About Bob McConnaha
Recently retired from law enforcement/military; however, spouse Michael still works. We built the space for family and friends, but have opened our doors for occasional renters. The business started off as a side-job, but since being retirement, a full-time adventure. The rental was built in 2004; however, we constantly update. My husband and I reside in the main, Victorian- era house built in 1908 along with our two small dogs, Lola & Cinnabun.
Bob McConnaha purchased this Studio in 2004
Why Bob McConnaha chose Hillcrest
Our accommodations are based on what we would expect when traveling; comfort, secure, location and affordable. Being in the heart of San Diego's neighborhood, Hillcrest, we are centrally located from downtown, Mission Valley, Balboa Park/Zoo, Sea World and the beaches. Along with a festive night-life and word-class restaurants, the neighborhood hosts numerous marathons like the Rock N Roll marathon and Race for the Cure. As well as, the San Diego Pride Parade. Hillcrest is one of the gems of San Diego where the eclectic architecture merge with an inviting diverse culture and atmosphere. This diversity can be seen in the County's largest Farmer's Market that has is within walking distance.
What makes this Studio unique
The fully equipped studio is designed with an open concept. The full bath and kitchen are designed smartly to maximize storage, natural lighting and function. The sleeping area boasts a king size bed and sliding partitions to give the option of seclusion from the rest of the space. Bamboo flooring, heat-on-demand water heater, smart appliances and solar make the space eco-friendly. The full bath has a spa-like feel with a large corner Jacuzzi tub and shower, granite counter, Italian porcelain tiles and a smooth river rock flooring. Location is everything: We are located in the heart of San Diego's Hillcrest neighborhood. Steps away from exquisite dining, night life and shopping. A one mile jaunt to the world famous San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park which hosts various museums, an Organ Pavilion, period architecture, street performers and local artisans. A short drive to local beaches, harbor excursions and sights, the Padre's Petco Park, Sea Word and SDCCU Stadium (formally Qualcom Stadium). Tijuana MX and La Jolla are about 15 minutes away (opposite directions); while Leggoland, the Wild Animal Park, and the mountains are about 1 hour away.

Central location, high quality lodging with everything one needs.
This is a beautiful loft apartment right in the Hillcrest neighborhood. Entire apartment is outfitted with top quality finishes and is open, with tons of light. It's a perfect spot to relax and enjoy dinner after a long day out. We walked to the farmer's market, restaurants, Balboa Park... it's all in easy reach. The big bathtub and rain shower in the pebble-floored bathroom are spa-like. The owner is accessible, friendly and accommodating. We ordered our groceries, which were delivered before our late night flight arrived. It was wonderful to find them waiting in the kitchen, with a beautiful surprise bouquet of fresh flowers and chocolate as a greeting. Comfortable bed. Everything one needs including a printer and paper shredder are organized into this flowing, comfortable space. Thank you, Bob!
Bob, was awesome very kind. Kids had a blast and loved the Jacuzzi bathtub. We would diffidently stay again.
50th Anniversary for My Parents
Cose this property for my parents 50th anniversary and they absolutely loved it. Bob was very pleasant and very accommodating. The guest house was very clean and serene. Thanks Bob for making my parents trip so special!
A Hillcrest Nest!
Arrived to find a beautiful bouquet of flowers left by Bob and his partner, our hosts. Ideal location for all things Hillcrest, and for our area of interest in and around Balboa Park at the Zoo and other great things in this remarkable open space. Place is beautifully decorated, and nicely laid out for a couple. We had a small child too, and Bob was accurate and clear it wasn’t child-friendly, but we made do! Spa tub, small balcony, inspired kitchen and bath spaces! We really enjoyed our time there. Additionally, Bob is absolutely charming; interesting, funny, kind, helpful, as well as respectful of our privacy. He has twinkling eyes! Thanks!
