Hillcrest Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

My husband and I are scientists and live half the year in Düsseldorf, Germany and half in San Diego. We recently fell in love with this beautiful city! As luck would have it -- we discovered this wonderful canyon home and completed a fresh updating of its interior just this year.

While away in Germany -- we are offering our special house to visiting couples or small families looking for a charming vacation home in Uptown San Diego.

Our close friend Kent will be managing the property in our absence. While we know we will miss it -- we are confident that visiting guests will enjoy this home as much as we do.

Keywords: This freshly remodeled Chalet-Style Home has high vaulted ceilings and an open Floor Plan. Tall sliding glass doors open to a charming walk-out Terrace and the tree filled Canyon below ... a serene and private setting for afternoon lounging and dining under the stars.

Home in a perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We certainly felt like home in this beautiful house. The location was perfect for exploring the city, especially as the car could be parked right in front of the house. We would certainly try to get this same rental, if we had a chance to travel back to San Diego area. The one star loss would be just a half a star if possible; only the really warm weather combined with the lack of proper air conditioning troubled us. Thank you for the owners and Kent taking such a good care of us!

loved this home

  • 5 of 5

We were in San Diego for a high school basketball tournament and stayed in this lovely home. The location was great with grocery store a block away. Lots of restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. Lovely deck area for morning coffee. We would stay here again!

Perfect Vacation Pad

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful home for five nights and we were sad to leave it. Of all the vacation rental homes we've enjoyed around the country, this one is now at the top of our favorites list. The friendly, quiet neighborhood location was perfect for hanging out on the beautiful back porch reading, bird watching, doing yoga, entertaining friends, grilling a delectable dinner that could be purchased within a couple of blocks at a number of wonderful grocery stores or from the local farmer's market. Besides enjoying the Hillcrest and Mission Hills neighborhood shops and restaurants, we walked to the amazing Balboa Park and ventured south/west to the ocean. The home is in a perfect location for those seeking a local experience with ease of access to a variety of adventures on foot, bike, or vehicle. Kent is a fantastic property manager who was friendly and available if and when we had any questions or concerns. That being said, we didn't have any concerns because the home is in perfect condition and has all of the amenities you could ever need, and then some. We enjoyed using the beautiful and well-stocked kitchen for meal preparations. The master bedroom is dark, comfortable, and quiet at night. The master bathroom shower is spacious and inviting after a day of hiking near the ocean or running in the nearby Balboa Park. There were only two of us, but the house is designed to suit four people very comfortably with two bedrooms and baths. The owners definitely have a gem of a San Diego home that we highly recommend as a vacation rental. Thanks for providing such a perfect vacation pad for our first San Diego visit.

Exceptional Find

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were coming to San Diego to visit my brother,who also lives in Mission Hills. Usually we stay in La Jolla but decided to try a closer location. There were not many choices but Eagle Street caught our eye. We couldn't have been more pleased ! The house is just as described - on a quiet cul de sac yet near a bustling street with good restaurants, coffee shops, the flag ship grocery store, Von's. It is also near easy access to the airport, Balboa Park, routes to downtown. The house itself is lovely, light and airy and immaculately clean. It has two comfortable bedrooms, two stylish bathrooms, a full and gorgeous kitchen, living and dining area and a sweet deck where we ate our breakfast every morning, overlooking the arroyo. I think one of the aspects about Eagle Street that made it different from any of the many other VRBO places we have stayed was that it was clear that its owners lived there some part of the year - that is, it was FULLY appointed, not just for rental purposes. It was supremely comfortable, almost luxurious, yet homey. Kent, who manages the property when the owners are in their native country, couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. More and more, we have come to feel that the personal interactions we have in setting up the reservation set the tone for the visit itself and add a special magic to the experience. We can't recommend this property more highly and we will certainly hope it is available when next we visit San Diego.

I left my heart in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

I loved this beautiful home where I stayed as part of my 3 month road trip in southern California and Central America. It was a true haven in a perfect location for walking to markets, interesting shops, grocery shops and specialist food outlets as well as cafes and restaurants. I also loved being close to the independent Landmark cinema which showed some great films during my stay. I used the excellent San Diego public transport network every day and Hillcrest is perfectly located for travelling to all parts of the city, including downtown and the Bay, Balboa Park, Old Town, the beaches, Santa Fe Depot etc. Eagle Street is a lovely, quiet cul-de-sac where we enjoyed using the beautiful, spacious deck. Everything was as described, though it was so clean, tidy and comfortable with everything that you need provided, that I was reluctant to leave and face housekeeping duties at home. Kent was really helpful, made sure we were comfortable and made arrival and departure very quick and simple. Arriving back to grey skies, drizzle and freezing temperatures in the UK I am already planning my return trip to those blue skies of San Diego.
