Sitting atop Banker's Hill, the most historic and romantic of San Diego's neighborhoods, is the Sherman Doig House (SDhouse). Built in 1887, this historic Victorian home offers the intimacy of a B&B in the center of "Americas Finest City".
This listing is for private access to FloorTwo in SD house and includes linens, towels, paper products, and kitchen accessories to make this your home away from home.
If you have a larger group (more than 3), please refer to our other SDhouse airbnb listing for other options.
In addition, there are a unique variety of optional 'extras' available which help set this vacation rental apart from any others in San Diego.
Visit our '(URL HIDDEN) website for more info
Guests will have PRIVATE entry and use of FloorTwo which includes a full bathroom, kitchen, butler's pantry, and Parlor Room.
NOTE: Although FloorsTwo has 2 Bedrooms, this listing is for access to just 1 of those bedrooms. Access to the other bedroom on this floor will be restricted which allows us to reduce the cleaning fee for our guests.
If you have additional guests, or would like to reserve both bedrooms on this floor, please refer to our other SDhouse airbnb listing (Downtown Victorian: FloorTwo/2 BDR) for pricing, which includes $100 cleaning fee for an entire floor.
TERMS for AIRBNB guests:
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".
Events include meals, gatherings, parties, or any entrance of 1 or more individuals into the home (or using outside patios/decks) that were otherwise not part of the overnight guest roster.
If you would like to host an "event" at the house arrangements must be made at time of reservation. Events can only be held if there are no other reservations in the house.
Hosting an “event” without prior consent will forfeit 100% of deposit.
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 + spa room along with a full bath - but both are only made available when entire FloorOne is reserved).
Guests must use caution when navigating between floors and along outside walkways and stairwells.
This home is NOT suitable for small children, and guests under 18 may only stay on top floors with at least 1 adult over age 21. (proof of age may be required at check in and we reserve the right to refuse entry to anyone who does not meet these requirements)
We can also make arrangements for your overnight guests to host an event - only with advanced notice, as there may be other guests staying on other floors.
An event is any gathering that involves visitors to the house that are NOT part of the overnight guest list.
All events MUST be planned and authorized in advance.
Hosting an event without authorization will result in 100% forfeit of deposit.
We expect guests to treat this house with respect, courtesy, and to be mindful of the antique contents that have been collected over the past 100 years.
Also, we can not accommodate unexpected guests at check in. Please have an accurate head count at time of reservation.
Unexpected guests will result in 100% forfeit of deposit.

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!
