La Costa - Carlsbad

Opulent golf course views and upscale living just minutes from the ocean.

Welcome to La Costa

Opulent views and upscale living just minutes from the ocean.
Getting its start as a golf destination around 1965, La Costa has evolved into a thriving, upscale neighborhood. To this day, the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa attracts visitors from around the world. However, over the past few decades, this community has become primarily residential — catching the attention of many part- and full-time celebrity residents.
Locals consistently say that the two best aspects of living in La Costa are the views and the close proximity to the ocean. Hop on La Costa Avenue to quickly access both Batiquitos Beach (situated on Batiquitos Lagoon) and South Ponto Beach on the Pacific Ocean. When living in town, you’ll also be close to top area restaurants and stores.
La Costa features many different places to live. From single-family homes to townhomes and condos, it is easy to find the exact size and layout you desire. Currently, the average list price for single family homes in this community sits near $1.9M.

What to Love

  • Gorgeous views throughout the neighborhood
  • Minutes from the ocean
  • Plenty of spots to shop, dine, golf, and play tennis
