Perfectly Cozy!

Review submitted: August 15, 2014   Date of arrival: April 17, 2014

I was very excited about this vacation home. It was exactly what I was looking for. My husband and I live in San Diego and we had family visiting for a vacation and it was a staycation for us. We wanted a well maintained property that had a beachy feel, comfortable, allowed our boxer and in walking distance to both the beach and the bay. It's a long list but this home met our every need! We did have an issue with one of the cruisers but Sheila was quick to respond and had a rental ready for us within 30 min. Speaking rentals, it was awesome to have a rental place around the corner that offered discounts while staying at a LuvSurf property. We rented rollerblades and surf gear. They we're amazing too! We'll definitely be renting with luv surf in the future.

Perfect Location...close to bay and beach

Review submitted: August 6, 2014   Date of arrival: July 20, 2014

My husband, two kids, and I arrived to exactly what was in the pictures that Sheila sent me. The carpets were freshly cleaned, complimentary toiletries and beverages, as well as wifi and cable TV.

We spent out four days walking to local coffee and breakfast shops, relaxing on the ocean side, and retiring after hanging out at the bay side.

The convenience of having a washer/dryer in the unit, plus detergent, was priceless after swimming every day.

The balcony was perfect for after dinner drinks and catching a peek at the fire works show each night at Sea World.

Sheila's attentiveness and customer service are unparalleled. She answered all questions via text and/or email and offered to drop off fans (not needed) if we wanted.

Definitely will be using them again!!

Great vacation

Review submitted: July 18, 2014   Date of arrival: July 6, 2014

We stayed here a week ago. There was plenty of room for 9 of us. We had concerns about being able to park 4 vehicles, but it was not an issue even though there is official parking for just one car. The neighborhood was quiet and I certainly felt very safe. Kitchen had everything we needed, the only need to drive was to the grocery and once to a San Diego attraction. Belmont Park (a block away) was a bigger draw to our 6 & 8 year olds than the attraction. The beach and bay are all the plans you need. Luv Surf was immediate when we needed something. Very responsive to our needs. I must apologize to them for confusing our departure date. We were at the beach when the cleaning ladies arrived, my mistake. They were very nice about my error. I highly recommend this property. Very comfortable and homey. Thanks Sheila.

I can't wait to go back!

Review submitted: April 29, 2014   Date of arrival: February 3, 2014

We rented the Jamaica Ct upper level property for our first trip to San Diego and couldn't have been happier with that choice. The location is perfect, so close to everything, the beach, shops, restaurants, all within walking distance. The property was very child friendly. There were even beach toys in the closet to utilize. The decor inside was fun and beachy. We used the kitchen and laundry room daily. It felt like a true home away from home. The Luv Surf company really puts pride into their property, and treats its guests with special care. It was the perfect spot for our family to stay in and I would go back to this property in a heartbeat.

Thoroughly pleased with our stay at 816 Jamaica Court. Although slightly modified, we were even able to cook Thanksgiving dinner in the fully furnished kitchen. Dinner was accompanied by the complimentary wine provided, quite a nice touch. Pack and Play crib, high chair and beach toys were great to have with our 18 month grandson. Bikes, lots of beach chairs and towels, extra bath towels, washer and dryer, grill, etc - this place has everything to make for a comfortable and enjoyable vacation! Location was also ideal, being close to both bay and ocean.

Great Spring Break Trip!!

Review submitted: March 24, 2014   Date of arrival: March 15, 2014

6 of my college friends and I rented this unit for Spring Break this year. We didn't like the crowds at PCB like all the other spring breakers, but chose to opt for more relaxing San Diego- and we were glad we did! The unit suited our needs just right. For location, it was prime. Homes on the beachfront rent for a premium, but we were 2-3 minute walk from the beach, so not a big deal to us. Besides, beachfront homes are not as private because of the constant stream of people walking/biking/skating by. Its very close to some great shops and restaurants (Go to Luigi's- Best pizza ever)and right by the Belmont park roller coaster that is so worth the 6 buck ride. Now, on to the unit itself. We appreciated that there is a parking space in a carport since parking is limited in the area. It was a bit difficult to get our big rental Suburban in there, but not impossible if you're a good driver. 2 patios are great but we mainly hung out on the one by the dining room with the grill. We sat out there and watched the Seaworld fireworks (perfect view)and generally just relaxed while grilling our meals. (2 propane tanks included) The beds were comfortable, plenty of clean sheets available for the trundles and pullout and air mattress too. This place is fully equipped with every essential you could need: beach toys, chairs, kitchen utensils, laundry supplies, etc etc. Sheila (property manager) even left us a couple bottles of wine and 6 pack of beer. Sheila was amazing to work with, very responsive and accommodating. She encouraged us to eat at their restaurant "The Patio on Lamont Street" and that was our favorite restaurant in the area that week. They even split the check for us (why does no one do that in SD???). The neighbors to the West were not very nice. I get that we parked in "her spot" once but they were just rude, so watch out for them. Overall, I would recommend this place to everyone going to San Diego. It made our vacation that much more relaxing! Thanks!! :)

Family fun & birthday celebration!!

Review submitted: November 9, 2013   Date of arrival: November 1, 2013

A great time was had by all, as we gathered for my husband 70th birthday celebration! The rental was clean, comfortable and as represented in the pics, no ugly surprises. Sheila was so very helpful with any questions we had. Very nice touch we found the frig well stocked with cool beverages!
The location was so convenient to beach, bay, shops, restaurants and Belmont Park. I remembered how lovely it is to live within easy walking distance to the beach :)
Our 3 granddaughters had a blast and especially enjoyed all the sand toys provided!
We look forward to coming again at this reasonable rate.
Just a couple of minor improvements - there were no wash cloths and a few of the blinds had the turning sticks to open and close off or broken.
Thanks again & blessings!

Lovely home and efficient staff

Review submitted: October 2, 2013   Date of arrival: September 7, 2013

LuvSurf staff made our first beach home rental easy. They were very responsive to inquiries and have a virtual tour of the place on their website. We canvased many beach houses in San Diego and La Jolla that allowed pets and is a short walking distance to the beach. This cute house in Jamaica court with unmatchable rental price deal was difficult to pass. The house met all our preferred criteria 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, allows pet, very close to the beach, and within our budget (actually even lower than we originally anticipated). It was fully furnished with bathroom/kitchen essentials, beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, bike, and toys/bowls for your Fido. There were 6 adults in our group so it was very comfortable for us to stay in a house that can accommodate more. We were afraid that the house might have lingering smell from pets that stayed before us but they do an awesome job maintaining the place very clean and smelling fresh. Our 7-month old Golden Retriever also enjoyed this place because he was free to roam around the house and go to Ocean Dog Beach. I give them 4/5 only because I think the parking space seem a little bit small for our Sequoia when the other space is occupied by the other tenant. It didn't take away from the fun family vacation though because we got the parking situation sorted out with the other tenant. We just had to fold our side mirror and stay super close to the post. It might be all parking by the beach have the same problem. The good news for us is we went when it's not peak season so weekdays was not as crowded than the weekend we got there. Lovely home and friendly and efficient staff so definitely a place we might come visit again!

Adorable house so close to the beach!

Review submitted: October 1, 2013   Date of arrival: September 6, 2013

We rented both the Jamaica properties. They were both so cute, well decorated, and fully stocked! They had a great beachy feel and had all the amenities we needed and more. The house was so close to the beach and provided easy access to restaurants and more. In addition the service from the folks at Luv was impeccable! We are definitely coming back again!

Famil vacation

Review submitted: August 28, 2013   Date of arrival: August 20, 2013

This place is super close to beach and bay. Very easy! Has all the things a place would need. My only complaint would be the carpet. I think in rentals (especially ones tht allow dogs). There should not be carpet through out the place. The carpet was dirty with a lot of spots. They shld consider at least putting tile down or hard flooring.

Perfect location

Review submitted: February 6, 2013   Date of arrival: February 1, 2013

My family and I had a wonderful stay at the property. The location worked great for all of our group. One of our groups was competing in a regatta hosted by the Mission Bay Yacht club and it was a 10 minute walk to the club. The rest of our group split time between the beech and other great San Diego attractions. Thanks

Review submitted: November 20, 2012   Date of arrival: November 8, 2012

The location was excellent for walking on the bay or the ocean. And the house was ideal for our group of six adults. We found everything we needed in the kitchen for food prep. Even the dog felt welcome!
You won't be disappointed in your choice of Jamaica Ct!

Better than Great!!

Review submitted: August 17, 2012   Date of arrival: August 9, 2012

We have rented in Mission Beach and Pacific Beach for about 20 years. This place is the best we have ever stayed at. We all appreciated how clean it was. All of the little details went a long way, full size "fluffy towels", well equiped kitchen, and the laundry room. My family is already planning another trip .But, as my grandkids say, "Only if we can go back here". We also loved going to Luigi's for Pizza (a short walk) and riding bikes on the Bay.
Oh, and the owner was very responsive to any requests.

Great deal and a great location... plus, they allow pets!

Review submitted: June 26, 2012   Date of arrival: June 16, 2012

We stayed Father's Day weekend 2012 when we came out to SD with a group of friends for a wedding. We had initially booked a hotel, but found this house instead, and we are so glad we made the change!

We were lucky enough to be the first guests inside this property-- which had just been renovated the day before we came. EVERYTHING was great-- you can tell the company is very detail-oriented and we felt at home from the moment we arrived.

Well stocked house with towels, beach toys, kitchen necessities.

We also loved the fact that we could bring our dog along, and we were only about a 3 minute walk to the bay to take her for a walk. The ocean is only about 5 minutes away.

The company was very easy to work with and quickly answered any questions I had prior to booking.

The rental was clean and had everything we needed. It was so close to the ocean and the bay we walked back and forth multiple times during the day. There was plenty of room and I loved the laundry room. The keyless entry was helpful too. We would definitely go back!
