City GuideRancho San Diego

"And I went to San Diego, the birthplace of the summer / And watched the ocean dance under the moon" -- From "June on the West Coast" by Bright Eyes

Rancho San Diego, California, is among the census-designated places in - you guessed it -San Diego County. More specifically, it is part of the city of El Cajon. Rancho San Diego's main claim to fame is its excellent location, because it is only about 20 minutes away from Mission Beach, SeaWorld and San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter. So if you're interested in joining its 21,208 residents any time soon, check out the basics on this part of Southern California.

Looking for a Home in Rancho San Diego

This area's vacancy rate is just 3%, which means you'd better get started on your search for rental apartments, condos or houses. Luckily, a little more than a quarter of those vacancies are places for rent, which might help you during your attempt to find an apartment or house here.

Whether you seek a house rental or two-bedroom apartment for rent in Rancho San Diego, you should start your search armed with your checkbook. That's because the incredibly low vacancy rate indicates that there might be some competition for housing here. Putting down a deposit right away is much more productive than physically trying to shoo away people who are also interested in your future home! Oh, and don't forget to bring a couple of pay stubs to prove you have what it takes to pay the rent.

Neighborhoods in Rancho San Diego

Rancho San Diego is pretty small itself, but there are still some main areas you should get to know before you move here. Here are a few examples of the neighborhoods you will discover on your search for a home in this part of El Cajon.

East Rancho San Diego: This part of town sits along California State Route 54, which connects El Cajon to Interstate 5. This means you have fast access to the rest of San Diego when you live here. And because you're near major streets and highways, you'll also find it easy to catch a bus at one of the many bus stops here.

West Rancho San Diego: This area runs along Avocado Boulevard, and it's near several businesses. So this is a great place to settle down if you want to be within walking distance of McDonald's, CVS Pharmacy, Fantastic Sam's, and numerous dentists, doctors and banks. Of course, it's not all urban; you can also get some time with Mother Nature at Deputy Lonnie G. Brewer County Park.

North Rancho San Diego: This has the same types of amenities as the western part of the area, because there are businesses and parks mixed in with housing. In particular, here you will be within a short distance of Damon Lane County Park.

South Rancho San Diego: This is another area that's great to live in if you want to get around town quickly, since SR 54 wraps around it. But if you want to eat or shop, you won't have to go far because this is where Rancho San Diego Towne Center is located. That means you can pretty much walk to places like Da Boyz Pizza and Pasta, Target and the local movie theater.

Living in Rancho San Diego

Well, you already know that popular beaches - including Mission, Ocean and Pacific - are all less than a half hour away from this area. So whether you want to swim, tan or just have the ultimate lazy day shuffling along the beach at a snail's pace in flip flops and a swimsuit, you don't have to go far!

When you need to get in shape for said beach trip, head to McGrath Family YMCA. You can also hit the links at the Singing Hills Golf Course or Cottonwood Golf Club. And of course famous attractions like Coronado Island, Downtown San Diego and the San Diego Zoo are all less than a half hour away. So are you ready to start looking for housing for rent here or what?
