The Space

*** This place is not longer available - check my other listing for an alternative room ***

This is the guest room in my apartment. It's the perfect place to be in when in San Diego for a visit or for work (no car required). In the heart of Little Italy, it is 1 min walk from all the wine bars and restaurants, and close to train station and Convention Center.

The room has its own private bathroom. Linen, towels and shampoo are be provided. High-speed WIFI available. It is a queen sized bed.

There is a very nice open door pool in the building, and a BBQ grill.

The place is conveniently located 2 min walk from the Santa Fe train station (Amtrak/Coaster and Trolley) for commuting using the train to work (I personally work in Sorrento Valley and commute with the train every day) or using the trolley to explore the city:
- Coronado Ferry is next door. Perfect for Coronado beach visits or restaurants.
- Convention Center, Seaport Village, Petco Park are all 15 min walking distance or 2 min with the Trolley
- Pacific Beach, La Jolla, UCSD, UTC are easily accessible with Trolley and Buses
- Fashion Valley, SDSU, etc are all a few stops away with the Trolley.
- Del Mar, Encinitas, Oceanside, Carlsbad and all beaches are easily accessible with the train.

Very close to airport ($8 taxi ride).

There is on-street parking which is free 6pm-8am and all day on Sunday. Otherwise, there is a $15/day parking lot next door with is multiple in multiple out allowed.

Strictly no smoking and no pets!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Sami's apartment was very nice, we would definitely come back. We loved the view of the water from the balcony and the restaurant across the street was amazing, Queenstown public house definitely worth checking out! The area was surprisingly quiet and we slept like babies after a long day of walking around the city and seeing the sight. Little Italy is the perfect spot.We saw most of the city by walking but Sami was nice enough to let us borrow his card for the trolley. He left us lots of toiletries and towels, we loved having our own bathroom and bedroom, the bed was comfy too.

  • Definitely an awesome place to (email hidden)! - Stayed here for a week in mid March. The location has moved slightly but it's even better - it's literally on the doorsteps of Little Italy. The apartment is nice and bright, clean, spacious and is located in a nice secure block. It's surrounded by loads of cafes and restaurants and is a nice stroll to down town and up to Balbao. Location is perfect!

    Sam is a great host, extremely friendly, helpful and fun to hang out with. Got to check out some neat local spots!

  • I had a great stay with Sam. Place was clean and tidy. Check in and out times are super flexible. The location is awesome, being away from all the noise but yet close to everything. Within the beautiful little italy with great restaurants and few minutes from the airport. Sam is a great host who would easily be a friend to you. Will definitely stay there again...

  • San was great. Made it easy to check in. He is a hospitable guy and we had some nice conversations. The first night I was parked on the street and he checked the street cleaning schedule and told me to move to the other side of the street. Saved me a ticket.
    Dumb luck moment; His place was two blocks from one of my conference events.

  • Sam was awesome. His place was just like the pictures described. He offered food when I arrived and late check-out if I needed it. When I come back to San Diego, I know where I'll be staying.

  • Thanks to Sam for a great stay. Great location for visits to Balboa Park, the Maritime Museum, Downtown, Little Italy. Lots of flexibility for check-in time which was greatly appreciated :)

  • Sam's place is excellent. The room is a comfortable size with a very comfy bed. The bathroom was private and a nice size. The apartment has a wonderful balcony that Sam has a nice couch on. The apartment was clean and comfortable. It's 3 blocks to the trolley that takes takes you wherever you want to go. Sam even provided the compass pass so all we had to do is purchase the day ride. He's about a block away from the heart of Li-Italy and made some great suggestions for food. He also told us about the Lyft application on our phone so we didn't have the expense of a taxi.
    This was my daughter,Hannah, and my first experience with airbnb, and Sam made it an easy experience with his prompt replies and his knowledge of the area. On a scale of 1-10, Sam and his place get an 11. Thank you Sam and I'll see you next time we come to San Diego.

  • Good: Very nice, clean, quiet apartment with great views, small deck, comfortable bed, lots of light. Sam made it easy to connect with him.
    Bad: it's not really in Little Italy, more like 5 blocks away. Otherwise the location is great (convenient to airport and downtown) but shouldn't be advertised as being in Little Italy. Parking is a problem: street only and metered from 8 am to 6 pm.
