  • Location, location, location. The location is fabulous!

    "Right in the heart of the Gaslamp a corner unit overlooking 5th street. Beside the restaurants, bars, and city life my favor part of the day was walking across the street to the harbor for my daily runs along the harbor. Even though I worked during the week, I came back at the end of the day, and felt like I was on vacation. I booked directly with Brandon and he replied to all my questions in a very timely manner. Brandon went out of this way to make sure everything went smooth. I had arrived late and tired not to mention after midnight. Brandon had everything in order and it was easy to retrieve the condo keys. The unit I had on was located on the 3rd floor. It was nicely decorated, very comfortable w/ both rooms having queen beds and sofa bed in the living room. The condo also comes with two parking spaces in the parking garage. This was a huge plus being that street parking was not always available. Hotels around here charge $30-$40 a night for parking and in San Diego you cannot get around so easily without a car. I have stayed in some of the other condo units in the past that Brandon manages and have to say this condo provides ample amounts of sunshine being a corner unit. Each condo is decorated differently and you can view them on the website. All of the kitchens are fully equipped with the standard kitchen appliances, utensils and cookware. This was an added plus for me because I was able to prepare breakfast, snacks and a few other meals at the condo. For meals that I did eat out there was plenty to choose from but my favorite is Donovan’s which is located on the ground floor of the same building. Be prepared to have a fantastic meal excellent service and a large bill… There are a couple grocery stores in the area which included Ralph's on 1st & Market and a discount grocery store on 10th & Market. It is true that they do not have a cleaning service daily but that is how it is anytime you rent a condo. I did request a mid-stay clean which was done while I was at work. The toiletries they offer are minimal but I brought all of our own. I do recommend getting a higher condo if the noise of city goers would be bothersome to you. However, you are downtown and that’s what the city experience is all about. Overall, it was a great stay, loved the location and being walking distance to just about anything you could need. This was my third time staying in one of Brandon’s condo, and I will definitely return."

  • A beautiful, well appointed, comfortable, and secure luxury vacation rental !

    "The Alicante building in Banker's Hill / Hillcrest neighborhood is by far the most well kept, secure, clean, and detailed high rise building in the area. The residents and management are all warm and friendly. We liked the location…a five minute walk to the Old Globe, Balboa Park, Zoo, Croce's Jazz Club, and San Diego's Hillcrest neighborhood with many great restaurants and bars. Grocery Shopping is close by, as is the Bus which stops in front of the building. It is a 5 minute drive to the airport and an $8. Uber fare. The underground parking (2) is very secure and the check in procedure simple and fast 24/7. Once you open the door to this beautiful flat you are immediately struck with the remarkable 270 degree views stretching from Balboa park to La Jolla, including the airport which is entertaining all day as you watch the jets weave between San Diego's towers. They are not loud as you are quite a distance from the airport itself. The view of San Diego's Big Bay is commanding and you can watch the many large ships arrive and depart…even the aircraft carriers and Cruise liners. The evening views are stunning as you are high atop downtown San Diego…the living room is large, the home entertainment center fantastic, with plenty of books to read on the shelves. There are two decks that include a full size BBQ and seating which is perfect for morning coffee or meals. The Kitchen complete with everything you need including a Keurig coffee maker and a view ! Both bedrooms have spectacular views from the beds, complete with televisions and roomy closets. The bathrooms are large with plenty of soap and towels. Internet worked fast and the motorized shades on the windows very convenient. Air conditioning kept us cool all day and night and there is even a small office cubby with a printer, paper, and extra ink. The owners really paid attention to detail down to the art on the walls. We loved our stay here and will be back many more times in the future. You can't stay in this level of luxury at this price anywhere in the world, let alone beautiful San Diego. A big THANK YOU !"

  • Home away from home

    "I love coming to this place, it really feels like home. I've stayed here several times this time was for 2 months. Everything is close by, easy access. The place is clean, comfortable, quiet and convenient. It had everything I needed for an extended stay. I hate to recommend this place for fear it will get too booked and I won't be able to get in!"
