Good news! This property has an incredible OCEANFRONT view (as advertised)! It is conveniently located for one to enjoy all of San Diego County!
Bad news! It was, at one time, a beautiful home. Now it is a run down dowager. We have rented properties through VRBO & Homeaway for 20+ years and have NEVER found a property in DEPLORABLE condition. It was necessary to notify the manager of its condition within 24 hours of our arrival so that we would not be held responsible for its condition upon our departure. Below are examples of the unacceptable conditions we faced upon our arrival for a two week vacation.
Bathrooms: cabinet doors were sagging, one sink would not drain, leftover & used toiletries and filth were in bathroom vanities, shower tiles and glass needed cleaning, bath mats and floors were dirty, downstairs shower head was clogged, towel bars sagged, only two wash cloths were provided.
Kitchen: vent fan for gas range did not function, pots and pans were in poor condition, floor and rugs were dirty, only one trash bag was available, edge of granite counter was broken and lying on the window sill.
Living space: carpets had not been vacuumed, windows were stuck in open or closed positions, worn out love seat was covered with a bed sheet, throw pillows were stained and dirty, door frame above sliding door leaked when it rained, linens were stored in disarray and smelled musty, we replaced at least 6 burned out light bulbs.
Outside deck: two chairs had torn seats, umbrella was broken and lying on the ground, deck paint was peeling unattractive.
You will be pleased to stay here if you only care about the view and location. If you are wanting a clean, beautiful accommodation don't book this house, only the view matches the website photos! Perhaps the housekeepers need some supervision. It is truly a shame to allow a beautiful house to become so rundown. One wonders if the owner is aware of its condition.
