Great hosts! Highly recommend them. Their location is pretty central to all things in San Diego. Really comfy couch :)
Galina and Tristan are very nice and guest friendly Hosts. Couch was more comfortable than expected, room and bathroom were clean. Would visit them again.
Tristan and Galina live in the best area of San Diego in my opinion. Great places around for coffee, food and nightlife.
The house was nice a snug and the bed was super comfy.
Great hosts and a great bed.
Thanks so much for having us.
Galina and her family were really great although they had a very busy time and a worse night before. The room and bed were amazing and comfy. Sadly we had just a short time in San Diego so we hadn't much time with Galina as well.
Thanks for a nice stay. :)
I just needed a place to crash before my flight the next morning.
Galina and her husband were friendly and interesting. I'd only paid for the sofa bed but got upgraded to a private room which was great.
A nice cheap place to crash.
Thank you for hosting us at such a short notice! Great and affordable place to stay for a short time!

About the Host, Galina & Tristan
Hello there, we are a family of three, my husband works predominantly from home and I'm a SAHM, but we promise we won't get in your way! :)
We got started doing Airbnb shortly after staying for the first time at an AirB&B in London a few years ago, we not only loved it but also decided that it was the best way for anyone to travel other than camping! For a family, or people with pets its especially convenient... Leave the cold and sterile hotels for business, not adventure.
My favorite TV series:
1) Call the Midwife. (BBC)
2) Master and Margarita. (Russian)
3) I Claudius. (British)
Free wifi, open late (12am), serve beer, great for lap-tops, young and hip.
Healthy food store, healthy treats, great deals on veggies and a great protein powder and supplements section.
Great place to study, cozy, free wifi, open late (till 11pm), tasty food, relaxing atmosphere.
Typical meal around $10
Very high quality produce, taste the difference! The best treats you will find anywhere.
The healthiest store in the USA plus you will feel like on holiday there it's so pretty and pleasant. Great takeaways too.
Beautiful big zoo with everything in it!
Supposed to be even cooler than the zoo for kids! They even have fake snow...
Closest beach to us. There are fireplaces where you can have a barbecue and watch the sunset...
A must see for couples. Go around 4-5pm to catch the sunset... Sit on the edge of cliffs and be careful seriously!
