“Old and Tired”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We spent a week at Rose Cottage and found it to be rather tired and none-too-clean. Someone had clearly been/stayed in the cottage since the cleaning crew had been through, for the bed was rumpled and really unmade... and garbage was absolutely overflowing from the two garbage cans. Walking across the hardwood floors, one left footprints/tracks in the dust. Towels in the bathroom had obviously been used by someone and the sink/tub were not clean. We called the rental agency and they came out the next morning to do a crash cleaning. The fenced yard was nice for our dog and there is some water view from a side sitting room. It was not clear to us upon renting that the 2nd bedroom is in an unattached garage, rather than connected to the house. I guess we should have read the description closer. The flowers on the fence are beautiful. We would not stay here again.

Management Response
Jun 12, 2013
The Rose Cottage was professionally cleaned prior to this guest's stay, but an un-scheduled painting appointment resulted in a few hand towels that were left slightly damp on a towel rack in the bathroom, likely due to the painter washing his hands. All the bathroom towels were replaced with new clean towels, and the floors were swept and mopped as soon as we were notified that this guest was not happy with the cleanliness of the house. The garbage bin was full from a previous guest because this guest arrived just prior to the City of San Diego's scheduled pick up day. We immediately removed the garbage in the bin for this guest. This home is a charming 100 year old ocean view one bedroom home and the second bedroom is located in a converted garage outside of the main home. The description indicating that the second bedroom is not inside the cottage, was clearly indicated in the websites as well as in the lease agreement.
