A comfortable family home (great for small children) in the heart of a safe, urban, historic, walkable neighborhood that features some of San Diego's most well-reviewed restaurants plus coffee shops, a local organic market, children's park, ice cream shoppe, one room movie theater, craft pizza parlor and quaint little library. 10-15 minutes from the beach, zoo, Balboa Park and downtown.
Be sure to read description in this listing to help answer any questions & better introduce you to our space.
This listing is our actual home (where we live, eat, play, sleep) and is not a vacation rental, second house or undecorated, boring apartment. This home is full of life! Family photos, clothes in the closets, toys in our daughter's room, and as such we hope that you'll treat it with the utmost of care. We are delighted to host you and to share our beautiful city with you! And we hope that you enjoy it as much as we do!
We are ALWAYS just a phone call, text or email away from sharing locals-only tidbits, tips or suggestions, and please share anything that we can improve upon so that your stay is wonderful. Likewise, if you have any issues during your time here - such as a stain on the carpet, broken item, etc - please pass those along as soon as possible as well so we can sort everything out before our three kiddos are back home and playing again in that same space. When we travel for work or fun we make our home available on Airbnb, and we frequently use Airbnb to book our stays when gone. We love the concept of home sharing.
Our home is located in a wonderful family neighborhood close to parks and full of moms with baby joggers or neighbors walking their dogs, as such we request appropriate noise and sound levels. Please no smoking inside the house and if you do smoke on the back patio BE SURE to pick up.
Larger dinner parties and stays are subject to a larger deposit - no New Year's Eve party, sorry! Please contact us if you must bring fluffy along, we might be able to accommodate your pet :).
Please email us if you have any questions!

We are a family of five from sunny San Diego. My husband is in architecture (and owns two wood-fired vintage firetruck food trucks on the side), I am the director of marketing in the motion control industry and we have three young, sweet daughters.
We enjoy small towns and big cities, hiking, biking, art, farmer's markets and exploring with our family.
Our home is our haven and we are happy to host kind, responsible and respectful guests in our beautiful neighborhood while we are away traveling. We are flexible, easy to work with and excited to show off our grand city. We hope you enjoy!
