You get what you pay for
As they say, "You get what you pay for". This rental unit is little cheaper but not the one you may like to spend nights at. We arrived more than 2 hours late (the owner had communicated us in the morning of arrival day that the dryer was broken so it would take more time to get the house ready) but the house was still not ready. The whole house including the toilets had such a bad smell that it was not possible for us to stay there. We contacted the owner and he said the cleaning lady would show up soon. After waiting for 30-40 mins when nobody showed up, I contacted the owner again, and he said that he couldn't do much and If I want I could look for another accomadation and hang off the phone in a very rude manner. With my parents and 2 years baby it was not easy to find another accomadation in that last minute which had a full kitchen.After waiting for about 30 more mins a friend of the owner showed up and she was very polite and apologized for everything and said that she would clean the house in one hour. We waited in the other unit while she was cleaning the house. She did a very good job but the house was in such a bad condition that we could still feel the bad smell. Probably the house had not been well kept and cleaned thoroughly for a long time. Finally the house was ready for us to enter about 7 pm. We had literally lost precious hours of our 2 day visit to San Diego. I will not recommend this unit to anyone. The only positives were the location of the house, two toilets in the unit, and ease of communication with the owner which apparently didn't end well.
