Wonderful oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at this cute home and the back yard is amazing. The home is centrally located to everything we did while staying in San Diego so nothing took more than 20 minutes to get to. Everything you need near by and some coffee shops, grocery store and restaurants are within walking distance. Owner/ manger was very accessible and responded very quickly to communication. Great home to rent and we would definitely rent again on our next trip to San Diego. The home is stocked with everything you need and we enjoyed several meals in the outdoor dining space. A true hidden gem!

Well Appointed Home Clean, Quiet, Convenient to EVERYTHING

  • 5 of 5

We arrived and it was exactly like the pictures Beautiful Home, and exceptionally clean. And I can’t even explain the quiet tranquil feeling you have here. The backyard Is like your own private resort. It was a short hop on and off the highway to all the local attractions, could not ask for a better location. To our surpise we woke up the first day to the street being closed off for their local Rolando Village Street Faire. BONUS! Food, Music, local artists etc. so, if your ever in town in March check out the upcoming dates it certainly was a FUN celebration. And most importantly Kathryn was so easy and accommodating throughout the rental process and during our stay. Will definitely rent again when in the San Diego area.

Great outdoor space, comfortable home environment

  • 4 of 5

My family loved the pool and hot tub. We spent a lot of time there. And, the house was big enough to allow for all of us to not get on top of each other. The kitchen and dining area had great space. Wonderful to have a washer and dryer. It really did have all the amenities you would need in a home. Very close to a grocery store, restaurants. It was really easy to get to San Diego attractions. The neighborhood was quiet. And the property manager was incredibly attentive when we had questions. The negatives: we really could have used another bathroom (our fault). And, the heavy use/smell of air freshener when we arrived was overpowering. It made me wonder what smell they were covering up and how clean was the space. Despite that, if given the opportunity, we would likely stay at this location again.

Owner's Response: I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and would stay again! We would love to have you! I've spoken with the house cleaners and they will be removing the air fresheners - I assure you there is no smell that needs covering. Thanks again.

Perfect house for what we needed!

  • 4 of 5

For our group of 4 adults and 1 toddler this was a perfect house! Large rooms, clean, and well equipped. Also a huge bonus for us was that it had everything we needed for our 1 year old; high chair, pack and play, house toys and pool toys!

We lived in the pool and hot tub. We paid to have the pool heated. The only complaints were it seemed that you could not heat the pool and hot tub at the same time. In addition it would be really nice to have if the in hot tub controls worked.

House is just off a large main street, however the neighborhood was quiet and felt safe.

Owner's Response: I am so glad to hear you had a great time! It's quite typical that a residential pool and spa would share the same heater. The pool is a larger body of water and it takes quite a lot of time for the temperature to drop if the heat is shifted to the hot tub (for a short period of time -most people use the hot tub for 45 mins-1.5 hours). I am surprised to hear this was a problem for you and I sincerely apologize if it was. Thanks again!

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 adults and 2 kids stayed here, and it was one of the best VRBO experiences we've had, and we have had some great ones. The pool was impossible to get our kids out of, they loved it. The house was great, even for only having one bathroom, we managed fine.

Location, Location, Location!! We were no more than 25 mins to the beach/seaworld/zoo, and within 10 mins of major shopping and grocery areas.

We will definitely be back. Thank you Kathryn!
