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 office, Meg I think her name was, helped me procure a new bottle and make it back in time to watch one of the most amazing sunset my wife and I have ever seen, wine in hand!
I can’t say enough about this place. The building was beautiful with hand painted details everywhere. The rooms were clean and comfortable. And the beach! There were miles of uncrowded white powdery sand. Our daughters, 3 y/o twins and a 5 y/o, had a great time. At low tide the waves carve out shallow pools well inside the surf line. Our girls were able to play in the ocean water without risk of being trampled by the waves. It was great. We made sand castles, dug for sand crabs, and splashed in the water for hours.
As if the room, staff, and beach weren’t enough; Ocean Villas is within blocks of the best shopping and dining in Carlsbad. There were lots of outdoors pubs and restaurants serving some of the most unbelievable food we’ve ever eaten. It’s understandable why most of the other guests we met return year after year. We will defiantly be coming back.
If you are fortunate enough to get to spend some time in Carlsbad, make the most of it and stay at Ocean Villas.
