GREAT PLACE FOR YOUNG FAMILY, BUT DIDN'T INCLUDE SOME BASICS

Great place for young family, but didn't include some basics
  • 4 of 5
My husband, 2.5 year old, and I spent a week at this lovely place. We’d recommend it with a small caveat.

We loved:

Location - We are big public transportation nerds, and love to explore a city using buses, subways, walking, trolley cars, etc. We were able to catch a bus from the airport, transfer to the 7 downtown, and arrive within a few blocks of the house. Easy as pie. Then we walked and bussed everywhere from the VRBO - North Park, University Heights and Normal Heights, Hillcrest, Balboa, zoo, downtown/waterfront, and various parks for our toddler -- all were very easy to reach via bus or walking. We got a Compass Card at the Albertson's (10 min walk away) and got a 4-day metro pass.

Privacy - We met one of the owners on our first morning and he was very friendly. He gave us some zoo discount tickets he had and was nice to chat with, and otherwise we didn't see him. We entered through the alley, so never had to access the (lovely) common yard if we didn't want to.

Size/layout - This is a nice sized two-bedroom apartment over a garage. The bedrooms are full-sized with comfy queen beds -- as depicted in the photos. The bathroom is large, though the shower bar was broken. We were able to hang out and talk at full volume after our toddler went to sleep. Great size for us. We also loved the breakfast bar.

Ambiance - There were birds singing outside, screens on windows for cross-breezes, ceiling fans in both bedrooms for circulating air, bamboo in front of some windows, territorial views, and a quiet neighborhood. It was so relaxing. The owners have done a great job of making the "feel" of the place so nice.

The one caveat about staying at this lovely place is that the house was did not include some things we consider basics: washcloths, toilet paper, paper towels, dishwasher detergent, garbage bags. Brian told me that they did not stock those items, and that renters like us generally just buy them, though to their great credit, they did drop off some supplies on the little front porch after we called to ask. We’d probably still rent this place again knowing we’d have to buy those things but I guess we’d factor that into cost, convenience, and arrival time (imagine arriving in the middle of the night with no TP!). Also, when we wiped the floor to clean up dropped food in the kitchen, the paper towel was black with dirt. Same with the bathroom. Surprising with such a large cleaning fee.

Overall, a wonderful place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback and it was a pleasure having you. We have recently changed our cleaning service and apparently there may have been a few issues. We will certainly assure this does not occur again. Cleanliness of the unit and our guest's overall comfort are our first priority. Vacation rental is different than a hotel in that consumable items are normally the responsibility of the tenant to supply. There are always enough basic items to get a guest started in the unit. No one would arrive in the middle of the night without TP! :-) We will endeavor to be sure that there is a adequate supply of items in the future. Glad you enjoyed the overall experience.

BALBOA PARK NEARBY

The unit, grounds and location relative to the city was excellent. Well furnished, spacious and comfortable, and the patio with jacuzzi and fire pit was perfect as well. Highly recommend for anyone that wishes to stay near Balboa Park and downtown.

BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY. GREAT LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
Property was beautiful. We took three year old son and he loved walking around the common area and looking at all the plants and butterflies. The inside of the rental was very clean and everything we need was included. It was also located 10 minutes from everything we wanted to visit. Would definitely stay here again. Property owner was also very helpful and quick to reply to any questions we had.

JUST AS ADVERTISED- GREAT LOCATION, LOTS OF LITTLE LUXURIES, AND VERY RESPECTFUL OWNERS

  • 5 of 5
My family just spent a week at the property, and it was exactly what we needed. It was the perfect amount of space for my husband and I and our 18 month old daughter. The location was awesome being so close to Balboa park. There is a great playground about a mile away at the edge of balboa park that we often walked to, and another morning we put our daughter in the backpack and hiked over to the museum of Natural History. It is a 15 minute drive to the beach and the airport, with great freeway access. There is even a grocery store 3 blocks away.
The house was really clean and was stocked with everything we needed. There are lots of great extras that you wouldn't expect from a rental home, like really nice furnishings, an ipod dock in the bedroom and all the extra movie channels on cable.
The owners live at the front of the property, but the rental is very private and we never felt any awkwardness. The outside area is shared with the owners, but they always made it available to us. One night we had some friends over for a bbq and we had a nice meal and then relaxed by the firepit. It was really cozy. The hot tub was also very private. The owners were really responsive to the questions i sent via email.
We would definitely recommend this property to other couples or small families. The location, comfort and value can't be beat.
