We absolutely loved this place! It was our first time in San Diego and our first time using Airbnb, and it went very well! Michelle and Ryder were extremely accommodating and super friendly. They were always very easy to get in touch with so that was a big plus. The place was perfectly located, safe, and beautiful inside, not to mention it was very well equipped. Also, the bikes were great to have as we had some lovely bike rides to La Jolla and nearby areas. I have no complaints and would really recommend staying in this lovely place of Michelle and Ryder's if you plan to visit San Diego. We loved the city and loved this place, definitely somewhere we would go back to :)
Thank you guys for everything. You have (email hidden) to enjoy PB life. I am sure i'll come back.
The studio is 3 blocks from the beach and nicely located between Mission Beach & LaJolla. We enjoyed the bikes & boards. The studio is small but that was expected from all the reviews. I recommend this location for 1 or 2 people if you are planning to be at the beach or out and about often. It was perfect for our stay & we enjoyed the hammock.
My girlfriend and I were enticed by the pictures and proximity to the beach, only to be pleasantly surprised by the place, and surrounding area, to be even more charming than anticipated. I can only hope my future Airbnb experiences will be as enjoyable.
Michelle and Ryder were punctual in responding to our correspondence and were more than helpful in accommodating one special request.
I usually don't like to stay at the same place twice, but if I were going back to San Diego, I would be hard pressed not to come back this little gem. Truly satisfied.
My stay at Michelle and Ryder's studio was absolutely delightful! The studio in itself is perfect, you have everything you need to have a wonderful time there. And the courtyard is lovely, ideal if you want to have a quiet night "at home" (I loved the hammock). The area is really calm and Pacific Beach is a 5 minutes walk away (Beach, restaurants, shops). I wish I could have stayed there more than a weekend! Last but not least, Michelle and Ryder were perfect hosts, they always answered promptly whenever we had a question or needed something. If I were to come back in SD, I already know where I'll stay!
I stopped in San Diego for two nights and this was the perfect place to stay. Just two blocks from the beach and boardwalk, with bikes at your disposal. The place was clean and well kept, with everything I needed. I didn't really use the kitchen but it seemed to have the necessary components if I wanted to cook. Perfect space for a solo traveler or two people who don't mind (email hidden). I would definitely stay there again.
We couldn't have been happier staying at Michelle & Ryder's place! It was as stunning as the beach that is a hop, skip, and a jump away. They were so very nice and communicative, it was an absolute dream. Highly recommend, and thanks again!!
It was like paradise there. Looking forward to coming back!
This was our first visit to Pacific Beach and the San Diego area. Michelle and Ryder's rental appears to be one of the older homes in this neighborhood but is clean and plenty of space for two. The bed is queen size, firm yet comfortable. Clean towels are provided, replaced upon request. We had to request washcloths as they were not provided by default. Access to the beach and several good restaurants (Isabel's Cantina for breakfast was a favorite) is an easy walk. The home has heat but no air conditioning. We had mild temperatures (which seems to be the norm) during our stay and the many windows, fans and a good sea breeze kept this 2nd floor space comfortable. Note the windows have no screens, but we had no problems with (email hidden) is provided in the living room that can be used with a music player or smart phone. Wifi internet access was not fast but worked reliably. Our ATT iPhone connected LTE. Our Verizon iPhone connection was mostly 3G. PB is popular, so parking was sometimes difficult when we returned in the evening but we were always found a spot within a block. The neighborhood appears safe and was mostly quiet at night (important with open windows). Any questions or messages we had for Michelle and Ryder received a prompt reply. Overall, our stay was better than we expected and enthusiastically can recommend it to others looking for a PB rental in a great location at a very reasonable rate.
Our five-day stay at Ryder and Michelle's studio will never be forgotten! In fact, as our first foray into the world of Air BnB, it might be hard for any other future accommodations/hosts to measure up! The studio itself was exactly what we were looking for....small, ever-so-comfortable, economical, and welcoming. We really felt like we were returning to our own personal sanctuary at the end of each day. The outdoor patio feels like an extension of the studio itself.....so much so that despite the studio's small dimensions it never felt crowded or restrictive. Rather, we threw open the doors, left the windows open, and sort of extended our space outside- this of course lead to breakfast on the patio, newspaper reading on the patio, coffee on the patio, etc.! All of the amenities we needed were at our fingertips- beach towels, coolers, and chairs (check!), Bikes to ride all over town (check!), coffee maker with coffee (double check!). We made full use of the small fridge and stovetop/oven. Bed was ultra-comfy. Also the studio was immaculately clean, simply yet lovingly decorated, and jut the right size for two people. Ryder and Michelle were consistently available to answer questions and provide eating and sight-seeing insights. They were gracious hosts who clearly wanted to give us our space as we needed it but were likewise easy to talk to, kind, generous, and "at-our-service" as well. Great location to the beach- easy two block walk, tons of restaurants/eateries with in walking distance. We extend a hearty thank you to both Ryder and Michelle for providing a haven for us in Pacific Beach, filling our heads with dreams of future trips to California, and for being the beautiful inspirational people they are!
Michelle & Ryder are great guest that are very conscientious towards others and the space they are in. We would be happy to welcome them back anytime and hope to visit their airbnb sometime too.
These two were wonderful guests. I'd have them back any time!
I befriended Michelle in college over a decade ago. Throughout the years we have deepened our friendship to the point that I trust her 100000%!!! I have witnessed many chapters of her life's journey, and through it all can earnestly say that she lives with great integrity, and has consistently enhanced her dwellings/environments with a unique sense of style and beauty. Michelle has always welcomed me warmly into her home and treated me like a queen!! I love this woman and definitely recommend her as a host.
