Clean, convenient, off street parking. Great place to stay in Hillcrest!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third or fourth time we have stayed here while visiting San Diego and, as always, it was a good experience. The apartment is close to restaurants, Balboa Park and everything else that San Diego has to offer. We were able to check in as soon as we arrived instead of having to wait until after 3:00, which we really appreciated. Love having laundry on-site.

Cute apartment in the heart of Hillcrest

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was a wonderful oasis! It is located steps from restaurants and bars, and just blocks from grocery stores and other useful attractions. The place is small but feels spacious. It is well decorated and clean, and has an AC unit that came in great handy during an unusually hot few days. The kitchen is fully stocked, the bathroom is large and private, and the bed is cozy. The apartment shares a wall with a French restaurant, but we were never disturbed by noise or neighbors. We loved spending our days out exploring San Diego, and were comforted to know that we had such a lovely place to crash at the end of a long day. Truly a great experience staying at Tom's cute apartment!

No complaints! The AC died on us but Shannon brought us a fan and with windows open the house cooled off nicely. Great place, great hostess! Highly recommend.

Refined. Charming. Hillcrest Delight.

  • 5 of 5

The living space was perfect. Everything worked perfectly. This luxury studio was situated perfectly for walking about, the accommodations were designed with attention to detail. The shower was awesome, and things like the cabinet drawers closed with precision. The restaurants all around were delightful and delicious. This space was amazing. Would definitely stay here again next time.

Location and nice little place!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed here end of May, early June 2017 and we were so happy to arrive after staying in a hotel at the front end of our vacation. The flat/apartment is nicely appointed, contemporary, well cared for -- it was perfect for us. We really took in the San Diego area in a radius of 30-35 miles so found it to be a great centralized location, and, at the same time, we felt we were part of a neighborhood (which we really like). Parking next to the building was a nice feature and we felt very safe in this neighborhood. Trader Joe's was not far away and there were more restaurants to try than we had days to try them! Tom was very responsive to any questions we had prior to our arrival and after and it was all very easy to arrive and depart. The mattress was extremely comfortable and the K-cup coffee pot was a nice feature! This was our first experience in San Diego and we thought it was a wonderful place to visit. Some of our adventures included the Cabrillo National Monument and tide pools, The San Diego State Fair, Del Mar Beach, Torrey Pines State Park, Tijuana, Imperial Beach, numerous craft breweries (including Stone Mountain, Coronado, Ballast Point and Modern Times) Balboa Park and it's many cultural features, Petco Stadium for a Padres/Cubs game, the San Diego Safari Park, Hotel Coronado, Little Italy (we felt like we saw a lot!). You can't go wrong here -- it's just a great little place and the airport is only 10 minutes away!
