This residence is wonderfully located: walking distance from Downtown S.D., Little Italy, and world famous Balboa Park (less than a 10 minute walk in each direction). I love taking a morning walk through Little Italy as the merchants are busy cleaning their sidewalks and setting up for the day, passing through downtown while most of the city is sleeping, walking along the Embarcadero to smell the fresh ocean breeze, and ending in Seaport Village or somewhere in between for a hot drink and people watching. If i had the time to enjoy the day I would wander up to Balboa Park. With a huge collection of museums, beautiful gardens, and the World Famous San Diego Zoo this could be your entertainment for your entire stay! In the evenings I love to relax on the porch, watch the planes land, and then take a walk down to one of the great restaurants in Little Italy or the Gaslamp... somewhere with outdoor seating to watch the sunset. There's always something going on whether you want to hear live music, see some comedy, or immerse yourself in art. (As you can see I love my city... if you need suggestions for things to do in walking or driving distance feel free to pick my brain. I am a San Diego native. We have great opportunities for indoor and outdoor entertainment.)
The living room and front porch have wonderful views of the San Diego Bay. The home is beautifully preserved with its original architecture and design of the late 1920's. The entire house has beautiful wood built ins and decor. The living room has great windows (triple- paned), original stained glass, and a fireplace. The 3rd room that can be used for sleeping is the media room. It has wood blinds, a great view of the bay, and a daybed with a separate pullout bed underneath.
BONUS: Anyone staying for more than a week will get a complimentary cleaning every weekend.
The main bathroom as well as the European style service bathroom are both showers only. Sorry, no bathtubs.
This house was listed on this and other vacation rental sites by the previous owner. So if you think you stayed here before (and loved it) you probably did! I strive to have you love this little gem of San Diego as much as I do. Feel free to let me know if there is anything i can do to personalize your stay and make it unforgettably wonderful!

About Ruth Haller
As a San Diego native I have lived and worked within 10 miles of this house for most of my life. I am passionate about all I do: I teach kindergarteners to love learning, I love traveling and hiking, and I love being a foodie, a movie buff, and a 'staycationer' with my lovely daughter and our young pup.
Ruth Haller purchased this House in 2017
Why Ruth Haller chose Park West
This property has been owned by a dear friend, a second mom, for the past 30+ years. As she decided to start her life in a new city, I couldn't imagine not being able to feel at home in the house that holds such dear memories for both of us. So this year I was fortunate enough to be able to buy it from her. (Love you Max!!! XOXOX)
What makes this House unique
I think I already mentioned most of my favorite aspects of this home, but to specify... please enjoy the following: walk to great restaurants and Balboa Park, enjoy fantastic views, relax on the front porch or the swing on the side of the house, take in the beautiful architecture and interior woodwork (especially the wood checkerboard ceiling in the dining room and wood built ins throughout.)

Wow, where should we start? My wife and I have been visiting S.D for 30 yrs and this last trip from 4/13/18-4/16/18 we celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary and found our new favorite high end but with old charm VRBO rental. 10" base boards throughout, charming decor and great scents welcomed us as we entered, no old wood smell here. It is .3 miles from the center of little Italy, 1.5 miles from Snooze, which is our favorite breakfast spot and .9 miles from Balboa Park. Ruth is such a kind host leaving us multiple bottles of wine and snacks and we both wish the most success to her on their new investment.
We are 46 yrs old, we had a newly married couple join us who are in the early 20's for Sat and 2 of our good friends both in their 30's joined us as well. All of us loved this highly modern craftsman home. It is literally the most beautiful home in the area and has an awesome porch that we all sat out on and enjoyed the planes flying directly over us. They do stop from around 12am-6:45am and you do get use to them and even enjoy sitting out and watching the planes while having drinks and watching the sunset directly in front of you. The bay views are much better than the pictures and you can see the entire bay while sitting on the porch.
After walking to dinner in Little Italy 2 of our evenings, Bencotto one evening and Crack Shack another, we all met on the porch to enjoy drinks and music after waking back home.
Wood floors throughout the entire bottom floor that is all yours while there are 2 single units upstairs, each with 1 gentleman who were both really nice, even a dog named Wesley who is so obedient that he waited to be invited briefly into our space before coming in.
The beds are so comfortable and having a high end bed at home, the 2 beds here were right up there in quality and comfort. Our 2 friends stayed in the media room, 1 on the built in sitting area that was also very comfortable and roomy and the other on his crash pads on the floor.
The second bathroom was so unique, faucet, toilet, and shower all inside a 4x4 room. The guys enjoyed using this area since we have never seen anything like it while the girls loved the other more classic style bathroom.
Thanks again Ruth for making our trip so comfortable and memorable. We wish you all the success knowing that you invested a substantial amount of money into this home which ultimately made this visit our best visit.
