Additional information regarding our location, and surrounding area below;

****** Now OPEN, right around the corner is:
Indoor go-kart racing company K1 Speed signed a 50,275-square-foot, 10-year lease at 1709 Main St. in downtown San Diego.

The heart of every city is in its downtown, and San Diego is no exception. Located only minutes from the airport, San Diego's thriving downtown districts offer a variety of activities, dining and cultural attractions, all accessible by foot or by trolley. Modern and historic buildings stand side-by-side, in the downtown historic Gaslamp District, shops and boutiques, trendy nightclubs, rooftop bars and fine dining restaurants.

During the day, families can enjoy various cultural attractions, like The New Children's Museum, or take in a baseball game at Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres, or catch a ride on the trolley to Balboa Park and the Famous San Diego Zoo. With plenty of choices to eat, shop and explore, families can enjoy a true California urban safari in San Diego's downtown district.

Sea World (SeaWorld is an animal theme park, oceanarium, and marine mammal park )

Just about a mile away lies 3 miles of the Embarcadero district. Meaning 'the landing place' in Spanish, enjoy the Summer concerts and movies along the water’s edge. Embarcadero boardwalk hugs the east side of San Diego Bay, and is home to the San Diego cruise terminal, the Navy Pier and Seaport Village. Climb aboard to explore the ships at the USS Midway Museum, the Star of India, or the Maritime Museum of San Diego. If a moving sea vessel is more your flavor, hop on a harbor cruise and explore the San Diego Bay, or take a Ferry ride to Coronado. For fun on land, visit Seaport Village to grab a bite, see the street performers or pick up a one-of-a-kind gift.

                            Our stay at Casa de Corazon made our trip to San Diego that much better! Athena's hospitality stands out as the BEST we've ever received with rentals through VRBO. She met us at check-in and walked us through the entire property, showing us everything we might possibly need. She had everything we needed and typically would need to buy at the store (spices, oil/vinegar, coffee & filters, coffee grinder, toiletries/toilet paper/paper towels, laundry detergent, etc) as well as other items we could use during our stay (beach chairs/towels/toys, kids toys and books). She was available and responsive throughout the week when we had questions or needed a restaurant recommendation. The location for Casa de Corazon is perfect for accessing downtown, Coronado, and the interstate. It is in walking distance of the convention center, and the trolley is easily accessible. We tended to go to Coronado for the beach, running path, and restaurants because it was more low key than downtown (we were traveling with a 3 year old). We went to the Mercado across the street for all our grocery needs and frequented Ryan Bros. coffee next door. Perfect location for those looking to be close to downtown without having to fight (and pay) for parking and without dealing with downtown traffic multiple times a day. There was noise at night from cars (as there would be anywhere you stay close to downtown) and it was easily tuned out by using a sound machine and/or earplugs.

                            Owner response: Thank you for your glowing, detailed review, we appreciate you letting our Guests know all that we offer for an enjoyable stay. It was such a pleasure to meet you and your family, I enjoyed meeting your little one.. We are so glad you found everything needed, enjoyed your stay, and were able to use our beach accessories as well. Thank you for being so conscientious, and respectful of our Home. This is actually the first time or review anyone has mentioned any noise at night, I don’t know if you had your dual pane windows opened or closed. Thanks for your suggestions; my husband is out right now getting a couple of sound machines and foam ear plugs just in case. Being near the City, in an Urban environment verses being in the suburbs, has it’s pluses and minuses. We have been told from our Guests staying with us, whose friends decided to stay in the Heart of Gaslamp/downtown that the noise of downtown was incredibly loud, and did not die down until closing of bars at 2:00am, and as you stated no parking or paid parking. We feel lucky to have ample free parking, and we are not in the "Bar District" yet so close to all the activity !! We do have all the sounds that an urban environment has. *Reading your review, we can tell you agree, the pluses of being so close to Gaslamp/downtown, and all it has to offer; truly outweighs the negatives of being right in the Heart of Gaslamp/downtown!! *****Casa de Corazon gives a big 5 stars to Sara, and her Family, they are always welcome !! Until next time, Athena & Bo

                            I can not say enough wonderful things about this rental. The rental owner is an absolute breeze to work with. She was at the house on arrival and gave us a lay of the land. She was so fun and friendly! We loved her. It was an excellent first impression of the property. Not that the property needed any help....it was amazing! Such a great fit for our needs. Cute, clean, modern, and sooooo comfortable. The bedrooms were great and the beds were so comfy. It made it tough to get up and get going in the morning. We had four people in our group and we had tons of room for everyone inside but we did spend most of our time on the balcony/patio overlooking the city! I highly recommend the property to anyone/everyone. They have any incidental you could need and the property is a quick ride to all the major hot spots. It is the definition of convenience. We used Uber car service to get around and it was never really more than 10-15 bucks. So awesome. Oh....and if you are looking for some amazing Mexican food try Rivas (get the carne Asada fries)!!! It's a hole in the wall two blocks down the street and it is FANTASTIC!!!! We also checked out the coffee shop right next door and it did not disappoint!

                            We had a great time staying at Bo and Athena's place. True to the description, it is very close to the Gaslamp and convention center. It was less than a 10 minute drive to the San Diego zoo and central to everything. The house is very well-appointed and has all the comforts and amenities of home. The king size bed was so comfy and we loved the custom couch in the living room with all the pillows! We brought our 21 month old son and Athena made sure we had everything we could possibly need to make the stay easy and fun. She provided a pack-n-play, umbrella stroller, high chair, cabinet locks and a gate for the stair case. THANK YOU ATHENA! Parking was super easy too. When there wasn't parking right in front of the house (which was only a couple times), we parked in the free parking structure directly across the street. The large mercado is directly across the street (as described) and there is also a terrific coffee shop right next door and an awesome hole-in-the-wall Mexican place a couple blocks away where we had the best fish tacos ever! Athena greeted us at our arrival and showed us everything. Great balcony with a beautiful view of the city too. Really can't say enough good things about this place. I highly recommend it!

                            This property worked out exceptionally well for us! Athena met us upon arrival and showed us everything we needed to know and the place was spotless, had all the room we needed and was very well equipped. The Mercado market across the road was perfect for our food shopping needs so we could cook anytime we wanted. The outside area off the living room was a nice surprise and it was nice to sit out there and watch the sunset. We liked the area and walked a lot but the trolley was close by if we needed it. Overall a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. I would go back in a minute!

                            Came to San Diego for a conference at the convention center. The location was great- could walk to the convention center (about 12 minutes) or take the trolley line. The condo was nicely furnished, comfortable beds. The owners were so helpful and the condo was well appointed with all the things you need to cook a quick meal or make a nice cup of coffee. The deck was cool and had a great view of the bridge to Coronado Island. The patio was nice to sit on as well and relax in the sun with a book. The Mercado across the street offered easy access to groceries. Free parking in the garage next to the Mercado was a nice addition.

                            Great place to stay. Athena was super nice and keeps the place spotless. One of the nicest VROBs that I've stayed at. Was at a convention so was close to the gas lamp district and there is free parking available. Will use this place again if I am in San Diego again.

                            Our Family of 5 came to San Diego to experience the Night life of the gaslamp and downtown area, as well as the touristy things. The price and pictures are what caught our attention right away because it was not in the direct bar scene, however we were able to walk to the gaslamp, seaport village and much more. We took the Trolley a lot after a full day of walking, even a old fashion trolley tour. Parking was a breeze and no meters on the street. Athena had sent us links for some San Diego sightseeing, they worked out great. We ended up only using our car to get to some further beaches in about a 10 to 15 minute drive to check out the seals at La Jolla, and the tide pools in point Loma. The grocery store across the street was a special treat, the deli will cut your steaks any thickness you ask for. A very large flat screen tv in living room and in each bedroom all had Netflix already signed in for us to use. Beds were super comfortable, the couch was large and cozy, great view on the balcony and the house itself was spotless and had everything and more even spices to BBQ with. Athena and Bo were great from helping us plan, to meeting us and showing us where everything was. These are very caring people and you can tell they are genuine. We have already made plans for our return next year. Thank you Athena and Bo, we will be back.

                            First and foremost, I would like to say that Athena is extremely accommodating and thoughtful. We have a 3 year old daughter and it was lovely to see that the home was stocked with Disney books, games, etc. The extra room with the twin was nice because it's the perfect size for a child to play in and all the toys stayed in there! Athena has thought of everything....if you forget something, don't worry - she has you covered. Simple things like make up wash cloths, extra toiletries. Spices in the kitchen. There was not one thing we were without. We walked to the Gas Lamp quarters, Sea Side village and much more. This place is close to everything!! We definitely plan on returning. We had a fabulous time, not to mention the beautiful skyline of downtown right outside on the balcony!! Thank you Athena and Bo - you are the best!!!

                            Bo and Athena were the best hosts. They greet you when you arrive show you everything about the house. We stayed with another couple had the upstairs unit which was very quiet and meets all your needs. Very well stocked and any questions host go above and beyond the duty of helping. The house was very clean and we had no problems. We are looking forward to going again sometime in the future and especially to visit with Bo and Athena.

                          Why the Owner Chose Gaslamp Quarter:
                          We choose this property for it's unique Location. When we purchased this property, we knew that the City would be revitalizing our Urban Neighborhood, building a Mercado right across the street from our property, and the location was part of San Diego's NEWEST Revitalization project. We are close to the Convention Center, Petco Park, Gaslamp Quarter, Downtown, Seaport Village, Little Italy, Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, and much more.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Our property is across the street from the new Mercado Del Barrio (Great Local Cuisine) . We are in a very unique Urban Neighborhood, with so much going on; Local Artists shows (the Root Factory), Farmers Market, take a walk to the Park, and down the Pier. We are located by the San Diego Bay, close to the San Diego Convention Center, Centre City, East Village, and the Petco Baseball Ballpark. Adjacent to all forms of transportation and the San Diego Bay, its eastern San Diego location is immediately next to a burgeoning downtown area. We are set in an Urban Neighborhood on the Eastern edge of the Gaslamp Quarter.
