Well we needed a place to stay for a short while before our new apartment was ready, and there was only one place that would’ve wanted to be. None other than the Gillespie House. Mike and Dakee; the hosts are the most caring, attentive, and sharing people you will ever meet. We spent time there Read more about Jahtiba Marcus[…]

Tariq and family

I enjoyed a wonderful long-term stay at this unit. It was perfect for me and my two young boys. The kitchen in large and fully stocked. The hosts have thought of everything someone might need and provided it. The large TV and home entertainment options are quite extensive. The neighborhood is a very quiet and Read more about Tariq and family[…]


My family and I came to San Diego to look for a house, as I start my new job here. We picked the perfect place. This unit is newly remodeled, so everything is brand new. It is packed with everything we could want. I love to cook, so having a fully stocked kitchen was great. Read more about Yoriko[…]


We had a very enjoyable two-week stay at the Gillespie House. Although it was a shared accommodation, we felt very comfortable from the start. By carefully selecting the tenant by the landlord, there were no complications locally and our initial concerns about renting a room in a shared accommodation were unnecessary. The accommodation is very Read more about Sara[…]

I recently spent one month with the hosts, a special couple, Michael and Dakee, and their sweet, very intelligent, three-year-old daughter, Pema. I was pleased to find such a reasonably priced home away so close to the lovely city of San Diego. Also, there is full access to the kitchen refrigerator & freezer, microwave and Read more about Linda Barnes[…]


This was our first stay and it went above and beyond my expectations! I had to book last minute for the thanksgiving holiday, and immediately was impressed with the fast reply! For the great price I wasn’t expecting much, just needed a place to sleep – but my husband and I were so thrilled! We Read more about Jessica[…]


This was the first time I have used Airbnb and it was an excellent stay. I stayed in Pema’s Studio for 2.5 months for an internship and had the time of my life. Being able to walk out of the door and seeing the city of El Cajon everyday was awesome. The view is breathtaking Read more about Jance[…]


Our house is being remodeled and my wife and I are so glad we picked this cozy unit to hide from the workers in. Very central and super cute interior. We love cooking, so having a fully stocked kitchen it really nice. The old-fashioned oven and stove look a bit out of place with the Read more about Herb[…]


The house is well set up for a long stay. Two bedrooms, good size closets, dresser drawers, washer/dryer, pretty well stocked and functional kitchen (pots, pans, appliances, utensils) dining table, comfortable beds and furniture, nicely decorated. This is an end unit in a condominium complex and was really quiet during our long stay. Far enough Read more about Guest[…]


I am a grad school student working on his PhD. I was looking for a study getaway for me and my girlfriend. The location was safe. There was a little noise outside at night as other residents would come home (which is expected, since the house is in a neighborhood), but all residents keep to Read more about Nima[…]
