Overview

About the property

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.

Feels like home, and much cooler than Phoenix in July.

  • 5 of 5

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.

A lovely stay in a unique setting

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Great space for families!

  • 5 of 5

Host Don was readily available to assist with any questions and made an appearance to help with a lock issue. Location of property was very centralized and convenient - parking was also a breeze.

Would stay again if opportunity presented itself.

Thanks Don!

Great location, quiet, well-equipped.

  • 4 of 5

Location is ideal - we walked to Balboa park easily. Well stocked kitchen; we had everything we needed for our breakfasts and dinners. Small problem with the Blue-Ray player but otherwise the owner/managers are quick to resolve any trouble that emerges. Would definitely stay here again. Clean, quiet, beautiful setting and furnishings.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The carriage house was a fun getaway. The house itself is styled nicely. You feel like your in a hotel with the way it's setup but the comfort of a home. The owners were really nice they stopped by when we arrived to make sure we were okay. Definitely would love to return here!

Gorgeous property, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Carriage House. We were there for the Rock N Roll Marathon and it was the perfect location, just 5 min walking from the start line and a very short drive to the finish line. The house was immaculate and so comfortable for our family. The kitchen and bathrooms were stocked with details like coffee, tea, qtips, blow dryers, and lots of extra towels. The beds were all comfortable. We enjoyed the decor and all of the interesting San Diego themed art on the walls. The Carriage House is truly an oasis and a great place to call home for a short or long stay in San Diego. While we didn't get a chance to meet the owners, they were very easy to communicate with and they made everything a breeze. We will be back!
