About Jim and/or Lynne Manner

We currently live in the front house of the property and have been in our home since 1982. We found this lovely property on the way to a Charger game and couldn't resist the custom Spanish style of this 1920's era two on one. We started out renting and we were fortunate to have the opportunity to purchase the property. We were even more fortunate to be married in the back yard; all six kids and one happy St. Bernard. We both grew up elsewhere in California, but we met in San Diego and have lived in our home for 30+ years and can not imagine leaving. The back house (casita) was a rental when we bought and was kept as a rental for most of our time here. Recently, we remodeled and upgraded the cottage into the casita.

Jim and/or Lynne Manner purchased this studio in 1983

Why Jim and/or Lynne Manner chose San Diego County

We bought here because our work was nearby and schools for our children were close. We are now retired and our children have left the roost. Our home is situated right in the middle of everything that is inviting in San Diego. Neighborhood restaurants and coffee houses are within four blocks. We are very close to high-end shopping malls, the Gaslamp District downtown, Balboa Park, the Zoo, beaches, ball parks, and just 1+ hour from the beautiful and very quaint historic mountain town of Julian.

What makes this studio unique

The casita is located in a quiet neighborhood that is walking friendly and very close to freeway access in all directions as well as public transportation.

The Best

  • 5 of 5

This was the best rental property we've stayed in . Extremely clean, comfortable, well-maintained, extremely well-stocked, very quiet. Took morning walks through nice neighborhood. Owners were very swift with communication prior to our arrival, extremely accommodating, kind and haven't missed a thing with their property! Would love to return! Thank you, Jim and Lynne!

The perfect location in the perfect city - San Diego!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped into the Casita Del Sol Manner, we were enchanted. While the online photos and video were on point, you just can't fully comprehend it's beauty until you are there in the present moment. The space is so well crafted, aesthetically beautiful and efficient - we were pleasantly surprised by how expansive this tiny house felt to us during our week long stay. The full sized kitchen is incredibly well equipped and having access to an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill was a wonderful bonus! Stepping into the outdoor garden space was like an oasis in the city. We were also very impressed by the location. Despite the heavy CA traffic, it seemed like we could get to any San Diego attraction we wanted to in about 15 minutes. I especially liked the warm and welcoming property owners - they made us feel right at home. The neighborhood feel of University Heights was also great. It was a short walk to a great coffee shop and several restaurants. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. In fact, if they let me, I'd move in permanently :-).

Great stay for our honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

The casita is a wonderful place to stay in San Diego, the pictures do not do justice on how nice this little studio house is! The price is great and the owners were kind. They gave us privacy during our honeymoon, but also showed hospitality by providing us with not only everything we needed but with champagne and cookies as well. We would recommend this place to stay while visiting San Diego and we hope to visit and stay there again.

Charming casita in University Heights

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have spent a week in the Manner's casita every August for my grandson's birthday, for 5 years. It is ideally situated for us.

For those wanting to visit the waterfront sites, parks, museums, etc,, You will need a car, but it isn't far to downtown. Unlike many other VRBO

rentals, this has its own parking space. It is very quiet and the Manners are excellent hosts, providing all the comforts of home.
