The property is gated and the apartment includes a parking space inside the gated property. There are coin-op washers and dryers just outside your door for your convenience. The long-term residents are friendly and will guide you to the local spots in Golden Hill, South Park and Downtown! It is located near freeways, public transit and is very walkable, although hilly hence the Golden HILL name!

~A review from the current/1st guest~
Living in the submarine apartment in Golden Hill has truly allowed for the perfect introduction to San Diego. The apartment itself is a completely renovated basement in a quiet gated area with two eclectic apartment buildings. Janella subtly themed the apartment around an old submarine door which screams San Diego. The apartment is huge and has an open lay out furnished with everything you could need for any length of stay. I have been on a travel nurse assignment while working on my masters so luckily there is an awesome little study nook in the apartment. There is even a private patio out back complete with beautiful potted succulents. Golden Hill is a perfectly centralized location. Some of my favorite spots in the city are walking distance from the apartment. Dark Horse Coffee Roasters is a few blocks away and will change your life, along with Mosaic Yoga.

There are other restaurants and bars in the neighborhood and even an awesome “night spa” called Girl on the Go. My husband and I have walked downtown to Little Italy several times, but you can also take an Uber for $5. Janella and James have been a pleasure to work with. James has graciously responded immediately to anything we needed during the past couple of months. I am thankful to have found SD Urban Rentals!
