I stayed at Eric's condo in San Diego for a few days, and it's an absolutely fantastic place. The neighborhood has a lot of
good restaurants and bars, and the Kensington neighborhood, which I loved, is within walking distance,

Eric has a cool, stylish and cozy condo in a quiet area. It's a perfect starting point to explore the city or go to the beach
(the freeway isn't far away).

Eric was a wonderful host. He showed me some interesting sights of San Diego and gave me all the necessary information to
make my stay most comfortable.

I hope to welcome Eric in Berlin soon.

Eric's place has just been remodeled into a very suave and comfortable home. I would class this towards the luxury end of the HATW spectrum. We stayed here on a hospitality visit. Eric is a friendly open guy who went to great lengths to make our stay interesting and enjoyable. His suggestions included an amazing day hiking through a scenic park to the beach. We were honoured to meet him, his lovely partner and friends. Altogether very special.
