About the Area

***KEY LOCATION: north PB/Baja La Jolla ... just a few steps from the beach, coffee shops, post-office, restaurants, grocery stores ...

*countless nearby restaurants: Tacos Mi Rancho, Turquoise Europe Bistro, The Fishery and Blazin Grill (allowed to bring your own wine).
*quite a few nearby parks: Palisades Park, Tourmaline Beach Park, Kate Sessions Park, Belmont Park, Mission Beach Park, Mission Bay Park.
*Tourmaline and Turquoise for shops and great surfing spots
*four nearby bus routes. The closets transit routes are the Mission Blv. and Wilbur Av 30, The Felspar st. & Mission Bl. 27 and the Mission Blv. & Felspar st. 8.

House Rules

I'm always happy to interact with my dear guests, share special moments, cook together, and show them around Pacific Beach. I've become friends with several guests and visited them around the world.
However, I also understand the beauty of diversity, and that perhaps ... you, my guest, might have reasons or preferences to do your own thing ...
As always I'll interact with you as little or as much as you prefer. That is totally up to you!
Please, note I DO NOT provide breakfast. However, meals can be available upon request/agreement (additional fee). Sometimes, guests will stay for weeks and months and we might become friends; in that case, I might decide to offer a welcoming breakfast as a courtesy.

House Rules


ACTIVE: I'm certainly appreciative of people who have their life together. Working/studying hard, being active outdoors and bringing a positive attitude home are the root to a much healthier relationship on a shared home. (for some reason couch potatoes do not match with ZEN)

DRUGS & ALCOHOL: I do not use drugs or drink much (occasionally on weekend nights I might have a glass of wine or a beer.)

SMOKE: Like most places in California, we do not smoke inside. I'm allergic and I cannot stand the smell. If you smoke, perhaps, you should find a place that's more suitable to your needs.

GREEN 1: Environment is a major concern for anyone close to the beach. If you keep the air flowing naturally (open doors/windows,) heavy cleaning products (mildew and pest control) will not be needed. I’m allergic!

GREEN 2: Turn switches off before leaving any room (lights, fans, Tv’s, etc).

SHOES: Smile!! We have never worn shoes inside. Our carpet is new and you can roll over and/or literally eat on the floor (oriental style.)

AFTER BEACH: please embrace our clean lifestyle: do not enter, sit on the couch or lay in bed while wet. Hosing down your feet before entering will be extremely appreciated as we do not want to bring any creatures or sand to the house.

MAID SERVICES: Although I love a clean home, I'm extremely busy to spend my day cleaning after others. If we are smart we can each pick-up after ourselves and save additional $100 in weekly cleaning fees.

… ZEN!!
VISITORS: I am not very fond of living in crowded places so please don't bring people home. I work hard on weekdays and need to relax on the weekends.

PETS: We all love pets … feed and be greeted by our Star Nemo (my fish is our only pet -I’m severely allergic to cats and some dogs and cannot share accommodations with them.)

NOISE: Zen is a place of refuge. The best guests are pretty quiet, use headphones and know how to kindly turn a door knob. Ahhh … I have a soft spot in my heart for Zzzzen people!

COMMUNICATION: “A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.” — Dalai Lama. Let's be honest with ourselves and communicate with each other to improve on the quality of our relationship (if we're communicating with the intention of love and caring, we can pretty much say anything, right?)

KARMA: I carry both a double degree in Civil Engineering & Architecture and a BA in Tourism. But it’s in being kind to others that I find greater personal fulfillment and success. “Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.” — Dalai Lama

… FUN!!
I love to travel and learn about different cultures. I am friendly, considerate, positive and would love a roommate to laugh and bond with.

Smoking is not allowed.

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?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). 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.
