  • We love this place very much. Thank you Jessica for warm hospitality. Our daughter enjoyed so much playing with Skylar and Indy. I surely will recommend Lush Hideaway to friends.

  • My first and the best experience in airbnb. Jessica is one of the most thoughtful, kind, and interesting people I've met, also an ideal hostess with the best place. My family became good friends with Jessica, Sky, and Indy(her two adorable dogs) after our 3-day stay. She made a lovely home for us in San Diego by using her artistic talents and warm heart. Wish you the same luck we had for having a chance to visit with Jessica!

  • This is very very cozy and nice place to take a rest and enjoy the beautiful environment.
    Jessica and lovely two dogs welcomed us even we arrived her house late.
    And she prepared enough coffee in the morning and it made us very happy.

    Thank you, Jessica!!!

  • Jessica was amazing! She was a perfect host from start to finish. She thought of everything that could make the place feel like both a home and the most decked out bed and breakfast you could imagine. The house was beautiful and her pups were total charmers. My two friends and I had a great time and we dream of coming back!

  • It is my first time to use Airhnb .And I am so lucky to live in Jessica's home.Yes! It is more than a place to live. Jessica is very kind and the two dogs, Sky and Indy, are so lovely and cute. Really hope I can stay longer.

  • Jessica, Skyler & Indy are truely the ideal hosts. Our weekend retreat with Jessica, Skyler and Indy was sheer bliss from beginning to end. Jessica's place is clean, safe, artistic, warm, welcoming and beautifully decorated inside and out. She will treat you like royalty. Everything was perfect. The breakfast was delicious and she will accommodate any special requests. The garden is the perfect place to relax, read a book or simply unwind from the daily grind. We enjoyed playing with Indy & Skyler and they were very therapeutic and helped us relax and enjoy ourselves. We arrived with frowns and left with smiles. :) Thank you Jessica, Skyler & Indy.

  • Jessica是我美国的住家里最贴心,物品最齐全,房子最大最漂亮,最愿意咨询游客入住的一个。而且她家的2条狗也好好玩,sky实在是太热情了,andy还是个狗医生,太神奇了。最重要的是,早餐也准备的超多,让我们每天都吃得饱饱的去玩。她家附近一个超大的商场,而且家墨西哥的海鲜bar超好吃的,又便宜,我们连续吃了2天。Jessica太棒了,希望我下次来不要太热门而住不到。

  • We were so happy to find our "country" getaway at Jessica's Lush Hideaway! She was kind enough to accept a last minute booking and made us feel welcome from the moment we pulled into her driveway.

    Her home is immaculately clean and very charming. The guest quarters are completely private. We love her sweet dogs and they made our stay feel even more personal!

    Breakfast was lovely and set up for us at her table looking out into the garden. The property has many spots for a quiet cup of coffee or to just sit and relax with a book.

    I felt like we were far from the city even though the city is so conveniently close by.

    This was our first Airbnb experience and we are hooked!

    Thanks Jessica,(Sky and Indy,too) for a wonderful weekend!

    You are a great hostess!
    Dan and Linda

  • We had such a wonderful time staying with Jessica. Her home is gorgeous! The layout gives you privacy in your own wing of the house. The bedroom was cozy, and there was ample room for a couple to move about comfortably. We were happy to take advantage of the huge jacuzzi tub! It was great to come home after busy days walking around to relax in it.

    There are little touches throughout the home that are sweet, like the dvd collection complete with popcorn and a big bowl for movie night. The yard is huge! You can wander around the different paths without knowing you're by someone's home. So serene!

    Breakfast is wonderful. She presents you with a list of options, everything from fresh fruit to sausages to goat cheese, if you'd like. You pick. The following morning the full spread is laid out. You just help yourself.

    Location, location, location! We were so happy that her area was so centrally located. We could reach any part of San Diego with such ease. There are so many great restaurants nearby as well. Such a nice, safe place to stay.

    Jessica herself was so sweet and welcoming. We felt like family. Loved her dogs as well! It was such a fun, eclectic, warm home. Next time we're in the area we know where we'll be staying!

  • My wife and I loved our stay at Jessica's Lush Hideaway. Our room was cozy and private. I would recommend this place for anyone looking for somewhere nice and quiet. Jessica went out of her way to make us feel welcomed and at home. I'll definitely be back next time I need to stay in the area.

I am an artist, and former educator. The visual and performing arts are a main interest of mine, and I am an avid film enthusiast. My Collie, Indy, is a very well trained and delightful boy to live with. Skylar is a bundle of energy and seems to delight everyone who meets her. I will help you navigate the city, and chat, but also know its important for us to respect each other's privacy as well. I am not fluent in Spanish, but can speak enough to communicate. This is a delightful refuge, but close to all the action. As your host, my only aim is to make your stay a special one. It REALLY is a "Lush Hideaway..." My life motto is: "It never hurts to ask. The worst that can happen is you get "no" for an answer".
