Two luxury homes in one combined with a backyard tropical paradise - 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, 2 full kitchens, sleeps 10-14. Located in the highly desirable and affluent neighborhood of Mission Hills, this home is a diamond in the rough!

This home is two homes in one with two master bedrooms and two full kitchens. There is a common door between the two areas of the house that can be locked for privacy.

One section of the home has a huge, upstairs master bedroom with views of the bay and backyard. Below this bedroom is a game room perfect for family gatherings and a sleeping area for children. A full kitchen and huge bathroom round out this side of the home.

The other section of the home has a large, fully equipped kitchen, living room, huge family room with cathedral ceilings and a large nautical themed fireplace. A master bedroom with views of the backyard and master bath with a dual vanity round out the bottom floor. The upstairs of this home has two more bedrooms and another large bathroom with dual sinks and ocean views.

There is a built in intercom system so you can communicate to others wherever they may be in the home.

The Backyard

If you didn't feel like you were in a tropical oasis, you will as soon as you walk into this backyard. The first thing that will catch your eye is the 25 foot waterfall with pond as you look across the yard. You can't help but notice the towering palms and bird of paradise trees that adorn the perimeter of the yard or the gorgeous flagstone around the pond and in the middle of the courtyard. A secluded hot tub is available for relaxing after a day of sightseeing or after making a dinner on the large BBQ.

Talk a walk to the outdoor upstairs area where you can sit and relax in several areas including the sun deck where you can have a drink while watching sunsets over the bay.

During those rare cool nights, enjoy the heat of the fire pit in the middle of the courtyard.

Plenty of seating will ensure that all of your guests are comfortable.

If you are lucky, you may get to meet the two resident hummingbirds that live just outside the family room door.
The entire property, including the backyard, is wired for sound with controls for volume in each area of the house.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Had a wonderful stay in the house, and the lovely neighborhood.
    House was ideally located for trips to San Diego, and surroundings.

    We were a Family of 6 + a baby. And had plenty of space in the house.

  • This beautiful, well-equipped house was the ideal setting for our family gathering for my mother's 90th birthday. It's just a mile from Old Town restaurants and within a short drive of the airport and beaches. The house is located in a nice residential neighborhood. I would not recommend it for more than 8 people, though. We had ten, and both of the sofabeds were problematic. For 8 people, it has everything you need and more.
