*SUPERHOST/HOUSE* The California Beach home decor home is nestled behind our home in the historic neighborhood of Sherman Heights; adjacent to downtown San Diego. While close to everything to see and do in SD, it offers a sense of retreat and privacy from the hustle of your busy day during your stay. It's good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. It is less than 1 mile from the Convention Center/Petco Park.

The space

The Cali Beach Home is a historic bungalow built in the early 1940's . Much of original charm has been preserved. The exterior is brightly colored in a traditional Mexican color palette and features plenty of outside space to enjoy San Diego living: propane grill, Jacuzzi hot spa to soak after a busy day, multiple decks, bistro tables and lounge chairs and umbrellas. You can either soak in the sun or enjoy the breeze under the Olive Trees or the canopy of Queen Palms surrounding the hot tub. We even have bikes that you can use during your stay to scurry around town; just let us know in advance so we can ensure we can reserve them for you and your guests and provide any proper maintenance before your arrival. San Diego weather permits outside living all year round and the Cali Home is spacious inside but also offers plenty of patio space to enjoy the perfect San Diego weather.

Guest access

You will have access to the entire house. We have owned our property for 14 years now and absolutely love living here. We live in the front house and there are 3 adorable cottages (casitas) behind our home around a central courtyard. The outside courtyard space is shared by all tenants so please be courteous and friendly. We also have a coin operated washer and dryer on the property in case you need it. The cottage has laundry soap and dryer sheets under the sink for your convenience.

Interaction with guests

My husband and I are happy to open up a bottle of wine and talk or provide suggestions on what to do while in San Diego. However, our interactions could be minimal if you prefer more independence as you explore this wonderful City! Either way I am very responsive through text for whatever questions may arise throughout your stay.

Other things to note

Please note that if you are staying throughout the week. There is street sweeping on the East Side of 25th Street between 8AM -10AM on Tuesdays and on the West Side of 25th Street between 8AM-10AM on Thursdays. There are signs posted along the street as well but as a courtesy I wanted to highlight it here to avoid you from getting a parking ticket if you park your vehicle along 25th street during your stay.

Fanastic place close to San Diego downtown and public transport. Great host who helped us out and was very friendly.... and we loved the little French Bulldog!

Response from Ildi & Rene:
Thanks for the great review: The San Diego Metro Trolley stops one block away from the rental and can take you directly into the Convention Center, Sea Port Village, Little Italy, Petco Park, Qualcomn Stadium, Old Town, Mission Valley and San Diego State University. Our friendly little French Bullldog, Caramelo, may either welcome you or wish you safe travels from our bay window as you walk by. :)

We had a great stay! Felt so comfortable, a home away from home. Loved that it was so clean, had extra touches like spices to cook with, so close to public transport, the jacuzzi was amazing and the communication was great! Thank you so much for the fantastic accommodation and the lovely Welcome! We would love to stay again next time we are in San Diego. Cheers from a couple of Kiwi

Located close to downtown, so it's easy access to the Gaslamp area which has many shops and restaurants to explore, as well as being close to Petco Park and the convention center. Very comfort home, well decorated, and welcoming with everything you need. Ildi and Rene were quick to respond and easy to work with. Very good hosts.

You will not find easier owners to work with. It was a pleasure staying here. Parking was a bit difficult, but other than that this will be a trip to remember. The location was close to everything we wanted to do, visit to the midway which was astounding, Segway tour to balboa park which was exhilarating , a visit to the Mormon temple and visitors center which was a highlight of the trip, the high tech presentation was equal in quality to Disneyland, a biplane ride and a day at Seaworld. We had a seminar at the Hilton, ate in the gas lamp district and spent time at the beachfront village as well as going on a sunset sail on the ocean. The startling thing was that Everything was only 15 minutes from our bungalow. Walmart was 3 blocks away and there is a great mexican restaurant across the street.

Ildi & Rene have created a great place to stay at a price that is very reasonable. The premises are clean and well maintained and Ildi & Rene are very responsive to their guests' needs. The neighborhood feels safe (there is a police station down the block) and considering it's in the middle of a bustling city it's pretty quiet most of the time. We hope to stay here on our next trip to San Diego.

LOCATION: the neighborhood is probably the biggest knock against this airbnb. when we were driving around, the neighborhood felt semi-unsafe and there was a significant amount of homeless people around. coincidentally, we also saw several police officers investigating one of the neighbors at arrival (there is a local police station located within walking distance). the apt itself is located in a complex of 4 total properties that is "gated" (w/o a lock to the front gate). 3/5 AIRBNB: the airbnb itself was clean and tidy upon arrival. there was only one window AC and a fan but this was usually enough in the temperate San Diego weather. amenities listed were provided. The couch bed was a bit uncomfortable and the bathroom lacked a vent. 4/5 HOST: Ildi/Rene were terrific hosts. Very responsive and eager to help. Brought over amenities promptly when requested. They also were able to get us a deal for a sunset harbor tour through (URL HIDDEN) that we highly recommend!! Use code "airbnb" or "25" for 25% off. 5/5

Response from Ildi & Rene:
Daniel... it sounds like Airbnb was probably not the best choice for you and your family because to live like the locals you really do need to accept the realities of living in an urban setting or pay the difference to stay at a 5 star hotel resort. I feel very safe and am very proud of my neighborhood. I love waking up to the smell of freshly made tortillas from the Tortilla factory across the street or walking around the corner to freshly baked Mexican bread from the local bakery. The police station that is only one block has truly helped to transform this community into being vibrant and walkable. And the reality is that living in San Diego, we accept the homeless throughout our community, throughout downtown, throughout the beach communities and yes... throughout the City. You see when you have perfect weather people from all over the Country can relocate here and live outdoors. As a City we demonstrate compassion and do not criminalize our homeless communities as being unsheltered is not a crime here.
