Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5
My family rented this Golden Hill house while staying in San Diego for my sister's wedding. The location is PRIME. We were a mile away from the reception site downtown at the Palomar Hotel, walking distance to a pre-wedding reception at CounterPoint restaurant and bar, and walking distance to our daily morning coffee at Influx. This home is quaint and exactly as described and pictured online. It was clean and well supplied with all of the amenities you'd need while on vacation. We appreciated Terry's quick response to any questions we had along the way, and found it a very easy process, as this was our first experience with VRBO. Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5
This nice, well kept appartement was perfectly located to discover this beautiful city.. The avocado tree in the backyard what amongts the nice extras, but the réal advantage is the parking spot included. The kitchen was well equipped,and clean, the bed, super comfy, and the 9'+ ceilings gave a lot of cachet to the house...who could ask for more, really?

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5
My husband & I rented this house. It was close to the marathon route that he was running. He was able to walk to the starting line and we walked home from the finish line area. So, it was a great location, close to downtown. It's a hilly area, so if you walk be prepared for that. Also be aware that there are a few steps going up to the entrance. So, if steps are an issue, this place wouldn't be a good choice. It was quiet inside the house. I don't think I ever heard any airplane noise, which really surprised me considering how close they fly. I am usually easily awakened by noise. I think having the air conditioner in the bedroom helped since it makes "white noise". It was unusually warm in San Diego during our stay, so the A/C units were greatly appreciated. It took a while to cool the house down and it didn't ever make the house cold, but it was definitely more comfortable than it would have been without them. It doesn't help that the windows have to be kept cracked open. The sign says they stick if closed. They should have that fixed so the A/C could work more efficiently. It's convenient having 2 bathrooms. But, both the showers are TINY. Seriously, I am a small person and it was tight for me. My husband is 6 ft and found it tough to move around. No bathtub for kids. And, no counter space for a woman to spread out a hair dryer, curling irons, etc. That makes it difficult. I had to set the hair dryer on the floor so I could put the curling iron on the counter. And, that still worried me since it's so close to the faucet. The Wifi worked, but it was very slow. The layout of the house is great. Loved having a living area, kitchen and desk area for our laptop. My husband watched the TV in the living room so it worked well. The posted photos are pretty accurate. It seemed clean and well kept for an older home. Loved having a washer & dryer available. There were quarters as promised as well as a laundry basket. But, you do have to walk outside to get to the laundry area. The bed wasn't as comfortable as I had hoped, but not horrible. The pillows are a bit old and flat. So, newer ones would have been nice. Plenty of towels and they were fluffy and soft. I LOVED having a designated parking spot (driveway). That was so convenient! All in all, we enjoyed our stay. It's a great value considering what you get vs. staying in a tiny hotel room that costs much more. We would rent this house again and recommend to others.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5
It was a great place, very spacious and enjoyed our stay here. The only problem was the parking. Besides that, it was a great place, close to San Diego and a good neighborhood, we walked around a lot most of the time with only two people and didn't find a problem with the neighborhood. It's in a great location and not that far from Downtown San Diego. Will visit again!

Had a great time and the Cottage worked out perfect. Very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was great. The King size bed was extremely comfortable. As a matter of fact , We were wondering if you could give us the name and model # of the mattress, it was so comfortable. We want to purchase one!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for my Birthday weekend and we absolutely LOVED it! The house was very clean and tidy. We got there early and thought check in was at two when it was a three, we called Kate and she got back to us very fast and confirmed what time check in was. The house is historically beautiful and feels like home right when you walk in. We are going to stay here again for sure, we are in love with this home. :)
