Home to two poets, our place is truly an oasis in the city. Located just steps away from North Park's famous 30th St with its craft brew pubs and fabulous restaurants, you can also get away from it all by relaxing in a hammock on our private grounds.

Our chic and comfy 1925 California Craftsman house is in the heart of North Park—San Diego's hip, walkable, beer-afficionado and family-friendly neighborhood!

We're both poets and professors who travel often. We use Airbnb and have loved our experiences with friendly, easy-going hosts like us.


-There are 4 comfortable bedrooms:

-The house has 2 bright bedrooms—1 with a round king bed, and 1 with a full-sized futon bed, which can be folded up easily when not in use. (This is also a good room for the crib if needed, just let us know.)

-There is also a roomy studio out back with a full-sized bed, bookshelves, and entertainment system.

-And there's another full-sized bed in the funky refurbished 1940s Shasta trailer—complete with sitting area, closet, working sink, and wings!

-All our beds are very comfortable with 100% cotton sheets, plenty of pillows, and luxurious duvets with extra blankets.


-There are two bathrooms in the house + an outdoor shower.

-One full bath with bathtub & shower inside the house, near the main bedroom.

-One en suite half-bath with toilet & sink off the second bedroom.

-The totally private outdoor shower is out back behind the trailer.


-The completely fenced and xeriscaped backyard is totally private—great for grilling and eating outside, lounging in the two hammocks, and enjoying the always-wonderful sunny San Diego climate.

-A wood-burning fireplace in the living room and radiant heaters keep the house warm and toasty on the rare cooler nights.

-A whole house fan in the kitchen keeps the place nice & cool in a heat wave.

-Um, there's a hot tub under the stars.

It's a getaway retreat in the heart of the city!

-We also provide nice bath amenities such as organic shampoo, conditioner, soaps, & lotion, plus plenty of tissues, q-tips, cotton balls, & toilet paper. Hairdryer & iron too!

-Multiple viewing options include a projector with pull-down screen for film watching, a DVD player, and a flat screen Thunderbolt display for Macs.

-In the studio, you can access Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu Plus, PBS Kids, and any other channels available via Amazon Fire and Sling TV.

Polk House Rules!

•This is our home and we live here—please treat it as you would treat a friend’s or family member’s house.

•Quiet hours after 12 midnight on weekends & 10pm on weekdays.

•Please, NO parties, large gatherings, or events! Our house is almost 100 years old, and it’s just not equipped for the wear & tear of large groups. Our neighbors are close on either side and sound carries, so please be considerate and keep outdoor hang-outs to a reasonable level.

•Please keep it clean in the hot tub! Rinse off before entering, and NO funny business/bodily fluids etc. Seriously.

•Smoking is permitted outside only.

•General, commonsense care and respect for the property is expected and appreciated.

•Recyclables ONLY go in the big blue bins outside; the big black bin is for trash.

•Non-destructive friendly dogs are always welcome--but please notify us beforehand! We charge an extra $25 total per stay for pets for the extra cleaning involved. Please see the House Manual for helpful doggy details such as dog parks etc.

•We charge extra for extra guests (over 2) due to the preparation, resources, and clean up involved. Please be clear with us about the actual # of people in your group ahead of time, so our set up and pricing are accurate.

•Babies & toddlers under 3 stay free! Please let us know if you would like the Pack & Play crib set up &/or a high chair.

•Fun & relaxation are strongly encouraged ☺

If you have any questions or problems during your stay, we are ready to help! Thanks,

We're both poets & professors who live in San Diego & the Joshua Tree area with our pups, Ronald & Kiki. Over the past 10 years, we've moved all over--from Iowa to Virginia to Colorado--and are thrilled to have made our home in Southern California. We take pride in caring for our spaces and sharing them with guests. We love discovering favorite new spots near home, and new communities on our adventures elsewhere.
