Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

This very special historic home built in 1917 has over 2,100 sq. ft. of living space in a quiet cul-de-sac with Spruce Canyon across the street, but has been beautifully updated and offers all of the modern amenities for your stay in San Diego. The home was originally owned by Thekla Heath, a prominent scenic designer and local artist known for hosting artists and actors performing at the local theaters. For virtual tour, see link at the bottom of the page.

The kitchen offers a Viking 6 burner range with a griddle (great for pancakes on a lazy day) and two ovens, a super quiet Meile dishwasher, and a wine refrigerator. The home features an extra large Dining Room and Living Room for those nights when you feel like staying in. Each bedroom has their own TV, and the Master Bedroom and Den have 42' flat screens and DVD players. The Master bath has double sinks and extra large walk-in shower. The guest bathroom has it’s original Orchid colored bathtub! The Outdoor patio has a gas BBQ, outdoor table for six, additional outdoor seating and a fountain. The closest market is Whole Foods but Trader Joe's, Vons, wine shops and cheese shops are close by.

The home is furnished with antiques and art to fit the period of the home, so families with children should use caution.

Many of the homes in Banker's Hill are designated as historically significant - check local listing for Garden and Home tours. It's walking distance to Balboa Park and the many museums there. Only 5 minutes to the famous San Diego Zoo, 10 minutes to Sea World and the Airport but the home is secluded and quiet.

The great restaurants and night life of Hillcrest, Banker's Hill, Little Italy, the Gas Lamp District, Seaport Village and San Diego Convention Center are just 3 to 10 minutes away; not to mention the shopping at Fashion Valley. Beaches and the bay are also close by, and we're freeway close for trips to nearby La Jolla, Del Mar, Coronado, Legoland and all that San Diego has to offer.

The Perfect Choice for our Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Recently our family of 6 stayed at this beautiful home. It was our first visit to San Diego and had no idea which location to pick for our rental. Based on reviews, we selected this home in Banker's Hill. It was less than a 10 min ride from the airport, which was great for us weary travelers to be 'home' and settled in so quickly. The neighborhood was clean and safe and filled with beautiful historic homes! We walked around the block every morning just to admire the homes and all the colorful landscaping. The location is walkable to a myriad of delicious restaurants and shops (Hillcrest). It was also so close to all the activities we planned and rarely necessitated the need to get on the highway. Balboa Park, the zoo, Little Italy, the USS Midway - all within a 10 minute drive. La Jolla, the wineries and Pacific Beach were all within a 30 min drive. We really couldn't have selected a better location. Now for this charming house....loved the wooden floors, chef's kitchen and the comfortable beds were just perfect. In the evenings, we enjoyed the private patio where we ate dinner and admired the gardens, especially the lemon trees and roses! Jim and Francisco were always a phone call away, although we never really need to call them for anything other than to thank them for sharing this lovely home!

we had a great time visiting all of San Diego while using this home as our base.

  • 5 of 5

The home is in a great neighborhood and was perfect for my family of four. It has all of the amenities you need and then some. We had wine and cheese on the back patio every night and made breakfast every morning. It's location is central to the area. We rented bikes and had a car but used the bikes for most every outing.

Jim and Francesco were easy to communicate with and are obviously very proud of their home.

Thanks guys!! We had a great time!!

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvelous time in SanDiego. The house is in the best location for getting to all of San Diego's attractions and delicious restaurants. From the binder of info we found the Royal Stone, and every morning ended up there! The backyard was cozy and inviting with comfortable chairs for watching all the hummingbird activity and birds, loved the fountain! The house has plenty of room with a great kitchen and cozy fireplace if you need it. Will stay again if ever in the area!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented countless homes in the last 10 to 15 years and as our family pulled away from this one we asked our traditional question . . . so what could have been improved. There wasn't a single thing we could think of. This is a gorgeous, impeccably decorated, comfortable, beautiful home with absolutely everything you need. Jim and Francesca were always available but never intruded. We could not have enjoyed this home more. S perfect 10.

Beautiful home in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this location and were extremely pleased with everything. The home is a remodeled early 1900's house that is tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. The kitchen is equipped with a Viking gas range that any chef would appreciate and the backward is truly magical in the evenings. There is no television in the main living area and this permitted us to relax and chat quietly without the constant din of tv noise. We biked everywhere from this location and will certainly return to this home and our beloved San Diego. Jim and Francisco are delightful as well.
