THINGS TO DO:

Choose from some of the best restaurants in town, less than one mile away.

Walk three blocks to The Mission Hills Nursery, the oldest plant nursery in San Diego established in 1910.

Take a five-minute cab ride to Old Town for authentic Mexican food.

Stay in and read or watch TV in bed to the peaceful sound of the water feature or the silence of the majestic old trees.

Join the famous Mission Hills Garden Walk and meet new people while getting a first hand tour of this architecturally unique and affluent neighborhood.

Open the numerous windows and doors in the sunroom to create a feeling of being outdoors yet inside reading or watching TV.

Enjoy a glass of wine or beer at the English pub table or dine outdoors on the spacious deck under the stars.

Walk just a few block for morning coffee at the local bakery/coffee shop and stop to shop for gifts, get a massage, take a yoga class or pick up some food items at the neighborhood market on your way home.

Throw the beach towels in the car (supplied) and drive ten miles to the beach. At the end of the day you get to come home to a spotlessly clean quite house away from the crowds.

And of course, don’t miss the opportunity for food, music, and local produce at the Mission Hills Farmer’s Market every Wednesday. Experience local San Diego.

About The Owner

We feel so blessed to be the owners of The Carriage House. Originally we set out with a goal of buying a vacation home to create a reliable stream of revenue for horse rescues. We couldn't believe it when we found an actual Carriage House. Most of these homes that used to hold the horse carriage and caretakers family have been torn down. Despite our full time, sometimes hectic jobs, we love meeting guests who stay at The Carriage House and have made lifelong friends. We feel like its not just us giving back to the horses but all of our guests who are part of this team. For those interested, we send letters with follow up stories on all the horses helped through donations of The Carriage House. What could be better than staying in an amazing place and helping rescue animals.

Why The Owner chose Mission Hills

The Carriage House is influenced by our extensive travel and experience staying in boutique hotels. Being in Mission Hills, the most prominent area of San Diego, was a bonus for us when we found the property. We take walks when we are on vacation and loved the fact that our guests can stroll along under hundred year old trees. For us, the place we stay on vacation is part of the experience therefore no detail can be too small. Artistically, the Carriage House decor is focused on a modern worldly feel so that guests from all over the world will feel comfortable. This property is an important part of our goal in creating a reliable source of revenue for the purpose of saving horses. Your stay in The Carriage House directly benefits the lives of horses by providing hay, shelter, and medications. The fact that this home was originally a Carriage House, which held the carriage and was a living area for the caretakers makes it even more special to us. Our hope is that our guests return home from their vacation with their own Carriage House story to tell.

What makes this house unique

What we love about this place is how centrally located it is. It is literally close to everything. At the same time though, you get to get away from the hustle to your own oasis in a quite neighborhood. Walk to the local shops and have coffee. You'll find great restaurants less than one mile away. Actually our favorite restaurant in San Diego is called the Red Door and is so close you hardly need the car. Looking back, we used to sit at this restaurant and, over a few glasses of wine, discuss how we could start a business to fund horse rescues. I guess this house right around the corner was listening!!!!

Great location, peaceful and quiet

This home is a great place to take a break from all of the traffic and crowds, perfect place to rest and relax after a long day seeing all of the places on your list of the many things to see and do. This was an easy place to come and go from, close to everything. Lots of good places to go to around the home.

Just Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5
You must book your stay at The Carriage House! This was our first time using VRBO and Susanne has set the bar high. The house is extremely clean and exactly as described. When we opened the door we found very soothing music playing, the lighting set and a bottle of wine awaiting our arrival. What a great way to start our vacation! The Carriage House is super close to everything. We had no trouble navigating our way around. We really can't recommend this place enough. Book your vacation...you won't regret it.

Wonderfully relaxing and peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was a wonderful place to stay for us (2 people). From the moment we entered the front deck, we knew it would be peaceful and relaxing yet energizing for the next day's adventures. Located in Mission Hills we were minutes from just every major attraction, district, hiking, fabulous beaches, Coronado, and the airport. The trolley was nearby but we used our car for all our travel needs. The living quarters were comfortable and decorated with such great detail, it was evident the owner's intent was to make travelers feel at home in their surroundings. The bed was a fabulous retreat at night after roaming about the area. The kitchen was supplied with fabulous amenities to make very possible meal imaginable - we did a lot of cooking. We really didn't need anything extra than what was provided. The neighborhood was quiet and attractive. The welcoming gifts with all the handy instructions and recommendations were very welcoming and spot on. We tried Snooze for breakfast on our last day after the half marathon and it was fabulous. The bathroom was great. The shower had good pressure and quality products were offered so don't worry about bringing your own. We are very active people and we found ourselves out most of the time in the beautiful weather and home later to cook dinner. It really was such a relaxing retreat to unwind, reconnect, and just enjoy the scenery. You won't be disappointed. I would like to state the cottage comfortably houses 2 people and maybe a child. The quarters may be tight for more than that. The cause to donate a portion of the rental fee to rescue horses is a wonderful one and a source of motivation. If you find yourself needing urgent care like I did, the urgent care center at Scripps in La Jolla was fabulous. In and out and the staff was wonderful.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I often stay in rentals when we are traveling and the Carriage House is by far one of the best places we have stayed. It is perfect for two people, I can't think of one thing that needs to be added in regards to amenities. The location is perfect and the neighborhood is quiet and friendly with great coffee within walking distance. The patio is wonderful, grill worked fine and the kitchen was well stocked. It was absolutely wonderful!

We unfortunately did not get a chance to meet the owners, however there were snacks and a bottle of wine with a nice note waiting for us when we arrived. We will definitely be staying again when we return to San Diego. Thank you for sharing your lovely Carriage House!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
The Carriage House was a wonderful place to stay during our vacation in San Diego. Perfect location in Mission Hills, walking distance to parks, shops, and restaurants. The house was our home away from home and had everything we needed, including a fully stocked kitchen. The owners were very friendly and helpful and easy to get in contact with. We traveled with our infant son and the owners even provided a Pac' N Play for us. Highly recommend!

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
From the minute we saw this listing on vrbo, we knew this was the place for us! The photos are exactly what you'll find (and sometimes, this is not the case), so we were more than thrilled when we arrived to find this charming, creative gem of a cottage to be exactly what we'd hoped! Susanne's attention to detail not just in upscale amenities and the decor (which are fabulous!!!) but in her attentive way she responds and follows up (you truly get the sense she genuinely cares about the details, needs and comfort of her renters!). The cottage is located in a very beautiful, quiet, residential neighborhood and we felt very safe and very much at 'home'...perfect, just what we wanted/needed! Know, that it is a cozy, intimate place, yet still gives you a few spaces to have some privacy. We were also amazed at how centrally located the cottage was as well, so driving to various parts of town were quick and easy. The other piece that caught our attention is Susanne's passion for her horses and the awareness she brings to their cause! We are happy to know that we are able to participate. Thank you Susanne + Elizabeth for opening up your lovely cottage to strangers and making us feel 'at home' and like 'old friends'! ;) L+A
