Property description

Our one bedroom condos feature fully stocked kitchens with everything you need to prepare breakfast, a light snack or full, sit down meals. The dining rooms have seating for four and are open to the living rooms where you’ll enjoy a wide screen LCD TV, a DVD Player and a deluxe futon couch which opens to accommodate a 3rd and/or 4th guests on a queen sized Tempur-Pedic mattress. The bedroom is furnished with a super comfortable queen-size bed with a Simmons BeautyRest mattress. The bathroom has a combo tub/shower and includes towels & toiletries. Please let us know if you require additional furniture for your baby or infant. We can provide a baby crib & a highchair for a one time $25 setup fee.

The Mission Hills Condos are situated on a hill overlooking San Diego with views of the bay and beyond. Please Note: with its convenient location near downtown, the airport, and the highway, this property is not well suited to guests sensitive to city noise.

This charming, “Spanish inspired” beauty is adorned with Terracotta & colorful Mexican tile accents and is surrounded by palm trees, giant “Birds of Paradise” and bougainvillea creating an intimate and tranquil setting. Step through the lush, tropical garden to access the courtyard with gas BBQ grill, a table and chairs, dine al fresco with a beautiful sunset as your backdrop. This property also features a laundry room for our guests. Mission Hills is the most sought after neighborhood in Uptown -- close to everything San Diego has to offer, but away from the hustle & bustle of downtown and the crowded beach communities. It’s a place us locals “love to come home to”.

There are a dozen restaurants within a 5 to 10 minute walk of the condos. The nearest trolley station is just half a mile away (a 10 minute walk) which provides quick access to Little Italy, the Maritime Museum, USS Midway, Seaport Village, Horton Plaza, the San Diego Convention Center and Petco Park. Heading the other direction, the trolley stops in Old Town, shopping malls in Mission Valley and to Qualcomm Stadium (home of the San Diego Chargers). Catch the bus just one stop “up the hill” to the corner of Washington & Goldfinch for even more restaurant choices. You’ll also find a Vons and Albertson’s grocery store at the next bus stop (Washington & Dove).

Mission Hills Condos are:
5 miles to Ocean Beach
6 miles to Mission Beach
7 miles to Pacific Beach
8 miles to Coronado
10 miles to La Jolla

The condos are so conveniently located, many of our guests skip the rental car altogether and get around on foot, using public transportation (trolley and bus lines), or tap into car2go and UBER to get around town. For our guests arriving with a car, we provide one off-street parking space in the driveway for each of the one bedroom units, and there is plenty of free, unrestricted on-street parking in front of the condos.
