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

Why John Reardon chose San Diego

I am hopeful that our guests will appreciate the attention to detail and uniqueness of design that has been incorporated into every aspect of this property.

What makes this condo unique

Our property is strategically located close to most of San Diego's most popular destinations. It's central location and proximity to a newly revitalized downtown, airport, beaches and parks affords our guests the best possible experience while visiting San Diego.

Great location for the downtown area

  • 4 of 5

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!

We loved our stay in San Diego! We were close to many attractions with easy access to all. Comfortable stay for our family of 4 with 2 teens. Loved having the onsite laundry facility. Definitely recommend this home!

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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Excellent location, well maintained property

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed for a week with our 3 children (7,11 & 13). This property was mainly used for sleeping- there are so many things to do nearby! Coronado Island, the Zoo, Whale Watching etc. And it's just 2 hours to LA. We were comfortable and slept well. Would definitely recommend if you are looking to experience a neighborhood space with character. Can't wait to come back!

It was "Nice"

  • 3 of 5

This property was nice and as described. The owner was friendly and helpful. I have no complaints and would consider staying here again. I would say, however, that the property just wasn't quite as nice as I expected from the pics when I checked in vs. when I booked it. You can tell it has had some wear and tear since the pics were taken. Another notable may be that the house is split up into 5 or so apartments and it looks like the garage has been converted to another living space, so just a heads up that I didn't realize until check-in. I hesitated to even leave this kind of feedback because I don't feel like I was misled, but felt other potential renters may find the feedback helpful.

Owner's Response: Our property is continually maintained to the highest standards, so not sure what issues this guest is referring to. There is additionally no garage on our property, so that observation is also confusing. He was perhaps referring to a barn that was used in the 1800's for horses and is currently used as a staging area for our cleaning staff and to store materials used. All of our units are completely private and self contained similar to condominiums.
