About James Morrison

I love to travel and this service seems like a great way to subsidize my passion for exploring new places. I'm a young professional who has slightly more house than he needs so I'm happy to help others stay in and explore my home town of San Diego.

James Morrison purchased this house in 2011

Why James Morrison chose Mission Valley

I bought this property in 2011 when I could actually afford to buy something. I was living in Orange County but really missed my hometown of San Diego. I'm in real estate and so I knew that if I didn't seize the chance to buy then it would be a long time before I could afford a home like this again, so I bought. What I liked about the house was the large lot it was on and that the house was the perfect size for me. Additionally, I'm back to being within 5 minutes of my immediate and extended family who also live in Bay Park and Point Loma. I went to both high school and college in this area so I definitely consider it home. Since I've purchase the property I've made many upgrades to it including the following: new flooring, crown moulding, brand new bathrooms, and a new mantle piece. I hope you enjoy all the upgrades.

What makes this house unique

I would say the main benefit to this house is it's proximity to so many wonderful attractions San Diego has to provide. One could argue that it is located in the heart of San Diego.

Additionally, it's near the trolley line (5 minute walk) and the neighbors are super friendly.

Thanks Jimmy for sharing your wonderful home with us!! The house was exactly as you describe it, except for mentioning what awesome neighbors you have.. Your house was close to the naval base and several of the tourist attractions.. Loved Spencer the cat!!

Great time in SD

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time together at the house. It is in an awesome location and we were able to get to everywhere easily. Jimmy welcomed our furry family members and checked on us right away to make sure we settled in fine. The front yard has a gate but it doesn't close, so we bought a tether for the dogs so they didn't get out in an unfamiliar area. The tether stretched into the doorway so there were no issues of them getting out unexpectedly. We brought a scooter for my daughter to ride and she was able to ride up and down the street without reservation. The home is beautiful and comfortable. It was a great time. We did the Crazy Dash Adventure which was fun to get around downtown San Diego and see things we might not have seen - it was a great afternoon and good exercise!! (walking tour of downtown). Highly recommend staying at this VRBO... great experience.

Comfortable stay and perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We (4 adults and 2 kids under 5 yrs) had a great stay at this little cottage. Perfect location - walkable to the trolley and park with play structure just around the corner. House was comfortable for the 6 of us although we were mostly out and about. I had to contact the owner, Jimmy, during our stay and he was always quick to respond and very helpful.

Everything we could have hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

the house was in prime location, close to the transit stop, and adorable! We had a great time staying there. Jimmy was so welcoming and kind. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to stay in a central location like Mission Valley!
