Pleasant Place in North Park, San Diego

  • 5 of 5

Great spot and well equipped. Easy access to local food and shops plus Balboa Park. A simple drive or Uber to downtown. We enjoyed the patio and lounge chairs and cooked many meals in the well stocked kitchen. The bed was comfortable and bathroom shower jets were a plus too!

Thanks for sharing!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 weeks in this charming bungalow. Rick is easy to work with and very accommodating. The bungalow is nicely furnished and equipped, and very comfortable as well as being close to everything San Diego has to offer. Many shops and restaurants within walking distance. The neighborhood is safe, and endlessly fascinating with the concentration of well cared for craftsman bungalows. Street parking is easy and always available in this neighborhood. We would happily return.

Charming Cottage in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Ever drive by those craftsman cottages in San Diego's North Park and wonder what they are like? this is your chance to stay in one and find out. Cottage has be restored to its former glory - with today's amenities. And a beautiful large outdoor space which is rare in this town. Host made sure that we had everything we needed. You are walking distance from a great coffee shop and highly rated restaurants, and Balboa Park.

A great property makes for a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the craftsman cottage for one week in January. Many thoughtful touches made our stay quite comfortable. They included extra toiletries, shampoo, conditioner, snacks, and bottles of water. The place is immaculate with ample parking and clear instructions for checking in and out. The owner called and stopped by to make sure everything was OK. As mentioned, the neighborhood is historic with a fun combination of delicious eateries and activities. It was a great stay in spite of the unusually cool, wet weather.

Charming home in a quite neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Home is equipped with everything you need. The sleeper sofa had been replaced since the photos were taken and fits better than the leather one. We are big coffee drinkers, so we enjoyed the large 14 cup coffee pot and full size packets of a nice coffee blend.

Would have liked some light window coverings in bath and dining areas. San Diego was rather wet during the beginning of our stay and the wood gate had swelled and was almost impossible to open and close. Maybe it could be shaved off a bit to allow for this expansion.

Overall, the property was fantastic and would stay here again.
