We always try to keep a warm and cozy atmosphere for everyone to enjoy. I will definitely tell my Uncle Michael how much you enjoyed the breakfasts, "to die for" is the best compliment you can bestow upon someones cooking :) Glad you enjoyed your stay and our city.

Very close to the airport and nightlife of North Park and San Diego. We really enjoyed the casita with private parking, bath and kitchen. Like home with someone making an amazing breakfast each morning.

Tremendously comfortable B&B in an easy to find and convenient location. Great bed, tons of clean towels, robes, anything you need is yours for the asking. And the breakfast is a real gourmet treat; hot dish PLUS homemade muffins, fruit plate, juice, coffee, tea, etc. I love staying here, and Carole is like family after I've stayed here twice! I will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Some are larger than others; ask Carole if you have a particular need or preference.

My uncle Michael will most definitely be happy to hear you enjoyed his breakfast, he likes to make sure our guests kickstart the day off right. Great to see visitors enjoy our wonderful neighborhood North Park, and have a nice stay with us. Feel free to come back anytime.

Carole was extremely accommodating although our plans where last minute. It was like staying in a family members house. Everything was simple and very easy going as well as comfortable. The place was extremely clean and had all the amenities one needs for a perfect mini and long term vacation.

Comfortable, clean room. Good breakfast served hot at the table, hot coffee always on the stove. Not a large number of people. Close to Balboa Park-- which I learned is a LOT more than a zoo. Easy walk to a 'neighborhood' commercial area for restaurants, shops, etc. Most important (to me)- made to feel very welcome in Carole's house. Felt more like a friend of the family, rather than a paying guest.
No doubt, would stay with Carole and family again.

It was our pleasure making you feel like family, and it sounds like you had a nice fair share of what our beautiful city has to offer. Enjoy the wonderful California summer, and try to stay cool.

We (me, wife, and 3yr old) loved our 4-night stay at Carole's. The casita was roomy, comfortable, and cared for. The front door parking was convenient. The location was fantastic- great sushi and Italian in walking distance. The pool was fun! And it was wonderful meeting all the interesting guests over breakfast, which was great (thank you Michael.) I highly recommend Carole’s B and B.
