About Andrea Rubalcaba on behalf of Charles Patton

I have found so much pleasure and meaning in nurturing a community of 23 incredible, unique and comforting neighbors. I have completely changed the way the building looks, feels and even functions! I am so proud of the camaraderie our residents have and the compassion they feel for each other. Every guest that I have hosted (whether it be for days or years), has always been so happy with their experience among the charming gardens, cozy grounds, warm people and quality management of our home.

Andrea Rubalcaba on behalf of Charles Patton purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Andrea Rubalcaba on behalf of Charles Patton chose San Diego

When you're here, you completely forget about the outside world. Whether it's mimosas and Yahtzee on a sunny morning or hot cocoas around a bon-fire on a cool evening, our residents (and YOU) are always enjoying the community. This is the kind of place where you can be inside or out. They're both equally beautiful, tranquil and comforting. Not to mention you're only a moments drive from all of San Diego's enchanted offerings.

What makes this apartment unique

Courtyard Pool, Small-Town Feel, Homey Neighbors, Fire Pits, Lounge Areas outdoors, Gardens, Quiet Tranquil Courtyard.

Awesome stay as first time VRBO user.

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome and exceeded our expectations! The only thing we would change next time is to buy groceries before getting to the property as there is no grocery stores around. We found parking to not be a problem, but we were back in early afternoon/evening. My husband who grew up in California said that having to find street parking is pretty typical.

We found the pool, grill, and apartment to be what was advertised. We enjoyed swimming in the pool with our kids as our meal cooked on the grill. It was nice to be able to eat outside at the table provided by the pool. The accommodations and attention to detail inside was great, everything was top notch. We already know we will be back next year!

Inadequate parking and unresponsive property manager

  • 3 of 5

Three days prior to our arrival, we had to reach out to Andrea for instructions to access the property. Eventually, she responded via text. Part of the instructions stated, "Vehicles are to be parked in designated “Guest” parking areas, or in the properties attached garage". There is no such thing, and we had difficulties finding a parking spot on a Sunday afternoon. Called, left voice messages, and texted Andrea - she never responded. I was able to reach Damaro eventually, and he made an exception to help us with parking. Although this residential community may be somewhat secured, parking on the street is definitely at your own risk.

This unit is clean, well-stocked, and comfortable. Keep in mind that this unit does not have a central a/c system. To cool the living room area, we were advised to turn on the a/c in the rooms and open the doors. There were a few flies that came in whenever we opened the doors.

The communal areas looked abandoned with cobwebs near the entrance gate/stairways and the pool had (what looked like) rust at the bottom.

I would not recommend this vacation rental.

Owner's Response: Hello Lilian, I do apologize for the late email with instructions, I do recognize that I sent them a bit later than I usually do. VRBO is also great, because you can always reach out to them when you don’t hear back from the owner. I do appreciate you reaching out when you did not receive instructions; It is unfortunate that you misunderstood the instructions which clearly stated there was only street parking. If you are not okay with urban neighborhoods and parking in the street, then this is clearly not the rental for you. In the future I would recommend thoroughly researching the neighborhood prior to committing to a rental. I do recall both the manager and I responding back to your call. You left me a voicemail and I responded. We take pride in our rentals and strive to keep our rentals feeling and looking great so that our guests can enjoy their vacation with us. There is no rust in our pools, not sure what you are referring to? Our pictures are very accurate with the state of the rental. I do appreciate you highlighting the good aspect of the rental. Kind Regards, Andrea

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Andrea's emails were prompt and courteous. The on-site mgmt Damaro was friendly and helpful. The unit was clean, well stocked, and roomy. One guest was a bit nervous about being only a couple of blocks from a busy street with lots of liquor stores but the area around the unit was definitely a residential neighborhood and the security was complete. We really enjoyed the pool area and the greenery in the enclosed courtyard. I would only make one suggestion, the room with the bunks needs a comfortable chair. The bunk above is too low to allow you to sit on the lower bunk while dressing and putting on shoes. Other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Lots more space than a hotel would have provided.

  • 4 of 5

Everything is exactly as described. Items also included in rental that I didn't realize or weren't mentioned were beach items such as foldable chair, floaties, sand toys. There was a portable playpen, umbrella stroller, crayons/markers in coffee table drawer.

Some of the dishes & knives weren't clean but felt maybe bc they were accidentally unloaded from the dishwasher before they went through the wash cycle. The bedding items were superior in quality. I had to tell my teen no she could not take the pillow home! Previous things said about the neighborhood are on point. So I would say its not for everybody. Negatives we experienced were the pool wasn't heated so it was cold for our 11yr old son. Which is why he would jump in instead of walking in. This annoyed the neighbor lady downstairs who politely asked my husband to make him stop even though it was middle of day. She explained she wanted him to have fun, but do so quietly (without jumping into water) I guess she works from home. We were very respectful of the rules & worked hard at being very quiet, especially bc we arrived very late first night. If you get 2 noise complaints (according to the contract) you could get evicted. (Not sure how well it is enforced but possibly good to know if you're a noisy crowd.) The only reason I didn't give it a full 5 stars is because of parking. For just the 1st night we had assigned parking slot thanks to property manager worked something out. It was helpful so we could take all our bags in. But after that it sucked having to park farther away. But I got to put my parallel parking skills to the test. Very glad we stayed here. We came to area to attend our son's graduation from MCRD (bootcamp).

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

The property was in a central location for us. Although it wasn't the nicest area of town, the inside of the condo was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking pots and pans. The only complaint is that we had a hard time finding parking. Most evenings we had to park a half mile away and walk to the condo.
