Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a great vacation for my family. It is away from the public beach parking so there are less people. It was close to all the main attractions and there were plenty of attracions within walking distance. The places to eat were well mapped out by our host and they included all price ranges and food types. We will stay again!

Hangin at the Beach

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing family vacation at the Dollhouse!
The photos don't lie....the Dollhouse is a great little place to hang out in one of the coolest places on earth. We did it all with our 9 and 12 year olds while in San Diego and hanging out at the Dollhouse was a great way to end each of our very busy days!!
Our kids especially loved the loft!
Many thanks for making the Dollhouse available for families like us to enjoy!

Cute cottage, great getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time at the dollhouse. The place was clean, cute, comfortable and had EVERYTHING you need for a getaway. We traveled with 2 kids and an infant, and it was just great to have all the beach items there for the the kids and us parents to have a relaxing time. Plus, the fact that it was steps from the beach was a huge advantage. Had a great time and would def. come back again.

Fun With Friends

  • 4 of 5
Our stay at the Dollhouse was really special. Our 25th wedding anniversaries! Joined by friends, we beached it most days and found the dollhouse to be very accommodating. Everything we needed was there. No need to bring beach towels, chairs, or boogie boards..which makes packing much easier.
We did have a slight heat wave and had some 90 degree + days, which made sleeping a bit uncomfortable, since there is no airconditioning. Plenty of fans though and a small portable cooler. But I'm a person who needs a pretty cold sleeping environment, so it wasn't ideal. Keeping the window open for air helped, but our next door neighbors, noisily perched each morning on the rooftop to watch the sun come up, kept us from sleeping past 6 am. Hence the four stars.
Other than that, our stay was lovely and the dollhouse a joy!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you found the dollhouse a "joy" and enjoyed all the accommodations that make it so extra special. We do everything within our power to ensure that our guests have a five star stay but alas...we can't control the weather. Sad to lose a star over that but happy to know that you found everything within our control to be exceptional. Hope to see you in the future.

Great location for beach property in San Diego

  • 5 of 5
We loved the Doll House! The location was perfect for our family trip to San Diego. Everything was close by and easy to get to. The house was a great size for us as well. My teenage daughter loved the bed in the loft. The recommendations of places to eat and things to do which Nancy provided were excellent. We enjoyed eating at local places and enjoyed the bonfire on the bay with s'mores! We hope to return soon!

House was exactly as described, if not better. It was equipped with everything we needed for the week. Location could not be beat, I was a little worried being so close to the action during spring break since I was traveling with small children but overall it was quiet. There is so much within walking distance that it seemed like you never had to go far. We enjoyed walks on the beach every night as well as a couple of trips to Belmont Park. Driving to all of the attractions like Sea World, the Zoo, La Jolla, Old Town, etc was a breeze.
I was glad i did not let the car rental company talk me into a bigger car. When you are not used to a car, navigating the small allies and garages in San Diego can be a bit of a nightmare. I would definately recommend a small car if you want to be able to use the garage parking.
The owner was very helpful when I couldn't figure out the TV and responded immediately to my email with a resolution.
My kids loved the attic playroom, we will definately stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review Kelly. So glad your family loved the dollhouse. Isn't the loft so cute... Come back soon!
Yes, parking garages are tight at the beach where every inch counts. Our garage does fit even SUV size cars, but it takes some maneuvering to get larger vehicles in there. Good thing there are so many fun things to do without driving anywhere!
