The Haustay Story

Meet The Founders | Nick & Elisa Foster

Nick and Elisa have a combined 27 years of real estate experience. Nick is a licensed real estate broker in the State of California having closed over $60M in real estate transactions. Elisa is a licensed real estate salesperson in the State of California. Nick and Elisa met (and later married) many years ago while working for the largest commercial real estate brokerage firm in San Diego.

It was on a trip to Italy in 2014 that Nick and Elisa first experienced staying in short term rentals. They stayed in a number of different vacation rentals and quickly realized what properties provided an exceptional guest experience and why. When they arrived back in the states it gave them inspiration to own their own vacation rental one day.

They purchased their first vacation rental, The Coastal Casita, in August of 2016 from their friends that were moving to Colorado. They always had their eyes on this condo due to its high-walkability location located in the heart of Carlsbad Village and its beachy, laid-back vibe. They have enjoyed making it their own and in providing a relaxing stay for hundreds of guests over the years. From the beginning of their ownership, the Coastal Casita has been a popular rental in the area having many repeat guests that come back year after year.

After perfecting their vacation rental they were ready to expand to help others. Next taking over management of Hacienda Terramar, then the amazing ocean front home known as Shore Drive, and many others.

Their mission is to provide an exceptional and memorable guest experience and the absolute highest level of service to their clients.
