Overview

About the property

2 Br, Walk To Restaurants, Shopping, Close To Zoo, Museums, Downtown, Beaches

Are you a foodie? Do you love shopping, museums, the beach or zoo, strolling through the biggest and most popular farmers market in San Diego?

Hillcrest is a captivating neighborhood to explore and so close and centrally located to everything else San Diego has to offer. Serene Retreat is the perfect venue to get dazzled by the array of attractions and sights of San Diego.

The apartment is 1/2 block away from the farmers market, the Rock’n’Roll Marathon, the Pride Parade, some of San Diego’s best restaurants and nightlife. Only a short walk or drive to the world famous San Diego Zoo, the museums of Balboa Park or the Old Globe Theater. Many of our guests come without a car as most of Hillcrest's attractions and events are in walking distance. Exploring the rest of San Diego can be done by public transportation (the apartment is 1 block from a major bus hub) or with Uber, Lyft or rental bike.

The apartment is also within walking distance to several grocery stores (Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Sprouts, Ralphs, etc.), unique boutiques and award winning restaurants.

If you choose to drive, the apartment comes with a one car garage spot. The airport, the Convention Center, downtown, Seaport Village, SeaWorld, Coronado, Petco Park, Qualcomm Stadium, Old Town and so many of the beautiful beaches are just a 10-15 minute drive. This is the location to stay in to start exploring San Diego!

With 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, fully stocked eat-in kitchen, dining area, living room with 42" Flat Screen TV (Netflix, Sling TV and 50/5 Mbps Wi-Fi provided), DVD-Player, Roku, relaxing patio area with table, chairs and gas BBQ, fully stocked laundry area and a large one-car garage, Serene Retreat is the perfect destination for a get away with family or close friends.

For those exploring our pristine beaches, we have beach towels, beach chairs and boogie boards. For our little guests we provide toys, a highchair, a Pack 'n Play and some children's dishes. Please ask should you need anything in particular. The patio features a gas BBQ. All rooms have ceiling fans and for those who like it a bit cooler a space A/C unit is provided.

The building is a duplex, so there are only two units which affords more privacy.

The apartment sleeps 4 guests and is located on the second floor, has two bedrooms (each with a Queen bed). Feel at home in this newly remodeled and upgraded apartment with crown moulding, stainless steel appliances, tile counters, ceiling fans, motion lights and hardwood and tile floors.

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

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!

Great property 😀

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed for the Rock & Roll Marathon in San Diego. The apartment was clean, quiet and well stocked with clean towels and kitchen items. The TV lost its signal throughout a sports event but we were only interested in that one event. The property was exactly like the photos which was very nic and comfortable. I would recommend you check the fees before you reserve so you know the actual cost. I would definitely stay again.

Peaceful and clean.

  • 5 of 5

Staying in this condo was soo convenient for the purpose of our stay. Jeff made sure the directions for check-in and out where clear and easy to follow. We appreciate the location in relation to interstate access, which made it easy for us to get around. Having garage parking was definitely ideal! This was definitely one of the cleanest rentals I have stayed in and will most certainly be back! I recommend this condo for anyone's stay in San Diego!

Very good value. As advertised. Extremely clean. No problems for three adults and a 4 yr. old

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as advertised, but since sometimes properties don't meet expectations I was delightfully surprised that this actually exceeded expectations. It was VERY VERY clean which was a real plus. Excellently stocked with all the equipment, condiments, etc. one would need in the kitchen. Jef was very quick to respond. The locks were e-z to operate after a couple of tries. The Hillcrest area is very close to all and the DEDICATED PARKING SPOT was definitely a HUGE PLUS. I am a large woman and my son in law is very tall so we were concerned about the bathroom. it's not huge but it worked out fine for the both of us and was sparkling clean as was the whole apartment. Appreciate Jef's attentiveness to customers and the quality of this place for the price. No frills but a wonderful kitchen ( LARGE) fully equipped and near good restaurants, shops and the SoCal lifestyle of SD. It was also very centrally located from all our needs- LYFT was e-z and seemed very reasonable.
