The home is furnished with antiques and art to fit the period of the home, so families with children should use caution.
Many of the homes in Banker's Hill are designated as historically significant - check local listing for Garden and Home tours. It's walking distance to Balboa Park and the many museums there. Only 5 minutes to the famous San Diego Zoo, 10 minutes to Sea World and the Airport but the home is secluded and quiet.
The great restaurants and night life of Hillcrest, Banker's Hill, Little Italy, the Gas Lamp District, Seaport Village and San Diego Convention Center are just 3 to 10 minutes away; not to mention the shopping at Fashion Valley. Beaches and the bay are also close by, and we're freeway close for trips to nearby La Jolla, Del Mar, Coronado, Legoland and all that San Diego has to offer.

We could not have been happier with our stay! This VRBO has everything for a perfect vacation: beautiful house, great location, and responsive owners. The charming house is handsomely decorated with spacious rooms and more than every convenience and need of home. It lives up to the photos, and more. We ate all of our breakfasts and had cocktail hours in the secluded back yard. It is quiet, relaxing, and nicely landscaped. We really enjoyed walking around the lovely residential neighborhood with its great history. It was also a short walk to Balboa Park and several shops and restaurants. Within a mile are the fantastic eateries of Bankers Hill in one direction and lively shopping in Hillcrest in the other direction. The owners have an incredibly helpful binder filled with everything you need to know about the house, the neighborhood (restaurant suggestions and even a great walking tour) and San Diego as a whole. They were very responsive prior to our arrival and at our departure. We had no questions or problems while we stayed but I have no doubt that the owners would have been on top of anything ASAP. We couldn't recommend this rental more highly.
Excellent location within walking distance of restaurants and entertainment! The beautifully decorated home is immaculate and well-outfitted with top-notch appliances. The outdoor spaces were also tranquil and relaxing: water fountain, grill, outdoor patio.
The owners are very personable and had great recommendations for dining and sightseeing.
Would definitely stay here again!
The house is in a wonderful location just blocks away from Balboa park. Despite the central location, it was a very quiet area. The house is very open, quaint, yet had excellent updates. The owners are incredibly nice and responsive. If we come back to San Diego, we'll definitely stay here again! Highly recommend.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay at your property! It is very charming and in a great location. We enjoyed the weekend and the ambiance of the neighborhood including great restaurants and access to Balboa Park amenities. We will definitely keep it on our go to list of places to stay and recommend in San Diego. Very well done renovation and extremely well decorated! Great art collection and love all the little touches!
My husband, daughter and I stayed here in February for a week (along with my 70 y.o. parents) to escape Seattle gloom. The house was beautiful and in an amazing historical location. Warm, inviting.... the beds comfortable and private baths for each bedroom which was perfect for us. The house was spotless and fully equipped.
The owners were SO nice and attentive and really easy to deal with. The kitchen was well stocked and just to die for! So beautiful! I loved the art and style of the house, so many beautiful things. They've done a great job maintaining the original charm while doing many modern upgrades. Charm!
We picked fresh lemons for our fish one night and had a fire on chilly evenings (we were there during a bizarre cold snap) and slept so well.... it was so quiet. The fountain off the DR was so lovely. We loved watching the visiting hummingbirds taking baths every morning. Perfect. Will definitely stay again! As former VRBO owners, we've stayed in quite a few and are experienced in the "rental biz". This house.... highly recommended!
It was such a pleasure to stay in at this beautiful home in Banker's Hill. The gourmet kitchen was a joy to prepare our breakfasts which we then enjoyed outside in the sunny and tranquil back garden. The house has been beautifully restored and we appreciated the comfort and ambience. The neighborhood is wonderful with great restaurants, stores and cafes and we enjoyed several walks exploring the lovely old homes in the area. Banker's Hill is very central and it's easy to travel and explore the San Diego area. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to our friends.
5 Minutes to Balboa Park and San Diego Zoo. Walk to Hillcrest Restaurants and Shops. 5 Minutes to San Diego Airport But Very Quiet Neighborhood. Close to Sea World, the Freeway, GasLamp District, Convention Center, Beaches, and All San Diego Has to Offer.
