SAN DIEGO'S HISTORIC VICTORIAN TREASURE (DOWNTOWN)

San Diego House Rental Photos and Description

Sitting atop Banker's Hill, perhaps the most historic and romantic of San Diego's neighborhoods, is the Sherman Doig House (SDhouse). Built in 1887, this historic privately owned Victorian home is available for overnight stays and offers the intimacy of a bed and breakfast in the center of 'Americas Finest City'.

The rooms are charming and eclectic. The neighborhood is delightful and centrally located. Visit our web site for more info: sdhouse.us

As vrbo listers since 2007, we have had dozens of satisfied travelers stay in our original listing located nearby in Coronado. We purchased this magnificent historic Victorian home in 2013 and have completed some minor cosmetic modifications to accommodate those looking for a unique vacation rental.

Cassandra Stroud purchased this house in 2013

The home is currently under stewardship of the trustee of the Bertha Stroud Family Trust and was purchased not only to establish a legacy estate for the heirs of the trust, but to share this historic landmark with locals and visitors to San Diego. This property was chosen because, just like the namesake of the trust, it is eclectic, whimsical, and possesses a unconventional character that can best be described as eccentrically unique.

For travelers looking for the charm of a bed and breakfast, but prefer the privacy of a vacation rental with the ability to make their own meals - this home is a perfect choice.

Scroll down to 'my other listings' if you have a smaller group and would like only a portion of the house.

Additional information can also be found on our web site at sdhouse.us

The SDhouse is also available for event hourly rental and can supply optional concierge service to assist with any details.

PERFECT STAY

  • 5 of 5
To start we rented floors 2, 3, 4. There were 6 couples total. This house was amazing and has everything you need. Each couple has their own room and space is no problem here. We were celebrating a 30th birthday and the set up was ideal. The 3rd floor kitchen is the huge kitchen that was used to cook our side orders. The entrée was being bbq'd downstairs in the gas bbq grill. They have a table outside with chairs to enjoy your food. The house is also a cab ride away, under $10, to the famous gas lamp district. The owner is also very nice and considerate. To sum it all up it's perfect and will DEFINITELY will be going back again soon.

Thanks again Cassandra

LOVE THIS PLACE!!!

  • 5 of 5
I had such an amazing experience here! We were looking for a place that could accommodate a large group of people while also having a special experience and the SD House exceeded all expectations.

The house is located in between the vibrant streets of downtown San Diego and the quaint Bankers Hill neighborhood. We spent 4 days in the SD House and the location was one of the best aspects by far. Whether we were looking to hang out in downtown, head over to Coronado or go to La Jolla, the SD House was a great central location.

The house had everything we could possibly want and need. We took advantage of BOTH full kitchens nearly every night we were at the house, including the huge patio with the grill - this is where we spent the majority of our downtime. We were most pleased to find the house provided everything we could possibly need for the group meals. From slow cookers for meatballs to pitchers for margaritas, we were very impressed!

Parking was extremely generous, the streets were safe, and stores and restaurants were in walking distance. The house itself was VERY clean, beautifully decorated and provided several breathtaking views of San Diego. There was plenty space for everyone in our group. The third floor was by far the most popular with the full size kitchen (overlooking the bay!), several couches and of course the TV making it the ideal place to gather.

Needless to say, we cannot wait to come back. Our group had such a great experience and would highly recommend the SD House to anyone visiting San Diego!

I RENTED THE ENTIRE PROPERTY FOR 3 DAYS. OUTSTANDING!!!

  • 5 of 5
Simply stated the property and the location was absolutely fantastic. Every floor has its own personality and all 10 of us commented on how great the staying experience was. We were close to everything and felt safe walking to many of the tourist locations we visited. We were especially close to little Italy and the many fine restaurant located within the district. We also cooked several meals in the house and everything was just perfect. From the outside grill area that we used quite a bit to the formal dining room, we enjoyed it all. Thank you for having us and we will be back again.

SDhouse is located in the long established neighborhood Park West, an area which also acquired the name 'Bankers Hill' because of its reputation as a home for the affluent. Bankers Hill is an ideal place to go for an afternoon walk. The walk will offer you spectacular views of the city and the intrigue of some of San Diego's finest historic homes.

Some of the popular Bankers Hill restaurants include Bertrand at Mr. A's that has amazing views, Busalacci's, Cucina Urbana, The Hob Nob Cafe, and The Bankers Hill Restaurant. As a result of this idealistic location, the SDhouse is conveniently located to many attractions & amenities Bankers Hill is one of San Diego's nicest upscale residential neighborhoods located west of Balboa Park and east of Little Italy.

Bankers Hill is best known for some of the grandest homes in San Diego and the incredible hillside view that looks over downtown San Diego and the Pacific Ocean. Banker's Hill has some of the best examples of high end residential architecture that dates back to the late 1800's. Examples of Victorian, Craftsman, Revival, and Emerging Modern homes can be seen throughout the Bankers Hill area. Many of the original mansions that were built here have been restored to their original beauty and some have been converted into professional buildings used by lawyers, doctors, dentists, and small companies.

With views of the Pacific Ocean and Balboa Park, Bankers Hill is home to young professionals who want to live in an urban pedestrian setting. As many homes are actually positioned up on a 'hill' overlooking Downtown, San Diego Bay, Coronado, and the airport, it is common to see people spending their time watching the airplanes landing and the sun setting across the water.
