Kelli and John are teachers. They have traveled using Air Bnb and wanted to try hosting. Kelli's started on Air Bnb by hosting travelers in her RV. It had full hook ups and was ready for guests. Kelli was very successful with that venture and she earned many 5 star reviews securing Super Host status. John and Kelli moved, she traded in her Western RV and they purchased a new home that now hosts a guest house on Air Bnb. Their "Tropical Golf Getaway" has many more amenities and Kelli and John know you'll enjoy your stay in sunny San Diego which they feel is a slice of paradise!
