About Kathryn Smith

I have lived in this home and raised my kids here for the past 34 years. I know first hand what a great place this is to enjoy. I can't tell you how many family reunions, Christmas parties, Barbeques, etc. this house has witnessed. A family with 6 children lived here before I bought the home. I am an artist and have enjoyed making this a comfortable relaxing place to rest and enjoy between trips to the zoo, Sea World, Scripps , Balboa Park and it's museums, beaches, golf courses...oh my the list goes on and on. I paint murals for a living so I see the beauty in most things. I hope you enjoy the beautiful home I have created for your stay in our amazing city.

Kathryn Smith purchased this house in 1977

Why Kathryn Smith chose El Cajon

Sun, Sun and more sun. When the beach areas are gloomy and overcast we have beautiful, bright, blue skies almost year round. We are 10 to 15 minutes from almost everything in San Diego...from downtown,to the mountains, to the beaches, and even Mexico...there is something to do in every direction. This property is a vacation in itself. You could never leave and have a great time swimming in the large pool, have a Bar-b-que and drink frosty margaritas blended to perfection in the Palapa bar.

What makes this house unique

Start the day with a warm cup of coffee sitting on the deck at sunrise and end it each evening with a glass of wine overlooking beautiful twinkeling lights. We are so convenient ,10-15 minutes to:

three local beaches

mountains

Mexico

Downtown

5- 10 minutes to:

two major shopping Centers

Singing Hills and Steele Canyon Golf Courses

Lakes for fishing

horse back riding

hiking trails

mountain climbing

Parks

Playgrounds and much more!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a perfect home for a family reunion! We had lots of space for the 10 of us, everything we could need to make great meals, and a perfect set up at the pool for the kids and adults alike. Thanks!

Your own personal resort!

  • 5 of 5

This home fit the bill perfectly for our family reunion of 6 adults and 5 kids. Each day we felt like we were vacationing on a private resort! The home was incredibly clean and well-maintained. Kathy went above and beyond to make sure our needs were met. We have booked many VRBO rentals and this by far surpassed them all. Thank you Kathy for such a great time!

WOW FACTOR

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 (5 adults and 3 children) travelled from the far North of Canada to enjoy your beautiful home and climate for 8 days. The awesome view from the dining area was our topic of conversation time and time again and one morning, we were above the clouds on Mt. Helix. The beds were very comfy and bedrooms very spacious. Thank you for your thoughfulness in supplying all the paper products, dishwasher and laundry products. Our GPS took us on an adventure every day and everything was about 20 minutes to the Zoo, Seaworld, beaches and the Midway. Grocery and the Mall, were maybe 5-10 minutes. Couldn't have asked for a better vacation and yes, we would love to come back to San Diego.

Fab house, Fab views, Fab pool...Fab Time!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in those house for a week with my family of 8. We travelled from Ireland to meet up with family in California, and all stayed in the house together. Kathryn made the whole experience so easy and hassle free, such a lovely woman.

The pool area was just amazing. It was so spacious with plenty of seating and sun loungers. Pool was a little deep but those who were confident swimmers enjoyed jumping of the diving board.

The deck area just off the lounge was great for BBQ's and with such a beautiful view over the city, you could sit there for hours! We truly had a wonderful vacation, only problem was it wasn't long enough. Would go back to the house in the morning! :)

Loved this property!

  • 5 of 5

We had everything that we needed and more! The view was beyond amazing, and the pool area was a perfect place for our family to gather and just hang out. There was plenty of room for my two sons and their families, and my daughter, husband and I. There were plenty of food places, grocery stores and even Costco and Trader Joes nearby. It was an easy drive to all the attractions and beaches that San Diego has to offer. My family loves to work out together so running up to and working out at the Mt Helix amphitheater was awesome--more amazing views! While Kathy was on vacation when we were there, her daughter was a perfect hostess and responded quickly to any questions. I would highly recommend this property, and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Thank you, Kathy!

An absolutely great home. The views are awesome, especially at night. Very quiet. The yard and pool feel like a resort. We will return. Kathy was great. Kitchen was fully equipped.
