Perfect vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family spent a week together in San Diego and this house was perfect for an amazing vacation. The location is awesome. Some people in our party had a car, but we did not and we didn't need one at all. The beach and bay are only blocks away. There is a Ralph's grocery store about two blocks away and many restaurants, bars and shops all within an easy walk. Also a bus stop a few blocks away made for an easy trip to La Jolla, other areas were easily accessible by bus too.The house has two parking spaces around back, street parking looked hard to come by.

The house was very clean and everything was in working order, plenty of pots and pans in kitchen and plenty of towels etc. Ryan was very accommodating when we showed up early with our little kids after a cross country plane ride and welcomed us in for a quick tour and to leave our bags as they finished up readying the house.

My kids loved the "triangle room" with sloped ceilings, My In laws enjoyed the large airy Master suite with large bathroom and we enjoyed having the balcony room with sunlight coming in and access to roof top hot tub and (sea world) fireworks viewing. One bedroom is downstairs and has an attached full bath, my sister in law found that one helpful for tending to her baby. The upstairs 3 bedrooms share one bathroom (4th upstairs room is master with private bath) only thing that would have made the house more comfortable for our party with small kids would have been at least one bathroom with a bath tub, the three full bathrooms each have a shower.

The back yard area is beautiful and relaxing, lots of seating areas, gas BBQ and shallow pool made it tempting to stay at the house all day. The rooms are large and even with a larger party we never felt cramped or short on space. This house is great, Ryan is an accommodating host and I hope to be able to go back to stay again someday, next time two weeks!

Beautiful if not better than the pictures. Spacious and well furnished, perfect and private location

  • 5 of 5

Ryan was an exceptional host. Very responsive, and accommodating to all our needs. He is right next door, so very accessible, but is also discrete and respectful of tenants privacy. The house is stunning. Looks better than the pictures and is so spacious and well layed out. We were four parties and had more room than we needed, with ample bathrooms. We requested heating of the swimming pool in late March for 25 dollars a day and it was well worth it. The kids lived in it and the parents had the pleasure and security of knowing they were safe in three feet of water. The hot tub on the roof is romantic along with the tables on the roof deck to watch the sunset. Beds are super comfortable and there are more than enough towels for every purpose. The kitchen is huge, well stocked. We cooked many a delicious meal. Most of all, leave your car behind and enjoy either never leaving this corner of paradise or walking to the beach or the bay or many shops, restos, or yoga studios that are nearby and make up the lively, health conscious, vibrant community of this corner of San Diego. This house is a true and rare find. Feels like home, and we don't want to leave!

Our stay was amazing and we really enjoyed the location and style of this home. Would definitely recommend this to anyone needing a home this size in a perfect location. Ryan was easy to get ahold of for anything questions we had and was very hospitable to our group. 5 stars for sure!
