My cozy 1400 sf home is located in historic Bankers Hill, next to I-5, near the airport. I am 1 block from Little Italy, 7 blocks to Balboa Park, 6 blocks from the Harbor, and 1 mile to Gaslamp Quarter.

With 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and 2 living rooms, I am walking distance to most EVERYTHING in the city center (museums, bars, restaurants, nature).

Near the trolley, train, and airport, you almost don't need a car to see the city from my home.

The space

There are two living rooms - one per floor - which is excellent for travelers that want to stay together, but also have their own space.

My two story home is eclectically shaped like a triangle and enjoys views of downtown, the Interstate 5, and Little Italy.

Downstairs has a kitchen/dining area, living room, bedroom and a bathroom. Flooring is tile and carpet.

Upstairs is the loft area. A comfy living room with view/picture windows, real hardwood floors, an open/loft bedroom, bathroom, and a patio balcony (overlooking the Interstate and the city skyline).

This home is actually my personal residence. The furniture is Pottery Barn, Bassett, and custom pieces ... not your typical "rental unit" furniture.

Guest access

No keys. There is an electronic lock - I change the passcode for each guest, so you can be assured none else knows the current code.

You can access the whole house, upstairs and downstairs, and the patio balcony looking at downtown. It's rented for you and your guests, there is no sharing with me inside the house during your stay.

There is also outdoor patio seating. This area is shared with the neighbors.

There is a small outdoor 2nd story deck, which catches nice breezes and city views.

Interaction with guests

I'm told I'm easy to get along with, and I like people to be happy. At times, I can be very busy, but I would be happy to give a quick tour of the area when you check in, or just give advice about the area.

Other things to note

Please note the home is near the airport, and I am next to Interstate 5 (Little Italy is on the other side of the Interstate). It is an energetic environment, full of energy and movement.

Little Italy is a tourist center, attracting both locals and visitors alike. It's great for dinner and drinks, as well as for boutique shopping or just hanging out at cafe's.

Bankers hill tends to be more residential, but there are a few nice spots there too. Although its mainly residences, there are a few nice restaurants tucked into the neighborhood.

The whole area is full of locals and visitors alike. As we are a fair weathered city, there can be homeless folks in the streets. They usually keep to themselves and do not approach you. (Many facilities and programs that cater to the needs of the homeless are located downtown).

We love staying at Manuel's place! It's so close to he Airport, walking distance to Little Italy and downtown. We love going to dinner and then strilling to the bay to walk it off. It's also convenient to hopping on the freeway. The home is clean, comfortable, and the beds are dreamy! AC is extra special!!!

Manuel was wonderful to work with and the place was cozy and convenient to everything we wanted to do. We were there for a wedding and having the my immediate family in the same place instead of in 2 hotel rooms was MUCH more comfortable. The laundry onsite was also very helpful. This place is just a block or two from Little Italy with lots of good restaurants and nightlife and only about 10 minutes to the airport. It is tucked behind another house so it feels nicely secluded inspite of being close to busy places.

Manuel's place was exactly what we had hoped for. Pictures don't do it justice. It is much bigger in person. We were getting ready for my daughter's wedding and were able to accommodate 8 guests plus our hair and make up team comfortably. We slept five without issue and Manuel brought us extra linens and more blankets to ensure that our stay was comfortable. This location is walking distance to Little Italy and the Beach or it is a 5 minute Uber from the great downtown night life. Manuel gave us great recommendations for local restaurants and made us feel very welcome.

Book this place ASAP! It is a total gem. The location is perfect, home is beautiful, and has a homey feel. We booked it for two couples and it was just enough personal space with two living space areas. We traveled between La Jolla and Tijuana during or stay while juggling a graduation. The location made it convenient to reach all our destinations, have a "home base" since there were 8 of us traveling and staying in different locations, and being so close to Little Italy was a great perk. Lots to see and do and you are walking distance to Little Italy, Seaport village, balboa park, and a quick Uber to the Gas lamp quarter/downtown. The host, Manuel is superb! He met us before check-in, showed us around the home and really made us feel welcome in his home. His local suggestions were great and allowed us to maximize our time in the area. The home is warm and inviting, beds comfortable with clean quality linens. The neighbors are friendly and quiet as well. Being able to do laundry on-site is also a great convenience. I would recommend this home for your stay and look forward to re-booking in the future as well.

Great two story home with plenty of room to relax and a very home-y feel. Manuel was easy to work with and even met us at the house to give us a little tour. The home is central to a lot of places that made it easy to just walk around. Thank you!!

Manuel User ProfileManuel is a superhost.

I renovate old houses, travel, and create music on my computer (and a guitar now and then). I love San Diego, the water, and hanging out in my neighborhood. You can find me in coffee shops, jogging at the park or beach, or hanging with my dad.

I speak English and Spanish fluently. I speak a little Russian having worked there once.
