About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6 (14 if also rent #588032)

This listing is for an ~ 1250 square foot townhouse which is part of a larger ~ 5,000 Sq. Ft. estate, that includes the lower level of my residence (which can also be rented at VRBO listing #588032). Both Vacation Rentals are completely separate, updated, freshly painted with: private entrances; beautiful bathrooms; 55' flat screens in the living areas (premium cable/smart TV); 32' flat screens in the master bedroom of each listing; separate washer/dryers. You have a fully furnished kitchenette/with granite counters/stainless appliances.

You look out on a beautiful kidney shaped, newly resurfaced pool, with a water slide and LED color changing pool light, hot tub, waterfall, deck, Travertine patio, BBQ island/bar/sink with a large built in gas grill & granite counter-top, fire pit with decorative glass rock. The pool is solar heated, thereby extending the swimming season. Patios/pool/outdoor areas are open ONLY from 9 A.M. to 10 P.M. The rental, including the patio/pool/outdoor areas, are for paying guests ONLY. If you wish to entertain non-paying individuals, do so at a location off the property. Large, 3/4 acre, fenced, private, property with fruit trees for you to enjoy/consume when in season (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, apple and lemon).

The property has stunning mountain and canyon views to the Pacific Ocean and Mt. Helix. Very private and tranquil. Outdoor aviary and occasionally I see a flock of wild parrots fly by or perch in the trees. There is only off street parking.

This Vacation Rental listing has 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms, sleeps 6 with two queen beds, two twin (trundle) beds, (and a queen inflatable air mattress if needed). For groups of 1 to 6, rent this one Vacation Rental listing. For groups of 7 to 14, rent both Vacation Rental listings. The base rent for each Vacation Rental listing covers the first two people staying in the listing. For additional persons (beyond two), staying in the listing, there is an additional $25 per person daily fee (holiday dates rates will be based on a minimum of six people). If you are able to write me a check for the total rental amount that I can receive within 7 days of making your reservation, you can avoid the VRBO service fee. The outdoor areas are the only thing you share with others staying at the property. Pets may be brought for a fee, upon approval.

Why Jeffrey Linn chose La Mesa

I bought this large home as I loved the views and it was suitable to house my multi- generational family. However, it ended up mostly being me and Lucy (my ten year old golden retriever). Therefore, I decided to share it with others. Although I'm biased, I think it is a beautiful place and I hope you can come and see it/stay a while.

Beautiful retreat with easy access to San Diego

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after dark, but everything was well-lit enabling us to navigate easily to the townhouse portion of the home. Two floors worked perfectly for us - giving each couple their own space. Wish we could have enjoyed the great outdoor space a bit more but we were on-the-go. Easy access to the freeway. Make sure you take a few minutes to go up to the top of Mt. Helix. Thank you, Jeffrey!

Great place with just a couple suggestions

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here and Jeffrey was a nice host. The side yard was great for our dogs to play in. All appliances seemed new and the place was very clean. A couple things that we wish were better are:

1) The hot tub was not on and the water was murky. I believe you need to run hot tubs constantly.

2) The pool was very clean but very cold. It is "solar heated" I took this to mean by solar panels but there was no heating at all. A bit misleading. We saw there was a heater onsite but either broken or unused. Bummed because this was one great draw to the property and we were unable to use it.

With those things aside, we would come back to visit and enjoy the beautiful view and easy access to San Diego.

Beautiful Views!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with children under the age of 7. The two bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect. Jeff, the homeowner, was friendly and fixed a couple of issues immediately. His dog, Lucy, is so sweet and great with the kids. The view of the home was amazing as it faces Mt. Helix. The pool was cleaned regularly but it was a bit chilly so the kids stayed in the hot tub. It worked out well. Also, we were conveniently located to the Zoo and SeaWorld (20 minutes each way). There were good restaurants and grocery stores nearby as well.

There were a couple of things that didn't have a major impact on our stay but it was minor. The pillow cases on the bed didn't look clean. We spent the first evening washing all the sheets. Also, whenever we used the hot water in the kitchen, the pipes would start to bang loudly. Everything else was great and we enjoyed our stay!

La Mesa, California VRBO

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property. It was completely redone and furnished with just about anything you would need. It was very clean. It had the most spectacular view of Mt. Helix. Would have spent more time on the patio (which is a shared patio) if it had been a little warmer. This was really a very lovely property and the owner could not have been more accommodating. Highly recommend!

Great views and cool location with pool/jacuzzi

  • 5 of 5

Close to highway with beautiful views of Mt Helix. Great space with privacy for 2 couples or more and with kids. Nice amenities to use outside when the weather is perfect. Owner gave us easy checkin instructions and was prompt with emails and concerns/questions. Highly recommend this cool hideaway. Short distances to the college, downtown, old town & balboa park.

Car: recommended

Mt. Helix has been called the La Jolla of East San Diego County. It is a high end area with many beautiful sprawling homes, that have spectacular views. One home is round and the whole home rotates. At the top of Mt. Helix is a park and amphitheater. Many weddings and wedding pictures take place at the top of Mt. Helix. There is a large white cross at the top of Mt. Helix that is lit at night. Large Easter Sunrise services is a long standing tradition there. Additionally, you can walk around the top of Mt. Helix and see San Diego County for miles. It is a must to drive to the top of Mt. Helix in both the day and night (spectacular night light show). My house has a bird's eye view of Mt. Helix, its beautiful homes and the cross.
