BEAUTIFUL HOME IN HISTORIC BANKER'S HILL

Mission Hills House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

This very special historic home built in 1917 has over 2,100 sq. ft. of living space in a quiet cul-de-sac with Spruce Canyon across the street, but has been beautifully updated and offers all of the modern amenities for your stay in San Diego. The home was originally owned by Thekla Heath, a prominent scenic designer and local artist known for hosting artists and actors performing at the local theaters. For virtual tour, see link at the bottom of the page.

The kitchen offers a Viking 6 burner range with a griddle (great for pancakes on a lazy day) and two ovens, a super quiet Meile dishwasher, and a wine refrigerator. The home features an extra large Dining Room and Living Room for those nights when you feel like staying in. Each bedroom has their own TV, and the Master Bedroom and Den have 42' flat screens and DVD players. The Master bath has double sinks and extra large walk-in shower. The guest bathroom has it’s original Orchid colored bathtub! The Outdoor patio has a gas BBQ, outdoor table for six, additional outdoor seating and a fountain. The closest market is Whole Foods but Trader Joe's, Vons, wine shops and cheese shops are close by.

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.

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!

QUIET, BEAUTIFUL, EXCELLENT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
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.

A WONDERFUL HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
I rented this house for a week for myself, my mother and my small twins. What a gem! The house is beautiful and was perfect for our needs. It is equipped and decorated to the highest standard and it almost felt a shame to go out at all. The location is great as you are close to the airport and downtown attractions but have the peace and quiet of a residential area. The owners were very friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay here again if I have the opportunity.

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
I almost don't want to post a review, as this place is so spectacular, I'm afraid I won't be ale to book it the next time we go to S.D. Ideally located, beautifully furnished, spacious, fabulous kitchen, full dining room, lovely and comfortable outdoor space, this place has everything I could have asked for. I've booked several VRBO stays over the last few years, and this one was by far the best! My husband and I stayed there with our 2 teenagers, and the size of the house was definitely a plus, we never felt like we were on top of each other. We usually eat out a lot when we are traveling, but not here. The kitchen and dining room were so terrific that I made dinner for us there almost every night, and we had friends over! We were there as professionals at Comic-Con, and the Convention Center was a very short drive away (and quite close by bus, as well). And the Hillcrest area right around the corner had everything we could want, great grocery stores and restaurants (loved the Empirehouse for breakfast!).
Thank you so much for your wonderful house. We will be back!

A GREAT WEEK AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week in this beautiful home. Every detail of the interior and exterior was extraordinary. The location is perfect for all of the downtown area fun things to see and do and very convenient to the airport. We have been to SD many times and we enjoyed staying home reading, relaxing and spending time in the great garden area. A nice steak on the grill and a bottle of wine made for a perfect quiet evening.
