Why Carla chose La Mesa

We chose this Windsor Hills Property mainly for its charm, romantic views and dazzling sunsets. This "Jewel" boasts wood-beamed ceilings in the " Main House" (2b/2b), two outside decks, dining room, retro kitchen, and a large living space overlooking the coast.

Also a "Guest House" with kitchen, living space, bathroom (shower) and bedroom (l) which can be rented along with the Main House for overflow of guests.

The La Mesa area is in a great location and very central to so many activities through San Diego.

What makes this house unique

Our "Jewel in the Hills" Vacation Home and Guest House is in an awesome, quiet, walking neighborhood with the "Secret Stairs" that take visitors to the bottom of the mountain (or to the top of Windsor Hills) where guests can stroll into La Mesa Village for some shopping, dining, antiquing...and much more. Trolley access is available in La Mesa Village for access around San Diego and the Mexican Border.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful vacation spot. People who stay at this property will realize they are in a central area of San Diego between the east and the west (at the ocean). Wonderful views of the San Diego city line, valley, and water all from the deck that extends from the living room.





Very comfortable, nice kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms. The house is located in a neighborhood that has the advantages of places to walk, ride, and wonderful neighbors. I've used this house on two separate occasions and have been extremely satisfied with the amenities, including a television in the living room and every bedroom. It has a great living room, dining area, decks, and artwork throughout (French-themed).





Great location, amenities, and lots of things to do in just a short walk away or even a quick drive to many of San Diego's great attractions.

Our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent three months at Carla's house this past winter. I usually don’t write reviews but because our experience there was so exceptional I wanted to share it. Carla and John are thoughtful and welcoming hosts. We arrived after a long flight. Of course I was apprehensive, but as soon as I saw the Christmas tree, loaded with lights and decorations, I knew we were in the right place.The neighbors are friendly, the area is quiet and private and the view is unreal. We could have been in Italy. Everything is top drawer which is what I expected because Carla pays close attention to the smallest detail and has furnished the house with only the best. Grocery stores, drug stores and even big box stores are all minutes away. There are three televisions with premium stations. Downstairs there is a lovely guest apt. that I used as an office. It’s fully equipped with kitchen, bedroom and bath and even a 4th TV!!. I can’t wait till next year !

Owner's Response: We are so pleased once again you've enjoyed your extended stay in our "Jewel in the Hills" Vacation Home and Guest House! John and I look forward to your return this July, 2017...and then again in December 2017 through March 2018 as you travel from New York to sunny San Diego. The Guest House adorns two T.V.s...one in the bedroom and in the main living space, for a total of five throughout the property! Our "Jewel" in Windsor Hills sets high on the mountain to give you those beautiful views along the distant coast, and is conveniently close to shopping, dining, and walking. Try the new upscale restaurant in La Mesa Village...Farmers' Table. It's delicious! :) See you soon as you celebrate your daughter's wedding and the " Fourth of July!"

Beautiful Home - Excellent View - Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home with excellent views, convenient location, very well outfitted, and wonderful hosts. Carla and John are simply wonderful! The recent renovations to the very clean and nicely decored home are very well done and the extras that Carla provides (upgraded linens, snack basket, fruit, soaps, hair dryer, bottled water, coffees, etc.) make it feel like "home". The upper floor accommodation is at street level with convenient parking and is well suited for people with disabilities. Additionally, they are excellent guides and sources of area information - - really special folks. The home is conveniently located within walking distance of the Village of LaMesa with "fun walks" at your doorstep. We highly recommend "The Jewel of the Hills" and will definitely stay again.

Clean, quiet, great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Carla couldn't have been more accommodating (booked on short notice due to family emergency, late check-in, etc) and the house was immaculate. Little extra touches like the delicious breakfast pastry were also appreciated. And what a view -- we could see downtown San Diego off in the distance. Great place to crash during our stay.

Owner's Response: John and I truly enjoyed meeting you and your family, Lakhbir. So happy your daughter's wedding at the El Cortez Hotel was beautiful and memorable, and that your family was pleased with the accommodations we provide at our "Jewel in the Hills!" I must tell you that we thoroughly enjoyed the aroma from breakfast the morning of your departure. Wish we'd been there to relish in the feast! :) See you on your next visit! Cordially...............John and Carla

Car: recommended

Our lovely owner-operated home in Windsor Hills is centrally located in San Diego County, minutes from the beaches...or the mountains! A short walk to La Mesa Village down the popular 'Secret Stairway' is a convenient path to access a variety of restaurants, shops, antique stores, local coffee/deli hangouts, entertainment, Friday Farmers Market...and much more!

This relaxing space within walking distance to the Trolley gives you access to many sites throughout San Diego--

Qualcomm Stadium, Petco Park, S. D. State University, Grossmont Shopping Center, Fashion Valley and Mission Valley Shopping Centers, movie theaters and restaurants. Ride the trolley to Downtown San Diego Gas Lamp District, Outlet Stores, Tijuana, Mexico, Liberty Station, and Historical Old Town below the Presidio Mission and Park.

During the Fall, Oktoberfest is one of the highlights of La Mesa Village, 'Jewel of the Hills.' For those interested in visiting the San Diego Convention Center for world-famous events such as the COMIC CON CONVENTION, our place is conveniently located just a short distance from those areas whether you choose to drive...or take the trolley! Freeways are within a half-mile distance from this romantic vacation get-a-way. Easy and quick travel to all attractions such as beaches, San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Scripp's Aquarium in La Jolla, Belmont Park in Mission Beach with one of the oldest wooden roller coasters, Coronado Island, and Balboa Park/Museums (prelude to it's Centennial Celebration, with more museums than any other park in America!).

Less than an hour-and-a-half drive to Disneyland in Anaheim, CA, or Knott's Berry Farm makes for a perfect day trip up the coast! Or take a leisurely drive to the mountain town of Julian, famous during the gold rush days of past, and specifically well known for their apple orchards and yummy 'apple pies.' (:

We love to get away on the weekends and spend time visiting the many restaurants in the La Mesa Village.

San Filippo' Pizza, Swamis, BO beau's Kitchen, and Tamarind Thai Restaurant are among the many eateries frequented by the locals and visitors.

Lounge on any of the two decks, sit back, enjoy a

cup of freshly brewed coffee while savoring the breathtaking view of the the coastline and city. Sit

eye level with hummingbirds, sparrows, butterflies,

and hawks as they soar by or perch on the oak tree

near the decks.

Fireworks can be seen at various locations in the city and along the coast on the Fourth of July and other special events.

This shangrilla is nestled on a vantage point in a most private and peaceful setting. Great area for walking or jogging with choices of different routes you can take, and varying degrees of challenge. For more adventurous hiking, visit nearby Mission Trails Park or Cowles Mountain.
