Property description

This charming, centrally located canyon home underwent a major renovation in mid-2014 complete with new appliances. Located in the eclectic neighborhood of Hillcrest, the house is walking distance to shopping, a vibrant nightlife and a plethora of restaurants, and is just minutes by car to all of San Diego’s main attractions. Staying here is a great alternative to hotels and noisy beach condos. You’ll feel like one of the residents in this quiet neighborhood as you relax on the patio, BBQ your dinner or stroll the streets of this safe and friendly neighborhood.

Our home is two-stories with a bedroom, full bathroom, kitchen, living and dining room on the main level and a spiral staircase leading downstairs to two bedrooms, bathroom and laundry. Glass doors from the dining room lead to the private patio. Relax, explore and enjoy all beautiful San Diego has to offer.

***Children will need approval. The home is not ideal for very young due to the steel spiral staircase that leads downstairs.

Other Amenities

  • While this home does not have A/C, there are only a few short weeks in the summer when it is typically needed (search for average temperatures during your stay and you'll see what we mean). San Diego's climate is semi-arid with typically low humidity so it doesn't feel as hot as it can in other parts of the country with higher humidity. That said, there are ceiling fans and portable fans for you to use. With this home being on a canyon, it also receives nice ocean breezes. If you come during one of the hot weeks (hard to predict when they will be), the locals typically head to the beach where it can be about 10 degrees cooler. It's also a good idea to visit a movie theater, shop at the mall or do some sightseeing at the museums in Balboa Park. The evenings typically cool down and you can relax on the outdoor patio until the house temperature evens out....moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I'm a custom, residential architect who moved to San Diego from the East Coast. I love it here. There's everything you want to do - beaches, mountains, desert, large cities and small towns are all a short drive. And you can't beat the weather! I feel fortunate to live here and share this beautiful home with visitors from around the world. My partner, Randy, and I take hosting seriously. We want to do everything possible to earn 5 star reviews from our guests. As frequent travelers ourselves, we understand how important it is to have a great place to stay while on vacation.

Why the Owner Chose University Heights, San Diego, CA, USA:
This property is close to everything, yet is in a quiet and friendly neighborhood. A pedestrian bridge connects this part of Hillcrest to the bustling area with every type of shop, restaurant and bar you can imagine. On weekends, you can even stroll over to one of the best farmer's markets in the city. Hop in your car, and within minutes you're at any number of San Diego's major attractions. Many people come to San Diego and want to be at the beach, but it is a different vibe there and many regret the decision. 'It's a nice place to visit, but you wouldn't want to live there,' is a good way to describe it. I encourage you to venture away from the beach to a charming neighborhood where you can safely enjoy your vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's a great place to relax with all the comforts of home while exploring our beautiful city. You'll feel like you live here, and you'll want to. Please note that due to the iron spiral staircase, the home is not ideal for small children, particularly toddlers. The staircase starts on the first floor and goes downstairs. At this time, there is not gate to prevent a child from using the stairs.
