Amazing holiday- John and Cathy were the most lovely welcoming people I have ever met. Nothing we asked of them was too much trouble, and they were excellent in showing us the area and also teaching us to drive! These hosts really do go above and beyond to ensure your stay is the best. They have such a wonderful family which we loved spending time watching the super bowl with. The apartment itself is in a great location and is clean and tidy. We will hope you visit again in the future!
You guys where awesome! Please come back real soon.
We definitely picked a great place to stay. It was so cozy and cute. The view is beautiful on the top of the balcony.You are walking distance to Mission Bay. Kathy and John were so welcoming that it almost felt like they were friends that we have known a long time. We will definitely stay there again. Thank you Kathy and John!!
Kathy is a great host and was very accommodating to my husband and me, especially when we had an unforseen last-minute schedule change. She was very easy to work with. The unit itself is lovingly cared for. You can tell Kathy and John paid special attention to deatils throught the unit: the shower head was wonderful, the bed was pillow soft, they left robes for guests as well as plenty of beach gear for a day in the sun. The fridge was stocked and the kitchen in the unit was really useful. Overall, just wanted to say "thanks" to Kathy and John for an enjoyable visit.
I REALLY ENJOYED KATHY AND JOHN! They are my new grandparents! They sweet, kind, genuine, giving and spitfires! I came to SD all alone and they did a great job making sure I was well taken care of. The property itself was amazing. Just like the description. I stayed in the smaller studio and it was clean, comfortable and cozy. Kathy took me grocery shopping to get everything I needed. The little kitchenette set up was great. You have all the appliances you'll need including a couple extras (I loved the cappuccino maker!) The washer and dryer being in the unit is definitely a plus. The sky deck on the roof has a great view of the Bay. You're literally five minutes away from it! I would recommend this studio to anyone. I can't wait to come back. I'll surely bring my passport for dinner in Mexico! Love, Your Feisty Granddaugther, Brittney

We brought our own coffee as there is espresso machine. Close to grocery store and fast food. Already referred to family. Thanks for all Kathy and John!
friend & I have travelled all over the world and Kathy & John are definitely some of the nicest, genuine and helpful people we have ever meet. As 2 people that never had driven in the US or driven an automatic, Kathy spent one evening with us nearby San Diego harbour helping us get accustomed to the car, driving on the other side of the road & all the while telling us stories from the locality. John took us out sailing around the harbour another day where we got very up close the navy shipyard and Naval boats whizzing by. They saved us expense ferrying us to and from SeaWorld and to Tijuana to one of the nicest restaurants that you could hope to find. Some how they managed to do this without ever encroaching on the holiday. Meeting them & spending the little time we did with them one of the highlights of a holiday that was jammed pack with fantastic points. This review does not do their generosity and kindness the full justice the deserve. Thee best advice I can offer is to stay with them & find out for yourself. Thanks Kathy and John. We miss you :-)
We had a very nice experience staying at studio 101, which is the smaller of their two studios. The studio was very clean and comfortable which was important to us. The owners are wonderful! They were kind and very helpful when we asked them questions about the area, recommending places to eat and things to do. They really do make you feel like you’re a friend, not just a tenant ?. The room is decorated nicely and they keep little things here and there in case you forget something from home (toothbrushes and things like that). They even have shampoo, conditioner, and body wash in the shower so you don’t have to take any if you don’t want to. I would highly recommend this studio to anyone. It beats getting a hotel and the location is perfect! We were able to get to places quickly and easily. Thanks John and Kathy for a wonderful experience!
Thanks for the great review! Kathy and John
My husband and I really enjoyed our 4-night stay in unit #101. The space was designed with attention to detail and the nautical decor made it very appealing. The studio was clean, comfortable, and convenient to everything. Kathy and John were exceptional hosts going above and beyond in making sure we had everything we needed.
As our 2nd trip to John & Kathy's studios we chose the larger studio this time as we were staying longer. It was just perfect for our needs & extremely comfortable. (loved that dual shower head shower!) We spent 8 wonderful days in San Diego-hiking in Torrey Pine Reserve, walking beaches and lunching along the ocean, visiting Balboa Park which offers days of wandering through museums etc., and strolling through old town visiting multiple stores holding artisan's wares. Even went to a fantastic live play that Kathy recommended. There is still so much to see and do. We feel that John & Kathy are hosts "extraordinaire"! They have made us feel we are special friends not just clients. We thank them for all the special eateries that we enjoyed recommended by them. We rate this studio a 5 +! We feel we have found the best San Diego has to offer and we WILL be back! Thank you John & Kathy for everything!
This is a great place for a holiday. The studio has everything you need and the improvements that John & Kathy have made since our visit last year have really added to it. The location is great - Seaworld, Mission Bay & Pacific & Mission beaches and the I5 are all within easy access. However, the real attraction of this property are the owners, John & Kathy. The welcome you receive and the care and attention throughout the stay is second to none. John & Kathy kindly invited us to their barbeque to celebrate the 4th July with them. It was great to meet their family and friends and we had a wonderful time and really felt welcomed and not like visitors. They also took us to Tijuana and we had a great time touring the town and then went for a fabulous meal. They are truely great people and we now consider them friends and hope that we will be able to return soon. We would certainly recommend a stay here.
We had a great stay in San Diego staying at Kathy and John's studio. The view from the roof top patio is fabulous and its so close to all of the local attractions. We went to the beach, sea world, San Diego Zoo and a Padres game in 4 days. Kathy and John had lots of fun things for us to borrow to go to the beach with towels, chairs, umbrella and boogie boards. Dont miss out on a great ball park in downtown Pet Co Park tickets on the grassy hill are only $5! And not many people go so you can seat hop if you like.
Thanks for coming! Please come back soon.
I just recently stayed in one of John and Kathy's condo over Memorial Day weekend. The best decision I made was booking with them. This was my second trip to Diego and the best so far. Thanks to the wonderful airlines (i won't mention any names) my flight was cancelled and my sister was stuck at airport. Thanks to Kathy and John my sister was pickup mins after arriving and given the royal treatment. I can't thank them enough. Once i arrived, they provided a GPS which made it possible to see everything we wanted effortlessly. We enjoyed warm sunny lunches on the deck with amazing views. They also provided a list of the best restaurants. (Phil's bbq, point luma Seafood) The fish taco's were AMAZING! Thanks again for the great recommendations. There's definitely something to be said for saying in a hotel and having a bed to sleep in BUT having a comfty bed, along with personal tour guide, endless ideas, GPS, bikes, and the wonderful smell of Jasmine outside your door. Now that's priceless! I haven't mentioned the price...Kathy and John offer all this for a great price. I will be staying with Kathy and John on my next visit for sure. This way i will have enough money for another round of Fish Tacos. yummy!
Thanks for the great review.
Thanks Kathy & John for your hospitality & kindness. We had a great vacation & hopefully looking forward to coming back sometime soon. We love San Diego & you definitelyadded to that.You are an amazing couple. The reviews we read before we came do not do you justice, there are not many people like you in the world. Our lives have been enriched by meeting you.
Our family enjoyed a funfilled week in this beauitiful city, taking in all the sights. Staying here was a great decision and made our trip much much more relaxing and enjoyable. The hospitality was especially generous! The rides were more appreciated more than you will know. Thaks for a lovely stay!! From Columbia, S C.
