About the Homestay
HI!! My Name is Tess! I am a single Mother with 2 young men in my life...more like two lovely little boys, 3 and 6. We have a wonderful home to share with guests. We have a large back yard and we are centrally located in Beautiful San Diego. We are just East of La Jolla and the beaches are about 7 mins away.
We are a tight family and really enjoy company. We have a wonderful medium size dog named Sparkey. We love being active. We enjoy the outdoors, sports, baking, cooking, board games, and simply being with friends and family.

We are a really sweet simple family. I appreciate a person that is mostly independent but is so welcome to enjoy our events of our lives as well. We would love it. We rise a bit early and we do not stay up too late but we do not mind what you do outside of the home only remain respectful to us as well. We are a very easy going family. We are very busy, but who isn't with 2 little kids. There is no smoking in our home. We have rules of respect and courtesy. No late night partying within the home, if you come in late, that is quite ok but please let me know so I can be prepared.
Smoking is not allowed.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Stayed with Tess for 2 months while in San Diego for summer internship. Lovely family. Nice house on quiet street. Great location to explore San Diego with easy access to any part of the area. I would recommend this location to friends.
What a great hostess, Tess is very nice and has a lovely home, and Sparky, her dog is so friendly, you just can't help falling in love with him. Will be staying on for the rest of the month until I find a home.
Homestay is all about connecting with people and feeling welcomed...
