Great house

  • 5 of 5
We were 6 high school friends in our mid 70's who chose this house for a mini reunion. It was perfect in size and layout and beautifully restored. The location was good for our sightseeing trips to Coronado, Old Town and Pt. Loma. The owners were great to work with and we all agreed we'd choose this place again if coming to San Diego.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
I have been searching online for a decent vacation house a month before our trip. I can't seem to find the right one that my family would like. Then I came across this "White House" property in Golden Hill. I emailed the owner and she responded very very quick! Looking at the photos from the website (which they did a good job of posting enough pictures and accurate description of the place), I immediately thought I would like this place, but when we got there to check-in, we ALL loved it!!! This place is amazing! It has everything you need and more than we could ask for. The property was kept clean and well maintained. This house looks good in pictures, but looks better in person.

We were very pleased with our stay and will definitely go back and recomend to other people that are looking for place to stay in San Diego near almost everyting. We would wake up in the morning not wanting to go anywhere because we rather stay and enjoy more of what the house has to offer. It was too bad that we only stayed here for three nights.

Last but not the least, the owners were great. They were very helpful and provided everything we needed to make this trip relaxing and memorable. So many thanks to you!

Spacious historic beauty great owners 5+ stars

  • 5 of 5
First I want to say the pictures do not do this home justice at all, they should get someone out to show how large and beautiful the home really is.
Our Family of 9 came to San Diego to do all the touristy things, the home is in a great neighborhood, a block to the park, places to eat, a neighborhood market and bakery. Easy to get to the motorways very central location. I wish I could give more than 5 stars. The beds are super comfortable, everything you would ever need in the kitchen including a drawer full of spices and the little things that you don’t normally get, a TV in every room.
We were met on arrival by Athena she showed us the ins and outs of the home, and gave us some tips on a local drive to the Zoo, it took us less than 5 minutes to get there, had a lot of beach stuff too, we just never made it to the beach, barbequed and ate on the large deck in the backyard.
Our trip to San Diego exceeded our expectations, thanks to the owners who are very helpful and genuine we only wish our trip was longer. We will definitely come again, and highly recommend this home and owners. Thank you Athena and Bo.

Yes, I do need better pictures, thank you for mentioning how much better it looks in person. We are waiting for a break in reservations to get a professional out.

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
This is an excellent vacation rental! Owners are extremely helpful and accommodating. They offered many extras for us as we needed them for small children. House is upgraded and in amazing condition. Backyard and deck are great to sit outside in the beautiful San Diego weather. Lots of good stores and places to eat in short walking distance.
I would highly recommend this rental and we would definitely stay with these owners again.

Owner's Response: Hello Ryan,
Thank you so much for your GREAT review, Bo and I really enjoyed meeting all of you, such a great group...

I am happy to hear our baby / toddler items made your stay a little easier and more comfortable.
Bo and I would really like to thank your Family, Lynn's Family and your friends for treating our home and property with such respect and care. With 6 Adults and 4 Children, it was very evident to us how conscience you all were during your stay, I can't thank you enough. I am so glad we were able to get to chat and hear about all the places you went while in SD, you sure packed in a lot during your stay. Thank you again for being such wonderful Guests, we are looking forward to your next visit!

Bo and I give Ryan's Family and Friends a HUGE 5 stars, we recommend them to all owners.. They were a wonderful group.

We are looking forward to seeing you again, until next time,
Athena & Bo

Location

From the Owner

We have enjoyed living in Golden Hill for over 14 years in this 1907 Craftsman beauty Home; prior to buying in this neighborhood we rented and fell in love with the community spirit that is Golden Hill. Golden Hill is an Urban neighborhood of San Diego, California. It is a neighborhood in the true sense of the word; walkable, friendly, many restaurants, Farmers Market, and great to explore the Historical homes... Very central location, easy access to all. Auto access is direct from freeways 5 and 94, the major through streets and bus routes are Broadway (East and West), and 25th Street and 30th Street (North and South).

*The Golden Hill neighborhood is adjacent to the landing approach of the San Diego Airport; Airplane arrivals are throwout the day, sometimes busy and sometimes sporadic, night time arrivals are very sporadic. If you're sitting outside on our front porch or back patio you can't help but notice them.

**The interior of our home has been sound proofed as much if not more, as any home can be, with extra insulation, 5/8' drywall, dual pane windows and doors, tight window and door seals, all contributing to sound reduction.

Golden Hill is an Urban neighborhood of San Diego, California. It is located south of Balboa Park, north of Sherman Heights/Highway 94 (M. L. King, Jr. Freeway), and east of Downtown. Golden Hill is one of San Diego's most historic and architecturally eclectic zones, with many pre-1900 homes and apartments. This neighborhood is also in walking distance of Downtown, City College and much of Balboa Park. Auto access is direct from freeways 5 and 94, The major through streets and bus routes are Broadway (East and West), and 25th Street and 30th Street (North and South).

Golden Hill is home to Black Box Recording Studios, The Habitat Recording Studios, Los Reyes Mexican Food, Influx Cafe, Counterpoint, Turf Supper Club, Krakatoa & Pizzeria Luigi (which was featured on the Food Network show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives).
