University Heights house description

The home is a charming early Twentieth century Craftsman (circa 1915) that has a usable front porch with seating and and spacious back yard area complete with a gas grill, shaded patio seating and herb garden (Mint, Chives, Basil,Thyme, Savory). Part of the joy of not staying in a hotel is doing your own cooking (for some people at least). An amazing Sunday farmers' market 4 blocks away in Hillcrest, grocery shopping (Trader Joe's, Ralph's, Sprouts market) are all within walking or biking distance. But when you are not interested in cooking, there are several great restaurants just 2 blocks away!

Each of the two bedrooms has its own queen bed. There is a pull out couch/ futon in the living room as well as an available portable single bed if necessary.

A gas assisted fireplace in the living room provides a little extra warmth and coziness for when the temperatures drop in San Diego (Yes, the temps do drop here on occasion) . An AC unit and a whole house fan allows guests to keep cool when the weather heats up.

We also have the home outfitted with a flat screen LCD TV with cable TV programming as well as Netflix, MLB.Com (provides all MLB games for baseball fans) and many other Roku channels in addition to an included WiFi network for internet access for our guests.

When you are ready to fire up the gas grill, it will be ready and waiting.

For any tiny vacationers, we have a pac-n-play, infant tub, highchair and toys.

We are proud to feature original art throughout the house from a local artist.

You can be assured that we will strive to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Thanks for looking.

              Car: Not Necessary

              University Heights is a neighborhood located in Central San Diego. It is adjacent to the neighborhoods of Hillcrest and North Park. There are a number of restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques and other eclectic businesses within walking distance of our home. University Heights is centrally located and allows visitors to explore the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park to the immediate South. The larger commercial district of Mission Valley sits in the valley below University Heights and the beaches (Ocean and Mission) are a short 15 minute jaunt to the west. Downtown San Diego and all it has to offer, is a short ten minute drive to the Southwest.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: Our family purchased the home as an investment in 2009. We recently decided to remodel the home and turn it into a vacation rental. The location is perfect for out-of-towners in love with (or ready to fall in love with) San Diego. We certainly have enjoyed living in SD both when we were young and single, then as a dating couple, and now raising our kids here.

              Why the Owner Chose University Heights:
              University Heights is full of unique restaurants and cafes and is close to Hillcrest, the downtown/Gaslamp district, Little Italy and Balboa Park. Our guests can take advantage of a great walking neighborhood where going out for a meal or coffee does not require getting into a car. For families with kids, Trolley Barn Park is an easy walk from the home. World renowned San Diego Zoo is less than 5 minutes by car. Our guests can also take advantage of the free summer concert's in the Trolley Barn park, Padres baseball at Petco park and beaches within a 15 minute drive from the home. The US/ Mexico border is approximately a 30 minute drive from the home for those wanting to explore our neighbor to the South.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              - Amenities for babies/ toddlers -An Herb Garden for those interested in cooking - Gas BBQ for grilling - Walking distance to local restaurants and Trolley Barn Park -very close to Hillcrest and its commercial district (Trader Joes, Ralphs, Whole Foods,etc) - The home has alot of unique charm and character and is situated in a terrific neighborhood
