I had a delightful stay at Karl's house, a comfortable, spacious and super clean room and amazing hosts in a fantastic quiet neighborhood.
Right in the middle of Carmel valley, access to the 5 and the 508 is close by, making it a short drive to downtown and to la Jolla and del mar beaches.
I really hope I can stay again at the Heckers' house.
I was attending a conference at the Grand del Mar a couple of miles away and didn't want to pay Grand prices for my stay, since I was spending minimal time in my room. Additionally, leaving the Grand del Mar each night gave me a real break from the conference... more peaceful.
Karl and Wanping were gracious hosts, both before and during my stay, answering questions, providing for my needs. Their beautiful home was super clean and uncluttered (mental note to self: declutter my own home). The guest room was lovely and comfortable with private bathroom next door. I made use of their ironing board (4 shirts, 2 pairs of pants). Made myself a cup of tea in the kitchen and had a very nice conversation with Wanping, who has led an interesting life. I felt right at home, but without the homeowner chores.
It was exactly what I had hoped. The only thing that could have made it better would be a trail through a wooded glade between their home and the Grand del Mar so that I could have hiked, rather than driven a car. However, it was a short but pleasant drive and the house was set in a very nice neighborhood.
Karl and his family are incredibly welcoming! Their house is very nice, clean and modern. Karl is an excellent baker and is more than willing to share his delicious German baked goods with tea. The description and pictures are accurate. I would not hesitate to stay here again! Thanks!
Wir hatten eine ganz wunderbare Zeit bei Karl, seiner Frau Wanping und ihrem Sohn Alexander.
Von der ersten Sekunde an waren wir ein kleiner Teil ihrer Familie. Wir hatten tatsächlich das Gefühl Freunde zu besuchen. Kein Hotel dieser Welt kann da mithalten.
Das Haus befindet sich in einer sehr gepflegten, schönen Wohngegend San Diegos. Die schönsten Strände sind in unmittelbarer Nähe. Ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für Unternehmungen aller Art.
Vielen Dank für alles
Unsere Gastgeber waren sehr freundliche und nette Personen. Mit viel Verständnis und Hilfsbereitschaft haben sie unseren Besuch bei Freunden in der Nähe zu einem tollen Erlebnis gemacht. Alles war für uns bereitet, Ausstattungen der Räumlichkeiten sind gepflegt, bequem und haben uns gut gefallen. An alles ist gedacht. Besonders schön waren die Begegnungen mit der Familie. Vielen lieben Dank für alles !
We stayed one week at this place and we had a wonderful time. This was our first experience using airbnb but we are happy that our first experience was actually the best one. The location was great for us, easy access to La Jolla and down town Del Mar. I really recommend this place :)
Karl and Wanping have a beautiful home! Very clean and inviting and quiet. Wanping and her son, Alex were so gracious and accommodating to me in every way. I would deffinately stay here again. The neighborhood was really nice and felt safe. I was just a short drive to beach and things that I had to do in the surrounding areas. Great family, beautiful home all made for a wonderful stay. Thank you for everything :)

My wife and I are both scientists working in the Biotech/Pharmaceutical industry. We met at graduate school when we came to America as international students. We love travelling, meeting people and learning about new cultures. We enjoy cooking and baking. We have opened our home to many friends, vacationers, professors, post-docs, and students from around the world in the past before becoming airbnb hosts in July 2012. Our jobs brought us to several different parts of the country including central Illinois, the Florida panhandle, Boston, and the San Francisco Bay Area before settling down in San Diego. We love San Diego because of the year-round perfect weather, beautiful coast line and state parks, as well as the many attractions and sights. San Diego has so much to offer! We are looking forward to having you as a guest and making your stay in the San Diego area pleasant and enjoyable.
