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.

Quiet comfortable guest house near Old Town

  • 5 of 5

The guest house seemed newly remodeled and very clean. The floors are really sloped which was kind of funny but in no way affected our stay. The bed was comfortable and it was quiet. The location is literally walking distance to Old Town and easy driving distance to almost anywhere you might want to go in San Diego.

Awesome place near Old Town

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome. The view is great to start with. The apartment is very comfortable, clean, and has all the amenities we needed and more. The location is a very short walk to beautiful Old Town San Diego which is a plus. I would recommend this to anyone and would definitely stay here again when visiting SD in the future!

Perfect place for a quiet getaway.

  • 5 of 5

After a stressful year running a busy non-profit organization, and dealing with an ill relative, I was thoroughly ready for a getaway. This lovely little hideaway (tucked away between San Diego's Old Town and upscale Mission Hills) was even better than expected. With a fabulous view (from La Jolla to Cabrillo National Monument) and Whole Foods (as well as Sprouts) nearby, I could not have asked for more. My hosts were wonderful. When it was time to leave, I was well rested, refreshed and reinvigorated. I'd love to go back!

Sunny sanctuary above Old Town

  • 5 of 5

Karl is the nicest, most helpful host we have encountered since our membership in HomeAway. We love the location of his place with a great view of San Diego. The place is always very clean and well cared for. We have stayed here twice. Karl is always willing to fix anything that is not working perfectly. The kitchen is well appointed with utensils, dishes, and all of the necessities to make a meal. The suite is best for two people, although there is a pull out sofa in the living room. The bathroom is well lit with a beautiful stone shower. Lots of light comes into the suite since it faces west and there are plenty of windows, but there are blinds if you need to make it dark and private. All of the suite is appointed with sufficient lighting to make each area bright. There are two tv's, one in the living room and one in the bedroom.

The grounds around the suite are cared for lovingly by Karl's wife, with beautiful flowers and plants. There is a private sitting area for the suite that looks out on the gorgeous sunny view of Old Town and the whole city. The little private patio with four chairs and a table with some artificial grass has sun/light from about 11 am till sunset. It's very nice to watch the sunset over the city. On a clear day you can see the ocean in several places. The walk to Old Town is about two minutes if you take the steep route and a few more minutes if you walk the long way.

We have stayed at Karl's place two years in a row and would love to go back again. Karl is quick to answer texts regarding anything that you need help with. Thanks for making our stays memorable!

Nice property in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

This was a quiet property in a very great location. It was convenient to everything we wanted to see. The kitchen was loaded so it was easy to make a breakfast or lunch.
