Originally built in 1913 as a building for the horse carriage and caretakers family, this wonderfully inviting home was remodeled by a local architect/design team to include the finest of luxury modern living while capturing the artistic detail using period antiques and custom artwork. This spacious one bedroom/one bath home is perfect for artists, writers, world travelers or anyone who appreciates a home that is itself a living work of art.

The kitchen is set-up for anyone who loves to cook including heavy-duty cooper pots and pans, basic spices, gas stove, microwave, and dishwasher. The large outdoor deck is completely private and has lighting on timers with an outdoor gas BBQ grill, accentuating it as a wonderful space for outdoor dining all year round.

But the best part of all is, the owners of The Carriage House are passionate about helping horses and believe in respecting the circle of life for the horses that once lived on the property therefore 10% of all proceeds will be donated to non-profit horse rescues.

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.

Venture just four miles away to the famous downtown Gaslamp district where you will find entertainment, theater, live music, movies, shopping, and internationally acclaimed restaurants

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!!!!

a week in San Diego

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, who live in a small town in Florida, really like California. We chose the Carriage House for our stay in San Diego because of the colors! It turned out to be just right for a relaxing, romantic get-away (from our pets!) Everything in the house is carefully chosen--from the nice closet to the tiles and the warm fan in the bathroom to the perks in the kitchen (like aluminum foil). My favorite thing was the lighting, which you could ix and match for whatever mood you were in. You could also watch movies and play music on the tv. And the neighborhood is lovely. Be sure to take Suzanne up on her restaurant suggestions! I walked everywhere!

Wonderful little space!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week staying at the Carriage House and have already recommended it to many others. It's in a great neighborhood, is obviously taken care of well and with love and has everything you could ever need supplied. We had our toddler with us and he stayed in the closed off porch type room in a pack'n'play. The only thing I would caution about that is we found it difficult to regulate the temp in that room at night and so he woke up a little cold some mornings - we just grabbed a warmer blanket from Target and he was totally fine after that. You won't regret staying here!

Nothing Better in San Diego!

  • 5 of 5
The attention to detail in this cottage-type home is outstanding. The amenities (from pots & pans to artistic decor) create the feeling of a restful sanctuary. The location is perfect for strolling to deli, coffee, restaurants, shops and close enough by car to all that San Diego has to offer, but is so beautiful there's no need to leave! The outdoor patio was a great place to start the day with breakfast and a quiet spot in the evening for a nightcap. Susanne is a caring and thoughtful owner in everything she does. Do not hesitate to book the Carriage House!!

Stylish and comfortable home, perfect location

  • 5 of 5
The Carriage House was our last stop on a long road trip and it was the perfect place to call home. Super quiet neighborhood in a great location within walking distance to restaurants (short drive to tons of other great neighborhoods). The house is beautiful, comfortable and clean. Suzanne was extremely helpful and great to work with. She's super responsive and had great recommendations for restaurants and activities. The things that made our stay special:
1) The bed is super comfortable.
2) The deck, outside table and landscaping felt just like home.
3) The lighting is beautiful!
4) I loved the design because it was stylish, warm and comfortable.
5) We were lucky to get a rainy night and the sound of the rain on the sitting room roof was incredible.
We will stay at the Carriage House again when we visit San Diego. It was a wonderful experience.

Wonderful house, wonderful location and wonderful people!

  • 5 of 5
The Carriage House is absolutely amazing. We were welcomed by unexpected delights from the Owners; how personal and perfect! The house is beautiful, comfortable, welcoming, and in such a great location! The neighborhood is one of the best in San Diego and makes you want to never leave. :-) The house is decorated beautifully!!! You will feel like you're in a resort retreat on a far away island. We used the patio every morning for breakfast and coffee. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you may need and there's even a washer and dryer, which we took advantage of! Susanne was such a joy to meet. What a remarkable person. You can feel the pride of ownership in every detail within the house. We felt lucky to be guests of the house and definitely felt lucky to be a part of a donation that contributes to saving the horses.

We look forward to when we can go back and stay at the Carriage House. We wish our visit could have been for longer!!

Comfortable home and great location!

  • 5 of 5
The Carriage House is remarkable...comfortable, welcoming, and a great location! The quiet neighborhood provides a friendly and warm environment. Inside it is hard to choose where to sit...the private patio, sun porch, or living area. The kitchen is fully equipped, there's a washer and dryer for the renter's convenience, and plenty of storage space to unpack and feel "at home." The owner's provide a wonderful list of restaurants and site seeing suggestions.

We loved the location! Close to great eateries...try The Patio...and within walking distance of Balboa Park. We discovered a drug store and grocery a few blocks away. Beaches are only minutes away...La Jolla and Mission Beach were within 15-20 minutes drive. The Carriage House provides very nice beach towels, eliminating packing them!

We appreciated the owner's donating our rental to "save the horses." The charity supports wild horses in their natural habitat, a reminder of part of our nation's history.

Our biggest regret about renting? We didn't stay longer!!
