Property description

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.

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 new (purchased October 2014) and all beds are pillow-top Serta, extremely comfortable 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 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.

We always have these items available when children or babies are expected. There is a car booster seat available which is required in California for kids under 8 yrs old. Let us know if you would like the booster seat.

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.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Normal Heights, San Diego, CA, USA:
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 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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
