About the property

Spacious penthouse offers 3 bed, 2 bath and 3,900 square feet.

This wonderful 3900 sq. foot penthouse apartment combines the perfect elements and luxury amenities to create an ideal destination in the heart of San Diego. A reunion with old friends, a family vacation or a small wedding are all possibilities when staying in the place that has it all!

A Coffeehouse and café, dry cleaner, and small market are just a block away. This unique, quiet pocket neighborhood has a lively urban chic vibe with a calming, familiar feel where people say hello when out jogging or walking their dog.

Great, unique condo with lots of room, waking distance to gaslamp district

  • 5 of 5

Top floor of a small apartment complex.

Older building (gives a charming character) that has been renovated. Comfortable furniture with great original artwork. Owner is on facility, helpful and pleasant to interact with.

If there was a downside it's not in the gaslamp district, so no restaurants right next door, so you have to be willing to walk at least ~5 blocks (~10 to gaslamp), or Uber it.

The house was clean and had everything we needed. The location was perfect for us.

On the downside, we had no WiFi the first 2 days and the upstairs bedroom was way to cold to sleep in during that time of year since there is no heating there. Two of us had to sleep on the couch in the living room instead. However, the owner was very nice and helpful.

really cool place

  • 5 of 5

Great location, well equipped, and interestingly decorated. AC didn't really work, but maybe that's common in San Diego? Great service. Would stay again.

Great Place! Would rent every year if possible

  • 5 of 5

While we were told we got the place at a bargain and the rate would change next year, we cannot say enough positive about it. Great and safe location 20min walk from gas lamp. Clean and tidy. Excellent and attentive owner.

Owner's Response: Hey guys, great to have you. Thank you for taking care of the place this is worth a lot to me. and I will let you know before i put it on the market how much were going to ask for the Penthouse, I am not going to double it but probably close. Because I know you wont wreck it it helps, I am not sure if you have a larger group too or if you were comfortable, but we have air beds and the unit next door sleeps 6, easier for me to rent to people I trust. Thank you for the nice review. I still have not opened up comicon next year but will let you know first.
