About the property

1 Bedroom Studio near everything

Cosmopolitan pied-a-terre in San Diego’s most prestigious and historic city-residential neighborhood and within strolling distance to Balboa Park, the world famous San Diego Zoo, all the major museums, the Old Globe theatre, the waterfront, Little Italy’s vibrant restaurant scene, and the center of Hillcrest, offering not only a multitude of wonderful restaurant choices but a Landmark movie theatre, live theatre, trendy boutiques, coffee shops

(both brand name and independents), varied nightlife, all major chain food stores as well as Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods and small neighborhood markets, plus all the services one could want or need. Weekly Farmer’s Markets are very close, The Gaslamp District and PetCo Park are nearby and the San Diego Airport is just 5 minutes away. On a major bus line, you won't need a car to reach all there is to do, see, and enjoy in beautiful San Diego including the bay and the beach. If you are a cyclist you will appreciate the fact that surrounding streets have just recently dedicated one full traffic lane to bicycles.

The apartment is immaculate, light, bright and tranquil with a designer décor, brand new kitchen, gorgeous views of wooded canyons, and a beautiful courtyard. It has all the comforts one could wish for in a home away from home. You will definitely feel like a resident rather than a visitor in this lovely home.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I had a great stay at Aaron's place in Bankers Hill in San Diego. My flight arrived late and Aaron was very accommodating to help me check in late. The apartment was clean and well equipped. There is even a blender and an expresso machine! Lots of light flows in from the window overlooking the canyon. The neighborhood is quiet, but both downtown and uptown are only one mile walks away (15-20min). I could not have been happier for the month I stayed.

Playing in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

The "Cosmopolitan Delight" was perfect. We could not have chosen a more perfect place to start our vacation. The accommodations met our expectations completely and the location fit our needs perfectly. This vacation started with 3 nights in San Diego and then boarded a Cruise ship for Mexico. Our first 3 days we dedicated to enjoying and exploring San Diego, we had not taken time to play here for over 20 years and it was far over due. This condo was perfect, we were very close to Balboa Park (and ALL of those amenities), close to "Little Italy", "Old Town", "The Gas Light District", Downtown and of course the Port. We DID walk too much... because we ate and drank too much... because we were having too much fun for not enough days! We WILL be back (soon) and I am sure we will secure this property again if it's available! Have confidence in this property, we did not experience any unpleasant surprises and, as we were told, there was ample parking available on the street. This was a concern of mine after living for 12 years in one of the oldest historic districts in Kansas City, where parking was at a premium. If you want to be close to everything, enjoy exploring cities and are heading to San Diego, you have a diamond here! Thanks to all and we had no disappointments on the property or trip!

Lovely studio, great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was delightfully decorated, comfortable and clean. The view out the kitchen window of the neighborhood canyon was a pleasure. It was close to good little markets and cafes and Balboa Park. It is easy to use the bus system, but also a very pleasant walk in any direction. Aaron was very good and prompt to deal with, I would be very happy to get to stay here again.

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful stay and would absolutely recommend this apartment. I ended up staying at Aaron's Unit F Studio apartment at the same address which was a little bit more expensive but has a regular bed instead of the murphy bed , has a full kitchen, and a wonderful balcony. Although it was a studio, the apartment felt very spacious, the kitchen had two french doors opening to a large balcony that felt like it doubled the space. I was there for a 4 month stay and it have everything I needed. The neighbors were all very pleasant and quite. Aaron was very responsive to all of my needs throughout my stay. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this apartment for a long or short stay.

Awesome Vacation Rental Experience

  • 5 of 5

Aaron accommodated all of my needs during the booking process and check-in. After my stay, he asked for anything that could be improved. The rental was true to the listing, and was a great home away from home for me and my boyfriend. I would recommend it to those looking to stay in San Digeo! It was very cozy and had everything I needed.
