Here is a description of the rooms.
Master bedroom 1: Nicely furnished with a queen bed (it has a thermapedic topper), armoire, TV, DVD player, mini-fridge, Coffee maker, microwave, desk, and has its own nice bathroom with a shower. Although we have cats, they do not come into this room so it's good for allergy sufferers.
The Travel Twin bedroom: We have a really nicely furnished smaller twin bedroom with a shared hall bath. This has a trundle bed that pulls out for a separate twin bed or can be put together for a king size bed. Very comfortable mattresses (one has a Thermapedic topper), cushy comforters, TV, DVD player, mini fridge, desk, coffee maker, and microwave. It has its own access to the pool via French doors. Decorated with a travel theme. Cat free.
The Twin Corner bedroom: This room is a little larger than the Travel Twin and is furnished with two twin beds, linens, TV, desk, a mini fridge, coffee maker, and microwave. These are very comfortable Sealy Posturpedic beds. We can move them together for a king size bed, too. The room is light and airy and has some of my horse paintings as decoration. It shares the hall bath and is cat free. This room has French doors opening to the pool.
Master bedroom 2: This is the bedroom we occupy. Just remodeled to include its own beautiful bath. It has a king size bed, and TV. Exterior French door opens onto an atrium. Cats do go in this room, so it is not good for allergy sufferers.
The back yard pool is situated in a very tropical setting. The neighborhood is quiet, and there is plenty of street parking available next to our home. This is a very peaceful setting and a good place to get away from the hubbub.
We are located central to everything - 5 – 20 minutes by car to all activities: downtown, close to freeways 163, 8 and 5. Our location is 163 and Genesee - next to Sharp Hospital (walking distance), Rady Children's Hospital (walking distance), close to Mesa College, Fashion Valley Mall and Mission Valley Mall (one exit away), 5 miles to the beach (we bike there occasionally), USD (2.5 miles) and other colleges, and to the San Diego airport and Montgomery Field.
There is plenty of free on street parking next to our home.
Buses or public transportation:
Our home is a 15 minute walk to the bus line. For some destinations you will have to take a few buses. This is a better location by car unless you’re young and love to hike. There are no restaurants or shopping within walking distance, however we do give rides when we can.
We are a husband and wife - relaxed and fairly easy going middle aged (well, that’s debatable) professionals with some extra rooms. We work full time.
This is a smoke free, drug free, and drama free home. We are well traveled and understand the needs of a traveler. We are friendly but can leave you to your privacy. You truly will find this an escape, an awesome place to kick back, or be close to the action down town.
All common living spaces.
Interaction with Guests
We will chat with you as much as you like. Or we can leave you to your privacy.
Buses are about a mile away. It will take 30 minutes to an hour to go places by bus.
**The pool does not have a fence separately to enclose it, so be aware with children.
**No inside smoking, and no disposal of cigarettes in the landscaping or in trash cans inside the house. Please smoke on the side at the bottom of the steps.
** Be aware when you are cooking while using the cooktop. Do not let the pot get dry as it will ruin the glass top. This can be very expensive to replace.
**No after hours partying or noise after 10pm. No loud partying in the pool in the evenings - in regard for the neighbors.
**Please no eating on the beds or cosmetics on the beds. If you have sunscreen on, just roll back the comforters.
They met us upon arrival and explained the basic features needed to settle in.
Even though we didn't have the chance to spend too much time Tim Pamela and Neil, we can tell they are super friendly and nice people. their house is well designed, looks gorgeous yet cozy. Our parents enjoyed to spend sometime at their beautiful backyard, too. Recommend to everyone.
The house was beautiful. They really helped make an unforgettable weekend. I'd strongly suggest anyone who wants to stay in a beautiful home, to stay here
Pamela is so nice hostess, the family full of artist cratures. We love the house and our kids love the pool, we all have a grate time stay here. And definitely, we will choose here if we will come San diego again.
Our hosts were amazing, and so was the house! The bed was so comfortable and the pool and hot tub were great for relaxing after a long day. We will likely be back next year!
We loved staying at Pamela and Neil's house! It was exactly as described and the pictures were accurate. The bedrooms were set up quite nicely, the house was clean, and best of all, the location can't be beat. It was an easy drive to all the places we wanted to visit.
Pamela and Neil were gracious hosts. We'd bought out the entire house, so they stayed elsewhere, though Neil was in the garage frequently for his work. We never felt like we didn't have our privacy, though. And when we did interact, they were always the nicest people. We had a dental emergency during our stay and Pamela helped with a referral to an excellent dentist nearby, saving what could have been a ruined evening. They're seriously great people.
If you're looking for a party house, this isn't your place. If you're looking for a run down flop house, this isn't your place. If you're looking for a nice comfortable house in a quiet neighborhood, centrally located and owned by a super nice couple, then this is the house for you.
We rented the entire house (4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms) for a week over New Years. It was very comfortable for our family of 5. Kitchen is huge and high-end. Living room, dining room, kitchen are laid out in a spacious open floor plan, and tastefully decorated. Our kids enjoyed playing in the (small) swimming pool in enclosed back yard. The house is located in a typical residential neighborhood; felt very safe to go for a walk or jog. Our host Pamela was very responsive and helpful. We would love to stay here again next time we visit San Diego.

My husband Neil and I are hard workers , fun, appreciate humor (Neil keeps me laughing), can dance (me, Neil has two left feet), both fairly laid back, loves Italy, likes travel and exotic places, likes animals, loves art, electronically challenged. loves the coast, is a risk taker, leader and finally.....getting old...yuk! I work now full time from home. Neil has his own business that keeps him very busy. We have hosted guests now for 2 years and are having a great time getting to know people and becoming friends. This could become one of the funnest things we've done. Our motto here would be to make our guests as comfortable as possible and help them to enjoy San Diego. Look forward to welcoming you to our home!
