Seashore on the Sand
Reviewed 24 September 2013

I believe this is the 4th year we have stayed at Seashore on the Sand. Each time we stay we add more time the following year. It is an extremely private facility and all the condos face the beach. You have your choice of one bedroom, 2 bedrooms or 3 bedrooms. The views are spectacular, the rooms very clean and the beds are extremely comfortable. The kitchens are set up with anything and everything you would need. You are able to walk anywhere within the village which has fun shopping and great eating establishments. Noreen is extremely organized with her bookings and overall management of the facility and Kurt makes sure that any need will be fulfilled. An extra plus is you have a garage to park in. That is a real bonus!

Back to this property for a 4th time and can't wait to return! This time we stayed in unit 403- 2 bed/2 bath with my 3 boys and in-laws and it was perfect for us. Comfy beds, comfy couches, fantastic views-with the sand & the cute little beach town steps from your door. Property still as peaceful and clean as ever- someday I will be able to stay longer! LOVE THIS PLACE!

Room Tip: All rooms fantastic!

My Minnesota family of four (son 11, daughter 9) stayed four nights here in a one-bedroom unit on the third (top) floor for spring break. We couldn't have been happier. The kids slept on air mattresses (provided) next to a picture window in the living room overlooking the ocean. The crashing surf was a pleasant way to wake up. My wife would run the beach each morning while the kids and I looked off our deck for dolphins and seals and surfers in the ocean. One morning we took surf lessons and the guys from Socal Surfing brought the boards and wetsuits right to our beach! (I chose Carlsbad because a travel site recommended it as one of the best places to teach kids to surf.) So we had a lesson and then walked back up to our room for lunch in our full kitchen before heading back out to the sunshine. This place is ON the beach and that really made the trip for us along with a nice kitchen. It's such a luxury to set up camp on the beach for the day (the hotel provides beach chairs) and to be able to pop right upstairs to our room for anything. Most nights we cooked family dinners and then watched the sun set from our deck (OK, sometimes the kids chose sponge bob or sportscenter over the sunset) and then played cards around the kitchen table. We made day trips to easily reachable SeaWorld in San Diego and less reachable Dodger Stadium in LA. Street parking was always available whenever we returned to the hotel. Norine and her staff were kind and accessible whenever we needed something (like printouts of the SeaWorld passes we bought online). Our unit might have seemed a little dated to others, but to us it was inviting and comfortable and clean and perfect for a getaway. And having free laundry facilities was awesome. We didn't have to over-pack for the week. A great value and an unforgettable family trip!

Seashore on the Sand is a personal favorite get-away of mine. I recently stayed at Seashore on the Sand and will continue to revisit this location and recommend it to couples of any age, families with children, and people traveling solo. The atmosphere and location of Seashore on the Sand is very clean, comfortable, beautiful, and relaxing. The owner, Norine and staff are friendly, courteous, and eager to make your stay the best possible experience (even placed an Easter Wreath on every door). The minute you walk through the door to your condo you are breath taken of the ocean view directly out the living room window. The 1 bedroom condo is very accommodating; quiet, clean, and nicely decorated with all the amenities such as laundry, kitchen, living room, bathroom, garage, lanai, beach chairs and beach toys (and you may see the dolphins). Seashore on the Sand is located an easy and safe walking distance to anywhere downtown Carlsbad, CA and close to public transportation to take you from Oceanside to San Diego. I guarantee you will want to come back any time of the year like I do (my fifth time staying here). The photos and literature accurately reflect the property. Thanks for a WONDERFUL stay!

Sand & Surf & Dolphins & Village & Quaint & Classy & Friendly & Tranquil & Sunsets & Serenity & Walks to Pier & Seashells & Nature & Gratitude! There wouldn't be enough space to say all we want to about Seashore on the Sand! And it really is literally on the sand. It just delighted all our senses and the professional staff here couldn't be more friendly and genuine. We want to live here for the rest of our lives. Come experience what a real beach resort should be like and you might have to pinch yourself to make sure it's not a dream. PS. Kids just love the small touches like the Snowman nightlights and the digging toys and the fireplace at night!! We were here over the holidays so it was extra magical!!

My family of 5 stayed here for 3 nights after Christmas and loved it! Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo was perfectly situated on the beach and just a short walk away to the local shops, coffee house, etc. The view from our patio was wonderful and the condo itself was roomy enough for all 5 of us to watch TV, eat, and play games together as a family. Norine, Kurt and staff were all a pleasure to deal also! Our only disappointment....we didn't get to stay longer but hope to visit again in 2013!

We reserved and paid in full six months prior for a one bedroom, second floor, remodeled condo checking in early July 2012 for a week at Seashore on the Sand. One week prior to our arrival we received a phone call from management indicating that another person wanted "our" unit for two weeks and asked us to move out of the unit that we paid for and were "sold on" six months prior and move into another unit. We were being asked to move into another unit that was not remodeled. Of course, we were being asked to move out, as they would be getting double the money for two weeks in that specific unit. Management was very unprofessional on the phone, and made us feel like we were the ones doing something wrong, not them (this was obvious guilt for doing bad business in our minds). Management also tried to make the the other non-remodeled unit sound so much better this time, not the first time, as they were making more money when we originally agreed on the remodeled unit when we booked it. We decided that we did not want to stay at a place that has such bad business practices one week prior to arrival, therefore cancelled our reservation and found another place. Beware!
