Stunning views and perfect home for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

As stunning as the photos, near everything we wanted to do. Kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub and we enjoyed the views. Beds were very comfortable

Excellent home, but we had some issues with the hot tub and pool.

  • 5 of 5

This home is amazing and it's location along the cliffs is wonderful as joggers go by, surfers surf, dog walkers walk, etc. The location and home are amazing. You will love it. =)

There is plenty of space and all beds are queen size or larger, the linens are good, it is a nice home. We truly appreciated having our family get-together there and feel grateful to the home owner for that. It was expensive at 10.5k for the week, but well worth it.

We did run into an issue with the hot tub and pool. After 3 days the hot tub got a nasty film over the top surface area of the water. I didn't think anything of it as children were at play in and out with sunscreen on. We called the pool man to come and drain it and clean it. He was super wonderful and did so even on a Sunday evening. Really nice! Everything back to normal, right?

Well the next day many of us started showing signs of hot tub folliculitis. I had never heard of it, but 8 out of 10 got it and we all got prescribed antibiotics. The two not affected by it didn't go into the hot tub. Evidently a certain bacteria can grow when there is not enough chlorine in the water. So this might have been a culprit in the scum that evolved and not just sun screen. I imagine this is a one off situation and not typical at all. The home owner assured me that no one else had ever had that experience. So it was just the luck of the draw that week. We still remained grateful and respectful and placed no blame. Sometimes this stuff happens. No one lost an arm or leg so all was fine.

At some point I wanted to swim laps in the pool and removed the pool sweep. It is a small pool and hard to do laps with the sweep in. Evidently doing so brings air into the pump and causes the pump to burn out. The total cost to replace this was $1400. I did end up paying for the replacement of the pump with the 1k deposit. The home owner actually paid for the remaining $400. I did offer to cover that too, but he insisted on taking care of it. I felt so bad as I know this also cost him time, worry, and his next guests had a time delay in utilizing the pool. Yuck!

We tried to be gracious and considerate and over looked the hot tub issue and then took full responsibility for the pool pump and tried to right a wrong. However, I did get a negative review on VRBO. Truly I hope this is unusual too.

We hope you love your stay and all goes well. Truly a beautiful place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We provide both verbal and written instructions for the property. Starting with the pool, instructions were given not to remove the porpoise pool cleaner sweep as air will enter the lines without proper priming. Well, they removed the equipment and the pump being only 1.5 years old ceased up due to insufficient water flow. Problem 2, the hot tub is serviced professionally weekly with the proper balance of chemicals. With 8 adults and children using the tub bacteria entered the spa through human contamination. We have rented this property for 3 years with no prior issues. My pool professional has never experienced the problem this group encountered. The good news all is recovered.

A beautiful large home, set in San Diego's ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

This home, and it's owners, met all of our expectations and more. It is comfortably furnished with quality goods and the kitchen is large with great pots and pans and accessories, even with most of the spices our kitchen at home has. 14 of us stayed in Mexico but the kitchen only had 8 servings of everything, not so here with plenty of plates, silver etc for all day. The bathrooms are fully stocked as well, and the owners had anticipated all of our needs. The pool and spa were well equipped, with plenty of beach towels, pool toys, chairs, lounges and tables with umbrellas. We had two small children and an infant and the owners thought of everything. Two pac&plays, high chair, stroller, pool toys and life vests. Everything was relatively new, in good repair, and everything worked. The house itself is beautiful with large airy rooms, high ceilings, many windows and balconies to view the adjacent cove and the sunsets over the water. It has off the street parking for five cars including a garage inside a locked enclosure. There is an elevator for those in need. The location is excellent, on a cliff with a lovely view, close to everything in San Diego. Also, a special thanks for a bottle of champagne to celebrate the birthdays we were having.

beautiful house, nice location

  • 4 of 5

Great location to take a large group. We were there with children and grandchildren. The house is plenty spacious and fully equipped with everything you need including beach accessories, bikes etc. We really enjoying biking to Ocean Beach in the mornings. The house is fairly easy access to most all of the San Diego hot spots. The only downside is that the heater in the pool was broken when we were there and with recent rains and overcast it was a little cooler than we had hoped (around 78-80 degrees) which prevented several from swimming at all. Definitely recommend going to the Stone Brewery at Liberty station which is less than 10 minutes away.

Beautiful house and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation with our entire family in this home. The owner greeted us and oriented us to the home. Everything was as described on VRBO. The pool and spa were wonderful. The pool is actually larger than appears on the website photos. We were there with our 4 children, assorted spouses and grandchildren and the house was large enough to accommodate all and provide privacy for all. I would strongly recommend this home to anyone planning a vacation in the San Diego area. Sunsets were spectacular!

Incredible location, perfect home for a group or large family

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many lovely vacation homes through VRBO over the years, but without a doubt this was our favorite. The house is so comfortable that we found it difficult to leave for our planned activities each day. The pool was the perfect temperature and we used every (already inflated) floaty the owners provided. There were eight staying in the house and there was more than enough privacy for all of us. Each night we gathered in the comfortable outdoor furniture in the side yard, with a glass of wine, to view the beautiful sunsets. We walked to a great little organic coffee shop each morning, only a 10 minute walk from the house. Everyone enjoyed the "front yard" proximity to the beach and the running trails that were easily accessible. I hope we are able to stay here again, a great vacation getaway! Thank you Dennis!
