About Andrea Rubalcaba on behalf of Charles Patton

We have found so much pleasure and meaning in nurturing a community of 22 incredible, unique and comforting neighbors. We have completely changed the way the building looks, feels and even functions! We are so proud of the camaraderie our residents have and the compassion they feel for each other. Every guest we have hosted (whether it be for days or years), has always been so happy with their experience among the charming gardens, cozy grounds, warm people and quality management of our home.

Andrea Rubalcaba on behalf of Charles Patton purchased this studio in 2000

Why Andrea Rubalcaba on behalf of Charles Patton chose North Park

When you're here, you completely forget about the outside world. Whether it's mimosas and Yahtzee on a sunny morning or hot cocoas around a bon-fire on a cool evening, our residents (and YOU) are always enjoying the community. This is the kind of place where you can be inside or out..they're both equally beautiful, tranquil and comforting. Not to mention you're only a moments drive from all of San Diego's enchanted offerings.

What makes this studio unique

Courtyard Pool, Small-Town Feel, Homey Neighbors, Fire Pits, Lounge Areas outdoors, Gardens, Quiet Tranquil Courtyard with Relaxing 5ft Windchime.

Excellent location and comfortable room

  • 4 of 5

We visited San Diego for a girls' week this March. This condo was the perfect location for us, just a few blocks from hip North Park/Hillcrest/Adams Ave area, and right off the 805 for quick freeway access. The interior is lovely as well--very well-decorated, clean, and updated nicely. Since we had the studio, it was perfect for 2 people, but we'd probably opt for one of the bigger rooms of we returned with another friend or two.

Definitely our first choice when we visit San Diego in the future!!

Great Value

  • 4 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here the weekend of 3/13/15 - 3/15/15. I was very happy with the studio, especially for the cost! It was definitely comparable to staying in a nice hotel but for half the price.

PROS: Beautifully remodeled and decorated. The bathroom was really clean which I really appreciated. Satellite/cable tv was nice to be able to put something on for the short moments we just relaxed on the couch. Having wifi access was great - we didnt have to go over our normal data usage while we looked up times, prices and locations of things to do! Having 2 beach cruisers come with the the rental was awesome! Onsite washer and drier would have been very useful if we stayed longer.

CONS: The pool is not very big at all, but we planned to be at the beach anyways. I'm sure it would be fine for a quick refresher. A bit more noise from neighbors (people walking above us or kids screaming and playing outside) than I would have liked but nothing terribly bothersome, and we were only there in and out through the day. No designated parking, but it was not difficult for us to find spots across the street. Not in the best neighborhood, but everything was about a 15 min cab ride away. (No safety issues, it was a nice, gated, apartment community. ) Also, the university avenue shops are quite a ways down from the studio, just FYI.

TIPS: If you want to utilize the 2 beach cruisers at say the beach or balboa park, bring a car that will fit them! We ended up renting two cruisers at BP because it was not in riding distance (for us anyway, it was a 15 min drive). Use their beach chairs. Two low rise chairs come with the room as well as beach towels. We kept forgetting them but that was also a nice addition. I read in other reviews that the portable AC unite was iffy, especially in higher temps. It was mid to high 80's when we stayed and it worked just fine for us, cooling the room as low as 76. If it doesn't work for you, check the back and make sure everything is plugged in and ventilated.

SUGGESTIONS: A full length mirror in the room would have been very useful while getting ready! One could be placed on the inside of the right wardrobe door perhaps? An upgrade to a larger queen size bed would be nice! I'm only 5' and still felt strange hitting the end of the bed. I understand width would be an issue with the space in the room but maybe at least a longer bed.

Damaro was very nice to work with, he had us sign waivers for the beach cruisers and showe

Sightseeing

  • 3 of 5

Studio was nice and clean with updated appliances. Downsides in my opinion were the area. Do some research before booking it was fine for us but may not be for everyone. Its listed as North Park but its on the outer edge and not in safe walking distance to University Avenue shops. The main drawback was not having a parking spot we often had to park a block or more away and walk back at night. Also as with any apartment you will hear every footstep and movement from people above it because a nuisince at times. We made it work but i would probably try something different next time.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was great. The location of the studio is perfect, close to freeways and things to do. Much better than staying in a hotel. Although there was not a parking space with the room, we never had a problem finding somewhere to park. Gated community, super comfortable bed, amazing kitchen with gas stove, beautifully decorated. I can't say enough good things!! I would definitely stay here again

Excellent value

  • 4 of 5

The property was exactly as described, clean, well equipped, lovely courtyard & pool, close to the zoo, Balbao Park and many downtown attractions. My wife and I particularly enjoyed using the bar-b-que and dining beside the pool. Our only complaint was that the free standing air conditioning unit was noisy and had difficulty coping with the 90+ degree temperatures we experienced during our stay.

Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My teen daughter and I stayed here for 10 nights. It was absolutely perfect. I had an assigned parking spot in front of building. Apartment complex is gated and secure. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal or barbecue on the huge new outdoor gas grill which is conveniently located next to pool. Andrea also provided us with 2 beach chairs. Pool and laundry room are right next to room.....very convenient. Neighbors are super friendly and the apartment manager hosted a pool/barbecue party while we were there for all the residents including vacationers. Unit was clean and nicely decorated. Bed was comfortable to sleep in after a long day out sightseeing. Walgreen, CVS, Fresh and Easy, Vons grocery store, restaurants and highway close by. George is a pleasure to work with and he truly makes sure that his vacationers are comfortable. Thanks George and Andrea.
