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!

Awesome house awesome host

  • 5 of 5

Unbeatable location and a really unique property. We had a great time at Ryan’s house. We grilled by the pool two of the nights we were there and walked to the beach everyday. It was a really great place to spend a vacation.

A Wonderful House and a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay at the Storybook House. We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary there with our three children, their spouses and three granchildren, ages 5, 7 and 10. The house has everything you need for a wonderful beach vacation. A pool for the kids, a hot tub on a rooftop deck for the adults and a great private outdoor area for cooking and eating. There are bicycles and beach toys and a wagon to haul to the bay or the beach, both of which are only 2 city blocks away. We did it all. The layout of the house is great. Five spacious bedrooms, four bathrooms, a completely stocked kitchen and an inside dining area that is large enough to easily handle a big group. We got plenty of use out of the pool table and even spent a little time in front of the big screen TV for some NFL action. This beautiful house is in a quiet neighborhood and deserves the name Storybook House. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home. We will definitely be back. Jim S

Great for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, near beach and bay, Ralph’s supermarket, plenty of options for eating and shopping, close to San Diego Zoo and Sea World and Petco stadium for baseball fans. We were 6 adults and 4 children, age 6-15. Plenty of room for everyone. Great location for those who like to take an early morning walk or run. Would definitely book again. Thanks Ryan

Lovely property with plenty of room for our family to spend time together

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home in a quiet residential neighborhood a short distance from the beach. Ryan was very responsive when we noticed some ants around the window and floor in the first floor bedroom. He took care of the matter immediately and there were no more problems. The home was furnished with everything we needed and plenty of gathering space and sleeping space for our family of 11. Ryan does live on the property and his residence is actually connected to the home. This can have a positive or a negative effect. I would give an FYI to any family or group with young children who will be using the pool. Ryan does require that there be no squealing or loud noises from the pool even if it is during daytime hours. We were admonished the first day of our stay at 4 pm that the children needed to be quieter. There was also another text a couple of days later at about 5:30 pm asking that the children be quieter. There are neighbors on the side of the house where the pool is located and that may be part of the issue. Other than this, I have no negative comments and these are just merely to make families with young children aware of the owner's requirements. Also, Ryan was very prompt in refunding my deposit and sent me a text thanking us for leaving the house clean.
