I very much enjoyed my stay at this apartment in Carlsbad. There were a few bumps along the way, but the owner was very nice and eager to please.
-The apartment is decorated beautifully. It looks like a professional decorator was hired. High-end (Ralph Lauren throw pillows!), comfortable, and very much in line with my tastes.
-The location cannot be beat. You can walk to everything, including the beach and train station.
-The kitchen was well equipped, including a spice rack and cooking oils. We cooked everyday. The utensils and dishes are sort of older but I expect that in a vacation rental.
-The apartment was well equipped in general- beach gear, extra towels, magazines, DVDs, books, some toiletries etc. TV tables are in the bedroom closet! We used those every day.
-The linens were great. I am super picky about sheets and blankets and these seemed practically brand new and very clean. No gross comforter here!
