About A. Fakhimi

Hello, my name is Alex Fakhimi and I am a dentist living in San Diego for the last 14 years. I moved here because of the beautiful city and the amazing weather as I'm sure why it is such a hot spot for vacationers. I use VRBO regularly for my own vacations and I know what it takes to offer a high quality house with the best amenities as well as convenience to local attractions, restaurants, etc. I pride myself and my homes to being some of the best you will find on VRBO. All of our guests have been quite pleased for going above and beyond their expectations regarding their stay in our home. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have; and enjoy your stay. Alex,

A. Fakhimi purchased this estate in 2009

Why A. Fakhimi chose Old Town

I chose to buy a vacation rental in San Diego because it's where I live. In fact i live only a couple of miles away from all of the vacation homes I have in San Diego. I believe it is one of the most beautiful places in the world that you can visit anytime of the year. That's why it's called 'Sunny San Diego'

What makes this estate unique

Some of the Unique benefits you will enjoy staying at my property are: the panoramic views from the house, the luxury of the house with beautiful decorations, furniture, elegance, privacy, pool, jacuzzi, BBQ. The convenience to all San Diego attractions. You will feel like you are staying in a resort.

Amazing Pool, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of friends - 4 couples, and 2 singles, who stayed in this house for a week. The house is clean, nicely furnished, and in a nice location - a short walk to old town, and several nearby restaurants. It is close to the airport, but the airplanes do not fly over the house. The outdoor space is what makes this house truly special, with ample outdoor seating, and an amazing pool and jacuzzi. The pool was clean, and we paid for the pool to be warmed. Also nice that it is salt-water, so no chlorine smell. The roof deck is very large and provides great views of downtown, the bay, and the airport (watching planes land at night is actually pretty cool). Dishwasher, and Washer and dryer were modern and worked well. Ali, the owner was very responsive during the reservation process, and during our stay as well, answering all questions we had quickly. Highly recommended.

Needs some work.......

  • 3 of 5

Eight friends from high school in their early 60's rented this house for 5 nights. We liked the fact that the house is conveniently located to so many sights and it's size. However, it needs to be cleaned better between rentals. A good DEEP cleaning would go a long way. The floors were so bad that after walking around barefoot for only a short while, the bottoms of our feet would be black. The place is located very close to the airport so it could be exhaust fumes from all the planes that leave residue on the floor. All the same, the cleaning crew should realize this and scrub and vacuum even more diligently to get the floors clean. The pool was rather dirty as well as was the outdoor seating areas. On the patio on the third floor was an old half-smoked cigar that had been there a while.

We found pots and pans in the cupboards with food and sauces on them that were still in liquid form.....pretty icky. Nice bathrooms with lots of towels but only one wash cloth to each bathroom.

The air conditioners in all the rooms need a good overhauling if not replacement. Three of them were not working hardly at all the first night we were there. We called the owner and someone came the next day and worked on them. That night another one of the air conditioners started " screaming" around 1:00 in the morning. One of the gals in our group managed to get it shut down. We called again to the owner the next day and he had a repair person lined up to come over in the morning. Two calls later to the repair guys ( and now 4:00 in the afternoon) we finally get the guy to show up by threatening to take some sort of action. He apologized when he got there for smelling like beer since he had been in a bar that afternoon . No wonder he didn't want to come fix the air conditioner.

The AC worked that night and then started " screaming " again an hour or so before we checked out the next day. We turned it off and told the cleaning person about it.

So, on the plus side the house has a lot of room ( three floors so if anyone has stairs issues it's not the place to rent) , a nice private and good sized pool and hot tub...very private. The owner is responsive .

On the minus side, the place is not the cleanest, the AC is not reliable and the dishes and kitchen cooking pots and pan need to be cleaned or replaced. The owner may be responsive but the people he's using for repairs and cleaning don't appear to be the best.

Owner's Response: Dear Carol, I'm sorry that you had a bad experience at our house. I never received any complaints from you about this house other than not knowing how to work the air conditioner. Those AC units are brand new in that house, less than 2 years old and it is controlled with a remote control as well as the pots and pans in the house that are less than 1 year old. The AC repair man was actually on another job and does not drink. I have known him for years. It took him a couple of hours to arrive to the house because he was on another service call several miles away. This house is no where near the flight path of the airport and there would be no exhaust from an airplane at this house since you cant even hear the planes taking off or landing. The floors are all hard wood floors and are thoroughly mopped prior to any guest's arrival. We recommend to all of our guests to inspect the house upon their check in and if there are any issues with the house, to call me immediately and we will remedy the problem as soon as possible. Again I'm sorry for your trouble, but besides not knowing how to work the AC system, You did not bring up any other issues with the house. I take great pride in my two houses that I offer as a vacation rental and want all of our guests to have the most utmost satisfaction while staying in our home.

Beautiful vacaion home

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed this beautiful house in San Diego. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor living sections, most especially the pool and spa. This was like an oasis with beautiful palm trees and comfortable furniture. The home is modern, spacious and beautifully decorated. We definitely stay there again.

Great family vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We slept 10 very comfortably in the house. There were a few issues but nothing major and the owner was quick to answer any questions and help in any way. The pool and outdoor hot tub were a big hit with the kids (4 years old to 8 years old). The garage is very small so unless you have a small car plan on parking on the street. Our kids car seats were stolen out of our rental van in broad daylight as we were about to pack the van for the trip back to the airport. Even with that (which was not the owner's fault of course) we'd still recommend the property and we plan on staying there again. It's absolutely perfect for any large group that wants to see the sights and spend the downtime together.

Great house! Centrally good location. The owner is very receptive to fixing any problems you might have. Lovely pool and spa. Kitchen is updated with the latest appliances. Very nice outdoor spaces from the front porch, to the main floor patio, to the pool deck areas and, of course, the rooftop deck. Old Town is within walking distance. The zoo, sea world, downtown and beaches and the harbor are within 15 minutes. We loved our week at this Tuscan Estate.

Family Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There are many attractions within a very short distance. I'm not a big fan of stairs, but gave it a 5 star rating based on the usability, layout, and beauty of the listing. The grand kids had a ball in the hot tub and pool. Many good restaurants within very short distances. We also enjoyed being able to make our own meals without having to eat out all the time. I thought it was a great place for all of our family to spend the week.
