A great place to stay!

The house was great. We had 8 adults and 6 kids ranging in age from 1 to 8 years old. There were lots of things for the kids to do. The location was close to the attractions in San Diego and Anaheim. The pool and hot tub were wonderful. There was a grocery story nearby, and lots of shopping. The beach was beautiful and close by. I would definitely book a stay there again if we're in the San Diego area. It happened to be cold at night while we were there, and we made great use of the fireplace.

Perfect vacation getaway!

This was the perfect vacation getaway! We had 12 family members (6 adults/6 kids) staying in the home and it was such a fun experience! The kids loved the pool and hot-tub. The yard is beautifully landscaped with a water feature in the front and back creating quite a relaxing environment for all. The proximity to the beach and freeway access was also perfect! The home is well stocked with games and things, the kitchen also has everything you need for food prep, and they have lots of water/beach items as well. We ate all but one meal at the home. The layout of the home gave us the perfect space for all to gather. We would definitely go back! Great memories here! The owner was there to greet us personally and show us the particulars of the home and pool. 5-star for sure!

Casa del Sol in Carlsbad

We had a lovely time at the vacation home. VERY impressed with the place and everything it had to offer. For our two families the rooms were perfect and the pool was the biggest hit (even wanting to leave Legoland early to go back to the pool!). All of the extras that were provided completely blew my expectations out of the water! The garage door opener - nice touch. The binder with maps and info, we used it often. Bikes were enjoyed. Having the owners call us and check-in with us, nice to know they were a phone call away. The ease of arriving and getting the key as well as the departure.

Great vacation rental

The pool and hot tub are a great place for relaxing. The landscaping is very beautiful, it is like being in an oasis. The kitchen has a great layout and the house and bedrooms were just the perfect size for our growing family. It is a great location to all the sites we like to visit when we are there. We will definitely book your place next time. Thank you so much for letting our family stay at your beautiful home, we will miss it but look forward to returning.

Great space - Privacy, Backyard and Location!

Casa del Sol is a comfortable, laid back cottage with a great vibe, wonderful back yard that is very lush and private. The location is ideal, being within walking distance to Carlsbad Village and so close to Legoland. Also it is very pet friendly as there are no carpets which we really appreciated. The kitchen is a little dated but is fully equipped with everything any chef would need. We had a great time and will certainly stay there again should our travels take us back to that area.

Perfect and more......

We had a fantastic time at this home. The best for our family ever. The bikes were great, the sleeping arrangements perfect, the pool and hot tub were wonderful. We did use the bikes and also walked a lot. If someone cannot walk a lot, like myself, it was a short ride to many things.The town of Carlsbad was fun with lots of restaurants and things to do. The park down the street was good for our 2 1/2 year old. He also loved the fire engine and put out many 'fires". We hit the beach daily, usually all morning and then back home for a nap. Sometimes we went to the beach near 3. It was always fun and parking was not a problem.The boogie boards and wet suits came in handy. The photos were clear and the description accurate. Everything was clean and easy to locate what was needed. The back yard is lush with tropical plantings, many pool toys and more tables and chairs. It is charming. It seemed to me that the owners had gone out of their way to provide everything a family could possibly want. We would definitely like to come back. Thanks for all your assistance and we all wish you the very best.

Great Family Vacation Getaway!

Thanks for sharing your home with us! It truly was our home away from home. The kids loved the pool and the grown-ups loved the spa! The home had everything that we needed, especially a well-stocked kitchen! The bedrooms had comfortable beds and warm comforters (which we needed for the cool nights). The men appreciated the cable!! They spent New Year’s Day watching every football game available! The location was PERFECT! and allowed us to hit the vacation destinations as well as relax by the beach. Kervin and Patty called the first evening to make sure everything was in order, and they were quick to respond to our call regarding a pool operating question! Thanks for a WONDERFUL week!! We can't wait to come back to Casa del Sol :-) Thanks!

Casadelsol happy!

We had a wonderful experience at the Casadelsol vacation home! The house was even better in person than the picture. Everything was so clean and they have everything a person could want available. Cool decorating in bedrooms, great DVD collection, wonderfully stocked kitchen, bathrooms, bikes, etc! With seven adults I thought we would feel cramped, but we didn't! With the excellent centrally located location we enjoyed the Zoo, Torrey Pines, Mission Beach, Venice Beach, Hollywood, LaJolla, and of course The Carlsbad area and the lagoon. The kids used the hot tub, pool, and bikes and played basketball at several local parks. Thank you for all the tourist info - offering maps and directions and the personal attention answering questions of how things worked. Owners returned damage deposit promptly!
