The smallest/cheapest room in this mini-mansion is 125 square feet plus a walk in closet, plus a private vanity (and shared toilet and shower). Location is outstanding in this ultra-luxurious home! NOTE: Minimal furnishings. VERY comfy Airbed.

The space

This room is for the minimalist. It's very cozy and located in a stunning home in one of the most convenient locations in San Diego, but it's just a very comfortable Airbed (with memory foam topping), no dresser or furniture but a nice walk in closet with plenty of storage, small balcony and private vanity with shared toilet. We have other rooms that are filled with terrific furnishings, but this one is not it, and the price is reflective. If you would like a bigger room with more furnishings, I urge you to check out one of my other listings: or or

Guest access

Guest has their own private balcony with sliding door. Plenty of free, safe, and convenient parking on the cul de sac street directly in front of the house. We ask that you park anywhere in front or to the left of the home as you are facing the gate. There are numerous balcony and patio space that are quite stunning public areas that include a California State Sanctioned Butterfly Garden! We do have washer and dryer access for $6 per load. We do have washer and dryer access for $6 per load. We do have a 75 inch Samsung Smart TV in the Living Room with access to streaming media services such as Amazon and Netflix. We do offer limited access to our kitchen and guests may access the microwave and refrigerator but not the stove or oven. We can offer full kitchen accees for an additonal $25 per day. Please inform us at the time of booking to utilize this amenity.

Interaction with guests

Manager and housekeeper are often at the residence, but are always available by way of messaging through AirBnB. I know you'll enjoy Elda's hospitality and our host Matt to respond to any needs you have once you check in. You might even meet interesting travelers from all over the world who might be staying in another room in this estate.

Other things to note

Many of San Diego's finest restaurants are just over one mile from the house, so you will probably be tempted to eat out in Little Italy, but again, the stunning views and ambiance of this exclusive canyon retreat will make dining outside at the residence as good and romantic as it gets at any restaurant! Please note that we do not serve coffee, food or any beverage here. It is not legal for us to do this so we do want to remind guests that this is for room only. Fortunately, we are very close to one of the most unique urban neighborhoods in all the country: Little Italy of San Diego. You will find dozens of coffee shops and terrific restaurants here, which is about 1.5 miles.

We live a quiet life with no excessive habits. There is no smoking anywhere on the property. For the safety and courtesy to all guests staying here, the house becomes a "Quiet Zone" at 9:00 pm at night, but feel free to come and go at any hour! It is imperative that nobody be out on the balcony or back yard areas after 9:00 pm as our neighbors will hear everything. There are no parties allowed on the property. Guests are not allowed to bring other guests into the house that are not registered through AirBnB. All guests must show common courtesies and respect for the quiet property experience I create for all guests. We are very serious about our no smoking policy. If a guest breaks this rule, a $500 clean up fine will be placed on their account and they may be asked to leave.

All communications must go through the AirBnB app or web page. Unknown numbers that come into my phone by voice or text are not answered or responded to, but through the AirBnB systems, you'll be lucky to count to 10 before you get a response :)

Warning: we did not feel comfortable during out stay there. We didn't feel that the sheets, linens, and bathroom were clean. But more alarmingly, the place didn't feel safe, since we were in the company of other residents, and did not have a key to our private room.

Response from Sam:
This is not a fair review. This is a mansion in what is likely the safest part of San Diego without question. We live next door to one of the most prominent politicians in San Diego County and this neighborhood is incredibly safe, and tucked away in a canyon that has no through traffic. The house remains locked with high security. The owner lived here with AirBnB guests with his small son and it was safe enough for a child, so this review is inappropriate. Of course we cannot control a guests irrational fears, but we can control security, and we do a 5 star job at that. The guest thought that for the $50 they paid for the room, they got the entire 5,000 square foot house, and did not read our ad that clearly states it is just a one room rental in a home with other AirBnB guests - like nearly every AirBnB property. Next time I do highly suggest that this person pay for the entire home, which is available at this property for $695 per night, which is less than a Junior Suite at the Hyatt Regency down the street.

It's certainly a gorgeous property. I'm aware that I stayed in the smallest room and paid the lowest fare. That being said, the air mattress in the room was like sleeping on a bean bag and I had to constantly re-inflate it throughout my stay. The bathroom situation is not good because from this room (no noise insulation) you can hear the other guests' bodily noises whenever they are using the bathroom. I would have paid more not to experience this unpleasantry. The other thing I want to mention is that the previous reviewer noted that there is no key to the room to secure your belongings while you are gone should another guest wander in and have a look through your stuff. This is a very valid security concern, yet the host (Sam) wrote back, "we cannot control a guests irrational fears." It seems like the host did not understand that not wanting other people going through your stuff might be a very basic request for an AirBnb guest. If I had read his overly defensive and frankly arrogant response to the last reviewer, I would have cancelled my booking.
