Great Stay at Paul's. The apartment had everything that is needed for one week holiday. Our one year old baby girl learned to go down the stairs there...now she master it! Paul was very responsive and very nice.
Paul's Place was great! I enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi very much! Paul was very attentive and was checking in me with on a regular basis to make sure my needs were met. Thanks so much Paul!
The reservation was canceled 169 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Paul was a great host, he provided all the info needed for us to enjoy the visit to San Diego & kept calling almost daily to check if things were right. sure will go back as the area where the apt is located is very nice and close to all within 30 mins drive.
We had a wonderful stay at Paul’s place. Everything was exactly as depicted in the photos/description of the townhouse. Very well appointed, clean, quiet and in a great location - minutes from the beaches, hiking, and shopping. It's a perfect place for a family (we stayed with our three kids who BTW loved the Wii games) Paul provided us with all our needs and was very responsive. I would highly recommend him and his lovely home.
We visited San Diego for Thanksgiving to make our Marine son and several of his buddies the Thanksgiving dinner they missed last year when they were deployed. Paul was made aware of this and seemed eager to accommodate any needs we might have. He took pictures of his cookware so that we would know what he had and offered to purchase any items we needed. We asked if he had any mixing bowls, which he didn't, but said he would pick some up. There weren't any there when we got there.
We've previously stayed in other privately owned vacation rental properties, however have never rented through Airbnb. We were surprised when we arrived at Paul’s home to find out that he lived there and stayed elsewhere when he had it rented. This wasn't mentioned in the description.
The following are some short comings we found during our stay:
switch plates visibly dirty
dried food spill in microwave
kitchen counter crumbs/dirty
dishes in the dish drainer (at least they were clean)
refrigerator interior dirty; full of outdated juices, breads, and shriveled up produce; no room for our food
couldn't find the listed slow cooker; Paul brought it over; covered with dried food
open bag of fresh cat poop next to recycling receptacle on the deck
no empty drawers in bedrooms or bathrooms for our things
no hand towels in any bathrooms
almost empty soap dispenser(that was more water than soap) in main level bathroom-no refill available
washcloths that were left out had hair on them (gross)
both showers had a lot of personal items left behind; numerous shampoo bottles, lufa, razor, 3 used bars of soap (yuck); hardly any room for our stuff
shower floor looked as if it needed a scrub brush and bleach
had to hunt for toilet paper when it ran out; it wasn’t in the bathroom
assumed the comforter on the bed was ivory at one time. It was dingy and dirty; a place you definitely didn’t want to lay clean clothes
grill smoked for 45 minutes to burn the “crud” off
got locked in master bath; had to disassemble doorknob in order to escape (Paul admitted afterwards that knob had been “sticking”)
got surprised by Paul’s daughter walking in on us on last day there
stairs leading to garage cluttered with “stuff”- tripping hazard
garage also cluttered-had to clear a path to be able to walk around car without tripping
Overall our stay was enjoyable and Paul seemed friendly and was prompt with his communication. He had a nice home, which was in a convenient location. We wouldn't recommend this to anyone who likes to stay in a place that’s clean and uncluttered; certainly not for anyone over age 65 due to the tripping hazards in the garage. I think Paul needs to get some help staging his rental and needs to get a professional cleaner.
Paul was a great host. He was attentive, flexible and was quick to answer any questions. We really enjoyed our stay in his townhouse, and it really beat the experience of staying in a hotel by far. We used it as a base to check out San Diego, so it was great to be located in an area that was close enough to the freeway, but also near enough to shopping, restaurants and Del Mar beach for when we didn't want to drive any long distance.
Paul has a great place and was a gracious host. The location is awesome within walking distance of several parks/playgrounds and the Del Mar Heights Shopping Plaza. We really enjoyed exploring the area and would highly recommend.
Paul was a great host and the townhome was the perfect place for my family. The home was clean and super convenient to all that San Diego has to offer. Paul was great in making us feel comfortable and making sure we had everything we needed before and during our stay. Would definitely recommend staying at Paul's home.
This Labor Day weekend 4 of us went to SD to attempt surfing for the first time ever. We were one couple and 2 friends, this rental had 2 bedrooms/3 beds, so, very comfy for everyone!!
Paul was a terrific host, offering suggestions for places to eat, cheapest place to rent/go surfing, things to do and what's what in SD to help us have the best trip possible. Walking distance from a cute shopping area with restaurants/bars and located 20 min driving from both beaches we visited (Oceanside and La Jolla Shores) - Amazing beaches for learning to surf.
The two floor home is located in a nice complex complete with pool and grill. We were able to grill at night after a long day of surfing and relaxing in the sun before curling up around his comfortable living room to laugh the night away. Paul has phone chargers all over the house, a full entertainment system, and fast wifi.
We would definitely recommend Paul as he is a stand up, friendly host and his place is a great place to call home when you go to San Diego.
great guest, pleasant to deal with and very clean. would recommend to other hosts!
Paul and his work colleagues stayed at my 3 bedroom Union Square/GV/East Village Duplex Townhouse for 4 days. They were very respectful of my property, they treated the Townhouse like their own and communicated well with me. I highly recommend Paul and any member of his group, they are great guests and if you get the chance to get Paul as a guest, Do Not hesitate to accept.
Paul was great renter. Him and his friends left my house clean and tiddy. Paul called me everytime he had a question. You can trust him to be a great guest.
I've know Paul for over a year now and I struggle to think of anyone more social, interesting, and fun to be around. He's incredibly friendly and approachable and is hands-down the guy you would want to bring as your plus one to any party or event. No one can make better conversation or keep the party going longer. Best travel partner and always makes the most out of every situation, super positive and optimistic and simply a genuine and good-hearted human being.
Paul will ensure you have a comfortable, fun filled stay and always gives the best recommendations on local hot spots and dining. Be sure to take his advice! His beautiful home is clean and comfortable and super close to tons of great restaurants and bars and just a five or ten minute drive from beautiful beaches.
