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 no more than 10 adults at one time and no more than 8 children at one time. If you have more than 14 adults and children combined, we may allow it but we do have an extra guest fee. 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.

About Robert Bayer

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 youngest daughter.

Robert Bayer purchased this house in 2000

Why Robert Bayer chose Mission Hills

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Family Christmas Gift!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time vacationing in San Diego! Due to the great home we rented from Rob and Virginia! The beautiful, spacious home met our expectations and then some! We had children with us ages 1 1/2 to 9 years old and adults from 27 to 84 years and this home was a perfect fit for us all. The bedrooms were spacious and clean, and there was plenty of floor space for the kids to play.

We all enjoyed the outdoor space as well! Our kids really enjoyed all the toys, balls, wagons, scooters, etc....and the playground ( swings, sandbox). We come from the farm in Nebraska, and having a spacious backyard was a huge plus for us!

I would highly recommend this home to any family looking for a wonderful, inviting home to relax in after a day of play and sight seeing.

We cooked breakfast in this home every morning, ample space to seat all of us, plenty of cookware and dinnerware to accommodate our group. We had our evening meals delivered from area eateries, very good and fast delivery.

Thank you Robert and Virginia, we had a wonderful time!

Family Wedding

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our multi-generational family of 14 adults to attend a wedding in the area. No crowding here! All rooms, including bedrooms, are generous in size and comfortable. We were very pleased with the amount of indoor and outdoor space. The bedrooms on the first floor worked wonderfully for the seniors in our group. The neighborhood is quiet, well-kept, safe and walkable. We all felt very much at home and would not hesitate to recommend this house or stay here again.

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our annual girls weekend. It was fantastic since their were so many bedrooms and bathrooms. The location was perfect! We were a short uber ride to Old Town and the Gaslamp District. We also enjoyed some of the places that were in walking distance of the house. The house itself had everything we needed and was a great place to hang out in between all of our outings. Thanks for opening your home to us!

Thanksgiving success!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many places through VRBO and this one was the best. The owners were very nice, responsive and accommodating. The home was clean, beautiful and perfect for 5 families with kids. There was plenty of space for the kids to play indoor and outdoors, and for the adults to relax and hang out. The kitchen was perfect for cooking Thanksgiving dinner and we grilled our turkey outside. It was also a great location, and we took walks, went to the beach 10 minutes away, and LEGOLAND. Loved this house!

AS EXPECTED....

  • 5 of 5

This is a big home in a great location. We are a group of traveling business men who used the home while we had an extended work stay in San Diego. This home is exactly what we look for in a longer term rental. It has the qualities of home- plenty of space for several people + adequate parking for multiple cars + easy to get to restaurants/grocery stores + large beds + large meeting area/dining & offers the perfect location for quick access to highway travel It was CLEAN, available and READY for our arrival. The home was staged exactly as seen in the photos and exactly as depicted in the listing. The owners are EASY to communicate with and ACCESSIBLE, if needed. Payment didn't require any funny stuff and our deposits were returned as promised by the terms of our contract. We rent homes several times a month and don't hand out 5 stars frequently. This is a 5 star. We would DEFINITELY come back to this home and give a strong recommendation for others to rent here too!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This home, and I call it a home because it felt like home, met all our expectations. We are a group of 11 women Who meet for a reunion one see year.

This home has a kitchen that is well-equipped, a dining room that seats, many, living room that is inviting, spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds,and an ample supply of linens with a washer and dryer. The backyard is huge and has two very comfortable seating areas. The backyard is equipped with hey playset, bicycles, a barbecue grill, and all the equipment you need to go to the beach.

The house was very clean and the owner is very accommodating. If you have any problems or questions you can reach him at any time. I highly recommend his house to a large group or family. You will not be disappointed.
