Hillcrest Condo in the Heart of it All

This 650 sq. ft. 1-bedroom fully-furnished and air-conditioned condo is in the heart of San Diego's safe and people-friendly Hillcrest neighborhood. Available for monthly (or longer) rentals only, it is an easy walk to restaurants, nightlife, shopping, and several supermarkets, as well as to Balboa Park including the world-famous San Diego Zoo. San Diego's Medical Area is close by and the condo is a favorite for medical professionals who need to be close to the hospitals. Full of morning light, it has a beautiful view of the mountains to the east.

The condo is centrally located, just a five-minute drive from downtown San Diego, the Convention Center, Petco Ballpark and the charming Gaslamp Quarter. It's a ten minute drive from the airport, and fifteen minutes from the beach and SeaWorld. It's also one block from four major bus lines, giving access to all parts of the city. This condo is tastefully appointed with quality furnishings and is ideal for the business traveler on an extended trip who wants something more personal than a hotel, as well as for those working at the nearby Medical Centers in Hillcrest and Mission Hills. There is a large work desk, with desk chair for professionals who choose to work remotely as well. It has high-speed internet/WIFI, HD cable television w/ BluRay player, heat, A/C. hot water, and comes with a utilities allowance. Longer stays (1 month or more), are easier to secure far in advance. High season (June-September) is always in demand, so please plan ahead to ensure your reservation. For the vacationer, it is convenient to all major attractions, making it perfect for a stay in 'America's Finest City.' Please note: This apartment is PET-FREE, so if you are allergic to animals, this apartment would be a great option for you. Security Deposit is $1250.00 for rentals of 30 days. If you are renting for only 1-month, the security deposit is $500, so be sure to ask about the deposit when inquiring about the condo. Security deposits are generally returned, minus $150 cleaning fee, within 14 days after termination of tenancy. Discount is available for those who reserve for tenancies of longer than 3 months (excluding high-season). We want to be accommodating, whenever possible, to ensure that you have a pleasant stay at the condo.

The bedroom has a queen-sized iComfort bed and its own flat-screen television and BluRay player. There is an Apple TV module for tenants to use to access their own streaming service(s) while staying here. There is plenty of closet space for even those who travel with lots of clothes. An inflatable bed is available for weekly rental, when/if you have an additional person, as needed (subject to availability).

FYI: Hillcrest is extremely welcoming and supportive of the LGBT community, and the condo is minutes away from its community center, nightspots and clubs.

Please note that the map link is accurate, but the Google street view shows an underpass nearby rather than our building!

We had a great 5-week stay in this condo. We were here during the pandemic lockdown, so we never met the owner in person, but it was clear he took great care of the place in general, and was very mindful of the COVID precautions in particular, in addition to being very responsive and helpful. The condo was very comfortable and was stocked with more than enough of everything one needs for a longer stay. It's in a great location near many restaurants in Hillcrest and Mission Hills. Not that we could enjoy them, but appreciated ability to walk around, get to Balboa Park easily, and have easy access to multiple groceries (Trader Joe's, Vons, Whole Foods and Lazy Acres are all walking distance). All in all, we really enjoyed our time and would be happy to stay here again next time we are in San Diego for a longer time period. Excellent Ana S 2/23/2021 10:45:00 AM
I spent three months here while on a sabbatical from work in Ireland, working as a visiting professor at UCSD. This rental was fantastic for several reasons. Firstly, to be arriving from a distant country to only spend a short rental period, it was very difficult to place trust in many advertised rentals; this was not the case at all with Michael. Michael always replied promptly, addressed any concerns with respect to paying a deposit from afar, and was there to greet me upon arrival. During my stay, he respected his tenant's autonomy but still kept in touch about any building issues or updates (e.g. refurbishing of elevator, etc.). The deposit was also promptly returned with no issue. The apartment itself is well furnished with necessary furniture, aircon, a good tv/internet service, and a huge fridge/freezer; overall, the place is very comfortable to live in. On the other hand, if you are not planning on remaining indoors, its location in Hillcrest is great for amenities and is well-connected for exploring San Diego, with places like Balboa Park and Downtown nearby, and a free shuttle to UCSD campus up near La Jolla. The place also has a secure underground car park space at no additional cost. Overall, I would highly recommend this rental, and should I ever be returning to San Diego in future for a similar stay, I will be emailing Michael to see if this place is available!

We enjoyed our stay. We felt safe both in the building and neighborhood. The location was convenient to many venues. To take advantage of all that San Diego and Southern California have to offer we were glad we had a car. A parking spot in the underground garage is included. Grocery stores and other stores were within walking distance. A washer and dryer are not in the apartment but are only about 6 steps from the apartment door. The apartment more than met our expectations. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils for cooking at home. Michael was pleasant, easy to work with, and accommodating. When we departed I inadvertently left a satchel under the bed and he called me before we reached the train station and offered to deliver the satchel to us at the station. The payment process worked well and and was just as we discussed. The deposit, minus the previously agreed upon cleaning fee, was returned to us promptly. Excellent Jack 4/4/2018 9:00:00 AM
