About the property

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.

Great location, warm friendly hosts.

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

My husband and I stayed here for our yearly "romantic getaway" and we were very pleased with the apartment itself. It had everything you could possibly need and more and was nicely decorated. The bed was SUPER comfy! Our only issue (and this is not the owners fault in the least) was it wasn't as private as we would have liked. They did have a back entrance that we could slip in and out of but sound carried both ways and it felt a little awkward. Like I said this was NO fault of theirs and the owners did make it clear that the rental was indeed right over their garage so it wasn't super private. All in all we made the most of it and really enjoyed ourselves! We love trying out new places even if they might not be "perfect" for our specific getaway. Thank you Kristi (and Todd) for sharing your beautiful property with others!
