Other Things to Note

It was really good to stay.. perfect :) and the hosts were really kind..! Thank you and see you next time!
Mike and Neil were hosts for our first stay using AirBNB, and they were great! Their place was exactly as described, the bed was comfortable, they were excellent hosts and we had a good stay. They make good coffee which is always a plus. We would happily stay there again and highly recommend them to anyone looking to stay in the area.
Excellent. well organized everything as expected, but the caring and hospitality are above and beyond.
N&M were fantastic hosts. We were in town for a wedding and to visit family, which didn't leave much time to personally get to know N&M, however they were extremely friendly and provided great area recommendations. We felt welcome in their home and would definitely stay again if ever in the area. Another added bonus is their home's walkability to a few great micro brew pubs!
Mike and Neil welcomed us early before our scheduled arrival time and made us feel very comfortable. They joined us on the patio for some great conversation and a bottle of wine and cheeses. Altho this was not our first time to San Diego, they had many suggestions and recommendations for things to do that we found helpful and made our trip that much more exciting. The accommodations were neat, clean and cozy and highly recommended. The location of their home was very convenient to restraunts and parks with good street parking. Loved the gardens and foilage around the yard.
The communication before arrival was excellent. All my questions were answered promptly. Neil and Mike were perfect hosts. The bedroom and bathroom were clean and the entire home is well cared for. I slept well and felt like I was staying with some old friends. I enjoyed being greeted in the morning by Max and checking my emails on the patio. Only wish I had more time to relax and enjoy the great neighborhood.
Neil and Michael made me feel welcome even before I arrived. They emailed to make sure they would be home to greet me. They were warm, friendly and most helpful. The house is beautiful and furnished with love and attention to detail. My room and bathroom were spotless. This was my first airbnb and I really lucked out! Oh, the review wouldn't be complete without mentioning Max, the sweetest dog ever!
