Our kids loved playing in the sand and water on the bay side. We enjoyed being able to walk to get food, smoothies and coffee within minutes. The house itself had very comfortable beds. We greatly appreciated that we were provided beach towels, chairs and sand toys. The outdoor patio was our favorite part of the home to relax and eat our meals as a family. We enjoyed all communications with Cyndi very much! She was very welcoming and answered all of our questions in a very timely manner.
Hello Brandy, (The Kingfisher guest)
Thank you so much for the great review. I loved having you and your family. What excellent guests you are to have.
I am so very happy that you had a great time at The Kingfisher. We find our guests really like the home and our location.
I hope you will come back and stay with us again. Thanks again Brandy.
Perfect San Diego getaway, in every way!
We're ready to pack our condo up and move to this romantic getaway! It's neat, clean, and just lovely. You cannot beat this location since you're looking at a fantastic view of the Bay. You can walk a few streets over for the more lively Ocean view. Check off sunrise and sunsets everyday. Plus some great local restaurants make it easy to walk everywhere. We'll definitely be back! Thanks, Cynthia for meeting us and setting things up!
Thank you Lynda, for such a great review. I love guests such as yourselves.
So happy you loved the home and the location.
And even more happy that you are willing to pack and move to our sweet rental.
Please come back anytime.
Nice little condo
This little condo was perfect for our family of 4.
The location was perfect and the manager was really nice.
However, there is few points which I think need to be addressed.
1/ it will be great if it was possible to move the shower head. The water was hitting the wall too high and our little girls were too small to get under the water.
2/ the wifi is really weak in the master bedroom. It was almost impossible to use it.
3/ there is no AC which wasn’t an issue but, both fans (ceiling and stand up) in the master bedroom were pretty noisy. Also, the AC units from the neighbors are very close to the bedroom sliding doors. They were also very noisy. It is hard to sleep with opened windows.
4/ a check in at 4pm and a check out at 9am with no flexibility is a bit harsh. I don’t thing the housemaids need 7 hours to clean up the space.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay!
Thank you for your comments.
And we were happy to accommodate your special requests for your arrival.
The shower head was lower and we had several requests to raise it for the adults. I guess we would not be able make it a good height fit for everyone.
I am short but most people are much taller than I. ;) Hence the middle ground.
We have requests...yes for fans with white noise, hence the normal fan. Generally older adults like a white noise for good sleeping. As for the ceiling fan, no one has mentioned it, but I will take a listen to it, I don't recall it being loud . Again, I have more people who like a white noise than not. I do my best to accommodate.
As for cleaning, you will not find a cleaner, rental than ours, all 6. In the summer, we are not flexible in the arrival or departure hours, as was stated on the webpage, contract and arrival, so no surprises.
But, In the off season Sept - May, we can accommodate earlier and later departures. With Summer guests who tend to be more active with larger numbers using the rentals, and there seems to be a lot more cleaning needed to get it back in the immaculately condition I like and need for each guests. Most VR rentals are a quick wipe and gone and hope the guests do not notice. And I would rather have it right before you arrive, then come back and do it over.
Like any business, this rental business has specific hours for a reason.
My hours are not harsh just have them from a business reason, like greeting each guest upon arrival. And accommodating special arrangement requests, like you had. Again they are more flexible in non summer seasons.
The comments, I receive most, "your home looks just like the pictures" and its one of the cleanest I have stayed. My goals are to achieve that exact comment.
A visiting vacationer told me this morning, that she was so pleased with the home, and that the last place they rented, was not very clean and well cared for.
So, I will continue to give it my best at all times.
Beautiful and relaxing
I'm not sure how you can get much better than a waterfront location on the quieter and relaxing bay-side of the peninsula, knowing that the ocean (and louder, crazier boardwalk) is only a 5 minute walk! The condo itself was just right and very clean. We really enjoyed our stay!
Thank you Kathleen, it was great to have you and your family come stay at The Kingfisher and I am so pleased that you had a great visit and were totally happy with the accommodations. Yes the location is perfect, right on the bayside beach. I am also so pleased that you found the home to be just right and perfectly clean. Thank you thank you and come again anytime.
Perfect balance between quiet and cozy on the bay to lively surf on the beach. Would definitely go again
What wonderful guests you and your family were.
Thank you for the great review.
Many seasoned vacationers prefer the bayside to the ocean front for its quieter nature and easier access for families with small children to play right out front of your patio.
This beautifully remodeled two bedroom, beach and waterfront rental, called The Kingfisher, is unique in that it is surrounded by water with both the Bay just out your front door and the ocean just steps away to the west. There are miles and miles of gorgeous sandy beaches for exploring, strolling, sitting and playing at for your pleasure. We are famous for our beaches, our culture, our diverse restaurants, San Diego Zoo, proximity to Mexico, outdoor activities, and our natural beauty as a city. There are world class golfing, fishing, sailing, museums and theater all through out the year. We are a leading area for conventions and attract many corporations which hold their annual meetings at our downtown convention center.
Other Activities: Rowing
Golf: We are located near the world class greens of Torrey Pines, just minutes away for your golfing adventure.
There are also other golf choices nearby too.
