Michael, although unavailable due to a medical emergency, had someone there to warmly welcome us to our stay. I'm very pleased with the room, which in our opinion looked a bit different from the pictures but just as good. The place's location couldn't be any better, situated very close to little Italy, Gaslamp, and San Diego Zoo (and everything else really). The amenities are a bonus (the outside garden is a great place to eat breakfast). This was one of my favourite BnBs.
My experience was very pleasant. The Loft room was perfect and just as described. I was on vacation and didn't have a chance to hang out in the common areas but the entire house was well kept. Even though Michael was put of town he still answered my concerns via text. I would stay there again... It was a good central location in San Diego!
From the moment I stepped through the door, I felt welcomed and ready to start my vacation at this beautiful home. Micheal's place was in a prime location right next to Little Italy and only minutes away to Hillcrest. The home is pleasantly decorated and spacious. I stayed in the loft which was an amazing space. The bed was comfortable and the space was cozy and quiet. It had a small flat screen television with remote, a fold-out desk in the corner to place my laptop, and a chair and side table to sit and place items. My personal request to have the loft windows covered was fulfilled. I was able to lock the room from both sides. The a/c cooling fan in the room was great and kept the room at a comfortable temperature. The house is located in a very nice neighborhood located just blocks away from Balboa Park. I enjoyed each of the main bathrooms, while on my stay, which gave a different feel and perspective to the home. The zen room had a nice vibe and was great to relax in. The kitchen had all the things one needs to create a beautiful meal and to store your food safely. As a chef, I loved exploring the cabinets and finding things myself, and was surprised by all the appliances featured in the home. The garden was a beautiful oasis of lush trees and plants. The cleaning lady/host Denise was a delight to meet and respectful! She was able to answer questions and anything I couldn't find in the home, she was able to get for me. I very much enjoyed the home and all the people I've met here. The house provided me a comfortable private experience to stay better than a hotel..a home away from home and the next I am in San Diego I will look into booking a Micheal's again. Next time I will look into one of the lower private villas. Ciao! :)
Michael was amazing! He was a great host. He answered all my questions, very accommodating and an overall great guy to get to know. The place was exactly like what he described and what the photos showed. The location was great. Literally two blocks away from a bus stop, walking distance to Little Italy. Also, great walking distance to Balboa Park. I definitely recommend Michael's place to stay. Thanks Michael! I had a great time. Hope to see you again.
We were greeted by Deborah (might have gotten this name wrong), but she was absolutely lovely and very enthusiastic about the property. She was also very willing to offer guidance to the surrounding area. The grounds were lush and beautiful. Had we stayed longer I would have loved to sit out by the fire put or have a drink rocking In the front porch rocking chairs. The steps to the loft were extremely narrow, as described in the posting. The room was very clean and comfortable. A word to the wise, this is an attic, not what I would consider a loft. They have a lot of fans and an air conditioner so temperature was not an issue. The shared areas were also clean, although we spent very little time there aside from sleeping and showering. I would love to go back and check out the tree house room!

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
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
Let me introduce my co worker my dog
My dog cinamon- is an artful dodger of the rules and loves to make guest believe she is starving and has no toys
