About the Property

Comfy 2BR, 2BA Home, Private Gardens, Outdoor Dining.

Please note, there is a 21 year old minimum age requirement for all guests staying at The Little Garden.

This lovely 1921 Craftsman home offers old-fashioned comfort with vintage and modern amenities. The spacious house boasts 1500 sq. ft. with 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, and sleeps 4 guests in 2 beds; a queen and a king. Private tranquil gardens surround the home, in a quiet, cul-de-sac neighborhood. The master bedroom . The king bedroom features private garden view, en suite bathroom with shower/tub and bidet. Guest bedroom features queen bed and cozy reading chair. Full bath with tub/shower across the hall. Both bedrooms have curtains and top-down, bottom-up shades. The east-facing Master Bedroom also features blackout drapes so you can sleep in! Central heating and air conditioning keep temperatures comfortable. Roomy vintage kitchen offers dishwasher, wall oven, old-fashioned gas range/stove, side-by-side fridge/freezer. The Little Garden is a self-catered vacation rental but to get you off to a good start we do supply starter quantities of coffee, tea, creamer pots, spices and condiments (and plenty of cookware). For the bathrooms these include toothpaste and toothbrushes, soaps, shampoo, hair dryers and bath tissue. We also provide iron and ironing boards. Although The Little Garden is withing about a 20 minute drive to great San Diego Beaches, it is not a beach property and may not be ideal for your needs if the beach is the focus of your vacation. We do not offer beach umbrellas or chairs but we do supply our vintage beach towels (hallway dresser) and a styrofoam cooler (top of kitchen hutch) and freezer pack.

Note: The city of San Diego is upgrading the water main pipes. From time to time, with little warning, popup detours will arise, streets will be dug up, work, noise and dust will ensue. Sometimes there will be an interruption of water service. I have no control over this but you will receive a door tag and/or a notice from me as soon as information is available. We hope the inconvenience will be brief and not interfere terribly with your vacation!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Native San Diegan. Reclusive artist, gardener, avid walker. I enjoy time with family and friends. As a young girl, with my family, I lived in Switzerland and traveled Europe for nearly 3 years. We also spent many fun summers and weekends at our our family shack in Mexico.

Why the Owner Chose Mission Hills, San Diego, CA, USA:
The charm of the older and historic neighborhoods of Mission Hills. After living in La Jolla and del Mar, when I was ready to buy a home of my own, this was the neighborhood that appealed most to me. The house is conveniently located to many amenities. Within walking distance there are many great restaurants, shops, summer Cinema Under the Stars, Pioneer Park and tennis courts. It is within minutes of some of San Diego's finest attractions, including San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Old Town, Gas Lamp, Embarcadero, Coronado and many of our fine beaches. You are 2 blocks from the city bus, 10 minute drive from the airport, train station, trolley, Comic-Con, 10 blocks walk to city DecoBike rent-a-bike station. Garage is not offered but there is ample street parking.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Essentials Cable TV Central Air Conditioning and Heating Free Cox Wireless Internet sufficient for multiple devices. Washer/Dryer, Dishwasher Gas stove Wall oven Hair Dryer in each bathroom Iron and ironing board Dome, white noise machine in each bedroom to help you settle into new neighborhood sounds. Depending upon the time of year, there may be fruits or vegetable fruiting in the gardens and you are welcome to them. Look for tangelos near the side gate, Meyer lemons on the sidewalk lawn, arugula near the front gate (just snip off the tops for tasty salads) hot red peppers in pots across from the birdbath garden (handle those with your hands in plastic bags because they are very hot), blueberries in the island garden next to the back patio; potted bell peppers in the back garden.
