About Jim and Lynne Manner

We currently live in the front house of the property and have been in our home since 1982. We found this lovely property on the way to a Charger game and couldn't resist the custom Spanish style of this 1920's era two on one. We started out renting and we were fortunate to have the opportunity to purchase the property. We were even more fortunate to be married in the back yard; all six kids and one happy St. Bernard. We both grew up elsewhere in California, but we met in San Diego and have lived in our home for 30+ years and can not imagine leaving. The back house (casita) was a rental when we bought and was kept as a rental for most of our time here. Recently, we remodeled and upgraded the cottage into the casita.

Jim and Lynne Manner purchased this studio in 1983

Why Jim and Lynne Manner chose University Heights

We bought here because our work was nearby and schools for our children were close. We are now retired and our children have left the roost. Our home is situated right in the middle of everything that is inviting in San Diego. Neighborhood restaurants and coffee houses are within four blocks. We are very close to high-end shopping malls, the Gaslamp District downtown, Balboa Park, the Zoo, beaches, ball parks, and just 1+ hour from the beautiful and very quaint historic mountain town of Julian.

What makes this studio unique

The casita is located in a quiet neighborhood that is walking friendly and very close to freeway access in all directions as well as public transportation.

San Diego vacation 2018

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! Jim and Lynne's Casita is perfect! Located in a quiet neighborhood, centrally located to all the city's attractions (less than 20 minutes away from most beaches, all the major exhibits and Balboa Park/Zoo), and recommendations for a variety of restaurants and grocery stores in University Heights and near-by neighborhoods. Their space is beautifully laid out, everything you could possibly need for a home away from home. Parking space next to the front door was great! Lovely patio for early morning coffee or evening wine. Traveled with our granddaughter, and she had her choice of the sofa or a comfortable futon with extra pillows and blankets. Full sized appliances in the kitchen and plenty of pots, pans and spices for quick meals. Beach towels are available too! We highly recommend staying at the Casita, would return for another visit!

Awesome Stay in Cute Casita

  • 5 of 5

We have been to San Diego many times, but this was our first stay in this area (University Heights). We are really glad we stayed in the Casita since this place was great! Pretty much everything needed was available for our month long stay from cooking spices to every needed appliance - they even had a rice cooker. The location was terrific - close to good restaurants, Balboa Park, major highways, etc. The hosts, Lynne and Jim, were friendly, responsive and overall great folks. The Casita is behind their house and they shared their beautiful gardens, outdoor grill and even their pups with us. The only thing missing was a washer and dryer, but their is a self-serve laundromat right down the street and they offered a wash & fold service for a nominal cost.

We highly recommend this place. If in this area again, we would stay in the Casita if it was available.

Wonderful, the second time around!

  • 5 of 5

We love this casita! It's a small but efficiently arranged venue designed with southwest flair that's fully equipped and simply adorable. With access to the a peaceful, colorful garden, two delightful dogs, and a short walk to many restaurants up and down Park Avenue, it's a great location for both active tourists and those who, like us, just want a quiet place to relax. The on-site, reserved parking spot right next to the casita is a terrific plus, too, since parking in the vicinity is at a premium. Our sincere thanks to the owners, who are lovely people, always welcoming and helpful but never intrusive. This was our second stay at the Casita and would recommend it to anyone considering a stay there.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Casita was wonderful. Jim and Lynne were terrific hosts!!!! The Casita is in a great location, walking distance to nice restaurants and pubs. It was very clean and has everything you need for a stay in San Diego. We were there for a week and the accommodations were perfect. Comes stocked with all necessary cooking utensils, pots, pans etc..There was a very nice bottle of wine and some cookies waiting for us upon our arrival. Jim and Lynne have a beautiful backyard and allowed us to enjoy every inch of it. They have propane heaters for a beer and glass of wine outside on cool evening as well as a propane fire place. They are very friendly as were there four legged family members Hattie and Lou!! We will only stay at the Casita whenever we visit San Diego!!! Bill Davis and Mary Katharine Fowler, Crofton, Md.
