Excellent location and roomy house with great patio and front porch!

  • 4 of 5

This house is very roomy and comfortable and in a great location - about a mile to Balboa Park and grocery stores. I walked to both without any difficulty. The house has a large master bedroom with king bed and sofa and a large adjoining bathroom with both tub and shower. This part of the house has central AC and kept the area comfortable and cool (it was particularly hot the days we were in San Diego). Three additional bedrooms, a bath, a dining room, a kitchen and a living room are in an older part of the home. There is a small AC window unit in the living room and that’s the only AC in that area of the home. That’s probably sufficient for the majority of the months in San Diego, but unfortunately it was very hot and humid when we were there in August, and the bedrooms were a little stuffy at night. We were gone most of the day so it wasn’t an issue in the daytime. The front porch and shady back patio were wonderful places to sit and enjoy morning coffee and the cool mornings. There’s a big kitchen with nice appliances and all the necessary cooking stuff. Also, a washer & dryer. There is only one TV set in the living room and it only has Roku but we were gone so much it wasn’t an issue. The kids just watched stuff on their iPads in the evenings. The home has WiFi with good service. It also has a piano that 3 of our family really enjoyed playing. The home was very clean with nice furnishings and beautiful stained glass windows in the living room. I would definitely recommend this home and the owner was very helpful and friendly.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The six of us had a lovely holiday with our dogs. Convenient location to trails, grocery, coffee and a short ride to the gaslamp. Plenty of space and loved the fenced in yard for the dogs.
