Great Stay in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the premises for 5 days at the end of a 21 day trip to San Diego. In all their we're three couples.

The accommodation is as described and the communication received from Blanca, who manages the property was excellent.

The property is a short walk from Pacific Beach (2 blocks less than 5 minutes). Also in walking distance of many restaurants and bars.

La Jolla is a 15 minute bike ride to the cove and downtown San Diego is 15 minutes drive.

To sum up - great location, good accomodation and San Diego is a brilliant place.

A wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

It was a very good experience for our first vacation in someone else’s home. There were no negatives to renting this property. There were a few minor and I mean minor details that could have been addressed but the place was clean and comfortable. All the amenities we could have possibly thought of and then some. It felt like we were at home. We had a great time. Definitely would rent it again.

Great location, plenty of room, great for large family

  • 5 of 5

Spent a long weekend for my wife's birthday with her sisters and some friends. We loved being able to walk to restaurants, the beach, shopping, and exercise. The duplex is exactly as advertised and the owner made sure that we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. There was plenty of parking on the street and the neighborhood was very nice. I would definitely go back there again.

Great House - Walking Distance to the Beach

  • 4 of 5

This house was excellent. It literally had everything you needed for your beach vacation. It had everything we needed to take to the beach including wagons to haul it all down there. The house was well stocked with anything and everything we really needed while we were there. Highlights were the top deck and fire pit outside. Nice outdoor space to hang out in. In the description it even says "crib" in master closet... it's really 3-4 pack in plays which was awesome, I wouldn't have brought mine had I known. They even had a baby gate which helped keep our little one on one side of the house. Cons - not decision making but here they are: wifi was weak, couldn't get connection from the upper deck or even parts of the living room/outside. Couldn't get our firestick to work because the connection was so bad. Also the kitchen cabinets were sticky. I'm sure they'd been washed - but they needed a good baking soda scrub, or to be sanded and resealed. Literally sticky from years of grime. Also the slider to go out back squeaked loudly. To the fact that we WD40'ed it because it was annoying. That helped by the way. Last con is I had to reach out for my deposit 10 days later since I hadn't heard from them and it was refunded on my credit card. Which is how I paid.... but that's because I wasn't going to pay $2k with my debit card. Wish I would have known that, I could have asked for a check or paypal or popmoney, something instead of a $400 credit on my credit card. All that said it was a fantastic house with more than enough amenities. I would definitely rent again. Rooms were well stocked, kitchen had everything we needed, house was clean (other than the sticky cabinets), Blanca the house manager was fantastic, super nice, any correspondence I had prior to the stay was responded to in a timely manner. Overall a wonderful experience and we had an excellent time. If we find ourselves in PB again - I wouldn't hesitate to book this place again.

We enjoyed our stay at this perfectly situated home. It's proximity to the beach with easy access to the Pacific Beach nightlife makes this house a gem. The manager is very responsive and extremely friendly. I will absolutely book this location again while in the San Diego area.
