We had a WONDERFUL stay at Gene's apartment. The apartment is very clean and even nicer than the pictures. It was welcoming, homey, and pretty well equipted if you plan on doing any cooking. Gene anticipated many of our needs and went out of his way to welcome us. I would highly recommend his listing for staying in Carlsbad or a for a quaint getaway just outside San Diego. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks Gene!
Thanks for your nice review and helpful input! Hope to see you again in the near future!
This apartment is in a great, peaceful location - close to village as well and the beach. Gene is a fantastic host and was always very helpful and took good care of the place and guests. I rented this place for a month and really enjoyed this bright, serene apartment a lot. Highly recommend.
Gene is a very kind and welcoming host! The apartment is in a great location and has all the necessary amenities (and some thoughtful additions!) for a very pleasant stay. I highly recommend choosing Gene as a host; he was very attentive to our needs while we were there. We certainly would like to return someday!
Emily and Jason were great guests! They communicated well and left apartment in great shape. Looking forward to hosting them again!
Great host and a great place, the location is really good, I have zero complaints
It was very comfortable good stay.
Genes place is great, all the amenities you need to really put a trip over the top....hotels are cool but something about them are just impersonal and isn't really an experience worth remembering but his place really allows you to feel like your at home the comfort is unmatched if your looking for a place too stay then you found it. He is extremely accommodating to your needs and checks to make sure your doing well. Plan on coming back soon
It was our first airbnb experience and we loved it. Will stay again.
Thanks Alex! I hope I get the chance to host your family again. Please tell me anything that I can do to improve the experience.
Lovely place to spend a couple days or longer :-) . Close to village, beach and all the great surf spots. Very uncomplicated, Gene was always very helpful in any case and took good care of the place and his guests. We had everything we needed, even a balcony for breakfast in the morning sun.
Thanks for a great time in Carlsbad- we highly recommend this place !!
The 1 bedroom apartment is fairly spacious and comfortable, and is at the back of the main house; it is close to LEGOLAND roughly 8 min drive. Gene, the host, was amiable and kept communication channel open to ensure that we had everything we needed. I didn't get to meet Gene but we communicated pretty much through airbnb. This is an affordable accommodation, worth taking a chance on.
Glad you enjoyed yourselves! Hope your son enjoyed the Lego toys and books I left for him! Hope to host you again.
All of the positive reviews for Gene and his one bedroom apartment are justified! We LOVED this place. Gene was amazing. He cares about your comfort, and goes the extra mile to ensure an enjoyable stay.
The beach and main hub of Carlsbad are truly less than 5 minutes by car. We arrived in Carsbad on Saturday and I wrote to Gene first to make sure that his place was available. His quick communication confirmed we could stay there that night for two nights.
His spacious apartment is built over a garage which doesn't seem to be used. It actually looked better in person than in the photos. Being up on top of the garage with windows galore translated to wonderful ocean cross breezes, and a bright, cheerful unit. We plan on returning again, hopefully for longer because we found Carlsbad to be so charming, and the apartment so perfect for us. Thanks Gene!
