Professionally Managed - Great Stay
October 17, 2015
Professionalism in vacation property management is a lost art, but no here. Patti S. who manages this Charming Casita cares about the vacationers and the owners, and creates an atmosphere of satisfaction for both parties.
The casita was sparkling clean with space for us and our service dog. The environment of this close-enough-to walk to the beach property was serene and peaceful; this area, although in PB, is not a party street - you are surrounded by other owners who care about their property. The yard was completely private - like being behind the walls of a sanctuary. In considering this property, realize that the outdoor space is another room and you gain space in the backyard, as well as on the roof top patio (although it is a bit cumbersome to go up and down the narrow staircase) The kitchen is well-stocked, although I did miss my salad spinner and maybe one larger microwavable dish, but this are such minor points, they hardly bear mentioning. The galley kitchen is splendid, with no wasted space, but all the appliances. The bathroom was remodeled with a lovely large shower, plenty of hot water and good water pressure. Above all, the AC was fantastic...I would not recommend renting any property without AC. We are from Arizona, and are used to heat and live in our own home at 82 F in the summer during the day. We have vacationed for over 20 yrs in SD and trust us you will want this amenity offered here.
Great parking - secure, private, gated - another must at the beach to have a parking space...it was large enough for our Kia Minivan, just, but it worked.
Internet speed was good, especially in the yard. Cannot comment tv because we never used it, nor the telephone.
Location was excellent: near enough to walk to beach for us, and the drive to our other locations, Fiesta Island and the Santa Clara Peninsula close by. Walking distance for me to Trader Joe's, Ralphs, Farmer's Market.
Neighorhood; Quaint - and don't overlook checking out all the adorable houses, especially The Little Library in front of a house on Diamond.
Lots of restaurants around - we did not go out this time, but can recommend: Fig Tree, The Fishery, Tower 21 and Enoteca A.
Thanks again, Great Escape properties, for a delightful, seamless stay that was handled with the utmost professionalism.
