Property description

Beautifully situated on 1.25 Acres with Views to the North East! This home was built for entertaining and enjoyment! The Guest Wing features 3 bedrooms, each with flat screen televisions, ceiling fans, attached bathrooms (one large Jack & Jill with a tub/shower combo & two separate toilet rooms & sinks, one with a fully private bath). The 'Pool Room' features a bay window & slider that look onto the pool area & surrounding views. All are comfortable and attractive!

The pool and tennis court are just off the guest room end of the house. The pool isn't heated, but with dark bottom, is enjoyable throughout the summer. The setting is pleasant and relaxing ... a truly enjoyable place to unwind and relax after your day of playing tourist or attending meetings or other events in town!

When the house is rented a caretaker or myself will stay in the attached flat to be available for questions or any issues that might come up (that area is not pictured or included in the bedroom and bath count). There are a lot of moving parts to running the pool & spa, landscaping and other equipment for such a large property and we want your time to be as enjoyable as reasonably possible, so will make ourselves available for questions and assistance as needed.

The total home size is 6800 square feet with 5+ Bedrooms (including the bunk bed room which has 2 twin & 2 double beds), 6 baths, and ample parking on site within the gates. Please contact us for additional information and quotes for your particular situation.

This home is really nice, very comfortable, clean, and feels much like a beautiful resort with palm trees, ample windows & sliders to the outdoors. It can accommodate larger groups, however being in the middle of a quiet residential area, isn't suitable for large parties or loud outdoor music. Consideration of the neighbors and respectful use of the home is expected and greatly appreciated!

Owner info

About the owner: I'm a Realtor and have been for 35+ years. When the house isn't rented, I live in the main house and manage the vacation rental for Larry & Cyndi Vaughan, the owners. It started out to be a very temporary arrangement, but the setting is so enjoyable, we've extended the arrangement!

Why the Owner Chose Mount Helix (La Mesa, CA, USA):
The biggest appeal to me for this home is how great it's set up for entertaining, including a very spacious Great Room and separate family room, a covered brick patio with built in barbecue, pool & spa, great landscaping, and, of course, the View which really has me spoiled! The kitchen shouldn't be overlooked. It's great for cooking, has a very long island counter with 8 stools, and is the heart of the home, as it should be! And the master bedroom is huge, very private, and has one of the best views from the home! Other than how big it is for one person and her two little dogs, there's not much to not like about this home!!
