Property Description

Enjoy the feeling of a cozy Zen Retreat on lovely Mt Helix in San Diego county. Mt. Helix is a short 15 minutes from the San Diego downtown, airport, Mission Beach and Pacific Beach.

This is a one bedroom, one bath, with a small kitchen with eating area and full size stainless steel appliances. Central heat and AC. Because the kitchen is small, and only has a small window, therefore can only be used for light cooking (stove top) during the summer heat months. We prefer you not use oven during high heat times, however, there is a toaster oven provided if you need to bake something.

Also note there is a low beam in the kitchen, so must be used with caution.

*Note: Please realize this unit will only occupy two people. (I have been getting a lot of requests for 3 or more people to occupy, there is only one full size bed, and it is not set up for small children. Due to the number of requests, I will not be able to reply to those requests.)

Please see amenity info below. Occupants must be at least 21 years of age, or child with parent. Rental contract is now part of this listing when paying through this site directly. By paying through this site constitutes an agreement to the rental contract terms and will be binding by the state of California. If you reserve through and pay through PayPal, the rental agreement will be emailed and must be signed and sent back within five days. Rental unit is not reserved until both payment and rental agreement are complete.

Beautiful San Diego Getaway!

We loved our stay at Kris' home! She's very communicative and her cozy apt was welcoming and organized. Her place is 20 mins from everywhere. She even had beach gear for us, ready for the beach! Kris knows it's all about the details! We will definitely stay here again if we're ever visiting San Diego again. Thanks!

In and Out Stay

I had to book this location last minute because my airbnb account was hacked. I'm so grateful that Kris allowed me to stay at her quaint cozy apartment styled space. Felt like I had an entire place to myself. Very clean, although I woke up to a caterpillar looking critter in my luggage that I left open on the floor. No biggie. It's also walking dis... Read More

Great stay! Excellent location. The apartment was clean and tastefully furnished.

We would return in future. It was close to many great restaurants and stores. La Mesa itself is a clean, safe community, probably underrated. The host was excellent. Thanks for a great stay!

We stayed here for 5 nights, we had been on a long 3 week vacation,this was our last leg. Kris allowed us to use the washer and dryer, which made things much easier. This location for us was great we have grandchildren in Santee and was a short drive. We had no trouble locating it. It was private, quiet and fit our needs. Thank you for sharing... Read More
