Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay at the Mermaid House, it was close to everything we wanted to do. We enjoyed bbqing and the lovely back yard. Neighborhood was nice and quiet and beautiful sounds of birds in the canyon for morning coffee. We are going to book for two weeks next summer

The kitchen was well stocked with any cooking equipment we needed. The host, Gayle, was very responsive to any questions or concerns we had. We will definetely be back!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Mermaid House. It was very clean, cutely decorated and the back deck with the fire pit and bbq grill was a plus!!

We found the location to be fairly central to the activities we had planned.

We would definitly stay here again when visiting the San Diego area!

Very nice, good discription.

  • 4 of 5

The house was exactly what was described. Three bedrooms with the ability to sleep up to six 6 people...the listing says bunk bed-but it is a trundle and this was obvious from the picture, but if you expect a bunk bed you will be disappointed. The house does not have A/C but the owner provided fans, which helped, but we were disappointed every day we came home and the house was 80 degrees. At night the air outside was cooler than the house but the temperature inside never got below 73. This was our mistake for assuming a house that we were renting for $200/day would have AC but we didn't think it would be necessary to verify from the list of amenities if it did or not. The second negative for us was the house can sleep 6 but both tables (inside and out) can only seat 4, there were multiple seating surfaces but if you had a family (like we do) and wanted to eat together you would not be able to. We also could not find the DVD player that was listed on the amenities list, but we didn't ask about it either so maybe it was hidden somewhere. Finally, though the house was clean and it was obvious the owner took that very seriously, the "master" bathroom and vanity had ants. We never saw any ants outside of that area. As I said the house was exactly as described and we had a wonderful vacation there otherwise and appreciated having our space and not using a hotel.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. Ants were present in the master bath area, and I have since had the house treated and all ants are gone. I moved the DVD player out into plane site so it is easier to find and use. Additionally I removed the 4 person glass table and installed a wood 6 person table (with additional two chairs to seat 8) additionally the outdoor table can also seat 8. I am sorry you hit such a hot spell in San Diego, usually being so close to the coast and with the canyon breezes it stays nice and cool. Gayle Mermaid House

This is a great house to stay in when visiting San Diego. Great location, close to the beaches, restaurants and Sea World. Amazing backyard patio looking over a canyon, perfect for evening relaxation or dinner. Owner is great to work with. Definitely my place to stay next time I'm in San Diego!

Had a great in Mt Ariane Dr. The house is the perfect location close to all of the freeways and local sites. The house was very comfortable, great beds, we loved meals out on the lovey back canyon deck. My wife thought that the kitchen was great everything she needed. Gayle the host was most helpful.
