Overview

About the property

Fabulous 1 bed, 1 bath - total renovation with backyard grill, ping pong

# 13 on Forbes' list of the 'hippest' neighborhoods in the US, North Park is a vibrant, diverse urban village with a life of its own. Conveniently located near terrific restaurants, cafes and nightlife as well as Balboa Park, San Diego Zoo, downtown San Diego and Coronado Island, this location can't be beat.

Our 1926 Spanish villa -- 'Villa Barajas' -- combines historic character with modern features. We restored this place for everyone to enjoy the kind of travel experience we most appreciate ourselves -- authentic local living, in luxury style, with the comforts of home! Serene, comfortable, private and yet so accessible to what's happening in the village!

The Baker's Suite (#3321) is a cozy, compact 1 bed, 1 bath (just under 400 SF), ideal for two, but can accommodate up to 2 adults with 1-2 children using the comfortable full size sofa bed (auto inflating air mattress). Overall, the feel is organic, clean lined, modern and very warm and inviting -- The French baker's table used for dining was made from reclaimed 19th century scaffolding.

Gorgeous original hardwood floors, exposed brick, fine cabinetry and furnishings, deep Euro tub/shower, central heat/AC, washer and dryer in suite, all new fully equipped kitchen and bath.

We also provide amenities to get your trip started the right way -- K-cup and French press coffee makers, beach towels, blow dryer, iron, luggage rack, shampoo and conditioner, shower gel, hand soaps, laundry detergent, paper products. The kitchen is fully equipped with cookware, dishware, utensils, spices...pretty much whatever you'll need. There is free WIFI and smart TV -- Stream Netflix and Pandora while you relax or enjoy a light meal in the suite.

We have a 50mb WIFI network in the unit -- nice and fast -- and 4 other networks in the building, all of which are accessible to all guests, so if your WIFI happens to go down, just tie into any one of the other 4!

Spacious grounds with gas grill, ping pong table and delightful seating areas. There is parking for your car on the property. Parking on surrounding streets also is free and typically available.

Walk just two blocks to terrific restaurants -- Italian, French, Mexican, Asian, Vegetarian, Sushi, Pizza -- as well as cafes, breakfast places, home-baked goods, micro brewery, wine bar. Enjoy "La Perla" gourmet tacos with a short or tall brew under the stars. The ramen/noodle house "Underbelly" hops -- there's communal outdoor seating around firepits that make this a lively social spot day or night. Our guests also love "The Smoking Goat" french bistro. A few blocks more and there's a weekly farmer's market (every Thursday), more wine bars, artisan pizza, Asian fusion, American/Californian, homemade ice cream...too many places to list.

With all this eating and imbibing, you may want to get your fitness fix as well, or tune up your mind/body connection, and North Park has yoga, pilates, dance, boxing, various full service gyms...there's even a pole dancing school, for the daring amongst us.

Then again, you're here to enjoy the outdoors, right?

So walk a few blocks to Balboa Park! -- community pool, tennis, golf, hiking and running trains, bike track, bocce court, picnic area, children's play area. On the farther side of Balboa Park, still walking distance (20-30 minutes) or a short ride, are San Diego Zoo, museums and Old Globe Theater.

Drive 5-9 minutes to downtown destinations or take the bus one block away (about 20 minutes with stops) -- The GasLamp Quarter, Little Italy, Seaport Village, Convention Center, Petco Park. Drive 10 min over the bridge to Coronado Island's beautiful beaches and the famous Hotel Del Coronado -- This is the best spot for a beach day, with a huge stretch of beautiful fine sand beach, a promenade for strolling or peddling along the water, beach chair and cabana cover rentals, peddle car rentals, oceanfront restaurants, lounges, cafes and shops. Or, drive 10-15 minutes to other central San Diego beaches (Mission Beach, Pacific Beach, Ocean Beach) and other major attractions, including Seaworld.

Additional information about rental rates

Property Damage Protection C$80.62
Refundable Damage Deposit C$341.62
Check-out Cleaning C$136.65
Tax Rate 10.5%

Rates in table are representative and may vary based on number of occupants and specific dates requested. Rates and minimum stays during holidays and special events, such as Comic-Con, are typically higher. San Diego requires that occupancy taxes be charged for stays of fewer than 31 nights (10.5%). Cleaning fee, insurance and refundable security deposit are additional. Rates are subject to change until reservation has been confirmed.

For stays of one month or more, we charge for bi-weekly cleaning, in addition to a final cleaning fee. This will not be auto-generated via a reservation request -- We will need to revise the quote to include the biweekly cleanings.

Many people ask about this: We include a third party damage protection policy in our quotes, which is a nonrefundable fee. The policy protects you and us. With the policy in place, we're able to charge a very low cash security deposit that covers minor damages (such as stained towels or linens or broken plates). The insurance policy covers more significant accidental damages (for example, to furniture, floors, appliances, counters, walls, mirrors, plumbing fixtures, lamps, window glass and coverings, other elements). The insurance also enables you to recover your security deposit in the event of a qualified incident. VRBO offers you the option of either purchasing the insurance policy we've quoted or paying an additional refundable security deposit equal to the coverage/face value of the policy. For example, suppose we are charging $250 refundable security and you opt NOT to purchase the insurance (which in this example has a coverage value of $1,500) -- Your new combined REFUNDABLE security deposit would be $250 + $1500 = $1,750. Please note the price of the insurance policy and coverage amount are subject to change.
