Recent San Diego County reviews

  • Our recent stay in in La Jolla

    "When we arrived at this home in La Jolla, we found it to beyond what we could have hoped for. The home was everything it was advertised to be and more. The property was very well maintained and the owner not only answered our questions, but made us feel comfortable from the first day. The home is fully furnished, spacious, and had outstanding appliances and plenty of dishes, etc. We had 4 children from 3-12, and five adults, and we could accommodate everyone comfortably. We were close to so many activities, we were never bored. We were able to make our day trips to the beach, the zoo, the safari park, take a cruise around San Diego Bay, go to a baseball game and come home each day so the kids could swim and spend time together. I don't believe we ate dinner out one evening--we could be comfortable and enjoy preparing our own meals while we were there, and there were grocery stores nearby. Even though this home belonged to someone else, we felt as if it were ours for an entire week. If we go back to the San Diego area, I hope this home is available because I cannot imagine staying anywhere else."

  • Beach house is great place to stay

    "This is our 2nd stay in the "Beach Cottage". This time we brought my Mom (Grandma/Oma) and she stayed in the separate MIL quarters with bed, counter, table, TV and privacy!. Worked great so she could get up when she wanted and retire for the night on her own terms as well. Love the location - 1 block from MB boardwalk and basically 1 block from Mission Bay boardwalk as well. Only negative of this rental is the location right on Mission Blvd...noisy in the morning hours. House is right at a 4-way stop sign so you can hear cars braking and then accelerating right next to bedroom window. Room for 2 cars to park off-street was a real advantage. Owner could add more coffee mugs to cupboards as well as we didn't use much other dishes and didn't want to do a load of 1/2 empty dishwasher. Loved and used the washer/dryer. Nice to have it. WiFi worked awesome. Would stay again in the future. Thanks David and Cindy!"

  • Perfect vacation rental in mission beach.

    "My wife and I had been to San Diego about a year and a half before our stay at Surfrider. We remembered it from our walks on Mission Beach and jumped at the chance to rent thus unit. It was as advertised in every respect. The unit was clean and well appointed with updated fixtures and appliances. The unit had a large tv with a great surround system, but the best entertainment was the ceiling to floor glass window right next to it. Sitting at the window or on that patio is the best way to enjoy a morning coffee or an evening cocktail. I had always heard of the "green flash" during sunsets over the pacific but on our first day there I saw it as I watched the sun sink over the ocean horizon. Our three kids were with us and I highly recommend the unit for families. You are literally a stones throw from the beach and on days when you are wondering what to do, the beach is always a great option in San Diego. We even had several meals at the condo and made use of the community grills. As far as the rental process, it was as smooth as possible. As with every rental you want to do your due diligence and Kurt certainly understands and is responsive to requests. Again this unit is a great value and comfortably accommodated our family of five. We will definitely be calling Kurt on our next trip to San Diego."

  • Family retreat

    "While the house served its purpose and was very pleasant, what was truly exceptional about our stay was the service from Bluewater. Every question or concern we had was dealt with beautifully; the Operations Director and his team made sure our stay was fantastic. Thank you."

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.

A feast for the eyes awaits any art connoisseur who ventures into the many galleries of this enlightening museum.

- The San Diego Air and Space Museum is a truly intriguing establishment that boasts a variety of early aviation vehicles as well as some modern-day engineering masterpieces. Discover the history of man’s fascination with flight, and gaze upon relics that carried early adventure seekers to their first ascent into the clouds.

Downtown San Diego

After dark, the city takes on a whole new persona filled with wild and enjoyable experiences that are sure to delight travelers who fancy a nocturnal adventure.
