Interaction with guests

I leave that up to my guests. Sometimes I never get to meet the guests other times we chat every day. I consider myself friendly but conscious of others privacy.

Other things to note

PLEASE curb your wheels. The street parking is free and there are no restrictions - you can leave it there all day everyday.
When on a hill turn you front wheels to the left if facing up hill, and to the right if facing downhill.
Up and away, down and towards.

The room is cozy and cute. Just be aware that the bed is actually close to the entrance door. It is ok for me but I put it just to in case

I had a great time! The place was clean and spacious. The WiFi worked great, and the place was clean and had all the basic amenities. Street parking was easy and plentiful. Also, John was a great host and very responsive to any questions I had. The location is fantastic and really can't be beat. Just a few blocks to many restaurants and bars, as well as a short walk to Balboa Park and all it has to offer. Downtown SD is just a short car ride away. I'd also recommend checking out the Spruce St suspension bridge that's just a block away from the place. All in all, I highly recommend staying here for your San Diego trip!

This was the *best* Air bnb we could have rented for our trip. We were planning an anniversary trip to the zoo and the surrounding area and we couldn't have been more pleased. Hillcrest AND Gaslamp so there tons of restaurants and bars to visit in the evenings. Plus, because of it's proximity to everything, Lyft was super cheap! The apartment is an AMAZING value for the price. A private, beautiful little home with everything we could have needed! Plus tons of free local parking in a great neighborhood. John and Nellie were great hosts, super responsive whenever we needed anything, and we were just next door, so it was lovely to chat with them on the porches in the morning. John had some great recommendations for local restaurants and activities too! 10/10 we'll be back this summer and staying here for sure.

This is a lovely place with a certain charm in its furnishings and space. The location was perfect for a run to the airport and for a quiet walk in the neighborhood. A bit further to Balboa Park which gave us a great afternoon stroll. The owners are very hospitable and friendly. The outdoor patio is eclectic in decor and welcoming with tables and fire pit for a romantic stay.
