Bankers Hill Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Carriage House to Historic San Diego Landmark

Welcome to your special getaway!

This is a quaint Carriage House with one bedroom, one full bathroom, and a covered outdoor patio conveniently located right next to downtown San Diego - just about four blocks from the Little Italy - and comes fully equipped to make your vacation easy and relaxed. Entrance to the Carriage House is private and has an adjacent dedicated parking spot ample for any full sized vehicle.

There is hardwood flooring throughout, a microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, and an outdoor grill for those who would like to cook their own dinners. The bedroom has a double bed and is ideal for a single traveler or couple visiting San Diego for a few days.

Why Cassandra Stroud chose San Diego

The home is currently under stewardship of the trustee of the Bertha Stroud Family Trust and was purchased not only to establish a legacy estate for the heirs of the trust, but to share this historic landmark with locals and visitors to San Diego. This property was chosen because, just like the namesake of the trust, it is eclectic, whimsical, and possesses a unconventional character that can best be described as eccentrically unique.

This house is historically preserved and was registered as a California landmark for San Diego in 1975 after undergoing a complete structural and aesthetic restoration. So although there are modern amenities such as electric stove, energy saver refrigerators, microwaves, flat screen TVs, satellite dish cable, wireless internet, etc.....the construction is definitely from Victorian era. Stairs (both in and out) are steep and narrow, railings are historic (i.e. not current safety code), and plumbing is limited to a bath on each floor (except the first floor which has additional powder room and spa room because the former owner ran a luxury Day Spa).

Guests therefore must use caution when navigating between floors. This home is NOT suitable for small children, and guests under 18 may only stay on top floors.

What makes this cottage unique

We can make arrangements for your overnight guests to host an event - only with advanced notice, as there may be other guests staying on other floors. An event is any gathering that involves visitors to the house that are NOT part of the overnight guest list.

Very nice clean unit. Stayed with my 2 kids for 3 nights. Close to everything. Beach, shops, restaurants and Vons (safeway) all within walking distance or very very short drive. Separate entrance through the back of the house is very convenient along with the parking spot. All modern conveniences. Full kitchen saves a fortune on eating out everytime.

Location of this rental is great - easy walk to Coronado Beach and the stores and restaraunts on Orange Avenue. Rental itself has anything you'll need.

Great accommodations in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our 2 young children spent Memorial Day weekend here and we're very pleased. The location is great - away from the crowds but still close to the attractions San Diego has to offer. The unit was well equipped with everything you could possibly need. We loved the fact that we had a dedicated parking spot, no messing around with paying for hotel parking! The crab cake and fish and chips at the Islander on Orange Ave were delish!

Nestled in a lovely neighborhood: a Coronado hideaway

  • 5 of 5

You can't beat Coronado for a perfect weather getaway. The apartment was quaint and perfectly accommodated. Excellent spot to home base from. Spent time golfing, beaching and playing before heading to a conference in downtown. Can walk to the local beach and shopping/playing on Orange Street. Apartment is on a second floor, has private entrance, and parking spot.

Convenient neighborhood rental apartment

  • 4 of 5

This above-the-garage apartment is in a lovely Coronado Island neighborhood, walking distance from almost everything in the village. The unit is small, but clean, updated and well-equipped. Our main disappointment was that there were no outdoor spaces to sit and enjoy the nice weather. But it did get us out walking a lot and we got to know parts of the island we had not seen before.
