    Charming Casita With A View

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this pretty and spacious Casita. The view of the El Cajon Valley from the many windows and the patio is wonderful. The location is convenient to Freeways and is a cozy home base for a visit to San Diego.

    5/5 Excellent

    The vista truly extrordinary. The kitchen very well appointed. Cozy place, but we were capable of having family from El Cajon over for a very comfortable, fun dinner and evening. Our couple of questions/needs addressed quickly. The grounds surprised us a bit with its convoluted paths and unexpected hilliness right off the casita, but it was not an issue for us. This is truly a one if a kind place. We come to the area to see family every year and would stay here again. We were treated very well and felt very warmly welcomed.

    Stayed 2 nights in Dec 2018

    Relaxing Stay

    House was clean and quiet, with plenty of privacy.

    5/5 Excellent

    Beautiful view, great privacy, and a little old world class

    The casita on this private estate was perfect for us. Away from the traffic, peaceful, and beautiful it was very relaxing to return to the hillside views on Mt Helix after a day of exploring. Nicely appointed with Spanish decor and a very comfortable bed the apartment had everything needed for a wonderful stay. The estate itself is still being restored to its former glory, but what it may lack in spit and polish it makes up for in character.

    5/5 Excellent
