Our house provides that relaxing vacation you need. The house sits on .5 acres, sleeps 8, and is kid friendly. A quick walk gets you to La Costa Resort, but the house has a pool, outdoor living room and fire pit, and built in bbq. 5 min from beach!

The space

Our 2800 square foot house house has a large master bedroom suite with a California King Tempurpedic bed and a soaking tub. The second bedroom has a queen bed plus two twin beds (one is a trundle). A spacious jack and jill bathroom connects to the third bedroom that contains another queen bed. It's set up as a child's room with a changing table, tons of books and toys, a couch, and a rocking chair. You can easily throw down a air mattress and sleep a couple more people. We do have an air mattress that you can borrow, just make sure to request access to it. Have young kids? This is your place...we've got toys galore and are pretty childproofed. All plugs are covered and some cabinets have kid proofing locks. Our house has a large kitchen that you'll love cooking in. That's if you don't cook every meal on our outdoor bbq. This island was created 100% with our own two hands and we are very proud of our work! We have a dining room table that seats 10 and our house is filled with large windows to enjoy the great view of the backyard. It is a very private backyard with tons of space for kids to play. We're on a .5 acre lot with lots of room for running and throwing the football. Depending on the time of year, you can enjoy veggies from our garden. There are outdoor speakers , a hammock, and a black bottom swimming pool. Please let us know if you prefer to having the pool cover on or off for the weekend. Our outdoor fire pit is the perfect place to end your evening with a glass of wine! We do have a cat that will stay in the house while you are here. He's very shy and you may never notice he's even here. You don't need to feed him or give him water. No extra work, just make sure you aren't allergic!

Other things to note

We knew our stay was going to be perfect the moment we opened the door. We were greeted with a bottle of wine, some homemade jam, and a couple of plush toys for our twin daughters. We made ourselves at home and relaxed in the pool and hammock while listening to music on the outdoor speakers. For dinner, I fired up the BBQ while the kids played in the sandbox. Once the kids were in bed, we lounged by the fire pit. The next day we visited the nearby San Diego Zoo Safari Park. That evening, my wife and I took a ten minute Lyft ride to Encinitas to meet some friends for dinner, while my brother-in-law attended a wedding at the La Costa resort which was just around the corner. The home was in a quiet neighborhood and was clean, spacious, and wonderfully appointed for a family with young children. I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

The house was great and as described. The location was perfect for our daughter's wedding which was in Carlsbad. Comfortable beds, big kitchen and family room and the outdoor area was very inviting. There was even a welcoming bottle of wine waiting for us, which was nice. The house was perfect for our needs!

We had a terrific stay at this La Costa home to kickoff the summer. Our family of 8 (two couples and 4 kids ranging from 4-18) had plenty of room to sleep and sprawl out indoors and out. The kids loved the pool, and the patio was a relaxing place to spend the evening after our adventures around the San Diego area. For us the location was great - it was still relatively easy to get to the attractions toward San Diego (Zoo, Safari Park, etc.) and only 10 minutes or so from some very nice beaches, but in a nice quiet neighborhood. The yard is quite large with no neighbors behind (there are power lines behind the home in a greenbelt, but not too close, and the greenbelt makes for privacy). The home was well furnished with everything we needed to make ourselves comfortable. Erin answered the couple of questions we had promptly and overall we had a great experience.

Erin made our stay very comfortable and welcoming. Having two young kids, her house which was already baby proofed and filled with toys and a baby crib made things so much easier for me. I think that this family is a great house for anyone with kids. It is spacious and quiet. I think we actually slept better here than in our own house! They do have a cat which may not be obvious when first reviewing the listing. So make sure you are ok with that before booking this place.

The home was even more beautiful in person. The hosts were great and quick to respond. We spent the weekend in the yard BBQ'ing, swimming and lounging. It was so relaxing and fun. Their lot is huge and allowed for exciting rounds of bocce ball, frisbee, football. It's located close to the resort, golf course, and shopping. This place is great!!

Response from Erin:
Thanks Tawndra! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and was able to use the pool so late in the year. Thanks also for responding to all of my questions afterward!

I'm a wife and a mother of one adorable little girl. I'm a psychologist who tries to balance a small private practice and raising my daughter. I love the outdoors and am always up for a trip to the beach. I love traveling, chocolate, and good wine. I love laughing and having a good time. My favorite afternoon at home? BBQ'ing in the backyard with music and a glass of wine while watching my daughter play. We have a dog and cat that we love to spend time with too. My life motto: I will never regret the things I do, only those I didn't do.
