About Owner / Property Manager

I'm a Navy veteran currently supporting the DoD and Fleet as a computer scientist. I have lived in San Diego for the past 15 years after raising two children in Phoenix. I like meeting new people and learning new things. Hillcrest and San Diego has much to offer in that regard and I am thoroughly enjoying this phase of my life.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this bungalow in 2016

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Hillcrest

My neighborhood offers much. Its natural setting and hilly, winding streets, resembles Hollywood Hills while the architecture, though thoroughly San Diego/Southern California, also includes aspects of the southwest, and one of my favorite places, Santa Fe, NM. The house is newly remodeled, but what really attracted me, was its expansive views of the canyon below (60-70 feet deep). It's the perfect respite from my busy life.

What makes this bungalow unique

It lies in close proximity to downtown San Diego, Hillcrest, with its locally owned cafes, bistros and shops , Balboa Park as well as the harbor. It's a great getaway!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! It was clean, comfy, and it had everything you could need. The back deck was great for morning coffee and eating meals. The front bedroom was a little hot, not sure if the fan was going in the correct direction. We walked every morning to grab coffe and bagels and many restaurants within walking distance. He did ask us to feed the outside cat (Bing). We didn't mind, we love animals and he was a pretty cool cat. He had a washer and dryer and we also borrowed his boogie board. You can hear the planes, but it wasn't really that loud. My only complaint is the parking. Pretty tight street and we probably shouldn't have brought our truck. If you have a smaller car you could probably get it in the garage. We will definitely be going back!

Owner's Response: Mike, Marisa, Glad you had a good time staying at my home and exploring the neighborhood and are planning on making a return trip! Also, appreciate you didn't mind feeding and watering 'Bing' - I have since made arrangements for the neighbor girl to take care of him. My apologies for asking you to do this. Regarding parking, it can be tight navigating the street and using the garage. The garage is small, but it fits my car (a full size 4-door sedans) - you have to be a bit careful entering and leaving but is definitely doable as I haven't scraped my car since buying the property. Thank you for leaving the house clean - I really appreciated that! I look forward to your return! Sincerely, Rob Lord

Property is located in a quaint, affluent neighborhood. The house sits on a large canyon, perfect for bird watching. Other properties may say they are canyon rim - this one really is. A family of hawks uses the canyon as part of their hunting range - I've witnessed their eating habits from my deck.
