    First let me start by saying that I am a guy who has never lived in a house other than my family house. So I was hesitant to give it a go at first . But I am happy that I did .Let me tell you that I felt like home as soon as I got there. Ninette, Mike and Luke are the nicest, sweetest and the most engaging people I ever met. What I mean by that is that they are always friendly, caring and also they told me a lot of places to visit (coffee shops, malls, etc). Also they are honest and they are always fun to talk to . finally, I really enjoyed my stay with them.

    A place that truly felt like home. Ninette, mike, luke and his little daughters are by far the best people I’ve met in the US.
    Very cozy house and a respectful, peaceful, and helpful family.

    All my love for this amazing family

    Ninette was a fantastic host. She was very accommodating, helpful and friendly. She gave me some superb recommendations about the neighborhood.
    I also enjoyed his very comfortable bedroom which is in the most convenient location for me. Is a quiet, clean, spacious and calming place
    Couldn’t have been better. House was beautiful and equipped with everything I needed. It made my stay on San Diego even better than we could have hoped for.
    I wouldn’t hesitate to stay at Ninette's home again.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
