Property description

A home away from home, warm and wonderful in North Park, #13 on Forbes' list of the 'hippest' neighborhoods in the US. The feeling and ambiance of 1926 historic Spanish 'Villa Barajas' is both warm and modern.

The Bungalow Suite (#3317) is a large one bedroom, 1 bath, which sleeps 4 using the comfortable pull-out sofa in the large living room. Newly renovated with high quality finishes and cheerful eclectic style -- Mid century meets Deco meets vintage and reclaimed. Sunny, colorful, and casually elegant.

Beautiful original hardwood floors and large wood windows, cafe style eat-in kitchen, restored vintage stove with griddle, top line appliances, washer and dryer in suite, central heat/AC, deep Euro tub/shower in large, Deco style bathroom. Small private patio with bistro dining for two outside front door. New furnishings and backyard with grill, dining, ping pong table and lounge chairs.

We also provide amenities -- K-cup and French press coffee makers, beach towels, blow dryer, iron/ironing board, luggage rack, books and games, shampoo and conditioner, shower gel, hand soaps, other essentials. 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.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees and Rental Conditions:

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $250
  • Property Damage Protection $59
  • 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

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

Why the Owner Chose North Park, San Diego, CA, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
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.
