    Hello Just found out...San Diego here we come!

    Advertisements
    My husband came home yesterday with news that we are soon to be headed to San Diego. I was shocked! We just move to Pensacola a little over a year ago. Prior to that we were stationed in Arizona for 3 years. I can't tell you how thrilled I am. My DH will be in school out there for one year, after that I am sure he will then be assigned to a ship. I am not your typical Navy wife. I grew up an Army brat, so all I know is the military. As a child, I lived on base, but since being with DH (almost 15 years now), we have never lived on base. After looking at many post, it seems like military housing is the way to go in SD. We have 3 girls, all 10 and under, and 2 dogs, one German Shepherd and a maltese.
    When we moved to Pensacola, we made the mistake of secluding ourselves. I sure don't want that mistake again, esp. since hubby might be busy with school all the time.
    My question would be would you consider Murphy Canyon or Admiral Hartman? By the way DH is an E-7.

    Oh and Hi!

    YAY on San Diego orders!!!

    Out of the 2 housing area's you've listed i'd pick Admiral Hartman. Its a single family home. But the only thing is no AC due to the "sea breeze" you get. We live in Chesterton housing, which is basically a mirror image of AH but we have ac. I have a friend that lives in Murphy Canyon and i hate it over there. If I'm going to be giving up all my BAH for pet housing i want a single family home and not have to share walls. Our area is quiet and nice. I LOVE it over here.

    Hello! DH and i were just stationed in SD this summer. we started out in an apartment here but decided after looking into Lincoln Military housing that we wanted to do that instead. We moved into Murphy Canyon- Orleck Heights. I love it. it is a town house but i dont even notice it. We have friends that live in Chesterton and it is really nice. the house is spacious but it is also a town home. Orleck heights is great bc i feel like there are more ammenities. we have a skate park, playground, tennis court, basketball, street hockey and volleyball courts. there is a GREAT little gym at the office and a couple of baseball fields. the NEX is less than a mile from any house in Murphy Canyon. its great! and all new appliances. PM if you have questions. hope you love San Diego!

    I'm not familiar with those housing areas, but it looked like someone else answered. I love it here in San Diego. Good luck with your move!

    Admiral Hartman has single family homes, I am not sure what E7 housing in Murphy Canyon is like, they may be single, too... not sure. Also Admiral Hartman is closer to the coast, near Mission Bay, Murphy Canyon is near Mission Valley and more centrally located to everything.

    Dh is an E7, too but we prefer to live off base. We live down in Chula Vista, in the southbay of SD.
