About Athena-Rae


I would love to have you as my Guest while in San Diego!

I am Native to San Diego, California the Golden State

Bo and I enjoy the San Diego life, biking, sailing, and all that San Diego offers.

Need San Diego tips? we can help with that !

Athena-Rae purchased this house in 2004

Why Athena-Rae chose San Diego

We chose this property for it's unique Location.

When we purchased this property, we knew that the City would be revitalizing our Urban Neighborhood, building a Mercado which is a Center with grocery store and satires, etc right across the street from our property, and the location was part of San Diego's NEWEST Revitalization project. and continues to add restaurants, a Brewery, shops etc..

Recently added is the "City's" Rent-A-Bike, right across the street... Rent by the hour the day, month... The bike stations are all over downtown... Rent across the street, bike to the Gaslamp / downtown area, park your Bike and return for a Bike after sightseeing..

We are less than a mile (0.93) to the Convention Center, to Petco Park, Gaslamp Quarter, Downtown, close to Seaport Village, Little Italy, Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, and much more.

What makes this house unique

Our property is across the street from the new Mercado Del Barrio (Great Local Cuisine) We are in a very unique Urban Neighborhood, with so much going on; Local Artists shows (the Root Factory), Farmers Market, take a walk to the Park, and down the Pier.

We are located by the San Diego Bay, close to the San Diego Convention Center, Centre City, East Village, and the Petco Baseball Ballpark. Adjacent to all forms of transportation and the San Diego Bay, its eastern San Diego location is immediately next to a burgeoning downtown area. We are set in an Urban Neighborhood on the Eastern edge of the Gaslamp Quarter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Word for word review from Airbnb listing

Athena and Bo were really nice hosts. From the very start, communication was very good, and while we were in San Diego they kept on being very approachable, be it with the number to a good taxi service, or the address to a nice restaurant. The appartment itself was very comfortable and fully equiped with more than we could possibly need. The supermarket in front of the house was also very convenient. We had a lovely time at Casa de Corason, especially loving the deck in the evening, and will certainly come back if we return to San Diego!

Thank you Bo & Athena Rae

Response from Bo & Athena Rae: Delphine, Bo and I are so happy you enjoyed your stay, you were such a great group, and we thank you for respecting our property and our home.. I am glad you enjoyed the balcony view.. Hope you had a little down time to have some fun, as we know you were all very busy at the Convention Center.. It was really great meeting all of you, and we would love to have you back anytime !!! Casa de Corazon gives 5 stars to Delphine and her group, Bo and I recommend them to all owners out there.. We hope to see you again, you are always welcome. Thank you again, until next time, Athena & Bo Casa de Corazon

A fantastic place to stay in San Diego!!!

  • 5 of 5

My mother, my daughters, and I stayed at Athena-Rae's and Bo's apartment for 3 nights from March 23rd-March 26. We had debated whether to try a VRBO for the first time or stay in a hotel. I am INSANELY glad we gave this VRBO location a try! There are so many reasons we loved this place:

#1. Athena-Rae and Bo!!!!! They were helpful, accommodating, flexible and easy to contact throughout the whole process. They clearly take pride in their property and try to think of anything and everything you could possible need or want during a visit to San Diego and provide it! Bo met us a gave us a detailed overview of their rental. Athena-Rae checked in with us a few days later and visiting with her ended up being one of our favorite parts of the trip! We felt like we made a new friend! She is funny and sweet and super proud of her first grandbaby, who is adorable! We just thought they were the greatest!!!

#2. Location, location, location! It took us 10 minutes to get to Coronado beach, 15 minutes to get to SeaWorld, and 8 minutes to the Gaslamp. We were able to park right out in front of the front gate the entire trip. It made loading and unloading the car extremely easy. There was an available convenient parking garage across the street, but we never had to use it. There were many new restaurants directly across the street which looked enticing. We never had a chance to eat at them since we were so busy going other places, but we wanted to! We were able to get milk, juice, etc., from the Mercado right across the street which we walked to.

#3. Their place is stocked! All of the plates and utensils are color coordinated and organized. If you have kids, they had anything you could ever want; a baby gate, Pack & Play, stroller, and beach toys. When we went to Coronado beach, we used their beach bag, chairs, blanket, and umbrella. We had a blast and were so appreciative to have these items during our beach excursion. There was any kind of spice you could want. The apartment was incredibly clean and comfortable. The pictures don't do it justice for how nice it is. My girls especially loved the "disco fireplaces" in the bedrooms.

#4. The beds are comfortable!! We all slept great!!

#5. Our security deposit was refunded the day we left.

I could go on and on. We can't thank Athena-Rae and Bo enough for making our trip one of the best ever by providing us with what was like a "second home." We hope when we come back in the future we can stay here again!!

Owner's Response: Hello Corinne & Family, WOW !!! Bo and I truly thank you for all your kind words and such a detailed review, it warms our hearts. I was so happy to get to spend some time with all of you, such a wonderful, loving, kind Family, I felt as if I was seeing a Friend I had known forever, now new friends! Your 2 Girls are beautiful as is your Family. I want to mention the following, because she didn't- We had been communicated via email and when I was in the Hospital Family waiting area, I had sent an email as her stay was upcoming, I had mentioned I was waiting for my new Granddaughter to be welcomed into the world. Her excitement for Bo, myself, my Son who is my only child and my Daughter-N-Law was genuinely apparent in her warm words and her shared excitement. When we met, her and her Family had a gift for baby Charlotte, that alone should help me explain what wonderful people they are, but wait....We shared pictures, mine all of Charlotte and their trip to LegoLand on their way to S.D. Corinne and Family, Bo and I thank you and I will be sending update pic's... You are always welcome and can't wait to see you again. Thank you for letting future Guests know more about our Unit and location, again your detailed review is amazing... Thank you . Bo and I give Corinne and Family a big 5 stars and highly recommend them to all Owners, you will be as luck as we were to have such a loving Family. Until next time, Athena-Rae & Bo and of course Charlotte Rose and her Mommy & Daddy!

The Casa is in excellent condition, well-stocked, neat and tidy.

  • 5 of 5

Athena-Rae and Bo have paid attention to all the details to provide for the comfort of their guests. The linens are high quality and there are an abundance of towels in the bathroom. The Casa is in easy walking distance to the Gaslamp Quarter and to Petco Stadium, and has a wonderful coffee shop within a stones throw from the property. If you wish to eat in, the kitchen is well stocked and there is a terrific Mercado right across the street. Rental bikes are also nearby.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will choose the Casa again if we return to San Diego for another visit.

Stay in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

The home at all the amenities you need to feel like it was your own home. Along with the fireplaces in 2 of the bedrooms and coffee to get your started in the morning. The one thing that was an issue was the bathroom had an odor that you could not mask without the exhaust fan and the door kept shut. There is a view outside the deck. When you look straight ahead you had a view of the Coronado bridge but if you look to the right it overlooks some interesting properties. Even though we appreciated it the walk through was just a little too much. The property was great and it had everything we needed.

An incredible alternative to a boring hotel room!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to experience "local San Diego" with such close proximity to the convention center and all the best local attractions! The townhome is comfortable and well equipped for a home-like stay. The only drawback for larger groups is the one small bathroom. Next - door Ryan's coffee shop is as wonderful as everyone touts. And Bo was a gracious, enthusiastic host, filling in for his wife, Athena. Highly recommend it, especially over a boring, corporatized hotel room!

Well equiped and clean

  • 4 of 5

This is a good place to stay as long as you are prepared for what it is. Inexpensive alternative to hotels with some room to spread the family out. Easy access to trolley that can take you to convention center and gas lamp district. Athena-Rae was super helpful and pleasant. Had some minor problems with parking garage.

Literally the best place in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

A few friends and I go every year to Comic Con and there are not enough words to describe how fantastic this unit and Athena and Bo are. We have stayed at casa de corazon for three years and I have also had family meet me there the last two years.

Part of our love and excitement for the trip each year comes down to staying in this place. I have openly recommended it to friends and family who may be interested in visiting San Diego as it is reasonable and luxurious accommodation for a family or group especially compared to hotels.

BEDROOMS: two of the three bedrooms are extremely spacious with ample drawers and closet space. The smaller room is ideal for a child but easily big enough for an adult (an adult stays in that room each year with no issues whatsoever, it is an adult bed and there is space in the room for belongings and luggage). The beds in all the rooms are very comfortable, definitely superior to most hotel beds, and have ample pillows and comforters giving it that luxurious fresh hotel feel. There are plenty of stands, drawers, and closets for clothes. One of the rooms faces the street and there can occasionally be the sound of a truck going past or the trolley station but it is not a very busy road and, having personally stayed in that room each time, find that turning up the ceiling fan to a medium level makes just enough gentle white noise to drown out anything from the traffic, though if you have very light sleepers you may want to consider using one of the other rooms or the comfortable beds built in to the sofas in the living room which is on the opposite end of the house.

AMENITIES: the air conditioning is perfect, there is literally everything you could ask for in the house (from laundry baskets to spices and lovely kitchen table wear to bodyboards and chairs for the beach). The bigger bedrooms have a funky digital fireplace and every room has sizeable TVs (the living room is incredible). The patio outside has a great view of the skyline and a great place to relax with friends and drinks in the evening. The beds built in to the huge sofas are also very comfortable and again fine for adults.

LOCATION: Not only walking distance to the gas lamp but a trolley station is literally a block away. The mercado boasts a delicious ice cream place, supermarket, and several takeaways. Or join the locals and SDPD grabbing their morning coffees at Ryan Bros (great frappe a and burgers too btw)!

It really is the best and you can't beat the value

Owner's Response: Hello Elina, Martin, Dom and John, WOW, what an amazing 5 star review, Bo and I really appreciate you taking the time to write such a detailed one as well. Thank you so much for letting our future Guest know more about the Unit, amenities and location. So glad you got some much needed San Diego fun time as well. Bo and I are always so happy to see you each year, you have become Family to Bo and I. I am so happy you get to see your Mom and sister each year as well. I wanted to mention they come from Scotland each year for 8 nights, this year during our conversations I had let them know Bo and I had become 1st time Grandparents. They had a wonderful Scottish Tartan dress and a Highland Cow toy for Charlotte Rose... Since she did not mention this, I wanted to, because that's how great they are !!! My Son and Daughter-N-Law thank you as well !! We are looking forward to seeing you all again for Comic-Con 2017. Bo and I give Elina and all a big 5 stars, we highly recommend them to all Owners. They are very warm, friendly and just fun to be around! See you next year, Athena-Rae & Bo

We use this sites secure payment system *HomeAway Pay

We require a 25% down payment to secure and block your dates, and the balance due 30 days prior to your arrival.

*If your dates are less than 30 days, the full amount would be due at booking.

Property Damage Protection:
The $59.00 Property damage policy is REQUIRED on each stay, it will cover you up to $1500.00 in accidental / unintentional damage, there is NO deductible. We know accidents happen. The payment system will now state you can also pick a refundable damage deposit equal to the $1500.00 the property damage policy covers. Please do NOT select the $1500.00 to be charged to your card and added to your payments, this is not a hold placed on funds, it is a charge to your card and we only accept the $59.00 Policy. Thank you for your understanding, if you have any questions at the time of booking, please let me know.
Refundable Deposit:
The $200.00 Refundable Deposit, is a "Security" deposit, as the $59.00 Property Damage protection does not cover any excessive cleaning/filth issues, unfortunately that is the sites wording and we are unable to edit their pre-set verbiage, when a quote is sent, it is listed as a "Security Deposit" returned within 24-48 hours after check-out, the refund will be credited to whichever form of payment was used. If you have any questions please let us know in your inquiry, thank you.
