South Park, San Diego, CA, USA
  • House
  • Bedrooms1
  • Sleeps3
  • Bathrooms1
  • Half Baths0
  • Minimum Stay2 - 4 nights

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom (Sleeps 3)

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.

          Charming Guest House...would stay again!

          Vacation Rentals by Aaron B.-

          We were wary of booking this unit because of the review from the prior fall. But we have grandkids in the neighborhood and the convenience made it worth the risk. Happy to report that we encountered none of the issues the prior guest cited. The home was spotless. Linens were new and clean. Shower was clean as was the bathroom.

          On the upside the unit is wonderfully light and well appointed. The heater was perfect for the brisk nights we encountered and we were pleased to note that the unit could provide AC as well (having visited in the summer we have found that AC in this area is a must at that time). Kitchen had all that we needed to prep meals and we even had the grandkids over for a movie night and sleepover (the sectional was perfect for them). Luci (the owner) is so sweet, she knew we were going to have the kids over and she had popcorn and candy waiting at the unit when we arrived! We are so happy to have discovered this unit. Even if we didn't have family nearby we would come back for Luci's hospitality (and the neighborhood....so many great cafe's and restaurants).

          Owner's Response:

          Iris, thanks for the review...I will check to see if we can get this moved to your account...I forgot that we booked this for you through our account to keep it secret from your H! Glad we could do that for your surprise anniversary trip for him. Until next time!

          A dirty unit in a nice neighborhood.

          cheryl m.

          The location was fine, located in a nice Neighborhood. The unit was dirty. Our feet and slippers were black from the dirty floors. The shower curtain had mildew/mold on it. The sheets smelled sour and the lower kitchen cabinet which contained the pots and pans had mouse poop in it. The front door in which you enter the unit needs to be replaced. The lock is practically stripped and the key pad entry lock is very unpredictable. Over all we were disappointed in the money we had to spend on this unit. We will not be recommending this unit or staying in it again.

          Owner's Response:

          Cheryl, thank you for the time you took to review. I must say that I am somewhat surprised by your experience as it does not jibe with the other 50+ guests who have reviewed this unit in the last 2 years. I visited the unit immediately after your stay (and even before the cleaners arrived) and I did not find the floors to be dirty. They are older hard wood and tile (and as such will get dirty even during a short visit with the windows open) but I am sorry to say that "black" would be an overstatement. We did replace the shower curtain (an oversight from my cleaning crew). I checked all the towels and sheets and could not find any that smelled at all. I will note the we do not use any scented cleaning products (the owner has allergies to such things) so often what is a "natural" smell can seem different from a heavily scented smell if you use soap and softener normally. I also looked for and could not find any evidence of rats or pests, even after you told me where to look. Front door actually works fine (you were instructed to push the lock button twice, which extends the bolt an additional inch into the door frame). This is a wonderful mid-Century guesthouse with original fixtures and matching furnishings. It is an urban unit in a great (South Park) urban setting. My recommendation for you in the future is that you consider the setting and type of unit before booking as it seems like your needs might tend to hotel-like stays (which is fine but not necessarily always the experience that a vacation rental provides).

          Cute apartment in South Park

          Jacob F.

          Great location, reasonable price, and a quaint apartment.

          Owner's Response:

          Glad you enjoyed everything Jacob!

          Cozy, fun, relaxing

          Mary K.

          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.

          The house was a cute single bedroom with a spacious living room and good kitchen.

          Shannon A.

          This locations was perfect for what we wanted to do in San Diego. It was a great neighborhood close to the Zoo, Balboa Park and beaches. The house was a good fit for us and our daughter. The land lady was super helpful and accommodating. We would come back here again!

          Owner's Response:

          Happy to hear how you and your family enjoyed the neighborhood and all that is nearby. Thank you for the review, and we do hope to see you on your next San Diego vacation!

          Perfect location

          Melissa C.

          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.

          Owner's Response:

          Glad you found everything you needed and the attractions so easily accessible. Looking forward to hosting you next time!
