“Very beautiful and comfortable.”
Michele and her husband are perfect hosts. The guest house is beautifully appointed and very private. The bathroom is an experience in itself. We were treated to homemade cookies and a lovely bottle of wine. We were only there for two nights, but wished we had had more time. There is a lovely private courtyard with a fountain, making it a perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the birds. We highly recommend the Funkhouser retreat. Judy & Frank J.
“Lovely peaceful home away from home”
I selected this accommodation based on the previous reviews and also by the pictures online. I was pleased upon arrival that the pictures of the house were spot on and the house looks exactly as depicted. What the pictures can't capture is the serenity of the garden setting, with flowers and beautiful birds visiting the fountain. I was pleasantly surprised by how calming the atmosphere is there. The owner had baked an orange cake for us and left us a complimentary bottle of wine that were both excellent. She made us feel welcome and comfortable to relax in privacy. I would have given all top ratings, except that there was a bit of a heat wave when we arrived for our stay, and there was no air conditioning available. Other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Response from the owner It was unusually warm in September this year and not the norm for my area in Carlsbad, but I've purchased an air conditioning unit for the guesthouse that will be installed before the end of this year. Thanks Rosalind for your review, I appreciate it! Michele
“A perfect location!”
The home is perfect for vacationers. We feel right at home, its convenient, cozy and has everything you need for your stay. It is located near a grocery store, the beach and good roads. What more could you want or need!
We so enjoyed our stay in this quaint little guest house. Very relaxing and comfortable, just wish the weather would have been alittle warmer to enjoy more of the lovely patio area. But we did enjoy the sounds of the fountains from inside and watching all the different birds. We arrived to lovely fresh flowers, fresh baked cookies and a nice bottle of wine! Thank you Michele.
“Beautiful, relaxing place!”
The sound of the fountain outside our door, the lush gardens, the comfortable bed, and well equipped kitchen made our stay fantastic! The hostess is graciousness personified!
Love, love, love this home away from home. Great hospitality and goodies from Michelle. Close to beach and family.
This vacation rental was incredible! After spending all day (8 days of boogie boarding, surfing and swimming) on the beach it was great to come "home", clean up in the spacious shower, relax. Everything we needed was provided and then some. We have done many vacation rentals and this one was the best by far. The Welcome Basket was such a nice touch that I teared up! (driving 7 hours on arrival day and 11 the day before had something to do with that-it was wonderful to get to the rental)We enjoyed not only the house but the patio and fountain. It was a nice way to unwind with a book. There was always a nice breeze that came through the house and patio to cool us down. Restaurants, grocery store and the Village are close by. We will return in the future.
“Wonderful homey atmosphere that was easy to relax in”
We travelled in September to visit family with our then 9-month old. We so enjoyed staying at this wonderful place. It was nice to have a place to go to relax at the end of a long sight-seeing day that felt like home. All transactions and communications were extremely smooth. Thanks for a great vacation!
“Tranquil, relaxing stay.”
Michele's guest cottage is just beautiful - like spending time in a relaxing spa atmosphere. The cottage is immaculate and the soothing sound of the fountain outside your window adds to the experience. Michele is the perfect hostess - there when you need her for advice on the area but allowing for the privacy of her guests. We enjoyed the welcome basket with her homemade baked goods. Good location within a short drive to the beach and many restaurants in Carlsbad Village. We couldn't have had a more pleasant stay.
“More than we ever expected”
This cottage is our favorite get-a-way spot on the West Coast. It provides the feeling of a very comfortable home coupled with ultra-modern accommodations and a peaceful environment. It is almost so nice that we really don't want to share the experience. This is an annual vacation spot for us.
