Spring vacation with family

  • 4 of 5

House is in a great location and nice neighborhood. Hot tube and pool were great. Several things were broke or didn't work. Bedroom fireplace and one bedroom deck door wasn't secure, main floor deck doors were broke - one would not open and the other wouldn't close, music did not work in pool area. The pool equipment is very noisy making sleeping in the first floor difficult. Would recommend with some needed upgrades.

Amazing week in San Diego!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this wonderful vacation home back in April. My delay in writing the review is due to hectic work travel that followed that vacation, and I wanted to make sure to give this review the time it deserved. I had researched homes to rent for months. There were many things that attracted me to this one, and I was so glad we picked it! It was centrally located to EVERYTHING in SD. It was paradise. We were within an extremely short drive to downtown SD, Coronado beach, Sea World, the airport, etc. Very convenient if you want to be close to everything. The house was exceptionally clean and very nicely decorated. Modern looking, but very comfortable and relaxing. We had a family of 5, and had more than enough room for all of us in this house, with room to spare. The kitchen and linen/towel closets were well stocked, and we wanted for nothing, which was fantastic. Beds were very comfortable, and the bedroom closets all had plenty of space for us to unpack our things so we did not have to live out of a suitcase for a week. Nice patio eating area with a grill that we used. The kids loved the backyard pool, and my husband and I loved sitting on the upper level front deck at night for happy hour, watching the sun go down. We went to a Padres game, Mission Bay, Coronado, Legoland, SeaWorld....there was something for everyone! There was a grocery store we frequented almost every day up the hill as recommended by the owners, and it had everything we needed, including a liquor store. The neighborhood was quiet and in an area with rolling hills. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone who is looking for a SD getaway to a place that is so central to everything you want to do in SD, with all the wonderful comforts and amenities of an amazing house. We would definitely stay here again! The owners were very quick to respond to questions, and made it such a seamless process to check in and stay! Thank you!!!

Definitely hope to return

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our three month stay in this comfortable and conveniently located Bay Park home, which is central to downtown, Pacific Beach, Pt Loma and La Jolla. There is a beautiful view from the third level master suite and we loved watching the sunset over the Bay. We noticed it is a very quiet neighborhood. The layout is functioning and spacious and offers privacy for all guests as well as good space for gathering, dining or relaxing in a group setting. The heating/cooling, very private swim pool, TVs, DW, clothes washer were all working during our visit. We cooked several times and the stove, oven and grill are good quality. There are also many nice restaurants nearby or just a short drive away. Management responds to requests promptly if you need repairs or anything. The home was clean to our standards when we left the property.

Wonderful and memorable stay for the family

  • 5 of 5

Great location for a family rental. A short drive to the nearest beaches were we booked surfing lessons over two days - it was the highlight of our 3 weeks in southern California. The neighborhood was quiet and felt very safe. House was absolutely lovely - modern architecture and minimalist interiors with all possible conveniences, but also very child friendly and comfortable. Washing machine and drier were great - in the garage so no noise when they were working. The kitchen had a TV and couch so was perfect for hanging out in and overlooking the kids in the pool and hot tub. House was perfectly ready and Bruce met us on time and talked us through everything which made it all so easy.

Parking in the drive couldn't be easier. The location at the top of the hill gave magnificent views towards the sea and San Diego and the fireworks every night at Sea World were an added bonus for the family - great to sit on the breezy balcony and enjoy that!

Bruce gave us an excellent recommendation for "Luce" - one of the local restaurants - and it lived up to expectations - it was buzzy and the food was delicious.

All in all it was the best choice we could have made for our 5 days in San Diego and if we ever get back here we would love to stay in the same house again.

Great property in a great lovation

  • 4 of 5

The property is great, the location is great, and it was easy working with the owner and the local contact person, Bruce. I really wanted to give the home 5 stars, and if not for a couple of things, I would have. First, the positives.... The pool and hot tub were great, the location of the home is great, the view of the fireworks from the front balcony every night at Seaworld was great, the owner and local rep were great. The two downstairs beds were not great, they were actually very uncomfortable, time for new mattresses. The only other thing that could be improved is the main level TV situation. The TV is beside the kitchen, and there is only a couch that fits two people in that room, unless you want to sit at the bar. I would move that TV into the main living room and hang it above the fireplace so that everyone can sit comfortably. Oh, it also makes an irritating mechanical, coffee grinding sound every 45 seconds. I'm not sure why it made that noise, and after 5-6 days we got used to it, but it was distracting. Overall I would stay there again without hesitation if the mattresses downstairs were replaced.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Robert. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Happy to update that we have a brand new 55" TV hanging now above the fireplace in the living room, as well as a brand new TV ready to install in the kitchen. We regret that the downstairs mattresses were not to your liking.We have heeded your input and have purchased a new bed for the downstairs bedroom and fresh new linens and pillows all around! Again, thank you for your feedback. Let us know when you plan to visit San Diego again and we can offer you a discount for being a return customer. PS Mattress has now been replaced!

San Diego Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just recently returned to the Bay Area from our 8-night vacation in this beautiful home. We shared the first four days with friends that flew in from Missouri, South Carolina and Georgia. The last four days was set aside for family time with our daughter. EVERYONE truly enjoyed the home and it surpassed all our expectations. The home was clean and very well maintained. There are much more amenities in the home than what is listed. We had a full agenda planned for our vacation and the location of the home was perfect to get to everything. We enjoyed a day at the Del Mar County Fair, shopping at Fashion Valley Mall and downtown’s Horton Plaza and a Sunday morning jazz brunch at Humphrey’s Half Moon Inn. The homes close proximity to the airport proved to be a lifesaver as we had to make three roundtrips there during our stay. It was great to be able to watch SeaWorld’s nightly fireworks show from the bay view terrace as well as just simply sitting and enjoying a glass of wine by the fireplace. We also loved relaxing in the oversized Jacuzzi in the evenings.

We would definitely recommend this home to anyone that is looking for a memorable vacation experience. You don’t even need to leave the home to have a great vacation. Our family has gone through some tragedies the last 18 months and this was the first time that we have been able to get away together. We would like to thank Bruce and Susan for everything that they did in making this vacation so enjoyable. From prior to our arrival to the time we departed they made themselves available and were very accommodating. We hope to be able to come back and enjoy this beautiful home again.
