Overview

About the property

This is a very special upstairs guest house on a quiet street….full of light, beautifully decorated with West Elm and Mid-Century Modern vintage furniture with a little touch of Parisian style and my photographic art. 400 square ft, gorgeous hardwood floors, original 50's tile in full kitchen, full bath. Sunrise and sunset view through the corner windows. People always say “oh, what a lovely place. I could live here.”

All fragrance free cleaning products, non-smoking or pets. Luxury bedding, AC, WIFI and 32 inch HDTV with premium cable. Sofa turns into a comfortable twin bed (not a futon or pull out couch). The charming kitchen has the perfect “gramma” style formica table and all the cooking supplies you will need. I have set this up the way I love when traveling and I like the comforts of home only better.

The hip, historic neighborhood of South Park in San Diego has 'small town charm in the heart of the city'. No chain stores or restaurants (except for a 7/11). Wide tree lined streets with victorian to spanish homes, fabulous restaurants, yoga and fitness centers, salons, coffee shops, friendly nightlife, great shopping, full grocery store, organic and gourmet market. All within 2 to 6 small blocks of the house!

Close to everything. Two blocks to Bus 2 heading downtown to the Gaslamp, trolley, train station, and Convention Center. Across a canyon to Balboa Park or the Zoo. 10 minutes from the airport and 8 minutes to Coronado Island and the most beautiful beach for walking, swimming and catching some waves (ask me about the short cut and parking secrets). Municipal Golf Course around the corner. We are In the Car2go area. Rental bikes brought to your door. Several fabulous nearby farmers markets (my favorite) to stock up on fresh local foods.

Things to do in the neighborhood... take a nice walk or bike ride, explore boutiques, get a massage, do some yoga, have a casual or gourmet dinner, bring your guitar for open mike night or catch a band at Rebecca’s Coffee Shop, or play a little pool and dance at the Whistle Stop. Enjoy a hand crafted beer, a wine flight or visit during the four yearly Walkabout events and meet all the friendly locals, snack, listen to music and visit the shops in the evening.

Bonus- To thank you for staying with us you will receive a packet offering gifts and discounts from local merchants, available only to tenants of the South Park Guest House.

My intention is for you to be delighted with your stay, that my guest house becomes a part of your best memories of San Diego. I would love for you tell your friends and come back year after year.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed in the guest house for a week, and it was very comfortable! There was plenty of closet and drawer space and the kitchen was well equipped. The location is excellent -- a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of bars, restaurants and shops. Our host furnished soap, lotion, a hair dryer and even left suggestions and information about what to do, where to eat, etc. We appreciate being made so welcome and will gladly stay here again in the future.

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect quiet location for me and two boys, 10 and 13. One slept with me in main bed, the other on living room couch. Lovely comfy bed with sunrise at my feet every morning. Nice shower and cute retro bathroom, just our style. Short walk to Target Express, seafood truck, great restaurants and breakfasts, and bus line. Easy to park our car in front or very nearby. Helpful to have a car, but not necessary, as bus is an easy ride downtown every 20 minutes or so. Fresh lemons from lovely Luci who helped us through some sticky situations with lost wallet. Kitchen had everything I needed, even a small cooler with ice packs for picnics. Beach towels. 2 boogie boards for my boys. Aaron and his staff were responsive, too, when we ran into airline trouble and had to stay two extra nights. All transactions were as promised after working out rental agreement. I would definitely stay again.

Cozy, fun, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment in a fun neighborhood. There are wonderful restaurants and shops. It is close to the zoo and Belboa Park. Luci (landlady) was very helpful. She was available to answer my questions and supply things to make my stay better. I would stay here again. There is no on site parking, but don't let this worry you. I always found a spot within a few houses of this cute apartment.

Perfect location

Loved the location! Convenient to walk to local restaurants and a Target Express for groceries. Close to the zoo and other attractions. Very comfortable bed and just enough room in the apt for us and our grandson.

Comfy Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the South Park Guest House! It was just as we had seen in the listing—a very charming and comfortable apartment. The bedroom has a very comfy queen bed, and the kitchen and bathroom are well-equipped. The location is in a laid-back, family-oriented neighborhood with cool local shops and restaurants. Luci was wonderful, and made sure we had everything we needed, including some delicious tomatoes from her garden! Would totally recommend a stay here.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Precious apartment! We needed a quiet place for my daughter to recover from surgery, and it was perfect! Walking distance to a Target Express and a few excellent restaurants! The landlady was super sweet! Even dusted off her card table for us to do a jigsaw puzzle! Super comfortable bed and couch. Really a good size kitchen too! Definitely recommend!
