Great Location and Very Clean

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late after landing in LAX. Property manager had started making contact with us about a week before our stay to make sure the time we would be arriving so she could meet us and let us in and give us the keys. She kept contact with us through out the day as we traveled , as it turned out we arrived later than expected and she had the condo open when we arrived and lights on and left the key where we could get it. Place was very clean and the location to the beach was only about a 2 minute walkaway and the beach is great at this location. We also had cooler, chairs, umbrella and water toys at our access. You can walk to many restraurants and stores. A short drive also to numerous other restaurants and stores. Downtown San Diego not a far drive either and plenty to do there. The only drawback and it is fairly minor, is the street parking that you need to use for this condo. It usually loosens up in the morning for a few hours and late evening. We had to park a block or 2 away a couple of times during our week stay. We had a couple of minor issues but they were taken care of promptly. The property manager and owner are easy to work with and will get back to you with an answer very very quickly. If you need a room in this area I would not hesitate to book this condo. I almost forgot, very nice boardwalk starts along beach at the end of this street. Great place for morning or evening walk you can walk along beach for a couple of miles plus!! Only about 10 minutes from La Jolla also.

Loved This Pet-Friendly Condo

  • 5 of 5

We are snowbirds from Canada and stayed in this condo for two winter months. We loved everything about it. The apartment was charming and clean, and we had everything we needed to be very comfortable. The condo is pet-friendly, which was a must for us, and leashed dogs are allowed on the beach after 4:00pm in winter (summer is 6:00pm). The owner and property manager were both very nice and helpful. You can't beat the location, with an ocean view from your living room and just steps from the boardwalk. The location in North Pacific Beach meant it was very peaceful, but close enough to easily walk to the many restaurants and stores. It only took minutes on the I-5 to get to Old Town, Downtown San Diego, Point Loma, Coronado, La Jolla, Torrey Pines, etc., so we did lots of sightseeing without putting a lot of mileage on our car.

So glad we stayed here!

  • 5 of 5

This place is as charming on the inside as it is on the outside. And the location? Fabulous! you can see the beach from the building and we were on the sand in minutes. The kids loved the Crystal Pier! There is also an amusement park an easy bike or walk down the boardwalk and it's really great. The apartment was filled with everything we needed (although we didn't cook much - too many fun restaurants).

It was also very clean. Our only complaint: we had 2 cloudy days. And the price was not a budget-buster. We will be back next year. Maybe sooner.

Wonderful place, great location

  • 5 of 5

One of our best vacations ever. First - the place: charming apartment, spotlessly clean, nice people to deal with, all we needed right on the property. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for quick and beautiful beach access. Restaurants and shops and clubs are minutes away. The boardwalk, ½ block away, stretched for miles with fun things to do everywhere.

You will not be disappointed if you stay here. We're sending my brother and his wife to stay at this place.

Just the Best!

  • 5 of 5

My wife wanted a "beach birthday", and we are so happy with our week at this apartment. The whole process of getting it, checking and just being there was wonderful. We went out to eat most nights because there are dozens of great restaurants very close on the boardwalk and side streets. When we did eat there, we had all we needed to cook. Lots of fun clubs and music places nearby. My wife is a clean freak and this apartment met all her tests. A great vacation and a great place to stay.

Perfect place, perfect location, perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a "birthday" vacation for my son and we wanted it to be perfect. It was. This apartment was practically on the beach and the boardwalk. It was well furnished with everything we needed. It was clean as clean could be. Dealing with the owners was easy from beginning to end and they were a joy. Can't say enough good things!
