Our journey.

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in San Diego for one week following a tour around California. Our first time in San Diego and we loved it. Terry's place was lovely although we would have liked to make more use of the outside but never did.
The apartment was just right for the three of us, 4 people would have been a real squeeze. I would however like to suggest a new sofa bed as I found it uncomfortable. The air con was perfect. Loved the security of the garage.
The apartment was local for our travel needs and contained all amenities as advertised.
San Diego was beautiful.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
We lived in San Diego in the past and wanted a location close to everything. We had never rented a VRBO and were a little nervous. Terry's place was perfect. It had everything we needed to be comfortable during our stay. The bakery and market three doors down are awesome.

Garden Retreat

  • 4 of 5
Very nice clean and modern condo with all the amenities needed. Landlord was very helpful and extremely accommodating. I hate to say anything negative since overall it was a very nice stay.The only negatives are that the bed was a bit on the soft side and many planes go overhead. The aircraft noise is mostly bothersome at night

Cozy, but needs a few little improvements.

  • 3 of 5
We were looking for a quiet home away from home place to stay during our daughter's wedding week. This was a clean, updated apartment. The accommodations were comfortable. However, there were some things that would have made it more comfortable. The bed had a very worn, soft mattress. With two people in the bed, the lighter of the two rolls towards the other person. We had ants come into the bathroom then migrate to the bedroom and finally the kitchen. We asked for ant spray and had to spray for them. Our neighbor in the unit across from us left their doors literally open all of the time so we could constantly hear them banging pots and pans and grinding coffee (we think) every morning. Even with our doors and windows closed we heard this noise until 10 PM at night when we were in the unit. There was also a little barking dog right outside our windows. With the windows closed and the heat pumps on for air conditioning we didn't hear the noise but then we couldn't get fresh air or listen to the local birds. So you have to pick what you want. The TV was large and nice and the place was spacious enough for two people. The couch was comfy but like the bed was well broken in. We did appreciate the coffee maker and refrigerator. The complimentary quarters for the washer and dryer were nice as well. There is a wonderful Mexican Bakery just steps from the apartment and the proximity to the city was perfect and made it easy to navigate downtown. The patio was nice to relax on with our morning coffee and the garage for our rental car was appreciated.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the spacious, clean, updated and cozy apartment and found the accommodations and couch comfortable. We were also happy to hear you enjoyed the fully equipped kitchen and complimentary quarters for the laundry. The peaceful and tropical ambiance of the patio is one of the favorites of all our guests, as is the central location and easy access to all of the San Diego fun. We appreciate the opportunity to address your noted concerns as well. We wish that you had informed us that the dog barking and sound from the neighbor’s apartment were disturbing you, as we would immediately have taken steps to remedy the situation and insure you were not disturbed further by these noises. We are surprised to read your concerns as we checked in with you several times during your stay, and the only concern you expressed were the ants. It is summer time and here in San Diego, ants can be a problem. If there is food left out on the counter, they can become a bit of a problem. As soon as you requested the ant spray we provided you with the ant spray. In our experience, any problems with ants is quickly eliminated with the ant spray, and we apologize that this did not eliminate the problem for you. Based on your feedback we employed more extensive efforts after your stay and the ant situation appears to be resolved. We have actually received many compliments on the comfortableness of the bed. The bed is new and many guests have asked the brand and where we purchased it, as they wanted to replicate this comfort in their own home. However, we do understand that everybody has personal likes and dislikes with regard mattresses. Insuring we provide a peaceful experience and a home away from home for our guests is most important to us. As owners of 10 different vacation rentals, we have a plethora of positive reviews regarding the peaceful, safe, secure and comfortable experience of our guests. We take our reviews very seriously and immediately address any concerns voiced through guest feedback as we now have with your constructive feedback. We appreciate you taking the time to provide us with both your positive and constructive feedback and are happy that overall you enjoyed your experience during your visit at our humble abode.

Just like Home

  • 5 of 5
This was our home for a week as we transitioned to our new life in San Diego. This was perfect for me, the kids and our pets. We felt very safe and comfortable walking the dogs around the neighborhood at any hour of the day. This property had all the comforts of home, laundry room, kitchen and relaxation spot. Definitely recommend this for anyone, it is located very close to all freeways making it very easy to get around. Most important features were the security and the friendliness of the other vacationers. Great cafés, restaurants, market and salon a few feet away. Terry was wonderful, helping when needed. Thank you to Kate and Terry for making our experience to San Diego a very nice one. Property was very clean and extremely well maintained.
