About the property

3 Bedroom 2 Bath Unique And Ultra Modern, With Organic Micro Farm And Hot Tub

This home was built and is owned by a landscape and home architect! Also, the owner is vegan so there is a fully functioning micro farm on the property.

The living room features a 55' television with most cable channels. The kitchen is all granite counter tops with stainless steel appliances.

The downstairs level features all painted concrete floors. The stair case is also all stainless steel as well.

The third bonus room features a queen sized bed.

In the back of the property there is also a 30 foot high deck with lounge furniture, a heater and a new 6 person Hot Springs Spa.

The entire property is extremely secluded for it's location in the center of town.

The property is located approximately 10 minutes by walking to downtown Hillcrest. The airport, downtown, beaches, Sea World, Zoo, Balboa Park, etc.... are all just minutes away from this centrally located home.

About Zapher Dajani

Check out House Hunters International for an entire episode featuring the purchase of our vacation rental in Puerto Vallarta Mexico & to find out more about me.

I live in San Diego and own a catering / event design company. I also own a condo in Las Vegas, Puerto Vallarta, and Maui.

Zapher Dajani purchased this house in 2006

Why Zapher Dajani chose San Diego

This is an incredibly unique property. First, as a vegan, we created a fully functional micro farm on property. Second, my partner is a landscape and building architect. So every possible detail is impressive. Finally, it's so close to everything with only a 10 minute walk to downtown Hillcrest.

What makes this house unique

Secluded yet central to everything. The secluded garden setting is nothing short of feeling paradise in person. Plenty of off street parking.

Great San Diego location and home

  • 4 of 5

Overall the property was great, as were the hosts. We enjoyed the garden and the deck by the hot tub. Perfect spot for drinks and nibbles at the end of the day while the kids splashed around. Beds were very comfortable and the apple tv and air con were appreciated. The property was also very clean on arrival. Our only suggestion for improvement would be to add blinds to the windows. Many windows had no covering and although we were happy with this from a privacy standpoint, the bright sunlight at 6 am meant no sleeping in on our holiday. This was especially true for our 2 and 5 year old who were wide awake and ready to play as soon as the sun came up. Some simple blinds would have allowed for some lazy mornings. Otherwise I was thrilled with the house, property, and lovely hosts. Would stay again thank you! Also loved Hillcrest, close to everything!

The best hosts and a quiet architecturally unique house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Zapher was helpful and warm, waiting when I arrived. Zapher and Derrick were the best hosts. The property has many interesting unique architectural details. The house location was convenient only a few blocks to the main activity of Hillcrest yet very quiet. I loved hearing the birds and seeing the lushness of the landscaping! I will definitely be staying here again when I go to SD.

Pictures don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing! Upon arrival Zapher was incredibly warm and welcoming. The house feels very private and secluded but is close to everywhere we wanted to go. The decor is stylish and manages to make an ultra modern house feel warm. Next time I visit San Diego I wouldn't hesitate to rebook.

Quirky cool

  • 4 of 5

My kids want me to buy this place. Not every architectural feature or decoration was our taste, and some things need a bit of TLC, but every major thing was good or better than good. Most favorably impressed with the location and the yard. The owner has clearly made an effort to make the place interesting, not just a box with beds. Wouldn't hesitate to book it again next time the opportunity presents.

Clean, comfortable and private

  • 5 of 5

I loved the location of this home. Located at the end of the street, it was quiet and peaceful and we enjoyed hearing the birds sing. The house was clean and well maintained, and the upstairs bed was AMAZING. Usually the beds are soft and worn out in rentals, but this one was firm and comfortable. The lush greenery in the yard made it hard to head indoors. A great home and the owners were very good hosts. Responded to emails within minutes. Would love to stay here again.
