About Ryan Smith

We are two professionals who, when we aren’t grinding away during the work week, are passionate about travel and have visited destinations all over the world. Throughout our extensive travels, we have discovered that we prefer a vacation rental over other types of accommodations—not only is this type of property unique, it provides more space and amenities for the money. Now that we are vacation rental owners, we have replicated unique aspects that we have enjoyed on our trips by incorporated these into our own property. We hope you enjoy the experience as much as we do!

Why Ryan Smith chose Middletown

We purchased this property because WE LOVE SAN DIEGO! The weather, the natural splendor, the sunsets, the people and the diverse range of activities truly make San Diego an elite travel destination!

What makes this studio unique

The bay and city views from our home are out of this world, and the location—in a safe, residential area within walking distance to everything fun in San Diego—doesn’t get any better. Plus, we spent a copious amount of time and attention on perfecting the interior design to be inviting, eclectic, and worthy of our guests visiting from all over the world.

Our rental has truly breathtaking views of San Diego Bay and downtown. Additionally, it's centrally located to the many fun happenings in San Diego such as Gaslamp Quarter, Balboa Park, Little Italy, the San Diego Zoo, Sea World Coronado Island, Pacific Beach, La Jolla and much more.

Great studio, great location.

  • 4 of 5

This was an awesome place to stay! Central location so the uber rides were cost effective everywhere we went. The hosts were great and easy to get a hold of. The place was absolutely spotless and had everything we needed to cook with. The only downside is the noise from the I-5 and airport. Make sure to check oit the Aero Club Bar which is a block and a half away. Great dive bar with 950 whiskeys and very friendly staff and patrons!!!

Highly recommend

Great view and location. About a 5 minute ride to downtown. The property itself is modern, clean and spacious. The owners provided a ton of information regarding the property, entertainment, food and transportation and were in contact to make sure my accommodation needs were met. Highly recommend!

Perfect San Diego Studio

  • 5 of 5

Nice 3 Night stay with my husband and daughter. This was the perfect accommodation for my little family. (Great for a couple or small family) The studio was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed for a comfortable vacation and the View out of the front of the house was awesome. The washer and dryer came in really handy.

We were minutes away from great local restaurants and sights. Parking was off site on the street but we never had a problem finding a spot right in front of the studio. We Ubered a couple times down town where parking was limited and only spent $5 to $6 per trip.

Ryan was great to work with and he definitely cares that you have a nice stay in his place. We highly recommend this spot for your San Diego stay.

Location, location, location

My wife and I greatly enjoyed our stay here. The view was amazing, the owners were very friendly and responsive, and it was in an ideal location. Your a 10 min walk from the trolley station and some pretty good food spots. When we did decided to take an uber, the most expensive fare wasn't more than $15, and that was to Coronado. I would highly recommend this place If your looking for something quiet and close to all the main attractions of San Diego.

Perfect location for getting around with a beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

The rental is very clean and comfortable. It has everything you need including internet and tv. The view is great and it is close to just about everything downtown and we never had to wait more than 10 mins for an Uber to arrive. Ryan(the owner) was very responsive and courteous. The only slight issue is the noise. The rental is very close to the freeway and the airport so you do here some distant transportation noise. However, there is a sound machine provided so we slept to the well each night. We would definitely stay here again. It was the perfect size for just the two of us.
