You can just relax at the beach or participate in numerous water activities. Sightseeing is abundant from visiting La Jolla, the pearl of San Diego, to Sea World, the San Diego Zoo, Mexico, the floating Naval museum - The Midway. The opportunities are endless for everyone with every kind of taste. We are conveniently located to all these activities.

                          Golf: World Famous Torrey Pines Golf course is just minute from your rental. Nothing compares to the view at the top of La Jolla on the green over looking the Pacific Ocean

                          Ski: In the winter season, there is Skiing just 3 hours north in the mountains of San Bernadino, just east of LA.

                          Many locals, will take a day trip, for a quick drive, to the slopes.
