1 story house in San Diego, CA, USA

Greetings and welcome to my home. 
NEW!  Video I made in Balboa Park
Video from the San Diego tourist board

 House:  Ten minutes from the beach and five minutes to downtown San Diego restaruants.  This two bedroom home was built in 1922.  The archetectural style is Craftsman.  The house is 1100 square feet (102.2 square meters) with a large back yard and two well kept organic vegetable gardens that grow all kinds of fruit vegetables and herbs year-round.  The neighbors are friendly and helpful.  One neighbor will be informed of your arrival and happy to assist you.  There are two (2) beds.  One standard queen in the master bedroom and one full size guest bed in the office.
San Diego attractions:
Close by:  In my neighborhood you can walk in less than five minutes to very good and trendy restaurants like Urban Solace (four blocks), and Mosaic Wine Bar (2 blocks) True North Tavern (five blocks)  and The Linkery and for breakfast you need only walk one block to Cardamom bakery which opens early for breakfast every day.  The new Birch Northpark Theateris six blocks away.  Many wonderful performances are given at this brand new performing arts center.
Downtown:  (five minutes by car or taxi)  Many night clubs and restaurants are ten minutes by car or taxi.  My favorite is the brand new Andaz Rooftop Nightclub and Winebar (used to be the Ivy Hotel).  
Beaches:  My home is also ten minutes to Coronado Island beaches.  The Victorian Hotel Del Coronado is where Marylin Monroe was filmed in the movie Some Like It Hot.  History of Coronado.  The Coronado beaches are considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.  Fifteen minutes by car are the citeies of Del Mar, Cardiff By The Sea,  La Jolla Cove video, and La Jolla Shores (dive video) with many beautiful beaches.  Every beach city has daytime activities, night clubs and ocean view restaurants. 
Culture:  For those who would rather stay dry and closer to the ground culture does indeed exist in Southern California!  We have an The San Diego Opera, San Diego Symphony and the famous Old Globe Theater that produces many Broadway and off Broadway shows.  We have art and culture one mile away in beautiful Balboa Park where the San Diego Zoo is also located.  Northpark hosts the North Park Festival of the Arts in May 2010.  My home is the ideal location in San Diego
For the young at heart:  An absolute must do!  You can safely enjoy hang-gliding and para-sailing at the Torrey Pines Glider Port (with friendly expert instructiors- video).   Wave House Club has indoor surfing!  The beaches provide surfing at its best can be found at many San Diego beaches.  You surfers already know how great the waves are in San Diego.  Don't forget  Six Flags Magic Mountain. 
My first exchange was with a surfing couple and their little boy from Paris! 
La Jolla:  La Jolla is a small beach town 15 minutes up the coast by car.  You can enjoy the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary  Art in the afternoon then walk from the museum over to the Childres Pool to see native seals and their pups sleeping in the beach on your way to dinner at the famous Georges On The Cove restaurant.  After dinner there are between ten and twenty art galleries to enjoy as you walk back to your car.
House Features:  
Outdoor watering is automatic and a yard maintenance company comes every two weeks. There is extremely fast high speed Wireless Internet and full Cable TV with DVR (Digital Video Recorder) with surround sound, a BOSE stereo for your iPod or MP3 player.  There is a working fireplace in the living room, air conditioning and central heat.   The back yard has a large 450 gallon hot tub/spa with 35 jets that runs year round at 102 degrees F. / 38.89 C.   The house has filtered drinking water (reverse osmosis system) large refrigerator with ice dispenser and dish washer, full laundry and cordless telephones.  A computer is provided for your personal use.  An instruction book for the television, computer and household features in your language will be created for your comfort and peace of mind.
This house is comfortable relaxing and very close to the most interesting neighborhoods in San Diego.  
"WONDERLAND" The YouTube channel features local San Diego neighborhoods and little known San Diego activities that few local people know about.   You can preview special local destinations and hidden San Diego treasures before your arrival!   Why go to Sea World when you can go to a hidden beach like Windansea beach for the day?
