“Zen house”
Reviewed April 11, 2016 for a stay in March 2016
1
person found this review helpful

My husband and I always rent houses when we travel as he always stays in motels when working and does not like to do so when on vacation. This home is so comfortable and relaxing we did not hardly leave it. You can definitely tell that Tamara and Craig has put so much love into making people feel as though they can just relax and Zen out. The sitting areas were so awesome with lights and water fountains that come on with timers. We just kept going outside and sitting in the front yard and then as the sun moved we would sit in the backyard. Inside was very clean and cozy. We rode the bikes around the neighborhood and felt very safe. The house has inspired me to come home and go to work on my very own Zen space in my yard. Thank You so much Tamara and Craig for sharing your little piece of heaven with us. we will be back for sure!

“beautiful house rental”
Reviewed March 30, 2015 for a stay in March 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We rented this home for six days in March. Our goal was to have a place with a yard, as we travelled with a toddler. The front yard has beautiful flowers, the back yard has a shade tree, hammock, patio with ample furniture. The rear yard has a grill, which we used to prepare a backyard feast for some relatives who live nearby and came to visit.

The house is in a residential neighborhood, which for us was a plus -- we did not want a to stay in an area with noisy students on spring break. However this means that there is a duty to respect the neighbors. The house is a few blocks from a park with a beach and playground on the bay. There's a continuous sidewalk on the bay that goes on for miles. It's great for strollers (and I'd guess bikes). It is also walkable (about 1.5 miles) to the Pacific. For both journeys, the sidewalks mostly had ramps at the corners, again good for strollers.

We met the owners on arrival. They were very friendly and helpful -- nice people, offering great suggestions on what to see and do. They supplied a bottle of wine (nice touch), coffee, salt, pepper, some cooking oil, paper towels, aluminum foil, a good assortment of kitchen gear.

The house did not have a washer and drier -- there is laundry service on Grant St that will do laundry with same day ten around for about $1.25/lb -- for a family of four a week's washing was about $64.

The overall the house is of a generation that is typical of the area. It's very "old school cool", I'd guess from the 50's or 60's. I'd call the decor Bhuddist. The interior furnishings are leather. the floors are tile and hardwood, so we did not have to obsess over a child's spills, and instead could relax, knowing that clean up is simple. TV had Uverse, The home had internet. The bedrooms are 60's sized, not super sized. The kitchen is roomy. The Fridge is a new large side by side. The stove is gas, clean and functional. The cabinets are original, painted, clean and nicely lined. The sink seems original, but has a disposer. There is a portable dishwasher.
All plumbing fixtures throughout the home are new.

Parking is on-street. There were no problems finding a spot, even when returning at night.

“A Perfect Vacation at an Equally Perfect Location”
Reviewed March 17, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

people found this review helpful

After scheduling a one week vacation in San Diego to escape the cold and snow of Chicago we had the great good fortune of stumbling upon the ideal place to stay. Our gracious hosts, Tamara and Craig could not have been more accommodating. They touched base with us before our trip began to see if we had any questions and once there they met us at the door with keys in hand. They showed us a notebook they had compiled with all the information anyone might need including excellent selections for nearby restaurants. The photos accurately depict this most comfortable home but what the photos cannot convey is the wonderful solitude and fragrances offered up in the patio area. There is a fully functional kitchen, grill outside, flat screen tv, and more than enough room to spread out. They also provided bicycles which we used daily for morning rides along the beach which is a mere two blocks away!!!
Since we only had a week to explore San Diego it was important to find a location centrally located. The home is just a 10-15 minute ride from the airport. All of the attractions any first timers like ourselves would like to see are a short drive. Merely by way of example, we visited the San Diego Zoo, San Diego Zoo Safari, La Jolla, Sea World, Coronado, Mission Bay area, a boat tour of the bay and the Midway,to name but a few. Each and every one an easy drive.
Should we return to the area I couldn't imagine staying anywhere but here.

“Sweet place to stay”
Reviewed December 29, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

person found this review helpful

We are a family with two young kids, parents and even a disabled adult. We had a great time to stay in the place. The house has everything you need during the stay. Plus, Tami and her husband both are super nice persons.

Sleep: the house has plenty of beds. The kids loved the bunk bed. Especially my five year old always stayed in his upper level bed and played during the night time. They also enjoyed the Foosball in the kids' room.

Cooking: I was worried before I went there, because I noticed that the house doesn't seem to have a big fan over their oven. We are Asians and we like to do pan fry a lot. But it turned out great with their ceiling fan and oven fan system. No smell but we still kept our cooking habits.

Bathing: the water in the bathroom and bathing area is super powerful. That was a relax after a busy travel day. Plus, Tami even prepared Shampoo and bath gel for you.

Front and back yard: these are the places you cannot skip. They are so pretty and are exactly like what the photos described. The flower or plant fence has a nice isolation to the neighbors. Each room in the house has a lot of windows. Each window will lead you to the pretty front and back yard views. In the back yard, they have BBQ oven and fire place. Every place has the necessary stuff you can start to have fun. Even though you do nothing, it's a great time to spend in the yards.

Transportation: It's close to everything. We went grocery shopping nearby with trade jore, vons etc. We had a short car driving to sea world and beaches. We walked to the mission inner beach park. It's a short and safe walk.

Host: Both Tami and Craig are easy going persons. They met us at the front and showed us everywhere in the house. Even they prepared a good tutorial book for neighborhood area. They gave us a bottle of wine as gift. My husband enjoyed it during the stay.

There is nothing we can complain with the house. It was our best house rental experience ever.
