“Amazing Birthday Get-A-Way”
Reviewed 9 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I booked this rental as a surprise for hubby's birthday. It was a hit. We have found that we prefer vacation rentals to hotel rooms when available. This one didn't disappoint.

The home is located in a historic part of San Diego. Stately older homes with tree lined streets. We were very pleased to find many nice restaurants within walking distance. Approximately a half mile in each direction on flat streets. The owner provides a list of nearby restaurants in the room for you.

We were greeted by Catherine when we arrived with a hug. She is one of the nicest people either of us has ever met. We appreciated the fact that the rental process was so simple. No additional fees i.e., deposit, cleaning, etc. Straight forward quote and that is what we paid

The guest house is located in the backyard of the home. She provided us with a parking space and was there to greet us when we arrived. She gave us a tour of the areas available to us. Which consisted of an outside bed, jacuzzi, fire pit. lounge chairs and bbq grill. She left us a bottle of wine along with a bowl of snacks. Yogurt, muffins, cereal, milk and orange juice. All new and unopened. We couldn't have been more surprised. She provides a coffee maker and coffee. There are beach cruisers available for your use and plenty of beach going equipment. Apple TV is provided, which was a first time experience for us, which we enjoyed.

We indulged both nights in the jacuzzi. On our last evening we enjoyed the fire pit while sipping on cocktails. Our host made herself readily available if needed by phone and never intruded on our privacy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and should the opportunity arise, would definitely stay here again.

Liked best: The studio decor was so nice. Perfect for a romantic get-a-way. Complete with candles.
Liked least: The bed does not have a frame, sits on the floor, which fits the Bali vibe. It is low for someone with back issues.

My girlfriend and I both really liked the property. It was well maintained and the quality of the furniture and amenities were excellent. The bungalow is located behind the owner's house which is in a nice neighborhood. The owner had a little bit of everything stocked in the cupboards and fridge like a few boxes of cereal, milk orange juice, ice cream etc. all were unopened which is good. She also left a list of places to go to and eat in the area. The only thing that I didn't like about the rental, was that there was a mis-communication about when to pick up the keys to the place. Also, there was no shower head, only a bath tub with shower extension hose, so if youre tall like me, so that was a bit difficult. There is also a good possibility of encountering a few spiders just because it gets muggy in there if the doors are closed all day. All in all, it worked out in the end and we made the best of it. If you rent this place make sure you use the amazing fire pit and Jacuzzi!

“Lovely property... and owner... and jacuzzi!”

This property was perfect for our 3 night short stay in San Diego. It's not near the beach but is better placed for going out in the evening and not too far to drive to Mission Beach etc in the day. Really nicely decorated property, comfy bed, clean and well stocked (including the fridge!).
The real highlight is the garden - firepit and jacuzzi. Highly recommended!

The entire experience was fantastic. The location is great, the hot tub, the fire pit! Catherine was such a great hostess and she made the experience that much better. We will be back.

As you walk into the back yard to get to the bungalow, you are instantly wowed by the landscaping and unique outdoor structure. The door to the bungalow was open and it was eye candy where ever you looked. The bathroom is very large, a room for itself behind an ornate door. The floors in the entire place are marble or travertine tiles. The fridge was stocked with goodies for the next day and night. A great coffee brand was provided for your morning coffee, along with delicious muffins. The bedding was soft and high quality. Privacy in the back yard was paramount to Catherine, the host. We spent 4 nights in this delightful place and would do so again in a minute. It is an excellent place for short stay, we enjoyed the neighborhood as well. Long term? I would need a small closet where to put clothing, as one is not available and one has to leave clothing in suite case. Even a clothing shelf would help. No air conditioning, but fans are available and the night breeze does cool the place in no time. Because of this I would give it 4.5 stars out of 5.
