Birthday party places in Downtown San Diego, Family-friendly attractions in East Village, Bachelorette party in Little Italy


November 2023 

We enjoyed the Sanctuary and the Bunk House. I can't imagine a better or more accommodating place to stay for a large group. Even with our large tribe, it never felt crowded. There's lots of seating and tables, including a private patio with more seating and games to play. My mom, who required an ADA location, was able to be included in all of the activities. Each space was kept clean and the staff were friendly and helpful whenever we interacted with them. I would give them more than 5 stars if I could.

This place was perfect for our bachelorette party of 16. It's very private and the hosts and staff were very supportive, attentive and kind. We had the absolute best  time and the beachy vibes were perfect for our group.

Guest Review, Hotel guest review


July 2023 

"It was near impossible to find anything in San Diego in one location for this big of a group. I was fortunate to find Good Life Vacation Rental. They have large group accommodations that can host a whole team. In addition they have plenty of outdoor patio space for the group to hang out, grill and bond. The location was ideal and public transportation was nearby and downtown was 10 min away." 

Airbnb guest review


July 2023 

"The resort is unbeatable. Each space is very large with tons of amenities and things to do, we could have just stayed on site all weekend and had a blast. Had 24 people between 3 buildings all on their own yet just a few steps away, with everyone in their own bed, and plenty of space. The public spaces were also awesome as it was a great place to meet up and get everyone together at. The location was also perfect as it was a short cheap Uber to anywhere we wanted to go. Highly recommend to any type of group as there is privacy, amenities, and location that could fit any trip, thanks again!!"

"We had a large family and friend reunion down in San Diego and we rented out the entire resort. Every family got their own house, while also having plenty of entertaining and common area space for us to celebrate and have fun. It was clean, had super fast Wifi and there were lots of small touches that made this place unique and perfect for our large family and friend gathering. I would highly recommend."

"Had a large group stay there in the bungalow suites. It was top notch service and great experience. Would highly recommend especially if you need to accommodate large groups."


July 2023 

"There is really no other property in San Diego that can provide what Good Life Resorts does. We hosted our company holiday party onsite in the event space and were easily able to house our many out-of-town employees. The rooms and living spaces were clean and well thought out and working with the owner and staff was a breeze. Would highly recommend their rentals (and event spaces) to anyone coming in with a big group."

"Great airbnb for 12+ person group. Very accommodating and the beach area was a great spot to hang out and relax. 10 minutes to downtown. Would highly recommend this location when visiting San Diego." 

Guest Review in San Diego


July 2023 

"If you'd like to have your cake and eat it too, then look no further. The house is designed to fit a dozen people or more but still feels like a connected, communal space. Its large, mostly open floor plan is perfect for parties or events in which bonding is a principal goal, but everyone still has their own private room thats comfy and inviting. The location is only a few minutes from downtown San Diego, the Gaslamp quarter, and all of the associated nightlife, but the moment you set foot inside, you feel totally secluded."

"If you are looking for a place in San Diego to book your next group outing THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO. The property itself was massive with a large hangout area with full bar, hammocks, plenty of chairs and sandy play area with corn hole and other games. The first night we arrived, we had the whole area to ourselves. Even throughout the weekend, it was never too full. Not only that, you can walk through the entire property without going to the street."
