The Space

Modern, spacious and sunny loft in the heart of Gaslamp. Walk to the best nightlight San Diego has to offer at night! Downtown is a great jumping-off point to discover San Diego: start off by taking a brisk morning walk down by the bay, visit the San Diego Zoo in Balboa Park or Sea World, grab a wonderful dinner at the many restaurants located in the historic Gas Lamp district, then end the night on top of our beautiful rooftop bars that overlook San Diego bay.

Location wise:
* 15 minutes from the airport (by cab, also the 992 city bus drops you off one block from my place)
* Public transportation: trolley station is one block north
* Convention center is a 15 minute walk, a 10 minute trolley ride, or a 5 minutes cab ride
* Balboa Park is just a 15 minute walk to the north (Go see the pandas at the San Diego Zoo!)

Sleeping: (Floors are cement, not ideal for floor sleeping)
* California King-sized bed (sleeps 2)
* Full-sized futon sofa bed (sleeps 1)

  • This was a great AirBnb experience. Roy set everything up perfectly, no problems with anything. The place was very clean and everything was prepared perfectly. I always rely very much on a nice kitchen and fast internet connection, and both were flawless. The location is great. It's right near the action, but being a few floors up you also feel a bit of serenity above the busy street. The apartment was a great size and there was a comfy bed to relax in at the end of the day. I would highly recommend this place to anyone searching for a comfortable stay that is within walking distance to some great places around the San Diego city centre.

  • We had a wonderful experience! A very nice and cozy loft, conveniently located in Downtown SD. It's easy to get form there to anywhere in the city by public transport. If we are back to SD we'll definitely go back to Roy's apartment!

  • We had a great time in San Diego while living in the vibrant Gaslamp district. The location of Roy's apartment is perfect! The bus-stops as well as the metro lines were very nearby and easy to ride with a day- or week pass which you can purchase at the local Muni (public transport) store. Unlimited tap and ride.

    We were only in SD for a few days. We enjoyed our city tour taking the classic tram, had fun at Seaworld, and visited Fashion Valley for shopping. We also went to the Padres game at the PETCO stadium, great atmosphere! We could even walk to the stadium from Roy's.

    Besides, we enjoyed watching movies and documentaries from Roy's DVD collection. The apartment is very spacious, huge windows with lot of light coming in, it has everything you need. Roy was a great host and organized everything very well. I would highly recommend staying at Roy's place when visiting San Diego.

  • We loved Roy's apartment! It is the perfect home base for experiencing San Diego. It's walking distance to tons of great restaurants, bars and shopping. And it's a quick drive over to the beaches. The apt is clean and a good size for the city. The bed is very comfortable. Roy has done a nice job decorating and stocking his home with everything a guest could need. We really enjoyed his expansive movie collection and books for those nights we didn't want to go out. We didn't meet Roy, but stayed in touch by email. He was very responsive and clear. We highly recommend staying at Roy's place while in San Diego!!

  • Roy did his best to organize our stay, everything worked out fine.
    Place is large and in the middle of action in gaslamp. Very convenient location. Cool looking loft, nice building. We had great time.

  • Roy's apartment was cozy and spacious and we had a great time in San Diego! If we were going back there, we would definitely rent it again since the location was great and all the useful facilities (like dryers, washing machine, kitchen) were available. Thanks Roy!

  • Very nice stay. Large studio apartment is conveniently located within the Gaslamp area of San Diego. It has an open feeling with abundant natural light throughout. Although the host was out of town for our stay everything was taken care of for our arrival and just as promised. I believe Kim's studio an excellent value and I would not hesitate to schedule a return visit.
