“Casa California” is my colorful 3-bedroom, 1-bath apartment with a backyard in historic and trendy North Park. Just 3 miles from downtown and the convention center and around the corner from public transport, which can take you San Diego “must-sees” like the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park, Convention Center as well as the sun-drenched beaches that make us famous.
Take your morning coffee to the balcony, which has a view of North Park, spend your day at the beach and then gather for a BBQ in the backyard (shared with the other two units) with a BBQ grill, outdoor seating, yard games...even a hammock.
This rental is one of 3 that I own within this cheery and updated 100-year-old building. Have some additional friends coming with you to SD? Rent all 3 apartment to sleep up to 20 guests total. Multiple kitchens and living areas are a bonus for a big group and the backyard is perfect for a family BBQ.
NOTE: North Park is a residential neighborhood and is not a place for big loud parties. Small gatherings with family and friends are totally fine and this is just the place for it; just please let me know in advance if you plan to invite guests who are not included in your reservation and turn the volume down after 10pm. Our friends, who live next door, will let me know if there is a big party going on!
Bedrooms include 2 with queen-size beds and one with a twin-over-queen bunk bed. 2 fold out sofas sleeps2 more for up to 9 guests total - perfect for multi-family trips and couples getaways.
Most bedrooms let you keep your luggage out of the way, thanks to big walk-in closets. But you can pack light: there’s a coin-operated washer and dryer in the basement.
Yep, that’s a disco ball you see in the living area! This rental was designed to be lively, colorful, and inviting, with its own retro-California flavor. Lots of primary colors and fun patterns in the bedrooms and living area, plus rich hardwood floors and mid-century-inspired design -- like the dining table with tulip chairs. All of the other furnishings are brand-new, too.
Other goodies at the apartment: Free WiFi throughout, air-conditioning, and a flat-screen TV with Netflix. Parking is on the street, but usually no problem to find a spot!
Stay in or head out; eat, drink and play in North Park, Hillcrest or downtown in the Gaslamp or convention center; relax on the balcony and enjoy the sweeping views. And most importantly - have fun! (And let me know how I can help.)
You will have the entire apartments and their balconies to yourself. The backyard is shared with the other unit in the building.
Interaction with Guests
I'm just a e-mail, text message, or call away! I can guide you through the check-in process, as well as answer any questions you have while you’re here. San Diego is my favorite city in the world, and I live for helping guests discover why I love it so much.
My neighborhood, North Park/Hillcrest, is one of San Diego’s most historic and funky places to be. It's home to artists, local businesses, a Farmers Market, craft beer, wine bars, sushi spots, handmade ice cream, and your pick of brunch options. Guests love Hillcrest and North Park’s neighborhood vibe, and if you want more it’s just 3 miles from downtown and The Gaslamp as well as the convention center. Century-old architecture and the ringing of church bells during the day in North Park add to its historic feel. And my house fits right in!
No need to worry about a car. You have your pick of coffee shops, restaurants and boutiques just a few blocks away. Easy public transport is just around the corner, taking you to downtown and all places San Diego. Uber rides are quick and convenient, too, getting you into downtown in less than 5 minutes.
