Luke said: What a beautiful home and amazing location. We were celebrating a family reunion and wanted somewhere very nice. We were not disappointed! We loved the pool, jacuzzi, and BBQ. The inside of the home was just as nice, comfortable and cozy. We found the beds and bedding to be very comfortable and high quality. Our hosts, both Gary and Jessica were so nice and welcoming, and easy to communicate with! They paid special attention to details and made our stay one of the best we have had!! We hope to return and highly recommend this home to others.”

Brian said: I’d like to start off by saying that Govanni is a wonderful host. We have had multiple AirBnB stays under our belt and Govanni has been one of the most attentive, responsive and amazing hosts we have ever encountered. The same can be said about his AirBnB. Since we arrived later in the evening, we were greeted by the wonderful lights of Downtown San Diego. The place was clean, modern, beautifully appointed and waaaay above the city!

The living room has beautiful floor to ceiling windows that stretch across the entire space which allows for breathtaking views of the city, both during the day and night. It also allowed for ample amounts of light during the daytime, even when overcast. The 2 balconies were surprisingly spacious and allowed for another option to enjoy the view from 20 floors up.

My favorite feature of the AirBnB were the giant windows in the 2 bedrooms. It was amazing to fall asleep and wake up to the hustle and bustle of the city. One of the rooms has the bed right next to the floor-to-ceiling window, so if falling asleep to the city lights is your thing this is the room to sleep in :). The location of the AirBnB was also very convenient. There are several coffee shops and grocery stores within walking distance. This beautiful spot coupled with an exceptional host really made our 4 day stay an amazing getaway.”

Marilyn said: “Casa Paradiso is everything & more! We were transparent with them about wanting to hold a small dinner party there & they graciously allowed us to. Upon arrival, everything was super clean. They are super accommodating & left us a cute bag, snacks & a fridge full of water! We were exhausted from all our errands and drive to SD so it made us smile for sure. The backyard space is absolutely perfect- outdoor bar, pool, mini golf course, outdoor bbq, tv, bar lights, & more!

The house has so many cool features to it & when I texted Dana, she responded immediately with an answer to help us out 🙂 The inside of the house was also so equipped with activities & we loved all the space. The balcony is absolutely breathtaking at night. Don’t forget to take advantage of that space & take pictures. Our other favorite feature in the house is the projector downstairs. We did not have leave the house all weekend :)”

Sarah said: “The perfect house in a perfect location. The house was big and comfortable with all the amenities and little touches you could need. It was especially great for children with lots of pool and sand toys, baby equipment like pack and play and monitor, and probably best of all was the cover for the pool and spa which gave us peace of mind with an active toddler wandering around. We loved walking to the beach in the morning, swimming in the pool in the afternoon and grilling in the evening. Highly recommended.”
