Self check-in with keypad

Standard check-in time is 3 PM and check-out is 11 AM. We thank you for not smoking (this includes the common areas outside of the home such as courtyard, backyard, etc.) and not bringing any pets onto the premises.

Please ensure that the total number of guests you specify in your booking is accurate, including all infants and babies of all ages, and let us know if that changes. We will only accommodate those guests specified and no more above and beyond that number, especially due to municipal codes regarding occupancy.

There are other guests staying in different rental units next door and on the floor below so we thank you for your consideration with regard to noise (e.g., heavy footsteps, etc.). Plus, due to the residential nature of our neighborhood and out of respect for our neighbors, we have a strict policy against large social gatherings or any other loud/disruptive activities, especially after 9pm.

Our property manager lives nearby and he’s had to ask guests to leave in the past for throwing parties.

There is one dedicated parking spot for this unit, so please review the House Manual for details on where it is. All other spots are reserved and may be towed by the other tenants so please be sure to park only in the designated spaces.

The space is listed as infant-friendly because we've gotten a lot of requests from families with infants who want to stay with us. We'd be happy to host those groups, but unfortunately, we do not have cribs or pack and plays or any bedding of that nature available for use, so please bear that in mind if it is a requirement for you.

We strive to ensure that all of our guests have the best experience staying with us but we understand that accidents may happen. If, during your stay, anything accidentally breaks (e.g., a wine glass, photo frame, vase, etc.), please let us know right away so we can be sure to properly deep clean it after your departure. This is primarily for the safety of the next guest who will arrive after you and we generally won't charge you any amount of the security deposit for small items or decor, so please don't hesitate to let us know. We really appreciate it!

We spent a weekend in San Diego. The apartment is in a great neighborhood with easy access to local stores and most things are no more than 15 min away with Uber. The apartment is big and clean with comfortable beds. We did not spend much time there since San Diego have so much to offer including fantastic weather. We would definitely love to come back!

Our group of 5 adults and 3 kids only stayed one night but we wished we could have stayed longer to explore the neighborhood and check out some of the local suggestions in Jeff's guest book. The apartment was perfect for us and even had one more bedroom/office (with a single bed) than we were expecting. There are lots of helpful hints posted around the home and little details that made us feel very welcome. The apartment is very clean and well decorated. We hope to come back sometime!

We just stayed at Jeff's airbnb for a girl's weekend and it exceeded our expectations! We had women come out from all over the US and each person was truly impressed. Aside from his professionalism and respectfulness, he was very reliable in terms of communication and he was accommodating to all of our requests. The apartment was perfect for us and it was so uniquely designed. Side note- the beds were SO comfortable and it truly felt like a home away from home. Thank you Jeff for a wonderful experience and top-notch hospitality!

This tastefully decorated apartment is spacious, clean, quiet and beautiful. This house is very close to the international airport, all of downtown's major attractions & restaurants. All must-see destinations are a short walk/ride away. The home is located on the second floor. A lot of care and thought has been invested to making this house a home. The team had welcome gifts for us as we entered the apartment. My 4 year old was overjoyed & ran through all bedrooms collecting all the chocolates from the beds the night we arrived. Cute little photo-framed instructions greeted us throughout the apartment & kept us informed about the do's & don'ts, wi-fi username & password, USB ports for charging mobile phones and how to dispose garbage in the kitchen. (We could not locate the garbage disposal switch) we watched our favorite Netflix shows on the TV. Check out the comprehensive coffee table guide to local restaurants & attractions compiled by the management team while you are there. It can prove to be very useful. This home makes for a perfect space to relax and unwind with it's pleasing colors palette & greenery. It makes one feel like there are living in a home away from home. Jeff is a gracious host. He answered our queries & concerns promptly. On the very first night we landed in San Diego, the air conditioning in the apartment behaved rather oddly. Jeff apologized profusely & attempted to fix it. When nothing worked, he visited us first thing next morning & got it fixed for us with the help of his handy man. When we met him in person, he had the most interesting tales for us about the sights & experiences he enjoyed in San Diego over the years -- thereby he helped us plan our holiday. I highly recommend Jeff's Airbnb accommodation if you are looking for a place to stay to relax or take in the sights of the very picturesque San Diego. Don't think twice. Go for it & all of us in our home hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did if not more.

Our group of four found this place very comfortable, clean, and charming. The location was perfect: short walking distance to the Hillcrest bars and restaurants, and close enough to Balboa Park for good running. We recommend it!

I've been lucky enough to travel everywhere from the depths of the gorgeous Tuscan countryside in Italy to the exotic coasts of Thailand to some of the busiest metropolitan areas including New York City, London, Tokyo, and Sydney. But I'm always ready for more!

And as an interior designer, I can't help but absorb all of the wonderful culture, art, and beauty that my travel adventures bring.

Yet, wherever I go, I always think to myself 'I can't wait to get home' when I'm on that plane ride back. This is why I call sunny San Diego my home. I hope you will enjoy it too while you are here.
