Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic experience staying in the Carriage House! Our 12 year old granddaughter loved having her own bedroom and bath! Owners were very accommodating! Great location, very close to Balboa Park! Highly recommended this place on Facebook!

Than you very much!

Very nice and clean, excellent location, attentive owners, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We appreciated the proximity to Balboa Park, 2 bathrooms, comfortable couch, responsiveness of the owners, child seat, and on-site laundry. The only thing that could be improved are the beds- they are a little too stiff.

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

I fell in love with this home as soon as I stepped in. The interior design is stunning. It is very clean and the location was absolutely perfect. The neighborhood is very quiet which is great! Laura was also very helpful with all of our needs as well. I will definitely be coming back!

We really enjoyed our stay at this adorable Carriage House! We loved that it was filled with anything you could need, and it was updated, clean as a whistle and ideally located near the Park and Prado/Zoo. Highly recommend it!! Parking was never a real issue for us.

Classy Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully decorated, very cozy, functional and ideally located Carriage House provided us with a fabulous 'home away from home' in San Diego. The next time we need a place to stay in San Diego, this will be our first choice!

My Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I love this property! It is the bottom unit of a carriage house and the old world decor is exactly my taste. The decorating details are amazing. I was there for 3 weeks. . .too much time to be out touring all the time. Relaxing in this unit was just delightful. In fact, I hardly needed to leave to be happy because this place is so homey and comfortable.

But leave I did because the neighborhood is sooo charming. I think of Bankers Hill as urban-light. One has the fun of little cafes and shops sprinkled around the area as well as Balboa Park, a real jewel with museums, theatre, a fun restaurant as well as many outdoor recreation activities, within an easy walk. And the Gaslamp District is 2 miles away, Hillcrest with all its funky, hip vibe and Landmark movie theatre less than that. Coronado is an easy 4 miles away. This location in an older, more historic part of San Diego simply couldn't be better (unless one is there strictly for a beach vacation).

Finally, Laura is wonderful. She is very responsive and eager to help. I will be returning again and again.
