Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We love homes, vacations, people, and customer service. Making people happy in beautiful environments is our 'thing.'

Why the Owner Chose North Park:
When we saw this building, with its old world charm and quaint sophistication- we knew that we had to own it, renovate it- and then provide with fabulous, beautiful, comfortable and 'cool' accommodations where people could relax, enjoy the Park, the Zoo, the many restaurants- all within the context of a local San Diego Urban Walk able neighborhood experience. And we are 10 minutes away from fabulous beaches!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
This building is thought to have been owned a century ago by a church nearby and resided in by church members or out of town visitors. It is a beautiful building and stands out as regal yet simple. This combination of simplicity and beauty attracted us. Additionally, we were inspired by a European vacation
