This property was everything we could ask for - clean, nicely furnished and equipped, great location
This property is an excellent choice. It is decorated and furnished tastefully giving it a very welcoming and comfortable feel. The kitchen is efficient and well-stocked with all of the necessities. The bed was comfortable. The condition couldn't have been better -- clean and well-maintained. The location near the medical center and in an active, walkable urban community with plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping as well as convenient access to Balboa Park was just what we wanted. Underground parking as well as off-street guest parking provided added convenience.
The owners were clearly committed to making our stay enjoyable and stress free, and they absolutely succeeded. They readily accommodated our arrival schedule which was late and departure time which was early. When a problem with the drain in the kitchen sink was reported, one of the owners took care of it personally and graciously within 15 minutes of receiving my report of the problem.
This was our first use of VRBO (or any other apartment rental service). Our experience could not have been better, and I have nothing but good things to report. I look forward to staying at this property next year if our schedule and the unit's availability again align.
Excellent- I recommend to everyone!
I spent three months here while on a sabbatical from work in Ireland, working as a visiting professor at UCSD. This rental was fantastic for several reasons. Firstly, to be arriving from a distant country to only spend a short rental period, it was very difficult to place trust in many advertised rentals; this was not the case at all with Michael. Michael always replied promptly, addressed any concerns with respect to paying a deposit from afar, and was there to greet me upon arrival. During my stay, he respected his tenant's autonomy but still kept in touch about any building issues or updates (e.g. refurbishing of elevator, etc.). The deposit was also promptly returned with no issue. The apartment itself is well furnished with necessary furniture, aircon, a good tv/internet service, and a huge fridge/freezer; overall, the place is very comfortable to live in. On the other hand, if you are not planning on remaining indoors, its location in Hillcrest is great for amenities and is well-connected for exploring San Diego, with places like Balboa Park and Downtown nearby, and a free shuttle to UCSD campus up near La Jolla. The place also has a secure underground car park space at no additional cost. Overall, I would highly recommend this rental, and should I ever be returning to San Diego in future for a similar stay, I will be emailing Michael to see if this place is available!
Quiet building-great location
Enjoyed my stay-most items needed were provided- received prompt responses to questions via texts or phone calls and window situation was promptly remedied. The no pets policy was a negative for me.
The apartment was clean and comfortable. We felt safe in the building and neighborhood.
We enjoyed our stay. The location was convenient to many venues. Grocery stores and other stores were within walking distance. A washer and dryer are not in the apartment but are only about 6 steps from the apartment door. The apartment more than met our expectations. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils for cooking at home. Michael was pleasant, easy to work with, and accommodating. When we departed I inadvertently left a satchel under the bed and he called me before we reached the train station and offered to deliver the satchel to us at the station. The payment process worked well and and was just as we discussed. The deposit, minus the previously agreed upon cleaning fee, was returned to us promptly.
This place was everything I needed when I moved cross country for a travel nursing assignment. Michael was very accommodating from the time I booked until the week after I left. I couldn’t ask for a better experience. The apartment is in an awesome location in Hillcrest with plenty of things to do and see. It was also a 6 minute walk to work which made it extremely convenient after a long shift. It had all the amenities and furnishings that I could ever want including coffee maker, toaster and iron/ironing board. The bed was very comfortable and had a balcony outside of the bedroom which was perfect for soaking in the sun while having a cup of coffee in the morning! Even after my stay, Michael was a great host and followed up with me prior to leaving to make the process smooth and convenient. I almost never write reviews, but Michael and his place certainly deserves a stellar one! Hope you enjoy this place and San Diego as much as I did
Nice and Cozy Home in Hillcrest
Michael and Bob are great hosts. They were really nice and helpful throughout our stay, communication was flawless. The pictures in the profile are spot on. The home looks exactly like what you see in the pictures. It was really clean, relaxing, and private. It is also really close to the freeways, shopping, and downtown. The perfect home in a great location. Thanks Michael and Bob, my family enjoyed our stay at your lovely home.
