Fully Furnished Open-Spaced Loft In The Heart Of The Gaslamp District.
Situated right in the heart of the Gaslamp District on 5th Avenue in Downtown San Diego, this open-spaced, completely remodeled loft truly is something special. Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway for two, or a stylish bachelor pad for you and your friends, this loft is sure to exceed your expectations. Within walking distance of everything San Diego has to offer, including the hottest bars and restaurants, Petco Park, seaport village, the convention center, and many museums, parks, and shows. Wanna go to the beach? The loft is also within walking distance to many of the trolly's, buses and taxis that will take you many of the great beaches in Southern California. Our loft is situated on 5th avenue, with large windows allowing you and your guests uninhibited views of one of downtown's most active streets.
Parking does not come with the loft!!! Most of my guests park in one of the nearby parking structures and pay for daily or nightly parking. LAZ parking garage on 5th and Broadway is a popular choice, as is the NBC building. There is also a parking lot right behind the building on 6th. Parkopedia is an app that allows you to find parking and book it ahead of time. Street parking is first come, first serve, and is free on nights and Sundays.

About Travis Allen
Hello and welcome to sunny San Diego! My name is Travis Allen and I am living and working in the heart of downtown San Diego. I love VRBO because I get an opportunity to meet with people from anywhere around the world that I wouldn't have the chance to in a normal day. With that said, I look forward to meeting as many of you as I can!
Travis Allen purchased this Studio in 2015
Why Travis Allen chose Marina
What better of a city than San Diego, California, often dubbed "America's greatest city." Loft-style living spaces are hard to come by in this city, and this unit combines a large and open living space with the coziness guests look for in a downtown stay.
What makes this Studio unique
The location of 951 5th ave is one of the great attributes that makes this property great. The spacious style of the loft, along with the historic building and neighborhood it resides in, truly makes this property special.

We stayed here for a bachelor party and the location was absolutely perfect. All of the desirable bars and night life are within a short walking distance. We could easily take an Uber to the beach or wherever during the day. I highly recommend this place.
The location was great and the communication with Travis was timely and excellent. Really great loft that is a short walk from everything.
Right in the heart of Gas Lamp District
As advertised, this loft is located right in the middle of Gas Lamp District. We stayed here for 3 nights post Christmas 2017 and had a blast. The complex itself is very quiet and the loft was awesome and unique from the other Air BnB's/VRBO's we stayed at. Caleb was very responsive throughout our stay. Yes, parking is an issue, but if you have some patience, just drive around few blocks and you should be able to find free street parking. Avenues have free parking until 10 AM Mon, Wed and Fri. Streets have free parking until 10 AM Tue, Thu and Sat. Also, note that this is downtown and be prepared to hear some late night party goers down the street. I highly recommend this loft for someone who wants to experience downtown living. Stay classy San Diego!! Thanks Caleb!
Very cozy and well appointed loft right in the middle of the Gaslamp Quarter
Extremely convenient location, VERY easy to get to from the airport - we were actually able to take MTS (the local bus) from the terminal to within a block of the building. There's a supermarket within 4 blocks, so we were able to provision ourselves easily. The loft itself has modern appliances, good wifi and barebones cable television - barebones in that there are no sports channels, but we weren't there to watch television.
We caught a comedy show at the nearby Balboa theater, and went out for dinner and drinks among the many options right on 5th Ave. The MTS trolley runs down Broadway (2 blocks away), and MTS buses are easy to pickup and use to get out to the rest of the city or the beaches.
The only real negative is that the noise from the street really echoes in the unit. It wasn't especially bothersome for us until the bars on 5th Ave let out around 2AM - LOTS of street noise from rowdy folks keeping the party going on the sidewalk. I'm not sure if this is just a thing on the weekends (we stayed on a Friday and Saturday night) or if it's every night, but the noise definitely woke me up both evenings we were there. If someone planned to sleep on the couch (which is near the windows, like in the pictures) I think it would be near impossible to get any rest.
This unit is in the middle of it all, for good and bad! We would definitely stay again, but I'd probably bring some earplugs for sleeping next time.
Property was great, and Caleb was a real star!
Clean, well located and able to walk everywhere! A real gem!
Exactly as anticipated and expected
Good location - close to light rail transit and trendy eating and dining. Can get a little loud on Friday and Saturday nights - but it was to be expected given the location and the description.
WiFi did not work as suggested but the neighbouring unit uses the same passwords so it worked out fine. One small suggestion - have coffee available, not just the coffee maker.
It was a pleasure meeting you in person! Thank you for your review as well as the 4 stars out of 5.
Reviews like this are really helpful for me because it helps me improve upon the units and the guest experience. Both coffee and wi-fi should be accessible during a guests stay at all times.
Thank you again!
