Property Details

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Read the reviews, this is the most reviewed property in downtown San Diego, could that many guests be wrong?

Visit the website see link below for over 50 pictures and more detailed information. There isn't another home like this for rent on a short term basis in Downtown San Diego. This is a single family home with a private attached garage. The address is 837 10th Ave, San Diego, CA 92101 . It was designed by a well-known San Diego Architect and a Las Vegas Interior Designer, using only high-end finishes and materials. No expense was spared! The entire home was gutted from top to bottom and was never intended to be a vacation rental. It was finished to be a unique second home. I If you choose to rent from me, know the little details will be taken care of. There will be coffee, shampoo, conditioner, soap, laundry and dishwasher detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, etc. provided for your stay. This may sound like common sense, but I stay in vacation rentals often and I am amazed at how the small things get overlooked even in expensive rentals. My goal is not to meet your expectations, but to exceed them. It is easy to make a place look great in a couple of photos, but there will be no unpleasant surprises here. Look at this list of features that follows!

2 bedrooms/3 bathrooms - 3 unique levels, 1,177 Sq Ft (plus patio and garage), 63' Plasma in main room,500-Watt Surround Sound w/ ipod dock, Wii with games including Guitar Hero - 2 guitars,Blue Ray DVD Player with Internet, Premium cable with DVR, Wireless Network, Complete work desk with Dell XPS computer for your use dual monitors, printer, scanner, etc, 37' LCD TVs in both bedrooms, California king bed in master, Queen Murphy bed in downstairs room, New Simmons Beautyrest mattresses, Full-Size Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer, Master Bath with rain shower/body sprays, Westin Hotel's dual-head shower heads in both showers, Commercial cooking range, Top of the line infrared gas grill on patio, High-end window coverings including black-out shades in both bedrooms

Note: The garage will accommodate vehicles up to 200 inches long which is 95% of vehicles, it will not fit a Suburban or Lincoln Town Car etc.

About the Owner

I purchased this home as a second home with no intention of renting of it. I completely gutted it and it took over a year and a half to complete the extensive remodel which include everything from flooring, paint, new kitchen, bathroom addition, doors, fixtures, art, furniture etc. Close attention was paid to every detail. I have rented many vacation properties and been disappointed, there will be no disappointments here.

Ideal Access to SD Convention Center

  • 5 of 5
Two of us stayed at the SD Row Home during a 5-day conference at the SD convention center. This was the perfect place to relax after a long day's work. Great access to the Gaslamp District for lunches and dinners (I'd recommend the Knotty Barrel and Hopping Pig for an almost unlimited selection of SD craft beers), but with a local grocery store only a couple of blocks away, it was easy to cook for ourselves when we got tired of eating out. We walked most places but easy access to San Diego's Metro Transit was just a couple of blocks away. Plus, we paid less than half of what it would have cost us to stay in one of the conference hotels, with more space and equal or better quality. JD was incredible to work with. Anytime we contacted him with questions or concerns, he or his staff got back to us in a very timely manner. Looking forward to returning the next time I'm in San Diego.

Conference at Convention Center

  • 4 of 5
We decided not to stay at one of the designated hotels for our work conference. Instead we booked this stylish Row Home for our conference.

All the amenities were as promised and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We even got in lovely walks every morning and evening as we strolled the short distance to and from the convention center. On these walks we discovered wonderful dining and shopping opportunities.

Sharing this home also provided us opportunities to Team Build and we found a true chef among us (not me).

We will be back!!!

The best home rental I've ever stayed at

The best home rental I've ever stayed at
  • 5 of 5
We had the most amazing experience staying at JD's home. It was a bachelorette weekend in SD with 6 of us girls. The house was extremely spacious, and there were enough beds for everyone (2 regular beds, 2 extra air mattresses). The inside decor was very beautiful, felt like we were staying in a 5-star hotel in Vegas. Everything was within walking distance.

JD was a great host! He was able to let us check-in early since we had such early flights. We were so grateful to not have to carry our bags around SD while waiting to check-in. That was very sweet of him! He was very fast at responding our texts and questions. Also, the house is fully loaded, so if you forgot shampoo or conditioner or towels, it's all there! JD made our stay extremely convenient and unforgettable. If I ever come back to SD, I will definitely book this place again!

Great Bachelor Party Weekend

  • 5 of 5
The location is perfect, right in the heart of the gaslamp district. We walked to awesome restaurants and bars every night of our stay. We had six people staying there, so we used the aerobeds provided by JD, which were top of the line and very comfortable. We set up a poker table in the middle of the living room so all of us could watch the big screen TV while we played. Everything in the condo was top of the line. Truly a great weekend and a great place to stay.

Perfect girls weekend

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a girls weekend. The condo was perfect! Super clean just as it is pictured. We felt safe there. The condo is a few blocks from where all the action is in the Gaslamp district so the foot traffic is minimal. The urban street noise can be hard to get used to but the provided ear plugs helped. The garage is small but accommodated our Fiat 4 door rental easily. The condo is in walking distance to all the fun attractions downtown. Would definitely recommend this condo to my friends and family.

Great location! Amazing space!

  • 5 of 5
House was absolutely beautiful. The pictures stay very true to what the house is like. Great location with many restaurants close by, bar district and stadium is within walking distance.
Right before we arrived the property manager called me to walk me through the key code process. The owner emailed me after the first night to make sure things went smoothly and was in contact with me after my stay.
The street noise is a little loud if you aren't used to the city sounds, but they left some ear plugs for the guests in the lower room and we didn't have a problem. The garage is very very small, definitely only for compact cars. Street parking wasnt a problem for us though.
Overall it was a fantastic experience and I would definitely stay there again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review, glad you enjoyed the home. The garage can accommodate any vehicle up to 200 inches which over 90% of vehicles. You do need to have someone guide you in at least the first time.


From the Owner

I bought in this location because I love downtown San Diego. This home was selected because it is one of the few single family homes downtown. That meant I could paint it bright green and rent it weekly without the worry of a home owner's association. The interesting style of these homes won numerous awards for the builder. It features tilt up concrete construction. I liked the fact that the garage is attached and I do not have to go through a public elevator to get into the unit.

From the Owner

Attached garage single family home not a condo, there is no home association to worry about. Every HOA in downtown prohibits vacation rentals of less 30 days, people do it anyway but my tenants do not have that worry.
