Awesome vacation in Hillcrest

  • 5 of 5

Me and my girlfriend drove down from Phoenix to escape the hot weather and stayed in Ricardo's villa. The villa exceeded our expectations and is located in a prime location to all of San Diego's attractions. It is away from the city noise but only 10 mins drive to the Gaslamp Quarters, Zoo, Balboa Park and only 15 min drive from Mission Beach. Ricardo was very easy to deal and assured us if we had any problems to contact him for anything. He also gave recommendations to near by restaurants. The Crest Cafe and Snooze are awesome places for breakfast. If you like Vietnamese food then Pho on 5th Ave has great Pho. We had such a great time we are planning another vacation to SD and would stay at this place again. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed. Thank you Ricardo!

We booked last min for San Diego Comic Con and it was a perfect fit. Clean, very nice, and felt like home. Not far from everything and far enough to relax and unwind. Thanks!

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this cute 1 bedroom house last week while vacationing in San Diego. We throuoghly enjoyed the house, particularly hanging out in the front yard in the late evening and enjoying San Diego weather. House location is convenient to Zoo, Coronado beach and restaurants, which was great. Ricardo is very responsive and when I pinged him to get an air bed and extra sheets for our son, he dropped them off within an hour of our arrival. We also followed some of the restaurant recomemndations he gave us. Overall, a lovely, cosy place for a couple or a small family.

Hillcrest Hide-a-way

  • 4 of 5

The house, altho small, was adequate for two adults who spent our waking time outside--Petco Park,Balboa Park,etc.All appliances we used worked well, the house was very cool, especially in the mornings.Freeway 163 ramps were 4 blocks away, plenty of restaurants, markets(CV,Whole Foods) within 1/2 mile, dedicated gated parking at rear, literally two steps from rear entrance.Only drawback was noisy neighbor's hysterics late at night twice.I expect she was a rental, also.Anyone who rents the house will be more than satisfied
