About Mike Apodaca

I live in the suburbs and own this in town unit that I use for friends and family. In addition, I rent to select guests. I live in the area and am virtually always available for questions or emergencies. Since I use the unit, I equip and maintain it with the best care and furnishings.

Mike Apodaca purchased this condo in 2011

Why Mike Apodaca chose San Diego

This unit is arguably the most desirable in the building. It is top floor with a stunning view of the convention center, water, and some of the most iconic buildings in the city. It is also one of the few units with a true cantilevered exterior balcony. It is located at the center of the activities down town, literally a zero minute walk to some of the cities finest eateries.

What makes this condo unique

You can enjoy the view of the action including a direct view of the pool at the Hard Rock Hotel across the street, then retire to shut dual paned windows and central air, rendering the unit a surprising degree of quite. Two blocks from the convention center, walking distance to 'everything'. One parking space in the building.

Best location in downtown

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed a month in Mike's condo. It is located in the best location in downtown San Diego, with easy accessibility to stores, restaurants and transportation. The condo was clean and comfortable. The building is safe and quiet. Not to mention the view....a great bird's eye view of downtown and views of the water. Communication with Mike was easy, and he was very accommodating. We had a great stay!

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The condo location has to be the best for the Gaslamp and for anyone that wants to be close to the Harbor, convention center or Petco park. The condo is also on the top floor of the building with an amazing and beautiful balcony view. I hope to stay here again soon!
