This apartment is the coolest one I've stayed at through AirBnB thus far. Its modern decor is exactly the style I like. It is conveniently located near the freeway and is walking distance to lots of shops/restaurants in the trendy Hillcrest area.
It was slightly difficult to find street parking right outside at nights. I had better luck going 1-2 blocks north pass University Ave, which is not too far. Climbing up and down the ladder to the bed was a new experience - I got a slight work out every time!
Overall, my wife and I really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again. An extra bonus is that it has air conditioning to keep you cool from the hot San Diego summer temperatures!
I had a wonderful stay at Jim's place. He was very friendly and made sure to bring me water for the weekend. It was clean, well kept, had nice speakers to play some background music. Considering how busy the weekend was in San Diego and the prime location it was very quiet. The street parking was tricky but there was a festival going on so it's understandable ! I did some laundry, cooked some food, listened to music. It's a very relaxing loft, I highly recommend this to anyone ! Thanks Jim !
My partner and I had a wonderful stay here. Conveniently located, within walking distance of things in Hillcrest, and within biking distance of most places of interest in the city. The loft was comfortable and quiet and with no major surprises. It does get warm (we went in July), but the air conditioning works very well. I would recommend it to all, with the only proviso being that you need to be able to climb a ladder into bed and be okay with having to crouch (ie, not stand up straight) in the lofted bedroom. Overall, a terrific home base for your stay in San Diego.
The stay at Jim's place went very well. i liked the flat a lot, well equipped, quiet and clean. the comfortable bed is on a mezzanine, the ladder is quite steep.was ok for me though. Jim seems to be a very flexible and nice person.
Perfect location and apartment! Jim was a great host!
Jim is a very friendly and reliable person. Whenever we had any questions while staying at his flat, he answered swiftly. His flat is beautiful, with everything you need and in one of the best and most relaxed areas of San Diego. The only downside is the ladder that you need to climb to get to the sleeping area in the room. The street is very quiet and we always found a parking slot for our car.
We had a great stay at Jim's place. Just be aware of the very vertical ladder to access the bed. Apart from that, it was full light, clean and with everything that we could need.
I loved staying at Jim's place this past May. The location was fantastic (just blocks from an incredible farmers' market and street fair on Saturdays, an easy walk from Sprouts grocery store and Balboa Park, a little jaunt from all the bars, shops, restaurants and hullaballo of Hillcrest, and a doable hike to neighborhoods as fun and varied as Normal Heights and Kensington). The space itself was great - we used the blow-up mattress instead of the loft (and Jim was wonderful in setting it all up before we arrived), and especially loved the outdoor balcony space for morning coffee. The couch was big enough to sleep on, the A/C was formidable, and the bottled water was a nice touch. Jim could not have been more respectful and accommodating. I have no hesitation in recommending this place as any vacationer's home base. Thanks, Jim!
Jim's apartment was such a great experience! We loved the setup of the apartment and a really great time staying there. We arrived much later than we were expecting but Jim was so kind and gracious with our arrival. It was a great neighborhood to walk around in, and parking was super easy. Everything is pretty much there, and we had a great time cooking meals in this apartment. There is a super convenient bus stop (the 7) about a block away which took us directly to Balboa Park.
Overall, a great, comfortable apartment in a fantastic location. Great for relaxing and unwinding. Highly, highly recommended!
Located in a quiet area of San Diego just minutes from Dowton, University Avenue, Jim has provided us a very nice apartment with bright.
We had a pleasant stay
What can I say about Jim?! I worked with Jim for a time, and I have to say I would have dumped the firm we were working at, had it not been for my lunch buddy Jim. Jim is a really outgoing and even tempered guy. He laughs a lot, and always makes you feel like your his best friend. As a legal professional, and a professional yoga instructor, Jim is outgoing and very interesting; I don't think I have ever seen him not in motion. Jim's domicile is amazing! The building is amazing, his flat is amazing and his style is tops. I love love love his place! Jim will not only make a great airbnb guest, but an amazing airbnb host. If you want the best San Diego experience, splurge and stay with/at Jim's!
