We do have cats, and have had several people stay with allergies. All have said that they did not experience problems. 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.

Back yard:
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 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.

  • We had a wonderful stay at this home! Pamela and Neil were very friendly and gave us lots of advice about the city. The rooms were clean and artfully decorated. It would have been nice to know that some bathrooms are shared. Our kids loved the pool and met several other really nice guests. Overall, a great family experience!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Pamela's and Neil's lovely home. It is every bit as pretty as the pictures shown, and even more. We brought our two grandchildren with us and they had a separate bedroom with access to the pool, and our bedroom had its own private bathroom. The beds were extremely comfortable and we felt the privacy of a hotel room. We also had some interesting conversations with Pamela and Neil as well as two Scottish ladies who were staying there. It was great to sit out and enjoy the pool and private area outside.

    Neil and Pamela were very gracious hosts. We always felt comfortable and would definitely stay there again.

  • This is a great home for a San Diego visit. Our whole family stayed for a wedding in Balboa Park and the location worked very well including trips to Downtown SD and La Jolla. Everything you need is there and the home is beautiful inside. Highly recommended!

    Response from Pamela:

    This guest and I corresponded 3 months ago to cancel this reservation. Due to a misunderstanding with Airbnb, the reservation remained open and therefore shows as a last minute cancellation.

  • We had a good stay at this peaceful house, which was not too far north of Downtown San Diego. Loved the pool and the chickens in the back yard! And the adorable cats. Pamela and Neil keep a very clean place which they clearly take a lot of pride in.

  • We stayed at Pam and Neil's place for a week and had a wonderful time. The house had everything we could possibly need to enjoy our stay: bbq and fully equipped kitchen; luxurious bedding; jacuzzi, pool, and lovely landscaped outside patio areas; dvd's and movie viewing with comfy sofa's. It was really conveniently located, approx 10 to 20 minutes to drive to attractions and destinations on our list: Balboa Park and all the attractions there; Point Loma; Solano Beach and Del Mar beach area.

    We wish we are still in San Diego and staying at Pam's place.

  • Me and my three kids (16, 13, and 11) had a wonderful time in San Diego. Neil and Pam's home was very nice. It was central to EVERYTHING and we were less than 15 minutes from all of our target destinations. The Larson's were gracious hosts who treated us not like guests but more like family. Their recommendations and tips made the trip more pleasurable. Look forward to returning to San Diego one day in the future and have no hesitations with staying there again.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Pamela’s over Thanksgiving. The house is cozy and has the most beautiful paintings done by Pamela. The kitchen, although small, was fully equipped and worked out great for cooking up dinner. We especially loved the 5 bantam chickens in the backyard cage who laid eggs (No noise from chickies but kittys did not like being kept out of the house so better to let them in and scamper about.) Only one shower so be aware. We would definitely stay here again the next time we’re in 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!
