About The Owner

We are San Diego natives, and we live in San Diego. We use this condo for our own mini-vacations. The East Village area is vibrant and always interesting; full of restaurants, pubs, and nightlife. We can provide recommendations on request.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2006

Why The Owner chose Downtown

The location is right smack in the action; right across from the ballpark, close to the convention center and Central LIbrary, a few blocks from the Gaslamp District, and walking distance to all of downtown.

What makes this condo unique

Leisure walk to/from the game, avoiding the parking rush. Or watch the game on TV while watching and hearing the action below. Walk around the corner to the gorgeous new Central Library (literally around the corner) and hang out without having to worry about parking.

Fantastic rental in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was fantastic. The apartment was clean and beautifully decorated, with high quality fixtures and an awesome view of petco park from the balcony. The location was convenient- my husband was able to easily walk over to his conference at the convention center, as well as several other restaurants/stores. We rented a car for longer trips around town, and we were pleased to have our own parking space in the garage right across from the elevators to the apartment. We were very impressed by helpfulness of the owners. We would definitely rent again. Thanks for providing an excellent rental, it made our first vacation away from our children that much more fantastic.

Chicagoan loves this unit in Petco Park

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this condo is an A-plus. The owners are extremely accommodating. The unit was super clean, well furnished. The view of Petco park was great from the unit and FANTASTIC from the ICON Skybox plus you get a bit of a view of Coronado Bridge and San Diego Bay. The building is newer, clean and upscale. Location can't be beat. Gaslamp district a few blocks walk but there's plenty of restaurants right in East Village. A 7-11 about a block away was an added perk!

Wonderful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this unit at the Icon Building the month of Sept. and it was perfect. Beautifully furnished, very clean and equipped with everything you need and more. The location is excellent, especially if you want to catch a baseball game at Petco or need a convenient location for the Convention Center. Wonderful views of Petco, San Diego Bay and downtown. The rooftop terrace is great, with BBQ grills lounge chairs and phenomenal views, whether you want to catch a Padre game, get some sun or just enjoy the view. The Icon is also close to the action of the Gaslamp (just a few blocks) and within walking distance to all the attractions of downtown.

I also enjoyed the walks across the new pedestrian bridge toward the Hilton, along the Embarcadero, Marina Park , Seaport Village and back. The trolley is also close by if you don't have your own car or want to head for a relaxing ride to Old Town, Mission Valley or go to a Charger game at Qualcomm.

The owners were great to deal with and made the rental experience a joy. Thanks Maureen and David for your assistance and great accommodation.

Sweet Downtown Condo

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property in July and it was a lovely experience. The unit is in a great building with doorman. The condo is clean and modern. Everything is new and comfortable. Lovely views and the owners were a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended for a stay in San Diego!

Amazing condo in the heart of dowtown!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is overlooking petco park..... the views are amazing!! I could have sat on the balcony all day on that 17 th floor looking at the view of petco park and the ocean with boats passing under the blue bridge. This place is within walking distance to everything your heart desires, but was extremely quiet too, the best of both worlds. The condo itself is designed beautifully, brand new everything! New carpet, new furnishings, a comfortable bed, underground parking, keys to enter and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, and cant wait to go back. It's hard to find a privately owned condo that is in this condition, it appears to be brand spanking new. I was compelled to write a review after this stay because we were so pleasantly surprised by the security of this place, the friendliness of people and staff, and the location. We walked to dinner and coffee in the morning....what a wonderful stay. Don't hesitate to book this place, you won't be sorry! Can't wait to go back!! 5 stars!!

We Had A Wonderful Time!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a gem! We stayed here in May, 2011. The condo is everything the listing says, and more! The rooftop is totally cool for a drink and a view of the city and bay. Our first day we took the ferry across San Diego Bay to Coronado. What a cute little town! We had BBQ at Lil' Piggy's, rented bikes for an hour and road around Coronado, then took the ferry back to San Diego. That night we went to the world famous Hodad's for a hamburger, and took in a movie. Be sure to take the trolley (the stop is a very short walk from this condo) to Little Italy on Saturday if you can! The Farmer's Market there is awesome! We had some breakfast paninis that I'm still thinking about! The Gaslamp District is a great place to check out all the action, but it was so nice to return to this condo for a restful night's sleep.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jason. Glad you enjoyed your stay in San Diego; did some pretty cool stuff for an out-of-towner ;-\ The panini place you're talking about is Seb's Panini in the Little Italy Mercado Farmer's Market, which is on Saturday. It also might be at the Gaslamp Farmer's Market on Sunday; I've seen some Yelp reviews for it there. You can also take the trolley further, past Little Italy, into Old Town San Diego for some Mexican food at Old Town Mexican Cafe. Thanks again for you review.
