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 San Diego

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!

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!

Fantastic Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 11 stayed in this beautiful and spacious home for 2 weeks in February. We were 6 adults and 5 children ranging in age from 12 years to 10 months. The home was comfy, tastefully decorated. We had everything we needed to make our stay a good one. The view from the dining area was breathtaking especially at night. The kids enjoyed hanging out around the pool, although the pool was a bit cool at that time of the year but they still jumped in! The setting around the pool was like being in paradise and it was great to just soak in the sun. We were able to get to all the main attractions (Zoo, Safari, Legoland and Sea World) in a short distance, just loved San Diego. Kathy was more than accommodating and dealt with our questions prior to our arrival in a very timely manner. We so appreciated our home away from home and loved to come back to it after visiting San Diego's attractions. Thanks Kathy!

Chilly Weather but wonderfully warm home.

  • 5 of 5
Million dollar view for early morning coffee, warm and inviting fireplace for cool evenings.
Excellent location with ease of freeway access and great time of year to not deal with coastal fog.
Very comfy home as I rent multiple homes in many areas around the country, had family get togethers and fun conversations and libations around the fireplace nightly.
Pool was cold but we did use it to test new dive equipment and perform some photography as background was amazing, feeling like sitting in a rainforest.
Enjoyed the layout of the home providing privacy if wanted, excellent bedding and all necessary supplies. Excellent home for entertaining many people, felt like a private resort.
Will definitely come again to meet with Kathy, our hostess with the mostess!
thanks so much!

Awesome Property!

  • 5 of 5
Our recent stay in this beautiful house could not have been better. The house has all the amenities you could ask for with a very comfortable feel. The pool area is secluded and lush. The views off of the back deck are expansive and the lower deck is private and shady. Kathryn was terrific to deal with and everything promised was delivered. I can't wait to go back.
