Vacation Rentals in Carlsbad

Hello: we are a family of 5 adults, 2 small children, choosing a vacation rental for a week in Carlsbad this summer. Are some areas of Carlsbad "nicer" than others? I'm finding some nice, affordable homes to rent near the beach, Village, etc., but having never been there don't want to wind up in a "not so nice" area, if there is such a thing.

Thank you.

If you are near the beach and the village(Carlsbad Village Drive.)

I would think that would be a very convenient spot!

Why don't you give folks the addresses you are considering so they can reassure you.

Good idea. One of them is 8 blocks from the beach on Woodland Way. Another is in Poinsettia Cove. Another is 3 blocks from the Village and 3/4 mile from the train station.

Thanks for your response.

In Carlsbad you can also look at Condos for rent right in the Village of Carlsbad. In the Village you will have Shops, Restaurants, the Train (great to take a day trip down to San Diego) and much more. You are also with in a 5 minute drive form Lego Land.

You have Tamarack Beach Resort - which has 1 and 2 bedroom Condos located right across from the Beach and Private Patios and much more

and you also have Carlsbad Inn - http://www.carlsbadinn.com

I hope this gives you another option to look at.

Hopefully one of our posters who lives right in the area will answer you.

I live about 30min. south. I don't know which web site you are using for these possibilities but I already don't like the 3rd one on your list which does not give you a street or any name of anything. There are at least 3 train stations so I have no idea where that listing is located.

Although Tamarack is advertising their own resorts, looking at staying there is not a bad idea. The location is quite convenient to beach,restaurants etc.

Perhaps see if you can find something in that area?

I don't think you have to worry about "dangers" but just some areas might be more convenient to activities than others.

The one in Pointsetta Cove looks like it is/near in the Aviara area near where the old 4Seasons Hotel(now a HyattGrand Resort) is located.

I am not sure what your goals are for this vacation?(activities /interests etc)

so cannot really help you decide. I'd prefer to be at the beach if I was going in summer but then that would probably be more expensive.
