Forbes magazine named North Park as one of America's best hipster neighborhoods, noting that culturally diverse North Park is home to Craftsman cottages, cafes and diners, coffee shops, several microbreweries, boutiques, and the North Park Farmers Market. The North Park Theater and the Ray Street Arts District are also bastions of creativity in the area'. The Los Angeles Times writes: 'North Park has all the ingredients for the cool school: It's culturally diverse and has art galleries, boutiques, trendy bars with handcrafted cocktails and local brews, and foodie-approved eateries.'

An eclectic and diverse array of restaurants, as well as independent coffee shops, can be found along the main arteries of 30th Street and University Avenue. The area is also dotted with bars and night clubs that cater to a wide diversity of patrons. Downtown North Park contains the Ray Street Arts District. Ray at Night is a gallery walk held the second Saturday of every month in North Park. It is the largest and longest running art walk in San Diego's history. Nearby, the Birch North Park Theatre reopened after major renovations in 2005. It is the home of Lyric Opera San Diego.

North Park has a Farmers Market every Thursday which has been listed as one of the top 40 in the USA. The market is located in the parking lot at University and 32nd Streets. The Spring/Summer hours are 3pm-sunset, Fall/Winter 2pm-Sunset. They feature over 35 independent vendors; locally grown produce/flowers; gourmet/ethnic foods; arts and crafts; books; and, often, live music.

About Beth Galdieri

We love homes, vacations, people, and customer service. Making people happy in beautiful environments is our 'thing.'

Beth Galdieri purchased this studio in 2012

Why Beth Galdieri chose San Diego County

When we saw this building, with its old world charm and quaint sophistication- we knew that we had to own it, renovate it- and then provide fabulous, beautiful, comfortable and 'cool' accommodations where people could relax, enjoy the Park, the Zoo, the many restaurants- all within the context of an authentic, local San Diego experience.

What makes this studio unique

This building is thought to have been owned a century ago by an historic church nearby and resided in by church members or out of town visitors. It is a beautiful building and stands out as regal yet simple. This combination of simplicity and beauty attracted us.

Great place to stay. Nice amenities, updated.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay while I was in San Diego for a conference. I didn't want to be right downtown. This was still relatively close and had everything I would not all have at home. Fast internet, tv and updates to the whole place. Only complaints might be the low water pressure and small parking stall in the alley but overall I loved it here and would recommend it to anyone staying in the area.

Fantastic Stay in North Park at this little gem!

  • 5 of 5

The photos are very accurate. This is a wonderful place to lay your head down each night after exploring the beautiful San Diego area. It's location was very central. We had a car and utilized the on-site parking, but often took Lyft/Uber. Many times our wait time was less than one minute. The area is full of wonderful restaurants and bars. It was easy to get everywhere without worries about parking, etc.

The studio is actually pretty spacious. There is a large wardrobe, a small closet with laundry facilities, a small dining area and comfy sitting chair. The outdoor area is great for having a drink at night or just relaxing. While we did not use the kitchen, it seemed to be very well-stocked. There is a refrigerator and microwave/oven. We had no trouble with Wi-Fi and there was a TV, but we didn't use it. There was shampoo, body wash and conditioner provided in shower and a week's supply of paper towels and tissue provided as well.

The parking is behind the unit in 3 spaces or a garage with 2 additional spaces. Note- the parking is for compact cars, for sure. However, you can park on the street if you wish. The owners were very quick to respond to questions during booking and were timely with information regarding unit, check-in, check-out and security deposit.

We would definitely stay here again without hesitation. It is a wonderful little hideaway in a great part of San Diego!!

Get away hide away

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful. Beautiful place, with everything you need. Relaxing courtyard to enjoy which we did. Quiet yet close to the action. We even walked to the bus and took it to explore downtown and Sea Port Village. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to San Diego❤

After a day running around the city and the beach, this was the perfect place to wind down. It's so close to everything and it accomadates all needs. I would always want to come back here if I'm ever in San Diego.

Rates in table are representative and may vary based on number of occupants and specific dates requested. Rates and minimum stays during holidays and special events, such as Comic-Con, are typically higher. San Diego requires that occupancy taxes be charged for stays of fewer than 31 nights (10.5%). Cleaning fee, insurance and refundable security deposit are additional. Rates are subject to change until reservation has been confirmed.

For stays of one month or more, we charge for bi-weekly cleaning, in addition to a final cleaning fee. This will not be auto-generated via a reservation request -- We will need to revise the quote to include the biweekly cleanings.

Many people ask about this: We include a third party damage protection policy in our quotes, which is a nonrefundable fee. The policy protects you and us. With the policy in place, we're able to charge a very low cash security deposit that covers minor damages (such as stained towels or linens or broken plates). The insurance policy covers more significant accidental damages (for example, to furniture, floors, appliances, counters, walls, mirrors, plumbing fixtures, lamps, window glass and coverings, other elements). The insurance also enables you to recover your security deposit in the event of a qualified incident. VRBO offers you the option of either purchasing the insurance policy we've quoted or paying an additional refundable security deposit equal to the coverage/face value of the policy. For example, suppose we are charging $250 refundable security and you opt NOT to purchase the insurance (which in this example has a coverage value of $1,500) -- Your new combined REFUNDABLE security deposit would be $250 + $1500 = $1,750. Please note that the price of the insurance policy and the coverage amount are subject to change.
