A cozy sleeping loft with a sitting room below and a new private bathroom in a restored 1939 classic southern California home. Beautiful gardens, deck, patio and jacuzzi are all yours to enjoy. We're very close to Balboa Park, the zoo, downtown, convention center and the airport. Public transit within 8 blocks.
Sorry, the loft is not suitable for young children.
Our house is kind of a bohemian paradise. Eclectic, down to earth, unpretentious, a place where the creative arts are admired, respected, encouraged and practiced. All are welcome here. We celebrate diversity!
The cozy loft and private bath are connected to the main house but very private. Sleeping in the loft does require climbing an easy wooden ladder.
I also rent 1 bedroom to airbnb guests in the far end of the main house,(Southpark Classic Garden Home) so there may be other guests here during your stay.
I've lived in my classic Southpark home for over 23 years and have personally developed all of the landscaping, designed and built various structures as well as the restoration of the house,(retired remodeling contractor) which included restoring the original cabinetry and millwork. It's a fine example of the building style of the late 1930's. Southpark has many fine examples of homes from the early 1900's.
Please feel free to use the kitchen and dining room as well as the deck, patio and jacuzzi. Laundry facilities are available too if you need them.

I often work at home so I'm usually available. I enjoy sharing travel stories and adventures as well as a glass of wine or a meal.
We're in the incoming flight path so it can be noisy at times although they generally stop from about 11 pm to 6 am
In case you missed it, we have a 4 year old medium size dog that may bark at you. She's a sweetheart and is not vicious in any way. She's all bark and no bite.
Smoking is allowed outside only. If using the kitchen please finish up by 10pm.

I've lived in San Diego for 32 years, raised 2 kids mostly on my own and have been a professional craftsman and home builder for most of my adult life.
I'm also a semi-professional musician, recording artist and full time instrument maker. I build a very unique and beautiful musical instrument called the Array Mbira which is used by professional musicians and film makers all over the world. I usually travel with one of my instruments and am always happy to play.
I'm also a potter and dabble in painting and stained glass... creativity is a way of life for me.
I love to travel and have spent quite a bit of time in Japan and Indonesia as well as extensive travel in the western US. I enjoy many outdoor activities like hiking, biking, kayaking, snow boarding etc. as well as good food and especially good wine. I love exploring the many wine regions up and down the west coast.
I've been involved with airbnb since January of 2012.
