Forbes magazine named North Park as one of America's best hipster neighborhoods, noting that culturally diverse North Park is home to Craftsman cottages, cafes and diners, coffee shops, several microbreweries, boutiques, and the North Park Farmers Market. The North Park Theater and the Ray Street Arts District are also bastions of creativity in the area'. The Los Angeles Times writes: 'North Park has all the ingredients for the cool school: It's culturally diverse and has art galleries, boutiques, trendy bars with handcrafted cocktails and local brews, and foodie-approved eateries.'

An eclectic and diverse array of restaurants, as well as independent coffee shops, can be found along the main arteries of 30th Street and University Avenue. The area is also dotted with bars and night clubs that cater to a wide diversity of patrons. Downtown North Park contains the Ray Street Arts District. Ray at Night is a gallery walk held the second Saturday of every month in North Park. It is the largest and longest running art walk in San Diego's history. Nearby, the Birch North Park Theatre reopened after major renovations in 2005. It is the home of Lyric Opera San Diego.

North Park has a Farmers Market every Thursday which has been listed as one of the top 40 in the USA. The market is located in the parking lot at University and 32nd Streets. The Spring/Summer hours are 3pm-sunset, Fall/Winter 2pm-Sunset. They feature over 35 independent vendors; locally grown produce/flowers; gourmet/ethnic foods; arts and crafts; books; and, often, live music.

Walk a few blocks to Balboa Park, restaurants, cafes, golf, community pool, tennis, recreation. 5 minutes to downtown -- Little Italy, The Gas Lamp Quarter, Seaport Village, Convention Center, the famous San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park and museums, Old Globe Theatre. 10 min to beaches and other major attractions, including Coronado Island and Seaworld.

About Beth Galdieri

We love homes, vacations, people, and customer service. Making people happy in beautiful environments is our 'thing.'

Beth Galdieri purchased this studio in 2012

Why Beth Galdieri chose North Park

When we saw this building, with its old world charm and quaint sophistication- we knew that we had to own it, renovate it- and then provide fabulous, beautiful, comfortable and 'cool' accommodations where people could relax, enjoy the Park, the Zoo, the many restaurants- all within the context of an authentic, local San Diego experience.

What makes this studio unique

This building is thought to have been owned a century ago by an historic church nearby and resided in by church members or out of town visitors. It is a beautiful building and stands out as regal yet simple. This combination of simplicity and beauty attracted us.

Unit was clean and we'll equipped. Bed was comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

Pretty much everything we needed. One thing missing is a cork screw. And the French press didn't work. There seems to be a piece missing. We had bought regular coffee which we couldn't use. So we ended up buying pods for the keureg. Other than these minor issues everything was fine. Matthew, the property manager was very helpful.

Owner's Response: Sorry about the missing cork screw and that little missing end cap for the French Press, too -- But why didn't you let us know so we could address this? We are local owners, as is our rental coordinator -- One of us would gladly have run these items over there. So please, again, dear guests, do not 'ding' us for things that you never gave us a chance to rectify. It's really impersonal. We're all over this place, but we can't possibly take a complete inventory of kitchen items after every guest, and unfortunately, occasionally someone walks off with or breaks something, and doesn't let us know.

Cozy and functional!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely adored this modern studio set in beautiful north park! The property exceeded our expectations and was super convenient to get to all of our destinations! The property manager was more than helpful and very responsive! Our only regret was to have booked a longer trip! We would definitely stay here again!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoy our stay at the condo. Everything was very convenient and it is very well located. It took us 10 min to get to Coronado beach and the zoo is even closer. The place was very clean and I would recommand it to anyone.

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $100
Damage Insurance $59
Damage Deposit $250

Rates in table are representative and may vary based on number of occupants and specific dates requested. Rates and minimum stays during holidays and special events, such as Comic-Con, are typically higher. San Diego requires that occupancy taxes be charged for stays of fewer than 31 nights (10.5%). Cleaning fee, insurance and refundable security deposit are additional. Rates are subject to change until reservation has been confirmed.

For stays of one month or more, we charge for bi-weekly cleaning, in addition to a final cleaning fee. This will not be auto-generated via a reservation request -- We will need to revise the quote to include the biweekly cleanings.

Many people ask about this: We include a third party damage protection policy in our quotes, which is a nonrefundable fee. The policy protects you and us. With the policy in place, we're able to charge a very low cash security deposit that covers minor damages (such as stained towels or linens or broken plates). The insurance policy covers more significant accidental damages (for example, to furniture, floors, appliances, counters, walls, mirrors, plumbing fixtures, lamps, window glass and coverings, other elements). The insurance also enables you to recover your security deposit in the event of a qualified incident. VRBO offers you the option of either purchasing the insurance policy we've quoted or paying an additional refundable security deposit equal to the coverage/face value of the policy. For example, suppose we are charging $250 refundable security and you opt NOT to purchase the insurance (which in this example has a coverage value of $1,500) -- Your new combined REFUNDABLE security deposit would be $250 + $1500 = $1,750. Please note that the price of the insurance policy and the coverage amount are subject to change.
