                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          James, Thank you in turn for choosing UHVR (Uptown Hillcrest Vacation Rental) as your home while in Sunny San Diego.

                                                          It was okay.I wouldn't go back

                                                          Jonniece D.

                                                          The place looks exactly like the pictures. It was very clean and convenient for local stores. I loved the kitchen appliances and utensils. I enjoyed cooking in the kitchen. There were ants that I noticed the second day there. I had to call because the kitchen sink disposal was not working properly so I tried to fix it and cut up my hand. But they did eventually come out to fix it. The Wi-Fi did not work the first couple days so I've called many times and was NEVER able to get through to him. So I emailed and he eventually responded a couple days into our stay. It should be all better for the next person.

                                                          Frances M.Chicago

                                                          The property was very comfortable and provided all the comforts of home. Parking was definitely a challenge.

                                                          Literally a HomeAway

                                                          Kevin M.

                                                          We walked in and it was like walking into a home away from home. I imagine this place is what the founders were thinking when they created HomeAway. We had everything we could need. And the host was amazing! He provided recommendations of places to go around town. Ask about the speakeasy in the neighborhood. Really Cool!

                                                          Cute and private in a perfect location!

                                                          April S.

                                                          This place was exactly what we needed. Clean, private and in a great Hillcrest location! We would definitely come back :)

                                                          Great spot near the activity

                                                          Jeff L.

                                                          Everything was clean. Great spot in Hillcrest. In the middle of everything. Liked the layout. Enough room for me or one other person. Only problem was parking. It was hard to find a spot on the street.
