1 bed/1 bath modern duplex home lives like a single family
Cozy, modern craftsman 1 bed/1 bath duplex unit (part of a 2-unit house) lives like a small single family home. The home is fully private from the other side of the duplex. My house has central a/c & heat, a fully-equipped modern kitchen and bathroom.
The house is located in the Hillcrest neighborhood - with easy access to shops, restaurants, and bars of Hillcrest and North Park, the San Diego Zoo, and Balboa Park.
The living room has a small desk with chair, a small sofa and matching side chair, TV and table lamps with an area rug. The kitchen has a range/oven, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, toaster oven, Keurig coffee maker, and electric hot water/tea pot. The bedroom has a California King bed with synthetic down comforter and 4 king pillows. The private back patio has 2 chairs and a lounger with cushions, with 2 small side tables. Accent lighting on the back patio available for evenings. The single bath has a tub and shower with glass (no door, as pictured).
Note on window coverings: the living room and bedroom have curtains but the bedroom will not be completely dark during daylight hours because of the skylight (frosted but light will come through). The kitchen and bathroom do not have window coverings, but the bathroom window is frosted.
1 off street parking space in driveway will fit most small to medium cars and small to medium SUVs. Large SUVs and full size pickup trucks will not fit in in driveway.
Guests will have access to full private home, private outdoor patio, and washer/dryer.
Marston Hills sits between Hillcrest and North Park on the north edge of Balboa Park. You are a 10-15 minute walk from several grocery options and bars, restaurants and shops in Hillcrest. The Zoo is within walking distance or a short drive. Ocean Beach is 20 minutes drive, and downtown San Diego (Gaslamp, Little Italy, Embarcadero, etc) are under a 10 minute drive.
Uber/Lyft are easily accessible in this area all day/night.
Note: I do have a Welsh Terrier (dog, 20lbs) who lives in the space when I'm there. He does not shed and is very clean, but just FYI so you know there is a dog here part time (NOT while you're a guest in the space). The neighbors in the duplex (separate private space) also have a dog - which is contained to their side of the duplex (inside & out).

Cozy, comfortable and quiet.
The house was well appointed, clean and comfortable. Nice quiet neighborhood- close to restaurants and groceries and just minutes from downtown.
Rob, thank you for being a wonderful guest; you left the place like you hadn't been there! Safe travels and welcome back anytime.
Cozy place right around the corner from Balboa Park
Wonderful place that was close to Balboa Park and most major sights in San Diego. The home was beautiful inside and out and had lots of amenities. Paul was great with communicating and staying in touch. Great place if you’re in town for some sights or just want to relax.
Hi Brian, thanks for the review. You were a fantastic guest and would love to have you back anytime. I’m glad you enjoyed your trip.
We loved this cozy spot. It was spotless, well furnished, perfect touches and the bed was very comfortable. My boyfriend loved the heated towel racks. Thanks Paul!
It is super close to Balboa Park, and walking distance to restaurants and bars. And a very friendly neighborhood. We had a fantastic time!
Thank you so much for the kind review! I'm very glad you enjoyed the space and neighborhood.
You were wonderful guests and I'd love to welcome you back anytime. My neighbors also mentioned meeting you in passing, and were very complimentary.
Definitely would stay here again
Great communication with the owner. Awesome location. Walking distance to Balboa Park. The bed sleeps great and I can’t say enough about the pillows!!! Truly a fantastic place for a couple to enjoy.
Thank you for the review! I’m glad you enjoyed your stay and would love to have you back anytime. Cheers, Paul
Fabulous spot at Balboa Park - Great location, cozy, clean
Wonderful stay! Paul was a fabulous host. The House was cozy, clean, and full of amenities. The house was easy to find and entry into the house was simple. We arrived to find a bottle of wine and some local beer in fridge. We stayed for a week and we felt like we were home. Nicely furnished and comfortable. The location is fantastic. On the north side of Balboa Park close to neighborhood restaurants - it was a great spot close to everything.
Teri, thank you for the review and I’m glad you enjoyed your visit. Thank you also for taking such good care of the house; I’d love to have y’all back anytime. Cheers, Paul
