Did not meet expectations

  • 1 of 5

Previous reviews of this property focus on the location which is great. The property, however, is subpar compared to other places we have rented in the same area over past eight years. Each time we stayed one month. The house is so cluttered with knick-knacks that it is impossible to feel comfortable. All " updates" to this 38 year old home are poorly executed DIY projects.

Problems include:

--unsafe electrical outlet in kitchen for toaster and coffee maker

--electrical cords hang from the ceilings and run down the walls

--towels and bed linens are old

--the single handle shower faucet is sink sized and difficult to use

--screen door slider doesn't work properly and screen is torn

--outdoor furniture has broken straps, peeling paint, and broken mosaics on the tabletop

--the side yard has a pile of rusting rubbish and broken toys

So while the location is good, this doesn't make up for the house itself.The home is lacking and uncomfortable compared to similarly priced rentals in the area.

Owner's Response: This is the first review and guest that not only loved the location, but the house itself, including decorations. We are, however, going in April and will address any current issues that are valid, e.g. electrical outlet mentioned. That was not loose the last time we were there. The extension cords are actually "swag lights" and "swag" power with decorative chains to several of the fans. We will make an objective assessment of what needs attention. We will remove the stuff on the side yard, where usually no one goes there except the gardener to access the rear year from the side gate. We will inventory and address knick-knacks and towels, if necessary. We, our married children, married grandchildren, friends, and past guests all use the house, so we make every effort possible to keep the house well maintained, updated, clean, and enjoyable as best we can. This is not just a rental house or investment property. It has been in our family since it was new.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and fully stocked for us when we arrived. Extra linens, paper towels, toilet paper in the hall closet, lots of dishes, pots and pans in the kitchen. Other places we have stayed that had a kitchen had minimal supplies. It was nice to be able to cook a meal for the family and have all the dishes, etc. I needed. We also had access to the fire pit and the grill in the backyard. Lots of amenities nearby including shopping, Legoland, and the beach! Owners provided additional information about local sites, restaurants, and entertainment. Everything about this place-from first contact with the owners to final goodbye-was excellent.

Comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

This lovely family home was completely equipped and comfortable for my siblings and I to just relax and enjoy California and each other. We definitely appreciated the full kitchen and outside eating area. The house was clean and in good repair. The owners were friendly and helpful. Thanks for making our reunion a success.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

The house was in a great location - close to San Diego, Lego Land, and the beaches. The house was clean and well maintained. A grocery store and a few restaurants are close by. This property has a great view from the backyard. The owners gave us helpful information about the area. They were easy to communicate with and were very prompt with the return of the deposit. I would stay at the property again and I would recommend this house to friends. We definitely enjoyed our stay!

Excellent stay!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is breath taking and the owners were very quick at responding and checking in on everything! The house was so clean and well kept! We had two little kids with us and it was so wonderful to have the backyard to go out to and have the beach and freeway so close! I highly recommend this house you will not regret it!
