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.

Great city location, close to everything we love to do.

  • 5 of 5

The casita was just like coming home, Jim and Lynne had every amenity covered from the most well stocked kitchen to their beautiful garden area. It was just a beautiful sliver of paradise in the middle of everything. University Heights is a warm and welcoming neighborhood, the people are so friendly. We will definitely be coming back, our new SD go to place. If you're lucky enough to live in San Diego- YOU'RE LUCKY ENOUGH!

Great Casita Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and me couldn't have been happier after our two-week stay in the Casita. This place is a treat. It is comfortable, clean, cozy, fully and attractively furnished with very hospitable hosts. I imagine younger folk would call this place-cool. Granted, no ocean views, or immediate beach access but location is central to much of what San Diego offers. Even being located on an alley we appreciated privacy and security. Located within walking distance of great coffee/bakery, and other eateries, a bodega for immediate needs, and a laundry. I'm tempted to say we won't return to San Diego unless Casita is available.

Overall an exallent place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Bed was very comfortable, lots of good restaurants in the neighborhood, close to lots of shopping and attractions. The only negative is the cramped bathroom but it can be dealt with.

Best VRBO place we have stayed at!

  • 5 of 5

Best VRBO rental my wife and I have stayed at. The place was beautiful, the location was great it is close to everything. Also Jim & Lynne are very kind and excellent hosts. A 5 star rating is a no brainer for my wife and I. When we plan to visit San Diego again we will definitely rent with Jim and Lynne.
