Interaction with guests

Manager and housekeeper are often at the residence, but are always available by way of messaging through AirBnB. I know you'll enjoy Elda's hospitality and our host Matt to respond to any needs you have once you check in. You might even meet interesting travelers from all over the world who might be staying in another room in this estate.

Other things to note

Many of San Diego's finest restaurants are just over one mile from the house, so you will probably be tempted to eat out in Little Italy, but again, the stunning views and ambiance of this exclusive canyon retreat will make dining outside at the residence as good and romantic as it gets at any restaurant! Please note that we do not serve coffee, food or any beverage here. It is not legal for us to do this so we do want to remind guests that this is for room only. Fortunately, we are very close to one of the most unique urban neighborhoods in all the country: Little Italy of San Diego. You will find dozens of coffee shops and terrific restaurants here, which is about 1.5 miles.

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Check in is anytime after 4PM

We live a quiet life with no excessive habits. There is no smoking anywhere on the property. For the safety and courtesy to all guests staying here, the house becomes a "Quiet Zone" at 9:00 pm at night, but feel free to come and go at any hour! It is imperative that nobody be out on the balcony or back yard areas after 9:00 pm as our neighbors will hear everything. There are no parties allowed on the property. Guests are not allowed to bring other guests into the house that are not registered through AirBnB. All guests must show common courtesies and respect for the quiet property experience I create for all guests. We are very serious about our no smoking policy. If a guest breaks this rule, a $500 clean up fine will be placed on their account and they may be asked to leave. There is no photography or video taking of any kind allowed on the property.

All communications must go through the AirBnB app or web page. Unknown numbers that come into my phone by voice or text are not answered or responded to, but through the AirBnB systems, you'll be lucky to count to 10 before you get a response :)

Excellent place to lay your head for a night or a week. Quit and easy access to/from the airport via car. I didn't meet Sam but I was o ly in for one night and he was very responsive. It's a pretty cool house too with the biggest tv I've ever seen.

Expect the very basic of everything. It's a very fancy house that is run like a youth hostel. People come and go. Every room is filled with people. You cannot lock your individual door when you leave for the day.
Sam User ProfileSam is a superhost.
Response from Sam:
Now that's some youth hostel! LOL Maybe the pricing is more like a youth hostel, but believe me, in this neighborhood, with the famous and politically powerful neighbors we have, this place is run with the utmost seriousness and attention to detail. We had someone once lovingly describe this as "Casa de Versace", but I've never heard "basic" before. Paula is quite accurate however as it is true, people come and go. She is also correct, we run a 98% occupancy, so all rooms are filled and they are filled with people (1 to 2 per room). You CAN lock your door from inside and there is adequate security (not to mention an AirBnB $(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) insurance policy) so that all who stay here are safe and secure in what is likely San Diego's safest neighborhood. Hopefully Paula can work on being a better guest at AirBnB's so that the hosts can rate her better than the 3 stars on her profile. We are working hard ourselves to make our 4.8 star average to be a 5 star average. Right now 88% of our guests give us a 5 star rating and even though that puts us at the very top of AirBnB's in the nation, we're striving for 100%.

Amazing choice for our one night in SD. It's a few minutes drive to all the places you'll want to visit on your stay. I was pleased to see how easy check-in was, as we didn't need to interact with the host and it kept us from having to be on a timetable. The room was just as the pictures show, and I'll definitely look into booking this room again on my next visit to SD.

This place was great! Big mansion with rooms rented out to many people the nights we stayed. We saw them in the public areas only in the evenings but for the most part it felt like we had the place to ourselves. Beautiful private bathroom and comfortable bed. The futon in the room we stayed in was surprisingly comfortable for our friends to sleep on as well. Great response time. Couldn't have been more pleasant. It is close enough to most tourist things to be within a 15 minute drive.

Very clean and easy to get to from the airport. So far it's the best Airbnb I've stayed at.

A wonderful respite from the bustle of downtown San Diego. The home is so close to everything, it was an easy and inexpensive ride right into the Gaslamp. I came to visit San Diego for Comic Con with my sister, so this was a beautiful and peaceful getaway from the madness. Matt's communication and directions were timely, helpful and to the letter. And the home is as beautiful and comfortable as the photos show. Definitely bookmarking this one for the future. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!
