Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This was the absolute greatest space we could have chosen for our family trip. Ann was the kindest, most helpful host and we loved everything about the house and area. It really is an incredible space and the outdoor spaces (plural) made it even more so. As for the location, it's close enough to downtown to easily get there from either backroads or the highway but far enough away to give you the peace you're looking for in a vacation. We walked to breakfast nearby, to a record shop, for dessert one night, etc. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks to Ann for sharing her slice of tranquility with our family!

Ann's home is wonderful, and she was a great host. The views and privacy were even better than the photos. Didn't want to leave this amazing place.

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Ann is a gracious host and her home is lovely. The location couldn't be better. We had a spectacular view from the kitchen table and sunshine streaming in through the windows. The house is minutes away from Balboa Park, the zoo and freeway access to everything else. We would be happy to stay here again and highly recommend it.

Winter Escape to beautiful home overlooking Balboa Park

  • 5 of 5

This 2 bed 2 bath home was beautifully decorated with eclectic souvenirs from the owners travel experiences. My almost 3 year old daughter loved this because there was always something to keep her attention. The home was very clean and contained all the amenities needed to make breakfast and watch the sunrise up over Balboa Park.

The beds were very comfortable and we spent much of our time there enjoying her fabulous backyard. The outdoor furniture was perfect for lounging and a hammock available for relaxing. She had two Adirondack chairs facing the beautiful views of the park and a dog park within walking distance.

Anne greeted us upon arrival with a tour of her home and left us a welcome basket with sparkling water, coffee, candies, and chocolate milk to keep my toddler happy. She kept in contact the whole trip with restaurant and store recommendations within walking distance. South Park felt like a very safe place to walk around, always lots of people out with kids and dogs everywhere. She also went out of her way to let us borrow beach toys for a day trip to Coronado beach. Perfect place to stay if visiting the zoo, it is only minutes away and you don't have to deal with traffic! Only a 20 minute drive to beautiful Pacific Beach and La Jolla. Overall we had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend. My family already wants to return!

Perfect month for us.

  • 5 of 5

Ann's was a warm, and gracious host. Her location was ideal for us since we love to walk, especially the Balboa Park Golf Course after it had closed to golfers in the late afternoon. Ann's gate from her back yard opens onto the course. The home is at a street end, so it is extremely private. The neighborhood was also very inviting with cute bistros within a couple of blocks. Ann's home was comfortable and spacious for the two of us, with lots of light and the views to the west are amazing, including sunset and downtown. Two patios invite being outside. The front bedroom is the most quiet since it faces east, away from the flight path to the airport while the the master faces west so there is more airplane noise. The main bathroom has a big counter, one sink, and a claw foot bathtub, but no shower. One limitation is that both bedrooms are access points. To get to the upper patio you walk through the master bedroom, and to get to the shower in the small half bath you go through the front bedroom. If privacy or separation was important, this might be an issue.
