About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 6 (4 adults)

Surround yourself with charm and character at this two-bedroom San Diego bungalow, a neighborhood home with a front porch, a private patio and outdoor kitchen, and an enviably walkable location close to parks and restaurants.

This eclectic cottage is located in the University Heights neighborhood, only two blocks from the beloved summer concerts at Old Trolley Barn Park. It's also just two miles north of the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park and four miles from the atmospheric Gaslamp Quarter.

Step inside to find classic craftsman details, a whimsical art collection, and comfortable furnishings. Come home from your daily bike ride to relax on the breezy front porch, recline on one of the sofas, or catch your favorite show on the flatscreen cable TV.

The full kitchen offers a variety of culinary tools for cooking enthusiasts, while the nearby Sprouts Farmers Market features a bounty of fresh ingredients. As you sit down for dinner in the four-person dining room, play a record on the turntable to provide a relaxing vacation soundtrack.

And there's no better place to enjoy the San Diego sunshine than on the lovely stone patio, which features fabric canopies, an outdoor kitchen with a stainless steel gas grill, and a table and chairs for al fresco meals and gatherings.

This two-bedroom, one-bathroom home will sleep as many as six people (including a maximum of four adults). The master bedroom has a queen bed with plentiful built-in storage space, while the guest room offers a queen Murphy bed and a second flatscreen TV. Two twin-size futons are provided as well.

In addition to the space for six guests, one dog is invited as well for an additional pet fee.

As one of the most beloved destinations in Southern California for its balmy weather and outdoor-oriented lifestyle, San Diego is an ideal destination for families and groups of friends. Spend your days exploring the 100-acre San Diego Zoo, which houses 3,500 endangered and rare animals; catch a summer concert at Trolley Barn Park; or enjoy dinner and drinks in the romantic Gaslamp Quarter.

Come and experience the fun-loving character of San Diego - this wonderful neighborhood getaway will make you feel right at home!

*Please note that all guests must be 25 or older unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian!

About Vacasa, CA - San Diego County Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Home away from home!!

This place was perfect!!!! <br />

Husband & I used to live in San Diego for 8 years, <br />

We moved back up north about 2 years now and recently had our first child so<br />

We decided to celebrate our 9 year anniversary with our San Diego Family and introduce them our first child! <br />

This little gem was clean, comfy and provided everything we needed ! The neighborhood was quiet, neighbors were so friendly and your located right in the heart of Univeristy Heights,close to great restaurants, good coffee and brews!! <br />

We definitely look forward to booking this beautiful home again!!

SD visit with Kids

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a few days with our three year old twins. The location was perfect - so much to walk to and a wonderful park with playground just a block away. Really hope to stay here again on our next visit.

Adorable and Charming!

  • 5 of 5

Our family with two teens and our pup had a wonderful staycation here while our home was being tented. A very cool little lane with the best restaurants nearby...try the Assyrian place! We got takeout and enjoyed the amazing backyard, then went for walks afterwards.

This home is beautiful...we have a 1912 Craftsman and appreciate the details. It was immaculate and had everything we could possibly need.

We just loved it and if we have friends or family visiting, we will encourage them to stay here!

Little slice of heaven in a bungalow

  • 5 of 5

This house was incredible! Very well maintained with everything you need! The mattress was extremely comfortable and there were plenty of children's books and toys to keep my little ones occupied. The outside BBQ and patio was beautiful! New grill and outdoor kitchen with a very well maintained garden to make you feel like you are in paradise. Property manager was very easy to get a hold of and the house is within walking distance to quite a few restaurants. Good ones too! The house wasn't too hard to find and you get 2 parking spots which is very difficult in this area. Would absolutely recommend this house.

Short Stay but LOVED it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and pup had a lovely &quot;Staycation&quot; here while we tented our local home for termites. Though the tenting process is onerous, this actually turned into a lovely few days away...and all because of this charming, warm home. You sense the character and happiness that exudes from this cottage!
