About This Listing
Hola! Large, airy and bright bedroom in a three-bedroom condo modeled after a Mexican casa, named appropriately enough Casa Alegra. Very close to Ocean Beach, within 10 minutes of Gaslamp District, Old Town and the big malls. Big windows, luxurious double bed. Bicycles available, boogie board, beach towels and chairs!
About two miles from the beach and also a short drive from lots of other cool spots, including Ocean Beach, Sunset Cliffs, Pacific Beach, Hillcrest, Gaslamp. Lots of shopping in the area. Two awesome grocery stores, Starbucks and good restaurants within two blocks, A 24 Hour Fitness and other gyms in the Sports Arena shopping district, all within easy walking distance. Large backyard available for those that like to dabble in gardening.
Within one block from the local buses to take you to the Old Town Transit Center; and from there you can get anywhere in the City. Also can loan you a bike.
The condominium complex has two pools, as well as a Jacuzzi. There is plenty of parking on the street. Since it's a condo complex, there is occasionally some ambient noise from children and dogs.

No pets, please, but I have one dog (Cali) and a predominately outdoor cat (Emma) that you can love and hug.

Meg was really helpful and easy to communicate with throughout my stay. I would definitely recommend Meg home to anyone going to San Diego and looking for a nice quiet area.
Thank you Meg for your hospitality !
I couldn't have asked for a better host than Meg Newcomb! I was in a strange town, many miles from home and Meg helped me to find my way around. She provided me recommendations for travel and beauty needs. She was always happy to help me when I had needs or wants and went the extra mile to ensure my stay was comfortable and safe!
For this trip I was in San Diego on business. I've been in California before but it has been many of the areas north of L.A. through San Francisco.
What a great way to enjoy a new part of California! I was hoping to hang out with a local and get to know my way around San Diego. Meg was a very gracious host and didn't disappoint! Also everything was as advertised so there were no surprises.
I decided this trip would also be different when it came to getting a rental car. I wanted to only take public transportation. That was also very convenient as her house is very close to a bus stop and nearby is a large transportation hub for rail.
If the opportunity arises I hope to stay with Meg again!
We really enjoyed our stay in San Diego. Meg's place is exactly as described and the ensuite room is really spacious and private. It was the perfect place to come to after a long day out! Her pets are very cute and friendly and Meg is very knowledgeable about San Diego, so she was able to answer any question that we had. We really appreciated the tour of La Jolla and its surroundings, it was very kind of Meg to show it to us.
The location was perfect as we didn't have a car. It was close to the bus station and the bus took us straight to Ocean Beach or Old Town for other buses.
We really miss sunny San Diego and hope we'll come again soon.
We had a wunderful stay at Meg's place! Meg is a perfect host and we felt at home from the moment we arrived! She does everything to make you feel comfortable and she has great recommendations about San Diego and surroundings! We had lovely dinners together and bake the best American strawberrie pancakes for breakfast :)
There are also one sweet cat and Rika's new best friends, the two little dogs living in the house! It is a very nice place to relax and to discover San Diego! The place is really central, only a couple of minutes from the beach and downtown.
The house is very comfortable and nice decorated!
We can absolutely recommend a stay, and we would love to come back soon!!!
My experience staying with Meg was great. The house was beautiful and the room clean, cozy, and well-decorated. Meg was very friendly and well-knowledged about the San Diego area. The neighborhood is in a good, central location, within about 15 minutes or so to most of San Diego's popular spots. I would happily return!
