Perfect place to stay for easy access to downtown, Old Town, Balboa Park, and La Jolla

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely little place to stay. Located on a hill above Old Town, meant that we could easily walk there or to the trolley/bus station - which we did virtually ever day. The cottage had everything we needed and when we were trying to figure out how to get to La Jolla and where to eat, Karl was right there with suggestions. He even had a recommendation for pizza for one of the nights we stayed in. Laundry facilities are within a mile or so and we found both Trader Joe's and Target to be very close as well. We would certainly stay here again.

Great location and very comfortable accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Very conveniently located blocks away from Old Town San Diego. A spacious living room, well equipped kitchen, and comfortable bedroom. Good high speed internet, two tv's with satellite, and nearby grocery store as well as Balboa Park. A most enjoyable stay.

My daughter loved it

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed only for 2 nights with my two young children. It is a downstairs converted one bedroom apartment. Upgraded bathroom and kitchen. The door was unlocked when we arrived and the apartment was very clean. Easy access to the apartment with a parking spot on the driveway; which is shared with the owners. Located very close to old town and easy access to the freeways. Karl was very responsive. When visiting San Diego we would more than likely try to stay here again.

Convenient and Cosy

  • 5 of 5

We chose this attached guest house for just one couple and for enough space to be able to cook/entertain a few family members for an afternoon and evening get together. Both my husband and I enjoy walking so we walked through Old Town for dinner, out to breakfast at Perrys and up the hilly path to Presideo where there was a beautiful vista from mountain to sea. Parking was spacious. The kitchen had what we needed. Host was available and responsive. Although we really didn't need anything. Walking down the first block to Old Town is challenging with traffic - not recommend after dark.

Delightful

  • 5 of 5

We concur with all reviewers about this superb place. Clean, comfortable, well located. Karl is great. We liked that we could open the windows for fresh air. There is a sound of freeway and airplane traffic noise but it’s quiet enough to adjust to. In the mornings on the outdoor patio we enjoyed a bird serenade by many small birds in the treetops. Humming birds were visible in the flower blossoms. From the distance, a churchbell could be heard. Lovely! The walk to town is short but begins on a steep, curved road with no sidewalks. Walking at night, you must take care when a car passes by but it’s otherwise pleasant. Highly recommend this restful place!!

Convenient and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This property is located on a hillside which offers a lovely view of the surrounding area. While it is within an easy walking distance of Old Town, walkers should be prepared to walk up/down a steep hill. Alternatively, there is ample guest parking space.
