The studio is one end of a private home but is completely separate.The neighborhood is central, and within walking distance to many shops and bars. It is also freeway close, and within walking distance from the Washington Street Trolley. And it is a 2-minute drive up to Hillcrest, our gay area of town, and one of the most lively. It is also a mile from UCSD Medical and Scripps Mercy Hospital if you are a physician in training.

You are 10 minutes from the beach, and 20 from the Mexican Border and North County (for the best surf!).-Trolley and Bus Lines to downtown or Hillcrest, Little Italy, or Old Town around the corner. The bus stop is a 4 minute walk, and the trolley station (Washington St) is 7 minutes. There are bus schedules/routes in the apartment to peruse.My very first guest baked biscuits one morning during her stay, which is a testament to how comfortable and easy living in Fordham Studio is. I think you will be just as comfortable despite it's size, and I hope you enjoy your time in San Diego.
Belinda was an excellent host, she provided us with all necessary things to be comfortable at the apartment. We enjoy our stay in San Diego and I would really recommend this studio apartment to any guest who wishes to visit San Diego in the future!
Lindi's studio is brand new and made our stay very comfortable. It's conveniently located in the heart of San Diego, close to any tourist destinations such as Sea World, Old Town as well as the beautiful shores along the coast. Moreover, according to the locals, Mission Hills is one of the safest areas of the city. Next time, we'll definitely choose her place again.
