About Craig Crosby, Owner/Manager

We have lived in San Diego on and off since 1994. We bought this house in 2004. Love the house and the neighborhood. We both work downtown and appreciate the easy commute to downtown by either car or bus.

Craig Crosby, Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2004

Why Craig Crosby, Owner/Manager chose South Park

After months of home searching, we fell in love with this house as soon as we saw it. It has charm, a good vibe, and is welcoming. We have outgrown the house since having a 2nd child, as well as having family visiting from out of state. We still live in the area about 7 blocks away. We love this house so much that we couldn't bear to sell it and decided to hang on to it and give others a chance to enjoy it for a few years. We may well return to it once our nest is empty.

What makes this house unique

Centrally located with shopping and restaurants around the corner, or a short commute via car or mass transit to your vacation activity of choice.

An easy visit to South Park

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed for a visit to the South Park area was waiting for us at the bungalow on Ivy Street. The walkable neighborhood is very peaceful and we found plenty nice restaurants and grocery stores just a short walk away. It's close enough to the major connectors that moving around the city from the location was a breeze. The property was satisfactory in all areas and we'll certainly consider it our "go to" for future trips.

Cute house, great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our Christmas-time stay in San Diego. It was one of the most well-equipped vacation rentals I’ve stayed in and was perfect for our family of four. The kitchen is great, the neighborhood is quiet but vibrant, and the house, although small, has a great flow from the front to the back yard, so feels more spacious than it is. The location is also central—about 10 minutes to Balboa Park and downtown, and in a very walkable neighborhood with Target and a 7-11 a couple of blocks away. The owner/manager is very nice and helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

The house was simply adorable!

  • 5 of 5

On our arrival we were greeted by Donna, her two children and a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers. Our stay at the house was one of our best yet in San Diego. The house was perfect for our family of four. It was clean, nicely decorated and extremely comfortable. The yard was just the right size for my girls to play and the jacuzzi was a hit with the whole family. Love love love the French doors in the back of the house which allowed the cool night time air to come in. The house was equipped with all the necessary items we needed to cook and clean. We highly recommend giving this charming house a try. We look forward to staying here again.

Thank you Craig and Donna for everything.

Great place! Walking distance to great restaurants and bars! Craig was very accommodating and pleasant. We were driving down and arrived early and needed to check in as we had our dog with us- he met us early to give us a tour and the keys many hours before scheduled check in time. We were very pleased with our overall stay! Also the hot tub is great! Thanks so much Craig :)

Great house in a phenomenal location.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for my family with two young kids. House has nice backyard, great hot tub. Nice kitchen for cooking as well if you can abstain from all the local restaurants.

You can easily walk to numerous restaurants, bars and a grocery store (Target Express) is only a block away. My wife even found a local yoga studio she went to while we were there. 5 min drive to the Zoo/Balboa Park, 15 min to Coronado.

Make sure to stop in at Tacos Perla and the South Park Brewing Co.
