Instructions for access to the unit will be sent on booking (or close to your stay). We'll never be residing at the unit during a stay. Our goal is to let you enjoy the place and the city and surroundings. However we will always try to be available in some capacity to provide guidance or help whenever needed.
East Village is the fastest growing (residential and commercial) area of the city but remains its own unique neighborhood. East Village represents a unique blend of trendy, artistic, and modern. Other than the ball park, there are many restaurants, bars, and shops all within walking distance including, but not limited to, The Bay, Convention Center, Seaport Village, Marina and Gaslamp. Also, Coronado, Littly Italy, Golden Hill, Hillcrest, North Park, and Old Town are a 5-10 minute drive and beach communities (OB, PB, Mission, La Jolla) between 10-20 minute drive.
Many restaurants and bars are within walking distance of our condo (all the way to Gaslamp). Additionally Car2Go is headquartered in East Village, and there are plenty of Uber cars and taxi's in the area. The trolley is also located on the backside of the building waiting to take you to Old Town and beyond.
A trolley station is on the back side of our building. Uber, Lift and Taxi's are also always readily available.
Noise - Since the unit is part of a condo building, we only ask that you keep late night noise levels reasonable (sound travels with backdoor open) We would expect the same from our neighbors.
Pets - Pets (preferably small) are allowed, but please let us know so we can provide any guidance / insight that would be helpful with your stay (and for us cleaning).
Smoking Not Allowed. As advised earlier this was our home and one day may be our home again. Smoking is not allowed in our condo. But, outside of the building there is plenty of space to hang out enjoy the sights and smoke if needed.
Matt and Ashley were great hosts. The place is located at the edge of Gaslamp. Everything was within walking distance and even Balboa Park and the Zoo was a 1.5 mile walk away. The dedicated parking was very helpful because we drove to many of the sights outside of town.
The condo is exactly as advertised: very comfortable beds, great entertainment system set up, new appliances, etc. It was pretty quiet at night, especially considering it is in downtown. Both Matt and Ashley were responsive to my texts and emails. We would absolutely try to stay here again the next time we visit SD.
Matt was very accommodating with arrival and departure times. He was very responsive to questions and is a great communicator.
The unit is nicely furnished and in an ideal location for walking. Many restaurants in a short walk away.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in his unit while in SD.
Matthew was a great host. He was very friendly and welcoming and always available for any questions. His welcome pack was very informative and easy to follow.
The location was fantastic. It was an easy drive from the airport as well as other San Diego attractions such as Sea World & Lego Land. It was also a good central location as it was close to family members who live in San Diego. Our family also mentioned how the apartment was in a prime location and they knew we were staying in a safe area of downtown.
The facilities were amazing. Being on holiday for such a long duration, it was nice to use the washer & dryer facilities. It made us feel at home. The entertainment system in the lounge and bedrooms were also a great treat.
We wish we had more time here.... Next time we visit San Diego we hope to contact Matthew again.
This was my first airbnb experience and I can only hope they all go this smooth! The listing was very accurate and the space was even nicer than I had expected. Upon our arrival, Matthew had clear directions with anything and everything we needed to know regarding the apartment, which made getting comfortable in a new space extremely easy. The location was perfect for my friends and I - walking distance to the popular bars and restaurants in the Gaslamp District, close to a few markets for groceries if you're looking to cook, and short Uber rides to other areas in San Diego to explore.
Very thankful for Matthew and his apartment, would easily revisit and stay again!
This was a wonderful place, owned by excellent hosts. Matthew was quick to answer our questions and the place was in excellent shape. In addition to being in immaculate shape, the facilities were great. Super fast internet, in-flat washer/dryer, dishwasher, entertainment center... I could go on. The location (in the historic Gas Lamp District) was also great for the conference that my colleagues and I attended. Matthew's place is in a nice neighborhood that was about a 10min walk to the convention center and had a great grocery store just up the street. Matthew also provided a list a good restaurants and conveniences in the area, which was very helpful. I would certainly stay here again and recommend Matthew's apartment to anyone visiting San Diego.
We liked to stay in Matt's place: it's big and clean. Location is perfect: we were walking to either Gaslamp or Little Italy every day. Bus stop is right near the door to go to Coronado Island.
This apartment was an amazing place to stay, absolutely fantastic, I couldn't recommend it highly enough.
The location was safe and secure, the apartment itself is in a perfect location, quiet but only a short walk to bars, restaurants etc. The apartment had everything we could have needed, from toiletries and towels to presses stocked with condiments and coffee!! After two weeks of travelling and staying in hotel rooms it was lovely to have a couch to sit on to relax watching TV....and to be able to do laundry!!
Thank you for letting us stay in your apartment, when we make it back to San Diego we would definitely stay here again if available!!
About the Host, Matthew
My wife & I are a late 20s, early 30s professional couple. We work hard, so we have the opportunity to travel. We believe that whether business or pleasure travel should be an experience that gives someone new insight into a place not called home. We spend our time outdoors running, hiking, working out, and enjoying the near full year sunny weather of San Diego. We are passionate about our four animals (2 small dogs, and 2 cats) who keep us entertained, volunteering, a good time with good people, wine, and making the best of any situation. It gives us great pride to share our condo, and allow people an alternate opportunity for enjoying our beautiful city.
