Overview

About the property

2 Master Bedrooms. 3 bedroom & 3 bathroom house full of charm.

Charming, Stylish, Fun and Playful!

Welcome to 'The Heart of San Diego', a California Arts and Crafts Bungalow built in 1914. Set yourself apart from the crowd, and experience a part of early 20th-century American architectural history! Our authentic California bungalow offers a fun and refreshing experience in one of the very best residential neighborhoods in San Diego!

Enjoy the warmth and enchantment of this house that has been lovingly restored and newly updated with modern amenities. During its most recent remodel, we took utmost care to preserve the charm and character while being playful with many of the decorations. Enjoy old world charm with modern appliances and conveniences.

There is a King Size bed in the rear master bedroom. The front master bedroom has a Queen Size bed plus a Twin Size pull out couch. The third bedroom has two Twin Size beds. The living room has a second pull-out couch; Queen Size. Both pull out couches have memory foam mattresses for extra comfort! The two Master Bedrooms and the three bathrooms makes everyone happy.

For the little ones we have a high chair, a Pack 'n Play crib, safety gates and an outdoor Little Tikes Climb and Slide.

Relax with a cup of coffee on the front porch, enjoy a book and glass of wine on the patio, soak in the Whirlpool bathtub, or take a stroll through the neighborhood and park. Of, if you're looking for a bit more excitement, grill on the patio and enjoy the outdoor living space, walk to the nearby shops, restaurants, and breweries. Get out and enjoy the weather and all that San Diego has to offer!

Finally, don't forget, the world famous beaches, parks, Coronado, the San Diego Zoo, Safari Park, and Sea World are all close by. If you're up for an even bigger adventure, there's always a day trip to Tijuana Mexico, Legoland, and Disneyland. The San Diego Convention Center is just minutes away.

We think 'The Heart of San Diego' is a gem, and we hope that you will, too!

About Ed

Proud to be born and raised near Boston Mass. I was lucky enough to spend a couple of years in California as a child. Not too soon after college, I had to pack up and move to San Diego. I've been here for over 20 years and I still appreciate the beauty of every single day.

I love living in this amazing San Diego neighborhood of North Park.

Ed purchased this house in 2005

Why Ed chose North Park

Relax and enjoy all this charming home complete with modern conveniences. This quiet location has all of the conveniences within a short walk yet is central to San Diego's larger attractions. I love walking 3 blocks to the trails at Bird Park and Balboa Park.

Wonderful property - great location

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed this house for 5 nights. Ed was very helpful in orienting us to the house and to the area including giving us updates on local happenings. The kitchen was nicely equipped and everything you might need was available in the house. The house is located in an area that you can easily walk to restaurants and shopping. It was a quick trip to the zoo and downtown.

Perfect setup for family travel

  • 5 of 5

Ed’s house is a lovely Craftsman in a charming, walkable neighborhood. We were traveling with our two young kids (2.5 years and 4 months) and it was perfect. There was a pack n play, a few toys including a slide in the side yard, washer and dryer, even a great claw foot tub for nighttime baths. The decor is nothing fancy, but perfectly comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped for the little bit of cooking we did. There are great restaurants within a short walk, and playgrounds too. Ed lives nearby and is available in minutes to helping with questions (eg changing the battery on a beeping smoke detector).

If we ever were to move to San Diego, we’d be looking for a house just like this! In the meantime, we will just hope this one is available when we have to visit! Thanks Ed for a great stay.

Perfect family house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in San Diego, and my husband can't stop raving about the location of this rental! Ed, the property manager/homeowner?/our main contact was fantastic. Very helpful and responsive. We traveled as a group of four adults, and three kids and this house slept us all perfectly. Our youngest used the pullout loveseat in the little niche in the front bedroom (it's separated from the rest of the bedroom by curtains) and the older boys took the room with the twin beds. The kitchen was stocked and Ed provided plenty of things like trash bags, paper towels, and coffee filters. The yard was a nice plus, the neighborhood was very quiet and made for nice walks. The proximity to Balboa Park and downtown was perfect. We'd come stay again in a minute. Thanks, Ed!

Excellent experience

  • 4 of 5

Overall, very positive experience. Very well-equipped throughout. Three bedrooms & three baths ideal for families. Comfortably furnished. Good outdoor space as well. Great location - convenient, lovely neighborhood to walk. Minor downsides for us - front queen bed very creaky, floors somewhat dusty, not clean enough for our one year old to play (no rugs). Communication with Ed was excellent throughout - thoughtful & responsive.

The community of North Park is located in the heart of the City of San Diego. North Park is home to Craftsman cottages, cafes, restaurants, coffee shops, several microbreweries, boutiques, and the North Park Farmers Market. The old North Park Theater has been rebuilt and now houses 'The Observatory North Park' featuring classic movies, shows and wonderful concerts. Ray Street Arts District is a bastion of creativity in the area.

This home is located on the North East corner of Balboa Park, the nation's largest urban cultural park. Home to 15 major museums, renowned performing arts venues, beautiful gardens and the San Diego Zoo, the Park has an ever-changing calendar of museum exhibitions, plays, musicals, concerts, and classes—all in the beautiful and timeless setting of this must-see San Diego attraction.

Just a few blocks away is Morley Field Park recreation area. Enjoy golf, hiking trails, mountain bike trails, tennis courts, baseball fields, a community pool, and picnic areas. Plus, the amazing disk 'Frisbee' golf course is perfect fun for all skill levels!

The surrounding community: Bordered by Hillcrest, University Heights and South Park, it is about a 10 minutes drive to downtown San Diego, the Historic Gaslamp District, and Petco Park Padres baseball stadium. Within 10 to 15 minutes are 4 major beaches; Coronado, Ocean Beach, Mission Beach and Pacific Beach.
