My family and have been going to Carlsbad for the last 4-5 years and we usually stay at a different place but was booked for our travel time. I looked and found Kalim's place. The pictures looked good but it was better in person. He just finished a year long renovation and it turned out great. We rented both sides of the duplex and the separation was great for our teenaged kids, well and me as well. The property was set up for wheel chair access but it certainly did not have that feel. Kalim decorated it very beachy and was nicely designed. When we arrived Kalim was at the road side with a big welcoming smile and was sincerely happy to have us there. He made us feel so welcome, it just added to the pleasant experience we had. Kalim explained he was going for a "healing" vibe for people in wheel chairs when he was renovating. He explained the plants had come from family land and it all lent itself to the "healing" vibe. I am not in a wheel chair but I did need to be healed of some stress. This place certainly helped alleviate some of my stress. Kalim was there with his smiling face which helped "heal" me from some of life's stresses. I don't want this place to seem to good to be true because then I won't be able to book in the future, but the truth is, it is awesome. Kalim, we will be back. Thank you for everything. Remeber your friends from Tempe, AZ.
