The Space

The cottage offers a peek of the Pacific Ocean, which can be seen from the porch and cozy living room. The home is newly updated and furnished with a variety of upscale and vintage pieces. It offers relaxed cozy comfort in the heart of Carlsbad.

The light filled space opens to French doors and an expansive redwood deck. Perfect for lounging the day away or recovering from a day at the beach. Visit the hens located on the east side of the garden for a special treat, fresh eggs, when they are laying. Peruse our gourmet cook books for that special meal you've been craving.

We welcome you to our home and assure you will enjoy your stay!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our stay at the Charming Beach Cottage was great. The house was old, but quaint and decorated with lovely antiques. It was as pictured, and we really enjoyed our stay there. The yard was great for the kids to play in, and taking care of the chickens was no problem. It gave the kids something to do. Great experience.

  • Our stay at the Charming Beach Cottage was great. It was everything we hoped for. It was as pictured, and very comfortable. The yard was really nice for the kids to play in, and we didn't mind taking care of the chickens at all. It was a fun thing for the kids to do.

  • Such a cute little place that matched the photos in the listing. It was a little further from the beach than we expected, about a 20-30 minute walk, but not a problem. I loved the chickens, especially Blondie, who I held daily :) There was a nice walking trail nearby and overall it was just a quiet, peaceful place. The house was clean and simple. We had a quick stay, but would definitely stay again in the future!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sylvia's lovely home. The interior of the house is both charming and practical and we had everything we needed from kitchen items to beach gear. The property the house sits on is nicely sized (for Southern California) and boasts a great deck and fire pit. And as others have said the chickens were a huge hit with my toddler and having fresh eggs for breakfast was amazing! The house is located within a bike ride to Carlsbad Village and an easy drive to great beaches, shopping and eating with super easy freeway access.

    Sylvia (email hidden) and was very honest and helpful. We'd love to come back. My daughter keeps talking about our "vacation house" a week later!

  • We would definitely recommend this home to other guests! The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed (including a great espresso machine), and we could get in a 30 minute walk to the beach (or drive) from this location. There is a large open space behind their property which provides a place of solitude...very peaceful setting... Red Tailed Hawks circling above...beautiful!

  • Sylvia's place was perfect for our Christmas getaway. It was very comfy and kid friendly, not to mention the great views and trails nearby. We'd definitely come back!

  • We loved the location, the chickens, the quiet, and the great taste and care with which this place was put together. Sylvia was very helpful with local tips as well. I highly recommend her place.

  • The home was lovely and cozy at the same time, and we felt quite at home. Sylvia was a great hostess, and my boys enjoyed interacting with her chickens. The location is close to the beach, to Legoland, to a quaint seaside village, and modern stores and shopping nearby. We would definitely stay here again.
