Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Nothing to say about this place that hasn't already been said. Great place, amazing backyard, friendly host. What more cam you ask for? Would definitely stay again.

  • I rented out this weekend here last week and I would do it again! Michael was a perfect host! My girlfriend and I felt like this was the best place to choose from out out of the other selections. From the private room to outside's beautiful 1/2 acre lot. I recommend this to a family looking to enjoy there stay in SD or a group of friends looking to have fun time and relax. You won't regret staying here.

  • We absolutely loved our stay at Michael's apartment. We have young children (3 & 5) and the aviaries, bunny rabbits, fish, and emu were a big hit with them. The setting is very private, yet starbucks, cvs, and multiple local restaurants are right around the corner. I especially enjoyed the outdoor, open ceiling shower. Michael was a great host, responding to any questions I had very quickly. I will definitely recommend this treasure to friends and family.

  • The stay was really amazing, with a great host! None of the previous comments is misleading, great place to relax and a short drive to San Diego.

    March 2014
  • Michael was an amazing host with a wonderful place. We had everything we needed, and if there were any questions, Michael was able to answer them.

    Definitely the best reservation I've booked on airbnb yet!

    March 2014
  • Michael was a great host! He was there when you needed him and vice versa. The apts are beautiful. We rented them both. One for the teenaged kids and one for us. The animals were fantastic to watch. The hot tubs were grand. We loved the privacy and beauty of the whole property. The apts were nicely done inside and out. Highly recommend this rental. We hope to be back for another visit.

  • Had a great time staying at Michael's apartment in Chula Vista. Great location, nice area for running and close to several beaches.

    February 2014
  • Very nice place. My daughter loved the animals!

    February 2014
  • I stayed in this apartment for two weeks during January 2014. The apartment is clean and comfortable. It is well furnished and clean. Plenty of extra blankets and pillows. The owner provides fresh bottled water for your stay and soda in the fridge for your arrival. The kitchen is well stocked with items that may be needed for cooking. Also, the shower in this apartment is beautiful and you could stay in there forever! There are two big flat screens and TIVO. The apartment is very secluded, but feels safe....almost like a rain forest. As you leave the front balcony you can see the beautiful aviary with birds and rabbits. A walk down the path finds a beautify Koi pond and emus! (behind a fence). One caution for this apartment... If you have trouble navigating hills, the drive way is a very steep downhill, which you must travel to enter the apartment. Michael was very helpful and gave me assistance with my luggage both upon arrival and leaving. Michael was a great host. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

    February 2014
  • We were in SanDiego to see friends and are glad we found Michael's place for two nights during our California trip. His place was clean, modern and comfy. There were two flat screen tv's, a small kitchen and living room.

    I'd definitely stay again.

I am retired and enjoying my retirement. I like to do home improvement projects around my house. All of the artistic tile in the apartment was my doing. I am single, living alone. I am very quiet, you won't even know there is someone else in the house. I hope that hosting thru Airbnb will be a way to meet interesting people and make a little extra income. Enjoy your stay!
