We escaped from snow, snow, snow to this Oasis! What a great time to tour San Diego area and what a perfect house to do it from. We loved the heated pool and whirlpool. Heat pool is definitely needed in winter for pure enjoyment. We never turned the heat on inside- but loved the electric fire place. Our kids (3,5,9,12,15) enjoyed the pool everyday- even when it was 55 degrees out. My kids sleep with fans as white noise and the owner went to trouble to find us one for each bedroom! Thanks so much for letting us enjoy your winter escape. Grocery store, Starbucks, Brueggers, Broken Yolk within 5 minutes of house. Great area to jog, explore, and hike! We fell in love with In and Out Burger also about 9 minutes from the house. 30 minutes to Torrey Pines, Airport and Zoo, but only 9 minutes with traffic lights to LEGOLAND. We also visited LA for the day – that took us about 1:45 minutes with traffic there and 2 hours home at rush hour. Truly memorable vacation. The 9 of us each had 2 internet devices each (excessive I know- kindles, iphones, computers, etc.). The wireless internet was not strong enough for each of us to stream shows/movies at night- not a complaint of the house or from the parents- but from the children/teens within the home! There was satellite TV in every room with plenty of channels and DVDs- but my kids are used to Netflix, Prime, and all the Streaming movies they can get their hands on! They will live- ha! I love VRBO. We will be back.
Our family has used VRBO listings in the past but this house was absolutely perfect and allowed us to have a relaxing and fun vacation as a family. We decided to stay in Carlsbad for an entire month and allow our children to come and go as their schedules permitted. The house was spotless and completely stocked with all the amenities you would ever need. The pool was clean and the yard was beautiful and kept in pristine condition. There was a spacious covered area that allowed us to sit and visit while our two grandchildren swam. We BBQ-ed and enjoyed the nice pool furniture. The house was perfect for our large family. We ate together and enjoyed cooking in the beautiful kitchen. We loved the large family room upstairs and used it often to watch movies and play games. We were close enough to the beach that we went almost every day and enjoyed the beautiful coastline. This house offered some special and much needed toys and baby necessities. We had three little ones that used all of the baby equipment. The T.V’s were big and worked without a hitch and we all enjoyed the high speed internet. The neighborhood was nice and we were close to the grocery store and some fun restaurants. Towels and sand toys for the beach and a ping pong table and foose ball table were all fun to play at the house. We couldn’t recommend this home highly enough. The owners were quick to address any concerns or problems and easy to contact. We are planning another extended stay in a year or two and wouldn’t go anywhere else!
We chose this house for a Spring Break getaway with our 2 teenagers in advance of a new baby being born in July. The house looks just like the pictures, the location is easy to find and it is close enough to the freeway that it does not take that long to get anywhere. We paid to heat the pool which helped the boys enjoy it but being that it was only April it was still a little chilly but teenagers are tough. The house has all of the amenities you need to cook, BBQ, do laundry etc. We did 1 day at the Zoo, another at Seaworld, another at a Padre game and the rest of the time we just hung out and enjoyed ourselves. There is a wonderful coffee shop (not Starbucks) in the Vons shopping center that we enjoyed most mornings! Thanks again for everything and if/when our travels bring us back to San Diego we will definitely stay at the house with the Red Umbrella!
We really enjoyed staying at your home. It was close to the amusement parks we wanted to go to. The beach was just a short drive and it was fun to have all the beach toys, chairs, coolers and towels that we needed right at the house to be able to enjoy the beach. Our whole family enjoyed being able to have several relaxing days just at the house. Our family really loved having our own private pool and hot tub to play in! There were so many fun pool toys and great patio furniture that we spent hours just relaxing and playing. This house was set up nice for the 8 of us to sleep and eat in. The beds were really comfortable and the kitchen had so many appliances and dishes. We were easily able to cook our own meals for the 8 of us. The grocery store was also close by. We appreciated the cleanliness of the home and liked how well everything was set up for us to feel right at home. We would love to stay here again and would definitely recommend this home for families. Thanks, Chrissy
Our family of 7 spent a week here from July 19th . We had a wounderful week, in this beautiful home. We spent most of the week in the house because we enjoied it so much. We really liked the pool area, and sitting around the fire pit in the night. The owner was very helpful, and responded very quickly if we had any question. The Ping pong table was great fun for both children and adults.
Our family of 10 spent the week of July 4th at this property. It is in a great location and very convenient to all the local attractions, shopping, and beaches. The whole property is very family friendly with pool fencing and baby gates for the stairs – the layout worked well for our two toddler grandsons. We lived out by the pool and patio and really enjoyed sitting around the fire pit each night. The only drawback for our large family (we had to use the room for our toddler)was that the upstairs fourth bedroom is quite small and does not have a window for ventilation. They do have a floor fan you can use, but it still was very warm. The owner was very helpful and responsive when we had a question about the wifi connection.
