It is an easy walk downtown to the beach, and to the fascinating Museum of Making Music, with Legoland a 10-minute drive away, Del Mar Racetrack 20 minutes away and world class golf at The Crossings at Carlsbad, and Aviara Golf Club. GIA Museum and Witch Creek Winery tasting room are also nearby. Picnic at Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park or take a day trip San Diego Zoo Wild Animal Park, 40 minutes away.

Why Kids Love it

This is a great family property for all ages, especially if your family likes watersports: swimming, surfing, kayaking, boogie boarding are all just steps away. To make a beach day simple, beach towels and beach chairs are included. Toddlers and babies are catered for with a travel crib and a large and small beach shelter. The hosts can recommend surf and bicycle shops for lessons and equipment rental. The 2-bedroom property offers a bedroom for kids with a queensize bed, and additional air bed options. The awesome location means that there's a lot to do a short stroll away, with blockbuster attractions a short drive away.

Style Notes

Upmarket beach shack. This apartment is all about the view - palm trees and the ocean - which you can see from the moment you open the front door. Inside, Spanish floor tiles and bright Mexican tiles around the fireplace add color and verve. The wet bar includes everything from vintage travel posters to margarita glasses and wine decanters for a touch of glamour, and the kitchen is well stocked with everything you need for cooking, serving and dining.

Carlsbad, San Diego County

The village by the sea

In the northern section of San Diego County, just an hour to downtown San Diego and under two hours from Los Angeles, Carlsbad is a classic Californian beach town with seven miles of mostly undeveloped Pacific coastline. Home to the Legoland California Resort, along with the SEA LIFE Aquarium, the Museum of Making Music and three lagoons, there's plenty for all the family.
