We had a wonderful time during our stay. We enjoyed the early morning walks on Grandview beach and then headed over to Moonlight beach just a couple miles away in the afternoon. There really are a lot of stair to get down to the beach but I enjoyed the stair master. Lol. The house itself was clean and very comfortable. We had everything we needed. I have to say that the backyard is like a little piece of heaven. Very secluded and shaded and just awesome. We came from Phoenix so having the nice weather and being able to be outdoors at any time of day was awesome. It is obvious that Donelle takes pride in this home. It is well taken care of and very welcoming.

One thing, we had a hard time finding it because it is tucked behind another house. I think the fact that when we arrived there was so many cars parked on the street from the beach goers that it was hard to see the driveway. It is definitely secluded which we loved! All in all, I would give this a top rating. It is close to everything.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Audra! I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay! The backyard is one of my favorite parts of the house, the seclusion at the end of the private driveway makes it feel on it's own.

Great home, close to everything

  • 5 of 5

The home was awesome! It was in a great location, just about a 5 min walk to the beach, if not less. A lot of cute shops and restaurants nearby as well. San Diego Zoo and Safari Park only about 30-40 min away. The home's decor was very nice. Loved having the bikes and chairs available for use in the garage. The backyard was perfect was sitting outside and enjoying time with family. Overall, it was perfect and we can't wait to stay again!

Had a great time here. If you are looking at photos and deciding, this property has LOTS of room, a great yard, and great location, EASY walk to the beach, super mellow beach town still not Rodeo Drive'd into glitzy excess. Short walk or bike ride to great restaurants. Close drive to LaJolla and San Diego attractions. The bikes and boogie boards are a great touch. Overall, BETTER than expected and the whole family loved it.

this was a great fit for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the home on Grandview. Walking to the beach made it so special, and the donut shop around the corner with the best doughnuts in the world didn't hurt either! The house was very comfortable and fit us well. It was SO NICE to have boogie boards, umbrella, chairs, and bikes available - everything was thought through and was so appreciated! Our only complaints (and they are small!) was that the propane ran out right away, the toilet paper ran out quickly (probably bcse. there were so many of us!); other than that it was pretty perfect! Thank you, Donelle, for letting us stay in this home, it was fantastic! We are hoping to return here next year!

Great place to get together!

  • 5 of 5

This place is in a local location yet is quiet and private. You can walk a half mile at most to get coffee and 'small' groceries, and the beach is literally just over the hill. Some reviews mentioned stairs to the beach, and there are stairs here, but they are totally manageable. We had 4 children under 5 with us and went to the beach daily. Also the owner is responsive and approachable. Loved our stay!

Beach rental

  • 4 of 5

We just returned home from 5 days at Donelle's beach rental. The property is very comfortable and has everything you might need for a terrific stay. You can walk to a lovely beach within 5 minutes or drive to several beaches that are also close by. Our dogs loved the artificial grass in the back yard and it makes clean up a breeze. We will definitely return back to this home whenever we can.
