Gene is a wonderful host. He picked up me from the airport and settled me down quickly in his apartment. The apartment is spacious, clean and comfortable. The location is excellent. It is about 10 minutes walk to the town of Hillcrest and several restaurants are in the town. Von supermarket is just cross street, public transportation is nearby. it is very convenient location. Gene is also very kind and friendly. I lost my cell phone in the second day of my stay. Gene helped me great deal to go through those days without cell phone. I definitely recommend Gene.

I stayed at Gene's with my girlfriend for an extended weekend. The apartment itself was very nice and clean, and Gene was extremely accommodating and personable. Would definitely recommend this AirBnB for anyone looking to spend some time in San Diego - I know we'll go to Gene's if we find ourselves in the area again!

Great apartment in a nice neighborhood! We stayed with Gene for Comic-Con and had a really good experience. The only warning I would make is that there is no air conditioning, so it was a little warm and stuffy in the middle of the summer. Someone from a warmer climate might not complain about it though.

Gene's place was very clean and inviting. He was very accommodating and even was willing to get a trial HBO account so we wouldnt miss the Game of Thrones season 7 premier. Very much appreciated. We also noticed that he did not price gouge. We were in town for my husband's birthday with happened to be the weekend of gay pride and the weekend before Comic-Con. Will stay here again if given the chance.

Can't go wrong with this place! It's located in the heart of San Diego. Only 10 min away from San Diego Zoo, and Balboa Park. Gene is also a great host!

Gene is the best! Don't hesitate on booking his room. Great room with a comfy bed and a private bathroom which was an added plus for my fiance and I. Gene was so welcoming and fun to chat with. My fiance and I have stayed in shared homes before and felt somewhat awkward but Gene made us feel at home. He also had amazing recommendations for food and stuff to do! The neighborhood is lively and welcoming. There is plenty to do within walking distance if you aren't interested in going far. We ended up liking his neighborhood more than any other part of San Diego. Don't miss out!

I am a retired biomedical research scientist whose research focused on pharmaceutical drug development for hard to treat cancers. I presently teach microbiology to pre-nursing students, perform stand up comedy at local clubs, and swing dance several times a week. I've opened my house to Airbnb members to meet people from around the world and hopefully make new friends . I'm originally from Pennsylvania, lived in Colorado, and wound up in San Diego where I've resided for 35 years. A perfect ending to a cross country odyssey. The reason I like it here? Very low key, or to put it more accurately, the chill vibe, the mix of people from the affluent to the not so well off, and living in a major city at the edge of the Pacific Ocean. I am very easy going and will leave guests alone or help them make the most out of their visit to San Diego. Whatever they feel comfortable with.
