About Jeff

Growing up here and now raising our kids in this captivating city has been a wonderful experience. As a family we have a lot of out-of town visitors and all have been intrigued by the beauty of this place. We have traveled all over the world, often staying with locals or in vacation rentals and getting to know an area more from a locals perspective. It is an experience we would like to share with those seeking to get to know San Diego.

Jeff purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Jeff chose San Diego County

Working in the real estate business at the time I knew this property was in the perfect location as it is so close to everything San Diego has to offer. The walkable neighborhood dazzles you with the wide array of food options in its renowned restaurants. Going to the beach in the morning, visiting museums, sight seeing and shopping all without having to drive for a long time, means you can make the most of your day. Taking it all in without the stress that life so often brings. Enjoy your stay and the convenience of being close to it all!

One block from San Diego's biggest farmers market, the Pride Parade, the Rock'n'Roll marathon and City Fest. A short drive to downtown San Diego, the airport and many of San Diego's beaches. Our apartments are located in the middle of the best San Diego has to offer yet still a quiet location tucked away from the main street with a big garage. Supermarket, cafes, bookstores. Kid-friendly, highchair, toys, pack'n'play. Outdoor patio area with table and gas BBQ.

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

Remodeled apartment, clean and well stocked. Owner Jeff most accommodating. Central area and walking distance to Balboa. Park. Accurate description and photos. I have tried Airbnb in the past..not good...bad descriptions and photo shopped pics.

Many bars and restaurants close by, try the Hillcrest brewery...great craft beer!

Jeff is very attentive to all needs throughout the visit.

The condo is clean and well stocked.

The location (close to Trader Joe's, Balboa Park and downtown) worked very well for us.

Clean, conveniently located, well appointed

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of the unit. It was easy to walk for dinner, groceries, etc. Inside the unit the rooms were clean and neat. The beds comfortable and the table space more than adequate. The garage and laundry facilities were also clean, safe and easy to work with.

Clean, organized, met every need plus felt pampered!!

  • 5 of 5

So immediately felt like a "serene" retreat! Great towels, comfy beds, perfectly appointed kitchen! Even had all the basic spices, oils, condiments. Jeff was super accommodating, available and gracious - yet we felt we had privacy. Was blown away by the extra touch of quarters IN the slots of washing machine!!! Dry rack for our use. Having a garage parking spot. Seriously home away from home! Can't say enough positives.
