As walk through the front door of this gorgeous Spanish Revival home, you’ll be greeted with a warm and welcoming space combining classic comforts with modern amenities. The living room is an ideal place to relax and unwind with a good book; to catch up on your favorite programs with a premium satellite channel lineup, or to play games and enjoy family time together. For those rare, chilly winter nights, there is a warming fireplace to complete the cozy setting. Our summer guests will appreciate the brand new Air Conditioning installed March 2017!

A well-appointed and fully stocked kitchen makes it a breeze to prepare a light snack at the breakfast bar, or to serve a full course holiday meal in the formal dining room set with handcrafted Luna Garcia pottery dinnerware.

The master suite boasts an over-sized walk-in closet, large soaking tub , separate shower, and a California king-size bed (72" W x 84" L). The home is a great choice for families -- the guest bedroom is furnished with a queen-size bed (60" W x 80" L) and adjoins the second bathroom. Casa Paloma comfortably sleeps 4 guests between the two bedrooms, a gorgeous Murphy bed with a queen Serta "Perfect Night" plush mattress in the living room can accommodate two additional guests. Please let us know if you require additional furniture for your baby or infant. We can provide a baby crib, a youth sized foam mattress and a highchair for a one time $25 setup fee. The house also includes an inside laundry room and all of the kitchen, bed & bath amenities and supplies you would expect in your own home.

The jewel of Casa Paloma is the lush courtyard edged with palms and tropical plants that invites you to sit and savor your morning coffee, pause for a glimpse the hummingbirds, or simply enjoy San Diego’s great weather. In the evenings, unwind with a glass of wine outside on the comfortable couch with the lanterns aglow casting a romantic light off the soothing fountain.

The moment you enter the front gate, you’ll feel right at home in this private and serene oasis.

Just outstanding! Paula & Keith spared nothing.
Just outstanding! Paula & Keith spared nothing. Their home is very thoughtfully appointed and ultra clean. The layout of their home is beautiful...not to be outdone by the patio garden complete with water fountain. Easy central location to most of what San Diego has to offer! Quiet peaceful neighborhood with ample parking. Packing our bags was tough to do! Already looking forward to our next stay!

The owners have thought of everything you could want for a stay in California.
We would really recommend Casa Paloma for a stay in San Diego. Mission Hills is a relaxed neighborhood filled with good restaurants, shops and cafes. The area is also central for accessing other parts of the city. The property itself is stylish, homely and comfortable. We particularly loved the courtyard area and the hummingbirds!

This was without a doubt the most pleasant experience Ive had with AirBnb. It was adorable, clean, comfortable, and warm. We were accommodated with an early check in even though she didnt have to. The responses were prompt and helpful. We spent a ton of time outside relaxing and enjoying this place. I honestly cant say enough about it. Thanks!

5 Star Review from Happy Guest! Wonderful place to stay!
We stayed at Casa Paloma while attending a conference in San Diego. It was a wonderful location, close to the conference center but far enough out of the busy area of town. The owners were extremely accommodating. We were traveling with 2 small children and they made sure we had everything we needed for the kids to be comfortable, all the way down to soft wash clothes and towels. The house was clean, spacious, updated, and had everything you could ask for. We also did some sight seeing while we were in town and it was close to beaches, the zoo, museums, etc. I would stay at Casa Paloma again in a heart beat.

Delightful stay in charming house on great street. Service is excellent and house is even better than pictures,
This is a charming and very well equipped house on a very nice street. Excellent location for getting anywhere in the San Diego area. The house has great outdoor space and is immaculate. A great feature is that it is a flat walk to Mission Hills shops and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.

"We loved our week in this charming home! The central location is fantastic! It allows quick access to many shops, restaurants and attractions, but still feels quiet and secluded. The courtyard is a lovely oasis for meals or curling up with a book. The master bed was a little too firm for our taste, but perhaps that's personnel. Highly recommended!"

The neighborhood is filled with great bars and restaurants, but the street itself is quiet. 2. The home has a lot of great indoor and outdoor space for lounging and hanging out.

We stayed a week in the amazing house that contains anything you could imagine needing and wanting. Close to everything 5 to 15 minutes drive to just about anywhere in San Diego but in a quiet little side street away from the busy city. Gated front entrance and a amazing back patio with a water fountain and even your own hummingbird family! The kitchen had every gadget you could think of they even have a full spice rack! Need to do laundry, dishes, need an extension cord etc ..they have all the supplies right there for you! Cable has every possible channel you can imagine. Living room even had a basket with extra blankets if needed while relaxing. That all topped with the fabulous communication .. the house manual with everything you need to know about the house and recommendations for local things to see and do! I would say everything was PERFECT!! Would not hesitate to recommend and will definitely be back!! Thanks for letting us borrow your little piece of heaven for the week !!!

"Our family stayed at Casa Paloma for four wonderful nights. The house is spotless-kudos to cleaning staff. Kitchen had every gadget and appliance needed. Host even supplied a tray of snack bags-enjoyed by all. The decor is tasteful, and matches the homes environment perfectly. All upgrades-and there are many-flow seamlessly thru the house. Loved the timed candles in the living room and dining room-came home at night to lighted rooms. Plenty of bedding, blankets, towels, paper towels, cloth napkins, placemats, kitchen towels, brand new sponge, garbage bags-there was nothing we looked for that was not provided. Loved the outdoor patio, enjoyed watching the hummingbirds in the fountain, and the patio furniture was in perfect condition and very comfortable."

This home was just perfect!!!! Guests stayed June 10-14, 2017
Casa Paloma was so charming and cozy, yet fully updated, and met our family's needs perfectly. The location was great, too. It is very nicely "tucked away" in a nice neighborhood with parking right in front (quite the amenity considering many places we visited!), but never took longer than about 20-30 minutes in any direction to see all the sights we wanted, and really check out San Diego and the surrounding area. We were so grateful to have everything we needed to just relax and enjoy ourselves. The kitchen is fully stocked, so prepping and cooking all our breakfasts before heading out each day was easy. All we had to do was bring the food, which was also a cinch, because there's a grocery store right up the road! We went to several beaches, and it was really convenient to have all the beach gear there for us to use! Also, having a washer & dryer in the home (with laundry soap & softener supplied for us!) ended up coming in quite handy a couple of times. Truly, this place has that home-away-from-home feel, and we can't wait to come visit again soon! -5-stars
