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.

There is free parking on the street in front of our house. There is also a bus stop two blocks from our house that will take you to central transfer points downtown for accessing other areas of the City. We are only about 5 miles from the airport which is just a short drive or taxi ride.
Other Things to Note
We have a sweet miniature schnauzer, Max, who loves people. He may greet you with a few barks, but quickly warms up to you. He is an old guy so he moves kind of slow. He is the ultimate lap dog. His favorite thing is curling up on our lap while we visit with our guests.

Mike and Neil were very welcoming and kind hosts. They made us a delightful breakfast and we enjoyed spending a couple of hours just chatting with them on their AMAZING patio. The descriptions are very accurate, the house is impeccably clean and well-decorated - beautiful Craftsman in a GREAT neighborhood. We could walk from their house to many restaurants, stores and Balboa Park. We would definitely stay with them again.
I can't say enough kind things about Neil and Mike. They were the perfect hosts, giving us a tour of the house upon arrival, showing us the appropriate doors to use, light switches and space in the fridge for our snacks. They were so warm and welcoming, it was like staying with family. In celebration of our engagement during our visit they even included us in their Saturday morning breakfast on the patio – so yummy and thoughtful. Their little pup Max was a sweetheart – it's always great to have some fur babies to love on while you're away from home.
We only stayed a short two nights, but in that time Neil and Mike made sure we had everything we needed, suggested fun things to do around town, and even had bagels and coffee in the morning for us! The neighborhood is the best in San Diego; NorthPark is full of nightlife, shops and restaurants, while not being too crowded and still maintaining that neighborhood feel. Overall, we were very pleased with our experience.
Had a great and relaxing time staying with Neil and Mike. The house is impeccable and both are engaging and great to talk to; got great suggestions for a night out in Hillcrest. It was a pleasure staying at their home and Max is not as rowdy as they make him sound; he is lovely! Next time I am in the SD area I will be sure to check their availability.
Everything about our stay was wonderful. Exactly as advertised. Pictures did not actually do the garden space justice. Only regret was not having more time to relax. Very good location. Able to walk to San Diego Zoo (be wary of the hills).
Nos hôtes ont été attentionnés à notre arrivée. La maison était très propre et très fonctionnelle.
La maison est située dans un quartier sécuritaire et près des attraits touristiques.
Nous avons beaucoup aimé notre séjour chez ce couple fort sympathique.
Le jardin, avec ses meubles de rotin est très agréable.
Neil & Mike are the perfect hosts! They were so welcoming & easy to coordinate with.. they are genuinely wonderful people. Their home is a dream and is located in the most ideal location for exploring the city. Parking was super easy, the house is walking distance from everything wonderful North Park has to offer. I visit San Diego often, always staying in North Park. This has been, by far, my favorite airbnb to date. Their home was beautifully designed, quiet, clean, and their dog was super sweet. Couldn't have asked for a better stay.
