          traveler reviews for this san diego studio rental

          Home away from home

          Review submitted: April 9, 2014   Date of arrival: April 3, 2014

          I have rented 4 or 5 VRBO properties in the past and this is by far the best one yet. We were a late arrival which Jim & Lynne graciously accommodated and upon entering the casita, we were greeted with soft lighting, a personal note from the owners, and home baked chocolate chip cookies! Everything was just as described and then some. The casita is beautifully decorated in warm, southwestern colors and lovingly appointed with everything you need (every time I thought something was missing, I would open another drawer and there it would be!) And don't be fooled by the pictures: the casita is bigger than it appears on the website. It was more than enough room for my husband and I (and he's 6'3" tall). Yes, the bathroom is a bit cozy, but the beautifully tiled shower is very roomy and there's plenty of hot water. Everything was clean as a whistle and the linens provided were plush and colorful. Speaking of plush, this was easily one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in on the road and the pillows were great too--none of the neck and upper back problems I sometimes experience when I'm away.

          The location of the casita is perfect. It's in a quiet, eclectic neighborhood with several good restaurants within walking distance (try the Parkhouse Eatery or the Adams Ave Grill. Great pizza at Red House Pizza). It's easy driving distance to all the attractions of San Diego but I really appreciated coming home to the peace and quiet of the casita (and the gurgling waterfall!) at the end of the day. The off-street parking is a huge plus.

          Perhaps the biggest reason to stay at the casita is the owners, Lynne and Jim. They are exceedingly generous and gracious and will offer any assistance needed without being intrusive. Once you meet them ( and their beautiful dog Peanut!) , you feel like you've known them forever...and it just makes your stay so much more pleasant. They give new meaning to the phrase, "Mi casa es su casa!" If we come back to San Diego, we will definitely stay here again. I give this property my highest recommendation!!

          Relief from winter!

          Review submitted: April 1, 2014   Date of arrival: March 22, 2014

          To two winter-weary Canadians, the Casita was a bright and welcome change from endless cold and snow! The photographs on the website are accurate, but the warmth and colour of this little house are even more remarkable than the photos suggest. The space is thoughtfully designed, and from the kitchen tiles to the dishes, bed linens and bathroom towels, everything is of very high quality and beautifully coordinated. Everything that might be needed or wanted is there - an ample supply of pots and pans and appliances, comfortable seating, access to the small, flower-filled garden that belongs to the main house, a large television, a comfortable queen-size bed. We especially appreciated the friendly welcome, the cookies waiting in a basket on the kitchen island, the bottle of wine in the refrigerator, the wi-fi connection and the local maps that had been thoughtfully provided. In this car-dependent city, the neighbourhood is great for walking - good restaurants, cafés, and grocery stores close by, and many attractions only a short drive away. This was our third VRBO experience in California, and it was truly memorable. We'd recommend it with no hesitation. As its calendar shows, it is a popular destination - and for good reason! Thanks to Jim and Lynne for a wonderful though all-too-short stay!

          Recommended for: age 55+, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

          Owners response: Thank you Kathy and Pete for your wonderful description of the Casita's ambiance, comfort, functionality, and neighborhood close to all. We are happy that San Diego provided you with a brief relief from the brutal winter this year in Canada and hope to see you again.

          The Casita of Charm

          Review submitted: March 3, 2014   Date of arrival: January 8, 2014

          We are two escapees from Minnesota cold.
          What a wonderful refuge we found in "Casita Del Sol Manner". It's located in such a way you can get to all the fun places and conveniences in San Diego in ten minutes' drive. We totally enjoyed this fairy tale like cottage with all it's charming furnishings and kitchen wares. Everything exceeded our expectations.
          TV and Wi-Fi is first rate and the hosts are so wonderfully hospitable that you feel totally at home. They even allowed us to use their garden cabana and BBQ facility for our use.
          We spent 2 months' pleasurable stay here and plan to come next year again.
          Our stay here was totally satisfactory.
