  • Merete is a lovely host with great attention to detail -- the Bluetooth speaker, the yoga mats, the tea, the books, the extra chairs, etc. The loft was spotlessly clean, very impressive! This is a one of kind of experience and I would definitely come again. The mattress is a dream and waking up to all the sunlight is really serene. Beautifully decorated and you can feel the good vibes from all around! My family of four stayed here and I think the loft is best suited for 1-3 people, but you could definitely make four people work too. Thanks Merete, my sister and I hope to visit in the future!

  • This spot was super cute and a short Uber ride to everywhere we wanted to go! I felt a little uneasy in the neighborhood, but for an affordable spot to sleep and jump around San Diego, this place is great!

    Ashley2017-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy cottage, cute loft bed. The neighborhood is a bit out of the way, and not very walkable, but everything is about a 10 min drive away. It was a bit difficult when coming back at night as there weren't many lights to lead the way to the backyard. Very cute kitties in the backyard!

    Pooja2017-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • The cutest loft in California. We loved everything about it and didn't want to leave. Perfect for two people, very spacious. Merete was a great host! She let us leave our luggages before the check-in time, was very helpful about everything. We enjoyed our stay a lot and recommend the loft to anyone visiting San Diego.

    EGE2017-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • Loved it! Stayed at Merete's place for two nights with a friend and we had a great time. The space is beautiful, unique, clean and comfortable. The neighborhood itself caught us off guard a bit, but we were a quick 5-10 drive from everything, and didn't have any problems with parking, which was nice. Would definitely stay here again.

    Ashlee2017-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • We loved Merete's place! She was so hospitable and responsive to our every need. The neighborhood is charming. There is a panadería at the end of the block and a taquería next door. It is a quiet neighborhood and within short driving distance to Gaslamp and Coronado. The loft itself is so cute, very clean, and well furnished. I would recommend this place to groups of 1-3. The fourth person is a tighter squeeze, but it is also doable.

    Kate2017-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Such a hidden gem, yet close to downtown. Humble backyard loft yet so roomy and homey feeling, I didn't want to leave. Merete was a great host and her cats are super laid back and friendly.

    Rechele2017-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at Merete's loft. It looks exactly as pictured. We only stayed one night, but it was comfortable. The only thing I would say, is that because we were just visiting San Diego, we were unfamiliar with the area. It is quite secluded from sight-seeing places you might want to see. You would definitely need to plan transportation. Otherwise, our stay was lovely. Thank you again, Merete!

    ABOUT THE MT HELIX NEIGHBORHOOD In 1872, after a scientist discovered a European snail (Helix aspersa) living on a small mountain, Rufus King Porter, the founder of what is now unincorporated Spring Valley, California, named the peak Mt. Helix. Then in 1885, the U.S. Postal Service rejected the use of two words for a post office name, so Rufus submitted just the name Helix and also became the first postmaster in Spring Valley; the Helix Post Office was operated out of his home. Around this same time, Hubert Howe Bancroft came to the area. He bought the Porters' ranch and also acquired neighboring properties, accumulating about 500 acres (2.0 km2). He began calling his property "Helix Farms." Bancroft hired workers to help develop Helix Farms, planting orchards and building structures for his ranch. By the early 1900s, Helix Farms was home to the largest olive ranch in southern California; some of the original olive trees can still be found today. Bancroft died in 1918, and eventually his family sold the property and it became the luxurious and prominent neighborhood it is today!
  • Excellent home. Greg is a fantastic host. I will absolutely be recommending this home/host to anyone looking to stay in the San Diego area.

    Robert2017-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • This place exceeds all expectations! It was my first airbnb experience and it was absolutely lovely, I hope to come back here with my husband and family some day. Here are some things I loved about it: 1) The views are gorgeous since it sits atop a hill 2) The property is incredibly spacious and the rooms are all styled differently so there is something for everyone to enjoy 3) The pool is so much better than the pictures and we especially loved the waterfall, slide, and floaties! (only con was that we couldn't get the hot tub to heat up, but the pool water was nice and warm) 4) There are so many beds and all of the bedrooms have a view 5) Bathrooms and showers are plentiful, as are the towels! When we ran out, we just stuck them in the washer in the laundry room, super easy and convenient. 6) They have plenty of ice to keep our drinks nice and chilled, we didn't need to buy any. 7) They have special makeup removing towels in the drawers - those little things are so nice! The shampoo, conditioner, and soap they provide is actually good stuff too, not nasty hotel quality. I really appreciated that! 8) They have a library upstairs with books for people of all ages and interests, I loved that they even had items for little kids. 9) They had so much closet space that made it very easy to store our clothing neatly. 10) They provide literally everything you need: soap, body lotion, towels, hair dryers, kitchen supplies, ziploc bags, tupperware, a complimentary bottle of bubbly, etc. (this list can go on and on)! It's so much better than staying in a hotel. Now the only con I experienced on this trip was that the owner and his team seemed to be at odds regarding our checkout time. Greg would say 11am no checkout fee and then his team would e-mail me saying 10am + $200 late checkout fee. It was very stress inducing not knowing what our actual checkout time was supposed to be and what fees would be tacked on. I think they've learned from it though and will improve their communication for the next guests - it's definitely not a big enough con to rate them any less than 5 stars :) Yes, it's about a 20 min drive or uber ride to downtown San Diego, but it's absolutely worth it! Great for family trips, bachelorettes, birthdays, or anything with a larger group of people.

  • What can I say...this property is fantastic! My friends and I stayed here for a long weekend guys trip and the house exceeded our expectations. The property itself was very clean and organized. The pool area is gorgeous and could not have been any better. We spent most of our time by the pool. The house is everything you can imagine and more! My friends and I were already talking about coming back before we had even left! Thank you for everything Greg! You are an amazing host!

    Jason2017-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • The pictures are an understatement compared to how stunning this house is in person. All of the amenities and finishes are top of the line. Our host Greg was super responsive to all questions before and during our stay. Checkin and checkout were seamless. Definitely looking forward to visiting this property again on our next visit to San Diego.

    nikia2017-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • First off, the villa we rented was absolutely gorgeous. The photos don’t do this home justice! You will be blown away the minute you drive through the front gate up to the home! Each space was so perfectly and thoughtfully designed, we never wanted to leave! The home was clean & the staff responded to my messages quickly when we had questions, making for a seamless vacation. Our only regret was that we didn’t stay longer!

    josemar2017-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful villa! The backyard is absolutely amazing. You really do feel like a millionaire staying here!

    Sylvia2017-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at Villa! We had the honor of being the first guests to stay in the home after being fully remodeled! Downtown and Central San Diego were close! A beautiful place and an even better host. The Villa exceeded our expectations and Greg was gracious and easy to work with. The Villa was very comfortable, modern, well decorated and stocked with everything you could possibly need for a perfect stay! Since the Villa was just remodeled, everything was brand new and worked great! Staying here was like staying at our own 5 Star Resort! The pool & hot tub were amazing! The kids loved the water slide, table tennis and volleyball!! We cooked & grilled every night at the outdoor kitchen and enjoyed eating at the outdoor dining area every night. Afterwards we watched Netflix on the couch in the evenings at the outdoor cabana/family room while watching the kids play in the pool. Our family loved staying at this home so much, we didn’t want to leave! We plan to come back here again next year for spring break and make it a yearly tradition! Thanks again for your amazing hospitality!

    Viktoria2017-04-13T00:00:00Z
  • This house is unreal! Pictures do not do this house justice. The host was great to work with! I would definitely recommend this house.

  • We stayed at Greg's home for 2 weeks. The home is very large with an amazing view. Suitable for large families. The home was very clean and neatly organized. All the cabinets and draws in the kitchen were labeled. The pictures are accurate I would stay here again.

    Chris2017-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and big house with an amazing kitchen and pool area with barbecue, located in a quiet residential neighborhood. Ideal for larger groups that are looking for a relaxed and comfortable stay. The laundry room was also very convenient.

    Jennifer2017-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed with a group of 12 (adults and kids) for 8 days. This is a beautiful home. Even though the pictures are amazing, they truly don't do this home justice. The pool/outdoor grill area is just fantastic. We were in the pool and hot tub every day and used the built in outdoor grill almost every day. Kids made smores on the fire pit. They even provide a super nice outdoor grill for beach/park trips. Game room with foosball and very nice pool table. AND a sauna in the downstairs bathroom! Beds are comfy and linens are upscale. Nice Washer/dryer. They even provide separate towels for the beach, beach chairs, a big cooler, and 2 Morey Boogie boards! You are basically within 20 minutes of most attractions/beaches/airport. Groceries, pharmacy, Starbucks, restaurants are 1 mile away, costco about 6 miles. Ashley (property manager) gave us absolute privacy, but was always just a phone call or text away. Super responsive to any needs/questions. If you have a big group and are willing to drive a little, this is THE house to stay in. Highly recommended and hope to stay here again on our next San Diego trip!

    Naved2017-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful home located in the hills. Has all the ammenties need for a fun filled trip. Would consider staying at Gregs house again if in San Diego ever again.

    Mount Helix is a beautiful, quiet neighborhood surrounded by trees and expansive views. Mount Helix Nature Park is only 1 mile away, and is a great morning or sunset hike. Historic downtown La Mesa is also only a few miles away with great shops and dining. There are few places in San Diego where you can enjoy acreage, privacy, views, and nature yet only be 15 minutes to downtown San Diego!
  • John and Melinda were great hosts and their home was amazing! The views were incredible which made our evenings around the fire that much more enjoyable. There was plenty of room for our two families and our six kids had a great time playing in the pool, playground and looking for fresh eggs from the chicken coop every morning. John and Melinda were very responsive to all our questions and needs during our trip and made us feel welcome in their home.

    Justin2017-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • The photos don't even do the beauty of this place justice - especially the view! A beautiful, bright, open home with truly stunning detail at every corner, it makes for a very luxurious getaway. Our group loved the design of each room. Incredible energy in this home and the hosts were so wonderful and responsive.

    Adriane2017-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Look no more! This place is BEYOND PERFECT! I stayed here with a group of girls for a girls weekend getaway and I cannot even begin to explain how satisfied we are with our experience at this beautiful place. The pictures truly do not make it justice to how comfortable and stunning it is. We loved waking up every morning and going for a hike, chilling by the heated up pool (definitely worth it) and watching the sunrises and sunsets. The hot tub and fire pit at so nice and wonderful and all the bedrooms extremely comfortable. The hosts are super nice and responsive, they check on you to see if you need anything and make you feel at home immediately! This place is perfect and close enough to downtown San Diego and the beaches via Uber. We could not be happier with our experience and hope to make it back sooner rather than later!

  • We have stayed in multiple AirBnb residences around the country and this was the best. The property is beautiful, well located, has a gorgeous view, and hosts to match. They not only greeted us at our night time arrival, but did so in a way that made us feel welcome. They even took the time to collect data on our accompanying guests to ensure group wide satisfaction. Although there is a lot to do in San Diego, we had no problem spending the day at the house. If we ever go back to San Diego, we hope they will still be welcoming guests.

    Catalina2016-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Where do I start? Hosts: Melinda & John are AMAZING. Truly a couple that wants to see you ENJOY your time. They both were so responsive to any and all questions I had. I appreciated how they never hesitated to visit and help us work anything we were unsure of. SUPER organize - the manual they give is honestly like a bible. All the questions you can think of are answered. They even give suggested venues and hot spots! Like they are INCREDIBLE! The home: Unreal. You see the pictures? Looks fake right? Nope - you're not dreaming. Every inch of this estate looks just like the photos. The view is not given justice. This home is THE home I have declared to continuously stay in whenever in SD. I LOVEDDDDD my birthday weekend here. Honestly there is so much I can say and write. None of it will do this experience justice. PLEASE book. PLEASE visit. PLEASE see the awesomeness for yourself. You will NOT be disappointed. I am elated I booked and now I am hooked. :-) See you soon guys!

    Jessica2017-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great place for a large family gathering. The pictures don't do justice to neither inside nor the scene. Melinda and John provide so many little goodies here and there, you keep getting pleasantly surprised.

    Sermet2017-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Say no more. This home has more pleasant surprises than you can count. The property description does not do it justice. Not only were my guest thrilled by the views, they almost got lost since the house seems to go on and on. Melinda is a wonderful host with her intuitive insights that exceeds her guest's expectations.

    Bill2017-05-11T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect ! Melinda and her family greeted us at the arrival; the house was spotless clean, it was more than we could expect for. The views are incredibly beautiful. On top of it they had indulged us with many goodies in the fridge. We have plans to go back many times and recommend it to friends.

    My place is close to all of the famous San Diego iconic activities are within 20 minutes of the bungalow. Mountains and fishing are less than 1 hour away, desert is 2 hours away and Disneyland is 1 1/2 hours away. You will love our bungalow because it is the perfect place for a family vacation. The pool, trampoline, play structure is wonderful and you don't need to drive anywhere. The pool is shared with our home. Our bungalow is close to everything in San Diego and driving is simple.
  • Kathleen's place was awesome. It was in a quiet neighborhood and we felt very safe. My husband, daughter (2yrs old) and I loved staying there. Everything was as described and the place was fully equipped. Her place is very spacious and can host 4-6 comfortably. There's a travel playpen, high chair, and stroller to use which helped us bring a lot less. It's conveniently located about 20 mins from San Diego Zoo, Sea World, downtown and airport. We weren't able to use the pool (which we knew ahead of time because it was too cold) but they have a beautiful backyard with a pool, jacuzzi and trampoline. We were told we can also use the BBQ but we didn't have a chance to. There's even a pool table! If we didn't come for such a short time we would've been happy just staying there without going anywhere. They have 3 beautiful and friendly dogs that my daughter loved playing with. Kathleen was so thoughtful to help us get some groceries knowing we had a toddler and was arriving late at night. As well she checked up on us mid stay to see if we needed anything. It was very easy to communicate with her and we would definitely stay there again.

    Tammy2017-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • If you are traveling with kids it's kind of hard to beat having a home away from home that comes with a swimming pool and a trampoline! We really enjoyed our stay. The hosts are incredibly generous and kind.

    Summer2017-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed all the amenities available here. The pool was a joy, beautiful and fun. There was also wood available in the fire pit and we used it. the location is quiet and peaceful. The dogs are friendly and good parking for two cars. Would stay with Kathleen again

    Chris2017-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Don't hesitate to book here. Kathleen is an amazing host. She provided everything we needed and more. Even offered to babysit our children if my wife and I needed a night away. The pool was very special and memorable. Kathleen and family even provided us a basket of smores for the fire they set up for us. Five stars all the way!

    Will2017-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the Bungalow! Kathleen, Landon and Kathleen's husband (don't think I caught his name) were amazing hosts! Kathleen was just a quick text/phone call away if we had questions on the pool, beach toys, etc... Riley and Buddy were amazing as well! They made us feel right at home. We brought our two sons with us (ages 14 and 10) and they absolutely loved staying in the bungalow next to the pool. The place is anywhere from 15-45 minutes to San Diego depending on traffic. I was worried about getting to dinner on time on Saturday, thinking there would be traffic going into the city at 6:30 and we made it there in 20 minutes. The heaviest traffic we experienced was during the week around 4-6 PM. I'll definitely be checking to see if this place is available on my next San Diego trip. Thank you Kathleen and Family!!!

    Holly2016-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place was clean, tidy, and as advertised. Kathleen and her family were a pleasure to meet and work with. The pool area truly can't be beat. Their dogs were very well behaved and fun to play with. I definitely recommend Kathleen's place to anyone!

    Anthony2016-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • My experience was more than what I expected. This was my family's first go at using AirBnB services and we were blown away by this experience. Kathleen and her family were extremely helpful. The guest unit was more than we expected. The kitchen was filled with cooking equipment, condiments, spices, and ice. The unit had two room air conditioners, which help to manage the temperature inside. They even had an iron and ironing board. My wife can vouch that irons are a must for me, and we have stayed at several hotels that didn't provide the room with an iron. All-in-all, my family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We are looking at making this our go to location whenever we need a getaway or are looking to visit friends in the area. It might even become our "Summer Home" for a week. Thanks Kathleen for an amazing first experience with AirBnB and for opening your home to my family. We had a wonderful time!!!

    Kenny2016-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Kathleen and her lovely family made us feel very welcome. We really enjoyed the accommodation and had so much fun in the pool it was a wrench to leave. Hope to stay again in the future.

We added many beautiful additions to the house ; a deck that over looks the mountain views, city lights and peak views of the ocean, a outdoor fireplace with the spectacular views of the city lights and mountains. It has 9 bedrooms (we also set up the 9th bedroom as an optional game/tv room if there are smaller groups that wouldn't need the extra room). There are 3 Jack and Jill bathrooms connected to two rooms each. There is Two toilet rooms along with a large dual shower head room In the master bedroom.

  • 5 out of 10 because of false advertising and issues. We stayed for 5 days/4 nights. Cons: The house is listed as having 6 bathrooms but has only 5. I knew before I booked but its false advertising They advertise two bedrooms on the bottom floor. One of them is a really a big TV room with a bed tucked away in one corner. There are 3 big patio doors in this room with no curtains or blinds or shades. None in our party wanted to sleep here. False advertising. I was told that the 3 other baths upstairs were all Jack&Jill baths. But in reality, only 2 were Jack&Jill baths, the 3rd one was an open bathroom, like a master, but shared by 2 bedrooms with no privacy for those 2 bedroom guests. False advertising. Pool heating worked on weekend after we complained, next 2 days it was barely warm. Shower handle in one bath broke, had to improvise and fix it myself. Air conditioning wasn't able to cool some areas. Over half the lights did not work. They have fancy switches, but also hidden switches in the Master cabinet and Garage. Mai’s husband told me he regrets putting in the smart switches as they’ve caused issues for them. The pool light worked. Spa light was out. During the check-in, we were told not to overload the kitchen refrigerator. There were 6 mini fridges to compensate but since freezer didn’t work, our frozen stuff thawed soon. Missing toilet papers in 2 baths, no extras, we had to go buy more from outside. No shower gel or body soap. They had shampoos/conditioners and hand soap everywhere. Only cooking essentials in kitchen were salt, sugar, pepper and 5oz cooking oil. No ketchup, oil spray, butter, condiments etc. Only one roll paper towel in kitchen. We paid extra for daily housekeeping and the housekeeper brought extras. No toaster. A new one was sent but that was only a 2 slice toaster. Lights in garage didn’t work so no one played table tennis. There is a basketball hoop but no basketballs, just one half-deflated soccer ball that the children used. They did not have putters or balls for the putting green. Pros: The house is big and very spacious. The internet speeds and wifi signal was good everywhere. The pool table was nice. In the kitchen there were plenty of dishes, cutlery and glasses for all of us. The beds in all the bedrooms were comfortable. The swimming pool was nice, only when the water was heated for 2 out of the 5 days. Three large patio doors in the living room so you can open them to fresh air. Enough room for 4 to 5 cars. Early check-in was allowed. Mai responded to emails quickly. But when we were told someone would come and help us figure out why half the lights don’t work, nobody came the next day. Grocery stores are 10mins drive.

  • We would absolutely recommend this rental! For this trip, we were traveling with our very large extended family and were thrilled to find a place that could accommodate everyone. The home is beautiful. All of the adults, children and grandchildren really enjoyed the gated pool and spa. It was a great space to bring people together and was nice to have separate quiet areas where younger children could take naps. The whole backyard with patios and seating was very comfortable with lots of options. We loved the pool table and the poker table. Mai was quick to respond to our texts to answer our questions. There were many mini refrigerators along with the main refrigerator, as well as lots of cupboard space with a good sized pantry. The air conditioning worked great and kept us cool in the hot San Diego weather. It is close to Old Town San Diego and beaches. We would absolutely love to stay here again! Thank you, Mai.

    Matt2017-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • Mai's home was great and was very responsive, despite being away from San Diego. Very friendly, and the home was amazing. Everything our staff wanted and needed for our retreat!

    Russell2017-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Had a wonderful experience at this property over a long 3 day weekend. Plenty of room for everyone in the party to have their own space. Great layout provides ample common room for everyone to spend time together as well. Would definitely like to stay here again!

    Ryan2015-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Rented this place for a group of friends for a weekend. Firstly let me say that the pictures did not do it justice. It is gorgeous, very spacious, has beautiful views and is well appointed in terms of amenities. The pool and spa were easy to use and access. The owners were very accommodating and understanding, really helped make this trip what is was. Definitely recommend it.

    Zalman2016-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, what an awesome weekend at Mai's home! My extended family (20 adults and 5 kids) just spent 3 nights here and had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful and fit all of us comfortably, we never felt crowded or confined. The amenities are perfect and provided entertainment for every age group. The house is beautiful without being intimidating, which was important because we had 5 kids under the age of 6. Everyone was able to enjoy themselves, whether swimming, playing ping pong, pool, or basketball, or just relaxing outside. If we needed anything (extra kitchen gadgets or more blankets), Mai was quick to respond and get us whatever we needed. The only (minor) issue is that it's a smart house so some of the lights were tricky to turn on/off. This was the perfect location to have our gathering and I wouldn't have changed a thing! Definitely a great option for a large group and various age groups. Thank you, Mai and family, for opening your home to us!

    Rebecca2015-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed at Mai's house for a guy's trip (14 of us), and what a perfect layout and setup. Mai was great and easy to work with, and the house absolutely lived up to expectations.

    Alex2017-04-10T00:00:00Z
  • Mai was very responsive both before our rental and after we arrived. The house is showing some normal wear and tear and has some quirky features, but the set up was perfect for our group and described accurately; we loved all the amenities such as washer/dryer, hot tub, pool, outdoor fireplace, multiple balconies, basketball hoop and putting green, and deck with beautiful views. Everyone found their mattress/bed to be very comfortable. While we were missing quite a few kitchen supplies, Mai responded immediately and brought over additional items. She is very focused on making your stay the best it can be. The location was awesome - without traffic it was just 20 min. to downtown and most of the site seeing we wanted to do. We also enjoyed a 2 mile hike up to the top of Mt. Helix (you can also drive to take in the amazing views!), and of course, the weather in San Diego is gorgeous, even in February!

  • The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.

    Tyler2017-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • The house was very clean and big enough to accommodate all 14 of us. The host was responsive and not invasive at all. like a 5star hotel plus more. Great view, close to freeway, shopping, and private. Loved every minute of our stay.

    Mekias2017-09-11T00:00:00Z

  • This lovely, spacious home was a perfect fit for our family reunion of 13. It was very clean and the owner was most gracious and responsive to the few questions we had. The location is in a secluded, quiet neighborhood offering commanding views of the surrounding area yet close to the major highways serving San Diego County. Everyone in our group suggested, without reservation, a return to this home for a future reunion.

  • I can't imagine a better host! Nancy went above and beyond our expectations which were high to start out with anyways! We arrived late evening and she was outside by the road waiting for my wife and I to pull in via Uber. The Cabana which had a clean modern feel to it, was in perfect condition and the view was incredible! Large shower and very clean bathroom. Since my wife and I had no means of transportation other than Uber/taxi, Nancy offered on numerous occasions to give us rides free of charge if it was near where she was heading that day. Gave us a bottle of wine and permission to use the huge grill and fire pit anytime we wanted. Nancy kept looking for ways to make us happy and made us feel very at home. We will be back no doubt!

    Will2016-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay in Nancys peaceful cabana – we even extended our stay because we liked it so much. The cabana is newly renovated, tastefully decorated and equiped with everything one can possibly need. The stay with Nancy was everything we could possibly hope for – and so much more. Nancy is the perfect hostess, attentive and caring for her guests. We will definetely come back and stay with Nancy again!

    Camilla2015-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Nancy is the perfect hostess and the views are gorgeous! The bottle of wine and homemade bread are an extra special touch. Can't wait till next time!

    sherry2017-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at the cabana of Nancy was truly amazing. The pool, the view, the bed, the bathroom; it was so nice. It started already when we arrived. Nancy was so warm and welcoming, and there was a fresh baked bananabread in the kitchen and a bottle of wine in the fridge. When we unpacked our suitcases and set down at the pool, Nancy joined us and was so interested in our story. We really liked that. The cabana is so new and clean. We just loved being there. Especially the open doors to the pool gives us the real holiday experience. Nancy gives us also advice for a nice sushi restaurant in the neighbourhood. It was great. If you wanna enjoy the real holiday feeling go to this cabana! In only twenty minutes you will be in the center of San Diego. We didn't wanna leave! :) and we're sure you will love this place as much as we do!

    Sifra2015-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Before our arrival, Nancy was very responsive to any questions we had, was very thorough in the information she provided and the communications were always friendly and positive. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with welcome suggestions of things to see and activities to do. Not to mention, the cabana was STUNNING, as was the view and the amenities. This place is even better than advertised. Wonderful gestures that deserve mentioning are Nancy's fantastic homemade banana bread, great wine selection/availability (both red and white), and overall warmth and thoughtfulness of the host(s). We also especially loved the sophistication of the decor and the modern touches. All of these added something very special to our visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it!

    Come stay at our beautiful garden ranch house in La Mesa. You will find food growing everywhere and we are more than happy to share some of it with you to cook in your stocked kitchen, just ask. We are only 15 minutes from Downtown, 20 to the beach and all that San Diego has to offer is very close: Sea World, the San Diego Zoo, Legoland, gorgeous La Jolla and much more!! If you have even a larger group look at the calendar for the Casita which is located on the same property and book them both!
  • Thanks to the Mic for providing details information about the house before arriving and during our stay

    Mohamed2017-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great value for the money. The house is spacious and the yard is simply amazing. Such a lovely spot to relax. Our family members rented the adjacent casita and it was just perfect to have everyone together. It was an easy drive to San Diego. Mic answered our texts promptly. The photos are accurate. The house is a little worn, and we think probably hadn't been thoroughly cleaned before we arrived (there were large spider webs in three different rooms, no toilet paper in one of the bathrooms, and a used bandaid in one of the showers). But we paid about why we would have spent on a single hotel room per night, so it was a good choice.

    RonNell2017-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • This home is just wonderful, the gardens and yards are beautiful. The house is neat and clean, the furniture is all very comfortable. Mic is very quick to respond with answers to any questions you might have. We had a great time staying there and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Plenty of space for everyone in the home. Lovely master suite made it easy to travel with an infant, yet have private space. Ample parking. Located within reasonable distance of several shopping plazas and restaurants. Easy access to Hwy 94.

  • This home was a wonderful place to stay. We came for a wedding taking place in downtown San Diego and it was the perfect size for our group of 8. We loved the location, the home is on the base of Mount Helix, and the neighborhood was beautiful and quiet. I would definitely stay here again.

    Located in a quiet and lush neighborhood, in hills of La Mesa. This private studio has everything you need to relax and experience the California life: comfy queen size bed, full kitchen, patio, bbq, and fire pit. Within walking distance to Mt. Helix Historic Park for a spectacular 365-degree view of San Diego. You are 20 minutes from the beach, airport, and mountains.
    This studio is my dream of a cabin in the mountains. Open sandblasted beams with lighting for mood setting. Large new shower and bathroom. Nice sitting area for TV viewing or playing a game of cards. Indoor outdoor living with indoor temperature control for your comfort. A full kitchen with an island for dining or you may like to dine outside on the patio with a barbeque and enjoy a firepit in the evening. The decor is inviting and comfy home away from home feeling. This space can host up to six people for a meal.
    My neighborhood located in "Mt Helix" with winding roads for interesting walks. People are friendly and respectful. You can walk for miles over these unique streets and paths. Our favored restaurant is "The Brigantine" less than a mile away. However, we're are just a few miles from downtown La Mesa which has a diverse selection of eateries and cafes. A favored town in So Cal. with antique shops and interesting stores as well as a trolley stop.
  • My stay in Pamela's Mt. Helix Guest House was superlative... an absolutely gorgeous accommodation and a very gracious host! The property is as described and even better in person! The Mt. Helix neighborhood is beautiful... and Pamela's place it tucked away enough that it really made you feel like you were a little bit off the beaten path—yet it is convenient to anything you would need during a stay (and it really is 20 minutes from all the major sights). It was the quiet respite I needed the end of some long days visiting family for the holidays. You can really tell that Pamela has put a lot of thought and love into this property... lots of personal touches everywhere that makes one feel immediately at home. Pamela is brand new to hosting, and as a fellow Airbnb host I know there are always a few minor upstart bugs to work out... but I'm sure she will have things figured out quickly and will be well on her way to being a Superhost in no time! I very much look forward to future stays, but I also know that I will need to book way in advance because this is going to be a very popular place! Thanks again for everything Pamela!

Pamela is a great host who communicates well and encourages her guests to take full advantage of of the beautiful and very private space she has created. The house is immaculate, spacious, and comfortable. The private outdoor patio has all the amenities needed to sit and enjoy nature and provides a soothing space to relax. Our future trips to San Diego will definitely include a stay at Pamela's. Thank you Pamela for a wonderful experience.

  • If you are going to San Diego, you must stay at Pamela’s!! Hands down the best Airbnb we’ve ever stayed at! It is immaculate, beautiful, serene and anything else you could think of! Pamela has thought of everything! A fully stocked kitchen with spices and necessities! A beautiful up to date stove. Beautiful touches everywhere! Patio with a fire pit and plenty of comfy options will keep you from going out on the town! We can’t wait to go back!!

    Rebecca2017-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely beautiful! Light and airy, beautiful high ceiling with exposed wood that has been sand-blasted to soften the appearance. Pamela is also a lovely person. I highly recommend this place! You will need a car or I suppose can use Uber as not close to public transportation. My mother-in-law stayed here and enjoyed it.

  • excellent place to stay:)

  • We usually camp when we go to So Cal, but my son was graduating Marine Boot Camp so we had to plan a quick trip. Pamela's place was wonderful, less than most and was very convinent, more than we expected. Everything was provided for us to have a nice stay other than food. Very private separate house with separate entrance and off street parking. It is in a quite neighborhood away from the highways, but not so far you get lost. Pamela's place is on just about an acre, and away from the street, Pamela said "we are in the country here" ! There is a nice large outdoor area with BBQ grill and fire pit. 20-25 mins from San Diego, and many beaches. Pamela even had beach chairs a beach umbrella and towels. Much more than any hotel would have done. We loved our stay and will be back. Thank Amy & Charley

    My place is close to public transport and family-friendly activities. You’ll love my place because of the outdoors space, the neighborhood, the kitchen, and the comfy beds. My place is good for couples, business travelers, families (with kids), and big groups. We also recently replaced all lower bunk mattress pads with actual full size 9" mattresses, which are far more comfortable for a good night's rest.

  • Great house in a great neighborhood! We thoroughly enjoyed getting ready for my wedding in the master bath and the fact that we had tons of room and plenty of bathrooms for everyone! The owner was amazing to work with and emailed me with updated pictures before our trip, I always felt like I could ask her anything!

  • Nice spacious for large groups. A bit far from nightlife but doable. Very clean, BYO-baskebtall

    Stanley2017-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • First, the welcome basket was extremely nice! The house was great for our family. We had several adults and kids, and the fenced backyard was a great place for the kids to play and for us to hang out on the patio. The neighborhood was tucked away, yet easily accessible with grocery stores, Target, and anything you need nearby. We were on Coronado within 20 minutes. The owners left a very nice setup with towels, soap, and accessories. The bunk beds are not full mattresses, so not the most comfortable. The only real downside is it seemed like spider season seeing some inside and outside.

    Crystal2016-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • The house was a fantastic size for our family. It really allowed all of our extended family to either come visit or stay with us! The pool table and family games were a nice touch. And the welcoming package of snacks and drinks were appreciated! Also, there was a great patio set with a great covering. It made evenings out in the backyard wonderful! The couches were also nice. From an improvement standpoint, the main point to be aware of is that three of the bedrooms have bunkbeds, and the lower bunks used thin pads instead of mattresses, which made them unsleepable for adults. If the owner upgraded them to real mattresses, that would make a HUGE difference!

    Justin2016-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying in this awesome home. We were greeted with a gift basket with goodies and didn't have any issues. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others .

    Kulia2017-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The house is big with lots of inside and outside space. Kitchen appliances are new and work very well. Everything was very clean and tidy. Zara had a welcome basket and water next to each bed which made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. Also, the bathrooms were equipped with a few toiletteries which was very nice. We were able to reach most of our destinations in San Diego writhin about 20 minutes, which was perfect. One problem is that the mattresses on the lower beds of the bunk beds were very uncomfortable, we highly recommend changing these out and then we could say the house was perfect! Will definitely stay at this house again (if mattresses are changed ;). Oh, also communication with Zara before our stay was very easy. Thank you Zara!

    Marian2016-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Zarah’s house was a perfect fit for our softball team of 16 year old girls & their coaches. Plenty of room, clean, great space outdoors, & a great host. Thank you so much….we would highly recommend your home and stay there again.

    Jennifer2017-07-15T00:00:00Z

    My place is a home with attached guest quarters (private entrance, yard and parking spot). You’ll love the views and privacy of an one acre lot perched on a hillside. Enjoy the beauty of city lights surrounded by mountain ranges from the hot tub and pool (shared wth host family). This place is a 30 minute drive to popular places like the beach, downtown, SDSU, SeaWorld, SD Zoo and Chargers football stadium. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
    This property is located on Mount Merritt above El Cajon in San Diego County. There are neighbors but still a lot of privacy in this neighborhood. Groceries, restaurants and other services are a short drive away (5 minutes or less). El Cajon is close to lakes, hot springs and nature trails, and about a 30 minute drive to popular San Diego tourist destinations.
  • My girlfriend and I had the perfect weekend getaway at Aria's place! It was the perfect location to escape the city noise, but not too far of a drive to reach San Diego during the day. We enjoyed having access to all the different amenities specially being able to take advantage of the hot tub at night to take in the view. Aria was great at communicating with us and checking in to see if we needed anything. I would definitely stay here again!

    Daniel2017-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Our first booking with airbnb couldn't be any better thanks to Aria. Photos are as accurate as can be, such a quiet, cozy, clean guesthouse. The whole process from booking to checking out was so smooth, had absolutely no problems. Aria made sure that we were able to have as much information and privacy as possible. Having access to the pool/spa overlooking the city was the dream, definitely don't want to miss out on such a relaxing experience. We had such a wonderful weekend that we will definitely be booking again the next time we visit SD. Thank you so much again Aria!

    Tiara2017-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely location in the hills outside of San Diego but with excellent access to the downtown and beaches. There is a lap pool with a wonderful view of the surroundings. The accommodations are clean and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is basic and not suitable for gourmet meals but there is a full refrigerator and facilities for one-burner meals. It was more than sufficient for our needs. Aria made the washer and dryer available to us to clean our travel clothes. This was a nice bonus after a week and a half of travel. Aria and her husband are very helpful and respond quickly to texts. This is a place we would love to stay in again if we are in the area.

    Kateřina2017-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • Easily the best place to stay when visiting San Diego or the surrounding area. Aria is an amazing host and the place/location is beautiful. 10/10!!!

    Jake2017-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I absolutely loved staying at Aria's place! The location was awesome - quiet with incredible views and not far from some amazing hikes that we took advantage of during our stay. The place itself was super clean and perfect for what we needed. Aria and her husband Levi were extremely accommodating and wonderful. The whole property has a lot to offer - loved spending time in the patio area with the breathtaking scenery. Would highly recommend a stay at Aria's if you're looking to stay in or around the El Cajon area.

    Katie2017-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Aria's place is accurate in photos and description. Great scenery, clean, and well organized. She was a great host. Very attentive and easy to communicate with. She let us check in early and provided us with water, coffee, and snacks. Highly recommend the stay!

    Maiva2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really wonderful stay at this place. It is a great house which is very complete and as promised. Especially the provided food/snack/drinks were a nice touch. All communication we had with the host was quick and efficient. She provided excellent description of everything we would need and checked in with us a few times to make sure everything was good. Thanks for a great stay!

    Thijs2017-09-21T00:00:00Z

  • Our stay at Mario's home was wonderful - the house was clean, stocked, and exactly as described online. You can tell that Mario and his team take pride in doing a home rental service.

    Lisa2016-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Large specious home with all the modern amenities. Check in and details for the rental was easy. Close to grocery, gas and downtown San Diego. We would definite consider returning. Thank you!

    Mai2016-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Mario's home was just as described, he was very communicative and shared all the details to checking in and was available immediately at our request. His home was perfect for the event we were having for my son's third birthday party where we expected 65 guess only eight of us stayed in the home but there was room for plenty more. The home is large and very Open never felt crowded at all. All of our guest that attended the event commented on how beautiful the property was and how easily accessible it was as well. Parking was great and everything was as described would definitely stay here again on a future visit to San Diego.

    Naomi2016-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is our second Christmas at marios house . Still the same excellent service and communication . Very accommodating host. House is complete and very very clean upon our arrival. We hope that this will be our yearly Christmas home. Thanks Mario for being such a wonderful host.

    Carina2016-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great location. We used it with a soccer team here to play games and we were only 10 minutes from the field. Half hour to the beach. Easy access to downtown San Diego. The girls had a wonderful time. Lots of space on coaches in the living-room, so that everyone could gather together. Instructions were all easy to follow. Everything went off without a hitch!

    Janet2017-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for a wonderful experience! Our extended family stayed in the main house over the Thanksgiving holiday, all having come from out of town, to be close to our 90 year old mother. The house has spacious gathering areas where we could sit and catch up with one another. The TV is upstairs, so watching football was not distracting to other conversations taking place. Hint: bring an HDMI cord to connect a laptop, there is no local cable connection. We prepared a large Thanksgiving dinner for 22 guests and had more than enough room in the kitchen for two cooks! The large counter spaces accommodated our prep, then served as the buffet line! The children were happy playing outside, and all felt safe in the secured compound. Our host graciously responded quickly when we could not initially locate the bbq grill, but once we connected all was well! We would not hesitate to return here next time we have a large family gathering!

    Pamela2015-11-28T00:00:00Z

  • Beat checked in on us a couple days before our stay to confirm everything. The place was very clean, modern, and well stocked with thoughtful beverages! There is room for two couples to sleep - one bed and on futon type couch. It is all one room but so spacious and a bookshelf providing a bit of probably between the two sleeping areas. The property is gorgeous! Affluent neighborhood.

    Cassandra2017-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay. The host is very helpful and the 'casita' is both large and comfortable, with several sitting areas. So much more spacious than your average Air BnB ! It has everything you might need, from a nice kitchenette area to a private outdoor patio and a built in washer/dryer (tucked away and inconspicuous). The larger house and the property are quite beautiful.

    Mary2017-10-15T00:00:00Z

  • Beat is a great host. Very nice and helpful. Showed to me all the details of the Casita while checking in. The living privacy is very good and it's very quiet. Parking is really convenient. Also the yard is so beautiful. I just stayed in the Casita for a whole week with my family and we all feel it was a great experience. Will definitely consider it for my next stay in San Diego!

    2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • The Casita located at Beat's home is well worth the time and stay. He has thought out the needs for his guests and is very accommodating. The home is very clean and though it may seem far from the ocean it is not. I was able to get on the freeway with easy access and travel to most destination within 10-15 minutes. I definitely recommend a stay here.

  • Mike was an awesome host and his home was beautiful. Rolling hills with a spectacular view in a neighborhood that appeared so safe you have to wonder if residents lock their doors. The amenities were perfect for our family of eight, basketball court, fire-pit, water fountains, beautiful deck with stainless steel grill, streaming TV with nice surround sound, it was absolutely perfect for our four day stay. Twenty minutes to Sea World and the San Diego Zoo, and 30 minutes to LaJolla Beach, we were completely satisfied and would definitely stay with Mike again on a future trip.

    Cary2015-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Mike for allowing me to stay at your home.The house is perfectly situated in one of my favorite neighborhoods of San Diego. Our friends and family enjoyed the spectacular 180 degree view from Mt. San Miguel to Point Loma to Mt. Helix, the gentle on shore breezes and the outdoor amenities. Especially the grandchildren who loved running around in the back yard. We enjoyed a walk thru the peaceful streets and met some of your friendly neighbors. Mike is a great person to deal with and a gracious host. He responded to all of our questions and communications quickly. Renting this house is a must for my next visit. Thanks Again August 2013

  • We are locals and, just before a visit by several relatives, a pipe broke in our house. Mike graciously accommodated us with very short notice. This was the perfect location for us - fantastic view of the city; short drive to all the tourist attractions; and a home with plenty of room, fantastic back yard with plenty of play area for the kids. We really enjoyed our stay, as did our guests.

    Steve2014-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • I cannot say enough good things about this rental. We LOVED it! Even from booking Mike, the host, was very friendly. He answered all my emails / questions typically within the hour! He made check in/check out very easy and convenient. The house was exactly as described. It was perfect for our large group (6 adults and 4 kids!). We ate most meals out on that stunning porch. And the location was ideal. It was about 20-30 minutes from the beach, Seaworld and San Diego Zoo. Plus its only about 5 minutes from the closest grocery store. I was really surprised and thrilled to find that the rooms are fairly well insulated. We put the kids to bed upstairs/downstairs and hung out in the kitchen and living room. Even with our laughing, watching TV and whatnot, the kids didn't hear or wake up! Thanks Mike for such a great experience, we will definitely be back!

    Rachel2015-08-03T00:00:00Z

  • What can I say. This was my first Airbnb experience and it was perfect. Gene was more than accommodating. He welcomed me and showed me around. The studio was perfect, clean, and modern. They have a huge backyard with a pool and tiki bar which was amazing. The area is very tranquil. Once settled in Gene stopped by to make sure everything was ok and to see if I needed anything. I highly recommend this place as it is first rate.

Definitely recommend staying here 200% and will look here if I am ever in the area again. Thanks so much, Gene and Ilana!

The surrounding neighborhood was peaceful and very quiet. Gene really is an amazing host and a great person from what we experienced. We can't wait to come back. We probabaly won't look at any other places to stay in San Diego area :)

    We are empty nesters that built an awesome entertaining and outdoor play area for our kids, and now they have gone on to their own lives. The pool is lonely! Our rental of the lower level of our home and outdoor area (600 square foot common room with sofa bed and kitchenette, plus a private bedroom with bathroom) gives guests a private entrance off the deck with complete privacy. We are located close to major freeways and 20 minutes from the zoo, beaches and the Gaslamp Quarter.
    Extensive outdoor recreation area, with large deck, two-story gazebo, two dining areas (one 8 person, one 6 person), pool, jacuzzi, fire pit, etc. Private bedroom with attached bathroom has full bed; common room has queen sleeper sofa. All amenities provided, include boogie boards, games, movies, etc.
    We are in the hills right off the 94 freeway, which is a quick trip to Gaslamp/Petco, the beaches and the zoo. Our rental is a great home base to experience all that San Diego County has to offer. Warning: once you get poolside, you may not want to leave.
  • Our stay here was amazing. We planned on staying for 3 nights but added another night because we didn't want to leave. The pool is outstanding and beautiful as is the entire backyard area. Carla and Jim were amazing hostesses too, giving us anything we needed, while giving us privacy too. The pictures do not do justice at all- it is even more breathtaking in real life. We would definitely would come again and recommended this place to all our family and friends already.

  • These accomodation went above and beyond what we were expecting! Stellar! The granny flat was so much bigger than we thought it would be and they provided absolutely everything necessary. My 14 year even commented that he could tell they put a lot of thought and care into what was provided and how the place was decorated. We used the pool, jacuzzing, and grill and al were AMAZING! They gave us just enough privacy but definitely did not neglect us. In the morning, they set out fresh baked muffins! I could go on and on about this experience because they did sooo many unbelievable things, but will sum it up with, We will be back and urge anyone looking for a great experience, to come here.

    Anna2017-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Carla was a sweetheart and promptly in responding to any questions or concerns I had. The place is great place to relax, not to mention her interior design and decore is so peaceful and makes it feel like a resort. I will recommend this place to anyone over a hotel. :-)

    Delia2017-07-24T00:00:00Z

It was a true pleasure to meet them and stay at there place, they made us feel like we were long time friends and welcomed us into there home. There house is awesome and the pool is one of the nicest pools we have been in. Can't wait to stay with them again.

    bryan2017-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • The pictures do not accurately display just how amazing this place is. The home is beautiful and the backyard is breathtaking. They really mean it when they say they will interact only as much or as little as you ask. Carla and her husband were incredibly helpful and kind. Best hosts ever. My husband and I woke up to wonderful freshly baked muffins Sunday morning. They really go above and beyond here. Will definitely stay here again next time we're in town!

  • We felt right at home in this quaint guest house. It was private, clean and comfortable for my family of 4. The pool, waterslide & hot tub was a highlight of our vacation to the San Diego area. We wouldn't change a thing about our stay in La Mesa. Thank you for everything!

    Cathy2016-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • It was a beautiful home in a beautiful area. We very lucky to stay at Judy's place. The location was about 15+ minutes away from downtown, which is a very inexpensive uber/lyft ride. We did not much time in spring valley but enjoyed the mornings and evenings. The tenant was very nice and did not bother us at all durning the stay.

    Ashley2016-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • Loved this house! We rented it over the Christmas weekend so my husband and I, and four adult kids with 2 spouses and a boyfriend could all stay together for a family holiday and be close to extended family in Lakeside, Chula Vista, and LaJolla. The house was close to the highway so super easy access to everywhere we needed to go. Also within 1/2 mile to grocery store, CVS, gas stations, fast food and pizza. The kitchen has been updated with a great appliances, we had family dinners the entire time and also used the BBQ for our Xmas eve dinner. If it hadn't been raining that night we would have eaten outside in the spacious patio. The house has an open floor plan and big windows and doors that look out and open up to a patio deck the full length of the house. There is a beautiful view, hot tub, and fire pit along with patio furniture that allowed us to have quiet time and conversations late into the night around the fire. We even roasted marshmallows one night. Judy has done a nice job of leaving essentials at the house. The kitchen has a nice variety of spices and the bathroom has soap and shampoos. We really enjoyed our time there and will probably use it again for future family events in San Diego.

    Elizabeth2016-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a wonderful time at Judith's lovely house near San Diego. We are a large family and always enjoy places that allow for communal sharing amongst our family members while still being large enough for privacy when we need to retreat in the evening. Judith's place was all that and so much more. From the amazing outdoor area to the multiple bedrooms it couldn't have been a better suited place for a family reunion and get together. there was even space to keep the teenagers happy bThe property is close enough to all the activities San Diego has to offer yet in a wonderful orchard setting outside the city. Judith was the perfect distant host who was just a quick text or phone call away. Thanks for the wonderful memories Judith!

    jami2016-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • Judy was the consummate hostess. Her communication was thorough and timely. She checked in with me a few times during the stay to ensure we had anything we needed and was available to answer questions as well. Her helpful hints about stores, restaurants, and things to do in the area were spot on. The house itself was absolutely perfect. A great mixture of modern and classic. The view was incredible! If ever in this area and need a place to stay that is close enough to things yet far enough away to relax, this is the place to be!

    Heidi2016-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • Judith was a fabulous host from the start to finish. She sent me an email with easy instructions for getting to the house and a list of things to do and restaurants. The house was clean and comfortable. It had a cool retro/ 70s vibe with lots of cool and quirky treasures. The back patio was fabulous with hot tub, fire pit, and BBQ. Nice clean and comfy sheet! Would highly recommend.

    Hannah2016-03-08T00:00:00Z

  • We really enjoyed our 10 days at Kevins secluded bungalow From the moment we arrived his hospitality was first class. Upon arrival a warm friendly welcome and short well-informed Guide to the facilities along with a fridge stocked with our favourite drinks. Kevin was always on hand to answer any questions and make our stay as pleasant as possible, nothing was too much trouble. The bungalow was very comfortable and homely the big bed,television, air-conditioning and coffee machine all making us feel at home. Walk out of the double doors to the amazing swimming pool and garden area. The pool perfect for swimming in nice and warm, plenty of sun loungers to enjoy the beautiful weather. We particularly enjoyed the hot tub perfect for watching the sun go down ...amazing. Kevin gave us all the information on the local area and was kind enough to supply us with lots of different coupons saving us money on loads of great things!! The Bungalow is situated on the most beautiful golf course, again Kevin went to the pro shop to make sure we got the best deal. We will without doubt be returning to the bungalow and have recommended it to all of our friends thank you for a wonderful stay Kevin and your family.

    Hayley2016-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, what an amazing getaway. I live in a busy area of hillcrest San Diego, so I was looking for a peaceful birthday retreat. Upon arrival, Kevin greeted us and gave us a tour of the property and had a bottle of wine and a birthday balloon waiting for me! What a sweetie! We took full advantage of his beautiful pool, jacuzzi, and BBQ area. On my birthday, Kevin allowed us to have a few friends over for an afternoon BBQ and we had so much fun. We used the slide and waterfall a couple times and it felt like I was 12 again. The king size bed is absolutely a dream. I actually would like to find out the brand of his pillow top because now I want it! I'm very grateful that Kevin and his family share this beautiful property for others to enjoy, and I can't wait for an opportunity to come back. Thank you thank you!! :-)

    Chelsey2015-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • All I can say is WOW! This place deserves 5 stars. Kevin and Mary make sure all the bases are covered from chocolates on the pillow at arrival to a stocked mini bar. So kind and helpful with all our questions for local fun and super comfy bed. Bathroom is clean and water pressure is fantastic. It truly was secluded unless you sent Kevin a text, then they were prompt to do whatever it was that was requested. For example, hey were kind enough to print out our tickets for the Giants vs. Padres game when we ordered from our phone. Great WIFI connection as well. My husband golfed on the beautiful course right behind the property and we enjoyed a delicious meal there as well. Nice secluded hill to hike right behind the house with spectacular views of the course below and hills. Felt more like we were staying with old friends rather than a new acquaintance. We will be back! Best pool in a home ever.

    Patti2015-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Kevin's cabana location is perfect! The neighborhood is a beautiful gated golf course community. We went in December which meant the pool was too cold for us, but the hot tub was great at night. Kevin was incredibly accommodating with anything we needed and a great resource for recommending fun things to do around Jamul and places to visit in San Diego. This is definitely an Airbnb gem worth checking out. Can't wait to find an excuse to go back for another great weekend getaway!

    Amy2015-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • After a long work week, my husband and I were looking for a relaxing stay-cation. Kevin's place was just what we needed. It's still winter so we didn't swim, but we BBQ'd, watched DirectTV (so many OnDemand channel options!) and enjoyed a soak in the awesome jacuzzi! It's very peaceful, private and clean. We only stayed one night, but will definitely be back in the summer to swim in that amazing salt water pool and hike the trail!

    Maria2017-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • We went up for the night because we were hiking in the area. We had an awesome night. Kevin is very nice and accommodating. The bungalow is private and separate from their house. The pool and hot tub are amazing and the view of the golf course is great. Great option for a few nights away from San Diego.

    Zack2016-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • This was my second trip to Kevin's amazing bungalow and I loved every second of it! Kevin is the kindest of hosts, and I appreciate all of his help. If you're looking for a relaxing, mind-calming, soul-replenishing vacation, this is the place for you! I leave feeling like myself again, ready to take on another work week (though secretly wishing I was still there). If you haven't read my previous review, please do (July 2017) for extra details. But in a nutshell, the bungalow is perfect, extremely clean and will make you feel like you're at home. You'll spend much of you time enjoying the glorious pool and soothing waterfall during the day and comforting hot tub at night. I cannot express how much I love this place! I also cannot wait to return. Thank you Kevin again!! I look forward to seeing you soon!

    Nicole2017-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Kevin was such a great host, and the bungalow was gorgeous! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants a private and beautiful experience while enjoying San Diego! Kevin allowed us to enjoy his beautiful swimming pool and hot tub and gave us champagne to celebrate Valentine's Day. I have nothing but positive things to say about our experience and I would definitely recommend my friends and family stay here.

    20 minutes from the airport, to downtown and just about everything else! Spend a day at the beach - beach umbrella, chairs, and towels provided. You'll love the location, the ambiance, the outdoor space, and the neighborhood. Good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers 18 and over. Our bungalow is quiet and very private. You have your own grill, outdoor table, umbrella, and hammock. No smokers please.
    Our home is unique, peaceful, beautiful. You will feel like you are in your own private tropical resort. We have sunshine most of the year. The outdoor space is lovely any time of day or evening. While the San Diego area has many places to see and visit, guests often comment that they wished they had planned more time to stay just to enjoy the space to relax. During the Spring and Summer months the pool is amazing. In Winter the pool is too cold for swimming, however the deck and lounge chairs are wonderful to take in the sun for sun bathing or just a nap outdoors!
    We live in the Mt. Helix area of San Diego County. Mt. Helix is known for its older unique homes, big trees, hills and winding roads.
  • Teresa and Louis were delightful and their place was fantastic! The space is just as described and spick & span! Great if you want to explore San Diego and surrounding areas or just sit by the lovely pool! So looking forward to returning

    Karan2017-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • The location worked well for us to be out of downtown a bit but close enough to travel to the San Diego zoo or the Wild animal park. The pool is great and we enjoyed it the end of May. The kitchen is amble and the bed and t.v. is comfy. Terese was helpful and responsive.

    Mary2017-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • Teresa was the best host! Everything in the apartment was spotless and everything we needed or asked her for she helped us out with! We really enjoyed our stay here and we will be coming back next time we are in the area! Definitely a good place to stay at on your vacation! We checked in very late bec we were delayed and she was very accommodating. Thank you!!

    Nina2016-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Teresa was an excellent host! Responsive, accommodating, and had provided anything we could have needed. The Bungalow was extremely clean and the pool was such a bonus. 20-30 minute ride to Downtown and a lot of the beach areas. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone!

    Judith2017-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Teresa and Luis were awesome and their place was beautifiul, a private little oasis. The space is just as described and incredibly clean. Communication was easy and quick, and the surrounding area is great if you want to explore San Diego or anywhere else nearby. It was about 20 minutes from everywhere my wife and I went. Would highly recommend to anyone coming to San Diego!

    Chris2017-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Teresa's bungalow is a wonderful getaway. Very clean, fully equipped kitchen, beautiful patio & pool - a wonderful place to hang out... 15 minutes from San Diego and surrounding area - would love to stay again some day!

    Susan2017-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Theresa and Luis's place is the best Airbnb experience my husband and I have had so far. Checking in was easy. There are no keys since they have number password locks on the gate and door to the bungalow. This made is easy to access and made us not worry about losing the key during our stay. The bungalow is private. It was easy to get to and there also was a grocery store down the street which made grocery shopping easy. I stayed for 11 days and I wish I could have stayed longer! The backyard is very spacious. We enjoyed the jacuzzi and the grill. Theresa and Luis gave us the privacy my husband and I needed. We never ran into them and it really did feel like we had the whole backyard to ourselves. The bungalow itself inside is all up to date and clean. We cook more than we go out and cooking in the kitchen was easy. Necessary cooking utensils were readily available along with seasoning. In the bathroom there was shampoo and body wash available which saved us the first night because we forgot to bring our shampoo. Water was also available to us in the garage. We drink a lot of water so this came in handy throughout the day. I would definitely recommend Theresa and Luis's bungalow if you are coming to San Diego. You will feel like you're at your own private resort. The owners are nice and clean. They responded to our messages immediately when we needed them. They made us feel welcome. We will definitely look into staying with them again next time we are in San Diego!

    Shannon2016-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • It was a great time at Teresa's Tropical Pool Paradise. It felt right at home. Very cozy with lots of privacy. Teresa was accommodating with all the questions and needs I had. Will definitely recommend this place.

This particular AirBnB was perfectly situated between 2 of the main expressways yet nicely seculded in a beautiful forest area in the foot hills. Hiking trails were nearby as well as a stores, like Starbucks! I will be back for my next business trip for sure!

    Angela2017-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • I came to San Diego for "Me" time, meditation, and recreation. I got just that. This charming home is situated up on a hill in its own little oasis. It's quiet, roomy, comfortable, accessible to many things. I checked in my first day expecting to shower and relax by the pool, instead I fell asleep in the comfy bed and linens provided. My day got started nice and early the following day. I was given a tour and lay of the land on day one and was told to pretty much feel at home. That's exactly how I felt. It was Ike visiting an old friend. Very open and personable hosts. And I just adored the smell of the lemon trees in the morning. I appreciated that when I wanted to visit the beach I was offered a chair and an umbrella (since I didn't think that far...and would've needed to purchase one). I especially appreciated the suggestions for recreation like hiking, lakes (for running), beaches, and restaurants to try. I was also very happy with how close everything was. On my journey I ran two lakes, hiked a mountain, visited two beaches, and found 3 hidden gem restaurants (from bagels for breakfast,smoothies for lunch, to upscale authentic Italian) I also took in a night on the town in the gas lamp district of the city and all of this was within 15-25 mins. It was the perfect place for me. I would stay again and would definitely recommend this host.

  • Ms. B and her husband were very welcoming. They offered great suggestions and tips for the area. Their home is beautiful. It's about 20-25 mins from the city. I rented a car so I'm not sure about how easy and accessible public transportation would be. I went for hiking and the beach. when I arrived, another guest was leaving and she just raved about her experience! This was a great sign for the start of a great stay. I would love to stay here anytime I came back to San Diego.

    Danielle2016-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Ms. Bee is beyond fantastic. She commentated my early arrival time. The room she arranged for me is cozy and cute. The bed is very comfortable and I fell sleep the very first day. Her hubby Ty is a nice gentleman with a huge heart and quite laid back attitude makes me feel like coming to a good friend's house They are generous too and I really have had a great time. Another thing is the location is at a very nice neighborhood, though it took me 15 to 20 minutes easy walk to a nearby bus stop to use the wonderful SAN Diego public transportation system. I was out everyday for a 7 day stay, except the last day as I am out of my stems. It's such a good place for a solo traveler like me to stay in her upstairs room. But, they also has a very nice room downstairs with its own bathroom for a couple. Overall, I really think I got a very good deal to pay so little and got so much. To me, it's like Gos's sending gift to meet my need and my very limited budget. At this very moment, I do wish I can write as a good writer or paint as a proffional painter. So, people out there can have a clear version or picture to see the house and taste what I have been experienced. Hope my brief will let people like me perk their interest to make a good choice to make a reservation of Ms. Bee's house as your destination place to rest and relax. After all I have enjoyed my staying and it has made an unforgettable memory even when I get older later. Hope you all like what I described and wish you a goo stay and a safe and wonderful trip in SAN Diego. God bless us all. Thanks for your time to read my humble review

  • Ms. B made me feel welcome immediately. She was very down to earth and took the time to tell me about the best places to eat and shop, offered me things to eat, etc. Her home was clean and she responded quickly to any texts I had when she wasn't at home to answer my questions. She was close to restaurants and only about 12 miles from the hospital Kaiser (I'm a travel nurse), so a great place for travel nurses to Airbnb until you find somewhere to rent. I would definitely recommend Ms. B's place.

    The space is close to downtown, just 15 minutes outside the city. You’ll love the ambiance, the outdoor space, and the views. It's a perfect place for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. * Free Lightening fast Wifi * Free coffee * Great sunset view * Private open 1.44 acres * Panoramic glass doors * Contemporary comforts * Full office space setup for business travelers
    Large, 1.44 acres of wide open space with shade trees and sunbathing lawn.

Excellent background for shooting corporate video and model shoots. No DJ'd Parties or events over 50 people at this time. *****PLEASE BE AWARE: The exterior lot is undergoing beautification improvements, we do have the house dusted prior to every arrival but dust does accumulate during your stay, please excuse the dust********
    The older neighborhood is not a reflection of the peaceful resort like property. The property is very safe and self-contained.
  • Very nice home for a few days' getaway. It'd be perfect for couples without any young children. Overall it's a very safe and clean house. The host is very attentive and helpful. I recommend this home for your travel.

The surrounding area is quiet and peaceful and great for a romantic getaway in my opinion. We felt so relaxed and happy and the place is fully stocked ! Thank you so much, DJ & Janna. We will most definitely be back ASAP!

  • Alice was a very friendly and welcoming host. We arrived earlier than expected and she accommodated us. We also had an issue with the hot water in the shower and she was very responsive in getting that taken care of. The apartment is spacious and clean, and there is a full kitchen for cooking meals. Try not to leave the front door open for too long because there are a lot of bugs surrounding the apartment due to the shrubbery. Overall, the stay was good and I would recommend Alice's place!

    Yvonne2015-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location, remote and quaint. Would highly recommend this location to anyone. Home had all we needed - was stocked and spacious. Great morning light. Food & gas all nearby. Thanks!

  • Alice was a sweetheart, the apartment was clean and comfortable, and the views were beautiful. I plan to visit San Diego this summer, and I'm really hoping to stay with Alice again.

    David2017-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Picture don't show how beautiful and comfortable the place is, we'll they do but when you see it in person it looks even more incredible, you would never regret staying at this beautiful house, my stay was amazing, would definitely come back in a heartbeat

  • My hubby and I had a pleasant stay at Alice's place. It is really nice, quiet and simply peaceful at night ---exactly what we are seeking. The place is well equipped and just 5 mins driving to most of the things one can possibly need. And Alice is a wonderful host, very hospitable and attentive to our needs. We will for sure stay here again!

    chia-ling2015-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome experience. The property is high up with a great view, completely independent within a large gated property. A couple of miles of highway 94, so 15-20 minutes from downtown SD and the bay/airport area. Will definitely come back.

    Luis2015-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • This was my second stay in the upstairs apartment and it was just as great as the first time. Amazing views, very safe, comfortable bed, really nice area, very peaceful - love it! And Alice is always available if you need anything. All around great experience.

    Tracy2015-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • My daughter and I stayed 6 nights at Alice's lovely apt. in mid August. The apt. was very clean and spacious. The neighborhood was totally quiet. The view to the east was magnificent. Alice was there to greet us coming and going. A very nice lady. I would highly recommend a stay here. Rob

    We live in the East County area of San Diego, in the Casa De Oro area of Spring Valley. Our 4 bedroom home is in a nice neighborhood, great for larger families and groups with bedding for 8. We are within 20 minutes of all San Diego attractions.
    We have a 4 Bedroom 1648 square foot home that sleeps 8. We are in Spring Valley located in the East County area of San Diego just about 20 minutes away from all San Diego attractions including Sea World, beaches, downtown and the zoo, about 25 minutes to the Mexico border, and about 1.5 hours away from Disneyland. There is a grocery store, gas station and a few fast food/other stores less than a mile away. We are about 5 minutes to the nearest Trolley stop. The 4 bedrooms have the following bedding: trundle bed (twin size) in one room,, a 2nd twin trundle bed in 2nd bedroom, 2 twin size beds in 3rd bedroom, and a king size bed in the master bedroom.
    We love living here. It is a quiet neighborhood, yet freeway close, and there are grocery stores/department stores within 2 miles of the home.
  • The house was exactly as depicted in the pictures, in a very nice quiet neighborhood. It was amazing how close to the airport it was, and really convenient to the highway system for traveling around San Diego area. I was on a trip with my parents and my sister,there was more than enough room for everyone. The backyard was gorgeous and perfect for Lunching. Jodi was very prompt and attentive during the booking process, I did not need her during the stay because everything was already thought of. If ever in town again I would recommend staying there.

    Misty2015-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • The house was well equipped for our stay and overall comfortable. The mattress in the master bedroom was a bit firm for our taste but the other beds were fine. Jodi and her husband were very responsive to our needs-- we had a small issue with getting the thermostat set correctly and they were very kind and helpful in getting it set comfortably for us. The backyard patio was wonderful and my husband and I really enjoyed relaxing back there and watching the birds. We also appreciated the set of beach towels and blanket in the closet-- it was great when we took the kids to the beach. The location was also great, close to freeways and convenient. Overall great place.

    Sara2015-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Jodi was amazing at describing her place and had everything set out for us. Location is about 20 minutes away from many attractions. Quiet neighborhood and plenty of space.

    Karan2015-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Hosts were very welcoming. Excellent communication. Description of accomodations was accurate. Home was in a lovely neighborhood, was clean and well-maintained, and offered nice amenities. Location was convenient for taking in San Diego attractions. An excellent experience!

    Brian2015-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location!! It was my family's second time staying here and we will be back again!

    Misty2016-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • It was a very comfortable and quite stay. Loved how freeway was so close and the house had lots of space! The host always responded to me right away and kept me informed. I would definitely stay there again when I come to San Diego California.

    Kelle2017-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great house, just as advertised. We accidentally broke a pipe and they fixed it for us almost immediately and wouldn't even let us reimburse them. The location was very convenient for traveling to all the San Diego attractions. We had more than enough room for our family of 8. I would definitely recommend staying here!

    Will2016-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Jodi's home. Having this house while traveling for a family event (H.S. graduation) was perfect. My sister was busy with the graduation and preparing for the party after so we were not spending time at her home. My mother, 2 sisters, 2 brothers-in-law and a niece and nephew had lots of room and were able to relax while not being in the way at the graduate's house. The house was exactly as described. We utilized the gas grill and filled the fridge so we didn't have to go out to eat. The 2 living areas and the back patio made it very comfortable to have 8 people stay without tripping over one another. The beds were comfortable and we opened the windows at night to take advantage of cool nights. On the graduation night fter the party , my adult daughter & her boyfriend were able to stay on the pull-out couch so they didn't have to drive 3 hours home. Jodi made access easy and had instructions on the counter and other labels around the home for ease of use. The location was within an easy drive to the zoo, Old Town and the beach. The neighborhood was nice and kids were playing ball in the street. The one caution is that 3 of the rooms have twin beds, so I would not recommend this home for a couples get-away if romance is planned.

  • We've enjoyed our stay at the tiny home as a family of six! The home is clean! Yes, it is small, but it is very clean and it has everything! The view at night was so beautiful! We were able to see some fireworks on Labor day weekend from the living area window!! Jeremy is GREAT!! He responded my text promptly! When we needed something, he showed up within the next minute!!

    Nadia2017-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing view, amazing place. Everything was eco-friendly and spacious even for a tiny home. High quality trailers with 2 bunk beds, a kitchen, and a nice bathroom. We all LOVED the toilet, it was really cool. The best part about this tiny house was the view at night. All the beds were incredibly comfortable. We all really enjoyed our stay here. Would definitely book again!

  • This tiny house is wonderful! The view is amazing. Jeremy is an awesome host and made sure everything was ok for us. The house is so clean and has everything you would need. We have a family of 5 and it worked out nice. Only 10-15 min away from all the San Siego fun too. We would come back for sure :)

    Julie2017-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Superhost Jeremy and Kristi! One of my favorite Airbnb stays. Loved experience of a tiny house and would come back!

    Jenny2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Jeremy's tiny house is the best! This was our first experience in a tiny home, and I can say that you can comfortably and happily live in this space for your getaway, vacation or even business. The touches in this tiny house are amazing - when you're looking for a hook to hang your jacket on, or a light switch to be there for reading in the loft - there it is! A well thought out space with a beautiful view. Jeremy is a considerate host, goes above and beyond to ensure your comfort, and we happily recommend him and this property to others.

    Corrie & Tor2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • What a great find! The view was amazing, beds were super-comfy, the neighborhood was lovely, and the house was cute and perfectly appointed, including coffee. It was a short drive to Balboa Park and the beach, and we were delighted to stay away from the college kids and tourists. Highly recommend!!!

    Angie2017-10-08T00:00:00Z

    A lovely, luxurious and quiet retreat close enough to hop on a highway and be in the mix of San Diego things in less than 20 minutes (depending on traffic, of course) ;) Private bedroom with private bathroom (second bedroom and capacity for two more is available upon request), access to pool, plentiful parking, large kitchen and lounging areas. Close to plenty of restaurants and shopping. My home is yours!
    Have access to the action with the serenity and luxury of sweepings views, a refreshing pool, gourmet kitchen, and space galore with spacious bedrooms and over 3000 square feet of total living space. We are in a family area so no loud, late parties please. :)
  • Amy's place is very comfortable and serene. The view of sunset over the valley from the deck is beautiful. The room is a master suite with lots of space including a great shower and a big closet that we appreciated - we weren't traveling particularly light and its nice to have a place to put things out of the way. She was very accommodating about use of the rest of the house including the kitchen that walks out to the patio. We hope to stay there again!

    Janice2017-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great place and location

    Judy2017-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amy's place is an excellent choice for those looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. The pictures are accurate and you get a big room and bathroom to yourselves! Amy was very accommodating about letting us use the common spaces as well as any kitchen equipment and utensils. She responded quickly to our questions and requests, which helped us feel at home. I'd go back to Amy's place for my next visit to San Diego.

    Steve2017-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Such an amazing, beautiful house. The owner is amazing and so welcoming, felt like we were right at home. I would definitely stay here again.

    Darwin Dion2017-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful home this was ! My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed this spacious/clean home nestled high on the hill in a friendly, quiet neighborhood. Communication was excellent. The location perfect. A short drive to San Diego. We enjoyed ourselves swimming in the pool watching butterflies, hummingbirds and doves. I would highly recommend this home as a relaxing getaway. Thank you Amy, we found the perfect wedding dress on this trip. I would love to come back....

    Sharon2017-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • This stay was truly incredible! We enjoyed every second. My friend and I spend a lot of our time in San Diego just staying in the house, because it like a dream for us. Amy was amazing to make sure that we had everything and she even bought some food for us. In the morning we were offered the best coffee I ever had and we were allowed to use all utilities including the grill. The pool and the hot tub were perfect as well! Very nice stay. Thank you Amy.

    Christian2017-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Amy's place was so great! The room, bathroom, view, and house, were awesome. We were so busy during our stay I wish I had time to just hang out around the house because it was so great. Would highly recommend here!
