  • Fantastic Location

    "Just spent 3 weeks at this condo and loved the great location. The area is right downtown across from the convention center, yet is quiet and almost secluded. The main attractions on the bay are within easy walking distance, as are grocery stores, restaurants, Horton Plaza and Petco Park. The condo itself is much more spacious than the photos suggest and had been recently upgraded with some new items, which was a nice plus. The building is well maintained and feels quite safe. Tovik and Colleen were very helpful, especially with our delayed arrival time. A slight negative is the freight trains passing close by at night can be quite noisy, but there are not many each day."

  • Great Downtown Location in San Diego

    "We spent 8 days in this condo in March. We were with another couple and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was great to be able to walk to the Gaslamp district, Horton Plaza, Seaport Village and an easy drive to Old Town, Little Italy, Coronado and the beaches. The condo is very well equipped, spacious and has an beautiful deck where we had most of our meals. Madeline delivered the keys to us during our week in Escondido and was in contact daily to provide information on restaurants, golfing, etc. We would highly recommend this condo."

  • Exceptional Rental Property

    "Three years ago we rented this beautiful condo for two months in an effort to escape the harsh New England winter. From that first wonderful stay it has become our yearly winter home away from home. If you are looking for a condo in San Diego that is perfect in every way then this is it! The downtown location is superb. Although there is an assigned parking space in a private garage under the building, you can leave your car at home. Located steps away is the Green Line trolley which can connect you to pretty much anywhere you want to go in addition to a wonderful bus system that can fine tune your destination. If you happen to be over 60, the cost for a monthly transit pass (unlimited use of all buses and trolleys) is only $18.00 (plus one time only fee of $2.00 to purchase transit card). The Gas Lamp district, located only a block away, affords all the dining and entertainment options you could possibly want along with fun shops and a movie theater. One might be concerned that with it's proximity to the trolley and Gas lamp the condo could be noisy. I assure you it isn't! Our winter stays have included both Mardi Gras and St. Patrick's Day celebrations (major parties) in the Gas Lamp and we have never heard any noise from within the condo. Located just a short walk away is a Ralph's grocery store and CVS is nearby as well. It is even a quick trip to Costco via the bus! Ready for a day of fun and adventure? Walk out the door, hop on the trolley and/or bus and soon you'll be at Sea World, beautiful Pacific Beach, Old Town, Coronado, La Jolla and the list goes on and on. Not to be missed is beautiful Balboa Park (bus 7 or 215!) home to the famous San Diego zoo. Don't miss the zoo but make sure you plan to spend another day or so at Balboa Park itself. It is a gem. After a long fun-filled day, returning to this condo is blissful. It is beautifully and tastefully decorated and has everything in the way of dishes, pots/pans, glasses, etc. that you could ever need. It is the best equipped rental in which we have ever stayed. No review of this wonderful spot would be complete without a comment about the owner. From our initial contact three years ago to the present time, he has been exceptional. When we first considered renting this place I had several questions. All my inquiries were answered promptly and he offered many excellent suggestions. He makes you feel like you are dealing with a friend as opposed to a landlord. I highly recommend this condo!"
