Spacious Two Bedroom/One Bathroom 1000 sqr. ft. lower half of house on one acre. On southern edge of Escondido, next to huge park, close to agricultural reserve, yet 1 mile from Westfield Mall and Freeway. Fully equipped kitchen, Private Patio, Bike Shed, Spa, Pool. A note on the pool, it is surrounded by shade trees, which means that a certain amount of plant matter, leaves and twigs will blow into it. We make every effort to keep it clean, but it is a country pool.

Owner is avid cyclist who will point you to the great road and mountain biking in the area. The Palomar Mountain stage of the Tour of California ran right past the property. In addition there are many other great rides of all lengths at your doorstep. There are also many miles of mountain biking available from the back gate as well as Daley Ranch 10 minutes drive away. Other outdoor activities include hiking, kayaking, golfing, lounging in the sun and all the activities found in San Diego.

Local wineries and Stone Brewery as well as quaint Grand Ave with unique restaurants, pubs and wine bars are as close as 5 minutes away.

The world famous Safari park, an extension of the San Diego Zoo is a 10 min drive through beautiful countryside. It’s a 20 mile drive to the airport, Balboa Park and the zoo as well local beaches. Lego land, Sea World, Old Town and downtown San Diego are a 30 min drive.

Nice host, house with some issues

  • 3 of 5

There were some issues with ants, a broken door handle and a cat meowing late into the night. The basement apartment is old and a little stuffy. It is a good value, but definitely not spacious

Quiet and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, the host was accommodating and the little apartment had what we needed. When it got warm we jumped in the pool.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

Not far from the beaches. Jim is so super cool.

House is like an oasis with lots of plants.

No washer and dryer. If you have kids. Some spider webs on the house but overall it was great

Amazing home large and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoy this home just enough space for my family and I. The owner Jim was very accommodating and super friendly. If we come back to San Diego we will definitely stay here again. We will definitely recommend this home to all who wish to stay here.

unclean, weeds, back gate entrance, junk laying around outside, mosquitoes, holes in the ceiling showing the space between the rental and the upstairs where the owner lives, couch filthy, dead grass, sheets and towels were dusty and dirty. It did have a lot of outdoor space for parking and an outdoor garden.

Even better the second time

  • 5 of 5

For the past couple years my brother and I have flown down to California for San Diego Comic Con, the biggest problem since starting this venture in 2012 was where to stay, we could either opt for a hotel in the city (ridiculous prices) or one on the fringes of downtown (less expensive but often rundown and chore to reach the convention), luckily two years in when I came upon this website I found this property and my options became a lot less limited. It has bedrooms, a kitchen, refrigerator, pool and a place to do laundry, after previously spending money on hotel rooms only to have to rely on a Styrofoam chest full of ice to keep food and drinks refrigerated this place makes things a whole lot easier, its tucked away enough from the more downtown area yet close enough to the highway to allow some peace and quiet but also reach San Diego with ease. The owner was kind, courteous and happy to accommodate us. Can only hope to stop by again this year.
