Guestbook comments from the owner

Nice, very good sized house with everything you need all the way down to beach towels. Plenty of room for a couple and even the sofa is comfortable to sleep on. Fast internet. Centrally located to get to know the area around Balboa Park, 30th St. I'd stay here again.

Very comfortable with overhead fans and outdoor patio protected from the breeze. BBQ that we didn't use.

Very nice place. Very clean. Well decorated.

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was homey and close to everything.The owners were very responsive and accommodating.

About a half mile from balboa park, which had great trails, even my dog enjoyed running them (shes very picky about trails). It was a short 15 min drive to midway museum area. There was enough fenced in yard to where we could let our dog out to potty without worrying about her getting out or running into the road. The cottage was clean and well taken care of. The area with patio furniture was a perfect spot to sip our morning coffee.

Everything was well thought out, we didn't find ourselves needing anything else in the kitchen or linen wise. Overall, very cozy, will be back if we find ourselves in San Diego again.

Thank you for having us!

San Diego, CA

felt like we lived there

  • 5 of 5

we used to live in the area and were so happy to be back for a vacation. with this house, we felt as tho we lived there again which was really nice. we had all the comforts of home and the privacy we wanted. everything was clean and updated, we basically moved right in for the week. the towels, sheets, couch, bed, etc. were all in great condition and clean, and we felt very comfortable using everything. fyi for people who are picky about showers: the water temp is hard to control--either hot or chilly, no real inbetween, but did not pose a problem to our stay whatsoever. also, the house is next to a pretty sketchy house (which is typical for neighborhoods in san diego and not really a big deal--but might be off-putting for some), but the owners did a great job of maintaining privacy and putting up fencing on that side to improve the view:) we felt very safe in the area, were in a great location to walk to some of our favorite places, and enjoyed using the little outdoor space/grill--also having laundry was a plus! of note, there is a pack n play in the closet for those of you traveling with babies! we weren't aware of that when we booked and it's def super helpful to know that:) we would 100% book this place again and hope to return soon!

Great San Diego home

  • 5 of 5

If you never been to San Diego and you are staying at a home or other VRBO, this one is nicely kept. It is in the back of the main house, but it is fenced off nicely from the main house. The neighborhood is okay. What I mean is, there are a lot of pockets in San Diego that super nice and super ugly. This home is part of the super nice. Sometimes you get a full street of super nice, and other times just a couple houses. This one is just a couple houses. With that being said, it is in walking distance to great restaurants and a park is nearby if you have a little one.

The owners are very nice too. They were very responsive to our needs. My wife and I are always cold and needed an extra blanket that they brought promptly. I would definitely recommend this place.

Wonderful Place

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time in San Diego and loved the location of this house to all the things going on. Was either in walking distance or a cheap $5.50 Uber ride to anywhere. I really liked that there was an Apple TV hooked up so we could stream our own movies to watch. The place was stocked with every type of glass needed from wine, to beer, to coffee. The home was very clean and easy to get in and out of. I'd stay here again.
