About Beth Galdieri

We love homes, vacations, people, and customer service. Making people happy in beautiful environments is our 'thing.'

Beth Galdieri purchased this villa in 2012

Why Beth Galdieri chose San Diego County

When we saw this building, with its old world charm and quaint sophistication- we knew that we had to own it, renovate it- and then provide fabulous, beautiful, comfortable and 'cool' accommodations where people could relax, enjoy the Park, the Zoo, the many restaurants- all within the context of an authentic, local San Diego experience

What makes this villa unique

This building is thought to have been owned a century ago by an historic church nearby and resided in by church members or out of town visitors. It is a beautiful building and stands out as regal yet simple. This combination of simplicity and beauty attracted us.

Efficient but noisy

  • 3 of 5

The property is beautiful. Everything is efficiently located, making excellent use of the space. Close to downtown San Diego. Thankfully the weather was beautiful since we couldn't figure out the ac. Open windows allowed for a nice breeze but also made for noisy mornings and evenings when all the neighborhood dogs would decide to bark in unison for hours on end.

Clean and in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was the first air bnb experience, overall there were no real complaints. The space was very clean and in a great location. Only issues we had with the place was with finding parking in the back, that being said we were able to find free parking on the front street within a block or so.

Nice property in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our stay at the condo. It had everything we needed and was well located for walking to restaurants, parks, shopping, etc. We lived like locals for a month and walked everywhere. Public transportation was also available and very convenient. The owners were responsive and helpful when needed.

Nice amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed staying in this one bdrm modern suite. This upstairs unit was nice and bright with plenty of windows to get the cross breezes going through all four sides of the suite. Kitchen was well appointed for cooking and I loved the Keurig!

I really appreciated the modern decor and fixtures. The washer/dryer was so convenient and easy to use. What I also liked is that it was very quiet! The villa is close to restaurants and bars, yet super quiet neighbors.

The owners were very responsive to all my questions and requests, and easy to work with, they keep the yard and building clean!

I highly recommend the villa and this suite!

Wonderful Place and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in one of the flats for a few months over the summer. The place is perfect. I had to be away from my home unexpectedly and this was truly a home away from home. The owners are incredibly friendly and responsive. You can tell they have put much love into making these units a lovely place to stay. The ground are an oasis and there are so many restaurants and bars that are walking distance. As a San Diego native, this is probably the best location to stay in...away from tourists so you really get a feel for the San Diegan vibe.

Hip, clean, but tiny place

  • 3 of 5

We VRBO regularly, this condo was hip, clean, but very small. It was centrally located in a nice neighborhood, and was close to all that North Park has to offer. We did not have any problem with the parking concerning the available parking spaces off the alley way. That said, the bad, construction work started across the street at 6:00 am and the next door neighbors had a dog that barked and whined excessively. The other issues we had with this unit was we found the love seat to be very uncomfortable and hard to spend any amount of time on to watch TV etc. In addition, the bedroom needed a blackout shade because the blinds did not keep the morning sun from lighting up the whole room at 6:00 a.m.. I must say the unit was remodeled very nicely with quality appliances etc., however unfortunately they did not replace the single pane windows so the aforementioned noises came right into the unit. Lastly, if you have any issues with mobility be warned, this unit has several steep stairways to climb to get up to the unit.

Additional information about rental rates

Property Damage Protection A$74.89
Refundable Damage Deposit A$317.33
Check-out Cleaning A$126.93
Tax Rate 10.5%

Rates in table are representative and may vary based on number of occupants and specific dates requested. Rates and minimum stays during holidays and special events, such as Comic-Con, are typically higher. San Diego requires that occupancy taxes be charged for stays of fewer than 31 nights (10.5%). Cleaning fee, insurance and refundable security deposit are additional. Rates are subject to change until reservation has been confirmed.

For stays of one month or more, we charge for bi-weekly cleaning, in addition to a final cleaning fee. This will not be auto-generated via a reservation request -- We will need to revise the quote to include the biweekly cleanings.

Many people ask about this: We include a third party damage protection policy in our quotes, which is a nonrefundable fee. The policy protects you and us. With the policy in place, we're able to charge a very low cash security deposit that covers minor damages (such as stained towels or linens or broken plates). The insurance policy covers more significant accidental damages (for example, to furniture, floors, appliances, counters, walls, mirrors, plumbing fixtures, lamps, window glass and coverings, other elements). The insurance also enables you to recover your security deposit in the event of a qualified incident. VRBO offers you the option of either purchasing the insurance policy we've quoted or paying an additional refundable security deposit equal to the coverage/face value of the policy. For example, suppose we are charging $250 refundable security and you opt NOT to purchase the insurance (which in this example has a coverage value of $1,500) -- Your new combined REFUNDABLE security deposit would be $250 + $1500 = $1,750. Please note that the price of the insurance policy and the coverage amount are subject to change.
