Located right at the end of Shelter Island this quaint studio condo is perfect for the sailor or water lover. Within walking distance to many restaurants, bars, marinas, cozy coffee shops,yacht clubs, bay front walking trail, and even a Sunday farmer's market. Complex has a pool, game room with pool and foosball table, and a gym on the premises with plenty of free street parking. The unit has a queen murphy bed (real mattress with memory foam topper), and a pull out futon sofa, that is most comfortable for 1-2 people but could accommodate up to 3 if you don't mind getting cozy. Small fridge, microwave, and stove top for cooking. Flat screen TV and dvd player for movie watching. Large balcony with table and barbeque that look out onto the pool deck and bay.
The condo is located approximately 4 miles from downtown San Diego and the gaslamp district, 2 miles from San Diego airport, 4 miles from Sea World, across the street from the bay, and within 2 miles of Ocean Beach. A great central location with plenty of sites to see in beautiful San Diego! The trolley and Amtrak station is located conveniently 3 miles away in Old Town San Diego, making it very easy for rail travel, or even a Coaster trip up to north San Diego county. There are also plenty of bus stops close by and plenty of taxi access with all the hotels in the area.
Clean linens and a towel for each guest will be provided. Also there are plenty of shower toiletries available for your use if you prefer not to pack these types of items (shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion, hairdryer). I have just recently done a mini remodel of my bathroom and have a brand new bathtub May 2014)!
Parking is on the street and does not cost any money, and there are usually many spaces right in front or on the street next to my complex.
New WIFI available with strong and fast signals!
If you need special consideration with check in/out times please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate you.
The surrounding neighborhood is a local sailing and fishing community with tons of restaurants, bar, coffee shops, and shops within walking distance. There are several yacht clubs and numerous marinas surrounding, which make for an excellent place for any type of boating. There is even a local farmers market on Sundays.
Public transportation in San Diego a bit tough as major attractions are a bit spread out and only connected by a bus system (there is a trolley but only within limited areas). The bus is inexpensive but can be time consuming, so if you do not plan to rent a car be prepared to spend some time getting from point A to B. There is a bus stop 1 block from my place if you do decide to go the bus route.

Karen's place was just right for my gf and I. Was exactly what we were looking for in terms of a very clean place to sleep during our stay in sd. Was even able to cook a few small meals for breakfast before we set off on our days. She was easy to contact and place was very easy to access. Great location. Perfect for 1 or 2 people but not big enough for anymore than that.
Karen's place was perfect for my son and I. The location is very convenient, parking was not a problem, and there are a lot of great restaurants within walking distance or a short drive.
Thank-you Karen for helping make our stay so enjoyable!
Karen did a great job staying in contact with me prior to visit to answer any questions about the apartment and activities to do nearby. The apartment was very clean and was located in a nice and quiet neighborhood close to the water.
This was our first experience with Airbnb and Karen helped to make it very easy for us. Her responsiveness and instructions were clear. She had a personal note waiting for us, along with a bottle of wine and chocolate - a very nice welcoming touch. The location was convenient for exploring San Diego and environs. The neighborhood was quiet and great for walking.
Great place. Unbeatable location. Karen was such a good host.. she even left out chocolates for us. Thanks so much!
Karen was really great! She had a list of great places to eat in the place and a bunch of DVD's to watch. Internet connection was easy/fast (could watch Netflix in HD). She was always readily available by text if I had any questions about the surrounding areas.
The place is really nice, exactly as pictured--in a gated complex, has an awesome pool, plenty of street side parking around, easy to drive anywhere in San Diego within 30-40 minutes. Ocean Beach is really close by too.
A Karen nos recebeu super bem e nos deixou super a vontade em sua casa, que por sinal é ótima, com boa localização, segurança, e super aconchegante! Além disso respondeu todas as nossas dúvidas e nos ajudou muito!!!Super recomendo!!
Traveler in the wilderness of life. I operate under the mantra that LIFE IS SHORT and try to live each day accordingly. I jump at the chance to get out my backpack and hop on a plane to a foreign destination. Armed with some good tunes, books, sunshine, comfy pillow, and blanket and I could be happy on a remote island.
