Guestbook comments from the manager

Our trip to San Diego was awesome! First of all, it's way cooler here than in Phoenix and way more beautiful. I saw your place on tripadvisor. Love watching the fireworks from Sea World on your deck. And you and John are very very sweet. It felt like we were visiting a family member. Thanks fo much for the hospitality.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very helpful and accommodating. They made you feel right at home. We have stayed at several rentals, and it was nice to have the staples all supplied. There was no need to run out and buy necessities like coffee and toilet paper. The owners also recommended several local restaurants, all of which were good. The location is not in a touristy area, but is located very close to I-5. This made driving to all areas very convenient. We would stay again. Thank you Kathy and John.

Great place, great location

  • 4 of 5

Wonderfully cozy in a nice neighborhood. Two blocks off the "I" but could barely hear the traffic. Convenient location, easy access to downtown. Kathy and her husband (sorry, can't recall his name) were very nice. Only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is the construction crew working on the property early in the morning. Otherwise, 5 stars, no brainer. If we come back to San Diego, we'll try to book this again.

Amazing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Well.... Absolutely amazing holiday staying with Kathy and John, they couldn't do enough for us and always responsed to anything we asked for.

Their family was also very welcoming and we loved joining them to watch the Super Bowl.

The studio is great value for money and Kathy stocked our fridge with a range of drinks.

You need a car here I recommend dirt cheap car rental excellent price especially if you are under 25. Kathy helped us get used to the roads and sat passenger when we first drove.

The studio had everything you needed including all toiletries just amazing.

No review would come close to explaining how wonderful, kind and helpful this couple were during our stay. I have never been to any hotel or rented any apartment that have been this great and welcoming.

The appartment is in a great location and easily accessible to I5 (main route to LA).

Beautiful scenery and excellent weather!!

We will be back very soon!!

Lots of Love to you both

Rosie and Sam (England)
