We stayed in Maureen’s place for a month while we were relocating to San Diego. Maureen was a wonderful host. We really enjoyed her place. The place is in a nice and quiet family-friendly neighborhood just across from a small forested area. In general, there are many trees around as well as beautiful plants on the back deck. It is a short walk from a larger park with a playground, and a very short drive to other parks. It is very convenient to UCSD or to the beach as well (~20 minutes). The place is furnished with everything you might need for a long stay and has four bedrooms, almost all of which also have a desk. It is a very cozy home and I would recommend it to anyone!

We just completed a one year stay at Maureen’s home. We had a wonderful stay and already miss it! It was the perfect size for our family of 5 and had a beautiful outdoor space in the backyard that we used year round. The access to the Scripps Ranch Swim and Racquet Club was a great perk and one we used daily for working out and swimming. I loved riding my bike daily to work at Thornton hospital. Maureen was a great hostess and was very quick to respond to any questions we had. I highly recommend her home to anyone looking for a medium or long term stay in San Diego!
