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.

Comfortable and Charming

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed my stay at the Carriage House. It is in a prime location for tourist attractions, quaint restaurants and coffee shops. The neighhood is upscale and feels safe. The decor of the house and property made me not want to leave. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for comfort and charm.

Great place for family visit to San Diego

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House Lower Unit (2BR/2Bath) was perfect for my wife, kids and me during our stay in San Diego. Well-designed, restored and detailed, the CH is not only beautiful, but nicely appointed in the living area, kitchen and bathrooms. Beds were very comfortable, and we all slept great. There is no neighborhood noise, yet access to many places to eat and drink (coffee or cocktails) is just a short walk away. The location is very convenient to everything we did in SD. Laura and Don were very easy to work with, very responsive during our stay, and we look forward to repeat visits!

Wonderful, beautiful and right near Balboa Park!

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House is homey, beautiful and extremely well-located. Our stay was wonderful before we even arrived as we were in text touch and the owners were very quick to respond to questions. The home itself was gorgeous inside and comfortable. There was a book with all kinds of restaurant recommendations and tips about San Diego. We had a short but lovely stay.
