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...
We stayed for 2 nights at Michaels Airbnb. We booked for 3 people, which seemed to be no problem, but when we arrived there was just one bed for two. Luckily another guest showed us where to find an additional matress. The room was sunny, tidy and nice, and we loved the balkony, it was beautiful! There is a big livingroom and kitchen guests could use, which was good too. The house is close to the airport, which is great for travelling, but not so good for people who are not so comfortable with airplanes or have a light sleep, as the planes fly really low above the house. All in all we had a good time in San Diego and at Michaels place. Thanks for that!
Michael was unfortunately out of town when I was there, but he has created a very welcoming space and attracted wonderful people - both other guests and the folks who help to take care of the place. The location is excellent and the house, gardens, and room are a good mix of fun-funky and exactly-what-you-need. I definitely felt at home and comfortable in the blue room.
The house is a great place to stay! The location is ideal for going out to eat and to walk around. Adam, who met us, wax friendly and helpful with recommendations and information about the house and neighborhood.
The room itself is nice - the blue room has a nice view and its own patio. The backyard would have been a great place to hang out, if it hadn't been raining.
Overall, a great place to stay for a few nights.
The Place was wonderful. If i go there again i would stay in this House!
So, my girlfriend and I spent a couple of days in the Blue Room, and I have to say, it was a wonderful experience. The room is quite spacious and has plenty of amenities, including an electric fireplace for colder nights and a television if you want to just kick back and relax for a bit. The half bath is also a nice touch as it offers a little more privacy if desired. However, the main bathroom is right next to the room so if you need to use it in the middle of the night, the convenience will definitely be appreciated.
The two things that you will never forget about this room are the bed and the view. I honestly cannot decide which one I liked more. The choice is difficult when it's between an amazing skyline view of downtown San Diego and a bed that will give you some of the best sleep of your life. Oh yeah. There is a delightful private balcony that opens up off the room so that you can admire that city view while enjoying the beautiful San Diego weather.
Our host Michael was such a friendly and helpful man. He made us feel incredibly welcome in his home right from the start. He also was quite knowledgeable about places to eat and things to do in the immediate area as well as greater San Diego. It was very easy to tell that Michael wants his guests to have a great time during their stay and will help make it so in any way he can.
The area where the house is located is not far from downtown San Diego. My girlfriend and I walked to dinner one night, and it was not far to go. If you do plan to bring a car, parking is not terrible. We were there on the weekend, and I never had to park more than a block away. Some searching may be required, but you should be able to find a space. One thing that has been noted in other reviews is the presence of the nearby airport. Planes fly directly overhead, and you will definitely hear them, at least at first. Both of us didn't notice the noise that much after a little bit of time. It is something to consider if you are extra sensitive to noise, but most people should acclimate fine.
All and all, I would have to say that my weekend trip to San Diego was fantastic, and this was in large part due to the lovely accommodations that Michael has poured his heart into creating and providing. My love and I will DEFINITELY look to stay here in the future. :)
Michael and his supporting crew were wonderful! Warm and welcoming, took me on a tour of the lovely and unusual property (lots of amenities!) and greeted me throughout my stay with evening cookies and morning coffee. The neighborhood is within a short walk of Little Italy and I was 'on foot' the entire time. The San Diego did not disappoint...sunny and into the low 70's everyday. Thanks for being a fabulous host, Michael!
We had such a lovely time at Michael's. Not only is he so hospitable, the place is phenomenal. There is so much love in all the details. It's one of my favorite airbnb experiences. Love the planes overhead and wasn't disturbed by them when the door was closed. Really good sound proofing. Try the little Mexican food place taco rey nearby. It'(website hidden) yum! Thanks Michael for all your hard work.

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
As I sage this wonderful space to keep energy fresh and inviting, I ask the Universe to bring the wonderful energy to my guest and protect my space from the Negative or hard to please people so as not to affect my other guest who are all about enjoying this wonderful space
