Guestbook comments from the manager
San Diego is wonderful: the museums at Balboa Park, it hailed and rained on us at Safari Park, we joined the houseful at Guadeloupe and enjoyed the food outside under a heater, Old Town saw us many times for eating and shopping, the historic area kept us walking back into history, the youngers went sea lion "watching" (loved that) while we (who did a whale watch tour off Maine a few years ago) toured the Museum of Art, Legoland was thrilling for Grandson Sam, Petco Park was exciting to tour especially the locker room. Having come from three parts of the country, mostly we were together all week, rare these days.



We found the house to be wonderful!! Oddly with all the beauty in the kitchen we never cooked a single meal, microwaved leftovers, coffee pot kept us going in between restaurant stops, providing leftovers galore. We couldn't get enough of marveling at all the property provides, the roses, the lemons, the entertainment centers, the beautiful baths. And to top that, the location was so convenient to everywhere we wanted to go. In minutes we found ourselves at our chosen location! Some even walked to Old Town and back, quite a return uphill walk. I'll never forget our first drive UP Bandini Street, like driving up a "yellow brick wall", said our daughter. It was an unexpected thrill both up and down for we living in the flat land of our part of NJ. We thank you again for providing such a gorgeous house to call "home" for a week.

Dave is a retired Navy pilot, who now flies for a commercial airline and is an accomplished chef. He believes hospitality comes first and has chosen to share his home with renters who will be able to enjoy not only the great view and wonderful amenities but the central proximity to everything San Diego has to offer. Having lived and travelled all across the world, Dave knows that San Diego is the perfect vacation destination that has a little bit of everything for everyone. Dave has a soft spot in his heart for the military, the travel industry, and the elderly; just ask about discounts in those categories.

Dave or Donna purchased this house in 1995

This property is central to everything that makes San Diego such a popular tourist destination. MCRD, Old Town, the airport,local beaches, Downtown San Diego, Sea World and Belmont Park are all just minutes away from home. With its stunning views and many luxuries it is the perfect home away from home. Being so close to everything means less time getting there and more time being there so you have more time to spend relaxing, having fun and enjoying your vacation. There is a one bedroom apartment attached to the home and when Dave isn't flying he can be found on property and is always up for good conversation and can help you with whatever you need!

THIS WILL MAKE YOU THINK TWICE ABOUT GOING HOME.

  • 4 of 5
Location, location, location. But that's not all - this place has an incredible interior filled with tile, granite, leather and glass that makes you feel like you're living in a palace. The back patio looks out at the airport and the bay and is fantastic for grilling and hanging out. The master bedroom is something to be coveted, as is the master bathroom, but there was plenty of room, privacy, and comfort available to everyone in our 10 person party.

The place has just about everything you could need, and Dave & Donna are very friendly and available. Dave stayed in the 1-bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor for a few of the nights we were there, but you couldn't ever tell he was there. There's another apartment space carved out on the first floor, but she wasn't there when we stayed.

Overall, the property was very clean and well maintained - Dave has a bit of a green thumb and has fruiting plants covering the property. He and Donna both are great people and work hard to make sure that your stay is exactly what you want it to be.

The only unfortunate circumstance is that all of the hard surfaces in the house tend to magnify sound and so you can't necessarily party at night indoors without risking complaint from the neighbors. One time, we did turn up the sound system to the 0 setting, close the doors, and ask the neighbors if they could hear it in the middle of the day. They said they could not, but if you have a window or a door open then the sound will reverberate.

I would recommend this property to anybody who's looking to be close to the city and all the activities/attractions of San Diego, who wants a classy and spacious place to stay, and doesn't mind a little interaction with the landlords (who are totally cool). We had a fantastic time, and the amenities made "staying in" just as awesome as going out.

SPACIOUS, COMFORTABLE AND CONVENIENT

  • 5 of 5
Dave and Donna, the owners/managers, are welcoming and very helpful. The house is beautifully appointed and was comfortable and easy to enjoy for our extended family group of 12. We were surprised at how close it is to many of San Diego's best attractions. Walking distance to Old Town and 20 minutes to Sea World, Balboa Park, the Zoo, Little Italy, Coronado, Shelter Island and Ocean Beach and only 30 minutes to La Jolla. There's also good shopping and restaurants in Mission Hills and Hillcrest further up the hill.

COMFORTABLE, FRIENDLY AND CONVENIENT

  • 5 of 5
Chose Bella Casa as an alternative to a week in a conference hotel while traveling with family, including an infant and grandparents. Dave and staff were accommodating, friendly and always accessible. They made sure we had everything we needed upon arrival to make their home ours for the week. Donna even found a highchair and crib.

The property is as well-kept and roomy as it appears in the listing. We entertained extended family with ease using the catering kitchen, grill and multiple seating areas.

Bella Casa is conveniently located off of the 5, making car access to downtown, Sea World and Balboa Park a breeze. It is also close to charming Old Town San Diego, several restaurants and grocery stores. While being close to the highway and airport, the faint background noise did not wake the sleeping baby - or its sleeping parents - even with the windows open.

I would recommend this property to colleagues, friends and relatives.

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the villa and the studio with 11 people, all visiting the Society for Neuroscience conference. The house is really great, the beds are comfortable (I could sleep like a baby) and all amenities are available. For example a huge gas grill/ barbecue, which we happily used for some of our best dinners. The owners are very helpful with various requests, such as putting up additional beds in a certain room.
It is recommended to pay close attention to Dave's into tour, otherwise you'll have difficulties turning some of the many lights on or off ,-)

REALLY COMFORTABLE AND GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
I really enjoyed mu stay at the Bella casa. Dave Denise and Donna are really great people. Dave took us on a tour of the uss midway and came to a chargers game with us and showed us Canadians how to tailgate! Donna gave me a zoo pass and gave me some great tips on the city. The house itself was very comfortable where we enjoyed lounging on one of the two patios overlooking city, no shortage of televisions I would watch sports center from the shower. Really neat location and pretty close to everything we wanted to see in San Diego .

WE DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE!!

We didn't want to leave!!
  • 5 of 5
Donna and Dave were so accommodating when we were booking the house, little did we know it would only get better. The house is even more amazing in person and when we arrived, Donna showed us all around, helped plan our tourist stops, helped us with some amazing discounts, and all of this out of the goodness of her heart. She then took some amazing family photos for us, while Dave acted as her "assistant". After pictures, he drove all the way to the USS Midway to arrange for our free tour. I can assure you we will be back, and if my wife has anything to say about it, it might be to stay!! :) If you choose this house you will not regret your decision.
