There are so many reasons to love living in North County San Diego, sometimes it is hard to narrow it down to just a few. Rancho Carrillo homeowners enjoy these top 8 reasons why they love their little slice of heaven in east Carlsbad.

1. Walking & Hiking Amidst the Rancho Carrillo Nature Preserve

The Rancho Carrillo Trail winds through 4 miles of the beautiful nature preserve, which is home to a variety of native southern California wildlife and features a seasonal creek and wetlands. The trail stretches to the east, connecting with the San Marcos Trail system and to the west where it will connect with the future trails in Bressi Ranch and La Costa. The unpaved paths have gentle slopes throughout, making it perfect for hikers, runners, and cyclists. As an added bonus, the trails are pet friendly!

2. Private Swimming Complex & Community Center

The Rancho Carrillo swim center is the centerpiece of the community and is reserved exclusively for residents and their guests. The center features a 57 foot pool and spa which are heated year round.  There are also numerous community events held at the Center throughout the year that make use of the clubhouse, as well as the picnic areas with barbecues.  


3. Enjoy Relatively Low Fees to Comparable Communities

While the price of amenities such as a heated pool and clubhouse might quickly become untenable, Rancho Carrillo’s fees are very reasonable when considered along side other surrounding communities. Homeowners are free to enjoy their community without the worry of those high costs.
