary to cook a gourmet meal. Every supply item that we needed to make our meals was provided from a handmixer, baking sheet, serving platters, to a crockpot for our st paddy’s day cornbeef and cabbage. There were plenty of matching glassware and dishware for a large group. The linens were top quality and plenty of towels for bathing and separate towels for the beach and jacuzzi. We didn’t use the beach chairs and umbrella but they were provided. The fireplaces are gas and were perfect for the evening chill. There were also cozy blankets provided for relaxing on the sofa or patios by the fireplace. The furnishings in the home are top quality from the art and decore to a custom game table. The location is across the street from an amazing beach and walking distance to the Calsbad Village. Great shops and restaurants. And impressive ocean views from many areas of the house. Genny was always responsive and available to answer any questions we had. We had a group of highly traveled women (maybe even a bit picky) and they were all impressed. If you rent this home you will NOT be disappointed. Safe travels.see more
