The space

The "Golden Hill Tree House" is a modern 3 story home nestled between two mature trees, an Australian silver oak and Ficus. To access the tree house you walk up an exterior stair case to a private second story deck, a nice place to welcome the day with a morning cup of coffee or relax at sunset with a nice glass of wine under a canopy of string lights. From the deck you enter the house through double french doors. The second story includes a full kitchen, living area, laundry, bathroom and work desk area with high speed ethernet connection perfect for any laptop. The Tree House also has it's own exclusive wi-fi connection great for streaming to any personal device. The open layout incorporates tons of natural light, vaulted ceilings, views and a window niche great for cozying up with a good book or settling in for a comfy afternoon nap. The bathroom boasts a deep soaking tub designed for two and double shower heads as well. The bedroom loft is up another set of stairs on the third level. The bedroom offers a peaceful retreat with 180° views that include downtown, the Coronado strand and on a clear day parts of Mexico, including the Coronado Islands. Off the bedroom is a small nook with hand painted walls depicting ocean life and one of San Diego's historic land marks, the Point Loma Light House on Cabrillo National Monument. In case you forgot to pack some reading material this nook includes a built-in shelf stocked with an abundant variety of books, novels and magazines. It also includes a futon couch, perfect for lounging and reading, that folds down into a small bed, snug, but cozy enough for two additional guests. For your entertainment, there are a variety of board games, a stereo/CD player and a 43" smart TV with local and premium channels HBO, SHOWTIME and CINEMAX and a variety of our favorite DVD movies.

I never had to question any steps along the way, Anthony made sure everything was crystal clear!!! The treehouse was lavish as far as its accomodations go, on top of being clean, stylish and SUPER comfortable. Can’t wait to stay here again!!

By far one of our favorite AirBnB’s so far! Such a well designed home that is perfect in every way. Great location, close to everything, quiet, and even feels a little secluded 3 stories up. Access was simple and all of the instructions we clear. Everything needed was available, from coffee, bagels, and OJ, and even some beer! We either want to live in this house, or have Anthony come to Ohio and design ours for us ;-) Thanks!!

WOW. Great location provided an intimate, sweet home for our time in San Diego. We were sad to leave and are already planning a return visit next year!

This is one of the best Airbnbs I’ve stayed in. Super cool and chic place with lots of sitting corners. Anthony is a great host and had everything prepared for our stay. Conveniently located close to the zoo and downtown. Check out this place and you won’t be disappointed!

We absolutely loved our stay at The Tree House. It is a stunning property, that is beautifully maintained with excellent amenities. It is a lovely area and a perfect location to see all that San Diego has to offer! I cannot recommend this airbnb enough - we will be back next year, no doubt - watching the sunrise from the bedroom each morning was spectacular! Thank you so much to the lovely hosts!

Interaction with guests

We live in the front house with two small children, so with our schedule it can be hard to find time to share a drink or hang out with guests, but we really do enjoy meeting our new visitors and sharing what we can about this wonderful city.

About Anthony

I'm a dad, a husband, and a photographer. I was once an avid rock climber who loved hanging onto the sides of very large boulders, but eventually I traded my shoes in for a hammer when I started building myself a home, AKA The Golden Hill Tree House. During construction I met my soon to be wife, and the bachelor pad I was building for myself soon became the residence for two adults and not long after two children. Luckily I also own the front house, a slightly larger 100 year old bungalo, which I've spent the last year and a half remodeling for our recent move in. Needless to say I'm exhausted! But I'm also happy to share what was a joy for me to build and live in for the past 12 years! I hope you will enjoy it too!
