NEW: I uploaded a YouTube video walk-through of my house. Unfortunately, airbnb won't let me put the link to YouTube here, so if you go to YouTube on your own, and copy/paste this to the very end of the URL, you'll be able to see my video: /watch?v=NO82npOS9SA
Check it out!
Check In: You can check in anytime during the afternoon, but I do work during the day and usually have people leaving the same day you arrive. So during the week I typically will get home at 6pm to put on fresh linens and change the towels in the bathroom. Just be aware that if you arrive before 6pm during the weekday then the bedroom and bathroom won't have fresh linens/towels yet.
Check Out: Most people leave by noon on their departure date. If you wish to stay longer let me know so I can check with the next guests to see what time they plan on arriving at.
Note: My location is not ideal for the bus line. If you wish to use a bus while you are visiting San Diego, I recommend looking for another place to rent from.
I have my own bedroom, office and bath on second floor and am at work or in my home office most of the time so you have pretty much the run of the rest of the house with all the privacy you want. Also, I am very happy to offer advice when needed on where to go and what to see in San Diego to make your stay a vacation you'll love to remember. Book soon. I look forward to meeting you!
This is a no smoking house.
I installed an electronic keypad on the front door. Before your arrival I will email you the four digit code (usually the last four digits of your phone number). You can use your code to get in the house whenever you like and not worry about using a key.
Brian made my kids and I feel at home. My kid's felt a bit awkward when I first told me them Brian lives on second floor but they quickly got over their shyness and made themselves at home. This place is perfect! The kitchen is huge and it has everything. We saved lots of money by using his refrigerator and cooking. Our stay here was 5 nights and my kids and I had a hard time leaving. Beautiful big home, super safe and easy access to everything! Thank you Brian for making our vacation one of the best!
You! Go ahead and book! ;-) Brian is a great guy, replied extremely fast and everything was just super uncomplicated. The house is and the area are classy, the jacuzzi is great, the pool table also, the flatscreen is i guess 60" and a eine selection of movies is also availlable. You can reach la jolla and Mission bay and within minutes. Really no obstacles! Thanks again for having us Brian, if we get the chance to visit San Diego again we'll come back. :-)
Really awesome stay. I hope Brian continues to offer this place to other travelers! He is super laid back, and even though we didn't see him personally, was very communicative on phone. The place was very comfy, clean, and would definetly come again. Love that jacuzzi!
I throughly enjoyed the stay for my friends and me. We were really able to make ourselves at "home" and relax during our stay. Great place! I would stay again if the time came around.
I definitely recommend staying at Brian's place. The neighborhood is very safe and quiet. His place has a quick access (2 min) to highway 805 which allows quick commuting wherever you need to go to. The Jacuzzi heats up quickly and I used it a couple of times during my 8 days stay. The pool table is also very nice. As mentioned, you get a full floor with living room, bathroom and bedroom. I used the fireplace every night to warm up the living room (very efficient!!) while keeping my bedroom cool for sound nights. Brian is very friendly and easy going.
This was my very 1st time using AirBnB and I was a little apprehensive on how it worked as I was renting a room in another person's house, traveling as a female, but I read all of Brian's reviews and felt very comfortable choosing his home when visiting San Diego.
I'M SO GLAD I DID! It was perfect. Brian was so accommodating and wonderful to work with. He immediately put me at ease.
Everything I needed was waiting for me, down to the special touch of a fresh rose in the restroom each day. The apartment floor was separate and secure, which made me feel very safe. Brian has it down to a science, so you don't even see him much, but when you do, he is upbeat, cheerful and ready to answer any questions.
The apartment itself was larger than any hotel suite I have ever seen. You have full use of an entire floor. Your own bedroom, a newly renovated private bathroom, your own large den and pool room. All the technology you want with large HD TV's in each room, your own wonderful fireplace and warm, inviting decor. Everything was really, really nice. On the main floor of the house is the large, gourmet kitchen. Everything I needed was there, from filtered water, coffee maker to even a VitaMix.
Head outside and you have a gorgeous Jacuzzi and deck. I loved that his house was conveniently located centrally within San Diego, so I was down at the beach in 15 minutes.
I will definitely be returning to Brian's next time I am in San Diego! This experience sold me on AirBnB, but something tells me I was spoiled with my first experience and Brian's home is "a find", which I highly recommend to anyone traveling to San Diego.
Brian's place is comfortable, clean and in a perfect location if you are going to be going to various spots around San Diego. The airbnb "suite" has a newly renovated bathroom and bedroom with a super comfy bed, tv, and lots of closet space. I was so happy to find an iron and hair dryer, since I had forgotten the latter. Parking is super easy, and the neighborhood is nice and quiet. Brian also uses a key code door entry, making it really easy to come and go.
Brian's place is in a more suburban, less walkable part of the city, but it's a quick drive to the pharmacy, grocery store, a few restaurants and coffee shops. I stocked up on some breakfast food and snacks, and that worked out really well.
All in all, it was a great space to stay for the few days I was in town for a workshop at UCSD.
We stayed 2 nights at Brian's place. We had a welcome package informations and guide books on arrival, so very nice !
We've seen Brian only few minutes but he seems very kind and in all cases he was very helpfull by messages. The bed is comfortable and the neighborhood very quiet. It was amazing to have the private downstairs level for us with the fridge, the tv, the pool table and the jacuzzi.
What a great space! Brian was a very pleasant host and it is clear he has put time and effort into making the space comfortable for AirBnb guests. The location is great as long as you have access to a car (everything in San Diego is within 15 minutes from Brian's place via driving).
Brian's place was amazing, very cozy and relaxing. Everything offered is really there, and you can do much things here the whole day that you don't have to spend time outside. Overall, very clean and the neighborhood is very quiet. Brian was really nice and was a great host, he helped me and my girlfriend a lot by giving us tour of the house. We will make sure to come back to his place again if we were to visit San Diego again. Oh, and just to the people that might not know, the street parking spot in front of his house is kinda uphill, you have to make sure you have your wheels cramped or you will get a parking ticket.
