The space

This is a 60 year old beach house, it has a lot of charm, and a view of downtown and the bay (fireworks from SeaWorld in the summer). The house is on the hill and south facing so there is a little extra sun as compared to being right at the beach, where it could be overcast. This listing is for a large guest bedroom with a Queen sized bed. I stay in one room, and the other two rooms are available on AirBnB. The bathroom is shared between the three rooms and is rarely a problem, but not for everyone.

Guest access

The kitchen/fridge are available to you, but I do prefer if you don't prepare meat because I am vegetarian. I get a long fine with people who eat meat, I just don't like it being cooked in my house. You can bring in takeout or have some cold cuts. Eggs are ok if hard-boiled only.

Interaction with guests

I am really good at responding through SMS or the AirBnB system if you have any questions or need recommendations. I cannot guarantee I will be around or able to socialize when you are here but I do enjoy meeting new people when time permits!

The neighborhood

This is a very safe neighborhood. The house is on a block surrounded by navy housing with 24 hour security. There are no houses on the other side of the street. The house has a nice view of the bay, downtown, and the fireworks in the summer.

Getting around

There is always plenty of parking on the street in front of my house (which can be a hassle for a lot of other beach area homes). Uber and Lyft in San Diego are relatively cheap, and our public transport is notoriously bad.

Other things to note

I clean all bedding and towels within 24 hours of arrival. I charge a cleaning fee because of the 2-3 loads of laundry it takes to turnover the room.

Great host!!! Mellow, musically minded, accommodating, helpful with directions & sites to see, respectful of privacy. A nice area close to the beautiful seals and beach area of La Jolla. Parking available on the street. Cozy, beach like older home with light use of kitchen & back yard. Large, clean room (currently no desk but I improvised and was ok with it). A perfect place to chill out for a few days or more. I would not hesitate to stay here again!

Beautiful view, amazing location, and warm vibes. I would recommend staying with max if you are on a chill week with your significant other, or a girls trip. He is very hospitable, plays his guitar right before quiet hours. The beach is very close to his house, so ubering wouldn't cost much. My overall stay was amazing. A+
