Very nice place. The house is very big, clean and organized. The room and bathroom are like in the pictures. We only met Wanping who is Karl's wife and she was very nice and so kind with us. Thank you very much!!
Communication with Karl was great. My friend and I got into San Diego and explored before going to his house in La Jolla. Check in time was I think 2 or 3 but Karl let us check in after we took a look around San Diego. Their house is beautiful and the room looks exactly as pictured! They were friendly but gave us space and they totally let us cook in their amazing kitchen! They were so organized, and wrote directions/reminders on post-it notes. It was a great experience. I would definitely like to stay at their place again if I needed to.
Photos were accurate. Bedroom and bathroom were both very clean. It was a comfortable, hassle-free stay with Karl.
Coordinating was really easy. I'd definitely recommend!
A very nicely equipped room and bathroom in a beautiful home made this a great visit to San Diego's North County. Karl and Wanping are very friendly and welcoming - it was fun to get to know them and discover all the places and things we have in common!
Karl and Wanping were wonderful hosts and their home was a great place to stay.
I stayed at Karl's place for 2 nights. First of all, its location is great. La jolla and Torrey pines park is very close to this house.
This place is very quiet and has good neighborhoods. The room I stayed has a big comfortable bed, a sofa and fast wifi!
I would like to stay again if I visit San Diego again!
A lovely place, with very nice hosts! The place was quiet and peaceful, and really appreciated Alex playing Pokemon with my daughter!
Karl and his wife are very lovely people and made me and my daughter feel most welcome. The room is large as is the separate bath and spotless as well. The house is in a quiet community. The kitchen is large and very modern. Their is a park nearby though you will need a car to get here and get around. Their is a Von's nearby for food, and you are 5 min drive from I5 N or S. The house is filled with great art and the entertainment options are amazing. Run, don't walk, to book this wonderful room!

About the Host, Karl
My wife and I are both scientists working in the Biotech/Pharmaceutical industry. We met at graduate school when we came to America as international students. We love travelling, meeting people and learning about new cultures. We enjoy cooking and baking. We have opened our home to many friends, vacationers, professors, post-docs, and students from around the world in the past before becoming airbnb hosts in July 2012. Our jobs brought us to several different parts of the country including central Illinois, the Florida panhandle, Boston, and the San Francisco Bay Area before settling down in San Diego. We love San Diego because of the year-round perfect weather, beautiful coast line and state parks, as well as the many attractions and sights. San Diego has so much to offer! We are looking forward to having you as a guest and making your stay in the San Diego area pleasant and enjoyable.
