We have just completed a total renovation of this historic duplex located in the quiet, residential neighborhood of Mission Hills. Relax on the beautiful, front porch and watch the world go by. Walk a few blocks to the trendiest new restaurants and coffee houses. Casa Montecito is in the ideal location to explore San Diego and all it has to offer. The chef's kitchen is a wonderful gathering place for friends and family, with all new appliances and furnishings. The private patio has a BBQ for your use. The master bedroom offers a king size Serta I-comfort mattress. Luxurious bedding and linens are a treat after a busy day. The 2 bathrooms feature new/vintage looking tile and marble vanities and fluffy, white towels. A new stackable washer and dryer is in the home. This is a downstairs unit with 2 private porches and 2 private patios. As this is a quiet neighborhood, Casa Montecito is not suitable for events and loud parties. Come and visit us!

We are native Southern Californians and on our 1st date 30 years ago we drove through the beautiful Mission Hills neighborhood remarking how we would like to live here someday! Now that we are both retired we have realized our dream.
Melinda purchased this House in 2016
Why Melinda chose Mission Hills
Casa Montecito is a historic home built in 1913. In 1923 it was converted into a duplex with upper and lower units. We reside in the upstairs unit. Mission Hills is a special place. A quiet, residential, walkable and safe neighborhood. We are sure you will enjoy it!
What makes this House unique
Close to all and walk or bike to restaurants and parks. Or sit on the front porch and enjoy the cool ocean breezes.

Beautiful home & great location!
My family of 4 had a wonderful stay. The house is very well-maintained, spacious and comfortable. We love the area, as it is a quiet neighborhood but walking distance to shops and restaurants. We absolutely LOVED the home and hope that it is available for our next trip to San Diego!
Thank you for the great review! We were happy to share Casa Montecito with your family! We would like to extend a 10% discount for your return visit.

A home away from home!
Loved everything about this accommodation!—The house itself has been beautifully updated; decor classy, yet comfortable. Bedrooms spacious, beds comfortable, nice bathrooms, great living and dining area—which can accommodate 10 nicely (we had family/friends over for a couple of meals.)
The location—What’s not to like about San Diego?!—this Mission Hills area is the best for relaxing; Quiet neighborhood with easy walking to coffee, restaurants and shops; short drives to many popular attractions.
Bob & Melinda were most gracious hosts—friendly and attentive to any need.—Thanks so much for sharing this gen!
Great property. Very clean and pretty property.
House was great for our girls trip stay. It was very clean, Melinda was great to work with and everything was just as pictured. It is a main level rental with an upstairs that the homeowner occupies which it states on the site. You can hear them walking around above you, but other than that it was perfect!
Comfortable with first-class finishes
This is a spacious, historical home that has been renovated with high-quality finishes, especially in the bathrooms and kitchen. It is very clean and in excellent condition. Renters use the entire main floor and the owners live on the second floor but there is absolute privacy and no inside access between the floors. The fireplace in the living room is wood (duraflame) burning. The owners provide an excellent guide to the local area pointing out many places within walking distance. We look forward to staying here again someday.
Amazing house and neighborhood
We had such a fun stay at casa montecito. The house was plenty big for the three of us and we loved the location. I would definitely recommend this rental property to anyone staying in the San Diego area. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is because in the master bedroom the blinds did not blockout any morning light and it would be nice when on vacation to sleep in a little bit but other than that the house was awesome! Thanks Melinda and we would definitely want to come back soon.
The home was absolutely beautiful. It was very well appointed and had everything you needed. In comparison to a luxury resort, I'd have to say that this rental exceeded in comfort, space, location, and relaxation. Everything was a five star.
Casa Montecito is in the best location to experience San Diego! We are minutes away from the major attractions; the famous San Diego Zoo, Sea World and Balboa Park, beaches, downtown and Petco Park, Mission Bay, La Jolla and Coronado. We will leave you a list of our favorite places and restaurants. Uber is a great way to get around if you do not have a car.
