About John Reardon

I grew up in Northampton Massachusetts, a town with countless beautiful old homes and lots of woods. I spent countless days in my youth building tree forts never knowing that those 2 dynamics would intersect at this point. Upon arriving in San Diego with an interest in building and purchasing real estate, I became immediately interested in the largely neglected Victorian buildings in this area of town. This property became a labor of love for me many years ago and I hope that legacy will be carried forward by my 3 sons. My wife if Japanese, so our family often divides our time between 2 very different worlds, both with much to offer.

John Reardon purchased this Condo in 1991

                                                                  The location was not bad. The house structure was unique. There were 6 rooms which the room has big loft where have a twin bed and a queen size bed. Everything nice and clean very pleased. One issue was parking. We almost never park our vehicle in front of house.

                                                                  We drove circle around block couple times to find open spot for parking.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  I have owned this property for nearly 25 years and have never had a problem parking either next to the property or across the street. At times we have Guests who do not understand that there is availability on both sides. All of our units are completely private and self contained similar to a condominium.

                                                                  Good location and a nice clean apartment

                                                                  Eaden R.

                                                                  15 minute walk to gas lamp district and a 7 minute drive to Balboa park, the apartment is located in a nice neighborhood. It's clean and tidy. We stayed there 3 girls and we had a great time, the only thing is there was a bit of a funky smell (but bearable). Overall i would recommend you to stay in this property.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Our staff uses a scented disinfectant purchased from Costco to clean the bathrooms which most of our Guests like, but on occasion we receive a comment about. We always try to err on the side of cleanliness and hygene.

                                                                  Great location for the downtown area

                                                                  Donna R.Dubai, UAE (from Canada)

                                                                  We were a family of 4 staying at this property. We were going to Comic Con and the best thing was that we had free parking and were walking distance to the convention center or a cheap Uber ride! Our 2 adult boys stayed in the loft while we stayed on the sofa bed which was not the comfiest. We also had most dinners at the property and unfortunately there was not a proper table to sit at. There was a small glass table but only with 2 stools. So we ended up eating picnic style in the middle of the small living room. John, however, was easy to reach. We had a small issue with the air conditioner and it was fixed right away. There is also a washing machine on site and he provided and replenished the quarters needed to run it.

                                                                  The property is small and clean with great airflow in a relatively quiet area. It is perfect if wanting to explore the downtown area.

                                                                  Great location!

                                                                  Kellie S.

                                                                  The House is a beautiful place. It was comfortable and quiet.

                                                                  Robert A.

                                                                  It was a great place to stay. It was a very clean and well thought out space. We had the loft room. Our kids (9,4) said it was their favorite place to stay. It was a 10 to 15 minute drive to all the major attractions. It was a 10 minute walk into the Downtown area. We enjoyed this little spot in our heaven.

                                                                  They paid attention to all the details

                                                                  We really enjoyed our stay at this cute little place. It was clean and quiet. Every day we seemed to find another surprise that would allow us to enjoy our stay including a few boogie boards, a beach chair, beach towels, a step stool to help the kids reach the sink etc. The kitchen was stocked with the essentials and a few extras if we wanted to eat in. This was our first HomeAway experience and it set the bar high. We would definitely recommend this place. It was a great location centrally located from everyplace we wanted to visit.
