Refined. Charming. Hillcrest Delight.

  • 5 of 5

The living space was perfect. Everything worked perfectly. This luxury studio was situated perfectly for walking about, the accommodations were designed with attention to detail. The shower was awesome, and things like the cabinet drawers closed with precision. The restaurants all around were delightful and delicious. This space was amazing. Would definitely stay here again next time.

Location and nice little place!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed here end of May, early June 2017 and we were so happy to arrive after staying in a hotel at the front end of our vacation. The flat/apartment is nicely appointed, contemporary, well cared for -- it was perfect for us. We really took in the San Diego area in a radius of 30-35 miles so found it to be a great centralized location, and, at the same time, we felt we were part of a neighborhood (which we really like). Parking next to the building was a nice feature and we felt very safe in this neighborhood. Trader Joe's was not far away and there were more restaurants to try than we had days to try them! Tom was very responsive to any questions we had prior to our arrival and after and it was all very easy to arrive and depart. The mattress was extremely comfortable and the K-cup coffee pot was a nice feature! This was our first experience in San Diego and we thought it was a wonderful place to visit. Some of our adventures included the Cabrillo National Monument and tide pools, The San Diego State Fair, Del Mar Beach, Torrey Pines State Park, Tijuana, Imperial Beach, numerous craft breweries (including Stone Mountain, Coronado, Ballast Point and Modern Times) Balboa Park and it's many cultural features, Petco Stadium for a Padres/Cubs game, the San Diego Safari Park, Hotel Coronado, Little Italy (we felt like we saw a lot!). You can't go wrong here -- it's just a great little place and the airport is only 10 minutes away!

Great location with 20-30 restaurants within a 10-15 minute walk. 15 minutes to downtown if you are in town for a conference. Has all the basics and one parking spot. Would definitely rent again!

Comfortable condo in a great area.

  • 4 of 5

Very much enjoyed this property. It's a very comfortable condo in a great walkable area. Grocery stores, restaurants, etc very close. Balboa park is wonderful for hiking. Easy Uber rides around the city...always an uber available in the area. Nice to have off street parking spot as well. It's wonderful to have a full functioning kitchen!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay here. It is conveniently located to shopping and restaurants. It is also near the freeways for easy travel to other areas. It is a sweet little apartment with everything you need. Some might consider the bedroom small but who cares? I'm a tall person and I'd rather have a large bed. It is very close to Balboa Park, museums and the zoo. We will definitely stay again.

Excellent little apartment in heart of Hillcrest

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this well appointed apartment and, as was true the first time, we were very pleased with our stay. Perfect location, nicely decorated, close to many very good restaurants, off street parking, which really helps in this popular and crowded neighborhood - the perfect size for two people. Our son lives right around the corner so the location is so convenient. Balboa Park and the museums are within walking distance. Check in and out very easy. If you are driving it is very easy to get to the airport from the apartment without even using the freeway . We will stay here again when we return to San Diego.
