ENCHANTING COURTYARD, CLASSIC MISSION HILLS, NEAR BALBOA PARK & TOP ATTRACTIONS

Mission Hills House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7 in peacefull, residential neighborhood

Spacious & Comfortable

The moment you enter the front gate, you’ll feel right at home in your peaceful and private oasis. Walk through the door of this gorgeous Spanish Revival home and you’ll be greeted with a warm and welcoming space combining classic comforts with modern amenities. The living room is an ideal place to relax and unwind and enjoy family time together. For those rare, chilly winter nights, there is a fireplace to complete the cozy setting. A well-appointed and fully stocked kitchen makes it a breeze to prepare a light snack at the breakfast bar, or to serve a full course holiday meal in the formal dining room set with handcrafted Luna Garcia pottery dinnerware. The master suite boasts an over-sized walk-in closet, a jetted tub , separate shower, and a California king-size bed (72' W x 84' L). The home is a great choice for families -- the guest bedroom is furnished with a queen-size bed (60' W x 80' L) and adjoins the second bathroom.

Plus, we have installed a gorgeous Murphy bed with a queen Serta 'Perfect Night' plush mattress in the living room to accommodate two additional guests. Combined, Casa Paloma can comfortably sleep up to 6 adults, with options for a 7th guest:

• Graco Pack & Play for newborn, infant or toddler (plus we also have a high chair and baby bath)

• Hide-A-Mat Foam Mattress (36' x 77') for single youth, teen or young adult

The house also includes an inside laundry room and is stocked with all of the kitchen, bed & bath supplies you would expect in your own home.

The jewel of Casa Paloma is the lush courtyard edged with palms and tropical plants that invites you to sit and savor your morning coffee, pause for a glimpse the hummingbirds, or simply enjoy San Diego’s great weather. In the evenings, unwind with a glass of wine outside on the comfortable couch with the lanterns aglow casting a romantic light off the soothing fountain.

Location, Location, Location

One of the best features of Casa Paloma is its central location, close and convenient to everything San Diego has to offer. Casa Paloma is tucked into an historic of Mission Hills neighborhood – away from all the crowds and congestion. Mission Hills is quiet and serene, and you can easily walk to a variety of local restaurants. Plus, Hillcrest, known for its shops, eclectic restaurants, and busting nightlife, is just a mile away. Other attractions are all within a short drive:

• Balboa Park: home to 15 major museums, performing arts, gardens and the San Diego Zoo

• Sea World

• Old Town for shopping, dining, the Presidio and Mission

• Coronado Island

• Downtown’s Embarcadero, Gaslamp Quarter, East Village & Little Italy Districts

Guestbook comments from the manager
My wife and I booked Casa Paloma as a joint birthday present to each other and we could not have been more happy with the choice. The location is perfect for the zoo, Sea World, Mission Bay, French Quarter, beaches, marinas, etc. The home itself is so warm and inviting it is just like being home, only with some great amenities, The owners, Paula and Keith, are very attentive and accommodating and wanted to make sure we had a great time. Also the website is one of the best I have experienced in providing guests every tool needed to make sure your visit is everything you could want. My family and I will definitely stay here again every opportunity we have when in San Diego and I cannot recommend this more to anyone visiting the San Diego area. You will not be disappointed.

INVITING

  • 5 of 5
Instantaneously felt inviting & welcomed. Loved the "welcome" gifts! The attention to detail @ Casa Paloma made the house feel "homey". The courtyard was relaxing with so much seating provided, along with the sound of the water fountain & ambience of lanterns. Our only regret is a lack of duration. Hope to have future stays @ Casa Paloma. Its location was close to our activities.

CASA PALOMA HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful home. Such attention to detail. All the amenities of a 5 star hotel plus everything you would need in a home. Centrally located, only 10-15 mins to major attractions, including the beach. Restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance. Paula goes out of her way to make sure your stay is memorable. Loved the Welcome packet of wines, make your own guacamole (ingredients supplied) and chocolates. Would definitely return. Thank you Paula and Keith.

Owner's Response: L & T -- thank you so much for the kind words! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Casa Paloma and had the chance to build your own pizzas at nearby Project Pie (we love that place). Since you are just a short drive away and visit San Diego often, please remember we offer a VIP Discount for returning guests starting at 10%, (and increasing to 50% for last minute stays). We hope to see you and the girls again soon. Cheers -- Keith & Paula

EXCELLENT - LOCATION, EQUIPMENT, HOSTS

  • 5 of 5
Casa Paloma has a lot going for it.

For a start, it is very well located in the Mission Hills district which manages to be peaceful while providing pretty much every amenity (shops, restaurants, access to drink) that parents travelling with children could need. Access to the multiple attractions of San Diego is easy from the property - the zoo, Midway museum and downtown are a short drive away and parking was gratifyingly easy.

The property itself is lovely. Well presented, nicely decorated, spotlessly clean and thoughtfully equipped. It had more towels provided than I have ever seen in a holiday rental anywhere, though my daughters conspired to use them all.

We were mostly self catering and found the kitchen to be very well equipped indeed. Having only limited space for baggage, the presence of a washer and drier was much appreciated, as was the thoughtful provision of laundry detergent (amongst the many things that the hosts saw fit to provide).

Which brings me on to Casa Paloma's greatest asset: its hosts. I should perhaps mention at this point that we ourselves make our living from holiday rentals and have done so for over a decade. Casa Paloma's owners, however, showed us a thing or two. Incredibly helpful, well prepared and with a terrific eye for detail.

I can find nothing to criticise except for Casa Paloma's complete lack of portability. Try as we might we could not get the place into the back of the car for the rest of our holiday.

Would I recommend Casa Paloma? Without any hesitation. Yes. Absolutely.

Owner's Response: Jon,

Thank you for very complimentary review of Casa Paloma. We strive to exceed guest expectations and are glad to hear we achieved this during your stay. I trust you enjoyed the remainder of your holiday through Arizona and hope the package we sent arrived while you were still at the Grand Canyon.

We will add "Vendée Vacances" to our bucket list and hope to see you the next time we take an extended visit to Europe.

Best to you & your family,
Keith & Paula

PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
I highly recommend Casa Paloma.
It’s a beautiful home with more amenities than any vacation rental I have ever rented, which are numerous.
You won’t have to purchase any basic items since the house is well stocked with shampoo, napkins, paper towels and even cooking spices! We prepared a Thanksgiving dinner for 8 and the Casa even had a roasting pan for our turkey!
This lovely home is centrally located to all that San Diego has to offer, including Balboa Park, Zoo, Little Italy, Seaport Village and the Gaslamp Quarter. Grocery shopping, restaurants and the airport complete its premium location! This is the place to stay if you want to be in the heart of the city within a charming & classic San Diego neighborhood.
The owners, Paula and Keith were welcoming not only to us but to our guests as well. There is a lovely garden patio with comfortable seating, a fountain, table for six, and propane heater for a chilly evening. I even decided to miss some of the group’s sightseeing adventures so that I could enjoy more time relaxing “at home”.
Don’t hesitate renting this jewel!

Owner's Response: Lisa, thanks for the very complimentary review! Per your suggestion, Keith installed a new gas fireplace insert so our guests can easily enjoy a cozy and warm winter ambiance the few weeks a year when the temp dips as low as it did this past Thanksgiving.

We hope to see you and your friends again soon.
Cheers - Paula

WORDS CANNOT DESCRIBE THE COMFORT AND BEAUTY......

  • 5 of 5
How can you put into words the beauty and comfort of a place that is so relaxing, welcoming and conveniently located to any and all sights you would like to see while in San Diego! My family and I found Casa Paloma to be one of the best places we have stayed while on vacation. The owners, Paula and Keith are wonderful hosts that give you total privacy; if that is what you want. But if you would like to spend a little time with them they will be there to answer questions and hang out in the incredibly beautiful spa like courtyard for some conversation.

Casa Paoloma has everything you will need to cook and entertain your family and/or guests. The kitchen is equipped with everything you would need to prepare a meal or just some snacks to enjoy in the courtyard. The house is spacious and homey. We cannot wait to return there!!!

Paula and Keith we cannot thank you enough for your time and hospitality. We are looking forward to seeing you in 2014 :)

Owner's Response: We really enjoyed having you as “neighbors” last week and are so glad you chose to stay at Casa Paloma during your visit to San Diego. Quite often, we go a full week without crossing paths with our guests, so it was a nice treat to share food, drinks & great conversations in the courtyard with your family. Thank you for the glowing review and for the mementos from Boston (I love the book about Fenway Park, a great addition to my baseball collection). See you all next year!

IF YOU'RE PLANNING ON GOING TO SAN DIEGO...

If you're planning on going to San Diego...
  • 5 of 5
Case Paloma is the place to stay. It's so much more than just another vacation rental. Don't miss the chance to stay at this wonderful home. It is nestled in a quiet, beautiful neighborhood and is still close to all the attractions San Diego has to offer, including the airport and it stills remains a peaceful oasis. It is also within walking distance to Hillcrest and Mission Hills which are full of restaurants and shops. Well worth the trek. The farmer's Market on Sunday morning was another wonderful little surprise.

We were attracted to this rental by the photos on their web site but as nice as they are, you don't realize what a good feeling you get until you actually stay there. The courtyard gave us the feeling of being at a spa. We took many of our meals out there enjoying the foutain and lush, tropical foliage. It was so relaxing that we didn't want to leave.

The house is so well stocked that we couldn't come up with anything that was missing, including beach towels. And the kitchen was equipped with everything from preparing a meal or entertaining.

The owners, Keith and Paul couldn't be more helpful. They not only provided maps and suggestions but gave us ideas on things to do and places to visit that only locals know. Thank you!

We were in southern California to see the Pagaent of the Masters in Laguna Beach and decided to stay in San Diego to explore more of the area. We enjoyed eating at Ortega's and the Fish Market along the harbor and taking in Mission Hills and the Hillcrest areas.

Paula and Keith, we'll see you again...soon.

Owner's Response: Chris -- We truly enjoyed meeting you and your friends last month and do hope you all make it back to San Diego soon. I’ve found a handful of artist studios for you to explore the next time you are in town, and don’t forget we offer repeat guests a discount! I also want to thank you for leaving the helpful comments and restaurant suggestions in our guest book for others who stay, and especially for the beautiful bouquet of sunflowers you left for me!
Best, Paula
