Why Amanda LaRussa chose San Diego

There's no better weather than San Diego, so why not come here to vacation!? Our home is centrally located, not more than 15 miles for all of San Diego's best attractions. It's also a plus being close to the San Diego Trolley so you can take the trolley to and from the airport or around town. There are so many places to visit and many outdoor activities to enjoy for all ages. We love going to San Diego as the beach is always fun and there is just always something happening.

What makes this house unique

This is the house to celebrate the Holidays at. We have plenty of space and 8 bedrooms to allow everyone some privacy. We have several folding tables at the home to help with that extra table space for the holiday meals!

Spacious clean comfortable house

  • 4 of 5

The house had all the essentials needed for our stay (9 adults and 2 kids). It is located in a central location for San Diego attractions. Minor improvements:living room tv setup was confusing and not so hot water in back bathtub,

Great place for a large family

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed on this property for our annual family reunion and we did have a blast! The property was large enough to accommodate the 27 members of our family. We did have 6 vehicles and we were able to park them all without needing to park on the street. We visited four different beaches during our stay and most of them were about 25-30 minutes within distance. So if you are looking for a place in San Diego and need 8 rooms to accommodate a large group, this property is a good place to stay.

Spacious home perfectly placed

  • 4 of 5

This family home was spacious and inviting. Perfect for a graduation weekend in San Deigo area. Going in I was concerned but upon arrival many concerns were dispelled. Small touch up cleaning could have been done but did not detract from the home at all. Would stay again if traveling to the area.

The home was great and served its purpose of providing a large family a home away from home.

A great place for retreat or vacation in San Diego

  • 4 of 5

We are a group of 25 college kids and we had an enjoyable retreat in Amanda's house! The house is exactly liked what the pictures show. Bedrooms, kitchen & bathrooms were clean. There were many utensils and cooking wares for us to cook our meals too! We liked the bed sheets and comforters, they made us feel like we are at home! My kids liked the game table in the living room and they used it to play board games. Some of the boys loved the little basketball court and they played 3-on-3 happily.

It was easy to find a parking spot on the street, especially we were there during weekend and we can parked on street all day long. The location is good too, it's in a residential area and we felt safe. It is only ~20 min. drive to Old Town San Diego and we went to the Sunset Cliff too!

There were only 2 things may need to improve, one is the furniture were kind of old, especially the chairs, some of them were shaky (unfortunately a young guy fell on the ground when he sat and the chair was broken, but thank God no one is injured), but Amanda just charged us a reasonable price for the compensation. The other thing was the backyard, the grasses were too tall so the boys can't really play there. But it is just a minor thing I guess.

Even I don't get a chance to meet Amanda, but she always responds quick with detailed information. I think she's a lovely and responsible owner. Thank you.

We had a Great Thanksgiving reunion

  • 4 of 5

The street view of this property leaves a bit to be desired, but once you enter the gate the property is in good shape and has a big room with 3 tables that handled all of our family for a Thanksgiving dinner that we cooked in the kitchen. There was plenty of pots and pans etc to pull it off. The 4 bathrooms and 8 bedrooms accommodated our party, When we had a plumbing issue Amanda the owner had a plumber there the next day. Thanks for a great trip
