Great Summer Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We go to San Diego every summer for our family vacations and love the Mission Bay area. We have been staying in Lorraine's house for many years and keep coming back every summer. You can't beat the location with the grass right in front of the house, the bay and easy access to boating, paddle boarding, jet skiing, etc. Having the boardwalk right there is fabulous for miles of bike riding, walking, or rollerblading. We love that you can walk or bike ride most places....restaurants, grocery stores and of course to the roller coaster at Belmont Park. The house is extremely spacious and well equipped with everything we need. It is a great place to unwind and relax and at night enjoy the fireworks from Sea World. Lorraine has been great to work with and is very accommodating. We will definitely be back again this summer. Thanks Lorraine!!

Great location with great views and walking distance to everything

  • 4 of 5

This property was in a great location with great views of the bay and walking distance to everything you could need: ocean, local shops, restaurants, bars etc. Only downside (which is one of those uncontrollable circumstances) is that construction was going on behind the property and you can hear it in the mornings. Other than that, a fantastic place!

Great Location for the perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just the right size for our family vacation. The living room was nice and open and the stained concrete floors were great so we didn't have to worry about tracking sand or water into the house. Since the beach was right in front of the house it was easy for us and the kids to run back and forth for lunch and bathroom breaks. There was also a grassy area in front of the house which was great for the kids to run around and play without getting all sandy. We rented paddle board from the aquatics center across the bay which was great. Belmount Park was a short walk from the house so went over there one afternoon and let the kids ride on the rides and play game, which was so much fun. Another short walk was the Catamaran Resort where our kids loved to go and see the birds and fish in the lobby. The Mission Cafe has the best breakfast and the Better Buzz Coffee Shop has the best coffee, which are both right around the corner from the house. It was so nice to leave the car park the entire trip. We couldn't have asked for a better place and location for our family vacation. We look forward to doing this again next summer.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have found a more perfect home and setting for our family vacation than Lorraine's house. Being right on the Bay side, the grandkids played right out on the grass area and the sand for hours. The house was spacious and very clean, the gas fireplace added a delightful atmosphere for the cooler fall evenings, and the views from inside the house and on the patio were gorgeous. It was a quick walk over to the ocean side to enjoy beach time or an evening sunset. We will definitely return!

Family friendly home

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our large family and the owner was extremely friendly and easy to work with. We are locals and needed a home while ours was being worked on and this home was the perfect staycation for us. It is close to everything and very convenient for the little ones to play in the grass and sand. I highly recommend this property and will definitely stay again !!!

Requested full payment months in advance bypassing VRBO, home not ready on the day of arrival.

  • 1 of 5

This was booked for 5 nights as an extended vacation following my son's wedding and was intended for a group of seven that included my pregnant daughter & a toddler.

On the day of arrival, the owner called to say the property was "ready". My husband and I were the first ones to arrive, I called the owner for access to the house. She walked me through the side alley and also how to get to the key box. After multiple tries between codes, I managed to open the rusty key box and got the key while still talking to the owner on the speaker phone as I needed both hands to operate (One wonders if she knows about keyless entry).

Once inside, we found the property in complete upheaval. It looked lived-in and filthy. The beds were slept in, garbage cans full, windows open, dirty linens and towels on the floor, cobwebs, urine still in a toilet, and etc. I called the owner, she said she was unable to reach the cleaners and sounded distressed. Being a VRBO owner myself, I was quite sympathetic.

The owner was very apologetic and offered us 3 options; to clean it ourselves (!), come back another day, or receive a full refund and apologized for our inconveniences.

Considering how difficult it would be to move our group of 7 back and forth. We chose the third option which was to leave and find another place in return for a full refund. She clearly offered the full refund a number of times heard by all on speakerphone. These conversations were all very amicable. As we were looking for another place to stay in an obvious rush, she called us back, this time in a very defensive tone and tried a number of ways to force us back to her dirty property that very night.

She subsequently refused to respond to further messages once she learned we chose her 3rd option and left the premises. She went completely dark (from 11/23-12/3/15), very unprofessional for a VRBO owner. Our attempts to resolve the issue went ignored until our return to Seattle.

To date, the owner has only agreed to return the refundable deposit. Apparently she believes she is entitled to the full rent for luring an entire family to her dirty property, ruining their vacation, and then abandoning them by cutting all communications.

One positive note, I really compliment her for her photography because in the VRBO pictures, every item in the house looked 100 times brighter, bigger, and newer with no flaws.

As a VRBO owner and a member of the VRBO community, I would NOT recommend

Owner's Response: Unfortunately .. They arrived 3 hours early, the housekeepers had not cleaned and of course the home was not ready for them. I am very sorry these people felt the need to discredit me and the property and hope others reading this will rely on other reviews . I regret the whole experience, and have taken steps to make sure this does not happen again.
