Perfect location to access all of San Diego!

  • 5 of 5

This top floor of a two family house was the perfect amount of space for our family of 6. The porch was awesome, the view fantastic, the hot tub much appreciated! Easy to walk to local restaurants. We even walked to balboa park- although that hill is a killer! Few minor issues were solved very efficiently by the owners.

Not Enough Words To Describe This Wonderful Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time in this beautiful home. We travel quite a bit and for my birthday this year I picked this beautiful home to come back to. Just for some much needed R&R. The outdoor deck is simply AMAZING. And it is so relaxing just sitting out watching the planes land and take off. The home has more than you could ever desire. Most of the time when you are on vacation you don't want to cook. Not here! I looked forward to cooking in this wonderful kitchen. It is well equipped. The master bedroom or should I say retreat is so comfortable. Each time we stayed we ended up extending our stay a day or two to enjoy more time in the home. Dana, the Property Manager, is very accessible and made sure that we were well taken care of. We look forward to coming back!

Beautiful property with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! Everything was fully equipped and made our stay easy and felt like we were at home. The only thing I wasn’t expecting was being so close to the airport how loud the planes are. But the house is equipped with double windows and sound machines and the noise really quiets down through the middle of the night. Would definitely recommend staying here and would stay here again!

Owner's Response: Watching the planes is something so many guests enjoy and comment about. It's amazing how much the windows insulate the house and keep down the noise inside.

My family loved!!! This penthouse

  • 5 of 5

We were in SD for a conference that we turned into family vacay. Our first impression of the condo was a little apprehensive. The neighborhood was very urban and hilly. I was hoping to be able to walk more with my young kids.

But the second we walked in we were in Love! And will stay again. The view is incredible, entertaining and educational for my kiddos.

Grocery stores are close by and amazing. We loved lazy acres.

And everything is so close by car, we did the childrens museum, SD zoo, Natural history and science at balboa park, sea world, la jolla cove and beach, coronado island and we even mini golfed im del mar!

It was wonderful to come "home" every night and my kids didnt want to leave.

The property was well maintained, well planned out and clean. Very centrally located and the views were wonderful. The deck was the gathering area every morning for coffee and relaxing.
