Nice pool, house could be cleaner

  • 3 of 5

Nice pool, and friendly owner. She gave us a personal tour of the house when we arrived. The property certainly has very dated decor (and pungent air fresheners) and is not particularly child friendly. We had to move a lot of breakable things out of reach of small hands. The kitchen cabinets and smaller bedrooms were very musty and we felt the need to wash all dishes before using them. My general impression is that there are parts of the house that don't see regular use and they could stand a deep clean every now and then. But the pool was wonderful and we used it a lot.The neighborhood is quiet and in a great location for getting around in San Diego. And the price is right for this little spot.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your glowing comments about enjoying the pool and about meeting me. Also it was good to speak with you by phone about your concerns. I appreciate your feedback and felt relieved about the few things that you were concerned about, as they have been easily remedied. You did reassure me that all of the bathrooms, kitchen counters, appliances, floors, beds,windows, patios, linens, and the inside of the house in general, were very clean. Here are the steps that I have taken to remedy your concerns: 1. unplug and remove room deodorizers. 2. We will remove decorative items from tables in the family and front room when toddlers will be staying in the house. 3. I have installed a safety latch on the cabinet below the kitchen sink. 4. The one cabinet in the kitchen that you noticed a smell, contains the plastic dishes and rattan and straw serving accessories for outdoor use,have been removed ( these could have been the culprits for a " musty smell" ) 5. Most all of the rooms have antique furniture pieces. I'm still doing research on what oil or cleaning supplies would be best used. Both my cleaning crew and I take great pride in having the home be "spic and span" for all of our travelers. Safe Travels, Camelia

Wonderful Stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this very nicely kept home in San Diego. The location is very close to UCSD. We hosted a family gathering and felt very comfortable and at home. The kitchen is well stocked with many items available for entertaining. Camelia was very accommodating and available to help with our needs. Beautify pool with a nice cozy sitting area. Only draw back is the spa heating time needs to be prearranged. Its not always easy to know when you may want to use the spa but it all worked out wonderfully for us and our family.

Great for whole family

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and spacious house - we were a multi-generational group of 8 and felt very comfortable. The pool is lovely. Camelia is a conscientious host who was very responsive to our questions or concerns. The location was fabulous. Easy access to both the I-5 and I-405, getting anywhere either North or South was a breeze. Would definitely return.

Great Get-a-way location, rain or shine

  • 5 of 5

Camelia is a lovely and thoughtful host. Her home provides a great location to explore LaJolla, San Diego and so many attractions. The home is well equipped for for cooking and set up for gathering, inside and out. Our family group of seven adults appreciated the layout and beautiful features of the house.
