Sunny San Diego Harbor Area Condo with Pool

2 Bedroom/2 Bathroom fully furnished condo in downtown San Diego’s best location near Gaslamp. This Marina District home beside Pantoja Park is on the raised ground floor of a low-rise gated community with mature landscaping and a lovely outdoor swimming pool with jacuzzi. The indoor/outdoor setting takes advantage of San Diego’s year-around mild climate and sea breezes.

On the street side, the award winning designer kitchen (completely remodeled, and featured in Better Homes & Gardens: Kitchen & Bath Ideas 2014). Both stylish and highly efficient. It opens to a dining nook that can seat 8 and a large living room with comfortable seating for reading, watching cable tv and videos, or listening to music. The living room sofa makes into a queen sized bed. There is also an upright Yamaha piano in very good condition. A very large (8 feet x 16 feet) outdoor patio off the living room is a pleasant place to enjoy morning coffee, evening wine, people watching, and summer evening fireworks over San Diego Harbor and Pacific Ocean.

On an inner courtyard, there are two bedrooms, each opening to a large outdoor patio. The master bedroom has a king-sized four-poster bed. Its walk-through closet connects to a smaller newly remodeled en suite master bathroom with tub/shower. The smaller second bedroom doubles as an office. This room has a single day bed with trundle that can be pulled out to make side by side twins. A second, larger, newly remodeled bathroom with oversized walk-in shower with rain shower head is accessed from the hallway that leads to the living room.

Begin your day at the Brickyard Coffee Shop across the street where the locals gather at trolley-side outdoor tables. The San Diego Trolley takes you to points in the city and the US/Mexico border 20 miles away. Take a short walk or hop a pedicab to shop, dine, or sightsee: You are just a five minute walk to San Diego Harbor, Petco Ballpark, San Diego Convention Center, Little Italy, Seaport Village, Gaslamp District, and Horton Plaza. If you want to venture beyond downtown, all public transportation is within a 1-2 block radius: airport bus one block away to San Diego International Airport; buses/trolleys to UCSD, SDSU, and beaches, Balboa Park, SD Zoo, Mission Valley, Old Town. Real Southern California living! The Santa Fe Amtrak Rail Station, one block away, takes you as far north as Seattle through Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and San Francisco.

This home can accommodate 3-4 people very easily and up to 6 if all sleeping spaces are fully utilized. The monthly rental fee includes all utilities, cable tv, wi-fi, landline phone (unlimited calls within the US), cleaning service every other week, furnishings, and one reserved parking space. This is a very good value for downtown San Diego. Offered September 1, 2015 - July 1, 2016 for rent (4 month minimum). Exchange possible (anywhere).
