“Perfect family vacation!”
The house was perfect! We loved the big open kitchen, the pool, and the location! We will be back and this house is our first choice!!! We walked to the beach and walked to the shops and restaurants. The pool was clean, warm, and our children loved it! For a vacation with our teenagers...perfect!!!
“Cute house, fun downtown Carlsbad location”
Here's the good parts: The house is very pretty and as nice as the pictures. The pool and outdoor shower were both in great shape and my family loved them. The location and proximity to the beach and downtown Carlsbad made our vacation very easy and convenient. Carlsbad is a great town and there is so much to do around there. We could have stayed another week easily. The downsides: Its very close to the train station so you can hear the trains literally all day. They are less frequent at night so we slept okay but it was very annoying at times. The house had some maintenance problems. The blinds in one bedroom broke on the first day, the lock to the laundry room didn't work, and we had a small ant problem. The property mgmt company did a great job of addressing all the problems, but I was frustrated to have to keep calling them back. Also, usually when I stay in vacation condos, I find lots of basic cooking supplies left by other guests...ie salt, pepper, sugar. This place had nothing other than plates, utensils and some basic cook ware. So I had to buy a lot of stuff at the grocery to do even simple cooking. Wound up being a much more expensive grocery run than I anticipated. I left all of the spices that I bought there so I hope other people can get the benefit of them.
“Excellent Family getaway”
House was perfect with 2 little kids as there are no stairs to worry about. Everything is in walking distance from the house, including the beach, train, restaurants. There is a great little coffee shop a 2 minute walk from the house. The vibe and pace of Carlsbad is perfect for a relaxing family break. There a few great surf/boogie board rental shops and the beaches are awesome. Only downside is the pool is not warm enough to be used in the winter months. Our 3 year old went in but it was only for about 20 minutes. A pool heater would be a great addition to this rental. Would highly recommend Carlsbad/Oceanside for a getaway.
Great location. Close to the beach. Wonderful, clean, cozy house. would stay there again. loved it!!
“still waiting for your office to send our clothes back”
clean house, near RR tracks, close to beach. no complaints on property.
This is the 2nd year we have rented this house . We love the location and how secluded yet close to everything . I would say on a negative note the owners need to do some fix ups around the house. The kitchen was barely stocked this time around. We did call McLain Propertys and they are wonderful at restocking what is needed. The Master Bedroom needs a new Mattress... we sink in to the middle and not very comfortable at all
“Our stay was very enjoyable and the home contained many amenitie”
Service was excellent from owner and property manager. The home was easy to get around in with plenty of windows for light. It was located in downtown Carlsbad Village and everything was within walking distance. Every amenity you could think of. We liked big screen tvs with HD and DVR.
“Modern, clean, and private, this pool cottage lets you walk to t”
We were pleased with the condition and cleanliness of the property. It was tastefully remodeled and decorated to make use of the home's design and architecture. There were a few minor issues (the blinds on the bay window in the bedroom did not work and although the web site advertised "spa" products, there was only one set of tiny shampoos, etc. - not enough for one night with the three of us - this shouldn't be promoted on the website and the shower curtain liner needs replacing) However, this is very minor. The home felt private and tucked away. We enjoyed seeing hummingbirds everyday around the pool and in the side yard. We could walk to the beach, to eat, and to shop, but when we tired of the crowds and the activity, the home was a peaceful retreat. The train track runs right behind the home (one house over) and while that could be convenient for people who want to ride it, the noise was definitely a consideration. Multiple trains ran throughout the day and night. Overall though, I would choose this house again despite the train. My daughter slept through it. The fireplaces were very nice to have with the cool nights, and the beds and furniture were comfortable. There were plenty of towels, dishes, pots & pans, but you will need your own paper products, laundry & dish soap. The oven is old and took forever to heat, but the stove was fine and there is an outdoor grill. There was a washer and dryer around back and a dishwasher in the kitchen. There was a giant lemon tree full of fruit and we enjoyed lemonade. This is a busier area than we realized, and having an off street driveway for parking was important. We considered a condo right on the main road with a view of the beach, but this was definitely the better option for us beacuse the fenced in yard and pool area made it very private and homelike. I would recommend this to families or anyone who wants a place to retreat back to after activities.
“It was an awesome 10 days of vacation/rest!”
We had an amazing vacation here... very relaxing..close to everything, happen to be there for the art and craft show, which was very fun ... solar pool, so it was a bit chilly in april, train is also a little annoying, but no fault to house/rental...The McLain Properties was fabulous to work with...we were able to stay longer and they were very accommodating. Would definitely stay here again!
A lovely home, well equipped and designed. Good quality furniture and appliances (washer and dryer is a little old). Pool and outdoor shower are wonderful. Walking to the beach was perfect as well as to the down town area. Didn't appreciate the next door neighbors and the train is quite loud.
