Our Favorite Things To Do Nearby

The Beach!!! Carlsbad State Beach was rated one of the top 10 beaches in the US by Traveler Magazine and is located only a few minute drive away. So much to do at the beach: Dig your toes in the sand, get a tan, go for a swim, surf, boogie board, play volleyball, explore the tide pools teeming with life, make sandcastles with the kids, join the joggers and bikers along the seawall, enjoy a bonfire with friends and family, or just sit on a bench and people watch! Just remember to bring your sunscreen!

Visit the luxurious Day Spa at La Costa Resort - We love to spend time at the Day Spa. Men and women have their own facilities each with their own indoor Sauna, Steamroom, and Jacuzzis. Outside you can meet up with your spouse by the pool, roman waterfalls, and outdoor jacuzzi. We love to wrap up our spa days with a good massage and then eat at one of the chic restaurants in the resort. The resort is gorgeous and perfect for a romantic date or a girl's day. (website hidden) it.

Shopping: The beach house is about 5 minutes away from a huge outdoor shopping mall called the Carlsbad Premium Outlets. This mall has both affordable and high end stores like: Coach, Dooney and Burke, Juicy Couture, Lacoste, Barneys New York, Ralph Lauren, BCBG Max Azria, Banana Republic, DKNY, Gap, BabyGap, Carters, and Crate and Barrel.
My favorite place to shop, however, is "The Forum" about 10 minutes South off Leucadia BLVD. They have a Z Gallerie, Sur La Table, Bed Bath and Beyond, Anthropologie, H&M, Urban Outfitters, Black House White Market, Mac Cosmetics, Ulta, and an Apple Store. Also nearby is a Target and plenty of amazing restaurants!

World Class Golfing at: Aviara's Four Seasons (Carlsbad), La Costa Resort (Carlsbad), The Crossings at Carlsbad, Encinitas Ranch (Encinitas), and world famous Torrey Pines (La Jolla).

Dining Out: We love dining out so we will leave you with a list of our favorite restaurants and where to find them. However if you're just looking for something convenient, restaurants under 5 minutes away include: Islands, King's Fish House, BJ's Brewery, Karl Strauss, Claim Jumper, TGIF's, PF Changs, and Bellefleur (amazing Sunday Brunch!!). There are also several fast places nearby like Starbucks, Rubio's, and California's Exclusive In-n-Out Burger (if you haven't tried an In-n-Out Burger then you really haven't lived).

For Kids: Legoland, Legoland Water Park, Sealife Aquarium, Playwerx (an indoor jungle gym in Carlsbad), San Diego Botanic Garden in neighboring Encinitas (cheap admission but tons for little kids/toddlers to do), Wild Wonders (kids and adults can "tame" their curiosity for "wildlife". Live tours, & interactive programs, 150 animal ambassadors & educators will take you on a dynamic adventure you won't forget.) La Costa Resort Waterpark, and also a variety of beautiful public playgrounds including some on the beach.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • This was a great place to stay for our 1 week family vacation. We have two little ones 4 and 2 years old, so it was nice to have a separate room for them to share. Cynthia was so great to even have toys in the rental for our kids to play with, which was a big hit. We ended up cooking/making most of our meals at the rental and the kitchen had almost all the basic cooking items. The location of the rental was convenient, since we visited Legoland, local beaches, and San Diego during our stay. Cynthia was super responsive and checked in on us to see if we needed anything, as well as delivered us morning pastries the second morning of our stay. Overall, I would highly recommend this rental.

  • We had an amazing visit in Cynthia's beautiful cottage. The home was perfectly located in Carlsbad near literally everything you could imagine. Great neighborhood, plenty of space, quite and gorgeous on the inside!! We will definitely stay here again!

    April 2014
  • Cynthia was very accommodating and indulged us with a surprise doorstep treat our first morning. Check out time was a little early (10) but Cynthia graciously allowed us some extra time to pack our things. We would stay again.

  • This is a beautiful little cottage attached to the main house so one bedroom may get a little family noise. It's clean, well appointed and comfortable. The location is good close to shops and beach but you do need to drive. Communication is good and helpful from start to finish. I would highly recommend this airbnb.

    March 2014
  • A beautiful place to stay with our friends! All the comforts of home and easy access to lots of shopping and markets. The place was clean and neat, and had a kitchen stocked with all the necessities for easy breakfast making before our day. Neighborhood is cute and very quiet, car was able to be parked right by the door for super easy access. Would definitely highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a place to stay in San Diego!!

  • My girlfriend and I had a lovely staycation as we became acquainted with Carlsbad. This cottage far exceeded our expectations and was well worth it! The house had everything we needed from the fully stocked kitchen to linens and extra blankets. Close by to everything Carlsbad has to offer. The cottage was very private while Cynthia was just a text away at all times. She was extremely nice and helpful offering re condemnations for everything and even brought us the most divine croissants our first morning. Zero complaints, would recommend this place to anyone! We will be back. :-)

  • Sweet little cottage. Felt very private. Was very clean and pleasant. The kitchen was well stocked, the bed was comfy. Very close to everything, yet in a quiet neighborhood. Pleasant for my morning walk. Thank you!

  • My parents and I stayed in Cynthia's sweet cottage. It's decorated beautifully and is in a very quiet safe neighborhood. It was especially great for us since my brother lives about 1 1/2 miles away which made it super convenient - it's also very close to downtown Carlsbad and the ocean.
    I would definitely stay here again. Cynthia was very accommodating and communicative!

    October 2013
  • Being my first airbnb experience, Cynthia was an excellent host with great communication and ease in stay. Cynthia even brought us over more house supplies as we had used all that was initially given. The 2bedroom house was very clean with everything we needed to stay including a fully equipped kitchen and enough room to sleep 5 grown men. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a clean, modern and convenient house that is still very affordable. Thanks again Cynthia!! We will be back

  • Our recent stay couldn't have been any better. This cottage has everything necessary to cook,eat,sleep, and enjoy your vacation. They even let us store our surfboards in the backyard, which was very helpful. The home was conveniently located close to multiple restaurants and grocery stores.Cynthia was extremely accommodating and a great communicator who promptly responded to emails, texts and calls. I recommend staying at this cottage to anyone who is planning on visiting the Carlsbad area.
