My Aunt visited me from Germany and said that my house is ALIVE. I asked what she meant and she said that you can hear birds outside all bedroom windows, the bells in Balboa Park, 'faintly' hear the planes gliding in, distant horns from the trolley, train and cruise ships with fireworks popping at night. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my home and excited to share it with you in creating your San Diego memories.

It's hard to imagine a better host than Stefan. We booked with him after another host attempted to charge us more money out of the blue. This was disappointing as we were travelling from the UK to get married and then attend comic con for our honeymoon. Stefan however came to the rescue making suggestions for suitable accommodation for us and my now mother-in-law. This particular property was booked for my mother-in-law and it was stunning. It was in Stefan's house, however it felt like a small private flat. It was beautifully furnished and offered everything one would need. What really separated this from other accommodations though was Stefan himself. He was so helpful, often giving lifts and always being helpful and friendly in every interaction. I'm sure we will come back to San Diego and we will without doubt rent from Stefan again.

It only took one night staying here for me to decide to stay for a month and a half! Stefan and Austin are super amazing guys with such great energy. And that goes for the other guys in the house too. I am having a wonderful stay in the bedroom with the adjacent loft. It’s great to have my own little space where I can concentrate on the work I need to do while visiting lovely San Diego. The loft space is a great area to relax in and has room available for you to do some yoga. The bedroom is beautifully decorated (like the rest of the house) and has one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on!! The neighborhood is great and really safe to walk around at night alone. You're walking distance to Little Italy, downtown, Bankers Hill, Balboa Park, I even walk to Hillcrest, and the Trolley is very close by as well. I’m so happy that I’ve decided to stay here longer, and I’ll definitely stay here again in the future. I wholeheartedly recommend you stay here.

Moving from the bay area to San Diego was going to be a challenge for me since it was a last minute decision and I had no place to stay. Plus, I had to start work ASAP of course. Luckily, I found Stefan’s place to be a perfect fit and he responded immediately with a phone call to get me familiarized. Stefan even offered to pick me up from the airport (a gesture I found very rare by Airbnb hosts). When I arrived, he was there waiting for me. I threw my bags in and we drove to the house from the airport which is literally 5mins. The place is absolutely beautiful and the location is great. It's exactly as it looks in the pictures. The house sits atop a hill with a beautiful view of the downtown SD and it’s accessible to all neighborhoods via car or walking distance (5 mins from the airport, 10mins walk to Little Italy, 10mins to downtown/gaslamp, 15mins to Hillcrest). The rooms/house is very comfortable, clean and spacious. It’s a 3 story house with plenty of privacy. The first floor is the entrance to the house which has the loft (which is what I had booked) on the upper level. Good for someone looking to do their own thing and want to be in and out the house. The second level (main floor) has a beautiful stocked kitchen for all your cooking needs. You get a shelf in the fridge and two shelves in the pantry for all your stuff. There’s also a dinning area, spacious patio, living room w/ a really comfy couch and tv. The main floor also has another room which is usually occupied by other guests or the hosts. The lower level has two other rooms. Ones a master room w/ its own patio and another room is a bit smaller than the master but its quiet pleasant. For me the loft had a lot of space and I never fully made use of it. I like sitting in the main living room downstairs and hanging out with one of my other housemates to watch football/basketball NOTE: Stefan is a big Warriors fan :) He’s always rooting for Steph Curry!!! Ok back to the house… It’s very much a homey, chill environment. When you need your private space you have it and when you wanna hang out, have dinner or some wine you can do so in the main room on the second floor. Everyone here is super professional and mindful of everyones space. What I love about this place is that everyone gets along really well and once in a blue moon when everyones schedule lines up we go out for a movie/dinner together. It really is like a family here. Stefan is always super accommodating. They do a weekly Trader Joes run and are more than happy to have you tag along or if you need to go else where. I highly recommend you to stay at Stefan’s.

Stefan and Austin’s place is one of the best places you can choose to stay in San Diego. First of all it is close to everything: The airport, walking distance to Little Italy and downtown, a short drive to the next beach or mall. The loft and the whole house are very clean and decorated in a very nice and modern style. The whole architecture of the house and how well everything is put together will amaze you. You immediately feel like home in their house. The loft offers you some living space with a desk, couch and TV and the bedroom itself has a big closet and a great bed. You can lock your bedroom as well. Only a few stairs down and you are in your own private bathroom with a shower, which is also very modern and clean. The living room and kitchen are very spacious and the kitchen is fully equipped and there isn’t a tool you will miss and if it is missing, Stefan or Austin will buy it the next day. ;) Attached to the living room is a great patio, from which you can enjoy the view over downtown and Banker’s Hill. Stefan and Austin usually rent out the two bedrooms in the downstairs level as well, but they always pick great housemates. Apart from the great amenities, Stefan and Austin are amazing hosts, they have been living in San Diego for a very long time and know all the places to go to, they even offered me rides to places when I didn’t have my car. They also make you feel like home and I enjoyed our social time together in the kitchen. However if you want to be by yourself in the loft that is absolutely fine with every one as well. I can only recommend this place highly; it’s your own fault and loss if you choose something else. And the price is worth every single penny! Enjoy San Diego at Stefan and Austin’s place!

Stefan and Austin are two of the most kind hearted individuals I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I was picked up from the airport, with coffee in hand and taken out to lunch. They gave me a tour of the neighborhoods and showed me the route to my work. Days where I wanted company you could walk downstairs, hang out, cook, and have a drink with everyone. Other days when I was beat after work I could just go to the loft and crash without disturbance. This home is perfect for anyone, but especially for those who are outgoing and compassionate, you will find yourself in good company. The neighborhood is perfect. Walking distance from little Italy and all the excellent food and drinks it has to offer. Don't mind a few minutes uphill walk? You can be in the heart of Balboa park as you walk through the beautiful Banker Hill neighborhood. I was without a car, but Stefan was kind enough to give me a ride when possible and even offered me a bike. They will forever be my favorite hosts and among my greatest friends. Miss it already.

Wow! I cannot recommend Stefan's place any higher. If you can stay here, Do It! The entire place has just great, has multiple balconies with incredible views, is super comfortable and just totally awesome! It is located in a great part of town a block from little Italy and very close to the public transportation system. And Stefan is totally great too. He is a wonderful person who is accommodating and the perfect host. I only wish I had more time to get to know him better. What an awesome experience it was to stay here. I sincerely hope that I will be lucky enough to stay with Stefan again in the future.
