“Carolyn, your house met our every need. It was AMAZING!”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed here last year for the San Diego half marathon and the location of the house was so convenient. Not to mention the house was beautiful and it had everything we needed. We were able to grill and cook without any problems. It definitely helped to fill our needs and was so much more!

Thank you Carolyn!

“Fantastic View”

I booked Carolyn's Bay View Home to serve as our base during the Comic-Con. My daughter, son-in-law, friends, and I all enjoyed watching the fireworks from the front balcony. I am almost certain that our view of the fireworks was better than the view for the Sea World guests. During the day, just looking out at Mission Bay and the ocean beyond contributed to a feeling of comfort and calm. My daughter delighted in the plantings, wishing that they could survive in Colorado.
The house is very well situated making it easy to reach Mission and Pacific Beach, the Gaslamp Quarter, other San Diego sites, and attractions up the coast toward Los Angeles. We generally were making the short trek to the convention center. If it weren't for the traffic and road closures caused by Comic-Con, it would have taken literally only minutes to reach the convention center, the airport, and the Gaslamp Quarter. We took a day at the San Diego Zoo, also readily reachable from the house.
We most certainly did not need air conditioning because the ceiling fans and cross currents kept the house comfortable. In fact, some nights, it was chilly outside - great sleeping weather.
My tips for those considering renting the house: This house would not work well for someone who has difficulty with stairs. You enter the house on a floor with two bedrooms and a bathroom. To reach the kitchen, dining area, living area, and the master bedroom, you must climb a typical length flight of stairs. The bedroom with the bunk beds is small. It would work best for children. That said, two grown men did share the room for our stay. The only access to the bathrooms is through bedrooms. That is not a problem for families and friends who are comfortable with each other. Be sure not to lock the screen door; you cannot reach the keypad if the screen door is locked (I know from experience). Before you go to the grocery store, check the cupboards. There is quite a lot there, including spices. Although unlikely, you may have a problem opening the washer door, especially if the power has gone out at some point. If you set the washer to rinse and spin, the door should open when it is done.
Carolyn has the house professionally cleaned and has her real estate management company check the house over between renters. If you do have any problems, just give Carolyn a call. She is wonderful!
I hope that you enjoy the house as much as we did.

• Thank Carolyn your house is wonderful. A really great place to stay. Excellent location and the house was in terrific shape, lots of space and had everything you needed. Detailed instruction given for address, entry procedure, wireless internet connection and do and don't of house. The view was spectacular. Above Mission Bay and Sea World. Every night there was a fireworks show courtesy of Sea World. We enjoyed the show from the front windows. Terrific access to freeway and excellent walking distance to Mission Bay park.

“Location and quality wrapped in comfort.”
Reviewed 18 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This property was easy to get to from the airport. Located a short distance(about 20 minutes) North of the airport on I-5. Loved having a garage for the car. Located on a hill overlooking MISSION BAY the bedrooms face East overlooking a well landscaped garden. We started every morning with coffee on the private patio in the company of the birds. Every evening we watched the sun set on Mission Bay while having drinks on the balcony.
The living area has stunning views of Mission Bay.
The house has a contemporary interior with a very comfortable wraparound white leather sofa, large flat screen TV with a huge selection of stations. Dining area is comfortable for 6. Well equipped kitchen. Suitable for 4 adults and two children. Walked to Mission Bay Park everyday. Also discovered nearby express bus to City Center stopped nearby, Made it easy to get to sights downtown such as Old Town and Balboa Park. This house had everything we needed. We would go back in a heartbeat!
