Other Things to Note
Monthly Rentals Only. Early Bookings Preferred.
The house is Low Maintenance and for the most part worry free if everyone follows common sense. I have a maid that charges $100 for cleaning. No spills or burns please and if you do smoke please use an ashtray and smoke out by the firepit. The stereo can get very loud and this neighborhood will call the cops if the music is too loud after 10pm. Please put the trash and recycling out by the curb Thursday mornings by 9 AM. I am flexible about arrival times and departure times to the extent that I need time to have the house professionally cleaned each time before the next guest. Please feel free to inquire about anything else you can think of. I am here to help you make this the vacation of a lifetime.
Karl was a great host. Very responsive over email and by telephone. A really nice guy who was very trusting and went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable.
The house was big, a little basic in terms of decor and furniture but a good entertaining space and a big space for kids.
The swimming pool was clean and a hit with the kids.
The house is in a great location. The floor plan of the house was very comfortable. There were some issues however. The house was not a dedicated rental house. The renter lived there all the time and that caused some issues. First, when he left the house we found his personal laundry in both the washer and dryer. Second, the house was not what we would call deep clean. Third, the dishwasher broke the day we arrived and the owner tried to have it fixed. However since the owner left on vacation day after we arrived he was not available to authorize a new dishwasher to be installed as the old own was not reparable. We had to hand wash dishes all week. We rented the house as a four bedroom, however when we arrived the owner had lost the key to the fourth bedroom and it was not available to us. We did not end up needing it because one of my daughters decided not to come, however if we did need it we would have been out of luck. There were some other oddities as well. For instance, the table lamp next to the bed in our room was missing a shade and was in disrepair. Instead of a regular bulb it had a flood light and there were wires hanging from the ceiling from some sort of missing fixture inside the door.
Nice enough guy and responds well to emails.
Overall: Big pretty house without some necessary furniture. Great neighborhood.
Needs more cleaning, upkeep and kitchen supplies.
Pool could not be heated and the dryer did not work.
Advertised as a 5 Bedroom Home: In fact, the 5th bedroom was locked and unavailable for our use.
There was no dining table, just a small kitchen-type one.
Of the four bedrooms we had access to, only 3 had beds. The fourth a futon.
Dr. Rick asked if he could bring a dining room table for ten and I declined. In my house rules there ios a clear reference that the pool is never heated but that the jacuzzi works great. I shared with the guest that the dryer had stopped working a day before his arrival. The new samsung dryer has been installed and works great. I also explained that we would have to improvise for sleeping arrangements for the teen agers, upon check in he was OK with that. After checkout he had complaints, meanwhile he left my oven on at 190 degrees and I was gone for three days so I'm lucky he did not burn my house down!
This home is in a great location and in a quiet neighborhood. We loved how the home was less than 5 minutes away from Legoland and to a lot of other great attractions such as the Carlsbad Outlets and golf courses.
We stayed at this wonderful home with another family. There were 4 adults and 3 children and we all fit comfortably. The children were able to enjoy the pool and we were able to relax and bbq on the gas grill. The only thing that was a little uncomfortable was there was no air condition in the home and it was quite hot even with all the windows open. (note: We happen to come on a very hot and humid weekend). Other than that the home was a great home away from home and the children enjoyed themselves very much.
We needed a place to stay last minute due to a funeral in the family. I found Karl's place and sent him a message. He responded promptly and was very accommodating to our needs. We had quite a large group and we still had enough room for everyone. The kids loved the pool and hot tub and we enjoyed the open space of the kitchen, family room layout. It was perfect, Karl even arranged to have flowers dropped off before we arrived. Great experience and would love to stay again on our future visits to S. California.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to visit again. Lovely big house with great facilities and handy location.
WOW ..... this is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for somewhere in the San Diego area. Calrsbad is only 30-40 minute drive to downtown SD, so perfect for doing all the city sightseeing stuff like the Zoo, Balboa Park, the Midway. We also went to Legoland in Calrsbad which was amazing (book online for cheaper passes!!) And the Carlsbad beaches are amazing .....
I had family over from Scotland (I have recently emigrated to CA) and me and my family stayed there for 6 days, and we did not want to leave - his home was like our home from home. It is in such a gorgeous area, and completely private. We could not believe the space inside the house when we arrived - perfect for a big family, or 3 or 4 couples - its HUGE !!!
There is a very social communal kitchen / dinning area - we spent many a night BBQing and drinking :-)
The best part for us, was the amazing garden, gorgeous pool, and the luxurious jacuzzi - it really felt like something out of a magazine. There is ample seating to chill and relax .... you actually don't have to leave Karls place to have the best holiday!! And you get the most amazing sunset views from the garden and the upstairs deck. To top it off, there is a big outside fire to sit round .... although we were so lucky with the California weather, we only needed it on once!
Karl was exceptionally quick to answer any emails, and correspondence was easy and clear.
I will definitely be booking with Karl again ......

Due to San Diego's superb climate year round of sunny skies and seventy degrees, I enjoy playing tennis, cycling and of course, swimming in the ocean. I am an entrepreneur and have been self employed for 17 years. I enjoy learning and using the newest technology and simplifying my life via computers and the web. I travel frequently to Brazil and plan to minimize my expenses by staying with other airbnb members when traveling. My favorite book is Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins. My favorite movies are The Talented Mr. Ripley and The Edge. I love to cook and when I go out I look for sushi, healthy Mexican and artisan pizza with of course, a glass of wine or two during sunsets. My motto right now is: "Something Absolutely Amazing is Going to Happen Today!"
