Surrounded by tropical ambiance this cozy and charming bungalow is the perfect place to get away. Located in the heart of the old, unique and beautiful neighborhood of Golden Hill, this is a prime location for a visit to San Diego. Located on a side street there is ample, safe and free parking.

Within just a few blocks you have the choice of a plethora of delicious local eateries. Cook your own steak at the legendary Turf Club, enjoy Humberto’s famous carne asada fries, or have a stone oven pizza while enjoying the outdoor patio of Luigis.

With granite countertops and stainless steal appliances, the kitchen provides all the amnemities needed to cook your own fish tacos! Pots, pans, cooking utensils, dishes are all provided. Sit under the avocado tree, and enjoy the dual BBQ and charcoal grill on the patio/lounge area while relaxing in our comfy lounge chairs. Beware of falling avocados!

NICE LITTLE APARTMENT

  • 4 of 5
Apartment was clean and neat. Kitchen was well equipped. Nice living room and the bed was comfortable. Air conditioning in living room and bedroom. Loved the courtyard. Very tropical and relaxing. Nice television in the living room. Would have been nice to have a TV in the bedroom.

The location was very convenient for driving to all the tourist sites.

Only downside is it is on the flight path for the airplanes and they can be very loud. Having the air conditioning on helps to drown out the noise.

GREAT DOG FRIENDLY PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We just spent 5 nights here in a delightful ground level apartment of about 400sf, and a garage! It is one of the gems of Golden Hill that is being restored to it's former elegance by Kate and Terry. Our unit had all tile flooring, was well furnished, and had all the necessary items to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. It was quiet and just a few blocks from the freeway - no view, but downtown is very close. The pictures on this page are really what you will see when arriving. Tim & Emmye in AridZona

WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Enjoyed the house and courtyard during our recent visit to SanDiego. One reason we chose this place was that it advertised ample parking; we did not find this to be true. We had to park at the market before we were able to go in and find the garage door opener. It was dark and we had difficulty finding the place as well, as we wandered a considerable distance through the walkway. Once we were in we had trouble finding the garage also! Fortunately a neighbor was available both times to help.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately arriving late at night complicates your parking/arrival at the VRBO. During the day or early evening street parking is available to allow one to park,enter the apt. obtain the garage opener, read the instructions as to where the garage is located. Late evening parking is tight since all are home/in bed. We understand late arrival is often necessary. To address the problem we will insure that instructions to the garage are more clearly indicated. We have no control over street parking late in the evening.

CONVENIENT AND COZY

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the vacation rental. It was very clean and everything imaginable was provided. It is also very accessible to the beautiful Balboa Park, downtown, and the freeways. Since it was so close to everything, we were able to go out for a short activity and come back to clean up and head out again. The place was a super good deal and we were even given a cup of quarters to use the on-site washer/dryer! The grounds are beautifully kept and it would have made an exellent place for a bbq gathering with the big grill and large courtyard. Our only complaint is that the bed is too soft.

WONDERFUL GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this location with our two small dogs. We chose this place, because of the close proximity to Balboa Park and it didn't disappoint! We loved being only a few short blocks from the park and our doggies had a wonderful time. The unit is so beautiful and charming! It was super clean, comfortable and charming. We also loved the fact that there was a bakery, a market and a great coffee place near by. Highly recommend.
