Beach Retreat is close to the action, but far enough to get a good nights rest.

Perfect Place Exceeded Our Expectations
We would give a 10-star review of Molly's place if we could. This rental had everything promised and more. Molly thought of everything her guests could want and provided it, including pantry necessities, a welcome basket of snacks, very detailed instructions and helpful suggestions for places to visit and eat, comfortable beds, pillows and furniture and a well-stocked kitchen. Molly was incredibly responsive and accommodating. This location was also ideal -- close to the beach, shopping, and restaurants but in a quiet, safe, clean neighborhood. We have stayed at many home rentals in the U.S. and abroad, and this place stands out as among the best because it lived up to everything promised and exceeded our expectations. When we return to San Diego, we will be sure to rent from Molly again. She demonstrated a commitment to ensuring that her guests have a positive experience.
What impressed me the most is the host Molly. She's efficient, detailed, and welcoming. I had a lot of questions about the property and she took the time to answer all my questions pre-purchase and post-purchase. The unit feels clean and perfect for our young family. Will be sure to stay with Molly when we visit San Diego. Thanks Molly!
Thank you for your great review!
Enjoyed every minute of it!
We spent three nights at Beach Alley Townhouse and enjoyed every minute of it!
HOST: Molly was an excellent host that responded promptly to our messages when we had them and ensured we had everything we needed! She was friendly and only stopped by to drop something off when we requested it shortly after arrival.
HOME: The property itself was well stocked with everything you could need; plenty of pillows, comfortable bedding, good water pressure in the shower ~ the list goes on. Initially we expected the evenings to be louder with the location being near some other townhouses/apartment style buildings, but surprisingly every single night was quiet and we were even there on a weekend! Bedrooms were BIG with lots of space to hang your clothes or layout your stuff. Fans and bedroom AC units worked great and kept us cool.
LOCATION: The location in PB is also good if you want access to groceries, restaurants and night spots! Beach wasn't far at all and using the Bird Scooters and Lime Bikes made it a fun ride! We would love to come back and will soon enough!
Clean and comfortable
Great location, close to everything! Beds are comfortable and kitchen amenities are adequate. The area felt very safe too. Grocery store is just a few blocks away.
The weather apparently was unusually hot and humid during our stay. There isn't any AC to cool the place down and sadly, just opening the windows didn't exactly do the trick either. Several windows were missing screens too.
We spent most of our time exploring the beautiful area...Pacific & Mission Beaches, LA Jolla, The Gaslamp District, Coronado, and the zoo in Balboa Park. Therefore, we didn't have much time for television. However, there isn't any cable service here, only Netflix and Sling TV. Again, not an issue for us.
The only really confusing thing about this property is all the remotes. It seemed that ALL of the lights and ceiling fans had to be turned on and off via a remote instead of a regular light switch. They tried to label all of the remotes, but because there were SO many remotes, (some were located in a bowl with the TV remotes) you had to look at all of them to try to find the correct one for any given light or fan. What's wrong with regular light switches? Keep it simple!
Overall, I would recommend this place to others, and I would not hesitate to stay here again.
Thank you for your review. We actually have the handyman in all week doing upgrades. The fans that had the incredibly confusing remotes have been replaced and we are going to install AC in early Spring. We have also added a few decoration touches to make the home more homey :)
Charming place and great location.
We enjoyed our stay here as we played typical tourists in San Diego. Everything was so close and easy to get to. The local restaurants that were recommended were great. Everything we needed was provided in terms of the kitchen, bikes, linens, washer&dryer and bathroom items. There were a few small issues that we brought to the owner's attention but nothing that impacted our stay negatively. Thank you for a peaceful,family stay.
