MODERN HOME W/ SPECTACULAR VIEWS - GREAT FOR FAMILIES!

Mission Hills House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4 - 6

The summer calendar is now open! We are taking reservations for late May and June - August. Please note that we are already booked for ComicCon week.

Our home is located in the upscale Mission Hills neighborhood, just above Old Town, and features breathtaking views of San Diego Bay, Coronado, Downtown San Diego, Point Loma, the San Diego airport and the Pacific Ocean. Centered within minutes of the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Balboa Park, Mission Bay and the airport, this home features easy access to all the great sites of San Diego.

The home features an open floor plan with lots of natural light, a recently remodeled gourmet kitchen and an enclosed garden/patio. The home has three bedrooms and two baths. The master has a king-size Tempur-Pedic bed, the second bedroom has a twin bed in addition to a pull-out sofa bed, and the third bedroom has a queen-size bed and blackout shades. The home features expansive views of the city and bay on one side and a private garden on the other, perfect for outdoor dining and relaxing.

Mission Hills is one of the oldest neighborhoods in San Diego which means you'll see great old Craftsman-style architecture as well as post-war modern design. The neighborhood has a good community feel, but with a cool urban vibe. The area is very safe and families take great care of their homes here. We are within walking distance of several good coffee shops and restaurants and short drives to even more good dining options. Upon entering the home you can expect some freshly baked cookies waiting for you. We have also written a comprehensive guidebook which will give you many great dining ideas as well as site-seeing suggestions beyond the obvious.

My husband and our children lived in this house for 18 happy years so it is more than just a rental property to us and as such we maintain it with great care. If you stay you will find it well-furnished and extremely clean. For families traveling with children, we know how stressful that can be so toys, books, bedding, highchair, stroller, pack 'n' play, and baby bathtub are all available free upon request. And if you need anything else, we're still in the neighborhood, just a few blocks up the hill and available to help you or answer any questions.

San Diego is a wonderful city and Mission Hills is a special neighborhood. Like you, we love to travel and regularly use VRBO and HomeAway to secure our accommodations, so we are sensitive to making your stay the very best possible.

We are both native San Diegans who have traveled the world but still call San Diego home. Dave works at a local life science company while Laurie is busy raising our two daughters. We spent the better part of 18 years restoring and improving this house and now enjoy sharing it with others.

Laurie Renas purchased this house in 1994

After growing up in other areas of San Diego, we chose Mission Hills as offering the best combination of charm and central location to be found in the area.

The house is a post-war modern with an open, airy feel that's perfect for the San Diego climate. But what really sets the house apart are the stunning City / Bay / Ocean views which are virtually unparalleled in San Diego.

DREAM HOME

  • 5 of 5
This house at Mission Hills is really great. Nice and quiet residential neighborhood, close to Old Town (15min walk). We were attending a conference at the Convention Centre and it was really convenient to get to Convention Centre. Just a 15minute walk to Washington Street station and then the Green Line to downtown. Great kitchen, great beds, and amazing views of downtown San Diego, the airport and the bay. You can hear the airplanes and the train during the day till about 10pm. We noticed it the first couple of times, but it didn't bother us at all. Very friendly homeowner who would do everything to make your stay as nice as possible!

GREAT FOR FAMILIES!

  • 4 of 5
One of the best rentals we've had in San Diego. The listing was very accurate. The house was very clean, well taken care of. The view of the planes taking off during the day and the city lights by night was awesome. The owner was very helpful and accommodating. She checked in on us several times during our stay and provided freshly made pumpkin bread upon our arrival. We traveled with an almost 3 year old and a 7 month old infant, and they both enjoyed the house very much. Our toddler loved the books and legos. The owner was gracious enough to lend us a high chair, a baby bath tub, a pack and play and a stroller. We would have cooked more in the really nicely remodeled kitchen, but there was not even basic cooking spices or oil available. This came as a surprise because the house, otherwise, is very well stock. Overall, I would rent this house again, but I'd appreciate some basics for cooking (salt, pepper, sugar, cooking oil, seasonings).

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. It sounds like you really enjoyed your stay but I 'm sorry you didn't feel it was worthy of a 5-star rating (you are the first and only guests to not give us a perfect score and to be honest it upsets me to think we didn't provide a perfect experience for you). But, it sounds like everything was great with the exception of the lack of condiments in the kitchen so let me elaborate on that for future guests. It's true, I do not provide condiments such as oil, sugar, spices, etc. The kitchen is ideally stocked with really nice plates, silverware, glassware, pots, pans, baking dishes, cooking utensils, tupperware and even dishes appropriate for small children. However, in regards to food items, I very intentionally do not stock anything consumable, not because I don't want to offer a wonderful kitchen experience, but simply because oil goes bad, sugar attract ants, and spices go stale. My family and I have rented many homes through VRBO in the U.S. and abroad, and at the few homes that had such things in their kitchen I still chose to purchase my own supplies. Our home and our kitchen in particular is a really great place to settle in and cook a good meal. Most guests stock up on their favorite foods when they arrive and cook as they choose, using their own favorite brands of oils and spices. This ensures that items are fresh and clean and exactly what the guests wish to use. I should also add that when I know my guests are arriving late into the evening, I have always offered to do their grocery shopping that afternoon to help make their visit its very best. I hope that helps to answer why in my efforts to provide a really exceptional vacation stay, there are reasons why some items are not provided.

BEAUTIFULLY MAINTAINED, VERY CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE WITH A GREAT VIEW AND LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house a few days because my father was having eye surgery. It was very clean, comfortable and it has all you need. This made our stay very pleasant. The kitchen is beautiful, well equiped and a great view. This home is great for almost any occasion. Most important , the owner is a very nice person and gives you a very good description of the area.

AN EXCELLENT STAY IN AN EXCEPTIONAL HOME

  • 5 of 5
I recently returned from a great stay in one of my favorite US cities, San Diego. This house was just perfect: clean and well appointed, and with an incredible view! I can only echo the comments made by the other reviewers.

Laurie couldn't have been more accommodating. From the initial reservation to coordinating our arrival and throughout our stay she was available by email or text. And she had home baked pumpkin bread waiting for us on arrival.

I look forward to my next stay.

Our family of four loved staying in this home. The view is amazing. If you listen carefully, you can hear the bugle at the Marine Depot.The location is great. One afternoon, my girls happily played Legos in the courtyard. Laurie's guide book is awesome. We've travelled to San Diego many times, but her book provided new restaurant spots and cheap sight seeing activities. Stay here, but not when we want to come!
