My friends and I stayed at the Gillespie House recently and were truly pleased. Not sure why it was named that way, we asked the host and were told about the airport nearby. It was fun to watch the old WWII planes landing. Anyway, it’s neat that they incorporated the name. There are 3 bedrooms, each named after a different color and it’s cool because the linens are all color-coordinated as well. Perfect for knowing what belongs where. The scenery outside is simply breathtaking and there is a grill outside on the patio. We cooked outside and because the kitchen has all the essentials we only had to worry about buying our food, not tons of spices, etc.
The house is up on a hill so it’s very secluded and offers tons of privacy. There’s even dedicated parking for the unit on the driveway. Because of the hill, you get a 360 of San Diego. Hosts were gracious and amicable.
Great house, I'd definitely rent again on my next trip down to San Diego. House was clean. Linen and towels all nice and clean. Overall very comfortable house. Only thing of note is that with a full house... the little 4 cup coffee maker is too small. Other than that - this is a nice place to stay.
