Bohemian Beach House for sure!
First off, apologies for the tardy review! We were totally taken by the pictures of this property and wanted a home away from home during our stay in San Diego. Ozlem provided precise instructions with regards to how to get to the property, where the allocated parking space was (although it admittedly took a couple of times round the block to find it in the dark), and most importantly how to get IN to the property - complete with photographs to guide you in through gates and gardens etc. Once inside, we were greeted by a nice welcoming postcard and bottle of wine, some contact details and a further map of the parking space location. We immediately recognised the place from the pictures. It’s a beautiful, quirky property full of character and a shrine to the owners travels and style. There are beautiful dark wood floors throughout, a very well equipped kitchen, huge living area, a great outdoor patio to allow people watching on Mission Boulevard. The bedroom occupies the mezzanine level and it a great space with a comfortable bed, desk/work area (if required), some cupboard space and a TV. The house is one block from the ocean, there are numerous cafes, restaurants, bars, grocery stores and rental shops in the immediate area. There are definitly a few bumps in the night…the refridgerator makes a crazy noise every now and then, the little water feature outside does its little creaky thing all night long and any time a large vehicle goes along Mission Boulevard at high speed there is definitely a bit of a shake in the building…but that’s all good once you get used to it! That and the crowd at Guava Beach Bar on certain nights, but hey, you can't be in amongst the 'buzz' of a place without a little noise right? If you want extreme serenity…then rent a cottage in the country! Any criticisms…well nowhere is really perfect, but nothing major at all here. A few lightbulbs out here and there, a few remote controls needing new batteries, and check out time of 10am is a little too early also. Would happily return to and recommend this property. Its very comfortable, unique, well maintained, in a fantastic location, with a friendly professional owner. Thanks Ozlem!!!
