Stunning house, with a great garden area. Unfortunately we weren't blessed with great weather so we couldn't utilise it as much as we would have liked. The kitchen and dining area is high quality we loved cooking and eating here. Ricardo was a good host and when asked to open up the laundry area he came straight away to do so which was good.

Ricardo's place is perfect. Short walk to Uni. Beautiful two bedroom home. Lovely outdoor seating. We enjoyed our stay, and we would certainly recommend it.

Ricardo's place was perfectly clean and we loved the neighborhood -- within walking distance to restaurants and grocery stores and five minutes from the attractions at Balboa Park. We also loved the private yard -- it felt like we had a hotel suite all to ourselves! A great place for our family to stay. Ricardo even had a pack n' play and inflatable mattress for the kids. As others have noted, bring your own coffee and other kitchen staples if you plan on taking advantage of the kitchen.

Response from Ricardo:
So happy to read that you enjoyed your stay Sara, thank you so much:) Coffee was in the cabinet next to the fridge, also there were all oils, spices and herbs. I will make sure to place them in the counter where they more visible for my guests. Hope to see you back very soon and thank you so much again, it was a pleasure being your host :)

Definitely home away from home. We very much enjoyed our stay. Definitely recommended for those who like some quiet but very accessible to nightlife, Balboa Park and much more. Definitely luxury with comfort which both of us really enjoy. Almost forgot the backyard is incredible, it is set up for a delightful barbecue.

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 :-)
