Craftsman in hip area near downtown

House - Entire home/apt · Hawthorn St, San Diego, CA 92104, United States

The Space

This three bedroom craftsman home in the charming downtown San Diego neighborhood of South Park has been completely renovated and features a private patio and shared yard, full use of the kitchen, and enough beds for 6 (in addition to a included, and really comfy, queen size air matress and couch space).

Though the home is walking distance to Balboa Park, and less than three miles from the San Diego Zoo & downtown San Diego, the neighborhood is very quiet and offers plenty to do. The home is also walking distance from the 30th street corridor, many restaurants, and some of the best beer bars in the country. My favorite place for a drink is Hamiltons Tavern (check out this NY Times travel article - (website hidden)), but if you just want a nice night in, feel free walk our growler down to the Stone company beer store. Travelers wishing to explore further are only 10 minutes from downtown or five minutes from Balboa park via a nearby bus stop, or several small rental cars from the company car2go.

At our pad, travelers also have access to our shared patio area with covered shade, fire pit, yard, kid's playhouse, free wireless internet, powerful Ipod compatible stereos (in both the master bedroom and the living room), our record collection and player, plenty of pots and pans to cook something tasty, ample closet space, free laundry (washer and dryer), and more!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • SUPER-great area - love that it's in walking distance to great coffee, the Stone Brewery store and the awesome Station, among other places. It's perfect. Super-cute and well located. They also have EXCELLENT tastes in music and books. We took advantage of the music, and though we left the books untouched we appreciated the collection.

  • Matthew's house is perfect, especially for a couple!! It's very nice and there is everything you could need for your stay. Its position is great: it's very close to some supermarkets and to the bus stop, from which you can reach directly Downtown SD, at night too. Matthew is very kind, he wrote us some e-mails for knowing how our stay was and for solving eventual problems. And Brooke (the neighbor) was also very nice, ready to help us for eveything. We really recommend this house for your stay!!

  • It was our first time to use airbnb; & we're glad we ended up in Matthew's really comfortable & cozy place. Although he's not able to respond to messages immediately, he was always nice & accommodating. We changed our booking twice (because we enjoyed San Diego very much); and no problem, he made arrangements as smooth as possible. The 2 things that we loved the best was the parking, & that his place was central to everything!! We also got to play a few of his cool records & do laundry.

  • Loved staying at Matt's charming quiet cottage! The place was clean and nicely decorated. It was perfect for my family. Matt and Brooke were very thoughtful in leaving a welcoming letter, bus routes and menus for local dining. In addition, there were some great restaurants we just walked to a few minutes away. Matt was very kind and accommodating and I would certainly recommend staying at his place. Hopefully, I will have a chance to stay there again when I am back in the area..

  • Matts place was a great place to stay in. Great parking and located in a nice area, being able to get around San Diego. I would recommend staying at his place if you're looking for a place to stay in San Diego

My wife and I are teachers in San Diego, California, and enjoy travelling on our summer vacations. We are always interested in meeting new people and getting to know new cultures. We are new to airbnb, but we have hosted many people from other countries before, and we have traveled rather extensively. If you are coming to San Diego when we are here then we would love to show you around. If we are coming to your town, then I hope you can o the same (if you are available!) We look forward to meeting you! Hablamos Espanol.
