  • Exceptional Rental Property

    "Three years ago we rented this beautiful condo for two months in an effort to escape the harsh New England winter. From that first wonderful stay it has become our yearly winter home away from home. If you are looking for a condo in San Diego that is perfect in every way then this is it! The downtown location is superb. Although there is an assigned parking space in a private garage under the building, you can leave your car at home. Located steps away is the Green Line trolley which can connect you to pretty much anywhere you want to go in addition to a wonderful bus system that can fine tune your destination. If you happen to be over 60, the cost for a monthly transit pass (unlimited use of all buses and trolleys) is only $18.00 (plus one time only fee of $2.00 to purchase transit card). The Gas Lamp district, located only a block away, affords all the dining and entertainment options you could possibly want along with fun shops and a movie theater. One might be concerned that with it's proximity to the trolley and Gas lamp the condo could be noisy. I assure you it isn't! Our winter stays have included both Mardi Gras and St. Patrick's Day celebrations (major parties) in the Gas Lamp and we have never heard any noise from within the condo. Located just a short walk away is a Ralph's grocery store and CVS is nearby as well. It is even a quick trip to Costco via the bus! Ready for a day of fun and adventure? Walk out the door, hop on the trolley and/or bus and soon you'll be at Sea World, beautiful Pacific Beach, Old Town, Coronado, La Jolla and the list goes on and on. Not to be missed is beautiful Balboa Park (bus 7 or 215!) home to the famous San Diego zoo. Don't miss the zoo but make sure you plan to spend another day or so at Balboa Park itself. It is a gem. After a long fun-filled day, returning to this condo is blissful. It is beautifully and tastefully decorated and has everything in the way of dishes, pots/pans, glasses, etc. that you could ever need. It is the best equipped rental in which we have ever stayed. No review of this wonderful spot would be complete without a comment about the owner. From our initial contact three years ago to the present time, he has been exceptional. When we first considered renting this place I had several questions. All my inquiries were answered promptly and he offered many excellent suggestions. He makes you feel like you are dealing with a friend as opposed to a landlord. I highly recommend this condo!"

  • Perfect for Conference Accomodations!

    "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."

    "One reason we chose this rental was because of all the very positive prior reviews. We are so appreciative of those comments and enthusistically second all of them. We would like to thank and praise the host for providing so many comforts and for prompt response to any inquiry . We very much enjoyed our stay, had no problems whatsoever, and hope we can return in the future."

  • Deats Gang

    "Mr. David and Miss Angela, I do not even know were to start. First off a big Thank You for helping to make some enjoyable memories. I would recommend your condo's to anyone that is looking for a place to stay. For those that are looking for an affordable get away you have no farther to look but to any place these wonderful people offer. I looked all over to find a place, being that I am not made of money and once I talked to the Holbrooks' on the phone, my looking stopped. I could tell that they were honest just by their voice and then I was blessed to meet them in person. What you describe on your web is just as you show and say. The only problem that I found is that I want to move there now! I hope everyone that enjoys your condo will add to the memory photo album their picture too. God bless you both my special friends."
