About John Reardon

I grew up in Northampton Massachusetts, a town with countless beautiful old homes and lots of woods. I spent countless days in my youth building tree forts never knowing that those 2 dynamics would intersect at this point. Upon arriving in San Diego with an interest in building and purchasing real estate, I became immediately interested in the largely neglected Victorian buildings in this area of town. This property became a labor of love for me many years ago and I hope that legacy will be carried forward by my 3 sons. My wife if Japanese, so our family often divides our time between 2 very different worlds, both with much to offer.

John Reardon purchased this apartment in 1991

Why John Reardon chose San Diego

It is our hope that our guests will appreciate the attention to detail and uniqueness of design that has been incorporated into every aspect of this property.

What makes this apartment unique

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for 4 nights in March with my husband and toddler. Very nice and clean apartment. Very good service from John, we received a welcome letter explaining everything about the apartment prior to our arrival and John was very quick to answer our remaining questions by email. Easy access to the highway, short drive to Gazlamp district, beaches and Balboa park. Would go again and recommend to my friends!

Upscale 2 room apartment

  • 5 of 5

This place exceeded our expectations! It is newly renovated, tastefully decorated, immaculately clean, and includes lots of nice extras.

My husband and I along with our two teenagers stayed here for 3 nights while vacationing in San Diego. The unit is perfect for a couple, a little tight with 2 teenagers along, but since we don't spend a lot of time in the room when we are on vacation it was perfect for us as well. Location was great--easy on and off the highway, 15 min drive to the beach, short drive (or longish walk) to the Gaslamp district, and there was plenty of parking right out front. It was quiet and private. The main bed was super comfortable. The pull-out couch bed on the other hand was what you'd expect. It was nice to have use of the patio and gas grill and laundry facility. A bonus for us was the boogie board, beach chairs and beach towels at the house for our use. The teenagers appreciated the Wifi and the Netflix!

John provided all the details we needed in a welcome letter a week ahead of time and responded quickly to a few follow-up emails. He checked in with us during our stay to see if there was anything else we needed. John was a thoughtful host.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this unit to anyone visiting the San Diego area.

Excellent property well maintained and immaculate

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in unit #1 for three nights. We found the unit to be just the right size for two. The kitchen had high quality pots/pans/utensils and everything you need to make anything you want. The entire unit was immaculately clean and everything worked. It was also a pleasure to receive detailed instructions about the unit from John.

The location was quiet and within reasonable distance to most of places that tourists would want to visit. There was no trouble finding street parking.

We were delighted with our stay, and would highly recommend this unit to a couple interested in visiting San Diego and wish to cook some of their meals and have a comfortable and quiet place to stay.

All we needed...lovely historic home.

  • 4 of 5

Our apartment on the back was perfect for us. All the amenities were as promised. The location was a driving distance to most restaurants and shopping which is straight up Market St. and easy to get around. The common space did get a little noisy one night but when asked, the other guests kept it down. San Diego is a beautiful City we loved touring Balboa Park, Little Italy, Olde Town and especially Coronado. We would recommend this home to friends.

We loved our sweet one bedroom apartment in the city. John, the owner, has thought of everything to make one's stay comfortable and complete. The apartment is carefully equipped, nicely decorated, clean and extremely efficient. Perfect location to see all there is to see in San Diego. We will definitely plan a return visit. Our thanks to John for his thoughtfulness and consideration.
