Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Retired professor. We travel internationally & have two Bichon's. Love to walk on the waterfront and eat the best fresh fish at Mitch's Seafood which is located at the Sport fishing landing. Balboa Park & the Zoo are favorites; Park has the Prado Restaurant which has great happy hour drinks & food; Zoo has Albert's Tree Restaurant which many do not know about; it is breezy & has an African motif.

Why the Owner Chose Golden Hill, San Diego, CA, USA:
We have a vacation home rental & realized our geographic apartment location would be great for its accessibility to all that San Diego offers. We have a century home in front of the apartments & really enjoy San Diego's great sites like our Ball Park, just 3 minutes away & the Gaslamp.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Accessibility is key and the airport is so convenient due to our travels that we know those coming to San Diego can benefit from this travel ease.
