Beautiful , comfortable and quiet.
Beautiful residence. Very comfortable and wonderfully decorated and GREAT location.
This was a perfect choice for our stay in San Diego! The neighborhood was quiet and parking was easy. The location had great walking access to restaurants and just blocks from Balboa Park. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils and kitchenware for cooking any of our own meals. Bedrooms were a good size and nice storage throughout. Definitely a return visit on our next time in San Diego. Owners were very responsive! Marian B.
Very nicely decorated upstairs unit
Very comfortable 2 bedroom upstairs unit behind main duplex. Nicely decorated and well stocked small kitchen. The location is urban so one should expect some noise from close by neighbors, but not distracting. Plenty of choices for eating out and very close to Balboa Park. Fairly priced for accommodations.
Quaint, well-kept and great location
We're a couple with one 5 year old and had a great weekend in SD at the Carriage House. Pros are certainly the location (short blocks to Balboa Park and a playground, medium walk/quick drive to many other restaurants/stores etc either in Banker's Hill or Hillcrest and the nearby zoo). Roomy for one family, might be tight with two couples sharing the one bathroom. Street parking was no problem. To be clear, it was the upstairs unit and the downstairs was rented to another family - they were great, but we almost felt we were invading their space to walk to our stairwell. There's a little outdoor patio but for the most part we were out and about so didn't mind the lack of outdoor space. We didn't use the kitchen or TV so can't comment. Air conditioning and fans kept us cool in the hot weather.
The only hiccup was that I had to reach out to Don for the arrival instructions as we hadn't received any even by our check in day. He was gracious however and also when he touched base on our check out day.
Overall a fantastic place to stay, a few ticks below a true 5 star but I sense our drawbacks were trivial/atypical. Still highly recommend overall!
Beautiful pied a tier in San Diego's best neighborhood
We loved our stay at the Carriage House in Banker's Hill. The location is perfect. It is walking distance to Balboa Park and Hillcrest with convenient driving access to the rest of the city. Restaurants, markets and sights are all very close. The unit is very well decorated and maintained with a lot of character. It has an old so-cal feel but with modern touches in the kitchen and bath. It is really in an old carraige house across a very nice patio behind the main house. This gives the unit a lot of privacy and makes for quiet evenings. Don and Laura made us feel welcome and comfortable.
Everyone is different, but we found the beds SUPER comfortable.
Lovely and well situated
Always a pleasure to stay here. The apartment is well appointed and the location is great. It is a rare gem near great neighborhood restaurants and all that Balboa Park has to offer. Being near both I5 and 163 freeways makes it easy to get to the beaches.
Always a pleasure to host this guest. Wonderful guests that respect the property and surroundings. Highly recommend!!!
