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.
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.

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.
