Are you sitting down? This is will be a long one, but a good one. I promise. (Disclaimer: I'm a writer... :)
Welcome to San Diego! I live in the same building, but in a separate, private residence. I've been president of our HOA for 2+ years and have 12 years in rental property management. Furthermore, for three years, I was a residential advisor in college and was trained on a variety of housing-related matters. You've come to the right place as long as you can communicate your preferences and tell me what I can do to make you a happy guest.
North Park (shared with University Heights) is one of San Diego's most popular and walkable neighborhoods. In fact, it was ranked #13 "best hipster neighborhood" according to Forbes magazine.
PLEASE NOTE: Please send me a message before requesting a reservation. I have a few questions for you and would like to figure out which apartment is best given your timeframe. Thanks!
I manage two (2), 2Bd/2Ba condos (apartments) which offer either private rooms in a shared apartment or completely private condos, so drop me a line before sending a request, since I’ve got six listings and six calendars that don’t automatically update each other).
By the way, just so you know, deposits aren't ever actually withheld from guests' credit cards:
SECURITY DEPOSIT INFO
New Policy - "Airbnb recently changed the way security deposit charges are handled. When a reservation is accepted, the security deposit details and guest's payment information is stored. No charges or authorizations will be made to the guest's payment method unless the host needs to make a claim."
