Great time at Marys! I was only swooping in for a good nights sleep, and I sure got it. Comfy bed, nice room, and great bathroom. She even let me do a load of laundry overnight. Mary is very welcoming and her house was a great pit stop for me. Thanks again!
Been awhile since I visited San Diego and staying with Mary and her family made it a good experience. Home was as described and easy to find using my phone map app. Communication before trip was helpful and I would recommend Mary's home away from home.
Mary, thanks for your warm hospitality. You made me feel welcome. I felt very comfortable, as if I were staying at a friend's home!
Mary's kindness and consideration made my one week stay perfect. I had my independent bathroom downstairs, and I could use the kitchen any time I wanted. This place is a perfect combination of secludedness and convenience. H Mart is within 5 minutes' drive. The Boiling Crab is super close and as you know, the seafood tastes the same but no line at all. If you are a fan of hot spring bath, there is a place called House of Siloam which is about one hour's drive to the north. When I left, Mary gave me a little present for Christmas. I will definitely choose to stay in Mary's house if I ever visit San Diego again. Thank you Mary for making me feel at home. I wish you and your family a fruitful and healthy 2015!
I really loved my stay at Mary's house! She and her family are wonderful people and hosts. Mary was very helpful both before and during my trip. Whenever I needed information or advice, she was there for me. I felt very comfortable the minute I arrived. The room is clean and very nicely arranged. I highly recommend her as a host and the room at her house as a place to stay at. Thank you Mary, it was just awesome!
Mary provided an Extremely warm welcome. Once she committed to accepting me as a temporary resident online, she and her family made sure they didn't miss a beat in securing my comfortability. She allowed me complete privacy, all way remaining just a phone call away for any service possibilities, which there was none. The home was very clean, which made me even more relaxed and there was one other tenant at the time who was a total gentleman, minded his business as did I. She does a great job as screening so you wont have to be concerned about who the other person is next door. I was there for about 12 days and they went fast. It was a fabulous experience and if I ever had to do it again, I would, without question. Thank you Mary & family. I greatly appreciate your hospitality.
The evening I arrived Mary and her siblings were just returning from the hospital where their mother died that afternoon. She was so kind and gracious even though she was grieving her loss. Her two children are delightful and so respectful. Their dog, Pauly, was the sweetest, most loving, also, so well-trained, too. She was not allowed near the bedrooms and only stayed in one area of the house.
The living room is just as pictured. Gorgeous.
The bedroom has a little different look. Some of the furniture has been changed to other places and a new cover was on the twin bed. Lovely! The bathroom was as pictured.
Overall, a lovely environment and a kindhearted respectful family.

I love to travel and have done a lot, so it's fun for me to host and meet people coming to visit our beautiful city. I'm a graduate of San Diego State University (SDSU) and fell in love with the city when I came down here for school - basically lived here majority of time since (don't ask how long ago that was - ha). I have lived in and visited other countries and know what it's like to be a guest; I try to be sensitive to traveller's needs. I am also very understanding of kids and have two of my own, so your kids are welcome.
I've been having a great time with Airbnb - come on over for a visit!
