Home Description

Our 4BD/3Bath beach home is an excellent choice for longer vacations and executive relocation. Our rental rates are lower than rates for less desirable homes further from the beach. We know because if we could have found a beautiful home like this to rent -- this close to the beach -- we may not have bought this home!

Location in gated community close to the beach, shopping, and restaurants

Our home is located in Waters End (see Map above), a gated community in Carlsbad, CA near the beach. The community is west of I-5, easily reachable from the Poinsettia Lane exit. The Poinsettia Coaster Train Station is a 5 minute walk from our house -- a side gate from the community leads directly to the train station parking lot. The Coaster gets you to downtown San Diego in minutes, and connects with Amtrak, north and south. We are also ten minutes from Palomar Airport with direct service to LAX and plenty of space for private planes.

South Carlsbad ("Ponto") beach is a short 10 minute walk (or 4 minute bike ride), and our community has a very large pool and spa. The pool, spa, basketball court, and playground shown in the pictures above are only 6 houses down the street from our house (without crossing any streets) -- but you can't hear any pool noise from our house. The pool is open from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm. The whole community is very
 kid friendly. There is a very good shopping center across Poinsettia Lane about a block down Avenida Encinas, with a large Ralph's grocery store, Starbucks, Ames Hardware, Rite Aide, and numerous restaurants and small specialty markets and shops. All of this is a short walk, about 5 minutes. Bring your Costco card since there is also a Costco about a 5 minute drive from our home.

Description of the house

This is our second home; it is not a "rental property." That makes a big difference! Everything works. The house is in perfect condition -- immaculate, and fully furnished with everything you need. The house has 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths. One bedroom and full bath are on the first floor and three bedrooms and two full baths are on the second floor. The house has a brand new (December 2014) high efficiency furnace and whole-house air-conditioning. All bedrooms have cross-ventilation and new ceiling fans (the MB has windows on all four sides). The master suite has a king bed, huge walk-in closet, and bath with oversized shower stall, soaking tub, and double sinks. 
The master suite also has a sitting area with a comfortable couch and chair and 32 inch flat-screen TV. A balcony from the sitting area looks over the back patio and has a nice bench and comfortable cushions. The second bedroom upstairs has a queen bed. The third bedroom upstairs has two twin beds and a Pac 'n' Play portable crib. There is a high chair for small children stored in the twin bedroom closet. The hall bathroom has a tub and shower. Also upstairs is a laundry room with a high-efficiency washer and dryer. There is a small office upstairs in the hall alcove (see picture above); this is in addition to the office/fourth bedroom on the first floor.
All of the furniture and beds in the house are in very good shape. The house is immaculate -- and we know that all of our guests will keep it that way. On the first floor, the bedroom has a desk and can be used as an office (as shown in the picture above). It also has a queen bed that is very high-tech. It is a Frontgate bed that comes out of the closet, and when you plug it in, it unfolds to a complete queen bed on a platform -- it's incredibly comfortable, and nothing like a traditional "rollaway". There is a full bath with shower next to the first floor bedroom.
Even the bathrooms in our house have granite counter-tops. As you can see from the pictures, the kitchen is ultra modern with stainless steel appliances, granite counter-tops, and is fully equipped. One thing missing from these pictures is all of the framed art that we have added to the walls since the pictures were taken. We live near Santa Fe, New Mexico, and have hung lots of art from Santa Fe galleries in our Carlsbad home for you to enjoy.
The fireplace in the living room is only decorative. The living room has a new 55" flat screen TV, blu-ray DVD player, couches and two comfortable chairs. The picture above shows the couches in the living room as covered in white, but we have changed the covers to a darker color in response to guest comments that the white was too hard to keep clean. The couch and chair in the Master Bedroom sitting area are still covered in white as shown in the picture above. 
Our home is complete. The TV's include 200 cable stations, and the rental includes both high speed wireless and wired internet service. The kitchen has every tool needed for cooking, including things rarely found in a rental property like a good food processor, blender, mixer, and even a lettuce dryer! We live in our Carlsbad home for part of each year, and that helps us keep everything up to date and in perfect working order. It is perfectly maintained and very comfortable. You can believe the pictures above. They are accurate.
There is a two car garage, and outside the kitchen in the play area is a built-in gas barbeque with built-in gas line -- so no canisters to worry about.
Restrictions on rentals
No cats or dogs or other pets please -- we are highly allergic. We do not rent to groups of unattached people, reunions, meetings, weddings, parties, or anyone else who might disturb this family- and kid-friendly neighborhood. Our homeowner's association assesses severe fines for any disturbances -- we would pass along any such fines to guests if that occurred, although we expect that it will not. We must limit guests to a maximum of 8, and our home is most suitable for 6 people or less.There is no land-line phone in the house. We use our cell phones and our guests do, too.

Why did we buy this house?

We bought this house and in June, 2011 because we could not find a suitable rental in the San Diego area that was this close to the beach. We found that the rentals we experienced in this area left a lot to be desired, were over-priced, and not comparable to our house in luxury and convenience. They felt like a cheap hotel room. So, we created the ideal vacation house for ourselves and our family, and for you and your family. We have a local property manager who is available to guests if anything goes wrong -- although the house is so perfect and well-maintained that we can't imagine that happening. We also have a housekeeper who provides cleaning services during your rental and at the conclusion.  
What does "Beachnut West" mean? 
This name for our beach home in California is derived from one of our favorite beach houses in the country, "Beachnut," on Squam Road in the Wauwinet area of Nantucket, MA.  We love that house and have rented it several times. So, we named our own house in California after it.
