Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

We welcome you to our lovely 109 year old home in historic Golden Hill, San Diego. We think that you will find this to be a perfect getaway to feel pampered and just a little bit special. Take in the lush tropical gardens of your own private backyard while sitting outside on the patio. Relax with a cup of coffee or tea on the back deck, breathing in the sweet scent of jasmine (blooming starts as early as April and as late in June).

The house sleeps up to 6 people ( 2 bedrooms and a sleeper sofa in the living room), seats 6 at the dining room table, with additional dining space on the deck, or on the patio in the garden below. You will also have your own private driveway.

The neighborhood has many good restaurants and cafes within walking distance. Enjoy a cappuccino and a fresh pastry, or sandwich on their own homemade bread at Influx coffee house. Head up the hill on Broadway to the lively Humbertos for some Carne Asada burritos, fish tacos and great local flavor. Or, go to our favorite quaint bar, Counterpoint, that serves wonderfully creative dishes, a variety of wines, and taste the draft beer from some of our local breweries.

Taste of our nightlife, with it's live music and nightclubs, many wonderful cuisines and restaurants to choose from, less than a mile away to be a part of the scene at the Gaslamp Quarter of downtown San Diego. If you're a sports fan, enjoy the Padres. Ever visit Comicon at the Convention Center? It's all right here!

Are you bringing your furry companion (species 'dog'/ 'canine') along? Make sure to visit 'dog beach' on beautiful Coronado Island for some romping in the surf. He/she will thank you! The best dog park in San Diego is also nearby. Head up to the Grape Street dog park with your pooch, and sit outside while you enjoy a warm scone with jam at Rebecca's. You will thank yourself!

The beauty of the Golden Hill neighborhood is being so centrally located. The bus line stops half a block away from your home and you have easy access to all the major freeways.

Like Pandas, or fantastic colonial Spanish architecture, fountains, museums, beautiful sweeping landscapes and vistas? You're in luck, only 5 minutes away is the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park.

Don't hesitate to kick off your shoes and sit back to watch something on the flat screen TV in the comfy living room, or chill listening to your favorite tunes that you can stream from your phone. Swing open the french doors off of the dining room , and feel that perfect weather that San Diego is all about!

Everything that you could need in a kitchen is at your fingertips, whether you're making a piece of toast, or grilling a gourmet dinner on the gas grill. You might want to pick a lemon growing in the back yard to flavor your cup of tea, or brighten a marinade for that nice piece of fish that you caught while surf fishing. Good thing there is a washer and dryer, a good hot shower, and plenty of fluffy white towels to dry you after a very busy day!

Exactly what we needed

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time staying at this home. What was really nice was the Pack n' Play already in the house which made it easier for my toddler. Would highly recommend the stay as it is close enough to downtown to be walkable and far enough away that it's relaxing.

Comfortable and easily located in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location! I loved how comfortable this house was and how easily it was to work remotely from here. It was incredibly clean when I got there and had condiments available for use.

Central San Diego fun

  • 5 of 5

This clean home was a delight, and we especially appreciated off street parking. The location was central to just about everything that we did. It was a perfect place to stay for our family of four. Our first VRBO experience was a success! Thank you.
