Easy going and funny.
Yes, I did feel welcome at Jo's place. I had the place to myself most of the time. Everything was clean and tiny. It is very close to the ocean and that is wonderful. I got to use the kitchen and fix my own meals. I even got lucky one evening when Jo and I shared a meal together in the kitchen. He is a delightful host.
Had to change to a different apartment due to a flooding problem, but it was a nice apartment close to the beach
Clean and functional! This was a nice place to stay. We were on a business trip and were out of the apt from 7:30am-8pm everyday. Joseph was very respectful of our request for quiet and we greatly appreciated it. His place is very convenient to everything and we would like to have stayed longer to enjoy Carlsbad more.
The room is small and with a trundle bed which pulls out into 2 twin beds. We didn't know that in advance and would have chosen another location to stay if we did. Cosy is a nice way of saying cramped, and with 2 large suitcases we were having to dance around each other while in the room. The apt overall is clean and open. The shower head was a little low but had fantastic flow - which along gets my vote for great place to stay. I would recommend staying here, but not as a romantic weekend get-away.
Easy walking distance to the beach.
Dirty, unsanitary. Host provided maid service after we complained, but it was 20 hours after we arrived. There was no central heating, (wall unit inoperable) only 2 portable heaters in the bedrooms.
Our hosts were great about getting us in on short notice, and my friends and I loved the apartment. Don't let the lack of pictures dissuade you; everything about the place fulfilled our expectations, and the location is awesome. It's an easy 15 minutes walk from the location to downtown Carlsbad. It was exactly what we were looking for and exactly as advertised.
We will definitely be back for all our trips to Carlsbad in the future!
The reservation was canceled 32 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Hosts were great. Listing was very accurate, especially the part about steps away from the beach, which was beautiful.
Joseph was very welcoming. The apartment was close to the beach and I liked that it was walking distance to everything we needed.
The place was adorable, and it was so close to the beach!
They are the exact kind of guests everyone wants! They were really lovely guests. They have warm personalities and lots of positive energy. They treated the house with respect, leaving everything clean and in good order, and communication was excellent. They are very kind and generous people. It was truly a pleasure to have them.
