The space

There are not a lot of luxuries here, very basic but it's clean and no shared walls. It's a small house, so it feels very homelike. This is my son's apartment / granny flat, but we own the property, I live in the main house.

Quirky shops and restaurants within walking distance.

Public transportation very accessible, a block away heading towards downtown & North Park.

Free street parking.

I don't have a dedicated laundry room, but if you're here for a week, ask me, and I'll allow access to my laundry room in the main house.
There are 2 laundry mats walking distance as well.

Guest access

Outside space is shared with main house, private walkway into the space, no need to interact with owner to come in and out.

Interaction with guests

We show our guests around upon arrival, but then give them complete privacy. We are just next door so we're available if they need anything.

Other things to note

We have 2 dogs on the property--they are primarily indoor doors, they are not outside unattended or without us, we generally take them out for walks or to dog park so they are not hanging out in backyard unless they're with us.

The place was great! I booked it for friends who would be coming to my wedding. Irma and her son were very accommodating and the place was located in a nice area and looked just like the photos.

I had a great experience at Irma & Marc's place. Everything was exactly as described and it was great having markets, shops, and restaurants within a few blocks. Area is very quiet and the planes flying overhead didn't bother me at all. Irma made it very easy to obtain the key and get situated and there was always a spot on the street to park. Would definitely come back again.

Had a great stay with Irma. I unfortunately was not able to meet Irma because our schedules were different but the apartment had everything we needed and more. Our only request was on checkout day when we accidentally locked ourselves out. They quickly were able to unlock the door and get us on our way to the airport with minimal delay.

We stayed a week at Irma's & Marc's in South Park. The house was very comfortable, clean and cosy. And especially well-equipped - we couldn't have asked for more! We also liked the area, as there are several cool "hipster style" shops and nice bars & restaurants in South Park, just a couple of blocks' walk from the house. And there was even a quite good opportunity for public transport with the line 2 bus going to downtown and North Park (University Ave) from around the corner (and this line was always in time). Irma was also very nice & friendly. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone (although maybe not to someone who wants to party hard all nights long, as the house is very close to Irma's & Marc's own house so I don't know what they would think about the noice). This was a perfect experience for us, and very good value for the money. Thank you!

I had a lovely past few days staying at "Irma's Palace." My friends and I had arrived quite late on a weekday night and Irma stayed up for our arrival in order to get us acquainted to the property. The cottage itself is quite lovely and spacious with several different fold out options and a very comfy queen-sized bed. There were plenty of amenities for those travelers that do not wish to eat out every day or had forgotten to bring their toiletries with them on their trip. Irma was easily reachable and though I didn't have to ask her for anything else, I think I would have had no problem procuring whatever else I needed. Highly recommended for those that would like to stay in a quieter part of San Diego.
