Hillcrest cabin description

You'll love the natural setting what this quaint unique studio (with Queen murphy bed) offers. Meander down into the canyon through the secret garden to this magical bungalow and you will truly feel at home! Morning coffee will never taste better while sitting on the patio and listening to the abundance of birds and the rustling leaves of the trees and vegetation around you. This newly furnished and fully equipped cabin offers comfort, privacy and a unique experience to the traveller who wants 'something different'.

You will feel a million miles away even though you are only minutes from all the attractions that San Diego has to offer. You can walk to beautiful Balboa park and pass through the world famous San Diego Zoo on the way.

This quiet residential Hillcrest community has charm and an enticing historical and eclectic appeal. This studio has all the amenities such as full bath, washer/dryer and functional kitchen.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I grew up in New York and came out to San Diego to attend college many (many) years ago and I haven't left yet. I love living in San Diego and I love my house. I spend my free time growing veggies and working on my historical house.

Why the Owner Chose Hillcrest:
I didn't plan on living in Hillcrest but when I saw the house I knew it was for me. I am a cook and although the kitchen is small it works perfect. This home suits me perfectly.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
I love the neighborhood, the walking to everything lifestyle, hearing the zoo animals at night from my yard. The beautiful exotic flowers everywhere. Most of all the friendly people.
