About Athena-Rae

Hello,

We would love to have you as our Guests while in San Diego!

I am Native to San Diego, California the Golden State

During my youth I grew up in Italy and traveled Europe with my Family, I grew up in Rome E.U.R.my 2nd home but San Diego will always be my first home!

We want to make sure your San Diego experience is all that you hoped and more. Need San Diego tips and saving websites, I am happy to help. Come be our Guests !!

Athena-Rae purchased this house in 2001

Why Athena-Rae chose San Diego

We have enjoyed living in Golden Hill for over 15 years in this 1907 Craftsman Historical Home; prior to buying in this neighborhood, we rented and fell in love with the community spirit that is Golden Hill.

Golden Hill is an Urban neighborhood in the Historical District of San Diego, California; just up the hill from downtown. It is a neighborhood in the true sense of the word; walk-able, friendly, restaurants, Farmers Market, Historical homes and a very central location for all the San Diego Must See's.

Very central location, easy access to all.

Auto access is direct from freeways 5 and 94, the major through streets and bus routes are Broadway (East and West), and 25th Street and 30th Street (North and South).

What makes this house unique

Completely renovated 1907 Historical Craftsman Home.

This is a newer location for us but we have been doing Vacation Rentals for some time. Please read the reviews at our Casa de Corazon location:

*The Golden Hill neighborhood is adjacent to the landing approach of the San Diego Airport; Airplane arrivals are throughout the day, sometimes busy and sometimes sporadic, night time arrivals are very sporadic. If you're sitting outside on our front porch or back patio you can't help but notice them.

**The interior of our home has been sound proofed as much if not more, as any home can be, with extra insulation, 5/8' drywall, dual pane windows and doors, tight window and door seals, all contributing to sound reduction.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Athena and Bo's house. The house is very large, comfortable, fully equipped, and located in a nice neighborhood with up-and-coming restaurants. The house was well-maintained and clean.

If attending a conference at the convention center, this house is pretty ideal. An uber ride was max a 10 minutes drive.

Best decision I've ever made picking a place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation in San Diego was definitely enhanced by our stay at the White House of Golden Hill. Our group of 9 was very comfortable in this spacious and well-maintained house. Everything was sparkling clean and well thought out to give guests an enjoyable experience. We were supplied with all the supplies we needed for the grandkids like a crib, stroller, toys, and plastic dishes. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating. We highly recommended this house and hope to stay here again. It's conveniently located and an excellent alternative to a hotel. It cost less than renting three hotel rooms, and we had a huge amount of space to socialize and visit in. A small grocery store, liquor store, some excellent restaurants and a bakery with delicious Mexican pastries were a short walk away.

Clean, comfortable, and spacious

  • 5 of 5

The hosts are great and will help you out if you have questions. Great place to stay in San Diego. Central to downtown, beaches, and everything America's Finest City has to offer. The house is located in a very walkable district. Many restaurants, bars, and shops minutes away. Great house to entertain with guests, especially with the deck in the the back. I highly recommend this place!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Athena and Bo's home on golden hill is golden. My 50th birthday was enriched by the beauty of this home. My children and grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed our weekend all together at the white house on golden hill. Athena has thought of everything to accommodate any group. Beach necessities to barbeque necessities. The stores and coffee house in this area are amazing as well. Major props to Krakatoa coffee house. Highly recommend to anyone and have already informed all my friends of this gem. Thanks Athena and Bo. The Reynoso family.

This property is AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Athena-Rae and Bo for an amazing property and amazing stay! We cannot wait to stay here again! They have thought of absolutely everything you would need to enjoy your stay in comfort....too many to list but here are some: hairdryer in each bathroom, spa tub, every kind of cookware you could want, sand toys, games, chalk boards/chalk for kids, awesome hot tub in yard, grill on deck, beautiful backyard and lighting at night, more than enough pillows/blankets, ceiling fans in every room, face and bathwash on hand, 2 washer/ dryers (one on each floor), and two coffee makers (one on each floor), smart tvs everywhere with Netflix, gorgeous craftsmanship in this home (from flooring, to cabinetry, to custom built beds in the sectional sofas), convenient location (1/2 block from great pizza place and couple blocks to small grocery store, close to Balboa Park), soundproofing is great even though 3 miles from airport, beautiful decor, and immaculately clean, great appliances too! I could go on and on but these are some of highlights! Thank you so much....had a hard time saying goodbye to this property and their wonderful owners.....Athena-Rae is so on top of everything with communications....a joy to work with! Thank you, thank you for making our San Diego stay feel like a home away from home! We cannot wait to come back one day :)
