About Alik Perakh

Hi. My name is Vitali, or Alik for short. I have been 25 years old for 23 years now and was born in Siberia, but also lived in Israel 7 years. I've live in California of last 30+ years. I renovated, furnished, and decorated this unit with my own hands and deigned the landscaping and the other units.

Alik Perakh purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Alik Perakh chose San Diego

Golden Hill is the heart of San Diego. Quiet and pleasant, it is nevertheless right in the center and close to everything.

Bad Experience

  • 1 of 5

Staying here ruined by vacation completely. The house was not neat and the restroom was not kept clean. My friend who booked this place went based on the review on this website and did not do a good job researching.

Owner's Response: This review is anonymous and does not appear to be submitted by anyone who actually stayed there (yes, amazingly, the website allows this). We did not have anyone staying recently complain of any such nor say anything but good things. It appears to be either an attempt by a competitor to harm the competition or someone retaliating for a completely unrelated disagreement.

Clean, quiet house with a groovy style

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 people, all astronomy students/post-docs, for 4 days in Aliks 2br house with no problem (3 people in the queen size beds, 2 people on the futons and 1 in the couch). It did feel like 6 people might be the limit for this house though, unless you know each other very well! Towels and sheets were clean and the kitchen in great condition. Also the garage was perfect for two of our cars and we could easily find room on the street for the 3rd car.

Lovely Spacious Clean Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

4 of us from the UK stayed here for a few days in July, when we were travelling around California. The apartment is lovely, bright, well maintained and clean. The adjoining garage was a bonus. We did use the laundry facilities which were housed in an outhouse near the property. It was a great base to see the sights and nothing was too far away. i would highly recommend this accomodation.

Bachelor Trip!

  • 5 of 5

I took my best buds here for my bachelor party for a weekend of fishing and partying. We had the run of the upstairs/downstairs unit closest to the garage/alley. Plenty of room and rooms for 8 dudes. 2 bedrooms that are primarily used for the below unit and the adjacent studio also upstairs which we booked too. The 2 units can be separated with a door/lock system. Full amenities with both the studio and the 2bedroom. The place was immaculately clean. All the utilities and amenities were in perfect working order. There was a little hiccup with the bbq grill outside at the community area. The grate was broken and didn't get fixed during our stay. We ended up just cooking our fish on the pans. No biggie. It didn't impede our drinking ability. Very close to the Gaslamp if you were to walk it. Relative to one's sobriety level, of course. There are also lots of nearby food options as well as a couple of convenience stores/markets. Parking is available in the back, enough for 2 compacts in the garage and one f250 in the driveway. Lots of parking streetside as well. We did not utilize the washer/dryer for our 2day trip. Communication with Alik was pretty good. We took care of everything beforehand and he was very clear with instructions for the units. Overall, an amazing stay and we would definitely book again.

Great place and location!!!

  • 4 of 5

Pros-place in perfect location. Rental is well kept. Description is accurate. Garage fits two vehicles for renters. Place is very clean. I would recommend to friend.

Cons-owner advised rental had BBQ grill. However, grill looked unusable and horrendous even after owner was questioned about the grill. Slight inconvenience because I had to buy one while there. Neighbors adjacent to rental were very loud into early hours of the morning, due to leaving windows open all night because no AC is provided. Unable to get any local channels on TV with instructions provided. Remote control had no batteries.

Great Rental Near Gas Lamp

  • 4 of 5

I was tasked with planning a relaxed weekend away in celebration of my brothers upcoming wedding. We had several main needs. They were:

- Close to the Gaslamp district

- Nearby to Golden Hill Park (weekend of Tour De Fat)

- Large enough to sleep 7 people

- Fully functional kitchen

- More inexpensive than a hotel room

This rental accomplished all of our targeted goals. We even made friends with the renters in the unit directly above ours. Also, this rental is within walking distance to two very good food places (though they may look a bit "divish"). The liquor store on the south east corner has great Pizza and the mexican restaurant west of the rental has excellent food.

Alik was incredibly easy to work with in securing the rental. Our weekend was one none of us shall forget and we had a wonderful place to come back to after the days activities.
