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.

Quiet neighborhood, great owner.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying in La Mesa for a week, the location is a nice get away from the city, but does require a drive daily to see the sites. The pool area is awesome, grill with an outdoor sink, clean pool and hot tub, and plenty of space on the deck to eat and lay out in the sun.

The inside of the property is clean and has been updated some, could stand to be organized and detailed just a little bit. For example, the fridge isn't level and rocks back and forth...not a huge deal but it was a little annoying.

Jeff is a very nice man, laid back and easy going, cleans the pool every day and makes time to talk to his guests...thanks Jeff!

House was well-kept and everything needed for a comfortable stay was available. Owner was courteous and polite, and the location was great for a nice and quiet, relaxing weekend in San Diego.

Gorgeous and scenic with all the fun amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just left San Diego after a wonderful stay at this property. The owner, Jeffrey, is very attentive and nice. The property is beautiful and the view is gorgeous with Mt. Helix at the forefront of your view and lush greenery all around. The property has a fire pit, a small waterfall and lights everywhere that add to the outdoor ambiance. We enjoyed grilling out in the evenings. The spa was clean and so was the pool. Everything seemed to be a short drive away which worked out great for us. Overall, it was a great stay. I highly recommend this property!.

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

Me, my wife and my 2 kids, 7 & 12 really loved this place. It is only about 20 minutes or so away from the zoo, the Midway and the other San Diego attractions that we went to while visiting. My kids really enjoyed the pool, even though it was a little chilly; the hot tub made up for it though. Inside the home had everything we needed to feel comfortable. Jeffrey is a wonderful host and I would not hesitate to stay here again!

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.
