Our well-appointed apartment is located on the north side of Balboa Park. The views from the apartment and the park across the street are spectacular.
The apartment's location is convenient to all that San Diego has to offer. It is walking distance to Morley Field, Florida Canyon's hiking trails, the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park's many museums and attractions. You can also walk or bike to North Park and South Park's many excellent restaurants and shops. We are just minutes to downtown, beaches, Coronado, Sea World, and the Mexican border.
The spacious (800sf) apartment is designed for comfort and includes a fully stocked kitchen, Dish TV, DVD player, stereo system, ihome connection, and free wifi. Towels and basic toiletries are also provided. The apartment has a private entrance (with a locked gate to the outside for extra security) and there is ample street parking close to the gate.
We offer a full washer and dryer, located below the apartment in a private, covered alcove.

The apartment over the garage was very comfortable, nicely decorated and suited our needs. It is also centrally located for all of the activities we had on our to do list and when we needed a day off to just put our feet up, relax and read, it was so much nicer than being in a hotel. We defiantly recommend.
You couldn't have asked for a better location and hosts. The apartment is cozy, inviting and tastefully decorated. The amenities available were nice and unexpected. I really like the notebook that was available that covered everything from how to open the doors to using the washer/dryer. There were lots of tourist spots, restaurants, grocery stores listed that come highly recommended by Todd and Kristi. We were met by Todd, who is the nicest and most accommodating host, along with Baxter and Cecil the resident family dogs (very sweet and docile). We were within walking distance of many adventures at Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo and Museum. There are canyons to hike and San Diego just introduced bike share so look for yellow bikes everywhere to grab and go. I would say you can drive to almost all of the tourist sites, beaches, and downtown restaurants within 15 minutes and it is an easy drive too. We would recommend this apartment and hope to use it again as long as our daughter is still in San Diego.

Great location, warm friendly hosts.
Lovely one bedroom apartment over garage and connected to owners compound. Located right across the street from Balboa Park and easily accessible to public transportation. The cozy bath robes very special touch. Highly recommended and would stay here again.
Great location, gracious hosts
This above-garage apartment is perfectly situated right on the edge of Balboa Park and is located in the super-hip North Park neighborhood with restaurants/bars and a grocery store nearby. There is plenty of free, on-street parking. The apartment's separate entrance through the back alley makes it fairly private; but we were lucky enough to have a chance encounter with the owners and they are super nice! The apartment has a sweet kitchen and living room, super-comfy bedroom and a nice bathroom, too -- all the luxuries you would want in a vacation rental. We highly recommend this property.
Great apartment in a good location
The apartment was exactly as described and suited our needs perfectly for our stay in San Diego. There was some fresh milk in the fridge and some kitchen store cupboard items so you don't need to buy oil and seasoning etc if you want to cook in. The kitchen was well equipped and in the information with the rental was an offer to borrow additional items from the hosts if they had out in their kitchen. Every place we visited seemed to be no more than 20mins drive away and there are a number of places to eat with 15-20mins walk. We tried both Alexander's - a great Italian and Urban Solace. Both had a good selection on the menu, good service and portion sizes more than adequate too. The park is just across the road and had plenty going off. We received a welcome email from Kristi prior to arrival giving us instructions on how to get in and then met her and Todd when returning from dinner on our first night. The two dogs we met much more often!!! We did find the bed a little on the soft side for our tastes but we do have a very firm mattress at home so I guess that's just down to individual preference - don't let it put you off unless you absolutely have to sleep on a plank!! All in all a great rental and I'd highly recommend it.
Nice location and very convenient. Todd and Kristi were very welcoming. Apartment was comfortable, we'll stocked, and very clean.
