San Diego Gem!
We absolutely loved your place. Couldn’t get enough of the view! Coffee in the morning, dinners with a awesome view sunsets, jacuzzi at evening. Bike ride to ocean beach, walking on cliff side to get to beach. Posted pictures and friends interested in it! We will definitely be back. Enjoyed company with other renters and owner next door. Just can’t say enough about the place! Only problem was last day with the kitchen sink backing up which we knew about. So close to down town SD, Petco (baseball) went to Coronado island, Gaslamp and next time shelter island we didn’t get to see. Thank you for sharing your beautiful place!
Ocean Beach a Getaway
Beautiful area with breath taking views! Plan on coming again.
Love this Property
We have stayed here previously - wonderful property, location and management. Definitely will return!
Excellent rental. Parking is very tight but you probably know that.
Sunset Cliffs Paradise!
My boyfriend and I stayed here over a weekend and didn't want to come back home. The patio is incredible with the most amazing views of the ocean and the sound of the waves crashing right below you in indescribable. The location was central to everywhere we wanted to go (when we could be convinced to leave the patio, that is). We will definitely stay here again!
Upon arrival, these are not cottages, these are duplexes turned into 1 bedroom apartments. The walls are thin, and you can here when your neighbor is up and moving around, going to the bathroom. The back door had to be fixed (didn't lock). The cabinet in the bedroom, was falling apart, had to position the doors just right to close them. The bedroom wouldn't be called a bedroom because there are no closets. The bedroom smelled like a wet dog. The bed was uncomfortable. The bathroom is very small, the window has no lock on it. The siding glass door going out to the patio is very hard to open. The Jacuzzi broke the first night, which was one of the main reasons we rented this place, and didn't get fixed the whole time we were there. Parking is a joke. it does have a parking spot for each apartment, but they are so close together you can't open your doors to get in and out of your car, and we did not have full size vehicles. The old man next door, and upstairs walks around his apartment in his underwear with his curtains, and windows open. So that is nice for your kids and wife to see. I understand that is beyond VRBs control, just thought I would mention it. The lighting at night is nonexistent, there is one light, out the sliding glass door that lights up a small area. the solar lights that are here and there don't work anymore. I would give this place a 1 star, but this place does have a nice view, and a nice gathering area outside to visit with friends and family. The kitchen was decent side, was well stocked with dishes and eating utensils. The apartment was clean when we got there. the sofa bed in our apartment was newer.
Since we pretty much have all 5 star reviews let's just add some missing info to eliminate anything misleading. Yes, we have two quaint single level duplexes on our water’s edge property which are priced well under market for direct ocean front (hence the full occupancy and non-stop returning guests). The closest description you are required to pick on this website for this listing is "cottage" so we go with that as these have always been whole homes and they really present as such. Of course, there is a photo of the duplex in the listing so they are certainly not represented as anything differently. Housekeeping also informed us before this guest arrived that the back door was sticky as the salt air and rain can swell things and we sent someone by the very next morning to fix it as well as the beautiful 100 year old antique armoire's doors (we always fix any issues promptly). This larger fellow stated he was 330 lbs so it is understandable he may have had an issue or two with his expectations relating to his size. We all drive full size trucks ourselves and have no issues with our own private coveted beach parking for our guests (just back in for even easier use of the spaces) and there actually is street parking also. Also our housekeeping is impeccable and you'll always find our units immaculate as described in many many reviews. As you can imagine we are always upgrading and replacing everything the salt air corrodes (we are right. on. the. water.) but again... we are happy to fix any new issues immediately. As a first… apparently our hot tub's pump had failed and we inspected the spa ourselves within an hour of it being reported and had the repair service over the very next morning (Friday). The service then ordered the pump and replaced it promptly Monday morning - if it wasn't the weekend it would have been down just one day. As far as the solar lights, they get replaced constantly (confirmed only two were not functioning then) and the hot tub is heavenly at night without a bunch of light glaring at you. It also goes without saying that we communicated each and every detail of our progress to this guest who intimated that none of it was a big deal so imagine our surprise at his personal issues with such an amazing little beach retreat (guests come back and do their weddings here after visiting). Again we are happy to do all we can to make our guest's stays memorable so know we are excited to have you come visit also, cheers. -David, Lorie & Mike
