About the Property
1500 Sq Feet Beautifully Decorated And Peaceful
During September through December, we will be remodeling in another section of the house. It will not affect these bedrooms other than there will be noise from 8 to 5pm. Pricing will reflect that.
This listing is for the home we live in - in lovely San Diego. You can book from 1 up to 3 bedrooms - just inquire. The quoted price on this listing is for 3 bedrooms. If you rent 3 bedrooms, you will have the house to yourselves. Of course if you want fewer rooms, that price is lower. In that case, you will be sharing the house with us or other guests. Although we are family friendly, we prefer no children under 8 - the pool is not enclosed.
• 1 bedroom (accommodates 2)
• 2 bedrooms (accommodates 4)
• 3 bedrooms (accommodates 6)
Availability depends on what has already been booked. This pricing is for 3 bedrooms. Inquire if you want 1 or 2 bedrooms. Depending on our schedule and your booking 1 to 3 bedrooms, we may be in the house during your stay. Please inquire!

We do have cats, and have had several people stay with allergies. All have said that they did not experience problems.
Here is a description of the rooms.
Master bedroom 1: Nicely furnished with a queen bed (it has a thermapedic topper), armoire, TV, DVD player, mini-fridge, Coffee maker, microwave, desk, and has its own nice bathroom with a shower. Although we have cats, they do not come into this room so it's good for allergy sufferers.
The Travel Twin bedroom: We have a really nicely furnished smaller twin bedroom with a shared hall bath. This has a trundle bed that pulls out for a separate twin bed or can be put together for a king size bed. Very comfortable mattresses (one has a Thermapedic topper), cushy comforters, TV, DVD player, mini fridge, desk, coffee maker, and microwave. It has its own access to the pool via French doors. Decorated with a travel theme. Cat free.
The Twin Corner bedroom: This room is a little larger than the Travel Twin and is furnished with two twin beds, linens, TV, desk, a mini fridge, coffee maker, and microwave. These are very comfortable Sealy Posturpedic beds. We can move them together for a king size bed, too. The room is light and airy and has some of my horse paintings as decoration. It shares the hall bath and is cat free. This room has French doors opening to the pool.
Master bedroom 2: This is the bedroom we occupy. Just remodeled to include its own beautiful bath. It has a king size bed, and TV. Exterior French door opens onto an atrium. Cats do go in this room, so it is not good for allergy sufferers.
The back yard pool is situated in a very tropical setting. The neighborhood is quiet, and there is plenty of street parking available next to our home. This is a very peaceful setting and a good place to get away from the hubbub.
We are located central to everything - 5 – 20 minutes by car to all activities: downtown, close to freeways 163, 8 and 5. Our location is 163 and Genesee - next to Sharp Hospital (walking distance), Rady Children's Hospital (walking distance), close to Mesa College, Fashion Valley Mall and Mission Valley Mall (one exit away), 5 miles to the beach (we bike there occasionally), USD (2.5 miles) and other colleges, and to the San Diego airport and Montgomery Field.
There is plenty of on street parking next to our home.
Buses or public transportation:
Our home is a 15 minute walk to the bus line. For some destinations you will have to take a few buses. This is a better location by car unless you’re young and love to hike. There are no restaurants or shopping within walking distance, however we do give rides when we can.
We are a husband and wife - relaxed and fairly easy going middle aged (well, that’s debatable) professionals with some extra rooms. We work full time.
This is a smoke free, drug free, and drama free home. We are well traveled and understand the needs of a traveler. We are friendly but can leave you to your privacy. You truly will find this an escape, an awesome place to kick back, or be close to the action down town.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I'm Pamela and I grew up on the east coast. A Florida girl until high school. An artist by hobby, an instructor of medical software by trade. Always an adventurer. I met Neil at a church singles function and we've been married for 16 years (both second marriages for us).
Why the Owner Chose Birdland, San Diego, CA, USA:
I lived in this neighborhood for probably 5 years and one day we saw this home up for sale. We fell in love with it and bought it right off. We've done our best to make it a comfortable and beautiful place to locate. It's close to everything.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Love the location. It's just so close to every place we want to go. There were hardwood floors under the rugs which of course we pulled up to reveal. And then we remodeled last year. Love this house!
