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.

Fantastic lil studio everything you need done right

  • 5 of 5

Everything was well thought out down to the bottle of when and cookies when we arrive. Convenient to all of San Diego has to offer. The only down side was the shower the water was very hard to regulate tempeture. I will be staying here in my next trip to the west coast thank you so much.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you had difficulty with the water temperature. We have an "On Demand" system and if the water flow isn't turned up enough to sense the demand for hot water it's very easy for the system to switch the heater off and on. Thank you for this feedback. We will add a statement in our Casita Instructions to address this. We are happy you found the Casita appealing and the location convenient.

Fun in the San Diego sun at Casita Del Sol

  • 5 of 5

We had never stayed at a Casita before, this one looked so nice in the pictures that we took a chance on it. It was everything and more than we hoped it would be. The location is convenient to all of the attractions we enjoy close to a major highway, but very quiet, it is a safe neighborhood, grocery stores and restaurants are near by. The Casita is decorated so beautifully with its Spanish/Mexican motif. It is colorful, clean, remodeled, and equipped with most everything to make for a wonderful vacation. We had access to the owners wonderful garden with a gas BBQ, shaded seating area, water feature and flowers. When we arrived, there was a bottle of good California wine and delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies. WOW. There are plenty of colorful Fiesta Ware dishes, pots and pans, bath towels, 2 beach towels, a small cooler, even rain umbrellas, which you probably won't need, but how nice is that. Every time I thought, they won't have this or that, I usually found it. The most attractive aspect of the stay was the owners, Jim and Lynn. They are some of the nicest people we have ever met. We really enjoyed visiting with them when we went into their garden. They never came to our door unless we asked for something so you know they respect your privacy. We had an incident when leaving, we locked the Casita with a suitcase still inside. The owners were away for the morning, but returned to rescue us and didn't get a bit angry that we inconvenienced them. Fortunately we had plenty of time before our flight home (the property is convenient to airport also).

Believe me you will enjoy your stay in San Diego at Casita Del Sol!
