The Neighborhood

About the Neighborhood:

This cottage is located within walking distance (a couple of minutes walk) from fantastic dining and entertainment options. If you haven't eaten at Carnita's Snack Shack (best carnitas in San Diego), or The Mission (best breakfast/brunch in San Diego), they're only two blocks away! A few more minutes walk to hipster dining and nightlife spots in central North Park (Bar Pink, The Linkery, El Take it Easy, and many more).

If you're looking for a nice pool, the Lafayette Hotel is a few blocks away and has a great pool and patio bar. You can s(website hidden)ring the weekdays for free if you buy a drink at the bar, and the place has a big pool party on weekends with a $5 entry fee.

Getting around

For better or worse, San Diego is a driving city. Everyone drives and cars are pretty much the best way to get around. That being said, the house is very close (1 block) to the bus stop, which will take you up and down University Ave. or El Cajon.

The cottage is very close to the bus stop, which will take you up and down University Avenue - from Hillcrest to Downtown.

The beach is a quick 15 minutes drive away, as is Sea World, Coronado, and Balboa Park. The airport is an $18 taxi ride away.

The MTS is a great bus service that can take you downtown, or all over San Diego. We also have a great trolly system. Taxis and Lyft are also really good ways to commute in San Diego, especially if you go to bars. Rental cars and Car2go are great ways to get around as well.

Other Things to Note

A security deposit is generally not required but MAY be required, depending on circumstances (e.g. if there will be children staying, aged 18 and under).

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Excellent stay. Very much enjoyed the property.

    April 2014
  • 1 f a Kind! North Park did not disappoint. Clean, pleasant and exactly as it looks in the pictures.

    April 2014
  • Great stay! Highly recommended and super comfortable bed for a restful nights' sleep for your San Diego adventures... Aaron made the whole process fun and easy! Thanks Aaron!

    March 2014
  • It was a wonderful respite from a hotel. Comfortable, clean, felt like home. Close to everything. I would stay again.

    March 2014
  • We stayed in Aaron's Hillcrest Bungalow for six nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The property is exactly as listed and is perfectly located. Even though we had a car, we used public transit more than we drove. It was so convenient and inexpensive and saved the price of parking at every venue we visited. Back to the house....it was very comfortable, clean, and the bed was really wonderful. Can't say enough about this property. I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in San Diego.

    March 2014
  • This was probably my favorite air bnb to date!!! We had great communication from Aaron leading up to our visit, and originally was not expecting to see him at all, but he was in town doing some work on his other units, so we got to meet him and his mother, which was a treat! Wonderful guy, the place was beautiful, exactly as pictures, he even had a bottle of wine for us :) We loved Northpark, had easy access to everything we wanted and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Highly recommended!!!!!

  • I had a great experience staying at Aaron's house. The house is clean, well decorated and stocked with all of the basic amenities. It is within driving distance of everything and easy to park. Aaron is very professional - he gives clear details about the house and makes check-in and check-out incredibly easy. Would definitely stay here again!

    February 2014
  • Aaron was a great host and extremely responsive, but his locked key for pickup made the entire experience easy. The bungalow is adorable and exactly what we were looking for while we visited friends and family in San Diego. We walked into Hillcrest for breakfast one morning and it was less than 10 minutes.The bed is extremely comfortable and compared to some airbnb rentals I've had--extremely clean. I love when you can tell a cleaning service has actually come through. We would definitely stay here again!

    February 2014
  • We spent 6 nights at Aaron's place and it was a total pleasure.
    Clean and well appointed with original art and cool objects. We rented a car which made it much easier to get around the neighbourhood. There's an Albertson's a block away which made getting groceries really easy. Check out the craft beer bars on 30th St. San Diego takes its beer seriously.
    It's a lovely cottage,the Wi Fi worked great and the bed is comfortable. It's perfect for 2 people,

    February 2014
  • What a wonderful stay! This area of town is close to several attractions, yet secluded. Close to downtown North Park (10 min walk) close to Balboa Park, and Hillcrest. The home is beautifully decorated, and directions on check in/check out were very simple and clear. Such a comfortable stay! I would HIGHLY recommend this home for your stay in a very cute area of San Diego. :-)
