Description for 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.
Depending on availability, you may select from this room or two other bedrooms. Here's a description of the other 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 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. 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 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. Most destinations are approximately 30 minutes to an hour away. 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.
You will have access the whole house and outside.
Interaction with Guests
We will interact as much as you like or leave you to your privacy.
We have a list of activities you may be interested in participating in your room.
It's best by car at our location, but bus transportation is available within a mile. Parking is easy here on the street and spots are always available. From the airport, you may take a taxi, but it will be around $35. They do have shuttles as well for less. There are car rentals close to us.

**No inside smoking, and no disposal of cigarettes in the landscaping or in trash cans inside the house.
**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. Thanks!
My son and I stayed at Pamela and Neil's and we had a wonderful experience. It was my first AirBnB experience and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. The house was exactly as shown.
It was a wonderful room, very cozy. The house was decorated well and so was the room. Everything was very clearly outlined and defined in the instructions the host left. Internet worked great. Microwave and mini fridge was in the room which was awesome. Big tv and comfy beds. It was 10 minutes away from comic-con which was great for avoiding comic-con madness while we were participating in the madness. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks so much
Nice stay in San Diego at this comfortable home. Hosts were super nice and made us feel right at home. Good location.
We felt very welcome at Pamelas place. She welcomed us when we arrived, although we arrived very late at night and made sure that everything was fine. The room we stayed in was nice, clean and cozy and so was the rest of the house. Pamela provided us with a folder full of information about the house and information about San Diego and its sights. The location of the apartment is in short driving distance to many interesting spots in San Diego. We also had some great conversations with Pamela and she helped my girlfriend when she was feeling sick. It was a very pleasant stay! We really enjoyed staying there and the only thing that we would love to change next time is that we would like to meet her husband, too!
Pam has a lovely home and was a fantastic host. A friend and I stayed in the Twin Room which was very comfortable with great amenities. I would highly recommend Pam's home for anyone staying in the area.
Super good price, really nice house, nice people. Location is a little out of the way of things (15-20 mins to downtown).

About the Host, Pamela
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!
