About this listing
This three bedroom craftsman home in the charming downtown San Diego neighborhood of South Park has been completely renovated and features a private porch and shared yard.
This three bedroom craftsman home in the hip walkable downtown San Diego neighborhood of South Park has been completely renovated and features a private patio, shared yard, full use of the kitchen, and enough beds for 4 (in addition to a included, and really comfy, queen size air mattress (2 more) and couch space an additional 1).
Though the home is walking distance to Balboa Park, and less than three miles from the San Diego Zoo & downtown San Diego, the neighborhood has plenty of free parking, is very quiet and offers plenty to do. The home is also walking distance from the 30th street corridor where guests will find popular restaurants, and some of the best beer bars in the country. My favorite place for a drink is Hamilton's Tavern (which is consistently rated one of the best beer bars in the nation. If you just want a nice night in, feel free take our growler to any of the nearby brewery tasting rooms (Thorn St. Brewery, Riptide, Fall, Modern Times, etc.) 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, yard, kid's playhouse, free wireless internet, our record collection and player, plenty of pots and pans to cook something tasty, closet space, free laundry (washer and dryer).
Guests will have private access to the full 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home, including kitchen and laundry facilities. Guests will also have access to a porch with rocking chairs in front of the home.
Guest will also have shared access to the backyard (with hammock, outdoor seating, and BBQ grill), but seeing as this is a multi-unit property they will share the space with 2 other long-term renters.
Interaction with Guests
I can recommend services and restaurants via phone or Airbnb app, but most of the time we let guests have the property to themselves.
Parking is free and plentiful.
On 30th and Grape there are bike share stations using the city's new Decobike system (take a bike from one station and return it to another one at your destination).
You are welcome to use spices and cooking supplies. Please leave food (dry and canned goods) as you found them.
Please be respectful of neighbors and keep the noise down after 10pm.
Pets are not allowed on the property. Sorry, but this is a courtesy to the tenants who share the property.
Please do not smoke on the patio or on in the home. If you must smoke, do so in the front yard.
The neighborhood is very cute! Super walkable to restaurants, bars, shops. DecoBike wasn't as reliable, but I would suggest renting a bike from a bike company if you don't have transportation. House is great, very relaxing. Matt is very responsive to questions or issues. Very helpful! Great stay! Thanks!
Matthew was super helpful and awesome. The place was amazing, best way to spend a couple days in San Diego.
Matthew was a very attentive host and quick to respond when we had any questions. The house was perfect for our party of six. It is a very well maintained and organized property. The beds are extremely comfy and the location is very convenient. Many of the main attractions were a short drive away. At first we were concerned about the lack of air conditioning in the house however, we discovered that given the beautiful weather and that fact that the home has ceiling fans and tower fans, lack of air conditioning was not an issue. The house is very family friendly and our grand kids really enjoyed reading the variety children's books. We would highly recommend this place to anyone and would not hesitate to book again.
Es la típica casa de San Diego,con todo lo necesario para una estadía confortable,una discografía en discos fantástica, lo malo la tercera habitación se tiene que inflar un colchón incómodo, por lo de más excelente
A comfortable stay in a great house in a super neighborhood. Set on a quiet street, but with cute shops and restaurants, plus a great brew pub in a five minute walking distance. Lots of attractions at a short drive. Everything you need to feel at home from a fully-equipped kitchen to a a sweet front porch complete with rocking chairs. Great with the toddlers, they loved the playroom and all the books, as well as the swing, hammock, and kid's house in the backyard. Matthew was very responsive and willing to help with anything we needed.
Great house, beautifully stylish furnishings and very accommodating. Totally recommended.
The house was absolutely amazing and Mat has been a perfect host. We stayed there for 3 nights, and enjoyed the house a lot: it was super clean, spacious, very tastefully decorated and it was easy to find everything we needed. For the few questions we had, Mat has been super responsive and provided all the information we needed in no time and clearly. One huge bonus is that the neighborhood is absolutely adorable - with tons of cafes and bars, and only 10 minutes walk from Balboa park! We highly recommend this house and had the best experience.

About the Host, Matthew
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!
