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.

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.
