had potential, but an unhappy stay

  • 1 of 5

Our girls' weekend at this property started off poorly with the housekeepers still there when we arrived at 3pm, and they surprisingly left without mopping or finishing the cleaning. Then the AC broke, during a hot weekend, making it hard to sleep. Normally we'd just open the windows, but that wasn't an option because the property is on a busy street; traffic and passers were too noisy. The back and forth with the owners was a challenge and disappointing. We requested a discount on the 2 miserable nights, and all we got in response from the owner was an implication that we were lucky to get our damage deposit back, as if we had anything to do with the broken AC. There are other places to stay in this lovely area for the amount of $ being asked - I would book elsewhere.

Owner's Response: Our family is sorry to hear you had an unhappy stay. We strive to provide only the best experience while you enjoy our home and our community on your vacation. Our house cleaners provide exceptional attention to detail, and we regret it took an extra 15 minutes to provide the spotless home you deserve upon your arrival. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, to prevent this problem in the future. We are sad and surprised to see your review, because when we spoke you thanked us and you mentioned “It was no big deal, we were able to co-mingle as they finished mopping, and the house was perfect.” Unforeseen events, out of our control, can occur. Unfortunately the AC coils froze over after it was set to run at 62 degrees, resulting in repair half way through your stay. When we were notified of the problem at 1:03 am Saturday morning we responded in minutes and were apologetic for not being able to provide an AC repairman in the middle of the night on a holiday weekend. We discussed solutions with you, including opening windows to enjoy the current ocean breeze of 71 degrees and using ceiling fans in each room, while allowing the unit to thaw out. At 10:30 am the next day, the AC was inspected and it was determined that we needed a replacement part to complete the repair. We provided extra fans for the rooms. Pacific Beach is one of the most popular destinations in San Diego. The 4th of July Weekend will draw ½ million people to enjoy perfect weather and beautiful beaches. We agree the house is in one of most desirable locations at the beach, and the crowds can produce noise. We appreciate that you sent us a message thanking us for promptly addressing the issue and doing everything we could to fix the AC. Our family is shocked to hear about your hardship, after your stay. We're sorry you couldn’t sleep due to the heat and people walking on the beach and you would like a refund. We responded within minutes to all questions and could have addressed your problems during your stay. We pride ourselves on making your stay the best it can be, and we do not feel sleeping in 71 degree temperatures at a desirable beach, warrants a refund of your stay. We know by not refunding your money, it caused a one star review, but we have learned from this, and we will prevent the AC unit from causing future headaches. Please feel free to read all of our other reviews, and thank you for understanding.

Love this home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our family for a couple days get away and loved this Home. The interior design is top notch resort! The sinks were all custom and so neat. Loved the wood floors. Perfect location near beach and shops. We walked down to the light and across the street is the beach. We used one of the boogie boards and my nephew loved it! Thanks for all the supplied beach towels. We parked out front and ended up not having to drive much at all as we ordered from uber eats/ grub hub, we didn’t want to leave the house it was so fun and views better than any restaurant. Loved the seating arrangements to relax outside. The views of the water and sunset so worth the stay! Beds were comfy. We couldn’t find the air mattress and we didn’t ask but it all worked out with the 4 bedrooms since it only ended up being 8 of us. Loved the kitchen and tv room ; kids shut the door off and watched a movie. We sat out by the outdoor fireplace. Kitchen very well stocked. The only thing that would make it even better would be to have a couple more chairs on the roof that are bar height. There was a tall table with 2 bar stool chairs and a table w low chairs. The roof was the best! We used one of the shorter chairs and I couldn’t see the sun setting so I stood. But loved the fresh air and views . Beautiful home. Thank you for sharing your home with VRBO.

We were here with a group of friends for a weekend getaway, and had a great time! A perfect house for our size group. The beds were super comfortable! And the outside spaces at the house are great to enjoy outside activities! Oh, and the LOCATION is awesome!!!

We would recommend this house without a doubt!

Graduation Getaway

  • 4 of 5

I went online looking for a last-minute beach getaway after our son graduated. The home is gorgeous! It is in close proximity to the beach, Belmont Park and much more!! Jon was attentive to our needs when we needed him. The only downfall I can say about the location is that the house is located on Mission so you do hear the traffic. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. In the summer everyone wants to be at our beach which can bring extra traffic. Sorry for the traffic but just think how lucky you are to stay in such a high demand area.

Family stay for College Graduation

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully kept and was ideal for our family to stay while attending our son's graduation from UCSD. It slept all of us very comfortably and the house is very well stocked for cooking and BBQing. Great location...easy walk to the beach for gorgeous sunset views and very walkable to downtown PB to enjoy the restaurants, etc. We brought our own air mattress for the extra bedroom and my only comment would be to either inform guests to bring their own extra blankets or provide some for guest use. Otherwise, it's a perfect home for a large family. Thank you for allowing us to use it.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the house and BBQing. Sorry to hear about the sheets. In the downstairs closet we have extra sheets, a quilt, extra pillows and the air mattress. We will make sure they are labeled better next time.
