Respect is what we are founded on, our guest always enjoy the good energy -we would not be a good place for an uptight or complaining person. Quite time is after 10 and before 8. no smoking except on outside decks if other guest don't object, no cigars, pipes. We do not accomodate a party atmosphere, such as frats ect...
Michael's home was beautiful, and for our short time in San Diego, was an oasis for us. We stayed in the Blue Room, and that bed is so comfortable! We also really enjoyed the private patio. I wish I could live in this house. The neighborhood was great. We took lots of walks, so many wonderful restaurants and shops within walking distance. We were greeted by a very nice lady who gave us a tour of the house, and everything was simple and easy for us. One thing for guests who may have cars....it is very hard to find parking if you're coming back to the house late at night. It was nearly impossible to find a parking spot at 1:30am, and we had to park 6 blocks away. Other than that, I'd still stay here again any time I visit San Diego. We'll just use an Uber if we're out late.
The blue room was awesome! The porch has an amazing view of the downtown sky line. So fun sitting on the porch at night and in the morning with coffee. We met Michael as soon as we got there and he was very kind and helpful. He recommended Hash House A Go Go, which we highly recommend to everyone! We walked downtown to Little Italy for dinner and then walked all over downtown and to the gaslamp district. But we love walking. I would recommend this place to anyone. There were other guests but everyone was quite and kind.
We very much appreciated our stay at Michael's house. We stayed there for one night, and were greeted by Michael upon arrival. The house is a beautifully restored Victorian home, with many rooms, used as a sort of guest house. Our room, the blue room, was comfortable, spacious enough for two, with it's own toilet and private balcony. Michaelwas available on site throughout our stay, and he has a very open attitude regarding his guests; he allows them to keave their luggage at the house after check-out, if needed, and we were able to have a shower at the house after check-out also, before leaving for the airport.
One important thing to know : there are planes flying over the house every 5-10 minutes, because the airport is only a couple of miles away. Personnaly, we loved it! It was very impressive to see huge 747 fly past us, so close. And once inside the house, with the windows closed, we did not feel bothered by the noise. But if you are sensitive to loud noises, or dislike planes, this might not be the place for you. We did not mind it, and would happily return to Micheal's home.
I felt completely welcome at this beautiful getaway that is close to the heart of the city.
Michael is an amazing host that provided everything we could possibly need and welcomed us and friends as if we were family. This place is a true gem.
Very neat and cozy place with a warm touch, great host! Everything you need for a perfect stay is there. Good location in a safe neighborhood close to Little Italy and not too far from SD downtown and Gaslamp! Very close to the airport, which is convenient, but planes are quite loud! Michael provides everything needed to not be bothered by the noise (good window isolation, earplugs...). I had a great time!

About the Host, Michael
My joys in life is creating a wonderful drama free place for traveler to meet and enjoy the most comfortable resort like feels around, I have created the most wonderful gardens that surround this amazing 4 story victorian. I also love my little dog who helps me shop for all i buy A Vacation is not only where you go but how you stay, Put away the car and enjoy walking to it all we offer not only the ability to walk to The San Diego Bay within 5 minutes, but in the same time or less be in the Village of Little Italy, Balboa Park (Zoo) Downtown Gaslamp, but many other amazing things are available without stepping foot in your car or a taxi. For those attractions further out the main bus line is two blocks away and the main trolley is within 15 min walk
