I live in a 1326 square foot double wide mobile home. This is my home, and I live in the master bedroom. I have a male renter in the other bedroom. This is a 2 bedroom 2 bath home.

Mark is a very nice person, he is very consideration and provide privacy to the guest, he responded very quick and provided a lot of information and help. Thank you Mark
Mark has a very nice home near major attractions. Staying at his home was a good experience. He was kind and had good suggestions. We enjoyed his hospitality.
Me and my girlfriend stayed at Mark's for 3 nights and honestly would have stayed a lot longer if possible. Mark is just a wonderful host, being able to make you feel comfortable immediately when you arrive. Mark even took us hiking and made us some delicious breakfast.
Even though the bed is located at the living room, he provided us a lot of privacy. The house is clean and welcoming, and is located within 15 min drive from everything you might want to see in San Diego. I would say that this is provably the best place to stay in San Diego.
Stayed for a little under a week. Easy to find and easy access. Having breakfast there was awesome.
Mark 是个非常友善，风趣的老人，第一次见面也不觉得陌生！家门口有个欢迎“娇皎一家”的牌子，让人感到特别亲切！家里非常干净，温馨，设施齐全，便捷！主人还为我们提供了丰富的早餐和水果，我们也可以自己做饭吃！整个社区都很安静，安全，而且开车到每个景点都很方便！如果有机会再来圣地亚哥，Mark 家一定是我们的首选！我要把这里推荐给我的朋友们！
An excellent experience. I had all the help I needed, my questions were promptly answered and everything necessary was explained. Very friendly, the bed is comfortable, the location is peaceful. Definitely recommended for anyone. (Hint: If you are staying here for (email hidden) Convention Center, be aware that you may use about an hour and a half of your day to reach there by bus/trolley)

About the Host, Mark
I am easy going and fun loving divorced father and grandfather. I grew up in Montana and have lived in Southern California for 43 years. I have also lived in Utah, France & Switzerland. I am a retired school teacher. I teach piano & vocal lessons in my home. I speak French fluently. I enjoy traveling, camping, hiking, gardening, swimming, going to the gym, going to the beach, going to Sea World (season pass holder), ballroom dancing and musical theater. I sing in 3+ choral groups. I am a San Diego State University football & basketball supporter (season ticket holder.) I am involved in my church where I play the piano & pipe organ & sing in the choir. I enjoy reading-especially in my backyard or at the beach. All 6 of my children live on their own, and I have 13 grandchildren under the age of 14. I am friendly & outgoing, but also enjoy quiet time. My home is truly a peaceful sanctuary from the world, and I know you will feel comfortable & relaxed during your stay with me. Sorry, but I can't accept any "guest pets"
