Cons: (very) uncomfortable bed, worn sheets, room can get hot without AC, no iron as advertised, no batteries for air mattress pump
Apartment was fine. Not very modern or polished - felt like a college rental. However, it was clean which is the most important thing. Court yard was not tended. Neighborhood was ok. Had some drifters walking around but it was a block away from some good restaurants and a 24 Mexican spot which is great.
Nice peaceful visit. All is as advertised and Alik is responsive and available. I would stay here again for sure. Thanks Alik!
Thanks and hope to see you soon. I wish all my guest were that laid back and easy to work with.
A nice little bungalow in Golden Hill. Best part about the house is probably the outside seating area. Neighborhood is good, with a couple taco spots and a convenience store about 5 min. away walking. Around the corner is an awesome bar, the Turf Club, and good pizza place (Pizzeria Luigi).
I stayed with two friends, and the space was a bit tight. Probably ideal for a couple, really. Also best to have a car. We were at a conference at the convention center, and it was tough (and expensive) to get back and forth b/t the house and the Gas Lamp. It's a 40 min. walk or a $10 taxi. There is a bus, but coordinating the bus schedule with the conference schedule was difficult.
Our group had such an amazing time staying at this property! Great location! Loved having the fire pit and garage to park in! Thank you so much!!
Great place in a solid neighborhood.
Yes everything was accurate. Clean towels and bed were good. The place was clean.
The studio was just as it appears in the photo, the parking space is quite small so you may need to park on the street. The Kitchen was ok, could use a frying pan and a few other cooking items but it worked for us. The area was within easy driving distance to everything and had convenient stores close. The neighborhood was not as quiet as I expected. the Firestation is close so you could hear the truck sirens and the neighbors were a bit loud and smoked under our window with the fan so we had to close it.
The apartment is okay.
When we arrived we had no problems getting in. The studio is okay for two. It looked clean but I would recommend a deep cleaning of some items such as couch or carpet, since they look a bit used and you have to sleep on it.
It got really hot in the house, 2 fans were okay though. One of the fans is laying on the floor and it was impossible to watch TV because of the noise. The Toilet has a defect and runs constantly if you dont fix it yourself. I didnt receive the FAQ email so I had to send textmsgs to Alik kindly asking for the wifi password. But he told me to look for a free wifi spot somewhere to look up the FAQ email (which I didnt receive) instead of simply providing me with the password.
Location is great.
The FAQ with the password was sent though airbnb long before the check in date. Either the new feature doesn't work (worked for me and all others) or the user could not figure it out.
With in easy reach of all the amenities. Very clean and comfortable
thanks. hope to see you back.
It was great to have Kean as a guest. They were great with communicating and were very friendly. Hope you enjoyed your stay!
Great communication, kept in touch when arrival time changed and check in was a breeze. They left the place spotless. Be happy to have them back!
Beautiful units and landscaping! I used to live near the Golden Hill units and have meals with friends there. Lovely place, just far enough from the downtown noise, but close enough for a nice walk to reach downtown restaurants and stores. Alik is talented artistically, so the spaces will be well decorated and furnished. He is also quick on repairs and keeps the units well maintained. Enjoy living in any of his locations!
Alik is an amazing host! Not only is he a wonderful person and a pleasure to know, but his vacation rentals are perfect! He really knows how to create a welcoming space for travelers. He has tastefully remodeled and decorated the units himself and has done an impeccable job. Everything that you could possibly need at home is here. Hidden Playa apartments are centrally located to everything. Downtown and other popular destinations are literally right down the hill. The property is in a great walking neighborhood with many restaurants, bars, and culture just steps away! I would recommend Alik and Hidden Playa to anyone looking for that special San Diego Getaway!
Alik is a gracious host with a knack for creating wonderful and comfortable spaces that feel like home the minute you walk in. The neighborhood is fantastic, hip and fun with many attractions, bars, restaurants within walking distance and a short driving distance to most of san diego's areas.
I would highly recommend this rental for anyone. Alik is friendly, helpful and accommodating. He will help with whatever you need and give you total privacy when you want it too. The perfect situation. :)
It is my pleasure to endorse such a great man. I have known Alik for well over a decade. He is a one-in-two-million kind of guy. Always friendly, outspoken, kind, and highly personable. Alik is the definition of integrity and is among the hardest-working and most creative people. It is his passion to serve your business needs, always exceeding your expectations. I highly recommend him as a friend, and as the most trustworthy business partner.
Alik and I have known each other for 8 years through various organizations and business ventures. He's well traveled and understands what it takes to satisfy individuals particular tastes and desires. Alik is an Exemplary Host & Master of Ceremonies! He's put together many fantastic gatherings and makes sure everybody is content and comfortable. He has great taste in art and furnishings and creates a unique ambiance for friends and strangers alike. I think he'll be a great asset to the hospitality industry in San Diego with his high energy and exuberance.
Alik is a lovely, caring, hard-working, talented and giving guy! I saw the great job he did remodeling and keeping up the units. He treats people A-OK too.
