Thanksgiving 2016 Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Stayed the week of Thanksgiving and had a fantastic vacation! We absolutely love San Diego and would return to this condo! Cynthia was very pleasant and easy to deal with throughout the entire process. The unit was spotless and comforting and in a great quiet area right on the sand. Mission and Pacific beaches are packed with restaurants, nightlife and places to shop. I would recommend Better Buzz right around the corner for coffee and a light breakfast. Can't wait to return!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

I brought my wife and 3 small kids from West Australia to tour the US. We left San Diego as our last destination to get some downtime before flying back to Australia. Proved to be a good decision as the accommodation and owner were equally pleasant. Close to beach, amens and Sea World. We felt at home. Would recommend this place anytime.

Absolute GEM!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is awesome! So awesome, I hesitate to write this review in fear it will become too popular!!! Our experience started with our relationship with Cyndi, the owner, who was incredible. She was patient with all of our questions and our need to have this be perfect for our young family. Also, during our trip, Cyndi responded to emails, within minutes (!), and answered any questions we had.

Once we arrived, we realized what a gem we had found! The condo itself is incredibly clean and the furnishings were not only comfortable and usable, but looked like the perfect beach house! We have two children (5 & 8) and they loved their room with the single beds as much as we enjoyed our king sized bed! The view to the bay right out the door was beautiful and we ate every single meal on the deck, watching the people stroll and ride their bikes by. When we wanted, we strolled over to the pacific beach side (literally a 5 minute meander) and took in the gorgeous waves and sea breeze.

We found lots of restaurants and shops close by, but to be honest, the place was so awesome that we literally stayed "home" nearly the entire week.

The only tiny downside to this property was the shower was tricky for our children - it was not a tub (which would have especially been easier for our youngest) but it was also at a bit of a weird angle, so it was difficult to help the children wash up (particularly their hair) without just getting in with them. However, this was nothing compared to all the great things about it!

We will absolutely be coming back - it is just a matter of when! And, we saw that Cyndi rents out other condo directly beside or nearly beside the Kingfisher, so we are thinking of having a few families come down together!

We highly recommend this spot, especially for young families and older couples who want the proximity of the ocean but not the busyness.

Owner's Response: This family is just a good hearted, grateful group. From the moment they arrived they were so excited and the kids were wide eyed about the beach and having a great time. They were delightful to work with and it was a pleasure to offer them this great place to stay. I have said it many times over the 25 years, but having such pleasurable people grace our vacation rentals is what makes all the hard work and the 24/7 hours worth it. The Kingfisher is a great place and the beach front location is the best. I look forward to having them and their friends come again any time. We love our neighbors to the North.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My 4 young adult children and I stayed at this beautiful condo last week and it exceeded our expectations for comfort (the beds were great), cleanliness, and location. It was our first time in San Diego and Mission Beach spoiled us! The condo's location right on the Bay was so peaceful and we felt at home. I personally enjoyed waking up to watch the sunrise in the morning right on the back patio, and hopping a couple of blocks over to see it set in the evening! Cyndi was so friendly and made us feel comfortable. She was easy to reach with questions and gave us the first impression of how nice people are in Mission Beach! Being within walking distance of beaches, shopping and great food was wonderful. I would definitely recommend this condo to others and look forward to returning in the future, as there are so many more places to explore than could be done in a week's time.

Owner's Response: Thank you most whole heartedly. I am honored to have had you and your family coming together in honor of your occasion. You all were wonderful and it was a pleasure to host you and your family. I am both grateful and blessed to have such respectful guests such as yourselves. Having you have had such a great stay and fun time in Mission Beach, is what we are about. San Diego is such a lovely city to explore and the wonderful things to see and do are endless. We welcome you back to our rentals anytime. Please do come back again. Best Regards Cyndi

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.
