Mission Hills House Rental Photos and Description

House, 8 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

Have your family get together or work business retreat at our house. Our big house is located on top of a hill in the Mission Hills neighborhood of San Diego. We are a few blocks away from the Old Town State Park and Presidio State Park. We are less than 10 minutes by car to the downtown San Diego Gaslamp area, the USS Midway, Petco Park where the San Diego Padres baseball team plays, Balboa Park, Sea World, Qualcomm Stadium where the Chargers play, Mission Beach, Ocean Beach and Coronado Beach. We are about 15 minutes from Tijuana, Mexico. The San Diego trolley in Old Town State Park is within walking distance of our home.

Our house is over 3,600 square feet with a large backyard with a patio, lawn and children's playgound area with swings and sandbox.

We love to rent to families visiting the San Diego area who want to take advantage of our house's location to many of the major tourist attractions in San Diego with the convenience of getting together with their family at a house and not at a hotel. Our house and backyard are one of the biggest in the neighborhood however we do not allow large events such as weddings or receptions at the house. It is not fair to our nice neighbors.

We like to limit the maximum occupancy of our house to 12 adults and 6 children but children under 6 years old would not count toward the maximum occupancy of 16. Please call us if you would like to discuss our max occupancy limit.

The lay out of the house is as follows:

- Our living room area has twelve foot high arched ceilings with a fireplace, flat screen TV above it, leather sofa sectional.

- The dining room has a table that is big enough to seat 14.

- The kitchen has all major appliances including a dishwasher, Jenn Air wall oven, Jenn Air wall microwave, Jenn Air stove top with over 60 sq feet of corian countertop. Coffeemaker, toaster oven, toaster and blender provided.

- The master bedroom downstairs has a king size bed with its own bathroom, with a shower stall and small bath tub. There is a TV in this room.

- The second bedroom downstairs has a king size bed.

- The downstairs bedroom off of the living room has a bunk bed with a full mattress on the bottom and a twin mattress on the top. This room also has a desk area with two ethernet connections for your computer. There is wireless throughout the house also.

- These 2 bedrooms share a hallway bathroom that has a shower and a one person Jacuzzi tub. The downstairs has hardwood floors throughout.

- You will take our carpeted stairs up to the second floor where we have 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The second floor of the house is fully carpeted. There is a washer and dryer in the upstairs hallway.

- The master bedroom upstairs has a king size bed with its own bathroom, shower stall and 2 person Jacuzzi Spa Tub. It also has its own balcony and a 42 inch flat screen TV.

- The second bedroom upstairs has a queen bed and a TV. This bedroom shares a full bathroom with the 3rd bedroom that has a full size bed and a sliding glass door that leads to a balcony with slight views of the ocean.

- The 4th bedroom has a queen bed and you step down 4 steps to the 5th bedroom which has a king bed with a high vaulted ceiling. There is a 27 inch TV in this room. These two rooms share a full bathroom.

Besides the playground and swing set in our backyard for the kids we have bikes, scooters and soccer balls, footballs and baseballs for them to play with. The backyard is fully fenced. We also have beach chairs, umbrellas and coolers at the house that you can use if you are planning to go to the beach which is a few miles away.

Keywords: 8 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms family house located in a quiet San Diego neighborhood near the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, beaches, USS Midway, Petco Park, Qualcomm Stadium and Gaslamp District in downtown San Diego. Close to La Jolla and Coronado. Legoland is 30 minutes up the road.

We are a family of 6 that lived in this house for close to 10 years. We loved the house and the neighborhood, however, we had to move to another house in the San Diego area to take advantage of that area's special needs school for our daughter.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

The property is situated in one of the oldest neighborhoods in San Diego. We originally moved to this house because we enjoyed the convenience of the neighborhood being close to the downtown area. Balboa Park and the beaches. We loved the feel of the neighborhood and the unique Spanish, Craftsman and Contempory architecture.

We have kept the original hardware floors and kept the high arched living room ceiling. Being on top of a hill we continually feel the warm ocean beeezes so we do not need to use our central air conditioning very often. Our backyard area is bigger than most in this neighborhood so we landscaped it so there would be plenty of room for our kids to play and enjoy.

Fantastic rental and location

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 6, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
We've stayed at several VRBO properties in the west and Hawaii and this one was one of the best ones yet. Quiet neighborhood and fantastic house, especially for groups. My family with two small kids, my parents, and a few aunts and uncles all stayed in this beautifully appointed home for a week instead of staying at a hotel for a wedding. We all had a wonderful time!

The house is well suited for large groups and the layout is wonderful for relaxing. Great kitchen too!

Close proximity to all the sights and very close to downtown. The owner was great to work with- very professional and followed up to ensure our stay was great. Would highly recommend- if you can get it! Thanks for a great stay.

Affordable and restful retreat

Our division was attending a conference in downtown San Diego and couldn't afford to give everyone a private room in the swanky hotel. Staying at the Mission Hills house was a great alternative, giving everyone sufficient privacy, allowing time for people to sit and talk comfortably, letting us choose what we wanted for breakfast, and saving us literally thousands of dollars.

We didn't get to spend as much time as we wanted exploring the neighborhood, or even at the house, but it was a comfortable family neighborhood and a restful retreat after a long day of meeting and greeting.

The one complaint we got from our group was that the WiFi signal wasn't strong throughout the house. It also would require a car (or two) for getting back and forth to the conference, but the value of having this space for our group made that worth it.

Fantastic Home in a Historic Neighborhood

My husband and I decided to house both our families in one home for our wedding weekend. This home had MORE than enough space for the 14 adults and 3 children that stayed there. The beds were amazingly comfortable and the amenities outstanding (perfect for groups with children!). We were able to enjoy homemade meals and spend time playing in the backyard and barbecuing in the San Diego sunshine! Our families were close to the wedding and able to do sight seeing too without having to drive very far at all. It couldn't have been a more perfect place for us!

Great house to rent for family travelling to San Diego for out son's wedding

Great house to rent for family travelling to San Diego for out son's wedding

This house was very clean upon arrival. There was plenty of room for 14 people who were attending our son's wedding. The kitchen was fully equipped and the owners were excellent communicators. All the beds were comfortable and the neighborhood was quiet. This was much better for a family gathering than having to have multiple hotel rooms. As promised, the owners returned our security deposit within a week of our departure. I would recommend this house for anyone with a large family who is vacationing in the San Diego area. Thanks again to the owners for all their help and we would definitely look into renting from you again.

Perfect Beautiful House for our Family Reunion/Birthday Party Celebration

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 11, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
My entire family, including parents, 3 brothers and their families enjoyed a wonderful time in this perfectly child-friendly home. We had 3 toddlers from ages 1-2 years old and they were all quite happy playing all day in the huge backyard. The house was more than enough space for all of our 6 families and spotlessly cleaned when we arrived. The location was perfect, close to all the theme parks/zoos, the airport. We could not have asked for a more perfect location. Rob and Virginia were very easy to contact and super helpful in our planning. We had absolutely no problems. We would recommend this place if you have a large family with children.
