About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

This mid-century home is well appointed with beautifully restored oak floors, an open layout and light and airy rooms. Our charming duplex is well suited for both weekend visitors and longer staying guests, with one queen bed and two twins, washer and dryer, fully equipped kitchen, modernized bathroom, bed, bath and kitchen linens. The flat screen TV has a cable ESPN sports package, the Apple iplayer is iPhone 4 and 5 compatible, and free wifi access is provided.

There’s lots of natural light to enjoy the native plants in the beautifully landscaped yard. Our neighborhood Trolley Barn Park is just one block away with a playground and ample space for ballgames.

Centrally located in one of San Diego’s historic neighborhoods, University Heights is well known for its friendly feel, many restaurants, coffee shops and bars as well as other shops and amenities within walking distance. The Convention Center, Petco Park, Qualcomm Stadium and the beaches are also all within a 15 minute drive.

We have two bikes available if you prefer to cycle around this very pretty neighborhood, or visit nearby attractions like the Sunday morning Hillcrest farmers’ market on Normal St. Several of San Diego’s many attractions, including San Diego Zoo, Old Town, Balboa Park, museums and Old Globe Theatre, are nearby and within easy biking distance or a 5-10 minute drive.

The beauty of San Diego is truly outdoors. Our outside deck in the shade of a magnificent coral tree, with a complimentary bottle of California wine, is the very best place to relax as the sun goes down after a wonderful day’s sightseeing.

Beautiful Balboa Park is a must-see, don't miss the Outdoor Spreckels Organ Recital on Sundays at 2.00pm, and on the way drop by the huge Sunday farmers' market on Normal Street. We also love the many neighborhood restaurants, bars and coffee shops, especially Soltan Banoo, The Haven Pizzeria, Adams Ave Grill, Muzita Bistro and Monica's Coffee Shop.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are an expatriate Brit and a former New Yorker who enjoy living in San Diego. We love to travel, meet people and share experiences. To get the most out of our time away, when we take trips we always try to avoid 'corporate' and stay in B&B's and vacation homes.

Why the Owner Chose University Heights, San Diego, CA, USA:
This home appealed to us immediately because of its location, its walkability and the urban neighborhood experience. We can walk or bike everywhere and we are both a mere 10 minute drive or 20 minute bike ride from work.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
The exotic native plants and landscaping are very attractive features of this property. The front deck under the coral tree and shaded area next the bamboo stands in the backyard create wonderful spaces to eat, drink and relax outside with friends or in solitude.
