Would not stay again. Very Dirty.
I was hoping the other reviews for this listing were just flukes. They were not. My review is going to be so bad you might be tempted to think it’s an exaggeration...IT ISNT. We had to buy new towels, pillows and used our own sheets. We had to clean the entire studio upon arriving. Trust the bad reviews here people, or you will regret it as we did. I’m sure we could have talked to the host about our issues, but as we were staying a month and had to see him in passing we wanted to avoid an uncomfortable situation. That’s definitely our bad, but based on the other reviews and the hosts response I didn’t see any point. Shame really, could be a nice place.
Pros: Host seemed nice enough.
Charming house, in a great location.
Cons: The studio was disgusting when we arrived. So much dog hair on the floor/furniture it was actually unbelievable. The shower (and we assumed the rest of the bathroom) had clearly not been cleaned. COCKROACH in the kitchen cabinets/dirty countertops. Cobwebs. Pillows that stunk so bad we couldn’t use them. Blood stain on sheets. Dingy bath towels.
Broken window (still...another guest already brought this up)
Broken/improperly functioning “sleep number” bed was the most uncomfortable bed I’ve ever slept in.
No privacy curtains so you are basically on display, especially when you’re in bed.
I’m sure there is more, but you get the picture.
Poorly maintained, gets hot
Owner was not maintaining this unit, broken furniture throughout, broken kitchen utensils, disposal wasn't connected, broken windows, no paper towells, no tissues, no propane tank on the gas grill, no private parking, contrary to what the listing said - I had to park on the street. Lack of privacy, the owner rents out rooms in the main house to other guests who trudge back and forth to the garage to get their bikes all day, going right through your supposedly private patio. Sheer curtains on those windows facing the garage, so they can look right in. No screen door, no air conditioning, so expect lots of flies when you open the door for ventilation and it gets hot. Owner George is nice enough and recognized he had work to do, so after a long talk, he agreed to refund my deposit for the next month and I vacated so he could get to work. Hopefully, he will take care of these issues, the place has potential and it is in a good location.
Great for a solo person or couple who want a place on the island. Especially good for the price!

We came back again!! And loved it!! My fur babies are so content here as I am. Kennedy the owners dog has a crush on my Gracie. So cute. This stay I had to go to the ER on my last night and that was quite scary and challenging to say the least. George offered help and he let my dogs out as for I was in the ER very long and middle of the night. By the time I got home is was 3 am and I had to be checked out for other tenants were checking in. I was in no condition to drive back to AZ , so George and Signe offered me and my fur babies to stay in there home. How sweet and nice was that? When I stayed in Dec/Jan. I told Them I knew the had good hearts, boy I was correct!! I always 99% correct. Can't wait to come back again!! Sooooon!

I had the chance to visit this cute cottage in Coronado and really enjoyed it. I am a very clean neat person with 2 clean fur babies. Everything was clean and as pictured. We loved our stay here. George and Signe were so nice and was there any time I needed something. They're very warm and friendly people/owners. WILL Come Back Again!!!!
Thank you for everything
Unclean. Very old cobwebs behind & under everything. Dust, dog fur & nasty odor in the bathroom.
Just received the insurance claim the owners sent to VRBO. The amount of over $1,500. Of course, the mandatory insurance coverage that was required will cover the cost.
I am a positive person and meet everyone with an open mind. My parents raised me not to say anything unkind and live and let live. However, the owners listed items that functioned the same upon arrival. Such as, replacing an entire door that was sticking on the top, which are little sanding would fix.
The current guest next door, which will be staying there for sometime, began complaining to the owners about that noise and many other problems our last week. She apparently told the owners that she was going to call the police. Mind you, our 20 month was dealing with a 15 hour jetlag difference. My wife and I felt harassed from this other guest and everything increasingly got worse. The before mentioned guest is having a house built across the street from this location and plans on becoming a permanent member of the wonderful community of Coronado. So, I understand the owners predicament.
The owners did not allow us to do all of our laundry. Which, was an issue for us because they only provide one set of sheets for your stay. We purchased other sheets and a mattress protector. However, part of their insurance claim is to replace the never used mattress protector and very little used sheets. Needless to say, we vacated earlier than planned
There were two other guests that were pleasant enough, however with two dogs in the backyard, there is always something to step in. George's son is in his twenties and has issues with touching/ moving his clothes from washer and dryer.
I cleaned up after our son and really improved their neglected garden area, but was never thanked. In fact, George took a hose to clean leaves, although there is and has been a serious drought in California, and damaged our son's new $300 battery operated car.
I understand that no one is perfect. We will continue to use VRBO and not let this experience tarnish us. Hopefully, thesefactual statements will help everyone with compassion. Understanding others first, before trying to be understood.
Safe travels everyone. Peace and much love.
This review from Celestino appears to be retributional since he had just received the insurance claim that he mentioned ( itemized below). Our 30 five star ratings on all four properties (links available) that we have available for guests speak for itself to say that his harsh rating of us is an aberration from what we have consistently earned.
In this first and only insurance claim except when guests had requested one, we had considerable repairs due to water damage. We and others were seeing daily water from steam streaming down the windows, and, not until Celestino had left, did we find swelled and stained wood. Not included on the claim was the wear and tear to our new laundry machines which he used non-stop even at 4am.
This guest was a disturbance for our other guests. They made constant noise all through the night causing another guest in our home not to be able to sleep despite earplugs. His using the laundry machines through the night continued even though he had been asked to refrain. His answer was that he saw no one else was using them. Our gas & electric bill was about double, over $700! I was forced to set rules about their usage which they ignored. Secondly, they allowed their two year old to slam the kitchen cabinets for play at night. He said he was a strong believer in not curbing a child's creativity, but this noise disturbed other guests.
I think we were more than hospitable towards them, but we had a responsibility to our other guests to inform him of customary houserules. We did not complain even when they moved all the heavy antique furniture and never put it back. They rented from us for approximately a month and caused damages exceeding $1500, such as a soiled mattress, probably by their 19 month old, a broken bed, broken toilet, broken kitchen faucet, etc. He denied it, so we got no compensation. If he had said something about the toy car which was left outside all month, so we would have done our best to be hospitable as always. We invite guests to our properties, which are all part our historic home, only because we believe in the goodness of people and we won't let this change that.
Gelegen op slechts zes blokken van Coronado Beach, de nummer 1 strand in Amerika volgens Dr. Strand in 2012, is deze studio perfect gelegen. Over zes blokken in de andere richting en je aan de baai bekijken prachtige skyline van San Diego. De wereld beroemde Hotel Del Coronado is 1. 4 mijl afstand of een 7 minuten fietsen (fietsen voorzien), en Orange Ave met zijn vele restaurants, theaters, winkels, supermarkten, etc is ongeveer 0. 7 mijl afstand.
