Perfect Weekend Getaway!

This property is wonderful! It was nicely appointed with everything one would need to feel at home, including snacks and drinks awaiting us in the fridge. The location is nice and quiet, but still conveniently close to everything. Our pups loved walking around the neighborhood, and spending a little time outside on the small balcony. My husband and I enjoyed walking around Balboa Island at sunset, and taking the ferry across the way to the Peninsula.

The property managers were incredibly helpful, and quick to respond to any questions.

As others have mentioned, the main area gets toasty, since there is no central A/C. But, with all the windows open, and fans on, a comfortable temperature can be attained .

We had a lovely stay, and would highly recommend this vacation rental!

We visited our daughter who lives just a few blocks from this apartment, so it suited us just fine.

We had a great stay, the place is cute, simple and user friendly.

My only complaint is the AC. One bedroom has a window unit but the central system doesn't seem to work. If it does then it does so poorly.

That aside, we had a great time.
