"This one bedroom condo could not be in a more perfect location in the “East Village/Gaslamp section of downtown San Diego. It's 1/2 block from Petco Park stadium—the home of the San Diego Padres, it's two blocks from the new and large modern central library, it's about six blocks from the Convention Center. If you don't want to drive there are plenty of transportation choices including the trolley that takes you to a fabulous Saturday Market and great eating in Little Italy, the historical area of Old Town, and the shopping meccas of Fashion and Mission valleys and even east into El Cajon. The condo is far enough away from the center of downtown to be relatively quiet (at least on non-game days) but is still surrounded by small restaurants and many places to grab a drink.
The sixth floor condo itself feels fairly spacious with clean lined modern Ikea-type furnishings and lots of colorful art. The TV was small but adequate and has HDMI connections for those with devices they may want to hook up. It does not have a CD/DVD player which it could use. The kitchen is large enough to cook in and there are plenty of dishes and glassware, although serious cooks may want to show up with their own knives. The bedroom is nicely dark, due to a tall building next door. The bed is actually twin mattresses pushed together, however the king sized foam cushion on top of them keep you from falling into any crack between the mattresses and makes the bed very comfortable. We could have wished for a bedroom TV, but the room layout makes that difficult.
The small balcony off the living/dining room is nice and makes the apartment feel spacious because it doesn't look directly into another tall apartment house, but across the roofs of shorter buildings.
There are 14 floors in the building with the top floor having a small workout room with a TV, a small lounge area, and an outside deck from which you can see right into the baseball stadium with a center field vantage point, and across to catch a glimpse of the Coronado Bay Bridge. Freeways to all parts of San Diego are convenient, so a car can be useful.
Our hosts were very gracious and responsive and kept in close contact with us to make sure we were happy.....we even met with them over a glass of wine that they treated us to. When we booked, the calendar showed that the unit was available. The owners had actually planned to stay there themselves, but arranged their schedule so we could enjoy the unit."

"I was in town for work and stayed at this unit for two months. The unit is absolutely beautiful, comfortable, and well-stocked with everything you would need for a short-term or long-term stay. I really enjoyed being able to read and drink coffee on the beautiful balcony during the weekends and enjoy the huge flat screen TV in the evenings. During the day, there is almost no reason to turn on the lights, as the unit is filled with beautiful San Diego sunlight! The fitness center is also clean and perfect for a quick workout. It's also perfectly situated in downtown San Diego, with walking-distance access to Petco Park, the Convention Center, the trolley, and a dizzying array of restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. In addition, Brandon was the most responsive, friendly, accommodating, and professional person to work with. If I had a question or concern, I received an answer from Brandon quickly, if not immediately. I will definitely stay in this property again when I return to San Diego, and would recommend this to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay and enjoy San Diego!"
