Welcome to your guide to La Costa Real Estate and Homes in this active Carlsbad, CA community.
As La Costa Realtors and residents, we are very knowledgeable about La Costa neighborhoods, schools, golf, tennis, soccer and recreational opportunities. La Costa is a beach-close residential community on the southern coastal end of Carlsbad, California. It is conveniently located just 35 miles from downtown San Diego (and the airport) to the south, 30 miles from Orange County to the north, 85 miles from Los Angeles and less than an hour from the beaches of Baja, Mexico.
Surrounded by scenic rolling hills, many La Costa homes offer ocean and mountain vistas as well as breathtaking views of the LaCosta Resort, Spa and Golf Course. For home buying, there is a broad selection of La Costa luxury homes, condos, and town homes that should appeal to anyone seeking a home close to Carlsbad and Encinitas beaches, great neighborhood schools, and numerous recreational opportunities. There are older homes in La Costa, including those in the old RanchoLa Costa, Alga Hills,La Costa Hills, Meadowood, and the La Costa Heights area–as well as newer homes in the following more recently developed Carlsbad neighborhoods.

La Costa Schools
Many people, including some out of area real estate professionals, are confused about the school districts serving the residents of La Costa. There are three distinct school districts serving the La Costa area, and district lines are very clearly drawn. The three districts are the Carlsbad Unified School District, the San Marcos Unified School District and the combined San Dieguito Union High School District and Encinitas Union School District for elementary schools. Before choosing which La Costa home to purchase or lease, you may wish to check with the district offices to determine which schools serve the home you are considering. Alternatively, you may wish to call La Costa Realtors and real estate professionals Mike or Roberta Murphy at 760-402-9101/9102. We are very knowledgeable about critical school district borders. It is very difficult for newcomers (and even some Realtors) to understand the intricacies of these district lines–and interdistrict transfers between them are not always possible. For example, most homes off Alga are in the San Marcos School District (except for El Pato Court and homes off Estrella de Mar, which are served by the Carlsbad School District and the Aviara Oaks schools). South La Costa homes that are accessible off La Costa Avenue, however, are served by the San Dieguito and Encinitas Union High School Districts. If school district issues are important considerations, you may wish to consider which La Costa neighborhoods are served by the school district of your choice.
