Located in a lovely suburb with no need for a hire car as Uber services the area real well. Property was real quaint, clean and quiet. The owner came to meet us like old family and was a pleasure to stay at her residence.

“Comfy stay”

We had a great time here. Although we never got to actually meet, Catherine was always available for questions and we were quite comfortable during the stay.

The only downsides was that the blinds for the giant window in front of the bathtub was broken. We used our car visor to cover it up! (Otherwise you feel a bit exposed)
There was also a torn curtain on one of the entry doors, making one side quite sheer but nobody ever went to the backyard so you do still have a sense of privacy.

The overall touches to the bungalow was great however. Catherine left us wine, snacks, and breakfast foods. The bathroom was stocked with towels, soaps, hair products, and candles! Theres a plug in fan and a heater too. The bed is low but it was perhaps my favorite. The blankets were so fluffy I slept like a rock ! Overall we had a nice stay and a memorable time

“It's as wonderful as it sounds.”
Reviewed 30 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My boyfriend and I spent two nights here and didn't want to leave. Catherine was so friendly and welcoming, and although this is basically her backyard, it's all yours and feels very private. The price alone makes it worthwhile, but the best part is that it doesn't feel like you're skimping because it really is a beautiful space. It was also great to have snacks and a parking spot. Location is nice -- right near a school, so a good neighborhood, but also was just 15 or so minutes from most local places we went (Coronado, downtown).

We would definitely come back! Thank you, Catherine!

“So much more than promised!”
Reviewed 23 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I can't say enough about Catherine and her Balinese bungalow. It was everything she described and more. Her personal touches abound from the decor to the thoughtful snacks, treats and wine left for us. Really just something for everyone. She does an exceptional job covering all the bases. Even though the bungalow is part of her home you have so much privacy it is wonderful. It was a true oasis and we can't wait to go back!

“Very nice - but close to the owner's actual home”

Catherine was very sweet. She supplied us some snacks and breakfast foods. She told us to text her or call her if we needed or wanted anything else. When we arrived she walked us through how to use everything that was available to us (the gas fire pit, the hot tub, etc)

That being said, I felt odd about how close to Catherine's house the vacation rental was located. It's truly her guest house (which I did not completely understand from the description on Tripadvisor or any of the other reviews that I read) and it's just directly outside of her house. When walking out of the guest house and out to our rental car we had to walk by the side of the house where we could see into the windows of Catherine's home.

Also, the bathroom was large and spacious, but there was no available standing shower. There was a bathtub with a shower head but it was not mounted, so in order to use it we had to hold it up. You cannot take a typical shower in this bathroom.

Additionally, Catherine gave us a key but the doors didn't ever really lock. You could very easily get into the guest house if you wanted to without a key. And the doors had sheer curtains on them so in the morning the sun would come into the doors and wake you.

The patio was AMAZING; by far the best part of the rental! It has a lovely gas fire pit and hot tub. We spent quite a bit of time out on the porch enjoying the beautiful San Diego weather.

Liked best: The patio. It was lovely and we spent most of our time out there.
Liked least: The location of the house was much closer than I realized from the post to Catherine's home.
