Very Good! Lydia and Mitch were both very friendly and helpful. We caught a ride with Mitch, and he showed us their fav brunch location (Farmer’s Bottega) which was very good!

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Lydia's place. We didn't want to leave. It had everything we needed and more. We enjoyed sitting out on the private little patio. It was the perfect place to relax and it was central to everything. Lydia and Mitch treated us like family and al…

Lydia was such a great host - She was super sweet and also quick at responding to any questions I had. Traveling with two young kids can be difficult, but we were all very comfortable and felt at home! The bed was very comfortable and we used the air mattress which was also great…

Lydia was very nice and left us some provisions in fridge. The house is cute and good for a couple but way too small for kids in the living room. The house also smelled very musty. Most importantly, the hot tub is not part of the private patio. It is directly behind owners house …

Response from Lydia:
No one ever complained about the smell in the house; This is an old property, built in the 1920s and some sign of the time is to be expected even with the recent remodel. You and your family stayed 6 days, and never even considered opening windows; Of course, it will "smell" when 4 people stay in the 600ft2 for a week with their belongings and waste. The cottage is properly maintained and inspected regularly, new bedding and towels regularly provided. Yes, it's a bit small for a family with teenagers or grown ups but it perfectly fits 3 adults or a family of 4 with smaller children, as stated. As for the jacuzzi, you missed to read the house rules before you decided to rent and once you booked; it clearly states that jacuzzi can be used upon request, and I did allow you to use it once my front house guests left. Read the reviews below, and you will find that I am very happy to please and share with my guests, especially the jacuzzi when requested upon the booking. I am committed to sharing my home with people and strangers who are using AirBnB because they prefer the comfort of home away from home, and do not expect hotel standards. I love to please my guests, and am happy to refund if my home doesn't match their expectations; but you decided to stay all 6 days and I tried to accommodate you, even treat you with a hefty gift certificate to a reputable local restaurant. However, you even found a reason to complain about the restaurant. Clearly, this shows that you are hard to please, and you should probably stick to a different kind of accommodation.

We had a great stay at Lydia’s cottage. We loved the outdoor patio and how clean everything was. She communicated well and we had everything we needed for our stay in San Diego.

Lydia’s cute cottage was very beautiful, extremely clean and so well appointed. There were many food items in the kitchen for breakfast, including yogurt, muffins, coffee, tea and even biscotti. Also popcorn and tortilla chips. DirecTV has all the good movie channels like HBO, Ci…
