About this listing
Starting on July 15th 2015, the City of San Diego decided that guests for AIRBNB would now have to pay the occupancy tax of 11.5%, which is the same amount the hotels charge. Before this date, that tax was paid by the host. I have instructed AIRBNB to not charge my guests as I will still be paying for it, they informed me that they can do that but for some reason it still shows. So if it shows you are being charged an occupancy tax when booking at my place, please know that I will reimburse you that amount as I do not want any of my guests to pay for it.
I repainted the room and bathroom, plus remodeled the bathroom with a new deeper 19" soaking tub, tile flooring, toilet and new vanity.
Bedcroom with queen size bed and adjacent full bathroom facilites in a 2 bedroom 2 full bathroom condo, within a mile walking distance to San Diego's Zoo and Balboa Park, both of which can be reached using the #7 bus which is located about 200 yards from the apartment/condo. The lively vibrant neighborhood of Hillcrest which boasts great restaurants and clubs is within 10 minutes walking distance of the property. The property is located a few blocks from buses that connect to downtown San Diego, Old Town, East County, Sea World, Ocean Beach, Mission Beach, Pacific Beach, La Jolla, and Mission Valley. It is also possible to ride the trolley to the Mexican border and visit the city of Tijuana. The property has free Wifi, TV, built in clothing shelving, clothes hanger rod and use of kitchen amenities. Weekly and montly discounts are available.
The neighborhood was decent and I felt safe, which was important since I was there alone. The other roommates that were there during my stay were friendly and curtious.
We enjoyed our short stay in San Diego. This place was nice, exactly as described and pictured. We only saw the host on arrival and he was friendly and accommodating. The Zoo is right around the corner and there are plenty of places to eat down the road. The listing stated there is free parking on the premises, however there is only parking on the street. I must note that the street parking gets very busy from 4pm-9am as residents of the street park there because they don't have driveways or garages, so we found it very difficult to find a close park some of the time and once parked about a 10 min walk away. One thing to note was the bathroom hadn't been cleaned since the people before us as there was a lot hair in the shower and on the floor. Other than that we had a pleasant stay!
Stayed at Johnathon's place for 11 days and it was just wonderful! They were so friendly and welcoming, giving lots of recommendations on where to go and what to visit in beautiful San Diego. The room and the house were very clean and everything you need you will find it prepared for you including all the essentials that you might need in a trip, and if not, they will do everything to provide it. For example I wanted an A/C in the room and Johnathon was so nice to bring it and install it for me in the room, thank you! Lovely people, lovely place. Thank you Johnathon and Patrick for your hospitality.
The room and flat are as pictured, and conformatable to stay in. I didn't get to meet the host but communication was prompt and there were no issues with arrival. The place is close to the zoo and there are few good bars relatively close by. Overall I enjoyed my stay.
Johnathon was very welcoming and accommodating even though I was delayed. The room is exactly as it is pictured, clean and well stocked with the essentials - towels, soaps, shampoo etc. The location is in a safe, quiet area and close to buses taking you downtown or to the old town. This apartment is really good value for money for the size, comfort, facilities and location.
Johnathon left nothing for us to worry about. He was very detailed in his directions to his suite and he was very prompt in answering questions.
The room we had was clean, comfortable, and fairly quiet. There is a remote control for the fan/light, which made it super convenient at night. In the living room was a huge TV with many channels that was enjoyable to eat take out in front of. Thanks Johnathon for a wonderful accomodation!
