Overview

San Diego Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom (Sleeps 4)

Surrounded by tropical ambiance this cozy and studio/ one bedroom is the perfect place to get away. Located in the heart of the old, unique and beautiful neighborhood of Golden Hill, this is a prime location for a visit to San Diego. Located on a side street there is ample, safe and free parking.

Within just a few blocks you have the choice of a plethora of delicious local eateries. Cook your own steak at the legendary Turf Club, enjoy Humberto’s famous carne asada fries, or have a stone oven pizza while enjoying the outdoor patio of Luigis.

Just 4 minutes away you can visit the baby panda’s at the zoo or take in a museum and a walk through beautiful Balboa Park. Head less than 1 mile straight down Broadway into the lively downtown, Gaslamp or Little Italy, extremely convenient for Convention Center visits. If you are too tuckered after a busy day downtown, grab a bus as it drops you off just 1/2 block from the bungalow. Want to see a spectacular view of the San Diego bay? Hop on the ferry and cross the bay to Coronado for a day on the island. Golden Hill has easy access to all the major San Diego highways, making a trip to most San Diego beaches just 10-20 minutes away.

The bungalow is the perfect home away from home to return to after a funfilled day in San Diego. There is a spacious living room with a decorative divider between the living room and bedroom. With granite countertops and stainless steal appliances, the kitchen provides all the amnemities needed to cook your own fish tacos! Pots, pans, cooking utensils, dishes are all provided. Sit under the avocado tree, and enjoy the dual BBQ and charcoal grill on the newly designed patio/lounge area while relaxing in our comfy lounge chairs.

Sit back on the couch and enjoy the flat screen tv with HDTV or hop on the internet with our free WiFi. Did your clothes get sandy at the beach? We have on site coin operated washers and dryers. For your convenience we have provided a change machine and provide complimentary soap.

Each room is decorated with the comforts of home in mind. Sheets, towels and blankets are all provided as well as dish soap, toilet paper and paper towels.

Have pets? We are a pet friendly property and the yard provides a great romp and play area for your dog.

Your safety and peace are our priority and we provide 24hour video survellience for the extra layer of security.

About Ron & Susan Oleson

Retired professor. We travel internationally & have two Bichon's. Love to walk on the waterfront and eat the best fresh fish at Mitch's Seafood which is located at the Sport fishing landing. Balboa Park & the Zoo are favorites; Park has the Prado Restaurant which has great happy hour drinks & food; Zoo has Albert's Tree Restaurant which many do not know about; it is breezy & has an African motif.

Ron & Susan Oleson purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Ron & Susan Oleson chose San Diego

Very centrally located; less than one mile to Bay of San Diego, and 10 minutes over the bridge to Coronado with it's own beaches & Historic Hotel. Zoo & Balboa Park are a must see with it's multiple museums, Spanish Village free art studios, & great restaurants in & close to Park. From unit you reach park in 4 minutes. Also, Balboa Park Golf Course is 5 blocks away. Beaches are 20 minutes away on freeways; going East Casinos in 30 minutes.

What makes this apartment unique

Perfect cozy apt!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place to stay at for any length of vacation.my stay was about 10 days and I enjoyed every minute of it. The owners made everything easy and the apt is beautiful. I felt at home and comfortable during my stay. Not to mention the apt is close to everything. To get to pretty much anywhere it was only a 10-15 minute drive if that. I have nothing bad to say about this apt or my stay there. Parking was not a hassle do me, I always found a spot near the apt. It was absolute bliss and I would recommend anyone to stay here.

Looks exactly as described, noise problem.

  • 3 of 5

The Good:

Check in was easy, no need to meet the owner, just press the keypad code to get into your Unit. There was no check-out process as well, just clean up and leave on time.

Pictures are exactly what the unit looks like, street parking is plentiful, but crowded. We had to park a block away to find a spot, but not too bad all in all. Uber to gaslamp as $5 - $10 one-way, so cheaper / safer than finding parking downtown.

The Bad:

There was a big noise issue at night. The walls between the units are very thin-- to the point that we could hear conversations in the above unit. Specific to our stay, the unit above had a party through the early hours of the morning, which kept us up. Called the owner and left a voice mail, but never got a return call.

The water pressure in the shower was abysmal. Not sure if it was broken, because even the sink pressure was better.

tl;dr: good location, good value, noise problem and shower is bad.

Property was very nice and clean

  • 5 of 5

The apt was nice, clean and very close to everything. I was able to stay here with my dog no problem. Definitely better than staying at a hotel and I will be back.The apt also came equipped with everything you needed for a nice weekend getaway.

Cozy, near downtown, excellent price.

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here a weekend and had such a good time. The location took us to the zoo and snorkeling in La Jolla without having to drive more then 20min. Being downtown is convenient, close to grocery stores, gas stations, and the mall. This place is also dog friendly and has a cute patio that you share. I would definitely stay here again!

Nice location with friendly neighbors.

  • 4 of 5

Really nice rental with a good location. The only disappointing thing was no hot water in the shower. The sinks had hot water though. It did cause some of our party to sleep elsewhere. I would like to stay again if the problem is fixed.
