Exactly what we were hoping for...
Our expectations for a vacation are our family gets to take a break from our usual hectic lives, blend in with the local culture, and thereby get to enjoy the culture as much as the locals do. Therefore, living in a fancy hotel with daily maid service and spending dawn to dusk rushing around at amusement parks is the exact opposite of what we'd like to do. This rental is a Craftsman architecture home, with some well-crafted extensions. We especially enjoyed using the kitchen. As it turns out, more importantly than any of the tangibles, was meeting with Ed, the property owner. Ed is well-versed and an active member in the local music and food scene. On our first full day, he asked us what we were looking for, and gave us some great advice where we could find. Much of the food we were looking for was within walking distance, which in San Diego I consider as less than one mile. Downtown San Diego is easy driving distance. After Ed gave us some great help understanding the local scene, he kept in touch while respecting our desired level of privacy perfectly. I would highly recommend. If you're a musician, I suggest discussing San Diego with Ed for possibly some interesting opportunities.
