About julie christiany

Lived in this house for 11 years until we found out we were having twins and needed more space. Love this area so much we just moved 1.5 miles away. Native San Diego girl. Married Frenchman and have 3 kids, 1 dog, 2 cats and 3 chickens.

julie christiany purchased this house in 1993

Why julie christiany chose Sorrento Valley

Perfect area, only 4 miles to the beach and is sunny nearly everyday! High above the Penasquitos preserve where there is hiking and mountain biking. 15 minutes to airport and downtown. 1 hour to local mountains and 70 minutes to Disneyland and 30 minutes to US/Mexico border. Close to everything and if you do not want to drive, the Coaster is only 2 miles down the road, free parking and a short train ride to north county and to Downtown.

What makes this house unique

Less expensive that renting on the water and only 4 miles to the beach. about 1 hour to the local mountains. close to everything in San Diego, 15 minutes to the Zoo, Balboa Park and the airport. Also consider taking the Coaster, it is 2 miles from the property and it will take you to Old Town, Downtown and Del Mar. You can also take the trolly line from the Coaster to numerous San Diego sites. Large space for larger families. Save money by cooking at home, sure San Diego has great restaurants but it can be very expensive with a big group.

BEAUTIFUL home! Home away from home!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home! Centrally located for the attractions we had planned (Legoland, San Diego Zoo, La Jolla Beach, Seaport Village), we even ventured out to L.A. for a day. The owner has thought of everything, the kitchen was fully equipped to prepare meals, even stocked with milk, eggs and bread. The house was in great condition, clean and ready for us when we arrived. Julie was easy to communicate with and responded to all my questions promptly. I highly recommend this property to anyone planning a trip to San Diego. The house was perfect for 2 families (4 adults, 3 teenagers and one small child). The kids enjoyed the pool table and the Wii. The backyard is perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee in the mornings and/or a glass of wine in the evenings. The neighborhood is nice and quiet and the area is nice for a morning stroll down Sorento Valley. Definitely one of the nicest homes we have stayed in using VRBO.

House was exactly as pictured.

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house was perfect! Just far enough to "get away" and close enough to take a short drive into the popular areas of San Diego. My family ranged in age from 6 to 65 and everyone enjoyed a pleasant stay. When I reached out to the home owner, she responded immediately and was very pleasant and accommodating. The house had everything we needed from towels to dishes. Great house, great location, great host!

Breeders Cup Vacation

  • 5 of 5

8 of us shared this beautiful house. We had ample space and privacy if we needed it. We had everything we needed as far as bath and kitchen needs. We were there for the Breeders Cup races so we did not spend much time during the day at the house, but we did spend the evenings around the dining room and pool table.

We had a great time with great accommodations.

A wonderful house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this house in San Diego! Our group consisted of four families with young children (ages 2 to 7). There was ample room for all of us with extra mattresses, blankets, etc. for all adults and children. The house was clean, well organized, and the kitchen was sufficiently stocked with utensils, cups, etc. to meet all of our needs. The kids especially loved the small play room under the stairs! The weather was great while we were there so we took full advantage of the well manicured grassy backyard and the BBQ. The location of this property is perfect as it allows you to easily access the beautiful beaches of North County (Solano Beach, Encinitas, Carlsbad) and Legoland while also being very close to all that the greater downtown area has to offer (the Gaslamp district, Balboa Park, Coronado). The neighborhood was quiet, easily accessed via the freeway, and had ample parking. We can't wait to stay at this property again!

Couldn't have asked for more!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 (included my mother in law, my wife and I, our kids, one daughter in law and our grandson) all slept very comfortably on the wonderful beds and found the three very well kept bathrooms more than enough for all the gals to ready themselves for all the events we attended in town. The kitchen was very well furnished with all the tools we needed for full meals. Absolutely everything was at hand, even small things like scissors, tape, pliers, towels for the beach, the list could just go on. All that to say we could not be happier with the complete package that is this home. Our eldest son said it best "That place was awesome".
