“Modern and Chic, Yet Cozy!”

Reviewed 29 Dec 2016

Everything is clean, new, and modern, but the place feels like home as you sit by the fireplace and drink a warm cup of tea. The game room with arcade machine, pinball, foosball and such was perfect during the two very rainy days we had while staying in Carlsbad. What could have easily turned into a boring couple days indoors was absolutely a hit with my family. Even many of the small things like laundry can sometimes make a vacation a pain, but they were not even a problem because there was a washer and drying in the unit. The views, oh the views..., we watched the sunrise and the sunset from the while BBQ was cookin' out on the balcony. Gonna miss that for sure! Thanks for making our Christmas SoCal vacation amazing!

“Family Fun”

Reviewed 28 Dec 2016

We took a short family get together and stayed here. This place was amazing! The game room kept us very entertained in our "down time" and the patio was amazing. It was so close to the beach we could head down there for sunset and back before it got chilly! There was plenty to keep us entertained and yet enough space for privacy too. This place was very clean, comfortable and convenient. We would definitely recommend it and will be staying there again too!

We left this wonderful home just last week and what an exceptional place it is! Absolutely loved the location and the house was stunning. Each of our kids had their own bedrooms and bathrooms, the master was comfortable, you could be private or have a blast on the deck with the fire pit or playing shuffle board in the unit or any of a number of other games they made available. We stayed in the Ohana Suite and rarely saw the person in the suite below which made it feel like it was truly ours. Very clean, very comfortable, and such a dream maker!

Owner's reply: Thank you! We hope to see you again!

“Quite a vacation rental!”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2016

The amenities in this rental are outstanding: from the variety of games to the outdoor grills everything has been thought of. The views are beautiful and the patio is perfect for outdoor dining. It's an easy walk to the beach which is one of the best on the north coast. We used both units and Missy, the rental agent, made sure our every question was answered. She was helpful in every way possible. We had air bed problems and she quickly brought over new ones. This is a teriffic rental. Thanks, Missy!

“amazing home with all new inside”

Reviewed 1 Apr 2016

This home is absolutely amazing. Everything is new and finished with high quality materials. Did you notice even the bathroom ventilation fan is ultra-quite Panasonic? The super size deck is also a big plus. Take this one and you will never regret.

“We found a "Gem"”

Reviewed 18 Nov 2015

We rented the entire residence for us and four other couples (family) that were visiting us in Southern California from Pennsylvania for our daughter's wedding in Carlsbad. We looked at some properties in Carlsbad ahead of time and this one stood above everyone we looked at. The residence is CLEAN!!! Beds are cozy and comfortable. Each room has its own TV. There is a game room with pinball machines, fooseball, bikes, beach chairs. It's a quick walk to the beach and downtown Carlsbad. I highly recommend this property for any event. Sans checked us in and went above and beyond showing us everything about the home. She even e-mailed me a list of her favorite restaurants in Carlsbad. Everything in the home is top-notch. Fridge has an ice-maker, cupboards are stocked with most everyday spices and oils. Kitchen is well stocked with utensils and dinnerware. You will not be disappointed.

“Amazing! Exactly what was advertised.”

Reviewed 18 May 2015

The pictures and description of the property on the internet was exactly what we experienced. It was a beautiful home. We could tell it was newly remodeled because it was in impeccable condition.

“Beautiful, Modern Property”

Reviewed 1 Apr 2015

We recently spent a week in the Ohana Suite at Carlsbad Kai. With two adults and three kids between the ages of 18 and 22, this modern home was the perfect setting for a relaxing family vacation.The house is located on a quiet street just steps from a path that leads to the beach. It is brand new and very clean. The unit is fully equipped with everything you might need during your visit. The kitchen has a blender, coffee maker, electric kettle and many utensils if you intend to cook. We really enjoyed eating outside on the spacious deck which has spectacular views of the ocean and the lagoon. In the evening when the temperatures dropped, we sat by the fire pit. The unit has a full size washer and dryer in it and there are additional units in the laundry room on the first floor. Laundry detergent and dryer sheets are provided, so you don't need to bring your own. They also provide hotel size containers of shampoo, conditioner, soap, toilet paper and tissues. This is a nice touch that many other rental units do not include. The garage houses everything you need for the beach (chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and even a surf board) as well as a few video arcade style games. There are also two cruiser bicycles which are great for riding around Carlsbad. This was our third time staying at a property managed by Patrick and Missy and they have always provided great service. We look forward to our next stay at Carlsbad Kai.
