I'm a southern California native, who has lived resided and worked in beautiful Carlsbad for over thirty years.
I loved staying here. It was really comfortable and very nice. Great view of the beautiful garden from the kitchen table, with a nice breeze coming through. Comfy bed and pillows. Great shower. Sita was very attentive and available. It was one of my best trips ever!
Sita was an awesome host! The space was EXACTLY like the pictures (although I think the garden is even nicer.) It was quiet, clean and serene. I am so glad I stayed and would definitely go back. Everything is nearby including a fantastic Thai restaurant in walking distance. I felt totally welcomed and was incredibly comfortable. Thanks Sita!
We loved this place!! Sita was a wonderful hostess - she went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and happy, even leaving us treats upon arrival and throughout our stay. The studio was beautiful, well-decorated, clean and comfortable. We would come back if ever in Carlsbad again.
Sita's place was perfect for what we needed. Close to I-5 and the beach. Lovely garden to look at. We had a lot of space and were able to cook in or eat in. She provided us with beach towels, blanket and umbrella. She's really sweet and will help you with anything.
Loved our little table by the window where we could just look out and eat our breakfast. Everything was great!
We had a wonderful stay in Sita's studio. The whole experience was great and she and the neighbors are all very nice. Her studio is located close enough to the village that we would walk into town and the beach everyday. If you're looking for a quiet place to stay this is your place!
Our experience was wonderful in every way! We wanted our own little space while visiting our daughter and grandkids in Carlsbad and this place was perfect. The apartment is well planned with every convenience (including coffee, welcoming tarts from a local bakery, and fresh flowers on the table) and in a very quiet neighborhood. Even though it is in a suburban residential neighborhood, there is a small barn with a horse next door and some beautiful cats and dogs. (We are animal lovers, so this was a plus to us!) The gardens surrounding the house are lovely, with a tropical feel. The bed was comfy and the futon was fine for our college-aged daughter. The shower is heavenly with a large shower head. We stayed 10 days and toward the end of the week Sita asked if we needed clean linens or anything else, which we did not. She had already thought of everything! She is friendly, but allowed us our privacy to come and go as we wished, since the apartment has a separate entrance. There is a nice park and a Thai restaurant within walking distance. Although the beach is close, it was best to drive there due to a busy road that must be crossed. (There is free public parking in Carlsbad Village, so this is no problem.) I would definitely stay with Sita again. It was a wonderful, wonderful vacation!!
The studio was funky. The toilet didn't flush when we got there. Issue was resolved but after two calls to Sita. None of the lights were on a switch - had to plug stuff in. The kitchen equipment was minimal. The place looked like an add on to the house - loft that was converted to a studio. The yard looked haphazard - no clean, comfortable place to sit outside. The location was great - about a mile from the beach, shopping and restaurants. Very close to the interstate but no noise. No air conditioning - heat was a portable space heater.
Wow Good price for a good apart! It was clean, beautiful, perfect for a small or a long stay. I recommand to go there. We stay one week and we have good time. If we come back in Carlsbad, we will be back to Sita!!
Super endroit et à bon prix. C'était super propre, beau. Je recommande cet endroit. On est resté une semaine et on a apprécié l'endroit. À 20 minutes à pied de la plage. Un endroit tranquille!!
We had a wonderful stay at Sita's lovely studio! The place was even better than the photos and had everything we needed. The location couldn't be better, easy access to the 5 and 78 freeways and super close to downtown Carlsbad/ the beach. Sita was a great host, easy to get in contact with but in no way invasive to our space. It really felt like our very own place for the week. I will definitely be back next time I'm in San Diego!
My fiance and I recently stayed at Sita's beautiful studio for our Thanksgiving holiday. From our initial arrival and throughout our stay, we felt completely at home by the decor and ambiance. The studio is stylishly and uniquely furnished, clean, and is extremely spacious. Amenities are provided, as well free wifi, and a fully stocked kitchen for any cooking needs. There is a gorgeous herb garden, and the studio is in close proximity to I-5 with no freeway noise. Sita was very flexible with our check-in needs, and even left us a slice of delicious cheesecake and flowers. I would highly recommend staying at Sita's studio, and will be looking forward to our next stay.
