About the property

Modern & Updated One-Bedroom - Private Balcony In Master Bedroom!

This Sweet and comfortable newly renovared 1-bed 1-bath unit in San Diego is in a charming, stately home built in 1911!

The living area with queen sleeper sofa adjoins the spacious eat-in kitchen, with a private balcony directly off the king bedroom. And if that’s not enough time spent outside, head to the back yard, where a grill and outdoor dining table for 6 awaits.

Set only steps from Balboa Park, which contains San Diego Zoo, golf course and several museums, there is no shortage of things to do. Cafes and shops abound, and downtown San Diego is less than 10 minutes away.


The living area with queen sleeper sofa adjoins the spacious eat-in kitchen. Enjoy breakfast for two at the charming wooden table or step out to the balcony for a morning coffee or afternoon drink. There is also a Window-Installed A/C unit that will be available for guest use!

The 40” flat screen TV and entertainment unit with Wi-Fi promise cozy evenings in, and banks of original windows mean the space is light and airy all day. The bedroom features a luxurious California King bed with memory foam mattress and large walk in closet.

On mild evenings, make the most of the shared back yard, with an outdoor dining table for six shaded by a majestic gazebo. There are lounge chairs and bench seating as well, all surrounded by lovely greenery.

There is a shared laundry room in the lower level of the house featuring two sets of washers and dryers for your convenience.


Located in the 92104, the residence gets the best of 4 Worlds - North Park/South Park/Downtown San Diego & Balboa Park! You are only minutes from Balboa Park, which boasts the San Diego Zoo, San Diego Natural History Museum, Air & Space Museum and acres of greenway on the Balboa Park Golf Course. You are less than ten minutes from the airport and downtown San Diego, where you can check out the historic Gaslamp District, the harbor or Seaport Village. Consider taking a short ferry ride across the bay to beautiful and historic Coronado.

Prefer to stay closer to home? The surrounding tree lined streets offer numerous unique shops and restaurants including Whistle Stop, a funky bar with regular events, or head to Station Tavern for industrial chic and the best burgers in town. Pick up some groceries at the Target Express or Seven-Eleven and while you’re there, treat yourself at Eclipse Chocolate dessert shop. Be sure not to miss a visit to Rebecca’s coffee shop or Madeline’s for delicious crepes, specialty coffees and unique paninis.

Just a couple of streets over, there are bicycles available to rent by the hour and with so much to see and such beautiful weather, this provides an excellent opportunity to see the surrounding sights!

Please note that there are stairs that must be utilized to get into the unit!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We chose the place for the location as the South Park neighborhood is an awesome place to explore in SD. Lots of restaurants, shops, parks & the zoo close by as well as access to downtown, Coronado, etc. The place was perfect for my husband, daughter & I. We had everything that we needed to feel at home for the 10 days. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a safe, central place to get to know SD or like us have a perfect staycation.

Small Clean and tidy

  • 4 of 5

The rooms were fine. The neighborhood was eclectic with many food choices nearby from bistros to taverns to a food truck with seafood tacos that were to die for. I would suggest that you expand the cable a little to include at least ESPN and that you add a bureau in the closet so that there would be drawers for the un-hangable clothing. Parking was tight most nights with last one home parking a block or so away. The blender didn't work so I suffered my margueritas on the rocks , such hardship.

Awesome, Cute Spot Close To Everything!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was great and exactly as described! Very cute with some modern touches. Perfect space for me and my friends to stay the night in. Extremely close to the main hub in South Park (literally a block over) from some great restaurants and cafes. We were also less than 5 minute drive away from the main stretch of North Park - SO Many great places to eat (if you are coming to San Diego, come Hungry!). I would definitely recommend this place, had everything we need and more and it was easy to communicate with the rental manager.
