Great location, minor annoyances

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Great apartment. Only drawbacks were the very tight parking partially blocked on the street by an illegal Parker for 4 days (not hosts fault) and the noise from restaurant doing "deep cleaning" and moving equipment late one evening. Garbage bin in parking overflowing that is shared and very stinky since shared with French restaurant. Sewer smell from shower in the evening. During the day quite loud from upstairs office but we were out most days. These were overall minor issues. Notified property manager about each. French restaurant very good, many local dining and cafe options. Very walkable location.

Owner's Response: Wade, thank you for staying with us and thank you for the review. We've identified the smell in the bathroom as coming from a nearby business, and they have taken care of the problem. Unfortunately, most of these issues were out of our control. Fortunately, they were temporary. We've addressed them, as necessary, and they should not present a problem to our future guests. Thanks again for staying with us.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, well-equipped and exactly as described. The location was convenient, just a few minutes from the highway, airport and local attractions. Great energy in the surrounding neighborhood. Parking was a life-saver, but public transportation was also readily available. Will be recommending this property to others heading to San Diego.

Great stay at Hillcrest apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for four days. It was clean, well equipped, convenient and attractive. We were able to park our car and walk to a great number of restaurants. It is close to Balboa Park and, even better, two blocks from our son's apartment, so it couldn't have been a better choice. The check-in and check-out were effortless and accommodated our late arrival. We will definitely book a stay here again!

Two Thumbs Up for Hillcrest Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This squeaky clean, little one-bedroom place is great for a couples Hillcrest getaway or a longer stay to do San Diego. The reserved, off-street parking place is especially important in Hillcrest, because you can park right in front of your unit after a day of exploring or an evening out to dinner downtown, in North Park or in Little Italy. The parking also great because you can drive over to Balboa for a ramble or theater if you don't feel like walking the 3/4 mile from the unit to the park entrance. Hillcrest itself has a funky, relaxed feel and lot of great, well-priced restaurants withing walking distance, plus a world-class bakery. Walking at night is safe. The unit has a roomy, new, well-equipped kitchen, and the big counter is great for spreading out and casual dining. The bed is excellent and surprisingly, the unit is fairly quiet, although you should expect to occasionally hear such urban treats as trash trucks and goofball drivers with their radios thumping. We slept well. We suggested that the owner add a bath mat and grab bars inside the shower, which is large and luxurious but a bit slippery. Cable TV worked great; generous offering of channels, unlike many hotels. Nice Kuerig coffee maker with plenty of pods. Whole Foods market just a few blocks away for upscale provisioning. The French cafe attached to the unit -- excellent for a romantic dinner, and well priced -- was not a noise problem as I had feared. Make sure air conditioner is working when you arrive, although you can ventilate the unit nicely by opening the bathroom window and a window in front.

Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

I would absolutely recommended this apartment. I stayed here for a month and thoroughly enjoyed the comfort and the great kitchen. There are so many restaurants in the area that are within walking distance - the coffee shop around the corner was wonderful because you can sit outside and enjoy your coffee. The owner and manager of this apartment are the best. The apartment is very clean, comfortable and well appointed. I will certainly be back for another extended stay. Thank you so much for a great place to call home.
