Perfect Getaway - Great Location

I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at this wonderful home. This trip was a reunion for some girlfriends that were kindergarten friends from the early 1940's. The home was comfortable, convenient, clean and a fantastic place to just hang out and catch up. Thank you for giving us the perfect home for a bunch of old ladies to gather in.

Very comfortable with beautiful floors and functional kitchen. We had six adults and ample space for everyone to crash after a day at the beach with the dogs. Backyard is a paradise to grill and spent quite a lot of time on the roof top deck in the evenings. No better place to stay with dogs in OB!

Amazing OB Rental

Spent a long weekend with friends at this beach house and it was just amazing! Kitchen is so well stocked that we were able to cook all our own meals. Bikes provided made it nice to ride around town in. Totally pet and family family! Great owners! Mary was really on top of it and easy to get a hold of. Backyard is a great size and it makes it enjoyable for bqqing and hanging out outside. Can't wait to come back!

Wonderful Beach House

Wow! Just spent a wonderful four days at this Beach House. The location is convenient walking to great restaurants and shopping. All of the bedrooms are equally nice which is important if it's a group of adults. The decor is IKEA clean,bright and comfy. Plenty of seating inside and out. The house is stocked with games, books, 3TV's and bikes. The dishwasher was tricky but a quick call to Mary and it was fixed over the phone even though she did offer to pop over! Forgot to mention it backs onto a wonderful bike/walking path which stretches for miles.

I am very happy that we did not see the older review before we rented. We found this clean and well stocked home to be charming, very well located (right off the biking/walking trail), and comfortable - with none of the issues experienced by the previous renter. The new owner was very accommodating and responsive. The kitchen was well stocked. The dishwasher was a bit difficult to start, but I called Mary and she walked me through the process. After that, I had no issues. I think that the place must have undergone a lot of changes since these new owners took over in December. It was bright, fresh and had everything we needed for our 5 girlfriend get-away. We loved the location: not far from Ocean Beach (by foot), near Old Town and Balboa Park. We loved the upper deck with a 180 view of the San Diego River. All in all a fun place to stay. We give it high marks and would rent there again if our travels took us to San Diego.
