Awesome as Usual!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time the Petite Diamond. It was just as predicted from our previous stays, perfect. Patti is wonderful to deal with and is always prompt in her replies. We loved the new bed, microwave, and dishwasher! We cook all of our own meals here as they have everything that is needed. We use the bus system to get to places to ride our bikes. The apt is clean,, excellent wifi, great beach stuff (which we used), awesome grill, just a super place to stay! We will be back again!

Great Experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

As first time VRBO users, we were very pleased with the entire experience. Petite Diamond was a great location for us. A 3 min bike ride got us to the amazing Pacific Beach and Boardwalk. Many great restaurants, bars and coffee shops... highly recommend the Turquoise- coffee shop during the day/ wine bar in the evening, all within a short walk. We loved the relaxed, friendly atmosphere of the area.

Patti was vey professional with our booking and our unit fit our needs perfectly. Clean and quiet with all the amenities.

Our only issue was that the two bikes provided were in need of upgrading, but we rented other ones for cheap !!

Overall, we would recommend this unit for couples looking for a quiet, great comfortable stay!!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for my Mom and myself. It was her first visit to San Diego and she was ready to stay. The kitchen was well stocked we even made some bars and home made pizza. It is a short walk to the beach which we took advantage of, so many people out walking. We would definitely stay again. Thank you for such a wonderful place to stay.

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week long stay at this unit. The pictures show the unit exactly as it is. The place was spotless, well equipped, and very clean! The garage was a huge plus since the weather was so nice there were a lot of cars on the street. They provide everything you need for a trip to the beach which is a short walk away. We only stay at VRBO's when we go on vacation and this one is right at the top. Wifi is great, bed is comfortable, and patio is wonderful. We cook all of our meals so we were pleased with the kitchen amenities. It is extremely comfortable and relaxing. It is a quiet neighborhood and even though you are the middle unit it is still very private.

Excellent Choice!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in February. This unit is attached to two other units but is very quiet and private. It is located in a quiet neighborhood but is walking distance to the beach, restaurants and an incredible coffee shop right around the corner. We had no concerns or problem parking on the street but it was an added bonus to have the garage available. The unit was spotless and comfortable. We received our security deposit within two weeks after our stay. I would much rather have a security deposit held than be forced to pay insurance which is required in many other rentals. I would absolutely stay here again during future trips to San Diego.
