About Judy Seid

Hi there,

My name is Judy and I'm a San Diego native. I've owned this property for 20 years and until Jan 2016 lived in it full time. I remarried, moved to Carlsbad, but still stay here occasionally when I am working nearby. Otherwise, I am happy to share my wonderful family home with guests. Hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I do!

Judy Seid purchased this house in 1997

Comfy, spacious and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our group travelled for a wedding in the San Diego area. It was nice not to be in the city, but close enough. The owner was easy to reach with questions and offered suggestions of activities and restaurants in the area.

The property was amazing, beautiful views, very spacious, and beautifully decorated.

  • 4 of 5

It was an awesome stay here, there was plenty of room for my group and Judy was great with providing information about the area. The pictures of this house do not do it justice, it is much nicer in person, which was a pleasant surprise seeing as how nice it looked via the pictures posted. The only negative was there were spiders in so many corners of this house, I woke up with a few bites as did a few other people in the group. So you might want to get the place sprayed soon for the coming winter months to keep the creepy crawlers away. Also we were barely able to throw any trash away because the trash can was already more than halfway full. That was a bummer, we took as much with us as possible but there was so much seeing as we cooked every day, in the gorgeous kitchen with all dishes supplied may I add, that our cars were full. Lastly, we were so excited to use the ping pong table but one of the handles was so flimsly it was unusable and the garage smelled a little musty, as if there was a cat was doing its business in there. Other than those few concerns, it was a perfect stay. Judy was a delight and eager to help us out, I would stay here again in a heartbeat. The deck was awesome, the barbecue worked perfectly, the fire pit was perfect for lounging and s’mores, and the house was decorated so nicecly. There are also plenty of games, movies, and books around the house which came in handy. But just a PSA, that driveway is steep and there is a pipeline of some sort poking out so if your car is lower to the ground (like mine) I would just park on the street because you will scrape very intensely. I thought I cracked my oil pan for a second lol.

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for Comicon Week. What you see in the pictures is even more stunning when you're there. The deck, scenery, and the neighborhood are perfect. Judy is very accommodating and a great host. Follow the house rules and you'll be fine. You can also review the rules as there is a rule book with Calvin and Hobbes comic strip on it. Just be mindful of the neighbors at night when hanging out at the deck. Overall it was a great experience. Thank you for having us Judy!

Beautiful property, great location

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely pleased by the house, there was plenty of space for the 5 of us and enjoyed every minute on the deck. Judy left great instructions and options for attractions, restaurants and markets nearby. We really enjoyed our time and would absolutely return to the home. Thanks so much for being such a great host!

Had great 3 day stay

  • 5 of 5

We used this house as a base for sightseeing in San Diego. We could get to most of the tourist attractions in 20 to 30 minutes drive. Everything in the house was as described. The hot tub was great. Also the house is near the top of a hill so the view was good. The kitchen was fairly recent remodel with all we needed. Neighbors live on lower level but they were quiet and were friendly. The yard is very large and nicely landscaped.
