The space

Mike's Place is an artistic retreat right in the middle of the city. It sits between a California Bungalow from 1910 and an art studio.
Located in a turn-of-the-century neighborhood surrounded by canyons and less than a block from the pedestrian "Poetry Bridge" that connects to all of Hillcrest. Within a five minute walk are restaurants, theaters, coffee shops, gyms, and bookstores. The San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park can be reached on foot or by bus. The beaches and the airport are a ten minute drive. Relish the seclusion and revel in the night-life and culture of central San Diego.

The cottage features full amenities that include:

Tempurpedic™ queen-size bed.
Wi-Fi or High Speed Computer Ethernet connection.
HDTV with Premium Channel Cable, air conditioning, refrigerator, microwave, wet bar, coffee maker, toaster, and iron.
Window seat for sitting, reading or lounging.
Off street-parking, private entrance and patio connecting to a courtyard and Japanese garden.
Spacious bathroom with 12 foot high tiled shower.
French doors open to a private sitting area for cozy talks and an evening breeze.
All furnishings and appointments are the utmost quality.

Every effort has been taken to create a special space for people to enjoy and remember.

What a gorgeous and quiet cottage, within walking distance of restaurants or food shopping, and whatever else you need. If ever in San Diego again, would make this place my first choice. Thank you Mike!

Mike User ProfileMike is a superhost.

I am a painter and an art instructor and have worked in the field for thirty years. I have lived in this residence for 26 years and have applied all of my skills and interest to restoring this house to its historic roots.  I was delighted when my zero-scape garden won the neighborhood award and was mentioned in a "Sunset Magazine" walking tour of the area.  I spend most of my time painting in the art studio and therefore, enjoys the opportunity to meet people from other places.
