About the property

Sleeps 8 (14 if also rent #509618)

This listing is for an ~ 1250 square foot 3 bedroom single story Vacation Rental, which is part of a larger ~ 5,000 Sq. Ft. estate, that includes my residence (above this Vacation Rental), and an attached town home (which can also be rented at VRBO listing #509618).

Both Vacation Rentals are completely separate, updated, air conditioned; freshly painted with: private entrances; beautiful bathrooms; 55' flat screens in the living areas (premium cable/smart TV); 32' flat screens in the master bedroom of each listing; separate washer/dryers. You have a fully furnished kitchenette/with granite counters/stainless appliances.

You look out on a beautiful kidney shaped, newly resurfaced pool, with a water slide and LED color changing pool light, hot tub, waterfall, deck, Travertine Patio, BBQ island/bar/sink with a large built in gas grill & granite counter-top, fire pit with decorative glass rock. There is no barrier between the exit doors and the pool, therefore this listing is not suitable and will NOT be rented to guests with small/non-swimming children. If children will be on the property, please advise me of their age and swimming ability when making your initial inquiry about renting the property. The pool is solar heated, thereby extending the swimming season. Patios/pool/outdoor areas are open ONLY from 9 A.M. to 10 P.M. The rental, including the patio/pool/outdoor areas, are for paying guests ONLY. If you wish to entertain non-paying individuals, do so at a location off the property. Large, 3/4 acre, fenced, private, property with fruit trees for you to enjoy/consume when in season (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, apple and lemon).

The property has stunning mountain and canyon views to the Pacific Ocean and Mt. Helix. Very private and tranquil. Occasionally I see a flock of wild parrots fly by or perch in the trees. There is only off street parking.

This Vacation Rental listing has 3 bedrooms, sleeps 8 with two queen beds, two twin (trundle) beds, two conventional twin beds, (and a queen inflatable air mattress if needed for additional person(s)). Note the third bedroom is a separate room, but you can only get to it via the second bedroom or an exterior door. For groups of 1 to 8, rent this one Vacation Rental listing. For groups of 9 to 14, rent both Vacation Rental listings. The base rent for each Vacation Rental listing covers the first two people staying in the listing. For additional persons (beyond two), staying in the listing, there is an additional $25 per person daily fee (holiday dates rates will be based on a minimum of six people). If you are able to write me a check for the total rental amount that I can receive within 7 days of making your reservation, you can avoid the VRBO service fee. The outdoor areas are the only thing you share with others staying at the property. Pets may be brought for a fee, upon approval.

Why Jeffrey Linn chose La Mesa

I bought this large home as I loved the views and it was suitable to house my multi- generational family. However, it ended up mostly being me and Lucy (my twelve year old golden retriever). Therefore, I decided to share it with others. Although I'm biased, I think it is a beautiful place and I hope you can come and see it/stay a while.

A little piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay at this VRBO location and our host. We were quite convenient to everything we wanted to see (within about 20 minutes to everything), there were several restaurant options nearby, as well. The friendly golden retriever, Lucy, was also a treat to visit. The pool is amazing and the hottub was a great evening retreat! Jeff was able to provide restaurant and activity suggestions and was never in our way. There was also plenty of parking.

For the rental itself, it included full size appliances, including: fridge, stove, dishwasher, washer & dryer. There are 2 washrooms: one with a full tub & shower and the other, a little more of an awkward set up, as it is in the main entryway, with the washer and dryer, and includes a shower. There is also a urinal and sink outside for the pool. The pool includes plenty of pool toys, and a slide and beautiful water fountain. We enjoyed some fruit from the many fruit trees on the yard. We also enjoyed our view of the neighbouring Mount Helix.

We would definitely recommend this host and location in San Diego!

Beautiful, comfortable home

  • 3 of 5

We had plenty of room to sleep 7. Jeffrey is a great host and is on premises. The only drawback is that there are 2 units available and I did not know this when I booked. Common areas such as the pool and patio were shared. The other guests were very nice, but we would have booked another location had we known about the shared areas.

More than a Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this gorgeous La Mesa home where we felt comfortable and relaxed. Everything has been thought of from parking, can openers, extra towels, laundry detergent, spare hangars and pool toys. Our kids also enjoyed the pool and it was so nice to have a BBQ and watch the sunset over the valley. I couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you so much Jeffrey!

Beautiful home with an Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

Eight women of our family gathered to this spot from all over the US to enjoy a sister's getaway. It was a wonderful destination for us. The home was very comfortable, and there was plenty of room for us all. The view was breathtaking, and we enjoyed relaxing on the large porch in the beautiful sunshine. The owner was very accommodating with our needs, and was helpful and prompt in answering any questions that we had. The home was in a good location that provided easy access to tourist destinations in San Diego. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would highly recommend this home to anyone looking to rent a vacation home in San Diego!

Very nice property

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate (record setting rainfall), so we were not able to take advantage of the outdoor amenities, which was disappointing, but not anyone's fault. Inside the property, everything was clean and well maintained. The owner was available to us by text/phone and answered all my questions as they arose. It was our first experience with VRBO and I would definitely do it again.
