The house was wonderful. We were greeted by Heather, who offered us a tour of the house before turning our room. (We'd taken a self-guided tour upon arrival.) We stayed in the Green room, which is both spacious and inviting. The outdoor shower and sitting area overlooks the city and the water, which was a great way to start every morning. (Don't worry, there's a curtain. Also, you turn the shower on from hot to cold water, not the normal way from cold to hot, so turn it just a little bit and you're set.) The room stayed pretty cool during the day, but got a bit warm at night (thanks to an afternoon of sunlight), so be prepared to open the outside door for a little bit before bedtime if you like the room to be cooler.
We didn't spend much time in the common areas, but there are several places for people to gather and enjoy themselves. The bathrooms were very nice and thoroughly cleaned, which felt good since we were sharing the house with several people. Michael et. al also provide earplugs; a nice touch, since airplanes do fly directly over the house when coming in to land. They also provided snacks and pastries for the Comic-Con goers for breakfast, which was very kind.
The house is not too far from the Gaslamp, but because of the time-sensitive nature of the convention, we took Lyfts to and from the house. We never waited more than a couple minutes for a ride. Still, the house is one block over from a straight shot to downtown, so walking would not be a problem at all.
We would absolutely, without a doubt, stay here again. In a heartbeat.
The experience was very hospitable. The room had gorgeous views of the city and the bay. We experienced, at first, troubles with the hot water for the awesome outdoor shower. Heather sent this inquiry to Michael and he helped us right away- the warm showers on the deck were very nice! We enjoyed all of the shared areas, especially the back porch for breakfast and dinner meals. Our next place to stay had a late check-in and they were so kind as to let us stay in the main areas of the house with our luggage after check-out time. If you're a walker or bike rider, very easy access to Balboa Park, San Diego Zoo and San Diego Bay! We walked everywhere (no car needed) and simply had an Uber ride from the airport. I highly recommend Michael's beautiful home!
While I could ramble on and on about my stay, I'm going to keep it brief. What you need to know about Michaels property; PERFECT location, walk to the harbor, little Italy, Gaslamp ect. Extremely unique property, my room had a shower on the deck, so you could shower and view the city. Awesome. Clean, comfortable bed and pillows, perfect price point. I don't foresee myself staying anywhere else when visiting SD. Truly a see to believe. Perfect 10/10, wouldn't change a thing.
He was really cheerful and also his friends who live with him are nice. My friend and I went there early in the morning but they just let us drop our baggage and introduced the house friendly. I really like the facilities itself too!! I liked the kitchen, my room, and bathroom. Almost every room has own balcony so we had some wine there too. I had really nice experience in there with my special friend.
Michael's place was a great and interesting experience. Super cool guy :)!! This was our first time using AirBnB so we didn't know what to expect, but Michael pretty much has this hosting thing down to science. We arrived after Denise (one of his employees) left, so we self checked in, which was basically showing ourselves to our room (super easy to do and find). We stayed in the green room. The view from the balcony and the outdoor shower were awesome!! Our room was very clean and complete with a helpful tip sheet. The bathroom has a cabinet with an assortment of toiletries. Even though it was a shared bathroom, there were two more downstairs, so waiting was never an issue. The gardens were so pretty. I loved the koi pond in the front of the house. He has another room that was under construction called "the cabin", which looks like it will be a pretty sweet addition. The location was excellent. It's very close to downtown, which also means that it's close to the airport, so we did hear some air traffic. The only thing we can think of was that you have to be respectful of other guests as voices tended to carry a little bit and they can probably hear you ;). We had a great time visiting with Michael on our last night. Will definitely look him up the next time we are in San Diego!!
Michael made us feel right at home! He and his staff helped us check in with out any issues. He really knew how to make us feel comfortable. Loved the house, the room, the location! All great! 5 stars! Can not wait to come back and visit again.
Staying at Michael's place was great! Check in was simple. Although Michael wasn't there, a member of the staff was happy to show us around the premises and was completely accommodating, as we arrived early and she offered to clean our room next. The bed was comfy and the porch with excellent view of downtown and the bay was perfection. Would definitely book here again.

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
