Property description

# 13 on Forbes' list of the 'hippest' neighborhoods in the US, North Park is a vibrant, diverse urban village with a life of its own. Conveniently located near terrific restaurants, cafes and nightlife as well as Balboa Park, San Diego Zoo, downtown San Diego and Coronado Island, this location can't be beat.

Our 1926 Spanish villa -- 'Villa Barajas' -- combines historic character with modern features. We restored this place for everyone to enjoy the kind of travel experience we most appreciate ourselves -- authentic local living, in luxury style, with the comforts of home! Serene, comfortable, private and yet so accessible to what's happening in the village!

The Baker's Suite (#3321) is a cozy, compact 1 bed, 1 bath (just under 400 SF), ideal for two, but can accommodate up to 2 adults with 1-2 children using the comfortable sofa bed. Overall, the feel is organic, clean lined, modern and very warm and inviting -- The French baker's table used for dining was made from reclaimed 19th century scaffolding.

Gorgeous original hardwood floors, exposed brick, fine cabinetry and furnishings, deep Euro tub/shower, central heat/AC, washer and dryer in suite, all new fully equipped kitchen and bath.

We also provide amenities to get your trip started the right way -- K-cup and French press coffee makers, beach towels, blow dryer, iron, luggage rack, shampoo and conditioner, shower gel, hand soaps, laundry detergent, paper products. The kitchen is fully equipped with cookware, dishware, utensils, spices...pretty much whatever you'll need. There is free WIFI and smart TV -- Stream Netflix and Pandora while you relax or enjoy a light meal in the suite.

Spacious grounds with gas grill, ping pong table and delightful seating areas. There is parking for your car on the property. Parking on surrounding streets also is free and typically available.

Walk just two blocks to terrific restaurants -- Italian, French, Mexican, Asian, Vegetarian, Sushi, Pizza -- as well as cafes, breakfast places, home-baked goods, micro brewery, wine bar. Enjoy "La Perla" gourmet tacos with a short or tall brew under the stars. The ramen/noodle house "Underbelly" hops -- there's communal outdoor seating around firepits that make this a lively social spot day or night. Our guests also love "The Smoking Goat" french bistro. A few blocks more and there's a weekly farmer's market (every Thursday), more wine bars, artisan pizza, Asian fusion, American/Californian, homemade ice cream...too many places to list.

With all this eating and imbibing, you may want to get your fitness fix as well, or tune up your mind/body connection, and North Park has yoga, pilates, dance, boxing, various full service gyms...there's even a pole dancing school, for the daring amongst us.

Then again, you're here to enjoy the outdoors, right?

So walk a few blocks to Balboa Park! -- community pool, tennis, golf, hiking and running trains, bike track, bocce court, picnic area, children's play area. On the farther side of Balboa Park, still walking distance (20-30 minutes) or a short ride, are San Diego Zoo, museums and Old Globe Theater.

Drive 5-9 minutes to downtown destinations or take the bus one block away (about 20 minutes with stops) -- The GasLamp Quarter, Little Italy, Seaport Village, Convention Center, Petco Park. Drive 10 min over the bridge to Coronado Island's beautiful beaches and the famous Hotel Del Coronado -- This is the best spot for a beach day, with a huge stretch of beautiful fine sand beach, a promenade for strolling or peddling along the water, beach chair and cabana cover rentals, peddle car rentals, oceanfront restaurants, lounges, cafes and shops. Or, drive 10-15 minutes to other central San Diego beaches (Mission Beach, Pacific Beach, Ocean Beach) and other major attractions, including Seaworld.

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 sophistication - we knew that we had to own it, renovate it - and then provide 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

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.
