About Jim and Dayna Grow
We are a retired couple who occupy the home on a part time basis.
Jim and Dayna Grow purchased this House in 2001
Why Jim and Dayna Grow chose Mount Helix
This home has been lovingly cared for by the owners. It is a home that is shared with family, friends and guests. All the proceeds that are generated by the home go back into the house for continued upgrades and enhancements. Recently the Grows replaced all the windows in the house and upgraded the appliances. New large glass sliding doors were added to the living room to enhance the fantastic view. The Grows love sharing their home and continue to work on it keeping it in the best condition.
What makes this House unique
The Avocado House is very unique. It has a "feel" of being in the country but is very conveniently located to everything. The property wraps around a hillside which gives visitors views from multiple angles. Patios circle the house and are connected by stone and tile walkways. Small gardens accompany the patios giving the house a secluded yet scenic setting. The owners have continued to upgrade the interior and exterior of the home since it was purchased in 2001. The bathrooms have all been upgraded as well as the kitchen. The home is very clean and well appointed. The design is new, bright and airy.

The Property itself was amazing. Great location and beautiful view. Plus close to shopping etc...
The house was big, and set up great for multiple families. The pool is warm and great to swim in if you have younger kids or weak swimmers. The view was incredible and the house is well stocked with everything you could need. However the owners do not do a walk through with you before your stay. After we left we hit blamed for breaking a kitchen drawer and a cement fish outside by the pool. Since we didn’t report it immediately they didn’t care. I would have never noticed if a cement fish as a pool decoration was broken during a walk through inspection. The kitchen drawer was broken when we first arrived but we didn’t bother telling the owners we just didn’t use that drawer. Our mistake because now we are paying for it. Definitely make sure to do a complete walk through and check every inch of the house before you start enjoying your vacation. I was hoping to walk into a home away from home and relax. Which we did but now I am paying for it. What a bummer. Guess we live and learn in the future though. We probably won’t be staying at this house again with kids. Too many small decorations they could potentially break or someone else could break and we get blamed for. Also it was extremely windy in the evenings and made the pool setting cold, another possibility of how the fish got broke. Good luck to the next people who stay here.
Beautiful Property in a Great Location
We stayed at the Avocado House from March 29th - April 6th, with another family, so we had four adults and 4 teenagers. The house was perfect for us!
The four bedrooms are very nicely appointed, and it's great that two of the bedrooms have king size beds. The kitchen is well-stocked with basic spices and cleaning supplies, and all of the utensils, eating and serving pieces you could need. Plenty of towels and extra paper products are on hand. There are two clothes washers and two dryers available, which was great to have.
The grounds of the property are fantastic. The heated pool was used daily by the kids, and the views are stunning. It was really nice to have more than one outdoor table. There was ample room in the driveway for the 2 SUVs we were driving.
The location is extremely convenient! Approximately 30 minutes from all of the main attractions, as well as groceries, fuel, fast food, Target, Starbucks, CVS all basically at the bottom of the hill from the home.
The homeowners were fantastic to work with! I coordinated the trip for both families, so I sent them several emails with various questions. Every correspondence that I had with them was warm, friendly, and responded to very quickly.
I highly recommend this property, and would definitely book here again!
Elegant with great views
Charming home on a private driveway overlooking the city. Spacious and clean with all the amenities you need to feel right at home. Great gem in the heart of El Cajon.
Thank you for your review. We really enjoyed having you and your family stay at the Avocado House!

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful house and would love to stay there every year and make many more great memories. The pool was so beautiful and relaxing. The garden areas were so beautiful and serene. The beds were so comfortable and everything was very clean. The kitchen was fully stalked, great for me who loves to cook. Shopping and everything we needed was close by. Thank you for sharing your lovely home!
Very accommodating and friendly host. House was well equipped. Enjoyed the pool. Thank you for the last minute details needed due to my last minute booking. Great set up for large groups.

Loved this house inside and out especially with the beautiful pool over looking the city just gorgeous. Everything is near by no need to travel far. The owners are great people and have a good response time to any situation that occurs. Would definitely rent out this house again!!!
Thank you so much! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay!
