About Alik Perakh

Hi. My name is Vitali, or Alik for short. I have been 25 years old for 23 years now and was born in Siberia, but also lived in Israel 7 years. I've live in California of last 30+ years. I renovated, furnished, and decorated this unit with my own hands and deigned the landscaping and the other units.

Alik Perakh purchased this studio in 2008

Why Alik Perakh chose San Diego

Golden Hill is the heart of San Diego. Quiet and pleasant, it is nevertheless right in the center and close to everything.

Good for some, may not be for others

  • 3 of 5

Ask questions if you are planning to stay here. The weekend we stayed there, there were a large group of young men staying below us, that were hardcore partiers. Up until early hours of the AM, loud obnoxious music, and absolutely no respect of anyone else. As far as the place itself... the "bed" or small futon, was the most uncomfortable thing I have ever "tried" to sleep on. There was also supposed to be an air mattress, which was not there, when we tried to find it late at night... so I actually had to sleep on the floor. Overall, there was a lack of being prepared for the next guest by the owner. I really liked the owner, but have to be honest with my experience. I would have taken a "bad" hotel over this in an instant.

Owner's Response: I wished they'd asked for assistance instead of 'just "suffer" and then leave a bad review. I would have mad sure in no uncertain terms the partiers stopped their noise immediately or get kicked out . I also keep spare air mattresses stashed on the property in case people steal them or leave them in another unit. So we're actually quite prepared. But can't help if it's not communicated. They never said a thing.

Okay

  • 2 of 5

The place was nice and cozy. It DOES NOT HAVE AC! It was okay for my stay considering it was kinda chilly,but the place is located near the airport and a ton of construction was going on 24/7 so I could barely sleep... The place was fairly clean, the couch was absolutely disgusting!!! Full of weird stains and discolored.

San Diego like at home

  • 5 of 5

The studio is pretty small,but absolutely comfortable for 2 people. The location in Golden Hill is perfect to reach in a few minutes by car Downtown, Old Town, all the beaches and is just behind Balboa Park. This studio is really well naturally illuminated all day long, with a wide window giving you a beautiful view on Downtown and the sunset. The complex consisted in 2 buildings surrounded by a fence, including a very well-kept garden. The owner, Mr. Alik, was so nice with us and also really available. As soon as he saw our wi-fi signal disappeard (jut for a few) he came spontaneously to fix it. Apartament really cleaned, full-equipped kitchen, pay TV (netflix,crakle...on a 40" LCD hdmi TV) and wi-fi included in the price. A private car spot included too just out of the fence in a shaded and fresh place. In our opinion the value for money is excellent

Great experience - would return!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. The sofa is a fold-out bed, and the studio is pretty small, but it was more than sufficient for what we needed: a clean, affordable place to crash. Although the parking spot is small, it was just enough space as well. Would come back!

P.S. The complimentary bottle of wine was very much appreciated.

Good value

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in San Diego and have the following to say about this property.

The good stuff:

-clean, bright, and well maintained

-good value for the cost

-booking process was easy and Alik was great to deal with

-excellent location, we walked downtown and to Balboa park so no real need to rent a car. Public transit is both easy and cheap. Golden Hill is a cool neighborhood,

-be sure to check out the Golden Hill Cafe and Panchitas Bakery just around the corner. There is also a nice Russian restaurant across the street.

The so-so item:

-The only complaint we had was the bed isn't that great. Like many fold-aways it was better when we just used the mattress on the floor.

We would stay there again.

Clean & Convenient Studio Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable studio apartment within walking distance of downtown and public transportation. The property was clean and as advertised; extremely quiet and private. The complimentary wine was a nice touch. Booking with Alik was easy and straight forward. I will definitely be recommending this apartment to friends and family, and will stay here again if I return to San Diego. Perfect home base for our travels around the city!
