We leave the snows of Michigan for six wonderful weeks of fun and beach. After months of research, two years ago we found Ocean Villas. We will never look elsewhere. Friendly staff, large rooms, two blocks from downtown Carsbad, and right on the beach. Tell me what could be better. Yes there are stairs, and yes as pointed out it... More

Very disappointing; Access to the beach is via a narrow, steep staircase making treks to and from exhausting if you are a child or senior citizen. We should have been told when we asked. Our Unit was high above the sand, had rusting mirrored closet doors, tiny plastic dressers with drawers that don't close, dirty bedroom carpeting, mismatched furniture throughout,... More

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.

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
