Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 3 Parking Spaces, 35ft Pool, Large Deck, Views, Jet-Tub

Modern Urban Retreat, Perfect Central Location

This home is perfect for visitors of San Diego who want to stay very close to all of the city’s major attractions (San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park with museums and theaters, Sea World, downtown Gaslamp district, beaches) and be within walking distance to numerous restaurants and bars, while still having the option to chill by a large pool and fire pit in a canyon setting. Also just 14 mins to the airport or beach!

Description:

The Space

The property offers a mix of traditional and modern architecture, with contemporary amenities and a zen front garden with water fountain that is frequently visited by hummingbirds and dragonflies. San Diego’s famously perfect weather all year-round lends itself well to outdoor living every month of the year. The pool patio with wooden deck above a canyon features a large swimming pool, a fire pit with comfortable seating area, landscaping, and a dining table and grill for barbecuing on those many warm Southern California evenings. A truly magical location to enjoy sunset. This home is a rare find in the densely populated urban center of San Diego, where large canyon-side pools are very hard to find.

The house itself sleeps 6 adults in maximum comfort (extra children can also be accommodated with air beds). It offers one master bedroom with King-sized ultra-plush bed and en-suite bathroom (with two person shower) upstairs and two bedrooms (one with medium-firm Queen-sized bed and one with two TwinXL memory-foam beds that can be converted into one true king bed) downstairs. There is a modern bathroom with large jetted tub/shower combination and luxurious European hardware conveniently located between the two downstairs bedrooms. All bedrooms are appointed with high-thread-count sheets, high-end mattresses, and luxurious towels. The gourmet contemporary kitchen features a 6-burner Dacor dual-fuel range, top-of-the-line Bosch dishwasher, microwave/convection oven, large 42" French-door refrigerator and is stocked with plates, glasses, silverware, pots & pans, and anything else that you might need for a meal cooked and enjoyed at home. The dining room table comfortably seats 8 people. We hope that you will enjoy the living room with its modern furniture, a 52” TV & surround sound audio with Cable access, and lovely view of the beautiful pool area (pool can be heated at additional cost). The long driveway along the side of the house can easily accommodate three cars. Additionally there is a washer/dryer hidden in the kitchen. WiFi access throughout the property facilitates 50Mbps internet access.

The Neighborhood

The home is located on a small street in San Diego’s Hillcrest/Mission Hills residential neighborhood. Hillcrest’s lively, diverse, and eclectic center with countless restaurants and bars is about a 10-minute walk away. We are located 1.3 miles from beautiful Balboa Park with close to 20 museums, gardens, and theaters, 2 miles from the San Diego Zoo, 3.8 miles from San Diego’s famous downtown Gaslamp district with bars, restaurants and shops, 5.8 miles from Sea World, 3.6 miles from the airport, and 6 – 8 miles from some of the city’s most beautiful beaches. The nearest grocery store is less than a 10-minute walk away from the house.

Why Jesse Menczer chose Hillcrest

This was my primary home, I'm renting since I moved out. Many many upgrades for the enthusiastic chef. The home has a tranquil vibe and amazing canyon/pool side experiences. BBQ and dine in a canyon at sunset in a resort like setting!

Perfect Meeting Place

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place that we could spend a quiet weekend with another couple that lives in the area. Centrally located and close to the airport. We love Hillcrest it has a great vibe and fun restaurants and bars. Jesse made sure everything was good to go. This was our our second time there and we will use it again when we come back.

Great place for family and business!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property and wonderful hosts. The view from the back deck was amazing and the pool was great. Also a wonderful area for food and drink. We'll be back next year.

I had my family in for a few days then transitioned to a work house for a conference at the convention center. It was a great place with the kids and was an easy drive to the convention center each day.

Family fun in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

The house and pool were perfect. The layout of the house really made it easy for two families to stay comfortably and it is air conditioned. The kitchen was amazing and there was a wonderful Zen garden to sit in to get away from the pool area. The BBQ, pool, fire pit and outdoor seating area were wonderful all day and into the evening. The owner, Jesse, was very responsive although we did not have any problems. The location is perfect for access to Balboa Park, the Zoo, Liberty Market, Old Town, La Jolla Beach, and we used Uber to get to the Gaslight area for dinner. A large grocery store, several coffee places, restaurants, and bakeries are within easy walking distance. Great place to stay for the long July 4th weekend.

We enjoyed our stay. The house is walking distance to many restaurants, close to Balboa Park and downtown. The house was clean with all needed amenities. The kids especially loved the pool.
