"A Little Boutigue in Paradise" "I arrived here to stay 5 nights from Hawaii. I'm a little hard to impress being from there, but this little place was a jewel in the city. The location was perfect as I had business to conduct in downtown San Diego. Everything in this house is new and modern. I highly recommend the Mexican bakery on the corner for a fresh piece of tres liche cake or two blocks away has excellent pizza. Its easy to see that the owners take great pride in this place. Kudos to Terry and Maria for sharing this excellent home with me."
"Get away from the hectic pace of life, while enjoying your morning coffee on a terrace under a Bougainville trellis and listening to joyful birdsong...or sip a glass of wine in seclusion. This exceptional little place has friendly accommodating owners, proximity to groceries and loads of restaurants, plus close to Balboa Park for walking your dog. This is definitely a place to enjoy San Diego. Our month long stay flew by all too quickly."
"We loved the apartment, it was the perfect size and extremely well appointed. Down on the corner was a cute little café, bakery and grocery store. Across the street was a nice little local bar/restaurant that was lots of fun. You could walk two blocks to Golden Hill Park to walk or Balboa was a bit further, but still walkable. We had a terrific time, thanks so much to Kate and Terry! We'll be back and recommend your place to friends."
"What a beautiful entrance and courtyard! We loved the place. It was a perfect size for us and we loved how close it was to downtown and Balboa Park. Plus, it was on a bus route with frequent stops!"
"We LOVED this place. The house had everything we needed and the location was perfect! Close to EVERYTHING must do in San Diego. Bed was super comfortable, unit was clean and had everything you would have in your own house. Plus, it also had a garage. Nice grounds with beautiful flowers. And the process to rent this unit was very simple and easy directly with the owner Terry! The house also had a keyless entry, so that was super easy for us so we did not have to carry keys around. I would go back to this unit any time we visit SD again! Thanks Terry!"Read more
