The perfect location for exploring San Diego

  • 5 of 5

Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood above Mission Bay, the location is perfect for exploring all that San Diego has to offer, and it's just minutes to the beach by car. Dave was a wonderful host. The apartment was very roomy, very comfortable. I would definitely recommend this home! Thank you for a great stay!

Comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

The rental is exactly as pictured. Very comfortable, felt like home. Enough linens and pillows for 4 people, two TVs and a nice little kitchenette. Aaron the property manager was very quick and responsive and David the property owner was extremely kind and generous. I couldn't think of a better way to spend our week in San Diego. Thanks guys!

Just what I thought it would be!

  • 5 of 5

My kids and I came to San Diego for a family vacation and did all the great family things there...SeaWorld, Legoland, USS Midway, Oldtown, Gaslamp District, and the weather was perfect for the beach.

Dave's rental was perfect for us. It was so nice to have a "home" to go to after a full day of activities. I loved being able to prepare meals, BBQ some chicken, and even just make some coffee without waking the kids.

The place was clean, had everything we needed right down to the beach towels and boogie boards. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice, affordable vacation rental.

Great location and great property

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with this property. Dave was extremely gracious and accommodating. We had to arrive late and he called in advance to get us the details we'd need, left a light on, etc. The property was very clean and comfortable and convenient. Although quite small, the kitchen is well-stocked and the whole unit feels quite private. We had one or two VERY MINOR issues that the property manager is already working on. Overall, no complaints. The location is really great. It is close to Mission Park and the freeway. Just about everything you'd want to see/visit is a quick car ride away. We had a very nice stay and will consider staying here again.

Mission Bay Suite

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this suite for 6 nights. It was clean and comfy. Dave the owner is such a sweet man and very helpful! This studio was the perfect size for our family of four (son 6 daughter 3 months).

There were boogie boards, a bbq and nice outdoor seating for your morning cup of coffee or nightly glass of wine. The french doors off the patio are great to open up wide and let the fresh air in. Love that there are no flying bugs in SD. The bed was comfy and we even had a travel playpen for the baby. You are getting a deal staying here, you'll pay way more for a hotel.

The only negative I would have to say is the small kitchen, not much counter space. But it does have all your basic necessities.

We would recommend this place to anyone that wants to stay in Mission Bay.

I would recommend posting a picture of the bedroom, so people know there is another bed not just the futon.

Pictures don't do it justice...

  • 4 of 5

This place worked out great for my family (Parents and 2 kids). The kitchen being down the hall from the living area worked out really well as we could move around after the kids went to sleep. I have also never rented a property that was kept SO CLEAN! For a neat freak like myself, this was nice to see! Great location! The property is right off the I-5 highway so it was REALLY convenient to everywhere we went. Also, only one exit away from Sea World... The only reason why I left 4 stars instead of 5 is that we had some electrical issues surrounding the bedroom heater - so it was a little cold in the bedroom but if you aren't there in the winter, it shouldn't be a problem. Other than that, Dave was a super nice guy and went out of his way for us. If we ever had a question, he always answered it promptly.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful stay. David reached out to me by phone and greeted us promptly. The place was very clean and had a lot of extras that we weren't expecting (shade umbrella, lots of small appliances, etc.). There was plenty of room for a family of 4. Close to everything that we had planned. I don't think we could have asked for anything more!
