The space

Our Air Bnb guest quarters are located below our home. We live in La Mesa, a quiet suburban neighborhood of San Diego on the west side of Mount Helix. Our yard is park-like with lots of trees. The quaint town of La Mesa is just a few blocks below where you can antique shop and enjoy various pubs and restaurants. The 94 freeway is 2 minutes away providing immediate access to Downtown San Diego and The World Famous San Diego Zoo within 20 minutes. Beaches are a 25 minute drive off the Interstate 8 and feel free to use our beach kit which includes a cooler, chairs and a boogie board. Our place is perched in the hills of La Mesa which is famous for its antique shops, breweries and Oktoberfest! The Trolley runs through La Mesa but you will most likely need to provide your own transportation around town. There is free, safe and convenient street parking directly in front of the house.

As you enter our Bnb, there is ample seating in the front room with a couch and cozy eating nook. The dinette is a great place to share meals or do work at the table area.

This was our first time using Airbnb and I was a bit nervous. Everything turned out great!! Kelli and John were very sweet and their house is beautiful. The house was very clean and it had everything we needed. The outside has a beautiful tiki bar that we got to enjoy and BBQ. John came out and offered us chocolates, crackers and marshmallows to make s’mores on their fire pit. This is the place to stay!!

These guys were fantastic! Our kids spent hours in the outdoor spaces. Mini golf was a huge hit. We were able to relax when not sight seeing. Beautiful property and gracious hosts and tenant. Home away from home. We would definitely return next trip and whole heartedly would suggest it to family and friends.

This place was s perfect for me in all aspects. I was in LA the night before, needed a place to stay the next day for a wedding. I reserved the BNB late the night before, and they responded within minutes. When I arrived, check in was seamless and easy. The place was spotless, smelt great, had a very good home feel. Their property is amazing to say the least and there is great views from the room. I would most definitely recommend staying here to everyone. My only regret is that I didn't have time to stay longer.

This was my first experience with Airbnb, so I really didn't know what to expect, and since we have two young children, I wanted to be sure that I chose a child-friendly place. Kelli messaged me check-in details early, and even gave us the option of checking in early. My family and I spent the day at the San Diego Zoo so we were exhausted when we arrived, and Kelli went out of her way to come give us a quick rundown of where things were. The fridge had some cold water bottles, and there were some quick and easy breakfast options, coffee, tea, and snacks. The guest house was very clean overall, and our kids especially loved the play house and putting green in their backyard. Our car was parked out front and we discovered that someone had broken one of our windows, and Kelli went out of her way to reach out to Airbnb to see if there was something they could do. Their neighborhood seemed like a very safe one, so I'm chalking it up to a random freak occurrence, and I'll definitely be choosing their place again next time we're in San Diego!

The property was beautiful and had an awesome view. In a quiet neighborhood up in the hills. Convenient location, only 15 minutes away from Gaslamp District in San Diego. Definitely would stay again next time I'm in San Diego!

After a wedding and a broadway show, Kelli and John’s place is just what my husband and I needed to relax. Loved the thoughtful snacks and refreshments. Beautiful home! My only regret is not staying longer!

Kelli And John User ProfileKelli And John is a superhost.

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!
