Amazing location in downtown San Diego. Steps away from the Gaslamp District. Incredible views from large rooftop deck. Comfortable large modern furnished 1-bedroom.
  • We loved this rooftop penthouse! The pictures don't do it justice, it's much more spacious than I thought it would be. The outdoor deck is really amazing, lots of space to hang out and have a great evening. The one drawback to the place was the noise from the street. You're located downtown so that's a bit inescapable. Wasn't that big a deal to me, but maybe bring some earplugs along. Loved this place, highly recommended!!!

  • Brian was an incredibly kind and accommodating host. We could not have asked for a better host. He asked us what we were interested in and then took the time to make us a list of the different spots he thought we would enjoy. The apartment is magnificent. It has to be one of the nicest views in the entire city from the spacious penthouse deck. You are right in the thick of the action as soon as you walk outside the apartment with so many restaurants and bars to choose from. The apartment was even bigger than what we expected after seeing the pictures. Overall we were extremely pleased with this experience and would HIGHLY recommend this apartment to our friends.

  • Epic weekend thanks in part to Brian and this awesome spot. The pictures, although quite lovely, don't do justice; the place was surprising bigger than expected. (especially the patio) Communication was seamless and Brian was super cool about us being 5 hours later than expected (traffic sucks). Everything was awesome. Would definitely recommend.

  • Loved the place! Perfect for our short weekend in San Diego. The place had everything we needed and the location is central to everything. Brian was very accommodating and we would stay again in a heartbeat.

My studio is located in the infamous Gaslamp District of Downtown San Diego. Just minutes away from Petco Park, the best restaurants, clubs, and bars in San Diego. Its a 10 minute drive to the beach and Coronado Island.
Huge modern condo right in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter. You won't need to drive anywhere because there are hundreds of places to walk in a one-mile radius. The studio is 700 square feet. Houses 2 adults comfortably. Large breakfast bar and full kitchen. Washer and Dryer in the unit. Huge floor to ceiling windows. Beautiful furnishings and a large dream queen bed. Along with access to my gorgeous studio, you will have access to the roof top terrace that over looks the bay to Coronado Island. I will have a property manager available to you at all times. She lives two blocks away and can be to you in 2 minutes!
The Gaslamp Quarter is a district of San Diego, California. It is a 16½ block historical neighborhood in Downtown San Diego, and is the site of several entertainment and night life venues, as well as scheduled events and festivals. Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres is located one block away in downtown San Diego's East Village. The area is listed as an historic district on the National Register of Historic Places as Gaslamp Quarter Historic District. Its main period of development began in 1867, when Alonzo Horton bought the land in hopes of creating a new city center closer to the bay, and chose 5th Avenue as its main street. After a period of urban decay, the neighborhood underwent urban renewal in the 1980s and 1990s. The Gaslamp Quarter extends from Broadway to Harbor Drive, and from 4th to 6th Avenue, covering 16½ blocks. It includes 94 historic buildings, most of which were constructed in the Victorian Era, and are still in use with active tenants including restaurants, shops and nightclubs. If you need parking, street parking is available amongst numerous parking structures in downtown. You will also get one key: one for the door to the actual apartment. This key also opens the door to the gym and the business center. Most everything is within walking distance, but you are only a one block from the transit system if you need to take the train or trolley or bus. There are also lots of taxi cabs that drive around the area if you need to flag one of those down. Uber and Lyft are also good options! San Diego has a great Trolly system. The Trolly is one block away from the building.
  • The apartment itself and location are great. It is a pretty large space and well kept.

  • Nastassja's apartment is very spacious and comfortable. It's close to all three light rail lines, the convention center, the ballpark, Albertson's and many restaurants. Alli, Nastassja's friend, was very helpful, she met me with the key at the apartment and checked in with me during the week to see if I needed anything. The apartment had everything from a Keurig coffee maker to a washer and dryer. Plus Nastassja's recommendations were perfect, the Blind Burro Restaurant was a highlight of the trip. This place is such a great deal I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

  • Nastassja was an excellent host. We were greeted right away when we arrived. Very clean and modern place. The location was perfect for our trip. Will absolutely recommend this to anyone.

  • This was a great stay - and I recommend this apartment to anyone who is looking for a place in San Diego. The apartment complex felt very safe, and included a nice outdoor foyer and a workout room. The studio was in great shape, very spacious and well-kept with a large bathroom and kitchen. The fridge was stocked with microwavable meals and drinks, and the host told me I was welcome to any of it. Her apartment was equipped with wifi and cable TV, and also included Amazon Prime, Netflix, and HBO. The studio is situated in Downtown, only a few short blocks away from the Gaslamp district, Petco Park, and the waterfront. There was no shortage of great bars and restaurants right nearby the apartment, along with tourist attractions and street festivals. Lastly, the host's friend who was looking after the apartment while she was out of town was incredibly welcoming and accessible, and definitely made me feel at home in San Diego! Great place and I highly recommend it!!

This California cottage sits in the eclectic and ever-changing Barrio Logan. Located only 5 minutes from downtown, you are an $8 Uber ride from Petco Park/Downtown, 15 minutes from airport/train station. The neighborhood is home to several great eats and drinking establishments. My place is close to Ryan Bros Coffee Inc, Chicano Park, Salud! Hipster Taco Shop, Xborder Brewery, Iron Fist Brewery, Salt and Pepper Gallery, Basile Art Gallery, Panchita's Authentic Mexican Bakery, Café Moto.
The cottage was built in 1929 with all the charm and characteristics of that era. I have remodeled and updated honoring the charm but adding a modern twist to make it comfortable and quiet. Guests will have full access to the home-kitchen, living room, bathroom, and of course, their room! I will try my very best to interact with my guests, and I always respect my guests' wishes to their me-time-sometimes you just need a bit of peace and quiet.
Barrio Logan is an eclectic neighborhood that is seeing a lot of change. Many artists and art galleries have made Barrio Logan their home because of its proximity to downtown and the rich local history that includes the renowned Chicano Park, home to beautiful murals depicting the Latino experience. The cottage is 2 blocks from bus stop and 4 blocks from trolley that connects to train station/North County Coaster/Orange County/Los Angeles. Central location--about $12 UberX ride to downtown, Mission Valley, Old Town, Zoo The neighborhood is in transition, please do not let that deter you from an awesome cultural experience.

San Diego

Nestled between Los Angeles and the Mexican border, San Diego shines on the charming southern California coastline. Since the name La Jolla literally translates to "jewel," it's often referred to the city's prize jewel. Known for its pristine beaches and sweeping skyline, San Diego, the City in Motion, keeps residents and tourists moving with mild weather, while La Jolla keeps them surfing.

This quaint seaside community is popular for water sports, including snorkeling and swimming. If you’re more interested in land-based sports, enjoy the scenic Torrey Pines Golf Course. There’s plenty to do in the way of the arts, including museums and galleries. You need only take note of the elaborate murals that punctuate the facades of La Jolla's buildings to see how rich the arts are in this ultra-hip neighborhood.

Stay in the South Bay area, and you’ll experience the cultural side of San Diego. In the South Bay neighborhood you can eat authentic Mexican cuisine, spot whales in the wild, or see rescued turtles at the Chula Vista Nature Center. Embark on a whale-watching tour for the complete experience, or dive deeper at the Aquatica SeaWorld Waterpark. If you’re craving greener spaces, the Tijuana Estuary Visitor Center has a lot to offer – especially for those looking for a walkabout or bike ride.

Looking to escape the California sand and sun for shady streets? Then check out Downtown San Diego. Spend a day indoors browsing museums like the USS Midway Museum, San Diego Natural History Museum, and the Maritime Museum of San Diego. Venture outside through the winding trails of historic Balboa Park and check out the animals at the San Diego Zoo, or take in a San Diego Padres game at Petco Park. What would an authentic metropolitan experience be without a night on the town? The Gaslamp Quarter features many high-end clubs, bars, and restaurants that beg for an old-fashioned pub crawl. Choose from more than 30 local haunts that are sure to inspire the ultimate evening out with good friends, good drinks, and even better food.

If you’re there for the history, Mission Valley is a must. Spend the evening just steps away from the historic Old Town area, which is rich with cultural artifacts of the first West Coast Spanish settlement. Get to know the area with the famous Trolley Tours that snake along the old streets of San Diego for sightseeing opportunities or casual transportation. Find even more Mexican food with local favorites like handmade tortillas, sizzling fajitas, and other treats. And be sure to visit Mission Valley, where modern wonders come alive in a vast array of entertainment options and attractions.
