Please no hanging towels over the balcony on the patio, it is a large and nice patio we don't want it to look bad in the neighborhood. No Smoking except on the patio.
Please be courteous and take shoes off at the door, it is new carpet and this keeps it looking new. There is a shoerack just to the left of the entrance.

Thank you and I look forward to speaking with you soon! Lori
I never met the host, only text. The "upscale" description is not accurate. Living room furniture is dated, seams torn and pillows compressed. Half the dining room chairs were unstable/unusable. The grill was filthy and held together with duct tape and no propane. The coffee maker, pots & pans and ovenware were disgusting! i'm sorry, but the condo furnishings look more like "garage sale" than 'upscale." She said small complex with 9 units --there are over 200 units! Master bedroom TV was old boxy style and didn't work. Living room TV was jimmy rigged to work. We were inconvenienced two days to stay home and show the condo to a potential renter who never showed and second time for a Janitor who was coming to pick up some items and didn't show until 9 PM.
Host said, "If you write me a great review, I will write a great one for you." She also said,"If anyone asks who you are, tell them you are my sister". Does this mean the HOA doesn't allow renters? The owner said my dog was allowed on the beach. He was only allowed on the boardwalk. There are paper blinds in the master that are unusable because the cords are in a corner with a table in front of them. Owner accused my dog of denting them, when it had to be me attempting to open them part way for some light in the the dark room. Now, she says she's going to charge me for blind repair We were asked, by note, to not use the garbage disposer and to close the refrig door that did not close on it's own. The ice dispenser didn't work. The master mattress needs replacement. My husband complained every night and couldn't get much sleep. I was asked to take all towels down "they are only for decor when showing the condo," the owner said and she told us to use the old green ones in the laundry room. All I can say is Renter beware! Upscale? Not this one.
Great place. Lori is very nice, personable and accommodating. The condo is as described and I will definitely be back.
The secured parking is great, the unit is very convenient and accessible. It is almost as if you have your own private elevator right from the parking spot to your front door which was very convenient for my dogs.
The condo is located right off the 5 which is great. At first I thought the traffic being so close may bother me but I honestly didn't even notice it after the first day. It was very nice to be able to jump right on and off to get to some of the other cities.
The sunken roman tub is very nice as well and a welcome relief after a long day sightseeing.
I would recommend this place to family and friends, you should check it out as well!
Lori made us feel welcome. The top floor condo felt very comfortable, and had both good light and a light breeze. A set of stairs from the balcony to the common space a trail was an unexpected nice feature. A very pleasant experience.
The best part about staying at Lori's spacious condo was that it only takes a few minutes (by car) to get to the beach! I liked that it's a gated-community and parking is underground. I felt very secure being there on my own. I appreciated that Lori was available via phone to answer my questions.
Lori was a great host. We had a couple questions and she got back to us right away. The property pictures were spot on. Great neighborhood and very close to the beach. We fell in love with Carlsbad and couldn't get enough of Senior Grubbie's shrimp tacos. We overpacked after reading the spatula review. The kitchen is nicely stocked for normal dining (coffee pot, utensils, knives, small pan set, toaster, baking sheets,plates, bowls, glasses and plastic cups). Bringing our own foil, zip locks, paper towels and garbage bags definitely came in handy. The washer and dryer are a huge plus after hot sunny days. The bedrooms/bedding were perfect for our situation. The only thing we really missed were our king size pillows.
The lagoon is beautiful and the beach is only a short walk. We would definitely rent this property again.
We were originally booked in La Jolla, our reservation was cancelled last minute by another owner. We found Lori's place in Carlsbad and we are very happy that we did. Lori did everything possible to accommodate us and it was a very easy check in process. Her place is just like the pictures and description and very secure which we loved. It was bigger than we expected as well. This is the first time we stayed in Carlsbad and we loved it. Lori gave us plenty of suggestions on were to eat and places to go and they were all wonderful. We would definitely recommend her condo and look forward to our next trip to Carlsbad.
Thanks again for everything Lori.
Looks just like the pictures and in a convenient location. We had a very enjoyable stay at Lori’s place and would definitely stay again. It was Very Clean, Light and Spacious with ease of movement throughout. We didn’t cook, though there is a great kitchen for someone who does. Having the newly carpeted bedrooms at opposite ends of the unit afforded privacy. I was surprised to discover that the MB had 2 full closets plus a unit with built in drawers. Both of us spent most of our days in workshops, so we never did see the view of the pool and lagoon, but it was Always great returning to what really felt like “home”. Thank you Lori for your quick response to our questions and for providing a wonderful home away from home!

About the Host, Lori
Business person, we rent our condo that we are saving for our retirement, not many places are available near the water any longer that are nice and new.
