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.
