Property description

The charming apartment in University Heights on the 2nd floor of a 2-unit building includes 2 bedrooms with queen beds and 1 separate bathroom. Each and every room includes seaside decor to remind you that though this great neighborhood is not on the beach, you aren't far from our many beloved beaches. The hopping business district of University Heights is a 5 minute walk away. There is an amazing Sunday farmers' market 4 blocks away in Hillcrest. Grocery shopping (Trader Joe's, Ralph's, Sprouts market) are all within walking or biking distance. But when you are not interested in cooking, there are several great restaurants just 2 blocks away!

An AC unit and ceiling fans in each room allows guests to keep cool. There is heating for those rare cold days in the winter.

We also have the home outfitted with a flat screen LCD TV with cable TV programming as well as Netflix, MLB (provides all MLB games for baseball fans) and many other Roku channels in addition to an included WiFi network for internet access for our guests.

For any tiny vacationers, we have a pac-n-play, highchair and toys.

You can be assured that we will strive to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable.

Car: Recommended

University Heights is a neighborhood located in Central San Diego. It is adjacent to the neighborhoods of Hillcrest and North Park. There are a number of restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques and other eclectic businesses within walking distance of our home. University Heights is centrally located and allows visitors to explore the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park to the immediate South. The larger commercial district of Mission Valley sits in the valley below University Heights and the beaches (Ocean and Mission) are a short 15 minute jaunt to the West. Downtown San Diego and all it has to offer, is a short ten minute drive South.

Year Purchased: 2009

About: Our family purchased the home as an investment in 2009. We recently decided to remodel the apartment and turn it into a vacation rental. The location is perfect for out-of-towners in love with (or ready to fall in love with) San Diego. We certainly have enjoyed living in SD both when we were young and single, then as a dating couple, and now raising our kids here.

Why University Heights, San Diego, CA, USA:
University Heights is full of unique restaurants and cafes and is close to Hillcrest, the downtown/Gaslamp district, Little Italy and Balboa Park. Our guests can take advantage of a great walking neighborhood where going out for a meal or coffee does not require getting into a car. For families with kids, Trolley Barn Park is an easy walk from the home. World renowned San Diego Zoo is less than 5 minutes by car. Our guests can also take advantage of the free summer concert's in the Trolley Barn park, Padres baseball at Petco park and beaches within a 15 minute drive from the home. The US/ Mexico border is approximately a 30 minute drive from the home for those wanting to explore our neighbor to the South.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
- Each room features seaside decor to remind you that you are not far from our many beloved beaches. - Pac n play, queen aero and twin bed cushion available. - Walking distance to local restaurants and park. - Parking space. - Air mattress available. It is the 3rd bed in addition to the 2 queen beds (1 in each bedroom). - Very close to Hillcrest and its commercial district: Trader Joes, Ralphs, Whole Foods, Sprouts, etc. - Amenities for babies/toddlers: high chair, booster seat, pac n'play, toys & books) - Small balcony for two.
