Great Home!

  • 5 of 5
My team traveled to San Diego for a large event downtown, and we needed a place to stay that would be close enough to everything for convenience, yet far enough away to escape the chaos of the event at the end of the day.

We were lucky enough to get this beautiful home for our stay, and will definitely rent it again whenever we're back in town. It was spacious enough to fit our large team, equipped with all of the amenities we needed and then some, and was cozy enough to make us feel like we were at home even though we were 3 states away!

At the end of each long day, our team was able to relax in the back yard on the patio and reflect on the day, play board games, and just enjoy each other's company... and in San Diego in July, that was probably the best part of our stay!

We will definitely be return customers, and would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a quiet home base in this busy little city.

best equipped

We rent a house or condo twice a year for vacations and the white house is the best equipped of all our previous vacations. Convenient location, nicely decorated, and plenty of room...why stay anywhere else in the San Diego area?

Great Home in San Diego

  • 5 of 5
We loved the home and location. Beautiful Italian buffet. Nice kitchen, dining, and relaxing area. Wonderful back yard with barbeque, tables, and chairs. Nearby B Street takes you right to the I-5 and to the downtown area. Luigi's pizza nearby could be addictive. Owners, Bo and Athena, were very thoughtful. Thank you.

White House home away from home AGAIN

  • 5 of 5
This was our large family of 10 2nd visit to the White House, this time was even better if that is at all possible. When we first came they had just opened this location and were still waiting on art etc., not that we missed it. This last visit they had art on the walls more pillows on the couches, the dining table that they were waiting for to be delivered way more games and now a hot tub. Their pictures are still not updated, but they are not that bad, they just don’t show the home as beautiful as it is as I mentioned in my last review…
We really would not stay anywhere else in San Diego, after a long day and many mouths to feed if you don’t want to cook in the fully stocked kitchen there are so many restaurants walking distance so everyone can get what they want. This time the Men all went to Balboa Golf course so close if we didn’t have our clubs we would have just walked.
Thank you again Athena and Bo, we will be back !!!

Golden Hill Gem

  • 5 of 5
For starters, we were ready to book for next year after our first day. Beautifully remodeled historical home in the Golden Hill area of San Diego, with everything you need and then some! Hosts Athena Rae & Bo welcomed us, gave us an in person over view of the property (we even took their suggestion & enjoyed a night out at the Turf Club, walking distance from the house *so fun!). We had 6 adults, 21-58 yr/old, plenty of private space for all, community space when needed (large dining tables inside and out) - walking distance to some fun urban dining, coffee shop, bakery, pizza & parks. Loved everything about it. Thank you AR & B - look for my rsvp for next year! - Cindy

Owner's Response: Cynthia and Family,
Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful detailed review. We are also looking forward to seeing you all again.
We appreciate how respectful of our home and property you all were, you left our home so clean it was hard to tell we had a larger group staying.. I can not tell you how much we appreciated your thoughtfulness... Any vacation rental Owner would be lucky to have you..
Looking forward to seeing you again next year a big 5 stars from Bo and I.
See you next year,
Athena & Bo

Location

From the Owner

I have enjoyed living in Golden Hill for over 14 years in this 1907 Craftsman beauty Home; prior to buying in this neighborhood I rented and fell in love with the community spirit that is Golden Hill. Golden Hill is an Urban neighborhood of San Diego, California. It is a neighborhood in the true sense of the word; walkable, friendly, many restaurants, Farmers Market, and great to explore the Historical homes... Very central location, easy access to all. Auto access is direct from freeways 5 and 94, the major through streets and bus routes are Broadway (East and West), and 25th Street and 30th Street (North and South).

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : San Diego International Airport at 3.42 Miles Nearest Barpub : Counterpoint 0.29 Turf Club 2 blocks at 0.09 Miles Nearest Ferry : Coronado Ferry Landing at 4.4 Miles Nearest Golf : Balboa Park Golf Course 1 minute by Car or walk at 0.5 Miles Nearest Train : Trolley Station (Broadway & Park)-Amtrak Train 2.3 at 1 Miles Nearest Motorway : I5, 94, just down the street-leads to 15, 805, 163 at 0.03 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Walking distance to many (see list in details) at 0.01 Miles Nearest Beach : Coronado Beach-Mission Beach 9.23 at 5 Miles Car: recommended

*The Golden Hill neighborhood is adjacent to the landing approach of the San Diego Airport; Airplane arrivals are throwout the day, sometimes busy and sometimes sporadic, night time arrivals are very sporadic. If you're sitting outside on our front porch or back patio you can't help but notice them.

**The interior of our home has been sound proofed as much if not more, as any home can be, with extra insulation, 5/8' drywall, dual pane windows and doors, tight window and door seals, all contributing to sound reduction.

Golden Hill is an Urban neighborhood of San Diego, California. It is located south of Balboa Park, north of Sherman Heights/Highway 94 (M. L. King, Jr. Freeway), and east of Downtown. Golden Hill is one of San Diego's most historic and architecturally eclectic zones, with many pre-1900 homes and apartments. This neighborhood is also in walking distance of Downtown, City College and much of Balboa Park. Auto access is direct from freeways 5 and 94, The major through streets and bus routes are Broadway (East and West), and 25th Street and 30th Street (North and South).

Golden Hill is home to Black Box Recording Studios, The Habitat Recording Studios, Los Reyes Mexican Food, Influx Cafe, Counterpoint, Turf Supper Club, Krakatoa & Pizzeria Luigi (which was featured on the Food Network show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives).

Golden Hill is also host to two outdoor concerts a year, the Golden Hill Block Party and Kate Sessions Fest. The Golden Hill Block Party happens the last Saturday prior to Halloween. In 2006, the Kate Sessions Fest made its debut in Golden Hill Park. Both outdoor concerts are free, all-ages events, organized by local artists and musicians, featuring local bands.
