Rent this one! You'll LOVE it!

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this rental justice, I promise. Gene's beach backhouse is one sweet deal! While it is located above a garage, the garage does not appear to be actively used when the rental is occupied and the whole driveway and parking area in front of the garage are private to the rental. The parking setup really makes this feel like a single family rental home. The flat itself is STUNNING and has a great setup. Gorgeous wood floors, tile counters, PRIVATE trellised balcony, counter bar dining, private w/d, cable, games, books, fold out sofa (with a SUPER COMFY foam mattress). Minutes from eclectic downtown Carlsbad and the beach. When in the area again, we will definitely be back! Thanks Gene! - Savannah, Crilll, and Mason

Wonderful Place - Far Superior to a Hotel!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our 7-month-old baby, stayed here for five nights. It was a fantastic place that exceeded all of our expectations! We were deciding whether to book a stay here, or in a cheap (comparably priced) hotel on Hotel Circle. I feel so fortunate that we got in touch with Gene, and stayed at his place. The apartment was immaculate and very comfortable. There was a fully operational kitchen, which came in handy for making breakfast, heating up leftovers, and feeding the baby throughout the night. We slept very comfortably in the bedroom, and ate outside on the patio, which felt very private. Gene surprised us with several kinds of chocolate and fruit, which I really enjoyed. He was a fantastic host. The beach is about a five minute drive, though parking can be a problem if you go during the middle of the day. (We went in the evenings, and found parking very close to the beach with no trouble, and it's a gorgeous beach.) The drive to San Diego proper is about 35 minutes (can be more depending on traffic), but I can honestly say that the drive was not a problem for us. It was nice to have some time to unwind in the car and let the baby nap. Thanks for a wonderful vacation, Gene!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

My daughter, 3 y/o grandson and myself stayed here for 5 nights. The apartment was clean and we were surprised with a bottle of wine, chocolates and fruit on the counter when we arrived. We enjoyed eating our breakfast on the nice patio. It is a great place for fixing your own meals (which comes in handy with a 3 yr. old). It is pretty well stocked with kitchen equipment. It is an easy drive to Legoland and the beach. Carlsbad Village is a great area to explore. Owner was very responsive.

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was clean, perfect size for a small family. Driveway was very narrow til you got past the owners house, then it opened up with plenty of room to turn around. Hardwood floors throughout, plenty of beautiful plants to look at, and birds singing in the mornings. Very easy to get to the beach and Carlsbad village for shopping. Owner was very accommodating.

Lovely, clean spot close to downtown Carlsbad

  • 5 of 5

My wife and toddler son stayed here for a couple of nights and loved our stay. The unit was above a garage. The unit itself had nice wood floors and was stocked with some snacks and spices, which were great to have if you want to cook. The outdoor patio is lovely and the tv had more channels than we could count. The outdoor washer/dryer was a big plus...we didn't have to pack all those dirty clothes back into our suitcase! Would definitely stay here again.
