We had such a great time at this house! It had everything we needed for our families! Backyard was perfect and walking distance to the beach! If we had questions Kevin responded very quickly! We would definitely stay there again!
There was 8 of us that stayed at this house. 4 adults and 4 kids (ages 14, 10, 8 &7) The best part was the backyard. The kids loved the pool and the adults loved the hot tub and the fire pit. Very relaxing after busy days with lots of walking! Beyond that, the house was just okay. When we got there I attempted to contact the property manager because there were random messes left behind from the last renters and I’m pretty sure we all pay a cleaning fee. A couple wet towels on the washing machine, a few dirty utensils in the dishwasher, a used nail file on the hot tub, what looked like peanut butter on the counter top, muffin papers on the deck. It took a little for someone to get back to me but he did. And he did agree to give me my cleaning fee back. But you can’t help but think what else wasn’t cleaned if the obvious things aren’t cleaned. And I got the impression that once he refunded my cleaning fee, nothing more was needed to be done.
I think overall, this is an old house that’s a little dated. There were some complaints about the uncomfortable beds from 2 of us. Our biggest complaint for the master bedroom is that it doesn’t have a window above the air conditioner! Just blinds hanging down over a open window. So the street noise in the mornings made it tricky to sleep. We were up early because we were sleeping with an open window. Thank goodness for no bugs!! The washing machine wasn’t working well. Even with the smallest of loads it took 2-3 spin cycles to get the water out. All these things were mentioned to the property manager and Kevin so hopefully these will be acknowledged and taken care of for the next family coming in.
Reading reviews in the past I never understood why people didn’t just call and voice their complaints and have them fixed. But now I understand that after 2 or 3 texts/emails, it’s sometimes easier just to suck it up then to be constantly texting with little result.
So overall, the house was fine. Nothing so bad that it ruined our trip but compared to the house we stayed in after this one, this was a little old and needs some TLC.
Great outside area, marginal inside
Pros: The pool and playground areas were fantastic. Plenty of towels and dishes. The off-street parking was very helpful. Nice large master bedroom and closet. Cons: We were infested with ants in every room. There were maintenance issues and when these were reported, the problems were not addressed (master bedroom electrical outlets didn't work and need for toilet plunger). The lock box on front of the house was unlocked and there was no way to lock it. Back gate lock didn't work either - security issue, There were three broken chairs. There were wet sheets in the washer when we arrived. All outside garbage cans were already full when we arrived. The instruction book could be updated. There was an ironing board but no iron.
The place had everything we needed. We just went as a single family, 2 adults and 2 kids, but it has enough room for multiple families. The backyard was nice with a play area for the kids. We have 2 boys, ages 4 and 5. The weather was high 60s-low 70s so we asked for the pool to be heated. We enjoyed the hot tub, pool and water slide. The place is several blocks to the beach, restaurants and coffee shops. We took a long walk to the beach and pier but there is also parking by the beach. The beach also has 2 playgrounds that the kids enjoyed. Kevin and the property manager were prompt in answering our questions.
Spring Break 2018
The property was well kept and in a great location! The front lawn and back yard area (horse shoe pit) could use some weeding/maintenance, but it didn't deter us from having a WONDERFUL time. We had 6 adults and 4 children and had room to spare. The pool/hot tub, fire pit and playground were amazing. We had one issue with the pool heat/hot tub not turning on, however we called Kevin and he was so nice and got back to us right away. The beds were comfortable and the downstairs living area was perfect for the kiddos in the evening. Overall I would definitely recommend this property to future San Diego travelers looking for a family friendly home to complete their vacation!
