Large indoor and private outdoor space, good location and child-friendly set up

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our young children (1 and 3) for three days. The set up of this house was great for kids because there are no breakable things in their reach, kid-friendly furniture, and lots of space to run around. The outdoor space was large and walled-in which was also great with little kids. We appreciated the king-sized bed with the kids often sleeping with us. The overall house was recently updated inside with newer kitchen and bathroom fixtures. Also the flooring and other aesthetics were pleasing. The master bathroom is a touch cramped - a taller person would have to sit on the toilet side ways. The bathrooms were well stocked with nice soft towels and some basic shampoo and soap in plentiful quantity. The driveway and laundry are shared with another unit and the laundry hours are 9a-7p which was a little inconvenient with kids because sometimes we were only home outside those hours. If you are a pillow snob like me you may want to bring your own pillow because the pillows were the very hard and inflexible kind and did negatively impact my sleep. Overall bedding was pretty good, mattress slightly soft for my taste but not bad. Overall we had an excellent experience and highly recommend this place for people who want to have space to run around and host dinners - we made two excellent meals here on the gas range. One drawback was the grille was out of propane so be sure to check that before you buy stuff to grille and I am sure the owner will fill that at some point since it is advertised as having a grille! My husband and I are runners and were happy to find a trail at the end of the street to connect to a decent trail system. We were also very close to the zoo to take the kids (though beware the $50 admission fee per person!) and we loved the proximity to trader joe’s and whole foods! We would definitely stay here again if back in San Diego because of the overall quality of the house, location, kid-friendliness, and professionalism of the owner. We had no issues accessing the property which sometimes we take for granted but is very important!

Beautiful, Well Appointed, Great location, Great for kids and Dogs

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights in the duplex in San Diego. My wife and I stayed with our dog and toddler. The villa has a great enclosed yard, and all the amenities a family would need to be comfortable. Located near countless places to eat, Balboa Park and the Zoo.

Ricardo is very kind and responsive to any messages or questions.

Definitely would stay again, and recommend to other families who want to enjoy some time in San Diego.

We especially enjoyed the beautiful yard and the spacious common area. Very nice neighborhood and convenient location.

The cupboard was a little short on glassware and there were ants in the kitchen, but those are minor problems.

Fantastic Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! We only had a one-night stay and were disappointed that we couldn't stay longer to take advantage of all that the house and yard offered. The house was scrupulously clean and well-equipped, the furnishings are very attractive, and the (very walkable) street is quiet and tree-lined. Parking close to the house was a breeze. In the house, you'll find tons of closet space. Chocolates on the beds. A front porch which practically begs for you to relax on it with coffee in the morning or wine in the evening. Ricardo supplied us with a list of many of his favorite restaurants and other local attractions. We highly recommend San Diego Grand Villa!
