We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this peaceful Carlsbad bungalow. How nice to find a plate of cookies and a bottle of wine from our host, Michele. She thought of everything in the well appointed kitchen and bathroom. The surround shower with a multiple shower jets was amazing! Easy drive to the beach and restaurants in Carlsbad village. Another perk was the private drive, patio and bungalow entrance, so we could come and go as we pleased. I would have liked two sinks in the bathroom and a larger bed, but we knew this beforehand and it was fine.
We were first impressed with the appearance of the property... Spanish influence, ..well kept. Greeted and oriented to guesthouse by owner. Not only did it look clean, it sparkled ! The guesthouse was a well planned space including a full kitchen and spa-like shower! We could walk to the Village for shopping and restaurants. About 1 mile to the beach but the ocean breezes could still be felt. A beautiful, comfortable and restful getaway. Highly recommend this rental.
My husband and I stayed at the guesthouse for a week for some relaxation and a little business. It is beautifully decorated, very comfortable and immaculately clean. The kitchen is well stocked, including coffee, and Michele welcomed us with a plate of cookies and bottle of wine.
The living area is really comfortable for lounging in the evening and watching TV (full cable with premium movie channels). The bathroom is just as pictured (huge!) with a walk in closet attached to it so you can unpack and make yourself at home. We also loved the patio just outside the front door for relaxing in the afternoon and having a drink.
The guesthouse is close enough to Carlsbad Village that you can walk to restaurants for dinner. It is about a 15-20 minute walk. Also, if you are a runner, you can take a nice four mile loop up Carlsbad Village Dr, along the sea wall on Hwy 101 and back on Tamarck. Despite being so close to conveniences it is amazingly quiet here. We slept with the windows open with no problem. On that note, there is AC, but it was so cool at night, we just used the fan.
This is just a perfect spot for one or two people to take advantage of the fun new restaurants in Carlsbad as well as the beach. We would definitely stay here again.
This place was perf for us. Michelle and David had goodies waiting for us. It was a pleasant surprise. The place was clean and comfortable. The bed and shower were amazing. We will definitely keep this place in mind when our travel plans brings us this way.
This is an excellent place for two. We stayed at Michele's for six nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very "comfy" couch, modern kitchen and bed and bath to dream of. This rental is close, but not to close, to I-5, convenient to a Von's grocery and in a quiet neighborhood. The patio, very private, was an added bonus. I would highly recommend this spot. I feel it is well worth the cost. I saved the phone number and will rent again next time I'm in southern Cal. GL
