We were 1 block form the ocean. We could walk anywhere we wanted to go in Carlsbad for food.The Patio was spacious and the fire pit was a great place to sit in the evenings. They thought of everything. Extra sheets, towels, beach towels, even sand chairs, and boogie boards. There was a huge TV in both bedrooms and a smart TV in the living room. The next time I would make sure that I rented the top floor units. You could hear the kids running around above us. It was Spring break, so there were a lot of kids.
