“GREAT time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We stayed here in May 2013, and it was fantastic. Glory is exceptionally friendly and offers a warm stay at her beautiful Inn. The breakfasts were delicious and she is very accommodating with the menu/time frame. The living area is very spacious and the view is AMAZING. 10/10 would recommend.

We stayed here in August last year for a few nights. Great little B & B. Breakfasts were really good. Glory was very welcoming and helpful. Would definitely recommend this. The only thing I would say is that the drive is VERY steep so be prepared!

We had a wonderful stay at Glory Giffin's Holiday House Bed and Breakfast in Point Loma. Glory is a very warm and welcoming host. She went out of her way to help us when we had to stay 4 extra days because of cancelled flights due to Hurricane Sandy.
The house itself is very comfortable, with an excellent view of the area.
Glory cooked a different breakfast every day, and it was all delicious.
I would definitely recommend this excellent bed and breakfast, and we expect to go back whenever we are in the area.

We have stayed with Glory several times, introduced her to our sons as they travel with us, told our friends about this wonderful place. Upon entering, you are in the patio area, facing a beautiful tiled pool and hot tub. You turn right into the living room with a stunning view of the bay and the bridge to Coronado, even more spectacular when lighted up at night. The two largest bedrooms have floor-to-ceiling windows with the same view. Bedding is comfortable and the beds have good mattresses. Bathrooms are well-appointed with thoughtful small versions of favorite products. The best part is breakfast. Each day has a new delight, and she does an amazing job of accomodating different dietary restrictions. It's a wonderful place.

Room Tip: The three rooms facing the bay have amazing views.

After dealing with Hotel Circle exorbitant generic room rates in the last two years during the height of conference season it was time to move on to a personable B&B. My associates and I really enjoyed our stay at Holiday House. As many of the patrons mentioned the hill top view is GORGEOUS, Glory's cooking is excellent enough to waive your diet and let go, the rooms are clean and inviting. The place has a cozy retro Ralph Lauren sort of feel that'll make you at ease. During breakfast all the dining guests I've experienced has been very cordially and provided helpful tips about getting around town or sharing a stimulating conversation.

Before you check out be sure to hit the pool and jacuzzi to relax your long drive or flight. Also if Glory is off to bed and you're still in the mood to stay in the hot tub for awhile give her the head's up how long. Apparently, the jacuzzi is on a manual timer.

There's couple of affordable eateries at night if you prefer to avoid the chain restaurants. Supannee House of Thai is quite tasty and couple doors away is a intimate Wine Bar. Or hit the street vendors in Shelter Island near the beach for lunch/ dinner they make a mean Philly cheese steak sandwich.

We spent 4 nights in the Captains Quarters, a very large king bedroom with a high wood ceiling, TV, closet, lounge area, balcony and huge master bathroom complete with jacuzzi tub. The bedding was very comfortable, and the bathroom was well stocked with the exception of a kleenex box. Other members of our group stayed in the queen room/ twin bedroom suite. That is a great value for a family. Breakfasts were hearty, and were served on her schedule, usually around 8:45-9am. I had informed the owner of my gluten-free diet prior to arriving, and she accomodated me very nicely. If you want a specific time to eat you need to ask for it ahead of time. Loved the Point Loma location, bay views, and quaint decor. We did not use the pool or outdoor jacuzzi but they looked inviting. My only negative is that the door to our room did not lock, and since there are 2 other roooms in the B&B I think that is a must (that is why I gave it a Very Good rating instead of Excellent). We enjoyed our stay and the owner's hospitality.
