Summer Vacation 2008
Review by Cindy C.
This was a great property and great location. Our Family had a great time in San Diego. We were a short walk away from the beach and the pool. We had a washer and dryer and kitchen to keep our costs down. The only thing I would suggest is to clean the carpet. It was rather dirty, but other than that, a great spot to call home for a week.

Our particular place, which we have stayed in before, was not somewhere I would want to stay again. I filled out the sheet and turned it into Dave Stubbs already, but some of the things I remember are: Many things seem to be broken or falling apart and need attention for example: The shower doors are hard to open and close as are the drawers in the kitchen. The screen slider on the balcony door was ripped and broken, every time we tried to open it it fell off the hinges and we had to put it back on. We needed a fan in every room because it was very very hot and we only had 3 fans and had to keep moving them to the rooms we were in. When we arrived the place was not very clean, you could see lots of guck in the corners on the floors, etc. It seems to need a big overall cleaning. I realize it was one of the less expensive properties in DMBC, but I expect things to be clean and working. Also, our entire family who rents out 6 condos each year some for more than 1 week is actively seeking somewhere else to go from now on. We love the location of DMBC and the privacy of the beach but the permanent residents who live their and complain about everything are ruining our vacation. We spend a lot of money and take off work to come and relax and enjoy being with our extended family in the cooler weather and it seems that all we hear are complaints about how loud are kids are being. These are good kids who are cousins and enjoy being with each other and this is their vacation too. If we are a little noisy at 11:00 at night, this shoudn't be causing such a stir. The people who live in DMBC should know that the others who rent there are on their hard earned vacations and if all they have to put up with is a little noise, they should feel lucky. Much worse things could be going on. We are sick of all the complaints to the point where we hope we find someplace new by next summer, but if we don't, we will end up back at DMBC and hope the situation will have improved.

spots, but doubt if they will come out. Vacume cleaner had been broken and thrown back in the closet. Was replaced. Kitchen was adequate. Heater and sink stopper stopped working. Problem was due to rust and salt air, and was fixed. Kudos to Stubbs for responding to the problems
