Situated in the Cuyamaca Mountains of San Diego, the small town of Descanso offers would-be residents amazing lifestyle options. The small town has both modern housing options that may appeal to younger and more urbanite buyers, and ranches for those people looking for a more rustic way of living.
Descanso is one of the least populated areas you can live in San Diego, so if you crave a life of quiet and seclusion, be sure to look into buying a house in this area. Almost two-thirds of residents here own their house, meaning people who live here end up putting roots down. One big reason for this is the fact that Descanso is one of the safest suburbs in San Diego, being sparsely populated, with a relatively tight-knit and active community. The familial vibe and high safety rates are perfect for would-be residents who want to raise a family.
While it is a small community, Descanso residents still have easy access to relevant amenities, schools and restaurants that are a match for any in San Diego. Most community amenities are also walkable, meaning no trips to downtown San Diego just to get what you need.
Speaking of which, Descanso is also near Cleveland National Forest, Lake Morena, and Lake Cuyamaca, all great places for outdoorsy fun.
