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.

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!
We were very delighted when we arrived at Lori's condo. VERY tidy and clean. THANK YOU! Great layout with the 2 bedrooms, room for an extra person in the living (to sleep on couch) not the pull out though (good only for small child).
The location was very convenient to any San Diego attractions, up the beach to Oceanside and really easy access to the highway system.
The master bed and pillows were not that comfortable to me (sore back and neck all week) - but it's not home - might be fine for someone else. Although there were plenty of linens, towels - everything you needed really.
Everything (kitchen etc.) was in excellent working condition, had all needed dishes to make meals, although we had to purchase a $1 spatula to flip pancakes and eggs; but that's okay.
Enjoyed our stay. Thank you Lori!
Lori's condo was a great place for us to call home; we ended up staying for 2.5 months. The condo has everything you need and is clean and comfortable; the pool was a great diversion on warm days.
Walking anywhere from the complex is a fair effort, but the beach and village are only a short drive away.
Lori was responsive to all questions/emails and very accommodating. We had slight hiccup around check in and communication, but we were able to get into the condo later that afternoon.
I would highly recommend the condo to anyone visiting Carlsbad and surrounds!
Lori was a wonderful hostess. I booked last minute and Lori made sure the place was spotless when I arrived. The home is spacious, modern and very comfortable. It was nice walking to the beach and enjoying a drink on the large balcony. I would definitely recommend Loris home to anyone wanting a getaway in Carlsbad!
Great place, big, very clean. Walking distance to the beach, swimming pool and Jacuzzi available in the complex
Thank you Lori for making our vacation so much better because of this accommodation. Highly recommend
It was pleasure to host Lori & Charles and thier beautiful well behaved dog. They were very clean and quiet guests. Also, they were very understanding that I am new to hosting people in my home, they were my second set of guests ever.
I have to be honest, there were a few problems, which shows why it is so important for guests to READ & FOLLOW the rules!
I never met Lori during their 2 night stay, however, she came to our kitchen door very angry. She told my daughter she had to JUMP THE FENCE because the gate code didn't work. Jumping our fences are totally unacceptable. Had she read her check-in instructions, she would have had her key & used her gate. The instructions clearly state you will only use the electronic gate ONE TIME, UPON YOUR ARRIVAL. Once you enter your unit, you will find your KEYS & use YOUR GUEST GATE.
The 2nd incident was the morning of their check-out when I received a phone call from my neighbor complaining that one of my guests was standing on the st. out front of the gate yelling "Juliett." Guests come & go, but I have to live here, as I have for the past 20 yrs. The last thing I want is problems with my neighbors! As it turns out, one of the ladies had locked herself out, again! There is no excuse for this, as we provide each unit 2 gate keys, in case guests come & go separately.
This time I met Juliette, a pretty young lady and dutiful daughter who doted on her sweet elderly mother. They checked out on time and left the unit in good condition. I allowed them to relax in the yard for awhile after, and enjoyed speaking with them, until someone started blowing the horn for them at the street. Please guests, communicate via cell rather than horn blowing!
Lori and her husband are wonderful Guests. They communicated fluently and kept the apartment in perfect condition. I recommend her to anyone on the (website hidden).
Always a pleasure to host Lori and company! They are low key, friendly and fun. Was glad the could come enjoy the incredible weather and casita again.
Lori and Charles were perfect guests and enjoyed having them rent our casita. They were our first guests to rent the casita and are also Airbnb hosts. They were helpful and gracious in giving us great tips about renting the casita. We hope that we get to host Lori and Charles again, as they only stayed one night-would love to have the opportunity to visit with them more.
Thank you Stan and Denise, we did enjoy it, I really like the Tuscany style decorations. We will stay again when we are in the area, we hope to see you sometime this winter!
Lori and Charles were wonderful guests. They arrived when expected, were quiet and considerate and left the cottage clean, locked up and even turned the furnace off when they left.
Lori was a great guest. She was communicative and very friendly, and took great care of my place. It's always a pleasure to have her!
