“Fabulous Months Vacation”

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.

“Quiet and relaxing”

This was my second time staying here and again, it was as advertised. Quiet and clean, close to both downtown and the beach, but far enough away to avoid the crowds. Grocery store minutes away if you want to cook, and the outlets are about a five minute drive if you want to shop.

“Perfect!”

My wife and I were visiting family on our vacation/honeymoon. This place was perfect. Close enough to our family but still have us the feeling of being alone. The entire place is just perfect. The bed is comfortable, as is the couch. The shower is AMAZING!!! The bikes were great to run to the store and back. It was a quiet neighborhood and it was great not being in a hotel where you run the risk of hearing other guests. I would book here again in a heartbeat!!

“Cozy clean comfortable”

I'm quite particular and my husband is even more so. This is comfortable in a quiet neighborhood. It has all you need and even extras. We felt very welcome. The kitchen has everything you need to prep meals. The private sitting area beats a hotel balcony any day. I will look forward to a longer stay next time.

We loved our 3 night stay at Carlsbad Guest House. While you cannot walk to the beach we found it to be an exceptional place to stay. The Guest House is east of the highway in a very quiet neighborhood making getting in your car essential to get around. We could have stayed here a week! The Guest House is completely self sufficient and has a full kitchen (no dishwasher). We were amazed at how well laid out the design is. We found the Guest House clean and well stocked. The Queen bed was comfortable, the bath is large and the huge shower has more nozzles than you’ll ever need! There is a large closet for clothes and luggage. Living area and TV provide a place to relax after a day of sightseeing. There is even a built in desk/office area. We enjoyed our own driveway. The Guest House is situated at a 90 degree angle from the main residence and faces a different street. My husband liked sitting outside on the patio in the morning with his coffee. Michelle, the owner, is delightful and more than willing to assist in any way, but she leaves you to enjoy your privacy. We appreciated the delicious coffee cake she baked for us. We would love to return. Highly recommend this Guest House for 1 or 2 adults.

“Comfortable accommodation in great location”
Reviewed February 16, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The accommodation is extremely comfortable and very well planned. There is everything supplied that you could possibly need. It is very nice to have the garden with the tinkling of the Fountain and we had many meals outside. There is a wonderfully large shower. The bed is extremely comfortable and the location is so quiet that we didn't hear a single noise at night. There are nine fantastic free tennis courts nearby. It is possible to walk to the local supermarket for supplies. It is easy to park near the beach and Carlsbad Village and there are some very pleasant coastal walks. The train from Carlsbad station goes into central San Diego. Again parking near the station is easy and the train is cheap though only runs once an hour. There are many local restaurants though it is really necessary to drive to them. We had an excellent holiday from this very comfortable base.

“All the comforts of home and MORE! In a relaxing gorgeous neighborhood!”
Reviewed December 31, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We felt SO welcome, as if we were family! We were greeted with some home-baked cookies and fancy bottle of wine which was very special considering we dropped in on the Thanksgiving holiday. For not renting a car, we were very close to the grocery store, village/train station and ocean! They provided cruiser bikes to use too! Not to mention a state of the art SHOWER!!! AMAZING.....The guest house was furnished beautifully and the courtyard decorated just like a feature in Better Homes and Gardens! Stunning, and we woke up to hummingbirds in the fountain - how peaceful is THAT? Such a quiet neighborhood with wonderful neighbors too. Couldn't ask for a better vacation! Many thanks to Michele and family! Happy New Year! Can't wait to come back.
