Bustling Hillcrest, the Gaslamp District, and Little Italy are just minutes away by car. The World Famous Zoo and Sea World are just a few minutes away. Or stay home and enjoy a quiet restful time, with a fully renovated house that includes a large deck in the back with a view of the lovely wooded canyon and view to San Diego Bay.

About Mark and Susan Brandon
Native San Diegans. Together for 30 years, Susan and Mark are now your hosts for a vacation rental that provides all the modern amenities in the restful comfort of old Craftsman. Susan has worked as a chef at a local B & B and created sensational breakfasts for their guests. She has been trained locally and in France. Mark has worked as a professional in the immediate area for 30 years and is now retired.

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.

Susan & Mark are great Hosts.
The property was perfect and extremely clean.
Great Location as well. Five Stars all the way!
This home has everything and anything you could need. Susan was a wonderful hostess and offered us a delicious homemade coffee cake upon arrival. The view and location are perfect. There is a cute coffee shop within walking distance and sightseeing destinations are nearby. We would definitely stay here again when visiting San Diego. Thanks, Susan.
The location was excellent, we were able to get to the Balboa Park, the zoo, airport, fishing and beaches easily. I can't say enough positive things about the property, everything is top of the line, including the hospitality. We loved the house, the neighborhood, it was clean and had everything we needed plus some.
High quality throughout the house!
We rented this house 2 years ago and were pleased that it was open for our Labor Day weekend visit this year.
What can I say about it that hasn’t been said by all the other renters? There is a food processor in the kitchen! I’ve never had a rental with a kitchen so well equipped.
The photos,descriptions and reviews are 100% accurate. Susan is a responsible and responsive. Thanks for having us and remembering our daughters engagement from our last stay! Debbie from Tucson
I am so grateful for the referral I received from a friend for this vacation home! Traveling with 2 little ones is never easy but this home took all the worries away! Its located in a comfy safe neighborhood located near shops, grocery stores and a short drive from major attractions. We will definitely be staying here for our next San Diego stay!! Thank you so much for your hospitality!!
