Mission Hills house description

The summer calendar is now open! We are taking reservations for late May and June - August. Please note that we are already booked for ComicCon week.

Our home is located in the upscale Mission Hills neighborhood, just above Old Town, and features breathtaking views of San Diego Bay, Coronado, Downtown San Diego, Point Loma, the San Diego airport and the Pacific Ocean. Centered within minutes of the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Balboa Park, Mission Bay and the airport, this home features easy access to all the great sites of San Diego.

The home features an open floor plan with lots of natural light, a recently remodeled gourmet kitchen and an enclosed garden/patio. The home has three bedrooms and two baths. The master has a king-size Tempur-Pedic bed, the second bedroom has a twin bed in addition to a pull-out sofa bed, and the third bedroom has a queen-size bed and blackout shades. The home features expansive views of the city and bay on one side and a private garden on the other, perfect for outdoor dining and relaxing.

Mission Hills is one of the oldest neighborhoods in San Diego which means you'll see great old Craftsman-style architecture as well as post-war modern design. The neighborhood has a good community feel, but with a cool urban vibe. The area is very safe and families take great care of their homes here. We are within walking distance of several good coffee shops and restaurants and short drives to even more good dining options. Upon entering the home you can expect some freshly baked cookies waiting for you. We have also written a comprehensive guidebook which will give you many great dining ideas as well as site-seeing suggestions beyond the obvious.

My husband and our children lived in this house for 18 happy years so it is more than just a rental property to us and as such we maintain it with great care. If you stay you will find it well-furnished and extremely clean. For families traveling with children, we know how stressful that can be so toys, books, bedding, highchair, stroller, pack 'n' play, and baby bathtub are all available free upon request. And if you need anything else, we're still in the neighborhood, just a few blocks up the hill and available to help you or answer any questions.

San Diego is a wonderful city and Mission Hills is a special neighborhood. Like you, we love to travel and regularly use VRBO and HomeAway to secure our accommodations, so we are sensitive to making your stay the very best possible.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1994

                  About the owner: We are both native San Diegans who have traveled the world but still call San Diego home. Dave works at a local life science company while Laurie is busy raising our two daughters. We spent the better part of 18 years restoring and improving this house and now enjoy sharing it with others.

                  Why the Owner Chose Mission Hills:
                  After growing up in other areas of San Diego, we chose Mission Hills as offering the best combination of charm and central location to be found in the area.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The house is a post-war modern with an open, airy feel that's perfect for the San Diego climate. But what really sets the house apart are the stunning City / Bay / Ocean views which are virtually unparalleled in San Diego.
