Cancellation Policy: No refunds are given for cancellations with arrivals within 60 days. We recommend purchasing travel insurance to cover any loss. If your cancellation is due to a death or illness in the family, your dates may be changed at no additional charge any time available 12 months from your original arrival date.
If reservation is cancelled more than 60 days from your arrival date, all lodging fees will be refunded if, and only if, the unit can be re-rented.

If you are traveling with small children, we can assist with rental of baby equipment and babysitting services. Just let us know what is on your wish list.
We do highly suggest letting us help with pre-stocked groceries. It makes your vacation so much easier when your kitchen is stocked and groceries put away before you arrive – that way you do not have to waste precious time at the grocery store. You may use our personal shopper to make sure you get exactly what you want, or you may order from Instacart directly and have the groceries delivered for us to put away for you prior to your arrival.
We have several local favorite personal chefs if you would like to have someone cook you a fun dinner in one night or prepare meals during your stay. If you arrange a private chef for your first arrival dinner, it takes the stress off the day where everybody is traveling and often costs the same as going out to a nice restaurant. We can also arrange wine tasting, beer tasting, or any combination of fun customized events at the house.
Let us arrange the VIP behind the scenes tours for you of The Zoo, Sea World, Yacht tours of the San Diego Bay, personalized tours of San Diego, and much more. See the Panda Bears before the zoo opens, take a tour in a 9-person zoo cart to meet the zookeepers and see the animals you choose up close, swim with the Dolphins or interact with our White Beluga Whales. I do recommend letting us purchase your attraction tickets online because our ticket prices are less than you pay at the gate and we can have them waiting for you at check-in. The tickets are not date specific and are good for one year. We look forward to welcoming you to San Diego!
