For those considering a vacation rental in Carlsbad, California, we invite you to look into Villa de Carlsbad. This two-story single family home is on a cul-de-sac in a quiet residential neighborhood, and is situated on the top of a hill with views in all directions. There is much to enjoy here: a roomy home to call your own, lush, tropical landscaping, a beautiful private pool and spa, an adjacent patio with an outdoor bar and dining under your very own “stars”.
Many attractions are only minutes away – golf, hiking, watersports and more. Restaurants, clubs and bars are near and far. Of course, other than the weather one of the greatest things that Carlsbad has to offer is its miles of beaches, soft sand and warm sun. Kids building sand castles, moms and dads lounging at the edge of the surf. Speaking of surf, yes there’s that, too. Many locals wouldn’t even think of starting their day without catching some waves. And if you have never tried it, surfing schools can get you started with lessons and equipment rentals.
For those who prefer the idea of having a roomy home all to yourself instead of cramped hotel rooms, Villa de Carlsbad is a wonderful way to “get away from it all.” Relax and do nothing. Or, use it as a base for getting out and doing so many nearby fun things. Look around our online presence and see why the real thing has so much to offer.
Villa de Carlsbad sits on the top of a hill with beautiful views in all directions. It is located in a quiet, lovely residential neighborhood (on a cul-de-sac), yet has easy access to thoroughfares and freeways. A large concrete driveway provides ample off-street parking.
The home has three full bedrooms available, along with a sleeper sofa in the family room, and can comfortably sleep eight guests. A full bath is part of the master suite, another full bath upstairs, and an additional half-bath (powder room) allow for all to prepare for the days activities without forming a bathroom queue or an “I’m first” claim. Ceiling fans in the informal breakfast area, as well as each bedroom, stir the cool coastal breezes. During cooler months, two wood-burning fireplaces add to the ambiance, as well as warm the brisk evenings.
For those who enjoy the outdoors, this house is an entertainer’s delight; great flow from within the home extends outside. The exceptionally large back yard with lush tropical landscaping also contains a diving pool and a spa, and a patio designed with leisure and relaxation in mind. The covered patio is a great place for breakfast on beautiful, cool mornings. It is also equipped with a bar, and makes the perfect place to spend the early evening hours, cocktail in hand — watch the sun set, enjoy the pool, and plan the next day’s activities (or plan to do nothing). Additionally, there are two other patio areas; one with a separate, intimate table setting next to the spa, and another area with a wood-burning fire pit, with its own seating. After dark, specialty lighting and effects provide a magical atmosphere and are all remotely controlled at your discretion.
Entry and Foyer – Double entry doors open into the foyer, with ceramic tile extending throughout the house. A skylight bathes the area with soft sunlight, and at night a chic chandelier sparkles above the stairway.
Living Room – A large living room with a wood-burning fireplace is just off the foyer. It is beautifully decorated, classic but not pretentious. A large picture window looks out over the front planter and yard, and a corner window allows bright morning sun to fill the room.
Family Room – Very comfortable with cheery colors and informal textures, it is very light and bright. Windows look out to the back yard and side patio, with views of the pool and spa. A large screen LED TV hangs above a second wood-burning fireplace.
Dining Room – A formal dining room with the table, chairs and hutch in a light wood is elegant, yet not “stuffy” and will seat six comfortably.
Kitchen – Informally elegant, while at the same time cheerfully bright. Black countertops and appliances contrast with white cabinets and lemon-yellow walls. Cooking utensils are provided, along with small electric appliances.
The adjacent breakfast area allows morning sunlight to stream through the windows and set a cheery mood for the rest of the day. Its table can seat six.
Master Suite – Soothing, cool blue tones fill the room, and a large sliding glass door allows access to the side patio. Oversized, with a King bed and plenty of room to relax. An 8-foot mirrored wardrobe will provide ample space for all the fashions purchased after a day of shopping in the Village or at the mall, as well as for guests planning extended stays. A flat screen TV provides the ability to watch your own shows if all others are in use, or to finish the day off with the news or your favorite late night programming.
Bedroom 2 – Upstairs, this nice-sized bedroom is beautifully furnished with a Queen bed. Afternoon sun drenches the room, and is the perfect place to finish your novel while sitting in the large Bentwood rocker. The room also has its own TV, plus a small telescope to check out the landscape below.
Bedroom 3 – Also upstairs, this room is vibrant with cool, tropical colors. At night, the memory foam mattress on the full-sized daybed allows for dreamy sleep, and by day, it’s a wonderful place to relax and get away from the rest of the crowd.
Bathrooms – Just off the foyer is a half bath (powder room) with brass and chrome fixtures. The master bath, private and adjacent to the master bedroom, is a full bath with combined tub and shower. A bathroom upstairs can be shared by the two upstairs bedrooms, and is also a full bath.
