We love homes, vacations, people, and customer service. Making people happy in beautiful environments is our 'thing.'

Beth Galdieri purchased this villa in 2012

When we saw this building, with its old world charm and quaint sophistication- we knew that we had to own it, renovate it- and then provide with fabulous, beautiful, comfortable and 'cool' accommodations where people could relax, enjoy the Park, the Zoo, the many restaurants- all within the context of a local San Diego Urban Walk able neighborhood experience. AND WE ARE 10 MINUTES AWAY FROM FABULOUS BEACHES!

This building is thought to have been owned a century ago by a church nearby and resided in by church members or out of town visitors. It is a beautiful building and stands out as regal yet simple. This combination of simplicity and beauty attracted us. Additionally, we were inspired by a European vacation where we found quaint older buildings renovated with a mix of Asian, modern and European touches that made our vacation more enjoyable. We wished to pass these feelings on to others.

PERFECT NEIGHBORHOOD AND WONDERFUL ACCOMODATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 3 just stayed at this condo in San Diego and we did not want to leave! North Park is an awesome neighborhood full of of great restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, bars, etc and all are within walking distance from this condo. We were particularly impressed with the fold out sofa bed. Most sofa beds are uncomfortable and flat but not this one. This one had an electronic blow up mattress attached and the bed stayed full and firm the entire 5 days we were there. My son was able to sleep comfortably the entire time.

Very impressed... will stay again if we come back to San Diego.

PERFECT!!!

  • 5 of 5
Villa Barajas was absolutely perfect for my family of four. The accommodations were great...everything you need is there. We stayed in the large 1 bedroom and the decor is beautiful. We were close to every attraction, SeaWorld, Zoo, Coronado Island, Birch Aquarium and Beaches. Tons of nearby shopping and places to eat....even walking distance. We loved coming back to Villa Barajas after spending the day out. Thank you!

PERFECT FAMILY GETAWAY SPOT

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I brought our 2.5 year old to San Diego for a week to celebrate our anniversary and have a family getaway before our second baby arrives this fall. We've been to SD before and knew we wanted to stay in a fun, quiet neighborhood with great nearby restaurants. North Park and Villa Barajas fit the bill perfectly. The unit was immaculate and left us wanting for nothing. We could get to any desired destination (including Coronado beaches) in 15 minutes or less - perfect! Every restaurant we hoped to visit was nearby, some even within walking distance. The area was quiet and felt very safe. All in all, it was a dreamy getaway. Our daughter has asked every day since our return when we can go back to "the pink house in San Diego," and we have happily assured her that we will be back!

BEAUTIFUL PLACE, DISSATISFIED WITH MONEY WITHHELD FROM SECURITY DEPOSIT

  • 2 of 5
This is a great location close to Balboa Park. The apartment is well designed and well furnished. Very attractive. There were, however, a lot of caveats about taking care of the place, don't wear shoes, you will be charged if this happens or that happens. Before we left, we swept the floor, wiped things down, washed the dishes, unloaded the dishwasher etc as requested. The next day I got an email saying that there were stains on the white sheets, pillow cases and sham. When I stripped the bed, I saw nothing. We used no lotion except for sunscreen in the early morning that would have worn off by night. I was emailed photos, but still saw nothing. Perhaps it was the photo quality, I don't know. I was charged for replacing the allegedly stained items and in addition, a considerable amount for staff time for trying to remove the stains. I replied that it seemed to me sheets would be in the cost of doing business and CERTAINLY the staff time was a cost of doing business. I received no reply to my comments. If you rent here, be very careful.

The charge for staff time in particular, was over the top. I saw no mention of charging for staff time. All sheets and towels in the unit are white.

Owner's Response: We really hate charging anyone and do whatever we can to avoid it, but these linens just could not be salvaged. White towels and linens are the hotel and hospital standard for good reason -- guests can see they are clean, soil and stains on white can be more readily treated, and when all else fails, there is bleach, which has saved many, many items. We were rather shocked when this guest, without any apology for the damages, went on to assert this should all be our "cost of doing business." If you want meticulously clean, upscale, yet inexpensive - we are here - to serve you the best product at the lowest price - and with 24/7 customer service, too. All we ask is that if you damage something to the point where we have to replace it - you pay. Most folks appreciate this immensely and take responsibility for their mistakes, rather than retaliate.

SUPER CLEAN, SUPER COZY

  • 5 of 5
We (3 of us) spent a terrific couple of days. The apt is super clean and adorably decorated - with much nicer fixtures than you'd typically find in a rental. (Bosch dishwasher!) Easy in and out, close to the park and Upas Ave in North Beach. Gail and Beth are terrific hosts. Loved it. Would definitely stay again. Thanks for a very pleasant weekend.

WONDERFUL WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
My husband surprised me for Mothers Day weekend! And what a surprise it was! The accommodations were absolutely lovely! Sparkling clean! Location was out standing.we walked to Balboa Park-3 blocks away and played Tennis! Then ate at a local eatery which was so homey and beach like! The best part is that we were only 10 minutes away from Coronada Island and in a hop and a skip we spent a full day at the "Hotel Del". The weekend was Wonderful! Can't wait to go back!
