The location is absolutely stellar - tucked into Little Italy just steps away from restaurants, coffee shops, fun, bars, markets, shops, flowers, the waterfront. It'a great clean space flooded with natural light - very restful on the eyes and the psyche.

This studio is a unique place with a large living space on the main floor and a loft with a bed. It is very well located in Little Italy, which is lively on the weekend. There's plenty within walking distance including a ton of restaurants. It is close to the Harbor and only $8-12 Lyft ride from the airport. It is a 15 minute walk to the hotels near the convention center, so very convenient for my conference. Directions and communication were excellent.

The apartment is exactly as shown on pictures. We appreciated plenty of space in the living room being there with two kids. The neighborhood is lively and not very quite at night. However this did not bother us too much. Great connection to the convention center.

The best feature (among many) of this apartment is the location! It's exactly where you want to be if you're looking to stay in Little Italy. The apartment itself was spacious, clean, comfortable, with the most beautiful tall windows overlooking downtown. Yes, there is some street noise but it was relatively mild and didn't bother us up in the bedroom/loft. We met Rachel's mom, who was very helpful and friendly and helped coordinate our parking spot a few blocks away (it was a quick walk to the apartment). We would definitely stay here again next time we come to SD!

Great open, airy unit in Little Italy, above Harbor Breakfast Restaurant and Isola Pizza Bar (hint: try their $5 Margherita Pizza during their daily (closed Mon) 3-6PM Happy Hour). Up a flight of stairs, the bed is extremely comfortable and AC and fan next to the bed help promote a good night's sleep. We enjoyed the unit itself and the location in Little Italy, which is admittedly touristy but also charming, lively, and unique. The unit is a short walk to Harbor Drive, where those who like to run and walk will be very happy as you will be right on the water. Although the listing rightfully indicates "No Parking on Premises," Rachel was kind enough to let us use a spot at the building in which she resides (hint: best for compact cars), which is approximately a 5 minute walk from the unit. This was invaluable and much appreciated. I met both Rachel and her Mom Shelley-they are both friendly, warm people. In short, great rental and highly recommended, especially for mobile individuals/couples who desire to be in the Little Italy area of San DIego.
