About Catherine

My husband and I met in the San Francisco Bay area. We moved to San Diego prior to our marriage and started our family here. We eventually moved back to Northern California to be closer to family but still enjoy visiting San Diego for extended vacations. We purchased this condo as a vacation home for us and we take several trips throughout the year back to San Diego. When not using our vacation home we rent it out to other vacationers, corporate travelers and college students who require more than hotel accommodations for their stay in Southern California.

Catherine purchased this condo in 2011

Why Catherine chose Grantville

We chose this property because of it's close proximity to everything San Diego has to offer. It is less then 10 miles to everything you would want to visit. We chose the complex because of the resort style amenities. The three pools, tennis courts, volleyball court, gym and picnic areas are nice to have.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Being a first time flip key user this worked out so well for me. Our trip had us in the downtown area and it was great because we could get to where we were going in 15 minuets. Also only 15 minuets or so to sea world. It was clean and safe and so nice to come back to after a long day. The owners were great and so easy to work with. I would definitely choose to stay again on another trip.

Cozy Condo in Mission Valley - Centrally Located
average rating of 4.0 based on 6 reviews

Very basic no thrills apt , with decent pools and hot tub

  • 4 of 5

I very rarely write reviews but because the reviews that I read really helped me out when I was looking for an vrbo I figured I would pay it forward.

First of all the host Catherine was very nice and a pleasure to deal with. We called her about the Tv not having more than like 4 channels, and she immediately arranged with the cable company to put on more channels. We were very appreciative of that.

The pictures on the website is fairly accurate however I will tell you it is really a 1 bedroom converted in to a two bedroom. Because of this it gets warm in the apt as the room in the front blocks the air flow. The building and development is very old like 47 years, and the hallway has a terrible moldy smell that doesn't go away. The condo it's self is very clean and has all you need to enjoy your stay. Linens , sheets , and towels all very clean.

The condo is in a good location, and the people that live there seemed nice.

I hope this helps,

Property is in very good condition,well located and the sports facilities are a plus.

  • 4 of 5

Wanted to give this property a five star review but because one of the full beds was extremely lumpy and the kitchen in dire need of microwavable cooking pots it was not possible.On the other hand Catherine(owner) responded very quickly to our phone calls and was greatly helpful and expedient in correcting certain maintenance issues when we first arrived.Overall we were very pleased with the property and would gladly return and recommend it to friends and family.We wish Catherine much success.

Nice place but watch out for extras

  • 3 of 5

The pictures are accurate. It's an older place but it worked fine for me. FYI: There's no dining room table, only some seats at the counter. My main issue was she only allows for a small fixed cost for electricity if you stay for a month. This was stated in the lease agreement. So, I knew it going in, but how much electricity do I get for this small amount? Beats me...

I stayed there from middle of August to early November 2015 - some of the hottest months of the year. The first electrical bill was FAR more than what was covered. And she told me about the first outrageous electricity bill well after there was anything I could do about it. So, I immediately cut back on using the AC and used the overhead fan more. That's another thing - there's very little air movement in the place. There are 2 sliding glass doors, so you would think there would be some good cross breezes. But not the way the place is laid out. To her credit, she did forgive the overage on the first bill since part of the month was not my responsibility. But she did whack me for the next month.

Big question: would I stay there again? If it's in the hot months of the year and I'm staying for a month or longer - no - because of this limited amount of electricity that's covered by the rent. I still give it 3 stars b/c the place was fine and in a good location. It's just that this extra charge was very annoying and arbitrary. Again - how much electricity do you get for this small fixed amount? I don't know...

Owner's Response: In response to the electricity bill: The $50 per month limit we cover is based on the average monthly electricity bill our guests have been using. In fact, most guests don't even reach the $50 limit. Our monthly guests are given a big discount for booking longer stays therefore we cannot make any price adjustments for any overages.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo is just like it is in the pictures. It's cozy and cute. The condo had everything we needed from cookware to towels and linens. The location was very convenient. We stayed for a week over the Christmas/New Year holiday. We had a great time and had no problems. I would definitely recommend Catherine's condo!
