We selected August for our vacation at CBINN as the ocean water is at its warmest and there's SUN every day with beautiful sunsets over the Pacific. So. Cal. does have May Gray and June Gloom.
Here we go: Check in is easy-right off Carlsbad Blvd. There's free on-site underground parking for guests. Accomodations are 1 or 2 bedrooms with daily towel exchange and mid week maid service. Activity Center is staffed from 8AM to 8PM with weights, stationary bikes, elipticals, walkers, ping pong, sauna and a nice locker and shower room. Free use of beach bikes and stollers. They also issue beach towels. There's a pool with kids jacuzzi and a separate adult jacuzzi. The activity staff has planned daily activities for the kids: beach bag, rock and shell painting, root beer floats, lawn games, water balloon toss, sack races, hula hoop contests, etc. The CBINN staff are all super.
Even the maintenance crew and maids greet you with a friendly "Hi, how you doin?"
CBINN is only 1 block from the Coaster (train) station where you can grab a train either north to Oceanside or south all the way to San Diego with numerous stops along the way. Then you have the the luxury of being located, not only on the beach, but almost downtown Carlsbad with so many things within walking distance like grocery stores, numeorus small shops and tons of places to snack and eat that range from very casual to semi formal. We ate at and recommend Nortes (Mexican) right on site, Cessy's accross the street, Senor Grubby's, Pizza Port, Submarina, Al's, Mr. Peabody's, Coldstone, Jamba Juice, Burger Buddies, Pollos Maria, Hennessey's, Overseas Chinese, G Spot, and more...all within walking distance. (or you can cook in your unit!!!???) We didn't use our car all week.
The library has a 50" HD TV and free use of 2 computers with Internet service. The library also hosts a Sunday Casino Night, a Wine Tasting Night and a Pizza Bingo Night.
A full concierge service for arranging trips and tours is available near the check in desk.
The beach is just across a narrow street and down a few stairs where CBINN has a beach cabana that supplies free beach umbrellas, chairs, boogie boards and toys for guests. There are other Timeshares in Southern California but none have all these amenities. We know, we've tried them. Have fun and visit CBINN. SaminSanDiego
