I'm moving out to San Diego to be with my husband. He is currently stationed on North Island and we were offered housing in Bayview Hills... near Paradise Hills I believe.

I've heard a huge mix of good and bad and would like to hear more opinions. A lot of the bad comes from the fact the houses are in the hills above National City and from what I hear National City has a high crime rate.

My husband and I come from DC, so I'm just wondering how is it compared to DC if that's possible. Also, if anyone knows any info about Bayview Hills itself... I hear the actual community is nice and seems safe since it's all military, but sure how it's effected from being so close to National City.

Thank you for any information or advice you guys can give us.

no the military housing itself isn"t bad, and as far as the area to me you wont have to fear for your personal safety. I aint gonna lie, there's gangs, drugs, all that in the surrounding areas, but if your not involved in it you dont have much to worry. One thing though, do you have kids? if you do keep an eye on them, cuz its real easy for them to get sucked into all the hood bs, especially when the husbands are out at sea.

Bayview Hills is actually really nice and is sort of self-contained as it has the exchange and it's own stripmall right in the development. The immediately surrounding neighborhood is working-to-middle class, mostly Latino and Filipino. It's not as bad as many people say, but it's not the greatest area in San Diego either.

Bayview Hills are nice. I agree witht he poster above, not the greatest neighborhood but def not the worst. The area itself is really nice. You may want to check out www.cinchosue.com

Not sure either by what you mean...EAST ???

We lived in some nice small apt's in '83. They had just built them. They were 900 sq. feet 2 bdrms/2 baths. I believe now they are condos. If you need more info DM me.

thanks everyone. my husband and I have spent quite a bit of time in the area and feel a lot more comfortable with things and your responses helped give us a good idea as well.

and Sillypups... I have no idea what you're talking about "east". I was asking about a specific community and how safe the area seemed... but thanks for responding as well.

UCSD is not located downtown. It is north around La Jolla and Torrey Pines. So Poway and Rancho Bernardo would actually be closer than Chula Vista and Otay Ranch. Poway has amazing schools just from what I've heard from parents.
