San Diego, California
Casita Encanto is a charming one bedroom cottage near the Gaslamp District in San Diego. We are located on 1/2 acre in an ethnically diverse, middle class neighborhood with unique zoning, which has kept the population low and the surrounding neighborhood country-like. We are close to the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park, Petco Park, the Convention Center, the Gaslamp District, Seaport Village, Old Town, Pt. Loma, Coronado and many other local tourist spots. We are kid friendly with lots of fun places to hang out and play, in a safe and completely fenced in yard. We provide beach towels and chairs, boogie boards and beach cooler. We also have an outside shower to hose off sandy kids after a day at the beach.

We agree with most of the comments already mentioned about this cottage. We'd like to provide some factual clarification on a few things so future renters have a good mental picture of what they are renting. The cottage is connected to the main house where the proprietors live. It is in the rear of the property where the beautiful gardens...

We very much enjoyed staying here for a week in early March. All the other comments were accurate about this place. I would like to add these extra comments: -the extra amenities that Deborah has included made it so nice, like free wifi, we weren't expecting that. - I packed a hair dryer, but they had one there. They also...

About the neighborhood
Casita Encanto is located approximately 7 miles east of downtown San Diego in a unique residential neighborhood that is zoned agricultural, with a minimum lot size of 1/2 acre. There are no apartment buildings or sidewalks here, but you can find the occasional rooster or chicken crossing the road. If you are looking for something that is peaceful and quiet but within a few minutes drive of all the action, then Casita Encanto is the place for you. We are just a few minutes from Coronado Island, Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo, Petco Park, the Convention Center, Seaport Village, Little Italy and Old Town.
