Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
(Note: For most accurate rates, please select the "Rates" icon and then select "View all Rates, or contact owner) Perfect 1 bedroom condo in a picturesque, impeccably maintained, Hillcrest complex, one of San Diego's most sought after neighborhoods. Top floor unit (floor 3, elevator), with lots of windows/sunlight, romantic balcony/deck, gym, central AC, garage parking, high efficiency washer/dryer in unit, high speed Internet, and a two great LCD HDTVs. One thing that is hard to capture in pictures is how this unit feels like a home. Three sides of the unit are unattached, with just one common wall to neighbors. There is no 'cave-like' feeling of many apartments. And the location is wonderful -- easy access (1 mile) to Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo, downtown/waterfront, Old Town and other sites (a quick drive to SD Airport).
Just steps to cafes, antique shops, restaurants, supermarkets -- this really is one of the prime San Diego locations. You can live here comfortably without a car.

Why Owner chose University Heights
The Hillcrest location of this unit is perfect. The home is steps to any amenity you can think of, with easy access to downtown, airport, and beaches. Balboa Park, less than one mile away, is a gem.

Local Services & Businesses
Sports & Adventure Activities
Very clean, quiet, comfortable and in a good spot.
Close go shopping, close to misssion beach, close to the zoo- the nicest neighbors of all time- if you are social. Great to have Trader Joe's nearby! Very clean place, very quiet at night.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and I am so glad you enjoyed the home. You would not believe how many times my guests say nice things about the neighbors and vice versa. Hope you can find a way for a return visit.
Great location, Great owner, Clean & convenient!
I rented Joe's condo for 4 weeks from Oct. to early Nov. 2015, and thoroghly enjoyed my stay there! The location was perfect, in the trendy Hillcrest area with abundance of great restaurants, Japanese, Mexican, Italian, etc., all around, as well as McDonald's, Jack in the box, etc. for those that fancy fast food, all within 5 min walk. Ralph's and Trader Joe's grocery stores, and Starbucks are just 100 meters away. Balboa Park is 15 min walk. Just off of 163, Washington St., and University Ave. makes getting around super easy by car or public transport. The apartment complex is very quiet and well-kept with swimming pool, gym, assigned underground parking spot, and the tenants (neighbours) are courteous and friendly. The apartment itself is very clean, well furnished and fully stocked kitchen with everything you can possibly need, full variety of pots & pans, dishes, utensils, linen, towels, spares for everything... The renovation is a bit older, but is nonetheless cozy and comfortable (I understand the owner will be remodelling in 2016), and the appliances that include washer and dryer are all new. The owner is very responsive and pleasant to deal with. Always responds promptly, and very helpful and considerate. All-in-all it's great a condo for great value, and I highly recommend it to travellers looking for hassle-free, value accomodation! You just can't go wrong with this one.
So glad you enjoyed your stay and happy to hear that you may come back. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. And thank you for pointing out the many shops and restaurants nearby.
Great Location in San Diego
I rented Joe's condo for my 3 month extended stay in San Diego and it was the PERFECT place to be. First of all the location is ideal - i could walk to Trader Joe's, Ralph's, Whole Foods and Sprouts! Plus, many, many restaurants. Joe's place is also a nice healthy walk to Balboa park. Although I had a car, taking public transportation downtown to the PETCO field for a ball game was easy. Several beaches are just minutes away via car. The condo itself was delightful. With windows on 3 sides, the evening cross ventilation was very nice. The condo is bright and cheerful and felt like home away from home. The bed was comfortable, the Wi-Fi was fast and there is plenty of closet space. Plus the convenience of having a washer/dryer in the unit was "worth the price of admission". Also having a reserved parking space in the garage was the icing on the cake. All-in-all, Joe's condo was the best value for me, and Joe was easy and pleasant to do business with.
Larry, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm very pleased to hear that the home worked out for you and appreciate that you left the condo in such fine condition. We hope to see you again....Thank you!
Perfect place for San Diego
I rented Joe's condo for the month of October and was very pleased with the unit and its location. Trader Joe's and Ralph's are across the street from one of the entrances, numerous restaurants and bars/clubs are literally minutes away on foot, and everything else one would want to see is nearby or easily accessible by bus (no car needed in this location). The complex is well kept and has a large, beautiful swimming pool with a jacuzzi, as well as a small gym that is great for a quick workout. Joe's unit is very spacious for a one-bedroom and has all the conveniences one would need. Also, Joe is very quick to respond to any questions one might have. I would highly recommend this unit in Hillcrest, one of the best areas in the city---clean, safe, and lots to do.
Thank you, Steve. I am glad to hear that both the condo and your trip to San Diego worked out. We hope to see you back at some time in the future.
