Wonderful Stay - Wonderful Home - Great Location

March 4, 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.

Beautiful, peaceful Carlsbad retreat

October 11, 2013

This home was rented for a party of 7. All of us were completely comfortable and happy in this clean, quiet, well-maintained Carlsbad home. A backyard patio offers a relaxing setting for a meal outside. The owners were friendly and accommodating, making themselves available to answer any questions we had (although we really had none come up). I highly recommend this rental.

3rd year running

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!

January 11, 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

July 12, 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!

Better Than a Hotel Room

March 25, 2010

Visiting Carlsbad to attend a family wedding and didn't want to keep a 1 1/2 year old cooped up in a hotel room for 3 days. The Loftin home was our answer. The backyard was peaceful and safe our my grandaughter. We could walk to the beach or the nearby shopping center to stock up on food. There were 7 of us and plenty of room to eat, sleep and get ready to attend a wedding. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Exceptional vacation home

July 19, 2009

Our family, nine in all, spent a very comfortable and convenient stay while readying ourselves for daughter's wedding. Beautiful home inside and out. It was large enough for all us to have some space and yet easy for dressing, makeup, etc. Kitchen is very well equipped. Great response by owners. Wonderful time!

Very Pleased

May 6, 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

Amazing Family Vacation

August 26, 2008

This beach vacation was amazing. The house was perfect, very family friendly and comfortable. Carlsbad is one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. It is very clean and not too crowded. There is plenty to enjoy in the surrounding areas however we spent the whole week at the beach and relaxing at the house and it was perfect. We all had a great time, one we'll never forget and we can't wait to go again.
