The offerings of this town are endless. We are also just minutes from LEGOLAND and only 20 minutes to the Del mar Race track and about an hour away from Disneyland. Also just 10 minutes to the coaster located in downtown Carlsbad.
You will be sure to enjoy your stay in our upstairs guest rooms that can accommodate up to FOUR guests total. My husband and I have the master bedroom downstairs and the entire upstairs is vacant so it will be your own little private oasis. BOTH rooms are fabulous! One has a double bed with pillow top mattress. The other room has a ocean view with a queen size bed both with feather pillows.You will sleep like a baby. Your private bathroom has a shower and a tub and towels are provided,

You will truly love the beautiful panoramic view with nature preserve and ocean sights. You will also have access to the gourmet kitchen complete with espresso and Keurig coffee machines.
Also for your enjoyment relax by the community pool or soak in the piping hot Jacuzzi.
Please no smoking and no pets and we ask for quiet time after 8pm since we are early risers. For your privacy we will only rent the two rooms together by the same party.

  • Penny and Pat are simply fantastic. Meeting them was one of our favorite parts to our trip. I have never met two people so loving and hospitable! We wish we lived close by just to be their friends! :) There house is beautiful, just like the photos; very organized and clean!! The beds are super comfy. We will come back and stay with them again for sure! We already miss them and their infectious laughter!!

  • We stayed for 3 nights with Penny and Pat in their immaculately presented and welcoming home. The bedrooms and bathroom upstairs where we slept were clean and everything we needed was provided. They went out of their way to look after us and make us feel at home by cooking dinner for our family; buying the ingredients for s'mores for our children (which they loved!); helping us book massages (and then looking after our kids while we went!). We highly recommend Penny and Pat as amazing and outgoing hosts with a healthy and positive outlook on life who welcomed us openly into their home. If you are looking for a separate private space this might not be your first choice but take a chance. You won't regret meeting Penny and Pat. Thanks so much.

  • This was our first Airbnb reservation and were a little nervous at first. But then Penny called us to make sure she would be there when we arrived and even made sure no one in our family was allergic to the breakfast and snacks they were planning for us.

    As soon as we arrived, we were graciously greeted by Penny and Pat, who turned out to be great hosts. We always felt welcome and truly enjoyed the time we spent with them. Our kids liked them so much they tried to convince them to come with us to Legoland while we were upstairs getting ready!

    The house was beautiful and very clean and looks just like it does in the pictures, if not better. The patio was very relaxing with expansive views of the hillside. The second story is comprised only of the two bedrooms and your own bathroom so you have ample privacy when you need it. There was bottled water in the rooms and toiletries in the bathroom just in case someone forgot a toothbrush. Overall, this was a five star experience which made us want to try Airbnb again the next time we go on vacation. Our thanks go out to Penny and Pat for the wonderful time we had!

    Response from Penny:

    We are so happy that you loved it! We totally understand being apprehensive about staying in someone else's home. Airbnb is a new concept for many and so far we have only hosted first timers. So far everyone has been pleasantly surprised and think that it is even better than staying in a hotel. We offer lots of privacy, great value, quiet, comfortable surroundings, lots of space, laundry facilities, pool and jacuzzi, big closet spaces to put your luggage, bbq and fire pit area and in addition to indoor dining we also have a patio area with a great view. We think it really does not compare. And if you forgot anything we can usually help with that too. It really doesn't compare!!

  • This is a nice house and the host were awesome. I had not paid attention and from the pictures thought it was a unit that included a kitchen/living room. It is in fact two bedrooms upstairs with a shared bathroom. Nice location, excellent view and great host. I am more of a private person and missed it not being a separate unit. Good value for the area.

    Response from Penny:

    Poor Mike! He never said a word. I can only imagine what he was thinking when he realized his mistake. Well, I have to say for being a private person he did very well and he was so polite!
    I did go back on my site and reread it with more discerning eyes and added a little more wording regarding the fact that it is a shared home.

  • My wife, 2 young sons, and I had a wonderful time staying at Pat and Penny's place in Carlsbad, CA. We rented the two rooms upstairs in their house, where it was nice and quiet, well kept, and everything we hoped for after spending the previous night in a Motel 6 in Downtown San Diego. We were welcomed to the house, and they have a beautiful back yard looking down into a valley. You can hear bird wildlife in the mornings. A nice tranquil retreat, after we spent a day in Legoland with the kids.
    Pat and Penny were very friendly, and we had some great conversations. Also totally appreciated the breakfast that was made for us, French Toast, pancakes, etc.
    The location is great, probably took less than 10/15 minutes to drive down to the beach, and checkout downtown Carlsbad. Also only 10 minutes, if that, to get to Legoland.
    The beds are very comfortable, and the rooms were well kept.
    Next time we are in town, definitely would like to stay there again.

  • My friend and I stayed with Pat and Penny and had a great experience! At first we just expected to have the bare minimum, just a bed/room to stay in. However, we were wrong! The house is very beautiful and clean, and the rooms are spacious and private on the second story. The bathroom is private on the second story as well. The views are breathtaking and the patio made for a great place to have dinner and relax. Pat and Penny have provided absolutely anything you could need for a getaway. They have all the amenities and if you forgot anything, it is guaranteed they have it, Penny has thought of everything. Not only was the lodging wonderful, but this beautiful couple worked very hard to make our stay fantastic. Pat and Penny made us feel like family and they exhausted all avenues to make our stay wonderful. We had wonderful food and conversations and really connected with these two. My friend and I definitely felt as though we were going "Home" when would return to the house in the evenings, not just to a place to stay. They are a very caring couple who would encourage us to come and go as we pleased, but quite honestly we had more fun with them than anything else! We really enjoyed getting to know them and really felt welcomed. Our overall experience was great and we would highly recommend this couple and their rooms to anyone in the area looking for GREAT vacation! Better than any hotel! Thanks Pat and Penny, we look forward to our friendship and returning to hang out with you two!

  • Not a mere vacation, this was an amazing experience. Perfect location, perfect house, perfect hosts. It was hard to pull ourselves away from Pat and Penny, and we have a feeling this was not the last time that we will meet.

My husband and I both love the outdoors. and just about anything that keeps us moving. Although we travel from time to time it is very hard to find a vacation spot that beats home. When we return home we always say "no wonder people love coming to San Diego" it is truly a wonderful place to live. Along with staying busy with work we love hanging out with our friends no matter if it is for just a simple bbq at the beach, meeting for a cup of coffee or a fancy gala, it's all good! Life is good and that is why we love sharing it with everyone! Cheers!!
