Mission Trails Park is a 3 minute walk from the house where you can walk or bike the canyons at your leisure.

This 3 bedroom 2 bath custom home has a large second story great room that is also used as a 4th bedroom. There are panoramic views and spectacular sunsets from both the elevated deck upstairs and the lower deck that juts out into the canyon from the tiled gas BBQ area. Enjoy your evenings with the nightly view of the Sea World Fireworks. This home has an updated open kitchen/family room with two fireplaces and view from almost everywhere in the home..

This house has a formal living room and dining room. The modern kitchen has a breakfast nook and is open to the family room.. The great room upstairs has a bed, futon couch, desk and a game table and chairs. There is a 2nd floor deck for sunning and enjoying the view. This is a fun house with room for your family in a very safe neighborhood.

My home away from home

  • 4 of 5
I stayed at this rental property for four months while working temporarily in the San Diego area. This was a great place to come home to after working all day. The house is spacious and the views are truly awesome as they claim. The sunset views were great. Everything I needed was provided in the home. Neighborhood was quiet. The homeowners were terrific as well...very responsive to all issues that popped up regardless of how emergent they were. They were pleasant, friendly and very respectful of my privacy, never showing up unannounced. If the hot tub was hooked up and running I would give this rental review a five star. Unfortunately it wasn't and it's not clear if they will ever hook it up for renters because of the liability concerns. I would describe Tierrasanta as a suburb of San Diego so a car is needed to get around. I had visitors off and on throughout my teenage son got bored but I believe that is fairly typical of teenagers...the younger children that came to stay loved the house. Lots of space to run about and play. All adults that came to stay with me absolutely loved the place. After a long day of sightseeing they could return to the house and just relax.
I recommend this property. Hopefully I will be able to stay here again when I am in the San Diego area.

I really enjoyed Laurie, she was very personable. We took our family out and had enough space to lounge around but at the same time we were ten minutes from everywhere.

Perfect for extended families

  • 5 of 5
My two sisters and I stayed here with our 7 kids for a week of adventure in our old hometown. The large kitchen and breakfast area were perfect for getting all the kids fed before their day at San Diego Zoo Camp. The three downstairs bedrooms provided ample sleeping space for the kids while the moms shared the loft upstairs. The neighborhood was nice and quiet, and the location was perfect for our activities. We are hoping to come again next summer.
Two suggested improvements: 1. garbage disposal in the kitchen sink; 2. half bath in the loft.

Nice house but not well stocked

  • 3 of 5
This house was very nice and roomy which was nice for out two young children to run around. The views were beautiful and it is in a nice neighborhood. The house is further a little further out from the things we were doing (ie beach, sea world, waterfront, etc.) and hence required more driving than we are used to when visiting San Diego. The other downside to being in a canyon in the summer is the risk of fires. On our second night there we came home to a brush fire just 1 mile from the house with the risk of being evacuated. Luckily evacuation was not necessary. However, fires are a reality in that area. With two small children I would not take that risk again.

The other most frustrating thing about this house is that it is not well stocked with cooking necessities (ie pots, pans, utensils, etc. were very sparse) and the owner only leaves you 1 roll of toilet paper each bathroom, 1/2 roll of paper towels, no soap - dish or bathroom, no garbage bags, no cleaning supplies, no laundry detergent, no tinfoil, baggies, seran wrap, etc.) and this was for 4 adults, 2 children staying an entire week. When we called to inquire we were told that these items were our responsibility. We have rented many houses in many different locations and we have always had basic items like I mentioned above stocked. It is not like the rent on this house is significantly reduced. And we were not informed ahead of time which meant we ended up empty handed and run out to purchase these items. From an owners standpoint that is a very minimal cost to provide added ease and comfort to renters.

Owner's Response: I am sorry but not surprised to receive this review from you. I received a call from you on the 4th day of your stay at the house. You told me you were very happy with the house and everything was absolutely wonderful except you were running out of toilet paper and soaps. I understand that you were upset when I explained to you that you were given a “start up” supply of toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, and bar soaps. It is the guests responsibility after that. Being hung up on by you, I knew that you would give me a bad review, however, you are misrepresenting the facts. While I was waiting for “special” items you had ordered the morning of your arrival (which I did at NO extra charge), I was able to see first hand that the cleaning crew put out the normal “start up” supplies. Each bathroom had (1) roll paper on the holder and (2) extra on top with (2) bar soaps in each bathroom. There was one brand new paper towel roll, a new bottle of dish soap and dishwasher soap. There is no aluminum foil, saran wrap or laundry soap supplied. This supply is better than the “standard” in this industry. There are spices and such that have been left from previous guests, however, none are guaranteed. The house is SO well supplied on kitchen items. It has 4 to 5 fry pans (stainless steel and non-stick), 5 pots (stainless and non-stick), and every sort of cooking item you could need. We have a rice maker, crock pot, steamer, bacon pan, blenders, and all sorts of baking and casserole pans. Previous guests have been very happy with the furnished kitchen (please see previous reviews). I have groups that range from 2 guests to 12 guests that stay from 3 days to 1 month and you are the first to be unhappy with the kitchen supplies.

The fires in all of California are a concern from the ocean to the mountains. It does not matter what area. It is a dry climate. The fire that you are referring to was a small brush fire 3 miles away and across the freeway. There was never any danger to any homes or evacuations.

As advertised, this house is very centrally located and an easy 15 - 20 minutes almost any location and/or attraction in San Diego and is very accurately explained and displayed on the website.

I try to be as accurate on my website as possible and have added the supply information to avoid any confusion in the future.

We loved this house.

  • 5 of 5
Our expectations and hopes were far exceded by the house.It was perfect for us.It has long distance views of mountains, and at night,city lights.The views are available from kitchen, living room, breakfast nook, master bedroom and the beautiful spacious upstairs area.The Terrasanta neighborhood is beautiful and great for walking. There is an enormous preserve within five walking minutes with national historical significance and interesting walking trails. There are three well furnished terrace seating areas on the ground level and a very large terrace off the upstairs room. All of these areas have panoramic views.The owners in their description of the property do not adequately explain beauty of views and location.
The house has an open layout with high ceilings and many windows and glass doors to capture the outdoors and the views.It has the feel of being larger than 2600 sf.The seating furiture was extemely comfortable and we were impressed by the quality of many of the furniture pieces.
It was amazingly well equiped.We found what ever we needed. We had our two year old grandchild with us and thought we would have to buy an expandable gate try to contain him but we found two gates in the laundry room.The washer and dryer are first rate as are the kitchen appliances.
When we arrived we had a problem with the micrwave oven. We called the owners and they both came the next day with a replacement. They were friendly,cordial and very helpful.
While in San Diego we visited all the major attractions. The house location was very good for traveling.Everything seemed to be a short drive away.
This is a 1st class property that I would highly recommend to a friend or relative.It really made our vacation.

Great vacation spot.....

  • 4 of 5
It certainly was a nice, spacious, well-equipped home. We had a wonderful time while there - and wished that we could have stayed longer (but had to get back to work).

Downside was that there was no televisions in 2 of the bedrooms (downstairs). Perhaps this can be corrected so that others would not be disturbed by others who want to watch tv. There perhaps can also be a bathroom (half) in the loft.

This property was close to everything as mentioned - and food stores were close by. The mountaintop was wonderful, and the neighbourhood quiet - with rabbits hopping around always.

We certainly would like to use the property again whenever in San Diego.
