About J.D.

I work as Vice President of Sales. 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 East Village

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.

Way better than a hotel

  • 5 of 5

JD was super attentive, he checked in to make sure we were settled. The house is very unique. We were there for a girls running weekend. We spent a lot of time just hanging out in the living room.

Two things to note, bring earplugs or use ones provided. I live in the country and there is a lot of city noise here so I was sensitive to that. Second the dishwasher is super quiet it took the three of us almost 10 minutes to figure out if we got it going or not.

I would definitely come back and stay here again. And recommend it to my friends and family.

JD was a great host. He is extremely responsive and what quick to help with any questions we had. The place was well equipped with everything needed for our stay and the location was right next to the Gaslamp action. Definitely recommend this place!

Great condo/excellent location

  • 4 of 5

This condo is beautifully decorated and has everything you need for a comfortable stay in San Diego. I attended a conference with two colleagues and we shared the condo. The futon style coaches are actually quite comfortable when pulled out as a bed. There is a fair bit of street noise but the owner has thoughtfully placed white noise machines on each floor which work well. It was a healthy 15 minute walk to the conference center which was a beautiful way to start the day. Very close to groceries, Starbucks and a short walk to the many restaurants in the Gaslamp district. JD was easy to deal with and everything from booking to our stay was straightforward and efficient. I definitely recommend this rental😀?

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay and would recommend the rental. The noise is an issue in any metropolitan city. Last year I spent over 10K to install soundproof windows in both bedrooms. These are remarkable effective. It is the only vacation rental or hotel in San Diego I am aware with these windows. Thank you for renting the home and taking the time to write the review.

Beautiful and spacious home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and spacious home in a convenient location. Our family used this as a convenient jumping off point to go to the zoo, Balboa Park, USS Midway, and Gaslamp area of San Diego. Just a couple min to the I5 entrance also. The condo is three levels and very nicely designed / decorated. Very handy to have multiple beds, bathrooms (I love the upstairs rain shower!) and a well-stocked kitchen. JD checked on us multiple times during our stay to ensure we were taken care of. Overall a great experience.
