Otay Mesa Real Estate

The development of Otay Mesa dates back to 1957 when the area’s rabbit population outnumbered the residents who numbered 1,000.

Today, over 57% of the Otay Mesa planning area encompasses approximately 17,000 residential units. Buyers looking to move to southern San Diego will discover Otay Mesa real estate fits a broad range of needs and wants.

Great Outdoors

Otay Mesa is in just the right location to get out and experience all the natural beauty and wonders of California. Surrounded by nature, the Otay and Tijuana rivers form the northern and southern borders of the community. The Otay Valley Regional Park links Otay Lakes to San Diego Bay.

Residents love to order tacos from La Casa del Mole Poblano, or burgers from Carl's Jr.

For a fun dine-in experience, Golden House and La Casa del Mole Poblano offer some great spots. Satisfy your sweet tooth cravings at dessert shops such as Teresita's Fruiteria, Churros El Tigre, and Circus Ma'am Ice Cream.
