Overview

Hillcrest House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Spacious & Comfortable

The moment you enter the front gate, you’ll feel right at home in your peaceful, private and serene oasis. As walk through the front door of this gorgeous Spanish Revival home, you’ll be greeted with a warm and welcoming space combining classic comforts with modern amenities. The living room is an ideal place to relax and unwind with a good book; to catch up on your favorite programs with a premium satellite channel lineup, or to play games and enjoy family time together. For those rare, chilly winter nights, there is a warming fireplace to complete the cozy setting.

A well-appointed and fully stocked kitchen makes it a breeze to prepare a light snack at the breakfast bar, or to serve a full course holiday meal in the formal dining room set with handcrafted Luna Garcia pottery dinnerware. The master suite boasts an over-sized walk-in closet, a jetted tub , separate shower, and a California king-size bed (72" W x 84" L). The home is a great choice for families -- the guest bedroom is furnished with a queen-size bed (60" W x 80" L) and adjoins the second bathroom. Casa Paloma comfortably sleeps 6 adults between the two bedrooms and a gorgeous Murphy bed with a queen Serta "Perfect Night" plush mattress in the living room to accommodate two additional guests.

Please let us know if you require additional furniture for your baby or infant. We can provide a baby crib or a twin sized foam mattress & a highchair, for a one time $25 setup fee.

The house also includes an inside laundry room with all of the kitchen, bed & bath amenities and supplies you would expect in your own home.

The jewel of Casa Paloma is the lush courtyard edged with palms and tropical plants that invites you to sit and savor your morning coffee, pause for a glimpse the hummingbirds, or simply enjoy San Diego’s great weather. In the evenings, unwind with a glass of wine outside on the comfortable couch with the lanterns aglow casting a romantic light off the soothing fountain.

Why Birgit + Cindy + Paula chose San Diego County

We chose this house because of the convenient location close to everything San Diego - within walking distances to restaurants, and a short drive to beaches, downtown, Balboa Park -- CLOSE to everything, but nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood outside of the traffic and congestion.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My wife and I booked Casa Paloma as a joint birthday present to each other and we could not have been more happy with the choice. The location is perfect for the zoo, Sea World, Mission Bay, French Quarter, beaches, marinas, etc. The home itself is so warm and inviting it is just like being home, only with some great amenities, The owners, Paula and Keith, are very attentive and accommodating and wanted to make sure we had a great time. Also the website is one of the best I have experienced in providing guests every tool needed to make sure your visit is everything you could want. My family and I will definitely stay here again every opportunity we have when in San Diego and I cannot recommend this more to anyone visiting the San Diego area. You will not be disappointed.

Excellent Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful experience staying at Casa Paloma. Property images and descriptions were accurate, property was spotless and beautiful. Owners are VERY thoughtful in having everything you could need, have binder and web app that includes directions to house, favorite local restaurants and entertainment as well as simple things like Wi-Fi codes. They were also very responsive when I had questions or needed assistance. Location was fantastic - cute neighborhood and close to interstate, grocery stores and Hillcrest area (for restaurants and book shopping!). Our family spent week and took advantage of San Diego Go Pass - did a day at Zoo Safari Park, Legoland, Seaworld, Disney and Disney CA Adventure. Fantastic vacation -wish we had had more time at the house! Would definitely stay again and hope to!

Fell In Love!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stay at Casa Paloma could not have been any more perfect. The home and grounds were spectacular, spacious and immaculate with all the comforts of home. Being back in Mission Hills brought back great childhood memories and we only wish we could have stayed longer. The communication with the rental team before and during our stay far exceeded our expectations and the owner could not have been any more gracious. The location of the home is so close to downtown, the zoo, Balboa Park, Old Town and the airport that we didn't have to worry about traffic whenever we went exploring. The kitchen was stocked with everything we could have needed. We especially enjoyed sitting in the courtyard at night, enjoying the cool San Diego evenings and the soothing sound of the fountain. We will never rent a hotel room again and Casa Paloma will now become our San Diego "home" when visiting the area. We fell in love!

This is a nice rental home, well equipped and well located. The courtyard is lovely. The only downside is the street parking, which can be nonexistent.

Owner's Response: Bethany- We are so glad you enjoyed your visit to San Diego and your return to Casa Paloma. I can't believe a full year passed since we last saw you & Robert. The parking situation was a bit hectic over Super Bowl Sunday and we apologize you had difficulty parking right in front of the house that weekend. We hope to see you again next February and will extend our VIP discount for your third stay at Casa Paloma. Cheers, Paula

We just finished our second January at Casa Paloma, and have signed up for a third. Everything was perfect - the location, the house itself and the owners. We had a lovely month and are already looking forward to next year.

Owner's Response: Robyn -- it amazes me how much of San Diego you and John experience during your visits, packing in a year's worth of activities in a month! We loved having you as neighbors and look forward to your visit next January. Thanks for the gorgeous polka dot "sunflower" vase, it will be here when you return... Cheers, Paula

Reviewer Comments:

Casa Paloma was the perfect rental for our extended San Diego weekend. The property is in a very quite neighborhood near the end of a cul-de-sac, but is located in close proximity (<5 miles) to the airport, zoo, and gaslamp quarter. The property was very clean, well stocked with everything we needed and well maintained. For me, the real test for any vacation rental…. Would I stay at the property again if I were in San Diego? Absolutely.
