Golden Hill apartment description

Whether you're looking for a quiet vacation cottage or a place to relax after a long day of walking the convention center floor, you'll love the convenience and quiet comfort of our guest cottage. The one bedroom, one bath residence has been renovated with a mix of reclaimed wood details, modern furnishings and plenty of attention to making sure your stay is awesome!

Outside, you'll enjoy sipping a drink or grilling your dinner on the inviting backyard patio. Inside, you'll find everything you need to be right at home. From free wireless internet, to soft sheets, a full length mirror, ironing board, filtered water, cooking utensils, microwave, original wall art and a spotless bathroom with comfy towels, your home away from home will have the little luxuries that make travel easier.

The couch folds down into an extra bed if necessary. We supply comfy extra bedding (sheets, mattress cover and blanket) as well.

The property is quiet, private and landscaped with a colorful mix of orange trees and flowering plants. Because of its close proximity to the San Diego Bay, the temperatures stay relatively mild year round. Don't worry though, if the temperatures warm up, you'll sleep in air conditioned comfort if you desire.

If you're in town for the convention center, a ballgame at Petco Park, an event at Qualcomm Stadium, business in downtown or a visit to the local malls or university, you'll especially appreciate the fact that the Trolley is located an easy two blocks away. Just hop on board and you'll be at the Convention Center in ballpark in one quick stop.

There's plenty of street parking out front. To make things even easier for nearby trips to the Gaslamp, Balboa Park or Zoo, you'll have a couple of free bicycles available for you to roam around on. Zoom! Zoom!

              Owner info

              About the owner: I've been a San Diego based photographer for the past 20 years. I'm also a regular hiker, runner and adventurer who's familiar with every nook and cranny of San Diego and its outskirts. After helping so many of my guests create itineraries for their visits here, I decided to write a book, Seven Days in San Diego, that lays out seven days worth of things to do and places to visit - all accompanied by plenty of beautiful photos.

              Why the Owner Chose Golden Hill:
              The Sherman Heights neighborhood where my property is located is the last affordable neighborhood immediately adjacent to downtown. It's perfectly situated near the Trolley, the East Village, Golden Hill, Balboa Park etc. The Coronado Bridge is visible outside my window. It's also a historic district where the distinctive turn-of-the-20th Century Craftsman style homes are being meticulously restored. It's a perfect mix of urban convenience with residential quiet and style.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              Upon purchasing the house, I've extensively remodeled it inside and out. Both inside outside combines modern styling with the historic Craftsman house. The end result is a environment that's stylish but comfortable. I once had an architecturally savvy family from Sweden stay with me. They said that the mix of modern and hand-wrought elements made them feel like they were right at home. That's what I like to hear!
