About Brian Gregory

Former Consultant who loves to travel and scuba. Real Estate professional specializing in residential and investment properties. Looking to relocate or buy a vacation home in San Diego or Palm Springs I can help.

Brian Gregory purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Brian Gregory chose North Park

This is our main home that we recently remodeled and the apartment at the back of the property provides an ideal accommodation for those seeking a centrally located place to stay in the area.

What makes this apartment unique

I love this house and its convenience to all that San Diego has to offer, I like to walk from here through the zoo, balboa park . or drive a short distance to the beaches or local mountains. Its ideal for relaxing but also central to all the night life

Great stay in a great rental!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this rental! Everything about it was perfect for our family of three (including a toddler): the location was great (plenty of great walking to parks and food); the neighborhood was safe and friendly; we found everything we needed at the apartment (brand new pack n play, high chair, abundant supplies of all of the necessities including movies for kids, etc); beds were really comfortable and the apartment was nice and quiet. There was also a private parking spot for us next to the apartment in the alley which was really convenient. Brian, the owner, was always responsive and helpful when we asked questions. We will definitely stay here again!! Thank you!

Outstanding Property, Great Location, Quiet, Comfortable, Clean, and Off Street Parking

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at this property. It has off street parking which was an added bonus. It was very clean, quiet, and comfortable. We cooked most nights and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals just like at home. The king bed was very comfortable in the master. Location was perfect for visiting museums in the Balboa Park area, visiting the San Diego Zoo and harbor. Will definitely recommend to friends.

Loved my stay!!

  • 5 of 5

The place was just as described and pictured! It was super clean and very high class. The owners were really nice! I would highly recommend staying here! It is central for a choice of things to do, although I would recommend getting a rental car or uber to take you places. It is in a cute, quiet neighborhood & the neighbors are really friendly & helpful on suggestions of things to do. It comes stocked with fresh towels & things for the beach! There was nothing to complain about!

Perfect family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family vacation! A quick 5 minute drive to the zoo, 15-20 minutes to the beach at Coronado Island, 15 minutes to the airport. The home was beautiful with new finishes in the kitchen and bathroom and was the right size for our family of 3. The owners provided everything we needed for fun (beach towels, chairs, bucket) and for practicality (stocked kitchen tools, paper towels, etc.). It was very nice to have a parking spot just for us. The home was clean, quiet and the AC worked really well. We were cool and comfortable all week. Because we have a toddler, we didn't take advantage of the spa/hot tub, but it looked very inviting. Thanks so much!

Proximity and Privacy

  • 5 of 5

I will come back to this property again because it is very close to Balboa park, has easy freeway access, and is close to restaurants in North Park. Very quiet neighborhood and well maintained apartment (no shared walls with another unit). The owner was friendly and easy to contact if we had any questions.
