About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 12)

Take a walk back into history with our stunning 1923 Golden Hill Craftsman! Our house is a four bedroom, two bath beauty in the heart of the historic Golden Hill neighborhood of San Diego. Golden Hill is right in the heart of San Diego, minutes from the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, Downtown (including the convention center, Little Italy, & Gaslamp), SeaWorld, Coronado Island, and everywhere else you want to see. The house is full of character and a great place for families and groups to hang out while visiting all the best areas San Diego has to offer.

Our house is in a great neighborhood with a mix of single family homes, multi-family residences, and an all-around cool atmosphere. If you are looking for the bland, you won't find it here! The kitchen is large and updated and each a the dining room is large and accommodating. There's a large deck out back with a propane grill for your BBQ and a table and chairs to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Back inside the house, the four bedrooms are spacious and ready for you to enjoy a quiet rest.

Overall, our house is great for a family or multiple families, mature groups of friends, and those who want a spacious, high-character, and centrally located house to explore all the greatness of San Diego! It's not a good house for parties (bachelor/bachelorette) and events, so please plan accordingly.

Lovely Heritage Home

  • 4 of 5

This was the best of our three rentals during our last trip. This house was lovely! It is a beautiful, heritage home with gorgeous wood features. We visited the San Diego Zoo and SeaWorld during our stay, which were both a close, easy drive. The only negative comments are that there was no A/C, understandable (but uncomfortable) with the age of the home. There were ceiling fans and portable fans though. We appreciated access to laundry facilities, although it was often being used by cleaners for other rentals. The kitchen has had a lovely renovation.....we appreciated the ice/water dispenser on the fridge. However, it would be nice to see the kitchen outfitted with more items. Overall though, a beautiful, character home that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or to stay at myself again!

It had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 9 including Grandpa, hubby & I, 8 Kid’s ranging from 17-2 years. I was very pleasantly surprised to find a pac n play for the toddler! And an air mattress for the 5 year old. It was a warm weekend and, being from Phoenix, we were used to a/c, which the house doesn’t have. But the windows were all open, fans going in each room and we survived! We ate breakfast out on the patio enjoying the morning breeze. And we played games outside in the evening.

We had a great weekend and would love to stay at this house again!!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

My coworkers and I really enjoyed staying in this home. Very clean and comfortable and close to the Gaslamp district! We did have trouble fitting our rent a car into the garage but otherwise - would definitely recommend!

Good location, as advertised, and reasonable cost

  • 5 of 5

Owner response was immediate and informative. We had a few questions the first day and Nick got back to us immediately. Our party included two grandparents, two parents, two teens, and two younger children. Plenty of space for all of us. We had all we needed. The garage keeps one from finding a place on the street. We had a car but I noticed a bus stop across the street. A quiet neighborhood with shops within walking distance. It was on the airport flight path, but most of San Diego is on the flight path since the airport is not 20 miles away from the city centre as in many cities, and planes only seem to cross between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. We were not bothered by it. Overall it was a good price for a good location and the amenities. We would definitely consider staying again as a large group and would consider the area itself for only 2-4 persons if we did not need a large place. For me the responsiveness of the owner is always key to a rental and this owner was excellent.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our family of four (9 and 11-year-old boys) and brought my husband's parents. The house was clean and well maintained. We had a great time visiting the area and even tried Uber Eats for the first time after a long day at Sea World. There was plenty of space to move around and we enjoyed the stay!
