I was met by Rupert, who is one of the longer term tenants. There are two men in the cottage and two others, as I understand it, in adjacent properties. The actual owner, Raul, was out of town. Rupert was friendly and helpful. Alex handles the online communications.
It's a lovely, tastefully decorated place, as depicted. The garden is a nice place to read or hang out, as is the living room or kitchen. Within three blocks, there are two inexpensive breakfast places (Panchito's and Lucky's) a grocery store, two drug stores, a library, etc. There's a farmer's market on Thursdays and many other restaurants and bars within walking distance. There's laundry and cooking utensils available.
I had no security concerns. It seemed like safe neighborhood and the housemates were fine. Also, I didn't use any mass-transit, so I can't comment on that.
Overall, very relaxing atmosphere and lovely place to stay.

I did not feel safe or comfortable here. There are no locks on the bedroom doors and I often returned to the house with doors to the outside wide open and no one around. I always took my belongings with me when I left. There are people living in the back I was never introduced to who walk by the window at odd hours and have access to the house. Given there are no locks I didn't feel comfortable with this.
The fire alarm battery was dying and I alerted the host and was told to take it down and hide it. It's still not fixed and I left the house early and cancelled the rest of my reservation.
Communication is horrible as the person whom you speak with on AirBnB for this listing does not live there and cannot fix anything. The apparent owner travels internationally, so good luck reaching him.
Raul was the perfect host. Very friendly. He has a beautiful home in this up and coming neighborhood. I highly recommend his place and will recommending it to all my friends when visiting San Diego. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to SD. Thank you Alex and Raul.
A very peaceful environment and beautiful home. Although I was touring throughout most of the day and didn't spend much time there other than sleeping, I enjoyed staying here.
