About J.D.

I work as Vice President of Sales at a Fortune 500 company. I have been successful because I believe the customer comes first. I run my rentals with the highest level of professionalism. This means all the little things are done. The home is cleaned, stocked, and maintained to the highest standards. My philosophy and standards are reflected in the reviews.

J.D. purchased this house in 2009

Why J.D. chose San Diego

I bought in this location because I love downtown San Diego. This home was selected because it is one of the few single family homes downtown. That meant I could paint it bright green and rent it weekly without the worry of a home owner's association. The interesting style of these homes won numerous awards for the builder. It features tilt up concrete construction. I also liked the fact that the garage is attached and I do not have to go through a public elevator to get into the unit.

What makes this house unique

Attached garage single family home not a condo, there is no home association to worry about. Every condo association in downtown prohibits vacation rentals of less 30 days, people do it anyway but my tenants do not have that worry.

Loved the space!

  • 4 of 5

The place is wonderful, beautiful decorations, comfortable beds and location is close to everything! I would however suggest adding another lock to the door on the street. Two nights we had someone try to enter the house. The door is loose so it's jarring to hear that rattle in the middle of the night. The amenities are slime compared to other properties-i.e. they only supplied coffee in the kitchen and some spices. Overall this place was a delight!!

Owner's Response: I am glad you thought the place was a delight. To address your concerns. There is both the main digital lock and a deadbolt lock on the front door. I am unclear what benefit adding a third lock would provide. I did check the front door and it does not appear to be loose in anyway. I would have been happy to address this concern during your stay had you brought it to my attention. I am disappointed you felt the amenities are slim. Most of the tenants have felt the opposite. I supply toilet paper, paper towels, make-up wipes, shampoo, soap(bath and hand), conditioner, salt/pepper, sponges, cleaning supplies, garbage bags, dishwasher detergent, dish soap(for hand-washing dishes), laundry detergent, bleach, fabric softener, coffee, creamer, sugar, and filters. In addition the home is always well-stocked with towels and linens. Thank you again for the renting the home and taking the time to write a review.

Great place to stay in downtown San Diego. Home is clean and well stocked with everything you need. Owner (JD) receptive and responsive. Walking distance to Petco Park, Gaslamp and most everything. Highly recommended!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The property is in the perfect location and is very close to many of the local attractions. Ten minutes from Coronado and the Zoo, as well as, La Jolla. The home itself is beautiful and very well appointed. The owners had a detailed manual for any questions. It was super super clean which is a must for me when renting for the week. You can easily walk to the Gas Lamp District which is awesome if you like to have a few drinks. The area around the home is nice as well with a supermarket, drug store etc close by. I would highly recommend staying here. Finally, I got a text from the owner just hours after we checked out stating my deposit had already been refunded. Not having to add something to follow-up on to my to-do list was awesome.

Didn't want to leave . . .

  • 5 of 5

AMAZING! We spent 10 days at the property . . . it felt like home. Loved the in-the-city location, the super-easy access to freeways (down the block, north or east, and you're there). Walking distance to markets and restaurants. Property owner was very responsive via text--checking in to make sure things were okay and answering any questions within minutes. We came to San Diego with our son's baseball team, and soon discovered we were one of the few families that had a condo with air conditioning (lucky us!). As San Diego was experiencing a mini-heat wave, the little extra cooling was nice after a day in the sun. There are quiet/efficient ceiling fans in the bedrooms also. Pretty much everything you need is in this super-clean, super classy, "industrial-decorated" condo. My teenaged son loved having his own room & TV downstairs, and we loved the master suite with the fancy shower and outdoor balcony (after grilling steaks, I have serious grill-envy) . Uber drivers are 1-3 minutes away, and you are in easy walking distance to Petco & Gaslamp Quarter. WIFI worked flawlessly, as did the washer/dryer and the printer to grab those last minute boarding passes. Other reviewers pointed out the city noise and the homeless people. Yes, to both, but you ARE in the city. The condo owner has done a good job with reducing noise (and provides earplugs if you want even more quiet) and we found the homeless population to be pretty much a non-event (they didn't approach us or harass us in any way). As far as noise, I was glad I wasn't in a hotel--no elevator dings, no people chatting in the hallways, no loud televisions from the next room. When inside of this condo you feel like you don't have a single neighbor. ZERO sound from other residents. We drove a smaller SUV and didn't have any problems getting it into the garage. Glad to have a backup camera, though, especially when arriving at night. Highly recommended! If we ever return to San Diego (and I suspect we will)--we will be back!
