Best rental ever. Adults and kids alike loved all the cool games. Clean, close to everything and very comfortable. Highly recommend this house. Equipped with everything imaginable. We all agreed the house definitely added to our trip. We are a competitive family. The kids stayed busy the whole trip playing pinball, shooting pool and video games.

Greg P. May 2019
Great house! Great Location! Jim is the best!!! Hardly a single problem and if we did it was handled right away.
David S. Apr 2019
This is a PERFECT home for any large-ish family gathering. We had guests from 2 to 80 and everyone enjoyed our stay. There's enough room so you're not all over each other, the 5 bedrooms are a fair size (1 large master bedroom and 4 smaller queen size rooms), and the main floor has plenty of room for games AND conversation. It's a well taken care of home, and has everything we needed for our trip. Thanks for making our family feel taken care of!!!
Coleen J. Apr 2019
We loved your games and home! Get your ice maker fixed and we will be back!
Chris W. Mar 2019
Our family of 9 had an absolute blast in this house. It had the space and entertainment we needed.
Elisabeth D. Feb 2019
The home had everything we needed for a family weekend in San Diego. The games were awesome and did not disappoint. Everyone from ages 3 through 60 were having a blast and there was plenty of room for a multi-generational family of 10.
Cheryl M. Jan 2019
This house was in a good location to visit many of the attractions. The kids loved the game rooms. The owner met us at the house and explained everything and how it worked.. Wish we had another week.
Jeri P. Nov 2018
This was really the perfect home setting for our family reunion. Jim had the house equipped with everything we could possibly need, down to little extras like spices in the cupboard, hair dryers in each bathroom, ziplock sandwich bags and night lights in the hallways and lighting the staircase. We had eight adults and one baby grandson. The size of the home was perfect for us. We were also grateful to have a high chair and a baby pack and play supplied as well as beach towels, beach chairs and a cooler.
The games rooms were used everyday. We even had a tournament one night!
Our holiday could not have been better or more comfortable. Thanks again Jim!!

Simmons S. Oct 2018
Aloha! My family really enjoyed staying at this vacation home. The house had everything needed for a large family to feel comfortable and feel at home. Everybody enjoyed the games, there was always something to do. I would definitely stay here again with my family when visiting San Diego. Mahalo!!
Steve P. Oct 2018
We rented this property for 4 nights, a group of 4 adults and 4 teens. Five bedrooms plus air mattress worked great and three baths with showers in each was a real plus. Lots of room and plenty to do with tvs and 3 great game rooms. Close to two freeways made it easy to get around. We needed to travel to Marine Corps Recruit Training Base which took about 30 minutes but was easy going at the times we went. Only 10 minutes to the beach. Towels, boogie boards, and chairs made our beach day easy. All in all a great base from which to explore San Diego.
Barbara V. Oct 2018
When we arrived Jim was there to greet us, He gave us a tour and showed us where everything was. The game rooms are awesome the kids never wanted to leave. The long driveway was a hit for scooter races. The house was clean and had everything we needed. Our family enjoyed our stay and if we are ever back in the San Diego area we will be staying here again!
Steve P. Sep 2018
The house was absolutely phenomenal. There were so many games to play that we wish we had more time to set new high scores. Jim gave the best tour of the home and was very informative of things to do nearby. Highly recommend
Richard R. Sep 2018
This house has it all, almost every video game and arcade game you can think of. Queen size beds in all 5 bedrooms 3 full baths perfect house to stay in. You won't be disappointed if you stay here.
Chadwick C. Jul 2018
This home is awesome! Very well maintained. Owner and manager were nice and made themselves available to my friends and I. We shot pool, played ping pong, arcade games, pinball, air was like we rented Dave and Busters for the weekend! Very pleased. It was a fellas trip for us...but I would take my family there in a heartbeat.
LUIS V G. Jul 2018
The kids stayed busy and enjoyed themselves with all the video and arcade style games. We enjoyed the space of the home and proximity to local parks and attractions.
Hien T. Jul 2018
This house has *everything* and more! There were so many games provided that it kept everyone occuppied during our stay! I love that it has the long drive way for the kids to safely drive the provided scooters. They even had beach towels and boogie boards and camping chairs for us to go to the beach! It made us feel like they really want us to enjoy our time in SD, not just in their home. The only thing I would do if I were them is probably replace the sofas as they look outdated. And if you like to sleep with the window open, it will be noisy in the morning since it's next to a big street. Other than that, everything was great!
Stuart N. Jun 2018
We loved the house and all the games. Our kids had a blast and thought we should move in for good :) It was close to main roads for getting around the city relatively quickly. We do wish there had been ceiling fans in the bedrooms, and that there had been a pancake griddle.
Mary P. Apr 2018
What an amazing place! Our big family so enjoyed the ample space of this house. It's big enough so you're not running into each other, but is not so big that you feel separated. The 3 showers were amazing as we were all getting ready at once! And the games, what an awesome bonus! We had some competitive people and the adults enjoyed the games as much as the kids! : ) Great place to say and SO EASY to book! GREAT check in and out. Highly recommend as a get away!
Peter V. Apr 2018
The owners of this property give meticulous attention to every detail of every kind. It is sparkling clean, the beds are great, the furnishings are ideal, and the kitchen and numerous games are marvelous. Couldn't ask for better. In fact, nothing comapres to the excellence of this property!
Terry C. Mar 2018
Very welcoming and accommodating. The house had everything we need for entertainment and convenience. We had an opportunity to meet the owner at check in and he was very welcoming and helpful getting familiar with everything. If I need to provide for a family and friends again, I will definitely look to this address to accommodate.
Richard T. Feb 2018
Great house, perfect for teenagers and adults!! VERY comfortable beds. Well stocked kitchen. Extremely generous consuamable paper good and soaps. Thoughtful touches everywhere, including hand sanitizer at entrance, clocks and night lights in all bedrooms.
Robert T. Jan 2018

Kimberly B. Dec 2017
The property was perfect for our large family getting together for the holidays. The game areas were a hit (especially the pinball machine) and the queen sized beds/3 bathrooms made life easier for all! Definitely a hidden gem down south!
Amber G. Dec 2017
When we first pulled into the house, the owner was there to greet us and was finishing helping the cleaners before we settled in. He was great and went out of his way to make sure we had all that we needed. He even went and got ads for us from near by grocery stores to make sure we got the best prices for our stay and gave us a tour to let us know all the things the house offered. Jim was great and we had a great stay and time. Thank you again!
DAVID P. H. Nov 2017
What a great place this is for families with small children. We took our whole family - 8 adults, 4 small grandchildren ages 3-8 - on a vacation to San Diego over the thanksgiving weekend. This house was so perfect for our large group. Plenty of bedrooms (each with their own flatscreen tv), beautiful roomy kitchen, great outdoor spaces. We had other family members over for thanksgiving dinner and the enclosed outdoor patio and gazebo provided us enough room to have a large family gathering. There was so much to do that the little ones were never bored. Pinball, foosball, basketball arcade game, ping pong, air hockey, pool table, and perhaps most used were the scooters provided in the garage. They rode those endlessly up and down the extended driveway. Having the gate at the end of the drive gave all the adults a secure feeling that the kids could play out there and not be able to wander off. The location is great too - 20 minutes to the zoo, 12 minutes to the beach, 45 minutes to legoland. Oh, and I forgot one other important thing - the footsie wootsie foot massager in the garage! Oh man was that a pleasure after long days at the amusement parks!
The staff was great and very responsive. We had a few things that we needed after we got there and they were quick to respond and deliver the needed items - on thanksgiving day no less!
We are so happy that we chose this particular destination. We highly recommend this place and we will surely be back for another family vacation!
Javier N. Nov 2017
We loved our stay here. Large, fun and clean home. Loved the privacy and all the fun games. Thank you very much! We will definitely be back!
Michele D. Oct 2017
10 of us traveled from Oklahoma and all stayed together in this awesome home. So roomy, plenty of bathrooms, and bedrooms. Spectacular stay. All the games on site pulled all the family members together for nightly tournaments.
Cathy A. Oct 2017
We were very pleased with the home. Especially enjoyable were the game rooms. The beds were comfortable, bathrooms well stocked, and kitchen utensils more than adequate. The grill and fire pit were appreciated by family. Overall, a great place for our family gathering! Also, Anna was extremely responsive and helpful with all of our needs. We were fortunate to meet the owner of the home. He was very nice and took quite a bit of his time to show us around and explain the workings of his home, of which he takes great pride in the upkeep. We highly recommend this property!
Mary B. Sep 2017
The property owner was very welcoming and engaging. The house was in perfect location for our trips to Cornado Island and San Diego. There were more amenities than we could use during our 3 night stay - pinball, bean bag toss, gas grill, fire pit, etc. We have no hesitation in recommending a longer stay.
