The studio is exactly as it looks in the photos and is lovely, quiet, and fine. The accuracy issue is that the loft is only about 5 feet tall so, if you aren't aware like I was not aware, you will stand up at the top step of the ladder and bang your head on the ceiling. Also, I could not get any AT&T cell phone service and, thus, my idea of working inside in privacy was squashed. Last issue is minor but there is no place except the floor/edge to put the soap while using the shower.
Clean, quite, and just as the pictures looked!
Point Loma was perfect location for what we needed. Thank you for letting us stay at your place!
Unethical Practices -
Renters beware; I have rented from VRBO for over 15 years. I have never had an experience like this. If you’d like to have some friends over, don’t. Owner refuses to return our deposit and claims we had a party because we had friends come over to meet our 3 MONTH OLD daughter. Manual says: ''Any unsanctioned parties will result in the forfeiture your deposit." There was approximately 10 people including children, who all left BEFORE 5pm on a Saturday. If we were to have a "party" we would have had to hire help to manage noise. What a shakedown. I also have confirmed in writing we did not get a noise complaint (not surprising). One of the co-hosts even came over, was super friendly said hi, and made NO MENTION of us having a party. (Taking away our deposit for a ''party''? Very surprising).
So he is basing this off of Ring videos. Which is creepy. He says we had too many ins and outs of the place, but there is also no mention of how many ins and outs are allowed. Half of the videos are due to the fact that the studio is very hard to access and people couldn’t find the ONLY way to get in, which is via narrow spiral staircase. Do you know how much crap we have to bring for a baby? How many times we had to up and down?? Imagine carrying a baby up and down that? Were there other cameras? Not even going to ask because I was breastfeeding.
Either way, he’s trying to be fair because unfortunately in the past he's had to deal with dogs, smoking, and parties of 60+ people. Not sure what that has to do with us? I will be reaching out to VRBO that he’s holding deposits because of grudges from other renters. Owner is unprofessional. VERY good at responding before you check in, then terrible at being available afterwards when I wanted to chat. I’m not sure if he pretended not to know who I was? After I finally got a hold of him after texting, leaving voicemails, and messages in the VRBO inbox, he said he had already decided he wasn’t returning the deposit in advance. Why did you waste a week’s worth of my time? Our deposit is not being used to fix anything, there was no damage, noise complaint, extra trash, warning from the host when he showed up in person, nothing.
Such a dishonest practice. I should have known better since someone else mentioned deposit issues in their review.
Studio itself? It’s alright. Beware that the loft is less than 5 feet, so you have to crouch up there. There is also only a mini fridge, and no oven.
In a text message this guest admitted to having 20 people at our Studio on 2-21-2019, not more than 10 at the same time. This is a party. The space is studio. Her logic is because it was during the day it was not a party. This guest is well educated and understood fully our "No Party Rule". She choose to ignore the policy and have a party. After she was caught she sought to redefine the definition of "party". Now she is seeking revenge by giving us a bad review.
This puts the entire Vacation Home Rental Community at risk here in San Diego. The City of San Diego recently passed a law outlawing Vacation Home Rentals. HomeAway, VRBO, the local Vacation Home Community and others successfully over turned this law at an expense of more than $500,000. The number one complaint of those wanting to outlaw Vacation Home Rentals was "Parties". At presenct Vacation Home Rentals in San Diego are about 20% of the cost of Hotel Stays. This opens up San Diego to all not just the financially well healed. Not only does this put the Vacation Home Community at risk, it also puts any of the small businesses in San Diego at risk that exist because of tourism.
Quite and cozy! Looks just like the pictures. Great neighborhood and everyone around is very friendly.
