About Beth Galdieri

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

Beth Galdieri purchased this villa in 2012

Why Beth Galdieri chose North Park

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 fabulous, beautiful, comfortable and 'cool' accommodations where people could relax, enjoy the Park, the Zoo, the many restaurants- all within the context of an authentic, local San Diego experience

What makes this villa unique

This building is thought to have been owned a century ago by an historic 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.

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at the Villa Barajas! We stayed in a larger unit last summer next door to this unit. We came this time expecting top notch amenities and certainly were NOT disappointed. Everything is top of the line in all of the units in this building. I sent a photo of my granddaughter sleeping in the bedroom to my sister in Florida. My sister commented on the quality of the linens stating they looked, "so white and fluffy!" She said our granddaughter looked like she was sleeping on a cloud. Beth, Gail, and Kerry are amazing to work with! They get back to you quickly and are willing to help you with anything you need. I spoke to the lady who was in the unit next door and she told me that Gail had gotten her a large pot so she could make a big batch of soup!!! Gail was so gracious and bought us a bottle of wine when we couldn't get into the unit on time due to a problem with the previous guest (we got in by 4:30 only a half hour late.) I look forward to staying there again. It literally feels like a second home to us!! Excellent, excellent, excellent!!!

Amazing alternative to hotels

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely great value and service all the way around. The owners make checking in and out a breeze and are very attentive to any need you may have during your stay. This is an amazing alternative to 4 and 5 star hotels with all the comforts as if you were in your very own home. Walkable to the hip and happening area's of North Park. It just so happens that during my stay, a movie was being filmed at the intersection of Upas and 30th street and this great venue called "Underbelly". In addition to hip bars, restaurants and clubs all at your fingertips, one of the most amazing cafe's located on Upas is an absolute must called Cardamom which is owned by a lovely women who bakes every single delicious pastry, muffin, cookies and in addition serves breakfast and lunch and is just so part of the neighborhood feel you get when you stay at this property.

Close proximity to all major freeway's, beaches and attractions. I simply can not say enough bout this very well run and managed property offering a vacation alternative to your hum drum stay's at any major brand name hotel.

Nice place in quiet neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

A beautifully appointed apartment that provides everything you could need! Nicely upgraded with modern finishes -- really lovely bath and kitchen complete with a Front Load stacking washer and dryer. Great closet space as well with custom built ins. This unit is on the second floor backside of a two story building with a handful of other units. The only two story unit (I believe) in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by single family houses. There is a garage and two parking spaces off the alley that are first come, first serve which we found open all of the time and provided easy access to the unit -- and street parking is no problem either. Well lit with sensor lights by the garage and stairs. Nice communal patio for sitting out. The unit was very quiet. You could walk to a few coffee shops and restaurants as well as being close to the parks. It's got a fairly young, urban feel to the area. We found we wanted to spend more of our time by the beach but fairly easy on/off highways near there. Great place to stay especially if want/need to spend time in the city.

perfect for two

  • 5 of 5

My hubby and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this modern little suite. It is clean, well equipped, well designed, and the layout is great for its size. We felt extremely at home, enjoyed the neighbourhood, and I found it very easy to bus to and from downtown every day for my conference. Only wish we could have stayed longer, to explore a little more.

This was our first experience with VRBO, but we would definitely do it again. Kerry, Beth and Gail were all very helpful. I would highly recommend this unit to one or two people. Cozy for a couple :)

Villa Barajas review

  • of 5

Great property to stay at. Really close to great tourist attractions like the San Diego Zoo. Only negative thing I have to say about the place is the ant problem. Every morning I would wake up to ants grouped up on the kitchen counters and they would frequently throughout the day get in to the unit. Other than that I enjoyed the place.

Owner's Response: This happened once before during heat and drought -- Not a lot of ants, just a few on kitchen counter near the sink, seeking water. Relatively common in San Diego under these conditions. Rental manager had inspected the unit prior to arrival and there were no ants. We would have exterminated immediately (nontoxic), but if you don't tell us about something, we can't fix it. Glad this didn't diminish your enjoyment of the place!
