  • Can't get closer to the beach than this!

    "My husband and I brought our parents out to San Diego for a long weekend to visit our son at college. We chose the Rockaway because of its location, as well as the fact that all bedrooms were on one level (our parents were not excited about a lot of stairs for an entire weekend). Everyone I worked with at Bluewater, from start to finish, was friendly and knowledgeable, even offering to help with restaurants for dinner. The weather was not great, so we did not spend much time out on the balconies, which was too bad, because the balconies, especially the front one, had great views. You have a front row seat to every sunset! The condo worked very well for us. It was clean and well equipped with the items we needed. The bedrooms were neat (one was a bit small, but it worked) and the beds were very comfortable, so much so that my husband now wants to buy the same mattress for our home! The master has a wonderful view of the ocean. From every bedroom, you can hear the ocean waves, which is a wonderful way to fall asleep! The bathrooms, especially the sinks and showers, must have recently been updated, as the showers were very clean, which is not always the case in a rental. The towels were wonderfully soft and white. It seems the whole place had a fresh coat of paint. Our minivan fit in the garage, but it was tight and there would not be room for a second car if you have a minivan. A few of the cons would be that the entire condo has vertical blinds, which are a bit dusty and hard to open and close. The master bedroom blinds did not close all the way after the second day. We called and someone came to try to fix them, but they could not be fixed. Good thing the window faces the sunset and not the sunrise! For some reason, the frig made a chirping sound only in the evening. We had no idea why. There are quite a few unnecessary items in the closets and kitchen cabinets that should just be cleaned out. Many of the metal surfaces (windows, closet doors, fans) were rusty because of the constant ocean humidity. Finally, it would be great to get rid of the febreeze smell that is pretty prevalent when you first walk in the door. These are small things that could be dealt with easily but they are certainly not deal breakers. The location was great for walks as well as car trips around the area. We really enjoyed our stay at the Rockway and would recommend it to others."

  • Great Vacation Rental

    "We just returned home from our stay in Oceanside. We traveled with our 3 year old daughter and 6 month old son. We have stayed at numerous vacation rentals with our kids and this rental was one of the best. Everything was provided for our kids at the rental, it made traveling so easy! The pool/hot tub were a huge hit with our kids, and the property and rental were well maintained and very clean. We loved our stay and would definitely stay again in the future! Thanks again for the welcome basket, it was a great treat!"

  • Spectacular

    "This rental was exactly as advertised. It slept my little family of 4 perfectly with room to spare. It is quiet and off the beaten path. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet. The beach is a short drive away and beach stuff is provided all you need to do is ask. The patio was great and enclosed. We ate our dinners out there and it kept my little one closed in and still let him run around. Peggy and her husband were accommodating and nice. Our youngest is approaching 2 and has started his screaming phase and I felt terrible. I was reassured it was okay and to not stress about it. We will definitely be going back next summer!!!"

  • Great location for family with kids

    "Excellent location: right on the beach, walking distance to a grocery store (with a good enough organic selection) and a pharmacy. We felt very safe with 4 kids, ages ranging between 2-7 y.o. We could have selected a similar property on the bay, 3 blocks away, but having a wonderfull view of the ocean and access to the ocean was a great choice. Ron was easy to deal with. I also felt comfortable giving him my credit card number, in part because his office is indeed within a few blocks away. We found it benefitial brining our own down pillows. Otherwise the property has all the basic nessesities. We would consider coming back next year."

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.
