Tired old place in need of updating

  • 2 of 5
The rental price is likely all about the location and maybe the jacuzzi and new grill? Not sure. Not even sure where to begin. We had 4 adults and 4 children which should have been quite comfortable. The first bedroom had a bed hard as a rock. The second bed was ok, and the third bed was comfortable, but not even on a frame (just on the floor blocking the closet). The top bunk was way too high to be safe. Plus, the cob webs were terrible up there so no one wanted to use it. The dishes were absolutely filthy. Chunks of food on plates and cutlery so we washed everything before we used it. We have a rental house a few blocks away which is occupied because we no longer live in SD. We borrowed pots and pans from our tenants. The pots and pans in this house have teflon flaking off of them when you wash or use them. Several windows do not function and they are OLD! It was hot and we could not even open one of the windows at all. Luckily, we are from this area and we knew that the beach you are closest to here is a surfing beach. Therefore, you cannot swim right at the access point here. It's about another 300-500ft. Not a big deal, but just be aware. If you have a stroller, maybe walk through the neighborhood as long as possible. To top everything off, there was major construction next door that started at 7 am and they were even working the weekends! The manager/owner had nothing to say about this. Our small children found nails and screws in the backyard and the deck and garden was not used as much as we would have liked due to the noise and tar smell. Construction trucks often blocked our driveway and we were asked to move the car down the street once. We had a plumbing problem the first night, but it was taken care of promptly. I only review things when I am extremely pleased or terribly disapponted and I must say this is for the latter.

Owner's Response: We appreciate this bad review because it gives us the opportunity to make improvements. It is difficult to find the time to change the furniture or cookware and to make repairs, because this home is booked all the time. We have repeat guests returning to this budget home year after year because of it's ideal location close to the beach. This home is booked until June 1, 2015 with only 2 weeks available at the end of August, 2015. We plan to take this guest's advice and replace some beds, possibly remove the bunk bed, and review the condition of the other furniture and amenities. The out door furniture and barbeque grill were replaced prior to this guest's arrival with a new grill and new furniture. A new bamboo hedge was also planted to replace a large tree that fell during the Santa Ana winds in May 2014. There is no excuse for dirty dishes or inadequate cookware, so we will be reviewing the kitchen equipment and replacing any old items as well as reviewing this with the cleaning staff.

As for the beach nearby, it is a matter of opinion as to whether or not the beach is good for swimming vs. surfing. Our children swam at Tourmaline Beach a half block from this house when they were 2 and 3 years old. The beach is many miles long, so there are plenty of places to swim, surf or boogie board within a close walk from this home.

The construction project next door took place without notice. Private owners are able to demolish small older homes and build new homes without notifying neighbors, and new construction in La Jolla and Pacific Beach is booming! Fortunately, the new home next door is close to completion and there should be no more construction noise, as only the interior work is now being completed. None of our other Summer and Spring guests had any complaints about the construction, so we are sorry this guest had a bad experience with the construction noise during their stay. We will be checking closely for nails and screws that may have dropped into the yard from the neighbor. Safety is a priority.

This home is not large, approximately 1000 s'f' so it is probably not the most comfortable choice for 4 adults and 4 children. It is an affordable beach cottage close to a sandy beach with a private jacuzzi and yard.

Best location!

  • 5 of 5
This home was so close to the beach, we were able to stroll to the beach many times a day with toddlers. The jacuzzi was like a small pool for the kids with the temperature turned down. In the evening, it was the perfect place to relax with the kids asleep nearby. The house is small but the deck and yard are large and feel like an extension of the house. The home was breezy and comfortable with the windows open during the day, and ceiling fans at night, no need for A/C. We especially liked the proximity to ocean front walk. My wife jogged the 6 mile loop to the jetty with the ocean on one side and the bay on the other, no cars or traffic. We would highly recommend this beach cottage for families that enjoy the beach and outdoors.

Very Disappointed

  • 1 of 5
Our family recently spent a week at the Casita in July. To say we left disappointed would be an understatement. I don't even know where to begin and have actually never written a negative review but this time felt compelled to. 1st off the house was dirty and run down. Half the windows don't open and when the house is at 87 degrees and you don't have AC you need to open windows. The sheets in the main 2 bedrooms had holes in them and the towels were one wash away from disintegrating. The kitchen was not cleaned well at all, we had to rewash half the utensils/dishes. When we complained about it (and the cleaning fee we paid for) we were told yes it was unacceptable but because we showed up early we flustered the house cleaner. (we did show up early but only to park the car and then went to the beach).
It was bad enough that on the first night (while sitting outside because half the fans didn't work and the house was still 86 degrees at 8 at night) we were considering leaving. Overall the best i can explain it is we feel disappointed and cheated by our experience. Luckily our kids are young and they enjoyed the beach, SeaWorld, LegoLand etc. The owners were very pleasant and did offer to run over some extra fans when we called but for money we spent we expected the house to be in much better shape because that kind of money for a week can get you some very nice hotel rooms.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear about this family's disappointment in the Casita. All the linens and towels have since been replaced with new ones. This home is a very popular beach rental,and is booked year round, with few vacancies, so we appreciate the feedback on the need to update the linens and we took care of that immediately. We gladly would have brought over new sheets right away, during this Guest's stay, but there was no mention of this issue until this written review. We did bring over additional fans at 9pm as soon as we received a call about the Guest not being able to turn on the ceiling fans. We also showed the Guest how to turn on all the ceiling fans and how to open the windows, which were all operational. During this particular week, we experienced record breaking heat in San Diego. 87 degrees a half block from the beach is extreme weather for Pacific Beach and La Jolla. We also offered to have the home re-cleaned, at no additional cost, but the Guests refused to accept the offer. Most owners and property managers really do want their Guests to have positive experiences, so it is helpful if Guests call immediately when there is an issue, so that there is an opportunity to correct the problem, rather than to wait until after the visit is over to write a bad review.

Great place and location

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at Coastal Casita for Sprint break with our two young boys.

House was perfect - they could go to sleep while adults could still enjoy the great deck. Location was quiet and peaceful. The hot tub and the grills were big hits for the week.

Close to everything - all of the major parks, great restaurants in Pacific Beach and La Jolla (The Cottage for breakfast).

Beach is steps away

Meets all expectations!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in February, and it was a wonderful week. The house is small and comfortable, and has everything you need. The neighborhood is great, and you can walk to the beach, restaurants (The Fishery is great), coffee shops (we loved Java Jams), and you're a short drive from Ralph's for groceries. Your close to the Bird Rock shops, the Cove in La Jolla, and all the San Diego attractions. Our dogs loved the place, but we honestly could not tell any other dog had ever stayed there - it was so clean. A great place to stay.

Great Location so close to the Beach!

  • 5 of 5
We loved the Coastal Casita, just a stroll to the beach for early morning walks with our dogs on the beach and sunset walks too! We enjoyed breakfast at KONO's and bike rides on Ocean front walk all the way to the Jetty, six miles of biking without a car in site, just the ocean and great people watching too! The huge yard and deck and jacuzzi were perfect for barbeques with the family. This home is a secluded sanctuary, peaceful and quiet on a cul de sac, yet so close to the beach and town. We'll be back!
