My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Marcela's place. She and her boyfriend were excellent hosts, meeting us when we arrived and checking in via text messages during our trip to make sure we were doing well. The apartment is lovely and exactly as advertised. I'd definitely recommend staying here.
Marcela's unit was just as advertised! Everything went extremely smoothly. The bed was also extremely comfortable which made for a great stay.
What was FANTASTIC was how attentive Marcela was during our stay. We had some issues while leaving (Our car battery died in her garage, and we accidentally left the garage clicker inside the unit, which is required to LEAVE the garage). While we didn't need her to stop by, she was extremely accommodating and offered to stop by if necessary.
I'd definitely recommend Marcela and her apt any time.
Marcela and Franco are gracious and efficient hosts. This is our second time visiting San Diego and staying at their Hillcrest apartment; it is conveniently located by many markets, public transportation and the Balboa park. The kitchen is well appointed; we tend to "eat in" more than we eat out. We were able to prepare our meals with great ease. We had breakfast every morning on the patio. The apartment complex is quiet and quite safe. I give them my highest recommendation and my husband and I appreciate their thoughtfulness and hospitality.
I was looking for an apt for my mom who was visiting from overseas and the whole experience went smoothly and without problems. Marcela and Franco were very helpful and responsive, always going making themselves available. We never has trouble getting in touch with them. The apt is exactly how it looks in the pictures, and my mom felt at home immediately. I reccommend this place wholeheartedly!
Me and my boyfriend stayed at Marcelas place for 4 months during my exchange semester and we absolutely loved the place! It had everything you need for a longer stay (e.g. indoor parking, laundry room in complex, a big kitchen, comfortable bed, dependable wifi and lots of closets) and the condo is within walking distance to Balboa Park and the Zoo, the lively University Ave in Hillcrest with lots of restaurants, and nice grocery stores like Ralphs/Whole Foods/Trader Joe’s. If you have a car, you'll have everything San Diego has to offer within a short drive!
Marcela (and Franco) was an excellent host! She helped me through the whole process since it was my first time using AirBnB, responded quickly, and was very flexible with all our needs. She was just a text away if we needed any help with the condo and always resolved things extremely quick. She also checked in once in a while to make sure everything was running smoothly (so nice!).
I would highly recommend Marcela and her condo for longer and shorter stays!
Everything was perfect ! We enjoyed our stay at Marcela's place!
We had a great experience with this listing! When our schedules for check-in shifted a bit, Marcela was responsive, flexible, and accommodating. The condo matched our expectations, based on the listing. We had a rental car for the weekend, so we got to make use of the private, gated garage with an assigned spot. We also took advantage of the wifi and laundry without issues. We were a short walk from some great cafes and brunch spots. All in all, a great first-time airbnb experience, and would definitely recommend to a friend!
Marcela is a great commutator. Her place is in an excellent neighborhood. Lots of super markets and restaurants in the area. Private parking was great and so was the patio. Rooms are nice and clean with great ventilation in a quiet neighborhood.
Marcela and her husband Franco were excellent hosts! The check-in and check-out process was super easy! Both Marcela and Franco were very quick to respond to our questions. The location of the condo was excellent and made visiting the surrounding area of Balboa Park very convenient. We liked how close it was to the San Diego Zoo and the museums in Balboa Park. The gated & secured parking was an added bonus for the week we were there
We enjoyed our week's stay at Marcela's condo very much. Marcela and her husband greeted us punctually for check in and were friendly and helpful. Living/dining area bigger than we expected. We had six for dinner one night, no problem. Kitchen well appointed. Bed was very comfortable. Lots of closet, drawer space. Internet worked every time. A/C helpful on hot days. Loved having indoor parking, laundry room in complex. Very quiet, very safe, and good privacy.
Neighborhood was perfect for us. One block from daughter, walkable to Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, tons of restaurants/coffee shops in Hillcrest. We also walked to Balboa Park Museums and Zoo.
We have been to SD many times so didn't need assistance, but Marcela was readily available by text. She texted us on day three to see how things were going. Check out was painless. We left keys on the counter after exiting the garage. All in all a great place to stay. Thanks, Marcela.
Marcela, one of my dearest friends, is a terrific host and the most genuine and giving person you will ever meet. She always has a positive outlook on life and with her happy and bubbly personality you will always feel welcome at her house. Her cute one-bedroom condo is a gem and is located in one of the most hip and trendiest neighborhoods in San Diego. Recently remodeled and tastefully decorated by her and her boyfriend it is much better than any hotel suite you can ask for. You will be very fortunate if you are able to book Marcela's place. I've stayed in her condo multiple times and I always keep coming back.
