Why Brian Gregory chose San Diego

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

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.

Clean, comfortable, and well-equipped

It's about as nice a property as you can find. The title pretty much sums it up.

Very clean, and well-equipped!

  • 5 of 5

It's a lovely property, both clean and well maintained, and well-equipped for whatever manner of stay you're planning. Truly one of the better properties my wife and I have rented through either VRBO or AirBNB.

Great stay - we'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three month with two adults and a baby (one year old). The great advantage of the apartment is its location: We didn't have a car, but many things are in walking distance, e.g. supermarket, Balboa Park, great cafés, yoga and other sport facilities. A great facility for families is the North Park Community library, which is also very close.

The owners live on the same property, but they leave you all the space you need. Still, they are very helpful and accessible in case of questions. The apartment is very well-equipped, and if need be, you can enjoy even a few rainy days inside (winter 2016 was the most rainy in years :-).

We enjoyed our stay very much, and we'd come back anytime!
