"We stayed in the lower unit and loved it. The location is fantastic, a quick 1 minute walk and you're on the sand; walk another block and a half and you're at Belmont Park (close to the action & far from the noise)- home of the famous 90 year old Big Dipper wooden roller-coaster and other amusement park rides. We really appreciated, and made good use of, the included boogie boards and bicycles and we also rented a surfboard for $10/day from one of the local surf shops.
We traveled with our 3 kids (ages 14 to 23). The lower unit is probably best for 4 people as there is 1 queen and 2 twin beds. There is also a fold-out couch in the living room but since we'd get up earlier than the kids they chose to all sleep in the room with the 2 twin beds. It worked because the owner kindly provided an inflateable mattress which we just leaned against the wall during the day. There is no ac (typical for SoCal) but fans are provided and the evenings were pleasant.
We walked down quite a few of the neighboring courts and thought Ensenada Ct. was the most charming! This was our first family stay in San Diego and we definitely hit the jackpot with this South Mission Beach property! We look forward to returning for years to come!"

"I am very late in writing this review but I knew I would have to do it at some stage. My wife and I stayed in San Diego with another couple as we had heard so much about SD from friends. We booked online from the UK having done a load of research and we were not disappointed. The apartment suited our needs to a tee, and had all the necessary equipment needed for a holiday. The views to the beach and the sunset as we were facing due West were immense. The park outside was used several evenings but there was no trouble or noise whatsoever as the groups finished at a reasonable hour and cleared everything up after them. The owner of the bar underneath the apartment was most welcoming and gave us great advice where to visit in San Diego. The Duelling Piano Bar is a must see. Just around the corner from Hooters Bar - which we consider you should avoid! Also, just along the beach from our apartment is a new hotel (I can't remember the name) and again they welcomed us with open arms. we had many a beer and cocktail there - both in the bar and also at the outside area overlooking the beach. A must do in San Diego is the Hornblower Sunday Brunch Cruise - well worth the cost. Anyway, I could go on and on - but to conclude, the apartment was a fantastic base for our holiday and I am sure we will return, and if we do, this apartment will be our first choice. Thank you."

"My family was lucky enough to stay here for two weeks this summer, and we loved it! We have 3 kids, and there was plenty of space for everyone. The rooftop deck was a huge hit for watching the Sea World fireworks at night. The patio is spacious and a great place to sit and enjoy the weather. Perfect location for access to beach and bay and to rental places for kayaks, paddle boards, etc. Good restaurants and coffee shops nearby too. I really liked Better Buzz Coffee. The house is VERY clean and had everything we needed for cooking, going to the beach, etc. Parking is great too with a garage and an additional space … almost unheard of in Mission Beach! Thank you to Tina for a great stay!"

A beautiful, well appointed, comfortable, and secure luxury vacation rental !
"The Alicante building in Banker's Hill / Hillcrest neighborhood is by far the most well kept, secure, clean, and detailed high rise building in the area. The residents and management are all warm and friendly. We liked the location…a five minute walk to the Old Globe, Balboa Park, Zoo, Croce's Jazz Club, and San Diego's Hillcrest neighborhood with many great restaurants and bars. Grocery Shopping is close by, as is the Bus which stops in front of the building. It is a 5 minute drive to the airport and an $8. Uber fare. The underground parking (2) is very secure and the check in procedure simple and fast 24/7. Once you open the door to this beautiful flat you are immediately struck with the remarkable 270 degree views stretching from Balboa park to La Jolla, including the airport which is entertaining all day as you watch the jets weave between San Diego's towers. They are not loud as you are quite a distance from the airport itself. The view of San Diego's Big Bay is commanding and you can watch the many large ships arrive and depart…even the aircraft carriers and Cruise liners. The evening views are stunning as you are high atop downtown San Diego…the living room is large, the home entertainment center fantastic, with plenty of books to read on the shelves. There are two decks that include a full size BBQ and seating which is perfect for morning coffee or meals. The Kitchen complete with everything you need including a Keurig coffee maker and a view ! Both bedrooms have spectacular views from the beds, complete with televisions and roomy closets. The bathrooms are large with plenty of soap and towels. Internet worked fast and the motorized shades on the windows very convenient. Air conditioning kept us cool all day and night and there is even a small office cubby with a printer, paper, and extra ink. The owners really paid attention to detail down to the art on the walls. We loved our stay here and will be back many more times in the future. You can't stay in this level of luxury at this price anywhere in the world, let alone beautiful San Diego. A big THANK YOU !"
