Guestbook comments from the owner

The rental was conveniently located to restaurants, shopping and fabulous art galleries. It is also close to Torrey Pines where my husband and son played golf. The condo was very neat, clean and fully equipped with whatever we needed. Terrie was delightful and addressed an air conditioning problem immediately. I would definitely recommend this condo to my friends. It was nice having a place to park our car.

We can't say enough about our recent stay at the "Getaway" and our host Terrie. There are so many thoughtful touches throughout the apartment that will make you feel right at home. Thank you Terrie!

Love! Love!

What a great gem this rental is! My family (husband and 2 kids- 9 and 11) stayed here for a week over thanksgiving break. The house was well equipped for everything we needed, wanted, and more! The owners have thought of everything - games, towels, beach wagon, boogie boards, etc. I would stay here again and again! The owners were very helpful and available should we need anything during our stay and very accommodating.

The location could not be better - everything you need is right outside your door - and a short walk (3 blocks) to the beach!

5-stars for sure!!!

Very clean, nicely kept.

  • 5 of 5

We love staying here. Terrie always goes above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. She even changed the batteries in one of the toys she has stocked, when my son asked why it didn't work. Very sweet lady! The place is emaculate and very cozy. We have 3 kids and they all love how close this property is to the beach! Excellent location, and great accommodations! Thank you Terrie, we will be back!

Perfect place! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for my family of four. Along with the great location and cleanliness, the owners have thought of all the details for a great vacation. It has air conditioning as well. Terrie included all the beach equipment you need for your family. Terrie is very easy to communicate with and makes sure your stay is comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

This is without a doubt the best holiday rental we have ever stayed in. The standard of everything provided was excellent and the service from Terrie was brilliant. The description was very accurate but it was the attention to detail which made it exceptional. Terrie had thought of everything...... The beach equipment and towels for example - not cheap tacky towels but really luxurious and soft. The cool box - on wheels which could hold drink and food for a family of four without any issue was great. The kitchen utensils - everything was there. Her communication was excellent and very felt that we were very well looked after throughout our stay. I hope we get another opportunity to book this oasis and if you are lucky enough to be able to book it I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Great location, airy, spacious, bright, comfortable, and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

Terrie is a wonderful host. She seems to have thought of everything. She is very nice, welcoming and helpful. The apt has a beautiful terrace with a bbq that we enjoyed often. And the garage is stocked with all the details you might need while travelling with kids: beach chairs, bodyboards, sand toys, coolers and even a very comfotable cart which helped us carry all that stuff to and from the beach.

I've rented out many places before. The combination of great location, cozy comfort and great host make this one my best experience yet. I would not hesitate to recommend it and I will surely return.
