About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

We welcome you to our lovely 108 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, use the Blue ray for a good movie, 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!

Beautiful cottage in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best HomeAway locations in which I have had the pleasure to stay. It is a beautiful cottage. I would say is comfortably sleeps four. It is minutes away from Balboa and Downtown and a short drive to Coronado. Having off street parking was fabulous!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here during Thanksgiving week. The location was wonderful. It is very close to Balboa Park which we went to 4 times during our visit. The house has a beautiful back yard where we enjoyed morning coffee. If your plans are to be close to downtown San Diego, this is the place.

Charming cottage in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this property. The place was very clean and well appointed. The kitchen had everything we needed and so did the bathroom (shampoo, soap, towels, etc). We would consider staying here again, the next time we visit San Diego.

Perfect change from hotel

  • 5 of 5

Me and buddy were in town for a few days for Beer Week and stayed here. Nice space to spread out and venture out from...parking spot was perfect and laundry was a bonus. Would stay again and would be perfect for a small family.

Great little house close to downtown, the zoo and balboa park walking distance to small restaurants

  • 5 of 5

The house was as pictured. Very clean, comfortable furnishings and air conditioning which was helpful on a couple warm days. The deck and yard are great. We enjoyed our coffee and breakfast down at the seating area each morning and our dogs loved the open space. The yard was completely enclosed so perfect for our fury family.

There is a farmers market on Saturdays up the street a few blocks as well as some great places to eat. Up on 28th there is Starbucks and a couple little restaurants - Georgio's philly cheese steaks are good. And then on 25th Luigi's and golden hills diner, panchettas Mexican bakery and some outstanding Mexican take out on the corner across from the fire station.

You are close to downtown , the zoo and balboa park as well as the 5 freeway which gets you to the airport, old town, sea world and 15 to 20 minutes North to La Jolla, Del Mar and the other beach communities.

Richard and Anne responded quickly to my inquiries and worked with us when our travel dates changes not once but twice. Very accommodating.

Note the parking is tight. Not a problem if you only have one vehicle which can be parked in the driveway .

Many thanks to Richard and Anne for a great stay.
