SLP/4 3 MIN CONVENTION / CNTR DTWN / GASLMP / LRG STUDIO

San Diego Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom (Sleeps 4)

Surrounded by tropical ambiance this cozy and studio/ one bedroom 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.

Just 4 minutes away you can visit the baby panda’s at the zoo or take in a museum and a walk through beautiful Balboa Park. Head less than 1 mile straight down Broadway into the lively downtown, Gaslamp or Little Italy, extremely convenient for Convention Center visits. If you are too tuckered after a busy day downtown, grab a bus as it drops you off just 1/2 block from the bungalow. Want to see a spectacular view of the San Diego bay? Hop on the ferry and cross the bay to Coronado for a day on the island. Golden Hill has easy access to all the major San Diego highways, making a trip to most San Diego beaches just 10-20 minutes away.

The bungalow is the perfect home away from home to return to after a funfilled day in San Diego. There is a spacious living room with a decorative divider between the living room and bedroom. 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 newly designed patio/lounge area while relaxing in our comfy lounge chairs. Beware of falling avocados! Grab them for some homemade guacamole!

Sit back on the couch and enjoy the flat screen tv with HDTV or hop on the internet with our free WiFi. Did your clothes get sandy at the beach? We have on site laundry with quarters provided.

Each room is decorated with the comforts of home in mind. Sheets, towels and blankets are all provided as well as dish soap, toilet paper and paper towels.

Have pets? We are a pet friendly property and the yard provides a great romp and play area for your dog.

Your safety and peace are our priority and we provide 24hour video survellience for the extra layer of security.

Retired professor. We travel internationally & have two Bichon's. Love to walk on the waterfront and eat the best fresh fish at Mitch's Seafood which is located at the Sport fishing landing. Balboa Park & the Zoo are favorites; Park has the Prado Restaurant which has great happy hour drinks & food; Zoo has Albert's Tree Restaurant which many do not know about; it is breezy & has an African motif.

Terry Portwood and Kate Bedwell purchased this apartment in 1990

Very centrally located; less than one mile to Bay of San Diego, and 10 minutes over the bridge to Coronado with it's own beaches & Historic Hotel. Zoo & Balboa Park are a must see with it's multiple museums, Spanish Village free art studios, & great restaurants in & close to Park. From unit you reach park in 4 minutes. Also, Balboa Park Golf Course is 5 blocks away. Beaches are 20 minutes away on freeways; going East Casinos in 30 minutes.

Original house was built by famous architect, Gill. Has leaded glass windows with coved ceilings; 135 years old. Has been updated with heating/air conditioning. The one bedroom is very large with plenty of windows in all of the rooms. The decor is soothing and makes a comfortable stay for any couple or small family.

Very charming vacation rental. Lots of great places to shop and eat within walking distance. The Gaslamp district was really fun to stroll around. We had a great time!

Nicely redone bottom floor room. Nice kitchen and bath. Beautiful courtyard with deck and outdoor furniture shaded by a nice big tree. Very clean; well equipped kitchen. On street parking was OK, but had to seek out a space at times. 2 Washers & 2 dryers in an adjacent laundry room was a very nice touch (required quarters, which were provided). Overall, we would certainly come back! Thanks!

Cozy get away

  • 4 of 5
The stay here was great. Nice, small place but very comfortable. Very nice neighborhood! We went for nightly walks and felt safe. We took our two small and they seemed to enjoy it as well :) They were able to roam around the back patio without me worrying that they would escape. The location of the home was away from the downtown but close enough to every major attraction. The only think I would suggest to owners is to have more pans. I only found one, and it was hard for me to make breakfast. Another thing (and its not owners fault) is the lack of parking. If you get back to the house too late, it's hard to find a parking spot near the house. We never had to park far as we kept waiting for people to leave and we would grab the parking spot! Other than that, everything was great. We will definitely be staying at one of their homes on our next trip! And taking the rest of our family so they can join us in one of their other homes :)

Owner's Response: Thank you Maria! Yes late at night street parking can be a bit of a game, but a spot always seems to appear. We work hard to create a cozy and comfortable environment and we are glad you enjoyed your time with us. We look forward to hearing from you again and you are more than welcome to bring your family.

Great Location

  • 2 of 5
We loved the location of this place. It was so close to everything we wanted to do with our family. San Diego was an excellent place for the family vacation. This is a basement unit, with a steep walkway down. The unit has all tile floor and various steps, including one down to the kitchen and one up to the closet. With our 18 month old the place wasn't the most kid-friendly. The floors weren't very clean. The place was well equipped with towels, blankets, and kitchen utensils however. The patio was nice.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your input. The tile floors have two shades of brown, making them look like they are not clean when in fact housekeeping has a great record of guests commenting on it's cleanliness. The step to the kitchen is short, 7 inches. While the closet step is taller it is not a good place to allow children to enter since it is both a closet and houses the ironing board etc. Various families with children have had no problem with the child friendly issue raised in this review. A consistent theme in the review of this and all our units is how clean they are.

Stay was great!

  • 5 of 5
This place worked well for my girlfriend, my dogs, and I. It's a small place with an attached kitchen, but it had everything we needed. We didn't use the kitchen or the grill on the outside patio, but I'm sure it would have been used if we had a longer stay. The location is great, right next to the I-5 freeway. Everything was a close drive, not more than 15 minutes to arrive at your desired location. I would stay again if the space is available.
