It is super conveniently located and I didn’t have much trouble at all finding street parking nearby. I did notice the noise levels a bit, both from the highway and BART line nearby as well as from being directly below the main unit, but it was manageable. I would absolutely stay with Stephanie again!”

Phil was very communicative and responsive to any of my questions, and he even has a great binder for guests with his recommendations of things to do. There are animals who wander around (from other tenants), so if you have cat or dog allergies, this might be problematic (I enjoyed chatting with the neighbor and meeting her dog who were both very sweet!). The place is tucked away off the street, so it’s relatively quiet and private. A lovely space for one person for a visit to SLO. Thanks, Phil!”

Guest Review: “Thank you Will, our family had an exceptional stay at your charming home! Will is a terrific host, and provided such a personal, attentive, and caring experience! This charming bungalow is immaculate, wonderfully comfortable throughout, in every way, with so many conveniences considered, and provided. The chef’s kitchen is a joy for meal preparation, wonderfully equipped, and the adjoining breakfast room, off the lovely garden area, is a compelling spot to enjoy! Will’s attention to detail and obvious desire to provide a memorable and enjoyable experience, is clearly above par. We truly felt “at home.” The parking is easy, the location very hard to beat!

Guest Review: “Carrie’s place is as beautiful and comfortable as it looks. It has everything we needed for our time in Santa Barbara, comfortable beds, cozy couches, and a well-stocked kitchen. We will definitely look to come back to her place the next time we’re in town. The location was very convenient, and having the washer and dryer handy was also a bonus. The washer is not terribly quiet, so plan to start a load of laundry before you run out for the day if you have things that need to be cleaned. Carrie was very easy to touch base with if we needed her, and checking was a breeze. I can’t recommend her place enough.”

But, checkin was very complicated as the building policy doesn’t allow Airbnb, so we had to wait 1h for the host to arrive. The apartment is very basic, there is nothing « luxurious » as advertised, no toaster, no kettle, no coffee pots, no coffee or tea mugs, and no slippers (as advertised). The air conditioner is very very noisy, and general street noise is quite loud. Quite disappointed considering the ad and the photos, however, it is half the price of everything else in the area.”

Even before we came she gave us an informative list on what to do in San Diego which was really appreciated. The house was beautiful, I have even taken some tips to bring home to my own house. Everything was thought of. It was a real home from home experience. All the amenities were there and even leaflets on the table of more things to check out should we want to. Parking was included which was great for us. Felt very safe here. I didn’t find it too noisy with the planes and they look great at dusk flying over the houses :) The neighbourhood was fab, we spent both our evenings in north and South Park. We don’t think we would have known about these if we hadn’t of been staying here. The restaurants, coffee shops and bars in this area are great fun and the neighbourhood is super friendly. Perfect location to get to anywhere. Balboa park down the road, gas lamp district and our favourite Coronado beach. Such a positive experience from start to finish and that was down to Maggie being a fantastic host, all without even meeting. Thank you, if we are ever to come back we will be sure to stay here again. Highly recommended!”

Guest Review: “Amazing stay! Fantastic hosts that provide every thing to do and see in SD. Airbnb itself came equipped with absolutely everything we needed. Right in the heart of Little Italy, with tons to do close by. Stephanie showed us around the Airbnb, mapped out things for us to do, gave suggestions, and even provided guidance via text after check-in! Highly recommend for any one coming to SD!”
