San Diego is known for its year-round sunny skies, pleasant temperatures, and beautiful beaches. And right in the middle of it all, this resort is ready to host you in one of the greatest cities in California.
Your downtown, art deco–style resort consists of 68 units that are either studios or one-bedrooms units, each with a fully equipped kitchen. The five-story completely renovated property was built in 1928. While you're here, walk over to the historical and always lively Gaslamp Quarter (.5 miles away) for dinner in one of Fifth Avenue’s hot spots, such as Rei Do Gado, Croce’s, or, if you really want to splurge, The Fish Market.
You may want to block off some time for Balboa Park—only .25 miles from the resort. The park is akin to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park or New York City’s Central Park and is, in fact, the nation’s largest urban cultural park, coming in at 1,174 acres. With eight gardens, 15 museums, nine restaurants and cafes, a golf course, the San Diego Zoo, a puppet theater, golf course, and the world’s largest outdoor organ (and this isn’t even a close to a complete list), you could do something different in Balboa Park every day for the next two months.
Water lovers will also find endless possibilities. Cruise the bay on a boat excursion. Hang ten at Pacific Beach. Watch for whales at the Cabrillo National Monument. Scuba dive or snorkel off La Jolla Cove, where you’ll find an aquatic ecological reserve just waiting to be explored.
Visit all 15 museums, the San Diego Zoo, numerous gardens, hiking and biking trails, or try out one of the many restaurants located in the park. .25 miles from the resort.

I rent out my WorldMark timeshare -- 120+ resort locations all over the US, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Fiji, New Zealand, and England.
While last-minute short-stay accommodations are sometimes possible, please be smart about your expectations. Keep this helpful hints in mind:
1. Holidays and summer weekends book up months in advance.
2. If it's less than a month before any kind of holiday, concert, or event, it's likely already booked up. Accommodations in Indio and Palms Springs sell out within the HOUR of Coachella tickets going on sale, but it's the same two weekends every year, so plan ahead and you'll get what you want.
3. You can book as far as 13 months out.
4. If you book more than 10 months out, there is a 7-night minimum.
5. If you want to book a Friday or a Saturday, there is a three-night minimum -- unless you are booking within 48 hours of check-in (4pm). Very occasionally I am able to accommodate shorter weekend stays. It doesn't hurt to ask, but please don't be disappointed if I must say no.
I have units that can accommodate as many as eight people. Have more than eight? You can rent more that one unit! The Maximum Occupancy listed on the listing is as true as gravity and cannot be adjusted for any reason because the Fire Marshal said so. Respect the Fire Marshal's wisdom.
Almost all units have a complete kitchen. In addition to full-size appliances, you'll find plates, glasses, silverware, and other kitchen items. All linens, including towels, are included. You have access to all resort amenities -- that means the pool, the hot tub, the gym, free parking, etc.
Sadly, the resorts do not allow pets.
Wifi is $4.95/day or $15.95/stay. This is 100% a resort fee that I have 0% control over.
This is a timeshare. Someone at the resort might (but probably won't) try to talk you into buying a timeshare. They'll even give you a present if you say yes! Saying yes means dealing with them for the next two hours, and that's *not* why you went on vacation. BE SMART - SAY NO - GO ENJOY YOUR VACATION! :)
We've had too many bad experiences with guests from Orange County, California. If you are a current or former resident of Orange County and would like to rent from us, kindly be kind in your messages; we'll get the hint that you're a decent person and will welcome you with open arms.
