traveler reviews for this ocean beach cottage rental

It was everything we were looking for and more

Review submitted: January 21, 2010   Date of arrival: January 14, 2010

We were originally looking at hotels for our trip to San Diego, but I randomly came across this property while checking other options....Our trip was so much better because of it! As soon as we walked in the door, we fell in love with the place. It was very clean and well kept, the kitchen was ready for all of our meal adventures (including some baking). Part of the fun of our trip was being able to make so many meals together...saved us a bunch of money, too. My wife really enjoyed the deck areas, great places to lounge around outside, and the neighborhood is quiet enough (except for the occasional plane overhead) that spending time outside isn't a problem.

The location is amazing! Not only is it close to a beautiful beach, but it's also really easy to get to the interstate. Easy access to everything else in San Diego. But no need to go too far because there's plenty to do just in the neighborhood. Be sure to eat at Hodad's (2 blocks away) during your stay.

The management is great, very easy to get a hold of and ready to answer any questions you might have. We highly recommend this place and hope it's available during our next visit.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:
The location couldn't have been better-two blocks from the beach and two blocks from my sister- in- law's house. It's close enough that a young child can walk to the beach. It had all the amenities a family would need for a week. We cooked a few meals, and ate at some of the great resaurants Ocean Beach has to offer. We will be coming back!

Worse than old Motel 6 cleanliness. :-(

Review submitted: October 30, 2013   Date of arrival: October 16, 2013

What would otherwise have been a nice stay at a quaint beach cottage was very much spoiled by the cleanliness of the cottage. Other than maybe the changing of sheets and towels, it's unlikely any other cleaning has been done here for quite a long time. The bathroom floor was dirty. We swept up enough hair from the bathroom floor to make a good sized hair ball. There was hair (long and short) on the floor and furniture all over the cottage. Inside doorknobs and drawer handles weren't clean - they were sticky and had debris on them. Sorry, that's disgusting. The shower curtain is moldy. The owner makes a big deal about keeping the cottage clean to the point of asking guests to remove their shoes to protect the wood floors, but the floors are of questionable cleanliness, so I wouldn't walk inside barefoot, and walking in socks just gets them dirty. If the cottage was actually clean it would be a nice home base while staying in San Diego.

A few idiosyncrasies:

Although the owner makes a big deal about being "green" (for example with an "on demand" water heater) the water heater is in the laundry shed outside. The flow from just the kitchen or bathroom sink isn't enough to get the water heater to turn on, but turning on the water in the tub is. So to get hot water in the kitchen or bathroom sink, you have to turn on the hot water in the tub and wait about two minutes for hot water in the tub, and then turn on the water in the bathroom or kitchen sink to get hot water at the sinks. We probably wasted more water than we used because of this -- that's far from being green. It's a little inconvenient, but this is a tolerable oddity.

I suggest washing the dishes and utensils you use before using them. The inconvenience of getting hot water to the kitchen probably had prior guests washing the dishes with cold water, so they're of questionable cleanliness.

If you're not familiar with Ocean Beach, you might be surprised by the frequency and volume of airport traffic overhead. Having previously spent many years in OB and San Diego, this wasn't an issue for us.

We left the cottage in cleaner condition than when we arrived, but blew off a day's rent and left a day early because we'd had enough of it. A quaint old beach cottage can be clean. Unfortunately this one isn't.

Owners response: We strive to provide all our valued guests with the best possible cleanliness, comfort and services. When you feel that we have failed to meet your expectations, it’s important for us to know, right away! We have a team of housekeeping professionals that carry the VRHP seal (Vacation Rental Housekeeping Professionals). They all strive to offer quality services & professional standard of cleanliness as reflected in our many favorable reviews. We strive to take great care of you while you are in San Diego as our valued guest!
We regret any inconvenience or frustration that your experience has caused you and do hope to welcome you back! Our guests are generally “WOW”ed by the entire experience of staying at any of our vacation rentals.
To ensure that we are meeting our guests needs, our housekeeping staff conducts themselves in a manner which reflects the high regard that we have for our Guests and properties; we've notified housekeeping management of your complaint and we are taking action!
We can only wish that you have at least taken the time to inform us that conditions were less than satisfactory. We would have had the chance to address this issue immediately! Unfortunately, you have opted not contacted us throughout your stay and have not given us the opportunity to correct the situation.
We do take pride in striving to be as green as possible. We do not, however, claim to have a LEED certification. At least, not yet. Becoming green is a work in progress and we are continuously making improvements to all our rentals. As one can see from the numerous excellent reviews we have received in the past from very satisfied guests, this instance is an exception. We have not received the Vacation Rental of the Year 2012 for not taking care of our guests.
As to having to washing dishes with cold water, we will be addressing amount of time hot water takes to reach the kitchen sink from the on-demand water heater by installing a recirculating pump. There is a fully functional dishwasher in the cottage.
This is a wonderful home and we want to make sure your vacation experience is uninhibited. If you have any questions or conditions are not to your full satisfaction, please contact us and we will be happy to address your questions. We cannot assist if we are kept in the dark! Give us the opportunity to make your stay the best ever!
We look forward to welcoming you back!
