A very quaint spot in a quiet neighborhood. Our host was available to us as needed and very responsive to our requests. Thank you for a an effortless trip!
Cool place and area. Got warm during the day/night.
John was a great host. Check in was very easy and the place was great when I arrived. Really nice and clean apartment, looks better than the pictures. He even went out of his way to save a spot for my car due to the crowdedness from the St. Patricks Day parade. The location is great, located right in Hillcrest with a bunch of good eateries and bars on 5th ave. The walk downtown was really pleasant and easy also. And two blocks away there's an awesome suspension bridge that you should check out if you stay here. Would definitely stay again.
John was available when we arrived and everything was ready for us. He and his wife were gracious hosts. We look forward to staying at this location on our next trip to San Diego.
John communicated well and gave us check-in instructions well before our arrival. The apartment was small but cosy. Beds were OK, a bit soft for a big guy like me but not at all a problem. Since we had rain and cold weather during our stay the cottage got a bit cold (John offered a second heater). The kitchen was well equipped and the location was very convenient close to restaurants in Hillcrest, Balboa Park and downtown. If we come back to San Diego we would gladly stay here again.
John was very responsive and accommodating for our short trip. His place was cozy and pet friendly. Location was nice with a good amount of street parking.
John's place is exactly as described. In a nice location with a really cool local market nearby where I picked up some blood oranges in the morning (about 4 blocks away).
No problems at all. Bed was comfortable. John was accommodating with check-in/check-out which I appreciate.
Pleasant experience overall.
Exactly what I needed for an overnight stay and it was so comfortable I would happily stay longer next time! John made things very simple and easy by providing details about where and where not to park and how to find the key and get in.
The location is great too, close to lots of cool restaurants!
Wonderful little guest room/cottage. It was a great little oasis in the city. Everything was clean and comfortable. Enjoyed the backyard hummingbirds. Easy connection to wifi. It was amazingly close to everything we wanted to do.
We couldn't have been more pleased with the cozy guesthouse. It was accurately described and had a very warm and homey feel about it. The location is superb with very short walking distance to all there is to offer in Hillcrest, yet far enough away to enjoy a quiet evening. There is also a cute market with a fabulous deli just steps away and it is only a short drive to downtown nightlife and a few blocks top Balboa Park.
The backyard is absolutely stunning It boasts an abundance of beautiful plant life and lovely hummingbirds that call it home. It also has a lovely deck with a table to enjoy cool evenings or leisurely afternoon meals.
But best of all were our spectacular hosts John and Nellie who were kind, knowledgeable, and helpful. We stayed twelve wonderful nights and without a doubt would stay again.
