Why Mick or Lynn Williams chose Altadena

Recently remodeled, great location with restaurants within walking distance, located between South Park and North Park on the east side of Balboa Park, San Diego

What makes this house unique

Thorn Street Brewery is a block away, next to a Texas BBQ. The BBQ is not advertised but popular, and the food very tasty.

There's small market within half a block, barber, hair dresser on a quiet street, in an out of the way back block of North Park.

Dockless bikes (Limebike and Ofo) are usually within a block or so.

Epitome of hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

This is easily one of my favorite rentals ever! The home is beautifully decorated and the owner has been so thoughtful in anticipating what a guest might need so that you feel so well cared for. It was unusually cold when we visited San Diego, but the heater was very efficient and there were cozy throw blankets and coffee, tea, and cocoa, so it was very pleasant curling up in the evenings. And the backyard was so lovely that when it was just a bit warmer, we happily had breakfast on the patio. Everything about this home is high quality!

The North Park neighborhood is also great, with plenty of good restaurants and coffee shops nearby. Very convenient location to Balboa Park and the zoo.

We will definitely try to stay here for our future visits to San Diego.

Great location for exploring San Diego

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of four visiting the San Diego area for three nights. The home suited our needs perfectly. The location is in an area called North Park which is conveniently located close to downtown and the airport; North Park offers many local choices for eating and shopping. The owners provided an information sheet for us which highlighted some of their favorites. There is a Von's grocery store within a short drive.

The home was very clean and well decorated. The pictures are representative of the home; the backyard is large and provides an nice area for outdoor dining/relaxing.

The owners were very easy to work with, readily available for questions, and gracious throughout our stay. We would definitely stay here again!
