Walking distance to the popular "Village" of La Mesa...lovely shops, diverse restaurants and close to the trolley.

Step into my wonderful light, bright and airy home. Perfect place to relax and "get away," (even for locals.)

Great for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers and is an Ideal Corporate Retreat.

Close to SDSU, beaches, downtown San Diego and Convention Center, Qualcom (Chargers Football), Grocery, Theaters, Shopping and for those inclined; three casinos in the county.

The space

Almost 1000 sq. ft. of relaxing comfort. You will be drawn to the wonderful outside for a relaxing meal or cocktail with the 180 degree view. The Village, with numerous shops and restaurants is within walking distance. A Von's Grocery is 2 blocks away. The Airport is approximately 12 miles away, Beaches are 11 miles away, Downtown San Diego is 11 miles away, (Trolley access is fun), SDSU is only 2 miles away. This central location is ideal for those wanting the comforts of home but the access to "FUN," close by. Known as a "bedroom community," the homes are close but the walking possibilities are endless and also include the "Windsor Stairs" which go all through the neighborhood. Neighbors are friendly and family oriented. Some people call the kitchen a little retro...I purposely left it that way because of the character of the custom house from 1959. High drainboards, real wood cabinets, and even a 1959 stove that has hardly been used. I did change out the stove top a couple of years ago, so that is new. And, there is a microwave, coffee pot and refer. I also prefer to provide snacks for those weary travelers: a little soup, crackers, chips, cereal, fresh fruit, cookies, chocolate, water, sodas, juices,milk and a little wine, beer and a few individual booze bottles. All to make your stay as pleasant and relaxing as possible. You also can receive the daily San Diego Union Tribune from me upon request. I always have a guest subscription.

Guest access

This is a duplex. We live on the top level, your access would be private, down a few stairs. You will be able to park in my shared carport. Otherwise, if you have guests visiting, they will have to park in the street.

Two guests for King size bed and if you have 2 guests they will be in the living room on airbeds.

Interaction with guests

Privacy is the key here. Since I am just upstairs, if there is anything you need or anything I could do for you, just tweet or telephone. There are also some options available prior to your arrival. Should you desire advance food supplies, you can go online to the LaMesa "Vons," place your order, pay for the goods and authorize for me to pick the items up for you.

Other things to note

Being so close to sporting events, we often book during the seasons. With trolley access so close, attendance is easy whether downtown at the convention center and restaurants, or theaters or Qualcomm.

This location was perfectly located within distance of all the great things in San Diego. The neighborhood was peaceful and quiet and everybody was very friendly. We had a beautiful view from our deck which was wonderful for sipping our coffee in the morning and having cocktails at night. Bronte also provided lots of snacks and even homemade chocolate chip cookies. We will definitely be back!

Loved our stay! The view from the patio is beautiful. Hubby and I had breakfast out there almost every morning. It's gorgeous at night too. We felt very safe in the neighborhood. It's a quiet and quaint area. Close to everything and easy access to highways. Lots of space, comfortable couch and large TV. Cute kitchen with all the essentials. The refrigerator was stocked with plenty of groceries, we were pleasantly surprised. :) Bronte is super nice and even gave us a banana cream pie and rotisserie chicken! Loved everything about our stay. Thank you Bronte! :)

The very first thing that stood out to us about this AirBnB was the cleanliness and overall relaxing ambiance of the room. It's spacious, well-lit, well-kept, and has an excellent view of the city below and the mountains (we even had our breakfast on the porch). Our host was extremely nice & very understanding about us being late to our check-in having been stuck in unanticipated traffic. Check-in was smooth & she left clear instructions so there was no confusion. The location itself is around many restaurants & things to do, quiet neighborhood, and great for morning walks or exercise. The well-stocked fridge was delightful, with many beverages & snacks to choose from! This has been the best AirBnB experience as of yet, thank you Brontë!

We had a wonderful stay at Brontë's place! The apartment was beautifully decorated, had an awesome view on the deck/balcony, and had all the necessities we needed for our almost week long start. The location is closer to the tram/bus system, so even without a car we were able to efficiently get around places. Brontë was a very gracious host to us, communicated promptly throughout our stay and made much appreciated accommodations. We were extremely thankful that the kitchen was well stocked with food/snacks that we were welcomed to enjoy; this really made our trip much easier since we didn't have to worry about shopping around for food or eating out every time we got hungry. Overall we were extremely satisfied with our stay and will highly consider staying here again if it's available on a potential future trip to the area.

Hands down, the best Airbnb in which I've stayed. Immaculate, breathtaking views, luxury decor, and better-stocked than home! This is an all-star apartment with an MVP host. Bronte was responsive and as accessible as we wanted/needed to be. She's a real gem. If you are visiting the San Diego area, this is a great location. I highly recommend.
