CASA BONITA 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath - This beautiful two story, spacious home and garden sanctuary with many windows, 2 fireplaces and wrap around balconies makes a cozy and magical setting for a getaway retreat.
The design and location of this home makes for a relaxing home base yet convenient and close to all of San Diego's beaches, main attractions, mall/cinema and restaurants (without paying beach rental prices). Set on a private road, you are surrounded by the sound of birds and garden views from every room of the house. If you are an artist or a writer or a couple wanting privacy this is the perfect space for inspiration and quiet.
For families and large groups, the 3 bedrooms accommodate up to 6 comfortably, however the house is huge with a large master suite, large living room and an additional basement carpeted area that has been used to sleep additional guests on a futon or sleeping bags over the years. We also have a comfortable mattress available for this area or for the living room meaning we can accommodate up to 10 guests total. This would be a great rental to host family reunions or teams traveling together or church groups etc.
Of course if you are only 1 or 2 people wishing to rent, you will feel like you are in a resort and can enjoy the home all to yourself at a discounted rate. Please contact us for details.
If you like cooking (or even if you don't) you will love this kitchen. Mom is an amazing cook and designed the kitchen herself with Mexican tile and a garden view. Many Mexican and Italian feasts have been served to big groups of guests here and the kitchen is fully equipped with all you need for creating your own meals and setting a lovely table. There is a breakfast nook that seats up to 6 and also a large dining room table within the kitchen area that seats up to 8. This makes for a lovely setting for families or friends who like to gather in the kitchen or cook together.
OUTDOOR AREA provides lots of room to move around or to relax on comfortable lounge chairs. We also have a grill 'hut' and a sitting area to enjoy meals. Different outdoor spaces also allow for separate areas to relax around the wrap-around, 2-level balcony to enjoy bird watching, reading, morning coffee or an afternoon cocktail. We also have a small tennis hitting wall - great for kids of all ages.
LOCATION: Our home is located in the Bonita/Chula Vista area, just a 15 - 20 minute drive from most of the famous attractions that America's finest city has to offer: San Diego's famous zoo, Sea World, Balboa Park, Knott's Soak City Waterpark, museums, beautiful beaches, boardwalks, hiking trails, night clubs as well as access to the Mexican border is just a partial list of what is nearby. A little further beyond are wineries, the desert, mountains and casinos - all are close enough for wonderful day trips. A car is recommended to access this property, however the bus line is just a few minutes walk away. Through the bus line, you can connect to the San Diego trolley (E Street is the nearest station) which connects you to many parts of San Diego. Heading south, the trolley line takes you up to the Mexican border and to the north it connects to the main Amtrak station in downtown San Diego.
