“Wonderful house, great location. We based ourselves here to visit San Diego and smaller coastal towns in southern California. Excellent local amenities. We followed Maggie's suggestions about local places to eat and were not disappointed. Del Mar Fair was fantastic!! Thank you for the admission passes.”

“We have just returned from the most wonderful holiday in Carlsbad. Maggie's condo, which is furnished with great taste and style, is more than inviting and a great place to start exploring the area. Apart from enjoying the endless beaches of San Diego County and watching the surfers, visiting the little villages around Carlsbad is really worth the while. San Diego with all its attractions is just a 30 minute ride away, so there was never a dull moment during our stay. This exchange definitely deserves thumbs up!!”
Where is it?
The neighbourhood is quiet and residential, high above the renowned La Costa Resort, with views of the Pacific and sunsets. The beach (sun, sea and surf) is a 10 minute drive away. Golf courses abound. If you prefer nature, we have a nearby lagoon walk with a wonderful Nature Reserve and myriad of birds... and the Torrey Pines State Reserve, one of my favourites (bring your camera!) If you prefer the desert, Borrego Springs/the Anzo Borrego Desert is a two hour drive inland. San Diego with it's many attractions (Zoo, Sea World, Balboa Park, Old Town, the Harbor, Coronado, Horton Plaza, Maritime Museum, in particular , the Midway...one of my favourites!) is a 30 minute drive away. Take a trip across the border to Tijuana and experience a different world. Los Angeles is within easy reach; Disneyland a 90 minute drive, the Queen Mary at Long Beach, the J.Paul Getty. Worth a visit, the Mission at San Juan Capistrano. In season (July thru' September), racing at Del Mar, "where the surf meets the turf". Deep-sea fishing another possibility. And strung out along the Pacific Coast Highway, all these wonderful little towns to explore. One of the best climates anywhere. Spring is a wonderful time of year for hiking/walking.
