Modern and historic buildings stand side-by-side, in the downtown historic Gaslamp District, shops and boutiques, trendy nightclubs, rooftop bars and fine dining restaurants.

I am Native to San Diego.

I enjoy the San Diego life, biking, sailing, and all that San Diego offers. Need San Diego tips? I am happy to help.
Athena-Rae purchased this house in 2004
We choose this property for it's unique Location.
When we purchased this property, we knew that the City would be revitalizing our Urban Neighborhood, building a Mercado right across the street from our property, and the location was part of San Diego's NEWEST Revitalization project.
We are close to the Convention Center, Petco Park, Gaslamp Quarter, Downtown, Seaport Village, Little Italy, Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, and much more.
Our property is across the street from the new Mercado Del Barrio (Great Local Cuisine) . We are in a very unique Urban Neighborhood, with so much going on; Local Artists shows (the Root Factory), Farmers Market, take a walk to the Park, and down the Pier.
We are located by the San Diego Bay, close to the San Diego Convention Center, Centre City, East Village, and the Petco Baseball Ballpark. Adjacent to all forms of transportation and the San Diego Bay, its eastern San Diego location is immediately next to a burgeoning downtown area. We are set in an Urban Neighborhood on the Eastern edge of the Gaslamp Quarter.
Word for word review from Airbnb listing
Athena and Bo were really nice hosts. From the very start, communication was very good, and while we were in San Diego they kept on being very approachable, be it with the number to a good taxi service, or the address to a nice restaurant. The appartment itself was very comfortable and fully equiped with more than we could possibly need. The supermarket in front of the house was also very convenient. We had a lovely time at Casa de Corason, especially loving the deck in the evening, and will certainly come back if we return to San Diego!
Thank you Bo & Athena Rae
Response from Bo & Athena Rae: Delphine, Bo and I are so happy you enjoyed your stay, you were such a great group, and we thank you for respecting our property and our home.. I am glad you enjoyed the balcony view.. Hope you had a little down time to have some fun, as we know you were all very busy at the Convention Center.. It was really great meeting all of you, and we would love to have you back anytime !!! Casa de Corazon gives 5 stars to Delphine and her group, Bo and I recommend them to all owners out there.. We hope to see you again, you are always welcome. Thank you again, until next time, Athena & Bo Casa de Corazon
What a great place to stay. They were so helpful and made sure we understood everything (TV remotes, key codes, everything!) The location was close enough to everything we wanted to do. I was there for a conference and my family was there to play. Athena and Bo were the best. WE highly recommend this upstairs condo. My daughter said you should call the Harry Potter room the Panda room. Thank you so much, if we ever get out to the west coast again, we will be back!
We had excellent stay, Athena & Bo are super friendly, the condo was perfectly prepared - ready to come in and live :)
We stayed in the upstairs condo for a week while in town for a conference and some family fun. We rented based on the great reviews and are glad we did. We were met by Athena who showed us the ins and outs, the condo was the cleanest VRBO we have ever stayed in.
Walking to the convention center was a breeze, from there to the Gaslamp for dinner and a trolley ride back, don't forget to get a compass pass, but Athena will remind you. We used the Uber codes Athena gave us to go to Coronado beach, they have everything you need and more for a day at the beach.
The Mercado across the street and Ryans coffee next door is as good as everyone says. We had a BBQ 3 nights on the condo deck and a nice evening view, there are binoculars if you want to get a closer look too.
Overall, this was the perfect place for all of us and we highly recommend the property for those looking for a great central place in San Diego with a caring friendly owner. Thank you Athena for all your help, we will be back next year.
We found the place a good size and very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and the market across the street was very handy. The location was good for convention goers and for those who take the trolley it was very convenient. For those who like to walk to dinner, etc the location is a little too far from the Gaslamp area and walking after dark was not a good idea. The owners were very friendly. Overall it was a very good place.
My wife, myself and 3 daughters stayed in Casa de Corazon B for 5 nights in December 2014. Not only is the apartment spacious the welcome from Athena was outstanding. She took the time to show us the workings of the entire property to ensure that we where able to make the most of our stay. SD at that time of year was beautiful and although a little more rain had been falling than usual, our stay was enjoyed by all...in fact we wished we had booked a couple of extra nights. We met Bo later in our stay and he also was lovely and provided some good suggestions. Overall, this was a great option - if I had one issue it was the noise at night from the nearby trains and port, however I am a light sleeper and this may not be an problem for most.
We were fortunate enough to find Athena and Bo's place to rent for our recent trip to San Diego. Within a short walking distance (1.1 miles) to the Convention Center (and a short downhill stroll to the trolley), their home is perfectly located to take in many of the sights and attractions of San Diego. There is a nice shopping market across the street (with an attached taqueria that makes very good tacos and burritos), and a wonderful coffee shop next door. The unit itself was wonderfully appointed - comfortable furnishings, a well-stocked kitchen (with coffee, tea, spices, oil and vinegar) with everything needed to cook a good meal, and a deck that has a great view of the city and Petco Park. Exceptionally clean and very welcoming. And Athena was a marvelous host. She personally came over to show us the house, answered all of our questions about the unit, and gave us some good tips about things to do and visit. We would definitely recommend this to others!
