Stella and Richard were exceptional hosts. The accommodation is comfortable and Stella generously took us on a tour of San Diego on our first day. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

Richard and Stella are the most amazing hosts, awesome as they would say here. They were extremely welcoming and we spent a couple of evenings putting the world to rights over a glass or two. The house is exactly as it is depicted. It is extremely comfortable with every amenity you could possibly expect and more. The house is in a great location with being around 15/20 minutes from everywhere. Stella was a font of knowledge re where to go and how to get there and even took us on a short orientation drive which was extremely useful and kind. This was our first Airbnb experience and was an extremely positive one. If there was a super super host status they absolutely deserve it. We won't forget them, and if ever back in that part of the world would not hesitate in staying with them or recommending them. Thank you Richard and Stella and we hope to welcome you to Scotland one day. Carole and Douglas

Dear Carole & Douglas, just a final note to your beautiful review....thank you so much for your kind thoughts. You are (as we knew) quite a wordsmith Carole. An "awesome" pair are the two of you. Have fun with your daughter, and we will be thinking of you.

This is a little piece of paradise in San Diego! We stayed here with our 2 year old son, and found it a perfect spot to explore the city. (10 mins from down town sd, and even less to the zoo!) Stella and Richard are perfect hosts, and offered a lovely friendly welcome and everything we could need. Nothing was too much trouble. They are lovely :) They even stocked the fridge with bits for breakfast as we arrived late after a long flight from the uk! They are hugely knowledgable about the area, and gave great recommendations. The house is lovely, and the kitchen well stocked, including bits for kids (great for us as we were a little limited in going out with a toddler !) The last hidden gem here was the beautiful garden which was a perfect place to relax in the afternoons and evenings. We'd love to come back again, and will be sure to recommend this to any friends who visit California.

This was a great place to stay. Beautiful house with all we needed and they had left bagels, butter, jam and a bottle of wine for us too! We loved the neighbourhood and walked everywhere in San Diego from there. Really comfortable beds and Stella not only sorted out the blocked loo but left us cookies and a note afterwards! We will certainly stay there again if we go back to San Diego.

Richard and Stella are amazing hosts and they're place is everything you're looking for when staying in San Diego. Spacious, clean, beautiful decor and a stunning garden. The place is in a quiet neighbourhood but close enough to everything you want to see. All the little extras prepared by the hosts made us feel welcome and at home right away. We'll definitely come back to Sunny San Diego!

Richard and Stella could not have been more welcoming, helpful or friendly...they are perfect hosts. We were made to feel like visiting friends. Thank you. The house is very well appointed, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The neighbourhood is peaceful and safe yet very convenient to everywhere. I cannot recommend staying here highly enough. We didn't want to leave. We would definitely stay here again.

Stella and Richard provided an excellent accommodation for us during our week long stay in San Diego. The house is lovely, clean, with all the amenities and suitably located near Little Italy and downtown. Stella is a lovely hostess and took care of all our needs and even went out of her way to drop us downtown and catered to all our requests. They are wonderful hosts and this is reflected in their beautiful house that has a great vibe and energy and I would love to return to their house on future visits! I wish you both all the happiness and success in the new year!
