Guestbook comments from the manager

"A single mother of four and grandma to one, 46-year-old Maria has been battling breast cancer when -- despite multiple chemotherapy threatments -- she developed brain metastasis as well. Devoted to her family, Maria worked tirelessly to make sure their days and routines were as normal as possible. Her one dream was for a special getaway full of happy moments and the opportunity to ignite her children's passion for creativity by showing them a new city and wild animals from around the world. They enjoyed several relaxing days by the ocean, thanks to Dana Horne Vacation Rentals, and fun outings to SeaWorld San Diego and San Diego Zoo. Her favorite part of the trip was watching her children enjoy themselves and getting a break from her treatment. Maria said, 'Thank you for giving us so much. It was the chance to be free from hospitals and to leave memories for my children.'" "Lions and Tigers and Bears!" The Dream Foundation Newsletter. Vol 1. From the Heart (2013): Page 10. Print.

We are so glad that we could help provide a moment's solice for Maria and her family. Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time. Thank you to the Dream Foundation for allowing us to help families find some quiet time together.

Perfect Location w/Incredible Views!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great "home away from home" for us! The wrap around views were incredible to wake up to everyday, with the bay on one side and the ocean on the other. The penthouse amenities were just what we needed for our family reunion. The beach is just a few blocks away and all other attraction areas of San Diego are just a quick 15 minute drive (in any direction). Becky was also a wonderful host: super responsive and uber helpful! I'd highly recommend this place for any family/group looking for a "home away from home". We look forward to coming back in the future if the opportunity arises. Thank you so much!

Amazing view, spacious, great location!

  • 4 of 5

This house was pretty amazing. The living room had mirriors from wall to wall which showed great views of the coast, brought in a lot of light, and made the space seem bigger. No physical keys were needed, just access codes which made everything pretty easy. The host responded right away whenever I had a question. The overall set up of the house (furniture, decorations, accommodations, etc.) was definitely up to par. The only downside I will say is that I did not appreciate her assumption that just because my group was young, she was anticipating noise complaints. It was how she worded it that made me feel like I was automatically irresponsible , which was not the case as she confirmed NO COMPLAINTS from other guests were received on the weekend of our stay. But other than that, everything was great!

Stop looking for another property right now!!!

  • 5 of 5

You've found the perfect place!!! We were in San Diego for our sons wedding, and stayed at this beautiful penthouse property for 9 days with family. I will start out by saying the pictures of the unit online are gorgeous, but do not give the view the justice it deserves, as with its floor to ceiling windows, it is absolutely mesmerizing. The dolphins, seals, birds, sailboats, fishing boats, kayaks, etc passing through the channel were all so fascinating to watch! The condo itself is very spacious, comfortable, well stocked, and abundant with comfortable seating, and cozy beds. There are plenty of linens, towels, pillows etc making it a very comfortable stay. We only cooked a few times in the unit, but had no problem finding what we needed to pull off our meals. No air conditioning, as most San Diego properties, but plenty of fans, we were never uncomfortable. There is some air noise because of it's proximity to the airport, but we got used to it so fast, it never bothered us. It's an easy walk to small grocery, street front eateries, and the bay. The ocean and beach are literally steps away. Being at the end of the boardwalk, it is much quieter than a bit north in the heart of Pacific Beach, but an easy stroll or bike ride if you want to be in the throb of it. Dana Horne Realty was easy to work with, on top of communications, and sincerely want you to have the time of your life! Should you find yourself in need of a unit this size, this is the one.....again.... that view!!!!

Can't say enough about the views from this house...Outstanding!

  • 3 of 5

Our stay was great, only thing is this house does not have AC and during our stay their were

heat warnings, the house was HOT with little to no breeze which made sleeping uncomfortable. Each room had fans but were not enough. With the windows open constantly

allowed the loud noises from none of us slept that much. There were some other small things about the house that added up enough to give this house a 3 star rating.

Spacious property with killer views!

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for our large group. Beautiful living space with plentiful kitchen supplies, linens, etc. Comfortable beds. Dolphins and seals seen in the water right outside. I was surprised by the amount of airplane noise, however, but it's quite close to the airport so I should have anticipated that. It's super close to Sea World if that's on the agenda!
