Newly renovated with high quality finishes and cheerful eclectic style -- Mid century meets Deco meets vintage and reclaimed. Sunny, colorful, and casually elegant.

WIFI and smart TV -- Stream Netflix and Pandora while you relax or enjoy a light meal in the suite.

We have a 50mb WIFI network in the unit -- nice and fast -- and 4 other networks in the building, all of which are accessible to all guests, so it's pretty much bullet proof service if your unit's network happens to go down.

About Beth Galdieri

We love homes, vacations, people, and customer service. Making people happy in beautiful environments is our 'thing.'

Beth Galdieri purchased this villa in 2012

Why Beth Galdieri chose San Diego

When we saw this building, with its old world charm and quaint sophistication- we knew that we had to own it, renovate it- and then provide fabulous, beautiful, comfortable and 'cool' accommodations where people could relax, enjoy the Park, the Zoo, the many restaurants- all within the context of a local San Diego Urban Walkable neighborhood experience. AND WE ARE 5 MINUTES FROM DOWNTOWN AND 10 MINUTES FROM FABULOUS BEACHES!

What makes this villa unique

This building is thought to have been owned a century ago by a nearby historic church and resided in by church members or out of town visitors. It is a beautiful building and stands out as regal, yet simple. This combination of simplicity and beauty attracted us. Additionally, we were inspired by a European vacation where we found quaint older buildings renovated with a mix of Asian, modern and European touches that made our vacation more enjoyable. We wished to pass these feelings on to others.

A great home base for our family's stay in San Diego!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed here for a week with our two daughters, ages 1 and 3. We absolutely loved the property and couldn't have had a better home base! It is clean, well-stocked, and close to everything. The owners were very friendly and responsive when we had questions and they also provided a high chair and pack and play for our youngest daughter. Having everything we needed made our vacation so much easier and more enjoyable. We would highly recommend this property and would return!

Great Price, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Villa Barajas was a near perfect spot for our family of 3. Close to so many things, very nice neighborhood, and well taken care of. If you like craft beer, there are loads of small breweries close by. Property manager was very helpful when we mistakingly locked ourselves out the first day. Only issue was that the upstairs tenants were loud, walls were very thin, so sleep was challenging.

Owner's Response: Unfortunate when a guest doesn't contact us with an issue that can be corrected. While some sounds of life may be heard in a multi-unit building, the few noise complaints we've received over several years have resolved to upstairs guests making too much noise, at all the wrong times. When we've been informed, we've ensured the noise ceased immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us. We're local, we want your stay to be perfect or very nearly so, and our rental coordinator also assists -- so we have you covered! Glad these guests otherwise had a great stay.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean apartment! Lovely and charming place that is very spacious. Nice quiet neighbourhood. Close to Balboa Park. Took Uber there to visit museums and do some hiking. Groceries and good restaraunts in the area. Great breakfast place a few blocks away at Cardamon Cafe and tasty pizza place on Grim street 5 blocks away.

Perfect stay in San Diego!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect location for visiting the city - it's central to all of the "must sees" in San Diego. The property is clean and spacious and has a wonderful backyard to sit and have a cup of coffee in the morning. There was plenty of convenient parking. We were able to connect to the Wi-Fi easily and cable TV was also available (although we didn't watch much TV). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. We would highly recommend this place to anyone who is planning a visit to San Diego.

Cool place in a cool neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a second stay at this apartment, and we will book a third for our next time in San Diego. The North Park location is ideal, a fun place to walk around and admire the bungalows and gardens of the neighborhood, as well as convenient to walk to a newsstand and get the Sunday Times. Also, there is easy access to the freeway(s) for getting north, south, east, and west. The apartment itself is immaculate with a kind of retro look to it. It is roomy and comfortable. Communication with the owners/manager is easy, with punctual responses to any questions we had.

Additional information about rental rates

Property Damage Protection $59
Refundable damage deposit $250
Check-out Cleaning $150
Tax Rate 10.5%

Rates in table are representative and may vary based on number of occupants and specific dates requested. Rates and minimum stays during holidays and special events, such as Comic-Con, are typically higher. San Diego requires that occupancy taxes be charged for stays of fewer than 31 nights (10.5%). Cleaning fee, insurance and refundable security deposit are additional. Rates are subject to change until reservation has been confirmed.

For stays of one month or more, we charge for bi-weekly cleaning, in addition to a final cleaning fee. This will not be auto-generated via a reservation request -- We will need to revise the quote to include the biweekly cleanings.

Many people ask about this: We include a third party damage protection policy in our quotes, which is a nonrefundable fee. The policy protects you and us. With the policy in place, we're able to charge a very low cash security deposit that covers minor damages (such as stained towels or linens or broken plates). The insurance policy covers more significant accidental damages (for example, to furniture, floors, appliances, counters, walls, mirrors, plumbing fixtures, lamps, window glass and coverings, other elements). The insurance also enables you to recover your security deposit in the event of a qualified incident. VRBO offers you the option of either purchasing the insurance policy we've quoted or paying an additional refundable security deposit equal to the coverage/face value of the policy. For example, suppose we are charging $250 refundable security and you opt NOT to purchase the insurance (which in this example has a coverage value of $1,500) -- Your new combined REFUNDABLE security deposit would be $250 + $1500 = $1,750. Please note that the price of the insurance policy and the coverage amount are subject to change.
