About A. Fakhimi

Hello, my name is Alex Fakhimi and I am a dentist living in San Diego with my wife and two children for the last 19 years. I moved here because of the beautiful city and the amazing weather as I'm sure why it is such a hot spot for vacationers. I use VRBO regularly for my own vacations and I know what it takes to offer a high quality house with the best amenities as well as convenience to local attractions, restaurants, etc. I pride myself and my homes to being some of the best you will find on VRBO. All of our guests have been quite pleased for going above and beyond their expectations regarding their stay in our home. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have; and enjoy your stay. Alex,

A. Fakhimi purchased this estate in 2009

Why A. Fakhimi chose San Diego

I chose to buy a vacation rental in San Diego because it's where I live, and for families from all over the world to be able to come with their families and friends and enjoy this amazing city, just as my family and I enjoy everyday. In fact I live only a couple of miles away from all of the vacation homes I have in San Diego. I believe it is one of the most beautiful places in the world that you can visit anytime of the year, not to mention the world renowned San Diego Zoo, Sea World, LegoLand, Convention Center, and many more attractions. That's why it is called the "Finest City in Ameria" and 'Sunny San Diego'

What makes this estate unique

Some of the Unique benefits you will enjoy staying at my property are: the panoramic views from the house, the luxury of the house with beautiful decorations, furniture, elegance, privacy, pool, jacuzzi, BBQ, the stunning view from the huge roof top deck, The convenience to all San Diego attractions within a few minutes. Uber is best way to get around San Diego. You will feel like you are staying in your own private resort.

You can contact the owner to discuss any attration/restaurants, hot spots, and activities available in San Diego. We can provide a chef as well as daily maid service if requested.

We really enjoyed the property. It's proximity to everything made it very easy for us to get around and the roof top deck provides an awesome view.

Great place for a large group

  • 4 of 5

Great location between downtown and the beach. Convenient to local restaurants and shops. All the amenities were good, not a 5-star as the place can use a bit of upkeep (cleaner/newer pool furniture, updated kitchen utensils, refreshed furniture). Would book here again.

Great location and amazing accommodations

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for a weekend vacation in San Diego. It is a great location; near PB, Downtown, and the airport. The house is kept very well and the pool and common areas are a plus. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a nice vacation in San Diego!

Great house. But some inconveniences.

  • 3 of 5

The house is great with a great pool, plenty of room and very conveniently located to many great resturants.

Just something of which to be aware. The property sets above I-5, the train tracks and overlooks the airport. There is noise all the time but it is most noticeable at night if you are sleeping in one of the master suites. Bring a sound machine app on your phone or ear plugs.

We had two issues that were never properly resolved after more than one call to the owner. 1. The refrigerator leaked and the food and the shelves would be wet. They told us to turn the ice maker in the frig off. That fixed the leak but then we had no ice!

2. One of the master suites had no AC. They told us to check the fuses and that the unit was new. The fuses were fine and after two calls, no one came to check. The only way to cool the room was to open the door onto the deck which also allowed more noise to come in. (See above).

We felt for the price we paid, someone should have been more concerned about the refrigerator and the AC and made sure everything was in proper working order.

Perfect base for San Diego

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in Ali's property. Read the description closely and research the location - we chose this home because of the size - FIVE bedrooms, and the proximity to all the major tourist attractions. The home has plenty of space, and we chose to have the pool heated for extra charge which was totally worth it in April. The kids had a blast! The Jacuzzi is also heated, which is great for the adults. Having a kitchen and washing machine/dry was super handy and necessary for a large family. We had minor maintenance issues, which Ali promptly addressed. As you will see from the location, you are close to the highway and airport. From some of the bedrooms (not all) you can hear the highway, but I didn't hear it with ear plugs. There aren't that many restaurants or stores nearby - but it's super easy to drive or take uber to Gaslamp area or nearby restaurants. It's a 10-15 minute drive to Sea World, Balboa Park, The Zoo, Gaslamp area, and the airport which makes it a super convenient location.

Some FYI (since I wanted to know) the kitchen has a regular coffee maker (bring your own filters and ground coffee), gas stove, microwave, toaster oven and refrigerator/freezer combo. The are dishes, cups, silverware, pots and pans, and dish washing liquid. I'd recommend bringing ziplock bags, tupperware, plastic wrap, and foil if you plan to cook and store leftovers. Bring a cooler bag and ice packs if you want to pack a lunch for the day. There are trash bags and you'll have to take down the trash and recycling. For the bathrooms, there is hand soap and small bar soaps and shampoos. Bring your own lotion, conditioner, sunscreen and personal toiletries. There are enough hand and body towels. Also plenty of laundry detergent if you wish to do laundry. For the pool, we also brought our own toys for the kids. Overall would recommend for families and large groups. Enjoy your trip!
