Why Donny Martinez chose Carlsbad
I bought this house because it was only a few doors down from where my grandparents lived and where I grew up. We lived in the house next door to them that my grandfather and his two sons helped him build. So lots of history and nostalgia involved in wanting to stay "close to home".
What makes this House unique
I absolutely fell in love with all of tree's that surround this property. And when the leaves are on the tree's there is plenty of shade everywhere! I totally enjoyed the back patio as it remains shaded thru out the entire day during the season. Love the huge fenced in back yard and the summer nights just sitting outside gazing at the stars. I also loved the fact that I was literally just a few blocks away from my next fishing adventure!

I was impressed the property was great to our home for a few days
I took a 14,19 yr old granddaughters a son in law we felt very comfortable and secure there we will definitely keep on our list to reuse
Well-stocked, Super Clean House with a Wonderful Host!
I spent two nights in this house with my daughters and I wish we could have stayed longer! The house was pristine, and we had plenty of room to spread out with two bedrooms and a living area. Everything was provided for us, and we even had waters and fresh fruit (with caramel dip!) waiting for us when we arrived. After a day of exploring we were able to unwind with a Netflix movie and a game of Uno. I also had a little car trouble, and Donny graciously spent his morning helping us get back on the road. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Great location and place to stay while visiting Carlsbad attractions
The house has everything you need for a vacation stay. The kitchen is fully equipped and with extras I didn't expect! Beds and places to sleep galore. Location is central to Carlsbad, close to stores and restaurants and nice in between for Caverns, Sitting Bull Falls, Brantley Lake and other attractions nearby. Our kids loved staying there and having the Roku too! I would stay here again on our next visit to the area. Owners attentive and kind!
Basic clean accommodations, great owner
This property is in a modest residential neighborhood right off the main drag. There is nothing fancy in terms of furnishings, but the necessary pieces are there and are new because the owner is trying hard to upgrade the property all the time. Property is very clean. The owner is very responsive, and gave good recommendations for local dining. I need to mention that because this house is very close to neighbors, barking dogs may interrupt your day or night. The owner is trying to limit this inconvenience by building a privacy fence along his property line. Hotels in the area are quite pricey, so this is a good value.
And thank you again for selecting to stay with us! And thank you for taking a minute to let us know how we're doing. Glad I was able to help on the dining end as Carlsbad does have many great choices to dine. Being that the house is located just 2 blocks from the main street that runs thru Carlsbad also known as Hwy 285 north to Roswell and south to White's City and the Carlsbad Caverns...we hope is a convenient location in getting our guest to their destination of choice. during their stay in Carlsbad. Yup...the dogs. But as dogs will do...their instinct is to let their owners know that someone is approaching or simply acknowledging their territory. Yes as you have mentioned.. I am currently working to eliminate the line of sight concerning that issue by constructing a privacy fence that will span the entire east side of the property. The back yard I am happy to say is now completed and should have the front completed by the end of next week. Thank you for the compliment concerning the property Susan..I do work hard to maintain it and I really do appreciate it.
Have a great summer and we hope to have you folks back soon!

PS. Thanks for the tip concerning the tub mat!
Great value and congenial host
Plenty of room, very functional kitchen, and reasonably-priced. We visited Carslbad primarily so we could tour the namesake national park (which didn't disappoint). We did not need a fancy place, just a clean one with basic necessities (bath, kitchen, comfortable bed), and this delivered. Laundry was a welcome extra. House stayed cool, though outside temps not bad during our visit.
Definitely a local neighborhood. The next door dog (large pit bull type) was a bit worrisome at first, but he was wagging as he barked and was quiet except when we first arrived. There is a fence separating, and he is tied up...
Our host was in touch, responded promptly, and thoughtfully left us snacks and cold water.
Nice enjoyable stay
Clean inviting home. We enjoyed our stay there.
