Karen's apartment is wonderful! The landscaping is beautiful and plentiful and the interior is decorated very well- without sacrificing comfort. All amenities were provided (including shampoo, coffee, dishes, utensils, extra pillows and blankets, etc) and she even includes a beach pass (which you can also use to hike in Torrey Pines-something we recommend)! We loved the big walk-in closet- it helped keep us organized. There is parking and you have your own entrance. The apartment is very close to all major highways as well as nice restaurants and the beach. The bed is comfortable and there is an abundance of light and windows- all of the interior ones can be closed. You can enjoy the sun and view on the interior porch with many seating options or in the backyard or back outdoor porch. There is a train that runs by every once in a while but is not that noticeable. Karen was a wonderful host and her apartment was beautiful with all of the comforts of home. We highly recommend!
