About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8) & free parking and no booking fees

Centrally located community of Serra Mesa, sometimes called 'Birdland' because all the streets are named after birds. It is a residential neighborhood just north of Mission Valley, 1/2 mile from the entrance to Interstate 163 that connects to other major freeways, and about a ten minute drive to most attractions, downtown San Diego, Balboa Park, the zoo, Sea World, Qualcomm Stadium, Petco Park, Old Town, Seaport village, and San Diego International airport (SAN). It is 20 minutes to the Tijuana border and 30 minutes to Lego land, the Wild Animal Park, and several casinos. This is great central location.

Why John Skadberg Owner chose San Diego

This was our home before we moved 30 miles North of San Diego. We have refurbished house with tile throughout and added patio door to office/bedroom. Each room has cable and a TV and Wi-Fi is available throughout the house,.

What makes this house unique

Solar heated pool during swimming season and covered patio. The location is a prime advantage since your are about 10 minutes from most San Diego attractions but still in a quiet residential neighborhood. There is only one street in and out of area so there is no through traffic.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Great place for what we were looking for. Comfortable and clean. Nice backyard with pool and hot tub. We were able to have our friends over for a nice gathering. Private and nice neighbors as well. The house had everything and more that we expected.

San Diego trip

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly what we were looking for!! Beautiful, very warm and inviting place. Great neighbors. Very close to everything. The back yard was a beautiful oasis and very private. Plenty of space in the house, would love to come back and stay here again. Could sleep 10 if you had to.

The best vacation rental experience I've had!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of Comic-Con attendees (of slightly varying size, but 7 this year) has been renting a vacation home or condo for the past 3 years rather than deal with the difficulties of SDCC's hotelpocalypse. This rental has been the best so far, and we'd be overjoyed to stay again next summer. The pool and hot tub were great, and there was plenty of room in the house both when we just wanted to relax, and when we were running around like cartoon people juggling books, costumes, and schedules without getting in each other's way. Kim and John were very communicative and helpful, the rental price was excellent for the season and the amenities, and the whole thing was by far the most stress-free and enjoyable stay I've had.

Owner's Response: We try hard to listen to our guests and make changes that would make their stays more enjoyable. Our pool has been re-plastered, we installed two new ceiling fans and a new large wall AC. Because of the drought in California we have put a cover on the pool and replaced our front lawn with drought tolerant plants. The pool cover also keeps it warmer. Today July 29th it is 90 degrees. We have had to turn off the solar heat so it doesn't overheat. We don't get to review guests but all of our guests this summer including Amy have been great guests and we would love to have them return. John & Kim

San Diego vacation

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house was perfect for our vacation and we were able to sleep 7 persons easily. The pool was excellent, and perfect for chilling out after our long trip down from San Francisco. The location also enabled us to travel to most of the places we wanted to see within a short time, and plenty of restaurants nearby. The kitchen is fully equipped, and the washing and drying facilites excellent. The shower in the one en suite needed a little attention with door off the runner, and the shower rail in the seperate toilet area also needs attention.

Great Location and a Very Nice Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our party of 3 since we each had our own bedroom and bath. The pool was gorgeous although it was a little too cool to swim during the week we were there. We enjoyed sitting out by the pool and just having a glass of wine and talking. The kitchen is fully equipped, and you could prepare meals there without any problem. The area is very quiet at night with no airplane or highway noise. The house is in a great location, with most major attractions being only 10-15 minutes away, and the airport is a short drive also.

Owner's Response: The weather was cool outside but the pool was 93 degrees the day guests checked in (we had just removed cover for the summer) and 85 degrees the day they checked out. Pool will be over 80 for the rest of the summer. In the fall we will put a cover on the pool and keep it warm all winter. It did get down to 75 degrees this past February..
