Fab place amazing
The nicest place we have ever stayed at beautiful design clean and wonderful area would defently staycagsin
Property is small and a bit dark because it's in shade most of the time.
Dinky cottage in North Park which is a really good location. Able to walk to shops, cafes and local park, and very handy for frequent bus services. Also within walking distance to Balbao Park - a must in San Diego.
Rick was prompt and friendly in all correspondence, and provided a couple of items which we requested.
Bed is extremely comfortable.
Cottage could do with a bit of a make-over to lighten and brighten it and bring it up to date.
furniture need to be upgraded.
A delightful little house.
House was clean, comfortable and cozy. Had everything we needed. All the goodies like Wi-Fi, heater, kitchen appliances and TV worked just fine. We spent a lot of time sitting outside on the deck which was probably our favorite thing since we came down from Portland which is cold, wet, and miserable in winter. The location made for an easy walk to Balboa Park and we got quick Lyft rides to Old Town, Mission Beach, and San Diego bay. Thank you Richard!
North park experience
We stayed in a cottage in North Park tucked behind the main house. While everything you need is provided, the place can benefit from a significant upgrade of nearly everything inside. Couch is not comfortable and sags, rugs are dirty and stained, they had not been vacuumed (disturbing when you know how much you pay for clean up). The location, however is very convenient.
Wonderful as always.
This is my fourth stay at this rental. Always a pleasure. The location is quiet, shaded, the bed is comfortable, and the owners very helpful.
