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

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5
This is the third time that I have stayed at one of Kent's properties. Each time I love it more and more. It feels like home. This past time we stayed in the lower unit and my son stayed in the upper unit. We love both properties. The grounds are beautiful and you can see that he takes pride in his grounds. The location is great. You are close to HillCrest and Northpark, the Zoo, Balboa and my favorite beach, Coronado Beach. We love coming back to his property. You feel safe and the neighborhood is very nice. You can park right in front of your unit, and it is steps to the locked gate. The furnishings are beautiful, and if I could of taken the mattress back to Buffalo, I would of. In fact, I looked to see what kind it was!!!! Having the washer and dryer in the unit is great, less to pack. We look forward to returning again, Kent is a wonderful host, and we love going to his properties. Once you stay with him, you will NEVER go to a hotel.

New look for an old friend...

  • 5 of 5
I've been staying at Kent's property for more than six years. On a recent visit I was delighted to find that he'd completely updated the Terrace unit: fresh light-colored paint, new wall-to-wall carpeting and area rugs, a wonderfully cushy sofa, and a new entrance gate with vine-covered arbor. The sunlight and garden views are as glorious as ever, and Kent remains the best of hosts!

Beautiful, peaceful, tropical retreat

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I loved our stay at the bungalow. Our spacious unit felt like being in a tree house amongst private tropical gardens with no site or sound of city life. The space is quiet and peaceful. The house is very comfortable and the kitchen felt like I was at home. We cooked, grilled and enjoyed the patio. Kent was very responsive to any needs and accommodating for check in and departure. We both enjoyed running throughout Balboa Park…a stones throw from the driveway and with unlimited activities. We also enjoyed being able to walk to restaurants in both Hillcrest and North Park and a quick drive to the beach. We highly recommend this little piece of paradise and are looking forward to a return ourselves.

Good value and home base for exploring San Diego

  • 4 of 5
It is evident that, Kent, the live in owner, takes great pride in his jungle theme creation. This is a well cared for multi-unit complex and Kent is a gracious and very responsive owner/property manager. Upon our arrival, Kent pointed out a large unsightly crescent shaped stain in the living area carpet. The kitchen is adequately equipped for preparing meals and entertaining. The 'Terrace' unit feels somewhat dark and dated inside but evidently other reviewers feel that these design choices complement the retro jungle theme of this property. In this vein, despite the generous size windows in the living room, the interior shows darker than the photos Though very quiet during the day the faint noise of footsteps and a TV could be heard in the evening. The property is in a great location with proximity to down town districts, Balboa Park and the zoo.

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.
