Perfect stay in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this spacious, well equipped, and immaculate apartment for two months. The king bed is extremely comfortable, and our daughter, who slept on the sofa bed for three nights, gave a rave review of that bed as well. I love to cook so the well equipped kitchen was a dream. I even had the necessary tools to bake during our stay. That attention detail made this rental a real dream. The view and location can't be beat. The location has all the advantages of a big city stay, but the serene quiet of the eleventh floor was great. Everything you need is a quick walk down the street as well as rental car offices when we needed a vehicle. I recommend this unit without a doubt!

Where do you live?

Excellent property, squeaky clean, first quality throughout.

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful condo in one of the prime locations in San Diego. Everything is high-quality. There is a beautiful kitchen with Viking appliances. The entire unit is obviously very well cared for and after meeting the owner, it is easy to see why. Kathy takes great pride in her property and reacts to any request promptly.

We stayed one month and it was difficult for me to leave. The stay seemed much too short and we left numerous "walk to" restaurants to test on our next visit. As always, San Diego charms with its beautiful setting, perfect weather and an abundance of activities including Balboa Park, likely the best urban park in the country...maybe the world.

The fact that Kathy's condo is booked for almost the entire year in advance is indicative of what her guests think of it. We certainly will be looking at our schedule for an opportunity to return.

Excellent... again!

  • 5 of 5

For the second consecutive year, my wife and I rented this condo for a period of seven weeks. And we just made our reservation for another seven-week visit next year. Although these commitments speak for themselves, we would be remiss if we did not underline Kathy's thoroughly professional, reliable, and considerate approach in the management of this quiet, ideally-located, and very well-appointed unit.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd year I've rented the Gaslamp condo from Kathy and it has been amazing every year! The condo is in the heart of the Gaslamp and has easy access to most freeways, so getting around the city is pretty quick. The condo is maintained in the best possible manner and renting from Kathy is a dream. She is always there if you have questions and checks in regularly to make sure everything is going well. The restaurants and attractions around the condo provide terrific options for dining and getting out to see the city. Between the comforts of the condo and the attention to detail from Kathy, this truly feels like a home away from home. If you're looking for city living and a comfortable stay, rent it now for a great time!
