Guestbook comments from the owner

9/17/06 Wow! What an amazing place you have here. We so thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I loved the Oceanside Pier and walking on the beach. Also the quilt like shower curtain. We are here celebrating our cousin Dale's 60th birthday. What a blessing. Thanks so much.

Sweet Cottage

We had a wonderful stay at this cottage. We visit Carlsbad every summer, however, this summer we not only came for a visit but celebrated our son's wedding in Carlsbad. We couldn't have asked for a better location and the cottage was everything we had hoped for if not more. Very clean, spacious, and true to the description that is advertised. We could walk to almost everywhere we wanted to escape to; the beach only a few minutes away as well as restaurants and shopping. We used the beach cruisers that were available to do some further exploring. The owners are so kind and gracious. Thank you for the awesome memories!!

Wonderful location, right near the beach and Village!

There were four of us (two couples) who stayed in this charming little house for three nights. It was just perfect for two couples; it's a converted duplex, so there are two kitchen sinks and two different sitting areas, which made cooking and relaxing very easy. And we did a lot of cooking, grilling fresh fish for most of our meals on the nice grill in the back yard. Each bedroom had a bathroom nearby, and while the bedrooms are rather small, they were just fine. The house is decorated very nicely and has quite a bit of character. Though it is somewhat jammed between two larger buildings, that didn't bother us. And it was very nice to have a spacious driveway off the street, as the street was often full of beach-goers' cars.

Speaking of the beach, it was just beautiful, and a short block away. And Carlsbad Village is right there also... just a few short blocks to all kinds of dining and shopping. We also hopped on the Coaster train in Carlsbad Village for a nice worry-free trip down to Old Town San Diego... why bother with freeways and parking?

We won't hesitate to stay here again! Our only regret is that we didn't get out on the 4 beach bikes!

Perfect location. Well equipped with beach "toys" for adults and children. Ample parking which is scarce in the area. Walking distance to great restaurants. Bedrooms are very small but accurately represented.

The cottage was great ! It is close to the village and the beach. So much better than a hotel. We will be booking it again, when we come out to visit our son and his family. If the bar on the corner was quieter, it would be perfect. Bob made everything about the rental very easy and laid back. We will be calling you again, Bob.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jim, it's easy to have a good time there for sure. If we didn't have to pay the mortgage we'd be there a lot more ourselves! Bob
