Everything and More!

  • 5 of 5

Since we had an 18-month-old who required naps, location was of primary importance and this home was perfect (very safe home for the little one as well). Less than 15 minutes from practically everywhere and a lovely park with playground amenities just a block away. Cadena answered all our questions promptly both before and after booking the property. The house is well maintained and was exceptionally clean. It was equipped with everything we needed, including top-of-the-line kitchen appliances, ample dishware and utensils. The photos are spot on, with the outside patios just perfect for enjoying the beautiful San Diego weather. Many shops and restaurants easily within walking distance. We highly recommend this property and look forward to renting it again on our next trip to San Diego.

Beautiful three bedroom in University Heights

  • 5 of 5

An beautiful house in a fantastic location. Could not recommend this place high enough. There was a minor problem with the cable and the owner/mgr had someone out there that day. The neighborhood was super safe and super cool and it was literally only a block from the main street. If there was one minor thing (and it really is minor; maybe more of something to just keep in mind), it would be that if you are an early riser, stay in one of the downstairs rooms. The only access through the house from the upstairs is through one of the bedrooms. Otherwise, you have to go around through the garage or through the backyard/terrace area to get to the main living room. Which, considering the perfection of the weather in SD year around, isn’t really a big deal. Again, just something to keep in mind; not a problem, but more of a disclosure. We would definitely stay at this place again, no question.

Quaint older home in great location!

  • 4 of 5

A older nicely decorated craftsman home. Upon arrival, a bathroom mirror was partially falling off the wall. After reporting the issue, the mirror was repaired. Reported that one of the cable TV's did not work and it was not acknowledged or repaired. Surprised that there was no shampoo or bath soap/gel in any of the 3 bathrooms.

Repeat Guests

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this adorable house in University Heights. We love the location and the accommodations. The neighborhood was excellent for food options after long days spent downtown. We are two couples one with a 9 yr old and a single friend. The downstairs master and upstairs suite were perfect for privacy. Three full bathrooms made it super easy for everyone to get ready each day without delays. The beds are comfy, the kitchen was stocked with all supplies needed to cook daily breakfast and dinner. The outdoor space was just right to enjoy a group dinner and listen to the festival music from the park down the street. The wi-fi was a little spotty but other than that everything was A+. Thank you for another great San Diego stay.
