Interaction with Guests
We love interacting with our guests. For example, one of our favorite things is getting to know our guests over a glass of wine in the courtyard or during breakfast on the outdoor patio. We have met so many wonderful people through Airbnb from throughout the world. It is such a great way to get to know people and learn about other cultures.

Other Things to Note

San Diego is a great city, Neil and Mike are good guest. They are quite friendly and ready for any questions. The bedroom and bathroom are well prepared when we arrived. Like the community environment, it is also very closed to the big park, and can walk to some restaurant to eat.
Neil and Mike were extremely welcoming and gracious hosts. They have a lovely and comfortable home that is very close to the zoo, North Park downtown area, and the Balboa Park trails. They invited us to share their wine and snacks and we really enjoyed our conversation. I would recommend them to anyone and I would definitely stay with them again!
Where do we begin but to say we sincerely felt at home and with friends. Neil and Mike have a wonderful home, even better than the listing. We enjoyed 4 days with them and their sweet dog, we were welcomed with open arms and some nice chocolates by the bed. The room and bed were very comfortable but our favorite part of the home is the patio. So very relaxing, a great spot to watch hummingbirds and listen to parrots. We loved the neighborhood, very convenient. Neil and Mike were very helpful in suggesting places to eat or explore and even helpful with directions. We enjoyed our conversations and delicious magaritas. All we can say is that we can't wait to visit our friends again.
Neil & Mike were welcoming from before I even arrived! The location, house and room were all great and exactly as described. If I come back to the US & San Diego in the near future I won't hesitate to book with Neil & Mike again due to both their super hospitality and clean and tidy house. Thanks so much for having me.
Thank you Neil and Mike for being such
lovely hosts while staying in the most tranquil, relaxed home! They agreed to greet us earlier than our anticipated time(since we were up @ 3:30 a.m.!)
Their home decor reflects that of a California Bungalow style. Very tastefully decorated. The neighborhood feels safe, parking was easy. Our bed comfortable. San Diego was experiencing a heat wave of humidity, we so appreciated the ceiling fan
in our room, and the additional moments of
air conditioning that were provided. We loved having conversation with both Neil
and Mike in the evenings upon our return of rather long days of touring San Diego. I enjoyed cuddling up with their dog Max. We will definitely consider a stay with them again when revisiting San Diego.
Much love, JoAnn & Ty
We very much enjoyed to stay in Neil's and Mike's house in San Diego. They were great hosts and I had interesting discussions with them. The location is fantastic, walking distance away from great restaurants, shops, etc.. Thanks a lot for everything.
Staying at Neil and Mike's was one of those especially nice experiences you sometimes get while traveling. We felt very comfortable. Neil and Mike were such gracious hosts.
They have created an oasis especially in the outside patio areas. It
reminds one of the quaint narrow sidewalks of southern Italy with the paving stones but the ferns and greenery makes it feel so gentle. The craftsman-style house is lovely and extremely clean. It is a wonderful place and they made us feel very welcome.
