This property was exactly as advertised. We were pleasantly surprised at how bright and clean it was

  • 5 of 5

This is definitely one of the best VRBO apartments we have stayed in. Very clean, quiet and convenient. Although there is no guaranteed parking in front, we always found a spot very close by. The pool is very inviting, sadly the weather wasn't pool-worthy. It is an easy drive to all major freeways and attractions.

We will return to this apartment and have already shared the info with good friends who visit often but have yet to find a good VRBO ....think they might just have found another home! Thank you for helping to make San Diego feel like home .

Perfect, would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome. It was in the perfect neighborhood, close to everything and anything. The only downfall about it though would have to be the parking, since there's not an assigned spot for this apartment, you have to find parking 2-4 blocks away, which kinda sucked, but wasn't that much of an inconvenience. We stayed for 3 nights and didn't run into any problems, no loud neighbors and it comes stocked with anything you'd need really! It definitely felt like a home away from home.

Met Expectations

  • 4 of 5

For the cost, this property is more affordable than a hotel and you have more amenities. The studio was clean, modern and had a sufficient kitchen. There is no assigned parking, this would be the only downfall. The kitchen had all I needed to cook, including some spices. The complex was quiet and serene. I would definitely stay at this location again.

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice apartment in a quiet and nice gated community in North park. it was close to many good restaurants, like Swami's and The Breakfast republic, very clean, well appointed and spacious and comforatble for an excellent price. it was one block from the #7 and #10 bus lines and very easy to travel to downtown and other parts of the city from this location. I would definitiy stay here again in the future!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This studio apartment was wonderful! I felt very safe coming and going. The hosts were friendly and attentive whenever I had questions or needed something. Comfortable bed and couch, quiet neighbors, appliances in good condition, relaxing pool, close to lots of great bars and restaurants in North Park. I never had any issues with finding street parking. I would definitely consider staying here again!

Comfortable apartment in a central location

  • 4 of 5

This is a studio apartment in a building that is primarily occupied by permanent residents. Complete kitchen fully supplied with utensils, plates, glasses, pots and pans, coffee maker, toaster - everything one needs. We were able to buy and prepare food, thereby avoid eating out most meals. The unit is in a corner facing the pool and always in the shade, which was helpful during warm days. Outstanding location, about 7 or so walkable blocks from the major North Park hub of breweries, bars and restaurants. One of our sons is a grad student at San Diego State; it was just 4 miles to his place, and a short ride in the opposite direction to Mission and Pacific Beaches. Very much enjoyed our stay.

From the Owner

Gated secure complex that surrounds a small pool and peaceful courtyard. When you're here, you forget you are in the middle of the city. Mimosas and Yahtzee on a sunny morning by the pool anyone? Our residents (and YOU) are always enjoying the community. This is the kind of place where you can be inside or out...they're both equally beautiful, tranquil and comforting. Only a moments drive from all of San Diego's enchanted offerings.
