This is a comfortable place to land when you come back from your adventures of the day. The courtyard is a perfect place to play board games in the evening with each other. The heaters or fans make it comfortable in any weather conditions.

My boyfriend enjoyed our stay here. The location is great and the studio was very clean and had many amenities. We especially appreciated the AC as it was particularly warm the days we stayed. Would recommend to anyone!

I loved everything! The neighborhood, the layout, the amenities, the decor, the shower - so beautiful! It felt like my own little place. I can't wait to rent it again soon!

The location of this rental was perfectly located in between my two groups. I stayed alone and felt very safe and secure in my bird nest. It was so comfy and cozy. A little home away from home. The breeze was heaven and the sunsets were amazing. The BBQ and backyard was tranquil and relaxing.
This is a perfect studio for one person and their is ample space for a short stay. The bed is confy and the shower is huge. Netflix is free. Binged a few new shows at night. They have a small fridge, microwave, hot plate. and all the cooking items you will need for a quick meal. Walking into town was a nice .5 mile stroll. They have a great organic market and Deli. For a little farther walk you can get across the bridge to Vons or Rite Aid. I will definitely to go back.💜

The Adams Ave. property was lovely. The location is perfect jumping off space to explore San Diego. It's near the neighborhoods of North Park and Hillcrest and is a short 12 minute drive from downtown (on good traffic days). The bed was comfy and the bathroom was big. The hostess who lives in front house was sweet, worried that the porch light had gone out and she offered us a flashlight. My next trip to San Diego, the first place I will go is to this property. A wonderful pied-á-terre.

Andrew . Jan 2019
This AirBnB is identical to the pictures! Very very cozy and private and intimate. This Airbnb is really unique as it is a guest house attached to the main house. Due to this situation it felt like a private studio with bedroom, bathroom, and microwave and mini fridge. There was actually one day where we just stayed in, woke up late, ordered take out and watched Netflix, because this Airbnb is so comfortable. I’d highly recommend this Airbnb to anyone staying in San Diego. The location is very central. 10-15 min drive to most places. I also wanted to mention that we got an early check in to 12PM as requested and I’m really grateful for that.

Fernando . Oct 2018
This was a great place to settle down and relax. I was in SD for work and needed a place to stay. This place worked out perfectly! The room was great for 1 person. It was roomy, stylish, and clean. The AC worked great, WiFi was good, and parking was not a problem on the street. In addition the neighborhood was beautiful, safe, and perfect for evening walks. I’d definitely recommend staying there!

This place is a great location to everything in San Diego. The room was clean and nicely furnished and the neighborhood is quiet and really nice. We were only 15-20 minutes away from a lot of the attractions of San Diego.

Bonnie . Sep 2018
We had a wonderful time during our stay. Hire 2 Host was very quick with their responses and accommodating towards our late check in requests. Quiet neighborhood, with easy access to the upstairs garage apartment. Very clean, organized, with stocked amenities. I will definitely be recommending this location to friends in town who host visitors often. Thank you for a wonderful time!
Karen . Sep 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our 6 night stay here. The space was just as advertised! Super clean, cute space. The bed was so comfortable and the location was spectacular. AC was a big plus as there were a few 85and above days- it cooled the space down in no time and made for great sleeping. I felt very safe and would walk daily the 5-8 min to town for Starbucks and to eat at the many amazing local restaurants. The property is well maintained and really just adorable. Communication with the property managers is stellar and fast. If it is available in the winter- spring I will for sure try to book it.
Melanie . Aug 2018
We loved everything about this place! From the minute you walk in, you are greeted with a stylish, clean room! The sitting area was wonderful to watch tv after a long day (You have access to Netflix which was a great way to unwind)!The bathroom had extra towels and nice smelling soaps. With the small kitchenette, you could prepare meals or reheat some leftovers. There is a hidden refrigerator in the cabinet that is kind of small, so don’t bring tons of food and you will be fine. The bed was comfortable and had plenty of pillows. This place is centrally located from many popular attractions! It was great to come back to A/C at the end of the night! Would definitely recommend to any traveling couple!
Eunice . Aug 2018

Gianna . Aug 2018
Amazing space to spend a few days enjoy what SoCal has to offer, has all the necessities to have a comfortable stay.
Reid . Aug 2018
Hire 2 Host’s place was perfect for a weekend getaway. The guesthouse was beautiful, extremely comfortable, and stocked with all the amenities we needed. It’s located conveniently for a quick walk/drive to restaurants, bars, and more and only about 15 minutes from the closest beach. We would definitely stay here again.
Chase . Aug 2018
This home was in the BEST location! So close (down the road about 10 minute walk from restaurants and starbucks). I love the Kensington area... easy to get to there areas of San Diego. The house was the back house of a home of another couple. We didn't see the couple much as the airbnb is run by a rental company, but the couple were nice and said hello and left us to have the backyard patio every morning before we left. They gave us ample space! The AC works perfectly and the shower has everything you need. There are extra towels, an iron board and a steamer, hair dryer and a microwave and mini fridge. Would not recommend staying here if you need a full kitchen, which we did not need... but that is pretty apparent from the photos and the description of the home. The manager of the space was SUPER communicative -- he responded to all my questions within minutes. Great affordable place!
Kathie . Aug 2018
The lovely, well appointed apartment is located in a beautiful historic district and just a short walk to shops and various restaurants (we particularly liked the sushi and pizza ones). There is a lovely backyard and covered patio which is perfect for dining or relaxing. And, the beaches are not far away! We so enjoyed our stay that we are planning a return visit!

This place had amazing charm and great decor. Starting with the wrought iron spiral staircase leading up to it, the attention to detail was great and the cleanliness was amazing. It was a very short walk (less than 5 minutes) to the cute little Kensington downtown area which has a ton of historic appeal (and a Starbucks). The host has added several nice touches including outlets with USB ports (great since I forgot my power brick for my phone) and blackout curtains which made for a lovely nap after a morning at the beach. The bed was very comfortable with high quality bedding. Oh, and unlike many historic residences, the A/C unit kept the room at a perfect temperature through my whole stay. It took me a minute to find the mini fridge (inside of a cabinet) but that seems more like my issue than theirs :) Maybe a label or note on the counter would be helpful. But, since that is my only complaint, they get a full 5 stars from me. All in all I would say this place was nicer than most hotels and the host has taken great care in providing guests with a wonderful experience.
Charity . Jul 2018
First time using this site and wasn’t sure what to expect but we were very pleased! Host was responsive and very helpful. Guest house was clean and comfortable. Great location! 15 minutes to the beach or Sea World and a lot of cute restaurants and cafes within walking distance. Would definitely recommend, we had a great stay!
Colton . Oct 18
Amazing place to stay! Beautiful, quiet neighborhood in a great area. Very convenient to get to and from the beach, and the room and common yard area are amazing. Highly recommend!
