Perfect stay for our family.

  • 4 of 5

We booked a trip to San Diego (sort of last minute) for myself, my husband and our 18 month old.

Urban Oasis was a perfect spot for us. It's very true to the pictures in the ad. It is a lovely little home with a little private backyard which is nice when you want to have a drink or meal outside. We travelled with our toddler and this place was fully equipped. Pack and Play, high chair, baby cups, plates, etc. That was so incredibly helpful as we didn't have to lug it on the plane.

The place has everything you need - we ate at home when we could and they have all of the kitchen appliances you would want/need.

I have to admit, we didn't know San Diego other than through research so when we arrived we were unsure whether or not it was a good neighbourhood, etc. However, it's a very safe neighbourhood. Neighbours were friendly, etc. You do need a car to get around SD in general though. For instance, you could walk to gaslamp quarter but it's a bit of a hike...

All in all, a great place to rent especially with a toddler!

Wonderful stay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks in October 2014, with our (then) 1 year old.

We loved staying here. The property was really well appointed - it had everything we needed and more. Michelle very kindly ensured that we had a high chair and travel cot (pack and play) for our little one, and stair gate from the deck down to the garden.

Accomodation is all on one level, which for us, was great with a toddler. And we made great use of the private deck and garden.

Location & Neighbourhood: We walked (often) to the Gas lamp area and were an easy 10 - 15 minute drive from the main attractions and beach. On street parking (close to the property) was never an issue and we never felt unsafe.

It was our first time booking through HomeAway and were a little apprehensive but I can honestly say In addition to the property, what made our holiday a pleasure was dealing with Michelle. She couldn't have been more helpful: great communication beforehand, answering all my questions. She arranged for groceries to be in the property for our arrival and also facilitated a late check out. All of which was REALLY appreciated (particularly as we were travelling with a little one).

Very charming place

Cute house- lovely interior. We were in town for a conference at the convention center-a 30-45 minute walk or $6 Uber.

Wonderful stay in the heart of San Diego

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this cozy home! The host was extremely accommodating with our arrival and departure times and the house was just as pictured/described. It had everything we needed for our short stay in San Diego and more! The house was extremely comfortable and clean. The area was perfect for being close to downtown and all San Diego tourist areas. We had a car available and parking at night was never an issue. We could also walk a short amount of time to downtown, restaurants, coffee shops, etc. if needed. We never felt unsafe at all in this neighborhood even with our 1.5 yr old! Would have loved to stay longer and will definitely stay here again when visiting San Diego!

Owner's Response: We appreciate when guests leave feedback as it helps other travelers feel more confident in their choice. The home is located so close to all of San Diego's top attractions!. There is free street parking. We also gave this family early and late checkouts as we understand how it is traveling with small children. We always try to accommodate requests like this when we can. We also provide pak-n-play, high chair, beach toys etc to help the lil ones have fun too!

Fine house, lacking in service, area not so good

  • 2 of 5

The house was fine with enough space for the four of us. We received plenty of information on grocery stores, restaurants etc before arrival. Overall it was clean but when walking barefoot our footsoles became quickly very dirty. Also quite a few items were missing from the inventory list. The location is not so good (and we live in a big city, so we are used to the city life). A lot of homeless people camp out only a few blocks from the house which made the walk back from downtown not very comfortable even late afternoon with kids. Also a lot of houses in the area have watchdogs and barred windows. However it was nice to be not too far from downtown and the I5. The reason to subtract another star is that the owner has not responded to our emails of lacking inventory and dirty floor, but afterwards we did get a generic computergenerated email if we had any feedback at all. Finally another star is subtracted for the cleaner to arrive an hour early, which was rather annoying.

So to sum up, make up your mind if you want to stay in this area and be prepared for not very good and personal service from this letting Company once you have booked.

Owner's Response: We sincerely appreciate this guest's feedback and it helps us continue to improve.. Please know this is a wonderful home and is located close to all San Diego's top attractions. Please take the time to read other travelers review and how happy they are. The home is located just a few blocks from downtown, and there are homeless people in San Diego and they live close to the city center. But they are HARMLESS. There has NEVER been any issues at this home nor have guests ever been bothered. Other guests comment in their reviews how safe they felt and how they loved the area. We have many repeat guests also. This family is from Europe, and may not be used to the homeless people we have in the USA. It is sad, but please know, it's not an unsafe area. Regarding her comments that we didn't respond to her message regarding the floors and kitchen inventory...she sent if AFTER they checked out (not during their stay) and we did send an email asking for their full feedback (that was our reply she commented they received). We send a welcome email the day guests arrive asking guests to call our 24/7 maintenance line if there are any issues with cleaning or ANYTHING we can do to make their stay more enjoyable. They never contacted during their stay and didn't give us a chance to help out. Checkout some of our other reviews to see guests complement us on our communications and responsiveness. Our cleaning gal did arrive early that day (She was new) and that is not acceptable. We corrected that immediately so it doesn't happen again. We are sorry for that inconvenience. She didn't make them leave early, but it still was not polite for our team to show up early. We understand that travelers have different needs and expectations. While we truly strive to offer an exceptional experience start to end, it is inevitable that we may not meet every guest's standards and are disappointed we fell short of this family's expectations.

We loved our stay. The location was perfect and the home was wonderful. All instructions for checking in/out were easy to understand. I will be sure to recommend your place if we know of anyone visiting San Diego in the near future.
