My partner and I had the honor of acquiring this huge, gorgeous property early in 2013 and we are working hard to breath new-life into the lost-and-forgotten hillside mansion, which once house one of San Diego's most well known political socialites. We have been rehabilitating, managing and maintaining successful vacation property on our own for 6 years. We have found so much pleasure and meaning in nurturing distressed properties back to health and beauty. Every guest we have hosted (whether it be for days or years), has always been so happy with their experience among the charming gardens and cozy grounds of our properties, warm people and quality management.

Andrea Rubalcaba on Behalf of George Carter purchased this estate in 2013

When you're here, you completely forget about the outside world. Whether it's mimosas and Yahtzee on a sunny morning or hot cocoas around a bon-fire on a cool evening, you will always find yourself enjoying this huge property. This is the kind of place where you can be inside or out..they're both equally beautiful, tranquil and comforting. Not to mention you're only a moments drive from all of San Diego's exciting offerings.

Book as much or as little space as you need. It is completely customizable! Gated hillside mansion with panoramic city and mountain views. The property is virtually invisible from the street and the neighbors. With 1.5 acres of fenced land, you'll be cozy, safe and sound here, nestled into the canyon. You will feel like you have taken a trip into the wilderness, only 10-minutes East of Downtown San Diego.

Beautiful property

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here with two young children. The place is beautiful and furnished very tastefully. The view is outstanding. I would not recommend for little ones as I was worried my toddler was going to break some of the lovely decor items, and it is not a functional two-bedroom for a young family. The second bedroom is a bit of a walk around the property to get to, so would be great for an older kid or two couples. There is no couch in the living area either, so you can't really relax there while children are asleep in the next room. There is, however, a nice patio table and chairs right outside so we could sit and admire the view on the nights the mosquitos weren't bad.The owners were very nice and accommodating. They have done a great job of fixing this place up. The location is also perfect--a beautiful atmosphere while being within 15 mins of most of the places we wanted to go.

Secluded relaxation.

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent a week in the property's lovely casita. The decor and design is so very warm and inviting that one feels immediately at home. Rivaling the accomodations are the impressive views and the sense of seclusion. This is a perfect place for an artist to re-charge their artistic batteries. It would also make the perfect destination for a romantic weekend get-away. I was concerned that it might be to far out of the city but found easy freeway access with a quick fifteen-twenty minute drive to the beach, downtown, Balboa, Hillcrest and other local attractions. This would also make a great location for an executive retreat for any corporate clients. We will definitely be going back very soon.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My mom hosted a baby shower on the North Lawn for my husband and me. She also rented out the casita for us for the weekend. The casita has a full kitchen, private BBQ area, super comfy bed, and the cutest Spanish-style bathroom. Everything was absolutely amazing. The views from the property are gorgeous. Being 8 months pregnant, it was nice to be able to lounge out in the sun next to the citrus groves, and have a relaxing weekend. It was also nice to be able to bring our dog and let her run around instead of being cooped up in a hotel room.
My mom brought in caterers, party rentals, decorations, etc. and the owners were so easy going about everything and just let us do our thing. The party was absolutely beautiful. We only had 30 people, but the Lawn could have easily accommodated 100+ people for a wedding or larger event.
I would recommend staying here for anything from special events to business trips. It is so peaceful, relaxing, and comfortable...so much nicer than staying at a hotel. And, even though you feel completely secluded at the property, you are only a couple minutes to easy freeway access to go anywhere in San Diego.

The Ultimate Secluded Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We typically patronize hotels, prioritizing proximity to attractions and tourist sights. But our goal for this vacation was rest and relaxation. The Casita Suite delivered this in spades. Tucked into the verdant hillside and offering gorgeous views of the valley each morning (and twinkling lights at night), the property felt peaceful and secluded. The interior is curated with a designer's eye in warm hues of the American southwest, freshened with a sense of California cool. The bedroom is furnished with luxurious linens. The bathroom and kitchen supplied with new, top of the line appliances and fixtures. This is the place to kick back and write the great American novel. And yet, the property is closely located to freeways. Within 20-30 minutes, you can be at the beach, explore Balboa Park, or go shopping in Hillcrest. I now know that relaxation does not have to mean isolation! It's the best of both worlds. No screaming baby or loud teenagers in adjacent rooms. Just tranquil sights and quiet, without sacrificing too much on proximity. I'm already planning my next stay!

BEYOND REASONABLE EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
I cannot even wait until the end of our trip to write a review for this place. I am blown away by the grounds, the view, the house and guest qtrs, the cleanliness, the service... I could go on and on. I have not ever rented a place that is so well kept and beautiful inside... I would love to actually just live here :) but I doubt they would go for that (besides, I have to go home and actually work)

This is by far, the cleanest places I have stayed - ever! I am already wondering when I can come back and stay here again. It is close to everything, located on a beautiful hillside, has breathtaking views, and reminds you that God created beauty everywhere!

There is enough room that you are not right on top of each other, but definitely cozy enough that you feel you are on a romantic getaway. You will be so glad you picked this property to rent!!

Thank you for making this a phenomenal spring break for my kids and me!!

Couldn't have chosen a better place to host a baby shower !

  • 5 of 5
Amazing, tranquil, beautiful and private. I hosted a couples baby shower for my daughter and son-in-law this past Saturday, I don't even know where to start it was so incredible. The owners were so wonderful and helpful, the views are from this spanish style home are amazing along with the grounds. Everyone was to impressed from the beautiful entrace to the views, the grounds and patio areas. It was truly a magical day because of this property. My daughter and son-in-law stayed in one of the rooms which is really a mini apartment with everything you could need. I especially loved the beautiful spanish tile in the bathroom. They were absolutely blown away with the room and grounds and view. I brought in decorations, tables chairs and a company that made fresh food and the owners made everything so easy. Thank you for sharing this property and making the baby shower such a great success. Feel very blessed to have found this special place.
