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.

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.

San Diego Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED staying at the Casita and highly recommend it to anyone traveling to San Diego! Jim and Lynne were delightful and we had a wonderful time there! Everything was very clean and perfect for us. Not only was the Casita great but their gardens were wonderful too. We enjoyed listening to the waterfall and being surrounded by lovely plants. If we visit San Diego again, we would definitely stay there.

A beautifully decorated and fully appointed studio in a quiet, walkable neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Jim and Lynne are wonderful and responsive hosts. They’ve designed a perfect vacation space in a central spot in San Diego. The Casita truly feels like a home, and parking couldn’t be more convenient. The bathroom is cozy but the rest of the studio is light and spacious and completely private - this is a stand-alone studio. Noiseless ceiling fan makes sleeping very comfortable. Very quiet and dark at night. Fully supplied with kitchen and linen items, and spotlessly clean. We are frequent travelers and this is an amazing value. We’ll be back!
