Our hosts, Ronn and Dotti are very warm and hospitable. The house was just as advertised and in a great location. We were very happy with our stay.
We loved staying with Ronn and Dotti. It felt like we were visiting long lost family or friends. The home was described - cozy, clean, and comfortable. I'm so glad we stayed with them instead of at a hotel. We would love to visit them again if we are in San Diego. I can highly recommend them!
Ronn and Dotti are amazing hosts. They are there to cater for all your needs, while leaving you privacy and letting you enjoy the warmth and hospitality of their guest house. The cottage is well-equiped and allowed us (a family of four) to enjoy a nice backyard patio in an English garden setting, enough to incite us to either cook or order take-out instead of eating in busy restaurants. This being said, the location (North Park) is PERFECT, as it is near a number of small neighbourhood cafés and restaurants, as well as a public pool (10$ for a family of four) and 5 minutes drive from the Zoo, which was great for us. We went early in the morning, then had lunch at the Gartons', then a swim at the pool, then back to the zoo in late afternoon when there is less people. It is also a short 10 minute drive to Coronado Island, and to the airport. Thank you Ronn and Dotti for your warm hospitality.
A very tidy home on a quiet residential street, this was a delightful experience. The hosts were fantastic, offering good advice without being intrusive. They were extremely accommodating, providing us with a 'pack and play' for our infant daughter to sleep in. My only minor dissatisfaction was the bed. It was two twin mattresses and boxsprings pushed together. Both were individually comfortable, but there was a "canyon" between my spouse and I. I would highly recommend the hosts, and will book with them again next time I travel to Southern California.
Ron and Dotti made me feel welcome as soon as I arrived. The property was exactly as the listing described. The neighborhood was quiet, safe, and conveniently located. We enjoyed relaxing on the patio surrounded by morning glories and succulents. Ron and Dotti even pulled a double stroller, booster seat, and high chair out for our young children to use during our vacation.
We wanted to stay longer, just to hang out with Ron, Dotti, and their family! We felt right at home. What a blessing to stay at Garton Guest Cottage!
This was our first airbnb experience, and it was so pleasant. We had originally made hotel reservations for the weekend, but made a last-minute decision to try airbnb for a location that was cozier, and closer to downtown San Diego. I am so glad we made the change. This was exactly what I had hoped for.
Ronn and Dotti kept in touch with us right away regarding our arrival, making sure that everything was ready when my son and I arrived. They were also more than willing to provide information about the neighborhood (places to eat, where to catch the bus).
The room was perfect for us...a cozy place to unwind after a long day at the zoo and Comic-Con. And, they welcomed us to relax in their yard, which was great!
The location is great, too. You can walk to the San Diego Zoo in about 30 minutes, or get all the way to downtown in under an hour. The house is about a 5-minute walk from University avenue, with many great restaurants (City Tacos was our favorite), and a bus that takes you directly downtown.
Ronn and Dotti and AMAZING! The were excellent about communicating quickly with us while we planned our trip and then answered questions we had about arrival times, etc. Once we arrived, Dotti came to welcome us and she set all of us at ease immediately. We had a bit of wacky week sightseeing with two toddlers, but we just loved coming home to the comfort of the cottage. It was compact, certainly, but felt big enough for 4 of us. There were small conveniences like hooks to hang clothes on, a little laundry basket and lots of towels and pillows that made it clear that Ronn and Dotti are seasoned hosts. They even pulled out a high chair, pack n play, and double stroller for us. So thoughtful! The guest house / cottage is close enough to the main house that we felt comfortable contacting them if we needed them, but were given plenty of space / privacy too. The neighborhood was quiet and so convenient for getting to Balboa Park and other San Diego sights. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay and wish Ronn, Dotti and their lovely family all the best. They are delightful!!
We stayed at Garton's cottage for two weeks. It was simply beautiful, quiet and clean. The cottage is cozy and well furnished. The garden is awesome with lovely trees, flowers and outdoor sitting. Gartons are absolutely warm and welcoming.
Staying at Ronn and Dottis place was the perfect choice.nice neighborhood next to Balboa Park and the both were awesome hosts! We had a great time in San diego. The only thing you have to think about is that the room is a little bit small so you have to be organized well if you bring a lot of baggage with you. But I would definitely stay there again
We´ve been in Ronn and Dotti´s flat for around 1 month.
They were very nice and helpful and always there for us. The flat might be the quietest place in San Diego which is absolutely perfect when you have children. It is located directly at balboa park and offers access to several children playgrounds and a cheap and very nice swimming pool. They have a huge patio and 2 very nice grandchildren who liked to play with our daughter.
We can definetely recommend this flat - you might meet the nicest people in San Diego :)
Ronn and Don were without any doubt some of the most welcome guests we had the honor of hosting. They are nice and respectful. It was easy to communicate by emails and phone. It was a pleasure to meet them. It was so beautiful to know that they have appreciated our beloved city and our little flat as we do. We can recommend them to anyone! They left our apartment clean and even better than way they found it.
