This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the Petite Diamond. We love the location, kitchen, great wifi, laundry, and overall closeness to everything. We cook all of our own meals at home and Petite Diamond is perfect for this. Since San Diego was experiencing a VERY hot week we chose to grill nightly!!! The kitchen has all you need. We also used the beach chairs etc for afternoons on the beach. Having the laundry facilities is a must for us as we are either hiking or biking daily. The neighbors are quite nice as we spent some time with them while we were there. The garage is an added bonus. Parking on the street in Pacific Beach can be difficult so it is nice to be able to park the car in a safe place and know that you have a spot. The car stayed in the garage for the week as we used our bikes daily. All in all this is a "Diamond" of a place!

Owner's reply: Billye & Arline are welcome back any time! Lovely couple that knows how to vacation and respects our property! Those bikes add so much when it comes to enjoying our beach area and I'm glad you put them to good use...go green and save our environment! The loyalty reward, Valued Returning Guest Discount applies any time of the year, too. Hope to see you again soon. Cheers, Patti & The Great Escape Team

“Truly a Diamond! Perfect Place for our Girls Trip”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2015

From the first contact we had with Patti we knew it was going to be a great place for us to stay on our girls trip! Patti was Super Responsive both by email and phone. Wonderful to talk to an actual person-even better to be provided with Excellent Customer Service! Our trip to San Diego it was a must to be in a location that was safe for 4 girls (2 moms & 2 daughters). NEVER did we worry about safety! This property was Super Clean and had everything we needed including beach towels, chairs & a little buggy to get our stuff to the beach! If you looking for a spot where you will be guaranteed to be safe, able to walk to the beach and not have a worry this is the spot! THANK YOU PATTI!!! We will be back and soon this time with our hubbies! One last great highlight you are so close to EVERYTHING!

Owner's reply: These lovely ladies were not only perfect guests...they were a hoot! So much fun to talk to and I was so pleased I had the chance to meet them. More than welcome back any time and don't forget about your Valued Returning Guest Discount! See y'all soon!!

“First time trying a vacation rental-”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2015

This was the first time we tried a vacation rental and we are thrilled to find this place to stay. When you are away from home for a week it's nice to be able to stay somewhere where you can make your own meals at your own times. My husband and I and our two sons stayed for a week and it was also nice that we could bring our little dog with us. I was happy to find taco seasoning in the cupboard and mayo. in the fridge two things I forgot to pack. Having 2 tv's was a treat and there really are a ton of channels. The beach was only 3 blocks away and we walked there almost every day. Having the rolling cart, beach chairs and the boogie boards in the garage made those trips even more fun. The onsite laundry and the garage were appreciated and used, too. Thanks for the great place and we will be sure to look into more properties when we head out on our next vacation.

Owner's reply: It's always very satisfying to know you were instrumental in making a family's vacation successful; especially when the family has their first experience "outside the hotel-box", opting for a vacation rental home. This is a delightful location, so close to everything. Hope they plan on using their Valued Returning Guest Discount for their next Great Escape vacation!

“Home away from Home!”

My husband and I spent a week with our small dog at this cozy beach house. I loved the neighborhood as it was in a quiet residential area with a very short walk to all of the restaurants and shops on Garnet street as well as the beach. The garage, bikes, and beach chairs were a major plus. We only used the car twice as we biked to Sprouts, Trader Joe's, and Law Park for sunset yoga! The keyless entry was so nice as we used a code for all gates and doors and never worried about carrying or losing keys! Renting a house provides many more conveniences over renting a hotel for virtually the same price. The attached homes are quiet and soundproof - we never heard the families on either side of us. We enjoyed having a patio area with a barbeque for grilling and being able to sit outside in the beautiful weather with a glass of wine. We biked to the Farmer's Market and appreciated having a fully stocked kitchen to prepare our meals. This is a keeper and we hope to be back!

Owner's reply: We hope you come back, too, and remember to use your Valued Returning Guest discount when you make your next reservation! Thanks for leaving the property so nicely....you're always welcome! Cheers, Patti & the Great Escape Vacation Team

“Home at the beach!”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2015

This is a wonderful CLEAN place to stay so close to the beach. Met all of our needs. It was like being home at the beach! Community is very quiet and kitchen was stocked with everything you would need to entertain! We even had a BBQ with some friends! Beach chairs/coolers and everything you need for the beach was stored in the garage. Walking distance to everything in PB. Loved our stay and will most likely be back!

Just as advertised! Lovely place, nicely appointed. Well stocked with paper goods, quiet neighborhood, and close to shopping, and the beach. Great communication with rental company and easy to work with. I'd do it again.

Owner's reply: Your kind comments are greatly appreciated....and our thanks, too, for the care you showed this charming vacation getaway. To encourage your return, remember the Valued Returning Guest discount and come back soon!

“A relaxing vacation!”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2014

I stayed at the Petite Diamond rental for a week in July and wished I could have stayed longer...the property is perfectly appointed, in a nice quiet part of PB and absolutely lovely. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen perfectly stocked with necessary appliances etc. Having the bikes was also great as the grocery store is just a few blocks away. Wish I could have stayed longer!

Owner's reply: I wish Ms. Smith could have stayed longer, too...what a delightful guest and a perfect example of why I enjoy my job!! When she receives her deposit refund packet and realizes she will receive a Valued Returning Guest Discount on her next visit, we just might see her again!
