Dave has a soft spot in his heart for the military, the travel industry, and the elderly; just ask about discounts in those categories.
Dave and/or Donna purchased this house in 1995
This property is central to everything that makes San Diego such a popular tourist destination. MCRD, Old Town, the airport,local beaches, Downtown San Diego, Sea World and Belmont Park are all just minutes away from home. With its stunning views and many luxuries it is the perfect home away from home. Being so close to everything means less time getting there and more time being there so you have more time to spend relaxing, having fun and enjoying your vacation. There is a one bedroom apartment attached to the home and when Dave isn't flying he can be found on property and is always up for good conversation and can help you with whatever you need!
San Diego is wonderful: the museums at Balboa Park, it hailed and rained on us at Safari Park, we joined the houseful at Guadeloupe and enjoyed the food outside under a heater, Old Town saw us many times for eating and shopping, the historic area kept us walking back into history, the youngers went sea lion "watching" (loved that) while we (who did a whale watch tour off Maine a few years ago) toured the Museum of Art, Legoland was thrilling for Grandson Sam, Petco Park was exciting to tour especially the locker room. Having come from three parts of the country, mostly we were together all week, rare these days.
We found the house to be wonderful!! Oddly with all the beauty in the kitchen we never cooked a single meal, microwaved leftovers, coffee pot kept us going in between restaurant stops, providing leftovers galore. We couldn't get enough of marveling at all the property provides, the roses, the lemons, the entertainment centers, the beautiful baths. And to top that, the location was so convenient to everywhere we wanted to go. In minutes we found ourselves at our chosen location! Some even walked to Old Town and back, quite a return uphill walk. I'll never forget our first drive UP Bandini Street, like driving up a "yellow brick wall", said our daughter. It was an unexpected thrill both up and down for we living in the flat land of our part of NJ. We thank you again for providing such a gorgeous house to call "home" for a week.
We've used the Bella Casa home for the past two years, during a conference in the area. Our team always comes back and raves about the home, and both Donna & Dave. This visit especially Dave took time and chatted with the group there for a bit, the team really loved this. This beautiful home is perfect, and we hope to keep coming back year after year.
This house was perfect! From the second i contacted Donna she was unbelievably helpful and accommodating to our group of 9. The house was so comfortable and easy access to everything we wanted to do. She was easily contacted before and during the stay for questions. Donna is also a photographer and did a session for us and our local family. (highly recommend if you get the chance) Overall this house was a great way to spend our 5 days in the San Diego area.
7 of us stayed here for a few days in May,WOW What a great house and right where you want it to be,near the airport and not to far from all the nightlife in the Gaslamp area.Donna couldnt do enough for us when we arrived,showing us round the house,which is HUGE,and even taking us shopping....all in all we had a fantastic stay here,we even had a BBQ which isnt like us,it was just so inviting on the balcony...Thanks very Much Donna and hope to see you again in a couple of years.
Our family looks for interesting places to congregate for our annual reunions. This, our first experience with VRBO, was ideal for us. The three bedrooms upstairs were just right for the 6 adults and three children. Our granddaughters had plenty of space to play in the great room and so much to enjoy in San Diego.
Donna arranged an hour-long photo shoot in Balboa Park - the first time we had professional pictures taken in an informal setting. We will treasure the nearly 100 beautiful pictures of our family in all its combinations and permutations.
My college showcase soccer team and I stayed at Bella Casa last week for the Surf College Cup and our stay was nothing short of AMAZING !!
Firs, Donna and Dave were fantastic. They worked with our busy schedule and were accommodating and helpful at every turn. They offered us assistance with everything, if we needed it, from sightseeing to directions, they were the nicest people ever.
The pictures that we saw of the house did not do it justice. The house is immaculate and it was perfect for our team. We were able to make collective dinners in an beautiful, large, and completely stocked kitchen. The house had windows and skylights galore that allowed for amazing natural light to come into the house. The views both day and night were incredible and we were close to everything; the Gaslight District, Hillcrest District, Old Town, and the airport was only 10 minutes away or less. Bella Casa is located right near the freeway, but far enough away, so that there is no intrusive noise as a result. The bedrooms were beautiful and spacious and I can say that I haven’t slept that well in quite awhile, thanks to the fantastic beds in each bedroom.. Donna and Dave made sure that the house was fully stocked from utensils to towels and bedding, we did not want for anything. When resting, we spent time relaxing in front of the massive 73 inch flat screen in the living room and every other room also had lovely flat screen TVs as well. The large decks on the first floor and the second were stellar and the views in the evening of the airport, the surrounding bay, and also the hills in the distance was stunning.
On our departure day, Donna and Dave came and talked to the team and I and shared some stories and asked how we fared in the tournament. They were genuinely nice and better hosts than anyone would ask for. We hope that next year, when we return, that they will allow us to stay once again.
Bella Casa, Donna and Dave, give their guests an experience that will leave you wanting to come back over and over again.
Thank you for such a great and welcoming experience and we will be back next year.

We were looking for a house close to Mission Beach and the freeway that could accommodate three families. Bella Casa fit the bill. It was very comfortable, well furnished, convenient, and a great place to stay. We enjoyed the living area, the deck and views, and the great kitchen. If we have another reunion in San Diego, Bella Casa will be at the top of our to-do list for reservations. Mahalo
