About Ron & Susan Oleson

Retired professor. We travel internationally & have two Bichon's. Love to walk on the waterfront and eat the best fresh fish at Mitch's Seafood which is located at the Sport fishing landing. Balboa Park & the Zoo are favorites; Park has the Prado Restaurant which has great happy hour drinks & food; Zoo has Albert's Tree Restaurant which many do not know about; it is breezy & has an African motif.

Ron & Susan Oleson purchased this apartment in 1994

Why Ron & Susan Oleson chose San Diego

We have a vacation home rental & realized our geographic apartment location would be great for its accessibility to all that San Diego offers. We have a century home in front of the apartments & really enjoy San Diego's great sites like our Ball Park, just 3 minutes away & the Gaslamp.

What makes this apartment unique

Accessibility is key and the airport is so convenient due to our travels that we know those coming to San Diego can benefit from this travel ease.

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was clean and had most of what we needed.

We had a power cut on the second day and we could have done with some matches or a lighter for the cooker.

The garden was lovely to sit in.

The location was very close to a bus stop.

The local store is good for food plus there is a lovely cafe nearby and an excellent vegan restaurant, Kindred, about 15 mins walk away.

It is possible to walk to the fantastic Balboa Park.

There is some noise from aeroplanes as the flight path is overhead.

Booking and paying for the apartment was easy

The garden patio was lovely. So much care there. Neighborhood felt safe. Laundry room nice. Locking the front door was tricky. Forgot to check if binder gave insight there.

Cute location with lots to do in the area

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I loved the location! Loved the foliage outside of our apartment! We loved that that there were amazing spots to sit outside and relax. A small grocery store and bakery is less than a minute's walk away, starbuck's is a 10 minute walk the opposite direction, the gaslamp district is a short uber ride down the road, and the zoo is very close too! The foliage is a bit overgrown and could be cleaned up a bit. The only reason they get a 4 and not a 5 is because we didn't love the bed (it was not very comfy), the sheets didn't smell or feel the greatest, and the wifi didn't always work the best. Otherwise the owners are very sweet! They provide laundry services, detergent, there was hair and body wash in the shower when we arrived which was great since I craved a shower immediately upon arrival and forgot my own washes. It was overall amazing.

Great house to stay in

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay at. Always supportive and understanding. Had everything I needed and the location was 10 minutes from the gaslamp and 15 from Coronado island. Great place and will be staying here in the future

Comfortable tropical oasis in the city

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect vacation reantal us. At a very reasonable price over the holiday weekend, we were able to bring our dog along and he was comfortable all weekend. With its location, the space is perfect for both families who want to stay in and relax, as well as people who want to go into downtown or to the beach. For traveling with pets: Balboa park is within close walking distance and the grape street dog park is nearby, which makes it very convenient. Not to mention all of the little markets and most of the restaurants in the area are dog friendly. We were sad to leave the little oasis and will definitely keep it on our list of places for our next visit to San Diego.

The property is located in the heart of Golden Hill, a neighborhood of the original San Diego and has the charm of a historic and old neighborhood.  There are several local eateries that you can walk to including a cook your own steaks (Turf Club), Luigi's pizza, stone wood fired pizza, Humbertos, legendary Mexican Food, a couple coffee/sandwhich smoothie shops, Counter Point Wine Bar to name a few.  Golden Hill park is down the street with trails that lead to the trails of Balboa Park, which is 4 minutes away as well as the zoo.  Golden Hill is about 1 mile up the hill from downtown and makes for a great walk.  If you are too tired to walk back, the bus come within a couple blocks of the unit and goes straight there from downtown, the bay and gaslamp.   Access to all major San Diego freeways are just a few blocks away.
