Great location, small apartment

  • 3 of 5

Pros: Wonderful location, steps from the beach. The owners left great information about the area and a complimentary bottle of wine which was a very nice touch. The property manager Megan was very responsive and handled a problem that arose at the beginning of stay promptly and efficiently.

Cons: The apartment was very small and there is a fair amount of road noise since it is right off Mission Drive. The bedrooms need curtains or some other way to block the light; the blinds aren't enough. The bathroom really needs some additional hooks and/or shelves so that you can have room to store toiletries, towels, etc. It would also be nice if the amenities were a bit more updated - tv, games, books. Also, the check-in and check-out procedures weren't very clearly communicated and the need to call and meet the property manager in order to get the keys upon arrival is cumbersome.

Owner's Response: Winkles Lady.....Deborah was a fussy guest. We are located closer to the beach than Mission Blvd and guests enjoy ocean waves not traffic noise. We’ve never had this complaint. This guest also never replied to the multiple check in emails , we send prior to arrival , to arrange for check in with our property manager. Our apartments are all equipped with multiple board games, cards and guide books. We provide in the apartment a local guide to attractions and restaurants ( which the guest complimented us on) but apparently failed to read in this document the check out details. Just leave the key and lock the door!

Great location with ocean view and breezes.

  • 4 of 5

This 2 bedroom apartment had all the amenities and space we needed. Management was attentive. It was close to public transportation which we used for the first several days and had parking once we rented a car. Even though not air conditioned, our stay over the 4th of July was very comfortable which pleasantly surprised us. The location was great(1/2 block away) for the fireworks display from individuals at Pacific Beach and the bigger production from Mission Beach.

Really great place!

  • 5 of 5

If want the beach a half block away - and you want a really nice place at a really great price, this is it. We had all we needed there at the apartment when we got there and through our stay. Management is very nice. Place is very clean and fresh. Location is great! Lots of restaurants and shops very close. Walk down the boardwalk for maybe half a mile and there is a great amusement park called "Belmont Park". Kids just loved it!

THE perfect place for my wife and myself on vacation. Steps to the beautiful San Diego beach. Spotlessly clean. Property manager was a doll and nothing was too much to ask. Not that we had to ask for much - this place had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. We will definitely return next year to this cute, beachy, very well run apartment!!!

Perfect Location - CLEAN and Spacious!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved this great find! Steps from the beach on a quiet street with plenty of parking, we couldn't ask for a better location. The unit was modern and spotless with COMFY beds and great cross breezes with the windows open. Our neighbors were delightful and fun to share tips with and both were repeat renters, one young family all the way from Germany! The area is safe, the management was prompt to answer all of our questions, before and during our trip and when we requested dates for a second stay recently, they offered us a generous DISCOUNT for "repeat bookings" with no prompting from us! Can't say enough good things about this management company and rental unit!
