We have a beautiful home in Carlsbad, north San Diego County, situated across from a Eucalyptus grove. Our back yard is full of unique plants, quiet spots to sit and a wonderful koi pond. We have three different rooms available, each starting at $95 a night. The price listed is per bedroom. We have new carpet in all bedrooms. The purple room is newly redecorated with a more modern and elegant look. The contemporary brown room and the gray room, recently painted, share a Jack and Jill bath. When these two rooms are booked together, the rate is $160. Weekends can include a full breakfast for an additional $8 per person charge. ( An additional charge for special diets.) Other meals are negotiable if you would like to join us for a family style dinner. Guests have access to all of the living spaces inside and outside. There is a fun Billards room located off of the back yard. The home is about 2 miles from the beach in a very quiet neighborhood. Restaurants and cute shops nearby.
If you book 3 nights or more we will offer a reduced price.
We need a 3 day notice for most reservations. We prefer a 2 night minimum stay.
Guests have access to all living spaces inside and outside, including the kitchen. Guests are just asked to clean up after themselves.
Interaction with Guests
We love to meet our guests and visit, but we also give you as much privacy as you want.
We live in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood. There are walking paths through the eucalyptus grove right across the street.
There is a bus stop about 1/4 mile from the house. It is very easy to get a taxi. We ask guests to park off the street in our extended driveway.
Check in time is 3:00 and check out time is 11:00, unless other arrangements are made.
We allow 2 guests per room. Some exceptions may be made for young children.
I had a great stay at Karen and Bob 's Paradise Found...It was beyond my expectations. The house and grounds are beautiful and Karen and Bob were gracious hosts.
It is a good location to explore the small coastal towns . Highly recommended.
Karen and Bob are lovely hosts. Their home is absolutely beautiful, from driving up, our room (lavender), the koi pond...We enjoyed every moment spent there. It was the perfect location for us. We will definitely stay on our next trip to SoCal and would highly recommend them to anyone tired of hotel life while traveling.
I loved being at Karen and Bob's home in Carlsbad. Both the home and patio are so beautiful. Their home is across from some woods with a nice walking trail. It was easy to get downtown Carlsbad and to the beach and surrounding environs such as Oceanside and Torrey Pines State Park.
Karen and Bob are such warm and welcoming hosts. They had fruit and bagels and and coffee waiting for me each morning. I loved my private room and bath and their two cats, Bailey and Gina.
A great experience, the hosts could not have been more friendly and welcoming. The place was great, comfortable, quiet, and convenient to all of my activities. Can't praise the experience enough!
We had a brief stay with Karen and Bob. Their home is loved and beautiful.
The photos are exactly as it is. A treat to stay here. The hosts are generous
and helpful beyond any commercial expectation. Definitely would stay again
and regret the brevity of our stay.
What a wonderful, welcoming and warm couple they are! I have to say I am truly envious of their slice of paradise they have made for themselves.
I and my girlfriend stayed for 4 nights and had an absolutely fantastic time. The house is absolutely beautiful and Bob has an unbelievable green thumb. The back yard looks like a Hawaiian paradise. One afternoon we stayed at their house to enjoy it rather than hit the beach which is less than 6 minutes away by car. No joke! It's THAT beautiful.
A hotel has no chance of competing with them. Hospitality in abundance, beauty, convenience and value all wrapped up in one amazing package.
We will definitely be back. Thanks so much for a wonderful time!
We really enjoyed our stay with Karen-- alas it was too short to enjoy the spa or the billiard room. Our room (the Purple Room) was delightful and very comfortable and the entire home and garden was immaculate. We would happily stay here again and highly recommend this host and home.
