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.

Wonderful rental! Comfortable, well equipment and very nice owners on site. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Came out with my folks to visit a relative. Wonderful place to rent. My folks said bed was comfortable and I used pull out couch which was as well. Bedroom had too large closets for storage. Two TV's which we turned one on once and told my Dad to turn off as we were on vacation. Never had the TV's on again. Nice to have thou if the weather would not have been as beautiful as it was. It was so great to have breakfast and sometimes dinner there as kitchen was well equipped. When we arrived they had a bottle of wine on the counter and three cold waters in the refrigerator. Bathroom had large shower, sink and spacious vanity storage space. The flower beds that Jamie and Karl have are breathtaking! Very nice neighborhood and close to Old Town. We sat outside on patio for our morning coffee. Beautiful park behind house with walking trails. Visited with both Jamie and Karl and very cordial and wonderful people. It worked out well as my handicap cousin could use the ramp and get in the door with his wheelchair to visit us. He loved it too. Thank you Karl & Jamie for providing our stay as very acceptable. Would love to come back! Thank you!!!

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!
