About the Homestay
We have a three bedroom home that is occupied by myself, my husband Los and our two loveable dogs. There may be time that my sons might come by, they are 20 and 22 years old. The room we have available has a very comfortable queen size bed, a flat screen mounted tv, desk, dresser and WIFI is available through out the house. The restroom is shared with guests. Master bedroom is on the other side of the house. The back patio is my favorite part of our home with the most breath taking views of San Diego, the bay and even the ocean. I love to sit outside in the morning with a cup of coffee or in the evenings with a glass of wine.
I was born and raised in San Diego and am happy to talk with you and give you recommendations to places to go see or restaurants to try. We like to cook in the evenings most days but our schedules doesn't always allow for it. When we are cooking we will invite you to eat with us if you would like. We have two beach cruiser bikes available for you to use.
When my kids were little I used to host all the time. We loved meeting new people from all around the world and to learn about different countries. We mostly host students that come to San DIego to go to school to better their English. We are looking forward to making new friends and learning about you and your culture as well.
The room is spacious with a new luxury queen size bed, desk, dresser. There is room for an air mattress or portable crib if a family is traveling with a child. For payment, we do require you pay via Paypal or Venmo prior to your stay. Once the room is booked I will send you my information, or you can pay by cash on arrival.
Our goal while you are here is making sure you are comfortable and feel at home.

Kathy and Los are amazing hosts! I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in San Diego. They made me feel so comfortable and looked after me as if I was their best friend. No question was too much trouble - they were more than happy to advise me on where to go, places to eat, the way to travel etc. They are a very happy couple and a pleasure to be around. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations; at the same time I felt I had plenty of privacy. I didn't want to leave. Thank you very much, both of you. If ever I am back to San Diego, I would love to stay with them again. PS: Their dogs are adorable, extremely friendly and really funny (I've made friends with them too).
I loved my stay with Kathy and Los. They were very welcoming and helpful! They made me feel like home. I'll always come back whenever I am in San Diego!
