Diamond in the Rough - As in Neighborhood

  • 3 of 5

This property has everything you would want in a rental house in one of the best cities to visit in the U.S. We are not strangers to San Diego and Point Loma in particular. Our daughter has lived in the community for a decade. It's close to the airport, the beach and the fabulous new Liberty Public Market. We enjoyed the pool and spa, large living space, spectacular view from the master deck and walking the neighborhood. There are several things everyone renting needs to be aware of and consider prior to renting:

#1: You are NOT welcomed in the neighborhood. That will become obvious when you pull into the quiet cul-de-sac because there are several large signs that tell you how unwelcome you are: "NEIGHBORHOODS ARE FOR NEIGHBORS NOT VACATION RENTALS."

#2: While the property is well maintained, there were a few glitches one would not expect in accommodations in this price range. The bed and bath linen is worn out; the wine refrigerator was not working; the master bathroom sinks were slow to drain; and the driveway requires a stunt driver to navigate (when backing out.)

#3: Although the house is built for entertaining, don't even consider it. It sleeps a lot of people but they are not really welcomed to stay. Just three cars are allowed in the driveway and entertaining is STRONGLY discouraged. This was a point of near harassment as we were reminded of this ground rule during our stay (and in the middle of our family event).

The stringent requirements are clearly based on prior experience at this or similar rentals but for our family, the whole scene had an unfriendly vibe. We rented to enjoy a special occasion with family and this detracted from the experience.

Apparently the neighbor on the property's left side is behind many of the vacation freedom restrictions. Some members of our family actually met this neighbor. After the cursing, which is just her way of communicating, she said we seemed nice (and quiet), kept the place peasant and were not a bother.

If you don't mind not-so-subtle intolerance of your presence at the vacation rental, go for it. Now that I know being a VACATION RENTER in the neighborhood is a bad thing, I doubt we would do it again. It was hurtful to our entire family. The same neighbor raising the fuss does NOT keep her property up at all, by the way, which is the biggest irony of all. I would not enjoy actually living next door to her.

Owner's Response: Fran. We are glad that you mentioned the finer qualities in the house in your review... "This property has everything you would want in a rental house in one of the best cities to visit in the U.S. We are not strangers to San Diego and Point Loma in particular. Our daughter has lived in the community for a decade. It's close to the airport, the beach and the fabulous new Liberty Public Market. We enjoyed the pool and spa, large living space, spectacular view from the master deck and walking the neighborhood." The issue with the "Neighbors resistance" to Vacation Rentals in San Diego is unfortunately rampant through out the entire City. To that end we do our best to notify potential renters in advance about the "entertaining restrictions". This is done for your sake as well as ours. It is our way to discourage large events, cars and party groups. Although your group was not of this description people do often times have agenda's and so we insist on full transparency before booking. If the "Neighborhood coalitions" have their way, there will very soon be a ban on all Vacation Rentals which will be a huge loss for Visitors from around the world, as well as to the City itself. We are in a current crisis mode with this issue and I apologize if you had to experience the effects of this disagreement. The attitude of our neighbors is not something that we can alter in anyway other than to screen to the best of our ability and continue to present respectful renters. The neighbor to the right has actually come over to us and apologized for her sign- saying that we have 99.9 % of our renters are wonderful and quiet and that she appreciates that. They are a lovely family with two young children. We have just purchased all new sheets and linens for our summer season and apologize for the slow leak in the sinks. The repair was completed immediately. We have managed this beautiful home for many many years as testified to in our multitude of excellent reviews. It is a high priority for us to walk the fine line between our renters having an A+ experience which is our goal, and doing everything we can so as to not have the entire industry shutdown. Hopefully the City vote will go in our favor and all neighborhood resistance will cease and we can then return to the days of old- prior to this up rise. Aside from these issues which I feel I have addressed, we are glad to have your confirmation that the house and it's accommodations are represented accurately.

Amazing stay in an AMAZING house!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 4 little kiddos (ages 8 to 4 mths) stayed in this beautiful house -- and we could not have been more pleased. The house is fully equipped, Susan and Bruce were helpful and responsive, and the pool and hot tub were amazing. The house is close to everything, but when you're there you have your own private oasis. It far exceeded our expectations -- the kids didn't want to leave! We will be back!

Everything about our stay at this property was amazing! Susan was super helpful and Bruce was brilliant on arrival and throughout our say-super responsive and gave us loads of help and advice! The property itself is beautiful - the location is great, the house is a great size and is full of everything you would need for your stay and the pool/spa and bbq areas were AMAZING! Our group (2 families with small kids) had a really really wonderful time and we will definitely be using this house for our future trips to gorgeous San Diego!

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed a week in this spacious, comfortable home for our Spring Break trip to San Diego. It was nice having a bedroom for each of our 3 children. I can't say enough how much we enjoyed the hot tub and the pool! We used it 6 out of the 7 days we were there! Close to many amenities and attractions. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone traveling to San Diego!
