I would book again in a heartbeat!

This was the best experience I have ever had while traveling on business. Staying here was truly the closest thing to a home away from home and it is due largely to the hospitality that the homeowners themselves bring to the experience. They are the warmest hosts to be found and not only was it a pleasure to stay here but also a pleasure to interact with them. In addition, the property is gorgeous and the neighborhood has to be one of the most quiet in all the city. A lot of effort goes into maintaining such a relaxing atmosphere and it shows. One of my favorite things to do there was to sit outside on the patio, read, and enjoy the garden, especially the sounds of the fountain. It was the perfect setup to allow the stress of the day melt off. And of course let's not forget the indoor accommodations as well. All was extremely clean, private and quiet. Very modern, luxurious, and plenty of space in the suite for a person to hunker down for an extended stay. The owners are constantly making improvements inside and out. They even hung some pictures of mine for me in the suite to give it a personal feel. It doesn't get any better than this folks and I will not think twice to make arrangements again if I am lucky enough to return to San Diego. My only regret is I never played them in Parcheesi! :)

Lovely, Peaceful and Serene

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for six weeks while finishing out my career, retiring, relocating and in between houses. The pictures and description are spot-on accurate. Well located in University City with easy access to the 52 and 5, as well as La Jolla and UTC. Convenient access to the 805, 15 and 56, as well as Mission Bay, Fasion Valley, Sorrento Valley and Carmel Valley. Private entrance through two gates on the side. Access to the suite is through sliding glass doors. Impeccably maintained property. Beautifully landscaped. Well appointed large two-room suite plus bathroom. Very private and quiet. I very occasionally heard the husband/wife owners and their guests, 'though they indicated they never heard me at all. Squeaky clean. Light, bright and airy. On-site laundry facilities. Extremely comfortable bed -- better than any hotel I've ever been in! I brought my own pillows, and minus that, the pillows there probably wouldn't have been enough for me (I'm a pillow hog). Cable with lots of channels and Internet service. There is an adequate size refrigerator, but no kitchenette. No cooking is permitted, 'though I purchased (and donated to the cause) an electric kettle to have hot water for tea. No serious washing of dishes is permitted. Prepared foods in disposable containers (such as salads or sandwiches) work great. Take out also works great. I found it perfect for one person. It could work for two, such as a couple. Note the bed is queen size and the bathroom is a one-man bathroom. I would certainly highly recommend these accommodations for a single low maintenance working professional -- worked perfectly for me!

Best Stay Ever!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this lovely home over the holidays from Dec 24/14 to Jan 12/15, and I have every intention of coming back. Polly and Casey could not have been nicer and more accommodating. They are lovely, lovely people, and they thought of everything one would need for a stay. My very large suite with it's own private entrance was modern, impeccably clean, private & so peaceful. The bed very comfortable and the linens soft and fresh. The backyard was a private tranquil oasis in itself with it's lovely foliage that I had full access to. I loved that I could make fresh coffee at my leisure and sit out their in the morning sun uninterrupted. Whatever I needed, they were able to provide. It's obvious they take great pride in their home and in what they provide for their guests. For me it was like home away from home only better because I was on vacation. I would not hesitate for a minute in recommending a stay here. Thank you Polly and Casey for a wonderful 19 days! Gina Roman, Toronto Canada

Un-professional Service

  • 1 of 5

Apartment is much smaller than it appears in pictures. There is no oven, only two range top burners. Which is NOT stated in the amenities available. A club house with a cabana, gym, and pool were promised with the vacation rental; but owners retracted the use of it after the rental was paid in full. The property was well maintained, and has a beautiful garden; but the apartment was in need of a deep cleaning. There was hair present in the bathroom, and all over as well as soap scum in the shower. Also the kitchen cupboards smelled of mold and had food crumbs present. All the dishes needed to be re-washed as they were dirty. The owners do not provide adequate privacy, they have workers on the property all day starting early all the way to 6:00PM. We feel that during our stay the owners entered the apartment when we were not there, to close windows ,or to turn off fans. They are very particular about the use of the laundry facilities as it is shared with two other units besides this apartment. They are also very particular about the use of the BBQ, and outdoor lights. It's very dark without them(they removed them from the fixtures). Lastly the apartment is very hot in the summer, and cold in the winter. In this unit there is no control for air conditioning or heat. The owners give you one small fan, and one small heater. They don't allow windows to be open to cool off the apartment when gone.They constantly complained about noise coming from our apartment, during cooking, opening and closing of cabinets. In this unit there is a severe ant and termite problem. At one point ants covered the entire kitchen counter and back splash. When addressed to owners they took no action. The owners also gave out our personal information to solicitors( against hippa law, and tenant regulation). Everything in the area in hard to get too. There is one road to get in and out of this location. I Wouldn't recommend this property. It looks beautiful on the outside but, once you're in you'll want to get out. I only recommend this for a 1-2 night stay.

Owner's Response: Please read all of the prior glowing reviews. After over 10 years of renting out this beautiful apartment, we finally got our first bad review. It is cleaned impeccably between tenants. In addition to deep cleaning, we had to repaint the entire apartment and buy new blinds when they moved out. Our apartment is just 3 blocks from the nearest freeway and a mile from 2 others- it could not possibly be more convenient. We personally invite you to come stay and make beautiful memories in this warm and cozy apartment and find out why so many of our clients from all over the world return every year and write positive reviews every time.

The BEST home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

I wholeheartedly recommend this property. If you're looking for an escape more comfortable than your own home, this is the place. Nestled in suburbia, but close to everything San Diego has to offer, it was a quiet retreat for this Navy sailor. Casey and Polly will go out of their way to accommodate all needs, and they even invited me to join them for some delicious meals. Casey is an amazing cook, and he will share with you some pretty neat stories. Proceed with caution, though, when they ask you to play a friendly game of Parcheesi... Polly will dominate everybody! You've been warned. All in all, it was a great experience, and I'm extremely grateful for having met such warm and wonderful people!
