This is your relaxing, quiet oasis when you are visiting San Diego. With three bedrooms, 2 baths and plenty of space inside and out your hardest decision will be whether to go out or stay in. The location is perfect, near everything, including freeway access yet in a quiet, residential area, across the street from a nature preserve. You can hike in the canyon or just sit and enjoy the ocean view. A shopping plaza with stores, restaurants and yoga studio is in walking distance.
This is a quiet, single level house with three bedrooms and two full baths. It has a large garden, both in the front and in the back. Across the street is the access to a nature preserve/canyon with hiking trails and plenty of wildlife.
There are beds for up to 6 people and two large and comfy sofas.
A modern kitchen and large dining area with ocean view make this a great place to entertain visitors. There is also a grill and table with room for 8 in the back yard.
The house has a laundry room with washer and dryer for guest use.
Like most homes in this area, the house does not have air conditioning. We are less than a mile from the ocean, at the top of a hill so we get cool ocean breezes almost every night and the area is safe enough to leave windows open at night. There are ceiling fans in all bedrooms and box fans to speed up the air exchange. But if you are used to constant air condition and/or don't feel comfortable having the windows open, this house may not be for you.
The price includes San Diego County Transient Occupancy Tax of 11.05%.
You will have access to the entire house and garden with the exception of the garage that is being used as storage for the owner.
There is room for two cars in the driveway and street parking is always available.
I manage the house and live just a 15 minutes away should you need help.
I'd be happy to help you plan excursions and give you tips for local attractions and restaurants. Just ask.
This is a residential area so expect to see children playing on the street and people walking.
Absolutely no smoking in and around this house! This includes e-cigarettes, vaporizers, cigars, pipes, etc.. If you absolutely have to smoke, you will need to go across the street. No exceptions!
Since this is a residential area and the owner also stays here from time to time, please treat the house and neighborhood like it was your own.
No loud parties, no street racing etc..
No pets allowed.
If you would like to host guests overnight, please check with me first. I can make a futon available, there is a queen size air bed and the sofas are big and comfy in a pinch.
I'm a research scientist at the Salk Institute in La Jolla. My wife and I moved here from Germany in 1999 and took roots in this fantastic corner of the planet. I have two daughters who were both born here and we live in Encinitas.
I am relatively new to AirBnB and have used it for business trips twice as a guest with great success. I take care of the home of a colleague and have started listing it here. My goal is to treat you just the way I would like to be treated and make your visit to San Diego as pleasant as possible.
