Guestbook comments from the owner

We wanted to thank you again for your hospitality this past week. We had a great time -- very relaxing! The weather was perfect for us -- we were loathe to come back to 105 + degrees. Your home is beautiful -- and I am in love with the back yard! Thank you again, Lyndsay

Beyond all expectations

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time we did a VRBO and we're quite nervous despite having done my research in advance. From the minute we arrived Kent was welcoming, informative and gracious. The apartment was all the pictures portray it to be and we absolutely loved it and it's location. With off street parking we knew our rental car was safe and the oasis was only 5-15 minutes away from absolutely everything we wanted to do. If we ever return to San Diego, We absolutely won't stay anywhere else!

Private Resort

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this lovely property for a week. Everything at this property was superb. We especially loved sitting on the terrace in the warm California sun. Both the home and the gardens have obviously been well loved by the owner, who is also a helpful host. All that San Diego has to offer is easy to access from this quiet, tranquil, glorious property. The kitchen was well appointed and gave us the opportunity to prepare some meals and left overs from restaurants. Spacious closets with quality hangers and free parking round out a great experience. We will definitely stay here again if given the opportunity.

Great choice!

  • 5 of 5
All the wonderful things said in the previous reviews are true! I came to San Diego by myself to explore and enjoy the warm sunshine and beaches. This was a cozy retreat in the city where I was very comfortable after a day out exploring. I loved the tropical gardens and the location! Since Kent lives on site and the compound is enclosed with its own locking gate, I felt very safe there. I walked in the neighborhood in the evening and kept the windows open to get the cool breezes at night. It was a delightful time. I would absolutely stay here again.

Home away from home

We had a great experience staying at this property while visiting the grandkids. Beautiful landscaping, quiet, secluded, comfortable with off street parking. We enjoyed breakfast and reading on the patio. Kent was an excellent host and readily available.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5
We were met at the street entrance by Kent, the owner, who guided us into the property. Past the locked gate, it opened up to a beautiful property, surrounded by lush vegetation, elegantly arranged decor and with several areas to sit with a cup of coffee or glass of wine or even to enjoy an outdoor meal. It is a three-lot property so plenty of privacy is afforded. The interior of our unit was superbly decorated--warm, inviting and comfortable. Kent did an excellent job giving us an orientation of the interior and exterior space. Added to all of this, it was a very quiet property and has street and off-the-street parking. A+++. We will be staying here whenever we go to San Diego from now on.

Fantastic Tree Top Place!

  • 5 of 5
Fabulous place to stay! The grounds are spectacularly beautiful and reminded me of our stay in Costa Rica. There are views of lush tropical (and native California) foliage from every window. I half expected monkeys to come swinging through the trees! It’s quiet and secluded and yet convenient to all of the ‘must see’s’ in San Diego. Balboa park is only steps away……..so lovely for walking. Kent’s place is very comfortable and well-appointed and Kent is a most gracious and accommodating host. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
