Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 29 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

You can't beat this location in the heart of Little Italy. Amazing restaurants, cafes & quaint shops line the streets. Located on the top-floor, this corner unit is very quiet. The walls are well-insulated, and I have never heard any noise from the neighbor. The Convention Center, San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Petco Park, and Qualcomm Stadium are all just a short distance away! Beaches, shopping and the famous Gaslamp District are a trolley ride away. Easy freeway access.

Located a few blocks from the bay and only 10 minutes from the airport. If you are here on business, the unit is set up with everything you need: multifunction printer/scanner/copier/fax machine as well as office supplies.

There is an iPod/iPhone dock so you can enjoy your music while staying here.

A beautifully appointed gym with modern equipment is in the building. Prefer to be outdoors: run or walk along the San Diego Bay. There is also a huge common area patio with sunning chairs, two gas BBQ grills and a stunning direct view of the sailboats bobbing around on the bay.

Visit beautiful San Diego, stay in charming Little Italy, and enjoy paradise! Let my condo be your home away from home here in paradise. 1-month minimum rental.

About Aron Wilson

A frequent traveler myself--for both business and leisure, I've used VRBO on many occasions with great results. I'm excited to now return the favor and make my home available for others to enjoy.

Aron Wilson purchased this condo in 2006

Why Aron Wilson chose San Diego

Little Italy is centrally located with a cozy neighborhood feel and all the benefits of a big city. As the first owner of the property, I purchased this condo in late 2006. It is close to the vibrant downtown Gaslamp District scene. Little Italy is home to some of the city's best restaurants and cafes, steps from the unit. When returning home, it was always an easy hop from the airport and my stress from traveling melted away every time I saw the giant Little Italy sign welcoming me back to the neighborhood.

What makes this condo unique

I have come to know many of the restaurant owners (and tried almost all of them) over the years. I'll make sure to suggest some great places for you to try while you are visiting.

Sea World and all the beaches are an easy drive or cab ride from the property. There is also a water taxi on the bay that can take you over to the famous Coronado Island. The convention center is 2.2 miles away (about a 7 minute taxi ride). It is possible to hail a taxi, but usually easier to just call one. They typically arrive 10 minutes after you call.

Great Condo in Great Part of San Diego

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at this condo. The unit has everything needed for a comfortable one-month stay, and Aron, the host, met us at the unit to help us get settled in. Little Italy is right in the heart of San Diego with restaurants, bars, cafes, and the waterfront just steps away. Wouldn't hesitate to book here again.

Great condo! Great location! Great city!

  • 5 of 5

Another great visit to San Diego. We appreciate Aron's hospitality and how easy he is to reach if we need him. Thanks for the chocolate bars and the wine, Aron! We use public transportation a lot while we are in San Diego and the condo is very close to transit stops. The parking spot indoors is great when using a car and from the location, it is easy to access major highways. The unit has all the appliances and amenities we need. The location in Little Italy is wonderful. The neighborhood is vibrant, full of restaurants, coffee shops and lots of other interesting sites. Saturday visits to the weekly market are a must and we look forward to returning for another winter stay.

Wonderful Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in Aron's condo! It was clean, in perfect shape, and very well stocked with all the amenities you need!

It is right in the heart of Little Italy and convenient. There are many great restaurants within walking distance.

Aron was extremely easy to work with...and even brought us chocolates and a bottle of wine!

We highly recommend this condo!!

And will definitely be back if we return to San Diego again!

Excellent San Diego Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

I can highly recommend this well appointed penthouse condo with great amenities. Great location not only to Little Italy but to all the main attractions. There is a Little Italy stop for the hop on hop off trolley within walking distance that I would recommend for a great overview of the San Diego area for 1st time visitors. Garage parking, health club, terrace, speedy internet and within walking distance of a plethora of good eateries.

Aron is a wonderful host who is available for any questions and checks in to ensure you are having an enjoyable stay.

THANK YOU Aron for your generous hospitality. I obviously enjoyed my stay and am looking forward to staying with you again when I return to San Diego.

Clean and comfortable stay in central location.

  • 5 of 5

We are a young couple travelling in San Diego for leisure.

The condo was clean and comfortable. It has everything that you could possibly need: full kitchen, beach towels, hairdryer, w/d, air con, large bathroom with bathtub (for those with kids), parking spot, etc. There is also free parking right outside the building in case you need it (do check the signs as different sections have different restrictions). We had to park outside one night due to cleaning in the parking lot.

Listing description regarding layout, location and amenities were accurate. Property was clean and well-maintained.

Aron was very responsive and has great customer service; he even leaves you with chocolate and a bottle of wine to start off your stay! There is also a info booklet in the unit prepared by Aron. Check-in and check-out was very smooth without any issues.

Location was also fantastic. About 10 min drive from airport. 10 min drive to Balboa Park or you can walk in about 20 min (we did that and took Uber back). The drive to Coronado is also very close (10 or 15 min) and has a massive beach. The condo is in the heart Little Italy so all the wonderful restaurants are only a 3 min walk away. We highly recommend Ironside Fish and Oyster Bar and iDessert is worth an experience (get the Vegas ice!). Next to the building is a new yoga studio with cold pressed juice (good but pricey). On Saturdays, there is a farmer's market about 3 blocks away (bring cash). The waterfront area is also walking distance!

We felt very safe in the area. On our first night, we were wondering around at midnight and had no issues.

We enjoyed our stay. The only minor issue was that the fire alarm went off one night at 1am but that could happen anywhere.

We would definitely recommend this property.

Thank you Aron for hosting us!
