About our home
The spectacular view of San Diego Bay and our city skyline is one of the best features of our home. You'll want to sip your coffee on our deck in the morning and enjoy a glass of wine in the same place in the evening.
We have a beautiful 2-story, 280 sq. meter (3,000 sq ft) home in a quiet family neighborhood in the center of San Diego. There are three bedrooms.The master bedroom has a glorious king-size Tempurpedic mattress. In addition, there's a family room on the ground floor that includes two twin beds and a private bath. Throughout the house there are enough beds for a total of seven people. The ground floor is perfect for adult children; it feels like a studio apartment. Our home is built on a hill and the ground floor has French doors that open onto our backyard, where I harvest vegetables from a small organic garden.
Our furnishings are traditional, relaxed and cozy. You will feel at home here.
You'll like the fact that our home is close to many of the top San Diego tourist attractions: 5 minutes to Sea World http://seaworldparks.com/seaworld-sandiego, 30 minutes to Legoland http://california.legoland.com/, 1 hour to Disneyland http://disneyland.disney.go.com/.
Only 15 minutes from our home is our wonderful Balboa Park. Where you'll find, art, music, theater and the zoo!

If you love "the theata" you will adore The Old Globe. The internationally-acclaimed, Tony® Award-winning Old Globe is one of the most renowned regional theatres in the country, and has stood as San Diego’s flagship arts institution for over 75 years. It is also located in Balboa Park. There are usually two plays running in one of the three theaters. www.oldglobe.org
