Where to start? First of all Mick and Lynn made the check in really easy and we had all the instructions we needed. Once in, the apartment was even better than the photos.

Mick and Lynn had made sure we had breakfast, fruit and wine which was such a lovely touch, we couldn’t get over their generosity.

The rooms were gorgeous and the beds were so comfy. The tv’s in the bedrooms were also an added bonus. The kitchen was so nicely decorated and had everything we needed, including washer and dryer which came in handy.

The garden was just as good as the house, with plenty of places to sit, eat, read or sunbathe.

North Park is a lovely neighbourhood to stay in and we’re so glad we stayed there. The apartment was within walking distance of loads of great restaurants and bars etc. We also downloaded Ofo so we could get around by bike too. But Mick and Lynn will fill you in on all of this as they leave you with a great folder with loads of recommendations of things to do and see and places to eat.

In short, please can we live here?

Amazing! I hope I get to go back some day! Thanks so much Mick and Lynn

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review. And a very big thanks for leaving the house in such great condition. We try our hardest so our guests enjoy themselves in our house. North Park and South Park are the more interesting areas to stay, with the zoo close by and restaurants close by and within walking and biking distance. Hope the rest of your vacation went well: please come back anytime. Mick and Lynn

We love, love, loved this spot! The house was cozy and comfortable for our family of 4 for the week. The location was a quick ride to everything like Coronado Island, downtown San Diego, Mission Beach, La Jolla, Sea World, Petco Park and Balboa park + more.

The house is impeccably clean and you want for nothing! The hosts Mick & Lynn go above and beyond to make your stay the best. We enjoyed the outdoor space as well! The neighborhood is lovely and has awesome local spots within walking distance.

They were extremely kind, patient and thoughtful as well as quick to respond. An absolute must stay place if you are headed to San Diego!

An Amazing Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Lynn and Mick's abode was great! It was definitely spacious enough for myself and 3 kids. They were always VERY helpful and the kitchen was fully stocked, not only with pots and pans and the usual kitchenware, but with sandwich bags and the like. They even stocked the refrigerator with milk and chocolates and snacks and cereal as well. Would definitely recommend and would very want to stay there again. Thank you Lynn and Mick!

just like home

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after midnight, they had left the lights on and had snacks on the counter for us. We were starving. The house is very clean and comfortable. The owners are very responsive to any needs or questions about the home. We felt very safe in the house for being away from home.

Would stay again!!!

Lovely rental in convenient neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This rental is lovely, comfortable and convenient. We are a family of 4 and had plenty of room inside and out to enjoy our visit in San Diego. The beds and bedding were very cozy. The decor in every room was inspiring to experience. Our hosts were gracious and helpful in every way. Thank you to them for making us feel so welcome.

Very clean, very nice. Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we waked in, every detail was perfect. The owners were so kind and left little gifts for my two kids to make them feel welcome. They also left my wife and I a very nice basket of goodies from a local market which was perfect! The home itself was so nice and clean and in a nice neighborhood. It was truly an experience that made me feel like I was at home (amenities wise) while not being at home. The location was exactly what we wanted for our vacation too (big zoo trip). The moment I get a chance to come back to San Diego, I will hope this house is available again.
