This is our second time shooting at the location and we love it! The backyard location is idea for our video shoot. Although it is wintertime and the grass is drier, Jeff, the owner went out of his way to make the grass green. Jeff is very accommodating and easy to work with. Highly recommend anyone considering shooting or hosting an event at this location!

Jeff's backyard was an absolutely perfect backyard in Carlsbad for my baby shower and would be great for any event. The real standout from our rental experience was Jeff's consistent communication leading up to and the day of the event. He was an amazing host who went above and beyond in accommodating my event. I can not recommend this space enough and promise that your event will shine in this space.
