About the property

Location, location, location!!! And the best views in all of San Diego! Just five minutes from the airport, Gaslamp, Little Italy, Zoo, Balboa Park, Hillcrest, Convention Center, Old Town and Seaport Village. Ten minutes from SeaWorld, Mission Bay, Coronado and the beach. This charming 1920's home sits on a prominent street amongst million-dollar mansions (the famous Harper Topiary House is just two doors down) with a very spacious and open floorpan perfect for social gatherings.


The living spaces are very open and large to accomodate families who want to socialize and relax. The bedrooms are super comfortable and quiet with nice linens and amenities. The kitchen is well appointed, and almost every window throughout the home boasts a beautiful view. There's a private backyard with a hammock, BBQ area, and chaise loungers to relax in while sipping your glass of wine and watching the sun set over the Pacific Ocean.


There are two bedrooms with a queen-size bed in each room. The open living space is 700+ square feet and will accomodate an additional six people with a queen bed in the sectional sofa, a full-size futon, a queen air mattress and a twin air mattress. There is also an additional sofa , a chaise lounge ... and a two-person hammock in the backyard for those who prefer to sleep under the moon listening to the rustling of palm leaves ;)


Guests are able to access all this home has to offer except the detached garage and storage located in the basement of the home.


There is a combination lock so guests can arrive and depart at their discretion. If there is anything needed at all, do not hesitate to call.


This home is located in MidTown/Mission Hills so it is very safe and surrounded by multi-million dollar homes (see street photos). It is centrally located and ideal for those coming to see San Diego.


There are many wonderful restaurants, coffee shops and cafe's within walking distance. It is also just a short walk to the trolley stop which can take you downtown, to the stadium, and even to the Mexican border. UBER is easily accessible, and there's ample street parking for those with cars.

About Ronni Perks

My husband was born and raised in Ireland, while I was a Wyoming girl with dreams of seeing the world. We've been together 24 years and have enjoyed traveling the globe and also investing in real estate. We've both lived in San Diego since our college days and will likely never leave ... why would we? :-) Hosting is such a pleasure for us, as we thoroughly enjoy sharing this amazing city and our home with people who are here to relax, see the sites, and watch the unparalleled sunsets from the expansive deck.

Ronni Perks purchased this house in 2006

Why Ronni Perks chose Middletown

If you're looking for the true SoCal experience here in San Diego, this is the perfect home. It is what's referred to as a "California Bungalow", built in the 1920's with an architectural focus on cozy and private bedrooms, an open and expansive living area, and floor to ceiling windows to capture the ocean and night light views. The location could not be more ideal -- centrally located and less than ten minutes from the most popular tourist destinations.

Loved the View!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this San Diego house! We traveled with our daughter and son-in-law and our son so there were 5 adults. More than enough room for all of us. We also hosted a birthday dinner party for 9 with more than enough room and atmosphere for a great time. The views were spectacular, we had a different view every day and every time of day. We had the best spot in the City for sunsets. The photos don't do it justice. We had a great little backyard but never went back there :-). We were in walking distance of the Mission Hills quaint business district and enjoyed breakfast and dinner there after a nice walk through the neighborhood. We were centrally located and were able to get downtown, to the Zoo, out to Point Loma, to Coronado Island all within 20 -30 minutes depending on traffic. But, we always returned to this great house and it's view. The owner was available and responsive but we really only had a couple questions for her during the stay. Nice size washer and dryer available for our use. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect views, location and accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best stay here with our two kids. Loved the open floor plan, views and special touches (fresh flowers, ear plugs and sleep masks, and great toiletries)! The home was central to everything we did! Ronnie was an amazing host, accessible and went the extra mile for a special request that we had. If you’re considering this home, book it! You won’t be disappointed!

Amazing View!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for 2 days for my brothers birthday. It was the perfect location to go site-seeing, only a few minutes away from downtown. Little Italy and Old Town. Definitely will stay here again!
