Sorry, No Section 8 -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*- Please note this is a Suite for rent, located at one end of a long house, in a house-share situation. There is no private entrance to the Suite, but the house is large, with the 2 other healthy adults (in mid 50s to mid 60s) living at the opposite end from the suite. It is located on 5 1/2 acres of land called Serenity Oaks. -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*- Sorry, NO Section 8, NO wheelchair access, and no children under 8 due to lack of fence around an empty pool -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*- INCLUDED: Rent includes free access to a laundry room (open 8 am to 9 pm) with high capacity, state of the art stacked washer and dryer (Please, No washing loads for non-residents). It also includes high speed Cox WiFi internet with Mesh extenders, all utilities except telephone, and over 300 channels of Dish TV, (renter to provide TV). Sorry, no wheelchair access available and there are seven stairs to access the house and another two in the suite going up to the bathroom. We have a pool that will be filled in or replastered within the year (covid -19 delayed our plans). It does not have the required fencing for children, so no applicants with children under 14 can be considered. This would include parents and grandparents with regular visitations. -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*- COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS: We practice social distancing, and good Covid hygiene precautions. SUITE DESCRIPTION: Your airy, sunlit private suite offers a large private full bathroom with hardwood cabinetry, granite countertop, and large 3 door mirrored medicine cabinet, a floor to just shy of ceiling linen cabinet, and designer tile. The studio suite living space features a half vaulted ceiling that ensures a feeling of spaciousness, a kitchenette with hardwood cabinetry, granite countertop, large stainless steel sink, a large window with Plantation shutters, a designer stained glass ceiling fan with dragon fly motif, imported Italian wood-look ceramic tile floors (found throughout the house), and a mirrored closet, . Furnishings, if you desire them, include a lovely wooden dresser, a matching wood night stand, and lovely carved French wooden full bed featuring a bamboo memory foam mattress. Or bring your own furnishings. The kitchenette also comes with dishes, and cookware if you so desire. PARKING: Parking is off road, and there is room for a pickup truck and 1 medium size trailer. 1 vehicle max. and 1 small trailer max. Additional parking for a parking fee. Larger trailers will also require a parking fee. PETS: 1 to 2 small to medium, friendly pets allowed on approval for an additional pet deposit --$250 per pet, as long as they get along with other cats and one small friendly dog. ONE well behaved larger dog is also allowed on approval as long as he/she will get along with our cats and a small friendly dog and will not harass our pygmy goats. Sorry, NO puppies please due to chewing and potty training considerations. LOCATION: Live close to the city, while still enjoying a country atmosphere of Serenity Oaks, a 5 1/2 acre nature-lover's paradise, nestled in a hidden valley, across from Blossom Valley at the Lake Jennings Park Road Exit off of HWY 8 in Eastern El Cajon. Features rapid access to downtown El Cajon, a 15 minute drive to Santee, Tierra Santa, or the College area, 22 min to Mission Valley, and 26 min to downtown San Diego (more during traffic hours). Public transportation (bus) is a mile + hike away with some of it uphill, with the trolley a 15 min drive way, so a car, bike ownership, or a love of long walks is a must. LOOKING FOR: a pet loving single, positive, mature, nonsmoking, clean, moderate, responsible and considerate individual, preferably 45 years or over, with a steady income who appreciates nature, and wants to live here long term (Exceptions in lease lengths made for travel nurses). Please, no drama queens or addicts (that includes alcohol, drugs, gambling, etc). NO heavy drugs of any sort. Mobile Seniors welcome but transportation is a considerable hike from the property, so a car or bicycle is a necessity. QUALIFICATIONS: Sorry, No Section 8 (They have a long qualification process that I do not have the time for) Applicant must be able to submit references and documentation that proves continuing ability to pay the rent at the time of the application. Although this sounds like a wonderful place to visit, which it is, I have an obligation to protect those already living on the property from unnecessary exposure, and so will only show the suite to those who are serious and able to rent by the Sept 1 opening. You would want me to have your best interests at heart if the roles were reversed. MUST Have: A really like animals and have NO pet allergies. We have cats and a friendly dog in the house, as well as a small herd of pygmy goats on the property . We love our wildlife, so if you think critters should be controlled with bullets or poison, this is NOT the place for you. We enjoy life, and celebrate the holidays, but this is not a party property. HOUSEHOLD: You will share the 2000 sq ft drama free house with two other healthy, quiet people. I am an artist, writer, and editor. My significant other is a master electrician. COMMON AREAS: The house, remodeled in 2016, features a large front deck, a mountain view, partially vaulted ceilings, designer ceiling fans, and imported Italian tile floors that people swear are wood, but are so easy to clean, The a formal dining room features a banded mahogany table, comfortable leather and wood chairs, and large rock fireplace with an architectural cherry mantelpiece and matching bookcases, a roomy country kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and a large living room with several seating areas, furnished in tasteful art, antiques, a comfy leather overstuffed couch and love seat, and Persian carpets. GROUNDS AMENITIES: The living room opens up with French doors to a flower filled front deck with a mountain and creek view, which features comfortable seating and provides the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or tea, allows you listen to the water tumble by in our seasonal creek. The deck overlooks a walking bridge, a lower firepit seating area, a stone dining table and designer chairs, and a tile picnic table with matching benches, all in the shade of massive 100 year oak trees. These provide many choice locations to enjoy nature, eat a good meal, enjoy a book, or explore the cyber world with your phone or laptop. When evening comes, watch the sunset set flame to the nearby mountains. The grounds of Serenity Oaks also include an upper, large firepit and an upper patio, which is not available for use right now but will be within the month. It features a BBQ area with a tile and stucco bar, covered with a designer pergola, an octagonal open gazebo offering shade to an elegant stone table dining table and comfortable high end patio dining chairs, a separate seating area, and, in the front, several dining areas, another fire pit and seating area, and a lovely enclosed gazebo. A hot tub will be operational within the next 6 to 9 months, and will eventually be enclosed in another gazebo. Take invigorating private walks in the fresh air or hike half a mile to explore the nature preserve. THE MAGIC: You will love this place. Nestled in its little hidden valley, the house feels warm and welcoming, and the land itself seems magical. With no city lights to extinguish them, the stars stud the night sky. You will love this place. You can hike half a mile to the nature preserve, or stroll around the property. The state's largest avocado orchard guards the back of the property, with its 300+ acres of trees ensuring that no one will ever build there. Fortunately, they only use natural control methods, so toxins are not sprayed nearby. I also keep my property natural and organic. WILDLIFE: The abundant wildlife includes a flock of wild turkeys, a fox, squirrels, rabbits, orioles, bluebirds, mourning doves, and many other lovely birds. We also have a herd of friendly pygmy goats who help us keep the weeds and brush under control. 1 just had 2 babies and another is due any day. PRICE: All this can be yours for a very reasonable $1295 a month, first and last months rent. Looking for long term renters, with a lease of 9 to 12 months or longer. Contact April at 619-396-1390 to learn more.

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments under $1,500 in San Diego, CA

Finding a deal on affordable apartments under $1,500 in San Diego is worth the extra effort. Come ready to pounce on the best deals. Call the property management in advance to ask what paperwork they need and come prepared. Bank statements, pay stubs, identification, and letters of recommendation from an employer or landlord are usually standard. It’s better to come to an apartment tour over-prepared and ready to sign.

You probably won’t find affordable apartments under $1,500 in San Diego in the heart of the action, but you can still land in a neighborhood you love. Look for locations on the outskirts of your dream location or reconsider how much space you really need. A studio apartment may offer plenty of space in your ideal neighborhood at a cheaper price point.

Some property managers will also know about apartments under $1,500 in other buildings they manage, or through word-of-mouth from industry contacts. Ask about any leads if you can’t find the space you need. Touring the first floor for affordable apartments that need some updating can also yield a great deal.
