Hi, I'm Donna!
Our quaint cottage is located is the small coastal village of Carlsbad . The very first thing we do is open the front door and welcome in the gentle sea breeze . We have the the most awesome view of the water without leaving our sofa. Summer or winter , the feeling is the same .Our family has enjoyed our cottage for thirty years and we have spent many summers in this neighborhood . We love all our neighbors who we have known for so long . We have fished in the lagoon, kayaked in the back bay area . Our family loves to walk the "board walk" into the Village and watch the sun setting by the thatched cafe where the village people gather to do a count down . On the weekend there are often people who come to entertain us as the sun is setting , sort of like a little key west .Our quaint cottage is well known in the village as a few famous locals have resided in our cottage over the years , writing and recording music.
Country singer , Jewels , was recorded in our cottage before she became famous , by Arno Kimsey who had a band " FRIENDS" . Later on the bluegrass group , NICKLE CREEK wrote and recorded music in this little cottage by the sea . Often times they would put on a concert for the neighbors .
Our guests return often and stay longer each year and it has been such a joy to meet such wonderful and charming folks from all over the world . Nothing makes up happier than to see our guests relaxing and having a great stay .
Aloha , Joe and Donna Osterkamp
