Overview

About the property

3 bedroom/ 2.5 Bathroom House PERFECT FOR FAMILIES OR GIRLS/GUYS GETAWAYS

*** PAGE ALL THE WAY DOWN FOR DETAILED INFORMATION ********

Truly one of the best layouts you can find for extended families or small groups!! Most of the other 3 bedroom homes in this same price range do not even come close to the quality, size and location of our home. The outdoor space in our backyard is a huge bonus for small groups to gather around the built in gas fire pit. Parking space included in our private driveway.

Our home was completely renovated in 2014 and is very modern yet comfortable. This amazing CLEAN home has a wonderful 1625 sq ft open floor plan, Central AC (many San Diego homes don't have this for the occasional hot summer/fall days), & a gourmet kitchen with Quartz counter tops and stainless steel appliances, and a Breakfast bar with leather bar stools! The furniture is modern but comfortable, and all beds are pillow-top Serta, and similar to 5 star hotel beds, or better! We were very careful in the selection of furniture, decor and supplies (as we expect the same when we travel).

"Copley Place" has a fabulous layout with the Master Bedroom suite on the first level with full bathroom, and 2 additional bedrooms with a full bathroom upstairs (with bathtub). The kitchen is also very modern with Quartz counter-tops, eat-in style bar with leather bar stools, and Stainless steel appliances. We offer a real Chef's kitchen fully stocked with the highest quality kitchen equipment, including Kenmore stainless steel pots/pans, Mikasa stainless utensils, Crate & Barrel Platters, and high quality knives. We provide a toaster, coffee maker and grinder, blender, rice cooker, microwave, dishwasher and 5 burner gas stove and oven.

Most lights throughout the house are on dimmer switches, which definitely creates a more relaxing ambience.

More details:


-Sleeps 6-7 comfortably with huge King size bed in the Master Suite, a Queen in the 2nd bedroom, and a Full-size bed AND a pull-out Twin (memory foam mattress) Trundle bed in the 3rd bedroom. Additionally, we have another foam mattress (if needed for a child), and 2 Pack n Play portable cribs. All beds are comfortable and the large beds have pillow-top mattresses.
 Upon request, the 2 piece sectional couch in the living room can be used with the twin foam toppers.

- 3 bathrooms: 1 luxurious full master bathroom with dual sinks (huge stand-up shower), 1 modern full bath with bathtub upstairs, and 1 modern half bath (toilet and vanity), which makes getting ready easier for the group.

About Tracy Garcia

We are so excited to offer our beautiful Copley Place Vacation Rental. After nearly 20 years in the Hotel/Hospitality business, we appreciate the importance of great hospitality and ensuring our guests have a wonderful experience, so they want to return!

Tracy Garcia purchased this house in 2014

Why Tracy Garcia chose Normal Heights

We chose this house because it is quiet, and it has a high quality modern hotel feel so it seemed perfect for a vacation rental. The location is really amazing, within walking distance of Adam's Avenue, and very close to the freeway entrance for fast access to all the local attractions. It really only takes 10-15 minutes to drive to any of the main San Diego Spots (door to door). And check out the local events (within walking distance but still extremely quiet at our home) scheduled http://www.adamsavenuebusiness.com/Events.html

The house is brand new since the renovation took the house down to the studs, and doubled in size. The design is modern with hardwood floors and some carpet, beautiful kitchen and 3 bathrooms.

What makes this house unique

Within walking distance to Adams Avenue with great restaurants and nightlife, such as El Zarape, Subuku Sushi, The Rabbit Hole, Blind Lady Ale (where Will Farrell has been seen), DaoFu Vietnamese/Japanese Restaurant, Soda & Swine, and the Ould Sod (an Irish Pub featuring karaoke, check their schedule), the brand new Chi Extraordinary Kitchen (thai) and many more.

Watch for Adams Avenue Festivals that happen regularly throughout the year as well.

Culture:

Like other urban mesa neighborhoods north of Balboa Park, Normal Heights has a high rate of pedestrian activity, with many restaurants. The stretch of Adams Avenue between Texas Street on the west and Ohio Street on the east is sometimes referred to as Antique Row, due to its numerous antique stores. A landmark neon sign over Adams Avenue at Felton Street identifies the neighborhood.

Annual events:

Several important neighborhood events take place in Normal Heights. The Adams Avenue Street Fair, Southern California's largest free music festival, is typically held the last weekend in September. Adams Avenue Unplugged, formerly the Adams Avenue Roots Festival, another free music festival, is held the last weekend of April. Another large Art Around Adams is a local community art event where unique and talented artists showcase their work inside and outside businesses and spaces along Adams Avenue.

We had the privilege of staying at Copley Place for a little family getaway. THIS PLACE WAS BEYOND PERFECT! We have stayed in many places through VRBO and we all agreed this home was by far the best equipped of any we stayed in.

- The decor was fun and lively and made everyone smile!

- The backyard was set up for family BBQ's and snuggling by the fire pit

- The kitchen had everything a person could ask for. Who bakes cookies from scratch on vacation? We did! The kitchen made us do it....hahaha.

- Beach towels, boogie boards, waffle makers, pack n plays, lunch boxes, epsom salt, first aid kits, quality toiletries, blue tooth sound bar, jogging stroller, high chair, birthday candles, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, etc, etc, etc. This is just a a few of many items that were at Copley Place but are usually not at other rentals.

-Best part of all - Communication by the owner. Wishing us well, checking in with us, etc.

THANK YOU! We will certainly be back!

Great family property

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed for our second consecutive year - my wife and I, our daughter and husband and their two sons. There is a stroller and highchair plus a ton of toys and beach gear for kids. The kitchen is well stocked. The decor is clean and modern. The property is impeccably maintained and the owner, Tracy, is responsive and a pleasure to work with. She does not "cheap out" on anything. The location is excellent - quiet and convenient. The 805 is close and surface streets take you to the zoo in under 15 minutes. A short walk to Adams Avenue delivers a host of restaurants and pubs. A Vons is on Adams as well for stocking the fridge. I highly recommend this property.

A Perfect gathering spot for relaxing with great friends

  • 5 of 5

After our sons wedding in San Diego, we rented this amazing house with two other couples. It was the perfect place to relax with absolute comfort and perfection. The house was well appointed with everything we needed. We enjoyed the outside fireplace area in the evenings as well as the pergola area for our morning coffee when planning our day. We are all from Wisconsin, and loved this area where we could enjoy the beautiful sunshine together. The house was impeccably clean and well furnished.

Should we find ourselves returning to this area we would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to others.

The Gracias were gracious hosts and got back to us immediately with any questions we had. Thank you for such an enjoyable stay!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I spent the weekend here and we had a blast. We were within walking distance of many shops and restaurants, and a short drive to Gaslamp and the aquarium. We were very impressed with the attention to detail in the house, there was everything we could've possibly needed. The backyard was beautiful and quiet. We would definitely stay here again!

Fabulous with amazing little details!

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful and modern and was perfect for our party of 7 adults. Tracy is an amazing hostess who has literally thought of everything you can imagine! Her attention to all of the little details is unmatched. She has all the necessities and then some. The backyard oasis was so relaxing for morning coffee and evening chats around the fire. Close to many beaches and downtown spots. If we ever make it back to San Diego, I know where we will be staying! Thank you for making the second half of our vacation amazing!
