Hello Friends! Feel free to use instant book or message me for questions!

The space

Conveniently located in the College Area and only a 15 minute walk to SDSU. Great for students, exchange students, or family visiting SDSU students. The diverse urban neighborhood, City Heights, is just a stone's throw away with the best asian and mexican food you can find.

Clean and comfortable room with a full size bed and desk.
The room can accommodate a maximum of 2 guests.
Bed will have clean linen, pillows, and comforter.
You have your own bathroom right outside of your bedroom.

The condo is 2 bed/2 bath, neat and clean with basic kitchen and dining table.
You will be staying in the bedroom and my mother will be staying in the master bedroom. She spends most of her time either in the kitchen, the living room, or the bedroom.

Guest access

Guests are free to hang out at the common area, have meals on the dining table, and cook in the kitchen (fyi: the kitchen has a lot of Chinese cookware and spices)

Amenities that are included:
• Hand soap, towels, and linens
• Secure WiFi
• Personal mini fridge
• Personal microwave
• A set of house keys ($50 if you lose keys)
• Access to washer and dryer for one-time use (ask Ms. Chou for assistance)
• Perfect for short term stays, SDSU students, exchange students, short-term relocation, family visiting students, etc.

Interaction with guests

You will be staying with my mom, Teresa (Ms. Chou). She is retired, easy going and very friendly. She stays at home for the majority of the time and will occasionally leave to run errands. If privacy is your thing, that is no problem at all. She'll be around if you need help operating the washer/dryer or using the kitchen or have any questions.

Other things to note

***There is one small cat, one small dog, and a turtle in the condo. Please do not book if you have cat allergies. Louie (maltese/shitzu) will welcome you with open paws and is very friendly. Biggie (the cat) stays to herself and doesn't interact much, and the turtle hangs out in his aquarium.

I had a wonderful experience staying at Ms. Chou's home. She was so friendly and welcoming, and even had snacks and drinks in the the room for guests. I plan to stay here again during my next visit to San Diego. I highly recommend this air B and B. Ms Chou did a great job recommending places to see and visit during my stay.

Cynthia is lovely and a great asset. We attended Comic Con, which is 20 mins by car, but with uber it's totally affordable and convenient. We had a great time there.

I spent 6 nights and i am so glad i choose that place. This is the best place i could ever ask for! Just book and stay; dont even think about it! :) This is a great place for any type of travellers. Here are some points why i liked the place so much and would stay here if i go there again 1. The location is very safe convenient; close to airport (15 min drive) and close to San Diego's main attractions (15-20 min drive). (I had a car, so honestly i can't say anything about how convenient the public transportation is but if you have a car, it is a perfect location) 2. Walmart, restaurants, Starbucks are all 5 min drive. 3. The room is like a hotel room (even better); there is a coffee machine, refrigerator, and a microwave. 4. She provides teabags, coffee capsules for the machine, energy bars, snacks, paper cups, etc. and replenishes them every day. You also have bottles of water, and some other beverages in the refrigerator which she replenishes everyday as well. (Even better than a hotel :) ) 5. The bathroom is just for the guest, you do not have to share it with other people or with the host, it is just yours. (She provides, various kinds of shampoos as well) 6. The apartment has a covered garage for two cars, and she is kind enough to share it with me. So, you don't have to worry about your car. 7. She is so nice, like a mom, not bossy at all, she does everything possible to help you feel at home. As it is already posted; she has a pet, if you have any issue with this that might be the only consideration, but the dog is the most friendly pet ever. He is really really cute :) Overall, you will like the room so much and the host is a really very nice and kind lady. Thank you for helping me to feel like it is my home!

Our stay with Mrs. Chou was great! Communication with both her and Cynthia was easy. We ended up getting to the house a little later than we thought, but Mrs. Chou was very accommodating. She and her dog Louie were super friendly! The room was great with nice amenities and a comfortable bed. We would definitely stay here again!

Very clean even by my very high/picky standards. My daughter is extremely allergic to cats but had very minimal reaction because it was very clean. You get your own private bathroom and The room has a keurig with a variety of coffee and teas, plus chips, granola bars, breakfast bars, and a stocked mini fridge! The only downside was the lack of air conditioning and I happened to be there during high temps. I still give this place 5 stars because of the wonderful customer service and that I would stay here again.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay with Mrs Chou. Wish I could've stayed longer! The room was perfect, very clean, the bed and pillows were comfy! There is a small fridge and coffee machine too, that's very convenient. You get your own bathroom that's also very clean. Mrs Chou is an amazing host, she drove me around local stores with cheap and affordable prices - We don't have too many stores like them in Australia! She also treated me to In-N-Out burger! It was the first time I've had it and it was delicious! Louie was a treat, so adorable and kept me good company. Highly recommend!

Hi there! I'm Cynthia and I am helping my retired mother share her extra bedroom in San Diego. Recently, I moved to LA to work for Airbnb as a Community Organizer. My mom's name is Teresa (Mrs. Chou) and she is a retired Chinese American woman, originally from Hong Kong, but we've been calling San Diego our home. I love to travel and my mom loves meeting new people. My dog, Louie, and my cat, Biggie still stay with my mom so you'll have an opportunity to meet the gang! She loves to watch Asian Dramas and I love to catch a good sitcom. We both love to eat Dim Sum and Pho and can show you all the perfect spots!
