About John Reardon

I grew up in Northampton Massachusetts, a town with countless beautiful old homes and lots of woods. I spent countless days in my youth building tree forts never knowing that those 2 dynamics would intersect at this point. Upon arriving in San Diego with an interest in building and purchasing real estate, I became immediately interested in the largely neglected Victorian buildings in this area of town. This property became a labor of love for me many years ago and I hope that legacy will be carried forward by my 3 sons. My wife if Japanese, so our family often divides our time between 2 very different worlds, both with much to offer.

John Reardon purchased this apartment in 1991

Why John Reardon chose San Diego

It is our hope that our guests will appreciate the attention to detail and uniqueness of design that has been incorporated into every aspect of this property.

What makes this apartment unique

Cool place, great location

  • 4 of 5

Clean, as described and a very nice place to stay. Very good queen bed with nice outdoor areas to sit and relax.

Parking can be a problem requiring parking around the corner or across the street. Transitional neighborhood with a unique café on the corner. I would recommend .

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

John provides the complete accommodations, down to complimentary laundry facilities, barbecue grill and relaxing outdoor space. Our apartment was very comfortable and had all creature comforts. If there was some way to provide a better parking situation, the property would be the perfect vacation accommodation.

Lovely apartment in great position

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Johns apartment. It was a great position, about 15 mins walk to the centre of downtown. Although we didn't new John, he was easily contactable and promptly responded to requests. The check in and check out processes were extremely easy. It was very clean. Maybe a bit small for 3 adults but perfect for 2. We would stay there again.
