We rented 3 apartments together from Kate and Terry for a conference. Kate and Terry were extremely helpful and nice to work with when booking the place. While we were there, we met Kate briefly who was very friendly. The apartment was well-stocked with kitchen items, linens, towels, and toiletries. They even provided quarters for laundry! All in all, the amenities were great and the apartment itself was pretty close to the gaslamp district and balboa park. Also, Karakatoa is a cafe just around the corner from the apartment and it is adorable with great bagels and coffee. I highly recommend it.
Thank you Cassie! We try to think of all the little things that you need when you travel! We want it to feel like a home away from home. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Breakfast at Karakatoa is definately one of our favorite things as well You are welcome back anytime Thank you Kate and Terry
Nicely decorated apartment, well maintained with nice appliances.
Location easily accessbile by car to all the main attractions, the coin laundry is literally 500 meters away, convience store and many places to eat nearby.
Kate and Terry were wonderful hosts who responded to all inquires in a timely manner. The location of the apartment is close to the main attractions and the apartment itself is wonderfully cozy and clean. It's a great place to stay and we'd have no hesitations about rebooking this place when we visit San Diego again.
Everything is new and very clean. Terry was very responsive to the questions we had. The apartment is in a great location, minutes from downtown, Hillcrest, the Zoo and North Park. It's very quiet, too. There are some stores and places to eat within walking distance. Parking on the street is not always easy so it's nice to have the garage. However, if you are bringing a large truck or SUV, it might not fit. Check the size first. Overall a great experience! Highly recommended.
My boyfriend is a chef so we have pretty opposite schedules and no days off together. Which all is to say that when we can get 3 days off for vacation, we want to pack as much fun, relaxation & good food/drinks in as possible!
Terry was a pleasure to coordinate with and always very prompt in his responses. When we got to SD (from LA)- the apartment with 'Tropical Ambiance' was truly an amazing retreat! We brought our dog Dexter, who seemed right at home- much more comfortable than a hotel.
It's close to Balboa Park (museums, zoo & cafe) as well as to all of the amazing gastropubs & restaurants/bars in the South Park, North Park & Univ. Heights area. It's not far from the dog beach or park in OB/PB. We were only going to stay 2 nights but the bed was so comfy I was able to convince my (picky) boyfriend to stay a third night. The AC worked well & when it's cool enough outside, there are windows in the living room and bedroom. Showerhead and appliances were all top of the line. We ran into Terry and he is indeed jovial. I hope we can make this trip to SD a tradition- and when we do return, we'll definitely want to stay at the apartment with 'tropical ambiance!'
There is AC, Kitchen, Nice Shower Head

Beautiful view from living room with 25 foot Birds of Paradise.
Could have been in Hawaii with all the foliage.
Ask for an orientation with owner. There are 5 units. I didn't know where the laundry room was. The coins in the cup in the apt were not there (12 quarters for complete laundry) Can you use the BBQ downstairs? Unknown...
AC unit there is loud, but I'm a heavy sleeper so it didn't bother me.
Staying for the min of 2 nights, the $75 cleaning fee really bumps the nightly average rate up - Stay longer so that does not become a factor.
Bring some ground coffee with you - there is a coffee maker.
1 Adult or 2 Kids on Foldout in living room
The owner did a great job getting me in on a same day booking.
Very clean and nice apartment, with a great location. It was great to (email hidden), chair and crib in the unit, as well -- everything a family of three needs for a trip to San Diego.
