Why Bill Barclift chose San Diego County

The apartment is located in beautiful Mission Hills, conveniently located near all that San Diego offers. We are near downtown and ocean beaches, with easy access to major freeways. We are 10 minutes driving from the zoo, downtown, Balboa park, Safeco Field, Qualcomm Stadium, Old Town, Little Italy and many other tourist destinations. Mission Hills is one of San Diego’s premier communities, where you can stroll the neighborhood, enjoy our parks (Lewis Street Park, Pioneer Park, Presidio Park), dine at local eateries (we are 2 blocks from The Patio, one of San Diego's 2014 Best Restaurant award winners), sample wine and beer, take in a movie in Hillcrest, or shop at one of our local grocery stores...all within walking distance.

Great place for 2

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. Restaurants and grocery store were within a short walking distance. The small deck on the canyon side was pretty and quiet. We were able to see some birds that we don't get in Minnesota. The courtyard entry was nice and sunny in the morning.

The only thing we could have used is a magnifying makeup mirror and a little more comfy chairs on the deck, and to watch what little tv we had time for.

Serene Barclift Canyon Retreat Is Perfect for Extended San Diego Escape

  • 5 of 5

The Barclift Canyon Retreat truly is a quiet oasis in the midst of an urban area. We enjoyed the secluded courtyard and the lovely canyon views from the balcony. The unit looks exactly as it does in the photos, only better. The location is perfect and only 10 or 15 minutes to many area attractions. Excellent restaurants are a short walk away as well as some lovely shops.

Bill and Maryann are gracious hosts, in addition to being very kind, thoughtful, and helpful. It was a joy to return to such a serene environment at the end of each day.

The accommodations are stellar in every way and while we stayed for a month, we wished we could stay longer and definitely hope they have dates available when we are in San Diego again.

Charming, clean and wonderfully appointed studio!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this lovely studio for my in-laws to stay while in town for a two week visit. It is conveniently located in the heart of Mission Hills (short walk to restaurants, coffee shops, groceries, etc). The studio it self is nicely decorated and includes many amenities - even heated floors to keep your feet warm on chilly winter mornings! It is also extremely well maintained and clean. And as a huge bonus it has a deck off the back overlooking a canyon and in the front is a large patio for dining, relaxing or playing cards with the grandkids :). Thank you for a marvelous stay. We will return!

Outstanding Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Stop looking.... this is the best spot in San Diego... (unless you want to book the same time as us.) Bill and Maryann are wonderful to work with and very generous with their time and communication. The house is amazing as are the views. Everything is spotless and convenient. The house is right in the centre of Mission Hills which could not be more fun. Great restaurants, parks, nightlife and beautiful neighbourhood. Just relax and enjoy your stay.
