Location, location, location! That certainly applies to Ricardo's place on Vermont Street in Hillcrest. It is a short walk, 4 blocks, to University Avenue, where you will find a supermarket, Trader Joe's, a post office, and numerous restaurants and coffee houses. One block away, just off Cypress Avenue with its lovely homes and charming little Free Library where residents can exchange books, is a path through one end of Balboa Park. Ricardo's place is a small house, with a comfortable, spacious living room, one bedroom, one bath, a modest kitchen, and a pleasant and sunny front patio, comfortably furnished. A fenced-in private back parking area also houses a large washer and dryer, conveniently saving interior space. Hillcrest, which boasts the best Farmer's Market in San Diego every Sunday, is convenient to many of San Diego's other delightful neighborhoods (Mission Hills, University Heights, North Park) and the many attractions that San Diego has to offer. It is highly recommended as a place to stay.

Ricardo's villas are exactly what you want in an airbnb. We stay in SD quite a bit, and it's hard to find a place that matches the location, the amenities and the charm. Ricardo also continues to make everything easy and is very responsive. We highly recommend booking at the San Diego Villa.

The reason we enjoy Ricardo's properties so much is that each is tastefully remodeled, with a mind to comfort and ease of stay. There is always easy parking, and easy access. There is always a nicely appointed kitchen, and everything works. The properties always have quiet areas to dine and some feature that makes it feel like a better getaway than just home someplace else. The main reason why we keep coming back though is that Ricardo makes things very easy. It feels like coming home, just pull up and come on in. Private. Ours. Ricardo is a fabulous host. We highly recommend this villa and his other villas in PB and the Grand Villa as well.

I came to San Diego for the ASH meeting and stayed in Ricardo's place for several nights. The house was located in a residential area and was very quiet, clean, great WIFI, and was equipped with all the necessary amenities. Ricardo was very quick in responding to my messages too. There were nearby bus stops and so I had no trouble going to the convention center and downtown area. Wholefoods supermarket was also in a nearby walking distance so had no problem buying foods and groceries. There is a parking space so if anyone has a car I am sure they can use it. The place was lovely and I am sure that future guests will love this place!

If you are traveling to San Diego this is a great place to stay. Ricardo has clean modern space. For less than the price of a high end hotel you get better amenities plus private parking to boot. The parking is a big plus since that is always an added expense in SD. The place is a $6 Uber ride from Old Town, Gaslamp, Little Italy and the Embarcadero. It is also 1 block from Balboa Parks hiking trails. So whatever you don't rent this place so it will be available next time we are in town! All kidding aside rent from Ricardo for a great experience.

Ricardo User ProfileRicardo is a superhost.

I am Ricardo, and I would love to make my homes available to you on your travels! I love to travel, have been quite a few places. Renting from other Airbnb users is my favorite way to stay on my trips, is always a wonderful experience, it makes you feel right at home in a new location, plus, it is a really fun way to meet new people. Living in San Diego is amazing, I love all types of food, wine, entertainment and local beer; all IPAs are my favorite. I like live music, festivals, bars, and clubs. I like being positive and being around positive and fun people, and simply doing the things that makes me happy :-)
