Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom (Sleeps 3)

This is a very special upstairs guest house on a quiet street….full of light, beautifully decorated with West Elm and Mid-Century Modern vintage furniture with a little touch of Parisian style and my photographic art. 400 square ft, gorgeous hardwood floors, original 50's tile in full kitchen, full bath. Sunrise and sunset view through the corner windows. People always say “oh, what a lovely place. I could live here.”

All fragrance free cleaning products, non-smoking or pets. Luxury bedding, AC, WIFI and 32 inch HDTV with premium cable. Sofa turns into a comfortable twin bed (not a futon or pull out couch). The charming kitchen has the perfect “gramma” style formica table and all the cooking supplies you will need. I have set this up the way I love when traveling and I like the comforts of home only better.

The hip, historic neighborhood of South Park in San Diego has 'small town charm in the heart of the city'. No chain stores or restaurants (except for a 7/11). Wide tree lined streets with victorian to spanish homes, fabulous restaurants, yoga and fitness centers, salons, coffee shops, friendly nightlife, great shopping, full grocery store, organic and gourmet market. All within 2 to 6 small blocks of the house!

Close to everything. Two blocks to Bus 2 heading downtown to the Gaslamp, trolley, train station, and Convention Center. Across a canyon to Balboa Park or the Zoo. 10 minutes from the airport and 8 minutes to Coronado Island and the most beautiful beach for walking, swimming and catching some waves (ask me about the short cut and parking secrets). Municipal Golf Course around the corner. We are In the Car2go area. Rental bikes brought to your door. Several fabulous nearby farmers markets (my favorite) to stock up on fresh local foods.

Things to do in the neighborhood... take a nice walk or bike ride, explore boutiques, get a massage, do some yoga, have a casual or gourmet dinner, bring your guitar for open mike night or catch a band at Rebecca’s Coffee Shop, or play a little pool and dance at the Whistle Stop. Enjoy a hand crafted beer, a wine flight or visit during the four yearly Walkabout events and meet all the friendly locals, snack, listen to music and visit the shops in the evening.

Bonus- To thank you for staying with us you will receive a packet offering gifts and discounts from local merchants, available only to tenants of the South Park Guest House.

My intention is for you to be delighted with your stay, that my guest house becomes a part of your best memories of San Diego. I would love for you tell your friends and come back year after year.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed in the guest house for a week, and it was very comfortable! There was plenty of closet and drawer space and the kitchen was well equipped. The location is excellent -- a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of bars, restaurants and shops. Our host furnished soap, lotion, a hair dryer and even left suggestions and information about what to do, where to eat, etc. We appreciate being made so welcome and will gladly stay here again in the future.

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect quiet location for me and two boys, 10 and 13. One slept with me in main bed, the other on living room couch. Lovely comfy bed with sunrise at my feet every morning. Nice shower and cute retro bathroom, just our style. Short walk to Target Express, seafood truck, great restaurants and breakfasts, and bus line. Easy to park our car in front or very nearby. Helpful to have a car, but not necessary, as bus is an easy ride downtown every 20 minutes or so. Fresh lemons from lovely Luci who helped us through some sticky situations with lost wallet. Kitchen had everything I needed, even a small cooler with ice packs for picnics. Beach towels. 2 boogie boards for my boys. Aaron and his staff were responsive, too, when we ran into airline trouble and had to stay two extra nights. All transactions were as promised after working out rental agreement. I would definitely stay again.

Nice neighborhood, great location, super clean and comfortable. Will come back!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is tastefully decorated and impeccably clean! Our family of three had everything we needed for our weekend stay, even an old-fashioned Italian Expresso coffee maker, a first in my travels! The location was perfect, near Balboa Park and its many attractions. After a day of sightseeing, street parking was easy to find. I highly recommend this apartment for your stay in San Diego.

Charming Guest House...would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

We were wary of booking this unit because of the review from the prior fall. But we have grandkids in the neighborhood and the convenience made it worth the risk. Happy to report that we encountered none of the issues the prior guest cited. The home was spotless. Linens were new and clean. Shower was clean as was the bathroom.

On the upside the unit is wonderfully light and well appointed. The heater was perfect for the brisk nights we encountered and we were pleased to note that the unit could provide AC as well (having visited in the summer we have found that AC in this area is a must at that time). Kitchen had all that we needed to prep meals and we even had the grandkids over for a movie night and sleepover (the sectional was perfect for them). Luci (the owner) is so sweet, she knew we were going to have the kids over and she had popcorn and candy waiting at the unit when we arrived! We are so happy to have discovered this unit. Even if we didn't have family nearby we would come back for Luci's hospitality (and the neighborhood....so many great cafe's and restaurants).

A dirty unit in a nice neighborhood.

  • 1 of 5

The location was fine, located in a nice Neighborhood. The unit was dirty. Our feet and slippers were black from the dirty floors. The shower curtain had mildew/mold on it. The sheets smelled sour and the lower kitchen cabinet which contained the pots and pans had mouse poop in it. The front door in which you enter the unit needs to be replaced. The lock is practically stripped and the key pad entry lock is very unpredictable. Over all we were disappointed in the money we had to spend on this unit. We will not be recommending this unit or staying in it again.

Owner's Response: Cheryl, thank you for the time you took to review. I must say that I am somewhat surprised by your experience as it does not jibe with the other 50+ guests who have reviewed this unit in the last 2 years. I visited the unit immediately after your stay (and even before the cleaners arrived) and I did not find the floors to be dirty. They are older hard wood and tile (and as such will get dirty even during a short visit with the windows open) but I am sorry to say that "black" would be an overstatement. We did replace the shower curtain (an oversight from my cleaning crew). I checked all the towels and sheets and could not find any that smelled at all. I will note the we do not use any scented cleaning products (the owner has allergies to such things) so often what is a "natural" smell can seem different from a heavily scented smell if you use soap and softener normally. I also looked for and could not find any evidence of rats or pests, even after you told me where to look. Front door actually works fine (you were instructed to push the lock button twice, which extends the bolt an additional inch into the door frame). This is a wonderful mid-Century guesthouse with original fixtures and matching furnishings. It is an urban unit in a great (South Park) urban setting. My recommendation for you in the future is that you consider the setting and type of unit before booking as it seems like your needs might tend to hotel-like stays (which is fine but not necessarily always the experience that a vacation rental provides).
