A note of gratitude to Helen. Her wonderful hospitality very well may have ruined me for future stays at an AirBnB. Her place was in an excellent location to easily reach UCSD and the airport. I hope to have another reason to visit San Diego, and will absolutely stay with Helen again, barring she's not already booked.

I'd love to have you stay with me again, hoping you'll come back to San Diego.

Helen's home is lovely and very inviting. I felt comfortable from the minute I arrived. I enjoyed the tranquility of the place and the bedroom space was perfect. Helen is a great host and I throughly enjoyed visiting with her. I would recommend her room to any women staying in San Diego.

I had a great weekend staying at Helen's home! Her home is beautiful and clean. There was plenty of parking by her home for my vehicle. Most of the places that I wanted to go to were only a 15 minute drive away, I found this to be very convenient. She is a very friendly host -- offered hiking advice and books on things to do in San Diego!
