The Space
This is a bright, one bedroom corner apartment in the heart of Little Italy. It has a lofted bedroom and a spacious kitchen and living room, bathroom with tub and shower.

*Since this unit doesn't come with an onsite parking spot we let our guests use our extra parking spot a few blocks away. Its precisely .04 miles away and a 6 minute walk back to the apartment. Please take this offer of the parking spot since street parking can be difficult since its such a popular neighborhood. Please don't complain that its .04 miles away. It is a free parking spot in the most popular neighborhood in San Diego

I live in the building with my son Skye and our super friendly dog Willow. Willow is a snuggler so if you run into him in the hallway expect a little love.

The Neighborhood
Little Italy is one of the most desirable areas in San Diego and is home to unique shops, cafes, wine bars, and breweries. And, of course, it’s also home to numerous restaurants, both Italian eateries and other cultural dining spots as well! Nearby neighborhoods include Balboa Park, Harborview, and the Gaslamp. The San Diego Bay is also just a few minutes away.

Please see our Instagram page for updated photos as I am always changing things around and have updated the furniture/art in the apartment recently. @mrblueskye_retreat

Please remember that you will be staying in a home, not a hotel. Therefore, we ask that you treat our space with the same respect you would show your own. We travel often and have help managing guest services for our home while we are away. The Pillow team will be available for assistance via email.

Our home has or lockbox located on or near the entrance. I will send you the code 48 hours before your check in time. b

Where you’ll be

San Diego, California, United States

This is the best apartment to rent without a car. Walking distance to the Bay. You can catch a quick Ferry to Coronado and go to the beach. The trolley is one block away and Amtrak/Coaster are two blocks away at Santa Fe Depot. You can take the Coaster to Encinitas and be at the beach in a 1/2 hour! Bike and Scooter rentals are practically on every corner.
If you're coming from LA take Amtrak down and walk two blocks to the apartment. .
Walk to Gaslamp Quarter or take the trolley to the Ballpark and see a Padres game in the East Village.
Amazing Restaurants!!! Little Italy is chock full of some of the best food in San Diego. There is also a Farmers Market every Wednesday & Saturday 1 block away from building with tons of fresh produce and prepared food. Coffee shops, gelato, bars (Bottlecraft is exceptional for local, imported and craft beer) Cute boutiques and hair salons. Harbor Breakfast is just downstairs and they open early if you're jet lagged and want to get an early morning breakfast. The apartment is blocks away from the San Diego Bay which has a fantastic bike/running path. Balboa Park is just a walk away or a super quick car ride. You can be at the San Diego Zoo in 5 minutes. If you're traveling with a child the studio is one block away from the new Waterfront Playground and Water Park. This is such a great spot if you are attending a conference at the Convention Center. Just 3 stops away on the trolley and you can be at your Convention within minutes.

Hi! I'm Rachel! I own five Airbnb rentals with my partner Zach and my mom Shelley is our Co Host. I work as a Fiber Artist and run a studio called Mr Blue Skye. Most of the art in our Airbnbs is made by myself or by one of our talented friends. If you would like to see more of my work you can follow me on (Hidden by Airbnb) @mrblueskye. Zach is a musician. He is the bass player in the band Pinback, Three Mile Pilot and his solo project Systems Officer. Zach kind of takes the back seat with the airbnb's but is always there in case a t.v. breaks or the wifi is funny. You'll most likely come across me or my mom Shelley and probably my magical dog Willow. So please say hello. We look forward to hosting you!
