Interaction with Guests
I will nearly always be available via email, text, or phone if guests need me. My face-to-face interactions depend upon whether I am home or away during the guests stay. If home, I welcome interactions if the guests wish but otherwise the guests have complete privacy and I will stay out of their hair.
Enjoy yourselves but please respect neighbors. No large and/or loud parties please. I prefer that shoes not be worn in house.
Genes place is great, all the amenities you need to really put a trip over the top....hotels are cool but something about them are just impersonal and isn't really an experience worth remembering but his place really allows you to feel like your at home the comfort is unmatched if your looking for a place too stay then you found it. He is extremely accommodating to your needs and checks to make sure your doing well. Plan on coming back soon
It was our first airbnb experience and we loved it. Will stay again.
Lovely place to spend a couple days or longer :-) . Close to village, beach and all the great surf spots. Very uncomplicated, Gene was always very helpful in any case and took good care of the place and his guests. We had everything we needed, even a balcony for breakfast in the morning sun.
Thanks for a great time in Carlsbad- we highly recommend this place !!
The 1 bedroom apartment is fairly spacious and comfortable, and is at the back of the main house; it is close to LEGOLAND roughly 8 min drive. Gene, the host, was amiable and kept communication channel open to ensure that we had everything we needed. I didn't get to meet Gene but we communicated pretty much through airbnb. This is an affordable accommodation, worth taking a chance on.
All of the positive reviews for Gene and his one bedroom apartment are justified! We LOVED this place. Gene was amazing. He cares about your comfort, and goes the extra mile to ensure an enjoyable stay.
The beach and main hub of Carlsbad are truly less than 5 minutes by car. We arrived in Carsbad on Saturday and I wrote to Gene first to make sure that his place was available. His quick communication confirmed we could stay there that night for two nights.
His spacious apartment is built over a garage which doesn't seem to be used. It actually looked better in person than in the photos. Being up on top of the garage with windows galore translated to wonderful ocean cross breezes, and a bright, cheerful unit. We plan on returning again, hopefully for longer because we found Carlsbad to be so charming, and the apartment so perfect for us. Thanks Gene!
Gene is the consummate host. No welcoming detail was overlooked, from the chilled beverages in the fridge to the chocolates on the pillow. I slept like a baby and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. If I am ever in the area again, rest assured, I will be staying here. Thank you Gene!
