It was clean, well furnished and totally awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved it! Perfect location and plenty of space for our whole family. Everything was perfect. I especially loved the personal touch of the welcome basket with goodies and wine. So nice and everything was clean and beautiful! We had a grand time and will look to you again when we travel to San Diego.

The house was amazing, especially contrasting it against booking 4 hotel rooms. We would do it again

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property, after careful consideration of other houses in the area (we were attending a Marine Graduation at MCRD, 15 minutes away), and hotels for out party of 15- 9 kids, 5 adults, and one Marine Graduate.

The house itself was in a comfortable family neighborhood. We didn't fear our safety, the neighbors were friendly, and it was easy to find with our GPS. The backyard, with children's playground toys, fruit trees and outdoor entertaining areas, was perfect. We utilized it often in our down time. It was great to have a fenced in yard for the kids to play outdoors and get some physical activity in after so many hours of sitting in a plane, sitting still for a ceremony, and riding in a car. Very beneficial for their age group.

We also loved the decor. It was comfortable, and much more relaxing than a stiff hotel room. The large open area allowed our group to eat and play games, as well as watch movies together. On the flip side, the bedrooms are far enough separated that each family felt comfortable at night.

We used the basement suite as well, using the whole property. It has the laundry facilities (how great to arrive home with no dirty laundry!), as well as a living room where some of those in school used for quiet study away from our large group.

The water was always hot for showers, the rooms very temperate. The linens fresh, and all areas were very clean. The views were nice out the back window, and on the upper back porch.

The directions were simple to follow and communication was prompt.

When we arrived we visited a nearby Costco and stocked the fridge and pantry with our weeks needs. Some are provided already. A lot was saved on our vacation budget by cooking our own meals.

Our favorite part was probably how at home we felt. Everything seemed of high quality, sturdy, not fragile. The thought put into making families with children comfortable was definitely apparent. High chair and booster seat, children's books and games, as well as kids movies were there, waiting to be played with, in addition to the outdoor area. It rained our first couple days there, but we were all just as content indoors.

If I were to return with my family again, we would all vote to rent the same property. It is located close to many beaches (the family favorite was Mission Beach), popular shopping venues, as well as the airport and the Marine Corps Recruit Depot.

To Kerri and John- thanks for all you have done to make it what it is.

It is our go to rental !!!

  • 5 of 5

Kerri was absolutely wonderful and so accommodating. We are a group that participates in the Susan G Komen 3Day Walk every year. We have stayed and rented different houses in the San Diego area for our team over the years. This is the one we have come back to again. The amenities are perfect for team. See you again for our 2017 walk. THANK YOU !!

Home was average...

  • 3 of 5

The family of 10 stayed in this home for 3 days and give it an average rating.

Kerry was very responsive but the home was missing some key ingredients that would have added to a positive experience:

* No A/C

* Back windows facing towards the bay did not have any screens.

* Front porch light did not work and guest house downstairs did not have lights for guesthouse door.

* Bathrooms were very small and guest bathroom toilet was tiny.

* Water pressure throughout the house was low.

* Sofa bed did not work so had to use an air mattress.

* Inside house lights were a low yellow color...just needs new bulbs.

* A broom or small hand vac would have been handy.

* Dining room chairs need new fabric/cushion.

This are a few minor items that can be done to improve the guest experience.

Thank you and hope all is well.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I would like to take this opportunity to clarify several of the items mentioned above: * Correct, there is no AC, just like it says in our listing. This is rarely an issue with mostly mild temps. and a bay breeze! * There are no screens on the west facing windows because we feel that they interfere with the view. We are lucky enough to live in a place with very few insects. We feel the occasional housefly is worth the unobstructed bay and sunset views! (We can make the screens available if a guest feels they're necessary). * The front porch light DOES work. It is on a motion sensor. *The water pressure is normal. *The toilets are a standard size. *The sofa bed was indeed damaged prior to this particular guests stay. We advised them in advance of this and provided extra airbeds. The sofa bed has now been replaced. *The lights are not all dim. They are equipped with dimmer switches. Turn up the switch and the light get brighter! * There is indeed both a full size broom and a hand broom as well as 2 or 3 dustpans provided. They're in kitchen and bedroom closets respectively. *The dining chairs have all been reupholstered. We want all of our guests to have a "five star" stay at our home and we do all we can to make this happen! Many reviews are of course, subjective and a matter of opinion. I felt the need to clarify items in this review because most of it is simply inaccurate, not opinion. In addition to providing inaccurate information in their review, the guests also chose to violate our rental agreement by bringing pets into the home (we only allow certified service animals with advanced notice). This translates into additional cleaning costs for me as the owner. I did not pass this cost on to the renter as a courtesy. They also did not follow the few simple items in our checkout procedure and left house unlocked and the door actually standing open. We love hosting and providing a comfortable, beautiful place for our guests to relax, have fun and make memories! We look forward to hosting many more happy travelers! Sincerely, Kerri
