"I must admit I'm a little hesitant to give this review of Hipster Haven. If I tell you how wonderful it is, it may not be available the next time we go to San Diego. Rosemary, the owner, is an excellent communicator. It was a pleasure planning our trip because she made it so easy for us with our stay there. We were there for 9 nights, and she even texted to check on us during the week. Although we never had a chance to meet, I felt like I had made a new friend. The unit is exactly as described on this site. Surprisingly, during our October visit, they were having a heatwave. She kindly added a portable air conditioner in the living room in case we needed it. The windows all open with nice, new screens, and there is a great screen on the front door on the balcony. We fell in love with the motion sensitive solar lights on the stairs, the balcony, and in the outdoor areas. Did I mention that this place is totally green and solar powered? It is, and even with the heat, we never had any problems. Since my husband and I both have dander allergies, we were a little concerned about it being a pet friendly property. However, we could never tell a pet had ever been in there, there were no smells, and it was spotlessly clean. The kitchen is very well-equipped; there is a new barbecue grill right at the foot of the stairs; and the courtyard area is even lovelier than the photos. Her angel trumpet "tree" is divine! The gardeners came while we were there and quickly cleaned the yard. They trimmed the lavender bush and the smell was heavenly the rest of the week. The first night we were there, someone below us had a barking dog during the early evening hours. Imagine our surprise when we hear a knock on the door and the gentleman below us apologized. Although it certainly wasn't nuisance, we were touched that even their other guests would be so considerate. And we never heard another peep from anything or anyone below us or around us. It is a very safe area, and as stated, there is very close and convenient street parking. It is a safe residential area. We saw families, mothers and children, and individuals strolling up and down the street at various (reasonable) hours. But since the condos are in the back, you never hear any street noise. We always felt completely safe. We highly recommend the nearby Italian restaurant, Il Postino, where they make their own pasta. The fish taco truck across the street is really good too. While we're on the subject of food, Luigi's Pizzeria in nearby Golden Hill is a must. Be sure to get their homemade ricotta on your pizza. The bed and the entire place is very comfortable. We occasionally even dozed off on the large sectional while watching television."
