"A colleague and I attended a conference at the Sheraton on Harbor Island in February. We like to have some distance from the actual conference hotel, so we looked around for alternative places to stay. I stumbled upon Mauna Aloha and inquired. Amos responded almost immediately and even called to make sure I got through the reservation process. He was perfectly clear in how to communicate with him when we arrived. We flew to San Diego on February 17th. I called Amos to tell him we had landed and he drove to the airport to get us! Who does that?
We stayed on the Mauna Aloha for four nights. The beds were so comfy and the rooms were perfect. We spent a lot of time on deck sitting at the table chatting and enjoying the harbor. There were plenty of hotels and a little market nearby, and taxis to go anyplace were regularly driving down Harbor Drive. The yacht stay was perfect! Word got out at the conference that we were staying on a yacht. People were so jealous. When I told them the yacht was less expensive than a sterile hotel room at the Sheraton, they were convinced. I hope Amos and Shari gets lots of reservations for their boats in the future. I highly recommend this fun place to lodge."

"We have stayed many times in the busy mission/pacific beach area and never felt the peacefulness and relaxation that we felt staying here. The house has everything we needed for our group of 2 adults and 4 high school age boys. It felt so much like home we didn't want to leave. Full kitchen, full size laundry machines , nearby grocery shopping and great dining out just added to the beautiful beach, ocean and breezes. We rented surfboards and wetsuits for cheap and that was all the extras we added for our awesome week stay. Thank you Tina & Gary, we will be back!"

"We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful, very spacious, 3 bedroom home in Carlsbad. The home is in a very convenient location, beautifully furnished, and has all the comforts of home you need to make this a home you want to visit again and again. Only miles away from the Carlsbad city beach and Legoland. Convenient grocery shopping nearby with great restaurants available for lunch or a casual dinner and San Diego is only a 30 minute drive away. We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at our favorite restaurant, Jake's Del Mar right on the ocean. The owner was very accommodating and easy to communicate with and made sure we had everything we need to enjoy our vacation. I would recommend this home to anyone traveling or vacationing in the area."
