                            We couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The penthouse was very spacious and clean. I was everything as described and more. With everything we had planned the location was awesome. We also had our kids and grandkids come visit us at the penthouse and it was nice to have a place to cook dinner and visit. We also visited Sea World,San Diego Zoo, and Misson Beach and the penthouse was within 10 minutes to them. It was nice to leave the places and have a short drive back to our home away from home and relax on the nice patio and watch the fireworks from Sea World (which were awesome). I would recommend the penthouse to anyone taking a trip to San Diego who wants the home away from home feeling at a great price. Thank you Richard for having a great place to stay to enjoy our vacation. Julie and David Williams

                            Owner response: Thanks for your review regarding location and value. We do believe are prices are fair too.

                            This condo is the ONLY place I will stay in San Diego from now on. Great location, beautifully maintained and tons of storage. It exceeded my expectation, by far, and I have told everyone I know that this is where they need to stay if they visit San Diego. My family and I felt right at home from the first moment we walked in.

                            Everything the listing describes about this property is totally accurate. There was four people in our party and we were not disappointed at all! It was very clean and well taken care of too. The location was perfect for us and close to everything! When we booked the unit, Richard the owner was very quick to respond to our questions. This was a wonderful place to stay and we would love to come back here again in the future. We would totally recommend this condo to anyone coming to the San Diego area!

                            We loved this property. The location was wonderful. The inside was warm, inviting and had everything we needed. We felt at home as soon as we walked in and during the whole stay. Fashion Valley Mall is down the road, as is SeaWorld. The property was clean and tidy. The internet was fast and worked great. The owner was readily available and so helpful, driving me to the car hire place and offering rides. I will recommend this property to family, friends & all our followers at travelwithbender.

                            We came to San Diego for two weeks to be with our daughter, we has started her exchange year at Univ. of San Diego. We couldn´t have made a better choice, than coming to the Sea House Penthouse. It was very well located, not only to USD, but also to Mission Beach, the Beaches, Old Town, Mission Valley, etc. But what we really liked, that we felt like at home basically from the moment, that we entered the house. We were greeted with fruits, flowers and wine. The kitchen was very complete, even with things for breakfast (jam, butter, cereals, etc.), spices, sauces, etc. This made things so much easier. And the bedrooms were extremely nice, large and comfortable, haven´t slept better for a long time (also thanks to the ceiling fan in the master bedroom). There were also beach towels, a cooling box, sun umbrella, all very useful, when you have to come by plane from Europe, and cannot carry a lot of weight. We spent large periods of time on the terrace, with or without barbecue, or in the spacious living room, checking some e-mails or reading the newspaper. All very comfortable and pleasant ! The infos, which Richard had prepared for the visits to Old Town, La Jolla, Gaslamp Quarter, etc. proved very helpful and we followed many of his good advices. So we can fully recommend the Sea World Penthouse, with the risk, that it will always be booked out, and we won´t be able to find it available, when we want to come back to San Diego.

                            Recommended for: Families with young children, romantic getaway, tourists without a car, sightseeing, age 55+.

                            Owner response: Thanks Andreas for coming from Spain and enjoying our condo by the Bay. The Sea World Penthouse, as you said, is a home away from home. Hope to see you back here, if not, maybe in Spain next year.

                            We REALLY enjoyed our stay here and it was just perfect for our family's mini-vacation. The condo was spacious, bright, hip, and clean. We felt very comfortable when setttling in and it was more like our home away from home. The location was also a big factor for us as we had several things planned that week -- beach, concert, Legoland, etc, so we wanted to be somewhere with easy access to freeway and shopping. Oh and make sure you pack lightly, there are 3 flights of stairs to climb! Overall, our experience was superb and we definitly recommend this condo. Enjoy! -- Janie & Jonathan

                            My family and I absolutely loved this beautiful home. The balcony and the enclosed porch were awesome for the beautiful San Diego evenings. We were even able to see the fireworks display each night. The home is wonderfully equipped with most everything you can imagine needing while away from home. I recommend staying here if you are in the area.

                            Everything was perfect, from the clean, comfortable beds to the central location. Minutes from Sea world, Mission Beach, Old Town, Balboa Park and the Zoo, and all easy to get there from this great location. The neighborhood is quiet and parking was plentiful. Awesome views from the deck. Really appreciated the cooler and beach chairs, and our granddaughter loved the the toys and chalk board. We are really happy we chose this place. Thanks again, Richard!

                            Great location! Great location! Great location! Short distance to everything. We walked to the tram station from the condo for a short tram ride to Old Town San Diego where there's great food, entertainment and shopping. The penthouse met all our needs. Very comfortable and spacious. Great to have washer & dryer in the townhouse. Richard was wonderful & easy to work with. The biggest bonus is watching Sea World's fireworks show every night. It was as clear as day! Highly recommend if you want to be close to all attractions!

                            Recommended for: Girls getaway, families with teenagers, families with young children, sightseeing.

                            This place was great. Very clean and updated. We had 3 adults and 2 small children. Location is wonderful. The owners provided us with everything we needed for our toddlers. We plan on returning in 2014 to run the SD marathon. Only thing you need to be aware of is the steep hill you have to park on and the 3rd story climb of stairs to get to the place. It wasn't a problem for our family but it may for others.
