That being said, our surrounding neighborhood is in an underdeveloped and primarily business-oriented district of San Diego. There is a public school and homes to the southwest of us, operating warehouses to the north and south of us, and a medical transport/small business complex to the east of us. All of which is in a primarily Hispanic district just south of the micro village known as “Golden Hill”.

Air BnB does not insure events for its hosts, and the liability is out of our control.

This insurance is so that everyone including our guests is covered in the case of injury, police citation, or destruction to the property.

If a guest arrives with a pet WITHOUT letting us know and WITHOUT paying the $300 deposit the reservation will be subject to a $300 FINE and no refund will be issued.
I would like to reserve a home for someone who is 18 years old is that ok?
We do not allow bookings for unsupervised minors. Payment for the housing can be made by anyone but we need the contact information for one guest staying at the property. That guest must be 18 years or older and accept full responsibility for any damages to the listing. In addition we do not allow under age drinking at our property.
I have less people than originally intended; can I get a discount since I will be using less bedrooms?
We do not offer discounts after a booking has already been made. We will however ensure that you have an AMAZING time with the people you show up with.
Can I bring a few friends over that are not listed?
We allow up to 5 outside guests without authorization. We have cameras around the perimeter of all buildings and if we suspect that there are more guests being brought in who are unauthorized, we reserve the right to terminate the reservation immediately without issuing a refund.
I paid 50% of my booking, when is the rest of my reservation payment due?
Guests must make full payment 45 days before arrival. After 45 days, guest will be given a grace period of 5 days before a reservation is cancelled and the original 50% down payment is forfeited.
My reservation was canceled due to my failure to pay the remaining balance before 45 days of arrival and the 5 day grace period. How do I get a refund?
A guest that does not pay in full for a reservation by 40th day before arrival has forfeited their deposit. This guest will have the option to complete the booking ONLY if the rental is still available. If the rental is no longer available, the guest will forfeit their deposit due to missing the deadline.
What is your cancellation policy?
*For a FULL REFUND-
Cancellation must be made within 48 hours of reservation and at least 60 full days prior to listing local check-in time (4pm). After 48 hours, the 50% deposit is non-refundable.
*For a 50% Refund:
Cancellation must be made 60 full days prior to the local check in time (4pm) otherwise no refund. For example, if check in is on Friday, cancel by Friday 60 days before check in time for 50%.
If remaining balance is not paid by the 60thday from check in date, your reservation will be cancelled automatically by 4 pm. And your 50% deposit will be forfeited. You may book the property with the remaining 50% balance only if it is still available. A reminder to pay remaining balance will be sent 10 days before due date (70 days before arrival)

Check In/Check Out
Can I check in early/check out late?
Check in early or out later is now available as part of our resort fee within our communal “Grass is Greener” hang out area. Enjoy a beverage, lay in a hammock, and soak up some San Diego sunshine!
Is there a key I need to pick up upon arrival?
No, all doors associated to our rentals use a digital lock. You will receive the code to your rental by 10 am the morning of your arrival.
Our flight lands at noon and we can’t check in until 4 pm, do you have any suggestions while we wait?
Everything in San Diego is relatively close to the airport. Our number 1 suggestion after landing whether you have a car or are using ride share is to visit “The Crack Shack” and the “Little Italy Ballast Point Brewery” to eat some amazing food and take the edge off after traveling. By the time your group is done with lunch and spirits are perked, we suggest that any remaining time is spent at the Costco located at 650 Gateway Center Dr, San Diego, CA 92102. You do not need a membership to purchase alcohol here. So you can stock up for the time your group is staying, by this time it should be close to four and the home will be ready for your group!
What are we responsible for when we check out?
We ask all of our guests to take the responsibility of cleaning their own trash and getting all dishes into a dishwasher before they depart. Failure to do so can result in a $40 fine for each bag of trash, or full run in the dishwasher. It is an essential part of getting our large homes ready by 4pm check in time for arriving guests.
What time is Check in/Check Out?
Check in for our rentals is 4pm.
Check out is 10 am.
