About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This chic & trendy penthouse condo is an ideal destination for business, convention or vacation travelers who can spend two weeks or longer. Sadly, our short term privilege has been revoked due to unseemly behavior by airbnb guests.

The condo is very well located, just a short walk to the Convention Center, Gaslamp District and Petco Park and is a terrific location for those wanting to spend more than a weekend in San Diego.

Hop on the trolley to Balboa Park, home of the world-famous San Diego Zoo and thirteen world-class museums. Trolley also takes you to Petco Park, Convention Center, Gaslamp District, and Seaport Village. Doing some business with the County of San Diego? Take the Blue Line to the County Administration Building, then on to Fashion Valley, where you can shop high-end designer boutiques, Nordstrom's, Neiman Marcus, Bloomies and more. Next on to Mission Valley with a myriad of consumer-friendly stores, or continue on to take in a game at Qualcomm Stadium.

Wonderful Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Great location with an easy walk to the convention center (about 10min brisk pace). Also just around the corner from Petco Park although the Padres were on the road during our stay. It was an easy walk to dinner or drinks in the Gaslamp district and access to the highway to explore up or down the coast was close by. We so enjoyed the secure under ground parking-made it a dream to come back from exploring and not have to search for parking. The building itself was secure with locked entries, quiet neighbors, and convenient elevators. We took advantage of the roof top patio and grill, cooking fresh seafood that we picked up at Point Loma Seafood and dining outside. Patti was quite responsive to our inquiries and made booking our stay easy. Beach towels were provided and were most welcome as being from the middle of the country spending time near the ocean was a priority and an easy drive. The kitchen was well stocked and it was great to have a washer and dryer to use. My biggest complaint about the condo was that the carpets needed attention. Hutch, who toured us on our arrival, said that they were cleaned every six months and we had booked at the end of the cycle. Our trip was a combined business and pleasure vacation, first time in San Diego, and went smoothly. I'd recommend this property and San Diego-looking forward to a return trip.

Fabulous condo and location!

  • 4 of 5

The condo is amazing! There's lots of room - cool kitchen & big bathroom. It's very clean and the rooftop deck is awesome! The location is great, you can walk pretty much everywhere or take a short Uber ride. Parking was also very easy! Patti was really great and handled the details like a champ! There's a train that runs until late hours and starts really early. It blows a whistle at the block before and after the building. So if you're a light sleeper bring ear plugs, but other than that, this is a great property at a great value!

PERFECT TIME AWAY....

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I planned a last minute trip to San Diego and discovered this property. This top floor condo is spotless and in a perfect area. We walked or took public transportation everywhere- never used the car! Our car was parked in a secure area of the building. Such a great neighborhood with great restaurants and shopping. The condo itself was so comfortable. We didn't do much cooking, but we could have with the full size kitchen. The building was safe and secure and very quiet at night. We loved being a part of neighborhood vibe...alot of foot commuters out during the day. Thank you Patti for everything (GO Chargers!!) and Lloyd for meeting us and showing us around!! We can't wait to come back!

Great choice!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo lived up to all expectations and more. It is centrally located and right near the trolley line. If you want to explore the San Diego area anywhere from the Tijuana to La Jolla, you do not need a car as the transit system in San Diego is incredible. The apartment itself is modern, comfortable with everything that you would expect in your home. The roof top patio was a real bonus and we spent many nights up there enjoying the view while we had our drinks or used the BBQ. The management team is top notch. We were greeted by the manager who explained everything about apartment and gave us some great recommendations on what to do in San Diego. He also responded very quickly to some last minute requests that we had. Highly recommended - you will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: The Great Escape Team is so pleased to have such delightful guests! Our Canadian guests, in particular, really enjoy this location and we enjoy you, too! We feature free telephone service into Canada to make you feel as much at home as we can! This couple was so kind and easy to work with...I hope they will take advantage of their Valued Returning Guest discount and come back soon! Cheers, Patti

Great location and very comfortable place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location in downtown San Diego. Trolley right outside if you need it. Walking distance to the harbor. Easy in and out of the garage. Secure building. Much better than a hotel room. Private deck is great place to enjoy the evening. Would stay here again.
