  • what a beautiful apartment

    "My husband and myself stayed here for our 2 year anniversary, and let me tell you... WOW! This apartment was immaculate! When you first walk in they have the doors open, windows open and you are staring right at the beach and ocean! The apartment itself was beautiful and updated as well. We couldnt get the TV tonwork or dvd player BUT honestly who needs all that when the beach is right in front of you! There are big beautiful windows that lead to the balacony where we spent most of our time because the beach is literally right there, I'd say the water is about 40-50 yards away! Man I just cant say enough good things about this place lol. The bed was also comfy as well as the couch to take naps on with the doors open and ocean breeze. Apartment is close to shops and the pier, about a 5 min walk. Theres an awesome bad within 30 secs of the apartment called "ye old plank inn" which is such a fun bar with amazibgly delicious bloody marys! If you cant tell by my review, I'd highly recommend this apartment!! We will def go back!!"

  • Little Italy delight

    "Our family enjoyed our stay in Little Italy. Ralph met us at condo and welcomed us to the neighborhood. The condo is comfortable and has a neat eclectic style. The location is excellent to walk to most attractions and enjoy the neighborhood cafes. It felt like home and we had a lovely time. I would highly recommend Ralph's condo!"

  • Sailing High at the Boat House!

    "Our stay was exceptional. After 18 months of Chemo Therapy we needed a rest and this rental was just what the doctor ordered. Charming, quaint and lots of room for the grandkids visits. We had high expectations and they were met for sure! The only drawback was the grill being a flight of stairs away from the kitchen!"

  • Wonderful condo, everything you need and more!

    "We decided at the last minute to cancel our hotel at Mission Bay and book this condo close to Mission Beach AND Mission Bay! We are so glad we did! Nicky was super helpful in getting our last minute reservation squared away. Close enough to the beach (and bay side) for easy access, yet not on the beach where you have passersby looking at you and into your living room all day/night. Condo was very private and the high fences enclose the patios. The inside was roomy enough for our family of four (twin 11 yr olds) yet cozy. Kids had their own room with twin beds, bath and tv (what a treat for them!) and we had the same in our room with a king bed. The living room, kitchen and dining area had everything we could ask for. Nicky anticipated the needs of her guests and made sure to stock the condo with everything. Cheese grater, check; blender, check; plastic wine glasses, check; fans, check! The garage has al the gear you need and though we brought our own we used some of theirs as well. Beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler, bikes (no helmets so bring your own). Beach towels in the house. There is a washer/dryer too! The garage is very good sized though would not accommodate our full sized suburban. For the few percent of you driving a suburban renting this condo Nicky & Marty helped us squeeze our car into a wedge of a legal space adjacent to their house-yeah! I think 99% of the other cars on the road will fit and be perfectly happy! A few items to note... *my kids brought their razor scooters and helmets and that was a super way to explore the area as we walked. *The grocery (Ralph's) was at the other end of Mission Beach so once we found it we planned our shopping trips accordingly on our way back from excursions in the car. If you are flying in or coming late at night pack a few things for the morning-like coffee!! I saw a liquor store nearby and I assume they have basic food items as well we didn't check it out. There is a Starbucks a few blocks away. Ask Nicky, not sure what else is convenient. *bring ziplocs to use for ice bags in the cooler. *though there is no beach/ocean view we found the privacy and all the amenities outweighed the lack of view. *Belmont Park is close by and though a little seedy at night was fine for us on a Thursday night. I found discount coupons online and that was a bonus! Wonderful location, nice condo, great linens (bonus) and hospitable hosts!"

San Diego County Travel Tips

The coastal community of San Diego is the second-largest city in California. Originally, the area was inhabited by the San Dieguito and La Jolla Native American tribes before it was established as the first European settlement by Spain during the mid-1500s. The city has experienced substantial growth since its founding, and has changed hands between Mexico and the U.S. throughout its extensive history.

Located approximately 120 miles south of Los Angeles, this shoreline community rests along the the U.S.-Mexico border in southern California. San Diego experiences a warm climate throughout the majority of the year, with most of the annual precipitation falling between December and March. Winter weather is mild, and temperatures rarely drop down to the freezing point. Visitors should pack light, with a few pairs of shorts, sunglasses and a bottle of sunscreen, and possibly a light jacket or sweater for twilight chills or day trips near the Pacific.

Oceanfront Activities

With its close proximity to the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean, the city of San Diego boasts a wealth of waterfront activities and tourist attractions. The subtropical climate presents comfortable conditions for visitors interested in spending a day or two enjoying outdoor excursions and the natural beauty of the area.

- SeaWorld San Diego is an adventure theme park that features a wide selection of thrill rides, animal encounters and engaging performances. Get your adrenaline pumping on the steep drops and arching curves on the double-launch Manta roller coaster, or enjoy an interaction with dolphins and other creatures of the deep that call this park home. Acrobatic aquatic performances feature the talents of numerous marine-dwelling mammals, who launch themselves high into the air and engage in death-defying stunts that will surely take your breath away.

- The beaches of San Diego stretch out on 70 miles of pristine coastline and offer guests the opportunity to lay out over white sands and soak up some California sunshine. Join locals in a game of sand volleyball at Mission Beach or compete in the sand castle competition at Imperial Beach in the south bay. Ocean Beach is nestled between the San Diego River and the rolling hills of Point Loma, and often presents prime conditions for surfing, swimming and other waterfront frivolity.
