Cortez apartment description

Spanning over 3,900 square feet, this spacious 3-bedroom, 2-full bath, two-level penthouse has been renovated and dressed-to-impress even the most demanding of tastes. Nestled above a tree-lined residential street in historic Cortez Hill, the most desirable neighborhood in downtown San Diego, this vacation property is a perfect harmony of pleasure and leisure. While the building’s proximity to all points of interest is a huge plus, the penthouse itself is the real superstar.

This vacation home seamlessly blends casual luxury with relaxed resort-feel. Its free-flowing, open layout was designed for entertaining, with breathtaking city and bay views.

Comfortably furnished, this rental property has glistening hardwood and beautiful Spanish tile floors throughout. A generously proportioned living room holds a grand piano for music lovers. The private dining room is big enough for formal dining while the great sunroom provides fun with a full-size pool table.

Everything necessary to prepare delicious meals for you and your guests is available in the large open kitchen; featuring stainless steel appliances, abundant countertop prep space, and all of the small appliances and service ware you'd find at home.

Upstairs is the Crow’s Nest bedroom. Resting under a cathedral ceiling, the room displays 360-degree mesmerizing city and bay views.

Looking out over San Diego, America’s Finest City, is a great way to spend the night, or day, this is why penthouses have always been the most sought out units in sky rises. It’s also why they make such great venues for truly special occasions, small weddings and memorable celebrations.

Everyone can enjoy the sights without a car. It’s a seven block walk down the hill to the Gaslamp Quarter and a little further to Little Italy. Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo are steps in the other direction. Fifteen minutes by foot will get you to the Padres' Petco Park, San Diego Convention Center and Seaport Village. It's only a three minute taxi ride to Hillcrest. The San Diego Trolley is five blocks down the hill going north to Old Town, east to San Diego State University and south to Tijuana, Mexico.

Amenities: Wireless internet, flat screen, cable TV, 2 private parking places, private elevator to help unload supplies; linens and towels. The penthouse’s comfortable furnishings and appointments make everyone feel secured, pampered and, above all, welcome.

Any time is a good time to visit San Diego and enjoy all the city has to offer.
