Good location, nice little terrasse, clean rooms. Everything in the house was convenient. Nothing to complain for -- except perhaps the noise from planes which fly very (very) close to the house.
I wish every airbnb location was a nice as Michael's place. We stayed in the loft room and it was perfect for us. The skylights made for great lighting during the mornings and some views of the city lights at night. The stairs to the lofts are narrow but easily accessible and a very unique space. The rest of the house is very clean and luxurious and the kitchen had everything we needed. There are notes around the various parts of the house about how to use things and who is going to be at home and how to contact them. The gardens and patios were amazing. Perfect place for a drink at night or a coffee in the morning. The airplane traffic was off putting at first but we started to enjoy it very quickly. Thank you so much for having such a great place and letting us stay with you. We will be back any time we come to San Diego.
The place was so amazing. The backyard was especially a wonderful spot to hang out. We stayed in the loft where it got a little toasty but there were several fans available to us. We met some really awesome people who were also staying there. Michael was extremely considerate and asked if there was anything to make our stay better. It was a great experience with a fantastic location close to anything you might need in sd. I would definitely stay here again!
The place was wonderful, and the host (Michael) and manager (Adam) were very helpful and easy to reach. The house itself was very interesting and each room indeed had its own theme. I had no complaints about my stay here (other than the rainy weather). Highly recommended
I loved staying here at this place. Michael has created a home away from home for travelers. I truly felt at home here. I am grateful that Michael offers a place to stay in San Diego on a budget income but in the same house he has additional rooms at different price points. I had just traveled in Europe and wanted to stop in to visit my daughter in San Diego for 4 days, before returning back to east coast. The room I rented was a former attic. It has a comfortable bed. This room is an ideal place for someone to stay who is on a budget(which seems impossible to find in San Diego). There is a narrow flight of steps to go up in order to get to this room so keep that in mind, if you rent this room, and you can hear planes going over during the day but the rest of the house I did not hear the planes, it's only because it is an attic room. I spent quality time inside, downstairs enjoying the sitting rooms, reading and doing work on my lap top. I slept extremely well through the night,actually I slept through the night not waking once, even though I am a light sleeper because they have really cut out red eye flights. There are also 9 other rooms available in this Victorian house available with beautiful views. So if you are traveling with others there are many options in his house. There is also a fabulous kitchen to use, which I did. Michael is an amazing person who is genuine and truly cares about the comfort of his guests. He has created beautiful gardens to enjoy. In addition what is great about the stay here is that I did not rent a car this time. I walked a few blocks and I was at Starbucks in Little Italy, a few more and I was downtown. I also walked a few blocks the other direction and I was in Balboa Park, which houses the zoo, museums, science center, etc. I loved being able to walk every where and return back to this home to take a break. Sometimes I would relax in one of the two living rooms or outside in one of his multi-tiered decks surrounded by garden landscaping or at the dinner table. I absolutely loved staying here and definitely plan on staying here again when I come to visit my daughter.
I've spent 6 beautiful days in Michael's loft and it was fantastic experience for me! Amazing view from the windows (especially by night!)). Michael was very helpful and friendly. All went really smooth. The house itself is unique for SD area as I understand. I even took my friends from Carlsbad to have a look. It's a quiet neighborhood and tasty (Little Italy is just next to this place). Interior is deeply thought in every detail. You can feel that for Michael it's more than just a house where he can host people from all around the world. It's definitely his beloved child! Thai aura was mixed with Victorian spirit and the result you can see. The little pond and chill out zone with greens are also perfect surroundings. So instead of typical american back-yard you have an entire small green world with Buddha statues all around. I definitely recommend this place to everyone if they want to have a truly unique experience in SD! Thank you, Michael!
As our first airbnb experience, Michael made us feel right at home! Michael was super friendly and offered great tips on places to see and eat, our room was fantastic including an outdoor shower with a city view! Great host, perfect location, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in San Diego and would stay here again.

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
