The Space

The best of the city and the country rolled into one! 20 minutes to Downtown/ Gaslamp, North Park, South Park, Hillcrest, Balboa Park, or Mexico.

Though you are welcome to use the kitchen for simple cooking most guests eat in town before returning. We have a fridge/microwave to store any misc. food collected from town. You will be sharing the house with your hosts, and family and little dog Maddie. We have a wholesome family atmosphere. We will remain IN RESIDENCE throughout your stay.

This is a cottage feel hill top home with panoramic views of mountains. We offer you a clean, quiet, safe, cozy room with a bathroom shared with son. There is a washer and dryer on site should you need to use one.

Wi-Fi is available throughout the house and on the patios.

When you stay with us we will give you space and privacy, and we will offer extensive knowledge of local shopping, restaurants, beaches, backcountry activities (hiking, biking, camping, etc.) as well as all of the major So. Cal. attractions.

We are conveniently ONE MILE from a major freeway that connects to ALL parts of San Diego. 20 minutes to Downtown and Gaslamp, Airport, Balboa Park. 20-30 minutes to the beaches and most attractions.

There is a major indoor mall with movie theaters, food court and many stores a mile down the road with local farmers markets, a library, and a large park.

We are close to the YMCA and other gyms where you can take advantage of all classes, workout rooms and pool, for a day fee of only $10.

Your time at our cozy home is guaranteed to be a restful from arrival to departure. I look forward to meeting you. Please come and stay!

  • We stayed for 6 nights with Morganne and Charlie and had a great time. Their place is very quit, the garden is beautiful with a lot of flowers and Morganne and Charlie are extremely helpful to give advices about activities in San Diego, beautiful nature and good restaurants. And speaking with Charlie and Morganne about all kinds of subjects was very interesting.
    We really can recommend a visit to the cottage of Charlie and Morganne.

    Hi Geke and Nico,
    we are thankful the fires did not come near us. For a couple days the fires were all around the county and the suspect some one started them intentionally. Thank you for your concern. We are so glad you have a great trip to San Diego,
    Morganne & Charlie

  • We had a wonderful time staying at Charlie & Morganne's place. Here are some of the reasons: 1. They have a great view from their place that made the quiet mornings very relaxing. 2. Their place is clean, comfortable and very quiet at night. 3. They are easy going, hospitable and friendly. 4. They know San Diego very well and made recommendations to places we should try. We found their recommendations very accurate and useful. 5. They had everything we needed. We're very thankful for the use of their kitchen! 6. We used their San Diego area guidebooks to visit local attractions and had a great time at each place. In summary, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the memorable time spent with our hosts. We highly recommend staying here.

  • Wendy and I had a wonderful experience staying with Charlie and Morganne, who are such down-to-earth and generous folks. We felt very welcome in their home and that meant a lot to us. We always enjoyed great conversations over breakfast every morning. Breakfast at Charlie & Morganne's might need its own personal review section.

    The neighborhood is safe and very serene. The view from the mountains will make you want to get up early in the morning and you can also catch the sunset comfortably from the patio.

    Charlie and Morganne offered to drop us off at the trolley station every time we needed to go out. And most times even, we had similar outing plans so we were lucky to get dropped off either at, or very close to the exact location we were headed.

    Can't say thank you enough. Also, all 4 of us might have to take a trip to Kenya just because lol (inside joke)

  • For our first Airbnb experience, we could not have picked better hosts! Morganne and Charlie made us feel right at home. Definitely kindred spirits. The room was so cozy and the bed so comfortable -- we had everything we needed. It was refreshing to sleep with the windows open at night. And enjoying the scenic view at night from their patio was relaxing after a busy day. Their knowledge of San Diego was especially helpful; the location was great -- far out enough to retreat from the city, but close enough to enjoy its attractions We had some memorable interactions, yet, they afforded us our privacy. But it was like making new friends; Morganne even included us in her birthday party (with the most amazing carrot cake we've ever eaten!). Not to mention the delicious zucchini bread, made from her own garden, along with the breakfast coffee. If you're looking for a low-stress environment, definitely stay with Morganne and Charlie. I know we will!

  • Charlie and Morganne were amazing hosts! My boyfriend and I stayed for one night at their neatly decorated home and enjoyed it a lot. The room is very quiet, comgortable and clean. The mountain view was fantastic!
    The next day started with a delightful healthy breakfast (even home made zucchini bread and fresh watermelon grown in the yard!) and a very pleasant conversation with Charlie and Morganne. This is the perfect place to stay in this area and I would highly recommend it!

  • Located outside San Diego, the serenity of their home allows you to feel peace and tranquility. Charlie and Morganne are a lovely couple and they welcomed me into their home for my 2 night stay. The room is spacious, clean sheets and peaceful. I found their advise on what to do and where to go in the area very useful - thank you so much

    San Diego, downtown is approx 20/25 minutes and in a few days i went up and down the coast and visited the local attractions. If you have a chance go and send a few hours at the US Midway
