Great house, great location. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Overall enjoyed the stay, I love the neighborhood and walking distance to the beach. The layout of the house is great for two couples as bedrooms are the same size and each have their own bathroom (versus many rentals which have a clear "parents" and "kids" room). Having two garage parking spaces was also really great, as this neighborhood can be difficult to find parking.

The owners were super responsive and provided thorough information ahead of the stay.

My only negative comment, not on the owners or the house specifically, but the kitchen was pretty sparsely stocked with "essentials"-- there was some kind of cooking spray, but no regular olive oil, for example. I'm sure this fluctuates over time as guests buy and leave different items, I guess I'd just suggest taking a better look than I did before grocery shopping so you know what you need!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Even with a 6 year old and a 4 year old it was only an 11 minute walk to the beach. Not having to drive to the beach and try to park was terrific. And the house has a garage that goes back to the alley, so again you don't have to worry about trying to find a parking space on the street. The house is modern, updated, and comfortable.

Ocean Beach House

  • 5 of 5

The beach house was perfect for us. Having 4 grandchildren and being close to the amusement parks was great. When we weren't at the parks just walking to the beach was perfect. The kids loved the boggie boards and sand toys came in really handy. Walking to coffee in the morning and watching all the dogs at dog beach the kids loved!!! We would love to come back but us the Grandparents need to rest we are very tired from going to three amusement parks!

Nice House in Nice Location

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time we rented this house. It is really nice, has everything you need. It's very close to the beach and some really good restaurants. The fire pit out front is a great feature. The only down side this visit was a backed up kitchen sink that happened Saturday night. We were not able to use the kitchen on Mother's Day so had to eat out for breakfast and dinner. The plumber did not show up, I guess because it was Mother's Day? We left early Monday...I took one star off due to our added costs of eating out twice, when we had planned to grill at home. I still would recommend this house, and would rent it again if the opportunity arises.

Owner's Response: Apologies for the stopped up sink! My plumber arrived Monday afternoon and resolved the blockage. Apparently a pot of cooked rice had been put down the kitchen disposal but hadn't been able to make it through the pipe. The rice subsequently swelled up and formed a solid blockage. We're asking all of our future guests to be careful putting food down the kitchen drain.

Decent property marred by airport noise, worn mattress and missing amenities

  • 2 of 5

We chose this property because it was dog friendly and near the Ocean Beach dog beach (which we enjoyed). Unfortunately Ocean Beach is located under the flight path of San Diego's busy airport and from 6 AM to midnight your ability to enjoy the nice patio or just relax and watch TV is interrupted every few minutes. The king mattress needed replacement, and the house wasn't sufficiently equipped with some of the basics, such as paper napkins and Kleenex. The area homeless, although essentially harmless, favor this beach area. We left a day early, unwilling to suffer another noisy and uncomfortable night. Next time I visit San Diego I will choose an area other than Ocean Beach, and hopefully the owners will address the shortcomings noted for future renters that do not mind the noise and grunge of Ocean Beach.
