Review from our Airbnb listing: word for word
Our stay at Bo and Athena's place in San Diego Gaslamp Quarter was the highlight of our month long holiday in the US. They were the best hosts that anyone could ever ask for and their place was impeccable. Everything is thought of here and it really was the best experience ever. Their places are very secure and super convenient. There is a brand new shopping complex across the road with a supermarket, bakery, ice creamery and other little shops also. The trolley to downtown is 1 block away and quick to get to downtown and all the restaurants and night life. Bo and Athena provided us with all the information that you need to know about the area and San Diego in general. Their place is modern and up to date with everything that you need provided they literally have everything you could possibly need. Their place was extremely clean and comfortable and the only thing we would have changed is we would have stayed much longer here. We would not contemplate staying anywhere else and would not hesitate staying there again. Thank you for your hospitality and we look forward to our next stay with you.
Bo & Athena Rae
Response from Bo & Athena Rae: Brent & Jess, It was such a pleasure meeting both of you, Bo and I really enjoyed getting to know you.. It is extra special when we do get to spend some time with our Guests, and we were so happy we were able to be your Host. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in San Diego. You are a very respectful mature Couple, and we enjoyed our conversations with you both... Bo and I agree with you, the only thing that could have been better, is if you were able to stay longer !! **Bo and I highly recommend Brent & Jess to all owners out there, they treated our home as if it were their own, they went above and beyond to make sure they left our Bungalow in perfect order, way more than Bo and I expected. I know some owners out there have an age limit, as we do , (which they are right there), you can't go wrong with these two, they are the "perfect" Guests.. We sure hope they will come stay with us again, they are welcome anytime !! Bo and I feel very lucky to have had Brent & Jess as our Guests, and we will continue to keep in touch... Thank you for staying with us. Until next time, Athena & Bo
I headed to San Diego with my girlfriend in June for our first vacation together. I was half expecting to not be taken seriously as I was only 21 and my girlfriend 20. Athena called me to tell us that we could check in early - very appreciated. When we arrived, Athena greeted us with a pack of water and gave us a tour. I was so nervous because I had planned this vacation myself and wanted everything to be perfect...and it was! Athena pointed out how to use everything, the larger buildings on the property, where everything was, and some tips for what to see and how to get around. I was so relieved because Athena actually cared about our happiness and checked in multiple times to make sure everything was going well. Unfortunately, Bo was sick during our visit so we only ran into him once, but he was also very friendly. Good people, these two!
The bungalow was beautiful! The bed, table, shower, tv, Netflix, good A/C, outdoor patio, and free parking were wonderful. There was no issue with anything and as it was just the two of us, there was plenty of room. The trees lining the property and the security codes on the doors and at the gate helped us feel secure, even though the area felt safe anyways. Mornings called for coffee from Ryan Bros next door, pastries from the mercado across the way, and eating on the cute patio. Some of my favorite memories were just eating breakfast on the patio - that's how cute it was!
Attached to our room was the garage with a washer and dryer and just about every beach toy you could think of. Even though it was attached to our room and every other person staying on the property had access to it, we never heard anything through the walls. We loved the bodyboards, chairs, and umbrellas, using them every day that we were there. On the first day, we accidentally broke the older bodyboard on a wave. I was prepared to pay for it but upon telling Athena she told me not to worry. Once again, amazing! Additionally, we never encountered anybody besides Athena or Bo on the property. It made us feel like the bungalow was actually ours, and really added to our overall satisfaction of the vacation.
Overall, this was the best vacation experience of my life. It was clean, close to everything, cute, and perfectly located. Athena and Bo seemed to love helping us have the best experience possible. Honestly, when we talk about our SD vacation, we talk about the bungalow more than anything.
People, stay here! You will not be disappointed!
My stay started out with a wonderful orientation by Bo who was there when I arrived by taxi and only got better from there. Apartment is cute, cozy and very convenient to downtown San Diego. Loved being able to walk 1.5 blocks to the trolley, great coffee shop next door and convenient to everything. Apartment has all the amenities you will need. Athena was gracious to share some discount codes for Uber- which I tried and loved. Very responsive to emails and texts. I HIGHLY recommend this property instead of the usual boring hotel room. I was there for 4 nights for a conference and looked forward to relaxing each night. I always seek out unique places to stay when I travel for business and this one is at the top of the list. 1st trip to San Diego as well, hope to get back there sometime.
I am giving this VRBO 5/5 stars. The welcome by Athena was warm and informative. The suite was very clean and had everything (and more) that I needed. It was wonderful to have a patio, barbecue, table and chairs that belonged to my suite. The suite is smallish and very efficient. You probably wouldn't want to put more than 2 people in it. I am 63 years old, was travelling alone, and I stayed in the suite 11 days. I had a 5 day conference, took the trolley to the Omni hotel, and it worked out very well. The area felt very safe. The trolley is about 1 1/2 blocks away, and a bus line 1/2 a block away. Across the street is an amazing, huge grocery store. In the same mall area is an Asian restaurant, a place to pick up pizza and an ice cream parlour. There is a coffee place with some food items right next door. There are two more much bigger suites on the property and I saw one of them. It looked great, and if I was coming with others would definitely try to stay in it. Bravo to Athena and Bo for going above and beyond in making this VRBO so amazing.
Fantastic place to stay! I hesitate to state that because I want the place to myself. Photos are exactly what was presented. I walked daily to convention center - about 20 minutes there. The walk back is a bit 'sketchy' if trying to walk facing traffic, however. Taxi back was about $6. Owners were gracious and VERY accommodating. Market across the street had excellent foods and the largest selection of salsa and ceviche I've ever seen. Next door is the world famous Ryan Brothers Coffee - amazing. Down the street is Los Cuatro Milpas - street fish tacos for $1.25. Neighborhood is totally safe.
Room was comfy for one. Not sure about two in the place, but it could be done. Nice layout. AC is a bit noisy as it goes off/on often. Bed very comfy. Owners have done well to make it comfortable, well stocked and reasonably priced. Whenever I return to San Diego I will only stay here. Thanks so much!
I could not have asked for a better place to stay during our vacation. The property looked exactly like the photos but the photos do not do it justice. It is very clean and has lots of character. It is clear that Athena and Bo take great pride in their properties. They were so welcoming and extremely accommodating. We even got an opportunity to get to know them on a more personal level and they are great people!
We found the location extremely convenient. A lot of places are not quite walking distance, but the trolley station is very close and once we figured out the system it was very easy to use. With the trolley it takes about 5 minutes to get down town. The grocery store across the street was a total God-send. It was so convenient. There are quite a few little restaurants within a couple block radius. There is so much art around the area, it is really fun to just walk around and look at stuff. I would definitely recommend getting a Compass Pass for the trolley and buses. It is the cheapest way to get around if you are staying within a couple miles. The SDMTS website was also extremely helpful for planning our routes with the transit systems.
Overall I HIGHLY recommend this property or renting anything from Athena and Bo. They will take great care of you and do everything they can to make your stay great. We will definitely be staying here again if we go back to San Diego.
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay here. The location is great! It is kind of tucked away from the street so we actually drove right by it when we first arrived.
I would recommend ordering a Compass card online before you go because you are only a couple blocks from the trolley that can take you into the city and there are a number of bus routes available to many places including La Jolla and Coronado. If you decide you would rather drive, keep in mind that you will need to pay for parking most places in the city.
If you do have a car, there is a free parking garage across the street from the bungalow that we used. Across the street there is also a soon-to-be-opening Asian restaurant, a grocery store and Little Caesar's Pizza and there is a coffee house a block away on the corner. You could easily buy some steaks at the grocery store and cook them on the grill.
We were never able to meet Athena in person, but had very pleasant communication via phone, texting, and email. We did meet Bo, who gave us a tour of the place and was very friendly with a lot of tips for things to see and do in the area. Both of them told us to call them any time if we needed anything.
Overall, it was a nice place at a great location with very helpful and friendly owners. We look forward to returning in the future!
