Great manager, cozy, excellent location for young families

  • 4 of 5

Manager was wonderful to work with (prompt, professional, available but not hovering). House was cozy and well equipped (plenty of beach toys, umbrella, beach chairs, linens, kitchen well stocked). Location is PERFECT for young families (right on beach bay side, far enough from traffic of beach side and Belmont park to be calmer, slower paced, and MUCH quieter but a very short walk to restaurants and the bustle of mission beach). We did the San Diego rounds of Sea World (8 min drive), zoo, legoland (35 mins), USS Midway, and harbor cruise all of which were easy to get to from this location. Only constructive criticism I can offer would be for the shower. We found because of the position of the non-adjustable shower head it was difficult to wash the kiddos (I.e. they could not stand where the water would hit their heads because the water stopped shy of their height and wall prevented moving farther away... If that makes sense?). A shower head that could be raised or lowered, even a little bit, would have been a HUGE help for us as well as a shelf for soaps, razors, etc. There was a bit of construction noise for workers rebuilding a patio wall next door but hours were courteous and honestly we weren't there much during the day for it to bother us. Will definitely try to stay with this manager again when we return to the area. Overall wonderful experience of the city and rental.

Relaxing fun to watch all the people walking, jogging, and anurging else you can think of

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and very accurate to the pictures given on the Web page. Lots to do in the area from biking to walking. The water is a bit cool for us east coasters but others in the area did not seem to mind. I loved the 100% Sunshine everyday with breezes. Hope to return to property again in the future. Thank You for an Awesome Stay.

Yes, San Diego, especially Mission Beach is very active. Its what keeps us young at heart. I am so pleased you had a great stay and would welcome you back anytime. Have a great Spring Best to you Cyndi

A wonderful get-away on the bay

  • 5 of 5

Loved this condo which was right on the bay with a patio to enjoy the view. Also a very short walk to the ocean side to watch the surfers and the sure you walk out on the pier, where we saw a school of dolphins frolicking for about 20 minutes. The kitchen was very well appointed, the beds comfortable and Cynthia made sure everything was perfect for us. She gave us a quick primer on how to get essentials - coffee and groceries. She went above and beyond and had someone there in minutes when our one year old grandson shut the door, locking us out of our unit our first evening there! Thank you Cynthia!!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Thank you for your wonderful and kind review. We loved having you and you all were such respectful and kind guests. So happy you had a great time visiting our coast. Great suggestion to walk up to the pier. We are blessed in San Diego at Mission Beach, to have non stop and endless easy and wonderfully delightful things to do, right here. Please come again anytime. Best Regards Cyndi

No surprises here

  • 5 of 5

We just returned to Michigan from our Christmas visit in San Diego. If you review the website on this property you will know everything you need to know. The photos look just like the actual unit. No hidden surprises and Cynthia has thought of everything you could need. However, if you do have a question, or need to contact her, she is very good about responding quickly. This property is in a quiet residential area. Literally just out the blue gate is the Mission Bay boardwalk, and a nice sandy beach. Mission Beach is just about a block away and also has an oceanside boardwalk. Both are clean and well kept beach areas that are great for bike riding, running or just a leisurely stroll. The unit is clean and well maintained the kitchen was well equipped and there is also a stackable washer dryer that you can use during your stay. Towels and linens are included with the unit. Our college age daughter joined us for the visit and the unit worked out perfectly. Parking is tight so take her recommendations concerning the vehicle or plan to park just a little further down in guest/oversize parking. Belmont park is within walking distance along with a few local eateries. So much to see and do in the area. This is the perfect base to enjoy San Diego from, whether you have little ones who just want to play in the sand or you want to explore all that San Diego has to offer.

Thank you again, and please come again to any one of our rentals. Best to you and yours Cyndi

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!
