A guest from Greenwood Village, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in February, 2016 This property is situated on a marvelous beach. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. The kitchen/living room area has large windows looking out on the beach. In all, the property was a good place for our family vacation, including a 2 year old. We had a great time.I wondered why the reviews were somewhat measured. As far as I can tell, there are two downsides. The common room contained the kitchen, dining and living room. There was not enough space for the dining room table which was situated in the entry, right by the door. It could sit only 6 people and so we could not eat as a family together at the same table.Secondly, this property is one of three in the same building, sandwiched between the lower and upper condos. The noise from the upper condo was terrible when it was occupied. Also, the hot tub and outdoor sitting area for this property was markedly inferior to the hot tubs and sitting areas for the two other properties in this building. (Note that one picture in the advertisement is of Carlsbad and not of the property itself.)
kathleen f. from Los angeles, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2015 This place is the nicest we saw on this stretch of beach!Loved that everyone of the four bedrooms has its own bathroom plus a spare. Only suggestion would be to let guests know it has charcoal bbq and you need to provide your own charcoal. Also, if you are big cooks like,us,may need another frying pan. Otherwise, it was awesome!!
A guest from walnut creek, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 House and location is beautiful. On the other hand cooperation from property manager poor and unreasonable.See the detail in VBRO review
Lisa F. from Seymour, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2015 This property was fantastic. The location could not have been better. The house was exactly like picture except with a view that was amazing. The access to the beach is but a few steps away. The management team was very accommodating when we had an issue with the door lock. The house layout was great and the kitchen was equipped with all you need to cook. There were many restaurants in walking distance. Would stay again in a heartbeat.
Fran B. from Placentia, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2014 We had a wonderful stay out the our oceanfront rental. Even a little rain could not dampen the beauty of this place. We were attending a wedding a Levyland and this rental was the perfect solution to keep our family together.
A guest from Idaho Falls, ID recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2014 Our experience at the Oceanfront Vacation Rental in Carlsbad was wonderful! The rental property was right on the beach and, yet, just steps away from the shops and restaurants of Carlsbad. The unit was beautiful and very efficient for our stay. The view from the front windows overlooking the ocean was truly awesome! It was just perfect for our family reunion.
A guest from Phoenix, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in May, 2014 Our family had a great stay in this beautiful home! The huge windows lend themselves to great views, and the beach is perfection! The staff at BeachFront Only far surpassed my expectations. We have stayed in the O'side/Carlsbad area for 30+ yrs~ and never have we had such a responsive group. (from booking, to helping me find the laundry soap :) to fixing a broken door handle! ) They really mean "don't hesitate to call" ~The home is completely outfitted ~ Just bring your sandals and enjoy the stay.....only complaint...wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you BFO for helping to make our stay such a carefree one!
Elena R. from Phoenix, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 This beach house was PERFECT! We celebrated the best weekend with moms and daughters who are all best friends in this gorgeous beach house that is perfectly located in the heart of Carlsbad and right on the beach! We were very comfortable and, having bathrooms in each bedroom was a necessity for all of us women. We plan to make this trip an annual event and hope to reserve this property again. There are three rentals in the same beach house - all beautiful and very roomy! Thank you for accomodating us for this memorable weekend!
Jack B. from Tucson, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2014 Loved the place. Would have no trouble recommending this place. The price for 4 nights was at my limit of what I will pay for a place on the ocean, but, all seven of us enjoyed the condo.
Excellent house and location ! All the emenities there!
Patricia A. from Ijamsville, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2013 Besides that the place had everything we needed and a view to die to ... We really loved the fact we could include my sons dogs as you were pet friendly ! Really a super clean awesome place !!! Saw dolphin everyday ! Your neighbor Diana was really a treat to talk to !!
A guest from Dearborn Heights, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2013 Our stay in Carlsbad was almost perfect in every way. Weather, location & facility, were ideal. We would return in an instant.
Gloria G. from Gilbert, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2013 Three sons and their families living throughout the US joined us for a wonderful four days of fun, food, and fellowship over Thanksgiving. Kids loved the sand and surf and Legoland, and the adults were impressed with the beach walk, Starbucks, grocery store, and restaurants -- all within walking distance! The well-furnished house felt like home within a few hours. We wished we could have stayed much longer.
A guest from Chino Valley, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in September, 2013 Our family was truly blessed to have had such a wonderful vacation right on the beach in a spotless home with all of the amenities. We have rented several other homes locally and this was the cleanest and most professionally operated. Would recommend a few spare towels however...with children we were running the washer and dryer continuously.
John B. from Irvine, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 We absolutely loved the location and unit. It had great access to the beach and wonderful ocean views out of the living room and kitchen. The front door screen looks tacky with black tape keeping the screen together. Also, the property managers were very rigid about the check-in time and made up excuses to keep us out of the unit even 20 minutes early.
Lisa F. from Temecula, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2013 This is our 2nd time staying at this property and we love it ! Everything about it is special, the condition, the mgmt, the views, the location ...everything ! It's so incredibly close to walk to dinner or coffee or exercise...the beach is down some steps which means its "right there" but not right outside where you'll drag in sand all the time . We loooove it here !
A guest from Carlsbad, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013 We had a great stay with our sons and their families. Used the hot tub and gazebo to the max and of course the beach. Walking distance to shops and restaurants couldn't have a better location for all 3.
Mike K. from Carlsbad, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2013 This house is in the absolute heart of Carlsbad Village. You can park your car here and not get back in for a week. Quick response from management when I had trouble with the entry code (my issue not theirs). I would suggest they upgrade their TV. Didn't seem to be high def or, if it was, it wasn't very good. You may not watch it much, but for a high end place on the beach it should be better.
Hannah Z. from San Diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2012 We were very impressed with our beach rental. 1. Location could not be beat. 2. Confirmation process was thorough. I especially liked that you had an app for my iphone. And that everything I needed to know about my reservation and the home was integrated into the app. 3. Home was set up a like a hotel... but better. Yes... there are the standard amenities such as bathroom items. What set you apart was the quality of how the kitchen was equipped. Obviously we rented a beach home so that we could all stay together, and create meals together. Being that it was holiday weekend we did have a full course dinner planned and we were quite amazed and happy to see that the kitchen had every item we needed to prepare our dinner. We loved our stay. Our guests had a great time. And we look forward to utilizing your company again. Thank you!
Jim and Pat D. from Beaver City, NE recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2012 The property was of superior quality, the staff very friendly and accommodating, and the location was perfect.
local family rental for husband suprise 60th birthday
Tracy K. from Escondido, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2012 Words cannot describe the great time we had at the condo! It exceeded our expectations! We live locally and I rented the condo for my husband's surprise birthday. The condo was spacious, well accomodated, well-stocked with everything. The view was amazing! Kudos to the staff (Hilary in particular), who went out of her way, ever-efficient, always pleasant to work make our overall experience exceptional. So great in fact, we all have decided to make this a yearly tradition! Why travel to Hawaii every year when you have Beach Front Only and Carlsbad???
Very Nice Location, Disappointing Customer Support
Emil B. from Chula Vista, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2012 Location was outstanding, very disappointed with the leak in one of the bedroom. Called the emergency number listed and apparently they knew about the problem, was told they will send somebody to dry up the are(carpet was soaking wet!). Nobody showed up, our guest ended up going home due to the smell in the bedroom being unbearable. Should just advertised as three(3) BR and closed that one room. Property management also said they can't figure out where the leak is coming from --- it could be from sewer line for all we know .... I was embarassed inviting friends to come over ...
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals The leak has been repaired and the carpet replaced. We are sorry that you experienced this. ~The Team at Beachfront Only
Diana S. from Hemet, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 For that kind of exhorbitant rent I expected a spectacular unit and this place was just mediocre and small. Advertised as sleeping 9 but no way could accommodate even just seating that many without everyone cramped. Kitchen very small and condensed, no real balcony, only a super small patio you had to climb down sandy steps to get to, and it only seated 4. TV was useless without a guide or service provider to give us a clue. No place to put anything personal except on the floor. Very small and cramped and uncomfortable, most hotel rooms are furnished better. This was a crash pad, nothing more and I feel ripped off.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Diana: we are sorry to hear you did not feel you received good value for your money. Most of our renters love Carlsbad for the location, and we have the square footage of the rental clearly listed on the online property profile. For your next visit, our reservation staff would be happy to work with you in advance to find an option that is a better fit of the vision you have for your vacation. The 4-bedroom rentals in Oceanside and Encinitas are priced lower than the Carlsbad 4-bedroom. And, our luxury condos in Oceanside also offer more square feet. We hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Carlsbad, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2012 The property was very nice - we had trouble getting in the front door when we arrived which was frustrating, but we were able to contact the management company right away for help. The view was wonderful, but it was tight quarters to be sharing with neighbors above and below you. Overall it was a very nice weekend and the rooms and kitchen were well stocked and clean.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Britney: glad to have you with us and glad you had a nice weekend! Carlsbad is definitely our premium spot for location; however, our reservationists would be happy to show you our lovely and spacious luxury 4-bedroom condo options in Oceanside for your next visit, if you would like. We hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
Eric B. from Salt Lake City, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2011 Very nice property right on the beach. The interior is clean. It sleeps a lot but the non-bedroom space (kitchen/living room) is quite small. All in all a very nice spot.
A guest from Mesa, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2011 Overall the rental was great.A couple of minor points - there were ants and mouse in the kitchen.- the exterior parking spaces should be labeled better so each rental knows where to park.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hello Brent: thank you for the feedback and sorry you experienced a rodent disturbance during your visit. Although we keep our homes extremely clean, rodents and bugs are something we have to treat for seasonally for our rentals. If you have issues, please call our Operations team right away for assistance. Per your recommendation, we have diagrammed the parking to make it clearer for our guests. We hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
anita b. from fountain hills, arizona recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2011 the mirror wall was perfect-ocean wherever you looked! The jacuzzi/deck was lovely, too, but (it'd be a good idea to signify which one was for which apartment - we had to call to find out.)Just an all round delightful place to stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Anita: thank you for the feedback and glad to have you with us! We have labeled each deck/spa area and we hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
Andris R. from Temecula, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2011 We had a wonderful stay at your property and look forward to coming back again next year. As parents of seven boys, we could watch them frolicking in the waves from the large picture window overlooking the jumping whales and dolphins as well. The layout of the house was perfect and the two washers and dryers kept us in clean clothes and towels constantly. Great location - great vacation!!! Easter sunrise service on the beach was glorious!
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hello Andris: thank you for the feedback and glad to hear you had a great visit! We hope to see you again soon! ~The Team at Beachfront Only
Katie B. from Loma Linda, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2011 A group of my girlfriends were looking for a relaxing getaway that wasn't too far of a drive, and that's exactly what we found! The view was amazing and the unti was very updated and beautiful. The only two things that could improve this property would be to add more comfy seating options and for the "hot tub" to be pictured correctly in the ad. I know the check in/out time is a policy, but the parameters given make your final morning at the beach very rushed. 10am checkout time is a little extreme, maybe a policy revision is in order. On a positive note, we were all surprised how large the place was, bathrooms for everyone and bedrooms for all. The kitchen was well equipped and very nice. We have already recommended this unit to a friend who saw our photos. Our other friends who were unable to come have already asked if we can plan a return trip in November! Thank you for making our online reservation very easy. We will be back!
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals We have updated the spa is now a patio area below the property, private to the B unit, with a spa. The balcony is as pictured now, with just seating out there. We apologize for the 10am checkout. We would love to extend this time for all our guests, however, with such large homes, it takes the full 6 hours to clean the property before the next guests check in. We do offer early check in or late checkout for a fee. Thank you for your comments, and we hope to have you back. - The team at Beachfront Only
A guest from Tempe, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2010 if you stay at this property take a flashlight as the top of the stairs is not lighted and the stairs are in bad shape.Also hope there isnt a smoker in unit C because the smoke quickly overwhelms the patio of unit BNice place, great location!
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Barbara and Terry: thank you for the feedback. All of the outside lights have been replaced, and we custom built a brand new cement staircase down to beach to replace the old wooden ones. We hope to see you again soon! ~The team at Beachfront Only
Dee Dee K. from North Las Vegas, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2010 We really had a great time.Hate to say anything negative- but there really is not a comfortable piece of furniture to SIT in. The beds are great, though.The cushions to the sofa/bed squish down into the couch and it is really uncomfortable. the other loveseat in too deep and too small for two people. The bar stools feel unstable. I loved the place and feel guilty saying anything, because it with that view-we shouldn't be indoors anyways. But, the sofa's are not comfortable for lounging.Thank you so much for a wonderful, wonderful weekend!! It was AMAZING! I will definatly use your homes again
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Hi Dee Dee: thank you for the feedback and glad to hear you had a great weekend! Per your recommendation, we have switched out some of the uncomfortable furniture in this property. We hope to see you again soon! - The team at Beachfront Only
Best Beach...wait...BEST LOCATION in San Diego Period!!!
A guest from San Marcos, CA, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2010 I have stayed in several locations along the coast in San Diego and also with Beachfront Only's rental in other cities and although the properties are always luxurious I can say with confidence that this property is the best location there is. Once you're there you won't need to use your car because the beach is right out your back door and the darling village of Carlsbad with it's great Restaurants like El Norte and the fun shops are literally right out your front door and around the corner. Granted you pay a little more for Carlsbad but in my opinion it's more than worth it, especially when you've got young people in your group. They have the freedom to wonder and explore and you don't have to spend your vacation driving from place to place. You can just relax. Which is exactly what we were looking for and what we got. The property was beautiful, everything seemed brand new. I'll be honest the common areas and kitchen aren't as large and spacious as others that beachfront only has but it was very luxurious and spacious just the same and the location was just so great. I slept great in the comfy beds & pillows. The floor to ceiling windows in the living room give you an amazing view of the beach and sunset. It's also nice having a bathroom for every bedroom. The washers & dryers in the unit we very new and fancy. Overall this property was great and the location unbeatable. I'll see you all again soon, you can count on that.
Thomas M. from Carrollton, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2010 We had 12 people in our group and were very happy w/ the accommodations. Condo is very clean, has a great location, and plenty of baths. The beach is easily accessible and restaurants and shopping are all within walking distance. Only downside is there is only one television and a very rude neighbor who lives in the property next door. The neighbor constantly complained about us using her stairs and water running off from the balcony when we washed off a spill on the patio.
Property Manager Response: Response from BeachFront Only Vacation Rentals Thank you for your review. Regarding extra televisions, please talk to a reservationist about adding additional tv's for your stay. We may be able to accommodate you depending on availability. We are sorry to hear about the neighbor. We have actually built a new set of stairs, specific to our property, so you do not have to share stairs anymore. Thank you for your feedback, The team at Beachfront Only.
