I found the apartment and location to be perfect. My only regret is I had to leave. I loved the proximity to the park and the location in general. It was very easy to communicate with the landlord leading up to and during the stay, and the apartment itself was ideal. It was very well-appointed but also very comfortable and felt like home. I also took good advantage of the outdoor patio. I couldn't recommend this place more highly.John P.

Great Long-Term Rental
My family of four (me, my wife, and two daughters - age 9 and 10) stayed in this condo for five weeks. The brief summary is that we would stay here again. The photos represent the building and unit well and I agree with everything written by James B, except we did not spend as much time on the wraparound patio.
My wife spent the most time in the unit, as she worked "from home" while my daughters were at camps and I was traveling throughout California for work. She thought the location was great and the cross-breeze through the condo was perfect when the patio doors are open. We did find that the unit retains the heat generated throughout the day and made it warm at night. But don't worry -- this unit has air conditioning and we slept comfortably! The condo and complex was also secure, with electronic locks on all entry ways and automatic garage doors.
My daughters shared the front bedroom and enjoyed their space over the five weeks. They thought the bed was fantastic and slept well every night. The adjustable bed in the master is a benefit that my wife and I did not use, but I can see the value.
Aside from the amenities, the property owner, Rich, was very accommodating. For example, our flight was three hours late, which meant we did not get to the condo the first night until 2AM. We had an issue getting into the garage and Rich was available via phone the entire time to ensure we made it in safely and provide a different parking pass. He checked in every week and was very receptive to the positive and constructive feedback we provided.
I hope we have the opportunity to have a long-term stay in San Diego again and will be reaching out to Rich if we do.

Northpark Gem at Balboa!
I had the great opportunity to stay at the Condo neighboring Balboa Park for several months. The entire experience was incredible. The nicely appointed condo has two bedrooms (with memory foam mattresses), two baths, marble floors, state of the art stainless steel appliances, oversized whirlpool bath with glass enclosure, full size front load washer and dryer and I could go on and on. The wrap around patio is amazing! From a complete patio furniture set and two large sliding glass doors to the outdoor fireplace and lounge chairs, you will want to spend much of your time outdoors. Another little known secret is the penthouse barbeque area appointed with two upgraded stainless steel gas grills and covered patio area where you and friends can grill some steaks and enjoy the weather. The neighborhood is quiet and very private. The condo itself is located on the 2nd floor, but you wouldn't know it as the back half and patio is at the ground level with tons of shade trees and greenbelt out of the public view.
The condo is located across the street from the amazing Balboa Park, with tons of hiking and bicycle trails, museums and eateries to choose from. Also nearby are the Northpark and Southpark and Burlingame neighborhoods, each of which with their unique restaurants, pubs and architecture. Buona Forchetta, one of the best Italian restaurants in San Diego, is located within minutes.
The property owner is always a phone call away and sincerely wants you to have an enjoyable stay. He is always available to answer questions, provide helpful information about the area and will accommodate you in every way possible.
I can't say enough about my experience and only wish I could have stayed longer. This is actually my third long term stay in San Diego and this rental was my favorite. It was the nicest with a much lower price than the two previous. In my view, it was a tremendous bargain.
