About The Owner

Greg and Megan 'Gregan' just got married in Cabo on September 1, 2012! We love San Diego and live in North County. Megan decorates as a hobby and Greg plays beach volleyball. We love to share our favorite places with people who are new to San Diego.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose San Diego

We chose Aloft on Cortez Hill because it is an Oliver McMillan (OM) building. OM buildings use concrete instead of wood construction so the units are quieter and safer. You can immediately tell that OM went the extra mile to create quality and style. The vibe at Aloft is cool and relaxed; ZEN.

What makes this condo unique

The city must have asked the builders to do something for the community in exchange for the property because they built a super cool little park and jungle gym for kids. The project is called 'Tweet Street' and is focused on drawing kids, birds and butterflys. They don't exactly drown out the airplane noise when you are outside but we dig the integration of city, nature, and urban living.

Guestbook comments from the owner

If I could be assured every vacation rental was like this, I wouldn't ever stay in a hotel again. The loft is beautiful and nicely decorated. The photos show how it really is. The owners are nice too! I'm a photographer so I really liked the light in the unit. There are floor to ceiling windows (2 stories tall) with a view of Balboa Park. The freeway is there too, but the windows are well insulated and you can barely hear the cars even at night. Everything is there that you need including a washer/dryer. If you like to read there is lots to choose from. Toni Morrison, Camus, Faulkner, David Sedaris and short stories. I read Freakonomics, a book I have been waiting three years to buy because I'm too cheap to buy the hardback. But read quickly, you can't take the books with you. It is San Diego so I recommend a car although you are pretty close to the Gaslamp District and Hillcrest. I'll definitely stay again.

All Good

  • 5 of 5
I'm not sure what I could write that hasn't already been written. Greg's place is great! The building is quiet, the loft is roomy. Everything you need is provided.

We walked to Petco Park, Gaslamp, Marina, Hillcrest and Balboa Park. It was nice to be able to leave the car in the parking garage and just walk.

Greg is very attentive and couldn't be easier to work with. Two thumbs up!

In San Diego for conference

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were in SD for a conference / quick break from the kids! Greg's directions to the condo were great and no hassles with getting in / finding keys / accessing underground parking. The condo is great - top floor, bright, well appointed. It is near the highway bypass at the bottom of Balboa Park and as with anywhere downtown SD airplanes do fly overhead. That being said the noise never concerned us.
The location was very central to SD including Gaslamp, Little Italy - pretty much everything within 10-15 min walk.
Thanks again Greg

Owner's Response: That's the first response we have had about the quality of the security. We tend to focus on guests having a good time and forget how important safety is to the traveler. Thanks for noticing.

Loft Bliss

  • 5 of 5
We had an awesome time staying in your loft. It was one of the top VRBO experiences we have had. Everything was perfect and way beyond our expectations. It was a great location as well. The view out the windows was unbeatable. Hitting the pool in the evenings (and fitness room) were perfect, especially for our two teens.

Thank you, we look forward to visiting again.

Owner's Response: Excellent! Not everyone who stays at our place makes use of the gym but San Diego is all about fitness, outdoors, and sunshine. We love it when guests take full advantage of everything the loft has to offer!

Beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was gorgeous, super clean, comfy, with an incredible view. The owners were very accommodating and we had everything we needed.
We were in a great area and had a fantastic stay. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend our amazing 5-day stay to explore the city to our friends.
one note: the house is on a pretty big/steep hill, so you need to be traveling with people that can make the hike several times a day down to the bus stops and back up the hill if you don't have a car.
but it was a great vacation! recommend the bus to coronado beach all day!! so fun and beautiful!!

Owner's Response: My wife always loves it when someone compliments the décor so thanks for noticing; "gorgeous" is going to go a long way with her! As for the hill, great suggestion on making sure folks are ready for the walk up and down. Alternatively, there are cabs, Uber, and a shuttle stop at a hotel down the street if you prefer to skip the walk altogether. Thanks again for staying with us.
