Welcome to San Diego!
Quiet guest room (full size bed) with desk and private bathroom across the hall, in 1950's home (duplex), close to everything San Diego has to offer with easy highway access. Our patio/secluded back yard area is the perfect place to dine al fresco for spring and summer (and sometimes winter!) We are on the edge of Pacific Beach or "PB" which has an expansive variety of niche shops, bars, eateries, and clothing stores.
The shared areas include the living room, private fenced backyard and kitchen area with small dining. There is a TV with cable and Blue Ray player in the living room. We have WIFI for your use; password will be supplied upon your arrival.
Interaction with Guests
We are two working professionals who are typically gone during the day Monday-Friday. We are pretty laid back and can be interactive, or give you your space. We are usually hanging out in the backyard on the weekends grilling or having a few beverages. You can get hold of us anytime if you have any questions.
Our home is very centrally located in San Diego. It is about a 15-minute taxi ride from the airport/downtown and is close to public bus routes. Unfortunately, the only available guest parking is street parking, but there is always something close to the house.
Pacific Beach is serviced by public transit routes 8, 9, 27, and 30. There is a stop for Route 30, 3 blocks (0.2 miles) from our home heading both towards the beach and also downtown San Diego. A one-way fare is $2.25 or a day pass is $5 which includes the trolleys. Bikes and surfboards are allowed on the bus.
Other Things to Note
We do have a friendly but sometimes shy, 45lb border collie/golden retriever mix named Dakota who roams the house freely while we are home and is left outside during the day.
Please contact us with any questions you have!
Enjoy your stay and have fun! Please respect our home.
We had such a great time at Rachels and Joes place! The Apartment is awesome and sitting in the backyard with these two was so much fun! Our room was cozy and our own bathroom great. Rachel and Joe always made sure that we had a great time and we can highly recommend those two! If we are coming back to San Diego we would love to stay with them again!
We really liked our stay in Rachel and Joe's apartment. They are very pleasant and hospitality. Their dog Dacota is very nice!
The apartment is very cosy with a good atmosphere.
Honestly we liked everything!
Our Stay in Rachel and Joes House was great! We enjoyed soo much!! Thank you for everything!
I stayed with Rachel and Joe for two nights before moving into my permanent place, and they were perfect hosts. They were very accommodating when I asked to drop my suitcases off early, invited me to have drinks and food with them that evening, and were very helpful with information on moving to San Diego in general, as they had done it themselves some months before. The room and house were lovely and as described, the kitchen had everything you could need, and they put a pot of coffee on every morning which was great to wake up. Great hosts and I highly recommend them
We had a fantastic time staying with Rachel and Joe in San Diego. We had plenty of privacy and access to all of the facilities in their home. Their house was lovely and within walking distance to Pacific Beach (bikes were also available for us to use if desired). They were very accommodating and friendly and were kind enough to give me a lift on a number of occasions. Dakota was also a delight to spend time with, greeting us whenever we were in the house. If visiting Pacific Beach again, we will definitely be staying with Rachel and Joe!
We had a great stay with Joe, Rachel and Dakota. Very hospitable, clean place with a convenient location. Nothing could have been improved!
We found our accommodations furnished well and with all of the supplies and appliances that anyone could need or want. Plenty of room to store our personal items for a four night stay, lots of receptacles for overnight charging, plenty of guides and other written materials to answer the frequently asked questions. Everything clean upon our arrival. The decor leaves one gazing and studying for long stretches, as would a good art gallery. It was quite clear that our hosts went the extra mile to make both our private accommodations and the rest of the home and grounds a welcoming space.
And Rachel and Joe were each very personable but unimposing. We both enjoyed their company, when it was possible.
Oh yes, not to forget Dakota. A bucket of loving friendliness, adrift in an ocean of shyness.

We moved to San Diego at the end of 2013, and are enjoying the all the area has to offer! Prior to our move here we spent our transition period from Denver to take a 3 month backpacking trip across western Europe using Airbnb along the way. We enjoyed the flexibility and ability to meet locals so much we decided to list our own place when we returned to the states. We are loving living in San Diego and would love to share our home with you!
On the weekends we can be found taking our dog Dakota to the beach, trying new restaurants in the area or just relaxing in the backyard with a glass of wine.
