About Roberto Rosado

We own the building and live in the upstairs unit.

Roberto Rosado purchased this house in 2005

Why Roberto Rosado chose Bankers Hill

The location is extremely desirable. It feels like a neighborhood, but it is convenient to Downtown, Balboa Park and the major freeways, and walking distance to lots of great restaurants. Built in 1915, we love the charm of a well-maintained home from the early century, updated with a modern kitchen and bath.

What makes this house unique

Quite location- central location to attractions- and easy access to main roads and airport, but away from the fly path

Guestbook comments from the owner

Chris you were a very clean, considerate, quite guest. Would love to have you stay at my place any time

I stayed in this darling property for 3 months (June-Sept 2017)

I wholeheartedly echo every single positive review! They are 100% accurate and well deserved!

The location is unbeatable, the house is just PERFECT, not one thing is overlooked. The owners are a pleasure, attentive and unobtrusive.

I cannot recommend this properly highly enough!!!

Beautiful apartment and ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location-- three or four blocks from Balboa Park. We even walked all the way home from the zoo once. It is a safe, residential neighborhood and was a quick ( under ten minutes) Lyft ride from the airport. The apartment was spacious and beautifully decorated and the owners were quick to respond to our requests.

Wonderful place for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exactly as represented... large rooms, well furnished and appointed, extremely comfortable, and perfectly located. Add to that a very reasonable nightly rate, and you have an unbeatable home away. We highly recommend it.

Wonderful neighborhood & very helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at this lovely house twice in the past year. It is a very large 1 bedroom and extremely well appointed. Balboa Park is just a few blocks away and my husband could walk or take a quick bus downtown where he was working. The neighborhood is delightful, quiet, and friendly.. Lots of restaurants within walking distance or a quick drive. Parking easily available on the street. The owners are super responsive to anything you need and have gone out of their way to help us out. Next year we might need two bedrooms, otherwise we would definitely return to this lovely house for a third time.

Great location - accessible and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

Was traveling for business. Hotels were booked and/or crazy expensive. This property gave me an opportunity to stay away from the frenzy of the convention center, in a neighborhood halfway between Hillcrest and Downtown, a few blocks from Balboa Park. The apartment was very clean and well appointed. One of the owners must be into yoga/zen/meditation, as indicated by the library and decor - felt very homey. Reliable internet, television, and keyless entry. Clothes washer and dryer. Comfortable bed. Ample linens and towels. Space is as advertised. Hosts are highly responsive via VRBO site, email, and text message, and even offered suggestions for local attractions/events.
