Perfect vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family spent a week together in San Diego and this house was perfect for an amazing vacation. The location is awesome. Some people in our party had a car, but we did not and we didn't need one at all. The beach and bay are only blocks away. There is a Ralph's grocery store about two blocks away and many restaurants, bars and shops all within an easy walk. Also a bus stop a few blocks away made for an easy trip to La Jolla, other areas were easily accessible by bus too.The house has two parking spaces around back, street parking looked hard to come by.

The house was very clean and everything was in working order, plenty of pots and pans in kitchen and plenty of towels etc. Ryan was very accommodating when we showed up early with our little kids after a cross country plane ride and welcomed us in for a quick tour and to leave our bags as they finished up readying the house.

My kids loved the "triangle room" with sloped ceilings, My In laws enjoyed the large airy Master suite with large bathroom and we enjoyed having the balcony room with sunlight coming in and access to roof top hot tub and (sea world) fireworks viewing. One bedroom is downstairs and has an attached full bath, my sister in law found that one helpful for tending to her baby. The upstairs 3 bedrooms share one bathroom (4th upstairs room is master with private bath) only thing that would have made the house more comfortable for our party with small kids would have been at least one bathroom with a bath tub, the three full bathrooms each have a shower.

The back yard area is beautiful and relaxing, lots of seating areas, gas BBQ and shallow pool made it tempting to stay at the house all day. The rooms are large and even with a larger party we never felt cramped or short on space. This house is great, Ryan is an accommodating host and I hope to be able to go back to stay again someday, next time two weeks!

Great location and space for gatherings!

  • 5 of 5

We just had a great multi-generational family reunion at this property. Not only is the house charming with surprising nooks, balconies and decks, but the layout works very well for a large group with diverse interests. And the surprise was how much time we spent in the lovely enclosed patio, which was great for containing a toddler. It's a quick walk to both the bay and ocean beaches, as well as lots of restaurants, surf shops, bike rentals,.... so we only needed to use our rental cars to get to Sea World, the Midway,.... Logistics made easy!

I will just add that although the fifth bedroom works well, but is not as nicely finished as the first four bedrooms-it is more of a kid's room. But this did not affect our ability to enjoy the property and we will stay there again.

Ryan, our host, was also very nice and quick to respond to any questions.

Spectacular home and location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 enjoyed a wonderful week's stay in Ryan's great property . The teenagers remarked that is had the feel of a "Harry Potter" house! The location could not be more perfect as just a very easy 1-2 block walk to Pacific Beach or Mission Bay. We had fun cooking in the spacious kitchen, but we especially enjoyed hanging out on the back patio chatting or being in the pool together. Also great that there was ample parking space by the back gate for our SUV and rental van. Easy two block walk to Ralph's grocery store which had everything we needed. Ryan was available when we needed him and so easy going. Hopefully you will get to meet Birdie, his friendly cockatoo. We would definitely stay there again! Thanks, Ryan!

Excellent family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in this beautiful Tudor home. The location is perfect for the beach, the bay, shopping, and restaurants. We felt like locals, not tourists. It was so nice to host a family dinner with a great kitchen and plenty of space to relax. We will be back again next year!
