Mark and Susan Brandon purchased this House in 2010
Why Mark and Susan Brandon chose Mission Hills
San Diego is a favorite vacation spot and we are ideally located in an urban neighborhood that is walking distance to many fine restaurants. We are also close to three parks, including Balboa Park, which is one of the nation's largest intra-city parks (larger than Central Park in New York). The Park itself is quite an attraction, but it also contains the world-famous San Diego Zoo. Other destinations are within 5 to 15 minutes away. To the West are the Bay and airport (3 miles) and the beaches (7 miles), to the South are Petco Park and the Gaslamp Quarter (4 miles), the Convention Center (3 miles), and Downtown (1-2 miles), and to the North are La Jolla (12 miles), the Del Mar Fair and Racetrack (seasonal)(20 miles). Legoland is North of the City, about 30 minutes away. Temecula wineries and the Safari Park are farther North, about 45 minutes away. In the South Bay, there is Aquatica Waterpark (formerly Soak City) about 25 minutes away. There are thousands of hotel rooms available, but there is only one house like this one, quiet and relaxed with a lovely view of a wooded canyon. Yet we are accessible to everything. When you stay here, it will be your home away from home. Take a calming walk through an old-style neighborhood, or make it a purposeful walk to a fine restaurant. You are free to set your own schedule, no common areas or parking attendants, park your car and go out whenever you wish.

Very nice clean house in good location. Would stay here again
This is such a lovely house with an open layout and in a great neighborhood. We were able to walk to grocery stores, etc.
A new favorite VRBO
Everything was amazing about the place. Super clean, quiet neighborhood with lots of places within walking distance including a grocery store. Owner was very gracious and checked in to see if we needed anything. She let us borrow beach chairs and an umbrella. She even left us with some snacks and a beautiful pound cake upon our arrival. These guys do it right from start to finish. The view outside the back patio is amazing. Super close to the beach 15 minute Uber ride. Will definitely stay again. The ONLY thing we didn’t like (which won’t stop us from staying again) is that there is no door to the master bathroom and toilet area for privacy when using the restroom. Not a big deal but you get it.. Thank you Mark and Susan for a great stay!
Birthday celebration gathering.
We had a wonderful time celebrating our son’s birthday celebration. The home is perfect with wonderful views. The home was very comfortable. Nice open floor plan. Near old town. Nicely centralized. I will try to rent it again soon. Thank you Susan for being so accommodating. Nice n clean home.
Couldn’t hope for a better experience!!!
There is so much to do in San Diego! I traveled here with my wife and 2 year old daughter. Everything to do for us was all within a 10 minute drive of this property.
Parking was pretty easy everywhere we went. La Jolla was a 30 minute drive north (would have been 10-15 with no traffic) but very relaxing when we arrived, just had to be patient for parking.
This property has everything a family needs. The appliances are top of the line (Viking oven, Samsung refrigerator, I think a LG or GE washer and dryer... etc)
Susan met us when we got there and gave us a quick tour of the place. She even purchased a new set of beach toys for our daughter. The second morning we were on our way to the zoo and when we opened our door there was a cooler with ice packs ready to go.
The neighborhood is nice, quiet, and safe. The house is especially clean, well taken care of, and amazing.
Thank you Mark and Susan for the great stay!
P.S. La Jolla is great. Try to get there before 9:30 am
The zoo is fun but we had the most fun in the evening. There were shows and is was a little cooler outside.
Wonderful stay in San Diego
We enjoyed our stay in Mission Hills! This rental will exceed your expectations. It was immaculately clean and had every comfort of home. The back deck became our favorite place to enjoy the perfect San Diego weather. Did I mention Susan’s famous coffee cake which welcomed us? Great kitchen. Beautiful view. Comfortable beds. Updated bathrooms. This is a great place to stay and we hope to return on future trips.
