Wish I was Still There

5 on January 28, 2015

I cannot recommend this highly enough. I live in downtown San Diego in a very noisy apartment building with a newborn next door. I badly needed to get out of the city and go somewhere relaxing and quiet. I stayed in the Asian Room which was the perfect size for just me (although they sweetly offered to upgrade me to a vacant, larger room). The house is immaculate and the grounds are beautiful. The attention to detail is flawless (the pool area is gorgeous). The private porch off the Asian room is huge and I spent hours reading in the comfy chair out there listening to the birds. The bed was super comfortable and the bathroom was really luxurious. There was a tv and very good wireless internet which was great. Also, there's a kitchen with full amenities so I could cook. The breakfast they make each morning is fantastic and there's snacks every night left in the kitchen. The best part is there are a ton of things to do but they leave you to do your own thing, if that's what you prefer. I would have loved to explore more and do the amazing hot tub but they could see that I needed to sleep and relax and were happy to let me do my own thing. Marianne is super sweet and Bill is very energetic and interesting and the dog is adorable. Rosalba is also SO sweet and I appreciated that she cleaned my room while I was at breakfast. I wish I was still there, frankly. Also, it's super easy to get to from downtown SD. I had the best two nights of sleep I've had in months.

A true haven!

LOVELY! Perfect getaway for our anniversary weekend, even if only an hour from home! Relaxing, charming, and quiet. We stayed in the smallest room but it was perfect with a fire place and our own private portion of deck to sit on. Bill and Marianne were the greatest of hosts and the breakfasts were wonderful! We were made to feel comfortable and welcome right away! We will definitely be going back and referring to our friends and family!!

Our hosts were simply wonderful, the rooms and buildings are straight from the past, yet with all the modern amenities. The grounds are beautiful and the food is more than you would expect. We will be going back with our family.

Such a great find. Hope to make it back on the West Coast soon just so we can enjoy. My wife and I spent a week in San Diego with the first 2 days here and the rest at the Del. We both agreed that this was the favorite part of our trip. Bill and Marianne take great pleasure in making sure you enjoy your experience. We will be back! Jack and Annie-Richmond, VA

Loved Jamul Haven

4.8 on July 29, 2014

I ended up at Jamul Haven almost by accident -- in desperation when a business trip was scheduled during the week of Comicon in San Diego. I was at first dismayed at not being able to stay right downtown -- but Jamul Haven was a delightful discovery. My days were "work" but my evenings were "vacation", relaxing poolside in the cool evening breeze. Now I can't wait to find a time to come back with my wife for a romantic getaway!

More and better than we expected

Awesome b&b

A Hidden Gem

5 on July 20, 2014

We recently spent two weeks driving from San Francisco to San Diego. As a change of pace we booked two nights at Jamul Haven to get a break from the heavily traveled popular locations. We could not have been more pleased with our choice. The B&B is approximately 20-30 minutes from all San Diego has to offer. However it really is a property that one finds it difficult to leave The 4 guest rooms are located in a fully rebuilt Victorian farmhouse (actually a mansion now) with rooms that are beautifully furnished and decorated. With gardens, a pool. and two saunas it is more a mini resort than a B&B. Add tom that the friendliest and most accommodating innkeeper, amazing breakfasts in an outdoor dining are off the pool and fresh baked treats every night, this is a must stay location on the san Diego area

Jamul Haven a wonderful experience!

Jamul Haven was a wonderful B&B experience from start to finish. The breakfast was delicious starting with a buffet and then your choice of 3 entrees Coffee is available 24/7. The grounds are lovely and the pool area beautiful. Marianne is a wonderful hostess. This completely remodeled Victorian Mansion is truly a relaxing experience. Also lots of things to do in San Diego which is about 20 minutes away.

A place we'll forever return to

Everything here is perfection on steroids. The only reason we come to San Diego is to stay at Jamul Haven. Been there 3 times and NEVER disappointed. Tony & Vicki Ellis

Best night's sleep in a long time

3.4 on May 22, 2014

Extremely comfortable beds, pillows, and sheets. Loved waking up to birds singing and the sunlight streaming in from the beautiful stained glass windows. Large room, wish we could have spent more time in it, but we took advantage of the pool and game room (ping pong and billiards) and walked the gardens. My ratings show that it met my expectations, but I have very high expectations! A wonderful experience.
