Carriage House- sleeps 8 with 4 equitable rooms on two separate levels.
Newly restored to it's 1920 grandeur, this free standing carriage house can sleep 4-8. Easy walk to Balboa Park and San Diego's finest restaurants. Located in 'Park West' between downtown and Hillcrest. As photos show, no expenses spared!
The Carriage House, comprised of two separate rentable units, combines the best of both worlds—location and amenities. Its tranquil courtyard creates a quiet oasis in the center of San Diego's hippest neighborhood, adjacent to Balboa Park. The Carriage House offers flexibility with the option of renting either one or both two bedroom retreats. In deference to our neighbors, the space is never rented for parties. *Keep in mind that it's best to plan ahead to assure that both units are available for your desired dates. 2 night minimum on weekends.

Wish our schedule allowed us to stay longer.
Our party of six really enjoyed the Carriage House. Beautifully decorated with high end quality furnishings and renovated to reflect the 1920’s character of the neighborhood. Quiet, safe neighborhood, plenty of street parking, within walking distance of Balboa Park and a variety of dining options. The owners kept in contact with us, stopped by to check in, and were very accommodating to our requests. We hope to make a return visit!
The carriage house was comfortable,spacious and beautifully furnished. The location was very central
Wonderful property we would highly recommend to anyone wishing to spend quality time in San Diego! The owners were helpful and available too if needed for any questions.
Lovely guests! Communicated well and respected our property and the surrounding neighborhood. Would highly recommend to other hosts!
Beautiful place, excellent location
We stayed at the Carriage House for a weekend. We rented both units and had a great time. The apartments have an old world charm and modern bath and kitchen. The courtyard was a relaxing place to sit.
The location is right in the middle of bankers hill. Very convenient for Balboa Park, restaurants, and coffee shops.
Don is a great host, easy to work with.
We would definitely stay there again.
Wonderful location with fantastic hosts
We've stayed in a number on VRBO's and this has been the best ever! The location was fantastic, clean and had everything we would expect. We would stay her again as the hosts provided a wonderful home for us. Close to all the fun stuff San Diego offers!!! Don't hesitate, book it!
Thanks for staying with us! You were all a delight and we'd love to have you back anytime!!!
Feels like home, and much cooler than Phoenix in July.
This place is full of wonderful design details that leave you with a feeling of home. It has comfy couches and beds, well designed and appointed kitchens, thoughtful touches in the baths, and friendly hosts. Our 4-day mid-week vacation brought my wife and I, and the families of our three adult daughters (7 adults and one toddler total) together to stay in both up and downstairs accommodations. The set up could not have been more perfect for our stay. We had two living rooms to gather and chat, or move to a different room to watch TV. The 4 bedrooms (two upstairs and two downstairs) provided privacy but were proximate enough to facilitate closeness. Subtle things like the small decorative well at the base of the stairs with a whimsical frog fountain brought about a memorable conversation with our 3-year old granddaughter. The hosts designed the interiors to reflect the construction period (1915 or thereabouts) of the site, and the mission/craftsman design ethos that was popular at that time. However, the rooms and facilities have been updated to reflect modern sensibilities. A/C is available, but we slept with windows open on the second floor and took advantage of the breeze off the harbor and the top of the hill location. Definitely will consider this place again for a repeat visit. The only real knock on the place is parking is on the adjacent quiet street, which can be tricky, but manageable during the daytime. It's generally not a problem in the late afternoon and evening. In my mind, the design extras, room arrangement, and ideal location make up for the parking question.
Thanks for staying with us...it was a pleasure and we hope you come again. We so appreciated your kind words about out little property and glad you enjoyed.
A lovely stay in a unique setting
We were a party of 13 in San Diego for a family reunion. 6 of us ( 4 adults and two teenage boys) stayed at this home, and 7 of us at a nearby home. Although I did not personally stay at this home, I spent quite a bit of time there, I have feedback from my family, and I interacted with the owner numerous times.
The house is actually two separate apartments, which worked out beautifully for us, as the two couples stayed in the downstairs suite (two bedrooms, each with ensuite) and the two boys had their own "bachelor pad" upstairs (two bedrooms and a shared bathroom). This gave the boys (and their parents!) some privacy and space which was much appreciated by all. The two units together is really an ideal set-up for a family with teenagers.
The units are set back from the street, which means it's quiet and feels quite private and peaceful. There is a lovely courtyard which well accommodated the whole party of 13 for outside dinners. The units were immaculately cleaned, beautifully decorated with 1920s styling , spacious and comfortable. The beds and bathrooms were very comfortable. The kitchen in the downstairs unit got the bulk of the use, and my family found it well-equipped and functional, even when we were cooking dinners for 13!
The location is terrific. You're walking distance from groceries, restaurants, funky shops, and Balboa Park, as well as being quite convenient to the airport. It's a really nice, comfortable and safe neighborhood.
Don is an exceptional host. He was welcoming, and always available (and didn't seem to mind all our little questions!) Our damage deposit was promptly refunded.
My family and I would definitely stay again. Thanks Don!!
Loved hosting you and hope you'll consider us again on your next visit!
