Interaction with Guests
We are friendly and enjoy meeting new people but we have lives too!! Keith and I are on the go all the time so we will make you very welcome and we hope you will make yourselves at home.
Our neighborhood is beautiful, quiet and convenient for shopping, great restaurants, a cinema and a business center. Anything you need is a 5 minute drive from my house.
We live in an area that has excellent cycling which is our first love. If you bring bikes, we are 4.5 miles to Torrey Pines State Beach. From our house there are beautiful routes in all directions, whether you want to stay along the beautiful and fairly flat coastal areas, or head to the hills. I’m sorry but we don’t provide loaner bikes.
We live near the Coaster station for quick trips as far north as Oceanside or south to downtown San Diego. We are also a short bike ride to the AMTRAK station. You will need a car, however, to enjoy all that San Diego offers. We are approximately 20 miles from San Diego airport.
Other Things to Note
We love to travel and host other travellers. We have stayed in many bed and breakfasts and know the little niceties that a host can provide. We'd love to offer you a relaxing stay in our home. When our guests read the paper, use the computer or linger over their coffee in the morning, we feel we've done our job well. One special note about breakfast: I had a guest awhile ago say to me "You know Your bed and breakfast?...it's more about the bed." So there's my full disclosure! I'm not a breakfast chef but will put out an assortment of bread, jam, yogurt, bananas, maybe hard boiled eggs, but I always provide good strong coffee!
No smoking indoors.
We try to keep a fragrance free home due to allergies. Please no strong perfumes.
Full kitchen use, including condiments, spices, etc. Please clean your own dishes.
Use of washing machine, dryer is ok after I show you how.
Enjoy the patio and BBQ.
We felt so welcome from the moment we contacted Julie and Keith. We cannot wait to return to San Diego . We plan to stay at their place if it is convenient for them! The house was beautiful and very comfortable , just as it looked on line!
Thoroughly enjoyed the quiet and convenient location and how clean your home is kept. We will continue to use your home as our convenient home away form home when we visit our family in San Diego.
Once again, Julie and Keith were great hosts. They suggested many places we could take our grandchildren. They are always very welcoming. Thanks for the great visit.
Julie and Keith were wonderful hosts with beautiful and clean accommodations. They opened their home to my husband and I as if we were family and We were encouraged to use the kitchen and living spaces as if it were our own. Morning greeted us with great coffee, yummy pastries and wonderful conversation. We highly recommend the Topliffe home as your base camp for exploring San Diego. Keith and Julie will do everything they can to make you feel welcome and comfortable in their home. If you are cyclists....these are definitely the hosts you need to meet. They are avid riders and can help you navigate the area by bicycle...they may even guide you if you're lucky!!! 5 out of 5 stars!
We can confidently say staying with Julie and Keith made our trip. They were excellent hosts, very friendly, and helpful to our daily requests for help with everything from restaurant recommendations to tourist tips. We stayed with them for over a week and felt like were staying with friends. Usually after being in a hotel for a few days I am itching to get back to my own space, but not here. We would happily stay there again!
Keith and Julie were exceedingly gracious hosts who made sure our stay in Del Mar was pleasurable. They simultaneously made us feel welcome at all times while allowing us as much privacy as we would have in our own place. We enjoyed the fresh fruit in the mornings and appreciated the convenient location. I would certainly recommend their place to anybody staying in the Del Mar/ San Diego area.
What a wonderful stay we had!!!! It felt like I was reunited with my long lost friends. Julie and Keith were the most amazing hosts!!!! Such down to earth folks with a heart of gold!!!
The home was extreamly clean and very well kept! Just the way I like it!!!
I would recommend this location to any of my friends and family!!!
Aloha and Mahalo!

Keith, and I spend our free time cycling, travelling, and enjoying our family. We love adventure travel and are always up for new experiences. That's why we are offering our home to fellow travellers. We think it will be great to host people from all walks of life and get to know them. We have stayed in B&B's around the world and know the little niceties that a good host can provide. We would like to offer you a comfortable and casual stay in our home.
