About Rene

I am a San Diego native. My husband and I absolutely love Little Italy and consider this home. We frequent the Farmers Market every Saturday morning, which is undeniably the best market in all of San Diego: Live music on two to three street corners, organic local produce, fresh fish, flowers, people/pet watching galore, all surrounded by restaurants and coffee shops. We love the outdoors, especially being in close proximity to the ocean. We enjoy travel, and with the airport 1.2 miles away, it is a very inexpensive taxi ride. If you would like some recommendations during your visit , we would be happy to offer our perspective as Little Italy Locals.

Rene purchased this condo in 2006

Why Rene chose San Diego

I moved to Little Italy in July 2005, and fell in love. I lived in the neighborhood for one year prior to purchasing. It's close enough to the Gaslamp and Petco park, but in a more quiet neighborhood. The minute I waked into my condo and saw the view of the Bay from the bedroom, I was sold. I'm a runner, and I enjoy running along the water, as well as to and through Balboa Park

Great place in the best location

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd winter in San Diego having spent last year near Petco park. First, we far more liked Little Italy than Gaslamp as its much more of a classier crowd and less riff raff. Second, Rene's apt is in quite possibly the best location in LI. It is literally 2 blocks from the center of LI but on a quiet street with no noise at night. It also has a fantastic view of the water and some beautiful sunsets. The apt itself is a perfectly sized 1br/ba but a little on the cozy side. We had no issues with the space but the bed is a bit tight for two people, but nothing that kept us from sleeping well. The people in the building are some of the most friendly people we have ever met and we stay in a lot of places around the world. The only real negative was the tap water had a funny taste to it so we ended up buying bottled water.

The location is also great for all the restaurants in LI and there are many to explore. Then on Saturdays, you are right next to the market which is a must-do when living here. All kinds of fresh foods and stuff that you won't see in many other places.

Rene was the perfect host and made sure everything was great for our move-in. We booked last minute and she still got everything cleaned and ready when we arrived.

Month long visitor

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect spot to stay in the Little Italy section of San Diego. It is walking distance to the zoo and to the entire downtown area as well as the waterfront.The kitchen is very well stocked with almost anything you might need. The bed is very comfortable with hidden storage underneath for your suitcase. There is a nightly sunset view from the windows and a breeze in the palm trees outside.

Other residents in the building are friendly. I enjoyed having the use of the workout room and a parking space for the car.

Wonderful stay in little Italy

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time there. Our sole purpose was to see if we could work and play in little Italy and it worked for us. So much so we met with a realtor and looked for properties and we met many people we call friends now. We also did not rent a car for the 6 weeks we were there. Excellent public transportation and can get to a lot of places on foot
