Hidden away

  • 4 of 5

A bit tricky to find, but called the owner who helped a lot. Very nice to have the garage available, as the on street parking was not good. Easy to get to places, San Diego Zoo very close. Clean, and fairly comfortable, the bed & pillows were fine. Would have liked a more comfortable couch for sitting ( a futon). Would also like more glassware & spoons--we had sufficient for our needs. A hook on the back of the bathroom door would be nice also. Great Mexican bakery & small grocery store just a 3 minute walk away. On a bus line, but no information given. I would recommend it to anyone.

Great ambiance

  • 4 of 5

As described, the grounds are lovely, the location is convenient, the apartment space is fine for two adults. Being on the first floor was a real plus; we walked right out onto one of the patios where we spent time each day. Ron and Sue were pleasant and helpful.

We were three adults and I wouldn't recommend this unit for three adults (we didn't see other units). Booking it for three was my mistake because everything else was so wonderful I really wanted to stay here.

This is our second time staying here and we loved it as much as the first time. It is in the convenient and safe Golden Hill neighborhood. I would recommend to anyone who is visiting San Diego.

Cute little apartment in a GREAT location

  • 4 of 5

I spent 3 nights in this cutie and liked it. It was in the perfect spot for all my activities: Balboa Park and Coronado. The first day I was in La Jolla, which was a bit of a hike but no big deal. The apartment comes with access to a private garage, however, heed the owners' warning that the garage is meant for a small car. I had a Volkswagen Jetta as my rental and it fit, but nothing bigger than that. If you are a person that needs some yoga to work out the kinks of travelling, Ginseng Yoga is wonderful an less than a 10 minute drive from the apartment. Wifi is strong and bandwidth is plenty to stream over.

The only heads up that I would give regarding the accommodations is the shower. I'm 5'8" and fit ok under the shower head, however, if you are any taller than that, you might need to duck down to get in the water. The head is maybe set at about 5'10".

Owners were kind and professional. I would absolutely rent from them again.

Easy, Simple and Refreshing

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this property and its nice patios. Our 20 month old daughter had fun smelling the flowers. We also liked that it was dog friendly, even though our little dog didn't quite adjust well and the neighbor definitely let know when we got back. (Sorry!) It has a doggy door if you are comfortable with letting your dog out into an enclosed space while you're gone. Ours would have just been an even more nervous wreck with the other little dog running along side the other side of the fence.

Really nice that it had a garage and so many places within walking distance, including the dog friendly coffee shop, 15 minutes to Sea World or the beach.

The owners were nice, gave clear instructions, left a nice book of local places and didn't bother us during our short stay.

Definitely recommend it again! :-)

Retired professor. We travel internationally & have two Bichon's. Love to walk on the waterfront and eat the best fresh fish at Mitch's Seafood which is located at the Sport fishing landing. Balboa Park & the Zoo are favorites; Park has the Prado Restaurant which has great happy hour drinks & food; Zoo has Albert's Tree Restaurant which many do not know about; it is breezy & has an African motif.
