The Space

The historic "Carriage House" is in a perfect downtown San Diego location; only 5 blocks to the Gaslamp District and equally close to the outdoor cafes of Little Italy and the bay.

A vintage gem surrounded by modern, luxury towers, this impeccably remodeled bungalow is free-standing with its own private patio. The Carriage House is part of four newly restored Victorian buildings, and is beautifully and artfully furnished with brick floors, king bed, high speed Internet, Wi-Fi, flat screen TV’s in living and bedroom, and a fully equipped kitchen. The sofa is a queen size pullout bed.

This unique suite has all the comforts of a hotel and all the charm of a boutique inn. Enjoy the garden setting on the grounds of Victoria Square, one of San Diego's most celebrated historic restorations.

In the center of downtown San Diego, just minutes from the airport and the convention center, Victoria Square is the perfect base from which to discover San Diego. Just a few blocks to the harbor, the San Diego Opera, and Horton Plaza, this location is also only a few minutes walk to the San Diego trolley, and boasts easy freeway access to all beaches and attractions.

Walking distance to music venues such as the House of Blues and downtown nightclubs, as well as to the Museum of Contemporary Art. Victoria Square is also only a five-minute drive to the San Diego Symphony, the famous San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park cultural center.

Please, no pets or smoking allowed.

Check In
  • This carriage house was wonderful! The location was very central to nightlife, the house was beautiful, and just perfect for a short stay. Clean, charming, and just as advertised. I'd recommend it to anyone.

  • The location is very convenient to Gaslamp and was central to most of San Diego. The apartment was very clean and was perfect for our needs. We will definitely stay here again.

  • Last minute booking for a week of business in San Diego. Super convenient check-in. Nice to have the whole apartment to myself and not be stuck in a hotel room. Will always check the availability for this place when I have a couple of nights in town.

  • Was in SD for a conference. Amy's place was great. Easy in. Easy out. Close to the convention center, Gaslamp, and the water. Plenty of room for two. Highly recommended.

  • The apartment was lovely and had everything we needed. The location was very central and easy to travel to and from the airport. The bed was massive and very comfy and it was good to have the kitchen facilities too. The process of checking in and out was very straightforward. Thanks for a great stay!

  • Very cute little house, I really enjoyed staying there. Everything was in great order and very clean. The kitchen even provided tea and coffee and milk, very convenient in the morning. The closeness to Little Italy is a real plus. Walking to the convention center is easy, just 20 minutes, only the last couple of blocks are a little deserted and it feels a little strange to walk back at night.

  • Fantastic place! So close to San Diego's best tourist spots and easy freeway access made this a no-brainer.

    April 2014
  • Loved it! The carriage house is a unique, spacious, and relatively quiet accommodations for downtown. We appreciated the kitchen, which was well appointed. Amy was very prompt and very helpful in her replies. Directions for checking in and out were very simple. Parking was a bit tricky, but otherwise no complaints.

  • We massively enjoyed our stay in Amy's lovely cottage!! The cottage is very nice and comfortable, and located in pretty much the best location one would hope for (next to Little Italy, the Embarcadero, Gaslamp district). Amy's cottage is perfect for a couple but also fit for 2 more people. I'll definitely try and stay here next time I visit San Diego.

    March 2014
  • We enjoyed our stay. Within walking distance to Gaslamp, public transportation. This was our first experience with a own property and not a hotel.
