About the Homestay
I live in a suburb of San Diego, 7 miles to the ocean. The home is large, with a living room, family room and upstairs TV room, providing plenty of privacy. Four bedrooms and three baths allow for comfort. Across the street is a children's park, hilly hiking trails and a nearby duck pond. Legoland and the Wild Animal Park are nearby amenities, while the Zoo, Balboa Park and Sea World can be reached by the freeway (30-40 minutes).
There are no pets in the home. There is no smoking or alcohol on the premises.
I like to cook and bake, so there are usually fresh, healthy foods in the house. There are two farmers' markets nearby on the weekend.

About the Area
My home is located about 30 minutes north of San Diego by freeway and one hour from Los Angeles. There is a train that runs north/south along the coast. Close by is Legoland and Wild Animal Park, with beautiful, natural outdoor settings for the animals and excellent hiking opportunities. The San Diego Zoo (and Balboa Park) is about 40 minutes drive. It's close to Mira Costa and Palomar Colleges. Very centrally located, there are many opportunities to see the sights!

Joanne was a great host. She welcomed me and my daughter into her home like family. Joanne went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. She was extremely helpful and supportive throughout our stay and is an excellent cook. I feel extremely blessed to have had the opportunity to meet such a caring and welcoming host. I would highly recommend anyone to stay at her home.
She is wonderful host,very kind and caring. her place is quite clean and tidy. I recommend it to every body who looks for a happy place to stay
The home owner is a very nice lady. We checked in and back at very later night and she is still waiting for us. She will talk lots of interesting things with you. And the breakfast she prepared for you is very good.
The bed and rest room are clean and nice.
Recommend you book here if you visit San Diego.
