This was a wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This property was overall a great property and we really enjoyed our stay. The positive things were

1 Great location near the beach

2 Plenty of space

3 The unit was well stocked

4 The owner was responsive and helpfull

5 Great value for money

Everyone is different so the following are the points I feel were not as positive. I still rate this unit 5 star because in my opinion they didn't really detract from the quality of my stay but they might matter to some people.

1 The unit is near a train line and the train does run all night.

2 The unit was a bit dated; however clean and well maintained and it was consistent for what I would expect for the price.

Overall I loved it and I would stay again.

Owner's Response: Thx Becky for the kind words. It is very much appreciated. We really want to provide our guests with a nice comfortable place to stay at a very reasonable price. FYI, we will be renovating our kitchen & bedrooms within the next month or so and will post new pictures once the renovation is complete. We also wish there was something we could do about the train noise but it's something that we have to deal with if you want to be near the beach in North San Diego County. The nice thing is that most people aren't bothered by it or typically get used to it after a little while. On the positive side, it is a very convenient way for our guests to get to downtown San Diego, Sea World, etc..

San Diego Trip Sept 2016

  • 2 of 5

Overall we have had an OK experience. The condo needs some TLC. For example, the kitchen sink was painted but the paint is chipping away. The kitchen c-tops are old and worn out. The tub upstairs is from 60's or 70's era. Carpets upstairs are older and so is the furniture in upstairs bedrooms. The whole place can use a new coat of paint especially baseboards downstairs. Still, all 100% functional but overall look and feel of the place is old. I know other reviews were all excellent and maybe we expected too much. The owner is great and very responsive and we had no complaints. Like I said everything is working and functional. The only other reason we gave this place 2 stars is the train noise especially at night and early morning. We had a bedroom facing the train tracks and we were not able to open balcony doors at night. So it did get pretty stuffy at night. So expect that during warmer weather this might be an issue since there is no AC either. The lack of washer and dryer was also a bit of an issue. We stayed there for 9 days and we thought we could deal with this but it did turn out to be an issue, There is a laundromat close by but no one wanted to spend half day sitting at the laundromat. Pros - Value, close to the beach, owners responsive, roomy Cons - No AC (which would not be an issue if you can open the windows), the train noise (3-4 times on Avg. at night), lack of laundry, cleanliness...

Nice clean well stocked condo, super close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

The property was in a great location and the price for a family of 4 was great! It had a well stocked kitchen and the ocean toys were awesome at the beach!

I wish I would have known (probably my error) there was no AC because I think we came during a heat wave. But at night it cooled off nicely and we were out for most of the day anyhow.

All in all it was great and we appreciate the owner for renting to us. We would come again !

Spacious and close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

It was just as expected. Clean and spacious. Loved that there was so many options for sleeping. 2 bedrooms upstairs, one of which had 2 double beds, and a murphy bed downstairs. Everyone was thrilled that they had their own bed and nobody was camping out on the floor or the sofa. The garage was full of useful tools- a cooler, beach chairs, beach toys, just as promised. The shared courtyard was sweet and the best part was that it was only 1 block from the beach access. Len was easy to work with. He always responded quickly to my emails and I received my return deposit in a very timely manner. Super pleased and I would definitely stay there again.
