Our home is in a neighborhood which is considered metro San Diego, 10 minutes from most attractions like Balboa Park, Sea World and downtown.
We overlook Mission Bay which is a popular place in San Diego for walking and jogging. There is a view of the bay from the kitchen/dining area, with great view of Sea World fireworks from the balcony. Our home was built in the 50s but has been expanded and modernized recently. While it is technically a 4-bedroom home, we have listed it as a 2-bedroom, as 2 of the bedrooms have been designated as offices. Our home has everything someone on vacation in San Diego could possibly want/need.
One bedroom is ensuite with a 1/2 bath. Both bedrooms are equipped with tempurpedic mattresses which are supremely comfortable. Office #1 is equipped with a new 27" Imac. Office #2 has a flat screen into which you may plug a laptop. This office also has a copier, scanner, fax, postage meter, etc. Both offices have excellent speaker systems for each computer. Reception room has 52" flatscreen with dvd. Flatscreen TV/DVD's in both bedrooms. Cable TV with 60+ channels and wifi throughout the house. There are two portable radio/stereo systems with ipod docks.
The kitchen is new with upgraded stainless appliances. There are two outdoor dining areas, one with a balcony/view and another just off the kitchen with a barbecue.
There are 3 major shopping malls in San Diego (Fashion Valley, UTC and Horton Plaza) and we are dangerously close close (7 mi.) to all 3.
Our home is nonsmoking and we prefer no pets or children.
This is a great neighborhood because it is close to everywhere in San Diego. You can sightsee and come home for a break or a bite to eat and then go out again. In other areas of San Diego County, like Escondido, Carlsbad, Vista, Encinitas, Rancho Penasquitos, San Marcos and other cities, you can't do that. Traffic into and out of San Diego can be horrible. If you are not in 'metro San Diego' you could spend a significant part of your vacation in traffic! [Please note that this site has not pinpointed us accurately on the map.. we are farther south and west, directly across from mission bay]
There are two in our party. We are a professional couple, aged 57 and 65, non-smokers. We are looking forward to our first exchange experience. I am a self-employed business woman.
[http://www.discoverassets.com/] As a researcher in the court system, I have passed a stringent background test. My husband is an economist, retired from a long career at Bath University and thus has many local references in the UK. We both have high standards and would leave your home as you left it. If you have pets, in most cases, no need to send them off to boarding. We are fine with looking after plants etc too.
