Owner Supplied Testimonials

"I stayed at Seaside Cottage in November and cannot say enough good things about it. This home has been in the property manager's family for many years and they truly care about making it inviting and pleasant to stay there. It's on a quiet street just two blocks from the beach. It's very spacious and has a beautiful back yard, tasteful and comfortable furnishings, and a "homey" atmosphere that makes you feel more like an invited guest than a renter. Lots of nice touches and well appointed. It's close to convenience shopping (supermarket, drug store) and about a mile from the many shops and restaurants of Carlsbad Village. I wish I could have stayed here longer!" - Rob E., Arizona

"We were looking through tons of sites for a place to stay while we were on vacation in Carlsbad, CA. When I came across the Seaside Cottage online I loved it at first sight. There were lots of pictures of the place so we could really see what it was like. We have 4 kids and when I saw the back yard w lots of room to play and the playset/swing set I knew the kids would love it. We wanted a place that we could walk to the beach and this was it. It's a five min walk to the beach. We pretty much had the whole beach to ourselves whenever we were there. The cottage also supplied everything you would need on vacation like beach towels, toys, bikes, BBQ grill. They supplied all the bathroom needs as well. This really allowed us to pack clothes and not have to drag tons of stuff w us. Which is awesome when your driving 7 hours. Having a washer and dryer in the house was a huge help w 6 of us. The cottage also supplied all the soaps needed for that. I can't tell you how impressed we were w the house and how easy it was to just enjoy our vacation. There were lots of board games and card games at the house. The kids loved being able to play games together as a family. The staff was so friendly and helpful. I have already shared the Seaside Cottage info online w/friends that have been asking for it after seeing the pics I posted. I would highly recommend staying here to friends and family and I look forward to our next stay. We spent a week making wonderful family memories here and loved it. Thanks again." - Sarah H., Arizona

"Loved absolutely everything about this charming cottage. Took my spry 80 years young mom and feisty 7 year old daughter for a long weekend. The house was a five minute walk to the beach and one freeway exit from Legoland. Could not have asked for a better location. Ended up spending more time than expected in the relaxing backyard chairs watching my daughter play on the play structure. The owners could not have been nicer, leaving my daughter a small gift upon her arrival. So looking forward to coming back to this gem really soon." Elizabeth, Oakland, CA
