This home is ideally situated for exploring the Carlsbad area (beaches, Legoland, etc). The house had everything needed to keep 3 children entertained (games, toys, swimming). I also cooked several meals in the kitchen and on the grill and was not at a loss for anything in terms of kitchen equipment. If you have very young children, the house provides cribs, dining chairs and an array of toys. Our kids loved the ping pong table and foosball (when they were not in the pool). We would definitely stay here again on our next trip down to the area.


The perfect vacation in the perfect home!

We just completed the perfect vacation in the perfect home for us. Great pool and spa, great toys and equipment for the children, game room, kitchen, fire pit, outdoor eating spots, everything! And, of course, great location…..close to so many beaches, , Legoland, Flower Fields, tide pools, seals, restaurants, and the zoo. We did it all. Breakfasts at the Beach Plum should not be missed. This home has everything you need for a wonderful time with your family. The kitchen is stocked so well with all essentials. We made special memories that will be with us forever. Destry and William have done a great job making this home perfect.


This home was one of the best!

We have used VRBO many times, from Hawaii to Italy and this home was one of the best. Close to lego land and all the San Diego parks. Everything you could possibly need for a baby or toddler and the older kids loved the ping pong, and the pool. The pool was large, warm and deep enough at one end to practice their diving. We really appreciated the fencing around the pool to keep the toddler safe. The home is very well stocked with beach gear, toys, crib, kitchen items and tons of towels. The owners were so gracious and always immediately available for any questions. If you are planning a trip with young children you won’t be disappointed in this property, our kids are already begging to come back.

We stayed at La Costa Paradiso in Carlsbad for two weeks in July. There were 10 in our party, with 4 kids under 8. We had a great vacation and the house had everything we needed. The pool and hot tub in the backyard were a great hit plus the upstairs loft, complete with Xbox, was ideal for the kids to wind down after a long day out while the adults enjoyed a glass of wine downstairs. We visited Legoland, sea world, zoo, safari park and Disneyland and the location of the house was excellent for all. Destroy, the owner, was excellent to deal with and always got back to us promptly to answer any questions.

I can highly recommend this property, particularly for families with children, as the house exceeded our expectations and had everything you need for a great vacation.
