About Anthony Napoli

When this historic home became available in 2006 my wife and I jumped on it. As a real estate broker in Downtown San Diego and a Little Italy resident since 1999 I saw the opportunity to own a special place in a special neighborhood. Very rarely do detached homes go on the market because they are usually passed on to the children and grandchildren of the Italian families that own them. We lucked out in finding this warm and inviting home. You will love it here and keep coming back. I promise you.

Anthony Napoli purchased this house in 2006

Why Anthony Napoli chose Downtown

As you can imagine, everyone loves San Diego and many want to move here if they could. Downtown San Diego has blossomed over the years. Little Italy is the jewel of San Diego and is held up to be a model for urban development by national experts. In fact Little Italy was ranked in the top ten of urban neighborhoods in the entire country. That's why we love it here. The people are friendly and the cafe's and restaurants within walking distance are two numerous to mention. I guess the only thing left to say to those who stay here is 'Buon Appetite'.

What makes this house unique

There are many unique benefits to staying at Doma Napoli. We are located only 5 minutes from the airport and walking distance to the bayfront. There you can visit the Maritine Musuem, the Midway Aircraft carrier plus much, much more. We will have a book of brochures explaining all the local attractions that are literally minutes away by foot or automobile.

Totally different than any other property that you can rent. And to make it even better it's located in the best neighborhood in the City of San Diego, Little Italy, a hip and historic district.

Doma Napoli, paradise found.

  • 5 of 5

Anthony Napoli is the king of little Italy, and if your lucky enough you get to stay at his palace in the heart of this ever changing neighborhood. Columbia Street where this treasure is located is one block up from India Street, the major thoroughfare of Little Italy, yet the nights are quiet and the sleep you need after a full day touring Southern California will be had in either of the two beds provided, and the shower provides ample power to blast out the sleep from your eyes. Did I mention there is a full size pool table. Anthony is a friendly Native New Yorker and a great host, who now enjoys life in one of America's premium destinations, go see it for yourself, you can thank me later.

Owner's Response: Tony You are too kind. It was great to see you again as you made your second visit to Doma Napoli. Sara and I always enjoy having guests experience Little Italy and all the activities in the surrounding area. Next time don't wait two years before you come back. 😀� Anthony

Terrific location, accommodating hosts

  • 5 of 5

Tony’s basement apt is in a perfect location in San Diego, close to the airport, within easy walking distance of the Embarcadaro, a 10 minute drive from Balboa Park. There is also free covered parking next door in a gated parking garage, which is worth it’s weight in gold in parking challenged Downtown San Diego. There are all kinds of restaurants nearby, and Tony was happy to offer recommendations. Apt is well equipped and very satisfactory for two or three people. Tony and his assistant Amanda were very accommodating about meeting us at the apt when we had an airline delay.

Only complaint is the internet was spotty and kind of slow for a big city. Otherwise an excellent stay in a fun city. We would stay again.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home as a place to stay while coming to visit my daughter in San Diego, where she is doing her residency at the hospital. We wanted to find a place that was a reasonable distance from her at a reasonable price, but what we got, was so much more! The house was absolutely beautiful, clean, with a homey feel and the pool table was so much fun. Both beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was very functional. Anthony, the owner, is an absolute sweetheart, he made sure that we had everything we needed and was very responsive if we did need him for anything. Overall we had an incredible time at this home and will definitely be trying to rent here again!

Cozy apartment with character

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in the heart of little Italy, and yet quiet, clean, and a great garage next door which is included. I did not take advantage of all the excellent kitchen facilities. Rooms are spacious and excellent bathroom. However you should be aware that you are not renting the house as shown on the beautiful picture of the outside, the rental is below in the basement making it a little dark, but I did not mind being away during the days.

My wife and I were bringing our son to college. We had the opportunity to stay at this apt, it was fantastic, clean, cozy. There is a pool table that provides hours of fun. The apt has a kitchenette, although little Italy has plenty of food options right around the corner. The neighborhood is wonderful, they have a Saturday Farmers market, a one block walk to coffee...two blocks to the main street full of various Restaurants, 4-5 blocks to the marina. . There is construction across the street it did not bother us, a food truck stops for the construction workers, they had great breakfast sandwhiches.

Anthony is very personable and responsive to our needs.

The house is fantastic!
