Interakcija s gostima
We prefer to meet and greet ALL of the guests in a reservation upon arrival. Other than check-in and check-out, we so however respect the privacy of our guests but remain available via email, text, or phone at all times.
NOTE: All reservation changes must be submitted through airbnb - including adding/reducing days and adding/reducing guests. We do not allow any alterations of reservations outside of the airbnb system (no exceptions).
The home is currently under stewardship of the trustee of the Bertha Stroud Family Trust and was purchased not only to establish a legacy estate for the heirs of the trust, but to share this historic landmark with locals and visitors to San Diego. This property was chosen because, just like the namesake of the trust, it is eclectic, whimsical, and possesses a unconventional character that can best be described as eccentrically unique.
This house is historically preserved and was registered as a California landmark for San Diego in 1975 after undergoing a complete structural and aesthetic restoration. So although there are modern amenities such as electric stove, energy saver refrigerators, microwaves, flat screen TVs, satellite dish cable, wireless internet, etc.....the construction is definitely from Victorian era. Stairs (both in and out) are steep and narrow, railings are historic (i.e. not current safety code), and plumbing is limited to a bath on each floor (except the first floor which has additional powder room and spa room because the former owner ran a luxury Day Spa).
Guests therefore must use caution when navigating between floors. This home is NOT suitable for small children, and guests under 18 may only stay on top floors.
We can make arrangements for you and your overnight guests to host an event - only with advanced notice. An event is any gathering that involves ANY visitors to the house that are NOT part of the overnight guest list.
TERMS for AIRBNB guests:
Unexpected guests will automatically forfeit 100% of deposit, as we prepare the set-up, linens, towels, and paper products for a comfortable stay for the designated number of guests at the time of reservation.
If additional guest spaces are needed, we need at least 3 days advanced notice - and there will be additional charge at posted rates. (which MUST go through AIRBNB)

In order to ensure a peaceful environment for all guests, we limit entry to the house strictly to OVERNIGHT guests at ALL times - unless other arrangements are made to host an "event".

Formerly from Ohio, I migrated to California after medical school, grew roots, and haven't looked back since. (although I still miss real tomatoes, sweet corn, and Cedar Point)
My two "adult" children and I try to find time to travel together and stay in private homes when on vacation.
We have been using airbnb since 2007 and hosted many wonderful guests from around the world.
Currently we have a large Victorian house that can be split up many ways to accommodate a wide range of group sizes (from 1 to 26 guests) and thus we have 8 separate listings for variations within this house, with a private entrance for each.
Looking forward to your visit!
