Rancho Carrillo Neighborhood Guide

Rancho Carrillo is a fairly new master planned community in Carlsbad. It’s about 4 miles east of the Pacific Ocean near the Bressi Ranch neighborhood. The main thoroughfares are Melrose Drive and Poinsettia Lane. On the north side is Palomar Airport road and to the south is Alga Road.

It’s a quiet, residential community with some lovely views and plenty of walking and biking trails. The historic Leo Carillo Ranch Park is right next door. You can look at the peacocks and explore the old adobe buildings of the ranch that gave the neighborhood its name. There is also a community swimming center with 57-foot pool with amenities and a clubhouse.  

This neighborhood is made up of 18 neighborhoods, 3 of which are gated. Most of the homes were built from 1998 to 2004, and you have variety of home styles to choose from. Shopping can be done at Bressi Village, and El Camino Real is only a short drive away.
