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.
Karen was an exceptional host. She was accommodating to children and knowledgable about the area. She clipped us a coupon for Lego Land and provided beach gear. The best part of all was her cooking. Breakfast was amazing!!
Her house is truly paradise. The rooms were clean and modern. Breakfast on her backyard garden was incredible.
I would highly recommend staying there. Great for groups traveling together or individuals.
Thank you Karen!
Every single detail of Karen and Bob`s house and garden had been carefully chosen to produce a property that is truly stunning and no photographs could possibly convey the true scale and beauty of their garden and huge living space we were able to enjoy. Our room was comfortable and immaculately clean. The beautiful garden is equipped with various comfortable tables and chairs where we spent a relaxing day enjoying California sunshine after a long wet winter back home in the UK. Karen and Bob are wonderful hosts who made us most welcome into their home and after a visit to their friend`s winery they invited us out for a most enjoyable evening joining their friends at a local restaurant and on Easter Sunday evening they invited us to join them for a family meal. We really enjoyed their company and highly recommend this airbnb property and thank Karen and Bob for sharing their beautiful home.
Very nice house in Carlsbad with a beautiful garden! We very much enjoyed our stay there, Karen was a kind and pleasant host!
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
