Ok overall but some things to be aware of if you're sensitive to noise
We stayed 10 days at the property during the summer. The location is ideal, close to everything and a short hike away from Balboa Park. The owners are nice and friendly, the place is clean and functional. Now there are two important things you need to know about the house: 1. Besides the chicken (quiet) there were other pets outside: a tortoise in the front yard and cats in the back yard. If you have allergies forget about enjoying the outdoor sofas, the cats love them. 2. This house actually has a partial second story above the garage and master bedroom which is another rented unit. So privacy is very questionable since above tenants will go up and down the stairs that overlook the backyard. But the biggest problem for us was step noise above the master bedroom. Upstairs tenants were early birds and woke us up every single morning they were here. I know I'm sensitive to noise, to give an example there is also a DVR in this bedroom and the humm of the fan and hard drive bothered me as well in the first couple nights. So everyone is different but at minimum I would have expected the upstairs unit to be in the description. Specially when it says 'private' We would never have put that much money to rent the place had we known about this. We offered to leave a couple days early with refund but the owners only offered to ask upstairs tenants to make less noise. They were a very quiet senior couple, apart from asking them to hoover above the floor there was not much those people could do.
