“Couldn't Be Better!”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

If you are looking for a private, quiet, clean and totally updated place not far from the Village and beach, this is it! It also has off-street parking and a private patio. A real bonus is the "L" shaped built-in office/study for working on your laptop. The kitchen looks brand new with stainless steel appliances. And wait until you see the large, round shower with several options in the bathroom. We loved our time here and owner Michelle couldn't have been nicer and more available to us. Great get-away cottage for two.

“Amazing stay for our summer beach getaway!”

This is a beautiful guest house vacation rental! Fully equipped with all the comforts of home. Or if you opt to go out it is close to Carlsbad village and shops and restaurants. Perfectly private and owners and available for whatever you might need! Michelle is so kind and even left us brownies and wine to enjoy! Close to the beach and many fun activities! We loved staying here and will definitely plan another stay in the future - as will many of our friends and family! They were just as impressed from our description. Thank you for a lovely vacation spot!

“Perfect Place To Stay”
Reviewed 1 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I was traveling solo to attend a graduate program course. I felt very safe and comfortable in the guesthouse. The owners have thought of every detail and the place looks much better in person. Photos don't do it justice. Great neighborhood and very clean & quiet. Highly recommend and I hope to stay there again in the future. Thanks!

“Home away from Home!”
Reviewed 26 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

What a wonderful little home..., your own private oasis. Owners are very gracious, with homemade goodies to boot! The ensuite was wonderful, and the shower is amazing!
It was a bit cool while we were there, so we didn't get to sit out on the patio. The view was nice as well. The personal touches throughout the coach home are carefully placed. Although the coach home is attached on one wall, you'd never know, it was very quiet and peacefull. The private drive was a plus!

Would visit again if in this area!

“Our California Home...”

...away from home. It is much more than just a guest house it is a real home. Has everything you need to just move in. Fully equipped kitchen with all the condiments. AC and heat if needed. We didn't!! And wait until you see and enjoy that shower. That alone will make your day... plus cable TV, Wi-Fi,patio, total privacy and very comfortable. Our downfall is not planning ahead. Not many open dates any more. So book well in advance.

“Fabulous Months Vacation”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

people found this review helpful

My husband and I recently stayed at the cottage in Carlsbad, Ca for one month. The stay was possibly the best we have ever had. Michelle and her husband were gracious, considerate and absolutely wonderful hostesses. The cottage was remarkably decorated and furnished. We received freshly baked goodies and wine to help make our stay morable. Although the cottage was attached to the main house, we had complete privacy. Outside of the front door was a wonderful patio and beautiful plants and flowers. This was a vacation that we will always cherish. Thank you for helping us to make wonderful memories.
