  • What a wonderful stay at the Casita. Brad is a wonderful host! Beautiful, clean and comfortable. Great location!


    Loved our stay at the Casita. Brad was wonderful as a host. Great suggestions and attentive to guests needs. Home is very clean, comfortable and wellstocked. We loved our morning visits from Leo and Zoey. This area is a great central location for all San Diego has to offer. Easy walk to restaurants and the marina waterfront area. We’ll definitely be back. Thank you for the great view for the fireworks!

  • Fabulous!


    Wonderful experience all around!

    Our casita was clean & decorated so lovely.

    Check-in was made easy, everything was ready & we had everything we needed and then some.

    Our host greeted us & made us feel right at home! We believe we could have asked for the moon & they would have tried to make it happen.

    We will definitely stay there in the future if we are lucky enough to be able to.

  • The Casita Is Fantastic !!


    What can I say. My wife and I stayed at the "Casita" for a week to attend a business conference. The Casita was modern, clean and comfortable. It was completely stocked with everything you could possibly need for your stay. The location was perfect with everything nearby including great places to visit and eat. It's minutes away from Sunset Cliffs (be sure to get there early and watch the sunset, you won't forget it).

    The Casita also has a firepit, patio with sofas, tables and chairs and a BBQ grill if you are inclined to do some grilling. With the great San Diego weather you can sit outside and enjoy the evening.

    The most amazing part of the stay was our host, Brad and his wife. They made sure we had everything we needed and were amazingly hospitable. Brad actually gave us a tour of the area and assisted us with a couple of errands. Just to give you an idea, I was returning from the conference one day and Brad noticed I was limping. I mentioned to him that I had hurt my knee previously and it was really sore. He said he would check to see if he had a knee brace in the house. He checked but he did not. I told him no worries, I would go get something the next day. When we got up in the morning, next to the door, there was a new knee brace waiting for me. Brad had gone to a pharmacy and purchased one for me. Brad's hospitality and kindness goes above and beyond and we plan to stay in touch.

    In addition, Brad is a wealth of knowledge. All of his recommendations on where to visit and eat were spot on. Make sure you ask him for his recommendations.

    I also want to mention that they have a couple of Frenchies that are adorable and love to come and greet you first thing in the morning. I think it's an added bonus.

    Just to close out, all I can say is why rent a stuffy hotel room when you can rent the Casita and feel like you have a house all to yourself (which you literaly do) as well as having an execellent host like Brad. Try it, you won't regret it.
