Karen and Bob were wondering hosts. They made us feel at home immediately. We had access to their backyard and pool room and could come and go as we pleased. It was the perfect combination of feeling welcome while allowing us the privacy we needed.
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!
Thank you Ben. I was a little worried about you two when I heard about all of the flooding in Phoenix the day you drove back. Hope all was ok. We enjoyed your visit and hope to see you again.
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.
We just returned from a wonderful stay with Karen and Bob. The hosts treated us as if we were family. They are very accommodating and personable people. It was an absolute wonderful experience. This was the first time that my husband and I ever experienced the utilization of an Airbnb, and to our delight it proved to be a great and successful introduction to this very clever concept of staying at someone's house rather than being limited to the boundaries of hotel room.
Karen and Bob have a beautiful house with an amazing garden. A wonderful and very safe neighborhood situated with the convenience of being close to just about anything one may need and require; beach, grocery stores restaurants, movie theaters, shopping areas, freeways…, all reachable within minutes. The place is truly a paradise for which photos cannot possibly do justice; one can only take this in once on location.
The hosts are now our friends, and we are already planning our next visit.
Karen and Bob were wonderful host and their house was really great including the room we had. I can more than recommend a stay at this place and will hopefully have the possibility to get back.
I have known Karen and Bob for many years; you will not find a more hospitable couple. If you need to know where to go to have a good time, suggestions abound. As for their home,
the location is ideal; close to the beach and the charm of downtown Carlsbad. The bedrooms are comfortable and look just like the pictures. If you need to unwind, the garden setting is straight out of a Home and Gardens magazine; beautiful, quiet, and relaxing. Once you stay here you will not want to go anywhere else! Mari-Elena
