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, one with a gas firepit. 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.

A Gem of a Property in Mission Hills
Superbly renovated property nestled in a clean and quiet neighborhood. Communications with the Melinda was quick and responsive. The property is immaculately clean and equipped with nice amenities. Perfect space for two couples. It is relatively close to the airport and the downtown San Diego area. We had a rental car, but UBER and Lyft is 3-4 min wait time to the property and was very inexpensive...we used them a few times to avoid parking downtown. Closet space is huge in Master Bdrm, but very limited on hangers...suggest owners provide several more. This beautiful home and location (Mission Hills) will definitely be my first choice when I visit to San Diego again. Don’t hesitate, reserve now!
Thank you Jay for the kind review! We hope you will visit us again. Thanks for the tip on more hangers.....we will get more in there right away.
We enjoyed our stay immensely in this lovely home. It was clean, organized, very comfortable, had everything we needed, well decorated and was in a nice neighborhood. We would definitely stay there again.
Beautiful heritage home, central to everything! Wonderful hosts!
Look no further, you need to stay here. This beautiful home is in the best location. It is central to everything, Coronado, The Zoo, SeaWorld, Old Town, the Padres, USS midway, Belmont Park and all beaches! The hosts are so lovely and have just about everything you could want or need. The beds are super comfy and the bathrooms are beautiful, so is the kitchen! I loved sitting out on the porch on the evenings and getting a lovely ocean breeze after having dinner outside in the garden. I can’t say enough about this place, we would have stayed longer if we could have. We will definitely be back!
Beautiful property, beautiful location!!
This was one of the most awesome properties we have ever stayed in! It's in a wonderful neighborhood and we walked for hours exploring everything and everywhere!!
The house itself is a delight to be in and around! It is a beautifully furnished and landscaped historic home...It has a large kitchen area where we spent lots of time cooking, conversing and hanging out! The dining and living room areas are cozy, spacious and very comfortable. The bedrooms and bath area make you feel right at home! There is also a relaxing front porch, where we watched the world go by, while having our morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening! The side of the house has a nice outdoor patio area, where we grilled out and relaxed most nights....
Bob and Melinda are wonderful hosts and make it known that if you need anything, they are there for you!! (Thank you!!) Can't wait to return to this beautiful house and wonderful area!!
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!
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.
