About the owner: Hi, We are Bob and Monica Flora, the owners of 155 Walnut Ave, Carlsbad, CA 92008. We live only 10 minutes away from the cottage but we still love to come and stay there becaause it is so relaxing. We love walking along the beach and walking up to Cafe Ellyse or Vinaka's in the village for a coffee. We have 2 sons who love the ocean and have a major passion for surfing and fishing. We enjoy meeting the different people that we have hosted from all over the world. In the past 13 years we have hosted people from all over Europe, the United States, Australia and New Zealand. We have also had two girls from Germany stay with us at our house. Monica is originally from Vancouver Island in British Columbia. Her sister and 3 brothers still live in British Columbia. Her 2 older brothers were born in Austria before her parents migrated to Canada and she has a number of relatives living in Austria. Monica previously worked in medical billing. She currently works as a licensed massage therapist and completed education as a holistic health practitioner in 2015. She enjoys making floral arrangements, exercise and outdoor activities among other interests. Bob grew up in Sturgis Mich and went to the University of Michigan for 2 years before moving to San Diego and finishing his Engineering degree. Bob lived in Italy(Sicily) for 9 months and enjoyed meeting people from other cultures while traveling. Bob enjoys sports, travel and outdoor activities(beach, skiing, hiking). O yeah, we can't forget the animals. We have 2 dogs named Calvin(Bischon-Schnauzer) and a rescue named Jack because he looks like a giant Jack Russel terrior. Calvin loves walking along the boardwalk in Carlsbad to socialize with the other dogs.
Why the Owner Chose Carlsbad Village, Carlsbad, CA, USA:
We bought this cottage with the ultimate goal of retiring here because it is located in the heart of one of the nicest spots on the earth(San Diego North County). The ocean is close enough to hear the waves, the beach is great, the village is at your doorstep(the car stays parked), the weather is awesome, the people are friendly, hiking, biking, shopping, restaurants, nightlife...I mean really, what's not to like? We will be doing a major expansion and reno on the house in 2017.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This has got to be one of the most relaxing places to be at. The stress of everyday life just melts away and you can really enjoy experiencing the moment with your friends and family.
