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 family house!

  • 5 of 5

Our 3-generation group had the chance to live in this great house near the beach. Bedrooms were large and could easily accomodate more people, especially our 2 babies. Unfortunately, the pool was not working for half of our stay but the owner repaired it as fast as he could and agreed to compensate for it. Only complaint is lack of a wardrobe in the main floor bedroom. Enjoy this almost historic house just as we did!

Great for a large group.

  • 4 of 5

Ryan's home was perfect for a large group! We all had enough personal space as well as "elbow room" when all together. We appreciated the location for easy access to both the Bayfront and Ocean boardwalks!

Thanks Ryan for sharing your home with us!

This place was perfect! We stayed for a week with seven adults and three children. The house was large enough to accommodate everyone and give privacy. The backyard with the pool is fantastic for kids and the hot tub on the roof is perfect for adults. You are walking distance from the beach and plenty of restaurants. It's a 20 minute drive to any other tourist destination in San Diego. The owner is very accommodating and gives you space. Would love to go back!

Beautiful property in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

From top to bottom, this house is gorgeous! Artfully designed and tastefully decorated, it is truly unparalleled. Spacious and luxurious, it held our party of ten effortlessly. The grounds, also, are expertly maintained and absolutely bucolic. Even in the off-season, this is a wonderful place to vacation.

A few evenings, we prepared meals in the well stocked, state of the art kitchen, then retired to the living room area where we relaxed on plush leather sofas, cozy by the fire, to engage in conversation or movie viewing. Other nights, we chose to dine out in one of the many restaurants in easy walking distance. Mornings, we frequently strolled down the promenade by the beach (strategically located only two blocks from the property), or rode bikes provided by the property owner. Days were spent visiting attractions such as the San Diego zoo and Torey Pines Park--all easily accessible by car.

I really can't extol the virtues of this property enough. Our party consisted of teens, young adults, and middle-aged folks, and there was something for everyone!

Ryan, the property owner, possesses the wonderful qualities of being helpful, informative and engaging yet not the least bit intrusive.

In sum, we would highly recommend this beautiful property to anyone planning to vacation in San Diego!
