We spent way too much time here over the holidays. Our unit was right on the beach (lower level), and it was in desperate need of renovation. We actually cut our vacation short because of the condition of the place. With so many places to choose from, don't pick this one. The listing promised a garage space that was NOT... More

We stayed at the Ocean Villas a couple of weeks ago. What an amazing place. The staff was great. They made sure our stay was extra special. The night we checked in my wife and I wanted to take advantage of the ocean view sunset with a bottle of wine, which I had forgotten to pack. The gal in the... More

Ocean Villas is a great place to stay right on the beach. You have your own apartment with a spacious balcony overlooking the beach and the ocean. You can wake up, step in your wetsuit and walk right into the waves with your surfboard. In the apartment is everything you need. Equipped kitchen, comfy couch, big tv and wifi. Staff... More

Fabulous place to stay, right on the beach, spectacular views, beautiful sunsets over the ocean. Friendly staff, the rooms come with everything you need, you supply the good times. The location couldn't be better, plenty of shopping and eating just a short walk away. It was nice to be able to relax on the balcony and hear the ocean waves.... More

Right on the sand in Carlsbad, CA. Well appointed with a full kitchen. New ownership seems committed to keep the property in tip top shape. We taxpayers brought in millions of yards of sand to enlarge the beach in 2012-2013. Great place for a family vacation. Been coming for ~30 years and hope to continue.

Our family LOVES Carlsbad, and we will definetly return. The Ocean Villas are in THE best location, walking distance to restaurants, shopping and coffee shops - and of course it is RIGHT on an amazing beach. We had unit H, a Catalina 1 bedroom unit, and it is fine for four of us including two teenagers. This is NOT a... More

My husband and I have stayed at Ocean Villas at Carlsbad twice in the last three years. The first year, we stayed in a one bedroom unit and had a wonderful time. Last year, we decided to splurge and stay in the penthouse and it could not have been more perfect. This is our absolute favorite vacation spot. The entire... More
