Just great

  • 5 of 5

At this location you definitely need a car but the view is spectacular and owners are very friendly. Just about a 30 minute drive from everything in San Diego and if you want to watch a beautiful sunset every night then you can get that from your balcony.

Absolutey Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property with breathtaking views... The property was much larger than expected the pictures do not do it justice.. Owners are some of the most genuinely kind people we have ever met and we are looking forward to an opportunity to enjoy this little piece of heaven atop a mountain again!!!

Our stay was perfect

  • 5 of 5

The property is about 40 minutes from downtown and 15 minutes from the eastern suburbs. It is in the mountains and the only way to get here is by car. The road up to the property curves through the mountains and it is dark at night but well worth the drive. Your balcony/patio overlooks the valley with the city in the distance. The two dogs are very friendly and in the morning you can see their two horses grazing in the small pasture. Hosts had a bottle of wine waiting for us and they even offered and drank a cold beer with us when we got there. They were available if we needed them but gave us plenty of privacy. Bathroom has plenty of room and water pressure, you have a huge walk in closet, a queen size bed, living room and small kitchenette with mini fridge, small counter top stove, coffee maker, microwave and toaster oven. We stayed their 5 days and had plenty of amenities. The apartment got very warm during the day but it was mid-July and the weather outside was in the high 90's. We would definitely love to stay here again and will be looking at availability here through next time we come to San Diego.

Quite, cool, relaxing summer escape.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful visit to the San Diego area staying on a private, quite, peaceful foothills property. Easy access to roadways leading into town, and the travel and stay with our dog was not a problem; there were beaches, restaurants, and stores that allowed well behaved dogs - our dog got along with the homeowners two dogs as well.

The one-bedroom private apt is clean and nicely decorated, located over the garage with sufficient kitchen amenities to prepare simple meals. The homeowners are a gracious/polite couple who made our stay truly wonderful.

PS: The Point Loma tide pools were awesome!

Relaxing Place with Excellent View and Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there four days for the Labor Day weekend. We thought the drive was going to be challenging since it was a bit out of city. Surprisingly, Jamul has changed quite a bit since we moved out of San Diego and it was actually fairly easy to get there, with good directions, of course.

The apartment is simple, and yet has everything. It is a one-bedroom apartment, but we were able to take our son and our dog with us. My son slept on a rollaway bed in the living room, that we rolled out from the closet at night.

The balcony has great view and we love spending time out there look out to the mountain and enjoy peace and quiet, especially in the morning. It also has beautiful sunset. The shower was great. Lots of hot water and good water pressure.

The owners, Annette and Robert were great hosts, with two friendly dogs. They were extremely nice and made themselves available for us. When we got there, there was wine on the living room table waiting for us.

We felt very welcomed, even though our dog was not the best guest ever. We definitely want to go back to visit again. It was such a great experience.
