Experience the timeless character of San Diego at this dog-friendly, two-bedroom bungalow, a charming and eclectic getaway with a classic front porch, a private back patio and outdoor kitchen, and a wonderfully walkable location close to parks, restaurants, and neighborhood entertainment.
This cheerful cottage is located in University Heights, just two blocks from the grassy expanse (and popular summer concerts) at Old Trolley Barn Park. You'll be within a short stroll of neighborhood restaurants, two miles north of Balboa Park and the world-famous San Diego Zoo, and four miles from the Gaslamp Quarter.
The living space is full of craftsman details and whimsical decor, from lovely built-ins to a playful collection of wall art. Spend your days riding bikes around the city and return home to relax on one of the sofas, watch a few cable shows on the flatscreen TV, or take a seat on the front porch and watch the world go by.
Spin a record on the turntable and begin dinner preparations in the full kitchen, where you'll find a broad selection of culinary tools on the pegboard wall. Whip up some fresh vegetable dishes with ingredients from the Sprouts Farmers Market, and sit down to enjoy them in the dining room for four.
But you'll have few incentives to remain indoors with such a beautiful stone patio waiting out back. Escape the summer sun under the canopies, use the stainless steel gas grill and outdoor kitchen to prepare summer barbecues, and enjoy balmy nights under the stars at the patio table.
With two bedrooms and one full bathroom, this San Diego bungalow can accommodate as many as six guests (but no more than four adults). The first bedroom has a comfortable queen-size bed with plenty of drawer space underneath, while the guest bedroom has a second flatscreen TV that conceals a queen-size Murphy bed behind it.
Two twin-size futons provide additional sleeping space. And you'll have no problem making dinner reservations, planning outdoor adventures, or even catching up on a bit of work thanks to the in-home WiFi. Plus, you'll be able to bring along one dog if you like, but keep in mind that a pet fee applies.
Known and loved across the United States for its fantastic year-round weather and laid-back atmosphere, San Diego is the perfect place for a fun-filled family vacation or an easy getaway with friends. Walk to Mystic Mocha each morning for breakfast, plan an afternoon picnic at Trolley Barn Park, and spend an evening or two enjoying drinks and dinner in the Gaslamp Quarter.
And no trip to this sun-filled city would be complete without a visit to the San Diego Zoo, where you can spend days learning about the 3,500 rare and endangered animals and 700,000 exotic plants that make their home at this stunning 100-acre facility.
