Private and quiet detached guest house in North Park, one of San Diego's best neighborhoods, close to Balboa Park, downtown and Hillcrest.

The space

Our guest house is a private, detached two-story structure behind our main home, perfect for an individual or couple. It has a private entrance and parking spot accessible from the alley. There is also a front entrance if you arrive without a car.

The ground floor features a comfortable sofa, high speed wifi and TV, which gets a few local channels and has access to Hulu.

You will have a full kitchen with gas stove, dishwasher, fridge/freezer with ice maker, microwave, toaster, hot water pot and French press as well as an espresso pot. There is also a washer/dryer as well and a space heater if needed.

The private patio area has a small table and two chairs for sitting/dining outside.

On the upper level there is a queen-size bed and a small desk with chair that can function as a laptop work station. The A/C unit is located upstairs as well.

**Just FYI - We will eventually be adding a deck/patio that will be accessible from the second story, that's why we have a door installed upstairs ;)

Guest access

Guests will have their own private parking spot behind the unit. You will access it through our alley behind the house.

If you are traveling without a car, the guest house also has a front entrance you can access by walking straight back up the driveway of our main house.

Interaction with guests

We will give you your space and privacy, but we are more than happy to meet you and answer any questions you might have about the area if you'd like. Please let us know if you need anything at all during your stay.

Other things to note

We take pride in providing a clean, quiet and well-appointed space for our guests. We hope to make your stay as comfortable as possible. In return we hope for respectful guests that treat our home as if it was their own.

We can sometimes accommodate earlier check-in or later check-out, so just ask!

Lovely house located within 15 minutes of all the main areas of San Diego. Located on a quiet area close to the park and supermarkets. House is nicely decorated and has the biggest washing machine and tumble dryer that we have every seen! Never met Linda but she was always quick to respond to emails, if we needed anything.

This was our very first Airbnb and we absolutely loved it! The guest house was just as it is in the pictures: clean and comfortable. The guest book came in extremely handy and helped us navigate to some recommended places to eat. The neighbourhood is friendly and safe and we felt relaxed strolling about. Although we didn't meet face to face, Linda was really helpful in contacting to make sure we knew how to get there etc. I would definitely recommend staying here!

First of all the studio: it's an amazing place, tastefully decorated, super spacious and totally separated from Linda's own home. The kitchen downstairs is fully equipped and there is a big and very comfortable bed upstairs. The bathroom is clean and again fully equipped. Location wise, it is ideal for reaching Balboa park and just a 10 minute drive from San Diego's downtown. Would definitely stay there again! Now, about our host Linda: Linda was amazingly helpful from the start, explaining in detail how to access the studio. During our stay We had a small accident that required immediate medical attention and Linda was most helpful to answer our questions and make recommendations.

Linda's place was perfect for our weekend getaway. The space is exactly as it looks in pictures but even more stunning with the high ceilings. The AC worked well upstairs and everything was clean. Location was great for getting to pretty much anywhere in downtown SD within 15 mins. We loved this space and hope to be back someday!

Linda's place is absolutely amazing. It was well designed, stylish and has everything you need. Check in was so easy. We were an hour early and Linda had no problems accommodating us. Location is great just a short drive to downtown and the beaches. Will definitely stay here again next time we are in San Diego.
