Property description

A home away from home in North Park, #13 on Forbes' list of the 'hippest' neighborhoods in the US. This 1926 historic Spanish villa ('Villa Barajas') combines old world charm with designer style and modern amenities.

Two fully equipped, luxury suites (#3317 & #3321) are connected via a private vestibule, creating one floor-through apartment that accommodates up to 8 people. Each wing has 1 bedroom, 1 bath, kitchen with dining area and a full sized living room or sitting room. Perfect for families with teenagers, extended families, two couples (with or without children), and anyone who likes a bit of privacy and independence while still enjoying a shared accommodation.

The connected suites boast fully renovated baths, remodeled kitchens with high end appliances and stone counters, comfortable dining areas and living/sitting rooms, custom cabinetry, exposed brick, central heat/AC, dishwasher and washer and dryer. Beautiful original hardwood floors and new furnishings.

The building came on line in July, 2013 as a brand new renovation and we have received very positive reviews. Please see these listing numbers for the reviews submitted by guests who have rented individual units: 471900, 422746, 471897, 490105.

We enjoy providing 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 two 50mb WIFI networks in the connected suites -- nice and fast -- and 3 other networks in the building, all of which are accessible to all guests, so if a WIFI happen to go down, just tie into any one of the other 4!

Spacious grounds with gas grill, ping pong table and delightful seating areas. Walk a few blocks to Balboa Park, restaurants, cafes, golf, community pool, tennis courts, recreation. 5 minutes to downtown -- Little Italy, The GasLamp Quarter, Seaport Village, Convention Center, the famous San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park and museums, Old Globe Theatre. 10 min to beaches and other major attractions, including Coronado Island and Seaworld.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees and Rental Conditions:

  • Property Damage Protection $59
  • Check-out Cleaning $250
  • Refundable Damage Deposit $500
  • 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 with 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 Walk able neighborhood experience. And we are 10 minutes away from fabulous beaches!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
This building is thought to have been owned a century ago by a church nearby 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
