Casa de Gringo is a private, beach-area home within a short walk to the beach, bay, Sea World and bars & restaurants! No car needed! Fully furnished, 2 bedroom/1 Bath that comfortably sleeps 6 (plus one on the couch). PETS ALLOWED (with owner appr …
Casa de Gringo was very comfortable and greatly increased our overall enjoyment of our trip to San Diego. The sleeping arrangements were comfortable and clean. The house was close to everything which made commuting easy and the driveway was invaluable.
The owner was great to work with and very accommodating.
We will definitely try to stay here again free travel back to San Diego
We had a wonderful stay at this house. Stephen, this owner, was always very quick at answering any questions we had. The house had everything we needed, we left right at home! Plus, it was spotless clean when we arrived! We have one regret: why didn't we stay longer?! But we will definitely be back and we highly recommend the house! Thanks again for everything Stephen!
I can't express how much I loved the house and the area. It was worth every penny! I didn't want to leave! The house was clean, nicely decorated, comfortable, private and had everything we needed to feel at home. The shower had great water pressure and Stephen even provided toiletries is needed. I was able to meet him in person and he is a very nice person. I felt as if I could call for anything I needed at anytime. My son is in the Navy and stationed SD. It was convenient for him to commute back and forth to the base and he loved being able to get away for a while. I was able to cook homemade meals which he loved. I enjoyed sitting on the patio in the morning drinking my coffee and reading. We also enjoyed the bikes. It was nice to be able to walk or bike everywhere because parking is difficult. I felt very safe in the neighborhood. The house is on a busy street and can be difficult to back out of the driveway. If you want to take the city bus downtown, the stop is right in front of the house. Very convenient also. I can't wait to go back!
Very neat and cozy home with all amenities, closed to everything, you can walk to many places nearby including beach, Mission Bay, supermarket, shops, restaurant and bus stops. The house is fully equipped from bicycles, coffee maker, microwave, stove, refrigerator, TV with cable, dvds movie, books, extra towels, very cool patio terrace. The house has many trees so it give a sense of privacy. Very Recommended. By the way very cool owner.
We had such a great time at Casa de Gringo. We wanted for nothing - this house has absolutely everything you need. Cooking utensils, grill, beach toys, bikes, quality linens & towels. Not to mention the location is great because it is within walking distance to Trader Joes, Garnet Street (which has lots of bars and restaurants), and is close to both the Bay and Beach.
The back yard and deck we perfect for nights. There are lights on the hanging from the deck, comfortable seating and beautiful landscaping that creates perfect privacy.
Also in walking distance is Pure Cupcakes - a must have while in Pacific Beach.
We just got here....and IT'S AMAZING!!! My family is so happy! The kids are running around talking about how cool it is, and can't wait to hit the beach:) thank you so much for having this up for rent. This is going to be a far better vacation for my family then I even expected! By the way your kitchen is superb!
Had an amazing time.. Stephen made the process so easy.. The location was perfect, house is super cute and everything was within walking distance. Everything you needed to have a fun day at the beach was available. Loved sitting out on the back patio, amazing landscaping.. Would stay here again .....
This rental and the landlord are the best place I have ever had the pleasure of renting from for vacation purposes. I just joined Homeaway, and searched for months and couldn't find anything that met my needs like this place did. I had easy access to the Convention center, by driving a few miles to Old Town Station and hoping on the trolly. The beach & the bay were with in walking distance. Surfing was great! The life guards even cleared an area for surfers only. My family stayed to enjoy the beach and local area while my husband and I went to the convention center and they said it was the best vacation they had in years! There were six of of total and we were able to fit comfortably in the house. While it's on the smaller side it is so well organized with places for everything that we didn't even notice. The kitchen was amazing! The patio relaxing. There is noise because it's on a main road, but it made us feel more part of the city and all the things going on in it. The only thing I would recommend is putting a nice squishy mattress pad on the big bed, although my sister said she prefered the bed hard. So to each their own! Again I cannot say enough good things about the house and the owner! Thank you again for the stay, it was amazing!!!!!!
My family an I stayed for 10 days including the 4th of July. We went to the ocean beach, the bay beach, sea world, Coronado island, a baseball game. Boardwalk and Tons of restaurants. The house is right in the middle of it all. We had a great time, the house is well equipped. Has a beautiful backyard, and a garage big enough for a full size tundra.
The bikes and wagon were used a lot during our stay. Since it is all so close. Perfect weather and location
Along with another couple, my girlfriend and I spent an amazing week at 'Casa Gringo'. We had been coming to Pacific Beach for years and had always shelled out for a hotel. After staying at Casa Gringo, I will never rent a hotel room again! The owner was great to work with, very accommodating and helpful. As for the house, it is superbly decorated with a gourmet kitchen and an awesome deck. We spent many a night on that deck drinking margaritas! The location is awesome as Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean are both only a short walk away. And if you don't feel like walking, Casa Gringo has beach cruisers! The beach cruisers came in very helpful when we didn't feel like cooking and ventured off the the fun and exciting Garnet Ave for a night out. And for quick grocery and beer runs, there is a Trader Joes and a Sprouts just 3 blocks away.
On our next trip to Pacific Beach, we will definitely be staying as Casa Gringo!
My wife and I stayed at 'Casa de Gringo' with some friends back in March, and loved the convenient location, and great back deck/yard. We walked to the Bay almost every day (about 4 blocks South of the home), and biked to the local watering holes in the evenings. The home is smallish, but well laid-out, furnished comfortably, and worked great for dinner parties, and entertaining. I'd definitely recommend staying their, and appreciated the owners quick response to our needs.
