Great location & lovely condo

  • 4 of 5

The location of this condo is fantastic. It's easy to navigate to/from downtown, beaches, etc. Depending on traffic and where you're going, everything is 15-30 minutes away. The best part is the fabulous bakery four houses away plus the market that is fully stocked with veggies, meat, staples and alcohol. There's also a great coffee shop, pizza joint and two Mexican restaurants within very easy walking distance.

The condo is very clean and accommodations are good. There isn't any central air, but there are two units to keep things cool (it was strangely warm while we were in San Diego). The garden areas are interesting; a little overrun with plants, trees, etc. and could be cleared and cleaned up a bit.

There is no off-street parking, but pretty easy to find street parking close to the condo. The ability to parallel park is essential!

Beautiful! A perfect home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We are just finishing up our stay in San Diego, and have loved staying here. Everything was as described, and the whole process was so easy. The condo has everything you need, plus we were lucky to have one with a garage, which meant we could hire a car and see more of San Diego. The bed is so comfortable, great after a day out sightseeing. My daughter especially loved all the gardens.

The Golden Hill area is so pretty, and Pizzeria Luigi's a block away is a must! (We had it twice in four nights, it was that good!) Krisp down the road was great for something to grab and cook at home.

Susan and Ron, you have done a fabulous job, thank you for making our stay here so comfortable! We have enjoyed every minute, and I can't recommend this place highly enough.

Highly recommend this place and location

  • 5 of 5

I read reviews before booking and they were mostly accurate. I was fine with the bathroom but some said it was small. It's certainly adequate. Great price, location and just what I expected. The owners were very responsive and the courtyard and apartments were well maintained, stocked and ready for a person to come and enjoy a visit. I met others staying here and they too were commenting on how nice our environment was. There is a local bakery and grocer on the same block, and an up coming neighborhood all around.

Very clean and well managed, had everything we needed and more! A little difficult to find.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very lovely time, had everything we needed. Very clean and the codes rather than keys made it very accessible. Finding the place was a slight challenge and parking nearby, unless you get in around midnight, is nearly impossible. Is pretty much an apartment in a complex, very nice outside garden. Plenty of room and updated appliances made staying a breeze. Thanks!

San Diego wedding

  • 5 of 5

We came to San Diego for a wedding and my family wanted to stay somewhere that can fit our big family. The cottages where perfect place to stay we all had our own privacy but also had the courtyard patio to hang out. No need to drive Uber is so cheap and fast. We will definitely stay here again when the SF Giants come to town. The owners are the greatest people
