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.

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!

Beautiful house, awesome owners, all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

we literally gasped when we entered through the gate into the courtyard. the Carriage house is beautiful! as we walked through the house we were amazed at how beautifully it was decorated. and it really has everything you could ever need in a rental house. so much attention to detail and just little random things that make your stay so much more enjoyable (towels, soap, cleaning supplies, dishes, a helpful guidebook to the area, etc). So much better than a sterile hotel. Laura and Don were so great. very easy to communicate with. Don came by to check up with us when we first arrived to let us know that they were close by if we needed them and after that they just left us on our own which was perfect!! This is my first time renting through VRBO and they totally made the experience so easy and pleasant! the neighborhood was quiet, parking was easy, and close (some walking distance) to all the great restaurants in the area. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway to SD. A couple of the ladies on our trip are already planning a return to the Carriage House, so make sure to book your stay already!

Wonderful Place to Stay in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House is beautifully decorated and conveniently located for many of the popular attractions in San Diego. We had 8 adults and a baby and there was plenty of room and privacy for all. The owners were responsive and went out of their way to come and introduce themselves and meet any need that we had. We visited the San Diego Zoo and the Harbor area. We even took a ride to Coronado Island. All were a short ride from the house. The property has all the accommodations you could want or need including wifi and AT&T Uverse for TV.

Our next visit to San Diego will include a stay at the Carriage House if it is available.
