traveler reviews for this san diego house rental

Cozy, Well-Stocked, Easy Access to Trolley

Review submitted: April 6, 2014   Date of arrival: March 28, 2014

We rented the three bedroom for nearly a week, first attending a conference at the convention center, then hanging out for a few days of sightseeing. Each room was comfy and well-appointed including its own cable TV, allowing each of us to retreat when we wanted some downtime and entertainment. The spacious living room has plenty of area to stretch out and the kitchen had more than enough room for everyone.

We used the grill, which was fantastic according to my husband, and the kitchen was stocked with every spice we needed as well as all the little things that could nickel and dime you like foil, dishwasher soap, oil and vinegar, etc. A nice unexpected touch were the tall glasses frosting up in the freezer, perfect for the Coronitos we bought across the street at the mercado.

Take the trolley to the Gaslamp District from the blue line stop down the street and make a quick transfer at the next stop to the red line for just one more stop. You will find yourself right at the entrance to the Gaslamp District and in restaurant and entertainment heaven and on the other side, across from the San Diego Convention Center.

We enjoyed the large grocery store across the street and made daily runs to this mercado, sampling the good Mexican fare from the restaurant inside the store and taking some of it home, and shopping for this and that as the mood suited us. Good variety at the meat counter, good selection of fresh fruits and veggies, and everything else you need are all at this stop. Enjoy a stop at the ice cream shop in the same plaza after dinner.

Off-street parking for one car in the garage made it easy to get things in and out of the house. Check out the art studio across from the garage and the coffee shop on the corner. Athena was a great help to us when one of us had our iPhone stolen at the convention center and she was quickly available whenever we texted her. We got the feeling it was very important to her that we were all getting our needs met yet never made us feel as if we were imposing. We appreciated her graciousness and you will, too.

Recommended for: families with teenagers, sight seeing

Owners response: Hello Yvonne,

Casa de Corazon gives Yvonne and her Group
a HUGE 5 stars ***** !!!

Pride in ownership

Review submitted: April 5, 2014   Date of arrival: March 23, 2014

We chose this rental based upon the other positive reviews and I can confirm that they were correct. Athena was very responsive by email prior to our trip and provided some great advice regarding places to visit in San Diego. She met us at the check in time and provided the most detailed orientation of a home I have ever received. It seems that they have thought of everything you would need including the spices for cooking. The house is older but it has been tastefully updated and very clean. There is tv in every room except the bathroom. Don't let the single bathroom cause you to skip this listing, we make it work with 2 teenager daughters, my mom and wife. We had a minor issue during our stay when some workers up the block accidentally cut into the water main. Athena responded right away, found out what was happening, updated us and phoned to confirm the water was back on when the city said it would be. While these sort of things are unlikely to happen, if something does go wrong, these are the type of owners you want to be dealing with. The location is great because it is so central. You have a grocery store across the street so you don't have to buy too much at the beginning of your stay because the shopping is right there. There is one issue that some may find a problem. You are staying in a downtown location so it is a bit noisy in the two street side bedrooms. On the other hand it also means that you are somewhere with a pretty good vibe that you won't get in a sub division. If we need a place this size again in San Diego we will definitely try to stay here again.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Anthony and Family,
Thank you for your amazing review, it was such a pleasure to meet you and your wonderful Family. I appreciate that you took the time to write such a great, detailed review, I am happy I was able to help with some sightseeing suggestions, I am glad they worked out. I appreciate you letting others know how central our location is; and very happy you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate how you took such care of our home and property, you treated it as if it were your own.

***This is actually the first time or review anyone has mentioned any noise. As you had mentioned the City was doing some work on our street as well as other streets, it then made our street a short cut to the Gaslamp / Downtown area. We are lucky we do not have any bar's or clubs next to us. Our street has 1 lane in each direction.
Being near the City, in an Urban environment verses being in the suburbs, has it’s pluses and minuses. We have been told from our Guests staying with us, whose friends decided to stay in the Heart of Gaslamp/downtown that the noise of downtown was incredibly loud, and did not die down until closing of bars at 2:00am.
We feel lucky to have ample free parking, and we are not in the "Bar District" yet so close to all the activity !!

We do have all the sounds that an urban environment has.

*Reading your review, we can tell you agree, the pluses of being so centrally located and close to Gaslamp/downtown, and all it has to offer; truly outweighs the negatives of being right in the Heart of Gaslamp/downtown!!
We hope to see you again, you are always welcome.

Casa de Corazon gives Anthony and his Family a big 5 stars *****
We highly recommend them to all Owners, they are great people.
Until next time,
Athena & Bo

Review submitted: March 12, 2014   Date of arrival: March 1, 2014

I rented this condo with 4 colleagues and it was perfect. The condo is big enough that we each had enough intimacy. Big enough also that we were able to have friends over for a barbecue! The mattresses are super confortable, the condo is really clean and modern. The owners were always available to answer our questions, and stayed up late to greet us upon arrival! I would highly recommend this condo!

Owners response: Marie-Christine,

Bo and I would like to thank you and your Group for staying with us. We hope your convention was a success.
We also thank you for respecting our House rules and asking permission in advance to invite a few Conventioneers over for a BBQ; and hope you had a great time..

We are glad you enjoyed your stay in San Diego..
