Charming, Stylish, Fun and Playful!

Welcome to 'The Heart of San Diego', a California Arts and Crafts Bungalow built in 1914. Set yourself apart from the crowd, and experience a part of early 20th-century American architectural history! Our authentic California bungalow offers a fun and refreshing experience in one of the very best residential neighborhoods in San Diego!

Enjoy the warmth and enchantment of this house that has been lovingly restored and newly updated with modern amenities. During its most recent remodel, we took utmost care to preserve the charm and character while being playful with many of the decorations. Enjoy old world charm with modern appliances and conveniences.

There is a King Size bed in the rear master bedroom. The front master bedroom has a Queen Size bed plus a Twin Size pull out couch. The third bedroom has two Twin Size beds. The living room has a second pull-out couch; Queen Size. Both pull out couches have memory foam mattresses for extra comfort! The two Master Bedrooms and the three bathrooms makes everyone happy.

For the little ones we have a high chair, a Pack 'n Play crib, safety gates and an outdoor Little Tikes Climb and Slide.

Relax with a cup of coffee on the front porch, enjoy a book and glass of wine on the patio, soak in the Whirlpool bathtub, or take a stroll through the neighborhood and park. Of, if you're looking for a bit more excitement, grill on the patio and enjoy the outdoor living space, walk to the nearby shops, restaurants, and breweries. Get out and enjoy the weather and all that San Diego has to offer!

Finally, don't forget, the world famous beaches, parks, Coronado, the San Diego Zoo, Safari Park, and Sea World are all close by. If you're up for an even bigger adventure, there's always a day trip to Tijuana Mexico, Legoland, and Disneyland. The San Diego Convention Center is just minutes away.

We think 'The Heart of San Diego' is a gem, and we hope that you will, too!

About Ed

Proud to be born and raised near Boston Mass. I was lucky enough to spend a couple of years in California as a child. Not too soon after college, I had to pack up and move to San Diego. I've been here for over 20 years and I still appreciate the beauty of every single day. I love living in this amazing San Diego neighborhood of North Park.

Ed purchased this House in 2005

Why Ed chose North Park

Relax and enjoy all this charming home complete with modern conveniences. This quiet location has all of the conveniences within a short walk yet is central to San Diego's larger attractions. I love walking 3 blocks to the trails at Bird Park and Balboa Park.

                                                          Jessica F.Boston, MA

                                                          Ed’s house is a lovely Craftsman in a charming, walkable neighborhood. We were traveling with our two young kids (2.5 years and 4 months) and it was perfect. There was a pack n play, a few toys including a slide in the side yard, washer and dryer, even a great claw foot tub for nighttime baths. The decor is nothing fancy, but perfectly comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped for the little bit of cooking we did. There are great restaurants within a short walk, and playgrounds too. Ed lives nearby and is available in minutes to helping with questions (eg changing the battery on a beeping smoke detector).

                                                          If we ever were to move to San Diego, we’d be looking for a house just like this! In the meantime, we will just hope this one is available when we have to visit! Thanks Ed for a great stay.

                                                          Loved it! Great location! Perfect for our family!

                                                          Alyssa W.

                                                          Great location and perfect for our family of 5! Highly recommend!

                                                          Excellent experience

                                                          Anne E.

                                                          Overall, very positive experience. Very well-equipped throughout. Three bedrooms & three baths ideal for families. Comfortably furnished. Good outdoor space as well. Great location - convenient, lovely neighborhood to walk. Minor downsides for us - front queen bed very creaky, floors somewhat dusty, not clean enough for our one year old to play (no rugs). Communication with Ed was excellent throughout - thoughtful & responsive.

                                                          No regrets

                                                          This place exceeded our expectations. Ed was wonderful to work with.

                                                          Very comfortable, charming vacation home

                                                          We come to San Diego often to visit our daughter and her family. Our son and girlfriend were coming this time and we needed extra room. This home was a perfect get away for all of us including 2 grandsons (ages 4 & 13). A very comfortable, well cared for home in a nice quiet neighborhood within walking distance to many shops and restaurants.

                                                          We had never spent time in this area, and it was great to experience the North Park area. It’s very close to Balboa Park and the zoo. The home is equipped with anything you need, perfect with 2 ensuite master bedrooms, plus a 3rd full bathroom. We were able to cook great dinners and even grill outside. I would definitely stay here again, no complaints at all. Ed was very accommodating with an early check in and very attentive to our needs even on a Saturday night. Thanks Ed!

                                                          Wonderful bungalow- awesome location

                                                          Terrific having 3 bathrooms and bedrooms and a kitchen with everything you could possibly want. Also very nice large dining area. Ed was extremely responsive and helpful. There’s a very nice area outside but unfortunately it was a bit cool in the morning and evening in February. We were away for most of the day. Location close to Balboa Park was terrific. Don’t miss the Thursday market if you’re around
