“Wonderful Stay - Wonderful Home - Great Location”

Reviewed 4 Mar 2015

My wife and I stayed in Roger and Linda's home for the month of February, 2015. The home is very comfortable and it was fully supplied with all that one would want for one's own home. The neighborhood is as described: traffic-free, quiet, safe and inviting, close to shops and within a 15 minute walk to a beach at a state park. The home shares a neighborhood with other well maintained and lovely homes, some occupied by young families with children, some by empty nesters whose children were raised in the neighborhood. The weather was nearly perfect for those of us fleeing winter. The hot tub in the private backyard was an attraction for our visiting children and grandchildren. That same backyard provided a nice patio with a grill and a grassed yard. Carlsbad is close to a variety of attractions and is a pleasant residential community.

Owner's reply: Kelly & Linda, We are so glad the weather cooperated! Carlsbad in Feburary is like Christmas in July!!!!!! Anyway, great guests, hope to have you back next year! Best, Roger & Linda

“3rd year running”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2013

We have been enjoying this house for 3 years now. The house is always clean and makes you feel welcomed. There are many amentities available. We have up to 8 adults and 3 children during our trips and never feel They provide beach supplies, so you don't have to bring your own if you don't want to. After you get back from the beach, you can relax in the jacuzzi. We hope to continue visiting for years to come.

“California Dreamin' is alive and well!”

Reviewed 11 Jan 2013

What a great way to experience southern California! The house is comfortable and charming, and the owners are helpful and welcoming. The kitchen was easy to use and complete with useful appliances and cooking utensils. The hot tub was a treat, especially viewing the clear night skies. It's a great place to stay in a lovely neighborhood, and we hope to return.

“Perfect Family Vacation House”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2010

Our Family just stayed here over the 4th of July, what a beautiful place to stay. Very quiet neighborhood yet close to everything. Carlsbad is a wonderful southern California getaway and staying here made our vacation truly special. P.S., there was nothing like soaking in the jacuzzi after a long day at the beach!

“Home away from Home”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2009

Linda was the nicest and most prompt person I have ever dealt with for a rental!! The house was really nice and very comfortable. We are thinking of returning to CA just to stay in their home again!! Thank you so much Roger & Linda! We do recommend Learn to Surf with Heather Pine!

“Very Pleased”

Reviewed 6 May 2009

Staying in this home exceeded our expectations. The home was very clean with all the accessories needed to stay for a week or more - we were especially pleased that the kitchen was so well setup or easy cooking which significantly lowered our cost for staying in the area as well as allowed our family (3 kids and four adults)to feel at home. The hot tub was a hit with the kids when they would come home from any activity but especially from the beach. Proximity to the beach, the Zoo, and Sea World played a large roll in why we picked this particular rental. As a parting note, we happened to arrive early and find the owners just leaving - they made us feel welcome and were helpful with orienting us to the area. Thanks. tom and jessie

“Great Holiday Get-away!”

We loved staying here! The house is beautiful and comfortable, and best of all located just a short drive from everywhere we wanted to visit. We felt like we were in our perfect home away from home! We highly recommend this wonderful home and are planning our next vacation there!

We loved our stay in this home. It was so comfortable and welcoming. We enjoyed the backyard, hot tub and barbeque grill very much. The home is beautiful but very family friendly...our family of 8 fit wonderfully. The beach toys were also awesome to have...the kids loved them!!

This has been a wonderful week with my two daughters Julie & Renee.
Your home is so endearing everyday we spot another little detail we had not noticed before. Some of you are very creative. I love the bag of pearls in the divers hand in the bathroom & the chair of Bowlies in the bedroom.
Thank you so much for sharing your lovely & very warm home with us!
