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 Sadly, our short term privilege has been revoked due to unseemly behavior by airbnb guests.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.

Nearest Airport : San Diego International Airport at 5 Miles
Nearest Train : Amtrak / The Coaster at 2 Miles
Nearest Motorway : Highway 163, 5 North or South at 1 Miles
Nearest Beach : beach at 8 Miles
Car: recommended
