I’ve read and heard about the “10/10” AirBnB experience, and have envied others who have been treated to one, but I can finally say that I know what it means to stay at a real game-changer! This is without a doubt the BEST AirBnB I’ve ever stayed at. From the first steps of communication to ensuring we were able to get settled in properly, Donna was an extremely gracious host. Donna’s meticulous attention to detail truly shows in the stunning condition the units at Alcazar Court are in. My wife and I are both huge lovers of historical architecture, and Donna spared no expense in restoring these bungalows to their full glory — her keen eye for interior decoration is equally unmatched. Further, Donna was incredibly thoughtful in putting together a detailed, thorough house manual that answers any question you could possibly have, and she also provided a compelling list of things to do in the area (which I must say, is absolutely perfectly centrally located for any San Diego activity)! When we come back to San Diego, there is no doubt about where we’ll be staying!! Alcazar Court!
We loved our stay at the Alcazar Court! Donna was the ultimate host and thought of everything. We had two toddlers and she went out of her way to get us two highchairs and two pack n plays. It made our stay more comfortable. The one bedroom bungalow is newly renovated in a tasteful way. It was not roomy, especially for three adults and two toddlers. However, it was very comfortable. In the kitchen, she provided a bottle of prosecco in the frig, a jug of cold water, and ice in the ice trays. There was detergent and dryer balls for the washer/dryer. There was dishwasher detergent for the dishwasher. There was sunscreen, bathrobe, white noise machine, and plenty of toiletries in the bathroom. The Hillcrest neighborhood was lively, and we were within walking distance to popular restaurant, Whole Foods, etc. Plenty of free street parking if you walk 5 minutes. We absolutely loved our stay at Alcazar Court.
My husband and I travel a lot for both business and pleasure. We are used to the big box as well as the chic boutique hotels. This being our first experience with Airbnb we must say we are sold on the concept. Donna your bungalow was cozy and warm. We felt right at home, your attention to detail made our stay a welcoming one and reviews and pictures fall short to the experience. Thank you for opening your doors to us and I’m sure the next time we are in town we will look to book again. Thanks!
One of the best aAirbnb experiences I’ve had thus far! Not only was the place even cuter than the photos, it was extremely comfortable, clean, and impeccably maintained & managed. Parking is not available onsite, but we never ran into any issues getting a spot on the block.
Highly recommend this Airbnb if you’re in San Diego!! Donna was an ideal host- attentive, perfectly organized, her place was spotless, safe and in a great central location! The Murphy bed was a unique and fun aspect to the bungalow and was incredibly comfortable! Definitely recommend taking advantage of the outside patio which was so peaceful and quaint. We had a perfect stay in San Diego thanks to Donna and her beautiful place – couldn’t ask for more!
5 stars! Attention to detail and impeccable lodging. Looking forward to returning soon! The purpose for my visit to Hillcrest was time sensitive and stressful. Upon entering my Alcazar Court abode each evening, my stress disappeared. Enjoying morning coffee outside helped me prepare for the day! Thank you for sharing your historical and beautiful world.
I loved staying at Donna’s bungalow. The studio that I stayed in was the perfect size for my quick trip down to San Diego. It has everything I needed (shampoo, conditioner, soap and even face wipes for my make up). The bed was incredibly easy to pull down and very comfortable. Having all of the plugs right next to the bed to charge electronics is incredibly helpful and convenient! Donna communicated with me right after my booking and gave clear directions on how to check in. Loved this place and would stay again!!!
I can’t say enough about how great the bungalow and Donna Both are! Hillcrest is such a lovely neighborhood and Donna’s place is within walking distance from everything. There is a Whole Foods and a Walgreens around the corner and tons of options to eat out as well. The bungalow is perfect. The kitchen has all the essentials and then some, the bathroom is well appointed with nice lighting and the bed is so comfy! There are plenty of towels, toiletries and even really nice robes! The air conditioning was a pleasant addition on a hot visit. This is my favorite Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in, hands down!
Wow! Donna has all the details covered from a well furnished kitchen to Bandaids. Very clean, very comfortable, nice neighborhood and quiet. Walking distance to nice restaurants, Walgreens, and Whole Foods. The gated courtyard had comfortable seating and lovely landscaping that we enjoyed in the mornings. We highly recommend and would return again.
What a great little place this is! Thoughtfully equipped with everything…I loved how even the light switches are labeled! The unit is very tastefully updated and the location is right in the heart of Hillcrest. Parking is on-street but I was lucky and typically found a spot one block away or less. Really a well-done AirBnB rental and I would definitely rent here again!
We were treated to stay in this amazing place. It had everything we could expect and more. Fantastic location close to many cafes, bars and restaurants. It was spotlessly clean and had all modern amenities. It was also quiet which is incredible given its proximity to all that Hillcrest has to offer. A short Uber ride to downtown meant the excitement of central SD was only a few minutes away. Highly recommended.
We loved Donna’s place! You can tell a lot of love and passion went into creating such a sentimental place. There was everything we could have possibly needed. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to stay somewhere close to just about all the hot spots of SD.
What a beautiful place! I loved staying there and hope to return. Great location, super clean, lovely, full of personal touches to make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable. I highly recommend.
Wow wow wow. This is an amazing place to stay. It was very comfortable for two people and so very clean! The renovations to the bungalows are perfect; the bungalow was lovely and updated, but had a feeling of the history of the place. Area is great–many restaurants, stores and nice places for morning walks. Parking is tricky, but not impossible. But the thing that makes this a wow is Donna’s thoughtfulness and attention to detail. The kitchen was well-stocked, there are extra linens, games, books, a yoga mat, and a list of everything you could ever want to/need to know about the bungalows and the area. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
Alcazar Court was beyond perfect. From the moment we arrived and found parking adjacent, we knew we had a great weekend ahead of us. The studio layout was perfect for my girlfriend and I, with an amazing sitting area outside. The kitchen was stocked with all the basics, the TV was easy to use; and despite my reservations about the Murphy bed it was arguably more comfortable than my bed at home! Hillcrest is an incredible area and we were able to walk to get breakfast, brunch, and dinner. Donna is an AMAZING host and even was kind enough to send me articles of clothing I left behind. Great communication, great host, and wonderful accommodation. Hope to be back soon!
Best Airbnb experience yet! Donna provided a great experience for our vacation with a beautiful home, awesome outdoor bungalow space, and plentiful amenities. 10/10 would absolutely stay again.
Donna’s place is spectacular! It’s extremely close to restaurants and nightlife…and the place is impeccable! It’s very nicely decorated and Donna is a pro – travel shampoo/conditioner in the shower and a bottle of prosecco waiting for us. Highly recommend!
