Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay here. At 2 floors up, on a hill, the view is great and if you like to see hummingbirds then you get about 20 at a time on the feeders at dusk. It's a 5 min walk to the San Diego Old Town and the train, bus and trolley centre is only the other side of Old Town. The apartment has everything for self catering which suited us as we had been on the road for 3 weeks and needed a break from restaurants every night, but there's plenty of choice for eating in Old Town. We got the bus to Mission Beach, and Pacific beach one day and bussed to San Diego Zoo the other, both on the $5 all day bus pass tickets. The owner was very helpful and we'd happily stay here again.

Bright, cheery stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay with easy access to San Diego. We enjoyed the breeze and the open air feel. Hummingbirds right out front are a delight. Randy met us when we got there and showed us around. There were three of us (my wife, college aged daughter and myself). We had plenty of room. It is a quick walk into Old Town where there is excellent food and history. There is a nice walk/hike right out of Old Town up to the Presidio with great views. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this condo for the Thanksgiving Holiday and had a fantastic time. The unit was clean and comfortable with everything we needed to make our visit pleasant. The view was awesome as the condo sits quite high on the hill. You could see Point Loma and all the city lights. Sunsets were beautiful from the front deck. And the hummingbirds came for the feeder by the dozens. Randy and June had baskets of blooming pansy's and even a small patch of grass on the back deck for our little dog. This worked out really well. we could just open the door when she needed to go out instead of walking her in the early morning. Thank's June and Randy for sharing your lovely home with us. We would love to come stay again.

Awesome place and great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Randy and June were great hosts, and their property was lovely. From being greeted each morning by buzzing hummingbirds to enjoying the sunset over the ocean and landing planes each evening, we felt like locals. Just a couple blocks from the Old Town trolley and train station, we easily transited downtown for the conference we were attending while also having Randy and June’s place in Old Town as an escape from the hustle and bustle of Gaslamp. Randy and June were in constant contact, and continually checked in on us to make sure we were enjoying their place and comfortable. They were very accommodating. The only negatives I would say are that (1) the place had no A/C, but a cross-breeze through the middle of the apartment helped cool it in the evenings and (2) the bathrooms were a bit small and outdated. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed Randy and June’s place. Thanks!

Great condo, Great location, gated community!

  • 5 of 5

June and Randy Andrews have a great condo/home to stay in at Old Town San Diego. A short walk to a convienience store. Short walk to resturants, bars, shopping and gift shops. The Old Town Trolley is also a great attraction we went on which is also within walking distance from the condo. Plus the condo is centrally located for other attractions such as the USS Midway, the San Diego Zoo, the Hornblower cruises on the bay, a Wild Animal park etc. Simply call Randy when you know what time you will arrive and he will meet you there with keys and an opener to put in your car for the gate. He will go over anything you need to know about the condo. Randy has a sheet of paper that tells you how to get to the grocery store, where bars and resturants are located. They complex has a whirlpool and a pool but we didnot use those. The condo has 2 bdrms and 2 baths, living room, dining room, kitchen, washer & dryer. It has a deck overlooking the bay, the airport, Point Loma. That deck has 3 hummingbird feeders and believe me they are busy. The back deck has a grill if you choose to grill your own burgers or steaks. There is no A/C but it wasn't required. There are plenty of windows to open and plenty of fans. The condo is on the third level so you get a decent breeze. I was a little worried about no A/C but we really didn't need it. You have to remember that Randy and June live in the condo from time to time so they have some clothes there. Some in the closets and some in dressers but you do have room for your clothes. It is not like a hotel room with empty closets and dressers. They have essentials for you to use. Laundry soap, dish soap, sugar etc. Plus the condo is pet friendly. I'm not sure if there is any restrictions on size of pet or how many as we didn't have a pet. You would need to ask. The back deck has a grass area for a dog to do its business. June is quick on returning your damage deposit too. Once they cleaned after we left she quickly did the refund of deposit to my credit card account. I told Randy and June that if we get back to the area we would definatly rent this condo again. I would recommend this condo any time. Mike from Grain Valley, Mo.
