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.

Awesome spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! Place was spotless and had everything listed. The beds were super comfortable. We loved that they had a playpen and high chair for our baby. The location was perfect for us as we rented a car. It was quick to get downtown and to the beach. We would definitely stay again/recommended to our friends. Thanks Jeff :)

Super clean, comfortable, and centrally located!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town from northern CA to visit SeaWorld and the Zoo. This was a great place to stay with small children! The pack n play was very convenient and the place was so clean and tidy! Loved our experience! Cali O Burger and Cafe on Park were both delicious!

Home away from home in Hillcrest

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I wanted to take our 7 year old grand-daughter to see the fabulous San Diego attractions (Zoo, Wildlife Park & Sea World) so we set out to find the best place for us to stay while we were there. And what a stroke of luck we chose the perfect spot which had everything we hoped for- a charming & well equipped suite (with its own garage even) with delightful & helpful hosts. the location suited everyone as well as it is close to the attractions and you could also walk to the nearby eclectic shopping area with restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops etc. We never did finish exploring so it looks like another trip to Serene Sanctuary is on the cards - cant wait
