About Jim and/or Lynne Manner

We currently live in the front house of the property and have been in our home since 1982. We found this lovely property on the way to a Charger game and couldn't resist the custom Spanish style of this 1920's era two on one. We started out renting and we were fortunate to have the opportunity to purchase the property. We were even more fortunate to be married in the back yard; all six kids and one happy St. Bernard. We both grew up elsewhere in California, but we met in San Diego and have lived in our home for 30+ years and can not imagine leaving. The back house (casita) was a rental when we bought and was kept as a rental for most of our time here. Recently, we remodeled and upgraded the cottage into the casita.

Jim and/or Lynne Manner purchased this studio in 1983

Why Jim and/or Lynne Manner chose University Heights

We bought here because our work was nearby and schools for our children were close. We are now retired and our children have left the roost. Our home is situated right in the middle of everything that is inviting in San Diego. Neighborhood restaurants and coffee houses are within four blocks. We are very close to high-end shopping malls, the Gaslamp District downtown, Balboa Park, the Zoo, beaches, ball parks, and just 1+ hour from the beautiful and very quaint historic mountain town of Julian.

What makes this studio unique

The casita is located in a quiet neighborhood that is walking friendly and very close to freeway access in all directions as well as public transportation.

Popular Points of Interest (POI) and their distances from the Casita can be viewed on our map.

GIRLS TRIP

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at the Casita while we were visiting my other daughter in San Diego. If you are thinking of renting the Casita do it now!!!!. This place is ADORABLE, the property looks just like the pictures.

We absolutely loved staying here. They have everything that you would possibly need while you are here

including a nice bottle of wine and homemade cookies(yummy). I love that fact that the Casita has air conditioning and heat and parking. Jim and Lynn I really love your decorating style and it was a pleasure to meet you. I love that I found your Casita and so close to my daughter's house. I really cannot say enough good things about your property and our experience in renting with you. Thank You so much for making our

stay so pleasant with your beautiful property. I will definitely be back.

Perfect spot for a babymoon!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Jim and Lynn's casita for one last vacation before we have a baby in 2 months. It was the perfect place to kick back and relax after a long day of walking around San Diego. The casita offered everything we needed for the perfect long weekend. We made breakfast every morning and ate on the patio which was very private and peaceful (something you won't get by going to a hotel!). Any time we had a question Jim and Lynn were able to answer it via text immediately. Every where we visited while in San Diego was no more than 20 minutes away from our casita which made it easy to see a lot in a short amount of time. I can't wait to come back!!

Owner's Response: We are happy you took advantage of the patio surroundings making for an enjoyable breakfast experience before a full day of exploring San Diego. Thank you for highlighting the closeness of the Casita to a lot of San Diego's things to do. We hope to see you back with baby in tow!

Perfect !!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed many times (about a week for each visit) at the Casita as it is, indeed, perfect in every respect. It is always immaculate and completely and tastefully furnished and provisioned.

It is also secure and central which meets all of our needs as we are constantly "out and about; be it for hiking in north county, shopping for grandchildren or dining out.

Our hosts, Jim and Lynne are always discretely available for either a friendly chat or advice about anything.

We highly recommend this property.

Beautiful Studio!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent 8 nights at La Casita. Jim and Lynne have done a wonderful job with this spacious and comfortable studio. Everything is top quality, and it is beautifully furnished in a colorful, yet tasteful,Southwestern theme.

The location is conveniently central for everything in San Diego, yet is in a quiet and pleasant residential neighborhood. A big bonus is that it is 5 minutes walk to lots of restaurants and cafés on Park.

Jim and Lynne are helpful and friendly, but not intrusive. Their elderly dog, Peanut, visited us frequently to check all was in order.

We'll definitely be back, if possible, next time we visit San Diego.

Owner's Response: Chris and Clare we thank you for traveling all the way from the UK to visit San Diego and complement the decor and location of the Casita. We are thankful the weather was about the best we get for the time you were here. Peanut reported you were comfortable and looks forward to another visit from you.

Excellent Stay at the Casita Del Sol

  • 5 of 5

I recently completed a 9500 mile trip around the country and had a chance to stay at the Casita Del Sol in San Diego. This Casita was the best place I stayed on the whole trip. It is a very nicely equipped studio apartment located in a quiet neighborhood. I do not think there is any amenity that is not available in this quaint rental. There are restaurants and shopping located just a short walk away. I drove over to Balboa Park for the day and did not have to drive on any major road.

I highly recommend Casita Del Sol to anyone who wants a quiet secluded getaway. It is a very nice alternative to staying at one of the hotels in the San Diego area.
