About This Listing
Designer Home with 3 bright and modern bedrooms and 2 attached luxury baths. Enjoy the Garden Backyard, Pool, Hot Tub, Valley Views and the nearby Beaches.
This listing is for bedrooms in my private house, the common areas are shared when I'm home.
Settle into your sunny Southern California experience in a bright, open, designer home in Carlsbad! You’ll be happy from the moment you arrive—there’s plenty of parking, and the key will be waiting for you in a lockbox so you can arrive on your own schedule.
Grab one of the surfboards provided for guests and head to the ocean. We’re just 3 miles away from Carlsbad’s beautiful, quiet beaches, a best-kept secret on the California coast with paved walkways, sea walls and top-notch facilities. Prefer sailing? Let me know! I’ll try to arrange a private cruise with a friend who owns a sailboat—for much less than companies in the area charge.
Families love the home’s central location near Legoland, SeaWorld, the San Diego Zoo and many other family adventures…ask me about them!
Afterward, come back to enjoy a California-style barbeque in the backyard. I provide the gas grill, outdoor dining table surrounded by gardens, and a fire feature for chilly evenings. And then there’s the best part of the backyard by far: a valley view hot tub! Stay and watch the lights of the valley come on and the stars start to shine overhead.
This home sleeps up to 6 guests in 3 bedrooms, two of them with attached luxury baths. My guests love that they can all stay in the same place and hang out, unlike in a hotel with separate, isolated rooms.
We’re very close to two renowned California resorts, La Costa and Aviara. In fact, we’re a popular choice for guests of weddings at these resorts, because we provide an intimate experience that feels like home.
Just like a resort guest, you have access to a free pool, tennis courts, and a fitness center—all just a half-mile away, and all included in the nightly price.
But unlike a resort, this home has a giant, gourmet kitchen with granite and stainless steel and about an acre of countertops for you to use. This includes a center island, where you can prepare a meal with fresh ingredients from the Carlsbad Village Farmer’s Market, which is a short drive away.
And we’re located in an upscale, quiet, residential neighborhood, so the area isn’t packed with tourists.
COMFORT & STYLE INSIDE
This is my home much of the time and I’ve worked hard to make it beautiful. The ultramodern space includes designer furnishings like a glass-top dining table with seating for 6 and a pair of buttery soft, tan leather couches for movie nights in the living room by the flicker of the gas fireplace.
Two other spaces for relaxing include a circle lounge chair on the terrace and a delicious hammock stretched between two trees in the garden. Take your pick!
CLOSE TO EVERYTHING
San Diego is only 30 minutes away. We’re 10 minutes from some of the best surf spots in North County. Close to Del Mar Racecourse and hundreds of options for shopping, restaurants, golf—you name it.
The hardest part will be figuring out which activities to choose!
I hope to be able to host you in Carlsbad! Contact me for available dates and booking info!

Doreen was great about communicating with us before and during our visit. The house was exactly as described. It is a bright and spacious home - perfect for our family. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful and close to markets, movie theatres and beaches. We have no complaints except to suggest that perhaps more bath and hand towels/wash cloths should have been available and a few more bed pillows. I think that such a great situation would be improved with a few more creature comforts. Thank you Doreen.

Our family had a great time staying with Doreen. It was perfect for our needs and had EVERYTHING we needed to enjoy the week. Lots of space, all the comforts of home, and an excellent host. Highly recommended for your stay if you find yourself in the area!
We really enjoyed our stay at Doreen's place. Was clean and a lot of space. We wanted to have a close access to San Diego an LA, and have a nice quiet place for the night. It was lovely house. Communication was very warm and helpful with Doreen. We would go back again there in a heart beat :)
Vida and friends
Doreen's home was very nice and new. The kitchen was huge and had everything we needed. She even had iPhone chargers our for us to use. The sofa couch was comfy. My only complaint was the home didn't have an iron. The location was great because there was a shopping complex less than two miles away with a Trader Joe's and more. Ultimately, it was a great fit for my groomsmen and I during my wedding week. I would definitely stay here again.
We came on a Business trip in a Group of 3 and felt very welcome at Doreen's home. It's a beautiful and cozy place with enough space for multiple persons travelling. Doreen's home is in a newly-built very nice neighborhood with a great view in the valley from the garden. The garden is beautiful and was often a spot for our business meetings. What we also liked very much was the huge open kitchen which is a great place to spend the evenings together next to the gas fire place in the living room. We met Doreen personally on our last day of our stay and she was a very decent and nice host. Everything worked out fine and overall we spent a great time at her place. :)
