San Diego Dream
San Diego Dream
Built in 1937 by Mr. San Diego himself, C. Arnholdt Smith, this property has become a designated historical landmark in the city of San Diego. This four bedroom, five bathroom 5,500 squarefeet home, in the past, has hosted 2 previous U.S. Presidents and many other political figures during its short history. From almost every room in the house, there is a 180 degree views showcasing the skyline of downtown San Diego to the south, Coronado Island, San Diego Harbor, Point Loma and Sea World to the north.
With an enchanting ambiance created with a designer’s touch, the home emulates true luxury at it’s finest. Ornately patterned wallpapers, rich velvets and leathers, and jaw-dropping light fixtures are scattered throughout the home amongst top of the line electronics and appliances.
For those who love to cook, the kitchen is decked out with a 48" Wolf Range, two large Sub Zero refrigerators with pull out freezer drawers, Wolf Steam Oven, two Bosch dishwashers, two warming drawers, built-in Miele Coffee Maker, walk in pantry, and a Sous Vide machine. Just to top it all off, there is also a separate prep kitchen with a range, refrigerator and sink. The possibilities for entertainment are endless!
The bedrooms of the home do not lack any of the luster and design that flows throughout the rest of the home. Guests taking over the master suite for the week will be living like royalty! Chandeliers float next to the bedsides, velvet is placed throughout, and a grand window provides a gorgeous view. The master bathroom is a dream, with two marble vanities, a claw foot tub situated next to a bay window, and walk in shower. Two of the guest bedrooms are fixed with a Queen and the third a full. All are appointed with more fine, designer décor and a private bathroom.
This house is a paradise for adults and children alike. The property is on over ½ of an acre in the middle of the city. Out back is a large lawn where kids can play soccer, volleyball, and more. Most kids also appreciate the trampoline and tree swings situated in the large backyard.
Regardless of age, all guests will love relaxing in the large heated pool and hot tub. The pool area also houses an outdoor BBQ island, fire pit, and plenty of patio furniture.
For more fun and entertainment, on the bottom level of the house is a large sunken bar, several flat screen TVs, and a bathroom with a sauna.
The house is situated right above Old Town which is within walking distance and is about a 10 to 15 minute drive to every point of interest in San Diego including downtown, Mission and Pacific Beaches, Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, Sea World and La Jolla.

A dream house for sure
It was really nice staying with all my family at this beautiful house. We had a great time and we could enjoy many things San Diego offers. We spent two weeks there and was a memorable vacation for all of us. It was also a pleasure being in touch with Jen the owner, she provided very useful information and responded to all our enquieries or doughts about the house. We would love to stay again sometime at this splendid dream house”
Really a dream house

The terrace with the swimming pool and garden is a beautiful place to enjoy yourself. My family and I loved our stay very much. It really was an unforgetable holliday. Jen the owner was very helpful and so nice i would like to have a chance to meet her personally sometime. ”
Fantastic Home - Great Location
We have just spend a week in this spectacular villa, and we truly enjoyed it. The villa is spacious, perfectly maintained, and in a great location near everything. The owners had left us a nice instruction manual for everything in the house, and it was exactly what we were hoping for. We spend most of our time in and around the pool and BBQ area, which was a perfect fit, as we had 3 younger children in the group. We could not have been any happier and we are looking forward to returning soon again. Thank you for letting us stay in your fantastic home. Anders ”
The home is just as depicted except that the views are far superior than pictures can describe. Jen, the host, was very helpful and receptive so that it felt like home. The house has a very interesting history and is decorated superbly to match the style of the house. If you have any interest in architecture and décor, you will be fascinated by the San Diego Dream. The location could not be better for touring San Diego. It was entertaining to just walk around the interesting neighborhood and enjoy the architecture and landscaping. I highly recommend it for the comfort, style, and location. ”
