Quiet house in great Hillcrest neighborhood. Open floor plan and large deck overlooking serene bird filled canyon. Walk two blocks to Balboa Park, Museums, World Famous San Diego Zoo, Hillcrest restaurants and bars. Driveway parking and easy street parking too! Queen beds in large bedrooms. This is a great family neighborhood.
Come and enjoy a great vacation in a great neighborhood. Finish each night with a barbecue and a drink on the deck.
PLEASE NOTE - I keep the online calendar VERY accurate. When I receive a deposit, I immediately mark the days on the calendar. A marked day means that the house is rented for that evening. So if you reserved for 7/2-7/5 I would mark of 7/2,7/3 & 7/4, NOT 7/5 since you would be leaving that morning.
I purchased this house as my residence. I've since purchased another house around the corner and I am living in it and restoring it. In the meantime, I am renting our my original house on VRBO. My VRBO property is my preferred place to live but for now I am renting it.
JAMES MCDERMOTT purchased this house in 1996
I've lived in San Diego since 1989 and have always lived in the neighborhood where I own 3 properties including the one I rent on VRBO.
The canyon, the canyon, the canyon! It is full of wildlife, it is very peaceful and in the summer the cool breezes that come up the canyon from San Diego Bay are so pleasant.
Our family of four had a wonderful 9-days stay in this charming and comfortable little house. We particularly enjoyed its privacy without vis-à-vis, large living and dining room opening to a spacious deck that is overlooking trees. Its large closets offer ample storage space. The location at about 15 minutes walking distance to restaurants, Whole Food market and the beautiful Balboa Park is ideal. The quiet street with easy parking is an added convenience. We appreciated being provided with fans in each room, many towels and household products. We cannot wait to return to this little gem house for another perfect vacation!
We needed temporary housing until construction on our new home was completed. The location is very conveniently and centrally located in the city and close to freeway access. We have a cat and appreciated that the owner allowed pets. The neighborhood is quiet and safe and parking for two cars on the street was never a problem. We originally planned to stay about a month and ended up staying almost three months. The house and furnishing are a bit worn which makes it feel and live like a beach house. The TV is newer with cable and there is a wireless network, although a bit slow at times. The owner, James, was very responsive to all inquires or requests and wanted to be sure we were comfortable.
This house was perfect for us - my wife and I wanted to spend Thanksgiving weekend with her 79 yr old parents. Kitchen was fully stocked - we cooked a great Thanksgiving meal - and many others. Bedrooms were generously large and beds were comfortable. The area was very convenient in a beautiful neighborhood - 2 blocks from Balboa Park with a "park-like" feel in the back yard. The house seemed to get a lot of use, but it was also well cared for. I highly recommend.
Great location, the house was nice and charming. We were a family of 4 and had everything we needed. The bedrooms were spacious and beds were comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped and we enjoyed home made dinner every night - it helped us to stay in the budget and spend the days touring beautiful San Diego. Will definitely recommend to families!
We loved our stay at this lovely Hillcrest home! The open floor plan is great and it was very clean. There were 5 of us and 2 dogs and we never felt like we were stepping over each other in the home (well maybe the dogs because they are always underfoot!). Plenty of shopping close by: Trader Joes, Whole Foods, Ralphs. Close enough to he beach. Loved the serenity of the patio. I wouldn't hesitate to book this home again on our next trip to San Diego. Thank you James for opening up your house to us. :)
