Very nice home.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely home. We came during one of San Diego's busiest times (Comic Con)and the location was perfect. The house is just short ride to downtown. We utilized Lyft to drive us to and from Comic Con so we wouldn't have to stress about parking. There are grocery stores nearby and a nice back patio with a bbq. It was nice to come back, grill and relax away from the crowds. The home comes with everything you need, was charming and clean. We will definately be returning. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Very, very nice

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the casita a few times now and are never disappointed. It combines old word charm (vintage hardwood floors and architecture) and modern amenities (a modern equipped kitchen, wifi, 2 full baths, washer/dryer and air conditioning). An optional 3rd bedroom is available as well. The property is very clean and very well maintained. There is a charming back yard area that is great for entertaining (and a good gas grill too). The owners, Michael and Sue, are very thoughtful and accommodating. The listing description is accurate. The location is walkable ( about a mile or so) to all Adams avenue attractions such as Adams Avenue Antiques Row, numerous coffee shops, bistros and restaurants, an outstanding used book store (Adams Avenue Book Store, more like a library ) and plenty of other stuff.

The house was charming and wonderful. Two full bedrooms and baths. Extra sleeping area worked great for my nephew. Great location to the beach, to the zoo, to shopping and waterfront. Clean and had nice amenities like cozy backyard with grill and full kitchen with coffee maker. Would definitely stay here again. Deb

UCSD Graduation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely home for 4 days to attend our godson's graduation from UCSD. The house was very comfortable, clean and very welcoming. We loved the area and all the places that were very close for our needs. The backyard was a dream. It was cozy and very relaxing to just enjoy good laughs and great conversations. My son and daughter had their own rooms and were very comfortable. Great way to spend our time in San Diego for such a wonderful event. Would recommend others to stay here and enjoy a relaxing stay.

Charming home in an Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

I rented out this home for a 4 day weekend with my parents and boyfriend. The house was very clean and cute with a nice quiet neighborhood, yet in a very centralized location to the places we wanted to see. We also enjoyed sitting in the backyard that was cozy and charming. Other than a slight miscommunication getting the key into the house we were able to get everything sorted out and enjoyed our stay. The spare room with twin mattresses was also very useful for when my brother stayed with us for one night. We would definitely recommend others to stay here and would stay here again.

Charming home in a great neighborhood - really made our stay in San Diego perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this charming home - it truly felt like home away from home and made all our other activities planned for our San Diego trip (we attended a family wedding and celebrated a 50th wedding anniversary) more pleasant. Beds were super comfortable, house is small but laid out well and felt bigger. Made use of the outdoor space and the grill. All in all it was just wonderful!
