Very cute place! It had all the amenities necessary for the stay: pots, pans, dishes, microwave, towels, extra blankets, etc.
Shirley . Mar 2021
Laurie`s home was perfect! Just what we were looking for. The home was perfectly located for our needs. And it was perfectly clean - no issues at all! Laurie was very kind in our communications. A big thing for us when we stay at Airbnb`s is the kitchen - we always like to cook. Laurie`s kitchen was stocked with everything that was needed to cook meals - a big plus for us. And parking was a plus too - no worries about trying to find street parking. You won`t regret staying at Laurie`s home - A+.
Jessica . Feb 2021
Perfect place if you want to getaway but be close to a lot of different places! The street was crowded making it difficult at times to pull into the driveway or reverse out. Other than that it was cozy and lovely!
Judy . Feb 2021
Amazing place, super clean, Laurie was an awesome host, very helpful and always quick to response. I will definitely come back !!!
Amy . Feb 2021
Convenient and great location. Wonderfully updated and inviting space. Great host with easy check in and out. Would 100% recommend to anyone in the area.
Arthur . Nov 2019
Great place! Pleasant host! I recommend!
Donna . Oct 2019
This is the second time we`ve stayed in this home. It`s in a perfect location - close to major highways and within walking distance of tons of great restaurants and bars. The house is small, but has everything you need. There were only two of us and we were very comfortable in the space. Check-in was a breeze and Laurie is very responsive and thoughtful. I would recommend this house to anyone wanting to stay in the North Park area.
Kavya . Sep 2019
Laurie’s place was super clean and true to its pictures! We loved and enjoyed stayed at Laurie’s place! Laurie’s husband was very kind in suggesting places to visit and recommending few local places to eat. We’d been during summer and the only drawback I would say is, it was too hot and the ceiling fan was not strong enough. But Laurie and her husband were kind enough to provide us with extra table top fans! Highly recommend this place for your stay! Very close to Balboa park and airport.
Jenny . Aug 2019
This place was great for our family vacation! Great location, anywhere we went was only a 10-20 minute drive. The bed we slept in was incredibly comfortable to!
Vincent . Jul 2019
It a very cute home and my bedroom was comfortable. Only a mile away from the heart of North Park. With the windows open the house stayed fairly cool. There is a school in close proximity but it was kind of nice to wake up to the sound of children laughing and playing. I would definitely stay here again.
Nick . Jul 2019
If you`re looking for a place to stay in San Diego I would definitely recommend Laurie`s place, it`s in a perfect location for anything.
Annette . Jul 2019
This is a great little spot in a quiet neighborhood just east of north park. It’s not an area I probably would have chosen to stay in yet I’m glad we did. It’s a sweet little house with a perfect living area to reconnect within. I loved our morning walk to the donut shop and chatting with the locals and the drive-through burrito shop. The owners were really good at providing privacy but being available if we had questions. Our beds were comfy as well. If you are looking for a quality spot to land on a budget this would work. Know it’s not what you may think of as North Park but a bit east. It’s a quick drive to all of the area’s great restaurants and very close to freeways so easy to get to anywhere. Enjoy. Also, try city tacos!
Dean . Jul 2019
We had a good time during our 3 night stay at Laurie`s place. We found it to be a great location with free parking on the premises which was very helpful. We were about a 20 minute drive from all of the sites. Beds were ok and comfortable. Large kitchen with plenty of amenities and the bootle of wine was a nice touch. Thank you! I would recommend this place as it was also great value!
Christopher . Jun 2019
This space was so beautiful. The furnishings were comfortable (beds are super comfy), and all the decor was tasteful and stylish. Currently doing renovations in a space that shares a wall with one of the bedrooms. Shouldn’t be an issue as long as you are awake by 9 am or so.
Tames . Jun 2019
We had a great stay at the house. My bed was super soft and comfortable and I had an amazing night sleep here. Communication was excellent and check-in check-out was a breeze. Thank You.
Osama . Jun 2019
Me and family had a nice stay here, it was me, my wife, parents and three kids, even though her listing wasn’t recommended for kids she accommodated us, which was extremely kind of her. Everything went well, we felt safe in this home. The house is located on a tiny street that is quite difficult to get in and out of though. The location is great, not too far away. The rooms were nice, the beds weren’t the most comfortable/sturdy but they served their purpose. But overall I would stay there again, it’s was a nice stay.
Ryan . Jun 2019
Great experience overall. Clean home. Central location for our activities, no matter what we did we were never more than 20 minutes away.
Tosha . Jan 2019
Great house the beds were so comfortable. The location was great close to many freeways. Lots of places to eat near by. Our host was very quick with responses and check in was a breeze. We had no issues at all. We would definitely stay here again.
Donna . Jan 2019
This house was in the perfect location for us. It was an easy walk to many restaurants, brew pubs, etc. And a short drive to the beach, the zoo, and other sites. The house is small but was plenty big enough for the two of us. It was clean, well cared for and equipped with everything we needed. Laurie is extremely responsive and answered messages within minutes. She also checked in to make sure everything was okay. Overall a great experience.
Magdalena . Jan 2019
Lauries home is adorable and clean. We had a minor hiccup with the water heater but Laurie was quick to respond and guide us on what to do.
Kemisola . Dec 2018
Laurie is a fantastic host!! What I appreciated the most is that she is very quick to respond to any question and helpful with suggestions. Her place was quite clean and located in a safe neighborhood. It was a cute cottage-style house. I appreciated the amenities especially the full sized fridge, the working heater, gas stove and microwave. I use Airbnb and sometimes these basic things are not always as described in some homes. So I really appreciate Laurie keeping her place functional. It was also very spacious. I liked her restaurant recommendations and we enjoyed them!! I also got the opportunity to meet Laurie in person and she is a sweet lady. The only 2 minor things to note...there is double parking on the street and it made it sometimes tough to drive in/out of the driveway; the bed is spring metal which hubby did not mind but I kinda did since I am a light sleeper. Overall, I do feel I got the value we paid for the home. Very nice home!
Micayla . Nov 2018
Great accommodations for booking this trip on a whim. Right at North Park and easy Uber to Gaslamp! Loved the eclectic decor. Pillows were super comfy. Super thankful for on site parking. Great communication and easy check-in/check-out. Had a wonderful time!
Elise . Oct 2018
Three of us stayed at Laurie`s house for a few days while there was work being done on our home locally. The space worked out wonderfully for us; the beds and pillows were very comfortable, there were plenty of towels available, and the parking in the driveway was a huge plus given the area. We took advantage of the location and went out for dinner during the nights of our stay. It was just a quick (5 minute) drive to get to the popular area of town where all the great restaurants are. There was some work being done on the house next door which was unfortunate and a bit loud and annoying at times, but knowing it is a temporary situation, I didn`t let it effect my opinion of the stay.
Kelly . Oct 2018
This was a great place in a quiet neighborhood. The location was perfect for all of our activities. The only negative aspect for us is that navigating in and out if the driveway was tricky. We have a mid sized SUV that was tough to squeeze by the cars parked on the street. The house itself was clean, tidy and we would consider staying here again.
Denise . Oct 2018
Laurie`s cozy apartment was perfect for our needs. It had all the amenities described, in a central location and the perfect size. She was also very responsive to all of our questions. Thank you for accommodating us!
Audrey . Sep 2018
My friend and I stayed for one night while seeing a concert at SDCCU Stadium. The location was very convenient to get to the venue, I just wish we had more time to explore San Diego! Laurie was accommodating and made sure we were comfortable/had everything we needed. The home has a charming beach cottage feel. My favorite... the little gray cat that kept coming by to say hello at the screen door!
Jeanette . Sep 2018
Nice stay very close to all of the activities around San Diego. Everything well represented by Laurie and she was responsive and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.
Nancy . Aug 2018
We had a perfect stay in Laurie`s charming Airbnb!! It was spotless, nicely decorated and had all the comforts of home! The perfect spot to stay for your San Diego destination!!
Andrew . Aug 2018
Expect a cozy bungalow-type home that is relatively on the small, but quaint side. It has Netflix on the TV and an available drive-way parking space which is definitely a plus. I`d recommend this stay for those trying to get a whole house for a affordable price. The area nearby in North Park is very close and an eclectic neighborhood.
Justine . Aug 2018
Beautiful home. Beds were super comfortable and Laurie made sure we had everything we needed . It has an older feel to it but I felt like it was in the center of all the places we needed to go. The only con was the heat. There is no air conditioning but there is ceiling fans and she has one in the closet so you can have in the living room. My friend and I had a pleasant stay.
Kerryn . Jul 2018
Laurie was a great host! She always responded right away to my messages , and gave us good suggestions of places to eat. The cottage is very cozy and cute. It has everything we needed for a restful night. It was nice to be so close to the trendy North Park area with lots of fun dining options. Would stay there again when we are in the area.
Tanner . Jul 2018
Laurie’s home was perfect for me and my one friend, staying for 3 nights. The neighborhood is quiet and the location was convenient.
Nancy . Jul 2018
A nice space with a comparatively large kitchen and living room, well kept and pleasant. We had a great stay, and Laurie was a very helpful and communicative host. We`d happily stay here again!
Alicia . Jul 2018
Laurie was a great host and checked in on us to make sure we had everything we needed. Her home was very clean and a great location that was just a short drive to everywhere we wanted to go. She even provided coffee for us which was a nice touch! Would definitely stay in Laurie’s home again.
Ashley . Jul 2018
Awesome spot. Street parking is brutal for sure. Great two bedroom and close to stuff. We also brought our two ear lld and she did great in the space. Also very communicative which was awesome.
Janeth . Jun 2018
This was my first time using an AirB&B and I felt at home from the moment I walked into Laurie`s place. The house was clean, comfortable and pleasant. The rooms were also comfortable and the house had everything we needed to make meals and enjoy our evenings. The location is close to many interesting places and we loved the neighborhood`s personality. Laurie was quick in her responses and shared a few local places to eat and buy groceries. We felt safe and enjoyed our 10 day stay. If I am back in San Diego I will definitely stay in Laurie`s home again.
Brenda . Jun 2018
Laurie was an amazing host, replied super fast when I was confused about stuff. Her place is beautiful just like in the photos, location close to everything. It is near a school so you can hear the kids in the morning, but its not really a bother. My family were really comfortable during the stay. 100% would recommend!
Geraldine . Jun 2018
This place was so cute! This house is close to everything! Very clean and well taken care of. Laurie was a great host and made the house feel like home! I would definitely recommend this to everyone, I hope to be back soon!
Sean . Jun 2018
Was in town for a marathon. 2 couples can share comfortably, but the shared restroom could be an issue for those who prefer to take a long time in there. Location was great, just a hop and skip away from food and freeway. Went to a local Target Express for essentials. Only downside would be the street noise. No air conditioning so be prepared to open the windows. There was some construction noise and the occasional car accelerating down the street. On Monday morning there was a school assembly in progress. Being so close to a school, noise could be an issue when school is in session. All in all no issues with the property or the process. Would definitely stay again if looking.
Sonia . May 2018
Laurie was very helpful and quick to respond when I had questions about checking in. Very nice location, having parking was ideal and the place was nice and clean. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
Luisa . May 2018
Laurie’s place was pretty small but comfortable. Checking in was a breeze. This was my first stay at an Airbnb and I was not disappointed. Great stay.
Camille . May 2018
Laurie`s bungalow was a great place to stay. It was central to everything in San Diego, and worked perfectly for 4 people. I would definitely stay again.
Wesley . May 2018
Very good value place with good location. Host is very kind and good at communicating.
Alix . May 2018
Not too far from shops and restaurants. There were three of us but cozy for up to five people (one queen, one full bed, and a comfy couch). Several drawers in bathroom to keep toiletries in. 2 cars fit comfortably tandem style in driveway. Nice and clean place. Has a dishwasher as well.
Marcy . Apr 2018
Cute and cozy little apartment! Definitely loved that there was a driveway to park in! Everything was perfect and clean. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in San Diego and I would definitely stay there again!
Gavin . Apr 2018
Very cozy and comfortable house a short drive or long walk from all the attractions of North Park and Normal Heights. Laurie was very easy to work with. Check-in was a breeze. The private parking is a nice bonus in this neighborhood.
Foh . Apr 2018
Nice and clean. Balboa park and north park night life are super close. Laurie was very quick and responsive with any questions I had. I’d definitely book again!
Taylor . Apr 2018
Laurie`s place was cute, cozy, and clean. It was located in a central location to many sights and we enjoyed our stay there. Laurie was kind enough to give us a list of things to do and restaurant recommendations which was a very nice touch and helped a lot! Thank you Laurie :)
Veronica . Mar 2018
Laurie’s place was so cute and quaint. It was perfect for one night. Also a quick Uber ride to North Park and close to the freeway entrance. And check in was super easy. I would definitely stay again. Thank you Laurie!:)
Laurie . Mar 2018
We loved our quick overnight at Laurie’s place! She was communicative and friendly and i hope to come back soon!
Melanie . Mar 2018
Great little cottage near all freeways and close to The Gaslamp and North Park. Laurie communicated quickly to answer any questions we had. We had a lovely stay!
Vivian . Mar 2018
I really appreciated Laurie`s quick responses. She answered questions quickly and gave helpful tips on places to visit. She gave me all the information needed, so the check-in process was nice and smooth. Her kitchen is fully equipped so we were able to make breakfast & coffee before we ventured out. We arrived in the evening and the neighborhood appeared a bit sketchy and dark, but it was very quiet, safe and conveniently located. The parking spot helped a lot! Landmarks, tourist spots, restaurants, bars, everywhere we went was under a 10 min ride. Water pressure, cleanliness & beds are a big deal for me. The only complaint I had were the beds. The mattresses were a bit saggy and one is sinking in the middle. The excellent communication and convenient location were worth it for me and I would stay here again.
Nicole . Mar 2018
The house was everything we needed and just the right size. Really close to everything. Laurie was helpful and gave great tips on activities in SD.
Moosa . Mar 2018
Laurie`s place was very clean and conveniently located in a central location. Her communication was always quick and detailed. This is a bargain for anyone visiting the San Diego area.
Amanda . Feb 2018
Check in was fast and easy. We stayed during a week day which was on the pricier side compared to other better locations. We had to book this last minute unfortunately. This area is actually in City Heights not North Park, which is not a very good location. The area surrounding is a sketchy neighborhood. The pictures are a bit misleading with different furniture, set up, and upholstery. Everything else was fine, plenty of towels, good size.
Jennifer . Feb 2018
When we stayed in Laurie`s home we experienced clean and comfortable accommodations with excellent, short drive access to shopping, restaurants, and freeways. Laurie was easy to reach for questions. The bathroom was spotless and well stocked and the beds and pillows were comfy and inviting. If you find ourself in San Diego and would prefer a home to a hotel I would highly recommend this fairly priced, centrally located property.
Lucy . Feb 2018
This was a clean and comfortable place. We only stayed one night, so we didn`t really spend a lot of time there. But it was very nice. I would stay again if I planned to return to San Diego. Laurie was helpful and responsive.
Tisha . Feb 2018
House was super clean and convenient location. I was there to watch my daughter play softball at university of San Diego and it was less than 10 min drive. Anytime I messaged Laurie she responded very quickly. Thank you
Hyunchul . Feb 2018
It is located in a quiet and safe place even though you can reach every attractions of San Diego in few minutes by a car. The house was very clean and there were plenty of amenities that you need. It has spacious parking space so you can easily park your car. The host Laurie was very communicative and nice. Despite that we booked her house the day before our arrival, she warmly welcomed us. I really appreciate that. Highly recommended place for the travelers who are more than 3. Thanks again Laurie!
Sally . Jan 2018
Great location, short drive to airport and down town. Comfortable beds, not far from grocery store once we found the short cut through the school. Laurie gave us great suggestions of places to see.
Pamela . Jan 2018
The house was very comfortable and every possible amenity was thoughtfully provided. We especially liked the funny little cabinet in the living room that contained a different game board in each drawer. The off-street parking was MUCH appreciated, too. There was someone staying in the other half of the house with one car and we had two cars - all were nicely accommodated.
Nisarg . Jan 2018
wonderful house, clean and welcoming with great amenities. Laurie is a great host and very responsive. the house is in a very convenient location for tourists. Parking with the house is a big plus. Neighborhood is a bit run down but is safe. Would recommend this house without hesitation.
