It boasts 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, hardwood floors, handcrafted built-ins and wood detailing throughout, a fully equipped upgraded chef's kitchen with Viking range, 2 fireplaces, a private garden with pool and spa, spacious front porch, and private off-street parking with electric car plug-in.

Interaction with guests

I am an off-site host. I am always available by phone or text to accommodate my guests needs. I coordinate with guests for their arrival, meet them at the home to provide keys, alarm code and instructions for the security system, and ask that guests text upon their departure. I aim to give my guests all the privacy and comforts of their own home.

The neighbourhood

South Park is in a beautifully maintained historic pocket of San Diego. It is a quiet, vibrant, and walkable community with premier restaurants, wine bars, pubs, eclectic boutiques, and the Balboa Park Golf Course. Within a block of the house is San Diego's top-rated Italian restaurant Buona Forchetta, an organic juice bar, yoga studio and gym, and a lovely locally owned and operated gourmet market that offers a large selection of speciality beer and wine, a delicious full-service delicatessen, organic coffee bar, and sidewalk cafe. Every creature comfort you need is within walking distance and the neighborhood is great for an evening stroll down the softly lit tree-lined streets. It is an urban eco-minded area with a small town vibe that will make you feel right at home.

The house is perfectly located to access all of San Diego by car, bus, Uber/Lyft, or taxi. If you have a car there is private driveway parking equipped with an electric car plug in. "Decobike" San Diego's new bike sharing is available just a few blocks away where you can rent by the hour/day/week.

The house was beautiful and clean. It had a wonderful garden, patio and hot tub/pool. We also loved the neighborhood, walking distance to lots of great restaurants and a terrific deli, and I took advantage of running in nearby balboa park. I stayed here for a meeting at the convention center, which was a short uber ride away

This property is an amazing find and everything is first-rate! Brianna was attentive to our needs plus there were fresh flowers and an amazing garden on offer -- we loved the pick your own aspect. Our stay was restful and fun - the pool and spa were salt water with a great patio for lounging. The kitchen range and general set up were amazing - gas cooking is our family chef's favorite way to go. For outings, the zoo is quite close by, as is Old Town, downtown and the airport. This was really the perfect place from which to get to know San Diego; we loved the experience!

This beautifully restored craftsman is a gem! Comfortable and updated with technology required for today's living, it retains a real charm. While my boyfriend attended a 4 day conference, I relaxed, worked a bit, cooked, swam and read outdoors poolside, listening to the fountain and visiting birds. Convenient to downtown and the convention center (short cab ride), its location in South Park is a wonderful place to walk and find local shops and restaurants. Quiet and safe. Brianna, the host, was lovely, offering advice on local places and more. Master bedroom has a nice flat screen (that we never turned on) and an inviting, super comfortable bed! There is a second bedroom in the front of the house with its own bath. Kitchen with it great stove, microwave, and toaster oven was fully equipped for preparing meals, to be carried out the side door for easy access to the outdoor dining table that beckoned under strung lights in the evening. One cool evening we lit a small fire in the gas-facilitated outdoor fireplace and enjoyed wine after spending time in the solar heated hot tub. Delightful! Overall---Simply Lovely! Would highly recommend for one or two couples, or a small family.

Everything about our stay was exceptionally delightful. Brianna was professional, responsive and gracious. The home itself was impeccable, and it was such a treat to "live" there for a couple of weeks. The neighborhood is fantastic - safe and very walkable to neighborhood shops and restaurants, and central to everything we wanted to drive to. I really can't recommend this listing highly enough - we certainly hope to return and enjoy it again in the future.

Spectacular. Exactly as promised. Everything about the house was wonderful, pools, garden, rooms. 5 star, top of the line house! Our flight was delayed and our host was very considerate and accommodating. The house was beautiful, the amenities were amazing. Very private and in a great neighborhood. It was like having a second home. Very easy, our family enjoyed each and every moment. Highly recommended for a very special place to stay while in San Diego. Market just down the street was wonderful.

It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Brianna. She was incredibly welcoming and very knoeledgeable about the house and the city. She got in touch with me right away and prior to our arrival which really helped trust the whole process. We loved the house, the garden, the pool and hottub and all the personal touches like fresh flowers, coffee, cream, tea etc. One does hear the planes coming in but it really didn't bother us at all. I highly recommend Brianna and I would come back to stay at the house again.

Hi :)

I lived in San Diego nearly 20 years & love the diversity of this city. I'm a huge traveler and have always been a fan of staying in B&B's so it's been such a great experience getting to be a host and share my home. My goal as a host is to provide a unique space that's clean and comfortable that you can enjoy as your own.

I also have the incredible opportunity of managing other listings, this enables me to offer a nice array of home types to accomodate any guest. It is such a privilege to expand upon the amazing experience of hosting in my own home (please see my other listings attached to my profile). I have a larger two bedroom great for a group of friends or a family, offer the luxury of a pristinely restored Craftsman home complete with a private pool and spa perfect for a romantic retreat/weekend getaway, as well as a fantastic bedroom nestled in the canyons of the Hollywood Hills. I look forward to offering the most enjoyable experience in all of my listings.

Cheers :)
