We love homes, vacations, people, and customer service. Making people happy in beautiful environments is our 'thing.'

Beth Galdieri purchased this villa in 2012

When we saw this building, with its old world charm and sophistication - we knew that we had to own it, renovate it - and then provide fabulous, beautiful, comfortable and 'cool' accommodations where people could relax, enjoy the Park, the Zoo, the many restaurants- all within the context of a local San

This building is thought to have been owned a century ago by a church nearby and resided in by church members or out of town visitors. It is a beautiful building and stands out as regal yet simple. This combination of simplicity and beauty attracted us.

GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
This was our last vacation before our baby is due. The location was great! So many attractions close by. We didn't have to pay for parking which was important to us. My husband and I will definitely stay here when we come back to San Diego!

PERFECT FOR VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed 5 nights in this wonderful condo. The condo was exactly as described and perfectly cleaned when we arrived. The condo is very close to a ton of activities we did during our stay (zoo, balboa park, museums, old town, coronado island, USS midway, restaurants in north park). It was very nice to have a smart tv, keurig, dishwasher, refrigerator and washer/dryer. The condo is small, but is well designed and had plenty of space for the 2 of us. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone staying in the San Diego area!

SHORT DISTANCE TO BALBOA PARK

Wonderful location, quiet neighborhood, ideal for couple. State-of-the-art appliances to work with and the apartment was immaculate and well appointed. Outdoor seating was well appreciated after long walks in the Zoo and other attractions. Restaurants in the area were easy to find and

LIMITED PARKING ONLY DISAPPOINTMENT

  • 4 of 5
Came in on motorcycle and did not know the area. Husband did not sleep well knowing his motorcycle was on the street. Also has to haul every single bag off the bike upstairs. Would pass next time as I thought I was clear we needed parking other than street parking. Most B&B's make exceptions knowing our belongings are at risk, even offering indoor space. Otherwise great area and no complaints.

Owner's Response: We had a discussion about parking for motorcycle with the guests before they reserved the unit. Unfortunately, we do not have indoor parking, we explained, but we do have several private parking spaces in the back. We also invited them to bring the motorcycle onto the property, if that would make them more comfortable -- either inside the gated backyard or through the front to either side -- anywhere they cared to put it, and they could lock it to fence, arbor or terrace post. Also had offered them a unit on ground floor overlooking the garden -- It would have been easier to keep a watch on the bike and also carry in personal items, but they opted for another unit. Seems we missed the mark on this but I don't know what else we could have done. So sorry! Please note this is a private residential property, not a commercial B&B. Thanks.

PERFECT FIT!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our time in this condo! The location really was perfect for us ... From great neighborhood and park runs in the morning, to a day at the zoo, and easy access to expressways getting us to the beaches and hiking. A highlight was a great meal we had in a restaurant right around the corner!

Although we weren't in the condo for much of the time, we usually did grab a quick bite in the adequately-appointed kitchen, and loved our sunny game of outdoor ping-pong one morning. The bathroom had everything we needed, too!

Our only recommendation or tip for future renters is that this unit is in the back of a small condo unit. We arrived after dark, and it took us a while to find it.

Many thanks for sharing your cozy spot!

OUR LATEST SAN DIEGO ADVENTURE

  • 5 of 5
This is a very fine rental for no more than 2 adults. It's possible to accommodate a third person, be he or she an adult or child by using the pull out/blow up sofa bed, but the sofa bed takes up a lot of the remaining floor space and was inconvenient at times. The unit had obviously been cleaned and prepared with great care. The kitchen table has only 2 chairs so a third person needs to use the sofa. The kitchen, while compact, is first rate if you choose to cook. The bathroom is also first rate and also quite compact. In spite of the "compactness", both the kitchen and bath have been extremely well designed to use the available space. The on site washer and dryer (built into the kitchen) is a big plus if you stay for more than a few days as we did. The location is convenient to North Park stores/eateries (University Ave) and South Park shops/eateries. Both areas are within walking distance (less than a mile). An excellent coffee/breakfast shop (Santos) is 2-3 blocks away on Thorn St. Balboa park is nearby too. The unit has a shared side yard with a gas grill and seating for four and a huge back yard that can also be used to entertain if you have visitors during your stay. The rental agent was very helpful in dealing with Cox TV when we ran into a non working "Smart TV". A ceiling fixture, although it can be dimmed, is the only light in the main living area. We would prefer an additional wall or hanging fixture over the kitchen table to balance the lighting a bit. Overall, we were pleased with the unit and would recommend to others.
