nice place, but noisy

  • 4 of 5

This place is very nice. I arrived at 1am after a 20 hour flight and was unable to get in for an hour as i was given the wrong door code, and no one was answering their phone to resolve it until VRBO finally found and called the owner who answered...thank god. They did refund me the first night's rent for that.

The main thing to be aware of though is that this house is the bottom floor of a duplex, and you can hear the people above very loudly and clearly.

If you are a heavy sleeper and live in an apartment and are used to problem.

However, I did have a good time here overall as the place itself is nice, and I made some great friends with the people who stayed above me the second week of my stay, so hence 4 stars.

I would say if you are noise sensitive, it's a 2-3 star place, if not, it's 5 star, really nice.

Owner was as helpful as he could possibly be, given the door code issues and the reality of the thin ceiling.

great views for sure!

  • 5 of 5

The home has large windows and an open concept which made it feel like a huge space. The view of the airport runway and ocean was very relaxing. Even though it was right next to the airport, the noise wasn't too bad at all. We traveled with our 14 month old son and he took naps and slept just fine. The beds in both rooms were VERY comfy with lots of pillows. The air conditioning in the 2nd bedroom gave off a musty smell and we notified maintenance but because we arrived on a Saturday, they didn't really get back to us until Monday. It was fine though because we ended up just not turning on the air conditioning on in that room but it just got a little hot at night. Close to Balboa Park, San Diego Zoo, grocery stores, and shopping. Overall, I would definitely come back!

comfy.. close to the fun, beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

at first i was suprised being so close to airport thinking it would be annoying, but it became one of our evening rituals watching planes. the lights from Coronado were beautiful. within minutes from great vibes and food, definately worth it!

we had neighbors upstairs but that didn't hinder a thing.. and when door was closed we couldn't hear a thing from outside.

great home accommodations. comfy beds and thought of all the little things.

thanks for a great stay@!

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations, and we feel the price was quite fair, considering all you get for your money. The kitchen was very recently updated with fresh paint and new counter tops. All the indoor and outdoor furniture (especially the cozy round daybed), was extremely comfortable, new, and clean. The sunsets and panoramic view of the airport and harbor are unforgettable. We enjoyed morning coffee and evening happy hour under the shady patio cover every day of our stay... this was the highlight of our trip. The kitchen was very equipped and necessary essentials are conveniently provided. We wanted to leisurely enjoy the last morning of our stay and the hosts were happy to accommodate by allowing us a little extra time on site, at no additional charge. Once we vacated, I realized I left some camera equipment behind. It was kindly shipped to us, at their expense. We would definitely rent this apartment again and have already passed on the listing to friends that were looking for accommodations in the area.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words Devlyn. We hear from many guests how much they enjoy relaxing on the patio with coffee in the morning or drinks in the evening and taking in the view. It never gets old.
