About the Homestay
My home is a contemporary and well appointed townhome, centrally located in San Diego's Banker's Hill/Park West neighborhood, which is located just six blocks from Balboa Park and Just six blocks from Little Italy, which is home to dozens of great San Diego restaurants. It's also very convenient to the airport, and other public transportation, as well as the convention center. From the home, you can enjoy stunning views of the San Diego Bay, Point Loma, Coronado Island, and the downtown San Diego skyline.
The available room is a large bedroom with a small balcony where you can take advantage of the views and great weather. It has a private adjacent bath, a large desk/work area, high speed WiFi access, and television.
I'm a single professional who lives in the home alone. I often work from home and also travel for work/pleasure regularly, so I may or may not be here during your stay. I keep up with local restaurants, arts, and all the other things San Diego has to offer to be able to guide guests to the best experience for their stay here.

Convenient location, room is spacious and clean. Brain was helpful
Had a fantastic stay! The room is spacious, clean, has a modern design and features and a private bathroom. The bed is super comfy, a huge plus! It's located in a safe neighborhood and Brian's a really nice person. Would definitely recommend.
Brian was so nice and friendly to us, we felt very good at his house. The room is perfect for two people and has an amazing view! The house is in little Italy - you just need 10 minutes to get into town by foot. It was awesome :)
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
