About Me

Hi, I'm Fay! I am a retired teacher of 30 years, now living the dream in Carlsbad, CA. I love people and am by nature, very outgoing and passionate in serving others.  There is nothing more important to me than relationships as I pride myself in making others happy, and providing unparalleled customer service to welcome guests from around the world.  I am proud that we reside in the very community which we service, as we live where people vacation.

What I Love About Carlsbad & Oceanside

We live where people vacation, and this makes Carlsbad and Oceanside the ideal coastal cities in which to reside. Carlsbad is a hidden gem attracting year-round tourists from across the globe. The pristine beaches, award winning restaurants, and the endless activities are among the many reasons people visit. What do I love about my city? EVERYTHING.

Owner & Operator

About Me

A retired CPA, I owned and operated a successful and meticulously run accounting practice for over 30 years. My background and knowledge includes establishing strong relationships with clients based on trust and integrity, and having strong critical thinking abilities to identify issues and provide solutions to a wide range of clients.  I also owned and managed my own office building with multiple professional tenants for over 20 years.    


To say that we are surrounded by paradise is a pallid understatement. The people of Carlsbad and Oceanside are down-to-earth and incredibly friendly.  Our coastal towns are known for their chilled and laid-back attitude.  It’s no wonder people come here to relax and rejuvenate.

What I Love About Carlsbad & Oceanside

I love Carlsbad and Oceanside because there are endless outdoor activities in which to partake. We have the envious weather of the world, and the ocean is right there. When our friends and family visit, they don’t want to leave.

About Me

Hi, I’m Andrew, and I love working out and playing the guitar. Although those are my primary passions, I also enjoy spending time alone walking by the beach and listening to music.  I have dabbled with culinary dishes and enjoy cooking my own meals. I’m inspired by a healthy lifestyle, and Southern California offers just that.


I love everything about Carlsbad and Oceanside, especially the great restaurants. One of my favorites is the Veggie Grill which has some amazing vegan and plant-based food. The Japanese Katsu Sliders are out of this world!
