Hemmingway's Haven in Sunny SD

Apartment - Entire home/apt · 37th St, San Diego, CA 92105, United States

The Space

2 bedrooms and 2 baths in Central San Diego!

Our 2BR 2BA condo located is located in central sunny San Diego. There are 2 bedrooms with queen memory foam mattresses, 2 full bathrooms, full access to the kitchen, and 1 parking spot.

Both bedrooms have queen beds with memory foam mattresses.

Our kitchen is fully equipped with an oven, 4-burner stove, fridge, water purifier, coffee grinder (fresh coffee is the best!), coffee maker and microwave. You are welcome to use any of the appliances.

A middle eastern grocery store is 2 blocks away and sell amazing produce, the best hummus, and a HUGE variety of cheeses.

We have wifi, netflix, and a wii that you are welcome to use while you are here. We also have a washer and dryer that you can use.

The sofa is made out of down feathers, and is soooo comfortable. It can sleep two comfortably. Or if you prefer, we also have a queen blow up mattress.

We have a Bengal cat who lives with us, but is gone from the condo as we take him with us when we rent out the condo.

We have a bearded dragon named Steve (named after Steve Irwin) who likes to watch you and make faces at you through his tank. :) He is harmless, loves worms and carrots. :) If you chose to stay at our place, we would ask you to feed Steve every other day or so with salad mix (that we will provide of course)

You are also welcome to use our beach chairs, beach umbrella and little cooler if you would like to hit up the beach while you are in San Diego. :) Just make sure you return them in good condition and ask us in advance where they are.

We will provide toiletries, fresh towels (even beach towels!), and snacks.

We are 3.5 miles away from the zoo and Balboa Park, a 10 minute walk to nearby cafes and restaurants in Kensington, and a short 15 minute drive to Ocean Beach. If you would like to drive to downtown, it is only 5 miles away. :)

  • We had a lovely stay at Ben & Anna's. The condo is in a great location - and close to many restaurants! Next time we're in San Diego, we'll be back.

  • The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.

  • Ben and Anna's place is great! The condo is located a few blocks off the I-15, close enough for easy highway access but far enough that highway noise is minimal at most. Really, it's a pretty quiet neighborhood.

    There are ample restaurants in the area as well as nearby grocery stores for stocking the pantry. Try the San Diego Chicken Pie Shop on El Cajon Blvd. for great take-home!

    The alley is narrow and parking is close, a full-sized car is a squeeze. Count five from the left (to right) and you’ll find the spot, which is unmarked. Backing in seems to work best.

    The condo is nicely decorated, comfortable and you’ve got all the amenities of home! As first-time airbnb users, we thought it might feel “odd” to simply move into someone home but Ben & Anna make guests feel comfortable right from the start and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    We highly recommend Hemmingway’s Haven and would certainly stay again!

  • Ben & Anna were great hosts! Their home is very comfortable and cozy. The beds were particularly comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and made it a delight to cook. The only thing missing was cable TV.

    We enjoyed talking to Steve, the bearded dragon even though he didn't say much.

  • This is a beautiful apartment, and Ben and Anna are easy to communicate with. They left snacks and wine for us, and the place was very clean. We had a wonderful stay, and would choose this place again.
    Thank you so much Anna and Ben!!

  • Anna and Ben are fantastic hosts! Their place is fabulous with great facilities and they even left us some welcome snacks and a bottle of wine! We unfortunately didn't get to meet them personally but Anna was always very quick to respond to the many questions we had by email. We had a great time, guys - thanks so much for everything!

  • Located 10-15 minutes from downtown, Ben and Anna's place proved an easy commute and easy-to-reach port of departure to explore San Diego. Their apartment was warm and accommodating, with fun decor and good ammenities. Their kitchen was great. And both bedrooms and baths were well-equipped and met all our expectations and needs. Private parking around back was a great perk. And lastly, Ben and Anna have compiled a detailed collection of restaurants and attractions, complete with maps and driving directions. We took their advice for dining and entertainment and were not disappointed.

    Small gestures, such as a welcome note and toiletries, provided the personal touch that made my and my friends' experience worthwhile. Ben and Anna went out of their way to accommodate us (a group of 6) and inquired throughout our stay to make sure everything was okay and meeting our needs.

    Thanks, Ben and Anna, for helping make our stay in San Diego a great experience!

  • Best hosts ever! Prompt and thoughtful communication! They've addressed every problem that i've experienced. Apartment was crystal clean, clean sheets, towels and etc. Ben and Anna provided refreshments upon arrival to improve our experience in San Diego. San Diego is remarkable city, but Ben and Anna made my experience in this city completely unforgettable!

  • Great place! very cozy and homely. Ben and Anna were extremely responsive before and during our stay. Their welcome package was a great bonus too!
